    Amazon.com Review

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

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

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

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

    Designed by engineering guru James Dyson, inventor of the cyclonic vacuum, the 12-amp Dyson DC07 upright is an inspired combination of power and structural smarts. At the center of the machine's innovation is the Cyclone air path design, an eight-section chamber that creates powerful, consistent suction. The conical chambers generate 100,000 g of centrifugal force, pushing dust and dirt out of the airflow into the vacuum's 1-gallon collection cup. With no bag to clog, the vacuum's 270 air watts of suction remain steady. The large, transparent collection cup is easy to check and empties tidily--pop it off, hold it over a trash bin, and pull the trigger to release dirt without having to touch it. The DC07 also comes equipped with a multipart filtration system to improve overall air quality in the home. The HEPA filter, measuring 412 square inches in surface area, traps microscopic particulates and allergens. Expertly built, the filter is designed to last the lifetime of the machine.

    Suitable for bare floors and carpets, the Dyson upright features a 14-inch cleaning path and edge-cleaning bristles. A simple foot pedal switches off the brush roll for bare floors, and the nozzle automatically adjusts for changes in carpet height. The vacuum is equipped for above-floor cleaning with a cleverly stowed, quick-release 17-foot hose with a reversible, extension-wand handle. Onboard accessories include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery attachment, all designed to function without "sticking" to surfaces. Made from the same material used in crash helmets, the vacuum is unquestionably durable. Plus, the design only puts 4 pounds of weight on the handle, so pushing and turning is easy. This model comes with a 35-foot power cord.--Emily Bedard

    Editor's note: This is a reconditioned vacuum. Reconditioned generally means that the vacuum has been returned to the manufacturer, who brings the vacuum back to like-new condition.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best vacuum I have ever owned
    My reconditioned vacuum came in excellent condition. I have 2 Border Collies, a black Lab and 3 cats - as well as a husband who doesn't wipe his feet very well before he comes in the house - so I have alot of dust and pet hair.
    The Dyson arrived quickly - was easy to assemble - all the parts fit well - and cleaned the whole house "barefoot" clean. It rolls very easily, transitions well between carpet and hardwood (you do have to manually turn off the beater, but I don't think that is a problem). My other vacuums (a Hoover and an Oreck) would blow around the pet hair instead of picking it up but the suction on the Dyson was strong enough not to have that problem.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW !!!!!
    I was very apprehensive of buying a reconditioned vacuum. I figured it would arrive all scratched up and nasty. Well, mine looks brand new. Not a scratch to be found. Cannister was squeeky clean, filter had zero dirt.

    I would be thrilled with this vacuum even if it were scratched and dinged. We vacuumed the livingroom floor as soon as it arrived and could not believe how much stuff it pulled out of the rug. We have 14 month old twins crawling around so my wife vacuums everyday with the old oreck. I have never been happy with the oreck and I could justify my displeasure after the first time we vacuumed with this Dyson.

    $250 may seem like a lot of money for a reconditioned vacuum. All I can say is: if you buy it, you wont regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Refurbished Dyson rocks!
    Great vacuum. It worked as new even though I got the refurbished version.

    The other Central Florida person that got the refurb,returned it, got new gives up too easily. I got mine for $225. Even at $250+ it is a great deal! It is amazing all the dust you pickup with this thing.

    No complaints whatsoever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best vacuum I ever had
    like most of the other people that reviewed dyson - I found it to be by far the best vacuum I have ever had - much better than any hoover etc.
    It is quite powerfull and I was impressed first time I used it with how much dirt it collected from what I thought was a very clean carpet.
    I would definitely recomand it to anyone. I don't think I will ever buy any other brand again.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed with refurbished DYSON
    After weeks and weeks of research and consideration of the refurbished Dyson, I ordered it. All previous messages stated it was like new. Well, upon receiving the Dyson, overall the appearance of the vac was in like new condition with only one issue; the hose had a smash in it. No biggie right? Since the hose is just made of wire, all I had to do was pinch the wire into place and the hose was fine. Then I started it up. The seals were not sealing and I was getting an awefule whistling sound. I went to my local retailer to see if theirs did the same and nope, it didn't. I also noticed that the suction of my refurbished Dyson was also a little less than the new one. Long story short, if you didn't get in on the $225 deal, I wouldn't recommend it. These vacs are high tech. and a lot can go wrong with them. I figured Dyson would take pride in their refurbished vac, but I was not impressed what-so-ever. Needless to say, I returned my vac and purchased a new one.

    I totally recommend Dyson's new vacs. It picked up so much dirt from my house I was really impressed. And I must mention that my wife vacuumes every two weeks. Once the Dyson came to our house, it picked up three canisters of dirt and dust the first day. The house is 2800 sq. ft. VERY impressive vacuum.

    With a newborn on the way, I have a huge confidence that the house is in clean shape for the todler to crawl around on.

    The sides of this 10-inch nonstick griddle are low and slope gently, so your crêpes slide out without falling apart and your pancakes flip easily. No matter what you're cooking, you're guaranteed quick and even heat distribution, easy food release, and simple cleaning, thanks to the pan's three layers: an aluminum core, a hard-anodized exterior, and a reinforced nonstick surface. The aluminum core provides rapid heat conduction, while the hard-anodized exterior increases the griddle's durability. The nonstick surface allows you to cook low-fat meals without using any oil or butter. The griddle includes a collector's edition recipe card. As with all nonstick surfaces, you should not use metal utensils or abrasive cleaners with the griddle; doing so could void the lifetime warranty. --Laura Cuthbert ... Read more

    • Lifetime warranty; made in China

    • Oven-safe to 450 degrees F

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great little gem for the kitchen, at a great price!
    I picked up this Commercial Nonstick skillet along with several other pieces of Calphalon's open stock collection, and I have been impressed with every piece I've gotten. This is great for burgers as well as omeletes and pancakes. About the only "problem" with it is that I'm not accustomed quite yet to the high quality found in Calphalon, and I didn't expect the burgers to brown on a non-stick surface as quickly as they did, so I wound up with two rather rare burgers as a result of fearing that I would burn them. Now that I see how Calphalon's nonstick line cooks, I have had more success, and now I have beautifully cooked hamburgers every time.
    This is nonstick, so you do have to treat it with kid gloves, but as long as you use nylon or wooden utensils, do not overheat the pan, and don't run it through the dishwasher, this pan should last you a lifetime. I'm so glad I bought this, because I know that Calphalon's line of Collector's Edition products are only available for a limited time each year. I'm glad I didn't miss out on this beauty before it was gone forever!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My "new" favorite pan.........
    I can't say enough great things about this pan. I bought it as a low cost alternative to an omelet pan and it has far exceeded my expectations. It is absolutely wonderful to cook omelets in -or any egg dish. They come out perfectly every time and the non-stick coating and low sides allow you to simply slide the eggs out of the pan onto the waiting plate. It is the perfect size to heat a solitary tortillas too! This size is wonderful for cooking a serving or two and should be quite useful in anyone's kitchen. Once I heat up the pan I can make individual omelets in a couple minutes so it is useful for a larger family. It has the weight, riveted handle, etc that you expect from a quality Calphalon product. A great price for a great pan - everyone needs at least one non-stick pan and this is a wonderful choice.

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

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Pan
    This pan has become one of the most useful pans I have. It is of heavy construction, heats evenly, and the non-stick surface is great. The sides are low, but it serves as a good griddle, is useful for breakfast, cooking 2 or 3 eggs easily or about 4 pieces of french toast.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great pan
    This is a fabulous nonstick pan. I use it for effortless omelettes, eggs, pancakes. So worth it and use it all the time. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Tidy, cordless, and easy to put into action, this Panasonic ice cream maker is a refreshing alternative to its hulking all-in-one countertop cousins. Though it requires more steps than the models where you throw in ingredients and go, this little maker is both smart and efficient, making up to 3 cups of ice cream or sorbet in a few hours. Combining a stainless steel bowl and a battery-powered mixing unit, the appliance features a dual-fin stirring spatula to thoroughly mix ingredients during freezing. A microprocessor gauges the consistency of the dessert as it hardens, so no monitoring is necessary. The battery pack is compact and removable, and the other components feel sturdy and well designed.

    Included with the ice cream maker is a clear step-by-step instruction guide and a colorful booklet of recipes to get you started. Most of these require mixing or beating of ingredients before placement in the freezer bowl, but the labor is far from intensive. Once ingredients are ready, simply turn on the power, put the bowl in the freezer, and come back in 3 to 5 hours. Impressively compact for easy storage, the ice cream maker measures just 5-1/4 inches high and 6-1/2 inches in diameter. Panasonic includes a one-year warranty.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

    A perfect gift for new homemakers, the food processor has become an integral part of modern cooking, speeding up a multitude of processes, including kneading dough, slicing, chopping, shredding cheese, vegetables and meat, mincing garlic and parsley, mixing batters, and emulsifying mayonnaise. Cuisinart's Pro Classic comes with a 7-cup work bowl, four basic attachments for slicing, shredding, chopping, mixing, and kneading, and also features two feed tube options, one big enough to handle a whole potato. This processor comes with a compact cover for use when the feed tube isn't needed and a pulse control that allows the desired degree of fineness when chopping and puréeing. Remove the detachable stem for compact storage of discs. All the parts are dishwasher-safe and the motor base wipes clean. In addition, a custom-contoured spatula, a 50-page recipe booklet, and a 30-minute video designed to familiarize the new owner with the care and use of the food processor are included. --Victoria Jenkins ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best buy for the money!
    It was really lucky that our old processor went on the fritz at the same time Amazon was offering this as a special for $99! From doing some other shopping around, we expected to spend around $200. From the time it arrived, the processor has been used at least once daily. The use and care booklet provided more than enough info to get great results from the get go. The video got tossed, so cannot comment on its value. We highly recommend this, especially at the $99 price.

    4-0 out of 5 stars New to food processors
    This is my first procesor,Which I bought after much thought. I have had it a week and am very pleased with the machine. I bought this one because it came with a video,its a good video, and reduced my learning curve. For under $100 I have all the blades I need too. I have ways to go before I use this machine instinctively, but i have been practicing on dog bisquits,and have a lot of happy dogs. This was a good buy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Useful for a number of chores in the kitchen
    While I usually chop on a plastic cutting board with a big chef's knife, the Cuisinart makes several tasks a lot easier. Chopping cooked or raw meat is one. If you are making hash from leftover corned beef, a short burst in this food processor is the easiest way to go. For mixing certain pastry doughs (pie or pate brisee) this is also a very good item to have, although you have to be careful to go slowly and not overprocess. The one thing the Cuisinart does is heat up the dough if you whirl it around too much, so you have to be careful. And if you put too heavy a bread dough in, using the plastic bread blade, you can heat the shaft up enough to jam the blade onto the central post and that's a big nuisance. However, with these cautions, the Cuisinart is hands-down my favorite food processor and for shredding, slicing thinly or chopping, pretty much the best kitchen appliance for the job.

    I got a similar model, (must have been prior to this one)...It doesn't have a couple of the attachments and it has a smaller feed tube, but I can't imagine these things being worth the extra ... I really like how it works though, it is plenty powerful and can be controlled so that you can actually roughly chop things for salsa.

    I bought the Cuisinart food processor last Christmas...as a gift to myself.

    Amazon.com Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Enjoy!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Equipped with a UV germicidal light to help kill airborne microorganisms and a three-speed fan to continuously circulate air through two filters, this portable air purifier removes smoke, pollen, dust, animal dander, dust mites, molds, bacteria, viruses, and odors. Helpful for asthmatics, allergy sufferers, and cold/flu patients, the purifier contains a true HEPA filter that is at least 99.97 percent effective at trapping tiny particles; a prefilter reduces odors. A digital readout displays air quality (good, fair, or poor), and the fan can be set to automatically adjust speed according to air-quality needs. Digital indicators show when filters need replacing. The purifier measures 19-1/2 by 14 by 8-1/4 inches and is recommended for rooms up to 350 square feet. Filter replacement is simple: open front, remove prefilter and/or HEPA filter, position new filter(s), and close. The purifier carries a three-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quiter than Blueair
    I have severe asthma and have been VERY pleased with the 04163 Hamilton Beach Air Purifier. I'm not sure what planet the negative reveiwers are from but I investigated all the options regardless of price. I went by Sears and looked at the Kenmore. The reviewer who liked it must work for Sears because it isn't even in the same ballpark as the Hamilton Beach. I briefly bought and returned a BlueAir which cost twice as much and is supposed to be the quietest. Instead it has an irritating high pitched whine that oscillates and would be better utilized as a torture device. The Hamilton Beach, on the other hand, is not only quiet, but the white noise it makes is actually soporific. I prefer to sleep with it on and it runs 24/7. I use to have a constant problem with mold in my master bathroom, but the Ultraviolet light on the Hamilton Beach has kept it from returning. The other day I chased my golden retriever into the bedroom with ear cleaner and to my surprise the automatic fan smelled it, and dealt with it, turning the fan on automatically to a higher setting briefly. I couldn't even smell it myself. To describe it's air cleaing capability, I will just end by saying this, the reason I am on this site is I am getting ready to buy a second Hamilton Beach for my office.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, For Its Price and Intended Purpose
    Haven't had it for very long, just a couple of months, but I like it. I had a Honeywell room unit that was okay, but I had no idea how well it was working. With the HB, the air sensor gives you some idea of how well it's working. When first hooked up, the HB showed that the Honeywell was doing a good job of cleaning. At first, I thought maybe I should have just stayed with the Honeywell. I had initially stayed away from using the UV light, after reading that it didn't do anything. Wrong. When I finally switched on the UV light, a lot of my nighttime nasal congestion disappeared. That feature, plus the sensor, makes this model a 4- rather than 3-star product. (Keep in mind tthat this is a one-room unit and not intended for people with severe allergies.)

    Seems to have a small but noticeable effect on keeping dust down.

    Whisper Quiet ... isn't. But it's no louder than the Honeywell. I also selected Super Saver shipping, saved some money, and got it in five business days. If this unit lasts another year without problems, I'll buy another for another room in my house.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Works great but noisy
    I have been using this product for a year now with great results. It really does seem to clean the air and has improved my allergies. The filters are extremely easy to replace when necessary. My only complaint is that it is noisy, too noisy for me to use when I am sleeping.

    Recommended

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed
    It has been 3 months since I received the air purifier, one word, WOW.

    For over 3 years, I have suffered from postnasal drip and congestion every morning due to minor dust allergies. I have noticed this has progressively gotten worse over this period. In an effort to remedy this situation, I was more diligent in dusting and cleaning my apartment and I visited my doctor a few times over the past few years. I was prescribed allergy pills and steroids in an effort to cure me, nothing worked.

    I finally decided to buy an air purifier as general means of breathing cleaner air. I selected this one based on the reviews and comments others reported and was not disappointed. Literally, the first night I used the purifier, it cured my postnasal drip problem. The morning after, my nasal passage was clear and dry. I could breathe!!! Now every night before bed, I turn on my purifier and every morning now, I wake up clear and congestion free. I have even noticed when I am away from my purifier/apartment, the congestion returns.

    Now to review the product itself... I must say the gadget-lover in me, opted for the UV light and digital readout of this particular model. Honestly, I probably could have done without the UV light and digital readout. There have been nights where I forgot to turn on the UV light and still woke up fine, perhaps it may be more effective in the winter when there are more germs flying around. The only semi-annoying thing is the device does not remember the UV setting when you turn it off. With the digital readout, I think I could have done without it. As I said, I love gadgets and features like this. However, it does work though. For example, when I open my window, it quickly determines the air is much dirtier and reacts accordingly. How smart!!!

    People have noted that the purifier is very noisy. I think this is a purely subjective matter. I live in NYC on a ninth floor apartment off the East River on the FDR Drive. I am accustom to a certain amount of noise. I am subject to varying levels of car and wind noise 24/7. Concerning the purifier, I typically run it at low speed each night (I only run it at night). It is positioned at the foot of my bed. IMHO, using the lowest speed is no noisier than running an air conditioner at low speed. After a couple nights, it became white noise and is hardly noticeable to me now.

    As far as size goes, I was a bit surprised how large it is but considering the size of the HEPA filter. It is not that bad in comparison. I am sure the larger size helps in better coverage of a large sized room.

    The only negative I could come up with is the price (I paid about $140) but, given my success with the purifier, I cannot really claim this as a real fault. After 3 months, I am still on the original HEPA filter. The carbon filter I actually rinsed off the dust with some running water a couple times. It is a bit of a messy process but seems effective. I recently ran the built-in test on the filters and it passed. The replacement HEPA filter is a bit pricey; I think it should cost a lot less. They run about $40 to $50 each while the replacement carbon filters run three for $10.

    Overall, I am very, very, very happy with my purchase. The money I paid was worth it. I can breathe!!! However, if can settle for the smaller size and/or without the digital readout, just get a lower-end model which sells for much less. The most important feature is the HEPA filter. ... Read more

    With a diameter of 11-1/2 inches, a depth of 5-1/4 inches, and a high domed lid, this 7-quart pan is sized for a family's braising, baking, and stewing tasks. Chili for a soccer team, cassoulet for a family reunion, curried chicken for a block party--all these are well within the pan's capacity. Though it's not nonstick, like some Calphalon cookware, the matte-finish pan is anodized for stick-resistance as well as hardness. Metal utensils won't harm the surface. Textured cast-stainless-steel handles resist heating on the stovetop and go safely into the oven. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan heats evenly and quickly with no hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful pot
    To brew up a large pot of home made soup, chili, a pot roast with brown potatoes (Dan Quale where are you?)and carrots - you just won't find a better large pot. Brown your meat and onions on the stove top add some water, and pop into the oven until the meat is tender, add veggies and continue to cook at 300~325, covered, for the best roast you'll find anywhere. The down side is the price, here.You can find this pot at less than half the price as listed here if you do a bit of searching. As great as they usually are here, they do get a bit pricy from time to time so it is worth shopping around to find the best deal. But you will not go wrong with this pot.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another great pan
    I recently purchased this pan and have used it on several occasions, and each time the casserole has proven an invaluable buy. It's great for stews, braised dishes (like lamb shanks or osso bucco) and even plain ol' pasta. Cleaning up hasn't been much of a hassle, either, despite what some folks say about the difficulty of keeping Calphalon Hard Anodized stuff clean.

    It's a great multi-purpose pan...a bit on the expensive side, but a tremendous investment for the home cook.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Size for Soups and Stews
    Calphalon's new Commercial Hard-Anodized line of cookware is great! I love the stainless steel handles which, unlike the cast aluminum handles of their regular hard-anodized line, stay much cooler to the touch. Also the lids on this line of cookware are domed, which create a tighter seal that reduces evaporation, so you don't have to add liquid during cooking. The handle on the lid is also stainless steel, and the shape has been redesigned to allow for easier lifting. These pans can also be used in the oven.

    The Commercial Hard-Anodized 7-Quart Chef's Casserole with Lid is perfect for making a large batch of split pea, lentil, or chicken soup; Irish stew; and Coq au Vin. It's easy to braise your meat first at a medium-high heat, and then add broth or stock when you turn the heat down to a simmer.

    For a tomato-based pasta sauce or anything acidic, I still like to use my Le Creuset pots and pans. Also, I don't put any of the Calphalon pots or pans in the dishwasher. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breadman Fan
    I love my Breadman Ultimate. It makes perfect, fluffy 100% whole wheat bread from the recipe in the book -- so perfect that even people who don't like whole wheat bread like this. This is no small thing, as whole grain bread (the only kind I want to eat) tends to be dense and sometimes a chore to eat. I like to make my own bread so that I know what is in it and so I can eat healthier. I love the dispenser for seeds, as I don't want to hang around and try not to miss the beep. I like that I can choose the loaf size, so when I have company I can make a larger loaf, instead of having to make two, and can make smaller loaves the rest of the itme so the bread is always fresh. I read some other reviews that say they have had problems with the bread pan and with ambient temperatures affecting the bread. All I can say is I have had none of those. I have had the machine for about three years and lived in a drafty house on the Canadian border and in a tight modern apartment in Michigan and have used it weekly for much of that time and see no problems. It is a little workhorse that gives consistent results. I recommned this machine highly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great bread machine!
    I've had this bread machine for about a year and a half. It really does a nice job and is quite easy to use. We use it fairly often, especially with colder weather coming on, whenever a hot, fresh loaf of bread is desired! We've tried several of the recipes in the instruction manual and have enjoyed them all. I noticed one reviewer complained about not being able to order replacement parts. I accidentally tossed my kneading paddle in the trash and was able to quickly reorder one using the number in the manual for $8. The customer service rep was very kind and helpful. I'm planning on buying one of these machines for my parents for Christmas this year and would recommend the Breadman to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced, quality machine.

    1-0 out of 5 stars 3 machines later and still NO bread
    Imagine a home with two accomplished cooks. Imagine the convenience of a bread maker. Imagine eight months and three replacement products later. Imagine a Catch-22 between the manufacturer (Salton) and Amazon denying responsibility to refund our money. Imagine our outrage. Imagine the smell of warm rosemary wheat bread with English butter on a lazy Sunday morning. Well, keep imagining... we've got the third in a series of defunct Salton Breadman Ultimate setting on our kitchen counter, useless to us as anything but a paperweight. Spend your $99 USD on cooking classes and enjoy the comfort that comes from proofing your own dough.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great bread machine!
    Breadman really makes a great product. I should know since this is the third Breadman I've had. The first two are still in use and being enjoyed by their new owners. I used each machine a lot (1 or more loaves a week for years) but eventually decided to step up to a newer model. This new one is really great.
    I don't think the product description really does this product justice. For me there are a lot of improvements in this machine that weren't available when I bought my last Breadman 6 or 7 years ago. In addition to making a horizontal loaf this machine has many other great features such as: a hopper for dispensing nut or raisins (not just a beep to let you know it is time to add them), a pause button, power failure backup, bake only cycle, and the ability to program 5 custom bread cycles. The price is great too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love making homemade bread again, more than ever!
    I love the breadman. The best part is sitting watching tv and barely hearing it make wonderful bread that we will be smelling some time towards the end of the movie. I used to make bread myself. Fresh whole wheat bread and I even made a lot of sourdoughs which I must start up again with this machine. The best part is that you just stand there and watch it. No more work kneading or even wrestling with dough hooks like I used to with my Oster Mixer. It made good bread but it was difficult kneading heavy whole grains plus I had to be there 3 to 4 hours every step of the way - by hand. I have owned this machine now for almost a year. It is very easy to clean and is a high quality product. It also does have a stop/cancel button contrary to the review of a previous person. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Grilling really can't get much easier than this. After assembling the grill (which takes only a few minutes), simply plug it in and allow about 10 minutes to fully preheat the surface while you gather your steaks, kebabs, or whatever's to be grilled. The electric heat has an adjustable range from low (for keeping food warm) to high (for searing steaks). The nonstick grill surface not only means you can use a minimum of added fat, but it also makes cleanup a cinch. The surface has a subtle slope, with channels that draw accumulated fat or other liquids into a tray just below the surface. The high domed and vented lid helps create a circular flow of hot air to ensure even cooking--particularly important for a large roast or whole chicken.

    The grill can be placed either directly on a tabletop or atop its pedestal. On its own, the grill surface stands about 6 inches high; with the pedestal, it stands about 2-1/2 feet high, not counting the domed lid. The pedestal is plenty sturdy for cooking, but the grill still seems a bit top-heavy, so pay special attention if grilling in a high-traffic area or near kids. Because of the easy electric heat, this grill can be used outdoors or indoors--when using it indoors, though, be prepared for potential spattering, steam, or other side effects of cooking. --Cynthia Nims ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars backup grill
    Originally I saw my mother's George Forman grill (smaller indoor one with lid). Then I saw my brother's Party Size grill. Both of them love their grill. I was able to taste the food from both and found it very tasty and easy to use. I decided to do some investigating on my own intending to purchase the party size grill, when I saw the indoor/outdoor grill. I was impressed with the fact that it appeared to be a bigger cooking surface and the price I found was within reason. I purchased it for the purpose of using it as an extra grill for a cookout I was having. No one used the gas grill at all. I have since used it indoors without the stand, making it convient on rainy days. It is the easiest grill to use and clean that we have ever owned. You can cook everything evenly, because there are no coals to level out. It can easily hold 4 to 5 steaks, 10 big hamburgers, and the list goes one. I am sure there are some drawbacks to those that swear by gas/charcoal grills, but my gas grill has found a permanent residence in our shed, while George sits ready to use at any time indoors or out on our back porch. I am so impressed, that I am purchasing one for my parents for Christmas, to replace the charcoal grill that takes for ever to heat up and messy to clean. I'm sure they'll love it too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars No-fuss barbecuing!
    Until last weekend, I was barbecue-challenged. I had a Weber charcoal grill that was almost never used, because I could never figure out how to grill a steak (or anything else) to perfection. I never knew how much charcoal to use, or when it was hot enough, and hated the messy cleanup afterwards. Then one Sunday I saw a flyer in the newspaper from a department store that was advertising the George Foreman indoor/outdoor electric grill for sale at only [money amount], plus there was a 20% off coupon. I read reviews of it at Amazon.com, and decided that there wasn't too much risk in buying it. The instruction booklet includes general guidelines on how long to cook different types of food, and what heat setting. My first evening, I grilled some swordfish, and it was absolutely delicious. The next evening, I grilled lamb chops, and these too were superb. Clean up was so easy since the grill is non-stick -- no spent charcoals to throw away! No need to buy propane gas! Just unplug! I think that even my husband, who has never cooked anything in his life, can learn to use it. The surface is large enough that you can cook for friends. I'm looking forward to barbecuing every weekend, even in winter! The only very minor negative: unlike a charcoal or gas grill, it can't be used in case of power failure (as we had in the Washington DC area recently after a storm).

    5-0 out of 5 stars George is right. It actually does what he claims it will do!
    I bought this grill 4 months ago and have used it several times per week ever since. I am a very lazy cook with 3 hungry teens and a hubby who eats like he's a heavyweight boxer. So, I needed something that would cook and clean-up as easily as possible. I can turn on the grill (it has an adjustable thermostat), take out a package of frozen chicken, hamburger patties, whatever, prepare it as usual, and the grill is ready to go to work. Dinner is on the table in no time. Its non-stick surface is just that, making clean-up simple and quick.
    I am quite happy with the surface area, as I can easily fit 8 large burgers on at once. I live in the frozen north, so the fact that this grill will also work indoors is plus.
    It's portable, reliable, easy to use and clean, and a bargain compared to other outdoor grills.
    George put his name on a very good product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Someone please explain...
    ...who designed this grill and the packaging. I haven't seen anything better. Ever. My only complaint about this item is that the temp. control knob gets pretty warm when the unit is used for extended periods (but that doesn't happen too often - if it did I'd have gotten a bigger BBQ). That's it. Everything else about this unit is excellent. Cooks great, cleans great, stores great.

    5-0 out of 5 stars fast food
    We just got this indoor/outdoor grill and couldn't wait to try it. We just tossed on whatever was around -- leftover fried chicken, vidalia onions, cauliflour, and a zucchini. In as long as it took to pull out some dishes and set the table, a hot, fat-free (well maybe not the chicken) dinner was ready. If this is what we can expect from this grill, we're completely happy with it. Cleanup was a breeze. Tomorrow we'll try raw fish or chicken for fast food the way we like it. ... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    3-0 out of 5 stars I prefer the tilt head model
    I bought this mixer to replace my KitchenAid Ultra Power because it was a smoking deal on Amazon.

    Here's what I don't like:
    1. The struggle to snap the bowl in place.
    2. Because of #1, I have to keep adjusting the screw so the paddle/dough hook, whip meet correctly.
    3. One ruined paddle that is missing its nylon coating.

    Upside:
    1.Customer service is nice.I called to complain about the paddle, and they sent me a new one, free, along with instructions on how to properly adjust the mixer.
    2.I can make double batches of frosting.

    Here's how you adjust that screw to prevent the nylon coating from coming off your paddle and dough hook:
    1.Put a dime in the bottom of the bowl.
    2.Use the paddle and turn the mixer on.
    3.Adjust the screw.
    4.If the dime moves about 3/4" each time the paddle goes by, then your mixer is properly adjusted.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Paint came off after 3 uses
    I have the feeling that this is a refurbished mixer.The paint on the flat beater came off after 3rd time.I was only making cookies when I realized the paint has come off.The paint on the bottom of the mixer where the bowl sits also came off.Then we read the manual that you have to adjusted the "beater to bowl clearance".Why wasn't this pre-adjusted by the manufacture.My husband was trying to get the screw off to adjust this but couldn't.Now I am thinking returning this because paint might come off again on the beater or anywhere else on this mixer.This model was not advertised as a refurbished model when we bought it.But I think it might be because it was showing in Amazon as an used one at one point, now it's not again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ancient work horse
    I have to say that after 18 years of near constant use, this mixer is like an old friend.

    It has consistantly made large loads of bread 2-3 times aweek for 18 years before it started acting up. It also has been used for just about everything else, as we have almost every contraption that goes with it!

    In the 18th year the motor brushes needed to be replaced, which was done by a local repair shop. Now about a year later it is starting to make a lot of noise. I took it apart and could not find what the source of trouble was. When I got it all back together, the noise stopped for a few weeks, but now is back again, prompting me to look around to see if there is something better . . . I am tempted by the larger motor series mixers, but would like to keep my current mixers bowls and beaters . . .

    As for the other reviewers who seem to be trashing this mixer . . . I simply do not see their complaints as being a problem. This has been a great workhorse for our busy kitchen for far longer than anything else that see's nearly half it's use.

    I am still looking for the next mixer, but for 99% of the users, this machine is more than enough I'm certain.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Put me in the not satisfied category....
    This thing is the worst of both worlds.It has all the hassles of an industrial mixer without the power.

    First of all, the bowl itself goes up and down instead of having a swivel head, so unless you put all the ingredients in at once, it is a pain to add ingredients.I guess removing the bowl is an option, but then you need to remove the mixing blade.Then it starts with a pretty strong kick (even when set on 1), so there is usually flour everywhere.On top of all this it really doesn't have a strong motor.I did less than a double batch of chocolate chip cookies with it, and once all the ingredients were in, it wouldn't go past speed 1.Finally, it comes with very little, and all the add ons are pretty pricey.

    My advise: either buy a swivel head model, or get one of the professional models with a real strong motor (450+ watts).

    1-0 out of 5 stars easy lift handle does not work veyr good...
    I have purchased 3 of these mixers in the last couple of years. While I like the power they have, I would never buy another. the so called easy lift handle is prone to breakage. On all three mixers, after a couple of months, the handle is so hard to use (bowl won't budge) that I have given up on these mixers. I would suggest getting the kitchenaid with the pivoting head. ...

    Amazon.com Review

    Housed in a nine-slot wood block, this Grand Prix set offers Wusthof’s excellence in a highly-versatile grouping. The set includes the following knives: 2-3/4-inch narrow-bladed trimming parer; 5-inch serrated and pronged tomato knife; 6-inch all-purpose sandwich knife; and a hefty 8-inch chef’s knife for chopping, dicing, and slicing. Also included are kitchen shears and a 7-inch sharpening steel. The Grand Prix knives feature a pebble-grain synthetic handle molded over an extended tang for a sure, comfortable grip. Because the steel tang does not run the full length of the handle, a Grand Prix knife offers slightly less heft than its Classic counterpart, yet more than the trim Le Cordon Bleu. Grand Prix differs from Grand Prix II in that the latter features a more ergonomically-curved handle with a blunt end. Grand Prix handles are straighter with rounded ends.

    All Grand Prix knives are precision forged from a single piece of high-carbon, stain-resistant German steel. Each blade has been impeccably honed by hand and its edge laser-tested for uniformity. An edge may be re-sharpened professionally or with a sharpening steel. Though the utensils are dishwasher-safe, Wusthof recommends washing all fine cutlery by hand. Made in Germany, the set is fully guaranteed to be free of defects in materials and/or craftsmanship. --Ann Bieri

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wusthof Grand Prix 7-Piece Block Set with Bonus knife
    I received my set which also did not contain the silverpoint bonus knife. I e-mailed customer service and got a reply in a couple of hours that they would rectify the problem. Practically the next day I received a new set which, to my disappointment,also did not contain the touted silverpoint knife. However, now I had to go to the post office and return one of the sets.At this point I beleive that none of the sets contain the knife.
    This problem aside, the knives are awsome. They were sharp right out of the box and I was able to slice grapes with just one stroke while holding them over my cup of cereal.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Missing item too. Hope Amazon makes good on it.
    I received the set today and I, too, am missing an item. I am missing the bonus Silverpoint knife. I have written to Amazon and hope they do make good on it.

    The knives were sent in a cardboard box, stuffed with rolled up packing paper. Each knife had a cardboard sleeve. But an extra sleeve with no knive in it. I assume this sleeve was for the missing silverpoint knife.

    The knives had little white dots on the handle but removable with a little water and wipe. The steel had streaks but also easily cleanable.

    But for $154.99, I really expected to get the whole set as shown and written above. Be sure to check yours, it's easy to pass over it. Just waiting for my reply....
