5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will never be without my Roomba again. Never. I have 5 dogs and 2 cats and assorted children and grandchildren. I need to vacuum more than once a day - three times is good. I run my roomba in the morning while I surf the net and in the evening while I watch TV with my husband. I know I should run it in the afternoon as well, but hey, it's gotta rest sometime.

This little gem is worth every penny and I picked up this model in a local Target since it's not available on the web yet.

I have mostly hardwood and tile floors but do have area rugs in a couple of rooms. This thing just hops onto the rugs and back off again though it sometimes lifts the edges of the rugs and sweeps it's little edge gizmo under the rug before hopping back on it. It gets every nook and cranny and I don't have to do the edges at all - they are perfect. Even my Scrubby Dutch grandmother would approve.

We love the "dirt alert" light. It's a stitch to sit and watch the thing go. My kids even want to run the vacuum - how many 10 year olds do you know who want to vacuum?????

It's entertaining to watch, does the job and keeps my floors very clean indeed. It goes everywhere, picks up so much that the first time I ran it I had to empty the little dust bin once before it was even done. That's not needed anymore though as it just keeps things clean, very clean.

The virtual walls work as they are supposed to, the animals don't bother it and it's quiet. The only thing I'd do is buy another one for the other half of the house. I can do three rooms but even with the rapid charger, it's hard to do the whole house twice a day, every day.

I can't think of a single negative thing. It comes with the rapid charger, two virtual walls and a charging base as well as the wall mount unit.

Now, where do I find those robotic lawnmowers???????

5-0 out of 5 stars Great price, Great features
After our old vaccum bit the dust, it was time to hunt for a new one. I spent 2 or 3 hours searching the web for the best-selling, highest-rated vac (hey, life's too short to make all the mistakes yourself - learn from others). The Eureka 4870DT was consistently ranked in the top 3 on everyone's list. So, I bought one.
Installation took 1-2 minutes and required no tools (I've yet to read the instructions...). Once complete, I plugged it in, turned it on, and grinned, as the sound of the motor was simply ear candy...vvvmmmmm
Now, the true test comes - under the dining room table (those of you with kids can imagine). However, before I get there I should mention 2 obvious cons: weight and the foot release lever.
First, this vacuum weighs 21 lbs, which is ~ 4 - 7 lbs heavier than most vacuums in its class. Second, the foot release lever is a bit stiff at first, I've noticed it loosen up a little bit with more use (or perhaps I've just acclimated).

After my initial mini-inspection, I was off to the grandstand court, under the dining room table. Click--clank--vmmmvmmm-click-click--vmmm-click-vvvvmmm-vvvmmm-vvvmm, all clean. The one obvious pro is that the suction is awesome! It does a great job on carpets, use the hose for corners.

As my old vac didn't have a hepa filter, I wasn't used to the smell (it doesn't stink or anything; kind of reminds me of a hosptial or doctor's office smell)

All-in-all I give it an 'A'.

Oh, one more thing, although the vaccum comes with extra bags, you don't have to immediately use one as 1 bag comes pre-installed (guess I should read the instructions :-)).

Best of luck to those vacuum shoppers!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Value and Bang for your Buck
I researched a lot among upright vacuums. This vacuum is great for the money that you pay, further it does its job very well. It comes with several attachments which are all held on to the main vacuum. Things like foot leaver, carpet/hard wood floor clip is slightly tight when new but it gets ok upon few uses, attachments don't fall off they have to be snapped-in correctly. Some reviews said that belt gives up fast; I have not faced it as yet. The roller moves very fast hence obliviously, one should take care it does not suck up shoe lace or any loose cloth. Also since roller moves so fast that at times if feel like a self propelled vacuum, which means it really brushes the carpet and yet is gentle. The hose could have been a bit longer hence I give a 4*, but then again for the price and its quality work was the best out there. Great I did not buy a Dyson!!!, can get 4 of these.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's sucks, but in a good way!
We've had it for about a month. We were tired of the bagless types you had to empty all the time. This works good, strong suction. Only thing is, it looks like a toy, with a lot of plastic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than expected
I bought this vacuum based largely on the customer reviews. I wanted one rated highly by Consumers (reviews indicated it was) and it needed to be affordable. Because of my pets and alergies creeping up on me, I wanted a Hepa filter as well. I received the vacuum and couldn't wait to try it and I was very happy with the results. The vacuum picked up everything (cat and dog hair too), fluffed the nap on this old carpet and actually made it look as if I had had it cleaned! I was happily surprised to find that some spots I was going to use a rug cleaner on because my old vacuum hadn't gotten them out were gone after using this Eureka Vac. My only negative comment is that it is heavier than I expected it to be; however, as previous reviewers commented, the brush action actually does help pull the vacuum forward as if it were self-propelled so that helps quite a bit. I would recommend this one to someone as a great vacuum at a great price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Vacuum!!!
I bought one of these vacuums for our daughter at the end of last summer when their very old vacuum quit. I did a review of the consumer magazines at the time and this one seemed at the top of the heap.

Meanwhile I've been using our older Eureka vacuum new enough to be the plastic type (6 or 8 years old?) and getting results far from good and needed multiple passes in some areas to get the carpets clean.

Every time I see our daughter she thanks me again for the vacuum and raves about it and how their friends ask if they got new carpets. It is that good!

Amazon had an even better deal than last summer and I finally decided to get one before they are discontinued and the price of the replacement for it goes up. Free shipping was estimated at a week or more but I got it IN 3 DAYS! It's hard to beat that though it's likely a result of being in California only a couple of hundred miles from the area of Nevada from where it was shipped.

I've cleaned a couple of carpets with it and the kitchen vinyl floor.

POSITIVES:
* It seems to really get the carpets clean, both relative plush one and a dense low pile one and the vinyl floor is free of the dirt and kitchen droppings. ISN'T THAT WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT???
* It seems to have as much or better suction using the hose and attachments as most canister vacuums that I've ever used. Far superior to any other upright I've ever used.
* It has a cord that is quite a bit longer than the one in the older Eureka that it is replacing. A great help in the long family room we have.
* The tools are securely held in place, unlike some vacuums that I've used where they keep falling off as you use the vacuum.
* The brush stops rotating when you return the handle to the vertical position. No more areas of the carpet that get a bunch of rubbing on them when you use the suction hose and attachments.
* The HEPA filtering is a real nice feature. I'll investigate getting washable replacement filters (see another review here for info) for this vacuum and our daughter's.

NEGATIVES:
* As I recall was mentioned more than once in these Amazon reviews when I read them last summer, it IS much harder to PULL than any other vacuum I've used. My wife would complain but since I do most of the vacuuming it's not a problem and it's a result of the superior cleaning that it does so you can't have everything.
* The switches are hard to push and latch and the brush roll control in particular had to be pushed much harder than I'd usually push a handle made from plastic. The handle lock foot switch likewise is hard to press and wasn't easy to activate to lower the handle to the floor to clean under low furniture. Now that I know how hard things need to be pressed it'll be easier to work it and maybe things will get looser as they are used but my wife would have problems with this.
* The upholstery brush doesn't easily go into the place for it and the only way I could get it to stay in was to push VERY HARD on one edge of it and only have it held in by that one edge. The manual doesn't give details on exactly how it mounts and again my wife would never get it held in were she to use it.
* The unpacking, even when I was particularly careful spread small pellets of styrofoam everywhere -- a great chance to try out the vacuum -- and the styrofoam BB sized pieces stick to the plastic and hose of the vacuum when you take it out of the box. Don't forget to vacuum off the vacuum itself before you spread them even further. It would have been nice if it had been in a large paper sack so I could have removed it without all the styrofoam stuck to it by the electrostatic charge and I could recycled the sack.

BOTTOM LINE:
It's not perfect but in the real world few things are when cost and features have to be traded off.

*** I don't think you can go wrong with this vacuum.***

I'm hoping that after a few weeks of use I'll still be as enthusiastic about it as my daughter is. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Legendary Weber quality, tons of thoughtful features, and built-to-last construction make this propane-fueled gas grill a solid choice for years of pure grilling pleasure. Three high-grade stainless steel burners run the length of the durable, thick-walled cast aluminum cookbox, inputting a powerful 36,000 BTU per hour and producing exceptionally even heat without hot or cold spots. Each burner is individually controlled to enable either direct or indirect cooking, while the infinite control valves allow exceptionally precise temperature control. The Genesis Gold C also adds a heavy-duty side burner that lets you prepare your entire meal in one spot, heating side dishes and sauces while your meat grills. 611 inches of total cooking area provide enough room to cook for even large parties and include a convenient warming rack, to keep already-cooked foods warm or toast hamburger buns, and a warm-up basket, to cook easily burned foods like fish or vegetables and to provide more warming space. Weber's Crossover ignition system makes starting the grill easier than ever, lighting all three burners in succession with just the push of a button.
Like all Weber gas grills, the Genesis Gold C features heavy-duty stainless steel Flavorizer bars to eliminate the flare-ups caused by lava rocks and ceramic briquettes; fats and juices hit the angled bars and sizzle away, adding delicious, smoky barbecue flavor instead of flames. A slide-out bottom tray funnels grease away from the burners and into a removable catch pan for quick and painless clean-up. The grill includes a roomy storage area with solid steel bottom shelf, while a swing-up work surface offers plenty of space to spread out sauces, marinades, utensils and other prep essentials. The work surface is made from granite-look Thermoset for maximum durability, heat resistance, and ease of cleaning, and features four sturdy hooks to keep favorite barbecue tools close to hand. The double-walled stainless steel hood adds a layer of insulation to trap heat and protect from discoloring.
Thoughtful add-ons and extra features elevate this grill above similarly priced models. A built-in thermometer monitors the temperature inside the grill for precise cooking. Rugged, weather-resistant wheels are crack-proof in the most extreme temperatures and allow easy transport, while locking casters prevent the grill from rolling during cooking. The porcelain-on-steel control panel includes a meat temperature chart on the enameled surface for easy reference, and all three burners have screens to keep spiders from spinning combustible webs inside. Best of all, ten fasteners are all that's needed to put this grill together, meaning you'll go from box to barbecue in less than 40 minutes. Included are a 20-pound tank to hold liquid propane and an easy-to-read fuel gauge, so you'll never run out of gas mid-meal. The Genesis Gold C measures 63 inches high by 64-1/2 inches wide by 30 inches deep. Made in the USA, it's backed by a limited lifetime warranty. --Mary Park

With a diameter of 11-1/2 inches, a depth of 5-1/4 inches, and a high domed lid, this 7-quart pan is sized for a family's braising, baking, and stewing tasks. Chili for a soccer team, cassoulet for a family reunion, curried chicken for a block party--all these are well within the pan's capacity. Though it's not nonstick, like some Calphalon cookware, the matte-finish pan is anodized for stick-resistance as well as hardness. Metal utensils won't harm the surface. Textured cast-stainless-steel handles resist heating on the stovetop and go safely into the oven. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan heats evenly and quickly with no hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful pot
To brew up a large pot of home made soup, chili, a pot roast with brown potatoes (Dan Quale where are you?)and carrots - you just won't find a better large pot. Brown your meat and onions on the stove top add some water, and pop into the oven until the meat is tender, add veggies and continue to cook at 300~325, covered, for the best roast you'll find anywhere. The down side is the price, here.You can find this pot at less than half the price as listed here if you do a bit of searching. As great as they usually are here, they do get a bit pricy from time to time so it is worth shopping around to find the best deal. But you will not go wrong with this pot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great pan
I recently purchased this pan and have used it on several occasions, and each time the casserole has proven an invaluable buy. It's great for stews, braised dishes (like lamb shanks or osso bucco) and even plain ol' pasta. Cleaning up hasn't been much of a hassle, either, despite what some folks say about the difficulty of keeping Calphalon Hard Anodized stuff clean.

It's a great multi-purpose pan...a bit on the expensive side, but a tremendous investment for the home cook.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Size for Soups and Stews
Calphalon's new Commercial Hard-Anodized line of cookware is great! I love the stainless steel handles which, unlike the cast aluminum handles of their regular hard-anodized line, stay much cooler to the touch. Also the lids on this line of cookware are domed, which create a tighter seal that reduces evaporation, so you don't have to add liquid during cooking. The handle on the lid is also stainless steel, and the shape has been redesigned to allow for easier lifting. These pans can also be used in the oven.

The Commercial Hard-Anodized 7-Quart Chef's Casserole with Lid is perfect for making a large batch of split pea, lentil, or chicken soup; Irish stew; and Coq au Vin. It's easy to braise your meat first at a medium-high heat, and then add broth or stock when you turn the heat down to a simmer.

For a tomato-based pasta sauce or anything acidic, I still like to use my Le Creuset pots and pans. Also, I don't put any of the Calphalon pots or pans in the dishwasher. ... Read more

Weber's Q hybrid gas grill has a uniquely funky design that allows it to serve equally well as a compact portable grill or as a full featured backyard grill at home. Its generous 280 square-inch porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate offers plenty of grilling acreage for a pile of burgers, strip steaks, hot-dogs or a fish nearly as big as the one that got away. The lid offers a 7-inch tall capacity and can cover foods as big around as a whole chicken. At the same time, the Q folds up to only 31-1/2 inches for easy carrying, and the Q's glass reinforced nylon frame helps keep it lightweight without sacrificing strength or durability. It has two durable fold out side wings with built in tool holders to serve as work tables, and the lid on the handle is heat resistant, and large enough to offer an easy grip even when you're wearing a grilling mitt. There's an infinitely adjustable burner valve with a high quality regulator to allow for complete control of cooking temperatures, a push-button ignition for easy reliable lighting, and the Q is fueled by a standard 14.1 ounce propane cylinder (not included). The lid and body are made of durable cast aluminum, and have built in drip ducts to channel away juices and drippings, which then collect on an easy to reach and easy to clean lower tray. --Brian Trinen ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Love the Q!
Husband & I recently bought a Q, after many years of happy grilling on a Weber charcoal grill. We'd been shopping for a gas grill for quite some time, but could not find a quality small grill. Most of the gas grills are just TOO BIG!

We're usually grilling just for the two of us and we wanted a gas grill for the convenience. The Q certainly fits the bill. It's great! I've cooked steaks, burgers, chicken, fish, pork chops, zucchini, onion slices -- well, you get the picture -- and they've all turned out perfectly. It gets plenty hot and heats very evenly. The side tables are a marvelous addition. I was concerned that they might get "icky" when you fold them into the Q, but they're designed so that only the tiny little points on the corners touch the grate.

The cart is a worthwhile addition. It could be a bit sturdier, but it works well enough and the Q fits snugly on top of it and sort of "locks down" under some plastic tabs. I bought a 5' LP adapter hose for $10 at the local sporting goods store (look in the camp stove aisle) so I can hook it up to a 20# tank. My only complaint is that the cart instructions say DO NOT store a tank on the cart, so the tank has to sit beside the Q. I'd rather be able to store the tank on the bottom rack of the cart, but I guess Weber has its reasons for instructing you not to do so.

All in all, a great purchase!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Weber Grill
This is my third Weber grill and first ever gas grill. I've been considering a gas grill for more convenience during the week, but didn't want one that took up much room. The Thermos and Coleman portable models that have come out in the last year interested me at first, but really just seemed to be outdoor grillpans/griddles. Then I saw the Q...

The Q is a good looking, stylish grill. Added to that are clever design features (folding trays, ultra-light composite shell), a high quality regulator, and a cast iron cooking grate that weighs more than the rest of the grill. Weber has also designed accessories that add to the functionality of the Q. Out of the box, assembly is a breeze. A useful Owner's Guide and a nice recipe card booklet are provided.

I've cooked one meal so far. The food cooked evenly across the whole surface. Once it was preheated, the medium gas setting was plenty to keep the heat up. I was very impressed with how well it cooked. Also, don't be fooled by the thought of a portable grill being small -- the Q can handle a lot of food. I had 4 sausages and 12 large shrimp on it and there was plenty of room for more.

As a longtime dedicated charcoal guy, I find that gas grilling just doesn't provide the same flavor. But the Q has won me over for quick, clean, and convenient weeknight cooking. The idea of being able to take it on the road adds to the value. It may even prove to be a handy double-burner for weekend barbecues. Thanks, Weber, for another great grill.

(Update: I've now grilled potato planks, chicken breast, pork chops, pizza, polenta, pinwheel skirt steaks, garlic bread, eggplant, mushrooms, and beef skewers. All have turned out pefectly. Can't say enough about the cooking grate and evenness of cooking across the entire surface.)

5-0 out of 5 stars The best BBQ grill ever
If it's possible for a grill to revolutionize BBQ'ing as mankind knows it, then this is the grill. Seriously! I was always a diehard charcoal BBQ guy, and I've had weber grills in the past and have been very happy with them. But I recently moved to an apartment complex where I could not have a charcoal grill. When I saw the Weber Q grill, it was love at first sight. The design is both attractive yet practical. The purchase was a no brainer as I new I had to have a gas grill, eve though I still would have rather had a charcoal one for the sheer flavor. Well after getting this home and cooking a dozen burgers and dogs for myself and some friends I was completely overwhelmed. I had never tasted gas-grilled burgers which tasted so good. Furthermore, this thing heats up so fast, it's just amazing. In 3 minutes the grill is hot and ready to go, and that grill, solid cast iron, holds the heat and cooks beautifully. I've never been able to cook those cool grill marks on burgers and steaks before. Believe me, you will cook perfect burgers and steaks, with those grill marks, while retaining all the flavor and juiciness. This grill is awesome. Unfortunately I paid $30 more than what Amazon is charging because I bought it from a specialty BBQ store and I needed it that day, but trust me, this is the best grill you will ever buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little grill!
I echo the positive sentiments of all reviewers past. Goes together quickly. I also have the stand & the cover. Just used the grill for a 4th of July mini-cookout. Perfect for the 2 of us. I can easily see this grill handling enough food for many more people without a problem. Came up to cooking-temperature very fast and cooked our steak tips and burgers nice and evenly. It was a very windy day here as well and I had no problem at all with the grill staying lit. Never once did I lose the flame.
Very durable - I tipped it over while it was resting on the Weber Q cart. It rolled a few times on the lawn but was unscathed in the end. Not even a scratch. Needless to say I am very impressed with the quality of this product!
Like some others mentioned, I am using the 16oz propane cylinders after a minor tweak to the holder. No problems there either.
Even though we have more than enough room for a full-size grill, I like being able to store the grill in a small space. After using this one, I can see no reason to get a full-size grill.
I would strongly recommend this grill. It truly lives up to all the hype.

4-0 out of 5 stars No space? No problem!
Living in a small top floor condo, I needed a grill that was small, yet worked well enough to cook a good family-sized meal. So after doing a little research on the internet, and by reading magazines; I settled on the Weber Q Portable Gas Grill.

This grill is very nice for a portable grill. It's got an attractive functional design which allows it to fold up when transporting it, or when its not in use. Although it doesn't generate as much heat as bigger grills, it does have enough power to cook about 5-7 large hamgburgers at once easily. The burner is basically a rectangular metal tube with tiny holes from which the flames emerge from. The burner itself rests below the grill about 7-8inches. This makes a hotspot that is about center, but slightly towards the cover's hinges. Around the center of the grill, there is ample space for indirect cooking, but if you plan on cooking a large pork roast, this still maybe a bit small. Still, for most other things like hamburgers, chicken legs, ribs, and hot dogs; the Weber Q works very well.

As far as taste goes, charcoal is still the best, but I would rather use a good gas grill like this one in favor of its easy clean up. The Weber Q's porcelain/cast iron grill can be easily removed and cleaned with soapy water and some good scrubbing. The drip pan is easily accessible as well as the bottom of the grill itself - where all the ash and drippings collect. This can be easily cleaned with some 409 cleaner and a scrubber. Typically it takes me about 15-20 minutes to clean my Weber Q after I finish using it. And best of all, I can do it all in my small kitchen, without having to go downstairs to the shared water hose.

The Weber Q uses 14.1 ounce Propane gas canisters. These last about 1.5 hours, so I would recommend at least 3 for a weekend bar-b-que. These cansisters can be easily screwed into place, and held by a fitted metal ring. I should point out that the Weber Q is made to work with the 14.1 ounce canisters because this metal ring is sized for them specifically. You could also buy an attachment that allows for the larger, more common propane tank to connect to it, but I think that would cut down on its portability. Also note that these canisters should not be disposed of like other trash. Typically, hardware stores like Orchard Supply are willing to dispose of them for you. In my case, I usually give them my used canisters when I go there to buy more.

Perhaps the only real downside to this grill is that it does not come with a stand. You would be forced to kneel, or sqaut to get to your grill as a result. Weber does make a stand, but it costs another $25-30. So if you want to save yourself from some back pain, definitely get the stand. Of course, this brings the price of the grill to almost $200. And that's somewhat expensive for a portable grill. Still, I do like the ease with which the Weber Q folds up and how portable it is (the stand folds up as well). So if you have little space and want to grill decent amounts of food, I suggest checking this grill out. It's expensive, but it's a very good portable grill. ... Read more

A perfect gift for new homemakers, the food processor has become an integral part of modern cooking, speeding up a multitude of processes, including kneading dough, slicing, chopping, shredding cheese, vegetables and meat, mincing garlic and parsley, mixing batters, and emulsifying mayonnaise. Cuisinart's Pro Classic comes with a 7-cup work bowl, four basic attachments for slicing, shredding, chopping, mixing, and kneading, and also features two feed tube options, one big enough to handle a whole potato.

Remove the detachable stem for compact storage of discs. All the parts are dishwasher-safe and the motor base wipes clean. In addition, a custom-contoured spatula, a 50-page recipe booklet, and a 30-minute video designed to familiarize the new owner with the care and use of the food processor are included. --Victoria Jenkins ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best buy for the money!
It was really lucky that our old processor went on the fritz at the same time Amazon was offering this as a special for $99! From doing some other shopping around, we expected to spend around $200. From the time it arrived, the processor has been used at least once daily. The use and care booklet provided more than enough info to get great results from the get go. The video got tossed, so cannot comment on its value. We highly recommend this, especially at the $99 price.

This is my first procesor,Which I bought after much thought. I have had it a week and am very pleased with the machine. I bought this one because it came with a video,its a good video, and reduced my learning curve. For under $100 I have all the blades I need too. I have ways to go before I use this machine instinctively, but i have been practicing on dog bisquits,and have a lot of happy dogs. This was a good buy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful for a number of chores in the kitchen
While I usually chop on a plastic cutting board with a big chef's knife, the Cuisinart makes several tasks a lot easier. Chopping cooked or raw meat is one. If you are making hash from leftover corned beef, a short burst in this food processor is the easiest way to go. For mixing certain pastry doughs (pie or pate brisee) this is also a very good item to have, although you have to be careful to go slowly and not overprocess. The one thing the Cuisinart does is heat up the dough if you whirl it around too much, so you have to be careful. And if you put too heavy a bread dough in, using the plastic bread blade, you can heat the shaft up enough to jam the blade onto the central post and that's a big nuisance. However, with these cautions, the Cuisinart is hands-down my favorite food processor and for shredding, slicing thinly or chopping, pretty much the best kitchen appliance for the job.

I got a similar model, (must have been prior to this one)...It doesn't have a couple of the attachments and it has a smaller feed tube, but I can't imagine these things being worth the extra ... I really like how it works though, it is plenty powerful and can be controlled so that you can actually roughly chop things for salsa.

5-0 out of 5 stars A "gadget" that really works
I bought the Cuisinart food processor last Christmas...as a gift to myself. My husband rolled his eyes when I told him I had bought this..he thought this was another gadget that would get used once and then disappear forever in a kitchen cabinet. I absolutely love this machine...I use it almost everyday from chopping vegetables to making cookie/cake dough. It is easy to use...easy to put together and best off all..easy to clean. I would highly recommend this for anybody who wants something that really works. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best smoker.....at any price!!
I've used several cheaper water smokers, offset units, gas grills, you name it. I've used them all to make bar-b-que, however, non of them has produced a better product then the Weber Smokey Mountain. This is the best smoker you can buy at any price. It's perfect for small families and large ones. You can easily prepare 6 to 10 racks of ribs at once. I've done 3 - 7lbs pork butts and a 12 lbs brisket at the same time.

This unit is made to Weber standard, so you know it's well built. Heavy enamel coating that will last a life-time. The effeciency of the cooker is unbelievable. I've done 15 hour cooks without adding any extra fuel.

This is the first smoker (of any type) that I've used that I didn't have to baby sit. Most smokers need almost constant attention in order to maintain proper temp. Not the Weber. It needs virtually no adjustments to keep a steady smoking temperature for hours and hours. You can easily do overnight cooks and sleep easy as the Weber does it's magic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Weber Smoker
I purchased my Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker in August 2003 after talking about doing so for years and after looking at many competing models. I am not disappointed. From an engineering prespective it's design is simple and straightforward and it is extremely well built (just compare it to competing models and you will quickly see the difference). By reviewing the Thermometer installation procedures available at "virtualweberbullet" web site, adding an industrial grade thermometer by drilling a small hole in the cover was completed easily.

The results have been fantastic!! I have used the noted web site to learn about techniques to extend the cooking period without having to add charcoal and the rib recipe (The Best Ribs in the Universe) is out of this world! Smoked Turkey, smoked chicken, smoked salmon and smoked almonds have all been easy to prepare and the results outstanding.

I easily designed and constructed a side simple shelf (from two shelf brackets, a 10"x12" piece of oak, and a 1/8"x1" by 30" piece of steel straping available at Home Depot) that can be temporarily attached to the cooking section for use during any smoking session and easily removed so that you can then place the cover on the smoker for storage.

You will not be disappointed with the results of you efforts with this smoker!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Results
The WSM (aka bullet) cooker is an excellent product for BBQ novice and master. Consistent temperature make this a great 1st smoker for anyone who wants to make their own real barbeque. Easy to clean, a joy to use.

"Toolbits" hedgehog warmer is a comforting additon to anyone living out in the wilds where small, furry rodents come in from the cold, its easy to use, just a few flips of the switch and you will have a warm habitat for the furry creatures.

5-0 out of 5 stars An awesome cooker!
Got this as a present to replace my worn-out cheap-o Brinkman. I wouldn't have spent so much on myself, but am glad someone did! Fire stays lit, heat is slow and steady, with no intervention. The old one used to go out on me, heat up, down & all over. Not this puppy. The construction is heavy all the way. It really helps to be able to lift off that middle ring section when setting up the fire. There are web sites dedicated to this cooker, and for good reason. Some advice - buy the Weber chimney starter and rib rack along with this item. Also, the grill gloves are a nicety, but not a must-have. In the beginning, you can get your recipes off the internet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Cookware Set at a Terrific Price
After comparing major cookware lines, All Clad, Emeril, Wolfgang Puck, Jamie Oliver online, as well as in major stores, Williams Sonoma, Macy's, Linen n Things, etc., I purchased Cuisinart's Chefs Classic set. Quality, features, and value could not be matched! The price (with free shipping), also included a kitchen tools set, a nice bonus.

Thanksgiving was my big "road test". The quality is outstanding! The mirror finish stainless kettles have a nice weight, well-fitting lids, classy sturdy riveted handles, flat bottoms that fit nicely on the burners, and stay-cool handles. They heat evenly. I do not like nonstick cookware, and by adding a little water to the pan after cooking, cleanup was a breeze. I put them all in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling.

I bought a chrome potrack and display them proudly. They indeed look and perform like very high-priced cookware. This was indeed a great purchase!

Any minor spotting or discloration from use, disappears like magic with the use of a small amount of Barkeeper's Friend powder.

I am so pleased with my set that I have already added to it; I purchased a 2qt. and 3qt. saucepan, and the 5 1/2 qt. saute pan. The saute pan is a work of art; especially good for those big pieces of meat on Holidays, and at $39.99, an unbelievable value. I plan on purchasing several as gifts.

It is also ovenproof to 550 degrees; something not found in the plastic-lid products.

You will not be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best cookware ever!
My husband and I purchased this cookwear after our wedding with some of our gift money. We considered Calphalon, Anolon, AllClad and Circulon as options, but we saw this one at a local kitchen supply store and bought it there. They were offering it for a good deal but we came home and found this even lower price at Amazon so we returned the set at the store and bought it online. We're glad we did! The value is outstanding. This cookwear cooks quickly and evenly, the handles stay nice and cool and it is a breeze to clean up. Just put the pan in the sink with some water, let it soak for a few minutes and it wipes clean right away. It's even easier to clean than my old nonstick! We also bought the 5 1/2 quart saute pan, a two-piece nonstick skillet set (still comes in handy for scrambling eggs and cooking ultra low-fat meals) and the four-piece utensil set came free with the 10-piece set...Cuisinart makes excellent products...you'd be silly not to treat yourself to quality cookwear.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love my new cookware!
I have been in need of new cookware for a long time and through some research, including reviews here on Amazon, I decided this Cuisinart Chef's Classic Stainless 10-Piece set was the perfect choice. When this beautiful set of cookware arrived at my house, I was almost afraid to use it. The mirror finish was so gorgeous and I didn't want to get it dirty and risk it never looking good again! Of course, I got over it and used it right away.

Not only is this set beautiful, but also incredibly functional. The heat was dispersed evenly, making cooking so much nicer. The lids on this set are fantastic as well. As for clean up, they clean so easily and yes, still look gorgeous.

If you are looking for a great cookware set that holds up well on the stove, in the broiler and even in the freezer, this is the set for you. And the price is right!

Grilling really can't get much easier than this. After assembling the grill (which takes only a few minutes), simply plug it in and allow about 10 minutes to fully preheat the surface while you gather your steaks, kebabs, or whatever's to be grilled. The electric heat has an adjustable range from low (for keeping food warm) to high (for searing steaks). The nonstick grill surface not only means you can use a minimum of added fat, but it also makes cleanup a cinch. The surface has a subtle slope, with channels that draw accumulated fat or other liquids into a tray just below the surface. The high domed and vented lid helps create a circular flow of hot air to ensure even cooking--particularly important for a large roast or whole chicken.

The grill can be placed either directly on a tabletop or atop its pedestal. On its own, the grill surface stands about 6 inches high; with the pedestal, it stands about 2-1/2 feet high, not counting the domed lid. The pedestal is plenty sturdy for cooking, but the grill still seems a bit top-heavy, so pay special attention if grilling in a high-traffic area or near kids. Because of the easy electric heat, this grill can be used outdoors or indoors--when using it indoors, though, be prepared for potential spattering, steam, or other side effects of cooking. --Cynthia Nims ...

5-0 out of 5 stars backup grill
Originally I saw my mother's George Forman grill (smaller indoor one with lid). Then I saw my brother's Party Size grill. Both of them love their grill. I was able to taste the food from both and found it very tasty and easy to use. I decided to do some investigating on my own intending to purchase the party size grill, when I saw the indoor/outdoor grill. I was impressed with the fact that it appeared to be a bigger cooking surface and the price I found was within reason. I purchased it for the purpose of using it as an extra grill for a cookout I was having. No one used the gas grill at all. I have since used it indoors without the stand, making it convient on rainy days. It is the easiest grill to use and clean that we have ever owned. You can cook everything evenly, because there are no coals to level out. It can easily hold 4 to 5 steaks, 10 big hamburgers, and the list goes one. I am sure there are some drawbacks to those that swear by gas/charcoal grills, but my gas grill has found a permanent residence in our shed, while George sits ready to use at any time indoors or out on our back porch. I am so impressed, that I am purchasing one for my parents for Christmas, to replace the charcoal grill that takes for ever to heat up and messy to clean. I'm sure they'll love it too!

5-0 out of 5 stars No-fuss barbecuing!
Until last weekend, I was barbecue-challenged. I had a Weber charcoal grill that was almost never used, because I could never figure out how to grill a steak (or anything else) to perfection. I never knew how much charcoal to use, or when it was hot enough, and hated the messy cleanup afterwards. Then one Sunday I saw a flyer in the newspaper from a department store that was advertising the George Foreman indoor/outdoor electric grill for sale at only [money amount], plus there was a 20% off coupon. I read reviews of it at Amazon.com, and decided that there wasn't too much risk in buying it. The instruction booklet includes general guidelines on how long to cook different types of food, and what heat setting. My first evening, I grilled some swordfish, and it was absolutely delicious. The next evening, I grilled lamb chops, and these too were superb. Clean up was so easy since the grill is non-stick -- no spent charcoals to throw away! No need to buy propane gas! Just unplug! I think that even my husband, who has never cooked anything in his life, can learn to use it. The surface is large enough that you can cook for friends. I'm looking forward to barbecuing every weekend, even in winter! The only very minor negative: unlike a charcoal or gas grill, it can't be used in case of power failure (as we had in the Washington DC area recently after a storm).

5-0 out of 5 stars George is right. It actually does what he claims it will do!
I bought this grill 4 months ago and have used it several times per week ever since. I am a very lazy cook with 3 hungry teens and a hubby who eats like he's a heavyweight boxer. So, I needed something that would cook and clean-up as easily as possible. I can turn on the grill (it has an adjustable thermostat), take out a package of frozen chicken, hamburger patties, whatever, prepare it as usual, and the grill is ready to go to work. Dinner is on the table in no time. Its non-stick surface is just that, making clean-up simple and quick.
I am quite happy with the surface area, as I can easily fit 8 large burgers on at once. I live in the frozen north, so the fact that this grill will also work indoors is plus.
It's portable, reliable, easy to use and clean, and a bargain compared to other outdoor grills.
George put his name on a very good product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Someone please explain...
...who designed this grill and the packaging. I haven't seen anything better. Ever. My only complaint about this item is that the temp. control knob gets pretty warm when the unit is used for extended periods (but that doesn't happen too often - if it did I'd have gotten a bigger BBQ). That's it. Everything else about this unit is excellent. Cooks great, cleans great, stores great.

5-0 out of 5 stars fast food
We just got this indoor/outdoor grill and couldn't wait to try it. We just tossed on whatever was around -- leftover fried chicken, vidalia onions, cauliflour, and a zucchini. In as long as it took to pull out some dishes and set the table, a hot, fat-free (well maybe not the chicken) dinner was ready. If this is what we can expect from this grill, we're completely happy with it. Cleanup was a breeze. Tomorrow we'll try raw fish or chicken for fast food the way we like it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Weber's One-Touch Gold kettle grill is a great buy for anyone looking for a classic model with a few convenient extras. The design is sleek. The results are delicious.

As with all Weber grills, this kettle's lid and bowl are constructed of premium porcelain-enameled steel--which means not only does heat radiate evenly, but the grill will survive if it's left out in the rain. The cooking surface (22-1/2 inches in diameter) is big enough to accommodate six large steaks, twice as many burgers, or up to a dozen kebabs, and the grill's classic kettle shape keeps flare-ups to a minimum.

When designing this grill, Weber clearly kept convenience in mind. The grill's nickel-plated grate has two built-in hinged side openings that make adding more charcoal briquettes easy and safe, and, when the lid's not in use, it can hang from the bowl by a handy hook. The grill is durable, too. The porcelain-coated steel bowl and lid are exceptionally strong and designed never to rust, fade, or peel. The grill's aluminum vents and ash catcher won't rust either, and its tripod base, nylon handles, and all-weather wheels--besides being exceptionally sturdy--make the grill remarkably easy to maneuver. Weber's patented One-Touch cleaning system--a clever setup of lever-activated blades--sifts ash out of the kettle and into a cooking-pot-shaped ash catcher. You never have to get your hands dirty--and emptying the kettle takes only a few seconds.

To top it all off, Weber throws in a 31-page owner's guide filled with cooking tips and time-tested recipes for grilling everything from pork chops to bratwurst to Cornish hens.

Editor's Choice: We recommend Weber's One Touch Gold kettle grill to beginner grillers or to experienced grillers who swear by charcoal. While this grill includes the basics, such as the kettle shape for even heat, nylon handles, and all-weather wheels, it also offers upgrades such as the stainless steel One-Touch cleaning system with a removable ash catcher for added convenience. The triple nickel-plated hinged cooking grates and two charcoal fuel holders make adding briquettes for direct or indirect cooking quick and hassle-free. ... Read more

You're probalby thinking that there's no reason to update the 10-year-old Weber you've got in your back yard. Well, turns out Weber has made some smart improvements over the years-- the new "gold" model is worth the upgrade.

The ash-catcher is super, the one-touch vent system is a big improvement (no more knocking each vent with a trowel), the plastic handles stay cooler... you get the idea. Nothing dramatic, but good progress.

But here's the clincher: setting one of these up (takes about 20 minutes, even if you make a mistake or two) just makes you feel like you're in heaven. It's summer embodied. People rhapsodize about the new car small... well, fughettaboutit. The look of a shiny new grill that you've assembled yourself is about as good as it gets.

Highly recommended accessory: the charcoal companion. Put your lighter fluid (or your MatchLight) away and use this instead-- it works flawlessly, and it's better for the environment.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great charcoal grill
I'm a big Weber fan-- I've used a Genesis gas grill for six years and a Smoky Mountain Cooker for two. Recently purchased the Kettle Gold. Great charcoal grill! The enclosed ash catcher is particularily useful if you grill with lump charcoal versus briquettes, like I do. It catches any sparks and small pieces of lump that drop through the charcoal grate. Hinged grate is also a big plus. I like to use the Weber charcoal holders to hold my lump when grilling steaks-- push them together in the center to sear (brings charcoal about 2 inches from meat) then push them to the outer edge for indirect cooking. I also added a thermometer to the lid to check and adjust cooking temps.

This baby would get five stars if Weber was still offering the cast iron grate upgrade for the kettles. It's been discontinued this year, but I hear some are still out there to be found. Even without cast iron, you can't go wrong with this as a charcoal grill, and being a Weber, it will last for years and you'll get great customer support if it is ever needed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply put, this is the best grill I have ever had...
Before purchasing this grill, I was a die-hard gas guy. I figured that the convenience factor of quick starts, easy clean ups and not having to constantly buy charcoal would be a fair trade for the taste of good charcoal cooking. What this Weber grill provides though is super even heat, few flare-ups, awesome taste and super easy clean ups via the ash pan and a few kicks to the side to drop the ash through the vent holes...the best of both worlds! I still have my gas grill though (which will be used for the occasional hot dog), but for real cooking, nothing will replace my charcoal grill, except perhaps another charcoal grill. All I need now is the chimney starter to complete my set!

4-0 out of 5 stars Wow Great Grill
I just got the Weber grill for my husband for Father's day and this grill is great. The food taste so good and he loves it. It's so easy to clean with the ash keeper on the bottom that I can actually get out of the kitchen and leave the cooking to him.(what a great bonus) I just ordered another one for my dad and I know he's gonna love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars When you have the time and crave that charcoal taste.
I've got a great Weber gas grill, but occassionally missed the taste of a charcoal grilled burger. I got one of these classics, and the taste of the meat grilled when I've got more time to mess with the charcoal made this a great complement to the gas grill. ... Read more

Early Adopters Pick: October 2002. The world’s only true cyclonic vacuum, generating 100,000 g of centrifugal force and pulling dirt into an indestructible canister made from the same material used for crash helmets.

Named for both its power and its ruthless approach to pet hair problems, the Dyson DC07 Animal upright is a piece of engineering wizardry designed by James Dyson, the inventor of cyclonic vacuums. A hit in Europe for years, Dyson vacuums are new to the American market. At the center of the machine's innovation is the Cyclone air path design, an eight-section chamber that creates powerful, consistent suction. The conical chambers generate 100,000 g of centrifugal force, pushing dust and dirt out of the airflow into the vacuum's 1-gallon collection cup. With no bag to clog, the vacuum's 270 air watts of suction remain steady. The large, transparent collection cup is easy to check and empties tidily--pop it off, hold it over a trash bin, and pull the trigger to release dirt without having to touch it. The DC07 also comes equipped with a multipart filtration system to improve overall air quality in the home. The HEPA filter, measuring 412 square inches in surface area, traps microscopic particulates and allergens. Expertly built, the filter is designed to last the lifetime of the machine.

Suitable for bare floors and carpets, the Dyson upright features a 14-inch cleaning path and edge-cleaning bristles. A foot pedal switches off the brush roll for bare floors, and the nozzle automatically adjusts for various carpet heights. For above-floor cleaning, the vacuum also comes with a cleverly stowed, 17-foot quick-release hose with a reversible extension-wand handle. Onboard accessories include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, an upholstery attachment, and the Animal turbo tool. Designed for lint and stubborn pet hair, the turbo tool features an air-powered brush bar to extract hair from furniture, stairs, pet beds, cars, and other tight spaces.

Made from the same material used in crash helmets, the vacuum is unquestionably durable. Plus, the design only puts 4 pounds of weight on the handle, so pushing and turning is easy. This model comes with a 35-foot power cord and a limited two-year household warranty. It also includes a carpet care kit--a canister of Groom Zorb odor-absorbent carpet cleaning powder and a bottle of Dyzolv spray for spills and stains. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding Vacuum Cleaner!
Let me begin by saying that I have three dogs and two cats. Pet hair is the biggest cleaning challenge in our house.

After convincing my wife to discontinue our professional cleaning service, due to increasing costs, I volunteered to take the cleaning duties related to the floors and the furniture. My wife foolishly took on the kitchen, bathrooms, and dusting. What my wife didn't know was that I had been reading up on the Dyson "Animal".

The "Animal" arrived just two days after our last professional cleaning. I immediately vacuumed the entire house and was absolutely amazed at how much pet hair and dirt I pulled out of the carpets and off our hardwood floors. Our house has never been so absent of pet hair. Even my pets were beside themselves. My wife was thoroughly impressed. She said that the house looked and smelled cleaner than ever!

The "Animal" is a total cleaning machine. It easily attacked hardwood floors, carpets, curtains, furniture, and stairs. It's the best cleaning machine I have ever used. Adding a sixth animal to our family was the best thing I ever did!

If you have pets and need a high powered cleaning machine, get the "Animal"! It's worth the money! I donated my old cleaning machines to our YMCA.

5-0 out of 5 stars The purple monster lives up to it's name! "The Animal"
I first heard about Dyson from a airline magazine during a recent business trip. The article was very interesting. A few days later, my wife indicated that we needed a new vacuum and I started telling her about the Dyson.

At first, the price seems high, relative to other cleaners. We also have two yellow labs that shed through out the year. It was down to the dogs or me. Dog hair on the rugs, hair on the furniture, hair everywhere. The cleaner arrived in 13 days after it was ordered. It took about ten minutes to put the Animal together. My daughter and I followed the directions.

We first tried the vacuum in the upright position in our living room, which had been vacuumed about four days earlier. The machine picked up so much dog hair and dust that it filled up the canister about half way. We both were very surprised. We then tried the hair attachment on the furniture. It took some effort but the dog hair was removed. Our next challenge was the steps going up stairs. The wand attachment worked as advertised. We got to the top, while the Animal stayed at the landing. The design of the hose attachment is very clever. We have not tried the ZORB cleaner or the spot remover at this point. These items come with Purple Animal.

The furniture attachment and the hard surface attachment are loose items and do not attach directly to the animal when not in use. The 3 smaller attachments attach directly to the Animal.

This device is very well designed. The construction is very good. The appearance is a bit different but you get use to it quickly. The animal is easy to use, and very easy to clean. There are no bags and no mess to deal with.

Overall, this is a very good machine and the best vacuum that we have ever owned. Yes, it was worth the cost. And yes, the dogs can stay.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a vacuum that can handle MY life!
With four kids, a yellow lab, and a backyard that was recently torn up, the dirt in my house was driving me crazy! I had always bought Hoover Wind Tunnels. When our last one started gasping for life after about a year and a half, I thought that maybe I should consider a commercial vacuum. I started researching vacuums and kept coming up with Dyson.

Five hundred bucks for a vacuum might seem a bit ridiculous, but I've spend over three hundred on various Hoovers that have lasted only two years or so (I have to vacuum daily!), I figured if I get four years out of this, I'll come out ahead.

Basically, I can't tell you anything that you haven't read already concerning this vacuum, only that the reviewers who said it didn't have suction should try plugging it in next time!

It's easy to handle, sucks dirt other vacuums happily leave behind, is truly gratitifying to dump (you'll see), and works as well on hardwood floors as it does on area rugs. The cord and hose are far reaching and it is very stable when using the attachments or doing the stairs. The only negative thing that I can say about this vacuum is that taking the attachment piece out of the hose is kind of a pain. I used to use the attachments as I needed them. Now I use them last so I don't need to keep putting the wand back into the hose over and over.

One review mentioned that the Dyson eats the fringe off of area rugs. This is not a problem if you switch to the hard floors settings before trying to vacuum the fringe. One thing I didn't like about my old Hoover is that the beater brush didn't stop when you used the attachments. I put a hole in my floor when I caused my Hoover to tilt while using the attachments because the friction beater brush wore a hole through the floor. The Dyson's brush stops, so there's no danger of this.

I also like the fact I'm not going to be nickeled and dimed on bags and filters. As an allergy sufferer, I'm glad that the filter is easy to wash and reuse as often as needed. When I see what the Dyson picks up on a daily basis, I can't help but think that I've staved off at least one allergy attack in our household every time I use it.

If you're in the market for a vacuum, earmark some of your tax refund, or just decide to spurge, and get the Dyson. I did, and I don't have any regrets, just really clean floors.

5-0 out of 5 stars It just sucks in the BEST WAY!!!
I purchased my Dyson last Saturday, and I have yet to put the thing away. It's just the best. Easy to put together, easy to use, and it has suction like there is no tomorrow. My condo has hardwood floors, area rugs, and two cats. The floors and rugs have never been so clean. The first time I used it, I got enough cat hair out of the rugs for a new cat! I've also noticed that there has been much less sniffling and sneazing from my husband, who is allergic to dust mites. This baby is worth every penny, and I'm extremely pleased with my purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Vacuum out there!
I bought this vacuum today after a friend told me about it. We have a dog that sheds like crazy and my son is 7 months old and crawling. Needless to say, I needed something that would get rid of the hair! We have hardwood floors throughout our entire house and this vacuum picked up everything! It was so much easier than sweeping the floors with a broom and so much more was picked up! I would recommend this vacuum to anybody that has pets of any sort that shed. It's well worth the money! ... Read more

Equipped with a UV germicidal light to help kill airborne microorganisms and a three-speed fan to continuously circulate air through two filters, this portable air purifier removes smoke, pollen, dust, animal dander, dust mites, molds, bacteria, viruses, and odors. Helpful for asthmatics, allergy sufferers, and cold/flu patients, the purifier contains a true HEPA filter that is at least 99.97 percent effective at trapping tiny particles; a prefilter reduces odors. A digital readout displays air quality (good, fair, or poor), and the fan can be set to automatically adjust speed according to air-quality needs. Digital indicators show when filters need replacing. The purifier measures 19-1/2 by 14 by 8-1/4 inches and is recommended for rooms up to 350 square feet. Filter replacement is simple: open front, remove prefilter and/or HEPA filter, position new filter(s), and close. The purifier carries a three-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Quiter than Blueair
I have severe asthma and have been VERY pleased with the 04163 Hamilton Beach Air Purifier. I'm not sure what planet the negative reveiwers are from but I investigated all the options regardless of price. I went by Sears and looked at the Kenmore. The reviewer who liked it must work for Sears because it isn't even in the same ballpark as the Hamilton Beach. I briefly bought and returned a BlueAir which cost twice as much and is supposed to be the quietest. Instead it has an irritating high pitched whine that oscillates and would be better utilized as a torture device. The Hamilton Beach, on the other hand, is not only quiet, but the white noise it makes is actually soporific. I prefer to sleep with it on and it runs 24/7. I use to have a constant problem with mold in my master bathroom, but the Ultraviolet light on the Hamilton Beach has kept it from returning. The other day I chased my golden retriever into the bedroom with ear cleaner and to my surprise the automatic fan smelled it, and dealt with it, turning the fan on automatically to a higher setting briefly. I couldn't even smell it myself. To describe it's air cleaing capability, I will just end by saying this, the reason I am on this site is I am getting ready to buy a second Hamilton Beach for my office.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, For Its Price and Intended Purpose
Haven't had it for very long, just a couple of months, but I like it. I had a Honeywell room unit that was okay, but I had no idea how well it was working. With the HB, the air sensor gives you some idea of how well it's working. When first hooked up, the HB showed that the Honeywell was doing a good job of cleaning. At first, I thought maybe I should have just stayed with the Honeywell. I had initially stayed away from using the UV light, after reading that it didn't do anything. Wrong. When I finally switched on the UV light, a lot of my nighttime nasal congestion disappeared. That feature, plus the sensor, makes this model a 4- rather than 3-star product. (Keep in mind tthat this is a one-room unit and not intended for people with severe allergies.)

Seems to have a small but noticeable effect on keeping dust down.

Whisper Quiet ... isn't. But it's no louder than the Honeywell. I also selected Super Saver shipping, saved some money, and got it in five business days. If this unit lasts another year without problems, I'll buy another for another room in my house.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great but noisy
I have been using this product for a year now with great results. It really does seem to clean the air and has improved my allergies. The filters are extremely easy to replace when necessary. My only complaint is that it is noisy, too noisy for me to use when I am sleeping.

5-0 out of 5 stars Work great
My room used to be very dusty but since I purchased this product, the room is much cleaner.

Recommended

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed
It has been 3 months since I received the air purifier, one word, WOW.

For over 3 years, I have suffered from postnasal drip and congestion every morning due to minor dust allergies. I have noticed this has progressively gotten worse over this period. In an effort to remedy this situation, I was more diligent in dusting and cleaning my apartment and I visited my doctor a few times over the past few years. I was prescribed allergy pills and steroids in an effort to cure me, nothing worked.

I finally decided to buy an air purifier as general means of breathing cleaner air. I selected this one based on the reviews and comments others reported and was not disappointed. Literally, the first night I used the purifier, it cured my postnasal drip problem. The morning after, my nasal passage was clear and dry. I could breathe!!! Now every night before bed, I turn on my purifier and every morning now, I wake up clear and congestion free. I have even noticed when I am away from my purifier/apartment, the congestion returns.

Now to review the product itself... I must say the gadget-lover in me, opted for the UV light and digital readout of this particular model. Honestly, I probably could have done without the UV light and digital readout. There have been nights where I forgot to turn on the UV light and still woke up fine, perhaps it may be more effective in the winter when there are more germs flying around. The only semi-annoying thing is the device does not remember the UV setting when you turn it off. With the digital readout, I think I could have done without it. As I said, I love gadgets and features like this. However, it does work though. For example, when I open my window, it quickly determines the air is much dirtier and reacts accordingly. How smart!!!

People have noted that the purifier is very noisy. I think this is a purely subjective matter. I live in NYC on a ninth floor apartment off the East River on the FDR Drive. I am accustom to a certain amount of noise. I am subject to varying levels of car and wind noise 24/7. Concerning the purifier, I typically run it at low speed each night (I only run it at night). It is positioned at the foot of my bed. IMHO, using the lowest speed is no noisier than running an air conditioner at low speed. After a couple nights, it became white noise and is hardly noticeable to me now.

As far as size goes, I was a bit surprised how large it is but considering the size of the HEPA filter. It is not that bad in comparison. I am sure the larger size helps in better coverage of a large sized room.

The only negative I could come up with is the price (I paid about $140) but, given my success with the purifier, I cannot really claim this as a real fault. After 3 months, I am still on the original HEPA filter. The carbon filter I actually rinsed off the dust with some running water a couple times. It is a bit of a messy process but seems effective. I recently ran the built-in test on the filters and it passed. The replacement HEPA filter is a bit pricey; I think it should cost a lot less. They run about $40 to $50 each while the replacement carbon filters run three for $10.

Overall, I am very, very, very happy with my purchase. The money I paid was worth it. I can breathe!!! However, if can settle for the smaller size and/or without the digital readout, just get a lower-end model which sells for much less. The most important feature is the HEPA filter. ... Read more

The Simply Calphalon Nonstick Anodized line of cookware is an excellent alternative for those who prefer cooking on a nonstick surface and who desire Calphalon quality at a budget price. This 10-piece cookware set offers everything a cook needs to kick off a lifetime of meals. The set includes 8-inch and 10-inch omelet pans, 1-quart and 2-quart covered saucepans, a 3-quart covered saute pan, and a 6-quart covered stockpot.

Made of durable hard-anodized aluminum of uniform thickness, these pans are excellent conductors of heat and cook food quickly and evenly. Their double-coated nonstick interiors prevent food from sticking and make cleanup easier. The pans have oval stainless-steel handles with a blasted satin finish that are comfortable to grip and are held in place by sturdy stainless-steel rivets. Also made of brushed stainless steel, the lids are domed to keep moisture in during cooking. This cookware is oven-safe up to 375 degrees F so you don’t have to dirty several pans to make one dish. All Simply Nonstick cookware should be hand-washed and is covered by a 10-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed...
My wife and I bought this set about two months ago. We were excited to be able to get Calphalon quality at such a reasonable price.

Two months later, we find that the non-stick coating on the larger saucepan is already wearing through. I called Calphalon to discuss this. They were very surprised that this is happening already and offered to replace the pot under warranty. I told them I was concerned that this will be part of a trend and that all pots would have to be returned sooner than later. They suggested I try to return or exchange at the retail store where I purchased them.

I've been able to exchange the set at the retailers and have opted for Cuisinart MultiClad in its place. So much for the great non-stick experiment.

I'm surprised with the poor quality of the coating on these Calphalon pots. I have a large anodized saute pan of theirs (which I know does not have the non-stick coating) that performs beautifully, so was disappointed that the Simply Calphalon didn't perform better. I guess my set must have been a "Monday morning at the factory" set...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good set
I was looking to buy some higher-end pans without having to refinance the house and these fit the bill. They are durable, the handles are comfortable and they clean easily. Lids fit well, pans sit nicely on a smooth top stove and heat evenly. Walls are thick but pans are not too heavy and have a good balance. You can't ask for more for such a nicely priced set. The only negative is that the outside of the pans will scratch. I found it was cheaper to buy a set with fewer pans and buy the 3-quart covered sauté pan separately.

5-0 out of 5 stars Joy in the kitchen
These pots and pans will give you a new outlook on cooking and the subsequent cleanup. Easy, easy, easy. The cookware is heavy enough to do everything from omelets to fudge, and it cleans up with minimal effort. The lids are excellent also. This was a 'splurge' for me, yet it represents one of the smartest buying drecisions I've made.

5-0 out of 5 stars An essential cookware set for the cooking enthusiast
These are some of the best pans you could own. First, there is no higher quality, heavy duty pan out there. Second, they is surprisingly cheap for such high quality. Third, I have never tackled a project with these pans that has not come out a success. It is truly professional grade for the home. Even if you are not a professional chef or a food enthusiast, these pans make building a great dish easy. You don't have to worry about those non-stick coatings that peel off but you also don't have to worry about your food sticking to the surface. Ignore the fact that it is more expensive than K-Mart Brand Pan--It is worth the extra cost! Food always cooks evenly and always seems to do so effortlessly. It is the perfect size for a family of four or five and can be used for just about any situation when you don't have the proper pan (although you should really go and check out all of Calphalon's other pans too).

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Calphalon!
I'm not sure whether this is the exact set I own, but mine has the same pieces. I bought my set when I moved into my first apartment, and I don't plan on ever buying another set of pans. The non-stick surface is amazing (yes, I can brown perfect pancakes without oil and I never have to *scrub* them, even with burned on food). Its definitely worth it to have the clear glass lids rather than opaque [Edited to add: One of my lids shattered a couple months ago--I think Calphalon has stopped making the glass ones because of this, although I still like having the ability to see my food while it's cooking]. Also, before you buy, check the handles: Calphalon seems to have redesigned their handles so they are much skinnier (mine are nice and fat, so I can easily pour a heavy pan one-handed without straining my wrists. My parents have a set with skinny handles, and it is much harder to hold them one-handed.) I've put mine in the dishwasher a few times, and it doesn't seem to do them any harm, but they tend to dry spotty. I would rather baby them and hand wash than have them looking dingy. All in all, a terrific product whether you're looking for one pot or a whole set! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars nightmare of a gift
I have one of these machines and have had no problems with it. HOWEVER, I sent my 86 year old father one for his birthday (he had used a Panasonic for 11 years but it gave up the ghost! and he bakes bread like three times a week!). Anyway, he has done nothing but turn out "bricks" with this machine. Trying to help him over the phone has been frustrating, especially because we live 1,200 miles apart. Would I give this Zo bread machine as a gift again? NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

1-0 out of 5 stars I'm so frustrated!
I can't believe all the glowing reports I've read about the Zojirushi breadmaker model BBCC-V20. I have yet to make a good loaf of bread. Today I tried using an expensive mix from the store where we bought the machine. It is a flop! I do like using it for mixing and rising and then removing the dough to finish the bread outside the machine. My husband has talked with the sales rep, but her suggestions have not helped.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Bread Machine!
Just received my Zo X20 after using a West Bend bread machine (it died from overuse) for 5 years. I am delighted with the horizontal loaves and beautiful texture. The bread pan releases the loaf easily and I can't imagine having trouble with warping as the pan is quite substantial. I would like more recipes in the instruction manual but should be able to find some online. I'm surprised some people have had a bad experience with the Zo as my family and I have been very pleased.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time, money or ingredients!
If you have reached this page looking for a reference to the Zojirushi, here is my delima: I purchased this machine and wish I hadn't.
It looks and seems like it would be a good purchase, but when I got it home and tried baking several loaves, they were hard as a rock and wouldn't release from the pan. I called the company and they sent me new blades. That helped with turning the loaves out, but they were not eatable. The crust was very hard and the bread was so terrible, I gave it to the birds. I kept calling the company and they finally said to contact the sender and get my money back....thank goodness, I returned it and by recommendation of one of the South Beach forums, was advised to purchase the Breadman Ultimate. I hope this saves whoever reads this some time and aggrivation! Happy Shopping!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Toast
The journey to a perfect piece of toast begins with a ZO cx20. Out of the box, with recipes from the manual, one can be an instant able baker. The ZO turns out bread with a wonderful texture, nicely crusted outside with a tender interior. Perfect with a dab of butter when hot out of the loaf pan; great toasted with jam or cinnamon sugar the next morning. Not being of the baker persuasion, I purchased the Zo - after much web research - following the traumatic closing of our neighborhood Jewish bakery. I have experimented conservatively beyond the supplied recipes and have not been disappointed. The ZO's cost may seem steep to some at first, but in our house we are now eating better, but less, bread. Going from three modest to two large loaves a week, I figure the break-even (3x$2.50 purchase v. 2x$1.25 ingredients) will be less than a year. In about 10 minutes from this writing we will be enjoying just-baked slabs of white/wheat bread with good strong coffee. The prefect way to start a Saturday morning! ... Read more

Get a nutritious start to your day with fresh tomato, carrot, apple, or orange juice--or invent your own healthy blend. This powerful (and some would say noisy) 600-watt juicer churns out a quart of juice in just one minute. An extra-wide feed tube saves chopping time since it accommodates whole tomatoes, carrots, and small apples, and the removable parts make this one of the fastest juicers to clean. To operate, simply turn the juicer on and insert washed whole or chopped fruits and vegetables through the feed tube--pulp and seeds will shoot out one side into the provided pulp container, and juice will pour out the spout. To catch the juice, you can use either a glass or a provided juice container with lid. The juice container features a handy divider to separate the juice from the froth when pouring. Weighing thirteen pounds, the juice extractor measures 15 by 6-1/2 by 16 inches and comes with a one-year warranty. A helpful instruction booklet that includes tips and recipes is included to get you started. --Ann Bieri

From the Manufacturer

Changing the World, One Apple at a Time…

Unrivalled power meets highest quality components and revolutionary design in this life changing appliance. Touted as North America’s fastest juicer, after being timed making an 8-ounce glass of juice in an astonishing 5 seconds, the world’s fastest juicer might be a more apt description.Designed by innovative, world-renowned engineer Keith Hensel in 1999, the Breville Juice Fountain was the world’s first domestic juicer to accept whole fruit and vegetables with no chopping, peeling, slicing, or dicing.

Named for its ability to produce literally a fountain of continuous juice, where other juicers generate a mere trickle, the JE900 Juice Fountain has seriously changed the way the world looks at juice. Where traditional juice extractors require time consuming preparation, feeding, and cleaning, the Juice Fountain completes the whole home juicing experience in less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee.The Juice Fountain’s ability to juice whole fruit, to reduce juicing time by up to 90%, and to yield up to 30% more juice, stems from a combination of innovations. Even its unofficial tagline as "a juice bar in your own home" doesn’t do justice to just how fast and convenient the machine is.Thousands of families from Australia to Japan and everywhere in between enjoy fresh, healthy juice every day thanks to the Breville JE900 Juice Fountain.

Amazing Innovations

600-Watt Centered Motor

The Juice Fountain’s motor is positioned directly under the drive shaft so no power is lost in electrical transition or resistance. At 600 watts, the motor is one of the most powerful domestic juicers available, and its centered location directly over the drive shaft means a true 600 watts of power is delivered to the cutter and filter. The higher wattage not only delivers faster and more efficient juicing, it’s also powerful enough to juice regularly without significant stress on the motor.

Patented Center Knife Blade Cutter Assembly

The Juice Fountain is the world’s only large feed tube juicer to feature a centered feed tube and knife blade cutter assembly. Other juicers receive fruit and vegetables toward the circumference of the cutter-blade putting uneven pressure on the cutter and filter. As a result, it is not possible to balance the cutting assembly to attain sufficient speed for optimum juicing.The patented Juice Fountain design accepts fruit directly on to the center of the cutting assembly where a small, dual-bladed Italian made knife shreds the pulp into tiny particles and pushes it against the filter.

Over 14,000 RPMs!

The unique centered cutter assembly, together with the 600 watt motor, allows the Juice Fountain to deliver unparalleled speed to the filter.The Juice Fountain’s Italian micro-mesh filter spins at an incredible 14,500 revolutions per minute.The greater the revolutions, the faster the fruit can be juiced, and the greater the pressure on the pulp against the filter. Breville’s lightning speed filter ‘G-forces’ the maximum amount of juice from the pulp and makes an 8-ounce glass of juice in as little as 5 seconds (tested using apples). The 14,500 rpms of the Juice Fountain compares to about 5,000 rpms on most other juicers.

Italian-Made Stainless Steel Micro Mesh Cutter and Filter

Italian engineering is renowned for its uncompromising quality and eye for detail. The Juice Fountain’s micromesh filter is no exception. Comparing this to other filters it is easy to see that the engineering differences are significant. The filter holes on the Breville filter are so tiny that the individual holes can’t be detected with the naked eye yet the screen is see-through. The thousands and thousands of tiny, micro-mesh holes maximize the juicing surface area to squeeze every last drop of juice from the pulp.Because the holes are so small, they effectively block any seeds, pulp, or rind to deliver nothing but fresh, delicious juice.

3-Inch Wide Feed Tube

The Juice Fountain features the largest circular feed tube of all juicers in America. The unique rounded shape allows for easy insertion of whole apples, pears, tomatoes, peeled oranges, even handfuls of carrots at a time. Where other juicers take several minutes of chopping, peeling, slicing, and dicing, the Breville is large enough and powerful enough to accept whole fruit. This revolutionary design reduces juicing time by up to 90%, making the Juice Fountain a practical way to get natural nutrients and vitamins for the whole family each and every day.

Extra Large Pulp Container

The extra large pulp container is designed to fit a standard plastic grocery bag to capture all the pulp for no-fuss clean up. Because the pulp is exceptionally dry with the Breville Juicer, and the pulp container is so large, it is practical to juice continually for several minutes before the pulp container needs to be emptied.For those that don’t want to waste the pulp, the Juice Fountain’s free instruction manual has delicious recipes for muffins and cakes using the pulp.

Smooth Rounded Dishwasher Safe Parts

Easy cleaning was at the top of the priority list for the Breville design team when engineering the Juice Fountain. Having tested dozens of juicers and spoken to thousands of consumers, the overwhelming response was that juice extractors are just too difficult to clean. The Breville Juice Fountain is a delightful contrast. Not only is the pulp container designed to insert a grocery bag to capture the pulp, but there are only three other parts that require cleaning. All of them are top-shelf dishwasher safe and feature smooth, rounded surfaces that rinse easily under the tap. Even washing by hand takes only seconds as pulp residue slides right off the smooth surfaces. The Juice Fountain comes with a bonus cleaning brush designed to slide effortlessly around the micro-mesh cutter and filter making cleaning a breeze.

Bonus Juice Pitcher with Froth Separator

The Juice Fountain comes with a bonus 1-quart juice pitcher. Like the machine itself, the pitcher is cleverly designed with an adjustable froth separator. Some juice recipes produce a froth residue at the top of the juice and while some consumers enjoy the froth, others would rather drink their juice without it.The easy slide froth separator allows the user to have as little or as much froth as they desire. The bonus pitcher also comes with an air tight lid to store left over juice in the fridge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful and easy to clean!
This is my first juicer so I have nothing to compare it to, however, I can tell you that this machine is very powerful and very easy to clean. These are two points that make this an easy choice for anyone thinking about a juicer. I know myself pretty well at this point and if this machine was difficult to operate or to clean, it would be swiftly retired to the "Island of misfit gadgets" in the back of the hall closet. Thankfully, the machine has proved worthy of a permanent place on the counter, much to my wife's displeasure.

The machine performs the grinding and separating tasks very well so the resulting juice is free from seeds and other unwanted matter while still containing lots of healthy delicious pulp. I'm very pleased.... fruits and vegi's taste terrific juiced. I'm having fun experimenting with different combinations of ingredients.

One suggestion though is to buy the fruit ahead of time. It's hardly ever ripe when you buy it and I can tell you that your success (defined by great flavor) is heavily dependent on the fruit being ripe and sweet. Organically grown fruits are a plus if you can find them...no pesticides. There are some tricks to extracting the most juice from your ingredients in the instructions. Oh yeh, the juicing process results in a fair amount of the ingredients ending up in the waste bin. This is a normal part of the process so don't be too surprised by the amount. There are recipes for using this left over stuff, although I haven't tried any yet.

Now for the best part......the fresh juice I make in the morning, sometimes vegetable and sometimes fruit, is so satisfying that I have it for/as breakfast. It satisfies me until lunch, and surprise, surprise, I'm loosing a few pounds, slowly but steadily. A great bonus!

5-0 out of 5 stars DAILY JUICER
VERY POWERFUL MACHINE AND VERY EASY TO CLEAN. YOU CAN MAKE FRESH JUICE DAILY AND TAKES A FEW MINUTES TO CLEAN. THE UNIT ITSELF SEEMS VERY HIGH QUALITY AND WORTH THE INVESTMENT. THIS PRODUCT IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE JACK LALANNE'S POWER JUICER (MOTOR IS VERY QUIET) BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS THE BREVILLE FOUNTAIN JUICER HAS A STRONGER MOTOR (VERY NOISY) AND SMALLER IN SIZE. I'VE BEEN JUICING EVERY DAY SINCE USING THIS PRODUCT AND VERY SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR DAILY USE AND THE JACK LALANNE'S POWER JUICER FOR THREE TIMES A WEEEK OR LESS. 10 STARS.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great juice with some catches
Have had it for about a year now. The juice always turns out great. Other reviewers gave all the good points about this machine so no need to repeat them here.

Some irritating catches are...

The base where you snap in the blade gets harder and harder to take out over time. I've been very careful with the unit so I don't know why it happened to me.

A bit of shelf/countertop space is needed just for this juicer. If you have a lot of gadgets you are definitely going to clutter your countertop area since the unit is not small.

Though most parts are dishwasher safe, they may not fit in your dishwasher top rack. Even if they do, they will take up almost the entire rack. Also the funny shapes of the pieces leave lots of water on them so I have to rinse them after running them in the dishwasher.

Some tips for new users if you are to get one: the large chute is a big plus -- reduces the cut up time significantly. In fact, the smaller cuts you try to prepare, the less efficient this machine will be in terms of spinning more unjuiced (small) chunks into the waste bin.

If you juice carrots, try to keep the "juiced" meat for something like meat sauce. Adds wonderful texture and flavor to it. I always feel so wasteful while dumping the waste bin.

In sum, I wish they would design a more streamlined compact juicer. Yet, given what are currently available in the market, this is the one for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BREVILLE JE900 IS A MIRACLE TO ME!!!
i have previously owned a salton juicer and used a waring juicer. while still using the salton product, i did research on this and other juicers for over 1 month. i even considered the newer, more powerful breville model. I AM SO GRATEFUL I DID THE RESEARCH AND CHOSE THE JE900! i now have used the 900 4 times. i do not peal my citrus fruits nor melons. i make a gallon of juice or more each time. i am FINISHED JUICING AND CLEANING ALL PARTS OF THE MACHINE IN LESS TIME than it took to cut and prep my fruits and vegetables before. the motor is more than powerful enough to easily juice anything i have tried thus far. all parts are easy to clean and the machine is very user-friendly as is described in other reviews, right down to that plug AND scrub brush. i don't line the pulp container w/ a bag and it is STILL wonderfully easy to clean due to it's design. this machine IS NOT LOUDER than the ones i have previously used when juicing. i appreciate the recipes added to the manual book and look forward to trying many of them even though i haven't yet. i cannot thank the people at breville enough for an amazing product and i couldn't be happier w/ my JE900 machine.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Company Ever
Do not buy Breville!

I had the misfortune to break a portion of the juicer while housesitting, but was not too worried believing that a replacement part would be on its way in no time. That was 2 months ago!
I though the juicer broke a little too easily, but that is not even close to the extent of my annoyance. First of all, it took me almost 2 weeks before I even got a person on the telephone--only an answering service where no one returns your call. Then when I did get someone I ordered the replacement part with no trouble. Or so I thought, but it never was delievered to me.
I had also attempted to order it throught their website--which was a joke, they forwarded me a 14 page excel spreadsheet that I was then supposed to call into their unanswered telephone number. Anyway all this has happened and I have repeatedly tried contacting them with one assurance that my part would be replaced. Still nothing and no one will answer my emails. I returned to the website to get the phone number and I see that they deactivated the link to the phone number.
What good is it to buy an appliance that is comprised of 5 different pieces and the company refuses to honor replacement orders?
I would not buy anything from this company! ... Read more
