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 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.

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.

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!

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 is a wonderful over-sized pressure cooker. The programmed automatic settings work like a charm. For example, I often place an entire 5 pound bag of potatoes in the cooker, cover with water, press the Potato and Yams setting and have perfectly cooked whole potatoes suitable for cutting into potato salad in about 35 minutes. The stew and soup setting works beautifully. Just place your ingredients into the pot, press soup/stew and walk away. The automatic meat setting leaves the meat less tender than I like it so I seldom use it. For meat, including roasts and ribs I use the manual program, setting it on high for up to 90 minutes. The rice and grain setting gives you perfect rice every time. This is a great size. Pressure cookers can be filled to no more than 2 inches from the top of the insert. This means that this 8 quart cooker really maxes out at about 6 - 6 1/2 quarts. Filling it more than that provides the risk of food bubbling up into your escape valves, which could possibly cause a failure of one or more of the safety features. This is true of every pressure cooker, not unique to this one. You can actually fit a 4 or 5 pound roast in this pot with room for vegetables and sauces. I cannot do that in my 6 quart cooker which really only cooks about 4 1/2 quarts of food and is much smaller in diameter than the pot on this one. I must comment that this pot can be used with as little as one quart of food in it, it still cooks perfectly, does not need to be crammed full to work. Pros: automatic settings for commonly cooked foods and rice ( I cook as little as 1 cup of raw rice using 1 1/2 cups of water), Can use manual settings if you prefer. Perfect size, (even large enough for canning pint and quart jars.). Switches to keep warm automatically when cycle is complete. Set and walk away for perfect results. Can be used as a steamer with a rack insert. Steams broccoli in 2 minutes. Can be used for single servings or family sized meals. Cons: It has no browner setting. You must sear or brown your roasts, ground meat etc. if you wish before adding to the pot. While the window shows the countdown to the time remaining and indicates that the contents are under pressure by displaying a "P" on the panel when MANUAL settings are used, there is only a "P" displayed once the pot has come up to pressure when using the Auto settings, that is, there is no indication of the cook time remaining. (not a big deal, the pot accurately calculates the remaining time, just does not display it) I found that the keep warm setting works well for foods containing a lot of liquids but thick sauces, cooked dried beans etc. seem to stick to the bottom of the pot if left on "keep warm" too long. This happens with my smaller pot also. ( I just shut the pot off when done and allow it to remain closed. It keeps food hot for hours by itself, if unopened.) I highly recommend this pressure cooker. I bought one for my daughter who loves it also.

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.

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!!!

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.
