With the Platinum Force carpet extractor from Dirt Devil,you don't have to settle for cleaning just the surface of your carpet.Dirt Devil's design ensures that cleaning solution gets deep into thenap of the carpet and then back out just as thoroughly. The power ofthe machine lies in its two motorized brush heads--which rotate inopposite directions to clean carpet fibers on all sides--and itspowerful dual suction nozzles that get floors clean and dry quickly.The one-gallon capacity of the clean-water tank, combined with theseparate shampoo tank, means you don't have to refill often or guess atcorrect solution mixing. Plus, you can switch off the shampoo, for aplain water rinse, if you choose. The ample dirty-water tank isconveniently see-through and easy to carry and empty. Fingertipcontrols allow easy monitoring of power, solution release, and brushroll rotation. Dirt Devil's wishbone construction makes the machineeasy to maneuver, while the 25-foot power cord and removable tool caddygive you versatility and range. Converting to hose-cleaning is easy,thanks to a solution trigger on the hose handle and an upholsteryattachment. Quick-release cord hooks and a foot-pedal handle releaseadd to overall convenience. Though the Platinum Force is no runt--itsfootprint measures 12-by-19-inches-it's well worth its storage space.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

  • Fingertip controls for power switch, brushroll, and solution

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
I purchased this item in August of 2002 to maintain the look of our plush carpeting. After the first use alone, I was amazed at the difference in the carpet. Even more amazing is how dirty the water was after use.

I feel the result is comparable to that of a professional carpet cleaning, but obviously takes longer than the pros. However, at least when you are done, you have something to show for your money (It will pay for itself in two carpet cleanings compared to a professional).

This definitely beats renting machines such as a "Rug Doctor." The tank sizes, cleaning solution tank, and dirty water tank are all comparable. However, the Dirt Devil has a rinse option and the changing of the water and cleaning solution is more user friendly. When I was done cleaning, it took less than five minutes to clean up. A rental machine is a hassle anyway with the paperwork, hauling to and from, and the limited time use. Using this comparison, the Dirt Devil is the best choice hands down.

Like any product, it isn't perfect....it is somewhat heavy and takes some strength (on plush carpets - it may be easier on different carpeting). After awhile, holding down the button for a long period of time can start to make your finger ache. It can get cumbersome changing the water if you plan on doing the entire carpet, but you would have this anyway if you were renting one. These are only minor issues and the benefit of the machine makes it well worth it.

I purchased mine right here at Amazon.com. Amazon is my recommendation and it only took a week to get. This isn't one of those items that you need to have the next day. It was packaged well and looked great out of the box.

Bottom line - it cleans the carpets great, the price is right, and you can't go wrong with the Dirt Devil name. I give it the highest recommendation.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Efficient, Well Designed Machine!
I am so glad that Amazon has customer reviews! The reviews on this machine really helped me make my decision to buy it:

My family has bought at least 2 carpet cleaners in the past 5 years and neither of them was able to clean the carpet let alone suction the dirty water efficiently. Because we had not found the right machine, we resorted to renting those big clunky ones from the supermarket- but not anymore!

I have never bought a large Dirt Devil product before this, only the small hand held type. But I am very, very pleased with this machine. It is very efficient and well designed! The power cord is long. One big plus was that the handle can drop 90 degrees(if you are too lazy to move the table, you can lower the handle as low as the floor). Even my vacuum cleaner can't do that! (I have a Eureka Whirlwind Vacuum, which is a really excellent vacuum cleaner and a must if you own animals. We have more than 5 cats in the house). But not even the vacuum can get everything, which is why you should buy this carpet cleaner.

One small draw back was the way the tools attach. Somehow the tool attachment does not lock very well (the prong is not long enough?) and sometimes falls off if you step too far away from the machine. However, the tools do work very well otherwise. The suction is strong and the hose is pretty long. I used it on my computer chair and it worked great! I love the tools!

This machine totally met my requirements. I had been researching the Hoover, but those machines cost twice as much! I highly recommend the Dirt Devil Platinum Force! I bought it here at Amazon and got free shipping. It came in the original Dirt Devil box and was packed well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Starts - For the Price!
Great product, excellent price. Not much else in this price range to rival the quality, features and performance of this Dirt Devil carpet cleaner.

Okay the name is kind of cheesy. My wife laughed out loud after the UPS guy dropped off the box. But after I cleaned our living room carpet last night it is I who have the last laugh, Ahahahahah!!!

Seriously, I believe one of the most under appreciated feature of this carpet cleaner is the separate soap tank and the ability to switch off the soap at the flick of a switch. So on one pass I am shampooing, and the next rinsing. No need to measure and mix the soap, just fill and use.

I was really looking to get a carpet steamer, but something that another reviewer mentioned made perfect sense: just fill the water tank with hot water, it'll be at least as hot as the water from the steamers.

The brush is soft, but definitely works. A few passes over tough stains and everything comes right out. About the only real complaint I have is that the suction doesn't seem to be all that great. I used 2 tanks of water but only extrated about 1/2 tank of it back, so that's a 25% retrieval ratio. I was hoping for closer to 50%. But the carpet is clean and I am really happy with the results. After one night of drying the carpet is only very slightly damp. It is a heavy piece of equipment and dragging it across carpet is definitely a chore.

5-0 out of 5 stars Platimum Force Carpet Cleaner
What a great machine. It was simple to operate and putting together was a breeze. However I had a hard time finding the bolts and nuts,( they are on the inside of the handle). Simple to use and got alot of dirt out of my carpet I was amazed. I ordered it from amazon got free shipping which was great. I placed my order on the 31st of May and they told me it would take til the 7th for it to come. It was sitting at my door on the 3rd. The directions were simple and it was easier to move around then a rental machine. I did an 18x24' area of carpet in less then an hour. I like the fact that it has separate switches for the shampoo and separate containers for each so you don't have to mix the shampoo. There are only two things that I may have issues with. I can't locate the shampoo that is recommended to use, except on the internet, ace hardware says they carry this product but went to three and they didn't have it. However it appears that I can have it shipped free to the ace close to my house. The other thing is the attachment hose for stairs and furniture, it is in the way, but can be removed completely. It will be stored. I was suprised how quiet the machine was. My vac is louder then this system. It really did a good job cleaning my carpet and picked up most of the water out of the carpet. Great job Royal on this product. I will recommend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars poor quality
We have had this unit for about one year. We have found the seal around the base of the water reservoir leaks/falls out. the tool/floor lever selector has worn out/broken. We need to wedge a spoon under the lever to keep the Vac from flipping to the tools position when trying to use as an upright. It is impossible to clean inside the components. Would not recommend. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

When you first hear of the philosophy behind Austrian glassmaker Riedel and its Vinum line of machine-made full-crystal stemware, you can be forgiven for raising your eyebrows higher than prices of white Burgundy. The tongue is divided into four zones, each recognizing either sweetness, bitterness, saltiness, or acidity and that by matching the size and shape of the glass to specific wines, their sensory attributes can be enhanced? Fortunately, with the Riedel Vinum series Chardonnay glass, the company has put its Montrachet where its mouth is and come up with a design to please not only Chardophiles, but also fans of Chenin, Viognier, the Pinot brothers--Gris and Blanc--even noble rotters from Sauternes. A Pacific Northwest Chard tasted in both the Riedel and what was previously thought to be "the good crystal" revealed a balanced acidic brightness in the former and a sort of boozy flabbiness in the latter. With its medium-height bowl and tapered opening, the Vinum Chardonnay glass almost forces you to purse your lips, directing the wine to the mid-tongue's acid receptors and thereby balancing the wine's fruit and oak. --Tony Mason ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for white wine lovers
This was one of the first Riedel glasses I bought. I've done many, many tests on how wine tastes differently in various glass options and in different situations. Riedel is one of the tests that is easy for even beginning drinkers to see the difference in. The flavor is *amazingly* different when you compare the exact same wine in a Riedel glass vs normal wine glasses.

Even if you buy inexpensive wines, you will get much more enjoyment out of them with this glassware compared to other options. If you are buying mid-range wines, the difference will blow you away. Think of the Riedel glass as allowing you to see what the wine in your bottle *really* was meant to taste like.

This is a great first glass for white wine drinkers to buy, because it is fantastic for Chardonnays of all price ranges. In addition, you can use the Chardonnay glass for a number of other white wine types, and find it greatly enhances the flavor for them all. If you're a white wine fan, definitely give these a try!

5-0 out of 5 stars Does Taste and Smell Different
It is clear to me that these glasses do make a real difference. They make a difference in smell, taste and touch. Seeing that much of wine tasting IS the smell (not just when smelling, but also when drinking), it is no surprise that a different smell leads to a different "taste".

As for taste, when drinking, this type of glass does flow the wine more directly on the tongue, which also leads to a different initial taste (which is one reason to move the wine around). However, the initial taste is more pronounced on the drinking experience.

The fine lip is nice -- not too thin so that you worry about chipping it and swallowing glass pieces, like some of our fine crystal, and not so wide that you think you are biting on a block of wood. The texture is nice, too.

However, I find it harder to swish the wine in these glasses. They seem a bit top-heavy when swishing (but are finely balanced for drinking). It has an advantage of rising on the glass walls and leaving tears for analysis, but I would rather have a more balanced swish so that I can smell it better.

We use a mix of glass types and, depending on the approach (e.g., simple enjoyment or more analytical), will choose the glass accordingly. Still, there is no argument that these glasses make a real difference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect choice for all around drinking
If you only want one shape of glass, the Chablis/Chardonnay glass is the perfect choice. It's extremely well balanced, and the shape is well suited to swirling a full serving and evaluating the "nose". The lip is thin and the opening is relatively wide at the top, requiring less tipping back to drink than the narrower mouthed glasses, such as the zinfandel/chianti/riesling glass. These glasses are also less huge and seem less out of place with your average sized cutlery and plates than the syrah, cabernet or pinot noir glasses. The more rounded, narrower-mouthed zin/chianti/riesling glass (Riedel 416/15) is another good all around choice. I would not recommended Riedel's so-called "gourmet glass", the stems of which are far too short.

I dislike the largish etched logo, which Riedel puts on the feet of their glasses. I'd rather just enjoy my wine.

Like all other high lead content crystal, be careful when washing these. Any kind of abrasive sponge or grit will scratch them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful glasses
I am not an oenophile and actually prefer the sweet wines. However, these glasses have helped me appeciate the dryer whites better. The tastes seems to be more complex and I no longer focus on the dryness of the wine.
The glasses themselves are beautiful. They look very delicate but have thus far survived multiple dinners and hand-washings. I received many compliments on them.
These glasses have helped this novice appreciate a wider range of white wines. They are expensive and I feel my heart race whenever anyone brushes too close to them. But they are worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Wine Glass
This wine glass is great for several reasons. First of all, it is very light. Second, you know how much wine to pour (pour to the widest point in the bowl and that is a "glass" of wine). The balance of the glass is good. We also have the burgundy wine glass; however my wife prefers her red wine in the chardonnay glass because she doesn't like to hold the big burgundy glass. If you are only going to purchase one type of wine glass, I would recommend this one. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

For folks who eat rice on a daily--or even weekly--basis, this rice cooker has a unique fuzzy-logic microchip for advanced programming and a spherical heating system that cooks on all sides of the inner pan and makes perfect rice every time. The unit cooks up to 10 cups (enough to feed a crowd of 10 or more people) of a variety of rices--white, brown, sweet, and porridge--to use in dishes such as sushi, paella, stir-fries, or curries. The cooker has settings to accommodate your preference for harder or softer rice and even has a setting for prewashed rice. The LCD screen is easy to read and the push-button controls are simple to program once you've mastered them. A programmable timer allows you to set your cooking time without worry that rice will burn or get overcooked--and the start and complete time of your cooking cycle signals with a pleasant melody rather than a jarring beep (although you can choose a beep if you prefer it). Another excellent option is the ability to keep rice warm for up to 12 hours after cooking is complete, so you can cook before work and have warm rice at dinner. The Extended Keep Warm function warms rice for up to 8 hours at a lower temperature and reduces the chance of rice drying out or becoming discolored or odorous. Both the inner pan and inner lid detach from the unit for thorough cleaning. The rice cooker has a plastic handle for transporting it from cabinet to counter and a retractable cord for easy storage. The appliance comes with two measuring cups, a spatula, and a spatula holder and is covered by a limited one-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Essential Kitchen Appliance
This is an amazing machine. Not only does it cook a variety of rices to perfection, but it does an even better job on whole grains and beans. It also works well for cooking one pot meals. My favorite use for the cooker is for breakast, the porridge cycle produces fantastic rice porridge as well as splendid oatmeal. Using the timer function we can put our contents in before leaving for work and dinner is ready when we get home. We use it every day and it is a total breeze to operate and cleanup is very easy. The investment seems like a lot before you buy it, but after a couple of months it seems like a ....

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the best rice cooker i've owned!
You can say goodbye to burnt rice once you start using this machine. Rice indeed tastes better!

Warts: it cooks slower than previous rice cookers i've owned. even in its "quick cooking" setting it still takes more than half an hour to cook 3 cups of regular white rice. another thing is its buttons. they're too hard to push...it probably gets easier in time, though.

despite the warts, i still love this rice cooker!

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every cent
This is one of my favorite gadgets and can not live without items. I do a lot of cooking and have had this machine for about 1 year. When it is rice time (and i tend to cook a lot of it since I bought this machine), I set the machine and by the time the rest of the dinner is ready, the rice is cooked and ready to eat without worrying about it. I can concentrate on the items on the menu. As you can tell, my meals always include several items. For a busy person, this is worth every penny of it. There is a battery in the machine which will eventually need to be replaced, but I called the company and they said if you keep the machine plugged in, the battery should last at least 6 years or more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Long cook time, but great rice! Easy to clean too.
I purchased this cooker as a present for myself this past Christmas, and boy was this ever a great gift! My husband is a rice junkie, and this makes good rice every time.

On the directions/manual:
It took me a little bit to read through the directions; they are a bit hard to follow. I found that the continuous interspersing of multiple languages (and some peculiar English - they liked the phrase "tasty rice" to describe well-cooked rice) to be a bit troublesome for continuity. I was really unsure of cooking the first time, but after two trial batches, I found cooking to be a breeze.

On cleaning:
One (low-star recommendation) reviewer said about the lid not coming off to clean properly; this is not the case. Granted the lid is not non-stick like the pan, but I can't say that I ever had more than the littlest bit of rice starch show up between the inner lid and the outer cover. The inner lid is fully removable, and just needs wiped when warm to fully clean. To clean the pan, I found that removing all excess rice at the end of the meal, and then leaving the pan sit open until the next morning makes all the rest of the rice starch dry up. It only then takes me about 3 minutes to clean the cooking bowl, as well as the remainder of the cooker.

On cooking length:
It takes 35-48 minutes to cook regular basmati rice. This seems like a rather long time, but since preparation is so quick, it isn't that much of a nuisance. Rather it's just an inconvenience if you want to eat soon (and you probably will, the rice really is GOOD)!

Extras:
I find that this cooker is a perfect traveler for family functions as well. I normally make chili for family gatherings (slow cooker), and making if I make rice in this sucker before I leave, I just have to unplug it, and if the cover stays closed, I have found the rice to still be pleasantly warm up to 3 or 4 hours after it was unplugged.

Hope this helps!

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great machine
I was a bit hesitant to spend so much on a rice cooker. From my 20+ years of making white rice almost daily, a rice cooker is a rice cooker. After using this machine everyday for 2 months, I find it to be no different from the many others I had used of similar style (ie a non-removable outer lid and a removable inner lid), except that it has something I desperately in need of --- a timer. The quality of the cooked rice is the same, though it takes almost twice as long to cook and reheat as other cookers. As another reviewer mentioned, I too don't particularly care for the condensation dripping, but I did not find the gross build-up. I find this cooker to be more bulky than my previous 10-cup cooker. However, because of the timer, I am very happy with this machine. ... Read more

Founded in 1756, Austria’s Riedel Crystal is the world’s premier manufacturer of wine glasses and has always catered to the fine wine connoisseur. However, these wine tumblers are part of the company’s first attempt at producing a lower priced wine glass for casual entertaining. Like Riedel’s prestigious Vinum series of glasses, these tumblers are specifically designed for a particular grape varietal and still maintain their ability to enhance the flavors and aromas of the wines they were intended for. The only difference is that the tumblers are missing their stems, making them slightly less delicate to handle, more modern in appearance, and easier to fit in smaller cabinets, mini bars, picnic baskets, and the dishwasher.

The O series of glasses are made of machine-made of non-leaded glass. The shape of the two glasses in this set is specifically recommended for young, full-bodied red wines with high tannin and extract, such as Cabernet or Merlot. Each glass holds 21-1/8 ounces of wine, stands 4-7/8 inches tall, and is completely dishwasher-safe. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks Riedel: A fine glass that's fun and functional
We first saw and used these glasses at an up-scale wine tasting shop in Las Vegas and knew we had to buy some. The glass allows the wine to breathe and the bouquet to reach the nose. The best part is that there are no stems to break or spilled wine from being knocked over! (A tipped glass will actually balance itself without spilling any wine.) It's the Riedel Vinum glass without the stem and it is fun to see guests' reaction to the stemless Riedel. Try it; you'll like it!

4-0 out of 5 stars No need for stems
I've been known to serve wine in tempered glass tumblers (like juice glasses) so it's nice to have a balloon shape but no stem. Nothing clumsier on a picnic table or outdoors on a windy deck than a stemmed wineglass. These don't insult the wine in the least and are quite practical for al fresco serving or anytime you just don't want to be as fancy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very COOL new wine glass....
I bought these from a specialty wine catalog/website for a few dollars more than offered here.
These are so cool and easy to handle and make enjoying your favorite wine just more fun! Plus they take up less cupboard space!!! A great gift for your favorite wine lover...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product
When I first heard about Riedel coming out with a stemless glass I was a bite skeptical. I have now been using for about 2 weeks now and they are really great for everyday use. Best of all their less expensive and if they break it doesn't hurt as much. Definitly a good buy for everyday use, stick to the Vinum or if you want to spend a little money the Sommeliers series for formal dinner parties and the like. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the attachment workhorse
I've used this attachment more times than I ever thought I would. I've used it to prepare food items for my family as well as food items for crowds as large as 200 and regardless of what it is I've been making, this attachment has rolled through it without complaint. In combination with other pieces such as the sausage stuffer or the fruit attachments, you may well find that this single attachment stays on your machine the longest.

I am absoultely stunned at how easy it is to put together and how simple it is to get wonderfully ground items out of it. I've had no trouble grinding any cut of meat (marbled or lean), type of meat (venison, beef, pork, chicken), or state of meat (cooked or raw). Things like chickpeas also get ground just the way I like them. The two, differently sized grinding plates give you just what you need in texture. My biggest pleasure in using this attachment is during hunting season when my husband brings home more than one deer. Venison burger meat and sausage processing never went faster. No more late nights with a hand-crank grinder!

When you're done, there's nothing simpler in the cleanup. Nothing seems to stick to the plastic (plus, it's dishwasher safe!) and the metal pieces wash up quickly by hand. Even the little wooden stomper cleans well (and I've felt lost without it when I couldn't find it during sausage making). I think this attachment is the easiest to use of all of the ones I've tried.

I'll never regret the purchase of this attachment.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not for meaty bones
I bought this attachment thinking I would be able to use it to grind chicken wings and other small meaty bones to prepare the BARF diet for my dogs, but it definitely is not intended for that purpose. I have ground some meat with it, and it seems to mash more than grind, but perhaps I should have partially frozen the meat first before grinding as one of the package instructions suggested. I'm primarily posting this review for anyone searching for a meat grinder that is intended for bones in addition to meat. Keep looking - this one can't do it. The entire attachment gyrated and probably would have broken off the hub if I hadn't cut the power first, and I have the powerful professional 6.0 model stand mixer (which is great for large amounts of cookie dough, by the way - no more burnt-out hand mixers!). Check out the other reviews if you're just looking to make sausage or something, but if you're trying to become a BARFer, look elsewhere! I just ordered a VillaWare 5265-05 Power Grinder 320 on the advice of another reviewer, so I'll be sure to review that one once I receive it and see what it can do. Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great attachment, Most often used out of them all
I bought this attachment at the same time I bought two or three other attachments, and this is the one I use all of the time. I found that grinding meats to be very useful. I have a mother who is 88 and she prefers everything tender and juicy. So unless it is cooked until it is super tender, she doesn't eat it. With the Kitchen Aid FGA that is all solved. For example I buy chicken in large quantities when it is on sale, and grind it up. Adding shredded rye bread, some Italian seasoned bread crumbs , rosemary, and oregano in the mix, and I make a hamburger(chicken)-meat loaf, or meat balls that are tender. Without the food grinder, I would have to buy preground meat.
Their are those who find that the best way to buy chicken is whole, that way you can inspect the whole bird. By buying parts, they are able to cut out the unsightlies, and sell the parts. With preground meat that is even more of a concern. With the Food Grinder attachment, you have the option of handling that item whichever way you may choose.
Clean up is a snap. It almost falls apart, disassembly is that easy. Cleans up easily with some soap and warm water, or by putting it into the dishwasher. The cutting blades are handwashed. They appear to be high strength steel, and I am concerned about them getting lost in the wash, and degrading the finish. They clean up in only a minute. The rest of it goes into the dishwasher.
Even though the FGA is made out of plastic on the outside, the internal components are metal. It is very durable, and works without a snag. No jams, no problems. It attaches easily to the front of your Kitchen Aid stand mixer, and sits very securely. I expect it will last for a very long period of time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Perfect
This attachment for the kitchenaid stand mixer is great. This saves so much time when it comes to grinding up stuff. I used it mostly to grind carrots for when I baked carrot cakes. You can't find grinders that grind like this anymore. This attachment saved on buying an additional food processor that hardly works that well when it comes to grind up stuff.I like to grind and this is the next best thing (wink)

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for baby food!
I used this attachment to make loads of baby food for my son. It is so practical for grinding meats - especially if you are trying to feed organic foods. I found it easy to use on cooked meat, I never tried it on fresh or frozen.

I gave it 4 stars because it is a pain to clean. I cleaned the worm and grinder plates with a baby bottle brush and nipple brush.

Excellent gift for new moms who already own a mixer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Stainless steel....no stains or bacteria
If you're like me, when I am grilling - there is grease, oil and many other grilling sauces flying about that would ruin a wood handled tool during the first use. These stainless steel beauties will stand up to your biggest BBQ parties. They have a nice length to them which will keep your hands and arms clear of the BTUs. The thickness of the steel is guaranteed to last, you can feel the quality of these tools immediately.

I purchased these because they matched the 2002 model of Weber Genesis Gold series, but they really would shine on any model or manufacturer.

Easy cleanup in the dishwasher... and they come with a 10, yes TEN year guarantee!

5-0 out of 5 stars All I Can Say Is, "WOW!!!"
End of message.

Kidding. I was surprised at how BIG these tools are! They are gargantuan. They are at least 20" long, and they are very wide and very heavy. I could turn over a Volkswagen with the spatula!

As others have written, I like the all-steel construction. This makes them easy to clean and keep sanitary.

I am ordering another set because once my family lays their eyes on these tools, they'll steal them!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality
I've owned this set for over a year, and I can tell you these tools are strong and durable. They are large, easily handling larger cuts of meat. They look nice, feel nice, they've been left out in the rain for days with no problem. These tools will last forever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well-constructed set
This heavy-duty, stainless steel set consists of tongs, a fork, and a turner. They're so sturdily constructed you could use them as exotic martial arts weapons. In fact, I'm working up a cool tong and fork kata right now. The turner doubles as an S & M flail for those into kinky stuff. Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Manly tools for the grill
You could try to take over a small country with these grill tools if you wanted to! Heavy duty stainless construction makes you feel like you are working with something solid that will last forever! My only disappointment was how they washed up in the dishwasher. From here on out they will be washed by hand. ... Read more

A great gift, this seven-piece set equips a cook with fiveessential kitchen knives, a 9-inch sharpening steel to keep blade edgesaligned, and a hardwood block to store knives and steel on the counter.The knives are a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, a 5-3/4-inch utility knife,an 8-inch carving knife, an 8-inch bread knife to slice crusty loaves,and an 8-inch chef's knife for rocking through chopping and mincingtasks. The knives don't have bolsters and are stamped, not forged fromstainless steel. The steel is of lesser quality than Henckels' premierlines. Handles are also formed of stainless steel, and their satinfinish contrasts stylishly with the blades. The knives aredishwasher-safe and carry a lifetime warranty against defects.--Fred Brack

3-0 out of 5 stars Just OK
I am not a professional chef, but I am an avid cook and I found this knife set to be a bit disappointing. I purchased it with hopes of getting a good set of Henckels knives with a longwearing stainless steel handle. Instead, these knives feel VERY light, the shape is hard to handle for fast chopping or dicing, and the handles frankly just feel strange in your hand (they have a sort of a sandpaper texture.) I would only recommend these knives for someone who prefers beauty to function- they are attractive in the block on the counter. In my house, however, they never leave the block.

5-0 out of 5 stars A bargain at twice the price
By far the best cutlery set you will ever own.
A+ in my book, even if this set was twice the price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Advertised Price A Sham?
This item is advertised on may different websites at $29.99, however when you try to buy it, Amazon suddenly jacks the price up to $34.99?

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Thermometer I've Used
I've tried several other types of thermometers to no avail. I've used both the standard meat thermomter as well as more expensive digital thermometers. This works better than anything I've tried. The remote saves trips out the bbq and I've never had any trouble reading it. A must buy for any serious bbq.

1-0 out of 5 stars Beware the limitation!!!
I returned mine. Why? Because it does not give you a reading for anything over 199 degrees. I purchased mine for use in a Weber smoker. I wanted to measure temperatures up to 220 degrees inside the smoker. This timer only registers to 199 degrees. After that it just beeps to tell you (as the directions say:) "out of range". It worked fine below that, but it was useless with any temps over that. It says the probe can register up to 480 degrees or something, so why limit the readout?

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Seasonal Tool
The remote sensor is the selling point on this one. The utility of having the alarm unit in the house is wonderful, especially for us year round cooks - no more running outside in the snow to check the meat. Luv it. Got 2 - one for the charcoal, one for the gas. Note: when you screw up and let the probe cord overheat, you can buy replacement probes from manufacturers of similar reading digital temp sensors.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed.
Ever had a meal go up in smoke because you got pulled away from the grill? This solves the problem. Also, I grill a lot about 3 times a week and that's just in the winter. This saves a lot of those trips out to the grill to probe the food and eliminates the need to open the grill cover and lose all that heat. Just stick it in put it on the grill and forget about it.

I really works.

1. Just to test things out I wheeled my grill to the far edge of my property then went down to my basement. I still got a full signal about 80 linear feet away through a brick wall and two thick plaster-lathe interior walls.

2. The monitor warns you when your food is within 5 degrees of your desired doneness so you have time to react..

3. It really really cooked my steak medium rare.

4 Minor annoyance: It has handy preprogrammed settings for rare, medium rare, medium etc. for beef, veal and lamb. But it assumes you want hamburger, fish and poultry well done. In case you don't want these foods cooked that well you need to find an appropriate temperature setting from one of the other foods. For example If you need to turn a turkey and want to be warned when it raches 145 degrees you'd need to set the monitor for beef and medium rare, which happens to be 145 degrees. Would have been nice if it had the option to directly set the monitor for a specific temperature.

Still this thing is absolutely great. Just what I always wished I had. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Mmmm, fresh coffee....
I purchased this press as a Christmas present for a coffee lover. We are both very pleased with it! In just 4 minutes it made excellent coffee with no grinds whatsoever in the brew. We used filtered drinking water from our cooler and fresh ground coffee and it was some of the best coffee I've tasted. We got about 3 big cups out of it and it did stay hot for quite awhile, although we drank it up too quickly to find out just how long it would stay hot. It was also easy clean-up, very few parts to clean out thanks to it's simple design. This will be great to travel and camp with as well as make great coffee quickly in the morning. Highly recommended for coffee lovers!

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding French Press
I have been searching for a thermal french press to replace my coffee maker and this is it! It makes a perfect cup of coffee, stays warm, and looks really really cool. For the folks that complain about keeping coffee warm--the only way to maintain 200+degrees is to add heat from an external source which tends to ruin the coffee. A thermal pot is a compromise but works well if you drink the coffee in a reasonable amount of time. The pot is small enough to make 3 or 4 cups at a time and so easy to rinse out. You can make more by simply putting the kettle back on to boil when you're ready. Freshly made coffee is better than anything that has sat in a pot for an hour or more--duh!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Camp Coffee
We have travel trailer but often camp where there is no electricity. Stove-top percolators just boiled the coffee. The 8-cup pot gives me two+ big mugs of great-tasting coffee and the second cup is hot without being 'scorched'. If you have more than one or two coffee drinkers, I'd consider the 12 cup pot.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the French Press that will convert the doubtful
This is by far the best coffee making device I have ever owned. It keeps coffee hot, the plunger seals tightly to reduce sludge, and it's more than easy to clean. Plus...no more broken carafes.

5-0 out of 5 stars My best coffee ever!
I got this press for Christmas two years ago and absolutely LOVE it! I've used french presses for almost 10 years and was only disappointed that the coffee didn't stay hot. Then this baby came along and solved that problem! The coffee stays fairly hot for a couple of hours if you make sure to turn the lid so it is shut (there is a little arrow that points to the spout when open and to the handle when closed). Also, because the plunger has a plastic seal around the rim, there is hardly any coffee "sludge" at the bottom of your cup. And because it is stainless steel it will not break, it is a cinch to clean, and it stays bright and shiny.

I highly recommend this pot to anyone who really loves coffee - it takes a tad more work, but what a difference! Plus, it is truly beautiful - how many coffee makers can say that? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Lodge
This is a great griddle/grill. It's a huge chunk of cast iron so it's going to be heavy. You should just expect that. But that's one of the things that make cast iron so great. It's sturdy, indestructible, heats evenly, and holds heat well. It's the closest thing to grilling besides actually firing up the grill. Food cooked on the grill side has a smoky, grilled flavor. The griddle side is great for bacon, sausages, hash browns, fajitas, and cheese steaks. I haven't been brave enough to try pancakes yet. Clean up of the grill side is the only drawback, as even a well-seasoned piece will occasionally have bits that stick and burn, especially at high heat. Even so, this is a very minor inconvenience for such a great piece. A good exhaust hood or a couple of open doors or windows will make use easier also. I just consider it part of the experience. We love to take ours camping. Over the fire or on a camp stove it's a large, versatile piece of cookware. Breakfast for the whole family can cook on one side. Season and wash correctly and this will give you lifetimes of use. I'm sure your kids, grandkids, and great grandkids will love it too.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Necessity
If you like to grill in the winter, then you should buy this grill! Season it well and follow all the instructions and you'll have no trouble keeping the grill clean. The griddle is great for Sunday morning breakfasts. It is heavy, so you've been warned. Non-stick grills can't compared, as the non-stick peels away after awhile. This grill will last!

2-0 out of 5 stars a big warping heavy messy piece!
I own at least a dozen of the lodge cookware pieces and love them very much but this is not such a great thing. I went through the normal in the oven seasoning that always works just great but this thing warped like a potato chip! It did flatten back out as it cooled but everytime I put it on my two burners to use, it warps again making it very rocky on the stove top and my pancakes looked like Picasso made them. It always flattens back out but it's really a pain in the ah hum to use. The grill side set off all the smoke detectors and left a greasey film on everything in my whole house and I was only using a med low burner, well, at least the door stopped squeeking! It is also a bit to narrow for two rows of pancakes unless you make them very small and the center doesn't get hot enough. Just when you thought you've experienced all the unpleasantness of this pan, you then go to clean it and discover you'd be better off just throwing it out in the yard for the dogs to lick clean! I love you Lodge, I really do but I'll stick to outside grilling and my larger lodge skillet for hotcakes, the 13 inch round pan is a dream as are all the other pieces I own. As for this heavy sticky thing well, I may try it out on my fire ring next cookout and if that doesn't work out, it's yard sale time!

4-0 out of 5 stars No Soap Ever
Once seasoned this is a great, if messy, item to use. Try to set up a surround to catch the splatter. If you can't get your irons from a restaurant going out of business or a farm sale(Check institutions also)season well before first use. A rule of thumb is to use it for french fries for the first 5-6 times. NEVER try to cook starch or sugar foods the first Ten times of use!!!! Pro cooks never use the first crepe even though their pans are well seasoned. For the best seasoning build a fire outside and put the iron in it. This will burn off the wax coating or SOAP residue and tighten up the metal. If that seems a little over the top for you, put it in the bottom of your oven for about a month. Some smoke will always be present when seasoning an iron; which is why I suggest doing it outside or letting your favourite restaurant do it for you. Just drop it off and they will burn and abuse it into terrific shape. In about three months your iron will be like teflon. Ugly as sin,but a great pan. When cleaning: NEVER NEVER use soap!!!(The chinese never use soap in their woks and they are plain sheet steel). I never use soap on the cooking surface of any of my fry pans be they stainless,aluminum or iron(I don't use painted frypans). Just wipe it out with a paper towel or damp cloth and immediately add a light coating of oil. If necessary, use plain hot water and a little E grease. And NEVER EVER let an iron soak.. The next time you use it rub a few drops of oil over the surface,place on the heat then add your cooking oil. Also,whenever possible, after cooking outdoors, use the fine talcum like dust left in the BarBQ. Scour with the ash, rinse well and coat with a neutral oil and put on a heat source if possible. Allow to cool and wipe off residue. Finally,if your not real dedicated to this type of cookware FORGETABOUTIT. It can be a pain. stick with your usual teflon cookware. That's why they invented the stuff.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the trouble of cast-iron care
For pancakes, this iron griddle heats slowly and evenly, and it holds the heat better than a teflon griddle but...you...must...season this and instruct well-meaning helpers NOT, repeat, NOT to use any soap of any kind, sponge, steel wool pad, on the griddle. Ever. If you are worried about cleaning it, you can scrub the surface with a hot, clean water, handful of cooking salt and a clean paper towel. After seasoning, pancakes cook evenly and this is wide enough to go over two burners and really get some production going at breakfast. Just remember about the seasoning and the No-Soap. ...

By combining a regular coffeemaker and espresso machine, this1500-watt appliance makes it possible to satisfy every coffee cravingwith a single, compact unit. Separate water tanks permit simultaneouscoffee and espresso brewing for satisfying everyone at once. Theespresso-machine side includes a steam nozzle with a foolproof frothingattachment for creating coffee drinks like cappuccino and café latté.Making espresso follows tradition: tamping the proper amount of coffeeinto a filter basket inside a filter holder, twisting the filter holderonto the machine, pouring water into the machine's boiler, and twistingthe control knob, which instantly goes from the off position to brewingespresso or frothing milk. Depending on the amount of water, up to four2-ounce cups will then be brewed into an 8-ounce glass carafe.

Making regular coffee also adheres to tradition: inserting a filterinto the filter basket, spooning in coffee, pouring water into thecoffeemaker's tank, and pressing a button. Depending on the amount ofwater, up to ten 5-ounce cups of coffee will then be brewed into a50-ounce glass carafe, which sits on a warming plate. Removing thecarafe from the warming plate pauses the brewing process for 20 secondsto accommodate a midbrew pour. A programmable digital clock/timer makesit possible to brew wake-up coffee at a selected time up to 24 hours inadvance. For safety, the machine automatically shuts off two hoursafter brewing. The machine has a bright plastic exterior, measures 13inches wide, 12 inches high, and 10 inches deep, weighs 4-3/4 pounds,and carries a one-year warranty against defects. An illustrated bookletprovides clear operating instructions. --Fred Brack

5-0 out of 5 stars 8 Years Old and Still Works Flawlessly
I bought this unit 8 years ago and it hasn't skipped a beat. I've made coffee with it almost every day and it still works as well as the day I bought it. It's performance is nothing short of remarkable. I recommend cleaning it with 1/2 strength vinegar at least once a year to remove mineral deposits.

As far as the espresso function, I've used it sporadically but have always been impressed with the quality of the foam/brew. I couldn't imagine a better performing coffemaker in terms of appearance, quality, and function for the price.

When and if this unit fails, I will definitely buy another Krups model.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid performer
I have the previous version of this machine which I have used practically every day for about the last 10 YEARS! And it works just fine. The large 10 cup pot/section is easy to clean, easy to pour, makes good coffee. The espresso part I have used daily since returning from Spain this last April, and it works very well. I really can't think of anything this machine should do that it doesn't. When using the frothing milk attachment you are going to have to clean it, but you really can't make great coffee without making a little mess. Does everything it should, does it well, been doing it for a long time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Espresso Schmesso!
Recently bought this product after my old machine, a combo like this one, finally gave out after 13 years. Right off the bat the espresso side isn't working. Water goes through okay by itself, but when there's coffee in the filter I only get about 2 cups of product when I poured in 4 cups of water! I'll be calling soon to either get this fixed or to send it back.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a mistake to purchase this product
I have had Krups products before so when I wanted to own a dual machine I looked up different reviews and picked this one. Wish someone had told me what a problem that would be. First the espresso machine broke after 1.5 months of use!!! I called to get it fixed and even though I sent in the registration card, they have no way of confirming my purchase so officially it isn't under warranty. In addition, even though I live in a major metropolitan area (DC) the closest service center is 1.5 hours away. I am suppose to drive 3 hours to fix a machine that broke so soon? Not helpful and wish I didn't have a broken machine. Waste of money.

5-0 out of 5 stars great machine!!!
Ok, I have the older version that doesn't have the timer. It was a wedding gift over 7 years ago. We used this machine (both coffee and espresso sides) daily sometimes several times a day and it wasn't until recently that we had problems.

We made the mistake of not cleaning with vinegar on a regular basis and ended up clogging the espresso side because of our hard water. The coffee side still works, but I miss my morning mocha latte. :( Technically, I did fix the espresso side by using Lime Away, but can't get that smelll and taste out of the coffee for it to be safe to consume. So, my advice is to clean with 1/2 vinegar 1/2 water on a regular basis and stay away from Lime Away.

So, I'm back in the market for an espresso machine and we will purchase a new Krups dual machine as soon as we get a water softener. In the meantime I'm purchasing a cheap espresso machine, as the "coffee shop" trips are becoming too frequent and cost too much.

As for people complaining about the sturdiness of htis machine - I don't know what they are talking about. I have NEVER had a problem with the plastic breaking or anything like that. Also, I've never experienced leaks in 7 years. Of course, I loved my machine and took care of it too - with the exception of removing hard water build up.

Oh yeah, the coffee tastes awesome. I'm not a lover of strong coffee, but we have always purchased beans and ground them ourselves. So, our coffee is fresh and tastes wonderful. I highly recommend this machine for the coffee lover. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good value and does the job
We have been very happy with this product. It has really ruduced bing time and effort. Battery life seems fine. It's powerful enough, but more power is always better. We haven't really found use for all of the extra adapters/fitting and primarily use just the scrubber for our bathrooms. It was an average value for the price $40, but it's not like there are 100 out there to choose from. I'd recommend the product, particularly if you're tired of scrubbing and would rather just hold the product while it does the scrubbine (weak arms may still get tired because you have to press).

5-0 out of 5 stars The Bomb
I have been thinking about getting one of these for ages. I don't know why I ever waited.

I have an off white shower & no water softener so I have mineral build up. With a busy family the last thing thought about is the bathroom. It takes hours to try to scrub the stuff off. This makes short work off it.

Sure the battery doesn't last that long, about 1/2 hour, but that's ok. Do 1/2 then recharge & do the other 1/2. After the hard stuff is gone then 1 battery will do fine. Well I have extra batteries because I have a Black & Decker Dremel tool which is the bomb too. It is hard to get into the corners but you can't have everything I guess.

I recomend this to anyone who wants to spend less time cleaning the bathroom. It's great. Get the one with the extra attachments. I think it is going to be great come Spring on the patio furniture, etc.

If you have an electric toothbrush then you have an idea of the difference between this & scrubbing by hand.

4-0 out of 5 stars Adequate Power For The Purpose
I bought this to help me out when I was re-caulking and deep cleaning the shower/bath in our apartment and it really helped me out. I usually just take a brillo bad to the hard-to-clean areas, but all I had to do is hold this down on the area to get it clean. The only thing I would change about it is battery life. 6 hours to charge it enough for 30 minutes isn't very convenient if you have a lot of work to do. I know that it needs to be battery for electric shock reasons, but some sort of power attachment for areas you won't be submerging the scrubber in would be better.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for some things, not a lot of muscle
I bought this expressly for cleaning the shower. I'm a big strong guy, but lazy, and the repetive scrubbing and awkward angles of cleaning a shower make that the only cleaning task I truly despise.

I just now tried cleaning my shower with this thing, and it helped with a few things, but didn't really cut down on cleaning time like I had hoped. First of all, the Wide Area Brush attachment is useless for this task. The different models come with fewer or more attachments, so make sure yours comes with the blue Coarse Scrub Pad.

For the rim of the tub it was a lot faster to scrub it by hand with a regular brush. The bottom and the walls worked ok with the machine, and the fixtures were a lot easier than using my own muscle, primarily because the angles and protrusions make it hard to scrub by hand.

The long handle extension is useful in some circumstances, but wasn't long enought to let me stand while scrubbing.

In all, if you're strong but lazy (like me), the ScumBuster may not be the dream solution you are looking for. It doesn't really save time over manual labor, and isn't fast/powerful enough to get tough mold, etc., better than hand scrubbing.

OTOH, it's great for hard-to-get-to areas around the faucet, and might be a boon for a weaker person who can't scrub hard enough to get rid of tougher stains. It'll just take a really long time.

Although I've used it only on the shower so far, I imagine it will be very helpful on carpet, where it seems that no matter how hard you can scrub, it still takes lots of repetition to get a stain out.

If you're looking for a (probably) good carpet cleaner and an easy way to scrub around faucets, the toilet, and other obstacles to scrubbing, this is what you need. If what you're looking for is an easy way to get rid of tough shower stains, you'll probably be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
This product is truly worth the money. I particularly like to use it on the carpet because it gets spots out quick and easy. The variety of attachments make it a no-brainer for the shower and the bath. I'm going around my house looking for things to scrub because it is fun to use. ... Read more

Bounty Hunter's Tracker IV detector offers the excitement and profit of metal detecting at an accessible price, making it ideal for those just getting started. With a fully submersible, 8-inch Bounty D-Tech search coil, the Tracker IV features three different operating modes to help you hit pay dirt. Motion all-metals mode responds to any metals you sweep over, full discrimination mode rejects iron and other trash items, and tone discrimination alerts you with one or two audio pitches for different types of metals. The Tracker IV does not have the LCD that many of Bounty Hunter's other models boast, featuring instead a large Sensitivity Meter. Ground Trac, a feature that automatically balances the machine to the soil conditions, makes the Tracker IV a tremendous value. Users will also enjoy Bounty Hunter's comprehensive, easy-to-understand online tutorial and downloadable manual at www.detecting.com. The Tracker IV runs off of two 9-volt alkaline batteries and boasts a five-year limited warranty. --Ariel Meadow Stallings ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bounty Hunter Tracker IV - No Experience Necessary
I figured that any metal detector would find the '32 Chevy buried in my backyard, but I wanted to find coins, rings, and Civil War relics in my 5 acre woods. It took 5 minutes to assemble the Tracker IV and about 15 minutes to review the instruction manual. Round up a few coins, a gold ring, and some nails and run through the demonstration on page 5 of the manual. It will give you an idea of how different objects respond to the 3 detection modes.

I borrowed my wife's headphones (highly recommended) and headed for the woods. Within minutes I found beer cans, shotgun shells, nails. The detector will pinpoint an object close enough that you can dig it up with a few scoops of a garden trowel. On my second attempt I found a man's silver ring.

Tracker IV appears to be well constructed and a good value. I don't have any experience with other detectors, but I can't imagine that any are easier to use than this one. Tracker IV is a great choice for your kids to use, if they can get it away from you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Impressed........nice features
I bought one used for [$$$] on .... I started scanning my Girlfriend's yard (house built in 1940's) and immediately picked up all sorts of signals. After a day I became used to the different tones and began discriminating what to and not to dig. That day I found 3 spoons, one of them is silver, and 5 wheat pennies. The next day I searched a sledding hill and found about [$$$] in change. I think its a great deal for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's good, but.......
I collect rare bottle caps, and try to take care not to lose any of my collection. I was coming back from a convention recently and one of my collection boxes hopped out of the back of the pickup as I was crossing an old hump-back bridge, and fell into a small stream.

So I bought the metal detector to try to get my valuable collection back. This one said it is waterproof so I figured it might do the job.

Well, after three weeks of wading up and down the stream I have had mixed fortunes. A Celtic chalice, the silver cumtach (cover) from a medieval bible, two viking swords, a couple of daggers, a mound of celtic, roman and viking coins, an array of viking hacksilver, medieval broches and buckes from shoes and belts, delicately filigreed celtic gold jewellry and most notable of all (since the Romans never made it to Ireland) the metal fittings from eight complete and six incomplete sets of roman imperial legionnary armour.

OK, so I am famous now amongst scholars of the Romano-Celtic world. I have been awarded three honorary doctorate degrees for my finds, and I have been given freedom of the cities of Dublin and York, and I had to decline a Royal knighthood offered by the English Queen (I do have principles and I am an Irish Republican). But what is all this fame? I have lost a box of 200 bottle caps and not found a single one with the detector.

In that collection was a rare 1950's Kirin blue, a 1945 victory V double diamond crown cap and most valuable of all a Grolsch porcelain stopper from the first ever commercial batch. What does it profit a man to gain the world if he loseth his bottle cap collection?

If you buy the metal detector I hope you have more luck than me!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thrilled in Michigan
I bought this product for my 13 year old son's birthday, and he was thrilled. I was thrilled because it was easy to put together, works great over many different terrains, and is so easy to use, the whole family has enjoyed it! It is the perfect Tracker for us.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy to Use
The Bounty Hunter was exactly what I was looking for. My 11 year old son and I wanted to expore metal detecting together. I didn't want to invest a large amount of money in something that was too high tech or that he would lose interest in. I didn't want to spend too little and get a cheap product. This item was priced right and so far has proven to be a quality item. It was easy to assemble (maybe 5 minutes), takes 2 standard 9 volt batteries and is lightweight enough for my 11 year old to handle with ease. The shaft adjusts in height so when I finally get my turn, I can adjust it to fit me.

We are having a ball so far with it. We haven't found any high dollar finds yet, but the neighborhood kids have gone with us the last few days and made it a fun treasure hunt. In our search of a couple vacant lots, we have found 17 cents, lots of nails, an old bottle cap, a saw blade and other misc items. We plan on taking this into the mountains soon, as it is waterproof so you can look for gold in the rivers. We can't wait! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Reach for the All-Clad 12-quart multi-cooker whenever you cook up a big batch of pasta, a mess of corn on the cob, or clams for a crowd. Oven-safe to 500 degrees F, the multi-cooker comes with riveted stainless-steel handles. The included pasta basket and steamer basket feature lift-out handles to simplify draining and can be set aside if you are cooking soup or chili. 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 18/10 highly polished 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. --Fred Brack

From the Manufacturer
All-Clad Stainless Construction
Each piece of All-Clad cookware features a unique metal bonding construction. All-Clad Stainless cookware sandwiches a thick core of three separate layers of aluminum between an easy-to-clean, highly polished 18/10 stainless-steel cooking surface and a magnetic stainless-steel exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The magnetic stainless-steel exterior gives the cookware a gleaming finish. All-Clad Stainless also features the company’s signature "stay-cool" long handles, lids fashioned from gleaming 18/10 stainless steel, and highly durable stainless-steel rivets. All-Clad Stainless cookware is one of five collections from All-Clad Metalcrafters. Designed to work on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as induction cooktops, All-Clad Stainless cookware is the best-selling collection in a full line that includes All-Clad LTD, Cop-R-Chef, Master Chef 2, and Copper Core.

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.

Warranty
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. Other specialty pans include a larger brasier pan with domed-shape lid; a complete family of round-shaped saucier saucepans for versatile stove-top cooking; a flare-sided Windsor pan in two sizes, designed for reduction and the creation of rich sauces; and a contemporary "Soup for Two" 3-1/2-quart soup pot; casseroles; an open stir fry; a versatile wok-style chef’s pan; and a "Pasta Pentola" 7-quart stockpot with colander insert and lid. All saucepans, casseroles, sauté pans, stock pots, and specialty items come with lids. Double boiler and steamer inserts, including the large steamer insert for 6-quart, 8-quart and 12-quart stockpots, are available as well. Stainless cookware sets are available in various sizes, from a starter 5-piece to a complete 10-piece set.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice product, but not like other (U.S. made) All-Clad
Having a number of All Clad products in my kitchen, I was excited to see this stockpot at such a low "close out" price. When it arrived, I was somewhat disappointed to see that it is not the same construction or quality as the other All Clad cookware that I have. When I ordered it, I wondered why this 12 qt pot was priced so much less than other smaller stockpots (and about 1/3 the price of the All Clad pasta cooker), and now I know - this "multi cooker" was not made in the U.S., it was made in China (as is the Emerilware). It seems deceptive (and is disappointing) that this bears the exact same label as the U.S. product and the description gives no indication that it is anything less than the same U.S. made All Clad, which is well known to many of us. However, in fairness, I need to say that priced at under [$$$], this is still one heck of a pot that I will enjoy using, but just be aware that it is a different quality of All Clad cookware.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Stock Pot and Amazing Value!
Ok, this is obviously not the same as the traditional All Clad stock pots, if it was it would be more then triple the price of this one without the 2 inserts. It is part of the disk bottom collection, however it is still top quality stainless steel and very well made. I certainly would not consider it secondary. It is a little lighter in weight than the traditional All Clad but it is not a light weight pot by any means. It is great for pasta, soup, stew, steaming veggies, etc. You will love it and you can't beat the price. It is very easy to clean and the inserts can be stacked and stored inside. A+

Tip: If you should get something stuck to the stainless steel use a product called "Bar Keepers Friend" to clean it. Most supermarkets have it and Kitchen Etc. and Bed, Bath and Beyond carry it too. The container (like a Comet can) is gold with blue and white writing. All Clad recommends it for cleaning stainless steel and it works like a dream and is very inexpensive.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Thought
I purchased this on a whim through my little gold box (back when it wasn't full of jewelry offers). It was a little larger than I had expected but this has turned out to be great. I make pasta and stock (chicken and beef) in it all the time. Nothing has ever burned on me using an electric or gas stove. I was a bit hesitant based on some of the reviews but honestly found this product very useful. I would not think twice about buying it again. I gave it one less star because the lid is a little unlike the quality of the rest of All-Clad's products but I usually don't cook on the lid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Purchase
It is true that this stockpot is differently constructed if compared to the ususal all clad stockpot. But there is a reason for it. It is made to be used for pasta kind of cooking. It is not usefull to have very thick steel on sides for these type of cooking uses. For other purpose, you want to have as even heat distribution as you can using steel thickness to acheive distribution of heat.

The bottom is ULTRA THICK and it is solid and heavy.

Overall I consider I made a very good purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW! I love this pot!
I recently purchased the All-Clad 12-quart multi-cooker with two inserts, and I could not wish for a more useful addition to my cookware collection. It is a manageable size and weight (even when full), and the inserts make draining a breeze. No more steam burns for this kitchen klutz! The quality is excellent. It performs as advertised and cleaning is easy. I love this pot! ... Read more
