    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.

    * 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.

    * 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.

    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

    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???????

    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

    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

    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

    This handsome, well-made chaise is tailor-made forsoaking up the sun or relaxing by the pool. A unique traytable extends to hold drinks, magazines, and other loungingessentials, then slides back underneath for storage. The backadjusts to five positions--from fully-upright tocompletely-reclined. Matching cushions can also be purchasedto add even more comfort.

    The bench’s slotted surfaceallows rain to flow through, rather than collect and damagethe wood. The piece is made from kapur wood, a high-densitySoutheast Asian hardwood with excellent weather-resistantproperties. Light enough to move easily around deck or lawn,kapur requires no finishing and is exceptionally-sturdy--withenough oil to repel the ravages of rain, sun, and dew.Rust-resistant hardware and mortise and tenon constructionalso add to the piece’s strength and durability.

    Beforeshipment, your new furniture received a generous applicationof teak oil. Teak oil provides protection from the ultravioletsunrays. Left untreated, Kapur will weather to a soft warmshade of gray similar to the weathering of teak. If you preferto prevent this weathering process, you may apply additionalcoats of teak oil. The frequency of necessary teak oilapplications will depend on the intensity of the sun in yourenvironment, but typically, one or two coats per year issufficient. Teak oil can usually be found at a marine dealer,hardware store, or internet dealer. If you allow yourfurniture to weather, you may later decide that you would wantto restore it to its original condition. This is possible byusing teak cleaner products, also available at most marinedealers and internet dealers. After following the instructionsfor cleaning, you will want to apply a coat of teak oil toprevent the weathering process.

    The lounge’spreassembled components fit together easily with the help ofan included allen wrench. This item measures 74 inches long,24 inches wide, and 12-1/2 inches tall. --Mary Park ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the price
    This is not bad for the price, compared to others in its category.Not as nice as teak, but for $99 it is a good deal.Warning, it is a bit shorter than most average loungers.My cushions from Pottery Barn were way too long for it.When you get it, apply teak oil to it right away.It gets dry quickly.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good price - a few quirks
    This item couldn't be priced better, and for the money, it's a decent chair.The wood is very pretty and of seemingly good quality.The assembly is minimal and simple ... that is, if you recieve all of the bolts.I, unfortunately, did not and am forced to make a pilgrimage to Lowes to find something comparable.I may call the (not toll free!) Strathwood number to see if they will send replacement parts, but I suspect that will take nothing short of a lifetime to recieve.

    After shopping for chaises, though, the price on this chair can't be beat.And with free shipping and minimal assembly, it is worth it.A word to the wise though ... "usually ships in 24 hours" means you will probably recieve it two weeks later.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, classic style
    These are great. Excellent value and classic style. I don't understand why one reviewer said they are not sturdy. Nothing could be further from the truth. These are heavy and sturdy and stand up to the weight of even large men! I would buy these again. Highly recommend.

    3-0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for!
    These are cheap for a reason.The good points are that they can be put together in about 15 minutes.They look nice on the patio.The bad point is I had to sand someof the wood.I got a splinter putting it together.The wood isn't a heavy guage wood.Don't let the kids jump on it, you will crack it.
    All being equal, for $98 its worth it.You get a average to below average lounge chair for a slightly below average price.If anything happens to it, OH WEll, I won't feel bad about tossing it.

    Too good to be true

    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. This processor comes with a compact cover for use when the feed tube isn't needed and a pulse control that allows the desired degree of fineness when chopping and puréeing. 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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars New to food processors
    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.

    I bought the Cuisinart food processor last 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.

    You just might find yourself using this versatile piece of cookware more than any other in your kitchen. Reducing sauces, braising meats, boiling pasta, browning chicken: this pot can do it all, on the stovetop or in the oven. This saucier has straight sides and a wide profile, and two sturdy double-riveted handles make it safer and easier to lift when full. (Don't forget that the cast stainless-steel handles remain cool on the stove, but heat right up in the oven.) Like all of the products in Calphalon's commercial hard-anodized series, it distributes heat efficiently, so foods brown quickly and cook uniformly. In fact, try cooking over a lower setting than you customarily use; Calphalon cookware conducts heat so well that it's easy to overdo the first few times around. Unlike cookware coated with a synthetic nonstick finish, the hard-anodized surface won't chip, crack, or peel if you use a metal spatula, and it doesn't react with acidic foods such as citrus or tomato. All of Calphalon's commercial hard-anodized cookware comes with a lifetime warranty, and if treated with care, it'll last as long as you do. Always wash this cookware by hand with mild cleansers, and don't place a hot pan in cold water--it could warp. --Mary Park ... Read more


    • Measures 12 by 4-1/2 inches; made in China

    • Heavy-gauge aluminum for superior conductiviity without warping or hot spots
    • Brushed "Cool V" handles stay cool on the stove top; hard-anodized lid
    • Safe with metal utensils; oven safe to 700 degrees

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best cookware
    This is not my first piece of Calphalon and it certainly will not be my last. I wasn't sure how large this saucier would be when I ordered it, and I still haven't found a place to store it in my limited cabinet space, but I have honestly had little need to store it since it works so well for most anything. It has a huge amount of surface area so it works well for searing and braising, but it is somewhat shallow so it is perfect for poaching eggs. Plus, this is an amazing price. Worth every penny.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?
    Like all Calphalon Commercial pieces, you are getting a high-performance, sturdily constructed tool that will make you a better cook.

    This saucier is wider and shorter than a typical stockpot, ensuring maximum heat transfer from the burners. It's great for such dishes as making chicken stock -- You can brown the chicken on the stovetop, then deglaze with water, etc., for a darker stock. Great for making soups, cooking squash, chili, etc. (Consider topping with cheese and sticking under the broiler for a few minutes to brown -- it's over safe to 700!)
    The combination of Calphalon's superior aluminum heat conduction and a wider top reduces liquids quickly, while cooks enjoy easy access into the pan -- something that can be tricky in a tall, narrow stockpot. Keep in mind that space can be an issue -- this stockpot can crowd out other pans on a small cooktop, and does take up an awful lot of space in your cupboard.

    One caveat: As with all Calphalon, you can not put this in the dishwasher (even if you could fit it in). The machine will leach out the Calphalon coating, causing pits and discolorations and void the lifetime warranty to boot!

    To clean, I find a little Bon Ami or Dormond cleaner and a Scotchguard green scrubber gets out anything without much fuss. Cleaning will be aided by proper deglazing. Also, you will find your food will stick less if the pan is preheated and if the food isn't ice cold when tossed in.


    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Calphalon does it again & again!
    I purchased (from Amazon) the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 8 1/2 qt. Saucier pan last Christmas as a gift to myself! It arrived prior to Christmas, so I used it to cook a beef roast on Christmas day. We were in temporary housing and even with having to cook the roast on the stovetop (oven not working), we couldn't have asked for better results. Then after our move, I roasted a hen in this pan in the oven; the hen was so moist and tender - my husband raved over it - the first time in 20 years that he's actually enjoyed a roasted hen. On top of that, the gravy made in this pan is the best - deglazing is so easy! This is a really large pan, but the heat distribution is so superb, there was not a bit of a problem even cooking on a small stove top burner. I LOVE Calphalon, and the Commercial Hard Anodized is my favorite line. Every few weeks I'm looking for another piece to add to my collection and replace my old stainless cookware. You just can't go wrong with cookware of this quality, and I know it will be passed down to my daughter becasue it just doesn't wear out. What a value!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great size
    This is the most versatile pot in my collection. I use it for everything from making marinara sauce to roasting my Thanksgiving turkey (a 25 pounder). I love the fact that the handles are heat resistant (unless you use the pot in the oven, of course). Some reviewers have complained about the size of this pot and insufficient heating. I have a fairly small stovetop, so to sufficiently heat the pot before using it, I turn the (gas) burner on high and test the perimeter of the pot by sprinkling water on it to test the temperature. Then I turn the temperature down to cook. This method has worked for me for over a year.

    5-0 out of 5 stars have to give it 5 stars
    This is the second peice of Calphalon commercial that is "NOT" nonstick that I have...Everything else is commercial nonstick, but there are times when you need this type of pot.
    When you have to Braise a big roast for pot roast, or chicken etc.... I put a little olive oil in this and braise the roast, with vegies , wine etc, it makes the best french pot roast, with the stock to die for, then I finish it off in the oven for a couple of hours...yummmmm...

    For some of you people that complained about this pot being too big for your stove top, cause you don't have the big burners, you can buy the Large Caphalon Defuser at William Sonoma, and you won't have that problem, it will cook everything on top of your stove even.
    ((Think the defuser is only made from calphalon for William Sonoma only))

    If you soak this big pot you should not have any problem washing it, Just make sure you do not put this or the lid into the dishwasher, or you will ruin it and void out the warentee.

    I think this is a must have, in your Calphalon Collection..I also payed less for this in amazon, but I hear that Calphalon is not going to be making there Hard-Anodized Cookware any longer, since they have come out with the Calphalon infused!!((call Calphalon and find out?))
    Must say I love the Calphalon Commercial nonstick, but I do like the new handles better on the Calphalon infused.

    We did not have the privilege of seeing this item as a more expensive top of the line.As such, we have been delighted (pun?) with Amazon service, ease of assembly, and performance features of the Performer.The large cooking kettle satisfies all our needs.The charcoal ignition is swift and complete, and, more to my liking, this is the first charcoal grill we have owned that burns ALL the charcoal.The self cleaning feature sweeps the powdery ash into the container for disposal with no half burned, grease soaked briquets.A wuinner at this price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Going on 10 years with my Performer!
    The husband I bought this for has since left me and luckily I got the grill in the divorce (he has since bought another Performer). Because I use this grill so frequently (3 or 4 times a week from May through October), I've had to replace the wheels, the gas ignition, the fuel tank, and the bottom kettle which literally burned through from use.

    Weber's customer support is EXCELLENT and their replacement parts are reasonable, ship quickly, and are easy to install.

    For a fast and hot BBQ with all of that good charcoal taste without the hassle of lighter fluid or newspaper, this cannot be beat.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A true traditionalist's grill
    I never owned one of the old style Performers so I can't speak to whether this is a step backwards or forwards but I don't have even one serious complaint about this grill.It has all of the convenience of a gas grill and all of the advantages of charcoal.The best part is realizing how much better CHARCOAL tastes when it's not started with lighter fluid!

    The workspace is ample.The charcoal bin is convenient and stable.The ignitor lights on the first or second press (though mine is relatively new) and it feels very safe and stable.

    It would be nice if the cooking grate were a little heavier.The steel grate just doesn't hold heat as well as cast iron.If there were an aftrermarket cast iron grate, I'd buy it.

    By the way, assembly couldn't have been easier.I was amazed at how easy it was to build.

    Bought it due to high recommendation. After using it for 6 days, the juicer quit working. I loved it while it was working and plan to return it for a replacement. It was everything it promised except for a power supply problem. Amazon is standing behind it and replacing it (I think).

    This is a very fast and powerful juicer. It has two speeds which is great for soft and hard veggies and fruits.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best 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!

    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.

    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'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!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Baby Gets It Done
    I've owned several other portable grills (Grill-2-Go, $20 propane grills), but this one is by far the best. You know it is something special when it arrives fully assembled except for attaching the lid.

    The cast iron grilling surface makes those great searing marks and lets the food cook evenly. The regulator on this grill really allows you to adjust the size of the flame (unlike cheaper grills). The drip pan is also great and replacements can be purchased at local hardware stores.

    We use this grill with our RV and it is the perfect size for our family of 3. I don't see how we could use the full size Weber Q --- the baby Q is more than large enough for us.

    Kudos to Weber!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!
    I was thinking about purchasing the Q Grill but was hesitant because of the size. Then I saw the Baby Q "new" this year! All I can say is that it's an amazing grill! Well crafted, very very portable and cooking with it is amazing! The food does not taste like propane whatsoever. And it makes perffffect grill marks!!! Just fantastic!!! The built-in starter is a good added bonus for this gas grill!! Also, the grill is bigger then what it looks like online. You can easily cook two chicken on this thing!!

    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

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the one to get
    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

    3-0 out of 5 stars Works well, but mine was made in China - so-so workmanship.
    I bought this pan based on the performance and construction of other Calphalon cookware I've purchased. However, as soon as I unpacked this one, it was apparent that the workmanship and finish was significantly below my other Calphalon pans. The pan rim was unevenly ground - the lid fits flat, but looks uneven when the lid is removed. The polished lid has numerous tiny pits and marks not found on my U.S. made Calphalon. I suppose this is one of the trade-offs for the great price, although if I were Calphalon, I'd market the China-made line under a different name if they can't maintain the quality standards of the Ohio made line.

    I had previously purchased the 9" Commercial Nonstick Collector's Edition Everyday Pan with Lid from Amazon, which was made in the Ohio, and was very impressed with the contruction and finish. (It also works very well, but is a bit tippy on burners when empty.)

    Cooking quality is fine so far. I hope the nonstick finish will prove as durable as the U.S. made pans.

    The size, overall appearance, and dual loop handles allows this pan to work well as a serving piece on the table for casual dining.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Calphalon, my Calphalon
    This was my second Calphalon purchase and the first non-stick. I'm not a big fan of non-stick, but this is great. Use it almost everyday. We have a Vegetarian Communist in our house and sometimes it is necessary to cook the same thing in two different pans...this comes in really handy when I want to leave something cooking while I concentrate on real food. Never had anything stick to this or burn, looks great too, have actually brought it to the table and served from it. Makes a great frittata, but be careful if you use it in the oven, not for use under the broiler. The handles get VERY hot. I knew that when I bought it, but just last night I picked it up without a pot holder and have the blisters to prove it. I can't believe I went all these years cooking without Calphalon, it's the best. Cleans up without any effort, a swish of the sponge and it's clean, or you could let the cat lick it out, nothing sticks to it. If you want what you're cooking to brown, this is not the pan to use, grab the hard-anodized for browning to perfection. Ciao!

    4-0 out of 5 stars IT DON'T GET NO BETTER THAN THIS, BUBBA!
    Got this little Calphalon pan about two months ago because of its price. Have been impressed with it ever since! Heats fast and evenly. Can cook on much lower temps than I do with my commercial stainless steel cookware. This "three-layer" nonstick coating IS FAR SUPERIOR TO CALPHALON'S TWO-LAYER NONSTICK USED ON SOME OF ITS OTHER PRODUCT LINES! Downside: a) Thought it would be made in Toledo, OH, as are other Calphalon Commercial pans, but was made in China; b) Is on the smallish side and its rounded sides make spillage and overflow a problem if you fill it much more than half-capacity with something that requires stirring--don't expect to cook servings for more than two or three in it; c) Lid and handles do get hot, so have to be careful. But overall, given its price and quality--not to mention its pleasing aesthetics--it is a "must have" pan for every kitchen! (Curiously, despite Calphalon describing this pan as its "commercial" line, the lifetime warranty notes that it does not apply if "used in commercial establishments"!)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Made in the USA...
    I felt that I needed to write a review to correct another reviewer. One review says that Calphalon no longer seems to making their cookware in the United States, however this is untrue. The Calphalon Commercial Nonstick line is made right here in the good old USA. This is the line I own, and I LOVE it. I will never puchase anything else. Calphalon does make a (much) cheaper line of products that they sell in stores like Target that you can get for about a third the cost of the Calphalon Commercial Non-stick line, and I believe that those are made overseas. I have owned a cheap set of Calphalon from Target, and I must say, it was bad cookware. But the high quality stuff is well worth the cost. Calphalon Commercial Non-stick is the best- it really is nonstick, the clean up is a breeze, and the coating doesn't come off after heavy usage. They also have a lifetime guarantee, so if you happen to get a piece that missed quality control, they will replace it. I must say that if you enjoy cooking, this is the set for you. I consider the higher cost an investment, because before I bought this cookware, I would go through the cheaper cookware pretty fast. This line will last you a lifetime, and Calphalon will be the last brand of cookware you will ever own.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great quality, too small
    I have a number of the commercial nonstick pans. If you're patient you can assemble a good set when the individual pans become discounted. This pan is the same as the rest - great quality and great looks. It cooks and cleans easily. My only complaint is that it is too small to be used very often. I have the larger version as well and I use it all the time. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars singer 5050 sewing machines
    when i first saw this machine i thought it to be the best in its price range. it offered lots of features like the four step button hole , 52 stitich functions etc. the day i brought home my first new machine , the bobbin case was loose and so the machine wasn't working. i returned it and exchanged it for another one and this time the stitch selector function wasn't working..i was really dissappointed with both the experiences.i do not recommend buying this machine without first checking if all the functions are working..i think it would be best to buy refurbished ones as they are repaired and factory tested and seem to be doing well. i bought my machine from walmart and they exchanged it without any fuss and i was glad i bought it there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mid-Range Sewing Machine
    The Singer 5050 provides an excellent mid-range sewing machine at a low-end price.

    Although not automatically threading like many top-of-the-line machines, the 5050 is incredibly easy to thread--moreso than even the underpowered little handheld stitchers advertised on TV. The thread tension and stitch widths are easily adjustable, providing for accurate, strong seams that don't snag or snap the thread during sewing.

    The 5050 includes 50 different stitch functions (made from 32 stitches), can do 4-step buttonholes with ease, and can be used to do darning, embroidery, and all manner of decorative stitches.

    Accessories included are a second pattern module (for an alternate 25 stitch functions), zipper, button, blindstitch, and special-purpose presser feet, an assortment of needles, a friction-free plate for embroidery, and spare bobbins. The feet simply snap on and off for quick changes.

    The machine also can do free-arm sewing for easy cuff and hem finishes, is controlled electronically via a foot switch for excellent speed control, and is all-around one of the most excellent machines in its price range. ... Read more
