Delayed buying this mixer for years. SO wish I had gotten it sooner! It's a joy to use, and it really does an excellent job mixing everything I've used it for. It IS a heavy thing, so I cut a plastic place mat to the same size as the bottom, and set it on the mat. Now it slides out from its corner easily; when I'm done, it glides right back in, & that's the only thing I can think of that it needed. I did buy the smaller bowl, which is nice to have for a few egg whites or whipping a cup of cream, but it's not absolutely necessary; you can beat/whip even small amounts in the larger bowl that comes with the mixer. Very happy with this KitchenAid mixer.

This is simple to use and heats the water very quickly. I think, though that it would be better for health in metal than plastic.

Well designed blender. I bought it because of the good reviews and five-star rating. I should have thought to check if the bowl is glass. It is plastic. I wouldn't have bought it. Unfortunately, I had already unpacked it, or I'd return it.

althought I loved this product, the plactic broke after about 6 months. It still does work but I'm waiting right before the "big" party when in no longer clicks in to start chopping.

This is a good blender. I'm just disappointed that the part that looks like gleaming metal in the photograph is really just a piece of plastic.

Haven't plugged it in yet, but these are my aesthetic impressions-cheap finish, cheap plastic handle

I would have given the Nostalgia Snow Cone Machine 5 stars but I didn't get the plastic ice scoop But the product is excellent. Is easy to put together and the whole family enjoys the snow cones and/or iced drinks whenever we want.

This blender works great for the cost. The only complaint I have is that while it is blending, it gives off a plastic smell that is very bothersome. Perhaps it will wear off after more uses since I've only used it 6 times so far...

The carafe leaks and after one week I had spots of coffee everywhere. The spout is not well designed. Also, the time kept resetting on me.

This coffeemaker does not produce the same results as my 3+ year old Keurig Elite. I purchased this for work as I wanted a smaller sized Keurig for limited space at work. I ran this for three weeks, even tried a 4 day straight vinegar soak in the chamber. The coffee tastes horrible, like plastic. The smell is also bad. Upon internet research, I discovered that many others have experienced this same problem. I called Keurig and they are sending me a replacement, the Keurig Mini brewer. I am awaiting its arrival. We'll see if that makes a better tasting coffee.

It toasts fine but crumb catcher could be better. Every time I move the toaster crumbs are all on my counter.

Plastic taste in water, NOT MADE IN USA. Returned after 3 days for also leaking.

Operating smoothly is not easy - it started smoking like plastic after few uses, probably because of attachments not being perfectly aligned... it isn't easy to "align" them to prevent that issue. Seems like manufacturor can improve design to prevent this. My other concern was the amount of apple and carrot slices (full slices) that was ending up in the waste bucket.

I am a new user, but this is a very heavy plastic and it makes good seal. I use a VacMaster Pro Vacuum Sealer.

After reading reviews, I chose this Kuvings Juice Extractor and it was a champion. Super cute orange, very powerful - more powerful than the Breville juicer I had bought my boyfriend a few weeks earlier. When you turn it off, it sounds like a jet plane landing - it takes its juicing VERY seriously. Problem, though, is the pastic clamp that holds the top juicer part to the machine is a bit wimpy. While we're very careful to make sure the bowl is in place before locking the clamps down, the clamps themselves can't seem to take the pressure when you're juicing heavier items (even if the items are cut into sections). One clamp simply began to disintegrate after about 3 weeks of use. It didn't break - it just crumbled. Overstock was out of stock when I asked for a possible replacement. They've offered to refund completely or give me a percentage off if I choose to go to Kuvings to see if I can get a replacement clamp. (Overstock rocks in my book.) This is such a great juicer otherwise, I'll try the Kuvings option first. I'll see what happens with Kuvings and will report back.

This machine is well made. It's not cheap or made of plastic but stainless steel. Goes with my other stainless appliances. Makes a great cup of coffee. Nice and hot.

Great product and looks nice. My only disappointment was that I expected it to have the stainless steel metal look to match my other appliances but was more of a silvery gray look and was more of a hard plastic. Other than that, I'm happy with my purchase so far.

I like it. It's what I wanted. It works great. I make lots of pesto in it. I bought it to replace my "Magic Bullet" you know that "as seen on TV mini blender. The only little tiny thing is that I thought I was getting a polished chrome appliance, and what I got was silver colored plastic. But hey, it works fine, and I think it will last longer than my last pesto maker.

I'm writing this review because I saw that some people have written about the cord being too short. We just got it today, and my mom cant wait to use it! when we got it out of the box, and she was beginning to get ready to use it, I pointed out that the cord was very short while examining the base. when I flipped it over I realized that the cord was wrapped around the inside of the base and had a small plastic part that clicked to close and open to hold the cord in place on teh side of the base where the cord comes out. When we got the cord out it was about the length of any other appliances that uses electric power and am sure is the size needed to get it where you want it on your counters. We haven't yet used it YET, but I am sure my mom has it on right now as I'm writing this. From reading the other comments, I am positive that we will get GREAT use out of this product and I think that it is a great appliance!

Keep in mind that a lightweight plastic bowl is easy for an active puppy to tip over, so choosing a heavy, sturdy bowl for young puppies is a good idea.
