Blender has a lot of safety features. It is also easy to use, assemble and clean. It does take up some counter space but it is worth every inch.

This is my first purchase of a "wine cooler" and in retrospect, I'm not sure if the concept is sound. Apparently, wine coolers do not chill wines down to a temperature that one would want to serve white wines at. They only cool to 54 degrees F (this is the traditional temperature British ales were served at and described as "warm beer". The only use I can see for these coolers is to maintain the quality of bottled wines for several years' storage. For champagne and white wines, one still has to pop them in the fridge. This particular model is poorly designed in that the racks have insufficient height and house only the narrowest of bottles - - champagne and the slightly broader diameter bottles don't fit without forcing up ;the row above. Just half an inch more height on each row would solve the problem. Go figure!

I've had my kettle for a few weeks now and have really been enjoying it. It's very attractive and has a good solid feel to it. The cordless feature makes filling and pouring easy. It heats quickly. My one concern is the on-off switch: it it made of lightweight plastic and sticks an inch or so from the bottom of the kettle, making it vulnerable to breakage. I hope I'm wrong and the switch holds up, because I really like this kettle!

It's my bad for not measuring, but this was a few inches short of counter height in our kitchen. We had a handyman build a black box for it to sit on and now it looks great. We are using it for soda and beer and it works like a charm. It's in our kitchen, so we haven't really noticed any noise issues from the fan. I was also worried about the microdot on the glass, but you can barely see it - the glass just looks tinted unless you look at it close up. With our 15 percent off coupon (from email) this fridge was a seriously great deal. It looks much more expensive that it was!

We were a little apprehensive about buying this wine cooler mainly because no one had written a review for it yet, but we took the risk and bought it anyway. It's really nice. It looks great and the blue LED lights are an extra modern touch. True to form, it does keep the reds at one temperature and holds the whites at another. My only gripe is that on our unit, the two doors don't match up at the same height - one door is about 1/8th to 1/4th of an inch lower than the other one; however, it is hardly noticable.

I love this oven. I can bake biscuits or breads in half the time of my regular oven because this oven takes little time to heat up and the convection feature reduces time. This oven saves energy for baking such items. The knobs seem cheap or lesser quality than the oven but I have had no functional issues with them. It did take some practice to determine which rack setting is appropriate so not to burn food. It does produce heat several inches away so be sure to not have items which could burn or melt near it. You will need open counter space for this oven.

This dishwasher is great for one person. It cleans as well as full size dishwashers that I have had. It was easy to set up and switch out the faucet attachment. It fits under my cabinets with only about 1/8 inch clearance, so make sure to measure carefully. The filter in the bottom (think sink strainer basket) catches big things and unscrews for cleaning. The only problem so far is that the soap dispenser is right in front of the silverware basket, so I have to make sure all the utensils point in or they hold the door closed and no soap comes out. It's not a huge issue, just something to remember.

My husband wanted a meat slicer for Christmas, and since I had no idea on how to purchase one, I came to Overstock to do my research. I ended up with the Weston Heavy-duty 9-inch CE-approved Food Slicer because it seemed to be of good quality. My husband reports that it works great and is exactly what he was looking for. To me, it looks larger than it needs to be, so if you're looking to save counter space when you use it, you may want to consider a smaller model. In all, though, they seem to all do pretty much the same. It is fun to be able to slice up a whole turkey breast, a ham and a big wedge of cheese into professional deli slices within minutes! The end product is much better than just using a knife and a cutting board.

I'm clumsy and have broken several glass carafes in my life, so I decided to make the switch to thermal carafes which have the added benefit of keeping the coffee warm without additional heating after brewing. My previous thermal coffee maker was a Mr Coffee unit which would only keep coffee hot for an hour and of which the bottom fell off after a year's use. After three weeks of daily use, I'm pleased to report that I am thrilled with my Cuisinart coffee maker. The operation of this coffee maker is very simple and the thermal carafe has kept great tasting coffee hot for 10 hours. I must agree with some reviewers that it is very tall and does take up a lot of space. You will not be able to fill the unit under most cabinets and if you did, there would be only a couple of inches of clearance between the unit and the cabinet which could cause damage to your cabinets. However, I have a lot of counter space and this has not been an issue for me.

This machine slices meat from paper-thin up to a half inch, which is what it is supposed to do. A few notes: --The blade is geared down to a fairly low speed by a gear drive, which is not quiet. I hope this is normal and does not mean the drive is about to tear itself up.-The model advertised is supposed to be a Buffalo Tools brand, but mine says Sportsman -- this, of course, makes no difference as the machine is of Chinese manufacture, probably sold around the world under many different labels. --The manual is totally generic and fairly primitive. --The machine obviously needs to be cleaned after use, including behind the blade. How do you get behind the blade? I quote the manual: REMOVING THE BLADE: Remove the screw clip (right, near the cutting blade) of the blade mount and the blade lock by screwing out the screw clip. Huh? What screw clip? What blade mount? No such thing on mine. Nor does the sketch in the manual, which lists and shows all the parts, mention any screw clip or blade mount. I see no way to remove the blade other than by taking out the three Phillips screws that hold it on. I did this, and its OK, but there is a discrepancy here that bothers me. Bottom line: a decent machine that does a decent job; noisy and not simple to clean. I would recommend it with disclaimers, as noted above.

I spent a long time researching juicers and the Juice Fountain Elite 8000JEXL by Breville is the one that consistently garnered great reviews. I can see why. I'm delighted with this product. It juices fruit and vegetables very efficiently, very quickly, and it's easy to operate and to clean. Most parts are dishwasher safe. A small brush is included for making sure the filter is free of debris when you're cleaning it. Further, by lining the pulp bin with plastic bags either recycled from the grocery store or purchased specifically for the Breville juicer, clean-up is that much easier. The main parts are stainless steel, making the machine not only sturdier but attractive on the counter. It does have rather a large footprint and height (I measure it at 16 3/4 inches tall). It fits under my standard cabinets but I feel it is too big and bulky for me to store in a cabinet and to hoist out daily.) That's not a deal breaker in my book, but it might be an important consideration for someone else. The only negative comment that I have is that it's loud, but it juices so rapidly that the noise is not problematical. If you're serious about juicing, then I would definitely recommend this product.

I wasn't sure of the size when I ordered this, but it ended up being just right. It might hold 5-8 ounce cups if filled to the brim, but 4 and one half cups fills it up to the bottom of the spout (36 ounces, or about 1000 ml) The coffee grinds will absorb some of the water, this fills three 12 oz coffee mugs. Dimensions are about 9 1/2" high (24cm), the glass is about 4" diameter (10cm). the flared base is 5" diameter (12.5cm) and the handle sticks out about an inch beyond the glass. Lightweight, but well made, better than my last one. The glass is a friction fit in the stainless holder, so keep your thumb on the glass to secure it when dumping out the grounds. (that is what happened to my last one, glass breaks when it falls on a rock, careful letting someone else make coffee! Yes, I put the used grinds straight into the garden, roses love them) The screen and spring are lightweight stainless steel. The lid is also stainless, plastic lined on the inside and more sturdy than my old one. Somebody posted a comment that the screen hardware falls apart. Anyone with an ounce of mechanical common sense knows that threads need to be tightened, in fact, the screen needs to be loosened to rinse the coffee grinds out, then tightened back with each use. If you can't deal with a little mechanical maintenance go back to the paper filter drip system and miss out on the full flavor of French press. If you are getting too much sediment, try a coarser grind, and use a "burr" type grinder instead of the fast spinning blade type of grinder, and don't pour that last half ounce. My reason for rating this good instead of excellent is that the edges of the metal on the lid and the screen hardware should have been rounded better, it's a bit sharp and will cut skin if you are not careful.

I bought this kettle for good coffee in a French Press. Water from a drip coffee maker wasn't hot enough; A whistling tea kettle woke roommates at 5 in the morning. An open pan of boiling water would sometimes silently boil dry. I needed something "set it and forget it" style. This Ovente is just the ticket. This kettle was a delight right out of box. The external AND internal box had really taken a beating during shipping, but the kettle and base inside were in perfect condition. I was concerned the surface might scratch off with use. Not so. The red walls appear to be lightly coated with a protective clear coat. The interior is bare stainless steel. Design silhouette is elegant and the handle solid and comfortable, well insulated from hot stainless steel. Features I looked for: an easy to read water level window on the side not in the handle; and base and kettle heating elements thoroughly recessed for cleaning, safety and rust prevention. This kettle has all. The exposed metal heating element is recessed into the kettle itself. The black plastic bottom of the kettle and base both remain 'cool' to touch so the kettle can be moved around the counter without melting anything. At 9x6x9 inches, it takes up little counter space. Since it shuts off just after boil, there's less risk of steam damage on overhangs. Set up is a breeze: clean, fill to line, kettle on base, plug in and trip lever. Done. With 1500 watts it boils in about 5 minutes (in the midwest), red light goes out and the lever pops up just after bubbling. There is no 'warm' function here. It's strictly boil and shut off. For the inattentive, there's a boil-dry safety feature as well. After weeks of steady use, I noticed rust on the interior bottom, but turns out it was from our drinking water, and wiped away easily to the intact stainless bottom. The base has a wrap around "hidden cord" feature for neat-niks but Liter indicators are only embossed numbers on the plastic water level window and will likely come off with compulsive cleaning so caution there. After use, these lines will be little more than aesthetic because full/half-full/minimum will be a no-brainer. Scalding temps work well for reconstituting noodles, lightly cooking thin veggies in soup bowls, tea, instant cocoa, and of course French Press coffee. All in all, we love this kettle; its safety, design beauty, unobtrusive unattended operation and its functionality.

I have used this grill several times now and I love it! Right off the bat, I'll tell you to invest in a meat thermometer, grilling rubs and sauces, and silicones tongs and spatulas to make your experience with this grill the very best! While it is completely different from the fire grilling of a gas or charcoal grill, it makes delicious meals. The benefits of using this type of this grill are many: non-stick, can be used outdoors or moved inside should it start to rain, clean design, super easy to clean and store, no open flame, doesn't take up alot of room on your deck/patio, holds alot of food, heats up quickly, is light and easy to move, so totally easy to assemble. Can also be removed from the stand and placed on a cart or table. The quality is decent and you can order replacement parts. A couple of tips that will improve your overall experience with this grill- I marinate the meat for several hours prior to grilling, using a smokey flavored marinade. When making burgers, I add a bit of dry rub to the beef. I also close the vent on the top of the grill cover to keep the meat moist, opening it at the very end of grilling and splash on a bit of bbq sauce. This allows for a more authentic grilled burger taste. Keeping the vent closed the whole time "poaches" the burgers- this happened the first time I used the grill. Although, I dressed them up a bit and no one even noticed. I've since metered the moisture with the vent and made some awesome burgers! I also made baby beef ribs and pork ribs ( the boneless strips) which I had marinated overnight. I put them on the superhot preheated grill to sear them, then put on the cover, and grilled them on lowest heat for 45 minutes. They were excellent! I also made chickens breast (boneless skinless), marinated with Charlie Biggs' apple bbq sauce. I used a meat thermometer for these, as I always tend to overcook chicken. I cooked to internal temp of 165. They were nice and moist! It takes a little practice to simulate that authentic grilled flavor on this type of grill, but it's totally worth it! if you need a grill that would be good for a single person or small family, an elderly person, a small balcony or deck, a mum with small children, or condo/apt. that prohibits open flame, this grill is great! Lastly, while my grill is very sturdy and stable on the single arm base, I have 2 large dogs that are like bulls in a china shop, so I plan to build a stocky table to use and store my grill. I bought a 12 foot 3 prong heavy-duty extension cord, which I store with the grill plug, coiled in the bottom portion of the grill, under the grilling plate. I have also purchased a round 22 inch smoker cover that fits perfectly. Hope this review is helpful in your decision to buy this grill. Enjoy!!!

I am pleased with the capability, and function including clean up of this unit. I have not used other brands so I can't compare others to this one.

It looks great on the cabinet, but everything takes double to triple the time to cook than it did in my 10 year old Sharp. The door arived with a 2 inch cut on the inside of it, and a 2 inch dent on the inside back of it. I wouldn't buy it again and I can't wait to trash it and buy a new one.

I love it better than the any other I have purchased. The grills do not come out for cleaning, but are easy to clean anyway. So very roomy and grease tray is in the front and not underneath the grill. I love the grease tray in front because it can be emptied into a container and doesn't mess up my granite counter tops.

This grill is great. First I hesitated due that I own one different brand that I leave in Aruba. This grill works just as good for half of the price of other brand. I like to bring it with me when I go on Vacation due that I hate to eat out. A fast way to fix a meal and clean up for 2 or more. Even in the winter when I don't want to go out and light the grill outside, I can put it on my counter and it serves the purpose. I just love it. The first trip this grill will make is to Myrtle Beach S.C. Rae

Microwaves are a kitchen staple. 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.

Luckily, choosing the right size dryer for your home is a fairly simple decision, (especially if you're buying a pre-matched washer and dryer set). There are just a few things you need to know before you make your choice.
Many chefs prefer cooking on a gas range because it offers more precise control of the heat for improved cooking ability. Even if you aren't a chef, you can benefit from the finesse and affordable cost of gas ranges and ovens. When you're shopping for a gas range, you'll need to consider your kitchen's access to a gas line along with how much space you have. Factors like size, display features and range amounts all need to be considered when buying a gas range.
