My stove top still works but seems to only do barely warm or blazing, nothing in between, regardless of what I set it for. I've neither the money nor inclination to buy a new stove right now, so thought I'd give this double burner a try. It does get the job done, but it's very slow to heat up, takes a good 15-20 minutes on highest setting to come to a boil. I'm still trying to get the hang of how to set the "dial" for med low, medium, medium high, etc. The only actual markings are Min and Max, just got to guess at the in between settings. Also be forewarned that the whole thing gets really hot (once it actually heats up), and the burners themselves stay hot quite a long after it's turned off. Bottom line, while I'm not exactly thrilled with it, I'm just cooking for one, not a big family, so it will do until I figure out how I'll swing the cost of a new stove/cook top.
Both my husband and I want to express how happy we are with our new ice maker! We've only had it for about a month but we wonder why we didn't purchase this item sooner. We live in a tiny city apartment and so the size of the icemaker fits perfectly on our small kitchenette counter. It's sleek and the red compliments our other red appliances. It's simple to use and I love that you can select from small, medium or large sized ice. We turn it on only when we use it and after only 15-20 mins the icemaker generates approx 1.5-2 cups of medium sized ice. This is so much easier and faster than filling up ice trays and waiting for them to freeze. Overall, it's fairly quiet other than when the ice drops into the tray. We can't imagine hot summers without our new icemaker. I would highly recommend this item if you have a small kitchen space.
This slow cooker has been used for just about everything: making apple butter, stews, soups, allowing my tomato sauce to simmer & get richer; pork roasts, pot roasts, it does it all. One more heat setting would be awesome, though, something between medium and high.
