Amazon.com Review

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


22. Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 7-Quart Chef's Casserole with Lid

Amazon.com Review

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

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

This appealing blender looks great, with a rounded triangularshape that marries form and function. It pours perfectly and cleansbeautifully, but what we noticed first was the terrific grip on thehandle: firm and comfortable, like a great handshake. The lid is alsowell designed, sealing easily and snugly, with tiny rubber tipsattached on three sides to facilitate a smooth release and opening.This blender packs a lot of power, puréeing in seconds andturning eggs and oil into mayonnaise in fewer than two minutes. Fivespeeds let you whip up everything from chunky salsa to velvety soups;there's also a pulse mode when you need an extra surge to add solids orgive something one last stir. As a bonus, this blender looks great onthe counter or stores easily in two parts in the cupboard. --C.Whitney-Ward

Editor's Choice:Braun's PowerMax blender is an ideal firstblender--not too expensive and still heavy-duty enough for manyblending tasks--and is our pick for best blender under $50. It has fivespeed settings and a pulse feature. The blades are made of stainlesssteel, which makes them strong enough to crush ice (don't pack the icetoo tight, though), and they remove easily for cleaning. The blades,jug, and lid go in the dishwasher, while you wipe the base by hand witha damp towel. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Rated the Number One Blender by Consumer Reports
I bought this blender because of the review it got in Consumers Reports Magazine, an unbiased point of view. We use it everyday to make smoothies and baby food and couldn't be happier with the product. I received the product without the lid when I ordered from Amazon so I contacted Braun as Amazon suggested and the lid was delivered that week.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent blender
I know there are others out there like me: when I want to buy something, I want to buy the best. Naturally, I go for the top of the line. That usually means paying more for better quality. My reasoning is to spend a little more and I won't have to buy another one for years to come.

I'd been meaning to buy a blender for sometime now. After some hunting through the most well-known "consumer reporting" magazine, I discovered that this $50 blender, mixed, chopped and crushed ice better than models that were EIGHT times as much. This model is the best I've ever used.

Ice crushing was the key factor in the purchase. This baby crushes it in a few quick pulses. Frozen drinks are ready in less than 30 seconds. I use mine for protein shakes and it's a snap to clean. The key is cleaning it immediately.

I must stress that you can't find a better value for your money. This blender is amazing!

1-0 out of 5 stars So many problems!!!!
I know I can always rely on Amazon reviews to be correct and concise. I wish i'd read reviews on this blender before we bought it at Sam's club. Within weeks of buying the blender all the plastic pieces broke off! There was much blame going on in my home....now I see that quite a few people who bought the Power Max had the SAME exact problem!!!! I called Braun today and I expect to receive my free replacement part within 2 weeks. I hope that the blender works though I have my doubts. I will think twice before buying another Braun product!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Customer Service?
I do not own this blender.

A few weeks ago, I sent an email to Braun asking if the blade gear teeth issue had been remedied, as I was interested in the blender only if so. I forgot about it, not receiving a reply. Today a box is on my doorstep, and what is inside? A blade assembly! To a blender I do not own! lol

Still no answer to my email.

The aluminum cores conduct heatquickly and uniformly across the pots and pans' bottoms and all the wayup their sides. The 18/10 stainless-steel interiors and exteriors areeasy to clean and maintain, resist scratching, denting, warping, andcorrosion, are extremely durable, and are nonreactive to acidic food.Domed, glass covers permit cooking to be monitored without releasingheat and are oven-safe to 450 degrees F. Riveted, stainless-steelhandles stay cool on the stovetop and have hanging holes. Pot and panrims are flared to facilitate dripless pouring. Tri-Ply cookware ispolished to a mirror finish outside for beauty and wears a satin finishinside to conceal inevitable utensil marks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great cookware! You can't go wrong.
I have tried other brands of cookware and these are the best at any price I've seen. I own both a set of the Tri-ply stainless and the nonstick Contemporary cookware from Calphalon (bought one and won the other) and both are fantastic. As far as any discoloration on the stainless, try some Bon-Ami or Bartender's Friend powder. Works great and keeps everyting very shiny and clean. All-Clad is fine but for the money you can't beat Calphalon. Calpahlon is owned by Rubbermaid so maybe that explains why it is so good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Items on Our Registry
My fiance and I chose to add the Tri Ply series to our registry based on look and feel alone. We couldn't be happier that we did. They look beautiful and feel wonderful. FOOD ACTUALLY COOKS DIFFERENT IN THESE. I would recommend using lower heat than you would with a cheaper set.

I too experienced a discoloration after using one of the pots for the first time... had a heart attack! As per one of the earlier reviews: a little distilled vinegar... poof, back to normal!

FYI - We chose this set over an All-Clad set based on looks and price... but we have some friends who got the All-Clad set... ours seems better when it comes to quality...

5-0 out of 5 stars Better made than All-clad
I believe that both All-clad and Calphalon are now made in China. Go and compare both side-by-side. Check the lids for flatness (see if they "rock" back and forth or are level). Turn all of the pots and pans upside down and check for tightness of fit at the handle. Some of the more expensive All-clad have a space between the handle and the pan that you could slip a dime into. Really, go look for yourself. Calphalon has better quality control, the lids rock less (still a little every once in awhile), and the handles fit snug (less chance of food becoming trapped). They just seem to be a surperior product. Thanks for the tip on cleaning the inside with a tbs of distilled vinegar. Brand new and the insides picked up some rainbow color. A little distilled vinegar on the inside, rub with your fingers and rinse. Like new again. As for cooking these are great pots n pans. If you are not a serious cook get the commercial hard anodized or commercial nonstick. These are unbelievably easy to clean. A real pleasure to wash by hand, and they "brown" foods with no real difference if you are an average cook. If I were buying these again I would start with all the deep discount sale pieces and build my own set. Your food will tase better, the colors are much richer (carrots are orange and greens are really "green") I always thought that was just a lot of hype. My wife is a great cook. I am an "eater" and love quality products. Non of the handles get hot. Just use a normal light weight dish cloth. Happy eating

4-0 out of 5 stars This set is just beautiful!
I was concerned that I wouldn't use all the pieces, but I have found uses for everything here. They're like artwork in the kitchen!

The pans are nicely weight balanced and the handles stayed cool. I like the glass lids so I don't have to open them and release all the steam, but the steam fogs them over for a while anyway. The pans heated up at lower temperature and more evenly than any other pans I have such as the T-Fal skillets.

The pans cleaned easily with hot sudsy water and minimal scrubbing. I had some discoloration in my 2 1/2 qt saucepan that was sort of purple even after washing it twice. I panicked until I remembered the universal solution for cleaning stainless: distilled vinegar! It works on water spots and calcium as well. I put a splash in there it cleared up immediately. After rinsing and drying it was shinier than before I used it. Phew!

These are lifetime pans. I replaced everything I had with these. Some of the stuff I had since I got married, but no regrets. Just beautiful!

I changed my stars to 4 from 5 because those handles just aren't big enough to grip the pans and kind of hurt really. I wouldn't recommend these if you have any hand pain or grip problems. Also, I have a hard time cleaning completely around those pesky rivets.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Pans, but not the easiest to clean.
I bought these pans some while ago and I will echo the other reviews and say that they are outstanding as far as cooking quality goes. However, I find that they are not particularly suited to cleaning in the dishwasher. My pans come out of the dishwasher looking just as bad (or worse) as they went in. My suggestion is to treat these as hand-wash only. ... 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

This 12-inch everyday pan will end up being the hardest working pan in your kitchen. It is ideal for everything from simmering stovetop succotash and braising brisket to browning Dutch pancakes or cooking fruit tarts. Part of Calphalon's Commercial Hard-Anodized line of cookware, this pan is made of heavy-gauge aluminum that's uniformly thick across the bottom and sides, allowing for quick and even heat distribution. Its durable hard-anodized finish is stick- and scratch-resistant and won’t react with acidic foods. The patented cast stainless-steel handles are comfortable to grip, plus they minimize heat transfer so handles stay cool on the stovetop. Handles are held in place by three sturdy stainless-steel rivets. The included hard-anodized lid is dome-shaped, making it ideal for moist-heat cooking. The cookware and lid are oven-safe up to 450 degrees F so you can transfer a frittata to the oven for browning without having to switch pans. All cookware in this line is covered by a lifetime warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Top quality pan!
I have used Calphalon pans quite a lot and they really are some of the best cookware you can buy. This pan didn't get much use in my kitchen, I tend to use the frying pan and pots more than this. Like the other Calphalon pots and pans, this one is made of heavy-gauge aluminum which I absolutely love. It heats up quickly and evenly. It also has stay-cool handles, which are great for me when I'm having a moment and forget the pot holders!

I have used this particular pan for making omelettes and browning meat for tacos, so while its not the most commonly used pan in my kitchen it has seen a decent amount of use. I've never had a problem with the stick-resistant surface, its always been super easy to clean after each use. If something is particularly sticky, I just soak the pan in water for 20 minutes and then scrub it down. I also only use nylon Calphalon utensils, using metal will probably scratch up the pan.

The only bad thing about Calphanlon pans is that you are not supposed to put them in the dishwasher. You "can" but it tends to damage the surface and it also voids the lifetime warranty (which is one of the main reasons I tried Calphalon in the first place!).

5-0 out of 5 stars Come on! You know you need this one!
I LOVE this pan! Can't believe I bypassed my review of it. It's been a wonderful addition to my growing CALPHALON collection.

This has become THE first pan I grab for almost ANY application. The size is perfect for one pan family meals. Cooks a wonderful stir fry and will take the heat needed to acheive the same. I've fried egg rolls in it, browned meat in it, and even steamed veggies in it. Chili, sauces,paella...you name it...it'll work 9 out of 10 times you grab it.

This pan is broad and low, but has plenty of room for whatever you're cooking. Brown your stir fry meat, toss in your veggies and sauce, place the domed lid on top and "dinner will be served in 5 minutes!"

Calphalon heats quickly, browns beautifully, deglazes wonderfully, and clean up is a breeze in my book.

I now own quite a Calphalon collection and must say, with few exceptions, this has become my most used pan. (Gee, maybe that's why it's call the "EVERY DAY PAN.") Look at the great price Amazon.com is offering this for and click to order. You absolutely will not be disappointed and will have a new workhourse in you kitchen collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars MY WIFE LOVES IT
The wife is the one who uses it all the time. She loves that she can cook enough for the family in one pan. Clean up is a breeze. A great buy for anybody who does alot of cooking.

5-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT pan at an even greater price
I have used Calphalon pans for years, and I agree with other reviewers that their hard anodized pans are far superior to other pans on the market. Unlike stainless, they do not scorch. Unlike copper, they do not require laborious cleaning and polishing to keep looking nice. I find that when I read the reviews of people who have been disappointed with Calphalon's hard anodized pans, they typically did not understand what they were purchasing or how to use them. Hard anodized cookware is not non-stick. It is because the food INITIALLY sticks to the pan that you get such great browning. They are stick resistant, meaning that after the food has cooked properly, it releases, leaving a wonderful crust on the food and great browned bits in the bottom of the pan.

And what's all this about "ruining" the pans by putting them in the dishwasher? They may discolor, but they are not ruined. Nor do you need any special cleaners to clean them. If there is anything stuck that you didn't deglaze, a brief soak takes everything off. I've had my pans for over 10 years, and none of them have stuck on food, places where the anodation has come off, or any of the other problems of which some other reviewers have complained.

The everday pan is no exception. It conducts heat wonderfully, and works great on top or inside of the oven. It works for almost any job you can throw at it, from scrambled eggs to roasted pork loan to braised lamb shanks. Its size makes it perfect for family meals, yet it is not so big that you wouldn't pull it out for a meal for just one or two people. It is nonreactive, which makes it great for acidic foods like pasta sauce. The domed lid really seals in steam and promotes self-basting. And the dual handles make it easy to carry from oven to table. This pan really can handle it all. And at this price, it deserves to be in every kitchen.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
You will see the beginning of this review on several pans I am rating. After much research I decided on Calphalon anodized pans. I did so because A. I read that they were easier to care for and clean than stainless and B. I put together a set from Amazon at a wonderful price. I regret my decision because these pans are anything BUT easy to care for. They show every spec of oil and it does not come off easily with the special cleaner needed to protect the anodized finish. They also scratch easily when they touch each other. I hand them but cannot imagine how bad they would look if I stacked them instead. I am in the process of gradually replacing these pans with stainless which will not be ruined if one of your children forgets and puts it in the dishwasher.

I have noticed that the nonstick pans were made in China and the others were made in Ohio. I have seen reviews saying the Ohio pans are better. I did not find this to be true. The nonstick pans have shiney handles and lids that are much more attractive than the dull metal from the US made ones. Neither appears to be more or less sturdy.

Of all the pans this one gets the most use and believe me it shows. One reviewer said "who cares" about looks but it is not only the look but the health issue here. I do not feel comfortable with pans that are no longer anodized and thus leaching aluminum into my food. The jury is still out about aluminum and alzheimers, but I don't want to take the risk. My recommendation if you want anodized it to only buy non-stick so you do not have to worry about acids ruining the anodized finish on the interior. If you are not concerned about this then I think you will be happy with this pan. It is large enough to make a big meal. ... 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.

The Breville Story

Breville’s first electrical appliance rolled off the factory line in 1932. Over 70 years, and 30 million satisfied customers later, they’re still one of the world’s most innovative name in kitchen electrics. From the world’s first scissor action sandwich maker, to the world’s first juicer to juice whole fruit, Breville continues to bring clever ideas to life. Their renowned design team ensures that every Breville product makes life simpler, works smarter, and looks better, than any other appliance on Earth. Despite Breville’s global success, they only entered the U.S. market in January 2003 and are quickly becoming one of the fastest growing brands in the country.

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!

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

Perfect for deep cleaning without excessive strain, the self-propelled Hoover WindTunnel Ultra upright takes charge of its own locomotion both coming and going. In addition, Hoover’s WindTunnel technology creates a powerful double air path for maximum suction and cleaning. The vacuum even provides feedback on cleaning progress with the Embedded Dirt Finder--a feature that scans the floor for debris, signaling you if there’s still dirt to be picked up. You can operate the Dirt Finder on a regular setting for your routine cleaning or on a high setting for your deep-cleaning sprees.

The WindTunnel Ultra is designed for both bare floors and carpets, with a 15-inch cleaning path and three adjustable nozzle heights to accommodate variation in carpet depth. Dirt collection is bagged using Hoover’s Microfiltration system, and a helpful indicator signal keeps you posted on the bag’s status. A HEPA filter assists the bag, trapping 100 percent of dust mites and 99.98 percent of ragweed and common grass pollens.

The vacuum comes handsomely equipped for attachment cleaning with a stretch hose, two extension wands, a crevice tool, an upholstery tool, and a dusting brush all on board. (The Dirt Finder does not work with the attachments.) The most rigorous attachment is a powered hand tool with its own rotating brushroll--great for carpeted stairs and durable upholstery. Other useful elements include quick-release cord hooks, a carrying handle, a headlight, and a view window over the brush roll. Hoover covers the machine with a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Thought it was good, but SO disappointing
I thought for the money this would be a good vacuum. Easy to push, suction to pick up cat hair and dust. Boy, was I wrong. The suction never really was that great, and the self-propel feature stopped working about 2 years after purchase. What a disappointment.

1-0 out of 5 stars 9 months old - dead as a door nail
I picked one of these up August 2003 and I turned it on this afternoon: nothing happened. I checked the off/on switch with an ohm meter and it seems to be working. The "helpful" troubleshooting guide suggested that maybe there was a problem with my house's electrical system or that the cleaner I had not used for several days was overheated -- wrong! I suspect that the thermostat to detect overheating is broken. I agree with the other reviewers that the product is bulky, heavy and awkward. I cannot get in under the coffee table to clean because it is so large. It also tends to fall over when I use the applicances, also mentioned by another reviewer. The only really cool feature is the air-powered beater brush extension -- which I will not be using today because the Hoover does not suck...Avoid this over-priced piece of junk. Next time I will go with cannister vaccuum like the Kenmoore I had that lasted 15 years.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hoover - Good Performance
Have had this Hoover for over 2 years - purchased online. This Hoover has been a reliable product and has the best suction of any machine I have used/seen. My prior Eureka Christian Klingspore signature upright model had significant durability problems and not near the cleaning power which drove me to evaluate the Hoover based on the Consumer Reports rating. Am satisfied with its overall performance - good suction (not through the motor), good tool set with power brush, and is reasonably quiet, although it is a bit heavy (carry handle is conveniently placed).

Downside: When using the tools with the short hose, the vacuum tips too easily and can easily hit you, or nearby walls or furniture potentially causing damage (scratches/scuff marks).

I am satisfied with this product and would consider purchase of another many years from now, as all functions/features still work as when new.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Vacuum Ever!
DO NOT BUY this vacuum. It needs the belt replaced every few weeks and constantly smells of burning rubber even when you have just replaced the belt. The roller bar constantly gets stuck. After about 10 minutes of vacuuming (if you can stand the burning rubber smell) the vacuum gets too hot and turns its self off. It is very heavy to lug up and down stairs and it doesn't get into the corner of the carpets at all. All I wanted was a good vacuum that would work and even if this vacuum was cheap (which it isn't) it is still the worst vacuum ever!!! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

KitchenAid's stand mixer is a substantial piece of equipment: 250 watts of mixing power make child's play of creaming butter, kneading dough, and whipping cream. The kid in you will appreciate how quick and easy it is to mix up a batch of cookie dough; the 4-1/2-quart bowl can hold up to 8 cups of flour, which translates into as many as 192 sweet treats.

This model comes with three attachments: a flat beater for making batter, meat loaf, and all textures in-between; a wire whip for egg whites, mayonnaise, and more air-infused creations; and a hook for mixing and kneading yeast doughs. All three are solid in construction and easily secured to the beater shaft with a simple twist; untwisting them is a bit trickier because the attachment stems are short and can be hard to grasp, especially if they get the least bit greasy. The bowl itself locks tight to the base.

Standing 14 inches high, jutting out a foot, and weighing more than a grown woman's bowling ball, this stand mixer isn't the sort of appliance you'll wipe down and put away. Better to find a square foot of free counter space for easy access; besides, this machine is as pretty as it is rugged--you'll want to show it off.

To complete the package, KitchenAid includes a spiral-bound guide with instructions, mixing tips, and 67 recipes, from crispy waffles to a caramel walnut banana torte. --Betsy Danheim ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Does a lot, does it well
This mixer is the version of KitchenAid that lifts the head away to remove the beaters. The bowl sits on a round stand on the base. (Some larger units have a lift to move the bowl under the beaters.) At 250 watts and 4 1/2 quarts, in white, this is a mixer that fits most people's needs.

What this mixer does particularly well is tp prepare bread dough, using a dough hook that slaps the dough around the bowl, stretching it and beating it in an effective kneading motion. But if you are a cookie baker, this makes short work of the creaming stage where butter or other solid fat and sugar must be mixed together. The wire beater makes short work of eggwhites or whipping cream. Just remember to keep the bowl and beater free of any grease or oil when you do the egg whites.

In a way, the KitchenAid is a good substitute for a bread machine, doing everything but the unattended kneading, knock-down and loaf baking stages, which are pretty easy. I tend to make bread more in the KitchenAid than in the breadmaker because I prefer the freedom to make a round loaf, a braided loaf, rolls or heavier dough than a machine can handle. And for making cookie dough for Christmas or parties, this is a must. Five stars for this mixer.

5-0 out of 5 stars A mixer that is absolutely unbeatable
I'm one of those lucky people who has a kitchen full of top-quality appliances because I love to cook. Over almost 50 years of preparing meals and catering parties for family and friends, I've worn out several mixers. When the last one gave out I decided to try the Kitchenaid. After all, the brand had produced a dishwasher that I loved and the mixer certainly seemed sturdy enough.

Actually "sturdy" is an understatement; this is the most rugged, most solid mixer I've ever owned. It attacks the heaviest ingredients with efficient dispatch and never "walks" on the counter. On the other hand, it can be gentle with more fragile ingredients and processes. Its versatility is amazing.

The machine itself is no lightweight -- too heavy to move around much so it really needs to be easily accessible on top of a counter. Fortunately it's attractive enough to keep in full view!

There's a locking mechanism that attaches the bowl firmly to the base so it won't move when you turn the motor on. The three mixing attachments lock in place with a slight twist and are easy to remove. The paddle attachment is great for mixing cake and cookie batters, whipping potatoes, and blending any combination of ingredients. The wire whip incorporates air into egg whites or other blends with an impressive efficiency and the hook makes quick work of yeast doughs. It's easy to shift the speed lever even when the machine is operating so the cook has complete control of the process.

If you love to cook and you have a limited budget you can't go wrong if you splurge on this mixer. This machine is a winner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I have had this appliance for a few years now and it is still going strong. This was such a great "KITCHEN AID" in the kitchen. I would recommend this product to everyone. This is worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars buy the right kitchenaid
Have never heard a bad word about Kitchenaid stand mixers until I read one here from someone using the smallest mixer for big chores. In the last two years I have purchased a total of 14 Kitchenaid mixers, from the classic to the 6 quart professional model...all on sale. They were purchased for gifts for my daughters, church members, choir director and friends. I bought 7 Classic models, 4 Heavy Duty models 2 Artisans and the 6 quart professional for myself. I have not received one negative comment. When you purchase a Kitchenaid, do not purchase it by bowl size...you must purchase it based on the motor size for the jobs you do. If you are constantly mixing bread and double batches of very heavy dough, you should purchase a mixer with a heavy duty motor. This information is found on the Kitchenaid website. The company clearly tells you what each mixer is capable of doing. I know women who have had these mixers since they were brides 25 years or more ago...they are still up and running. They are an investment like good knives and heavy cookware...no real cook should be without one, but should be smart enough to buy the right one. I only wish I had one when I started baking 43 years ago, maybe I wouldn't have tendonitis from mixing all those cookies by hand with a wooden spoon!!! They are worth every penny.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you don't have one, GET ONE!!!
I always looked at the price of these mixers and just thought that it wouldn't be worth it, well, I put it on my bridal registry and lucky me, I got it for one of my showers. This thing can do anything. I haven't ever had so much fun baking in my life. I love making bread, but i didn't do it as often because of all the mixing and hard work. The mixer does all of the work, the dough hook is so awesome. I've tried many other things with it too, like mixing salad dressings, waffles, pancakes, cookies, it will work for anything. They are a little expensive, but they are totally totally totally worth it. Any cook must have!! ... Read more

Fully automatic and precisely controlled by a timer, thismachine takes the trouble and guesswork out of making ice cream,sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato, and frozen drinks at home. Ingredientsgo into the bowl, the timer is set, two buttons are pressed and about30 minutes later 1-1/2 quarts of a frozen confection are ready forconsumption. Because the machine doesn't require its bowl to be frozenfor hours in a refrigerator's freezer (like less expensive machinesthat only churn), it can immediately begin making another batch. If abatch becomes too hard the machine shuts off automatically. Not onlydoes it work professionally it looks the part, as the housing, bowl,and paddle are made of stainless steel for sanitation and easycleaning.

My father is the most discerning food gourmet. Not only did he attend culinary school, but he also is a phd in chemistry, so he knows his stuff. When we learned that he paid the six bills for this machine, we thought he was insane. Then we tasted the ice cream. Put simply, this machine will make the best ice cream you will ever eat in your life, period. It will humble store bought ice cream or the expensive kind in all those specialty boutiques, and make Ben and Jerry eat their shorts. Everyone in my family proceeded to gain twenty pounds soon after his purchase. Frankly, the ice cream is [wonderful]. The machine itself is top quality, everything stainless steel and bulletproof. If you are ready to step up to the ultimate in ice cream, this is it . . .

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm gonna get fat!
One word describes this machine -- WOW.

PROS
1. Fast. First thing I did with the Musso was pour in a can of warm soda, turn it on, and enjoy a slurpee like drink within 40 minutes! Probably could shave ten minutes off with a chilled can, but the UPS delivery-person had just dropped it off.
2. It is so easy to use, the first three batches of ice-cream I made with this machine was devoured at a party, despite everybody claiming to be "stuffed."
3. Clean-up? Bowl of warm water and a cloth. The blade comes off to be cleaned separately. (If you screw the nut on too tight, it's hard to get the blade off afterwards. I don't know if trapped moisture freezes it on, I just know that it can be tough to unscrew.)

CONS
1. Noise? For something that packs its own refrigeration unit and motor, I wouldn't complain.
2. Calories? Whipping cream, heavy whipping cream, sugar, and egg yolks are not good for the waistline or arteries.
3. Price? Yes it's expensive, though cheaper now than before. But I no longer have to go out and buy high quality ice-cream or Slurpees. That's money saved in the long run.

My only complaint is that the bowl seems relatively small for a 35 lb machine. However, since it "only" makes a quart in 30 minutes, I'll keep my mouth shut.

4-0 out of 5 stars 5 star performer, 3 star price
We love our Musso and use it 2-3 times per week. The ice cream turns out beautifully. We put in rm temp ingredients, and the ice cream takes 35-40 minutes to make. We have saved money and calories by making our own low-fat ice creams. The ice cream tastes amazing because we can put in quality, fresh ingredients without additives.

The main cons against the Cuisinart, Krups and other makers requiring a pre-frozen container:
1) Space-- insufficient freezer space for the pre-frozen containers. 2) Time-- the containers require 24 hr. inside the freezer. 3) Insufficient freezing of ice cream. The ice cream does not get cold enough!
The ONLY pro for the container: easy to clean.

The Musso with its self-contained freezer works faster and chills the ingredients to a lower temperature. It easily makes multiple batches of ice cream, one after the other. The machine is a gorgeous example of modern design. Italian industrial design still leads the world.

The main cons of the Musso: the bowl is part of the machine and is harder to clean; the machine takes up counter space and is heavy; it's expensive.

I will grudgingly admit that the Musso is worth its high price.

5-0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL! ..... and S-O-O-O-O-O easy!!!
I have owned this machine for two weeks and have made ice creams, sorbets, and sherbets. I grew up making ice cream with the old-fashioned, hand-cranked ice cream makers, with all the attendant mess and physical exertion. The 4080 makes it so easy that you almost feel guilty eating the final product! Cleaning is EASY and the noise level is moderate.

This straight-sided 2-1/2-quart pan can be used for sauces and, covered with its flat lid, for stews and casseroles. Shallow (3 inches) in relation to its capacity and diameter (8-3/8 inches), this pan, unlike conventionally proportioned saucepans, exposes lots of surface and is therefore ideal for reducing sauces or even stocks and broths. 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. The contoured, textured handle is cast stainless steel and resists heating on the stovetop; it's also triple-riveted for durability and balance. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan cooks without hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great saucepan
I recently ordered this based on my appreciation for Calphalon products and the great price. This is a fantastic saucepan that can practically double as a saute pan. It is surprisingly large and roomy, and the extra diameter gives it plenty of room for fitting in two or three chicken breasts, a modest steak, or a handful of veggies. I love it for making coq au vin since it isn't too large and goes right in the oven.

Nothing sticks to this pan if you add just a dab of butter or oil, and it heats up and cools quickly. One great feature of pure aluminum cookware is the fact that aluminum dissipates heat quickly, so pulling the pan off the heat is a great way to regulate the temperature when making a sauce. This is a great product and a wonderful addition to my Calphalon cookware collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars what a steal!!
Ok, let me get this straight...Amazon has 2 different 2.5 quart Calphalon Commerical Hard-Anodized saucepans, the regular, and the shallow. Inspecting the technical details of the two pans, one quickly realizes that they are identical except for the diameter and the height of the pan. The shallow is, naturally, more shallow (3 in. compared to 3 7/8 in), and therefore wider (8 3/8 in compared to 7 in) to accomdodate the fact that they hold the same amount of volume. What does this mean? More SURFACE AREA. What does surface area do? Well, think about it for a second: more of the pan is in direct contact with the heat because of the larger bottom. As a result, more of the food is exposed to the heat. The result? Faster cooking!
And this is a "sauce" pan after all. So what does this mean for sauce? Same thing as above, but remember, more of the sauce comes in contact with the air. More surface-to-air ratio = faster reducing times for sauces.
So we've established that from a technical standpoint, the shallow saucepan seems superior. It cooks faster because of a greater area for heat to contact food and for the surface of a sauce to contact the air. With that in mind, take a guess which one costs more. Surprsingly enough the pan with the lower amount of surface area costs at least %50 more than the more useful shallow saucepan.
So unless you are looking for a pan that reduces more slowly and has a much lower amount of versatility (try browning a couple of chicken breasts in the regulation sized saucepan...you'll have squished chicken), I recommend this pan whole-heartedly. The anodized aluminum does not react with acidic foods such as tomato sauces, looks really cool, heats quickly and evenly (aluminum is an incredible heat conductor), and won't bust your budget. This is the perfect way to own a piece of excellent cookware for a bargain basement price. Just remember, it is stick-resistant, not non-stick. This browns up much nicer than the Calphalon non-stick stuff, and you don't have to treat with kid gloves. About the only thing you can't do is throw it in the dishwasher (which you shouldn't do with any decent pot or pan) and use a knife or electric mixer in it (a hand blender is fine...the blades never touch the pot).

5-0 out of 5 stars Accurate info for prospective buyer research
If you are considering the purchase of this pan or any of the caphalon products in this line. Totally disregard the Toledo vs China comments. They have no validity WHATSOEVER! I've purchased two of these pans (1 Toledo's, 1 China), and there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. I've also purchased the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 9-Inch, 2-Quart Chef's Skillet with Lid(2 Toledos, 1 China), and again,there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. There is a difference in thickness & weight, if you compare them to other caphalon product lines. However, that is not to say they are inferior. They have a nice thickness and weight, great heat retention and dispersment. Awesome for browning, making sauces, stir frying, etc. If you follow the instructions for use, you will have no problems with cleaning,food release, or sticking. I have read most of the reviews, and the bad ones can be attributed to two things: 1. We alway seem to think stuff is way better made in America ... not true in this particular case. Those who made statements about Toledo pans vs China pans, could not own pans from both plants. 2. Complaints about sticking, or cleaning, ...they didnt follow the SIMPLE instructions. For the price, brand, warranty, and quality, this is one of the better kitchen purchases.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cannot Live Without
After using this product for the past three months, I have decided that I could not live without it. I have tile floors in my kitchen and hallway - and the grout had become so dirty and I never felt that mopping was doing much more than redistributing the dirt. It is a pleasure to clean the floor with this machine! I use HOT water which really helps to kill the germs and by taking the dirty water up off the floor after it is scrubbed, it truly gets the dirt up and off the floor. Thirty years of dirt embedded into the grout is coming out - and my once blackened grout is now white again.

The other benefit of this is that the floor is dried almost instantly - which prevents my small children from slipping on a wet floor.

If this machine ever broke - I would replace it immediately. I put it in the same indispensible categories as my dishwasher, vacuum, and washer/dryer.

I recommend this machine - which is especially nice to be able to clean floors such as basement, garage, and other areas where a sink is not available to aid in mopping - besides, this gets it much cleaner.

4-0 out of 5 stars handy... but messy
My family has owned a Hoover FloorMate since March of 2002, and it has been a great investment. It's much easier than getting down on one's hands and knees to clean the floor. My mom, who is in a wheelchair, can run the machine if someone fills it for her and cleans it up afterwards. The floors in the house have never felt cleaner. Using it still feels almost novel even after a year and a half of use.

However, it's disgusting to clean out the dirty water (which I guess can be a good thing, as it means the machine is working). The filter gets dirty easily, as do the scrubbing bristles, and have to be cleaned out after every use. Sometimes the machine gets an odor that is reminiscent of wet dog. The dry pickup also does not work very well. It is usually much more efficient to sweep rather than use the dry pickup.

The pros definitely outweigh the cons, but this is a solid four-star performer: a better than average product, but not close to perfect.

I finally bought the Floormate after researching it for about a year. I have read many mixed reviews about it and decided to purchase it figuring I could return it if it was awful...nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Now I have A LOT of very shiny, smooth porcelain flooring throughout my new home that I would have to clean on my hands and knees; buffing each tile dry or I would get hazy, foggy streaks. It took me on average about 4 hours to get it perfect (and the kids, husband and dog approximately 4 minutes to dirty it up!)

I got it assembled no problem (all I needed was a screwdriver.) I loaded it up with water and vinegar (all I can use on this type of floor, besides white ammonia. ) I couldn't believe the job it did on my highly difficult floors. Beautiful, shiny clean floors! I was so excited I was screaming Thank you! Cleaning it up when I was through was a breeze. All the parts pop on/off for easy cleaning.

There are some downsides. NO, don't expect it to scrub the grout, it will reach down there but not very effectively. If your grout was gross like mine was, use baking soda and peroxide and several toothbrushes (or the Scum Buster, which I don't have, but I hear it has a grout attachment.) The Floormate also doesn't get into the corners/edges all that well (I just do minor touch-ups here and there when I am through.) Yes, it makes a loud noise like a vacuum. Big Deal. It does seem to go through a lot of solution and the canister is a little small, so expect to make a couple of trips to the sink to reload. Again, no big deal. No, it doesn't pick up big pieces of food or the like, but I wouldn't use it for that reason anyway, that's why I have a vacuum. It does pick up sand and dog hair and minor dirt, which are my main concerns. It also isn't very quick. To be effective, you have to move it slowly over the tiles (forward to clean, backward to dry.) It did, however, cut my torturous cleaning time in half (and saved my back.)

So goodbye (and good riddance) to all my old mops. Goodbye Clorox Readymop, Swiffer Wetjet, and the hideous, hated O'Cedar string mop and pail. I am in love with my new Floormate!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Manilow warned me that it sucks
This product sure tells a good story BUT...I ended up selling mine in a garage sale for $5!!! Not only did it not perform as promised, when I tried to clean the dirt sucked into the roller area, I couldn't get it out. Then it started making a squealing noise every time I turned it on. Hoover has lost their TRIED AND TRUE product status with me. This brand name will be the LAST one I look at for future purchases.

I love this thing. Maybe the previous reviewers had defective machines. I think it is so easy to use, and my floors have never been so clean. I did the mop test too, where I cleaned the floors with a mop and then used my floormate, and you wouldn't believe what the mop has been leaving behind. I couldn't live without my floormate. ...
