I am extremely pleased with my Kamenstein 20-jar Revolving Spice Rack ! Our family has found they no longer need to dig through cupboards and drawers for tiny tins or cumbersome bottles of spices! Thank you! The price was exellent, the spices themselves are of high quality and the unit is quite attractive.

My husband laughed when I bought this and commented that it will soon go the way of the breadmaker I bought in the 90's. Well, maybe, but for now, I am having fun making perfectly-formed slider patties with built in grill indentations. The uncooked hamburger patty comes out easily of the mold. Gadget is well-made and sure to impress family at our summer barbecues.

I bought these bowls really for putting out chips, etc., for family gatherings. They are nice and sturdy. Shiny, too! Just as nice as ones in stores that cost a lot more.

Months after purchasing this pasta machine, I finally got it out of the box to make some homemade pasta and I am delighted with the result. For the price, the machine is a very pleasant surprise--sturdy, heavy and easy to use. All parts were in working order, but I did have to hold the knob to change that changes the thickness to keep it from slipping back tto the thickest setting. Mind you, it might have been that my dough was not properly kneaded. I made some fine linguine and some thicker fettucine using a hybrid recipe for basic pasta (Mario Batali + Jamie Oliver) and I am very happy with it, especially for a first attempt (both making pasta and using the machine). I've read the other reviews. Since this is written after only one use, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have to revise it, but tonight, my family and I are really pleased. (By the way, my 6-year old had a blast cranking out the linguine with the cutting rollers!) This could turn out to be a real asset on snowy, winter weekend afternoons.

It isn't quite what I expected in quality or size. This ladle is so big that you could almost cook your pot of soup in it. It would work well for a huge event with an even huger pot (like the old wagon trains used). The site shows it as being polished aluminum, but it isn't. It is the "cheap" aluminum type and it also isn't very stiff alumuminum either. But for soup, how strong does it have to be? If you entertain large groups with larger pots of soup/chili, this may be for you; but for the average family, it would be way TOO big for the normal pot.

This bacon tray is much too small, you have to cut the bacon slices in half to get them to fit. They fall off during cooking, It does clean easily, it's just far too small for it's intended purpose. If you cook for a family of more than ONE, forget this product.

I absolutely love this device. It's great to get the entire family involved in cutting potatoes. It is super durable, made of all metal construction. Combine this with a deep fryer and you are making great fry's.

No bells and whistle to drive up price while adding minimal practical utility; just a solid and easy to use machine to make homemade spaghetti and linguine, or pasta sheets to be used for lasagna or ravioli. It is quick and easy to make pasta with this machine, there are numerous recipes on the internet for variations like spinach, sun-dried tomato, and whole wheat, and you will know eactly what is in the product you are feeding your family. This machine is solid and heavy - all metal and no plastic or composite - and must be attached to a strong work surface.

I am getting every family household one of these for Christmas. I eat a lot of bacon and the mess of paper towels and the cleaning of the microwave was awful. Use 2, 1/2 sheets and there is no splatter, greasy leakage, or anything to clean up. Pour the grease out and put it in the dishwasher (no pre -rince necessary). If you are quick in putting the cooked bacon on a plate when it is still hot it will lay flat. Otherwise the shape of a 'U'. Love it

Good size for a couple or single person. Not large enough for a big family serving of pasta. Appears solidly built, should last for years. One of the spot welds on the legs left a dark spot on the interior of the colander, but appears to be a cosmetic discrepancy only. Except for the cosmetic defect, would have given 5 stars.

I enjoy grilling for friends and family and think I have the best burger recipe. The only thing I don't enjoy too much is making the burger patties after all the ingredients have been mixed. I actually came across an advertisemkent for the Weston Burger Maker by accident.......such a fortunate thing for me. The Burger Maker makes perfect patties in less than half the time I used to spend. It can also be adjusted to make the patties thick or thin......I really like this feature. It is also so easy to clean. Perfect patties in no time......Perfect !!!!!! . I highly recommed the Weston Nonstick Burger Express Patty Maker

I use this grinder for making a family Italian soup where dough goes through the large disk. It came out perfect. The base stays in place and the " pusher" was very useful. I'd definitely would recommend this product.

My husband is the cook in our family. He generally uses professional cooking equipment. While he cooks, I search the web for deals on cooking items. He has been talking about replacing his large cutting board. I have to admit I was surprised to see how expensive the large boards are! This is an excellent deal! If you read the description you will find they are offering the large one that is reversible with juice groove on one side. This board is extremely large. You could probably put two cooked turkeys on it. My husband loves it and uses it so often he leaves it next to the stove top, looks like we have a butcher block counter! Also note this board weighs in at 27lbs, it's no light weight! We highly recommend this item.

My entire family loves this product. Pasta night is so much fun. We love it!

I can't say our first few attempts were very successful. The dough has to be covered in flour (not 'dusted' as suggested) before it will roll through without sticking to the metal. We've only been able to run dough through once (as opposed to 'several times' as recommended). The micro settings used for thin pasta didn't cut correctly - but we managed to thin the dough enough to make it work better. All in all, it's a decent pasta maker - and the best we found on the market. We were able to compensate for the brief instruction booklet by modifying our recipes, adding extra flour, etc. The only drawback we've not come up with a workaround for is the cleaning - you can only use a brush to dust out the dough - no water is to be used in the cleaning of the machine (it will remove the light coat of oil in the gears). Aside from all that, we still enjoy making our pasta together as a family, and will continue to use this pasta maker to do so.

I got these as gifts for people in my family - matching the mitts to their kitchen colors. They were a big hit!

I bought this as a gift. Did much looking/reading about pasta makers and was concerned that at this great price it would not work very well. It is a hit. They love the machine - easy to use. Perfect size. The handle does come out but that is not a problem as it needs to. My son's family is making pasta everyweek. They love it.

Im new to canning and preserving. It is one of my methods to stretch my food dollars. The Roma Food Strainer made processing gallons of cinnamon applesauce painless so I had special gifts for my family members. My only criticism of the Roma Strainer is that neither the suction nor the C-clamp base was sufficient to keep the strainer attached to the counter; however, as with most things, duct tape fixed the problem. Im sure there are appliances that process produce faster or easier, but for the price, the Roma cant be beat.

This is an excellent Christmas gift for one of my daughters and her family. She has a son that is 8 years old and LOVES his pasta. This will give him a chance to help his mom make all types of pasta and then enjoy the fruits of his labor. Her husband will really enjoy this gift also and will enjoy learning how to make pasta. This is a great family gift. It would give the family time together and teach everyone patience and a new skill. GREAT gift.
