Cuisinart SPB-7 SmartPower 40-Ounce 7-Speed Electronic Bar Blender : Super blender

Great blender, but i warn you against using it for ice crushing. I had to replace three blade assemblies withing a six month period. I bought a kitchen aid, which has heavy duty blades and works well for ice crusing, but doesn’t blend nearly as well as the cuisinart. Also, the blade assembly in the k a has now given out, but its been doing yeoman service for a year. I’ve just bought a waring spb2 and so far, it crushes ice and a good job of blending, if you do both at the same time. Its container is a bit narrow for straight ice crusing. In that reagard, the k a is superior. Bottom line: using the waring, holding the other two in reserve, just in case.

I’m very happy with my blender. Also i’m very happy since i received it very fast i will be using it during the upcoming holidays. And the price is a good price and i save myself a trip to the store.

Having purchased cheaper blenders in the past, i decided to go with something a bit sturdier with more power. The cuisinart smartpower blender delivers on both counts. It has a substantially heavier glass container than most i’ve seen, and a powerful motor that had no problems shredding through ice. However, i made gazpacho with it once and did find that i had to redistribute the contents with a spatula in order to achieve consistency, even after i had prepped with a food processor, so thicker substances will get stuck away from the blade somewhat. It’s an attractive model with an integrated design that eliminates cracks and crevices where food can get stuck. The jar and blade are really easy to take apart and clean.

My original blender was destroyed after my son dropped it on more than one occassion. I loved the blender, but could not find it without the complete set, and i did not need a new set. I looked on amazon and found the blender. It matches the rest of the set i already own perfectly. This blender can cut up just about everything. The price and product were right so i brought it.

The feel of the blender makes it appear to be sturdy. Good and heavy and stable, a nice feel after looking at other blenders. We have currently owned this model but our daughter broke the glass jar and threw it away. Although the glass is available other parts of the jar were not. I was forced to buy a replacement blender. I have read some poor reviews of this item on amazon and don’t understand how the machine is a problem. We had our old blender for six years, used it often and never had any problems. I don’t feel anyone will be sorry for purchasing this blender.

I picked up one of these on sale locally. It does an adequate job of blending my morning smoothies, but just barely. I find it best to add frozen items slowly and in small pieces. There are days when the motor makes awful noises and i wonder if i need to stand back. It will suffice until i can afford something better. Meanwhile it is nice to know that i can get many spare parts here on amazon. For what it is, a low cost blender, i give it four stars.

This is an “awesome” blender. We already had a cuisinart spb-7 and have used it for almost a year now. So happy with the way it performs, we had to have another for our wet bar. The blades are really super sharp and can obliterate ice in seconds. Easy to clean up in the dishwasher. The guy who designed this one, had it all together.

This was a replacement of the same product but a slightly newer model.

As a thrift store find, i have no idea how old it is or how much it was used before coming into my hands. Therefore, i can’t review the longevity of this blender at all, and i don’t have the benefit of a user guide. The problems i have, you may not have. The lid of this thrift store blender has some orange staining inside which bleach soaking cannot remove. I would guess it is prone to staining for everyone. The lid fits snugly yet is easy to remove. The lid plug is snug yet easy to remove. The jar is glass and very sturdy. The blades inside the jar seem on the small side to me. However, i have been able to blend smoothies with frozen spinach and raw kale; i can’t complain about the performance.

I’ve had this blender for about a year now, and use it regularly to make smoothies or soups. The ‘digital’ control panel seemed a little gimicky at first, but i’ve learned to appreciate the easy cleanup that it allows with a sponge. The wide openings of the heavy glass jar (which is much sturdier than most) allow for easy cleaning and pouring, and the motor has more than enough power for everything i’ve thrown at it. My only complaint is that the rubber lid stained when i blended some hot tomato soup in it. The instruction manual warns against blending hot liquids however, and the stain is purely cosmetic and on the inside of the lid where it isn’t visible. The plastic base of the jar also seems like it would be prone to snapping over time, but in my frequent use of the blender i haven’t had any troubles with it. Overall i would highly recommend this blender over the cheaper alternatives, the heavy glass jar, sharp blade and powerful motor make it a joy to use.

Does a great job and clean up is a breeze.

I purchased this same blender well over five years ago. My partner and i use it 5-6 days a week and usually one or two times a day making post work-out smoothies. This machine easily blends ice and large chunks of frozen fruit including large frozen strawberries with no difficulty. This blender worked flawlessly for all these years until the black spindle that rotates the blades in the container finally sheared off. Everything wears out eventually. Frankly, i’m surprised it lasted as long as it did. The blender is very easy to clean with its smooth face and the glass jar managed hundreds of trips through a hot dishwasher. I just wished that i bought a second glass pitcher soon after my initial purchase. It would have been terrific to use one pitcher while the other was in the dishwasher. Considering the workout we gave this blender i feel it has held up beautifully and was definitely worth the price.

I had used this product while on vacation and liked how it liquified kaleand frozen fruits.

As expected very clean and functional.

I use it every morning to make a fruit smoothie. Easy to use and easy to clean. I bought this last month to replace the same model that i had been using daily for four years. I had broken the jar and decided to replace the entire unit because it had discolored somewhat over time. The motor was still working after four years so now i have it in storage for a backup.

I have had my blender for two years without a problem. I have just spent the past hour reading blender reveiws, and my conclusion is that this blender is comparable to any other good blender at any price point. If i am making smoothies and the fruit is ice solid and i have placed a lot of fruit in the belnder, i will have to stir it. But, no blender, save an industrial version, such as the kind they use at jamba juice, is going to do better. It crushes ice well and has never leaked. All of the speeds work properly and it is easy to clean. The lid, however is vinyl, so if you are going to place it in the dishwaher, please be aware of the food remains in the washer with it. White will stain regardless of the manufacturer.

I’ve had this blender for over a year now and it has yet to let me down. It looks great, and is a snap to use. In addition, the base comes apart into several pieces so that it can be cleaned easily without leaving any `gunk’ behind. I’ve never had any problem with ice; this thing just chews it up. The wide range of controls is a plus because i use this thing for everything, from pureed vegetables for soups to milk shakes.

I love this blender, it really works. I care of it like a child, i never left it dirty. It does incredible shakes and more.

I recieved this blender as a wedding gift and was so excited. But it has really not met my expectations. Its first or second trip through the dishwasher turned my lid pink. Apparently there may have been a slight remnant of tomato sauce on a plate in the dishwasher, and that in turn stained my lid. I called cuisinart and they didn’t seem to agree this was a problem. After some arm twisting they agreed to send me a new white lid, but warned me that it would happen again if i put it in the dishwasher with anything dirty again. Lid problems aside, the blender works pretty well, but doesn’t do a terribly fantastic job crushing ice really fine. I would probably suggest looking into waring instead of cuisinart for a good blender.

Cuisinart TOB-100BW Compact Digital Toaster Oven Broiler, Perfect oven for us!!

I’ve been using my new cuisinart for about a month and have come across no problems. This little toaster oven replaced both my old black and decker toaster oven and my toaster. The old b&d oven was bulky and did not have a timer so had to be watched carefully. It also had a (probably) safety feature that turned the oven off every time the door was opened. I found that to be a nuisance since i had to turn it back on each time i checked whatever was cooking. This new little cuisinart allows me to check without turning off the heat and also i really like having the timer so i usually don’t even have to open the door until the food is ready. As to the other comments about condensation on the door when toasting, it does sometimes do that. I ignore it as it causes no problems and it doesn’t bother me. I like the easy to clean pull-out tray. It takes much less space than the two old appliances it replaced.

I ordered this toaster oven as a replacement. The description on the size was not at all what the actual inside measurements of the oven were. The outside dimensions were not even what was described. There was nothing at all wrong with the oven except size and it was obvious the moment i unpacked it. It was returned and i received a refund. I had no problems with the company or product other than the small size.

I got it for $60 when it was on sale in amazon. For $60, i can give it 4 stars. Next time, i will probably get non-digital version. Two heating rods on top, and two on bottom. Bad: for the exterior size, the interior size is not efficient. It can only have one tray (instead of two trays – one on top and another on bottom). The auto-pop-out tray and auto-shut-down door have too strong spring that the banging sound is too laud. The beep sound is somewhat annoying. Too many options – toast/bagel/left over/baking/broil/etc/etc. It takes ~ 1 min till it goes sleep mode (blue flashing buttons are annoying).

Comments from buyers

“Comprehensive review: Cuisinart TOB100 toaster oven
, Very Good Compact Digital Toaster
, It’s a smart toaster

Just received this yesterday. I wanted a toaster oven that would fit into my microwave oven that is installed above my stove. This oven fits inside so i don’t need counter space for it. It is simple and easy to use (i just looked at the pictured ‘get started’ sheet). I do place it on the counter while in use for safety.

This is the third try, but we’ve finally found the toaster oven we love. It’s small enough to fit on our short counter, but is deep enough to fit the pans we use in it length-wise. We love that it is digital and the buttons can easily be read.

Will do anything a full size oven will do. Completely digital, compact to the point it does not crowd the kitchen counter. We have had ‘toaster’ ovens since they first came out and used one every day. This oven even has a ‘keep warm’ feature. Once set up, each piece of toast is cook to the same degree of doneness. It broils, it bakes and makes pancakes.

I wanted digital due to the specific minute timing that i need for my pet’s food. So, i was limited to options. I have used cuisinart in the past where i had a better quality and more expensive unit. It worked great but it’s looks were not great. This unit is good but obviously not as good as my past unit that cost $175 which i bought several years ago. Working this unit is tricky when you want to customize some of the settings. It took me several attempts before i learned how to do it. I am really good with machines but, this one challenged me. I got it now and i am generally pleased with it.

At first this looks like your average ordinary toaster oven but as you keep trying you cook things you will find you have a gem. I baked a bundt cake last night. Besides it does all the other functions of a toaster oven very well. Very nice product & purchase. One year late, and this thing caught afire in my home. Thank god i did not go back to sleep.

A much-welcome addition to our kitchen. Crumb tray is easy enough to remove and the broiler rack & drip pan have been pretty useful at times. I suppose there is some uber-toaster out there that does all kinds of stuff i can’t even imagine a toaster doing, and so be it: but, for my family’s humble toasting needs, this thing does just fine.

I’ve had this toaster oven for a couple of weeks now and use it daily. It replaced a $30 toastmaster i’ve had for ages. 5′ high, 10′ deep and 14′ wide. That’s smaller than my old toaster and gives me more counter space. Easily removable crumb pan – i love that feature. Where it reads ‘cuisinart’ at the bottom, it pulls right out (see photo) from the outside. I pull it out after each use to clear off any debris, so nothing gets baked on. Automatic rack slide out – when you open the door, the rack slides out a couple of inches. Ease of use – it’s very intuitive and simple.

My wife just purchased the cuisinart tob-100 compact digital toaster using her account, as another black and decker toaster died. We’ve had three black and decker toasters in a row over the last 15 years or so because they have been a great value, however each successive unit has failed more rapidly. We decided to spend a bit more money for the stainless steel look and the cusinart brand (hoping for lasting quality). We found that we did not want a huge toaster and noticed that this one is similar in size as before. We made our buying decision when we learned that the tob-100 was also digital and the price was right at $100. Since this is an early review (looks like the first), we decided to give the tob-100 4-stars, however it could earn 5-stars later when we update our review and have more experience with the product. What you see in the pictures is what you’re going to get. The tob-100 looks roomy and the unit and accessories look beautiful. There were no unexpected or unpleasant surprises when it arrived at home.

It arrived in time, packaged very well. It has been working well since it arrived almost 2 months ago. I replaced a larger toaster oven with this because i wanted a smaller footprint on my counter. I use the bakemode most often for open faced sandwiches or frozen entrees. The one thing i do not especially like is the baking pan provided. I’m not sure what it is, definitely not steel. It is a very dull aluminum that absorbs and hold stains. I’ll look for a suitable pan to replace it.

The unit is beautiful but it takes some learning to figure out the right darkness settings. For example, on 2, it makes very dark toast but requires a 5 to get equally dark on a bagel. As an oven, for cooking or reheating, it works exactly as it should.

It seems to be hard to find toaster ovens with good usability and reliability. I wanted a digital display that would have a preheating indicator and this one fit the bill. It’s met all of my expectations. Food comes out great, and it does come with a baking pan as described. The display is backlit and easy to read. One possible annoyance is that entering time and temperature is a little awkward, but you get used to it. What’s not apparent from the instructions is that when the preheated indicator sounds, the entered time starts counting down immediately. To work around this i just leave it at the default 30 minute timer when preheating, and set the time after putting the food in. While the control panel could be improved, the toaster oven works great and that’s what counts.

Overall i really like this device. I use it for toasting sandwiches and bagels, but also for baking meats and small pizzas. The dial that controls selection is a little hard to use because it can be tricky to see what is selected. I’d almost rather just have temperature and time, rather than a list of: toast, bagel, sandwich, leftovers.

Several years ago we bought a similar cuisinart for our own use. This one was for a family member. Here’s what we found:• exterior metal surface (top) is not a shiny chrome finish; it will dull and be harder to keep clean• metal tray (for baking) is small and flimsy, but its rack is more substantial• settings are easy to read and select• unit heats quickly and efficiently• capacity is small in relation to the bulk of the unitwe bought this unit based on experience with our own cuisinart toaster oven. Frankly, it appears that the finish and capacity of the one we bought five years ago is superior. Had we realized these changes were substantial, we probably would have looked at other brands. It’s not that this is a ‘bad’ toaster oven, it’s simply that it didn’t live up to our expectations. It makes me wonder if cuisinart sold the right to its name to another party in order to produce these toaster ovens.

It has very bright blue leds on the front. After you finish cooking something and return to the main screen, the blue leds blink repeatedly. But it drives me crazy that i can’t turn off the lights or put the unit to sleep. After 2 minutes, the unit goes to sleep. If you touch a dial or push a button, it wakes back up and blicks for another two minutes, regardless of whether you cook something or not. It cooks my food well, it’s a good size, it look nice. I would probably give it 4 stars if the damn lights didn’t blink. ***update***it should also be noted that the unit defaults to 30 min when baking. 10 minutes is all you need for sandwiches and wraps. So if you plan to cook for shorter times like me, you must turn the dial 3 or 4 times to change it to 10 min.

I was looking to replace an old toaster oven but didn’t want one that was too large (counter hogging). This one fit the bill and even though it was expensive it works really well. I had never had a digital toaster oven so i had to kind of figure it out but it works great. It does tend to make the toast pretty dark so be careful on the settings. We use it for toasting and reheating so i can’t say how it does on baking. I use my regular oven for baking anyway. I love that the crumb tray is easy to remove and clean so i tend to clean it more often than the old style, which had a hinged crumb tray. The door does steam up with use but we leave it cracked just a little after using it and the steam quickly evaporates from the glass.

I’ve only had this oven for a few days, but would like to share my experience so far. My primary use is to toast bread and bagels, and to bake frozen foods. We’re empty nesters, so i didn’t need anything real big, and did not need convection. I also wanted something that i didn’t need to put glasses on to set. The controls needed to be easy to read and understand. This unit accomplishes these requirements very well. This is a small toaster oven. If you need bigger, you should obviously look elsewhere. It will toast 4 slices of bread or 2 bagels sliced in half though. The display is nice and bright, and easy to read.

Please watch the video as well as reading this review. It contains perhaps the most important thing you should know when choosing a toaster oven. The model tob100 is one of a series of ovens from cuisinart that share very similar design and construction, with the control panel being the primary difference. Some of the models are either fully or partially electronic, while some of the other ovens use mechanical knobs. There is likely no significant difference in how well one design will toast or cook compared to the other and the choice of which type of controls comes down to personal preference. For me, after trying the units with mechanical knobs (which ordinarily i would prefer as being generally more dependable) there was one feature that swayed me away from buying that style – the fact that with the mechanical knobs cuisinart makes the customer select the shade of toast each and every time they use it as a function of the timer dial, and on some models the unit can’t even be left in the toast position for next time but has to be turned to ‘off’ each time. So at least two settings have to be selected each time one chooses to toast a slice of bread. The tob100 will remember your last setting so the simple act of making toast can be to press just one button. All of the cuisinart toaster ovens in this series are moderately well made of an attractive grade of stainless steel (one of the models has a black painted body with a stainless front). They all have a mechanism that will pull the shelf out slightly when the door is opened and all have a large glass door.

Very interesting design and takes a bit to get used to. Not just your normal push and plunge. Lots of options for cooking and toasting and we’re still playing with it. But the ability to change 3 variables (cooking method, time, temp/darkness) is helpful in getting the right result. Only negative thing we’ve found that for bagels, even at the lowest setting, still turns them too dark (for our liking). I can’t imagine what the higher settings would do. But at the lowest they’re ok. The bell that goes off to let you know the food is done works well and gets your attention. Has a small, compact design which fits our counter space nicely. We don’t use a regular toaster, and have been searching for a while for a new toaster oven, and this one finally seems to do the job.

We have been pleased with this toaster oven as it heats quickly and cooks efficiently and as well. The only real negative that i have to report is that the little cooking tray that you put food on to bake or warm, has no ‘lip’ or handle to grab on to, and it makes it very very hard to get it out of the oven over the ridge of the sliding rack that it is sitting on. Our other toaster ovens had a piece of the baking sheet that protruded enough to get the oven mitt latched on to it, but this one means you have to reach into the oven to try to maneuver it out and over the rack. Maybe not a big deal but it is a bit inconvenient. Otherwise everything else seems to be working just fine for our uses. I have baked the freezer to oven pre made cookies in this, heated up sandwiches, pizza and other pastry and warmed up some lasagna, etc. And it has worked well for all of those things. I also have used it for toasting but bought it mostly for the oven and a way to heat up and crisp up leftovers without having to wait for the big oven to preheat. I give it 4 star instead of five due to the lack of the handle on the tray/baking sheet and how difficult it is to get it out without getting your hand into the oven itself.

This is a very nice small unit. The only problemi have had is turning it on and off if i changemy mind with the set up to cook. Otherthan ‘the learning curve’, it is a great little unit. Their customer service isgreat. I have a knife set that they helped mewith immediately. It does not take as long to heat up like myother brand toaster oven which was huge.

I read all the reviews on this toaster oven and wasn’t sure if it was what i wanted. But i have had it for six weeks and am very happy with it. I have toasted bread, cooked frozen bagels, melted cheese on toast, baked biscuits and spring rolls, and tonight our first sweet potato. This is my first digital toaster oven and it took me a while to get used to that, but now i love it. The only ‘con’ i see is that the rack does not slide in and out easily. I do see some condensation on the door but it doesn’t drip on the counter as some reviews mentioned. It would be nice if the oven temp could be set in less than 25 degree increments, but that’s not a big deal. I did not find the beeps indicating ‘at temp’ or ‘done’ to bother me at all. They are no more than you hear on a microwave. So i was a little apprehensive when i bought it, but it has exceeded my expectations.

Cuisinart DLC-2ASM Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor : Love it!

Cute and lightweight and works well.

I like this little puppy a lot. Love the shade of blue, and love that it’s perfect for making pureed foods for my husband following his gastric bypass. I’ve made creamed cauliflower and we puree his campbell’s soups in this before adding water and heating. The only issue is that it doesn’t lock in the “on” mode – you have to hold down the button. I also would not recommend this for very large jobs, such as coleslaw for a party, unless you don’t mind chopping/mixing in batches. Plusses:great colorblends wellblades nice and sharpgood motoreasy to cleanminuses:does not lock on “on” positionsome leakage noted on the blade pin when i disassembled for washing, but did not leak into motor.

Great for making baby food purees.

  • Cuisinart food processor in blue
  • Still a five-star!
  • Excellent product. Chops onions

Cuisinart DLC-2ASM Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor, Sapphire

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 3-Cup work bowl with handle
  • Exclusive auto-reversing Smart Power blade for two powerful processing options
  • Spatula and instruction/recipe book
  • Stainless steel blade with sharp and blunt edges
  • Dishwasher-Safe parts

I bought this cuisinart food processor mainly to chop items like onions and peppers to use in homemade salsa. I’ve had it for a few months, and it works really great. It chops food quickly and easily, as long as you don’t overfill the bowl. I recommend reading the instructions beforehand. I love the blue color; it looks so nice. My only negative with this product is that it is quite small. I do wish they had one that was sized larger than this but smaller than the heavy duty professional 12-cup cuisinart food processor. Overall, a good buy, and it does what it says it will do. I like this product and would recommend others buy it.

I bought this to replace an older cuisinart food processor. I wanted something that was smaller and had a good name. I saw all the colors and knew i wanted the sapphire but the the watermelon was close. It is just perfect for my needs. It looks great in my kitchen as i have blue glass tiles a backsplash.

Having used this for several months, i reiterate my rating as a five-star product.

Great price – packaged securely.

Just wish it was a little bigger, but that’s my own fault.

I expected too much from this mini-version of the workhorse full sized cuisinart food processor we’ve had for (yes) 30 years. I wanted a slicer that was sufficient for preparing meals for 2. It does what it’s intended to do but i wouldn’t call it a food processor if all it can do is chop.

It’s a great little processor. So much easier to get out than my big one.

Recommend to any one wanting to shred.

I received on time and it has worked perfectly.

This one is replacing one i’ve had for years. Actually, i really only needed to replace the blade as it was showing wear at the base, but for a little more money, i got the whole machine.

Chops onions, garlic, pepper, practically any veggies and saves the time of having to cut them yourself. Very happy with the product. Have used it a couple of times a week when prepping dinner.

Use it nearly every day to grind meats, chop garlic, prepare salad dressings, etc. Bought as presents for family members.

This was a wedding gift but i have always used a cuisinart mini prep food processor. It works great and forest take up a lot of counter space. Perfect for small kitchens, but perfect for anybody and any size kitchen.

No more crying chopping onions.

I am very satisfied with the cuisinart processor and would gladly recommend it.

It’s perfect for chopping nuts, making a quick salsa, or making breadcrumbs from leftover bread.

The product is great, just the color is not bright as picture.

Best price, best size, best mini chopper we have ever used,.

Cuisinart CPK-17 Programmable Kettle : Highly recommend.

Works great love the programmable temp.

I am a tea lover and thought this would be too much trouble choosing what type of tea, but this is the most simple electric kettle i have ever used.

Not bad , does what it should, i only heat with full pot use what i need and pore out the rest out while still hot leaving top open so it drys fast with no wiping. No complaints so far, owned about a month.

I actually really love this kettle. However less then a month after i received it, it started leaking excessively. I would come back after using it and turning it off and my counter and floor would be covered in water from the kettle. Because it’s exactly past one month after the purchase date – not when i received it, i am unable to return it. I bought a square trade extended warrantee which is basically a joke. I don’t think i’m going to see any help in getting a replacement or refund. I should have just bought this from a regular store where they would have replaced it.

  • Loved it but it started leaking only one month after I bought it. Can’t return it, warranty from “Square Trade” useless!!
  • Highly recommend.
  • I love this unit

It is good, but the button are oven pressed by mistake, it becomes very hot , and it is heavy, but it functions good.

I used an external thermometer to test the accuracy and it was dead on. The “keep warm” function is useful as i like to walk away and take my time. I also use this for my french press coffee.

My son bought one for me for my birthday. I’ve had it over a year and it still works perfectly.

Our unit looks great and is good with making hot water at a variety of temperatures, its just that the lid won’t close any time it gets even a little warm. I can close it afterwards (usually), but its rather annoying for the price we paid for it.

I’ve had two of these kettles, each purchased at bloomingdales. They do not last beyond two to three years. I like the programmable feature; however, they do not last long. Personally, i think they should last longer.

I replaced a more expensive breville product. I brew tea every day and i like the water temperature to be a specific temperature, this is good looking, easy to use, easy to keep clean.

I fought with myself over this electric verse a whistling kettle. I went with this one and i loveeeeee it.

We use this to heat the water for our french press.

I have been using this thing everyday for a couple weeks. It works very well and heats the water quickly. Common water temps are programmed for 1 button operation.

It does what it say it will.

It is as awesome at a tea pot can be.

Excellent product easy to use.

After reviewing so many tea kettles, i decided to purchase cuisinart cpk-17 programmable kettle. First of all, it’s made of stainless steel which preserves the taste of water and doesn’t give off hint of rusty taste. It looks so neat in our modern kitchen. I love having 6 temperature modes so you can choose a different setting for each kind of tea. I drink herbal teas all the time and it’s a big no-no to use boiling water as it ruins the taste and its healthy properties. My husband loves green tea which needs even lower temperature. 7-liter capacity is pleanty for a big family or having guests over. As a mom, i love having non-slip stay-cool handle and ability to use the lowest temperature for my little one. Plus, it’s bpa free and doesn’t accumulate mineral build up on the bottom.

Cuisinart Rotary Belgian Waffle Maker, Great product!

I just replaced my old waring pro waffle iron (wmk300a) with this cuisinart. The weird thing is, it’s the same waffle maker as my old waring, but now branded cuisinart and only made for the canadian market. Both waring and cuisinart are brands of parent company conair. Waring has a new model for the us but it looks cheaper than this one. I was able to make 5 years’ worth of delicious waffles with my old one before it broke, and the waffles were amazing. I saw in comments in the reviews that the canadian warranty for this item will not be honored in the us, which had me worried. However, amazon offers a square trade warranty that you can get for this item. I just got off the phone with square trade, and confirmed that their warranty will be honored in the us, even during the first year. Hope this helps — i am looking forward to another 5 years of waffles from this great machine.

Makes light fluffy waffles and the temperature settings are great to individualize everyone’s preference. I just brush a little butter on the hot plates and then the waffle comes right out without prying. Easy cleaning which is the most important feature. Is the handle supposed to straighten completely?.

“A great waffle iron

, This is a great waffle maker

Use it at least 3 times a week.

I tried this waffle maker for the first time and it was wonderful. The waffles turned out light and delicious. I am not a great cook but i found this to be very easy (foolproof). Once i got the heat settings right for my personal preference, i just kept making more and more. I read previous reviews and let the waffle iron heat up longer than the first set of beeps and then started cooking. I found the #4 heat setting a bit too high with the first waffle then adjusted it down a couple of times until i got it just right. I had no mess and the machine is pretty easy to clean up. Would definately recommend it.

This is a great waffle maker, our grand children just love the waffles it makes. It is well make, easy to use and makes waffles quickly. There are new versions of this appliance, we really liked this one.

It makes restaurant quality waffles with ease.

I have had this waffle iron for almost a year now and still love it. Easy controls let you get the beautiful golden brown waffle.

Makes the best waffles ever.

Love this waffle maker and it is very affordable.

We owned a waring waffle maker previously, which broke after 20 wonderful years of making tasty waffles. The cuisinart (sister company to waring) is priced significantly less, but does not bake as well as the waring did. Cuisinart recommends setting the temperature at 4; however, the lowest we can get the waffles to brown is setting the temperature at 5. The plates in the cuisinart are not as heavy as the waring, which might be part of the problem with waffles browning. On the other hand, the cuisinart is several hundred dollars cheaper than the waring, which was a commercial unit. Guess you can’t have it both ways.

Easy to use and easy to clean. The biggest problem is the cord to plug in is very very short, really needs to be longer. If i had known how short it was i would not have bought the item. Called company and they said use a extension cord, which is stupid to use in my kitchen on my counter. Because it is so short it hits the upper cubbards and it won’t stay open by itself.

Tried a cheaper model, but you get what you pay for.

We use it in our bed & breakfast.

Browning dial features is actually ‘temperature’. 5 for cooked but not dried out waffle. 5 for a bit more browning and slight crispiness without dryness. 3 if you plan to reheat waffles later by toasting, which is the best method.

I grew up with one of these and have looked for one for the passed 7 years. Jc penny was where my family got it from back in the day and thanks to amazon i now have the best, heavy duty and legit belgian waffle maker. Forget bed bath and beyonds waffle makers.

This waffle maker does a fantastic job if you know how to use it. To get perfect waffles, set the temperature gauge to a little over 1/2 and wait for the light to turn green. Spray the grates heavily with a light cooking oil on top and bottom just before cooking (when they are already hot). Pour the batter into the center of the grill and close/flip. When the wafflemaker beeps, you’re done. If you want to do multiple waffles, just toggle the power on/off quickly to reset the timer and repeat.

My husband loves the hotel waffle makers so i decided to buy him one. This met all our expectations: easy to use, great waffles, doesn’t stick, easy cleanup. And the price is extremely reasonable compared to other products.

Studied competitive brands and the customer evaluations. Selected this brand and so far i am completely satisfied with my choice. Works great with easy cleanup after use.

Have used this appliance nearly every weekend since unpacking it in november 2012. Makes perfect waffles for us on setting 5. We now listen to jazz and eat waffles in our jammies at home on sundays instead of going out.

I’ve been using it on a fairly regular basis for quite a while now and haven’t had any issues. It does feel a lot lighter than it looks in the pictures; the base is (fairly sturdy) plastic rather than metal, as it appears in the pictures, but it still functions well and is nice and sturdy, so no points off.

The only problem is storage,it takes up a lot of space.

This is the best waffle maker i’ve ever had.

I think this is the best waffle iron on the market for the price. It might seem silly but i love the pre-measured scoop that comes with it so that i do not spill waffle mix all over the side of the iron. I had almost forgotten how much i love waffles.

Cuisinart U834664C RBT-875PC Countdown 4-Slice Stainless Steel Toaster, Seems like sometimes it only toasts on one side of the

Husband making toast everyday now lol.

Still trying to get used to it. Seems like sometimes it only toasts on one side of the bread.

I replaced my kitchenaid toaster with this cuisinart because my old toaster was permanently stuck on bagel mode. Cuisinart looks better and i like the fact that it has separate sides for toast so all the burners don’t need to turn on for a single slice. I love the blue led display lights but my only complaint is that after toasting is complete, the blue lights stay on for 5 minutes before turning off and i worried that the toaster was still on. Maybe cuisinat thought we needed night lights. I would have given 5 stars if not for this. But, the cuisinart seems to toast much faster than previous toaster and the ‘i’m done toasting’ beeps are handy. It has wide toast slots that only once did not return all the way to the top when i toasted extremely fat bagels. I have not touched the toaster to see if it gets hot, buy hey, its a toaster and i’d expect it to get hot. Otherwise this toaster works perfectly and looks high tech.

Key specs for Cuisinart U834664C RBT-875PC Countdown 4-Slice Stainless Steel Toaster:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Four wide self-adjusting toasting slots – center and hold thick bagels
  • Bagels to thin breads for perfect results
  • LCD countdown displays with bars
  • Disappear as toasting time elapses
  • One-touch shade controls – increase or decrease toasting time

Comments from buyers

“Cuisinart delivers again with toaster!
, Seems like sometimes it only toasts on one side of the
, Four Stars

Loud beep when finished but we like it.

Toasts just fine, but two very loud beeps when done. I like to toast early morning when rest of house still asleep, really don’t like this feature and no way to turn it off.

Hard to buy an efficient toaster for my morning english muffin. Usually toasts only one section and takes too long. This toaster is the best so far. Toasts the whole area and doesit quickly. Lift handle so you don’t have to dig into toast to retrieve. Costs a few bucks more but does it’s job.

Replaced an aging t fal 4 slice, and is superior in every way. Cant believe some of the posts here- the warning tone for the end of the cycle is great, the exterior doesn’t get too hot, the choices of darkness are on target, and the toast cycle is fast. All together an excellent buy.

A little bit bigger than i expected but works great.

Bagel came out perfect – the bagel setting allows you to toast the cut side more so it doesn’t come out all hard. There is also a defrost setting that allows you to put frozen slices in. The machine will defrost before toasting. The lcd screen works great counting down with bars how much time is left before toast is done. It will beep once when toast is done, so no annoying constant beeping. The two small crumb trays on the bottom are easy to remove, with my old one i had to remove practically the whole bottom and it would still be attached to the toaster, so very awkward to remove crumbs. Mind you i did not buy this one on amazon. I had a much better deal at my costco-sorry amazon.

The right side is a little hard to push down.

Our old one was worn out, so it’s good to have a toaster. On the highest setting, it toasts both sides unevenly, and the outer-most side of the bred is still white in places. You have to put it down for a second toasting if you like it done all over. It screeches loudly, twice, when the toast is done. Irritating, and not necessary. If you wanted toast, how far away are you going to get from it?.

A little lite on the toasting at #4, but works fine.

Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker : Well made and super-easy to use!

We have used this ice cream maker over and over, and it keeps on making us happy. The mechanics are so basic that i believe it will keep on working for many years. The capacity of the 1-1/2 quart container is perfect for a family of 7 to enjoy a nice treat after a day at the cabin (where we have used it most). The instructions are simple, the recipe options are endless once you get the basics down and then go online to find all sorts of new ideas. We love this so much we bought one for our son’s in-laws, which they use all the time, and we bought one for the cabin, which gets used all the time.

This ice cream maker is so easy to use mix your ingredients in a bowl, assemble your icm and turn it on. Pour ingredients in, set a timer for 20 minutes. I bought this 3 months ago, and have used it a lot. Notes:store the metal canister upside down in your freezer, so it will always be ready to use. Always mix the ingredients in a bowl first, before pouring into your icm. Add ingredients like choc chips, nuts, etc during the last 5 minutes. Don’t use a metal spoon to remove your ice cream from the metal canister and then complain that your canister is scratched. Use a plastic or wooden spoon.

After it’s been frozen in the freezer it is quite hard and has to be left out 10-15 minutes before eating. I searched on line for a solution and was unsuccessful. The machine turns out chocolate and strawberry ice cream in fifteen minutes. Occasionally when it is churning, the top needs to be secured or it doesn’t turn properly. Because of this i stay nearby until it’s finished. This is definitely an economy machine but it works for me. I make raw milk/cream ice cream with a sugar substitute called just like sugar. It’s the only way for me to have it.

We’ve used this several times for fresh peach, strawberry, and cookies and cream ice cream.

  • This is a great ice cream maker!
  • My review After Ten Years
  • Love it

Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker, White

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Electric ice-cream maker produces up to 1-1/2 quarts in about 20 minutes
  • Easy to use–no salt or ice required; chills to desired consistency
  • Transparent top locks into place for safety and convenient monitoring
  • Nonstick chamber ensures quick cleanup; instruction booklet with recipes included
  • Measures 10 by 10 by 15 inches; 3-year limited warranty

Ok so i went from usuing a blender to this ice cream maker. My friends have the bigger one but this one is perfict for me. My first attempt at making ice cream i choose to make vanilla with chocolate chips. Ok so i took everyones advice on the reviews and froze the bowl for two days for my first time. Then when i was ready to make ice cream i poured the milk and the creamer in seperate glasses and placed them back in the fridge just because it said to keep them cold then when i was all set up and ready to get started after i had already measured out the ingredients and had them all set aside. I did this so that when i was ready to get the bowl out of freezer i wouldnt waste time measuring and stuff because i read that the bowl starts defrosting right away so i didnt want to give it time. Ok so once ready i got my mixing bowl and mixed all my ingredents except the chocolate chips i left those in fidge till ready. So after mixing i grabbed the bowl from freezer set it on the ice cream maker base and poured the mixed ingredients in and pushed button on. Let it go for 25 min then with five min left to mix i added the chocolate chips and let it keep mixing for the last five min. It was so thick and creamy looking.

The first several times i used this product, it didn’t seem to work–the ice cream never really froze, it just turned into a very cold soupy sludge. I had checked all the obvious things–made sure the bowl was completely frozen, made sure my ingredients were well-chilled, didn’t overload it and let it run the recommended amount of time. I was going to return it, but thanks to all the positive reviews here, i thought maybe there was something i was doing wrong. For flavoring, i was always using a certain artificial vanilla flavor that i like. And because i like it, i use a lot of it. One of the main ingredients of this flavoring is propylene glycol. If any of you who read this are chemistry buffs, i’ll bet you’re laughing now. Propylene glycol is often used in food flavorings and colorings, but also is used as antifreeze when a non-toxic antifreeze is required. So i was pouring in a good deal of edible antifreeze with my ingredients–next time i’ll just use chocolate or somethingso, if you’re having trouble getting your ice cream to freeze and you’ve checked everything else, make sure your flavorings don’t contain propylene glycol.

Finally i can make my own frozen desserts. I am still tweaking recipes, buy it is a great buy. The freezer bowl is fantastic; it really freezes stuff. Be sure to look up the use of additives like guar gum and and such, for helping to create a softer product. Once the ice cream has been in freezer for a while, it becomes quite hard. You hace to letnit mrlt a bit. Xthan and guar gums, very small amounts, givr a more workable product.

There is only 2 of us, and so many ice cream makers make too much, and require the use of salt. My husband, who is a self proclaimed non-cook who can only grill, is the official ice cream maker in the house because it is that easy. You do have to cook the base and cool it before you put it in the maker, as well as chill the inner liner, so be sure to plan ahead. Comes with recipes that are easy enough for even my non-cook to make, and gives you plenty of ideas for alternatives for the recipes they do provide. After using a larger one of a different brand that required the salt, my husband proclaims this the best ice cream maker yet.

Does a remarkably good job and is a good value for the price. To get the best results, follow the directions, including letting the ice cream rest in the freezer several hours (one hour?) before enjoying. I found that i need a sharp-edged hard plastic spatula (long) to scrape the walls down while it is working; otherwise, the cold transfer from the wall become slowed by the ‘crust’ of clinging ice cream mix. Also, it works best if you do not overload it. Obviously mine is robust and reliable.

We have been using this ice cream maker every week since it has arrived. We keep the canister in the freezer all the time, so we are always ready to make dairy free ice cream. One thing i have learned since using this, is to make sure you turn on the machine and let it run a little bit before pouring in the ingredients. This will keep the ice cream from sticking to the sides. This is a great ice cream maker.

Cuisinart SPB-600MR SmartPower Deluxe Die Cast Blender : Very happy with this

We wanted something that actually can blend frozen stuff. Nothing out there was cutting it (pun intended). At best, you could hand blend in between pulses to assist the blender. Back in the day, if you get a finger in there, it might get cut up some. In this blender it will get cut off and chopped into a billion tiny pieceswith this thing, hit the button and stand back because whatever is inside is going to be devastated by 600-watts pushing hardened steel blades. I filled it with ice to test it and it pulverized the ice in seconds. Yes, it is heavy – it’s a 600-watt motor in a steel casing.Also, the can is real glass, not some cheap plastic.

I have had this product now for a few weeks and used it several times to make smoothies, milkshakes, frozen margaritas and frozen daiquiris. I just couldn’t see spending the money on a vitamix for my purposes so i did the research to find the best reasonably priced blender. So far, i would have to say i think i found it. I am very pleased with this product so far and would highly recommend it. If i have any problems down the road, i will update this review.

Cuisinart SPB-600MR SmartPower Deluxe Die Cast Blender, Metallic Red

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • High-performance 600-watt motor with die-cast metal housing with stainless steel collar
  • Sleek 4-speed electronic touchpad controls with blue indicators: high, low, pulse and Ice crush controls
  • Standby mode; automatic 2-minute auto-stop feature
  • 48-Ounce thermal shock-resistant borosilicate glass jar and a patented ultra-sharp stainless steel blade
  • Tight-seal lid with 2-ounce measure pouring cap insert

This is the second cuisinart i’ve owned, the first one lasting many years with excellent service. This one is almost twice as powerful with 600 watts. The surprise bonus is that the glass container on the old and new one are the same, so i have a replacement if i break it. The cuisinart container is unique in that it is wide at the bottom, making it easier to rinse out and get the blades clean without washing it. The other advantage with cuisinart is that you can dissemble the jar from the blades and the holder it screws into, making it a breeze to clean thoroughly. Just pop the jar and the holder in the dishwasher, and clean the blades and gasket by hand (don’t want to put the blades in the dishwasher. The only reason i don’t give it 5 stars is that it’s loud. But, they’re all loud, even the $500 units. You’d think by now they can make them as quite as food processors.

I just couldn’t bite the bullet and buy a vitamix blender for $400 or $500 — that seemed insane to me. I checked reviews and know from experience that cuisinart products are typically really reliable, so finally settled on this blender, and it’s been great. I’ve mainly used it to make smoothies and mixed drinks and it works wonderfully for both. Once you get the hang of it, everything will pour out of the blender at the exact consistency you’re looking for. My only concerns: if you let the blender run for a while, it will give off a slight electric motor odor, like the motor is getting too hot. It’s never malfunctioned, though. Also, i believe the manual said that it’s optional to remove the bottom of the blender (the part that screws on and off) when you’re cleaning it, but take it from me — if you want it clean, you need to remove the bottom and wash each piece every time you use it.

I’ve been searching for quite awhile for a blender that can serve my neverending and occasionally complicated kitchen demands. This cuisinart smartpower blender fits the bill. It’s a gorgeous shiny red color, has a strong motor, and most importantly – it’s glass, which means that my dish washer can’t destroy it. I’ve been using it daily to make my breakfast smoothies – it easily powers through frozen fruit and ice cubes, and gives me a great blend with powders and solids as well (my breakfast smoothies usually consist of a fresh mango, some frozen fruit, a very generous handful of spinach, and vegan protein powder. The balance is water, and it makes me 2 20oz servings). I’ve also used it as a food processor since my black and decker met the fate of the overly hot dishwasher (top rack, even). I can mix a mean vegan tzatziki in a matter of seconds – to get larger chunks, all you have to do is put it on ‘pulse’ mode. For a smooth blend, i’ll mix my liquids first, then throw in my dill and mint and pulse it a few times and call it good. It also makes great tapenades via the pulse method. Salsa ends up with a very ‘restaurant’ blended quality, however.

Cuisinart SPB-600MR SmartPower Deluxe Die Cast Blender, Metallic Red : Very happy with this; thanks for thorough reviews. I wanted a firm fit of the base of the jar into the stand; and a glass pitcher. It works great, and is easy to deal with and sets firm in stand and on counter. I made ricotta pancakes and added blueberries; the rage in la restaurants and they were delicious. Just remember these pancakes don’t bubble when done, test by putting spatula under pancakes for doneness and cook on low. They get more perfectly cooked the more you make as always. Just buy it; there’s nothing better in this price range. The red color is a cheerful tone.

Sometimes it’s better to spend a little extra and buy a quality made product the first time round. Unfortunately, i often learn the hard way that you get what you pay for. Previous blenders have all failed due to the motor being unable to handle the load. I’ve also gone through blenders where the glass has broken. This one seems indestructible. It’s extremely well made and with its powerful motor, i’ve yet to come across anything that it can’t handle. I use it for making sauces, juices, chopping ice, you name it. After having put it through its paces for over a year, it still performs as well as the day i purchased it. This is definitely a 5 star product.

My boyfriend and i purchased this blender at the end of february because we have really gotten to be ‘foodies’ and our current blender was not doing it for us. We did much research and this was the best value for the amount of money we could spend. We payed about $70 for it so the price has risen a bit. It arrived very fast and it is a very nice looking blender. We have found that it does give off an ‘electric smell’ while you are blending things; doesn’t make what you’re blending smell but still something to consider. When you have the blender on, and you’ve already finished blending everything, it vibrates louder than it does when you’re blending things. It is also a pretty loud blender. But, it does what we need it to do. We like to make frozen smoothies so anything from frozen strawberries, blueberries, bananas, etc works well. So this is a blender that would take ice very well and any kind of frozen fruit.

Excellent quality construction, simple and sleek design, solid metal parts rather than plastic. Graduated volume markings are easy to read, which is important to me. Controls are simple and easy to read. More speeds than this are not really necessary.

I wanted to set the review record straight on this blender, to the degree that i can. I bought it for one reason: to make smoothies. A mixed fruit and almond milk smoothie is lunch almost everyday. This blender’s job is to convert the mixture into a smooth shake, no lumps, and do it fast. In short, it does exactly that. This blender replaces another cuisinart, a blender/food processor i had. That also worked pretty well, but not as well as this one. For one thing, the older device didn’t always puree the banana. This blender turns a banana into mush in a hurry.

I purchased this product to replace my hamilton beach wave station blender. I was looking for something more heavy duty that functioned better. So far, the cuisinart spb-600 has met all of my expectations. The blender comes wtih 4 settings (high, low, ice crush, and pulse). It is easy to operate and clean. I love that the blender jar is thick glass and not plastic. There is a subtle pour grove on the glass jar that makes pouring easier. This grove is securly covered when the lid is fastened. It is a bit on the noisy side, but nothing that would require ear protection. I primarily use it for smoothies 5-7 days/week.

We have had this blender for several months and use it 5 days a week to make smoothies. Blends through ice no problem. The blender carafe thing is shorter and fatter than our previous one, so it takes up a bit more room in the dishwasher but that isn’t a huge deal. Keep in mind this looks more like silver than stainless to me. It sits out on our counter and looks nice– i hate things sitting out, but we use it so much that it doesn’t make sense to put it away and it doesn’t bother me to have this out. As far as usability and durability, this blender is great.

I received this blender only last week so i can not speak to the longevity of the product, but so far i love it. It is well made, easy to dis-assemble for cleaning, and blends my protein drinks perfectly. I use lots of frozen items in my drinks, and this blender has no problem handling the cold. I have been through many blenders in the past because i use them every day. This one doesn’t even break a sweat when i load it up. Not to mention, it is pretty. :update: april 5, 2013the red coating around the piece that you screw onto the bottom of the blender has been coming off for months now. It is not so pretty anymore. I do not put this piece in the dishwasher, but instead wash it with a soft sponge, so i can find nothing to blame it on but poor quality coating. In addition, the blender tends to unscrew itself when it is in the middle of blending.

Thoroughly and quickly blends. Blends well even when filled to the brim. My favorite part is the plastic gear that connects the blade to the base. It is so easy to fit the blender onto the base. Was very unhappy with a couple other models recommended by consumer reports, with a metal gear on the bottom that was hard to fit on, and sometime ground loudly.

Maybe could use a pouring spout that don’t drip.

I use this blender daily for drinks,and to puree soups. I toss in everything from leafy greens, dense fruits, vegetables, nuts, and ice. This blender has the power to pull it all down and pulverize it into perfect smoothness in a matter of moments. I researched many blenders, even purchasing and returning three (black & decker, oster, and kitchen aid) that did not meet my needs, before finding this one. It also has a thick, heavy duty glass jar, which was important to me. Bpa free or not, no plastics for my food.

I use a blender for making dips and salad dressings. Most of my base ingredients are cheeses which can and have burned up several blender motors. This unit is very powerful and there has not been a hint of a hot motor on any of my creations as yet. With it’s simple controls it is preventing me from destroying it. Who needs ten plus power selections like on most blenders. We all have smelled burning motor coils on products like this one. I have finally met my match and look forward to many more creative dip and dressing moments.

When our classic cuisinart cb-9 blender finally bit the dust after twelve years of heavy use (the touch-pads wore out) we looked around and settled on this blender as a replacement and it is a worthy successor. What i like about it:-strong jar. It’s heavy and scratch proof. This jar goes into the dishwasher with no problem. They can handle anything from mixing light drinks to grinding nuts. -simple to operate with only three speeds. Believe or not, those are all you will need. I’ve had blenders with 12+ speed buttons and they were ridiculous.

I bought this on a whim because it seemed like a better alternative to my nutribullet. I have a green drink every day and it (among other things – see my review of forbidden rice) has gotten me off high blood pressure pills for 2-years now and with a solid, very normal b/p of 70/120. The cuisinart was so much better than the nutribullet, i gave the nb to a good friend. You can make about 4-5 times the juice volume and cuisinart doesn’t put their brand on junk. This blender is built to last and easy to clean. I start with the ‘low’ button, then progress to the ‘ice crusher’ button.

My old (15-20+ year old) oster finally gave up after many years of faithful service. I have other cuisinart products in the kitchen and love the red color. This blender blasts through ice and frozen fruit for my morning protein shakes. It works great with no problems. Yes, there was a new appliance smell at first, but that is long gone and was never a problem for me. Very pleased with this purchase.

I bought one of these 3 years ago. I make a smoothie every morning and include ice cubes, so the blades and motor get a workout. After about 2 3/4 years the ice wasn’t getting chopped up as much so i thought about ordering a new one. Instead i ordered new blades from amazon for about $14. This is a really solid, heavy duty blender.

I’ll give this product a three star rating. It is fine for thin smoothies, but not powerful enough for me. I wanted it to make soft serve by crushing frozen sliced bananas, with almond milk added, but it takes a long time to do this. I thought it would do it easily since it is supposed to be able to crush ice. I’m sure it will work fine for making thin smoothies. Yet, i was disappointed in its lack of power and will probably purchase one that is more powerful.

Cuisinart HB-154PC Smart Stick Hand Blender With Whisk & Chopper Attachments – Club Model, I like this Hand Blender.

Great gift for kitchen dwellers.

This is a wonderful had blender, the reason i am giving it a 4 star is the chopper is confusing. I have to chop with knife first cause the container is small and then when i use with the hand blender it chops way to fine. I may be using that part of it wrong, but other than that, it is a wonderful blender and that is why i got this.

So far, this model is much better than the original smart stick blender, which failed within 6 months on three separate tries, using amazon policies: twice for blade metal fatigue (blades were too thin, unfit for the purpose), once for drive sprocket failure, also a materials engineering fail. This model has thicker blades, a more substantial drive. Plus, in the event of another blade failure, the accessory chopper can substitute for the blade until the unit can be replaced. This is a selling point that was decisive in deciding to take the chance to go with another cuisinart rather than the kitchenaid. Now that i’ve had a chance to inspect & use the new model with its improved design and materials, this may work out.

Comments from buyers

“Much better engineering than the original Smart Stick blender; 5 stars now later, DK., Great little set!, I like this Hand Blender.”

I bought this for a gift and got a chance to put the attachments on and run the motor. If it had a storage case it would be so great. The motor sounded strong ,the attachements fit together easily,construction looked good.

My daughter loves the convenience of this product – easy to use and easy to store.

I’ve been wanting a stick blender for sometime and held off until i could do enough research to make my purchase worthwhile. I’ve been pleased with its ability to blend soups, sauces and chop. I don’t really use the ‘high’ setting and i’m careful to not run it too long, lest the motor go ka-blooey. I haven’t used the whisk attachment yet. But the chopping chamber works well. I wish the tumbler was metal instead of plastic, because the size of it fits perfectly but it’s already showing signs of use. I’d definitely recommend this to someone who was interested (especially if you can lock in a decent price).

I haven’t used my regular blender since i bought thisupdate: after 5 1/2 years of frequent use this works as well as it did on day 1.

This is one of my favorite appliances. Really like the stick blender for soups, gravy, even smoothies – i make frozen smoothies with ice, milk, cocoa and spends – mix with the stick blender and i’m a delighted camper.

The whip attachment is ineffective but the blender performs fine and i’ve experienced this for more than 1 calendar year.

I like this so considerably i will be buying a single for my daughter as a home warming present quickly. The attachments are what built me choose this modle the mini chopper is terrific. The blender is uncomplicated to use and easy to thoroughly clean.

As a hand blender it works incredibly properly, the chopper attachment operates only so so, dependent on what you are chopping. As i procured it for use as a hand blender i am very delighted with it. The blender attachment is primarily ss (stainless steel) at the lessen conclusion, and which is the place the rubber meets the street so to say. I can stand the entire blender upright on the sideboard when not is use, which is what i wanted so it really is promptly obtainable to me. The ss blender attachment pops off very effortlessly for cleansing / rinsing below the tap.

I like the mixed blender and foods procedure selections devoid of the bulky storage or two entire-size appliances. It blends smoothies and soups tremendous smooth and very rapidly. I was equipped to get rid of my massive blender and not have to obtain a food processor.

It is fantastic for whipping up dwelling built whip product in a flash. It is also wonderful to have the compact food items processor attachment. A minimal outside of the year point it appeared the motor went up and would no extended function. I contacted cuisinart right and they were being fabulous. I provided them with my model selection and needed details and they sent a new a single to me really immediately, no queries requested. What a excellent client experience. I feel we all know that just isn’t effortless to uncover.

The ‘food processor’ is the best dimensions for smaller batches of onions, garlic, herbs, or for when i make my individual ’emeril’ spice mix. The hand blender is best for soups and salad dressings in the included cup, and i use the whisk every single weekend for eggs.

Utilizing this for blending sizzling soups without having possessing to transfer it to a blender, preserving the dirtying of a second utensil. Also prevents blow ups that occasionally happen when mixing warm liquids in a typical blender when one is not so.

So, i had to begin ingesting balanced and wanted a food processor to make healthier yet delicious points like spinach pesto. I was likely to go the food stuff processor only route, but my sister described that i should really get some thing a lot more like this when we ended up at target. I went to amazon, observed this- and just ordered it. I was a small nervous that meals processor cup would be much too little- and that the pieces would be really hard to interchange. Well, i am handful of months in and i love this solution. I have had no troubles with it so far. I have no prior working experience with using a food processor, and i am likely not the most gentle with it, but it is keeping up just good. And possessing the whisk solution and the option to mix matters in the larger sized mixer cup are very great. I are living on your own, so i didn’t want anything much too massive and did not want everything that would call for me to take in much too a lot foodstuff (i am also performing on part command).

My minor brother asked for this and by accident i gave it to my older brother to open up. Each had been very happy to open it and my little brother stated he cannot wait around to use it. I purchased this for my sister very last calendar year and she enjoys it.

I purchased this 1 applied and the blade was caught but the foods processor is effective.

This product is magnificent i am so excited to have located it, and have applied all of the attachments, i won’t be able to say plenty of beneficial things about it, have not experienced any challenges with any portion of it and use it at minimum three-four periods a 7 days, i also have a cuisinart mixer and coffee pot, it truly is an amazing model in my viewpoint.

I never require to cleanse the blender cup any more. This hand blender will work extremely perfectly with thicker texture which the blender can not cope with. The chopper is in good measurement. I have a five cup capability food stuff processor which is superior with significant sum. For chop 50 percent-onion, some garlic, this chopper is more realistic.

I stilll use it each individual working day to make fruit smoothies and it performs properly.

Now one yr afterwards (2014), the motor froze. . Out of guarantee so now i am not so guaranteed that this is a terrific item even tho the manufacturer has usually been trustworthy. Ideal for shakes and smoothies. Rapid, productive and so uncomplicated to clear. Encouraged to buddies and they had been not let down as well. Obtained rid of the aged blender that i experienced. Normally takes up very small room as very well furthermore the chopper is a reward.

Furthermore: the three attachments are straightforward to deal with and work incredibly very well. Minus: the shape of the beeker that comes with the set is larger on the top, does not make a big difference if you are chopping, but you should not consider to whip a thing in it – splatters all aroundthere are two motor speeds, both equally not super-speedy, but this is completely ample for the established.

For many cases, this is a great deal less difficult to use than a food processor. We have constrained counter room so the foodstuff processor is in a cabinet so the stick blender is much a lot more practical.

Cuisinart TOB-260n-1 Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven – Very happy with this toaster oven.

Will make good toast and is a excellent next oven or key oven for a small relatives. Have correctly baked pizza, cookies, pork loin, crustless quiche. Crumb tray pulls out from the outside the house bottom entrance which is a good ease. Display panel is straightforward to go through. I may well in no way use my big oven all over again.

My kitchen stove oven died and caught me at a bad economic time so with holiday seasons coming, i required to get some thing rapidly, this minimal cuisinart was the solution – definitely large time. Substantial enough to deal with baking chores and tiny sufficient to make toast in the morning. These little ovens are so efficient that you will come across yourself carrying out the minor baking and broiling chores that you may possibly not want to heat up the kitchen stove to do. Considering the fact that acquiring this very little gem, i’ve not truly thought about paying out numerous grand on a new stove, but in its place have set the kitchen stove in a ‘would-be-nice-to-have-but-can-do-devoid of-suitable-now’ classification.

I will not have an oven in my apartment, so i required a countertop oven that bakes very well. I experimented with the breville sensible oven as well as (identical to the wise oven bov800xl and the identical selling price, but with an additional ‘slow cook’ mode — it can be a william’s sonoma distinctive item). The breville baked excellently, but the convection enthusiast stopped performing the next time i used it. Prior to ordering another breville, i needed to see what else was out there. I shopped all around and located the cuisinart tob-260. I consider other folks will be seeking at this oven as an choice to the breville wise oven, so here are my feelings on how the two ovens review:one. The breville cooks a tiny more evenly than the cuisinart. I baked banana bread in equally ovens and the cuisinart loaf came out somewhat darker all around the edges than in the center, when the breville loaf was correctly even in coloration (even much better results than most genuine ovens i’ve made use of). The cuisinart’s cooking chamber is further, so the major two heating elements utilized through baking are more unfold out than the breville’s. I assume which is why there was a tiny significantly less browning in the center with the cuisinart.Here are the specifications for the Cuisinart TOB-260n-1 Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.

Soon after only a pair of weeks it appears to be to be an fantastic alternative to a next oven. I procured it because of some of the adverse assessments on the breville, and also since of the more time guarantee and expertise with other cuisinart solutions. It seems a bit sluggish to heat up. The pre-warmth stage looks quite very long to me.

We bought the cuisinart for our studio cabin that has no oven. So considerably i have roasted a full hen. Manufactured baked potatoes and roasted veggies. Anything turned out just like it was cooked in a standard oven. It’s quick to use, arrives to temperature properly. I will soon try out building scones and muffins etcetera. The lighted interior is a excellent choice. Search ahead to utilizing the pizza stone because i make pizza from scratch. Incredibly happy with the product or service.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Breville Smart Oven or Cuisinart TOB-260 Chef’s Convection Oven? Why I chose Cuisinart.
  • Good Substitute for a Traditional Oven
  • Not sure if it is worth $200+

Just acquired it and been employing it for just about a week. Incredibly pleased with this purchase. The oven is nicely made, modern, trendy with nice capabilities. The handbook is superior an dexplains everything however offcourse you would have ot use it to get made use of to it. I have tried out broil, bake, roast features. Greens ended up roasted fantastic. The dual feature is quite useful and i could broil rooster and then enable the oven swap to bake method. This twin functionality allows a consumer use 2 features one right after the other with out getting to improve temperature and time themself.

I have acquired breville’s sensible oven, wolfgang puck’s steam oven and gave both of those absent. This cuisinart oven considerably surpasses both of those of them. Good big capacity with two cooking racks and quite a few lots of attributes. Inside mild is a good additional perk.

Bought mine right now which i requested two days in the past and inboxed it. It was packed in two separate bins and no damage. I set it on my counter subsequent to the microwave, plugged it it, established th e time, baked at 350 for thirty min and checked the outer temp. Really scorching on top and remaining aspect, not so a great deal on the appropriate aspect. Now studying the reserve and all the comments here. I expect to like and appreciate it and love the light and quietness of the fan.

This toaster oven is more substantial than what i definitely wished, but it turns out that i genuinely like the measurement and versatility. Because there are just two of us this will take the position of each my toaster and getting to use my oven for the modest quantities we ordinarily will need to bake or broil. I genuinely like the pull out crumb drawer, it’s tremendous quick to clean and retains a mess from accumulating in the base of the oven. Great assortment of settings and after one or 2 works by using it can be straightforward to program specific options. It does choose up a very good chunk of counter place so i wouldn’t recommend it to anyone with really tiny house.

Each time that i cook dinner in this counter convection oven by cuisinart i tumble further and deeper in appreciate with it. Initial issue is i established it on 275f with almost nothing inside to see if the coated interior would give off any fumes: no fumesthe interior is really an quick cleanup. I used the heavy gauge pans that come with it to broil (500f) a handmade thick hamburger. The pans did not warp and ended up uncomplicated to clean up off. They resemble porcelain coated pans. I also wrapped in foil a frozen italian hamburger roll and established it exterior on leading of the oven and rotated it. Finally a small oven that actually cleans up effortlessly when splattering grease on to the surface area. The coating is not the black conveniently chips absent coating that other oven have and never clear up unless you steam it off. The smaller but relatively larger counter top rated cuisinart oven preheats speedily (due to its dimension) but this oven has a convection pace which removes preheating and is excellent for frozen food items. The handbook is a should go through for suggestions that can really assist in cooking thoroughly. When utilizing the convection= reduce time.

I acquired this just one to switch a person we experienced been employing for 5 yrs (appliances never ever last anymore). So, time will notify how this puppy retains up in excess of time, and use. Having said that, i do like this toaster oven. This is by much my most loved of all the toaster ovens i’ve procured in excess of the last 20 years. I really don’t have a solitary destructive matter about it (many others may well, but not this home). Simple to use, straightforward to see, gorgeous to look at, and large enough to cook a 12′ – 13′ pizza on a pizza stone. I bake bread in it, i bake cookies in it, toast bread (of class), reheat leftovers (our microwave has been broken because previous thanksgiving), keep food items warm in it, heat plates for meals in it, bake casseroles, and so significantly extra. It thoroughly beats heating up the major oven to cook dinner just just one dish, and is pretty useful when you have obtained a number of dishes going and will need the extra oven, or warming spot.

I had been looking for a toaster oven that does extra than just make toast. Just after carrying out comprehensive research i choose the cuisinart and am quite pleased with the oven. I specifically like the simple fact that i can use a 9′ x 13′ pan or a 13′ pizza pan-which was incorporated. It bakes, roasts, broils and of study course, makes toast. I’ve but to try the convection setting but know it will get a great deal of use during the holiday time.

I like this toaster oven a good deal. I want i could give it 5 stars but my unit is out of temperature calibration. Also i believe the exterior surfaces get hotter than an power economical unit should really. It really should have experienced additional insulation in destinations. My most really serious problem is that it is regularly about 18 degrees as well sizzling. I have a digital oven thermometer that i use to take a look at conventional ovens. Applying it i found that when set to 350 degrees it settles in at 370 +- two degrees. Established to 325 it goes to 342 levels, 375 levels gets me 394 levels. Knowing this i can compensate but i want there was a way to transform the interior established issue.

I am certainly loving my cuisinart convection toaster oven. I appeared at a large amount of ovens and read through a ton of testimonials, but at some point went with the cuisinart thanks to the bundled 2nd oven rack and pizza stone. So considerably almost everything i have baked/toasted/reheated in this oven has turned out perfectly. Having just the suitable toasting motion is a problem that i am nevertheless striving to defeat (at times the bread is way too mild and the toasting is a bit uneven), but it is good ample for delightful garlic toast and english muffins. The convection manner works wonderful with casseroles. The oven will get extremely warm (hot) though cooking, so i have it tucked into a corner of my kitchen counter so when i pull it out to use it there is a great deal of place close to the sides and again. I keep the 2nd rack on prime (it suits nicely beneath, too) with the pizza stone on major of that to give me a area to relaxation matters when cooking. I have not tried using warming plates on leading, but it should work good. It is much larger than i expected, but suits the corner exactly where i have it perfectly. All in all, i am so glad i built this invest in and haven’t employed my principal oven given that i bought this cuisinart.

We have always had a cuisinart or waring toaster oven, but by far this is the ideal at any time. It remembers your cooking preferences and by far has the most significant potential of a counter prime toaster/convection oven. It toasts completely and does not dry out the bread or muffin. I can see why it was the only oven with 5 stars and no negatives. Also, you are not able to defeat a 3 12 months warranty, on 1 else provides that.

I gained this merchandise (a alternative) yesterday and was quite fascinating about it. I tested instantly mainly because the last a person that was shipped to me was a damaged product or service. Below is my opinionsthe very good:1 it has a lot of functions with preset parameters. This will help if you don’t remember the temperature and time for certain type of cooking. The quick start guide is definitely helpful for the people who don’t have a lot of patient or already have some idea on how to operate an oven. The quick guide also gives you a good and short summary on ‘getting to know your control panel’. 3] it looks good and i like the width and overall size. The capacity (this is not the outside dimensions which are larger) of this oven, measured by me, is 14. 0″-height (the height is measured from the lowest rack setting to the top ceiling). A 13-inch round pizza stone will easily fit in the oven. June 16, 2015 – after using it for a month or so. I’d like to add;5] the unit that i bought has very even heat distribution (although i found a few reviews on the internet that some people experienced some uneven baking). 6] it can reach 500 degrees when set to broil. I used this feature to preheat the pizza stone (by placing the rack to around the center and set it to bake at the highest temperature for about 60 minutes and then set to broil for 15 minutes) and baked pizza with it. I didn’t think that the oven could reach that kind of heat but the dough came out ok. Not the best but not that bad (some brown patterns at the bottom). ]

This toaster broiler oven is terrific. We looked at quite a few unique models and brand names. Last but not least determined to get this just one. I really like the point that it has a light-weight. It is actually better than i believed it would be. It even has a leftover cycle, a preserve warm cycle, can do normal baking or convection. I truthfully can not believe of everything adverse about this toaster oven broiler. Even nevertheless it has a large ability, it isn’t going to get up considerably far more rrom on the counter major than my outdated toaster oven did.

Up till this past week, i experienced a breville wise oven, and loved it. Right up until it died, and would no more time warmth. Reading on-line, i identified it wasn’t really worth the cost to repair (about $150. 00) and so commenced researching for a alternative. I was satisfied with the breville, and had it for two yrs. Right after examining, i determined to try out the cuisinart. three yr warranty, as opposed to the 1 year warranty with breville2). The oven has a light-weight feature. So pleasant now that i have it, to essentially genuinely see how matters are cooking3).

Quite good hunting on counter and usually takes considerably less room than expected. I do not uncover it throws adequate heat to be involved what is in the cabinets higher than and even though the leading does warmth up, it really is not as warm as an electric powered dryer prime. I’m even now finding employed to the options to use for distinct foodstuff but they are straightforward to pick out from.

Only a few minimal concerns and hints. Electronic beeper is very weak (even turned up to 2nd level) so if you might be out of the kitchen area, it can be greater to have a pocket timer with you. Rotary selector knob is quite sloppy when deciding upon options. It operates fine, but it could use improved detents. Auto shutoff usually takes a minor acquiring applied to. I have an more mature cuisinart convection toaster oven (smaller sized). It did not have the auto shutoff characteristic and the beeper was significantly louder. Even though this oven does have area for a thirteen x 9 pan, it does not have area for a 13 x 9 with handles (like a corning or pyrex dish).

Ideal 1 we have at any time gotten, have purchased so lots of and they all conclude up toasting at a snails pace, this just one you can established it for how lots of pieces you are cooking and what amount of toasting quantity you want. It is also a terrific convection cooker and that function is effective very well also. Well worth the price tag we are really satisfied with it.
