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

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

Amazon.com Review

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Shop for bargains
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.

5-0 out of 5 stars A "gadget" that really works
I bought the Cuisinart food processor last Christmas...as a gift to myself. My husband rolled his eyes when I told him I had bought this..he thought this was another gadget that would get used once and then disappear forever in a kitchen cabinet. I absolutely love this machine...I use it almost everyday from chopping vegetables to making cookie/cake dough. It is easy to use...easy to put together and best off all..easy to clean. I would highly recommend this for anybody who wants something that really works. ... 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 ...

  • Grill top measures 17 inches across for generous cooking capacity
  • No-fuss grilling made easy, for use indoors or outside
  • Grill can be used on pedestal (stands about -1/2 feet high) or on tabletop

  • Sloping grate base draws fat away from food to collect in easy-to-empty tray

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

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

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. ...

Yogurt is a great, guilt-free snack for both adults and kids. With this yogurt maker, it's easy to add favorite flavors--including exotic and sweet fruits, rich crunchy nuts, and natural sweeteners--to basic yogurt. Just follow the recipes, supplied by the manufacturer, and a nutritious snack, with very little fat and no preservatives (like most commercial brands), is not too far away. Making yogurt takes from 4 to 10 hours to process, depending on desired tartness of the batch. If you're looking for frozen yogurt, you do have to chill it for 2 hours in the freezer before consumption after it's made. The yogurt can be stored up to one week. --Teresa Simanton ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and the Best!
I have tried many yogurt makers, this is the best.

The Easiset thick lush delicious yogurt
1. 1 qt. whole milk+1/2 cup alba calcium fortified dry milk( you can use any powdered milk... this is for extra body and calium)
2. Heat in microwave until 175 degrees approx 7 min on High.
(check your microwave of course for shorter or longer time))
3. Cool between 110-115 degrees
4. Scoop some of the warm milk into a clean glass
add, some active yogurt(dannon plain is okay) or add 1 package of Yogourmet Yogurt starter(best starter Ever, at health food store), stir throughly but not viciously!
5. Add the starter mix to large container of cooled milk, stir.
6. Pour milk into Yogurtcantainer that comes w/ set.
7. 4 hours and fantastic Yogurt. Make sure you let it chill, gets thicker...and you won't believe your eyes and taste buds at the thick yummy yogurt!

No additives, sweeteners, strange thickeners. I make every two days, can't keep it in the house, everyone waits for new batch. My husband has colitis and this is saving him!

The price beats all on this appliance!

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy After One Year
I bought this product one year ago based on Amazon reviews and, after some fine tuning of the included directions, routinely make yogurt as I get ready for work--as often as 4 times each week. I heat the milk in the microwave while I feed the cats, then cool the hot liquid in the refrigerator as I shower, and finally mix in the starter yogurt and pop it all in the yogurt maker before I head out the door. I remove the finished product when I come home for lunch. Even if I let it cook all day, I don't find the yogurt to be too tart. Making yogurt with this Salton product is easy. I like the large container size. The yogurt itself tastes great and has a good texture. I've only had two failed batches all year--can't remember why now, but probably my fault. I am buying another Salton Yogurt Maker to give as a gift.

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful little machine!!!
I had a 6 (separate) cup yogurt maker which was difficult to keep clean. The yogurt maker made by Salton is very easy to use and makes perfect yogurt every time! Just follow the instructions and you have nice, wholesome, yogurt with no additives and at a fraction of the cost too. Truly, it is one of the best gadgets I own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, Cheap, Reliable!
I have always loved homemade yogurt and absolutety love this machine! I had never bought a yogurt maker due to the high cost and most of them being too big. (I mean, really, can a single person really eat a half gallon by themselves before getting sick of it?) Making yogurt is really easy and some of the other machines out there make it more difficult. Also, this machine is very user friendly, designed simply (low-tech is best) and very practically. It maintains the correct temperature, takes up a minimum of space, cleans up fast, doesn't make too much, and since I use it almost every day, and have for almost a year, I am very impressed with its reliability. What else can I say? If it were a man I would marry it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Why pay more for store-bought plain yogurt?
I eat a lot of yogurt. Plain. So why should I shell out so much for store yogurt when making your own is so easy?

Some of the secrets of yogurt to help you be successful:

1. Cleanliness is next to Godliness for any dairy recipe. Bacteria or other microorganisms you are inviting to the party can make off flavors, goopy results.

2. Yogurt is thickened commercially with dry powdered milk to add body to the product. American milk from Holsteins is thin and lacking in protein. Adding dry powder milk puts back in the casein that sets up to make a nice creamy, thick yogurt. Jersey cow milk is higher in fat and protein; if you have access to Jersey milk, then you might not need to add dry powdered milk.

3. If you DON'T SCALD THE MILK (bring to a boil) you will leave in enzymes that will result in a thin, porridge-like yogurt, if you are lucky. If you aren't lucky, the result will be liquid milk but spoiled. So scald the milk.

4. After you scald, take the milk's temperature. It has to be around 80-85 degrees and no more, or the culture you stir in will be killed off and again, you won't get any yogurt. Plain yogurt starter works fine. Make sure it's fresh, however.

I like my yogurt plain or with apple and sunflower seeds stirred in. But feel free to flavor yours with apple butter, jam, fresh berries, honey. Kids like it with whipped strawberries or blueberries and maple syrup. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Deep Fryer
I just got my deep fryer, pulled it out of the box and hooked it up. In about 5 mins the oil was hot enough to cook my fries. I have not had any problems with the unit at all. The unit heats the oil very fast and has an indicator light when its ready. It has several unique safety features built in. Food comes out great. The best deep fryer I have ever owned.

-Update

Had my deep fryer for about 2 months, and to look back I dont know how I got along without it. The Fryer heats up to a marked temperature of 375 degrees, and will shut off if its gets over like 550. I have gotten tremendous use out of this fryer and it has definently paid for itself from less power, and time saved. I am still very happy with the heat up time and, how fast it recovers its temperature.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Deep Fryer I've Ever Owned
I've only had this a short time and only used it a few times, but here are my impressions thus far.

PROS:

Attractive, durable construction. Wire basket is excellent; handle folds inside basket for compast storage inside the unit.

Lid is well thought-out, with silicone lined notches on the handle end so it fits snuggly and you don't have to lift it to raise or lower the basket.

Cleanup is fairly easy. Toss lid and basket in the dishwasher, drain the oil reservoir using the convenient corner pour spout (use a large funnel if straining, because one gallon gets heavy after awhile) and put the reservoir into the dishwasher. Everything except the heating element is immersible. I put the element on a plate to let it drain and then wipe it clean.

Oil heats up rapidly. The deep reservoir keeps splattering to a minimum. Food cooks fairly close to times indicated in recipes or on boxes, so I assume temperature is accurate. Fries came out crisp, mozarella sticks were done perfectly.

Number one advantage: because this has an immersible heating element (it's big, not like one you'd attach to an electric skillet), the oil temp below the element is cooler; thus all the burned bits fall down there, so you can cook batches of fries without getting floating debris stuck to them.

Maximum temperature is 375, but the manual says it has a safety feature whereby it automatically turns off if the oil exceeds 525. The safety features are great, like the short magnetically attached cord. It's secure enough so that it doesn't come loose when you move the unit but if someone were to pull the cord, it would break away from the unit.

The basket hanger inside the unit is handy for draining.

Lid seems to catch the condensation.

CONS:

My cons are pretty insignficant.

My main one would be that the oil cools significantly when you add significant quantities of food (even unfrozen food) and takes too long to heat up. For example, I did a batch of fresh fries, and the oil cooled but didn't heat up to the correct temperature in the four minutes it took to cook them. When I did a very small batch of fries, the oil temp. never dropped.

When I set the timer for under three minutes, it never went off. Everything over that was fine, however.

If you make something like corndogs, lower basket first and drop directly into oil or it will definitely stick to basket. Sometimes it sticks to basket anyway. Then the basket is a little harder to clean. I had to use a fork to poke the crust out of some of the holes.

Biggest drawback: Filter in lid cannot be removed and replaced. The fliter in the lid isn't the greatest. It's not a charcoal one, for example, that would readily absorb all the cooking odors. It seems to be a steel mesh thing. It's welded in and although you can clean it through the "gills" on the lid, you cannot replace it. Being able to remove and clean/replace the filter would be better. This one doesn't seem to trap odors well.

But these are small issues. I really like the deep fryer and it's a million times better than the old "Fry Daddy" my parents had growing up. It never splatters outside the deep fryer, it's easy to clean, and the food comes out far superior to any deep fryer I've ever used, which I believe is because the crumbs fall to the bottom of the unit.

Definitely worth the price--it costs my family $20 each time we go to McDonald's, so this will pay for itself easily. Last night my kids said "Mom, we don't ever have to go out to eat again because you can make all our favorite foods now."

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Home Deep Fryer Ever
This is by far the best home deep fryer ever. I have owned a number of different deep fryers, and have never been totally satisfied with their ability to fry well. This Waring deep fryer does what many fryers can not - it holds its temperature when you place the food in it to be fried. Therefore, the food comes out crispy and delicious. Chicken nuggets come out crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. Corn Dogs are a treat in this fryer. The basket is sturdy, the unit is well insulated, and the controls are easy to use. Clean up is easy as almost all the parts (except the heating element/controls) are dishwasher safe. The only negative is that the unit is big and requires lots of oil, but that is also a positive, as little units can't fry much, let alone even hold a corn dog or other large item. If you love deep fried foods, you'll love this Waring Deep Fryer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't be beat.
This is a PERFECT machine. Don't waste your money on cheaper fryers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally! A great home fryer!
Before purchasing this unit, I examined every other fryer marketed, in hand. Other companies offer quite similar units at first glance, but in the end, this one has no peer. While indeed one of the most costly, its combination of well-designed features is easily worth the additional 20-30 Dollars over competitive fryers.

It's very big and, at 1800 robust watts, is as powerful as most modern kitchens can accommodate... If your kitchen isn't wired with 20-amp grounded outlets within two feet of its resting place, you should consider a 1500-watt unit from another maker, as it may trip your breaker or work at less than peak performance. Better yet, have your kitchen wired accordingly.

It demands lots of space, but should fit on the average counter, though I'd recommend that it not be placed beneath cabinets, or within a foot from them, as they will indeed take a beating from vapor and grease. I placed it on a cookie sheet on top of my range, beneath the exhaust hood, but be sure you have no lit pilot lamps or burners, which would pose a serious fire hazard. Its well-designed magnetic breakaway safety cord will reach slightly more than 2 feet. An extension is NOT recommended, and any extension of less amperage capacity than a very short, 12-gauge cord would seriously deplete the wattage and cause a fire hazard, and overheat the appliance. Again, do it right and have a stout 20-amp receptacle within range.

The construction of the fryer is outstanding. The unit's mass and features evoked an involuntary guttural grunt from me when I looked at it in my kitchen for the first time, and my wife issued a concurring female grunt. Everything breaks down easily for cleaning in seconds. All parts except the heating module are dishwasher-safe. Even then, the elements can be sloshed in hot detergent and rinsed easily. The heating element is sturdy and suspends well off the bottom of the heavy gauge stainless steel tub, thus the tub bottom won't scorch and food particles remain an easily dissolved paste. The tub has a pouring corner that works well when recanting the nearly full gallon of oil it's designed to take. If allowed to cool and settle overnight, no filtering is required. As a hint, once used, oil should be refrigerated to prevent rancidity. The heating module has a reset button, in the event the element temperature exceeds 525° degrees, though I can't see why that would occur unless the pot was accidentally empty. It maintains the selected temperature very well and has two pilot lights that signify when the unit is on, and when temperature has been reached. The industrial On-Off stalk-type toggle switch snaps smartly, as one would arm a missile system. The two dials are solidly made and turn smoothly. The basket is very sturdy and has a fold-in handle for storage. The lid sits in a nicely designed collection ridge that directs all condensation or spatter to a removable collection receptacle... and it works. The design allows immersion and lifting of the basket from and to its solid resting hook with the lid on, though the manufacturer suggests that some foods be started without the lid. The glass window is large and easily allows inspection of the cooking progress without removal of the lid, and stays remarkable clear during cooking. Everything about this appliance is there for a reason, with no gadgetry, and nothing is lacking.

Anything I could say about cooking performance would be an understatement. In short, it fried a whole chicken in three quick batches, to crispy, juicy perfection, and not a single drop of fat landed on my counter during the cooking process. It can easily accommodate an undivided half chicken. It cleaned up fast and easily. Most highly recommended!

A few polite words about the cons in another review are in order...

The timer does function down to less than three minutes, very nicely. Just as my grandmother did with her old egg timer, simply turn it beyond ten minutes to catch the spring and turn it back to whatever suits.

The heavy gauge screen on top is NOT a filter, nor is it purported to be. It's designed to allow vapor to escape, while blocking spatter, and it works beautifully and washes beautifully. Odor control is the function of an outside emitting exhaust hood, which should be a standard fixture in any kitchen.

As another reviewer wisely suggested, fries should be double-fried if crispiness is desired. Simply fry for about 3 minutes, then raise the basket for 30 seconds or so, re-immerse and continue until done.

Finally, battered or doughy foods should always be placed directly into the oil, with the basket submerged, or they will adhere to the basket. These are both well-known commercial frying techniques.

This is as good as technology gets for a home fryer. For more capacity or power than this extremely well designed appliance, one would have to obtain a 240-volt commercial fryer from a restaurant supply. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This multipurpose tool created a stir in the kitchen when it came out, as the food processor did a generation earlier. In order to blend, whip, and chop smaller amounts of ingredients, it's no longer necessary to wrestle with bulky appliances. Immerse the 7-1/2-inch blender shaft, with its little blade on the end, into a pot where vegetables have been simmering, press the switch, and in seconds a creamy soup appears--with no need to dump everything into a big blender. Blend sauces and baby foods in their cooking pots, too. Blend a milk shake or juice drink right in its drinking container, or in the 2-1/2-cup beaker included in this set. Whipping cream and egg whites is just as convenient: a 5-inch whisk attaches to the motor when the blender is removed. For chopping nuts, herbs, garlic, or onions, there's a 2-cup chopper bowl with a special blade. The motor with the attached blender shaft can be mounted on a wall (mount included). Everything but the motor and the chopper-bowl top (both should be wiped with a damp cloth) can go into the dishwasher. This tool is more than handy, it's a revolution. The instruction sheet, unfortunately, is harder to comprehend than the tool is to use. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What a Godsend!
No, I'm not kidding. This handy little guy has saved me counter space, time and cleaning up. I am able to make cakes, muffins, great tasting pure fruit juices in an instant. I thought that this little gadget wouldn't be able to live up to its promise, but it's proved me wrong. I bought it out of desperation, after my Moulinex broke down. The first thought in my head was "what about counter space?" Well, Mr. Braun made sure he left nothing out. Because of his great mind, the device comes with a wall mounting so you don't have to clutter your counter with clumsy top-heavy things.

I read in a review for this product that it doesn't last. What could possibly be wrong with this when you need to chop something really fast? Like any normal person, I use the device, clean it and put it away. Simple as that! You can even go as far as using it and putting it back in the box. That is what I did up til the time the wall mount was set up.

Now I can watch my weight, drink homemade milkshakes, and chop away at those tear jerking onions without shedding a single tear.
And, when I'm done, I just rinse everything in the sink and clip it back onto the wall til the next time.
No more fuss having to make the perfect omelet either. With the handy wire whisk, you'll have a nice fluffy omelet in no time.

Watch out for how much pressure you apply to the speed accelerator button, because you may find your cake mix blending in pretty well with the paint on your wall. In that case, avoid using a shallow bowl. Use a deeper mixing bowl, bigger than the size recommended for your ingredients.

Happy cooking! Hope my review helped you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful gadget with no Mess!
These days it's hard to really brag about a product, especially something as silly as a blender. Well, here I am, ready to brag about it. Just received it today, and I was very impressed with its performance. I work out almost every day, and I need to be consuming about 3 large shakes a day. I use to stir about 2 cups of powder and milk for about 3-4 minutes each time I had to make a shake. Every single time, since the shake had to be super thick, I'd get nasty big CLUMPS all over, it was a disaster and something I never looked forward to. This gadget, however, is a gift sent from god I tell ya! Less than 10 seconds ( no exaggeration) and the thing just turned into liquid, CLUMPFREE, it tasted so damn good. BUT, yes there's a BUT... the BEST part was that it only took another fifteen seconds to clean!... Cleaning blenders three times a day everyday could be a nightmare, but with this gadget it's a beautiful thing. If you need a blender everyday this is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Detachable system works the best
I've had a Braun one-piece hand blender for about 12-15 years that has worked very well. My wife saw this model somewhere and bought it for me for one simple reason: I was always complaining about the non-detachable model being dangerous if you left it pluged in.

Since the blades are exposed, any pressing of the button will chop anything in its path, and that includes fingers. Now, with the new model, it can stay pluged in and safe, since it stays detached until use (at least in my case). Of course, none of this speaks to this thing being much easier to clean than the previous one. I detach after use, run under hot water, then place on a paper towel to dry. If I'm in a hurry, I just drop in a water-filled glass in the sink and deal with it later. It doesn't stain, even with blueberries, so there isn't a need to deal with it immediately. However, I would not recommend putting this in the dishwasher. There's no need to and the prolonged heat might damage it. That's just my suspicion. At any rate, cleaning the old one required attention to it immediately after use.

Anyway, I use this thing almost daily for protein shakes (smoothies). I'm considering a smoothie maker since I want something to make in the morning and have made for several more shakes during the day. However, even with a smoothie maker, I'll still use this Braun blender on stuff that would create a mess in the smoothie machine. For example, one shake I make with protein powder, milk, a few small ice cubes and peanut butter. I swear that tastes just like a melted Blizzard from Dairy Queen, for those of you that have had them. You would NOT want to make anything with Peanut butter in a smoothie maker or blender. With the Braun, its a snap!

2-0 out of 5 stars Trust me, it's not worth it.
I was initially very happy with this blender. I probably used it no more than twice a week for fairly low-powered jobs like making pesto and blending soup. 14 months after purchase, the motor just died, literally in mid-blend. I thought it had gotten overheated and left it for a couple of days. No luck. It was fully dead, and so was the 1-year warranty.

So I called Braun. I admit I was hoping they would offer to give me a replacement motor unit. Nope. I asked about repair, but apparently, nobody fixes things anymore. Nor do they offer recycling. What they do offer is a heavy pitch to buy a whole new Braun blender set, even if all the attachments for your old one is perfectly fine. I had to argue with them for 15 minutes before they decided that they would just let me buy a new motor unit off of them for $20.

A week later I got a box from Braun with... a whole new set of attachments. Not the motor unit. Needless to say, I'm never buying another Braun product again. If somebody wants the used attachments (whisk, chopper, blender, smoothie container), they're yours.

Professional chefs have long sung the praises of the KitchenAid stand mixer. Now, KitchenAid has designed a product specifically for the home baker with this five-speed hand mixer. Very portable, this mixer allows you to roam the kitchen and mix at will. Its powerful yet lightweight motor maintains consistent beater speed even in heavy mixtures and won't bog down. The mixer comes with traditional beaters and also dough hooks for raised yeast doughs--simply change attachments to mix heavy bread doughs and delicate whites all with the same machine. Designed with nonclogging air vents, the mixer is easy to clean because smooth, sleek surfaces have no seams or grooves that trap ingredients. This mixer also comes with a one-year warranty. --Linda Dahlstrom ... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

5-0 out of 5 stars No need to go to Starbucks anymore
I purchased the Italia at Starbucks 2 years ago (for a lot more money) and have been using it daily.This machine is easy to use, and easily adjusts ground to water ratio to get the perfect espresso. Frothing works great.The newer model has a swivil steam wand that can rotate in and out and not just left to right like this model AND an additional rack on the top cup warmer to keeps cups from falling off (not worth the additional cost-I never had a cup fall off).I save money every day by not buying a Venti from Starbucks since I can make a more consistent quality coffee myself.ENJOY! ...
