ProChef PU35 Professional Stainless Steel 35 Cup Insulated Hot Water Urn – This is great, and even works in our Denver high altitude

I can’t hear it, makes no noise whatsoever. I have to look at the switch to see if it’s on or off :)the inside is smooth metal all around, not like some percolators have that little well at the bottom that is always getting rusty and dirty and is impossible to clean. Looks like it will be really easy to clean. I also like that the nozzle is high enough to be used with mugs – some other manufacturers think we’re all drinking out of dainty teacups, or else having tea parties with doll-sized china. I’ve only had it for a few weeks, so can’t comment on its durability, but so far, am absolutely thrilled with it.

Exactly what i expected from the description.

This water boiler works well, it keeps the water hot enough to make decent tea or coffee (about 195 degrees). I need to clean it of scale (because of hard water) about every month or so. The one major defect is that the plastic of the handles are not designed for the heat and, over the year i have had the device, have deteriorated. First they allowed condensate to ooze down the outside and then the screws that hold the handles on had no where to grip. I wrote to the manufacturer asking if i could purchase new handles but never received an answer. However, the handles are not absolutely necessary for the device to operate properly.

After 2 years the handles crumbled.

Heats the water quickly and it stays hot for a long time.

Fast shipping, great service, very satisfied.

  • Amazing hot water urn
  • Five Stars
  • This is great, and even works in our Denver high altitude

Hot enough to make great cups of tea :).

We used it this christmas to serve apple cider. It heats quickly and kept cider warm for hours. It doesn’t burn the content and is easy to clean.

I love this product i don’t have to wait any more for my water to boil. I have hot water on demand all the time now.

We were very happy with this urn. The water is piping hot, easy to dispense. Like the yt mode allows you to add water.

Light, functional and easy to use.

Works very well, love the size. Fits very well, doesn’t take up too much space and serves the needs.

This is great, and even works in our denver high altitude. If you have it on for over 2 days, there will be some loss, but so far, it has not been a problem. The water is really hot, not like some other products that make it just hotter than warm.

The claim of 35 cups – i don’t know what size cups they are using but it is not 8oz. As others have pointed out, after a few days significant amount of water has evaporated.

We bought this for an event with a few dozen people and this piece worked great. We’ve had other urns where the water is dispensing at a barely warm temperature. This piece dispensed water almost as hot as if it had just been boiled on the stove top. Its dispensing mechanism is great and it looks really sleek.

Very good sturdy nice stainless steel urn, with some concerns, 1. The cover is not sealed & has a small hole, now, the water it continuously lightly boiling which results is the water evaporates. (& auto shut off when empty)2. The double wall are really thin & not insulated, as results, the outside walls is very hot.

Comments from buyers

“Bring on the frosting
, but I’m so glad I got this
, OUTSTANDING !!!!!!!!!!!!

This came without an outer shipping box which almost ruined a christmas surprise. It’s what you’d expect from a one trick pony. We followed the recipe in the enclosed book and they were very dry even with following the directions. The cupcakes are smaller than average.

I had fun cooking with this product.

Our 11 year and 8 year old girls enjoy making a batches of cupcakes with maker. Easy cleanup and not having to turn on the oven are a great plus.

I was surprised that my babycakes maker was not what i expected. The babycakes people solved my questions promptly. I plan to make these babycakes with my 2 grandsons because they really like chocolate cake and there’s more than chocolate cake recipes babycakes pop maker: cp-94lv – purple, makes 12 cake pop’sin the babycakes mini cupcake cook book.

My 10 year old daughter loves it and has used it many times. We also got the babycakes recipe book and we made mini tostadas. The cupcake maker is easy to use and clean and i highly recommend it.

This was a gift for my 9 year old for christmas. She loves iti don’t feel that all the cupcakes cooked evenly in it but it wasn’t a huge deal. For a quick snack it is perfect. Just take it out of the box and it’s ready to go.

This was a gift for my 8 yr old granddaughter who enjoys cupcakes. This darling cupcake maker is safe for her to use and they come out great. She’s happy with the purple machine and the fact that they are ‘mini’.

Honestly i got this as a gift i use it to make pancakes cupcakes mini pies cornbread sometimes eggs its sooo great i would get more things from them the best thing ive put in my kitchen in a while.

This is a xmas gift for my youngest niece who is getting into the baking thing. Thought this is better than having to turn on the oven. Won’t know how it performs until she tries it.

Great mini cupcake maker for the little kids.

I bought this locally in the purple color, and have used it three times now. I love not having to turn on the oven during the summer to make cupcakes, and i also love how easy this is to useit does make mini-cupcakes, and so just be aware that this takes a lot more time to use than just putting them in the oven. That being said, it’s fun to make snack-size cupcakes. I’ve been making all my cupcakes in the included liners, which means that clean-up is a breeze. Also, i got this on sale for about fifteen dollars. If it helps anyone else, i also wanted to add that i’ve been making vegan cupcakes, using the book vegan cupcakes take over the world: 75 dairy-free recipes for cupcakes that rule. I was worried that the lack of dairy and eggs would cause problems, but the three recipes i’ve made have all been delicious.

Very easy and fun item to use. My daughter and i used it to make mini-muffins using the martha white blueberry muffins pouch found in the baking section of our local grocery store. So easy to make and clean up was a breeze. This item can get very hot so make sure to supervise/help your young daughter / son to not get burned. All in all a fun and easy item to own.

It takes a loooong time to use up a box of cake mix in batches of 6 mini cupcakes. Purchased as gift for a 10 year old girl. 10 year olds don’t have the best cake batter aim. The paper baking cups seem to be a non-standard size. Purchased the smaller baking cups from the local grocery store. They work, but it’s not a snug fit. So much easier to just bake in the oven, but you miss out on the novelty of doing the activity with a child.

This is sooooo cute and it works just fine. I saw the purple and fell in love. But it is quite efficient and gives great cupcakes and muffin. Much easier than firing up the oven. Great idea that works terrific for me.

I didn’t know if i should get yet another kitchen toy, i mean tool, but i’m so glad i got this. It is really fun and fast to make cupcakes or whatever. I make mini cornbread in there using jiffy mix and they turn out great.

Can’t really review this as it was given as a gift.

Bought for my granddaughter and she loves it.

CRAFTEA Ultimate Electric Tea & Chai Maker : Four Stars

Love, love, love this product since nov. ‘18 when wife gifted me for 69th bd. Made own chai for 20+ years and this is the best, easiest, fastest. Make chai nearly every day as i make wife’s pour over coffee. Last couple times has overflowed for ?. Cannot find a way to contact company that works and need help asap.

This is a great new kitchen gadget that makes perfect chais, teas, and lattes. I love that it’s dishwasher safe.

After our trip to india i was hooked on masala chai. I leaned how to make it on the stove, but i hated the clean up and how attentive i had to be during the process. After i had done it a few months i wanted to find a machine just like this, and as far as i know this is the only one. It’s a great product and the customer service is extraordinary. This summer i’ve been making purea tea with it for ice tea, infusing a little mint.

But why the stirrer keeps jamming??.I might return so please let me know how to fix that??.

  • TEArrific!
  • Great tea maker!
  • Great Strong Chai

I bought this (but not on amazon) when it was first introduced, shortly after it won the best product award at the world tea expo in california. Since it was a brand new product there wasn’t much in the way of reviews. Even though they had won the tea expo award i felt i needed to do some due diligence before buying so i emailed and then called the company and ended up speaking with the founder who made me very comfortable purchasing. I am really glad i went to that effort because i just love this product. I’ll start by saying this is a whole new product category. It makes fantastic and foolproof chai teas and tea infusions with no risk of over-boiling. It’s very easy to use but since it’s programmable it’s also very versatile (ie, i’m going to have fun experimenting using it to make things it was never intended to make). The user manual and recipe guides are available online so you can check check them out. The machine itself is very well designed and the build quality is excellent. A few months after i bought my machine out of the blue the company sent me an updated stirrer attachment since they had improved it to be more silent – i was impressed because how many companies would do that?.

I have been using this for two years up north and just bought a second one for florida.

If you’re into making teas then i’d recommend these. I’m lazy tho so cleaning can be a chore so for those lazy bugs be prepared. But if you’re into making good tea and the clean up part doesn’t bother you then you’d enjoy this. I mean it would have been better if they had a clever way of screening the tea leaves and making it easy to dispose of.

For years i have tried to find a device for my wife to make chai at home. The craftea ultimate has been her answer. Would get higher rating but stirrer is always jamming. However, in other regards it is great and is used every day.

Update 8-2-2018 ~ still going strong. Love this tea makerlove this and use it almost every day. It is a great product but i do have suggestions for the next iteration. The strainer and lid make the pot hard to clean. You can’t just wash it out and turn it upside down in the drain rack as the lid gets in the way. The strainer always has to be removed to make sure it’s clean. I would rather see no lid and no strainer. Just smooth stainless steel. I would also like to see an extra three programmable buttons for one button operation. I normally just dump all items in at one time, and find it annoying to have to press the start button more than once (yes i am lazy).

So far i’ve made many kinds of chai, golden milk with turmeric, and all sorts of teas. It is a creativity inspiration. And no, i don’t work for the company that made this.

It took me two or three times to get the ingredient proportions right, once i did i would not go back to the stove. The spinning action gets more flavor out of the tea and mint so i could use less. Also, you can smell the fresh ingredients like mint when making chai and lemon for herbal infusions. A great product for being always on the go.

I was raised on chai tea, drinking it twice a day with authentic ingredients – loose tea, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, sugar and whole milk. It was a process to make and quite a ritual in our home. Even in 100 degrees weather, we were sipping on our chai. Needless to say, i became addicted at a young age. When i’m at work, i need my afternoon chai fix. I’ve tried electric kettles with different flavored tea bags, starbucks chai latte (gross) and other overly-sweet variations of chai tea from different coffee shops to no avail. I decided to give craftea a try and i’m so glad i did. It really makes authentic chai tea with ease and speed, and the chai is piping hot – the way it should be. I place all the ingredients together – water, loose tea, chai spices, sugar and milk, hit the button and within 10 minutes it’s done.

You can get a great strong chai after a long brew (about 10 mins from start to finish). Compared to milk frothers and similar products, this product produces the strongest tea. The founder of the company was very helpful and responsive as he helped solve a minor issue i had. The price of the product is a bit high. However, the utility and the responsiveness of the founder more than make up for it. Highly recommended if you make chai on a daily basis. It’s much easier to use this product daily than make chai on the stovetop. The consistency of the chai is quite predictable and addictive. I am using this machine twice a day at this point.

I’ve been a chai-drinker for about 15 years. I drink it every single day. The thick, strong, nice-colored, not-too-milky indian chai. I was looking at coffee machines on amazon that can make chai. My head was essentially like, “you’re looking for a machine that can make chai?. Haha, in your dreams, good luck. ”i knew it was too good to be true but i was browsing amazon because i’m foolishly optimistic and i had time to kill. But guess what, i came across this machine and it was like the angels opened up the skies and rained all their shiny luck on me. I’ve been using this machine every day for about three months and i hope these points can help you guys. It does make good indian tea. It’s not overly watery or milky, it’s strong, it has the right color, it tastes amazing. I was skeptical but it really does a good job. If your chai isn’t tasting the way you want it to, try tweaking your chai recipe. The stirrer: this is a small black piece inside the machine that can be taken out. When i first got the machine, i got the error message which said the stirrer isn’t inserted properly and the machine used to stop working. I figured out that to insert the stirrer properly, you need to click it down. It should make a short ‘click’ sound. What i was doing was simply putting it in place.

I had the teavana automated brewer for years and enjoyed it, but when i received the craftea as a gift i was blown away. I can make chai, infuse fruits and herbs into my tea and make my (now) favorite, the green tea latte. There’s also still the simple setting of hot water too for when i’m lazy and just want to use bags. It’s also smaller than the automated kettle so it takes up less counter space in my tiny kitchen.

I bought the machine in july. I use it almost daily to make delicious chai. I love experimenting with different spices. Every night i put the water, spices, tea and sweetener into the pitcher. In the morning, i pour in the creamer and use custom chai setting to create. I wait about 10 minutes and have at least two cups of chai. Initially, i was hesitant due to price but machine pays for itself in less than two months if you calculate cost of starbucks chai i was buying every morning. I had also tried using coffee machines to make chai but just couldn’t get results i wanted. Love the convenience of having it at home.

A delightful product – fun to use.

I have tried organic herbal teas, black teas, oolong and green teas and chai. I have used thermometers, timers and special equipment but never made a tea that tasted good. I heard of people spending $200 for a machine and laughed at them. All you need to do is boil water. Was i ever wrongi decided to buy this machine as a final attempt to make tea that i could enjoy. I have never in my life enjoyed one cup of tea. So i had no great expectations from this machine. From the first cup of tea, i was amazed that tea could taste like this.

Just got this yesterday and already love it. . I bought it for chai but now realize that won’t be the only tea i will use it for.

This is the best tea maker in the market without doubt. Tea making is super easy and creates no mess.

A friend recommended this for me as i love my chai tea. I am extremely pleased with it and have not used my kettle since, (2 months). The tea is steeped and blended perfectly, and tastes so much better, both custom and quick chai. I have yet to try green tea, herbal teas, and the chinese tea i brought back from asia, it is easy to clean too, bonus.

I have been making chai every morning for years. This tea maker allows me to get my kids ready for school without having to stand close to the boiling chai to watch for boil overs. The chai taste just like it does when i make it on the stove top but it’s so much easier. The jug is also very easy to clean. I had an issue with the tea maker when it first arrived but craftea customer service remedied the problem quickly.

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.

Amazon Renewed FoodSaver 4420 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealing System : It shipped fast and the receiver loved it. Having seen some of the results from

I have only used it a few times, but it is really good at drawing down the air in the package and sealing.

Also interferes with the kitchen radio. So we have to unplug it when we are not using it.

Needed one of these for a long time. Good price, and fast shipping.

It works beautifully and i can even reseal potato chips bags. I have to watch it because sometimes it back out the air too tightly but i just hit seal as soon as i see it get too tight. Love the aytachment, although it’s sometimes touch and go with the zip lock bags. I use it to save leftovers, separate large meat packages and anything else i can think of keeping g freshbought my daughter one for xmas and she loves it too.

  • A great money saver
  • Love this gadget.
  • Love this, works great although it does have a

FoodSaver 4420 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealing System, Food Sealer Combo with Fresh Saver Built-in Retractable Handheld Sealer, Automatic Vacuum & Sealing, w/ Starter Kit (Certified Refurbished)

Love this, works great although it does have a big dent in the front and a lot of scratching. Description say normal wear and tear, mine looks like it was dropped and abused.

The first one lasted 8 years. Still working just running slower. So glad we upgraded to the new one. More features so more savings. The old one we saved over $1500 a year. Hopefully we will exceed that.

Been using it like crazy since i got it two weeks ago.

Just bought one this week and i love it, works great, thank you foodsaver .

Def get this product if you are questioning purchasing it. I use the attachment cord with the wide mouth mason jar sealer to keep my coffee/cereal/dry goods all fresh. You can use the marinade setting to speed up the process and get the flavor into the meat.

It shipped fast and the receiver loved it. Having seen some of the results from vacuum sealer i will be looking to purchase this again for myself.

I absolutely love this thing. I have been vacuum sealing just about everything. It’s also super nice how you can vacuum seal chip bags and cereal bags. The vacuum works great majority of the time, it will occasionally not vacuum chip/cereal brand bags, it will still seal them though. My only problem with it is how loud and long the vacuum process is. Example: if someone is talking to you while you are vacuum sealing something you will not be able to hear one word for the entire 30 seconds to a minute and a half of the process. I also have not found a use for the vacuum hand tool yet or even really understand what it is for. It looks very nice and it is taller and slimmer than the older models.

Easy tos use and keeps the food we put in the freezer fresh. We often by food in larger quantities. Using the custom bag roll i can easily cut the length of bag i need, seal it, add the items and vacuum seal that end. The automatic shutoff takes the guess work out of the process. We are buying the bulk roll of bags instead of the product bags since it us so easy to use.

Margaritaville Mixed Drink Maker – So far it has been great

Bought this for our home parties – everyone loved it – highly recommend. Buy the travel bag and share the fun.

The mixer pours a really nice drink with lots of options. Carrying case is great because everyone asks us to bring it over. It’s the hit of all the parties. Drawbacks are cleaning the inside, & purging the left over mixers & liqueur. But over all it’s a nice addition for summer parties.

Great machine and great drinks. Here are the specifications for the Margaritaville Mixed Drink Maker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Now your party guests can be their own bartender with the margaritaville mixed drink maker featuring 48 recipe options created by margaritaville bartenders.
  • At the press of a button, watch drink recipes come to life as this, first-of-its-kind innovation dispenses perfectly proportioned cocktails fast
  • Press the i feel lucky button and watch the digital display spin, it lands on a random drink for amusing interaction and entertaining fun anytime
  • And it’s no trouble to make a double, just press down once on the drink strength switch and out comes a strong pour
  • Set up is a breeze, just add your choice of liquor (rum, vodka or tequila) and select mixers into the four containers, the machine knows what to do from there to serve up delicious mixed drinks
  • 4 color-coded, 54 oz. liquid tanks with matching caps, drip tray & cover included
  • Dispenses 8-ounce drinks

It is a hit anywhere we take it. . Easy to use easy to clean. Add the 2 extra alcohol bottles with it, i wish we would have.

This mixed drink maker is always a hit @ parties and social events. The virtual bartender is always a source of interesting conversation.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Meet Me At The Drink Mixer (my version of the T-pain song)
  • It is a great adult toy
  • So far it has been great

We actually had two of them going with a different alcohol in each. The clean up was pretty easy. The amount of alcohol is perfect. You can choose to add more with the ‘make it stronger’ button.

The only complaint i have is that it does not chill the liquid before pouring it. But all you really have to do is put the containers in the refridgerator before you guests or before you are ready to drink.

Ok parrot heads, this is a must. When your out by the pool, sitting under your grass roof tiki bar trying to decide what to sip on,look no further. All the concoctions of tropical wonders are at your finger tips. You will be the talk of the island.Better yet,you will be the king of your island. Just dial in your selection and the drink maker does the rest. So dont be a ‘snub queen’, be a ‘drink king’.

Like everybody else who saw this you were captivated by it’s look and what it does. Well when you purchase it you will still feel the same. It’s so simple that a 9 year old can operate it. It makes 48 different drinks; 16 distinguished drinks each per spirit. It’s cool to look at and you don’t have to worry about making the drinks. The drinks are made well and strong to even strongeri keeps it real not only do i like it but i also purchased it to show off as well. The only draw back that i wish they had done differently would be creating two additional ports for the other spirits so you wouldn’t have to change the individual spirits one at a time i. If someone wants a rum drink and you have vodka in the port you would have to take out the bottle with vodka bottle and insert a bottle with rum. Comes with only one spirit bottle additional bottles are sold separately.

We already had the tahiti frozen concoction maker and this was the perfect complement. It works great and everyone loves it. It is a great for partys, like having a bartender on staff. If you have thirsty friends, you do refill the containers quite often.

It was the hit of the party with folks of all ages. Just select which alcohol to use, pour in the mixes & let the machine figure out the drinks that can be made.

It’s a great gift, but it’s embarrassing – it only really uses one liquor bottle the rest our mixers, it’s a nice toy, but like everything margaritaville branded a little pricier than it should be.

I bought this for a friend in another country, he couldn’t get one where they were.

Nicknamed ‘the bad decision maker’. I purchased this for myself, for those lazy poolside days of summer. Sadly, it arrived on a day when my son was visiting, and that is the last i saw of it. However, he and his friends have been having a great time with it, and it is now called ‘the bad decision maker’ by all of them.

It is a great adult toy, but we have found that it is leaking horribly after every other use. It is challenging to properly clean the entire thing. Our friends think its great but they arent the ones doing the clean up.

This was the hit of our mardi gras party. We put it at one end of the bar and no one even bothered with the bartender. It was fun and entertaining for our guests and the drinks were awesome. I wish it came with extra places to hold 2 more canisters for extra alcohol choices.

This item was a big hit at this years family christmas party. We no longer have to worry about getting the blend just right or wasting too much alcohol.

It was a little pricey but well worth the money. People cant wait to get the next drink.

This is fun and really enjoy it at parties. We did get an extra liquor tank (that did take a long time to get in the mail). Only bummer was that this drink maker dropped in price a lot soon after we purchased it.

This machine is nothing less than awesome. Just make sure you purchase some two extra liquor tanks so you can have the rum vodka and tequila at the ready. Be advised there is a reservoir that holds some mixer and liquor when the tanks appear empty. They can be easily drained just by making and drink. My drink selector knob is a little flimsy but other than that this machine is definitely worth the purchase. This will be a hit at all my summer cookouts. By the way, you can also purchase a carry bag that the machine and tanks fit into nicely so you can take it almost anywhere you go.

This device works like a dream, honestly i am surprised that this is the first one on the market that i was able to find. I don’t hold many parties but when i do it is a pain to be the bartender and host. With this device it takes the load off as i set it up and forget about it. (that is until i need to add more to it. ) it takes only minutes to set up and i recommend cooling all the liquids within the containers before your party or event. Cleaning the device is a breeze as well. Very easy to take apart and wipe down. There is one little annoyance and that is the tray that the liquids go into hold a few ounces. So if you are trying to save liquor when your cleaning you have to manually hold the trigger down to get it back into the bottle. Other than that one little annoyance this is a killer product.

Homeleader 70 oz Professional Countertop Blender : large size is great, solid motor and speed control

I love this blender yes the top is plastic which i love because i cannot handle the weight of real glass blenders with arthritis, and carpul tunnel. It’s pretty modern looking and very easy to use. Very forceful and easy to clean.

Overall a good blender, however the lcd display’s integrity will fade due to the vibrations from the motor.

Good blender – own it about a year now, so far no issues with that.

I bought this blender to make green smoothies after borrowing a friend’s ninja. The ninja, although powerful, did not blend things completely smooth. My 9 year old refused to drink them and she had loved them in the past. This blender is easy to use and clean, and the “smoothie” setting makes perfect smoothies. I use chunks of frozen fruit and this blender gets through it easily. The “smoothie” setting is alarming at first. It starts and stops repeatedly and i thought it was broken.

  • LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
  • Excellent product. Durable
  • large size is great, solid motor and speed control

Homeleader 70 oz Professional Countertop Blender, LCD Screen, 1500W 9 Speed Commercial Multifunctional Power Blender, Black, K12-017

Only had it for about a month, but so far it’s exactly what i wanted. Plenty of power, good pre-sets (especially the smoothie one).

Chopped up ice and everything we put into it so far without any issues.

Works much better than my bullet. It’s worth the price and i absolutely love love love this product.

High quality blender overall, large size is great, solid motor and speed control. Jenky user experience (way too much button pushing). Also i somehow broke off a small piece of plastic from the cap which used to lock it into place. I guess i turned it the wrong direction but i feel like it broke a little too easily.

My neighbors and i get together often for drinks and we alternate who is making the drinks. In the summer we prefer to blend up frozen drinks and smoothies to combat the hot weather. This blender is great for making frozen drinks, the consistency is exactly as desired. The blender has multiple pre-set settings that just require you to select by turning the knob and hitting start. There is a smoothie setting which is what i used to makes the drinks. There is also a manual option that allows you to set the blend time and speed. You can start and stop the blender at any time using start/stop button. Overall the blender is pretty self-explanatory to get set up and to use. I have another well-known name brand blender and this homeleader blenders performs just as well as that blender. I have tested out the various settings with different foods, and the performance has consistently out-performed my expectations.

 i am super impressed by how powerful this blender is. We had a big gathering at our house yesterday and the blender was in constant use because i used to be a mixologist (aka, bartender) so everyone always expects awesome, over-the-top drinks whenever i host an event. I was too busy to take time to shoot any video of drinks being made yesterday, plus the fact that i had a house full of people so that would’ve been weird. Instead, i decided to make myself and my husband some frozen cherry lime margaritas tonight and i filmed the process. I didn’t show how i layered the ingredients because doing that while holding the camera would have been difficult, so i’ll just tell you what i did. I added a bunch of ice, i topped the ice with a bag of frozen pitted cherries, i added a can of frozen limeade, then i added a half can of tequila (i “measured” the half can by filling the empty limeade can). I set the blender to the “smoothie” setting and let it do its thing. You can see how powerful the blender is and the end result is a perfectly smooth frozen drink. It absolutely produces professional, restaurant quality results. In comparison to my ninja blender, this one takes the cake when it comes to speed and performance.

I have been using a vitamix blender for years until it broke recently. I’ve been looking for a new one and found this brand and it seemed very nice. The blender arrived promptly as promised and came well packaged to prevent damage of any kind. As soon as the blender arrived, i checked it out to see if there were any imperfections or damage and am happy that it came in perfect condition. It was also very easy to put together and all the parts were accounted for. The included parts are the steam cup, lid, sealing ring, jug, drive socket in the unit and it comes with a spare, the tamper, and the unit base itself. I made sure to clean this before using by putting it on the top shelf of my dishwasher. I wasn’t sure if it was dishwasher safe but it did well and no pieces were damaged in the dishwasher. I put it all back together and got set to use it. The large knob on the front allows you to choose from many different programs such as; fruit & vegetable, soy milk, sauce, nuts, bisque, and smoothie.

In our married life, we’ve probably gone through 15 blenders. It’s usually the margaritas with the ice that kills them. It got to where we no longer made smoothies or used a blender at all because the glass always cracked or the plastic screw that holds the glass would crack. Consider an oster or hamilton beach blender a paper airplane. In comparison, this would be a stealth jet. This is high tech, commercial looking and there’s no little cutesy elements to it. The blending glass is huge (70 ounce) and holds alot. Yet you start mixing ice with some simple sugar and a little gin and it blends beautifully into heaven.

It really works well, but a bit bulk blender.

We had owned many blenders before this one, but there has never been a match for this homeleader 70 oz professional countertop blender, lcd screen, 1500w 9 speed commercial multifunctional power blender, black, k12-017, including ninja professional blender we had to return for another brand. This is quieter than other blender we have ever had. The name “lanre sule” will be displayed with your feedback.

My husband ordered this blender for me for christmas in lieu of the more expensive blender i really wanted. First i want to say this blender has a serious motor. I think it could blend a piece of wood. Fruit smoothies were super creamy (no chunks). I really disliked the control panel. It was such a pain to switch to smoothie setting. The knob seems to turn without it switching settings and you have scroll through all the settings to get to one. It was more difficult to switch to manual settings to blend/chop something. We returned it because it is not as user friendly as we would like.

Revised review 5/5/2017:after a couple of months of testing and using this blender, i’m ready to write a better-informed review. Positives:+ large pitcher; light weight (plastic)+ powerful motor; processes everything smooth+ many handy preset ‘programs’+ manual options for simple jobsnegatives:- plastic pitcher (i would prefer glass; many others prefer plastic for lighter weight)- clunky knob operation; lcd difficult to read- lid parts flimsy; thin plastic fragile- lid does not stay on when processing a full pitcher; it must be held down. (tip: inserting the feeder-hole cover after the lid is already in place seems to relieve the pressure and keep the lid better in place. )once i figured out the quirks and the program options, this blender seems to do a good job on my two main tasks: breakfast smoothies and chia puddings. However, the dial and the lcd screen have already started behaving differently from when i started using it. I will be using it only six months of the first year, so i expect it to last at least until the end of the 1-year warranty. I am somewhat leery of the fact that the blades don’t come off for cleaning. However, as suggested by another user, running it a few seconds with warm water and dish detergent seems to do the trick. – comment: all the 5-star reviews seem to be written by hospitality-service professionals who received free samples of the blender for review. I can understand giving this blender 5 stars if it’s free, but i do expect more from an investment of over $150 of my hard-earned money.

Durable, doesn’t bounce around – the grandkids love the smoothie feature 🙂 and so do i.

Melitta Zone – 365 Pour-Over Drip Brewer – My mom really gushed about how nice they were and how the coffee “tastes so much

This is a great way to brew amazing pour over coffee at home. I was wanting to get into brewing my own pour over coffee every morning after trying amazing craft coffee at my favorite coffee shops in town. After looking around i decided to go with a higher quality setup & chose legendary swan. The lifetime warranty is worth it alone but i can also tell the difference with the quality of the set & the money saved not having to use filters is definitely worth it. For anyone wanting to step up their coffee game i’d highly recommend this pour over kit.

One of those rare products that you don’t have to hide when you have guests over, it looks great right on the counter. I also love that you don’t have to kill trees to get more paper coffee filters over and over. Great for the environment, great for your wallet.

I received this coffee maker as a christmas gift and love it. It just makes the best drip coffee i ever tasted.

It doesn’t make a whole lot of coffee so be sure you get the right size for your needs. I use it every morning and so far, so good.

Bought as gift for son in law, he loves it.

The best coffee i have tasted comes out of this maker. Since i have a boiling water faucet, all i do is put 2 scoops in stainless funnel, put under faucet and in seconds i have great cup of coffee which for me is 16oz. It just as quick to clean because because the grounds have been completely screen and all i get is pure coffee and there is hardly any ground left in funnel. I put the funnel on top of sink drain and spray water on funnel that completely cleans it and then i put water in carafe and everything is completely clean. The total time was about 3 minutes. If you need to heat your water it will take a little longer. You can have enough coffee for 2 cups in same time for 2-16oz. And if you have other people take another 3-5 minutes to make their coffee.

  • High quality pour over set
  • A great solution for pour over coffee makers!
  • I love the flavor my coffee has from this slow brew

Great pour over and absolutely love the mesh as i find it a bit of a hassle to mess with paper filters – and when you run out. With this setup that’s never an issue – so i’m really happy with this product as it solves what was previously a major pain for me as it’s difficult to get paper filters where i live. If you love pour over coffee but like me find paper filters to be a bit of a hassle, highly recommend getting one of these units as it solves that problem completely.

High quality, beautiful and functional.

I love my coffee made with this slow drip maker.

It makes it so much easier to get my coffee ready in the morning and i love how conservative it is. The more green a product is, the more i like it and this is by far one of the best ways to save paper and reduce waste from coffee filters. It’s durable, easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to storewhat else could you want?i highly recommend this product.

Bought these for my parents who are stringent coffee drinkers. My mom really gushed about how nice they were and how the coffee ‘tastes so much better now’.

This is a different standard of coffee than even your branded coffee shops. You can taste the richness in every sip.

The number one thing i love more than my family is coffee. I don’t start off my day without a perfect cup and with this drip coffee maker i get a relaxing beautiful tasting cup of coffee before the chaos of my day. I had a hundred questions for seller before buying and it was some of the best customer service i have experienced.

No more buying and wasting tons of paper filters every year. Truly makes your coffee taste even better.

With the electric kettle this is a very quick and easy way to make just enough coffee for one or two people. Coffee tastes great and clean up is very easy. One week assessment – far better than a ‘mr.

High quality product and doesn’t leak grinds at all.

Good coffee made from glass and stainless steel only. Has a great clean taste about it.

I wish i had found this product long before now. The main things i love about this product is that it is light weight, easy to use and reusable. The number 1 best feature about this is the taste. I buy a mix of roasted coffee beans from south america, i have been using the beans for years, after using the 365 non-electric coffee maker it has enhanced the flavors, i use to use the paper filters so i am guessing it trapped the flavor some how. I will never go back to paper filters.

This took all the negatives out of coffee making. I always hated wasting all that money on k-cups and feeling beholden to that one company forever. Now, i make one investment at the beginning in a good brewer and i save money over the life of it.

What a wonderful idea, this product is so beautiful, classic product.

My girlfriend, a big coffee lover, loves it.

I love the flavor my coffee has from this slow brew coffee maker. It is so easy to use and my coffee just tastes so much better. I also like that the filter is reusable, very easy to clean and durable.

I got this, because i already have an 8 cup chemex coffee pot, but don’t use that on an everyday basis. This looks like a chemex (which i love), but makes about 4, 6-oz cups. Perfect for me in the morning. The wood apron is a little cheap feeling/looking and the cord that ties it closed is definitely thin – either a plastic or flimsy leather. I keep meaning to replace it with a piece of leather, like a leather shoe string – which is what my chemex has. The apron doesn’t really protect your hands from the hot pot, bc they are both so small. It makes a delicious cup of coffee. I prefer to use a paper cone (with my single cup drip cone), bc clean up is a lot easier. The metal mesh is messy when rinsing the grounds out.

It is such a beautifully made and functional product. I will never go back to paper filters again. It is durable construction and has this high quality feel that always gets compliments from our guests.

I really love the coffee using this two piece system. The stainless steel filter is very sturdy which was a concern of mine going into this purchase. If you really want true coffee flavor, use this system and you won’t be sorry. I have had to spend more time making my coffee, however, it is definitely worth the effort.

DaPai Automatic Food Vacuum Sealer – The machine is great, and the vacuum bag is attached

This unit does not work with mylar bags (i tried it with one quart genuine mylar bags (made in usa) with 300cc oxygen absorbers (50)). It vacuumed and sealed in 1 out of 10 attempts. It behaved erratically, sometimes not vacuuming at all and switching to sealing right away, other times vacuuming but not sealing. When it did seal, more often than not, the seal was not tight, causing the bag to slowly re-inflate again. I returned this vacuum sealer and cannot recommend it. I received a follow-up email from dapai customer service after the return that stated that it does not work with mylar bags and it should only be used with the bags that come with the unit. This information should be made available in the product descriptionupdate: dapai customer service contacted me several times trying to exactly understand the issues i encountered in an effort to improve their product. Adding a star for good customer support. Update 2: i have since received the foodsaver gamesaver deluxe vacuum sealer (foodsaver gamesaver deluxe vacuum sealing kit) and it doesn’t work with mylar bags either. Apparently, i am expecting too much from a household device.

This product has been great so far. I have been vacuum sealing everything i can. This vacuum sealer has a spot where you can attach a jar sealer but i have not bought one to try it out so i do not know how well it works. I will update when i try it. This sealer works pretty well for the price. I payed forty something for it so it was a good price. I bought mine refurbished or used and i did not realize what i had bought. I thought it would be new but it worked and i kept it and has been working fine. It is pretty quiet compared to others i’ve seen. It does not do liquids so anything liquid will have to be frozen first.

So far it performs as advertised.

Product is packaged very well and arrived in perfect shape. After removing all shipping padding and protective film i plugged the sealer in. The buttons lit up red then blue, indicating that all systems are working. I grabbed some fresh almonds and one of the smaller, included bags. Since the heating unit is on the top, i placed the smooth side of the bag up, and made sure there was no dust from the nuts in the area to seal. The gaskets are new so i needed to push down both sides fairly firmly to get it to close, this is a good thing and i assume will become slightly easier over time. I made sure that both sides clicked, indicating that the top is sealed down and ready. By pressing the center button then the left button the sealer started and did a good job of getting the air out of the bag. I could tell by the way the bag pulled around individual almonds that it was a good vacuum. Next i tried pushing on the two sides and nothing happened (i forgot to read the instructions, lol).

Sometimes does not seal the bag, havent figured out the reason. Dont try food that has fluid in it, freeze first, vacuum seal after.

As a professional chef, i cryopak meat, veg, and everything in between with a commercial vacuum pack machine. So it just make sense to own one at home, this is easy to use and gives your food some more shelf lives. It’s compact so it doesn’t take too much space in my kitchen, it’s light weight so once i’m done vacuum packing my meats, i can just tuck it away in a shelf.

  • Pleasantly surprised, NICE Vacuum Sealer
  • Awesome buy
  • Works great

We buy meat in bulk from the store when they are in discount. We cut them into small potion and put them in zip lock bags and save it in the freezer. However, after a while, you can see that the meat is not fresh and smells bad as well. So, i bought this little machine and see if it make difference. The sealer comes in a basic packaging, with 10 seal plastic bags. Put the food in the seal plastic bag3.

I had never used a vacuum sealer before in my life prior to using the dapai vacuum sealer. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review after testing it out. I am actually pretty pleased with it. When it first arrives, it comes nicely packaged. It comes with 5 medium and 5 smaller sized bags. In the medium sized bags, we were able to package 2 good sized boneless chicken breasts. The small bags will fit one good size boneless chicken breast. I am pretty happy with the size of the bags, though a bigger bag would be nice for packaging more breasts at once. Now, using the vacuum sealer is very easy. You just plug it in (the plug is tucked away in a storage compartment underneath the unit).

We have sealed about 100 bags so far with zero problems. We had a food saver brand sealer previously and this depai, so far, has worked better and is easier to use. To this point we are totally satisfied.

The machine is great, and the vacuum bag is attached. Try it, cut the fruit into a vacuum-packed tightly packed, and don”t change color. If you don”t eat your potato chips, you can also use a plain bag to wrap them up.

The machine does not create a solid seal across the entire bag unless you mess with it forever. Once you finally can get it all to work it seems to do well. I thought it might work better over time and i have tried it several times. Still takes time to get it to work and it isn’t worth my time. Updating review:dapai reached out to me about the review above and sent me another unit free of charge to show that i recieved a bad product by chance. I have given it some time to try it out and after only a few uses the motor on it has grown very noticeably weak. The sealer on this one seems fine. I like the overall design and look of this product but i have now recieved two bad products in a row. I will raise my rating to a 3 for good customer service and the fact that this unit still actually works for now.

Im so glad i got this unit instead of foodsaver. This one comes with the extra features like the bag cutter and storage and cost less than competitors.

Max Burton 6530 ProChef 3000-Watt Commercial Induction Cooktop – The go to burner

Typically i home brew beer outdoors on a big propane burner but over the winter i have struggled braving the cold to get outdoors and brew. With this however i can just move my stove out of the way plug this guy in and get brewing. It takes a little longer to get going than the big propane burner but is still quite quick. It’s a bit noisy and makes some very sci-fi noises while it is running the coil. Also as other posters have stated it does seem to heat a fairly small circle in the center of the pot, even though i have a tri-ply bottom on the pot i use.

I have used this for 3 months now, installed a 220v outlet in my kitchen to get the extra power that 3000w affords. This is a well made unit for a very reasonable price and works exactly like professional induction cooktops from cooktek etc at a fraction of the price. The only thing i don’t love about it is the touch glass controls which require multiple presses to get the setting you want. A good old fashioned dial is the best control. However that doesn’t take a star off of this workhorse that literally boils water in 10 seconds. This is a godsend for boiling water for pasta (which takes ages on a gas or electric stove), and for deep frying to keep the oil perfectly hot even as you add more food. When purchasing pans for this unit, make sure to bring a small magnet with you to test the bottom of the pan for ferromagnetic compatibility. I have purchased several pans from local stores that said they were stainless steel, but did not work at all with this unit. Iron fry pans always work well, though.

Im very glad with this purchase. Here are the specifications for the Max Burton 6530 ProChef 3000-Watt Commercial Induction Cooktop:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 3000-watt commercial-quality induction cooktop with 13 power levels
  • Push-button controls and digital display and 170-minute timer
  • 13 temperature settings from 140 to 464 Degrees F with overheat sensor and auto shut-off

I brewed my 2nd batch of beer today in as many days, it heats up 4 gallons of 54 degree well water to 170 degrees in 20 minutes, to 185 degrees in 25 minutes, my strike, and sparging temps. It takes 6 1/2 gallons of warm wort to boil in 20 minutes. I set the plate on 3000 watts, when the boil starts i turn it down to 2000 watts with no boil overs, no mess. 2000 watts holds the wort at a perfect boil. Totally awesome, love it, an excellent investment. I now can brew beer without concern from gas fumes too, hence indoor brewing during the cold months. I usually get 4 to 5 batches of beer out of a 20lb. 00/batch, this plate uses way less energy, less cost for a batch of home brew. The plate is a little noisy, it has a fan running the entire time it is on, doesn’t bother me any, cooking with an outdoor propane cooker it just as noisy in not more so.

Excellent 3000 watt 240volt induction cooktop. And here’s important info:if you imagine moving/etc where your new place (or any other place you cook, eg, at a neighbor’s barbeque,do consider this solution: if that 2nd location has only 120v service, please do consider this solution:a 3000watt ‘voltage converter’. Such as this unit:from: 220-electronics. Com :3000 watt diamond series voltage transformer with regulator int-dsr3000 1 $166. 50this device , though pricey, goes ‘both ways’. . Converting 120v to 220 , or: 220 to 110. It’s nice to know that your ‘fav’ induction 220 cooker can be used at other service voltages: who knows when you might move. And who knows when you might need some electronic device that’s only available in a voltage which is not available at your ‘new’ or ‘temp’ location??i just ordered mine , though it’s shown to be ‘top of the line’. ( i dont believe in ‘price-shortcutting’ with electronic devices). So will return in time and report on it’s quality.

This product is very powerful. I’ve used it a couple of times and it has treated me well. The only issue i had was the plug. This is a standard 20 amp plug. Up until now, i didn’t have one of these receptacles in my house. After having an electrician over for a quick switch all is well.

I have the max burton 1800 watt unit and is the only thing i use, i have had it for 3 years now with not one issue. I thought i would upgrade to the 3000 watt unit and i did, the unit is very solid, gets things hot and boils large amounts of water like you would not believe, but the display was not clear as the picture shows, but when i complained to the company at that time they were prompt in their response and offered on with a good display (that was not a deal breaker for me) actually their customer support was what anyone would wish for. One of the reasons i returned it is what another reviewer mentioned and that is 1800 watt setting and below is pulse and i believe it is 1800 watt hot per pulse, and the reason i say that is when comparing boiling water in equal size pans and amounts of water on the 1800 watt unit and the 3000 watt unit at low temps the smaller unit does not cause nearly the boil the large one causes. The other reason which for me was the deal breaker was the fact that the units heating area was very small, if you use a 12in skillet and heat water in it you will see a 5 to 5. 5in ring that produces the heat and that is a ring that is no more than 1′ wide, it is not even a solid circle of a heating area, that to me is a flaw i could not deal with, i could have dealt with the pulse issue if the heating area was like 10′ and solid, i would have not worried about it then. The current configuration is a great one for many i am sure but for controlled/even cooking i don’t believe this works well.

I recently switched from brewing 5 gallon batches with a propane burner to using this induction burner. You hit your temperatures to much faster and go from sparge to boil in under a half hour. If you need to brew indoors (like us here in manhattan) get this powerful induction burner.

Homebrewing 5 gallon batches with this induction burner and it works great. Brings water up to strike temperature quickly and cna maintin a strong rolling boil.

I use this in a commercial bakery to heat up syrups, i use an over-sized 15 gallon pot on it and can say i was extremely impressed. Before using this, i was using a 96,00 btu (imagine small jet engine) gas burner to heat up this same pot, it took me about 15 mins to get my 50 pounds of syrup to a boil with that, with this cook top, i get the same results within 5 minutes, and since this product does not need a hood fan to be considered safe to operate, it saved me a minimum of 10,000$. On top of that, it is extremely well made and durable and has sustained repeated commercial use, and weights up to 100 pounds. It comfortably holds our 22 inch pots still allowing easy access to the controls. If you are curious about this unit, know that you need a special plugin for this (220v) and no adapter will work, you will need an electrician to put one in for you.

This magnetic induction cooktop is powerful and works very well in a commercial environment.

I’ve had this burner for about a year now and it is now the go to burner in the kitchen. I first bought it for brewing beer but it does so much more. The temperature settings are plenty adequate and it is well-made. There are no complaints and if something should happen to it i probably would buy another one, but i doubt that i will have to because it seems rocksolid.

I’ve used these in my kitchen for 6 years now ( though they only tend to work for about 2-3 years). I have 3 of them so that when 1 goes out i have backups. Cook great, work fast, heats quickly, stays cool, and is pretty quiet. Just be ready to replace it after a while.

This is a great way to cook, but only if you take the time to learn how to use it. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and have been discovering new approaches with each use. This is not like cooking on a regular cooktop. Upon purchase the first thing that i did was to test how fast it would boil water. Using a half liter of water and the same pan i boiled water with our gas range that has a 15000 btu burner. With this cooktop it took 1 minute and 30 seconds or 38% of the time for the gas burner. I also spent time boiling water with various pots and pans to get a sense of how it performed. Its strong point is it speed and control. Start boiling water and turn it off and almost immediately it stops boiling.
