This was a gift, but was returned. They reported that the varnish on the wood was so strong that it made them sick

While I would recommend this product it is a bit noisy. It looks great, with nice wooden and metal racks and high quality stainless door. It holds the contents at a steady temperature.

Rice cooker, pressure cooker, and slow cooker all in one! And they all work just as I'd expect. Be very careful releasing the steam valve. I use the end of a wooden spoon that has a hanging loop to hook around the tab and pull from a safe distance. Don't put under a cabinet, there will be a LOT of steam. Cleanup of the non-stick inner bowl is very simple, but take care not to scratch it. Stick to wooden and plastic utensils and never put it in the dishwasher.

The T-Fal Avante toaster makes a uniformly golden toasted slice every time. The bagels came out toasted better than any other toaster I've ever had. The push-up feature is great; I can get rid of my wooden grabber that I used to dig toast out of my old toaster.

I RECEIVED THIS SKILLET 2 YEARS AGO FOR CHRISTMAS. I LOVE TO USE ELECTRIC PANS. BUT------- I HAVE TO PLACE A VERY THICK WOODEN CUTTING BOARD UNDER THE UNIT BECAUSE IT GETS SO HOT AND I AM AFRAID IT WILL DO DAMAGE TO MY COUNTER. I HAVE NEVER PLACED THE WHOLE UNIT IN WATER AND DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THIS HAPPENS.?

the first time i used this i used paper cones that barely fit in the space provided on machine. it kept hitting the spinner in the middle so i decided to try again and use the wooden sticks it came with. not only did it not stick to the stick but it kept jamming up in the spinner because you could not roll the candy to get it out of the machine. i ended up with clumps of hard cotton candy laying in the bowl. then it was a disaster to clean. dont waste your money on this machine.

This ice cream maker is great. It seems quite to me because our last ice cream maker was a really old one that you have the wooden bucket for and had to make it outside (very loud). I docked one start because it was rather expensive and kinda heavy. Other then that, we are very happy with our purchase. It will take a couple years but it will pay for itself with what we'll save making our own ice cream and I think ours is better then anything you can buy in the store..

A great cooler that is very quiet (just a bit of fan noise once in a while). No compressor to worry about so no vibration and no defrost. Just set and forget. Keeps the wine cool and ready to drink. Perfect for the normal 750 ml bottles, the 1.5 liter bottles are a bit harder to fit in and tend to take up both slots. Shelves are removable to allow flexibility for storage. I may get a second one...at this price it is almost as cheap as a nice wooden wine rack .

The food grinder is versatile and easy to use. Our family has used it for fruit and vegetable relishes, as well as to chop cooked meat for sandwich spreads and to puree soups. I found the internal spiral post (which moves food toward the front-mounted blade) to fit much more closely than the older model my mother owns. Time will tell if this is a better feature. The other difference from Mom's model is that the wooden dowel (for pushing food down the top chute) has been replaced with a plastic gadget which can also assist with removal of the front component.

This is my 3rd Panini and by far the best. This one is light weight, easy to store and get out again. Heats fast, actually sears, nice and hot so you can have rare steaks with a nice crisp sear. Leveling for thick steaks or chicken or sandwiches - works well...just lift the back edge to get it started and it will adjust - Use a wooden spoon cause it's hot. I am ordering 2 more for wedding gifts. Oh, I almost forgot - this Panini does not smoke up the house and it cleans up fast by hand or the dishwasher...no need for that scraper.

It's a decent wine cooler. It's quiet and the temperature is consistent. My biggest issue is that the shelving is not a high quality metal or wood. I believe it's some form of hard plastic. It's tough to pull the shelves in and out. The exterior looks wise, looks really nice.

I needed a small fridge to fit in my vintage travel trailer. This came closest to fitting in the space left when I took out the old ice box. I did need to shave the wood in trailer about 1/3 inch on each side, but it installed with no problem.

I received this mixer 4 days ago. However, I have used it a lot already and feel I can give an adequate review. I made two double batches of icing, a pound cake, white homemade dough with the dough hook, ice cream mixture with the whip, and creaming the ice cream mixture with the ice cream maker attachment. When making the icing, I did notice that creaming 2 cups of shortening with a few tablespoons of water in this larger bowl took some trial and error. I found on the second batch that if I stir to get it going and then go to speed 2 and then 4 it worked a lot better for mixing as the motor was moving the beater faster. When making the pound cake, I noticed that my mixture was thicker than when I used two other mixtures by other companies. I've always been able to pour my cake batter into the pan, not scoop it out. I had to shake the pans to level out the mixture as it was that thick. However, the cake tasted the same so I'm okay with the change in appearance. I've always made dough with my hands on a wood surface. However, I wanted to see what this mixture would do. My recipe used 8.5 cups of flour and instructed me to add four cups in the mixer. However, I was able to incorporate 6-7 cups as the hook really mixed the ingredients very well. With the dough hook, the highest speed you will use is 2 and this did the job, to my surprise. When I folded the dough on my work surface, it make my kneading job so much easier and faster. I added the other 2+ cups of flour as needed and the dough was fantastic. Also, I used the pouring shield to add my flour on the stir setting and then increased back up to 2nd speed at intervals. This worked great for me and after all flour was incorporated, I removed the shield. I don't think you are supposed to leave it on unless you are using it as it doesn't snap in place but rather sits on the bowl. The best part was I got to use the mixer to make ice cream using the separately purchased ice cream maker attachment. I used the French vanilla ice cream recipe provided in the supplied owner's manual. This was my first time making ice cream and combining hot mixture with cool/room temperature mixture. The instructions were very good and the ice cream taste great. I ate some freshly made and I have yet to taste it frozen. You do have to prepare the ice cream bowl at least 15 hours in advance and you must refrigerate your mixture before you can cream. I made the mixture and froze the bowl the day before use.My only complaint was that the instructions for attaching to the machine are so simple and the diagrams so simplistic that it went completely over my head. I was looking for the piece to snap to the motor head but you just push up and turn it to the angle and when the spinner is attached the two pieces lock. I was expecting it to need more to stay on the mixture. I kept looking for a center hole to slide the unit up. The unit worked just fine as designed and apparently it was me thinking it should attach differently. My comments about the mixture are that I thought the green would be different from what was shown on the site. I thought it was the ugliest appliance I've ever purchased. However, as it sits on the counter the color is growing on me and my husband. I love that the mixture is very easy to clean, just wipe with a damp towel. The mixture is sturdy and blends foods much faster than any mixer I've owned by other companies (this is my first KitchenAid mixer). I don't like that the instructions are not explicit enough on how to place the bowl on the pegs. I just figured it out today and by the next time I use it, it will be another learning curve. Once I figured it out, it made sense but I'd taken that bowl off many times before it became obvious how to attach it. My only other concern is that when I need to scrape the bowl, I have to drop whatever beater/whip/hook is attached; can be annoying sometimes. even though it's easy and quick to do. I definitely recommend you purchase this mixer as I'm a happy cook and new owner of a KitchenAid product.

This is my second Kitchenaide and mixer in 13 years. My old cobalt blue one works just fine but when we remodeled our kitchen I wanted a new one to match our new choices. This Crystal Blue is a perfect compliment to the paint, wood and stainless in our kitchen. It is on display in our kitchen (as was our old model), because the look truly is a piece of art. More importantly, the mixer is a work horse and will last for a very long time (or until you want a new color!), and makes baking so much easier.

Unlike the kettle we replaced, the spout can be turned in any direction while on the heating element/plate. With that attribute, and with a longer cord, I can easily avoid steaming the wood cabinets above the counter. Another improvement is the on/off switch flips off when the kettle is taken off the heating element. It seats easily when placing back on the heating plate. Plus, it has a temperature gauge if you want to stop it before boiling (for. e.g., tea). It has a long, soft, blue light (although under the handle, it is still visible). The lid has an easy to use release in the middle silver section, a good safety feature if it were to get knocked over. We've used the kettle daily for a month and are thrilled with it. It also looks sleek. I'm tempted to buy another as a back-up.

Love this ice cream maker! Super cute and very quiet compared to others I have owned in the past.

Motor needs more power, but works decent. Has a nice look. Like that the canister is aluminum and not plastic.

I purchased my first Cuisinart DGB-625 grind and brew coffeemaker in or around September/October of 2013. By December of that same year I started having trouble. Every single time we would try to run the coffeemaker (with or without the grinder), the unit would immediately turn off and begin beeping quickly. We could not figure out what was going on, but we definitely couldn’t brew a pot of coffee. I called customer service and they ran me through the obligatory “vinegar cleaning” routine, which I did to no avail. After another week, I called customer service again and let them know that the magical vinegar trick did not work. They were pleasant and said they would send me a replacement unit (for a $10.00 shipping fee). In order to receive the replacement unit, I would also have to ship the defective unit back to them (which ended up costing me $20.00). So, I have now spent $90 on the original coffeemaker and then another $30 to get a replacement. At the time I thought, what the heck. $30 is cheaper than buying a new coffeemaker, so no big deal. Receive the new Cuisinart DGB-625 grind and brew coffeemaker quickly and think, “Yay! Coffee with no beeping!” Lo and behold, within two weeks, the bloody replacement coffeemaker starts doing the Exact. Same. Thing. We try to brew a pot of coffee, it shuts down, and starts beeping. Through some cursing and hitting, we eventually figured out what the problem was. For whatever reason, the coffeemaker thinks that the lid is open when it isn’t. The coffeemaker won’t begin brewing if the top (where you pour the water) is open. The thing is, the top ISN’T open. The coffeemaker is defective and just thinks it is open. So, our choices at that point were to: Stand there and physically hold the lid down until the pot of coffee is done brewing or Put something heavy on top of the coffeemaker so that the coffeemaker thinks everything is ok. We went with Option #2 and ended up putting a candle on top of the coffeemaker. Turned out to be a bad idea because, when we tried to use the grinder and timer, the grinder shook the candle right off the top of the coffeemaker and onto the kitchen floor where it, of course, shattered everywhere. That morning we got to clean up shattered glass off our kitchen floor which is not awesome when you haven’t had any coffee (because, of course, without the candle the coffeemaker thought the “top” was open and shut down and started beeping without actually making any coffee). After the shattered glass incident, we decided to get a hand weight. Now, on our kitchen counter, we have a toaster, iHome speaker, coffeemaker, and hand weight. Every morning (or the night before if we use the timer... we don’t ever use the grinder because the hand weight would probably damage our hard wood floors more than the candle did so we don’t want to risk it shaking off) we set the hand weight on top of our coffeemaker in order to get some coffee. Flash forward to now: April 2014. I’ve had my “replacement” coffeemaker for 4 months now. I bought this coffeemaker so I could have an option for fresh, ground coffee, but I can’t use the grinder. I decide I’m sick and tired of keeping a hand weight on my kitchen counter and it’s time to call customer service again. I call them and they lead me through the same mumbo jumbo about, “Sure, we can send you a replacement. There will be a $10 shipping charge and then you will need to ship the replacement unit back to us at your cost.” Wait, what? So, let me get this straight. I have already spent the $90 for the original unit (which didn’t work) and then $30 for the replacement unit (which didn’t work)... and now you want me to give you more money? And get the EXACT SAME UNIT which, quite clearly, is flawed. If I did that, that would bring my grand total (after all is said and done) to $150 and I would - more likely than not - be stuck with a third coffeemaker that doesn’t work, a hand weight on my kitchen counter, and no fresh, ground coffee. I’m really not interested in getting screwed a third time. My requests for them to cover shipping of the second defective unit back to them? Denied. My requested for a different model (I would be happy to cover the shipping costs, I just have no interest in receiving a third defective DGB-625)? Denied. Now I am still out $120 and have no working coffeemaker. The only plan I have going forward is to never, ever, buy another Cuisinart product again.

Works great. Ice cream done in 30 minutes. Accidently let it go longer and it got hot and shut down. After the motor cooled it worked. I like it.

They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, but in many homes, it's also the biggest source of energy waste. Kitchen lighting, refrigeration and cooking consume about 41.5 percent of the total home energy use; add space heating, cooling, and water heating to that total, and you'll see your kitchen is quite the energy hog. Creating an eco-friendly kitchen includes your choice of appliances, but it also goes beyond that; the floors, paint, pots and pans, and other kitchen items you use can make your kitchen eco-friendly as well.
Let's face it. People spend a good deal of time looking at their plasma TV stands. Considering it is the piece of furniture that displays your most popular home appliance, the TV stand gets a lot of attention, and browsing for new plasma TV stands is an important task.

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.

A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration. For even more anniversary gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to traditional wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
