Breville BHM500RXL Handy Mix Digital Hand Mixer : Just what I imagined

This is the best hand mixer i’ve owned in years. My last one broke where the one beater went in (plastic casing) and all i was mixing up were chocolate chip cookies. This is a powerful mixer, well made and easy to use. Some reviews had stated it was too powerful even starting out on the 1 setting. I don’t find that to be true on my part, but to each ones’ preference. Am very glad i purchased this and love using it (which is quite often). You just can’t find well usa made and durable hand mixers in the stores anymore.

Got this to replace a lesser quality hand mixer. Works ok, but replacing it because one of the beater gears stripped out. This mixer’s controls are a bit awkward for larger hands – i frequently changed speeds without wanting to, since the lower and upper speed buttons were too close to my grip. Ejector button also a bit tight (got to push hard to eject the beaters).

Breville BHM500RXL Handy Mix Digital Hand Mixer, Red

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 16 speeds for light mixing to high speed whipping
  • Backlit lcd with timer function
  • Non tip heel rest
  • 200-Watt Twin Beater Action
  • Includes two flat beaters, one wire whisk, and two dough hook attachements

I do a lot of baking and this is the best mixer i have ever owned. It is worth the money and the 16 speeds helps so much.

I wanted a mixer that would be reliable,so i read all the mixer reviews and picked the breville. It has a lot of power,so it should be reliable,but it really has no low speed. If you add dry ingredients to your bowl,you might get them all over you. I like the fact that it is digital and it is easy to hold. It is great for heavy batters,but be sure to keep it down in the bowl.

Difficult to eject the beaters. While using it to make icing it started sounding funny then stopped. I tried it later on and it worked fine while not mixing anything but when added ingredients to the bow, it quit again. I will try it once more before giving up. I need a dependable workhorse with the holiday season upon us. I’m beginning to think these applicances are not meant to hold up to the workload. I like to cook/bake so i need something that will do it justice.

Breville BHM500RXL Handy Mix Digital Hand Mixer, Red : How many times has the recipe called for you to beat for two minutes and you’re not sure when you started. This mixer actually times it. Love the different beaters that come with it. Plus it is not too heavy to hold.

It is very sturdy compared to others i have had. It is very difficult to eject the beaters.

It is a good mixer for the price, although i dont think i would buy it again since the first speed setting is way to fast for what i like. Also it isnt the greatest mixer when using it for dough as i can feel the motor has a hard time mixing with pizza dough for example.

I had a mixer that lasted me about 11 years, when it died i tried another one of a same or similar brand and i went through 3 more in a short amount of time. I wanted one that would last a long time again. I have had this mixer for a couple of months and have used it many times. I love how many settings it has and it has a guide printed on the mixer so if it is a stiffer dough you don’t put the mixer too high. The low is lower than some of the other mixers i have used, which is nice because then in doesn’t cause a cloud of dust when mixing in flour or powdered sugar. I have not tried it with bread dough, i use my bigger mixer for that, but i have done many other less stiff doughs.

Still noisier than i had hoped for. I love the whip attachment, it is awsome for whipping cream.

I’m really impressed with this mixer. Not only does it look great, but it’s hands down the best mixer i’ve ever owned. From whipping cream to cake mix batter, to egg whites, this does a superior job and has become my culinary workhorse.

I owned this mixer for well over a year now and all i can say is wow. Had not heard of this brand before finding it on amazon so i browsed the reviews and decided to take a chance on it.

This is an attractive mixer that works well. I love the fact that it has a turbo button for an extra push of speed. The digital window is clear to see with a timer that is a great feature to use. It does take a little effort to pull out the beaters, but not a big deal to me. This mixer comes with dough hooks, whisk and regular beaters. I only wish this had a retractable power cord, recommended.

I chose this mixer because of the color and the reviews it received. I used it to mix chocolate chip cookie dough and it lasted through the whole process without slowing down or smoking. It fit well in my hand and was not overly heavy. I’ve used my mother’s 25 year old hand mixer for the last several years. It still runs, but i’m glad to switch to the breville now. The old one never made it through the whole cookie dough process.

So far, i am happy with this mixer. I dont think it is too loud and it stands and stores nicely. I like having a whisk attachment along with the bread dough hooks, although i have not used them yet. There is a lot of power for big jobs with all the settings. The built in timer is a nice feature. No more setting the timer on the microwave or looking at the clock. I feel confident in the breville name and believe this mixer wil last a long time.

This was the perfect alternative to a stand mixer. I don’t do alot of serious baking, but needed something more substantial than an average hand mixer. This fit the need perfectly .

Worked ok for less than a year. Nice mixer, not as much power and torque as expected. Electronics stopped working properly. When the high speed was pressed it would only work sporadically. Same thing started happening with regular speed functions. Progressively got worse and worse till became unreliable. Called breville and was told it was passed warranty period. Offered to sell me one with 20% discount from them. A bit of an insult as you can by it even cheaper than that on amazon.

I have several breville appliances and am very pleased with them all. When my old hand mixer died i was pleased to find that breville has a hand mixer. I like its wide blade standard beaters (some hand mixers don’t feature these any more). I haven’t used the dough hooks, but the whisk makes wonderful whipped cream and meringue. I especially like the flat base. No more hanging the beaters over the bowl edge while adding ingredients. It has nothing to do with the mixer’s great performance, but i do love the red color. Breville has another winner.

The lcd display for speed and timing seem stuck on 16 and 01:27 no matter what i did. The booklet said nothing about a display sticker that you must first peel off. D’ohthe beaters did not self-eject. The booklet seemed to imply that pressing the eject button would release the beaters and it does but they don’t fall out. I had my old beater for 30 years and have had two high-end replacements which i returned for various reasons.

Bought this for my sister as a christmas gift. I decided to go with breville because they have way more power than kitchen aid. I am on my 3rd kitchen aid hand mixer in 5 years – the only reason i go back is because its replaced due to warranty. After buying a breville blender and having great success i decided this was the way to go for my sister. There is so much power and it mixes like a champ. No need for a stand mixer, this one will do it all. Now i have to break down and buy myself one.

Bought as gift for daughter. She enjoys cooking a lot so we also gave her a 1hp kitchenaid. She actually likes the breville better.

I choose this five star because that is what this is five stars, mixed a heavy heavy batter of oatmeal cookies and fresh apple cookies and no problem with this mixer so far. Mixed my heavy dough that i usually have to mix by hand and never even had to turn this way up, doesnt seem to have a problem with any mixing so far. Looks great and cleans up very easily. The only little thing is the turbo power button i have hit and had to change the way i control the mixer, other than that, love this mixer and would highly recommend to family and others.

GE PT9800SHSS Combination Wall Oven, would highly recommend.

Everything i expected, would highly recommend.

We have only been using this for a few weeks, but initial impressions are very good. We wanted to create space in a redone kitchen so opted to get rid of our double oven and microwave and go with this combo. As we used the 2nd oven infrequently, we believe this to be the best use of space – it opens the space over our range top. The microwave cook feature works well – we did a frozen pizza in it the other day. While not getting the crust as crispy as we normally like, it was fine and browned. It is a bit of an inconvenience to trade out the trays as different ones need to be used for the oven function than used with the microwave. We will certainly use it mostly in the microwave function. Settings are easy to use and the look is a clean modern look.

Its everything i hoped it would be and more.

Key specs for GE PT9800SHSS Combination Wall Oven:

Comments from buyers

“but initial impressions are very good. We wanted to create space in a redone
, The lower oven is great, however
, This unit looks great. Hubby and I installed it ourselves

Hubby and i installed it ourselves. It’s not difficult if you have some electrical/remodeling experience. The oven takes a while to heat up. I’ve used the top as an oven and really didn’t notice much of a speed difference between using the top or the bottom. The advantium top is supposed to be faster. I just didn’t get that result. I still love the option of having two ovens if i need it.

Very easy to use and works great. I don’t use the top oven as a microwave, but do use it as a makeshift toaster oven. The speed cook function is terrific. In the main oven, the steam cleaning doesn’t seem to work that well. It leaves a residue and everything is soaked when it is done but i usually try to keep it clean by wiping it out on a regular basis instead of trying to clean it after it becomes a mess. Minor issues but i would still recommend.

Have had my ge for 3 months still working great .

Exceeded expectations would highly reccomend.

I love using this modern microwave and convection oven. I did research two months before i made my choice.

The lower oven is great, however, the speed cook smaller oven on top is questionable. Doesn’t always thoroughly cook the food without burning the top of it. The top over does not offer a normal bake setting; only convection bake. The lower oven cooks very evenly, true to temperature, easy to clean up spills.

I’ve had this for about 3 weeks now, and so far it’s been absolutely amazing. One of the first things i was anxious to try was making hamburgers, which while they lack that dark flame-grilled look and taste you get on an outside grill, they are well cooked and juicy in just a few minutes. I tried it with the metal pan that comes with the oven first, but then i bought the grille tray made for this oven (comes separately from the ge website, which had the best online price) and they came out even better because the ridges in the tray lift them up out of the cooking juices/grease. Since mom lives with me, it’s great to have a very user-friendly interface. I was replacing a thermidor double oven, and this one is so much quieter. Another reviewer noted that the preheat time is a little longish, and while i agree, the speed cook function for many foods that doesn’t require preheating due to the instant halogen heat in the upper advantium oven. I bought this model on the recommendation of a neighbor who adores hers, and i must say the advice was spot-on. I can actually see the progress dinner is making without having to open up the door. The only advice i would give you is that since the lighting is led, your food won’t look as brown as it would in an older oven with incandescent lighting which is not as bright, so at first you might be tempted to overcook things a bit while looking for that nice golden-brown on your muffins or what have you. The automatic settings for weight and food type have worked well for me so far, and the defrost mode is almost as good as my old samsung over-the-range microwave (which was the be all-end all of microwaves for me, but won’t fit in my new kitchen). It comes with a cookbook that has speed-cook adjusted recipes, and i have found that pinterest has several as well. I haven’t had it long enough to need to customize or convert any recipes to speed cook mode, but there are so many settings for food types, quantity and weight that i may not need to.

Zojirushi NP-HBC10 5-1/2-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer : Best Rice Cooker ever!

My wife is japanese and i lived there for several years. This is a great rice cooker that cooks 5. 5 cups of rice, which is plenty for dinner and for left overs. Highly recommend it and it has been very reliable.

This is a great induction rice cooker and warmer with multiple programming options. It is attractively designed and easy to carry with the attached handle. It takes the guesswork out of cooking rice and, if desired, the timer can be set to have cooking completed by a specific time. The only issue i have with the cooker is that, when using the programmed settings, the timer does not display the remaining cooking time until approximately 8 minutes before it will finish. There is a chart showing estimated cooking times for the different varieties of rice, so if you refer to that, you can figure out when the rice will be ready. I have not yet used the gaba brown setting, but increased nutritional value is the benefit of that extended cooking time. This is not an inexpensive appliance, but i have enjoyed using it and we eat rice much more frequently than when i prepared it on the stove and had to closely monitor it.

I’ve made rice several different ways over the years, but the zojirushi np-hbc10 is by far the best i’ve ever used and the quality of the rice that comes out of it is amazing and rivals any that i’ve had in restaurants in both korea and japan. Prior to this, i’ve been using a $30 steamer with a timer on it and i thought that was easy to use. As far as ease of use, this thing blows it away, drives off, comes back, pokes it with a stick then blows it away once more for good measure. As others have mentioned, one thing to note is that when you’re measuring your rice, use the included measuring cup that’s gauged for the japanese measurement. Other than that, wash your rice, use the measuring marks in the pan for your water and sit back and wait for the best rice you’ll ever have. I make a lot of onigiri using sushi rice and this cooker does an amazing job. I’ve even experimented with rice-based lunch dishes mixing a bunch of things from the cupboard and it has never failed to impress. I highly recommend this rice cooker. Having used much cheaper cookers, i was a little leary to pull the trigger on such an expensive unit, but i’m glad i did.

I was never a fan of rice because no matter what we did, we couldn’t get the moisture content of the rice right. It was always too mushy or too dry. Wild grain rice was more difficult because of it’s longer cooking time. We tried a cheap rice maker and the rice burned to the bottom. Then a coworked recommended paying the premium price for this unit and insisted i couldn’t screw up the rice with this. That recommendation was correct. Making perfect rice is easy and it’s perfect every time. Brown, white, sushi, gaba, etc. You will not regret buying this. We use it 2-3 times per week and it’s one of the best purchases we’ve ever made.

  • The Best Rice Cooker I’ve Ever Owned
  • cup size explained + my two cents from 20 years with a Zo
  • This rice cooker is unbelievably good. I’ve used and been familiar with Zojirushi rice

Zojirushi NP-HBC10 5-1/2-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer with Induction Heating System, Stainless Steel

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 5-1/2-cup rice cooker and warmer with micro computer technology
  • Superior induction heating evenly distributes heat for excellent results
  • Multi-menu cooking functions; LCD control panel; keep warm; timer
  • Spatula, spatula holder, and rice-measuring cup included
  • Measures 14-3/16 by 9-13/16 by 7-15/16 inches

I’ve owned this rice cooker for four months now. I use it about 3 to 4 times a week with stellar results each and every time. I’ve made rice, short grain rice (to make sushi with), brown basmati rice, short grain brown rice, mahogony and wild rice mixed together, and even quinoa with it. They have all come out perfect with it. A lot of times, i’ll throw in the rice in the morning and don’t even think about it until dinner comes around, at which point i have perfect rice waiting for me. However, i must say that when i did this with quinoa, i felt it came out a touch bitter (it had been in there for almost six hours). I’ve also made gabba brown rice but have to admit, didn’t notice a difference with regular brown rice. I grappled with which size to get for a good month before i actually ordered it. We’re a family of five and i was making a rice or grain each night with dinner (never had my results come out this perfect even though i’m a pretty good cook). If you don’t know what size to get either, i have some helpful information to guide you.

If you consume a lot of rice, it is worth spending the extra $ for this cooker. I wasn’t a fan of brown rice until i cooked it in this rice cooker. . Fluffy w/ the slightest hint of a crunch, perfect. It’s quite and the setting are easy to use. We have had it for nearly a yr & no issues w/ this unit.

Sometimes i think i purchased zojirushi np-hbc10 5-1/2-cup (uncooked) rice cooker and warmer with induction heating system, stainless steel because i think “zojirushi” is so much fun to say. This is not the case, however. I did a lot of research and really agonized over the most sensible machine to purchase. Rice has always been a problem, because an electric stove is not sensitive to cutting down on the heat quickly. Boil overs and sticky gummy messes were often the result. I had a great gadget that was a glass disc you could insert in the bottom of a pan to prevent boil-overs. That got tossed after one broke and i had to throw away a whole pot of beans. The solution presented itself at a luncheon when a great friend of mine offered to cook the rice for me in her rice cooker in my kitchen. Not only did it free up a burner for me, but the rice turned out terrific. After reading many reviews and learning the different types of rice cookers, i had to decide whether i wanted to spend the money for an induction rice cooker.

This rice cooker is unbelievably good. I’ve used and been familiar with zojirushi rice cookers as roommates have had them in the past, but this was my first purchase of one on my own. Zojirushi’s build quality is excellent. And the machine just cooks perfect rice, all the time. This model, with its extended menu set, allows for a lot more options—brown rice, sushi rice, different degrees of hardness, etc. It also offers a porridge setting, which has become one of our favourite functions for this machine. With it, we can make oatmeal, polenta, or other things of that ilk. So, i can load it up with steel cut oats, set the time for 7am, and bam, breakfast is ready. Same for rice and dinner time, rinse your rice, measure it out, set the time for 6pm.

Hi first off i have to say i absolutely love this rice cookeri looked at and read all the reviews for multiple brands and kept coming back to this one. I feel the price is good for what you are getting there are definitely different prices and lots of different features but the convenience of set it in the morning and go and it be ready and waiting for you when you want it is great and the keep warm feature i’ll admit at first i thought the rice might just be ok but after trying it right after its done or several hours later its still perfect. My girlfriend is asian so we rice almost every day so for us its definitely worth the cost. Her family also owns this same one. I do agree however with other reviewers that if your using this only a few times a week or occasionally its probably a little expensive and i would buy one the the other zojirushi models. I have had this only about 2 weeks and have tried white and mixed rice only i’ll update when i try the sushi and brown rice settings.

Before this rice cooker, i had used only two methods to cook rice; paraboiled rice bag in boiling water and a black & decker rice cooker that cost around $20. The b&d would always burn the bottom of the rice and brown rice was always on the crunchy, under cooked side. I just settled for it thinking that’s how it had to be. Then i purchased the zojirushi. The initial cost is a lot to consider, but i have enjoyed this rice cooker. I have now tried different types of rice like black japonica, white/brown jasmine, wehani, basmati regular brown and white rice. I now have an appreciation of how rice is supposed to be prepared. I really like having rice as a side now and that says a lot coming from a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy. Throw in any aromatic rice and the whole house is filled with mouth watering fragrances. I have used the keep warm cycle for up to 24 hours after the rice was done and it was still moist and delicious. You can also cook steel cut oats in this rice cooker which is a real treat if you like oatmeal. It has a cycle called gaba brown. I think this cycle makes the brown rice more tender as it heats the rice for 2 hours at about 120 degrees before cooking it for an hour to increase the amount of available gaba. For those who, like me haven’t heard about brown rice and gaba, it is a molecule found in brown rice that promotes some level of relaxation (based upon dosage of course.

Are you tired of rice that is sometimes great and sometimes only so-so?. Do you put your rice on high and forget to turn it down until you smell it burning?. Well, this rice cooker will solve those problems forever. It’s so easy, and the rice, whether brown or white, is perfect every time. All you need is a few stir-fry recipes and you can enjoy quick, easy, and nutritious meals. It’s so easy to clean – no more scrubbing those scorched pans or stove tops. I can’t say enough about this product. Update: i’ve had this rice cooker for 4 years now and use it a couple of times a week – sometimes more. My favorite use is making risotto. You lightly brown the onions and rice right in the pan, add broth and wine and walk away.

I am a chinese and i eat rice for over 25 years. As the world’s most good at eating race, i strongly rocommand you to by this japanese rice cooker. Although chinese always feel not that friendly to japanese, we have to admit that they do a much better job in technology. For example, the technology such like ih heating, coating and the tank manufactur is much better than us. Ih and the tank makes the rice performance better that normal rice cooker. The coating layer makes it easy clean. The computer control system helps a lot on cooking. Me and my friends loves this rice cooker. And it has worked for me two years without a problem. The bad thing is the japanese is discrimination against overseas markets.

This is an induction rice cooker, with nearly 2000 watts of power, in europe you’ll need a voltage converter erich is heavy and expensive, not worth the buy. You can but it at yumasia or something similar. Its a page of uk where they sell adapted rice cookers.

My wife never used to like rice, she loves the rice that zoji makes it for us, especially on the gaba setting. We eat at least one meal a day from it, usually two. Yes it is well made, attractive and made in japan. Useful info:the zojirushi measuring cup is approx 2/3 of an standard imperial 8oz cup. 66 “real” cups of uncooked rice. 3 zoji cups of rice makes a big enough batch for 8 people to have a large side of rice. 2 zoji cups makes enough for two people to eat rice as the main meal. There is a separate scale for brown rice, of which 4 is the maximum. The gaba setting is effective at starting the sprouting process. Using lundberg’s short grain brown rice (organic) on the gaba setting white tips are visible on the ends of the rice. Lundberg’s short grain organic brown rice is fantastic, as is black rice (aka forbidden rice)clean up is easy, we use a couple swirls with a nylon brush on bowl and removable lidhow we use the zoji:in the evening we load zoji with 1 zoji cup of mccanns’s steel cut oats and a tablespoon of whole oat groats and bit of salt. We fill the water up tp the 3 mark on the white rice scale. We use the porridge setting and have timer 1 set to 6am.

This rice cooker has made life so much nicer. I like the taste and feel of brown rice when it has been in the gaba mode. I have been trying different recipes in the book “the ultimate rice cooker cookbook” by beth hensperger and julie kaufman. Tapioca pudding, orange dessert quinoa, japanese barley and rice are some recipes i have tried so far. This rice cooker can be used for more than rice. I like the bowl that the rice is cooked in. This nonstick heavy duty bowl can be taken out to clean. It has lines inside to show how much liquid is used for various kinds and amounts of rice.

This is the best rice cooker out there. I had a previous zojirushi that i used for 14 years. And it was still working without any issue. But i wanted to get the stainless steel as all of my other appliances have been upgraded to stainless steel. Have to say though that this cooks the rice very well. Also the rice bowl inside is heavier and the overall build seem much better compared to my old one. Do not use those cheap rice cookers. The difference in the rice is so much better with this even though the price is higher.

I could never imagine brown rice could be so good before i made them in this small little device. I have been using brown rice on and off for few years now. But cooking it was difficult. Won’t come right every time and all those brown rice issues. So, finally i took the bullet and spend 200+ on this device. I am happy i first made brown rice on porridge setting. Yesterday, i tried them on brown rice setting. I never ate brown rice with so much happiness. Just based on those brown rice i don’t care that i paid so much for this device. If you can afford it go for it.

I purchased this rice cooker to start eating more brown rice as well as to make sushi rice. I did my research and i found a lot of cheaper models that people had good reviews and bad reviews on. The biggest reason i chose this brand and model was for the longevity of this appliance and how much i intended on using this in my kitchen and also the japanese are known for making quality products. My experience using the rice cooker has been great and i have used it about a dozen time with less then a month of ownership. The cooking functions i have used on it so far are, quick cook, regular white rice, gaba brown, brown rice and sushi rice. All of these setting worked great once you set the 24 hour clock you can tell the unit when you want your rice to be done by and it will be ready by 5:00pm when you are getting off work. I do want to share with you my experience with the sushi rice function because it took some getting use to. The inner pot has different water levels marked on it so you can use the cup it came with to measure the rice and fill the water level accordingly. Well the tricky part is when you add one cup technically its about 3/4 of a u. Cup to the pot the sushi line that says 1 is asking for about 400ml of water. The problem is when you put 400ml of water or fill it to the first line the rice is too soft almost like mush. So i then scaled back the water to 300ml and again the same problem so i cut the water amount in half to 200ml per cup of sushi rice and now it makes restaurant quality sushi rice. The other settings make great rice as well and i did find that the gaba rice to be a bit on the soft side i may play with the water level as well. Sorry it was a long review hope you liked it and thanks for reading.

We were a little hesitant to buy this rice cooker because of the price. We eat a decent amount of rice, but not for every meal and not every day. Still, i thought it would be nice to try one with the induction heating, and we liked the zojirushi website. Needless to say, i never knew rice could be this good :d every type of rice was amazing. It spread on the nori very easily for making sushi. Oh, and the gaba brown rice was soo good it made a boring vegetable soup taste greatif you definitely do not want to spend this much on a rice cooker, there are other options, but if you’re not sure, i say take the leap. We almost didn’t buy this one, but are now very glad we did. We originally thought the quality wasn’t going to be that much different, but it absolutely is.

Can’t say enough good things about this rice cooker. I bought this for my wife in 2008 and it has been used 3-4times a week since then without any problems. It’s easy to program with various types of rice and makes it perfectly every single time. It’s also easy to clean as the parts remove from the cooking unit easily. The nonstick coating on the actual cooker pot is very durable and only has a few superficial scratches after years of use. This product got me buying more zojirushi products and every single one has been outstanding.

This product is what it is supposed to be. It is a high-end rice cooker with a slew of good features. I have been particularly happy with it’s keep warm feature, which keeps rice warm for day without burning or getting stale like some other models i have had in the past. If i have one complaint, it’s that it seems to cook a little slower than most rice cookers. On the other hand, i haven’t had a bad batch yet, so maybe other rice cookers are rushing. I have used it to cook a number of other grains (oatmeal, quinoa, barley) and had good results. It costs a lot, but i’m getting my money’s worth.

This has replaced my mom’s cuckoo pressure cooking rice cooker that failed in two years. So now she doesn’t have to leave brown rice in water overnight. The only negative would be the price. Simlar spec’d rice cookers are at least $50 cheaper. I just hope this lasts long as our other zojirushis which has been years and still going strong.

EdgeStar 26 Bottle Dual Zone Stainless Steel Built-In Wine Cooler – /Stainless Steel – Great wine fridge for the price

I received my unit with a damaged grill. First email sent apparently had transmission problems, second email had immediate email reply, damaged replacement part was received in two days. Unit looks very nice, have not placed it in-service as of this date.

However, the top section (for reds) is small and fits only 7 bottles (5 on one shelf and 2 down the side of the controls. Manual says 8, but i don’t see how. Bottom section could hold 15 on the 3 shelves and probably another 5 on the bottom (which isn’t really a shelf, it just sits on the bottom). So 27 bottles in all, but mostly for white because bottom sections highest temp is 54f. Docked a star because of lack of red wine storage vs white/rose. Lock is nice, lighting is good. Confusing controls until you figure it out (or read the manual). Overall happy with purchase.

Works perfectly in our wet bar area.

We used this to replace our outdated trash compactor and it worked out great. Low noise and nice blue light inside to illuminate the shelving. Slide out shelves are narrow and must be handled with care. This wine fridge will not hold the larger base wine bottles. If you are looking for something small and efficient this is it.

Had this unit for a little over a year. Com and told me it was a relay starter and referred me to an on line video that shows how to replace it myself. They have no technicians they can recommend for repair. After trying to find a repair company in my area that services wine coolers with no luck, i contacted edgestar again and they did provide me the name of their warranty company so i called them and after explaining the situation they were able to assign a tech. Once the tech came out and confimred it was the relay switch, we had to order it from repairclinic. Edgestar customer service is good but the fact that most of the repairs are expected to be self completed is a turn off.

This wine cooler has performed flawlessly since day one. It is very attractive with it’s dark glass and blue lights.

  • Overall it works fine, though I do have a few minor gripes
  • Compact Wine Fridge that does the job
  • Shipping was fast and packaging was good. The cooling system works well but there is

Works great but only small bottles really fit. Not enough red wine space for me either.

Overall it works fine, though i do have a few minor gripes: – the upper section is too small. It only really holds about 5 bottles – it does not support setting the temp in either section to whatever temperature you like. Instead, the top and bottom sections only allow a specific temperature range so you are limited to the quantity of wine you can put in the refrigerator depending on the section. – it is a bit on the noisy side when it cycles on – it is a bit short (not really under the counter height). They could have added an inch to the height of the unit which would have allowed for bigger bottoms on one of the shelves.

We’ve had no issues with the operation or installation of this. Works great and holds ample bottles of wine. Relatively quiet too, which is nice.

Fits into our kitchen and space well.

Bought this to replace the broken trash compactor. I get a lot more use from the wine cooler than i ever did from the trash compactor.

Features

26 Bottle Wine Capacity Capacity based on standard Bordeaux style wine bottles with a diameter of 2.75″. To accomodate larger bottles you may remove a shelf, keep in mind this will decrease the stated bottle capacity.

Elegant Design The sleek stainless steel trim door, matching slide-out stainless steel trimmed shelves and soft LED interior lighting provide a timeless design to showcase your treasured collection. Whatever the setting, these units are sure to spark conversation about their attractive and pleasing aesthetic.

Digital Controls

One of the most important elements of a cooling system is the controls. They should be accessible, easily understood, and provide you with accurate information on the exact temperature you are attempting to achieve. The intuitive touch control and digital temperature display allow you to easily adjust and monitor the desired temperature based on your specific cooling needs.

Tinted Glass

UV rays can cause a host of problems for any wine collection. In addition to providing unwanted heat, which puts needless strain on your cooling unit, exposure to UV light can alter the chemical makeup of your wine, potentially affecting taste and maturation. The tinted glass door ensures that while your wine bottles are visible, the integrity of your wine is protected from the potential harm of harsh light and UV rays.

Shelf Bottle Arrangement

This shelf layout will allow you to achieve the maximum bottle capacity based on a ‘Typical Bordeaux’ bottle.

Great wine cooler to replace an old trash compactor. Fits pretty good in the space.

This fridge looks very nice and is very quiet. The shelves don’t slide very smoothly and seem a bit cheap. The locking feature is great since i have a toddler that is into everything. I believe the capacity of this cooler is 26 bottles, but it would be tough to squeeze that many in, imho. The top zone is quite small (maybe 5 bottles). This works for my purposes but for a serious wine collector, the small capacity may be an issue.

This unit works well; some problems with ice building up at the back when it’s humid, which is rare where i live. It replaces a trash compacter quite nicely and it is attractive; i don’t care for black or stainless steel (and it would look good with either) but using it as a built-in enough wood shelving shows for it to fit nicely in my kitchen. Under-counter, it would be nicer if it were about 3 inches taller; there’s about a 4-inch gap to cover.

Doesn’t really hold 26 regular bottles otherwise nice quite operation. Nice features,perfect for under counter use. Would like to se better shelf design.

Read many reviews on this class of product before purchasing. Packaging for shipment was excellent. Actually the fully boxed wind refrigerator was packed inside a box which was boxed again with an exterior box with protective foam corners. Do notice a bit of noise when in its high cooling cycle. But not an issue since it is near the kitchen area. Actual size was accurate and important since i had already roughed out a spot in the existing kitchen bar cabinet.

But the compressor is a little noisy.

Four (4) shelves in the lower section; Two (2) shelves in the upper section

The unit arrived in good condition. It is a stylish cooler, that fits a good amount of bottles. The reason i gave it four stars vs five is because i think it the shelves could pull out a bit farther and also because of the noise. It’s not extremely loud, but i wouldnt say it’s quiet either. If the house is quiet i can hear it in the next room. A little less noise would be preferrable, but for the price we paid compared to others it is a good value.

The cooler fit very well and was easy to set up. We’ve had it for several months and are very happy with its performance. The only negative is the bright blue temperature lights. I wish there was a way to dim them a little.

Shipping was fast and packaging was good. The cooling system works well but there is a hum sound it makes at night. Not too loud but noticeable.

We’ve had our wine fridge for about 6 months now & still love it. It replaced our trash compactor & fit perfectly. It looks great, & i love the duel temp zones. For the price, you can’t find anything else close. Update: we’ve had this for 2. 5 years & it still runs beautifully.

Cuisinart DFP-3 Handy Prep 3-Cup Food Processor – I have been looking for something like this

I absolutely love this little food processor. Its plenty big enough for food items i make for the 2 of us and wouldn’t be without the shredder attachment for making coleslaw. It easily stores in my cupboard and i would be lost without it. I highly recommend this little gem.

My mother has some trouble prepping food due to arthritis. I gave her the cuisinart dfp-3 handy prep 3 cup processor as a gift for mother’s day. She is able to process veggies for soups etc. I couldn’t be more pleased, and mom loves her handy size food processor.

Had a larger cuisinart food processor for 27 years and it worked great, until it finally broke. This smaller 3 cup version cannot compete with my 27 year old version. The blades ride up a little high and a lot of the food just sits at the bottom, just under the spinning blades, and does not get processed. I find i have to manually chop all that this food processor cannot reach, which defeats the purpose. Also, the materials especially the clear container, seem flimsier than my old one. Not sure if this is because it is a smaller, less sturdy version or if it is just not made as well as it use to be. That said, i can live with the decrease in material quality, but the fact that the blades ride high and leave a lot unprocessed is the reason for the lower rating.

I thought i made a mistake getting the small cuisinart food processor but i changed my mind when i started to use it. It’s actually perfect for food prep for two people. A bigger one would be a waste of space. I use the food processor for shredding, grating, slicing, and chopping. Makes meal prep a lot easier for me now that arthritis makes it difficult to hold knives safely. It doesn’t have a 4mm blade to cut vegetables though and i think cuisinart should make one for it. So if you want veggies to show in your homemade bean soup you have to cook the beans and the vegetables separately or the vegetables will disappear into the broth before the beans are done. I took a star away from my rating for not having the 4mm blade. However, don’t let that stop you from getting this helpful little jewel.

This ended up being too small to be worth taking out, assembling and hand washing. We’ve ended up using it once or twice, maybe, since we bought it. It’s very easy to hand chop a small amount of food. In the end, that’s what we do instead of the hassle of using this little processor. If i were to buy again, i would get a much larger processor. The processor works just fine, but has many pieces to assemble, wash and store.

I think i must have a cuisinart food processor fetish of some sort. I have six of them, spread out in 2 homes and a third one with wheels and an engine. I am partial to this 3-cup variety, useful and effective for so many things in the preparation of food in the home kitchen, when the job does not justify using one of its big brothers (or sisters, ladies). A batch of bread dough using 1 cup of flour makes two very nice hamburger buns in it, or a 14′ pizza, takes about 1 minute to make. Let the dough rise in a pamd plastic bag on the counter – no muss, no fuss – kneading not needed.

  • Fantastic
  • Great processor, too bad its discontinued
  • Great little machine!

This processor does everything i need it to. I like it’s smaller size and it’s plenty powerful. Once in awhile i need to process something in 2 batches, but my back appreciates not having to lift one of those bigger guys.

We have a larger kitchenaid food processor that is fine — no problems — it is just a bit large. I like to put in a can of tuna and ‘pulse’ it a few times. The cuisinart is great for that. I find myself using it more than the larger one. Really pleased with this product.

This cuisinart is a great little buy. It does pretty much all i want it to do (altho i miss the dough ‘blade’) in a small amount of room. We have a small kitchen and it fits quite nicely. It is so much lighter than the 11 cup one i had previously (duh), so i am comfortable using it more often. I was a little surprised at how much it spews when i use the chute. It almost needs a special container to catch it.

This food processor comes with lots of optional equipment and can be used for many different needs. It is also a good size when preparing for smaller volumes. It is easy to clean and put together too.

I bought this back in 2011, and it’s still going strong.

It works very well for chopping and dicing and i also use it to make smoothies with fruit and protein powder. It doesn’t fit a lot of stuff in it but it’s very small so it’s handy to put in a cabinet and doesn’t take up a lot of space in the dishwasher. I have a small apartment so i will not buy a larger size and just do two batches if neceessary. I’ve had this for a little over a year and use regularly.

I bought this as a gift for my parents. The difference is that this model has a lot of plastic in it’s parts. The shredding disc is made up of plastic except for tiny part that does the shredding, while the 7 cup model the entire disc is made of metal. While shredding cheese the disc will stop if you push down too hard on the cheese when your feeding it into the processor. This works alright for certain things but the 7 cup model is so much better.

Be aware that this is only a 3 cup food processor. That was all i wanted and that is what i received. It is very easy to use and cleans up extremely easily. I’m sorry to report that having used this machine for about a year, it suddenly stopped working. I suspect the motor burned out i used it once or twice a month, not very heavily. I loved it when it worked but i’m disappointed that it broke so soon. I hope other don’t share my experience. In other words, i hope i’m a glitch.

Best food processor i have ever owned – not too big, not too small, but has capacity to slice and shred forever with the attachment disk and a bowl. I love the size – fits right on my counter and is very solid, so it doesn’t slide around. I use it almost every day and consider it the best purchase i have made in a long time of small kitchen appliances.

I have been using my cuisinart 8cup model(older version) for many years and i love it, however, i don’t feel using it when i chop or slice only one onion, and large machine is not good at handling small quantity food. So i bought mini prep chopper for these small jobs and liked it for chopping and mixing but it doesn’t slice or grate. Mini prep was small and light and it was not good at heavier jobs. Then i purchased this handy prep 3cup and it was perfect solution for my purposes. With little more investment, you can have same powerful motor as the larger models and you can have many accessories for chopping, grating and slicing. It has much heavier motor base than mini preps and because of its powerful motor, it sounds quiet. Here are what it does:chopping: choop onions, parmesan cheese and other vegetables with ease. Chop chocolate from small chunks (not from whole bar, though). Slicing/grating: dfp-3 comes with unlimited slicing/grating disc with chute attachment.

Conveniently sized food processor. Functions well and is easy to clean.

Chute attachment for continuous slicing or shredding

We’ve had a larger cuisinart food processer for many years. The bowl finally broke and my wife decided that rather than buy a new bowl that she would like a smaller unit. This one stays on the kitchen counter rather than having to be put in a cubbard when not in use like our old, larger unit. This one is plenty big enough for 2 to 4 people.

Reluctantly purchased one of these to start making homemade food for my daughter. I was nervous because it seemed too small to use for making batches of food but it’s worked so well thus far. I’ve made carrots, sweet potato, banana, apple and peaches and they all come out smooth and free of chunks. If you’re wondering about quantity, i can usually fill up about three oxo tot baby blocks freezer storage containers 2-ounce, set 6, clear, more if i fill it up completely. Outside of baby food, i’ve used it to make pie fillings and chop up ingredients for recipes. I’m definitely not the most domestically inclined person in the world but this thing is super easy to use. Can’t wait to make homemade salsa and pasta sauce in it. My only issue is that it is small for things beyond batches of baby food. , if you’re looking for a good book for baby food recipes, this one (the best homemade baby food on the planet: know what goes into every bite with more than 200 of the most deliciously nutritious homemade baby food. More than 60 purees your baby will love) is great.

Just the right size for small jobs. Wonderful, especially onions. I now, buy a brick of cheese and grate my own, making it less expensive and cheaper per oz. I had a small one once before, but they quit making them until now, with this one. All the other small ones, just chop. I like the grating and slicing feature too. Nice for carrots and celery, too. The name of this appliance is dependable too.

I just love this little cuisinart food processor. After 15 years or so, the wiringin the back went bad and i didn’t want to bother having it fixed – especially once we saw amazon’s price – the lowest i’ve ever seen. I think way back when we bought the first one it was more than what i paid now. We’re a small family and don’t need a really big machine – 3 cups is more than sufficient for my needs. It’s quite powerful and with the two additional blades and the chute attachment it’s everything i need. I also like that it’s small because it’s on the counter and takes up very little space. What would have been a great feature is a retractable cord or a storage area for the cord. Because i kept pushing the machine to the wall, the wiring bent and damaged the cord. Had i not done so, it still would be working now. So, i’ll keep that in mind from now on and not push it so close against the wall.

My husband has had to consume only liquids for the past month (and we still have 3 more weeks to go) because his jaw is wired shut after having surgery done. This food processor is such an incredible blessing. I’ve been able to process soups, smoothies, juices, etc. I actually look forward to using it everyday, multiple times a day. It is extremely powerful, effective, efficient, and fun to use. The set-up and clean-up couldn’t be easier. I will continue using this food processor daily even after my husband is off the liquid diet. It’s great for quickly making salsas, slicing up food bits, or making delicious milkshakes or smoothies. I can’t wait to gift this item to friends/family as well.

Good processor but i wish i bought a bigger one. One annoying thing is that the bowl and cover only fit on one way and you will keep forgetting which way that is.

3-cup work bowl with feed tube; stainless-steel chopping-mixing blade

This is my first ever food processor. Which is a big deal for me being 25. I don’t know anyone else my age that owns one. I originally wanted a gadget that can chop and slice things up for me easier than a mandoline (i’ve used a mandoline and don’t enjoy it so much maybe because i had a scrape accident. ) so i decided to look for a food processor. It doesn’t really chop or slice that well, lol. For chopping, you’d have to be careful or it’ll turn to mush (ok ok, so it is a food processor) and for slicing, i’m just disappointed that it’s only a 2mm and i can’t find a part anywhere for anything bigger. I’ve made a cheesecake crust (crushed together ginger snaps, nuts, etc), used it to froth up egg whites, sliced apples and cucumbers, cookie dough recipes, and a few other things (i know, those are such random stuff). Just examples of what i’ve done. I plan to make more mixed concoctions like hummus. So, though this machine hasn’t satisfied my chopping and slicing needs (now i can shop for more fun gadgets on amazon. ), it’s great for everything else.

Our mini chop broke and i looked for a replacement. There is little out there that is available in the 1 1/2 cup size that we wanted. We settled for the cuisinart dfp-3. Since it was a cuisinart, we were confident of it’s quality and we weren’t disappointed. (we have had cuisinart full size food processors for many years. )although this unit was bigger than we originally wanted, it turned out to be just fine, in fact we were pleased with the added volume. It works well, is well constructed and has a chute that can be used to eject the cut food directly into a bowl. My wife ended up liking it so much we turned around and ordered a second one for the cottage.

Does everything the big one does but in smaller quantities.

I used to have a big food processor but it took up too much space. I went with this one, it’s smallish, but powerful. It has the attachment to shred and slice while shooting it out of the container so there’s not a quantity issue when using it. I can throw and onion in there and it doesn’t turn it to much. I would recommend it to anyone and it’s easy to store.

If you look on cuisinart’s company website, this model is no longer being advertised. That is too bad, because this is a really great item. Nowadays, if you want a 3 cup processor, you can only get one that chops/grinds. This model can do chopping/grinding and slicing/shredding. It comes with a disk that slices/shreds veggies and cheese. There is also the opening at the top so you can drop the food into the processor without having to stop the machine, and take off the top. Of course, since it is a small model, you must cut up the veggies and cheese to fit the opening at the top, but this is not a burden. It has a small footprint on the counter or pantry, which is a must. This is great for couples, small families, or someone who cooks a lot and needs to chop things like garlic, herbs, cheese or make sauces.

I’ve heard so much about the cuisinart food processors. Living alone and working a lot of hours, it’s sometimes easier to grab something quick (aka unhealthy) than come home and chop up vegetables, etc. So, i decided to try this small one because it was inexpensive, compared to the other models. Plus, it had slicer and shredder blades. I made spanikopita in about 15 minutes, start to oven. The spinach was chopped so quickly. I sliced a bunch of peppers and onions in just a few minutes and froze them in small packages for easy weekday cooking. Mushrooms, lemons, zucchini, etc – poof, done. It’s powerfulmy only criticism is that i wish i could order more blades. The slicing disc cuts in pretty thin slices so i wish i could order a medium thickness blade. But, the thin cut veggies cook fast which fits with my goal of quick, healthy cooking so it’s fine.

This little food processor is a replacement for one like it that i had for about thirty years. It is durable, easy to store, easy to clean, does everything i want it to and does it well. I hope to enjoy it for another thirty years.

Comes with slicing disc (2 mm); medium shredding disc

Let me start off by saying that i’ve never owned a food processor. A few weeks ago, i ordered the kitchen aid 3-cup mini-prep. It was a flimsy lightweight little machine. It only had one button–the pulse button–and it stuck so i ended up sending it back. Aside from the defect, i thought it was an okay machine at the time because i had nothing to compare it to. Fortunately, for me, when i sent it back, they were out so i couldn’t exchange it for the same one. I had to shop around all over again for a reasonably-priced, durable mini-processor. It cost $18 more but it was definitely worth itwhat a difference. This is one is super heavyweight and has all kinds of bells and whistles that the other one didn’t have.

The concept is good and it is well executed: a smaller, sturdy version of the time-saving larger food processor. Big food processors make sense because they save a tremendous amount of time doing boring and tiring routines of chopping and slicing for large quantity output. If you are just preparing for for yourself and your partner, the time saved may not be enough to make you get in the habit of using it. For just the two of us, hand slicing and chopping is fast enough and easier to clean up; plan a party however, and out it comes. And make no mistake: this little unit can do a big job easily. I suspect this unit will last 30 years or more.

It’s big enough for me (single man, living with a roommate in a small san francisco apartment), and easy to clean. If you’re wondering if this would eat a lot of counter space, it will. That’s why i put it back in the box all the time after using and cleaning. However, i think it’s worth it, if you’re looking for a simple and small food processor.

My first food processor and i am using it almost everyday. Pizza dough comes out perfect and slicing vegtables for quiche works very well (zucchini, summer squash). Making salads is quick and easy. The size is just right in taking up a small space on my counter and the price was terrific.

Cuisinart dfp-3 handy prep 3-cup food processormy old 7-cup braun food processor died and was no longer reparable. I was horrified at the huge size of most food processors now available but did’t want a mini-processor. I was a little unsure about getting a 3-cup food processor, but my fears have been allayed. It’s a real little work horse and has done everything i need. The side funnel attachment allows unlimited grating or slicing, so the 3-cup size only relates to chopping. Since herbs and nuts are a primary use i’ve had no problems. In short, i love the petite size and the decent capacity.

I used this only twice and was able to make cookie dough in seconds and mince food in seconds. It isn’t designed to do the job of the 7-cup. I read all the reviews and the ones that are disappointed with this product seem to be using it beyond its design – for very small 3-cup max jobs this is your tool. I read another review that said they love it as a beginner fp – i couldn’t agree moreit may not be worth the 50. 00 but when they sell it on special for like 35. 00 – then pick it up – that is what i did and i am happy with it. My intensions were to use the heck out of it and let my 9 yr old, who loves to cook, use it as a learning tool to become a better baker. And for that we are very pleased.

Ejector disc directs ingredients through chute attachment

I bought this in february and the motor just died on my while making peanut butter. Not overheated or anything, just plain died.

I have been using one of these for at least ten years. I did have to replace the post that the cutters fit onto but it works perfectly even though i put it through pretty hard tasks. I bought this to replace my mom’s and kept her old one for replacement parts. I have thought about ungrading to a full size food processor but then decide that this model does what i want 90% of the time and if my project is too much for one processing, i just do several fillings.

I’ve been using this food processor every day (sometimes multiple times per day) for the past 2+ years. It’s handled everything i need it to, including chopping onions, blending pie crusts, making smoothies, shredding carrots, and blending hummus. No loss of power or function with continuous use. The bowl and the lid have gone through the dishwasher countless times and have held up exceptionally well, although the lock on the lid has developed a crack and is close to breaking off. Replacement parts are easy to come by on amazon (i’ve purchased a few replacements for lost blades). Can’t imagine my life without it.

I bought this for my brother who recently started cooking. He was on the fence about this purchase, not really sure if he needed it. Turned out that he was very happy with his decision to get it because it just makes it so much easier and faster to cook. He uses it to chop onions and tomatoes mainly.

Love the price and the size of the unit. I just feel cuisinart brought the quality a little too low for the price. I would have preferred to pay another $25 for better quality. Pros:-size, price, comes with chute(which i have not tried yet)cons:-uneven chopping of veggies. This is the biggest problem. Worked best by chopping veggies separate. Also need to stop and mix the veggies or the bottom ones are pulverized and top ones not going to bottom. -limitation of 1 cup at a time.

Only issue (and its probably my fault) is that the plastic warped slightly when put in the dishwasher so now when i make salsa the liquid leaks sometimes. This is for small jobs though. If youre cooking for more than 2 people you should probably size up.

I have been looking for something like this for doing small jobs so when i seen this on amazon i thought this would be perfect. It will take up a small amount of space plus i will be able to do a lot of things with this and to use to prepare for meals. I am glad i found this on amazon. I had a small 1 1/ 2 size from black and decker that you cannot find anymore with the shredder and chopper that i used quite a bit so this size will be the closes to that one. It sure cuts down on time to do things.

My cuisinart dfp-3 handy prep 3-cup food processor arrived in only 5 days, (standard/free) thanks to amazon’s superior shipping service. I’m single, but enjoy having guests over for dinner, and decided that the 3 cup processor would work for me. I took my time and read the instructions cover-to-cover prior to actually using it for the first time, and i feel certain that is the key to avoiding many of the mishaps (such as over processing) that other reviewers complained of. This machine is such a joy to use that i found myself at the local farmers market today, just to buy veggies to use in it. (i’m even trying some for the first time ever, which leads me to believe that it’s a healthy influence on my eating habits. Additionally, i was surprised as to how quiet and easy to clean it is. I’m certain that i will use this machine for years to come. Cuisinart is one of those companies that stands out amongst the others with product quality, design, and warranties -i’m a firm believer in the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ and this is a perfect example.

I just grated up 3 blocks of cheese today with my fantastic new food processor. Awesome :)since i live on my own, this is the perfect size for my needs. I love that it comes with slicing and grating attachments, as well as a continuous feed chute. Pre-grated cheese actually has some carbs in it, and since i’m on a low-carb diet, i prefer to shred my own cheese and this machine makes that incredibly simple. I plan on making mayonnaise next, and the feed pusher thingy even has a small hole in the bottom so you can fill it up with oil and have it drizzle into your yolk mixture in a thin, steady stream. All the parts are easily washable by hand. Also, i love that this machine is actually relatively quiet – especially compared to my blender. :pthis makes an awesome first food processor since it blends the functionality of more expensive models with the handy size and more wallet-friendly price of entry-level models.

I have owned 3 of the biggest cuisinart processors over the last 35 years, and 2 of the mini-preps. This is the handiest by far. The big ones don’t work well for small jobs and the mini-preps are almost useless. This little jewel handles small jobs beautifully. It will emulsify salad dressings like nothing else and grate or shred small quantities of cheese perfectly. I also love it for mincing/pureeing fresh garlic, rosemary, and other ingredients for a fast, fresh dry rub. Another plus: it takes up very little space on the counter or in the dishwasher. When my family lived at home, i loved the large ones. Now this small one fits my lifestyle.

I bought a little pro, which is the same as dfp-3, for my mother in law in 1987 and i inherited it in 1992. It is a very good and high quality machine. I have given it heavy use using the chute to grate apples for canning sauce. Over the years at least a ton of apples have gone through the chute, 240 this year alone. I have replaced it because of a little oil leakage and feared it was dying and not wanting to be without it. The dfp-3, being exactly the same, is as good as the old and i was delighted it was still available. This is the only food processor i have and find it all that is needed for two people.
