Tough polypropylene handles with full, visible tangs and thetraditional three rivets distinguish Classic knives from Wüsthof'sother cutlery lines. Otherwise Classic knives are identical to otherWüsthof knives, embodying all the virtues that have earned theGerman manufacturer world renown. The principal parts of a Wüsthofknife--blade, bolster, and tang--are forged from a single piece ofhigh-carbon stainless steel, and the blade is precisely tapered frombolster to tip and from back to hand-honed edge. The blades andbeautifully formed bolsters are not as thick as on some knives. As aresult, despite their heft, strength, and durability, Wüsthofknives are pleasingly delicate and marvelously balanced in action.

This 7-inch santoku is a Japanese cook's (or chef's) knife, featuring alow-tip style with a broad blade. The cutting edge is minimally curved,so it provides less rocking action than a European-style cook's knife.For straight-down slicing and precise chopping, however, it's superb.Alternating hollows on each side of the blade create air pockets,allowing slices to fall away cleanly. This knife should be hand washed.--Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Santoku Knife for Sushi, Sashimi, & Carpaccio
After being so pleased with a fine-edge Santoku knife that I use for chopping and slicing vegetables, I decided to add this hollow-edge Santoku knife to my collection of Wüsthof-Trident Classic knives. I've been using less-expensive Asian knives for a long time, but the Wüsthof Santoku knives have now become my favorites because of the shapes of the blades and the quality of the handles. On this hollow-edge Santoku, there are oval indentations or 'kullens' on the side of the high-carbon, no-stain steel blade, so you can quickly and easily make very thin slices of your meat, fish, and veggies. I use this Santoku for preparing sashimi and carpaccio. (I don't make sushi, but this knife would be excellent for that, too.) So far it has stayed very sharp without any need for professional sharpening. I hand-wash and dry it and store it in a wooden knife block.

For those of us who love to cook much of our pleasure is experienced in the preparation - whipping egg whites to a perfect frothy peak, cutting cookies into imaginative shapes or slicing cleanly, quickly and neatly the ingredients for casserole or soup.

This Japanese inspired Santuko knife by Wusthof has certainly added to my joy in the kitchen. It's the perfect implement for slicing, dicing or chopping. Alternating indentations prevent food from sticking to the blade, while its heft and balance are perfection.

A razor sharp blade allows me to slice as thinly as I wish, whether it be for carpaccio or the prosciuto we so enjoy. It's ideal for the cheese and ham in panini, and makes quick work of onions and celery for a family recipe for vegetable soup.
Of course, an added bonus is the Wusthof name, which we have learned means quality.

I do recommend that you hand wash it, just as you would a fine piece of silver. Believe me, this knife is sterling in every way.

MAC Knives Superior Series SK-65 - Superior Santuko - 6 1/2 inch ($55) finished first, followed by Kershaw Shun Classic ($89.99), Wustof Grand Prix ($69.99) and Global Oriental Cook ($78).

Our reputation as the World's finest knife is based on the experiences of MAC knife owners who use our knives every day. They tell us that once they began using their MAC knives, they could never go back to their "old" knives--Henckels, Wusthofs, Sabatiers, Gerbers, Chicagos, Globals, Cutcos.


RAZOR SHARP EDGE. The MAC knives are truly razor sharp. In head-to-head tests against all other manufacturers, we have never found a sharper knife.

STAYS SHARP. Our special alloys and hardening processes have created edges which stay sharper many times longer than other knives.

THIN BLADES FOR RESISTANCE FREE SLICING. Our thin blades glide effortless through each slice Other knives "wedge" and get stuck in the cut because of their forged construction or grind type.

ERGONOMIC DESIGNS. Each and every one of our designs have been tested and optimized for their particular application. Put any of the MAC knives to the test by actually using it and you will appreciate and understand the difference.

The knife that received top honors in both Bon Appetite and Cook's Illustrated magazines against all other knives tested.

We agree, this has been our top knife recommendation for the last two years for a chef style knife.

5-0 out of 5 stars I need more things to chop
After chopping and slicing everything in the refrigerator since I got this knife yesterday, I thought I should take a break and write a review. This kinfe is just amazing.
I have a set of OK knives that until yesterday I thought were pretty good. I've never had a really expensive knife before, though.
After reading all of the great reviews here of the Wusthof Santoku knife and seeing how popular it is on the Food Network (Yea, I know, I'm a little susceptible. I also have an Eggstractor)I went to the store to check one out. I couldn't believe how well-balanced and light it was, without feeling flimsy. I took the plunge and do not regret it a bit.
The first time I chopped up an onion it sliced through it with hardly any effort. I just stood there in awe.
It's incredibly sharp and feels comfortable in my hand. I also like the shape, kind of a cross between a chef's knife and cleaver. I suspect my old knives will be relegated to chopping up bones and other things that would damage this one. But for anything that requires a bit of finesse, I will reach for the Santoku.
Well, I think I've gushed enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Well Balanced!
This knife is fantastic. Makes the boring job of chopping a whole lot easier. One thing to be careful of though, when things stick to the sides of the knife, it is best not to use your finger to slide them off, it will get ya. Otherwise, I highly recommend it. It is worth every penny! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Only one complaint
Well, technically, I can't complain. It does what it's advertised to do -- make a piping hot cup of coffee in about 90 seconds with foam on the top. Changing coffee brands took some getting used to. For a company that's been in business since 1753, Douwe Egberts has a few things to learn about coffee. It has a sour taste that always makes me wonder if my cream has gone bad. Folgers Home Café makes pods about the same size. I never thought I'd be drinking Folgers, but it tastes better than the coffee designed for the machine. Were someone to come up with a reusable coffee pod, I'd go through the extra bother to get an excellent cup again. My one gripe with the Senseo is that the spout is fitted too low to accommodate any of my coffee mugs. The spout should be adjustable to provide an extra 1/4 to 1/2 inch of space if needed. I looked at the two cups that came with the machine only long enough to judge their weight and balance so I could sail them across the kitchen into the trash container. I found just one mug in my kitchen short enough to fit under the spout, so now I drink my coffee from my son's Winnie the Pooh Happy Birthday hot chocolate mug. He stopped drinking out of that mug 10 years ago. (sigh)

5-0 out of 5 stars Time for a coffee break worth every sip
Let me stress that I don't work for the manufacturer or for Sara Lee!

I received my machine on 9 April 2004 and brewed a cup within a few minutes (after flushing the machine as recommended). Even the medium roast tasted richer than most coffee I've made with traditional coffee makers. My wife likes a milder tasting coffee, so the mild roast is perfect for her. The dark roast is the closest to espresso you'll get without spending hundreds on an espresso machine. The coffee is nice and hot and the "crema" layer on top completes the experience!

For those who gave this machine poor reviews, make sure you wash the pod holders and water tank and flush the machine before the first use. If you don't use it for more than a day, flush it before use with fresh, cold water. Be sure to use the correct pod holder and press the correct (4 oz or 8 oz) button. Place the pod with the flat side up(has the Senseo logo printed on this side). Use fresh, cold water (probably the most important ingredient in coffee) and don't reuse the pods! I tried this and the second cup tasted like "coffee from a can" coffee. Finally, and most important: give the coffee a stir before drinking. The bottom layer contains most of the good stuff.

I hope that other coffee roasters are reading these reviews and will offer pods. My only concern at this point is that there aren't any alternative pods from other roasters yet available. The Douwe Egberts brand coffee is excellent, but the availability of a variety of blends and beans will be demanded soon, because sales of this machine are sure to take off!


4-0 out of 5 stars European coffee at its best
This is a great coffee maker if you like strong european coffee, which I do. The cup sizes are smaller than what most americans are used to, but the coffee tastes great, and more is not needed. I've been looking for something like this for ages. Glad I found it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Looks Good, Tastes Lousy
This machine looks great on the counter and you can't beat the convenience. You'll have 4 ounces (1 pod) or 8 ounces (2 pods) of the most mediocre and expensive coffee you could hope for in less than two minutes--from a cold start. Maybe it's not the coffee, but the process that turns out this cup of...whatever it is. I don't know. <br /> <br /> Maybe some other models make a better cup of coffee--and a real cup, not this dainty 4 oz toy cup. Try before you buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah BABY!!!
I got a Black & Decker home cafe for my birthday in September. Great coffee...well due to reviews on this site I kept the box and receipt (it was from Target..of course :). Well it worked <br /> for about 6 weeks...and then started spewing water everywhere. <br /> I boxed it up and took it back and decided I could be ok with <br /> my drip coffee maker...well here I am 1 week later...I was <br /> making my sorry drip coffee this morning and...long story short. I couldn't I went to target this afternoon <br /> and used my gift card (from the Home Cafe return) to purchase <br /> a nice black senseo. <br /> <br /> I have just finished my first cup of coffee from the Senseo and WOW. AWESOME. There is no contest between the coffee <br /> from the senseo and the coffee from the home cafe. The home <br /> cafe made lukewarm coffee...the senseo made coffee just slightly too hot to drink right away...PEFECT IMHO. I like <br /> my coffee to be good and hot when I first drink it.<br /> <br /> Also, the senseo is most certainly of higher qualite' than <br /> the B&D machine. It doesn't feel like it's going to fall <br /> apart when you touch it. I did take the advice of the <br /> reviewer who said to thoroughly clean and soak all the pieces <br /> before using the machine and I don't notice any strange chemical-like taste. <br /> <br /> Anyway, major thumbs up. I thought the home cafe would be <br /> nicer because you can get a 14 oz cup of coffee..but honestly <br /> 8 oz is PLENTY and really if you wanted 12 you can just <br /> brew an 8 oz cup and press the 1 cup button again and get <br /> your 12 oz. It would be nice if you could fit a travel mug <br /> in it...but I did get quite a large mug that I have under <br /> the spout so this isn't that big of an issue. <br /> <br /> I also find that one pod is enough even with 8 oz of coffee. <br /> It was quite strong (course I am an American and all so not <br /> used to drinking straight up espresso)....and just about <br /> perfect for my taste. <br /> <br /> Anyway, just wanted to let you all know I think the senseo is <br /> a great buy. Now if the pods would come down in price I'd <br /> be REALLY pleased. :) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Different, but still good
I grew up with one button rice cookers. The kind I liked the best was one where you would put water on the outside of the rice pot as well as in the inside of the pot with the rice and then press the button. I don't think they make those anymore. Nowadays you have to keep the outside of the pot dry. Kinda a pain after you got it wet washing the rice.

Back when I was growing up we made delicious rice, rice porridge, steamed sausage over rice, steamed chicken and vegetables in broth, bean soup, etc. using the simple one button rice cooker. The trick for some of the dishes is to run the cook cyle twice to cook longer.

I mention all this to explain why just having a rice cooker cooking different things doesn't totally impress me. I'm used to having one that is simple to use and versatile.

With this background, I was a little bit disappointed in the ZAC10 rice cooker although I still think it is an excellent product.

This neuro fuzzy is CUTE. And it makes DELICIOUS oatmeal. It also makes cheaper rice taste better. The keep warm feature works perfectly -- no making a crust. I use the timer feature for oatmeal in the morning - very nice to have.

But it is also awfully SLOW. I'm used to the rice cooker cooking faster than the stovetop method but this one is just as slow if not slower. For 1 small cup of rice it takes 40+ minutes. The machine I grew up with took 20 minutes. Even the quick cook feature on this machine takes 30 minutes.

Theoretically you can't use this as a steamer according to the Ultimate Rice Cooker cookbook I also bought. That's too bad since I am used to steaming things in a rice cooker. I will play around with it though and see if that's really the case.

I am still torn about whether to get this for my motherinlaw this Xmas. She loves oatmeal but cooked in milk so the timer feature won't help her. But still, it makes delicious oatmeal without her having to stand and stir. And it keeps it warm for a long time. What's making me hesitate is that she doesn't eat rice that often and the buttons in the front are rather daunting. (It really isn't as complicated as it looks though) Also the manual has no good recipes. It doesn't even tell you if you can make oatmeal with milk or not in it. (You can.) On the web they have some and if I were to get this for her I would definitely print out some recipes to go with it. This would be an expensive gift not to be used.

If you eat rice alot or like rice, oatmeal, porridge, that kind of thing... a rice cooker is a must and this one is a great one. Just realize that if you're use to a one button rice cooker you'll be giving up simplicity.

I have demoted this from a FIVE star to a FOUR star product. It still makes wonderful rice but disappointingly it doesn't handle oatmeal cooked in milk (1% fat). I've tried it three times now, two times on porridge cycle and this thing made a COLOSSAL MESS. Hubby said it's like a baby puked all over it, inside and out. The thing spewed oatmeal which stuck and dried everywhere (I got to it two hours after it went on keep-warm). Even though the inner part of the lid pops out, it still took nearly an hour to clean up the nooks and crannies of the thing. I definitely suggest watching it if you cook oatmeal with milk and maybe even opening it up several times to release the steam. Better yet, do it on the stovetop. Too bad because the oatmeal still left in the pot that it didn't spew out tasted fantastic.

To be fair to the recipe, I should say I used quick cook oats (1 minute type) instead of the steel cut slow cook type oatmeal. Maybe that made a difference. BUt if so, too bad because I still have a lot of the other kind of oatmeal to use up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it
We hestitated for a while because of the price. But once we took the plunge and tried it out, we couldn't be happier. In the past, we've had both the cheap, one-button type and the microchip type, and if you have rice 2-3 times a week, you definitely want to go with the better model. (We pitched the cheap model immediately; the rice turned out part crusty, part mushy, part burnt.) The Zojirushi is an improvement on our previous microchip model because 1. it's easier to clean, with the lid-liner not accumulating scum and the inner pot having a rounded bottom, which is easier wipe clean 2. it has no "moisture catcher" to clean out 3. the inside pot has cool handles to lift out 4. there is a place to put the rice paddle (important!) 5. the rice paddle has nubs on it, with prevents rice from sticking to it. And, of course, it cooks brown rice very well! We're waiting to try the porridge setting - yum. We're completely happy with our purchase and wondered why we hesitated. (NB, All Zojirushi products we've tried have been superb, despite their generally higher prices.)

2-0 out of 5 stars Problems with altitude
I have purchased three NS-ZAC10 cookers within the last year. Two are being used by daughters living near sea level. They work perfectly. I use mine mostly at an altitude of 3,000ft and, at times, at an altitude of 7,500ft. The cooker works only adequately at 3,000 ft and poorly at the higher altitude.

I suspect something is wrong with the Fuzzi Logic programming, which should be able to sense the altitude by measuring the boiling point of water and extend cooking times accordingly. Fuzzi Logic is an incremental type of mathematical set theory in which the next step depends upon the success of the previous step. Not being able to cope with higher altitudes suggest a fault with the coding. And it spoils the general usefulness of the cooker.

Personally, I would welcome information from Zojirushi regarding how to adapt the NS-ZAC10 to high altitude cooking --- if indeed that is possible. I have no idea how to contact them. They don't appear to maintain a website.

Unless you live at sea level, don't waste your money. Buy a simple, inexpensive On/Off rice cooker where you can compensate for altitude by adding more liquid and extending the cooking time.

On the other hand, if you live near sea level, this cooker works well.

Since the first Rowenta iron in 1912, the company’s clothing-care products have been on the forefront of innovative technology. The 1600-watt Perfect Steam iron continues Rowenta’s exacting standards with top-shelf construction and truly helpful features. Designed to iron dry or with variable steam, the iron has fine-tunable settings that let you choose heat according to fabric type, then set the steam level. The Intra-Steam system pushes horizontal steam deep into fabric. The iron also steams vertically for hanging clothes and draperies. A steam-burst button lets you blast stubborn wrinkles, and a spray function spritzes fabric as you go. Equipped with LED indicator lights, the handle-mounted electronic temperature control indicates when the soleplate is ready, too hot, too cool, or in automatic shut-off mode. All controls are easy to set, sturdy in construction, and unlikely to slip.

The Perfect Steam comes with a platinum soleplate for effortless glide and incredible durability. It has a sleek teardrop shape, a full-length button channel, and an anti-drip design. Rowenta also equips the iron with three-way automatic shut-off: after 8 minutes if left vertically, 30 seconds if left horizontally, and 30 seconds if tipped over. Large and comfortable in the hand, the iron holds up to 13 ounces of water at a time in a translucent tank. The tank’s opening is among the cleverest on the market--a tidy lid pushes in for filling and releases for closure. The iron also comes with an anti-calc system to trap scale and deposits that could interfere with its performance. Measuring 12 by 5 by 6-3/4 inches, the Perfect Steam is made in Germany, and has a full one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

From the Manufacturer

The DX-9800 has been engineered around major technical innovations of the three core functions of an iron: heat, steam, and the soleplate. The Intra Steam system "pulses" the steam, creating the perfect cycle of steam and pressing. The Thermo Control system uses an electronic sensor that measures and maintains an even temperature in the soleplate.  The Platinium soleplate combines outstanding glide and non-stick, non-scratch properties. Its stainless steel core coated with ultra-thin silicate coating for a tougher, smoother surface with excellent non-stick and non-scratch properties. 

The Next Level in Irons

The revolutionary Intra Steam system forces pressurized steam deep into the garment, "pulsing" the steam at regular intervals for the perfect cycle of steam and pressing. The DX-9800 has a number of other features designed to make ironing easier and more successful. The iron’s Thermo Control is an advanced electronic thermostat for accurate control of soleplate temperature. Also, the Anti-Drip function helps prevent spitting and leaking when thermostat is on a low setting, while the Anti Calc function neutralizes harmful minerals, extending the life of the iron, and the burst of vertical steam feature provides effective wrinkle removal on all types of fabrics.

This iron, like all Rowenta irons, is ergonomically designed for comfort, with thumb grips and index finger grooves, and easily used by both left and right handed user,. Its new comfort handles is soft and resilient, with silicon rubber pads that provide support and relieve pressure at key contact points between hand and handle. The non-slip texture and pattern provides a firm grip for precision control.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best iron out there!
    I have tried many irons, most of which I passed on to my kids because they just didn't do the trick, spit water or soleplate got gunky. The Rowenta Perfect DX9800 is fantastic! I like the weight of it, and the steam penetration is the best out there...makes short work of wrinkles. I love it, wouldn't own any thing else! It's worth the extra money to have a quality iron.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Cadillac of Irons makes ironing fun!
    I'm a guy, and I have to admit, when my girlfriend convinced me to purchase a new iron to upgrade my small travel iron for my shirts, I was skeptical and felt that spending more money was just wasteful. But I had a coupon, someone I knew recommended the Rowenta brand, and so I purchased this thing.

    wow! It does a great job! Ironing is much easier and actually a little fun, as crazy as that sounds. This generates a ton of steam, it heats up very quickly and has a light to tell you when the it's ready for use. It is virtually spillproof as the there is a spring loaded top on the hole where you pour the water into the iron. It's heavy enough to provide some solid weight for the clothes, but not too heavy to make it difficult to move.

    If you're in the market for an iron, try this one out and you won't be sorry!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Rowenta leaks water
    I have owned 2 other rowentas loved them but I think the new tank design is not very good because water leaks out when you are ironing. I liked the other design better. However it does iron beautifully.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy it unless you can return it without penalty !!!
    LEAKS IMMEDIATELY FROM THE OPENING FOR THE WATER WHILE YOU IRON !!! Did anyone ever test it when it was being designed ? To make matters worse, I didn't buy it from Amazon, and can only return it for store credit minus restocking fee. And what am I going to do with this store credit ??? Buy another Rowenta iron ?

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm a new man
    Would you believe an Iron can change your life? This beauty have psychologically affected me tremendously, from someone who HATES ironing into a man who creates an occasion for ironing. One thing I would say is the cord is too short I had to buy an extension cord to use it comfortably. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful mixer and QUIET too!
I love to bake, and so when I registered for wedding gifts, I saw an ideal opportunity to own a quality mixer (as opposed to the many cheap versions I've used in the past). I liked the basic appearance and features of this KitchenAid version, and after reading reviews of it here, I added it to our registry. This little mixer is tough and makes baking a breeze. The beaters appear delicate, but despite being lightweight, they can handle heavy dough without having the batter stick. The best thing about this mixer is the noise level--I have NEVER heard a mixer that is this quiet, making it pleasant to use even at the highest speed. This is an excellent quality mixer at a reasonable price, and it should be able to meet all of your baking needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product!
Wow, I can't believe how great this mixer is. I bought it mainly to knead dough. The dough hooks worked just as well as a stand mixer that I had. They didn't hesitate at all. The mixer has a sensor inside that will compensate for the current to make sure it doesn't bog down. I kneaded on setting 4 for 2 minutes and the dough was better than when I used to do it by hand, and it was also better than with the Farberware stand mixer I had. I never got the impression that it was straining at all. It was also pretty quiet. It felt solid in my hand but not heavy enough to make it tired. It is a well-built product. The owner's manual has several recipes that look pretty good and even a few bread recipes.

I enthusiastically recommend this mixer to anyone who wants to knead dough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great American-made mixer!
This is a great product. When I needed a new mixer, I chose this one for two reasons: (1) It is made in the USA, thus preserving jobs for American workers; and (2) It included dough hooks for mixing yeast dough. This is a quality product, and I would like to make a suggestion for those reviewers who said the beaters do not stay in. Look at the stems of your beaters or dough hooks carefully, and you will see that one is just a tiny bit wider than the other one. Insert one in the right slot first until it clicks. If it doesn't click, it is the wrong one, and you'll have to insert the other one. The remaining beater or dough hook should then click easily in the other slot. The click locks it in place. Unfortunately, Kitchenaid does not mention this in their user manual. Tonight I followed the "Basic White Bread" recipe in the manual and made a perfect loaf of bread. There was no tedious hand kneading, only a very short mixing time. It is truly amazing. I will make bread and rolls much more often, now that I have this mixer.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
We registered for this mixer on our wedding registry. I was excited to be getting a mixer that cost more than $12. I was SO disappointed by it, that I used it twice and then gave it to my mom. That thing was so slow, and had no power. I was thinking that maybe we just got a bad one, but after reading some of these other reviews, I think it's just the way this mixer is. Anyway, I replaced this Kitchenaid Mixer with a $19 Sunbeam from Target, and LOVE that one! Lesson learned: Just because it costs more, doesn't mean it's better!

3-0 out of 5 stars I want to love it, but...
I love Kitchenaid products, usually. But this mixer is more of a stirer than a mixer. It'll mix fine, and has lots of torque, but to whip anything? Forget it. You better have all day, this mixer is just geared improperly, plain and simple. Possible fix would be the add on whisks, but why should I have to buy add-ons to make this mixer perform as it should? Look for mine on the refurb rack, it's going back. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ice cream? No problem!
A few simple steps: Turn on the machine and the refrigeration unit. Pour unfrozen ice cream or sorbet mixture into removable metal bucket. Insert stirring blade, set timer and start. Ice cream is ready in less than 30 minutes.

Refrigeration is more than adequate, moving parts are sturdy and well-designed, the price is 1/3 that of similar machines.

The unit is large but sleek. It looks fine on a countertop. Capacity is small, up to about 1 quart, but this isn't a real problem since it is so easy to make multiple runs.

No mechanical problems so far (2 months). I love my Gelato!

5-0 out of 5 stars Gaining weight has never been easier (or more delicious)!
I waited nearly two months for this, and when it finally came I was thinking it wouldn't see use until next summer. I was wrong. I've had to restrain myself to keep from making a batch a day! It's hard to imagine something much easier: mix the ice cream, pour it in, set the timer and go watch TV until it's done. The compressor is as quiet or quieter than the motor driving the paddle, so noise isn't a problem. The "manual" is really just a recipe book (with lots of delicious recipes), but what's to figure out? If I had to pick nits, I'd say that the slot to add ingredients mid-process is a bit skinny, and the fact that the freezer chamber lid can't be removed from the motor can make cleaning it a tad difficult.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent!!
This thing works great!!! Gets super cold and makes ice cream so fast.

The bucket and paddle detatch and are dish washer safe.

Top Notch

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use right out of the box.
UP: Can make multiple batches. Everything washes/sponges well.
My purpose for the ice cream maker was to make diabetic, no sugar, soy milk type recipes. I read the Amazon reviews, I scanned the internet for recipes, I'd gone bonkers trying to use the freeze cannister type ice cream maker. I was ready. When the machine came, the recipe book was more sophisticated, it used liquid sweetener. It takes more freezing time than the recipe indicates to get it cold enough, but if the beater is off and the machine is on, the ice cream will stay cold until you are ready to use it.
I did the recipes as written. My first and still our favorite is the maple syrup ice cream with pecans. I also use honey in this recipe. I have tried various other internet recipes and find that soy milk works best with pureed mango, chunk fruit added at end to prevent ice crystals. I have not made any custards using egg yolks, fat/colesterol,but am investigating a recipe using liquid lecithin. I've tried frozen yogurt, gelatin for thickener, and find that you either make a gelato/sorbet or make a rich cream ice cream. Inbetween takes alot of skill and practice. Plus,in a pinch, even strawberry jam and evaporated milk will make a great ice cream!
DOWN: Awful aluminum basket. I don't use aluminum anything, and would pay more for stainless steele. Everytime I scrape the ice cream out, I cringe. At first, there can be a buzzing sound if the beater insert unit is minutely off center, all you have to do is gently tweak right or left to perfectly align the beater head.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous for diabetics! Great service!
I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes shortly after purchasing this item. I was thrilled to find out that the custard ice cream recipes are high in protien and could be made with Splenda! (although the substitution makes the ice cream freeze harder) I have experimented with a variety of recipes and indulged my sweet tooth that way!
Our first machine we received was damaged in shipping, Amazon had a new machince out to us by FedEx within 2 days, and provided free shipping back for the damaged item. We were very pleased with the service. This machine is quiet, easy to use, and a MUCH better investment than one of the cheaper'll get your money's worth and never go back to store-bought junk. :) ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Worked great until it broke
This was a wonderful salad spinner for the several months it worked.Then it broke.In my kitchen, very few things break.The occasional wooden spatula after fifteen years of use is fine but things tend not to break unless I drop them.This is my second Oxo product that broke while I was using it (the other one was a knife--yes, a knife snapped in two while I was cutting).I still love my Oxo peeler but with two out of three of my Oxo products breaking, I'm done with Oxo for the most part.

1-0 out of 5 stars worked well until it exploded
I bought this item and used it for about 2 months, then It exploded while I was spinning a salad and was impossible to repair. I went on to buy a Tupperware salad spinner (green) and have been using it for four years with no problems at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Agree it's great ... but it has 1 huge problem
This has got to be the best salad spinner ever, on that point I agree with all the other rave reviews. But just try picking this unit up off a shelf when you have wet hands--or even dry hands!!!!!!! It's difficult!!!! Just wish they would put a small, very small, handle, ridge or inset on the bowl!!! Please!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars So USEFUL!!!
This is by far the most used thing in my kitchen... I'm not much of a cook, so I make a lot of salads.I used to cut my romaine and spread it all over the counter on paper towels to blot it dry.I got the salad spinner from a friend, and it has been awesome!The lettuce is practically dry to the touch after you spin it once or twice.This is definitely worth the price and more!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pulls perfect espressos shots every time
I was a little dubious about spending so much for a coffee machine, but this little coffee robot is like a new member of the family.When I go to Starbucks, I get a decent double espresso one out of every ten or so times.This wonder pulls them just right every time and fits under the cabinets.The smooth stainless steel exterior matches some other kitchen appliances and was a big deciding factor for me since I wanted a machine with some style.

The reconditioned one I received had no scratches or other problems, and seems to be running fine!

Frothing works great.The newer model has a swivil steam wand that can rotate in and out and not just left to right like this model AND an additional rack on the top cup warmer to keeps cups from falling off (not worth the additional cost-I never had a cup fall off).I save money every day by not buying a Venti from Starbucks since I can make a more consistent quality coffee myself.ENJOY! ...

The pasta can be enjoyed fresh or frozen or dried for later. Complete directions, cooking tips, and recipes are included, though cleaning the attachments can be a bit of a challenge, as they can't be washed in water, and any dried-on pasta particles must be removed with the included cleaning brush and toothpicks. --Marcie Bovetz ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Heavy duty, easy & fun to use, great pasta!
I decided to purchase this attachment instead of the other Kitchenaid pasta attachment (plates + food grinder) because I wanted to be able to make any kind of pasta: spinach, semolina, whole wheat, egg-free etc, and not be confined to a small number of recipes that were sure to work well with the plates. It has worked like a charm. Even the egg-free spinach pasta, which was very dry and crumbly to start, came out perfect.

The widest setting on the roller works to knead/roll the dough until its pliable enough to continue. Its amazing how such flaky dough can become so evenly mixed with minimal effort. From this point, its just a few more settings until you've got angel-hair thin dough. It is important to use the cutter before the ends of your dough dry out, lest they will clog the cutter.

Pasta is my favorite food, and this contraption makes it possible to make my own healthy, delicious pasta recipes at home, quickly!

5-0 out of 5 stars An Extra Set of Hands
Ya gotta love this three piece attachment set. The roller set is truly like having an extra set of hands. It not only does the cranking for you (vs hand cranking) but you feed the dough in from the top and gravity takes over pulling it through (vs pulling it through laterally on a hand crank machine). It really is like having another person helping you prepare the pasta dough.

The cutters work very well, too. I would encourage you to run at least two batches of dough through each set of cutters and throwing away the resultant noodles before actually using the cutters in making pasta to eat. This will get out the fine metal shavings in the cutters. From then on you're good to go. Also, I invested another $15 at Amazon for a simple wooden pasta rack. Well worth the money and much more elegant than hanging your noodles over the back of a chair. Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy and fun! (And delicious, too.)
I never imagined that putting together fresh homemade pasta would be so easy, but these roller attachments are wonderful. And on top of that, they're actually fun to use -- my husband was so interested in what I was doing that he ended up joining in and helping me roll out and cut the pasta dough. If I have any complaint, it's that I was a little surprised that the supplied booklet claims you need to boil fresh pasta for six minutes. Mine is ready in two minutes at most.

Don't stress about the "no washing in water" instruction -- pasta dough is so dry and non-sticky that the brush and a toothpick should be more than sufficient to get your attachments clean. I'm also happy to report that I didn't find any metal shavings in the "throw-away" dough I made, though it's probably a good idea to run a batch of test dough through anyhow to be on the safe side.


5-0 out of 5 stars I love it so far
UPS brought this heavy package 20 minutes ago. Eventhough I am female, I didn't read the instructions and I have fettucini drying as I write. I can't wait to taste it. It was so simple and fast. The 3 attachments are truly heavy duty.

I was looking for a crank type pasta maker when I stumbled accross this "attachment" option. I already own the big, expensive Kitchenaid mixer. Eventhough the attachments are more money than the "crank" things, I opted for this one and am glad that I don't have yet another "appliance" to store like that breadmaker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastico!
I got this as a gift, and I was really impressed with the quality of it. Even though I had no particular desire to make my own pasta, this set of gadgets was so gorgeously wrought that I just had to use them. Each one of the three attachments is a seriously heavy, all-metal mechanized marvel. The quality of craftsmanship easily eclipses that of the current Kitchen-Aid mixers themselves!

To my delight, I was making superb fettuccine in no time at all. The fact that the only manual labor involved is a little bit of kneading is simply amazing. I found speed 4 was the optimal one; slower and the dough was more likely to get bubbles in it.

I had the dirt problem with the first batch, so I just ran that through about a million times and then threw it away. All the subsequent batches came out flawlessly.

The pasta I made was lighter and smoother than any pasta I have made from dried or fresh store-bought pasta. The texture was very pleasing. More variety in the cutter attachments would be nice, and I'd gladly pay for more choices. That said, even with the existing shape choices, this product is superb. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The last BBQ Tool Set you'll ever need...
While a little intimidating when you first take it out of the box, once you get it unwrapped and get the secure, sturdy aluminum case snapped open you'll begin to admire both the simplicity and design of the Set.

I got mine as a wedding present, and I've already gotten a lot of quality use out of it. Most of the tools are long handled to give you good clearance from the heat, and the spatula is not only wide enough for the Big Burgers but it also has a sharpened edge to allow you to check "doneness" without having to reach for another tool.

The fork, knife, tongs, and basting brush are also well designed for their purposes and the Four "kebob" skewers are made out of solid, polished metal so the food slides right off. The eight corn picks are a nice touch, as are the salt and pepper set (they arrive empty, so fill them with the spice/rub of your choice), and for after-grill cleanup there's a nice and solid grill brush with spare head.

Everything fits securely in its own place either with elastic straps or with velcro attachments, so nothing clatters around when you move it from your kitchen, to your deck, to your tailgate party, to your...well, you get the idea. *grin*

West Bend has improved on the classic corn popper design by adding a motorized stirring rod which ensures that every single kernel pops, every time. In about five minutes, the Stir Crazy Popper produces up to 6 quarts of perfectly popped corn, using one tablespoon of oil per 1/4 cup corn. It stops automatically when it's done, so you don't have to worry about burned popcorn, and you can clean it with just a quick swipe of the sponge. For added flavor, place a bit of butter in the butter well to melt over the corn as it pops. The plastic cover doubles as a serving bowl, so when the cycle is done, just flip it over to enjoy popcorn that's guaranteed to be good to the last pop. --Larisa Lomacky Moore ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Stirring Recommendation!
I'm on my second one of these, having lost one in a move many years ago.

I've had a number of popcorn poppers 'cause I'm a true fan, whether unadorned popcorn or 'fancied up'. When the hot air poppers came out about 20 years ago I bought a couple of them, but they always seem to make chewy popcorn that'll stick in the back of your throat. I've got a mint-condition Mirro aluminum electric popper from the sixties and it'll burn corn in the bottom before you can turn around.

West Bend used to make this same type popper but without the stirrer. I had that one also, and it still left a fair number of kernels at the bottom.

The stirring rod is what makes the difference with this popper. Not only will it pop more kernels in ANY brand of popcorn, but it will pop far more with the less expensive brands like Jolly Time. It's typical to get no more than a tablespoon or less of unpopped kernels. The popcorn turns out perfectly done, from the earliest to the last popped. If you look at the photo, the disc on the top is a removable cover; under there is an indention with multiple holes. You can take butter or margarine and spread it around when you set the machine up. Then, as the machine starts popping, the steam melts the butter and it goes on the corn! Or, if you prefer buttering later, just leave the lid on. When the corn is popped, you simply flip the appliance over and the large dome becomes the serving bowl.

The dome and the disc on top have been through my dishwasher dozens of times without any problem. If I hand-wash it, it always feels a little greasy. The bottom, heating part of the appliance is nonstick; you simply wipe it out with a soapy dishrag or paper towel. Couldn't be easier.

This appliance is light in weight and fits fine in one of my overhead cabinets. For only a small amount of oil, it'll make six quarts of the best popcorn you can find! Plus, its tolerance to less-expensive non-gourmet corns means you'll spend less money. Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars The only way to make perfect popcorn
Aha!! Finally a chance to tell you about best popper ever. I won one at work in `81`. Had it for 15/16 years. Worked great. Rave reviews from friends, many requests. Love the stirring rod. Hardly ever an unpopped kernel... I use 3 tbsp oil to 1/2 cup corn-- the cheap stuff. Gives a buttery flavor, without using the holes on top, and pop with the lid off. When first one bit the dust (due to negligent cleaning) went immediately to K-mart for another ( still working) Now you can't find them in stores, or websites till went to Amazon. Another thing I do is I have a can with strainer and pour bacon grease in, refridge, and use it instead of oil. Try it--Yummy. I'm now buying one for my Mom and one for brother and family for Christmas. Hate microwave popcorn - dry and burn tasting. Hot air ones the same..
Stir Crazy is best popper (or small appliance available) also don't tighten the stirring rod down too tight - just snug.
Enjoy the movie --

5-0 out of 5 stars Tried & True... Best home machine out there!
I grew up with a Stir Crazy popcorn popper as a kid. I still have an original and it's over 20 years old! I did have to replace the lid once, due to dropping the old one. The remarks about the nonstick surface peeling off are true but not a big deal. I've never experienced any negative effects due to this! The use of the oil is akin to seasoning a cast iron pan.

It's gone in & out of fashion in my family over the years, but we still can't find anything that does a better job, short of a commercial popper. So many people out there are interested in faster, unattended popping. Part of the fun IS taking the time to relax and enjoy watching the Stir Crazy perform! How many kids will have fond memories of sitting in front of the microwave and watching a bag? Think about it!

I'll continue to use ours until it's life is over. I am also going to order a replacement, just in case it is no longer available for some reason in the future.

Buy it, Pop it, enjoy the show! You won't be sorry!

5-0 out of 5 stars This thing makes the best popcorn!!!
I love the taste of the popcorn that this makes! Of course, you have to add the fattening stuff to it by adding oil to the popcorn so it can cook the popcorn properly and not burn or scrape the nonstick bottom off, then also for the best taste, add the powdered popcorn flavorings(add it to the oil and kernals before cooking). But anything that tastes good is fattening, right?!? They do eventually wear out and you have to get a new one if you like them. Easy to clean. I remember buying one a very long time ago (like 7 years or so ago) for my stepdad and he is now in need of another one. But not too bad for the price to last that long with a lot use on it. I certainly recommend this for the best popcorn. If you prefer the less healthy, but better tasting popcorn! Stick with the air poppers if you eat healthier!

5-0 out of 5 stars This Is The Way To Make Popcorn!
West Bend's "Stir Crazy" is the way to make popcorn. In a few minutes the popcorn comes out light, with very little unpopped or burnt. With multiple batches the popping time drops. Butter can be placed in the top or butter oil can give the flavor. We have tried other methods, but none match up. This is the best! ... Read more

This versatile system forecasts local weather; automatically sets andupdates the time, day, and date; keeps track of the indoor temperature; andemploys a remote, wireless sensor to record the outdoor temperature up to 100feet away. For forecasting weather within 12 to 24 hours, the6-1/4-by-4-1/4-inch monitor employs a built-in electronic barometric-pressuresensor and then displays the upcoming weather with an icon (sunny, partly sunny,cloudy, rain/snow) on its backlit LCD screen. For keeping track of time, themonitor is equipped with a radio receiver tuned to the U.S. atomic clock; thisenables the monitor to maintain split-second accuracy by automaticallyadjusting, if necessary, to the atomic clock's signals six times every 24 hours.From those signals, the monitor also displays the date, the day, and the timezone for which the user has set the clock. Also, the clock automatically adjustsfor daylight saving time and for leap year. The monitor beams the time and theoutdoor temperature onto a wall or ceiling in large, red numerals for easyreadability. If the monitor is in battery-mode (four AA batteries included),pressing the clock's snooze bar will beam the data for five seconds. If themonitor is plugged into a wall socket with an AC adapter (included), theprojection will be available either for five seconds with the snooze bar orcontinuously if a continuous-beam control is set. The projection beam comes froma device mounted next to the clock. The device pivots so the beam can beprojected onto any surface, and a dial focuses the beam for clarity. You canalso choose to have the temperature displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.--Fred Brack ... Read more

Although there are some cool features on this clock, it doesn't do all that it should. I'll simply list the pros and cons and you can decide for yourself.

- you can instantly know the weather outside and the temperature inside.
- the forcast prediction and graphics are remarkably accurate.
- projection on ceiling is very cool at night - you can look straight up as you lie in bed and know the time.

- even though it plugs in, the clock runs on batteries. the plug is only for the projection part.
- the alarm wouldn't wake up the lightest sleeper - it's just a little beep like your microwave makes. it just makes them more often as you sleep through it.
- the projection doesn't work at all if any light is on in the room and it's really only usefull on a perpendicular surface - otherwise it's stretched and half out of focus.

So as a second clock and something neat to have, this is fine. Don't get it as your primary alarm clock if you want to make it to work on time and not get fired :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars ITS THE BEST BED SIDE CLOCK EVER !!!
The projection is awesome! The alarm starts quiet then gets loud enough to wake anyone (except the dead or the laziest). The weather forcasting works great never wrong. Knowing the time and outdoor temp as soon you open your eye's right on the ceiling or wall is wonderful! Never needs to be set I receive the signal fine and I live in northern rural Minnesota. Buy it you will love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!!
I had this for a year now, and I NEVER had a problem with it. *Knock wood*. It does what it says, and it is very accurate, and the weather forecaster is pretty acurate too. A must buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Too Little....
Love the clock but wish the buttons were a little less cumbersome - hard to manipulate with just one hand. Indoor temp. reads a little high. Perhaps the projector heats the internals. Other than that, the time and outdoor temp. on the ceiling is quite entertaining!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great idea; poor design
I bought this clock for my technophobic mother and she loves it. The display on the ceiling is ideal for her; she is severely near-sighted in one eye and almost blind in the other. She can see the display on the ceilng in the middle of the night without any problems. In addition to the display, she appreciates being able to see the temperature, both inside and out.

Another feature of this clock that is ideal for her is that the regular display is only lit when you want it to be lit. There are no glaring red numbers staring at you all night. When you want to see the time/temp, press the snooze button and the display lights for a few seconds.

Now for the negatives of this great little gadget. It is very lightweight and the buttons sit smoothly at the bottom of the clock. It is difficult to tell one button from another or to even push the buttons to set the alarm, view, etc. Raised braille like nobs on the buttons would be helpful as well as making the base wider so it would be more difficult to knock it over. Also, if the clock is running off battery, you have the option of displaying the time on the ceiling only when you press the snooze button. However, if you use the A/C adapter, you're choices are continuous display or no display. The slide switch that controls this is on the side of the clock and is difficult to find by feel.

Despite the few shortcomings of this clock, I still think it's wonderful and recommend it to anyone who is tired of squinting at glowing red dots to see what time it is; who wants to know the temperature both inside and out; and who always wants the correct time. ... Read more

This smaller version of George Foreman's famous "as seen on TV" Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine is perfect for preparing quick, low-fat meals for one or two people. The double-sided grill surface heats in less than five minutes to an even temperature perfect for grilling most foods. The high grill grooves and slight angle allow fat to run off the grill as food cooks, and the nonstick surface requires little or no additional fat for cooking. The plastic, grooved spatula works well to scrape off any bits that may have stuck to the surface.

Meats and fish are the obvious choices to take advantage of the Grilling Machine's fat-reduced grilling, but vegetables and tofu dogs work well too. The double-sided grill means food cooks twice as fast, leaves attractive grill marks, and generates surprisingly little smoke. --Julija Gelazis ... Read more


  • Interior wipes clean easily
  • 6-by-7-inch nonstick cooking surface

  • Includes dishwasher-safe plastic drip tray and spatula

5-0 out of 5 stars The George Foreman Grill really does "cut the fat" from food
This is easily the best "As Seen On TV" product ever made (I'd like to see Ronco top this marvelous machine). As I am writing this review, I am eating boneless skinless chicken breasts that were made on the George Foreman "Champ" Grill". They are so good that words cannot describe how good they are...just sprinkle some "Mrs. Dash 'Table Blend'" on the chicken breasts before you cook them, put them on the grill, and have a great chicken dinner (only other thing you have to do is find something to go along with the chicken [maybe some white rice]). Cleanup is so easy it's ridiculous! The nonstick surface allows you to clean the grill surface with a soft clean cloth or sponge (dampened with warm water, of course), and the drip tray can go in the dishwasher. Just yesterday I prepared some turkey burgers (from Wampler Foods) on the grill, and it is amazing how much fat will be drained from turkey burgers (even though turkey meat has less fat that ground beef [which is what hamburger patties are made of], it still has fat). The George Foreman Grill really does "cut the fat" from food!

5-0 out of 5 stars "As Seen on TV" and really works!!
I got my first George Foreman grill when I was in college and living in a dorm. It is a GREAT tool for students especially, because it allows you to make all sorts of chicken, steak, burgers and other food on a "grill" right from your dorm room (or dorm kitchen). It really is a lifesaver!

I'm out of college now, and I bought the bigger version of the George Foreman grill! It's GREAT about cutting the fat, as most of the grease drains off in to an easy to clean plastic container. The plastic container can go in the dishwasher, and the grill itself has a really good nonstick surface which cleans easily with a damp sponge or rag.

It also cooks pretty fast, quicker than a conventional grill I think. I cook a few chicken breasts on it in about 10-15 minutes (depending on how big they are), and it heats up super fast - so no worrying about charcoal and starting fires! It's insanely easy to use, teenagers and slightly younger kids could probably use it with no problem. I highly recommend this grill - it's worth every cent!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great grill, wish I had a larger version
I have used this machine a couple dozen times now, and with great success. Fish, burgers, egglplant, greenbeans, chicken breast...
-- Meat, cooked from both sides, is done very quickly (Ignore the hamburger packaging that tells you to cook for ten minutes)
-- You'll enjoy watching the excess fat drip into the small drip-tray instead of sticking to a metal cooking pot that you'd have to scrub clean later.
-- Eggplant came out soft and delicious. Green beans were crispy and juicy.
-- There are no temperature settings. There is not even an on/off switch. Plug it in to pre-heat & cook, unplug it when you're finished. The only thing you need to control is the timer on your microwave. (I overcooked tuna steaks when I first got this grill, so that they were a little dry. Since then, I have learned to shorten the cooking time).
-- Cleanup: the best part. Clean with a wet paper towel or damp sponge. Especially easy while still warm. Use NO abrasives. (I use nothing other than the water that dampens the paper towel.
-- Smoke: Yes, there is a bit of smoke and steam that escapes, especially when I'm cooking beef & I lift the grilltop to add more seasoning. I usually grill by the window, so it's not a problem.
-- Size: the one drawback. If you're cooking for two, it's not easy to cram more than hamburger patty on this thing. Consider a larger one.
-- Price: note that there's a special shipping fee. The total price was still lower than that offered at my local store, though.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst for your money
You have to chop up food to a tiny portion. You can't closed the lid even if you only have a small amount of food on this grill, and you can cook a better tasting food on your frying pan then on this grill. It does get some fat out but not all. The drip catching tray is very small, so you may have to move it to adjust it. The plastic cheap looking scrapter does really nothing to get the food off. I ended up taking mine back to the store. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!

I dont cook. Boiling water is a major project for me. Therefore the george foreman grill has been a real Godsend. I love my cheeseburgers and was forced to take whatever the fastfood restaurants were dishing out. Now i have CHOICE in what level of fat is in my cheeseburgers, thanks to the george foreman grill. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Kindest cut for your bucks
After a year of researching knives and about 10 years struggling with a bad-quality set, I settled on the Calphalon 15-piece for a few reasons...

*The collection included in this set is comprehensive and sufficient, especially the fact that it includes the steak knives and a scissors.
*You get the "full tang" construction of expensive brands like Henckels and Wusthoff but without the price
*The handle construction is more sealed off and sturdy than the one Wusthoff knife I own, which has rivets in the handle that rust!
*The blades are strong and sharp, and cleanup is easy.
*The labels on the ends of each knife are so helpful--what a great idea!

I am very happy with this set, although I do wish the block had a few more slots. It only fits the knives in the main collection plus three steak knives. They are quite heavy, so do take care when wielding one. Nonetheless, good price, good quality, and great looks!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good value
I finally grew out of my cheap kitchen knife set as my cooking frequency and skills have increased. I looked around at Henckel's and others, and even bought some single pieces. Everyone advises to get German steel, full tang, and a riveted handle. Well, unless you are hung up on the rivets, this is the set. The price is excellent. The heft is great, and the knives fit my large (male) hands very well. After dealing with a "starter" set it's like I've moved on to a whole new level of enjoyment in cooking. As far as the rivets, I noticed that one of the high-end Henckel's (I think 4) doesn't have rivets either. Since purchasing this set, I have also bought the boning knife separately and have found this to be a nice addition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Set For the $$$
I just bought my first set of Calphalon Contemporary cutlery and wow what a difference between this set and some other sets I've owned. The edges are incredibly sharp and the labeling concept is truly an ingenious idea. Not to mention the overall design of the product is fantastic. Design, balance, comfort, and a lifetime warranty for half the cost, how can you go wrong? I've owned lesser sets of cutlery before that have cost me far more money. I'm sold on Calphalon's latest line of cutlery and I know I'll never buy any other brand again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent set for the serious beginner
Excellent set for the serious beginner/advanced chef. Has all the blades you could think of and you just have to pick up the 6 inch chef or the 7 inch santoku to complete this set. Other blades are also available as well. Slices like a dream even under heavy use. Overall this should be your second set. Still chopping and slicing...

5-0 out of 5 stars A great set
I recieved a set of these knives for Christmas this year, and they're a real joy to work with. After working with a set of ill suited cheap Farberware knives that never cut well to begin with and couldn't be sharpened, I was (and still am) amazed how quickly these can get any task done, and how easy it is to make accurate cuts. The curving of the handle seen in the large knife in photo (on all handles too!) is a great feature to make grip easier, and they have a good weight to them without being too heavy and cumbersome. Just be sure you hand wash these to keep them in top condition :) ... Read more

Omelets, whether firm country-style or tender French, must be cooked quickly and folded in the pan. A classic omelet pan, therefore, is thick-bottomed for rapid, even heating and shallow with steeply sloped sides so omelets can be rolled easily against them. This pan qualifies on all counts, and it's ideal for saut&eacute;ing and searing, also. Use only plastic, nylon, and wooden utensils on its nonstick cooking surface. The pan is anodized for hardness. For that no-nonsense, commercial-kitchen look, Calphalon's Professional Nonstick II cookware wears a matte finish. Rolled stainless-steel handles are double-riveted for durability and balance, and stay cool on stovetops. Holes in the handles facilitate hanging on a hook or peg. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, pans cook without hot spots or warping. Lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A good deal on a quality nonstick pan...
This is a high-end nonstick pan that performs extremely well. It heats up quickly and evenly with its thick aluminum bottom, and has a handle that stays cool, unlike regular Calphalon pans. The nonstick performance has been adequate in the 2 years that I have had the pan, and I am secure in the knowledge that Calphalon offers a Lifetime Warranty and has a good reputation for sticking by it. The only drawback is that you can not put it in the dishwasher, but that is not a big deal because the pan is usually easy to clean. Food only sticks when I impatiently use too high of a heat. Now I stick to the directions, which say you should never go beyond medium-high, and preferably medium.

I use the pan most often for sauteing and carmelizing onions and garlic, and it does an excellent job at both. I also have the nonstick grill pan, which is also a fine pan, for meat. All in all, this makes a fine addition to a standard Calphalon set. The nonstick surface is most valuable when pan-frying, and I prefer the standard hard-anodized surface (which can take metal utensils, unlike the nonstick) for most other cooking tasks.

Since my initial review of this product, I've used it extensively. FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE BUY THE CALPHALON 10" COMMERCIAL NONSTICK OMELET PAN!! The aluminum part of the pan is impressive--heats fast and evenly. You can even brown meats and poultry in it on only moderate heat settings. The nonstick coating is, regretfully, inferior. Other reviews have remarked on this pan's "two-layer" nonstick coating and its lack of durability and early failure in use compared to the "three-layer" nonstick Calphalon uses on its Commercial line. The difference in the quality of the two nonsticks is even plainly visible upon sight: the three-layer is much less porous and more dense. Indeed, I am already having problems with foods sticking on this two-layer nonstick coating after only a few months in use. GO WITH THE THREE-LAYER COMMERICAL LINE!! It's only $3 or $4 dollars more than this one, and worth every cent! On the plus side, this item arrived two days in advance of the Amazon estimated delivery date. On the down side, it was not what I expected. It's packaged in a plain, brown cardboard box with no Calphalon brand identifying marks on it. There was no warranty or other literature packed with it. And, it was made in China--rather than Ohio as I thought it would be. Fortunately, I have other Calphalon products so I know the temperature, utensil and cleaning limitations. To the uninitiated--given the lack of warranty or use and care info--they might stick it in a dishwasher or use abrasive cleaners or non-synthetic utensils and void the supposed lifetime warranty ("supposed" as the Amazon description says this, though nothing packed with the product does). It seems a good quality product for the $14.99 Amazon price. However, I really wish Amazon would be more conscientious about showing a product's country of origin or manufacture. That way, purchasers can decide beforehand whether they wish to buy items "outsourced" by U.S. companies to be made in foreign countries where labor is cheaper. Or, if they want to keep their money in the USA by only purchasing products from U.S. manufacturers who actually make their items here.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like it!
I like this pan very much. It is my first piece of Calphalon and I was impressed with it immediately. I used it in the oven to cook a pineapple upside down cake and the cake slid out beautifully. I was able to make an omelet with only one egg and it browned nicely. The handle did not get hot on the stovetop and the pan did not scratch or leave marks on my flat-top range. (If you have carpal tunnel, it would be a bit too heavy for your comfort).

4-0 out of 5 stars Very, very good, but not excellent
This is a very, very good non-stick pan. It does its job every day. It is heavy enough to spread the heat eavenly.
I put it in the dishwasher every day (I am not sure why it is not recommended to put it in the dishwasher, so far I had no problem with it).

It is still not excellent, because as most other non-stick pan, it progressively gets back due to the little particles of food that stick to it. I see that in a couple of years I'll have to buy a new one. Oh well. aren't they all like that?

5-0 out of 5 stars This Is Authentic!
I have contacted Calphalon and told them about this item and they have written me back that this is indeed their product. I love mine and it really didn't matter....but I wanted to put this issue to rest. GREAT pan at a GREAT price! ... Read more

The bestseller among All-Clad's renowned cookware collections, the Stainless line provides serious and professional cooks all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between layers of stainless steel is a thick core of pure aluminum that spreads heat evenly across the bottoms of pots and pans and all the way up the sides. The interior is highly polished 18/10 stainless steel, so it's stick-resistant as well as stain- and corrosion-resistant. The exterior is gleaming, magnetic stainless steel that works on induction as well as conventional stovetops, and, with care, remains beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.

This nine-piece set of Stainless cookware consists of a 10-inch fry pan, a 2-quart covered saucepan with lid, a 3-quart covered sauté pan, a 3-quart covered casserole pan, and a 6-quart covered stockpot. Polished 18/10 stainless-steel pan and lid handles are riveted for strength and grooved on the top for comfort. The pans' long handles (holed for hanging on hooks or pegs) stay cool on the stovetop but won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack

Features and Benefits
All-Clad pans with a stainless interior cooking surface are oven-safe up to 500 degrees. All-Clad pans with a non-stick cooking surface are oven-safe up to 400 degrees, but should not be used under the broiler. We recommend using a low to medium temperature when cooking with All-Clad. Higher heats are not necessary and may cause discoloration (see cleaning instructions below). Other features include:

  • Beautifully polished, magnetic stainless exterior layer.
  • Pure aluminum core that not only covers the bottom of the pan but also extends up the sides. This allows for great heat conductivity as well as an even heat distribution so you won’t have "hot spots" when cooking.
  • Stainless-steel interior layer/cooking surface.
  • Long, polished stainless, stay-cool handles.
  • Sturdy, non-corrosive stainless-steel rivets won't react with foods.
  • Polished stainless-steel lids fit evenly with the pan’s edges to seal in flavor of your foods.
  • The All-Clad Stainless collection is compatible with an induction stovetop (with the exception of a few pieces) in addition to gas and electric stovetops.
  • The Stainless collection is dishwasher-safe, excluding pieces with a nonstick cooking surface.

From date of purchase, All-Clad guarantees to repair or replace any item found defective in material, construction or workmanship under normal use and following care instructions. This excludes damage from misuse or abuse. Minor imperfections and slight color variations are normal.

Cleaning Instructions
For daily cleaning, warm soapy water is sufficient. Clean your All-Clad thoroughly after each use. Food films left of the pan may cause discoloration and sticking. To get rid of stuck-on food or discoloration and stains from using too high of a heat, we recommend cleaning your All-Clad with a product called Bar Keeper’s Friend. To use the Bar Keeper’s Friend, simply use a soft cloth or sponge and water and make into a soupy paste. This can be used on the interior, as well as the exterior of your All-Clad (excluding the Cop-R-Chef). The Bar Keeper’s Friend can also be used on the exterior of the All-Clad Stainless collection, LTD collection, and MC2 collection. For cleaning of the Cop-R-Chef exterior, simply use a brass/copper cleaner. If your water has a high iron content, you may notice a rusty discoloration. Use Bar Keeper’s Friend to remove it.

All-Clad Stainless Selection
In recent years, a professional-size 14-inch fry pan was added to the Stainless fry pan assortment, as well as several popular specialty pans, including: the small-size petite brasier with a dome-shaped lid; petite roti roasting pan; and the beautiful, large-capacity Dutch oven and French oven oval roasting pan with roasting rack. Both of these one-pot comfort food specialty pans comes with All-Clad’s popular high dome-shaped lid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Two things make a kitchen...good knives and good pots/pans
For a good even heat, excellent quality of workmanship, and a dependable name, I can't think of anything better than All-Clad. For years, I used cheap cookware store non-stick skillets and hand-me-down pots and pans my mother used when she first got married. What a difference it makes.

Most cookware is way too thin, which leaves you with hotspots. For years, I would make up for this by using a cast iron "defuser" to even out the heat and keep the direct flame off the bottom of the pan. I don't have to do this any more. With the triple-layering, you get even heating, regardless of whether it's the middle of the pan or the outer edge.

Personally, I like the stainless. MC2 wasn't around when I bought mine, and I might have chosen that because of the low-maintanace exterior, but I'm not regretting it either. I don't have to be worrying about scratching through the coating with it and it cleans up easy enough with a little water and even less elbow grease.

Cooking will always be a chore, even if you enjoy the act in itself, if you never invest in good cookware and good knives. This is the first step on at least one of those. You might also wish to add a double-boiler, the steamer insert and a 1 qt. saucier; and maybe a larger stock pot (12 qt. if you can afford it), but this really lets you hit the ground running.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cookware
I bought this set back in January and must admit, it's gotten a lot of compliments from friends and neighbors. As with anything stainless steel, which is apparently all the rage these days, the look and feel (heavy!) of this cookware is impressive.

The most impressive thing I've noticed so far is the even temperature control throughout all of the pieces I purchased and have used so far. Even when boiling water, you can see at the bottom of the pot that the heat is being distributed evenly, which is a major downfall of most other cookware.

The first downside is that they are, in my experience, a PAIN to clean. Following the manufacturers recommendation to NOT put them in the dishwasher, I have washed them by hand after every use. I highly recommend washing them IMMEDIATELY after use to avoid having to spend a lot of time getting them clean.

The other downside is that I think these pots and pans will work much better on gas cooktops than on radiant cooktops. Fortunately, I'll have gas cooktops again in a few months, but really feel that buyers with radiant cooktops should test out a piece or two before commiting to the whole set.

Other than those two minor downsides, this is a "keep-for-life" set of pots and pans, and well worth the investment. Check out the rest of the All Clad stainless series for other great pieces (highly recommend the omelette pan to complete this set in particular).

5-0 out of 5 stars Cookware that Adds a High to Cooking Experience
I just got my 9-piece stainless set of All Clad Cookware, and I LOVE IT!!!

It's kind of like the difference between cooking in a shack and cooking in a castle. (I have a regular house) but I am so excited when I cook with this cookware - it was definitely not expected even from seeing the pictures of it and reading the other reviews.

I am 50 years old, and no other cookware has ever made me chuckle and go yee-hahhh! when I used it. The food tastes great in it (much better than same food cooked in Revere Ware or Tefal) and it is SO easy to clean. I did not buy the non-stick kind - but it cleans up just as easily as non-stick cookware. The food tastes like you get in a fine restaurant - clean, crisp - it has integrity and character. Does not taste like it's been beaten up or left in the pan too long.

This cookware retains heat so well, that when you rinse it under warm or hot water after cooking with it, (even though it starts out cold) - it stays warm afterwards for a long time - in the dish drainer while it's drying!

I have been getting food magazines for years. I usually read the recipes and look at the pictures. Now I actually look forward to trying the recipes in real life. If you have ever loved cooking in the past or love it now - you'll love these pans, and they'll love you too - (Now what other pans could you say that about!?)

I recommend All-Clad. I work at a cooking school and everything we use is either All-Clad or Le Creuset. I have cooked with Jeremiah Tower, James Peterson, Johnny Carabba, Damian Mandola, Guiliano Bugialli, Ann Willan, Stephan Pyles, Susanna Trilling, David Rosengarten, Crescent Dragonwagon, Peter Reinhart, Robert McGrath, Bill and Cheryl Jamison, Aaron Sanchez, Rosemary Barron, Stan Frankenthaler, Michael DeGrigrio, Natalie Dupree, Gordon Hammersley, John Demers, Kathleen Dalaemens, Mark Bittman, Rosemary Barron, Mary Cech, Diane Morgan, Jennifer Bushman, Molly Stevens and a whole lot of other chefs. All comments about All-Clad have always been positive.

When it came time to upgrade from the Calphalon Commercial Nonstick set that I have at home, I considered All-Clad, Mauviel Professional and Demeyere Sirocco. I chose All-Clad because it is a good and inexpensive compared to other cookware in its class. I have this set along with a 12" Nonstick frypan. I also have 9 pieces of Le Creuset. All-Clad skillets and saucepans are awesome. If you are making an omlette, use an All-Clad nonstick frypan. All-Clad does heat up very fast; however, it cooks very evenly. Buy All-Clad and you will never have to upgrade. Almost every chef on TV uses All-Clad and Le Creuset.

BTW: Zojirushi makes the best bread machines and rice cookers. Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart make the best of the other appliances. Wüsthof, Henckels, Global, Boker and Kyocera make really good knives. Use Ateco for piping bags and tips. Use Wilton for baking pans. I would also recommend two Silpats or Exopats and two half sheet pans if you like to make cookies.

5-0 out of 5 stars For those who enjoy cooking
What is with the people who bemoan the fact that this cookware is not non-stick coated? I enjoy driving; I drive stick. I enjoy cooking; I don't use non-stick much. If you want to cook merely to get some mildly palatable food onto a plate and into the family, and want to expend as little effort as possible cleaning up afterward, then you should best look elsewhere. All-Clad stainless is not designed for the harried individual seeking the quick and easy cooking solution. If you take pleasure in crafting fine food with fine cookware that provides control and consistency, then look no further. Yes, the cost is a bit more effort afterward. The good things in life don't come cheaply or easily. A word of advice though: use Bar Keeper's Friend or Bon Ami to clean up. It makes cleaning so very much easier. The difference versus regular soap is night and day. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars works but not what I expected
I also was disapointed with the product but maybe I expected too much. It does seem to perform an adequate job of getting out those wrinkles around the knees by pressing a pair of pants from the bottom of the pockets down to the cuff. I am 6-4 so it appears that the machine might cover more area on a shorter pair of pant. But if you're expecting to never iron your slacks again forget it. It does not touch the pockets or butt area. But then looking at the machine I now realize it was never meant to do that anyway. I was hoping to discove a secret device to make my life easier and me look better. Instead I have a curiosity that I'm not so sure I want to show my friends.

5-0 out of 5 stars Corby performs Perfect!
This product does everything it says it does. A few wrote in about not ironing in the waist's not designed to. It's also not supposed to get real hot, hence- it's a low-heat iron, using pressure, not the temperature of the sun, to take out the wrinkles. Also by doing so, I've noticed that many of my newer slacks are not being as worn thin as quickly. Perhaps I just iron too hard.
I use my press everyday. About 30 minutes before I go to bed, I put in a pair of slacks, let the press perform its magic and presto, my pants are ready to go for the morning.
Does this totally replace ones iron? Of course not.
If you're looking to never have to iron again, get a maid.
If your looking for a less expensive way of getting your trousers looking fresh for work, rather than spending mucho dinero at the dry cleaners, buy a Corby.
The Corby performs better than I expected. It's great!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent device that saves money
I have used mine for over a year and have saved way over the cost of the machine. Since I wear dress slacks every day the presser keeps me from having to take slacks back after one use. I get two wears out of my slacks now as long as I hang them up. The machine isn't a mircale worker but does exactly what I need and what it promised.

3-0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure I see the point
I bought this, thinking I could replace my current suit hangar for overnight. It did, indeed, replace my other suit hanger, but it heats up (barely) and while it does seems to get rid of some wrinkles, its nearly impossible to hang the pants correctly to not add other wrinkles.

5-0 out of 5 stars I could not do without it
I have had one for years and would not be without it. I get the best results by putting my trousers in when I retire for the night and take them out in the morning. That way the crease is super an I either wear them the next morning or put them in the wardrobe for another day. They have been made in England since 1930's and my father had one before me. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great set for a new kitchen
Several years ago, I purchased this set as a housewarming gift for a friend, who raved about them so much that I ended up buying a set for myself. As an impoverished college student at the time, my selection really came down to the price being right. Fortunately, the knives were right, too. I still use these knives every day, 4.5 years later, often mistreating them, with no ill effects. Now that I'm ready to move on to one of the premiere lines, I will hand these down to a younger sibling, as they still have numerous years of use left in them.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the money... you can't go wrong!!
We purchased these knives...and think they've been worth every penny. They're sharp, comfortable to grip, aesthetically appealing, and come in a nice assortment. Certain knives like the Chef's knife and the table/steak knives have become the proverbial 'work horse' of the set while the tomato knife hasn't really seen the light of day since it left the box. The polypropylene handles are capable of withstanding high temperatures and, because of their nature, do not harbor bacteria like some sets that contain rivets or those with wooden handles.

While this is a great set, it is not a high-end set, so you may want to look elsewhere if that's what you're after. None of the knives have a full-tang (where the steel goes all the way through the handle) or rivets. The handles are plastic. Also, the steel is from Japan (if I'm not mistaken) instead of Germany and boy, do the Germans know how to make steel!

So, dear friends, if you're looking for a set that you can pass on to your children and your children's children then you should indeed move up the Henckels line or look into Cutco (my favorites) or another high-end set. If you're looking to buy a good, inexpensive set that looks great and is every bit as functional, then look no more!

Also, consider looking into a pair of kitchen shears... they're indespensible!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great knife for it priced
This is a very great set knife for its value! I heard Henckels made great knife but very priced. I am not a professonal who needed a expensive knife so this set will do it. It helped me so much when I cook, also I love how it comes with the knife holder. Only thing I don't like about this set it's maybe water stain gets on the knife and my roommate keep on using my knife!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Henckels should be Ashamed
This product does not live up to Henckels reputation. The quality is inferior and completely not what I expected. The knives are unbalanced and flimsy. The handles are too small to provide adequate support for the blade.

5-0 out of 5 stars So sharp my husband cut off half his finger the first time!
Really sharp. I mean, really sharp! If you're used to dull knives, be prepared. These are sharp. They'll slice through anything- frozen food, fresh tomatoes, my poor cutting board, and that bouquet of flowers that you need to trim the stems on. They work great. This company is great, and these knives are amazing, even besides the price. Love 'em. ... Read more
