Sunbeam FPSBFCM40 Fortune Cookie Maker, Fun, fast and different

Great price and a very cute product.

My 12 yr old son asked for a fortune cookie maker for his birthday. The recipe in the included booklet made a nice crisp cookie. There is a little trial-and-error to get the right cooking time, and learn the correct folding technique; we had a few rounds of rejects, but then every one after that was perfect.

The flap lock for securing the opening during cook time is broken after a few uses. Otherwise, it’s a fine product.

Comments from buyers

“I like my fortune cookie maker way too much.
, Wonderful product
, This fortune cookie maker is terrific. I have made fortune cookies for birthday parties

Actually the cookie maker was incomplete the plastic piece that help to fold the cookies wasn’t in the box anyway it works and we invented how to fold the cookies.

Fortune cookie maker produced perfect fortune cookies. It was a gift for a teenager and he enjoyed sharing it with family and friends.

This cookie maker is easy to use and fun for the kids. In addition they taste better than store bought cookies. Can be used for all occasions.

Item as described at a great price.

I was very pleased with this product. I bought it for friend and she was so amazed she couldn’t wait to make them.

It takes a while to learn how to give the fortune cookies the proper shape without burning your fingers. The recipe that comes with the device is very good and makes a lot of cookies. You can also made ‘medallions’ (flat disks) and, with a small stick, you can roll wonderful mini-canoli. Warning: depending where you live, the ultra-fine or super fine sugar the recipe calls for may not be available. Plan ahead or order this special sugar online.

The quality of the cookies that come out of it are surprisingly good. In many ways, better than the fortune cookies you are used to at chinese restaurants in that they have more flavor (recipe provided in package) and make other fortune cookies taste kind of bland. Be careful when making them, the stuff is quite hot and you can burn your fingers so i would not recommend this for young kids. Very glad i purchased this and would recommend to anyone who likes fortune cookies. Being able to make up your own fortunes and stick them in the cookies is kinda fun too.

My daughter wanted a fortune-cookie maker, and after looking at the ‘toy’ options, i decided to buy a ‘real’ kitchen item (one that a cook would use). I’m so glad i picked this one. It’s easy to use, and the instructions for folding the cookies were simple to follow — we practiced on the first cookie and each got it right by the second one. I opted not to buy any pre-packaged fortune cookie mixes (none of them got great reviews). We used the recipe that was included with the fortune cookie maker, and it’s delicious. The cookies looked and tasted exactly like the kind you get after dinner in a chinese restaurant, and cleanup was easy.

I have been having fun making my own fortune cookies. It took a while to get the hang of it. I also looked up a video on youtube for better folding instructions. The recipe is okay, but there are better ones out there. Lots of great fortunes on line as well if you get stumped.

We enjoy using the fortune cookie maker. They arent as crispy as the bought ones but they taste great.

I bought this for my 9 year old for christmas and she absolutely loved it. Easy to use and includes a recipe that makes great tasting cookies.

The first batch i tried, i added motivational/weight loss ‘foturnes’, and took them to my sunday morning weight watcher meeting (only 1p+, if you’re interested). So much so, that i came home an immediately started another batch to take with me to work in the morning. Practice improves the outcome – this time i used my mixer to make the batter, as well as a little less sugar than the recipe called for (the booklets says to use less sugar for a less brown cookie). I ended up dipping these in chocolate, then drizzling them with white chocolate. I’m now coming up with all kinds of ideas for these. My co-workers loved them, and many asked if they could buy some.

I bought this fortune cookie maker for my niece, age 15, and she and i both loved it. Making the cookies was fast-paced and challenging but in a fun way. It takes about one minute to make two cookies so we were on our toes, figuring out how to improve our technique each time. We were very excited to see our cookies look like real fortune cookies. We had even more fun decorating them with melted chocolate and sprinkles. I’ve since ordered two more of these to give out as gifts.

Had fun making fortune cookies with my kids with this. We’ll run out of the special paper at some point, but it is fun and fairly easy. Getting the folded right takes some practice.

Requires some tweaking to get perfect cookies, but awesome appliance and so much fun.

I have only used this product once, but the cookies came out perfectly. We followed the recipe for the cookie batter that comes with the machine and made 10 cookies (i probably could have made 100 with the quantity of batter that recipe makes). Even on our first try, the cookies looked just like the ones you get at a restaurant and had the same texture, too. We actually thought they tasted better than any we had ever had. They key to forming them properly is to do everything quickly and not worry about the imperfections. Try to get a symmetrical fold, then snap off the excess parts when it’s hardened. Even the first 4-5 i made before i really had the hang of it still ended up looking decent. I’m skeptical of the fda-approved paper and marker for writing fortunes that comes with it. I can’t believe i can’t just use my own pen and paper without giving myself ink-poisoning.

These cookies are great and making them is fun. However, getting them out of the cooker and into the holder requires touching the cookie, which is very hot. To top it all off, the folder ‘grips’ are plastic nubs- designed specially, it seems, to aggravate your already burned finger tips. That said though, this is a great, fun product that makes awesome cookies. I plan on getting it for everyone next christmas.

A little labor intensive, but worth the effort.

This unit is probably the best unit on the market for its price and size. I like it and i would buy it again. The unit comes with a written cookie recipe but i would strongly urge you to look online and experiment with other recipes and the use of cooking grade lecithin. Lecithin will alleviate the moisture issue i found with the recipe. This is a great home unit when making a quick fortune cookies for special events and such.

This thing is so much fun after you figure out how to fold the cookies. Look for a youtube video if you have trouble with the diagram in the instructions. You also might want to wear some cotton gloves if you’re real sensitive to heat. (i’m extra-sensitive because a long term illness has greatly decreased my pain tolerance. You may not have any problems. ) the most fun part is coming up with the fortunes. I recommend a typewriter for this. The recipe in the pamphlet that comes with it is great, and makes close to 3 dozen. Much more flavorful than the plastic-wrapped restaurant variety. Great fun for parties, easy to make ahead.

Old’s present and she was absolutely zonkers. I got lots of hugs and kisses.

KRUPS BW720D Performa Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle : Three Stars

No more forgetting that the tea has boiled for half an hour.

Good product, even it might be a little slower than described.

KRUPS BW720D Performa Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle, 1.7-Liter, Silver

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Automatic opening lid and 360-degree rotational base
  • 2 visible water level indicators; on/off switch
  • Removable anti-scale filter ensures excellent-tasting results and improved product longevity
  • Auto shut off when water boils or if kettle is empty
  • 1.7-Liter/57-Ounce Electric kettle with unique design of brushed and chrome stainless steel

It heats up water quickly and seems to be a quality product. . But then we’ve only been using it daily for a month.

Excellent machine and it’s reliable and simple to use.

Will not fit a childproof electrical outlet. Had to change the outlet to non-childproof.

KRUPS BW720D Performa Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle, 1.7-Liter, Silver :

This kettle leaks water from the bottom, when it is filled close to three-quarter’s full, in my experience.

This a simple no nonsense electric kettle. The water has no odor or taste added by the kettle. Construction and finish are superior. The kettle is used pretty much exclusively used for boiling water to make tea. I have no need of buttons and programs. This just has an on/off switch which is the only control i need on a kettle.

I like this electric kettle. I got it because after years of faithful service, our previous krups kettle finally wore out. This kettle heats quickly and is attractive. I like that there is a water level window on both sides of the kettle and i like the lever that turns it on. The only reason i gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that it is a little noisy, much more so than our previous kettle.

Heats quickly and looks nice. I wasn’t sure about the separate base but ended up really liking that feature.

After our last (much used) krups kettle died on us, i was worried i would not find one i liked as much. I like this one even better. It heats quickly, the open spout is nice and the filter is placed so that it will never fall out when pouring. The only drawbacks i can see arethat if you remove it from the base before it turns off, it will still be on when you replace it. Not a big issue, as it turns off it once it boils- or you can flip the lever off yourself – also the top opens by pressing a button but you have to close it by hand. Again, not a big issue, but your hand will leave prints which have to be cleaned off. I just use a dishtowel to push the lid shut. Would be nice to be able to close with a button as well, especially since it is a bit hot. Overall a great buy and i would purchase again.

I bought this as a christmas gift and am glad to say that it was a big hit.

Here’s the deal – electric tea pots are not going to last forever. A crappy one, you’ll never see two years. A good one, like this, you’ll get about five or six years out of. Something is going to happen – it’s going to leak, or stop working entirely. I estimate any way you slice it, you’re going to be spending roughly $20 a year on electric tea kettles. In this case, because it’s $100, assume you’ll get five years out of it. Aside from all that, it’s a well-made unit, with quality stainless steel inside. And yes, it’s made in china. The only complaint, is that the switch for opening the lid is a little funky, and doesn’t feel quite as solid as the rest of it. They last longer than other brands.

GE PEB7226DFBB Profile 2 : Perfect Replacement for older Built in Microwave

Item was no longer available through big box stores.

Echoing another review: i can’t comment on reliability (just received 2 days ago), but it was a perfect replacement for my ten-year old ge je2160bf03 built-in. No additional “trim kit” ($180) needed. The old built-in trim hardware was easy to transfer to this newer model. Slid right into place and looks great.

Today is 20 yr anniversary in our house and we started off with all white ge profile kitchen appliances. The fridge/freezer is still working fine, the oven, cooktop, and compactor are all fine. We have replaced the dishwasher 2 yrs ago. The ge profile microwave is another story. Now the 3rd one has just died after only 17 months (magnitronwe are told). So, keeping with the white, and having liked this model here, and because we have the built-in with frame,we are going to buy our fourth. Did not get the warranty before, but plan to on this one.

This microwave is the perfect replacement for my original unit. I didn’t have to replace the mounting kit from the old unit. It’s a powerful oven and plenty large enough for my needs. It is very quiet when operating. The black gloss finish is nice and easy to keep clean.

  • Good replacement for je2160bf03 – Didn’t need a trim kit upgrade
  • Hat finder

10/31/2015 update: the new microwave purchased april 2015 began to emit a rattling sound. Ge service changed out all the high voltage components, magnetron, transformer, etc. But the microwave continued to rattle. Ge service came in again and the technician saw sparks entering the cooking chamber from a burned-through hole close to the magnetron. The april 2015 microwave is now toast and i will receive a new one. I purchased this ge 1200 watt, 2. Ft microwave on another site. But my history is deep with this particular ge microwave lineage. This model has always had super power and an easy to understand interface.

Microwave arrived with dent in the side wall. Not worth the hassle of exchanging, but less than i would expect from geotherwise it functions as expected.

Does what it’s supposed to do. Except it only has one -not very loud- beep at end of the cook cycle.

Hopefully it will last many years.

This unit was purchased to replace a slightly older ge profile microwave. After installing this [more expensive] one, we realized it did not have the “reminder” feature which the other one had (and which we greatly miss). It is also a little noisier than the previous microwave. However, it does do the job it is meant to do–microwave food.

I can’t comment on durability since i literally just installed this myself yesterday, but i did want to mention a few things. I bought this to replace an older ge profile microwave (model je2160bf03) that died on me because a ge rep recommended it. This is for a built in cabinet setup. A lot of sites, ge reps, and reviewers mention you have to get a new trim kit (costs around $180 or so) for it. This wasn’t the case for my situation. I have a 30″ trim kit that was previously installed and i was still able to use the exact same one for this model. All the holes/screws line up the exact same and the venting works normal with the existing trim kit. So i’m not sure what everyone is talking about when they say you need to order a new one?. The trim kit i have was purchased in 2006 and works just fine with this model. I wanted to give my two cents on that in case anyone else was thinking of dropping another 200 bucks.

It’s large enough for big dishes. Loving it but does take up a lot of space but the size was known.

So far working great and looks good too with the built in trim kit.

Unfortunately, this is the third ge profile microwave i have had in the house in 17 years. So i guess a little over 5 years is life for these things. I got a 5 year warranty this time. All i worry about is finding it in 5 years. Or remembering i have it 🙂 while they work, they are great. Just expect to replace it about that time.

This was good buy n handle d perfect by amazon.

Everything is easily found on the panel; including instructions. It even reminds you if you turn it on with nothing inside. Big, be sure your space is the right size.

This microwave oven replaces another ge profile microwave oven that died after 11 years of service. The new microwave oven works fine, although it did arrive with a dent in the rear upper right hand corner of the cabinet. Apparently, this happened at the factory during packaging, as my husband unpacked the oven and stated that it was well insulated, and he did not believe it could have been damaged during shipping. This dent does not interfere with the oven’s performance. To date, we are very satisfied with it.

Good replacement for older unit.

This is very noisy compared to the unit, also a ge, that it replaced. We don’t like the noise and wonder if this unit is defective.

A little too big for the area that i had the older one in but over all its working well jane diaz.
