Waring WPB80R Professional Bar Blender – excellent, made in the usa

My husband loves to make smoothies, so i got this blender especially for him, and it’s perfect. He calls it his ‘guy blender’ because it has a powerful (and loud) motor without a lot of fussy settings like ‘chop’ or ‘puree. ‘ it does just one thing but does it really well. Also, my guy is not into details like ‘add liquids first,’ and he has little patience for things that are hard to clean. So the fact that he’s been using it for months without burning the motor out or getting anything stuck to the blades says a lot about how solidly built and easy to use this blender is.

This blender seems to be working well so far. My only complaint, and i don’t know if it is just the blender we received, is that the twist for the cap is actually backwards (so left does not twist off and right does not tighten instead it’s the other way around). This leads to a lot of confusion when trying to take it apart to clean.

This blender is kind of cheap and does not have the power i was expecting. Will not recommend this item.

I been using mine since i got it 4 yrs ago. Only issue is that over time it starts leaking in the bottom and it makes a bit of a mess.

This is an excellent product. We use it all the time and it works great.

Only problem is that i did not read that it came with plastic jar. Other than that its a great deal.

  • Great Value, Great Blender
  • Lives up to my expectations for a Waring.
  • This is by far the best blender that I have ever owned

This warpro is great for families who make smoothies a whole lot. I like that its pretty heavy duty and we haven’t burnt it out.

I had a different waring blender for more years than i can remember. It had a plastic body and membrane buttons with an ice crushing mode. That blender made me believe that i would prefer waring for a very long time. It died only because the plastic body eventually gave up the ghost (we’re talking >10 years) and the motor mounts broke. That ended up messing with the bearings and stuff. With no hesitation i went to get another one. I was a bit skeptical about the two mode switch, but then on the other model we mostly used the pulse and didn’t really care that much about having a lot of speed choices. I see others do not care for the plastic container, but i have no issues with it, and the shape is a key part of why it works so well.

This is–in my opinion–the best inexpensive blender on the market. I eat mostly fruit and it makes the creamiest, dreamiest smoothies. For breakfast i blend bananas, oranges, water and a touch of vit c—for a dreamcicle tasting delight. I am very hard on it too–three to four uses a day–and with a squaretrade warranty added—all is covered.

To be clear, i bought this blender from target, which had the glass container version. As of this review, there isn’t an equivalent item on amazon, so i am putting my review here. The biggest performance concern is typically the motor, blades, and assembly, so i hope others don’t mind this review. After three months of use, it’s still great. I mainly make green tea smoothies using matcha, soy milk, and many half oval-shaped ice. Each piece of ice is about 2 inches long. This blender works great for that purpose. In the beginning, i had the safety (clutch?) mechanism kick in and disconnect the motor from the blade fairly often. This wasn’t inconvenient, though, since it let me know when to shake the contents to get more of the ice to sink to the bottom. After about 2 months of use (i.

I was hesitant to purchase this model based upon some previous reviews, but finally chose it after researching many different models and other companies, mainly because the blender jar is made of plastic and the power level produced by this blender model. Some reviews stated that the blender jar does not sit on the blender correctly and may be unstable, i have not found that to be the case. This is by far the best blender that i have ever owned, i’m sure that there are better blenders out there, but for the price, this blender suited my needs perfectly. I utilize my blender to make fruit smoothies and blended ice drinks.

Flimsy lid and jar difficult to keep in place in use, have to hold it at the top.

The liquid holder is plastic, not glass as i thought it was. The plastic is a harder plastic so it should hold up. Mixed up a drink which included some ice and frozen banana with no problem. Just wished the container part was glass.

This blender proves there is no need to have 14 different speeds to achieve great results. The simple switch operates the blender at one of two speeds. Primary use at this time is to create smoothies, but i am confident it would perform equally well for other purposes. I purchased this blender because it is made in the usa and also because it had good reviews. Consider this another two thumbs up.

Great blender simple to use.

This blender is mostly used for smoothies and it has no trouble powering through ice, carrots, frozen fruit, fresh apples, etc. Brand (we also have their professional waffle maker) because their products are simple and easy to use (no frills) and they work well. For instance, most blenders would have a billion settings like ‘puree’, ‘crush’, etc. And have 5 different speeds. This blender has three settings: ‘hi’, ‘lo’, and ‘off’ and that’s enough to do the job wonderfully. The only thing i would change about this blender is to make the pitcher glass vs. Plastic, but really, it’s not a big deal in the larger scheme of things.

The need:i was looking for a blender to replace a basic kitchen blender that i had owned for 15 or so years. The primary use of the blender is to make protein shakes that contain some frozen ingredients. Features that attracted me:• power• simplicity• warranty• pricelet’s blend:the blender is loud but not annoyingly so. Because it can power through frozen ingredients very quickly the motor noise is more like loud white noise (consistent) than my old blender was when it struggled with those ingredients. You have to hold the jar from the top when blending, which i don’t mind so much. Also, it means that i can feel it when the blender is done chopping through the more solid items in a given mix. My old blender needed 3 to 4 minutes for a good smoothie. In this one 30 seconds on low and another 20 on high does the trick – awesomethe instructions are really clear as to, for example, the order in which to add ingredients. Since this is designed for bars there is very detailed information about ice. You should know:the instructions say not to place the plastic jar in the dishwasher.

500-watt professional-quality bar blender with a heavy-duty metal base

This does a fantastic job of blending ice for drinks etc. My main concern is that the container base secures tightly to the motor but not the the container itsself. Twice now resulting in spills. I wouldn’t particularly encourage anyone to buy this item. I got mine free through a rewards program at work and i kinda regret using my points balance on this.

Great product this was purchased for my son loves it. I have had one for 20 years in yellow love itdoes everything great.

Heavy duty and made in the good ol usa. Hard to find anything made here anymore.

Very pretty, but lightweight. . I thought the container would be glass, but it’s plastic. Sent it back as the inside had something loose that rattled.

This is my 5th blender in 10 years. I had actually given up on blenders since they always burned up after a few frozen drinks. A friend suggested a waring i am impressed. I have made frozen drinks several times and it works great. Only 1 complaint, it works a little too good, if you use level 2 for more than a few seconds your ice will be gone.

NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop : All came out great. Heated it at 375

My first usage of the grill was a disaster. Although i tried to season with oil, everything stuck and i haven’t been able to get the char cleaned off without scrapping with a knife.

Thought i would only use this nuwave in the house but we took it camping with the gridle top and it was great for burgers, chicken and bacon. We were happy to have found it.

Nuwave precision induction cast iron grill.

Does a great job of grilling. Steaks come out perfect and juicy. This is our favorite accessory for our nuwave.

  • Great cooking – lousy design

NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop + 1.5 Quart Stainless Steel Nonstick Saucepan with Lid

Grill cooks well but is hard to clean. I really like my nuwave induction cooktops. I seldom use the electric range anymore. This grill works well with the original pic2 but is a bit small for the larger cooktops. I’ve found it harder to clean, though, than traditional non-coated cast iron. The drip tray works well, but on the larger cooktop it means a reduced cooking area.

We use this once in a while for burgers and such and i am glad that i bought this.

Works very well with the nuwave system. Not totally non-stick, but cooking spray helped.

A great accessory to my precision cook top i have used it several times to grill a steay right at the table handy dandy.

I would like the option to not use the plastic grease catcher.

My wife was very pleased to get this for her nuwave grill.

Steak had all of the grill marks as if done on a pit. Meat was tender and cooked evenly along with a great taste. Drip pan fits well and works as described by nuwave.

Nice accessory/complement to the pic. I have grilled meat and veggies and everything turns out great.

I ordered this for my nuwave pic and works great, it was packaged well and arrived on time, thank you.

Exactly what i was looking for.

If you are eating by our self this is great.

This grills my steak so nice. The vegetables are also coming out so nice. The only problem is cleaning the grill after use. For some reason i do not like using soap on the grill, so i have to make sure i have gotten all the very small artifact off the grill.

Small but saves firing uo & cleaning the barbeque.

I do like the nu wave grill but it’s not without its faults. Number one is the drip catcher is out of shape to be able to fit properly under the drip hole. Number two is there are no ‘how to season’ directions and one would assume it’s pre-seasoned?. I sprayed canola oil before cooking a couple pork chops and had some sticking. I used hot water and a stiff brush like i use on my cast iron skillet and it cleaned up fine, so not a big problem there. I think it is over priced as i could have bought a cast iron grill pan for less then $20 and if i had it to do over again, that’s what i would do. Other then price, i’m happy with how it fits my nu wave gold perfectly and easier to store then a cast iron grill pan as it lays flat. You can stand it on its edge and take-up very little space. The drip catcher idea would be great if they made a better drip catcher. Nifty need to go back to the drawing board for that idea to work properly.

Great but the drip cup is a little awkward.

Love this grill that fits nicely on my nuwave induction cooktop.

Kind of pricey but it’s nice to be able to grill inside when it’s too hot or raining out.

Works great on nu wave cooktop.

KitchenAid KHM312WH 3-Speed Hand Mixer – : Five Stars

Highly rated by cooks illustrated.

Don’t go out any buy yourself the big kitchenaid mixer. This one does everything you need it to, doesn’t take as much room, and doesn’t require an army to lift.

KitchenAid KHM312WH 3-Speed Hand Mixer – White

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Powerful DC Motor
  • 3 mixing speeds
  • Beater ejection button
  • Lockable swivel cord
  • Includes 2 Stainless steel Turbo Beater accessories
  • 1 Year Warranty

Use it often when the task is easier than using my big kitchenaid mixer.

Tried to make cookies with this. I was afraid to break it but it didn’t. The speed was fast though but i don’t mind since i don’t bake that often.

Kitchenaid has, i think, about four different variants of this mixer, each at different price points, and with different features (speed, accessories, etc. I guess the not-so-secret secret is that they are all the same model – the same motor, and a similar mould – but with some hardware caps put in place. As a consequence, this cheapest model will perform just as great as the more expensive one. So if you are looking for a reliable, small, convenient mixer, search no more. If you need to whisk eggs, the speed of this mixer is completely appropriate (unlike what is implied to make you want to buy the more expensive models), and you simply need to graph the kitchenaid khmpw whisking accessory. Bought this a year ago, and it is still working fine, and never have i thought that i needed to trade up.

KitchenAid KHM312WH 3-Speed Hand Mixer – White : I got this to replace my old hand mixer that is more than 30 years old, made in the usa. We’ll see how this one holds up. I do like the beaters and the speeds. Have made a two layer chocolate cake w/chocolate icing (from scratch) and a chocolate cream pie, so far.

Has a nice slow first setting so things don’t fly all over the place when you first turn it on. It does a good job for a basic mixer. I don’t think it would be good for tough or sustained use like my heavier-duty mixer does but that more powerful oster is really fast on the low setting which is what i wanted to accomplish by buying this one. I just wanted a simple slower mixer and this one works very well.

Seems to be working pretty good – but not near as strong as my old one :(.

We’re great fans of kitchenaid appliances and also own a stand mixer and food processor from kitchenaid. We’ve owned this mixer for at least 5 years. The mixer is nicely designed, with a simple shape that is easy to clean and will not yellow with age. We use the mixer most often for beating egg whites and whipping cream. The mixer is very fast at these tasks because of the design of the beaters and the speed of the motor. It feels very solid in your hand, and does not rattle and shimmy like other mixers. It is a bit heavy, but that is probably part of the reason it feels so smooth when it operates. We have used this mixer for cake batters, but not for heavier jobs like cookie dough (we use the stand mixer for that). If you are looking for something that can replace a stand mixer, you should probably pay a little more and get the 9-speed model. Our mixer broke when we put it into a bowl that was too narrow at the bottom.

Features i like: simplicity of button system. The cord lock in that keeps the cord out of your way when using the mixer. Limitation not so good: the mixer is not as powerful as many, and thus bogs down when you are trying to blend really thick, dense recipes.

Not sure why kitchenaid chose to stop making the 3 speed hand mixer. I’ve had 3 in the the 35yrs i’ve been married – hope kithenaid changes their minds andstarts making them again.

I have owned this for about 2 years. Struggles through cookie dough. The end of the beater broke off at the weld site.

Powerful and gets the job done well.

I was just looking for a simple and reliable mixer and after reading the previously written reviews decided on this mixer. Its not fancy but as you would expect with the kitchen aid name, it is a great little mixer.

Great for little details while baking. Works as promised and haven’t had any problems with this product.

Arrived in good condition, was as advertised, works good.

I am on my second classic 3 mixer. The mixer is great for handling all of my (many) baking chores. However, in both cases, the beaters broke before the motor died. If anyone has a set of beaters which has outlasted the mixer, i’d like to talk to you.

Just a great reliable mixer for most of mixing. My favorite and have gifted several over the years and always a favorite.

She had an identical one that broke after 15 years of loving baking.

This mixer is just what i needed in my small kitchen. I bake all the time and i have always dreamed of getting a big, red counter top kitchenmaid mixer, but that’s just not in my budget and i have nowhere to store it. I have limited counter space and storage. Regarding quality of use, this handheld mixer works like a charm. The last batch of pumpkin bread, i used this lightweight hand mixer to blend all the ingredients one by one. It worked great- no splatters, mixed flour evenly, quiet motor, easy to clean. The rounded edges and lack of small crevices makes it easy to wipe down. I like the simplicity of the machine- there are only three speeds and one button to release the tools. I wish it came with the large whisk, but i’ll have to buy it separately. It works well with thicker batters too.

For a lower cost, no frills option, this is a good choice. I have the turbo 7 speed as well and the main difference is the amount of speeds. When mixing on the 7 speed, i always flipped up through the settings and back and never really stayed on one setting. This one here has 3 and that really is all you need for basic things. As with the 7 speed, the body does feel light weight and that gave me a bad first impression when i first got the 7 speed a few years ago. It has proven to not be an issue though because it is still going strong and as good as the first use. It is rather nice to have the light weight body anyway, in terms of handling it etc. The beaters are thin and i wasn’t sure how i’d like that, at first. They are also light weight and did not feel like heavy duty construction. Again, though, they’ve proven to be just fine and work very well.

I have been a kitchenaid user for many years. They were a company still making products in the usa. Now even though their website says they are american made i find it not to be true. I purchased a new 5 speed hand mixer at kohl’s yesterday. On the back it has a sticker that says st. That is where their company headquarters is i guess. On the bottom of white mixer etched in white (probably so it is hard to read) it says ‘made in china’. Now i am trying to find a decent product by another company that might be made in the usa.
