A great gift for a wine lover, this powerful, award-winning tool effortlessly extracts the cork from any wine bottle in 3 seconds with simple lever action. Handles with comfortable rubberized padding easily clamp onto a bottle's neck; the lever drives the tough worm into the cork with a push and then pulls the cork out cleanly with a simple pull. Releasing the cork involves the same action, only with the handles clamped onto the cork. Ruggedly constructed of polycarbonate and reinforced nylon, the cork puller has the heft of a fine, precise high-tech tool and comes by its name, Rabbit, because it resembles a bunny's head. Metrokane corkscrews are independently tested for 20,000 cork pulls; tests assume replacement of the spiral after 1,000 pulls.

This model of the Rabbit has a velvety, silver finish, as do the four tools accompanying it. The tools include a squeeze-and-twist foil cutter to strip away the foil covering a cork, a drip-stop ring that fits onto any size wine bottle to prevent stains on table linen, a sealer that twists so tightly into any size bottle's neck it preserves even Champagne bubbles, and a "wax whacker" that flips the wax tablet off a wine cork. Also included is a replacement worm--the installed worm wears out after 20,000 or so corks. The Rabbit and tools all fit snugly into a padded storage case with a hinged lid. The cork puller carries a 10-year warranty against failure. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easiest corkscrew ever!!!
I could *not* believe my eyes the first time I saw someone use a Rabbit. I've shredded SO many corks and even broken bottles trying to get corks out. I've tried so many different kinds of corkscrews (and the two-pronged non-screw-type cork-pullers), and I've been all kinds of frustrated. I'm a big and strong guy, and I've still been frustrated at how hard some corkscrews are to use.
Enter the Rabbit. It's hard to visualize from the picture, but it is SUPER-EASY, once you figure it out.
1) Flip the top over, away from the cork, raising the screw (sometimes called the "worm")
2) Place the two handles on either side of the bottle-neck, positioning the tip of the worm over the cork.
3) Squeeze the handles together to hold the bottle.
4) Bring the top handle up and over, which pushes the worm into the cork -- so easy you can't believe it.
5) Take the top handle back to where it started, and the cork is out! No muss, no fuss, no cuss!

They say removing the cork from the worm is just as easy, but it's not quite. The method for this is:
6) Bring the top handle back over, as if to put the cork back in the bottle, only without the bottle there.
7) Squeeze the side handles around/on the cork.
8) Bring the top handle back away to remove the worm, while holding the cork with the side handles.
That works, but the side handles don't always squeeze tight enough to hold the cork there.

Okay, the ad says "3 seconds". I put closer to ten seconds, plus five more to remove the cork (if it grips right), or 30 seconds more if it doesn't grip the cork to remove it. Still, this is the easiest and best corkscrew I've ever used, and I'd say it's WELL worth the price. The "gift set" is nice, but personally, I don't think it's worth the extra price compared to just the Rabbit without the gift set. I do, however, recommend the Metrokane "Save-the-Wine" Vacuum Pump.

Oh, one more thing -- I've heard it doesn't work well on the new plastic-style "corks", but I haven't tried it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A veritable feat of engineering!
I bought the Metrokane Rabbit as a Christmas gift for my parents and it has since become the most indispensible item in our kitchen. We drink wine every night in our house, and have been through many a corkscrew, but absolutely nothing compares to this. The Rabbit makes short work of opening a bottle of wine for even the puniest-armed of us, and indeed, has caused one or two scuffles at dinner over who gets to open the next bottle of wine! Three swift, smooth movements will open even the most stubborn bottle, and with none of the grunting, puffing and red-faced struggling that often accompanies this manouvre. There is a particular brand of white wine I drink that is next to impossible to open if you have left the bottle to chill with the cork in it, and I actually broke 3 "traditional" corkscrews trying to open one single bottle of this. Well, in the highest praise I can summon for the Rabbit, I have not had a problem with one of these bottles since I bought it. If you are a wine-drinker, or even just a lover of gadgets, buy this - now!

5-0 out of 5 stars I finally received one!!!
I love this corkscrew system. My husband just bought it for our anniversary. I have loved this corkscrew, since using it at a winery I work at in Tennessee. It never failed us and was a time saver during big events, like concerts and tastings that required a lot of bottles to be opened at a rapid rate. Definetly a must have for serious wine buffs.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST of the BEST wine opener set!
We've been through many wine openers living in both the Northern California and Virginia wine country, but NOTHING compares to the ease and smoothness of the Metrokane Rabbit wine opener, AND it's a complete set with an extra screw, spout protector, wax remover, foil cutter, and a stopper! You can't get it for a better price (not to mention free SUPER SAVER shipping and no tax!) All our friends want one...they make GREAT gifts for GREAT friends! Get it and you'll love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great corkscrew, great gift.
I've been using these Metrokanes for several years now and I wouldn't want to use anything else. They make absolutely anyone look like a pro opening a bottle of wine, while of course at the same time avoiding the occasional broken cork plunged into the bottle horror.
Whenever we have guests, they always comment on the Metrokane, and as a result I've found it makes a perfect gift. In particular, this silver model is extremely attractive. ... Read more

Great for a dorm room or office, this cordless kettle lets you enjoy tea, coffee, or even dried soups at any time and without a range. And it's detachable from its power base for convenient pouring. The unobtrusive power base shuts off when the kettle is removed from the platform, and the concealed heating element never comes into contact with the water, keeping it from tasting flat or scalded. Made from high-quality stainless steel, the mirror-finished kettle is attractive and rust-resistant, and its 36-inch cord can be hidden in the base, making for easy, cord-free storage. --Madeleine Miller ...

  • Cord storage in base; three-year limited warranty
  • Convenient cordless operation provides mobility
  • Sturdy stainless-steel construction
  • Hidden heating element means better tasting water
  • Automatic shutoff ensures high level of safety

5-0 out of 5 stars It's not like the teapot calling the kettle black
I've owned Russell Hobbs auto-off teapots and the older Cuisinart auto-off corded teapot. This is a third generation pot for me and I love this one best! There is a tiny light on the bottom front which let's you know when it is "on", the hidden element is another nice feature which makes cleaning tough calcium deposits from water much easier. The best feature by far is that it's cordless so you can carry it over to another location like I need to do when mixing jello or preparing microwave oatmeal. It's got a nice new design too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fast and attractive
I have been through two plastic electric kettles in the last few years. Both of them eventually fell apart as the plastic became brittle. Long before that the white plastic became yellow. This stainless steel kettle is well worth the little extra you pay. If you've never had an electric kettle you don't know how much time you're wasting waiting for water to boil!

1-0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Handle
We used this kettle everyday for about 2 years and were very happy with it, until this week, when my husband was pouring boiling water from it, and the handle fell off. There's no sign of rivets or screws being used to secure the handle to the kettle. It looks like they just superglued it on, which can be very dangerous. Like I said, we've had this particular model for about 2 years, so maybe the manufacturer has redesigned the handle on its more recent products. If not, for safety reasons, I would not recommend this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super fast, have tea anywhere
I love this tea kettle. It's super-fast, and because it's electic, you can keep it anyplace and enjoy tea--or whatever else you need to brew with hot water.

5-0 out of 5 stars Leave Your Tools at Home... This is more than Enough
I've had one of these for a little less than a year now. I'm responsible for the tech support of a huge division in a major college in the New York City area, and this is the only tool I bring with me. I've used it fro everything from fixing computers, to repairing typewriters. It has paid for itself a hundred times over. Highly recommended!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Handier than I expected!
I'm a geek, but you probably wouldn't pick me out in a lineup (not that I've been in a lineup, but...). Anyway, I must say that the Cybertool Pocket Knife really is as great as other people say. It's easy to use, and I find myself carrying it with me far more than any other tool I have, just because it is so verstile.

5-0 out of 5 stars Geeks must-have
Okay, I'm not the geek, my husband is, but I bought this knife for him months ago and he's not been to work without it yet. He is a software developer and does a bit of work with hardware as well. He says it's a great tool for anyone doing detail work with computers, eyeglasses or musical instruments. It has come in handy with (his glasses, obviously) and my flute. We've also found uses for it with kid's toys (getting those damned battery compartments open), cell phones, aquariums, baby monitors, stereo equipment, and as a handy-dandy package and letter opener. You don't need to be a geek to apprecaite all that!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Tech Toolset and Swiss Army Knife Combined
Everyone should have a Swiss Army knife, as they come in so useful, especially on the move. The question usually is: which one? Well, for me it was the Cybertool, mainly because it has all the features of the standard Swiss Army knife, but incorporates some precision tools, which comes in great for me at work, I just keep it in my case with my Laptop. One of the best Swiss Army Knives on offer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Geekgirl's delight
As owner of an all-female IT support company, I purchased this tool for all my techs for Christmas last year. We're all absolutely enchanted with it. Leatherman's tools are ok, but if you work on Compaqs you have to have the Torx bits. We've already got cell phones, pagers and pdas hanging off our belts, and there's just no room on a gal's belt to add a Leatherman and the toolbit accessory. The cybertool fits in a pocket or purse and gets the job done while maintaining our sleek appearance. One caveat, however - if you leave this thing at a client site it will NOT be there when you return for it!! So now I'm up here looking at the Cybertool 34 - we'll see how it stacks up against the original. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product!
After my uber-negative review of the Cuisinart Grind & Brew, I did what I said I'd do and purchased the Bodum.Wow!The coffee tastes great, it's piping hot and the machine is an absolute delight.Washing the pot itself is a little unnerving because of the electric components in the base, but cleaning the coffee hopper is a no-brainer.Plus, it's pretty fun to watch the brewing process - a mini science experiment in the kitchen every morning!My husband and I are both very satisfied with this, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Mess
We are of two minds - my wife and I - over the relative merits of the Bodum Santos electric vacuum coffee pot. I see an evocative design that's equal parts mad-scientist chemistry set and Frank Gehry angular assemblage. Herself sees... a mess.

Granted, the eSantos doesn't have the drop-dead convenience of one of those push-button pod machines. And it's not the grinding, measuring and filling thing... we're more than used to that. It's the post-brew mess that herself frowns at.

Like a great many vacuum pots, the eSantos has a permanent filter. [Okay... semi permanent. Bodum recommends replacing it every so often.] This filter is a very fine mesh screen; it allows dissolved coffee solids and oils through, making for an exceptionally flavorful cup with lots of body, and it does so without choking on coffee finings, a problem that I nearly always experienced with my vintage Cory glass vacuum pot and its permanent glass filter rod.

The net effect is - of course - a mess. No denying it. There's no paper filter to toss in the trash bin [or compost heap, if you're of the composty ilk]. Instead, after the brewer has cooled it's necessary to rinse the coffee grounds out of the brew globe, and then to wash it. Yes, wash it. By hand, no less. Matter of fact, if you've brewed especially fresh coffee that wasn't roasted to death [and you are, aren't you?] you'll find a lovely, oily frothy mess left behind.

Want convenience? Get one of those push-button things. But if you want really great coffee it's hard to beat a vacuum pot. Bodum's update on the classic vac is about as good as it gets.

5-0 out of 5 stars better, faster, cheaper, and easy on the eyes
this coffemaker is absolutely the best affordable coffee brewing technology on the market. 20 ounces of water in; 20 ounces of coffee out. for my money, i use a lot less coffee per cup than with drip. i've heard complaints that the mini santos is difficult to use at first, but it took 3 minutes to read the instructions and 6 minutes later i was enjoying my first cup. cleaning is easier than a french press, and because everything is plastic, no cracked or broken beekers. what i admire most about the santos is the simplicity and economy of design, which matches the technology perfectly. no frilly ornamentation or chrome switches. the integrity and integration of technololgy, design, materials, and price tag are what home appliances should all be about. bodum delivers on this promise.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sleek, Good-looking, and Affordable model it is, but...
I was impressed the first time this baby brewed the coffee.It is fun watching the vacuum process, but no fun to clean up.To get a decent strong cup, you have to pour in more coffee than average and this makes me stop more frequent at the coffeeshop.Unfortunately,my unit performed great the first time, but it failed later on and just spilled the coffee all over my kitchen (I guess it had something to do with temp-controller inside that heats the water way too hot)..That's why I gave it 3 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars High maintenance, and worth it
I've had my mini-Bodum for over a year now.It has functioned perfectly; the only defect was that the flip-top lid broke off some time ago.Since it's pretty much superfluous, it doesn't bother me: as soon as the coffee is brewed, I transfer it to a thermos anyway.Who needs a lid?

As has been noted, there is a good bit of fuss involved in preparing and operating this coffeemaker.The coffee, however, is sensational - assuming you start with good quality beans.(Garbage in, garbage out is a principle that holds for coffeemakers as well as for computers.)

So count me another satisfied customer - with a unit that has worked well, day in and day out for about fifteen months.I wish it were easier to use, but I've never had such good coffee at home, outside of a French press.

(And by the way, to the person who complained about cleaning: all you have to do is, once a month, toss in a little baking soda after you've rinsed the pot, and let it sit for an hour.The buildup will rinse right off; there's no need to scrub.) ... Read more

Austria's Riedel is the world's premier manufacturer of wine glasses. Made of 24-percent lead crystal, the Vinum series of glasses are the first machine-made wine glasses to be developed uniquely for each type of wine. Since their introduction in 1986, these wine glasses have had a large influence on the wine culture.

The glasses in this set of four were specifically shaped to highlight the fruit in full-bodied red wines with high acidity and moderate tannin, such as Barbaresco, Barolo, Barbera, Red Burgundy, Gamay, Nebbiolo, and Pinot Noir. The mouth of the Pinot Noir glasses draws wine to the areas of the tongue that perceive sweetness, highlighting the fruit and mellowing the acidity. The large bowl provides room for the wine's rich bouquet to unfold. Each glass stands 8-1/4 inches high and holds 24-3/4 ounces of wine. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite all-around wine glass
OK, maybe you know that Riedel crafts a separate shape for every variety of wine under the sun - and that this one is designed for Pinot Noir or red Burgundy. As a devoted fan of those wines I can tell you that the glass really does make them taste (and more importantly smell) much finer; letting you truly appreciate the uniquely aromatic character of that grape. So much of the detail rises up from this wide, tapered bowl that they'll "tear a lesser wine apart" to quote some of the literature.

Snobbery aside, I have to say that these are also my favorite all-around wine glasses. I find that the aroma of all my wines is more pleasing to me in these glasses. The bowl is designed to make swirling your wine virtually risk-free, even if you're hovering over (or wearing) something that stains easily while you madly agitate the glass. It also leaves you free to wander through a dinner party or spend a crazed dinner hour chasing the kids around the table, all without worrying that an absent-minded moment will empty your glass and add to the dog's already worrisome drinking problem.

This is the "house glassware" in my house now, as it should be in yours.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great but be aware they are large
These glasses are, like all the Vinum series, beautiful stemware. The quality is immediately apparent, and the fact that they are crystal means they stay cleaner than glass and don't pick up smells from their contents (and are easier to hand-wash). People have already commented on the shape being so good for tasting reds.

Something that should be mentioned is that the shape and large size, which are designed to allow the aroma of the wine to reach your nose and palate properly and to allow good oxidation, can be misleading. These glasses hold--if you were to fill them-- 24 ounces of wine. Novice vinophile beware! :) I think maybe 1/3 full or less is about right.

Amazon should do a better job making it easy to compare the size of the different Vinum series glasses. If you haven't seen them in person you might get quite a shock if you ordered either these or the Bordeaux (22 oz). The photos make all the glasses appear the same size.

The reason I mention it is that if you aren't going to drink the specific wines these glasses are intended for, you will probably do better with one of the other Vinums as a more general-purpose red glass. (Chianti/Zin, perhaps?) They take up a lot of room. Extremely wonderful for their intended purpose, though...

5-0 out of 5 stars What a difference a glass makes!
I surprised my wife with the Riedel Vinum Burgundy/Pinot Noir glasses as a Christmas gift. We proceeded to set-up a "taste test" comparing our regular wine glasses to the new Riedel. The other reviews are correct! The difference in all aspects of tasting were remarkable! This will become our "every day" glass.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Glass Does Make a Difference
Ok, I'm wary of everyone that will read this and, like me in the past, think anyone who believes the glass wine is consumed from can have a bearing on it's taste and enjoyment...but IT DOES! Try them, you'll see. I especially love the thin almost flexible nature of the rim of each glass. Cheers.

This two-piece cutlery set includes the two hardest workingknives in Asian cooking. The 3-inch straight-edge paring knife peelsfruits and root vegetables for cooking. The 7-inch Japanese santokuknife--a cross between a butcher knife and chef's knife in Europeancooking—-splits, chops, dices, and slices meats, vegetables, and fruit.Like all santokus, this one has a straight edge for precise choppingand also has a hollow edge (with indentations the size of fingerprintsrunning along the edge of the blade) so that foods don't stick to theblade during slicing.

Part of Wüsthof's popular Classic line of cutlery, these knives have avery traditional design. Blades are hand forged from high-carbon steelso they retain their sharp edges longer and are easier to resharpen,plus they include a stain-resistant alloy. Blades are also ground andpolished by computer to ensure perfect tapering from tip to bolster. Asignature feature of Wüsthof knives, the weighted bolster gives theseknives the perfect heft. For balance, full tangs extend through thesynthetic handles and are triple-riveted for strength. --CristinaVaamonde ... Read more

Great knife set. You can chop just like Rachael does, which is why I bought this knife. My only complaint is that the tip has bent slightly and will break if I attempt to straighten.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super-thin slicing knives
These Santoku knives have the fantastic Kullenschliff, also called the Granton, edge for extremely finely-honed thin slicing. They slice quickly into whatever width you want, from slivers to less thin pieces, with only a modicum of practice. The sharp flat cutting edge, safely lower than the handle, makes for an easy, comfortable grip. These knives have multiple uses--not just slicing for Asian-style food, nor, for that matter, just for thin slicing. One can chop, dice, or slice safely and quickly with these finely made instruments. I have a large collection of Wusthof knives, but this style is one of my favorites and most frequently used. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars I Heart This Waffle Maker
I bought this waffle maker for my friend and we both enjoy it. The red light/green light cooking system works well and is easy to understand. The six different settings allow you to make any kind of waffle from gooey to fluffy to dark and crispy. The non-stick surfaces make it pretty easy to get the waffles out and make it easy to clean. My only word of caution is that the metal outside does become hot when cooking, so watch your fingers and definitely supervise children. It also comes with different batter recipes. I think the heart shapes are more fun and cuter than the regular circle waffles (but what can I say, I'm a girl). I would definitely recommend this product if you want a simple, cute waffle maker that's easy to use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Classy, easy to use!
This is great. I love the brushed stainless steel. It looks really classy. The heart shaped (or flower-shaped if you keep it whole) is fun and good for special occasions as well as every day. These make good sized waffles- most kids could eat one whole one. Also, the recommended batter amount makes a waffle that is more thin than thick. That is good, because they are more on the crispy side and less likely to be doughey.

The only problem (and it's a slight one) is once you put the batter in after preheating, the waffle maker doesn't register that there is batter in the maker until several moments later. You need to make sure to press down the lid firmly and just know that it will resume a red light and recognize that it is cooking in a few seconds.

There are several fun recipes included with the maker, from chocolate to whole-wheat waffles. The recipe for basic waffles is delicious! This waffle maker been a great purchase for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Waffles Every Time!
There isn't anything I don't like about this Waffle Maker.

It uses a red light/green light system to tell you when the waffles are ready (other than a noisy timer like other waffle makers). What I liked best about the Cuisinart is that it had 6 setting for lightness/darkness. I like my waffles on the dark side, so I was glad my waffle maker gave me this option.

With it's non-stick surface the waffles come right out, and clean-up is a snap.

The heart shape is fun for kids too! I'd never go back to a regular square or round shaped waffle. You can pull these apart into individual heart shapes or leave them together for one large flower shape.

Equipped with a newly designed, long-lasting screw, this famouslever-action cork puller can now open 2,000 bottles of wine uninterrupted (meaning youdon't need to replace the screw). That alone makes this a great gift for wineenthusiasts. But the great-gift factor ratchets up because the wine opener comesin a handsome black case as part of a set with Screwpull's foil cutter.Operating the wine opener is a kick. Swing the lever open, grip the bottleneckwith the handles, swing the lever closed, and watch the screw penetrate thecork. Now take the lever back to the open position, and the cork comes out ofthe bottle. As an added flourish, you can use the handles to grip the cork whileyou swing the lever open again, pulling the Teflon-coated screw from the corkand softly into the operator's hand. This tool is precisely engineered, andcomes with a two-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Complements traditional wine
Traditional wine bottles are sealed with corks. The Screwpull does a fine job with only two simple lever movements of removing the cork. Wax-sealed corks are another matter. Wax is a challenge for all types of conventional wine openers including this one. For operation with wax I recommend removing the screw every 10 bottles and cleaning off the wax in order to preserve its slippery Teflon surface. When the screw gets coated with wax it is resistive to penetrating a cork, thus it exerts vertical pressure on the cork and drives it inside the bottle - not a good thing when your guests are wearing a white top and you're opening a bottle of red - keep those screws clean, Teflon or not.

Other than the wax issue the Screwpull works great and is a nice tool to have in the kitchen. If we all stayed away from high production wines with those waxed bottles the world would be a better place and the Screwpull would be an absolute dream. The Screwpull is well-built and sturdy - highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get better than this
This is it--the end of the wine opener line. It takes about 2 minutes to get the hang of gracefully gripping the top of a wine bottle with the handles, and when to flip the lever up (which leads the teflon screw to do an effortless swan dive through the cork) vs. flipping it down (to extract the cork), but once you have it down, all other openers seem skimpy and pale. To pop the cork off the screw's tip, you repeat the same motions, with the handles in "closed" position: lever up, lever down. The cork plops onto the nearest surface. The humble foil cutter may seem like an accessory, but it's an essential: it usually takes about a half twist around the top to lift foil; if the cork is capped with wax instead, you don't even need the cutter--the screw slips right through wax. From foil to cork-plop takes about 10 seconds. It works on the nastiest, most resistant corks (even crumblers and stubborn synthetics). If you're entertaining, and opening more than one bottle, let your guests see you open the first--without fail, they'll want to try it. Designers love it. Engineers like to figure out what the gear mechanism is up to. Wine connoisseurs already own it. I received mine as a gift, but if it ever disappears, I'll spring for the high-altitude price. Individual pieces in this gift set are also worth owning, including the spare teflon screw--which is one of the keys to the opener's success. (After 6 months my original screw is nowhere near needing replacing.) I only wish the name of this wonderful thing matched the elegance of its design. Note: the Metrokane Rabbit is based on the same design for a notably lower price, so it's a good option--but I've tried both, and for me this is just It--it's sturdier, has a great hinged storage box that fits in a drawer, and there are no ifs. (The one time I used a Rabbit, it wouldn't let go of the extracted cork.)

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother
Worked fine for about a dozen bottles, then broke. Same thing happened with one my mother-in-law bought for herself. I would not recommend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb, but worth the money?
I love using this thing. It works perfectly. Takes up a little more room in the drawer than other corkscrews but it's flawless at extraction. But is it worth [the money paid]?? I don't think so. I found one elsewhere for half that price.

5-0 out of 5 stars What was I thinking?
My wife gave me a Screwpull many years ago. I must have pulled over 2,000 corks without changing the worm. One day, I had a problem with a cork & used brute force - so no more Screwpull.

I new that my wife had paid [$$$] & that the Rabbit (at half that price) was getting good press; so I made my second mistake.

The Rabbit started out good but the worm began to stick after a dozen corks. Another problem: when the cork didn't come out easily, the Rabbit pinched my fingers as I released the cork.

Thankfully, after 9 months, the Rabbit gave up the ghost. The worm unravelled & couldn't be removed.

I have just received a new Screwpull from Amazon. At [$$] it is competitively priced, but price is not the point. I expect the Screwpull to last indefinitely. I have learned my lesson - don't use brute force. The worm is now supposedly good for 2,000 pulls. Three or four worms should see me through.

I have seen some negative reviews for both products, but I can't identify with the problems attributed to the Screwpull. However, the more numerous negative Rabbit reviews reflect my own experience.

I have two tips. When dealing with wax seals, remove the wax before using the corkscrew. If the worm meets resistance in a cork, revert to an old fashioned corkscrew - the cork may be a high-tech product for which neither product is suited.

For those who have never used this type of product, I can say that after 10 years I have never had a cork break.

For those thinking of reviewing either product - wait until you have removed 50 corks. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best set of stainless steel knives I've owned so far.
Oh my gosh! They are sleek, elegant, and very managable. I thought at first, "no, don't pay that much for a set of knives that will eventually rust". I'm glad I did. I've had mine for about one year. I've had similar brands and all they did were rust. Yuk! I suggest that you go for it. Take the plunge and purchase a set of these knives. You will not regret that you did.

4-0 out of 5 stars Farberware knives
These knives are good. I could cut ripe tomatoes without mushing it. The are handy, good looking & very easy to clean.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice knives but careful
Had the knives two weeks, and was really impressed by the look feel and cut. However, after a couple of washes, rust spots began appearing. I suppose if I washed them all by hand and dried them off right away instead of air drying this wouldn't have happened(my fault..(?) ). I expected better, since I've had cheap K-mart knives for 10 years that didn't rust. I contacted farberware and they did say that if I return the rusted knives they would exchange them, with a turn around time of 6-8 weeks.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good low cost product
I recieved this as a wedding gift and I really like it. The knives are good quality and are sharp. They will stay nice as long as you take care of them. The steak knives work really well. I would recommend buying this product if you are on a somewhat limited budget but still want a good quality product.

The ultimate in beautiful, high-performance cookware, All-Clad's innovative Copper Core collection combines the unexcelled heat conductivity of copper with the easy maintenance of stainless steel. Crafted in a unique five-ply construction, the cookware contains a core of pure copper that spreads heat quickly and evenly across the bottoms of pots and pans and all the way up the sides. Aluminum layers bond the copper to stainless-steel exteriors and interiors. Enhancing the cookware's appearance, a stripe of the copper core elegantly encircles the gleaming, mirror-finish exterior. The interior is highly polished so it's stick- as well as corrosion-resistant. Rolled edges on pots and pans help prevent drips during pouring and ensure tight-fitting lids.

This seven-piece set of Copper Core cookware consists of a 10-inch fry pan, a 2-quart saucepan with lid, a 3-quart sauté pan with lid, and an 8-quart stockpot with lid. Polished 18/10 stainless-steel pan and lid handles are riveted for strength and grooved on the top for comfort. The lids' handles, the pans' long handles (holed for hanging on a hook or peg), and the stockpot's loop handles stay cool on the stovetop but won't be harmed by an oven's heat. Hand washing this cookware will preserve the jewel-like beauty during its lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond. --Fred Brack

3-0 out of 5 stars Very nice pans marred by uneven lids
We bought the seven piece set, then got the two quart saucepan on ebay. This cookware performs very well, but two of the three lids don't sit evenly on their pans. I'm not sure if they're slightly warped or what, but they rock slightly and don't make a good seal. This may be a minor flaw, but for what they cost it's unacceptable. We're trying to decide if it's worth the hassle of returning the lids under the warranty. If you're shopping for this cookware in a store, be sure to check the lids for flatness.

5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate basic set
This set rocks. I had a thirty-year old set of Farberware (hand-me-downs) with warped bottoms - it used to take nearly half an hour for water to simmer even at my electric range on full-blast. So frustrating that I thought that my range was broken. When the repair guy said that all my pots and pans were warped (duh!), I ditched my old set and got this set. A world of difference! The copper core heats evenly and beautifully, water comes back to a rolling boil seconds after pasta is added, etc., etc. I couldn't be happier. I decided to get the copper-core line instead of the all-stainless because the rolled lip allows for easier pouring but in hindsight, I'm not sure it was worth the few hundred dollars difference. Whatever, I'm a happy cook!

5-0 out of 5 stars Always and forever
A professional chef who is a neighbor recommended these to me when we had our kitchen remodeled and I wanted to splurge on some new cookware. "Buy these, and you'll never need anything else,' he said. Lord, he was SO right. Lids that fit, handles that magically stay cool, surfaces that are easy to clean, even and quick heating...who could ask for more?
Don't bother with any other brands.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finnally rolled the lip of the sauce pans
I love All clad pans, but most don't have a rolled lip, and these do. While I'm not sure that this layer of copper is worth the extra money, having a rolled lip on the sauce pan means it doesn't drip when you pour from it. They should do this to the whole line of pans.

The exposed copper looks like more of a marketing thing than functional. How else can you show that there is copper, which serious cooks all "know" is best, without it?

Other than that buy good pans when you are young, they'll last a lifetime.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'd really give it a 4.5...
Best performance cookware all clad's made.. well, maybe second to the all copper one. HOwever, given that it takes away the cleaning problems of copper cookware, this rocks. The only few things I don't like is the lack of a bigger stockpot and that there's still some copper showing so I think there's some heavy cleaning involved. But I guess that's the only way to differentiate from the Master/Steel version. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good product for the money
My husband bought me this massager for my birthday. I'm an elementary school teacher, and my feet are always tired and sore.

In response to a few other reviews here, I must admit that the machine doesn't heat as much as I'd like, and the cord is about a foot too short, but I really do consider this a good value for the price.

The foot pad area is large enough to accommodate feet even bigger than mine (!), and the massager, especially when set on high, hits all the right sopt, just on the bottom of the arch, and that sore spot beneath the toes. After a good 15 minutes of "regular" massage, I like to curl my toes under or contort my feet sideways, to get even more coverage!

No, this isn't a miracle cure for tired feet. But it's a nice, relaxing end to a hard day. I recommend this product to anyone with realistic expectations of its benefits, but who still is willing to take a chance on a nice, relaxing product.

5-0 out of 5 stars No more cold feet in the winter!
If you are looking for a dual purpose item, this will serve you well as a food massager and foot warmer. When I first placed this under my desk, it rattled around a bit and scared my cat, who ran terrified down the hall. But, don't fear...once you place a towel or carpet under the unit, it is fine and very quite. You just hear a gentle hum.

You will be amazed at how light your legs feel after just a few minutes. All the controls can be turned on and off with your toes! That alone is a great feature. This unit has special "Toe-Tap" features. You can turn on the lo/hi vibration intensity button with your big toe of your left foot. The Heat on/off button can be pressed with your right big toe and then the massage on/off button is easy to turn on with your heel. You can also turn the lo/hi and on/off button with your heel

The unit feels warmer when you turn the massage function off and could be used in those cold days of winter when you just don't feel like wearing slippers. Once you turn off the infrared heat function, you will still feel the heat for quite a while.

The massage platform has raised accunodles (raised bumps in the plastic) for the stimulation of the soles of your feet.

The instructions recommend only using this unit for about 15 minutes or less. I found 3 minutes was a good amount of time and produced the desired light leg feeling. This is a unit you use while seated and standing on it can cause damage. They also recommend using the unit with "socked feet" and never with shoes.

The perfect gift for anyone who sits at their desk for most of the day or for those friends who stand all day and just want to come home, sit on the couch and relax.

This unit will fit nicely under your bed (or some couches) or you might just want to keep it permanently under your desk! That is where my "Foot Pro" is going to live.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh this is good!
I recently decided to indulge myself a little bit. Hey I'm 42 and have been raisng my kids, (and husband) diligently for a long time now. So on my birthday I slurged a bit on Amazon. I bought(and am highly recommending all of these): this amazing foot massager- heaven, singing lessons on CD- Voice Lessons To Go by Vaccarino because I was just tired of hiding my voice when we all would sing in the car, The Artist Way by Cameron so I could feel some sort of creativity for myself again, and the New Sex Now video (well that was for me and my husband). Well, happy happy. We should all splurge on ourselves just a bit sometimes. Aren't we worth it?

This is a great massager.

There's nothing I like better than lounging around and getting a foot massage from my ho-medic while eating a nice ho-made sandwich.

3-0 out of 5 stars I'd rather stick my feet in a hot bucket of Jello
For the price, this product isn't too bad, but don't expect too much from it. The "massage" basically amounts to it vibrating a lot, which can feel somewhat nice, but not as much as I had expected. The unit also doesn't put off much heat at all. You can get more heat from sticking your feet near a light bulb.

However, being able to control the product with my toes was fairly nice, and I do use it occasionally. I just don't think it should have been labeled as a"Pro Ultra." There's nothing really "ultra" about it. ... Read more

This compact 1,200-watt machine automatically produces espresso with the push of a button. Easy-to-understand controls put espressos, cappuccinos, and lattes a fingertip away, and the stainless-steel boiler produces two cups of espresso in just seconds. An electronic control lets you select the amount of espresso brewed each time, from 2 to 8 ounces. Other noteworthy features include a removable 30-serving water tank with an intake water filter and water-level display, an antidrip system, a patented filter for thick crema, a die-cast filter holder for minimum heat loss, and a frothing attachment on the steam nozzle for cappuccino foam and lattes. A coffee tamper and measuring spoon accompany the 11-3/4-by-8-3/4-by-8-inch machine, which is clad in hard, bright plastic. --Fred Brack

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Quality Espresso/Cappuccino at Home
I'm been using the Chamonix by BRIEL and absolutely love the machine. We had the machine up and running in 5 minutes (that included: rinsing the reservoir and attachments, plugging in the electrial cord, pouring the water into the reservoir and turning it on). Every part of the espresso maker is working wonderfully. The reasons for purchasing this machine was so I could have a reservoir of water and also to use the espresso pods in order to make numerous individual cups of espresso for our dinner parties. It is very easy to clean afterwards, and in just a minute or two after turning it on, just put the espresso pod in the pod holder, insert and turn, press the button, and in 20-30 seconds you have a cup of espresso. I am very satisfied with the product and would encourage others to purchase it as well.

We especially liked the auto espresso flow feature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Know what you're getting, and you'll be thrilled
I've had my Chamonix for two and a half years, and I love it. I use it for at least three shots a day, and I've only had to take the screen off for cleaning once or twice.

This is a great machine for personal use. Based on other reviews I've read here, I see that some people are disappointed about some aspects of the machine, which I'll try to clarify:

-The frother nozzle is hard to clean. In fact, I don't clean it, and it hasn't been a problem. If you think about it, you have scalding hot steam coming out every time you froth some milk, so I'm not worried about germs.

-You shouldn't leave the machine on for longer than you need to. This is not an always-on model like my rich friend has.

-You cannot brew directly into most mugs; I use a small enamel cup. Shot glasses also work, but tend to cool the espresso too much because glass has such a high heat capacity. This is not unusual for espresso machines; most commercial espresso places brew into shot glasses.

-The steam nozzle drips like crazy while you're brewing. I keep a spoonrest underneath to catch the drips.

-You have to hit the brew button after foaming to let out the super-hot steam enough that the coffee doesn't get scalded (if you foam before pulling the shots, which I do).

-The basket needs to be filled to the proper level. You should loosely scoop it about 7/8 full, then tamp it with the built-in tamper. You should get a firm but not hard surface on the grounds. If you can't press the top of the basket against the machine, it's too full. If the tamper doesn't make a complete disc on the top of the grounds, it's not full enough. This machine is not meant to be given a hard-packed pellet of espresso grounds, nor is it meant to be used with less than a full basket.

-This machine does not produce a hard grounds puck like most machines. I believe this is because of the kind of filter/gasket combination is has to give a good crema. Therefore, when emptying it between shots, I recommend rinsing it in the sink rather than banging it over a puck can. I never take the basket out of the handle, and I haven't had any problems with it. If you grind your coffee right, it won't clog your kitchen drain. If you're getting a clogged drain from doing this, you're probably also getting bad coffee from too coarse a grind.

-Don't let it run out of water or it makes a horrible sound. I've done this at least five times, but it's never caused damage.

-The shot size is not consistent. I always watch the pull and stop it when it's reached the amount I want.

So, as you can see, this is not a pro machine, and I'd probably be annoyed by the above characteristics if I'd dropped eight hundred bucks on this thing. But this is an inexpensive $150 machine, and you can't beat that with a stick for a pump machine.

If you see other reviewers that said this machine doesn't make great espresso, they're doing it wrong, and it's really not hard. You just have to not pack the ground so tightly.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in performance
I found the Chamonix to work quickly, but the quality of the coffee it produced was not satisfactory. I currently use a cheap Melitta that makes a much better latte. I used the exact same grind and fresh coffee beans, so this is not a problem.

The filter holds water and leaks when you remove it, and no cup I own will fit under it without taking the shelf off completely. The filter leaked the first time, so I started over with less coffee. No leaking but watery coffee. Further attemps with increasing, decreasing coffee and tamp pressure also unsuccessful. I ended up using my old machine and adding expresso to my mug to make it drinkable.

The frother is at a poor angle, I can't get any of my tall mugs under it without picking the machine up and raising the entire level of the container. I tried angling my cup with the machine at the sink edge, and it was still not possible without spilling some of the frothed milk.

I have shipped this machine back and thank Amazon for making it so easy to do so. I really wanted this machine to be the best I ever owned.

3-0 out of 5 stars great coffee - mediocre build quality
The coffee tasted wonderful, but after a year and a half of daily use the components (which were admitedly cheap-ish from the start) began to give way. Some of the dial labels rubbed off almost immediatly after purchase. We replaced gasket after gasket on the frother (which can pop off, spraying hot steam). Cleaning the frother tip well is inconvenient. An indentation in the filter cup designed to keep it from rotating tended to cause it to get stuck.

This would be an OK machine for light use (others in its price range don't look any better) but for serious coffee drinking spend an extra hundred or two on something more robust.

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME - Right out of the box.
After much searching and pricing on Ebay, I found this little gem. I received this today and already made 2 perfect cups of Cappuccino. The directions were pretty straightforward. I ran through a few plain water runs to clean out and was ready to go. I was surprised how quickly it gets ready to brew, and how easy it is to operate. The clearing is small, and you can only fit a smaller cup under the brew handle. I knew that going into the purchase. 1-2 cups is all you can make at a time, but if you need to make more, it is ready in about a minute. My first cup was delicious. Great Crema, nice froth... PERFECT! I can't wait for tomorrow morning :-) As it gets older I will update if there are any changes. If it's in your price range, pick one up. ... Read more

Steaks, burgers, hot dogs, fish, pork chops, French toast, sandwiches, hash browns, vegetables... The list goes on and on of foods and meals this compact countertop grill can cook on both sides simultaneously. A recipe booklet makes that clear, and even shows how a version of beef stroganoff can be prepared between the grill's top and bottom cooking grids in minutes. When the whole family sits down for a meal, or hungry friends turn up, the top opens flat, doubling the cooking surface to 216 square inches. (Each grid's effective cooking surface measures about 12-1/2 by 7 inches; closed, the grill--made of hard, bright, black plastic--measures 16-1/2 by 13 inches overall.) Other fine features: fats drain into dishwasher-safe drip tray for healthful cooking; timer shuts off grill automatically when cooking time elapses; dishwasher-safe, nonstick grids remove for easy cleanup; and cord wraps into bottom for storage. --Fred Brack ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Beats George's Hands Down
We subscribe to Consumer Reports and read all about these types of grills. The George Foreman and the Hamilton Beach MealMaker Express Grill seam to be the most popular but the HB beats ALL the competition hands down!
Many people who already have the George Foreman grill all have told us they hate it because it's so difficult to clean. With the removable grills on the HB model, this problem simply does not exist. We love how fast this grill cooks chicken and steak. The best part is that the meats are so juicy and delicious.
I highly recommend the Hamilton Beach MealMaker Express Grill.

4-0 out of 5 stars George is hotter but Hamilton Beach still wins
When i first got the grill, i was very disappointed. Whilst it's larger and has the removable grids, it was not as hot as my old George Foreman and it seemed as if my foods were steaming. However, after several months, i've discovered a few secrets to cooking on it and am much happier.
1. preheat it for a minimum of 5 minutes, maybe 8.
2. don't overload it all at once
3. if your food is very lean (or skinless) it won't sear well right away. Marinading will help. Also, if you spray your meat with Pam or drizzle alittle olive oil on it (sounds gross but what the heck) it'll help sear it.
Bottom line is: Even though my old George cooked hotter and faster, my new Hamilton Beach remains champ due to ease of cleaning. I love the convenience of popping out those grids!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best grills out there
We're on our second Hamilton Beach grill and we love its simplicity and versatility. As a dad who does most of the weekday dinners, this grill has helped me go from Good to Great, at least in the eyes of my wife and 3 picky kids.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that in our experience, the nonstick coating wears off rather quickly, and it then becomes a slight pain to clean. I'm willing to concede that could happen because we might use it three times a day (breakfast sausage, lunch hot dogs*, dinner salmon) and four or five days a week. In any case, you can order replacement grills by mail -- no web orders :-( -- from the company for about $13 each.

Do yourself and your family a favor: get THIS grill AND a good book (like "Grill Power") on how to marinate and grill steaks, chops, chicken, lamb, fish, shrimp, scallops, etc.
You'll wonder why you didn't do so a long time ago.

*Even if you're not a hot-dog lover, once you've had them or kielbasa grilled, not boiled, you'll never want to go back.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the BEST
I have never owned this kind of grill before - I don't know how I lived without it before. I use it every day - It's fast, easy to use, easy to clean and makes great tasting food. IF YOU ARE ON THE ATKINS DIET - or THE SOUTH BEACH DIET or any diet in which you have to prepare a lot of protein - chicken, fish, meat, etc - then this is a MUST HAVE grill. It makes that food taste fabulous with nothing added. And you don't have to cook it for an hour. Grilled Chicken breast takes 5 (five) minutes! Same for hamburger or steak. Not having time to cook is no longer an excuse for me to eat junk food.

This grill is GREAT. I cannot say enough good things about it.
I bought mine some months ago from Amazon - and though mine still works great - I came back to get another one as a backup - just in case anything ever happens to this one. I use this grill every single day - and sometimes twice a day.

And it's totally non-stick - it's even more non-stick than most non-stick pans. I'm not sure how they did that - but I'm impressed. GO FOR IT!

5-0 out of 5 stars Could not live without it
I have had mine for several months now and use it frequently. It is excellent for meats and fatty fish (salmon and the like) and does a good job of cooking vegetables, hot dogs, and other sausages as well. I have cooked frozen prepared chicken wings without defrosting them and have gotten excellent results.

Cleanup is generally easy. I get off some of the gunk with a soft brush under running water and then wash the grills in the dishwasher.

When this one breaks, I shall get another the next day. ... Read more

Pancakes, eggs, and bacon somehow taste extra hearty whencooked in a heavy cast-iron skillet. Cast iron creates superior heatretention, heats evenly, and loves a campfire, unlike flimsier pans.Fry up a mess of catfish, roast a chicken, or bake an apple crisp inthis generous 12-inch pan that features two handles for heavy lifting,and two subtle side lips for pouring. While the skillet comespreseasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayedor lightly coated with vegetable oil before use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great skillet
I grew up using cast iron and as an adult in my own home did not have any cast iron pieces. Once I saw the pre-seasoned items here I decided to try them. I have been very pleased with this skillet, especially with the two handles. Cast iron is heavy and it's great having that other little handle to grab. Cooks like a dream and is easy to clean. Soak with some hot water (remember no soap!) and give it a light coating of oil once dry. I own the 10 1/4 skillet and had to have this one too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, dont let the low price fool you!
Let me start by saying we have a kitchen full of 20+ pieces of Calphalon Hard Annodized Commercial cookware. I was always of the opinion that quality cookware carried a price that was justified by the performace of the cookware. So I thought if I wanted cast iron I should look at LeCreuset... wrong! Lodge blew that theory out the window! I can't express how well this simple pan works. Let it get hot and it will hold the temp like nothing else, oven to cooktop. I finally decided to get a good cast iron skillet after hearing Alton Brown (Host of Good Eats - ...- TV Food Network - ...) rave about cast iron for the last few years. He steared me to Lodge, Lodge's web site ( told me about the pre-seasoned "Logic" line. This stuff makes cast iron simple. No messing around with seasoning a new pan. Simple care instructions. And clear instructions to reseason should the need occur. At the price these pans sell, there is no excuse to not have one, (or more) in your kitchen. It will soon become your favorite pan. I bought a 5 quart Lodge Logic Dutch Oven at the same time and it is fantastic as well!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Multipurpose Pan
This pan is great! The pre-seasoning takes all the guess work out of cast iron. Nothing tastes like biscuits baked on a cast iron skillet...they rise perfectly and are crispy on bottom and flaky throughout. Yum! Bacon also cooks up much better on cast iron. Great pan for a great price!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality
I own several Lodge cast iron products and use them everyday. I have 3 teeneage boys that enjoy cooking, and after they destroyed a few teflon coated pans, I decided I would go heavy into cast iron. These pans are indestructible. You can use them in the oven or stovetop, and if you keep it seasoned properly food will not stick. Also, to avoid sticking problems, you may want to remember to allow the pan to get hot before applying oil or food.

As to seasoning, the Logic line now comes preseasoned. But don't make a big deal about this. To season a cast iron skillet simply coat it lightly with oil and bake it for a half hour or so. I have also seasoned these skillets on the stovetop. Cast iron is also great because it does not easily scrap like stainless steel and aluminum pots. Aluminum pans are painful to me, as my teeth fillings react to the aluminum. With cast iron, you won't have this problem. I also take my Lodge pan camping and set it right over the coals to cook. No melted handles or scorched bottoms to mess with.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Staple Cookware Item of Any True Cook
This should be the first item purchased by beginners, to chef's. You cannot duplicate the heat dispersment qualities of a cast iron skillet. From cornbread to crepes to steaks, this skillet can do it all. This is called by the company a "heirloom" cookware item, and this not an overstatement or stretch of the truth. Families have fought over who gets items like this when grandma passes. It's utterly foolish not to purchase one of these skillets at the price and with free shipping, if you have to cook, or love to cook. This will be easily the best purchase you make in your kitchen. ... Read more
