Benchmark 40004 Popcorn Portion Pack – Grab some garlic powder and start popping.

Tasted great not too salty or buttery.

I bought this to accompany my nordic ware microwave popcorn popper purchase. The popcorn performs properly. I didn’t use the oil package. I added a couple of teaspoons of my own oil and some garlic powder (of course). Came out perfect on the first try in about 2 1/2 minutes (1100w).

Not bad, but not great either. Some of the pre-packaged bags of popcorn did not pop up as well and some tasted stale. I did get a few packs that tasted fresh, but it was a hit and miss. Here are the specifications for the Benchmark 40004 Popcorn Portion Pack:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Pre-measured popcorn, coconut oil and seasoning salt
  • Perfect popcorn every time
  • No measuring, no mess
  • 24 Packets per case
  • For 4 oz. poppers
  • Coconut oil is solid under 75 degrees Fahrenheit

We have a small 4oz kettle popcorn maker and this package works great for making a tasty treat. Some pouches could be a tad salty, but they still taste great.

Not only convenient but the best tasting. Not overly buttery but just the right amount. The pre-packaged amounts are perfect also. Definitely my go to popcorn for movie nights.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Just didn’t bring that theater popcorn taste we all love. Using a commercial style popcorn machine
  • Tasty
  • Great popcorn, Great price.

I like this just as well as the name brand popcorn packets.

My wife thinks i’m the coolest ever for getting these. You can’t go wrong with this brand, and the portion control is perfect with our great northern 6oz. Hardly any unpopped kernels. Just follow the instructions, especially waiting until you get a little steam from the kettle after the oil gets hot before you put the kernels in. We’ve re-purchased these many times.

Bought these for our new popcorn popper. Very easy to use and taste great. I’ll definitely repurchase these.

I’ve tried all the various pre-packaged popcorn packs like these. These are by far, the very best. The butter flavored salt is already mixed in with kernels which is why you don’t see a separate packet like on the other brands. Both openings are nice and wide making it easy to put into your kettle if you’re using a popcorn machine. As far as the popcorn itself, i was amazed at how much more kernels popped than the other brands amazon sells, particularly, the great northern brand. I didn’t change a thing as to how i popped either, just my normal routine of letting the kettle heat a couple of minutes, adding the oil and letting it melt, and then adding the kernels. The popcorn just kept popping and popping to my amazement. Before, when i was using the great northern brand, i noticed that probably a good 1/3 of the kernels did not pop and i had to empty the catch tray after each packet. Oh, and most importantly, the popcorn pops nice big kernels and has a delicious flavor on par or better than the other brands (wabash farms, g.

I had been buying various premium popcorn, coconut oil with beta carotene for coloring, and flavacol on amazon and making my own popcorn portion packs. I thought i’d try the benchmark 40004 popcorn portion pack for 4 ounce popper as a convenience item. The popcorn popped with few unpopped kernels, but the kernels were smaller, and the popcorn was less flavorful than the gourmet popcorn to which i had become accustomed. Despite having less flavor, the popcorn was a bit saltier than i like. It seemed that the predominant flavor was ‘salty’. This seemed like so-so microwave popcorn, after i had grown accustomed to movie popcorn at home. I’ll eat it, but i won’t serve this popcorn to my friends or family, and i’ll continue to buy the ingredients and package my own so there is a minimum amount of fuss and bother on movie night. I put half a cup of popcorn in zip lock bags, and i put half a teaspoon of flavacol in a 2 ounce portion cup (the little plastic cups used for salad dressing at salad bars) and almost fill the rest of the cup with coconut oil. I keep the coconut oil in the fridge or freezer to keep it solid in the summer, so it pops out of the plastic cup without leaving any residue. It’s not much trouble to package my own single use packs, and its worth the effort to use good ingredients and package the popcorn in individual portion sizes for my great northern hand crank popper.

These are the perfect size for a quick snack.

As been using it for a long time. Swears by it as being the best he has found. Did i mention he loves popcorn.

This is the popcorn we use for our machine. Easy to use and tastes great.

Coming from a guy who loves salt, this has too much per portion. Pop weaver, though more expensive, is the best flavor.

I have a mini popcorn popper that works like the big ones and i use this in it. It makes a bowl big enough for one person. Tastes just like movie theater popcorn and family loves it too.

The popcorn we usually buy was out of stock so i thought we would give this one a shot. Not sure what it is but it always tastes just a little bit stale when compared to the popcorn we usually buy. The flavor just isn’t as good.

I have been buying packs for quite awhile now and have had real trouble finding popcorn that is anything like theater popcorn without butter. This one is perfect and just like the theater popcorn.

Works well for our popcorn maker and nice flavor – not too salty or greasy.

Makes great tasting popcorn. Love the convenience of the all in one packets. It has the perfect blend of popcorn, seasoning salt and seasoned coconut oil to make great tasting pop corn every time. Just open pour in packets and enjoy great tasting movie theater pop corn at home. You will notice several un-popped kernels, this is due to the popping kettle as the popped kernels force some un-popped kernels out of kettle when pooping gets violent. I recommend this to anyone who has a kettle popper.

When i ran out of my last box -which was unmarked for some reason, i wasn’t sure this was the same brand, but it was. Tastes just like the popcorn at the movies.

Work great for my whirlypop. Makes the exact right amount.

Amazon Renewed Cuisinart PRC-12 Classic 12-Cup Stainless-Steel Percolator, This percolator coffee pot really makes a good pot of coffee

We bought it to use in our camper, but have used it at home. I would recommend this to anyone.

A little faster brew it should have been old school slow for rich flavor.

This percolator seems to make richer better tasting coffee than the other brands. I don’t know why, it just does. At the same time, i have not spent any more money than i would have for the other brands. Reconditioned is the only way to go.

Comments from buyers

“Our Cuisinart perculator arrived on time and in good condition. It makes tasty
, Quality!
, Four Stars

Very thin metal, cheaply constructed, but ok, no temp control, just on and off.

Oh sweet memories of these kind of coffee makers of my younger years. I just love this coffee maker. The coffee is even hotter than other coffee makers i have on the counter (i have three choices of types of coffee makers) but i love watching this perk. This coffee maker arrived like it was brand new, looks new in every way, even the box. I did order the filters for these kind of coffee makers. I forgot the bottom can have some breakdown of grounds, but that’s ok, it is memories too of sharing coffee with my mother years ago. I know i can’t find anything wrong to say, but when there is anything that brings back long lost memories i am all for it. That jingle of the coffee perking in the glass top also goes through my head while it is perking. I made a good choice in every way with this.

It does spill over the grounds but well worth that there are no plastic parts (except for the top part).

Love that it came with the fill line marks for both the water line and coffee line.

I would highly recommend this product.

It makes great coffee and it’s very well made. Some of design factors i really appreciateare the ergonomic handle, the wide base for stability, and the clear dome nob that letsyou see the coffee perking.

After years of drinking drip coffee i decided to switch to percolated coffee. Our cuisinart perculator arrived on time and in good condition. It makes tasty, hot coffee in a reasonably short time. My wife and i highly recommend this product.

Opened it, washed it and gave it a spin: at first it smelled like the coffee was burnt but did not taste burnt, actually it was pretty damn good. Good item awesome shipping no problems.

This percolator coffee pot really makes a good pot of coffee, the way coffee should taste. We have had ours going on 3 years.

I had a farberware percolator which i liked, but the knob broke off the top. So i thought i would try the cuisinart percolator, and love it.

Alessi Aldo Rossi 2-qt – Best Ever Quality teapot

This is great–after the interior is cleaned, anyway. It took a bit of paper towel, rubbing alcohol, and elbow grease to remove gunk from manufacturing, particularly from where the walls meet the base and from the folded rim of the lid. It’s nice there’s no lead in this, but i don’t want to drink unnecessary quantities of nickel or chromium either. Really is great once cleaned up, though. Water heats quickly and stays hot for a long time.

Having this on my stove is like living with an item from the museum of modern art – it is in their collection. It is a joy to look at and it’s wonderful to use. It is definitely a quality item unlike any tea kettle that i have ever seen – it is heavy steel, the finish is terrific and although it costs an arm and a leg, it is not just for boiling water (but it does that quickly and efficiently). I am fortunate to be able to own it. It was a requested birthday gift that my family all chipped in to give me.

Another beautiful aldo rossi designed alessi piece. Form and function together in an elegantly shaped kettle to display and use. Here are the specifications for the Alessi Aldo Rossi 2-qt:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Kettle in 18/10 stainless steel, mirror polished
  • Capacity: 2.0 litres or 2.11 quarts.
  • With a magnetic heat diffusing bottom for induction cooking.
  • Overall Dimensions: 8.66″ H x 8.66″ W x 8.66″ D.

One of the most visually pleasing tea kettles i have ever laid my eyes on. Heats my coffee water so fast it’s ridiculous. Washes easily, looks amazing, and totally worth the price. It’s an upfront investment, but i’m sure this will last me years.

I have it on my stovetop permanently – looks great.

  • The Most Beautiful Tea Kettle EVER

I’ve had mine for over 25 years. It’s absolutely gorgeous, of course–but it heats up water incredibly fast. I have an electric range (glass top), and have never noticed the handle getting hot–but i gave one of these to my sister who has a gas range, and did burn myself a little on hers. I think the fact that the element on mine is slightly smaller than the diameter of the kettle is the difference.

I would wish the handle were somewhat insulated from the heat. But i do anything for style.

Classic design, though not as good as the ‘harmonica’ kettle from alessi that has a thick copper base so heats water fast. This is lovely when brand new, but scratches over time with cleaning. I decided today just to throw mine away because of this. The effect is gone once the surface is marred.

This is a beautiful designer tea kettle that heats water very quickly. I don’t have a problem with the handle getting hot; perhaps because the burner is not larger than the base of the kettle.

First, the obvious: the kettle is completely beautiful – design perfection. That stated – plus: its very wide base facilitates quick heating. It’s incredibly easy to keep clean. Minus: the handle can become dangerously hot.

Thank you aldo rossi and of course alessi for design and function.

Handle does get a bit too warm though.

I like that it is made from a substantial metal. Have not had it long, but it appears to be quite efficient.

All that i hoped for and more–it’s art and its very functional.

This is my second one since my husband burned up the first. I know it is a little pricey but well worth.

I bought mine 20 years ago, had to retire it after changing to an induction hob. It didn’t work, the bottom also does’t hold a magnet, which is a reliable test. These days i read many conflicting descriptions about it being suitable for induction. Many webshops still indicate it is not suitable for induction, and some claim it is, very confusing, maybe older and upgraded kettles are sold, who knows ?i would instantly buy another one if i could be shure it works fine with induction. These days they are only offered on line, so it’s not possible to test them with a magnet, ordering and returning is such a hassle. I still love the design, and kept mine just for it’s (useless)beauty.

Wow, was i shocked to find this kettle here while looking for a stainless water jug. I have had mine for about 8 years and it’s still looking and working great. What’s shocking is i bought it for about 7 bucks at value village and i only bought it because it was shiny and funky looking. The surface still looks great, a few very fine, well, can’t even call them scratches because unless you pick it up and look close they don’t show. I think it is the wide bottom design that makes it heat fast, sure is a great piece of art and functionality, i just had no idea it was such a pricey item when i bought it that day. I even had to leave my computer and check the name on the bottom of mine, yup, same company. Would i pay that price for it?. Maybe, maybe not at that time but i could now that i have loved mine for so long already if it ever got destroyed or taken. And no, my handle doesn’t get hot either, it must not be sitting so the heat can rise up to it. My burner is completely under the base so no heat gets up to the handle.

It seems crazy spending $150 to heat water, but it really is beautiful sitting on the stove. That said, we’ve had other quality tea kettles and they tarnished and stained. I was this with water or dish soap once and while and dry it. The finish looks like new after 2 months of daily use. — we do remove it from the stove when we cook to avoid splatters. As for function, you should know a few things. It does not whistle, which i kind of like. If you let it boil, it will be very hot water due to the way the lid and spout increase pressure (i teach physics – higher pressure makes water boil at higher temp), so we turn it off when we start to see steam.

We are using it for the last month and it is perfect in every sense.

I am a serious alessi fan, and have had this teapot for over a decade. Don’t know a great deal about physics, but i’ve never experienced water boiling so fast. If you’re trying to ‘go green’, this teapot will even save electricity/power. It’s really quite intriquing. I assume it to have something to do with the conical shape – you will never be disappointed. The design is also brilliant because the handle never gets prohibitively hot. The finish is so bright and shiny, i’d warn everyone in the household that they cannot use a scrubbie on the finish, or they will scratch it. Brilliant functionality and brilliant design.

Looks so pretty in my new kitchen. Amazon price was 50% cheaper. I could not pass up this deal. You have to use a mitt as the handle gets very hot.

Oster CKSTSKRM16-SK 16-Inch by 12-Inch Oblong Skillet : Personal experiance with this product

The skillet works great as advertised, it is most easy to clean and it is pleasing to the eye.

I am happy with the product the only thing i dislike is the knob it gets hot when the skillet heats up it’s bearable but i’d rather it not be hot period.

The first one was damaged in shipping. Had no problems getting that resolved and they sent another in perfect condition. This is huge and great for cooking for a crowd. Love the detachable pan can also go in the oven.

Have used mine for years and no issues. Easy to clean, perfect for family gatherings. Wish there was a spoon slot, but other than that great. Oh and it really keeps things hot, one time i left the burner on when almost all the mac and cheese was gone whoops. Baking soda & vinegar later and it was good again, slight bubbling in the coating, but i really burnt it on there good, so not oster’s fault there.

  • Great product
  • I love my Oster
  • Did the job and looks good too

It evenly heats and allows me to prepate meals in no time.

Large cooking area and love the fact that it lifts off the base for washing. Also serves as a great deep dish for baking.

Practical and easy to use at all times.

The idea behind this product is sound. The fact that the pan can be used as a serving dish is great; however, to touch the small handles on the “serving dish/fry pan is to get a very fast finger burn. The handles are part of the heating surface. I think that is a design flaw. My main complaint is in the temperature controler. It appears to work properly as far as the temperature itself, however you need to be a contorsionist to read the temperature setting. The “off” is in plain view at the top of the dial. Unfortunately if i want to set the temperature i have to virtually kneel down to read the dial (which is at the bottom)i should also add that the temperature dial is flimsy (it appears fragile). I have used oster appliances in the past with no problems, but whoever designed this (or approved the designed) must have had a bad previous evening.

I can cook enough food in here to feed our family of 4 and have left overs. Clean up is so nice…do not have to any scrubbing, just a little soap and cleans off easily.

I had my pan for several years but when my granddaughter was getting married and there were showers, & wedding gifts to buy so i went happy buying all of the great appliances that i had bought for my own household over the years. Now i have to teach her how to use them easy wash-up just take the pan & put in the dishwasher and you are done quickly.

Used at thanksgiving for the first time. It looked good sitting on the serving table and performedup to promised quality.

We looked all over for something that would fit our needs. This skillet was what we wanted and meets all our expectations.

The greatest electric skillet i have ever owned. I love the removable skillet from the heating element making it easy to clean.

Clover B7A Hot and Cold Water Dispenser With Adjustable Cold Water Thermostat – Cold Water at last!

I needed a dispenser to replace my 4 year old ge unit. These big box units, which sell for a little over a hundred bucks, seem to last about 3-5 years with constant use. When i did my research of the current brands sold by the big box stores, i wasn’t thrilled with the reviews. None of them seemed to be particularly positive. So i continued to look for other alternatives, willing to pay a little more if i could find a unit that got better ratings. That’s when i found the clover dispenser. The ratings were good and i was willing to spend a little more for it. The unit itself is a standard water dispenser, with one hot and one cold spigot. Setup was easy: just clean the exterior, plug it in, and insert a bottle. (i’ve read that some other brands require more extensive cleaning, so the fast setup was nice.

The water tastes great and cold. The hot water is instant as well. It is compact and we are very happy with it.

Ok, to start off, i purchased this item to replace a ge water cooler we had for 4-5 years. I used it with a pur water filter. The ge model had an easily removable collar that allowed for the water filter for the pur. The cooler went out on the older ge. So, i purchased this model for a water cooler replacement. The collar in the new clover did not accomodate the pur water filter–the mechanism to keep water from overflowing is large than the collar. So, we had to remove the collar. It ultimately took simple elbow grease, not strategy. I finally removed the center clear water bottle piercer, followed by the collar.

Well, the product is exactly as advertised. Boiling temperature water from a child-safe spout, and refrigerated water from the other one. Fits our multitude of differently shaped water tanks, very simple, easy to use, works great. We had bought a few different water coolers from other sellers and brands, but had to return all of them because they arrived broken or didn’t work as advertised, but this one had absolutely no disappointments 🙂 pretty good deal for the money.

Water cooler seams to work fine. . Have had it about two months now. Broke both facets when putting them on. . To align the spout vertical, had to overtighten them and they cracked. Bought replacement childlock ones that worked fine. Cheap handles included, not childlock ones.

Awesome water dispenser, highly recommend getting this over one of the $100 ones.

  • Frustration for clean, filtered water
  • Good unit!
  • Cold Water at last!

Cold water is cold, hot water is hot enough to make tea straight from the spout. No problems with leaking or dripping spouts. Really happy with this purchase.

We bought this along with 4 gallon water cooler filter purifier – save $$$ – place on cooler – transform tap water to healthy mineral drinking water by zen water online. Wasn’t sure how it was going to work together with this but everything is working great. The reason i selected this cooler was that a reviewer said it did not leak and lasted. We had a leak when an old cooler finally broke and it created a mess. So we want to avoid this for a long time to come. This cooler does run very quiet as well and the water temperature is perfect – nice and cool.

Being able to set the temperatures to your desired settings is great. Arrived faster than advertised, too.

We love this cooler, smaller profile than our last one, keeps cold water cold and we like the saftey freature on the hot water. Nice not to have to remove the entire water cap.

This is the one water dispenser which covered all my requirements: cold water, quiet operation, narrow, and a spigot high enough an adult can use (i’m 5’11’). I tried to go cheap and ordered a vitapur top load (b00ffc7m72) and it was far too short for an adult. We previously used a discontinued vitapur top load which ran constantly, was very loud and kept the water semi-cold. Clover makes an awesome unit.

Good cold and hot temperatures. Faucet handles are a little wimpy but serviceable. I am using it with 3 gallon containers. Did not impart any weird tastes. But it has only been in service a few weeks. Directions call for plugging it into a gfi outlet (ground fault interrupter outlet) which you might want to know ahead of time if you need to get an outlet modified for it as i did.

The clover b7a hot and cold water dispenser performed as advertised. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a reliable ‘water cooler’.

I purchased this unit for the convenience of dispensed hot & cold water. I based my decision on researching reviews both here and on other sites. The product was purchased almost a month ago, i did not get around to installing it until recently as i was waiting for the bottle on the old cooler to empty. But people kept installing new bottles and i didn’t get the chance until a couple of days ago. The item was received undamaged and in factory packaging. What i did not like was the absence of factory manuals. No problem, i downloaded the appropriate one from the factory website. So far the product has given good service. The hot water dispensed is adequately hot and the cold water adequately cold. There is no sign of plastic tasting water, unlike other company’s coolers in investigated reviews.

I read the reviews and it looked like a good purchase. We are definitely pleased, the hot water comes out so hot i do not have to microwave my oatmeal.

This dispenser served most of it’s purpose for nearly three years before we retired it. The hot water stopped working sometime in the first year, but since we primarily used this for cold water, we didn’t notice for a while and this was ok for us. Like others have said, it’s unclear how to clean it which can be confusing.

Finally a quality water cooler. I had the newair model wdc-200w and returned it. The water runs fast from the cold tap. The water is nice and cold and refreshing. The unit is stable and quiet, silent really.

STAINLESS STEEL TANKS: Both the hot and cold water tanks are constructed of hygienic stainless steel which is specifically designed to be contaminant-resistant and protect your health

I was looking for a water cooler to replace my 15 yr old worn out cooler. This was exactly what i needed. The cold water temperature feature was the final selling point.

A sturdy machine that doesn’t feel like it will shake apart, cold water is nice and cold, haven’t tried the hot side yet(but who cares about the hot side anyways), the bottle cap system is awesome, and it doesn’t leak.

The instructions included were kind of lacking (like ‘turn on the red switch in back for hot water’) but overall, it works great.

Just waiting to see how long its going to last.

Very useful cooler at this point after recent purchase. Only question is the hot water handle. It may not hold up as a dependable handle over long period of time.

My first one had to be thrown away but it was my fault. I had it for a few years and had to get a 2nd one.

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT: Controlled by an adjustable thermostat, the cold water temperature can be set from around 35.6°F-53.6°F.

I have this for about a month. Very hot and very cold water. Easy to load water bottles because of the safety stick (punctures the water bottle so that it does not spill when turning it on top of the cooler. ) i had one from another brand, and this one is worth a little extra money. It is more professional and has just a few extra touches that make the extra money seem worthwhile. I recommend it for a small business or office setting.

Other dispensers i had in the past were noisy and didn’t last long. This one is very quiet and so far so good regarding quality.

My family love it, mine has a motor that hummed, but we have to listen for it. I read others had complained theirs are noisy but not ours. It has a hot and cold function that works.

This unit replaced one with push buttons that i could no longer use due to arthritic hands. The hot water is super hot and the cold is icy cold – just as it’s supposed to be.

Hot water tap is kid-proof; wish that had been optional. A bit hard to maneuver and the hot water comes out more slowly. Otherwise, only have had it a month, but so far so good.

Have had the clover here for about a month now and absolutely loving it. I adjusted the cold setting to the coldest level and trust me it’s the most refreshing sensation of water ever. The hot water got my ramen right so no complaints.

3 years later this machine is still working. The reason i gave it 4 stars is because you can’t take it apart to clean. We have owned, used and new machines and so far we haven’t found one that can come apart to clean. It might just be an issue on all of them. I’ve ran vinegar through it and it taste and smell like vinegar for a little while after wards.

ENERGY STAR® RATED: This water cooler has earned an Energy Star rating, which means it meets strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and U.S.

Ive had a few coolers that only get the water to the mid 40s, my tap is cooler. But if you like your water cold this is the one to get. Gets the water in the mid 30s. I don’t use the hot, you can turn it off. Skip those $100 coolers this one is worth the extra $100 for real cold water.

This replaced a unit i’d had for about 20 years that had hot, cold, and room temperature faucets. I was worried about missing the room temperature, but it’s worked out fine. The unit is attractive and fits into my decor well. The unit was easy to install and give an initial cleaning before loading up a bottle. Mounting the bottles is straightforward, but i always manage to spill a little. It’s a little lower than my previous unit, so it makes it easier. The hot water is hot enough to brew coffee in my french press, or make tea. This is a great time saver for us. The cold is plenty cold, and we just add a shot of hot if we don’t want real icy water. The drip pan is a little narrow, and you have to be careful about setting a glass on it to fill – it curves in and gets narrow just where the faucets are.

Absolutely love my water dispenser. Had it for about 3 years now. I leave it always on and never had a problem with it. The taste of the water is great and you can adjust the temperature of the cold and hot water. It is extremely quiet and energy efficient.

I just had an impulsive earge to buy a water cooler and i couldnt be happier with this one. Absolutly no bad taste at first. The water is so beautifly cold, and you sit there and chug like 4 or five tall glasses and still have some cold water in the reservior. I dont know much about other coolers, but i decided to hike out a lil extra cash for this awsome one and i recomend you do the same. Just buy a waterjug literaly just throughw it on the top, wait for to get cold, once and only once.

The man who i get my filtered water from recommended this product. It is not the cheapest, but not the most expensive. Luckily i had amazon gift cards to use. In fact my mother says she thinks her cup of coffee stays hot longer. Also the hot handle one uses to dispense hot water is very easy to use. I love it so far and would highly recommend.

Hooked up the zero-water filter to this and happy with how it works well.

EFFICIENT HEATING AND COOLING: This hot and cold water cooler has an ultra-efficient condenser that’s cooled via convection and operates quietly.

Good product we had it for over 3 months now and no problems. Just heads up to have hot water you must flip the switch on in the back.

This probably my best purchase in a long time. It does exactly what it says. I can lift the 3 gallon bottle with no problem. That gives me plenty of hot or cold water.

I’m so glad i ordered this water cooler. I’m always hesitant to order a product like this on the internet in case it doesn’t work and you have to package it up for return. It is the perfect size and color for my space and it gets the water really chilly. We use it with the zero water filter. Our water is cold and delicious.

I have had this unit for several months. Hot and/or cold water in a second.

Have used this model for years sans issue. It’s more expensive owing to it’s durability (and it has hot water). It’s used in commercial applications, and it’s easy to clean and keep clean.

Instant hot cocoa or nice cold water. You can even use it to make ramen within minutes. I love having ice cold drinking water on hand at any time. It only leaked with one jug. I changed the jug and it stopped leaking so it was the jugs fault not the dispenser.

So here’s a simple review of the cooler i just recently bought:-water from cold tap is very cold. -water tastes good, no plastic flavor. -i can watch tv without being annoyed by the sound (the cooler is about 10 feet behind the couch.

I am happy with this so far.

After returning another brand dispenser, i tried this one. The hot water and cold water temperatures are perfect, though you can change the cold water temperature if you desire. It is quiet and the water dispenses at a good rate of flow. It was delivered very promptly, and i would definitely buy this again.

I gave the clover only 4 stars because of confusing instructions. First, in the installation section, item #4 they say to check that the baffle is installed correctly inside the cooler tank then show the proper installation diagram. It shows the male extension flipped over and inserted into the female coupling. I tried to accomplish this but the baffle would not move & appeared fixed and appeared to be installed correctly despite the diagram. I decided to ignore this diagram and leave it alone. My instinct was correct because it works properly. Just a stupid drawing that wasted my time and confused things. Second, there is what appears to be a temperature adjustment on the back but no instructions or degree guide are given?.

After i almost dropped on the ground from trying to lug 25 lbs of water uphill to our apartment an 1/8 mile we decided to get a nice water cooler and a monthly subscription to a water company since we don’t really trust the 1920’s water piping in our apartment. My wife loves to drink only hot water so this having the hot tap is a life saver from having me to nuke water in the microwave constantly too. The only caveat with this item is make sure that you plug it into an outlet, not a power strip. The heat elements are updated from a capacitor in the casing and every once in a while it pulls power – hard – from the outlet to recharge. We know this because we hear a audible pop from the unit and the lights go a little dim (since this is 1920+ wiring it might not like the pull and shows it’s displeasure, but i think more modern electrical systems shouldn’t have a problem. )other than that, i couldn’t be happier with the product.

Jewelstick Jewelstik PP123 12-Inch Kitchen Diamond Knife Sharpener : Best in its class.

Puts a razor edge on a knife in seconds. Easiest to use and will make you an expert knife sharpener.

Diamond quality still good but the handle is brittle.

  • Make sure this fits

  • Jewelstik provides the most superior diamond coating on the market
  • Our diamond sharpeners are lightweight, well balanced and easy to use
  • The lens shaped steel shaft permits more efficient sharpening than ordinary cylindrical-shaped tools by allowing more surface to be sharpened in less time
  • Clean with soap and water and a lint free cloth
  • Made in the USA

I have had one of these for more than 20 years and it is far and away the best tool in the drawer for routine knife care. It is capable of putting a new edge on a really abused and dull knife but that isn’t its strong point. Knives should never be allowed to get that dull and that is the strong point of this tool. Regular use will keep all your blades in the best possible condition. Highly recommended at any price.

This is a great tool, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. You’ll never have a dull knife if you own one of these, and use it.

I purchased a diamond knife file with only medium and fine grit several years ago and loved it, but finally wore it out. This file has coarse medium and fine all in one,this is fantastic, and will extend the life of the file. You can remove any doubts that you may have, weather you are a beginner or a pro. This file will out do any steel any day of the week.

Jewelstik PP123 12-Inch Kitchen Diamond Knife Sharpener : Multiple passes every time you take a knife out.

This product worked out very well for the dad who has everything and needs nothing. Service in getting it was great, too. Can’t ask for more than that.

This is my second one,the first one got ‘borrowed ‘ works well especially on ‘better ‘ knives.

Thinking about getting a 2nd one for my mother.

My husband uses this constantly when in the kitchen. He loves how it handles and has only good things to say about it. He is a stickler about having sharp knives when preparing food.

Makes my kitchen knives extremely sharp. You must know how to sharpen knives at the correct angle by hand. If you do you’ll be extremely satisfied.

Good diamond knife sharpener. It has 2 progressive levels of sharpening for your dull knives and a 3rd level for finishing and polishing your knife.

Not quite sure why they felt super-sizing this thing was necessary, but imho it was not. I purchased this to put an edge on my already dull knives and unfortunately it just didn’t do the trick. In my opinion the jewel stick is more for honing and maintenance than sharpening. And since i already had a honing stick this went back. Ended up purchasing the chef’s choice 130 electric sharpener and within 20 minutes of opening the box every knife in my house had a razor sharp edge. If you don’t have a honing stick, this would be a nice addition to your kitchen. But if you’re wanting to put an edge on a dull knife look into an electric sharpener.

Le Coucou Harmony I-B Low Fat Frying Non-Stick No Oil-Smoke Kitchen Countertop Air Fryer, Yummy snacks in a jiffy

I bought this because of an info-mercial for a different pricey air fryer. But this one lives up to my expectations. Not overly loud, mine was the touch screen model and i like that. Food was great added 2 teaspoons of olive oil to a ziplock bag coated my food and air fry. Be hard pressed to tell the difference when done between deep fry and air fry. Just less calories and olive oil is better for your body.

It did shrimp, fish fillets, chimichangas, chicken for general tso’s chicken and veal for veal parm really well. Perhaps not quite as crispy as deep fat frying but a lot better than ‘oven frying’. It did frozen fries very well. We tried doing from fries from raw potatoes. My wife liked them but i thought the hot air dried them out a bit much. The shrimp, fish, chimichangas and breaded veal cutlets were all from scratch, not something frozen that had been partially fried at the factory.

It heats ups quickly and makes things so crispy. I did a personal size frozen pizza in here, too. Just be careful not leave your food in too long. It doesn’t take long at all to get great food.

Comments from buyers

“It offers the best cost-performance ratio
, Fried foods and less expense!
, LOVE it !!!!

Just received a few days ago, so not a lot of experience on it yet. My first attempt at sweet potato fries was perfect. Instead of preheating, i cooked them for 20 minutes on 400. The basket size was much larger than i expected so i am anxious to try spring rolls.

I like this i will buy another one soon.

This air fryer does a wonderful job.

I bought this for my grand daughter. She wanted something that she could cook in that didn’t take grease. She was very pleased with the style of it.

Great for when you need a convection oven but don’t want to wait to preheat a full sized oven. Yes, it basically does what an oven does, but it’s a lot faster, which i appreciate. The pan size isn’t huge, but making a second batch of something isn’t that big a deal because of how fast things cook in it.

We gave this as a gift for christmas. We got a call last night from the recipient that they love this. They cooked fries and chicken nuggets and said both never tasted so good.

Awesome i 😘 love this 👍😘 thank 👍.

It was given as a gift they liked it.

We are retired and don’t desire fried foods all that often, but this appliance is really tops. You can get one with a familiar brand name for about $300 but this one is absolutely super for the price.I had no difficulty using it and it cleans like a champ. I even did some zucchini with my own homemade batter,.

Pros:- easy to use, temperature dial & timer dial- easy to clean- simple pull out drawer design (inner basket wtih locking switch)- not too hot outside during use- much healthier than deep fry- so far durable despite weekly use (3 weeks now)- reasonable price (less than a hundred)cons:- due to less oil used, some vegi may come out a bit driedit’s very simple to use, easy to clean, so i have been using it at least once a week, for potatoes, yams, fish sticks, chicken wings. My family loves fried stuff, they still love the food i made with it, so this is a better choice than deep frying. Etc, i soaked in water first or microwave in water first for few minutes before putting into air-fryer, can turn out crunchy outside and soft inside.

Works well with battered items, panko breaded items not as well.

This is the best egg in my house. Best at reheating food and heating up frozen fries, tater tots, etc. It’s really more of an oven than it is a fryer which is a little disappointing. No fried oreos in this bad boy. But don’t cook 30 tater tots at once, they get soggy.

-great product ,-my wife likes it very much -fast cooking.

Crispy food without the added fat.

My kids are in love with this thing. The only reason i gave it a 4-star is because it does have a smell of plastic when you use it for the first couple of times.

I am single and for various reasons, including long work shifts, eat mostly frozen dinners. Microwave results are barely edible. . Frozen spots and spots that take off skin on the roof of my mouth. I decided to try a low cost air fryer after seeing all the ads. I put some frozen breakfast burritos, single pizza etc in this thing and the results are off the charts. Burritos perfectly toasted and evenly heated and flavor like never before. Instead of soggy limp crusts and cheese burning your mouth, i get perfectly baked crust and cheese done to perfection. No more 3rd degree burns to the roof of my mouth and they could not taste better.They taste like pizza place pizza.

I was skeptical that this would work as advertised. But since we got it a few weeks ago we’ve made wings, dumplings/wontons, chicken tenders, fried potatoes.

Of course french fries are the first thing you’ll want to try here, and i have one tidbit of advice – teeny bit to no oil. And, douse your potatoes in boiling water first, let them sit for about 5 minutes. Not the 30 minutes in cold water bath. This guy also does an awesome job on chicken breasts hamburger patties, and small boneless steaks. Easy to clean, too, if you mind your manners with the fryer. All in all, very much worth the money.

I’m learning new things to use this for, and so far so good. The basket is a little smaller than what i need for some meals, but overall it’s a good product.

This air fryer is what the microwave was when it came out.

Since starting the low carb diet which requires lots of veggies, i have used this fryer daily. Love the kale chips & sweet potato fries. Kids have used it for wings, mushrooms, zucchini , mozzarella cheese sticks, etc & love it. Wish there were more recipes for veggies but thru trial/error, i have no problem. Love the easy cleanup as well.

Cuisinart ICE-20R 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream : Fabulous!

The first time my wife made ice cream with this machine, she called me at work and said ‘we’re never buying store ice cream again’. It could not be easier to use, and makes incredibly tasty ice cream. Yes, it’s a little soft when it comes out, but after a night in the freezer, its perfect. Anyone saying it’s too soft is probably using ingredients that contain vanilla flavorings that in turn contain propylene glycol, which is an anti-freezing agent. Just something to watch out for. Every batch we have made has been wonderful, easy, and easy cleanup.

I’ve never owned an ice cream maker before, but have considered buying one for a number of years now. To be honest, i didn’t have the nostalgia for homemade ice cream that many people have. Every batch of homemade ice cream i’d ever eaten had an unpleasantly graininess to it. But there were so many recipes i wanted to try. Still, if i was going to bother to dish out $50 for an ice cream maker and spend more on ingredients than i’d pay for a pre-packaged carton, that ice cream had better be perfectly smootha trial run on a borrowed ice cream maker and the fabulous chocolate ice cream that resulted at last convinced me that good texture was possible. Flash forward to the arrival of my cute little red cuisinart machine, and my first very own batch of homemade ice cream, prepared with a thoroughly chilled custard–an essential, i’d read, for ideal texture, and a technique that had proved its worth in my trial run. I chose a lovely recipe for malted milk chocolate ice cream from lory brody’s chocolate american style, including the optional chopped malted milk balls. The ice cream turned out perfectly, in terms of both flavor and texture: smooth, creamy, and with just enough air to give it a pleasant lightness. Now i’m looking forward to many more happy batches of quality homemade ice cream with my cuisinart.

Cuisinart ICE-20R 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt & Sorbet Maker, Red

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Makes up to 1-1/2 quarts ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, or frozen drinks
  • A breeze to use–no salt or ice needed
  • Chocolate chips, chopped fruit, nuts, and other ingredients added
  • Recipe booklet included; cord storagem
  • Measures 10 by 15 inches; three-year limited warranty

I have never made ice cream before. I followed the recipes in the booklet that came with the unit. I made the chocolate and the strawberry, both for my husbands birthday yesterday. I followed the recipes exactly as written and i must say they were so easy to make and both turned out perfectly. My husband and i could not believe how insanely wonderful home made ice cream tastes. And this machine was so easy to use. I was lucky to have read the reviews prior to making because as one reviewer wrote, do not use vanilla that contains propylene glycol (pg) (anti-freeze). Some types of vanilla extract contain an edible version of pg and of course this will inhibit your ice cream from getting to a nice firm freeze point. I love this easy to use machine and highly recommend it.

My husband and i love ice cream but hate the price and all the extra garbage that you get in the store-bought types so i got this, thinking it could be a healthier and fun option for having ice cream. What a great machineit’s ridiculously easy to use – we don’t even follow the recipies and have made amazing ice creams. All it takes is 25 minutes and you’re all set. Also, not only is it soooo easy to use, but cleanup is simple.You wash/rinse a bowl and the mixer (which is basically a round spatula). I love this machine and am soooo happy we got it. (and hey, it looks cool too) :).

I bought this for my mom’s birthday and we decided to experiment. I left it in the freezer overnight with a bag of ice in the pot. I also chilled the ice-cream mixture before putting it in the machine. It did a great job of churning the ice cream, however, i did not think it was firm enough to be eaten right away. I left it in the freezer overnight and the next day we had great, tasty ice cream. You may find that the recipes call for a bit more sugar and cream than necessary. The next time i am going to try it with less of both. I am also more interested in low-fat and low-sugar recipes for my parents.

Cuisinart ICE-20R 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt & Sorbet Maker, Red : We have had this ice cream maker for about a year and we use it a few times a week. It has made very many batches of delicious dairy-free ice cream. It only takes between 15 and 20 minutes to make a batch for two people, depending on the ingredients that i use. It is a little loud when it’s running, but not enough to bother me because it doesn’t need to run for a long time. The one problem that i have to mention is that a little bit of the ice cream does go to waste because it sticks to the sides of the bowl while it’s churning, so you end up with a 1/4 inch layer of rock-hard, wasted ice cream all around the bowl. A heads up for other people that don’t consume dairy products: mimiccreme cream substitute, sweetened, 32-ounce aseptic boxes (pack of 4) cream substitute (also for sale on amazon) makes the richest, most delicious ice-cream i have ever had. Coconut milk based ice cream is a close second.

It takes a little practice to get used to what works and what doesn’t with this ice cream maker. For the price though, it is really good. I messed up my first few recipes by over filling the thing. Eventually, i was making my own delicious ice creams and sorbets. So much fun during the summer.

I gave this to my boyfriend for christmas and he loves it. Once you put all the stuff in the bowl it only takes 15 minutes, though it should be noted that it then needs a few hours in the freezer to freeze up fully and that many recipes require a little prior prepping. I still think this is the easiest one you will find and it’s a big plus to not need ice or salt. Very easy to clean and there is an opening at the top so you can watch it work.

It really has a lot of power, is very durable and works great. Just make sure you realize that you are only going to be able to make enough for 4 or 5 decent size servings per batch. Then you have to wait until the bowl freezes again to make more. I would recommend buying an extra bowl if you have a large family. Overall, i am pleased with this item.

This product turned out to be what i expected based on other’s reviews,but it does what it says if you follow the directions carefully. The only thing is that it does not get the ice cream to a solid texture,like soft serve as other’s have said,so you can freeze it more within a few hours if preferred as i did. It is slightly noisy but it does not bother me,sound can be compared to a blow dryer on low perhaps but not exact,other than that minor issue it works pretty good and i intend to use it plenty,also i was glad to purchase it in my favorite color red.

I love, love, love my ice cream maker. My family and i have enjoyed trying different creations. To my surprise it also came with an extra freezer bowl so you can make two batches without having to weight for the freezer bowl to completely freeze (about 6 hours). We found that when making fruit flavors it is best to put the fruit on as a topping as opposed to mixing it in because the fruit freezes and they don’t have the same texture. It comes with several recipes and there are plenty available on line. I don’t think the motor is very loud but if you are trying to talk or watch tv then it may be so i just put it in another room or on the patio. I also put a small towel over the top to keep it clean and help freeze faster. Yummy hint: i use condensed milk instead of sugar. Try experimenting with different milk products and yogurts.

It really helps in making my purchases. On that note, i’d like to send along my comments for this ice cream machine. Some previous reviews commented on the noise they make. I don’t find it to be any louder than when i’m running my microwave. In the first week i had it, i made 4 different batches of ice cream. I also bought the extra bowl, a good investment, too, so i can make 2 kinds in one evening, if needed. I keep my bowls in my extra freezer (which is probably colder than the one over the fridge). The key is having your freezer cold enough. All in all, i recommend this ice cream maker. The ben & jerry recipe book is great, too. But follow the measurements exactly, otherwise you’ll end up with overflow.

I bought this machine for my husband following the recommendations here. Consequently i also bought him the extra freezing container and two books of recipes,one being the ben and jerry’s book. So far he has produced several excellent batches of ice cream. We are delighted and impressed.It’s so easy and so much fun.

When i first got my ice cream maker, 3 days ago, i cleaned and put it in the freezer. As sugguested i waited two days before trying it out. I mixed the ingredients for the basic vanilla (except a few changes: 1c heavy cr, 1c light cr, 1/2c soy milk, 1/2c half & half, 2tsp vanilla ex, whatever amount of sugar it asked for, and added some green tea powder), and placed it in the fridge for about an hr-hr & a half. After pouring the ingredients in the top i let it go for 25 min. (as suggested instead of 30)and whala the ice cream came out deliciously soft serve. I put it in the freezer after eating about a cup and this morning i took another sample. It was a hard icecream on the softer side of the spectrum. Still so goodi can’t wait to try another flavor, frozen yogurt, and eventually premium(hard, i’m guessing). If your after a nice automatic ice cream machine, this (so far) has seemed like a great deal for the money (even though it’s a little higher then i was hoping to spend).

It has been working great for us. Just pour in any kind of juice to make slushies in the summer.

I love ice cream and now i can make it and eat it in 20 minutes. I keep two bowls in the freezer so i always have one ready to use. I fix the ingredients first, then take the bowl out of the freezer, pour in the mix and 20 minutes later have ice cream. I have made many kinds of ice cream, all turning out well, using ben & jerry’s basic recipe. Every kitchen needs this appliance.

Easy to use and easy to clean.

I decided to get this ice cream maker just for fun, mostly to use with friends when it gets hot. It had great reviews already so i felt pretty good about this model. I’ll list the pros and cons below:===pros===*really easy to make good ice cream*recipe book included (and recipes taste great)*easy to clean/maintain*1. 5 quarts is perfect for 3-4 people===cons===*takes a long time to freeze the mixing bowl (20+ hours to be safe) – along with that, you can’t really make 2 batches (if you want different flavors) in a row unless you buy another bowl separately. While it would be nice to be able to make different flavor batches consecutively, i don’t have enough of a need to do that to take away any stars. This really is a great product and has been very reliable so far.

I bought this because my son was diagnosed with a dairy allergy. I wanted to be able to provide ice cream without breaking the bank. There are new coconut milk ice creams available but at $6 a pint i could pay for this unit in a hurry. I buy my thai brand coconut milk (not lite) from walmart at $1. You just freeze the cylander, add 2 cans of coconut milk, a little sugar, vanilla and whatever else you want to flavor and let it go. 1/2 hour later i had what looked like soft serve ice cream. My children were so thrilled.

I’ve had terrific results with this making ice cream, yogurt, & especially sorbets. The learning curve is quick enough to be fun & complex enough to keep you busy for a while. Freezing dulls the taste buds, so your base – whatever it is – should taste just a little too sweet, a little too strong (this is one of the reasons why melted ice cream is kinda. This also makes it important to concentrate flavors, which can be a challenge. Here’s a recipe template: slowly reduce 2 cups of wine by half – i use a slow cooker with the lid off – it takes hours, but you don’t have to do anything. If you want, infuse the wine with herbs, spices, citrus peel, small frogs, whatever, during this time (it may take more than you think to have the right presence). Stir in 2/3 – 1 cup sugar, till dissolved. Add this syrup to 2-3 cups fruit juice or puree.

I knew i might regret buying an ice cream maker, so i bought a red one to remind me that too much of a good (great) thing can be dangerous. I read other reviews for this and other ice cream makers, and settled on this one for my purchase. Some reviewers found it to be a little noisy, but it isn’t unbearable; electric mixers and food processors are considerably noisier. The great thing is the ice cream is so very good; my husband particularly likes the gelato. I love this new toy, but i’m glad i bought it in red. Otherwise, the ice cream could be very tempting every single day.

I got this ice cream maker for my husband, an avid ice cream lover, for christmas. However, neither of us had made ice cream before and weren’t sure that amateurs like us, or a relatively cheap machine such as this one, would make quality ice cream. Making delicious ice cream with this machine couldn’t be easier. The machine is easy to assemble and easy to use. You need to keep the bowl in the freezer for at least 8 hours before using the machine though, so you can’t make one batch right after another. There are many ice cream recipes floating over the internet, but we use a very simple and delicious ice cream base that never disappoints: one can of condensed milk, one can of evaporated milk, one can of regular milk and 2 eggs. We mix this up in the blender or with a beater, and jazz it up with vanilla, almond extract, or whatever liquor we have on hand and pour it into the machine. Twenty minutes later, depending on the type of ice cream we’re making, we add nuts, cookie dough, caramel, fudge, marzipan, etc. The possibilities are endless and the result is always delicious.

1.7 cuft Superconduction Refrigerator, Works great. Very quite and does a nice job of

Love the refrigerator, quiet, perfect size, love light inside. Upon receiving it big dent in the back corner. Needed for that week so i kept it, other wise i would have sent it back. I read other reviews with the same issue, i wonder it these are dented to begin with and they send them out. The company knows what a hassle it would be to return them. Needs better quality control.

This refrigerator gets the job done, and the interior space is nearly completely empty. This device really seems to make the peltier coolers work. I needed to dismantle mine to change out the fans for something much less noisy. The packaging for this device is far deficient. If the delivery people do not take excellent care of your package, your device will arrive damaged. I would be completely willing to spend a extra $50 on this thing to get better fans and packaging.

The refrigerator is perfect but i still don’t have a papers for the warranty,i paid.

Comments from buyers

“peltier solid state
, It’s not bad, but it’s not that quiet
, I love this fridge

Have used it next to my desk for a few months. It’s quiet & perfect for keeping my lunch & drinks in.

The little refrigerator is quiet and cools satisfactorily at medium setting. Since i have very little space on my sailboat, i keep in the forward cabin next to my bed, so being whisper-quiet is its best feature.

I bought this refrigerator for my office almost a year ago and am very happy with it. It keeps my drinks very cold. No space wasted on unneeded freezer compartment. Easily holds 24 cans of soda.

Works better and quieter than the old one did and that one lasted for over ten years.

First one arrived with damage, but was replaced with no hassle. Has since run continuously for three years, keeps things colder than my refrigerator at home, and is very quiet.

Very quite and does a nice job of cooling everything i put in it.

Quiet, cold, and i never had problems with frost or uneven cooling. The downside: i have bought two of these, and they both just stopped working after 2-2.

It works as it should, keeps a very stable temperature. And most important is really quiet. I work as a recording engineer, and this fridge is so quiet i can actually keep it in my studio control room without anybody noticing it’s there. If you open the fridge, it will run for a little while to cool down again, and while that does make some noise, it doesn’t just randomly start that up unexpectedly. The room i work in is kept at about 70 degrees through the building’s a/c. They shipped me the fridge in a box within a box, so there was no corner damage, as i have seen others mention.

I bought this based on the quiet operation reviews. I was looking for a completely silent small drinks refrigerator. It’s not bad, but it’s not that quiet, either. It’s about the same sound level as a mac pro or other workstation-class computer, so it’s easily audible at the other end of my 32-ft long room. And, the character of the sound is about the same too — you are hearing a whirring fan. I had high hopes for the low sound level based on the other recording engineer’s review, but this is not suitable for use in a tracking or recording room, in my opinion. The noise floor in my room when the unit is running comes up from about 29db to nearly 40. If you are in an ordinary office situation, i think you will be pleased. If you are looking for silent operation, this is far from it.

I really recommend this refrigerator i bought five one for me and the other for my friends. We are very happy with the product.

I don’t use the refrigerator myself. I bought that for our superintendent’s office. It fits in his office and works well.

I am very happy with this purchase. Bought it for my boss’s office. Very quiet, small enough to fit the room and big enough to keep all snacks he wants.

This is a small quiet refrigerator and great for offices. It is able to keep my food cool, but not cold enough for freezing. However, we have yet to see how long this cooling system will last before it fails. I recommend it at least for now.

Bosch Styline Stand Mixer : Total blender failure, who can help me??

I should’ve bought this earlier. Then i didn’t need to buy a bendix.

I am surprised at how quietly it operates.

Great machine, i love it, but the teeny gasket in the blender does not work. I wasted some expensive ingredients as it all flowed all over my counter. I need my blender desperately can bosch help[?. Will they??what gasket replacement will work???. I need it now, thank you, charlene.

8 pounds loaded 13 flours and seeds breads like nothing. Plus everything that its included in the package. I’ll update the review with the new breads i’ ll make with these toy. Update:used it today to make potato chips, no problems at all, and very easy to clean.

Bosch Styline Stand Mixer with Continuous Shredder and Bosch Blender Bundle of 2 Items : I have a ka that i bought about 12 years ago. I liked it okay, but this mixer is so much better. It’s light, easy to use, works wonderfully. I’ve made cinnamon rolls, cookies, bread, etc.

Best bread doughgreat value for my money.

The speed lever on my 4 year old professional mixer broke so i purchased this bosch stand mixer. There were no instructions for the blender. The slicer and grater was difficult to use and didn’t do a very good job with mushrooms, onions and carrots. I tried all sizes but the veggies were slightly mascerated since the discs would plug up and needed frequent cleaning. I intended this bosch styline to replace my kitchenaid and cusinart (both take up a lot of counter space) but it was a disappointment.

Excellent quality, great performance. The english instructions are not entirely clear in i. How to attach the blender part, but time and patience got it figured out. As with all automated machines, there are little drawbacks. Especially when using the mixer function, the whisk can only reach certain areas, it is not as flexible as a human arm who can position it anywhere. Still, it saves a lot of work.

The bosch styline/mum5 is good kitchen mixing machine when it comes to its basic functions (beating dough, shredding, cutting) and has a decent size for a household up to 3/4 persons. The price is decent when it comes in the continuous shredder package deal. But a greater variety in watt/power, as offered in europe (up too 1600watt offered there, but 800 w would be o. ), would be a nice thing to have as a choice and because of the smoothy function even though the blender is doing fine when it comes to blend frozen strawberry/banana smoothies. When it comes to heavy dough bread it works fine and the mum5 is an advancement from the mum4 because of the way its mixing bowl is attached to the machine (no dancing of the bowl anymore). Thus, more power would be nice for bread makers who do not want to invest in the much more expensive and larger (machine and add-on items wise) bosch universal/mum6 whose add-on items are easier to purchase when compared to the bosch styline. The low star rating for the mum5/styline is based on the fact, that it is nearly impossible to get all-on items (meat and fruit grinder, citrus press, plastic mixing bowl. . ) for this machine in the u. For a decent price or at all. One online shop is pleasanthillgrain because amazon. Com does not sell the add-ons. Nevertheless, one can order those add-ons from amazon. De (germany), but the part number has to be ’45x’ or ‘5’ to include the styline/mum5.

Why did i buy it: one of the few kitchen machines/ food processors that comes with almost all types of kitchen tools (e. Blender, mixer, mandolin slicer etc. Moreover the size of it makes it easy to store in the kitchen. Here is the whole story: somehow the blender jug/jar broke (within the warranty period) and the seller replaced it immediately without any questions. Then, the machine stopped working 1 month after the warranty expired. I was very upset and contacted the seller again. I sent the machine in (at my cost) and it turned out that it cannot be repaired. Without any further questions, the seller replaced it with a brand new unit at the seller’s cost.

I have an old (about 40 years) oster kitchen center (stand mixer with dough hooks, blender and shredder/food processor) that is 450 watts and i would always use it to make bread or for those occasional heavy mixing jobs that the hand mixer can’t handle. Even though i don’t bake as much as i used to, i figured it was time to replace it when the regular beater drive stopped working recently. I wanted a stand mixer to replace it that had about the same wattage and would handle more than just cake batter. I thought about a ka but they are just so heavy and bulky (basically like what i am replacing) and they are not cheap. Plus their reviews are quite mixed as far as quality and reliability. I really wanted something i could store away when i wasn’t using it that didn’t take up much room and wasn’t too heavy move around. I know bosch is a good name so i researched the three models they make. The compact, the universal and the styline (which is new to the us). I decided on the styline because it has more wattage than the compact but capacity size wise is the same even though it cost about $100 more. The universal was more machine than i needed and it costs $100 more than the styline without any attachments.

I will recommend this mixer to all of my friends and family.

Have just had this mixer for 3 weeks, but so far love it. Made heavy whole wheat/10 grain cereal bread, dinner rolls and sliced potatoes for frying. It purrs like a kitten (or a little louder). The instruction booklet could be better, but i figured out what i needed to do to make it work myself. It has some safety features that kind of stump you at first, but when you finally figure them out they do make sense. My 36 year old oster kitchen center was just getting to the end of it’s life, and this is a great replacement for it.

Perfect food processor and mixer, takes less space on a kitchen counter comparing to kitchenaid. Right from the box can also do more. Of course no retro charm but also its very ergonomic. And for less money you are buying more device comparing to kitchenaid.

Just what i required except i am now looking for the food processor to add to it.

This is the best mixer made. I bought a kitchen aid professional 600 and the motor burned up in a month. This mixer has the power to mix on high with out cutting off or smelling like its burning. I love the blender attachment. Havent used the shredder slicer yet. But i am looking forwars to it. I make cakes and cookies and sell them. From home and this machine get its done with ease.
