I have only cooked rice in the rice and steamer and the rice cooks perfect every time. I love the way it stays hot after it is done. Had a party here shortly after receving the cooker and the rice stayed hot all through the evening for people to come back and refill their plate.

I rent a small place where I work away from home. It is an old house without a dishwasher. I will get so busy at work , the dishes would be piling up in the sink! I have used this a couple of times and it is so convenient. My reason for the 4 stars instead of five is, it takes a while to hook it up and then leaks around the connection. I have to wrap a dish towel around it. To keep water from spraying everywhere.

I have this appliance, but without the steaming capabilities. I am very satisfied. Have had it for several months and have baked many items in it, also done some broiling. Today I used the rotisserie for the first time, cooked a 4 lb. chicken and it took just 1 hour and 20 minutes, was delicious. The directions for using the rotisserie are a little confusing in the owners manual. It is best to "play" around with the mechanism while the oven is cool to get the hang of it. As others have stated, tie up your meat tightly so that it turns evenly on the spit. I have quit using my gas oven, heating up and using this appliance is so much more convenient, and less energy wasted as well.

This little rice cooker is worth its weight in gold. It is the perfect size for our family of three and would be just as nice for a family of four or five. So glad I bought it.

This toaster was a gift to my daughter-in-law, and she loves it. The stainless fit right in with her other appliances. She said the toaster operates well and looks good too.

I was a loyal Krups coffee maker user for years, but their products have slipped in quality. I am very happy with this Cuisinart. It makes great coffee! It's quick, quiet, easy to use and doesn't dribble!I especially love the adjustable warming plate. Don't let refurbished scare you away. Looks new. Bye-bye, Krups!

This is a basic toaster with no frills. It is extremely lightweight - almost like a toy. I'm keeping it because it works, but I would never buy another. My previous toaster was made by Krups, and it was a superior product.

Had a Krups toaster oven that broke after five years. This DeLonghi oven, which we bought last month, did everything my previous oven did, only better. The panini function works beautifully. It can be bewildering to remember which oven pan and rack height/position to use for the type of food you're cooking, as there are many, many options, but if you follow the instructions, everything cooks fast and well. It takes about 4 minutes for the toaster oven to preheat so that the panini function can work. We're very happy with this purchase.

This was quite the deal! I'm thrilled with my new toaster. It said refurbished but it's NEW. No problems what so ever. The toasting is even, I love the fact that you can use just two slices at a time instead of heating all four. It had a smell the first few times using but that's gone. I would always check overstock.com before going to the store for any appliance I order in the future. This was a real deal. I'm very pleased and would recommend ordering from Overstock.com to anyone - in fact I have.

I use it at least once a day and I am completely happy with it. The first thing I noticed when using it, was that it toasts the bread much faster than my old toaster and it toasts the bead evenly and perfect every time. The toaster has wide slots, so you can toast bagels or thick bread as well as thin items.

I've had this coffee maker for six months. It makes excellent coffee--probably the best I've ever had at home. In the past, I have owned Krups, Bunn, and Mr. Coffee machines. This Kalorik makes coffee that is superior to all three.

The rice cooker is a good cooker if it wasn't for the poor teflon coating on the inside of the bowl. If the coating was more durable and lasted more than a few years, I would've given it at least a 4 star rating. Just prepare to buy a new one after a few years due to peeling of the teflon coating. I've never had any issues with coating coming up in other Japanese branded rice cookers that my other family members had for over 10 years. We have toddlers and this peeling of the coating represents some serious health hazards as it can come off and be mixed into the food you're trying to cook. We tried calling Krups customer service and they basically said tough luck, you're SOL since it's been out of warranty which is only 1 year. I would've expected more both in quality/durability and customer service from a company like Krups. I'll be buying the tried and true Japanese branded rice cooker from now on after this bad experience. If you only use this occasionally, you might not run into any issues but for someone that eats rice as a daily food staple, just be prepared to buy a new unit after a couple years.

I was disappointed with this blender compared to my old Krups. When I pulled it out of the box, I had a bad feeling because the base was noticeably lighter than my old one. Despite using more Watts, the motor on the Cuisinart blender doesn't have very good torque. This means more stopping and stirring by hand when making smoothies. It makes a really loud noise as well -- so loud I feel I need to cover my ears while using it. Overall it is a big step down from my old Krups blender.

I have given this item to several of my friends and a couple of them received an item that was not the correct dimensions and when they returned it and received the replacement it was the same item. The item works great, but does not match the description. It is much smaller.

Works well, just give it time. Isn't very heavy. For the price though it's a really good deal.

I ordered this for a rental of mine and although I have not personally used it, the appearance, size, price value, and features are just what I wanted and expected. I'll wait and see how the durability is with my renters! So far, I'm very pleased.

When the toaster was delivered, I couldn't tell the difference between this refurbished model and a brand new one. Its good looks and even toasting made it a good purchase for us.

We bought this about 5 years ago and its still grinding! besides the one time we had to clean the little slot where the fitting slides into place (very easy fix) it has worked like a champ! Highly recommened!

They offer convenience, no residual heat from cooking and, when compared with an oven or range, efficiency. With so much going for them, it's no surprise microwaves are so popular. If there was ever a drawback to having a microwave oven in the kitchen, it was that the appliance claimed too much valuable countertop real estate. But ever since microwave ovens were made to be installed over the range, that dilemma has ceased to exist. Installing a built-in microwave is really not that difficult, but what many people don't realize is that they need a dedicated 20-amp circuit installed in the cabinet directly above the microwave oven for the installation to be up to code. If you're not comfortable running your own circuit, hire a qualified electrician for the job. Once you have the circuit installed, you can then install a built-in microwave.

Selecting a slow cooker requires some consideration because slow cookers come in numerous sizes and offer a myriad of different features, so it's important to consider what size and features you want before buying.
