BELLA (14124) 6.5 Quart Programmable Searing Slow Cooker with Locking Lid, Chrome : A Working Mom’s Dream

This is not my first slow cooker, nor is it the first of this size. However i do have to say it is the first programmable one i have owned and i like it. Two unique features:this slow cooker has two unique features. Locking lid: this is handy if you move your slow cooker anywhere and i think most of us do. I can see us putting this in the back of the car to take to many get togethers. Due to this lid we will carry it with less worry. An aluminum pot that you can use to brown your meat in and that is also your slow cooker insert. To be honest we did not use the feature (to brown your meat on the stovetop), but i have to say the metal insert is light and easy to carry, as well as to clean and handle. Compared to most ceramic inserts when they are this size they are hard to handle due to the weight. This one was light and very non-stick. It also has nice rubberized bumpy handles.

My previous slow cooker as an old rival that i have had for at least 20 years and i didn’t expect much to change, but it really has with this one. First of all, i love that you can sear right in the removable dish. This keeps you from messing up another pan and also keeps all the delicious seared flavor runoff in the pot. It worked perfectly on my electric stove. The removable dish has rubber on each end making it easy to get from the stove to the slow cooker shell without burning your hands. There are also rubber covered handles on the outside unit if you needed to move the whole cooker. The lid to this cooker is attached in the back (can be removed with the press of a button) so when you lift the steaming lid you just need to tilt it back and it just stays up out of the way. There is one little hole on the lid for steam to escape and the lid has rubber around the rim and it keeps all the heat inside and also has a latch securely fastens it down. With that being said, this little baby cooked our roast in about 3. To where my other slow cooker took over 6 hours. It has preset programs to what type of dish you are cooking and you just hit start and not worry about it. I was really shocked at how efficient it was and how it didn’t heat the house up while cooking (a nice thing in a texas summer). Clean up was easy and i am very pleased with this slow cooker.

The best roast i have ever made.

  • Love the item, not the company!
  • Great!
  • Great slow cooker! A great value, and a big step up from the tried-and-true Crock Pot, especially for someone who uses it a lot!

Love the light weight insert pot. It is great for browning/searing. The programming is easy to use and very helpful.

This is a nice size slow cooker that is programmable. The inner food container can go on the stovetop for searing. The finish is a nice aluminum that looks modern and doesn’t get fingerprint smudges all over it. The first time you use it, you have to put water in it and let it go for a while. This helps get rid of the new smell and wasn’t too big of an issue. Here’s some of what i like, and don’t like, about it:pros-it’s oval, and larger cuts of meat fit better in an oval shape in my experience. 5 quarts – which is more than enough to handle all my needs. -it’s pretty-it’s programmable- you can set it for the type of meat you are cooking, or for the time you want it to cook.

The searing pot is excellent. The lid has to be removed to serve out of it.

Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to carry. As others have noted, you want to wear a mitt when lifting the lid, or you might get scalded by the steam. The inner pot handles and the exterior can get pretty hot, so use caution. This being said, i love my bella slow cooker. I love that i can sear meat or sautee veggies without using another pot, and, more importantly, without leaving tasty browned bits out. I love coming back home to a delicious smell. I love how it heats uniformly with no scorching. I love that i can put the pot in the dishwasher.

It is a little hard to remove and replace the insert pan. And when you open the lid you have to be careful so you don’t “steam” yourself. When the lid is all the way open there is a little bit of a balance problem when the pan is empty. I will keep this unit as it cooked perfectly, the pan can be used on the stove for browning first and it is really easy to clean.

Light and easy clean up is so easy.

I got a slow cooker as a wedding gift 25 years ago. It sat in a cabinet for years and i finally gave it away. I had been seeing so many delicious slow cooker recipes all over the place, so i did some research and, thanks to many awesome reviewers, i got this bad boy. The searing feature is the best.

5-qt slow cooker is big enough to feed a small army or, as last used, cook a whole mess of ribs (5 lbs) for my husband. It cooks beautifully, and cleanup of the nonstick pot is a breeze, even after cooking sugary ribs. Both inside and outside of the inner pot are nonstick. I like that the pot can be removed for searing. Yes, you still have to use the stove top to sear, but you don’t have to dirty an extra pan to do it – just sear and then put the pot back into the cooker. The preset modes (beef, pork chicken, stew, high and low) are nice but setting the heat mode and timer are easy if you know how long and at what heat setting you want to cook. The preset modes help if you really don’t know how long you should cook that stew on low. I like that after the timing period is over, the cooker goes to “warm” mode. I love that the lid locks in place but detaches completely.

This bella programmable slow cooker with searing pot is an amazingly attractive, lightweight and sturdy slow cooker. Before, i wouldn’t think of bringing hot dishes to potlucks. My old cooker was too heavy and had no way to lock the lid in place, which i felt made it dangerous for me to transport while full. I was worried about the ceramic insert falling out/breaking (it eventually cracked). In contrast, this ultra-light nonstick (ceramic-coated) aluminum insert has silicon grip handles in addition to handles on the unit itself. The lid locks into place with a snug seal. *you might need to use two hands to press the front lid button. It definitely takes two hands to squeeze open the latch that removes the back part of the lid. This piece must come off in order to remove the aluminum insert resting beneath its two projections. This process is not a problem for the average user.

Company very nice to work with.

I’ve not actually used the pan/insert on the stove to seer anything, but it is nice having the option should i feel it necessary. So far, after a few months of use several times a week, i haven’t had any issues. The pan/insert has remained resistant to sticking short of a couple of scrapes in the coating that were put with an unfortunate knife event by a family member not used to these kinds of coatings.

The ring absorbs odors, and i find it off-putting. Also, to help anyone else not make the same mistake, it is a metal non-stick. This means it’s light and easy to carry and store. But, it also means if you worry about teflon-type coatings, it’s a poor choice.

This is quite a slow cooker. We have an old crock pot which has outlived it’s usefulness and we are moving on and moving up to the bella 14124 programmable slow cooker with searing pot. Every meal we have had so far has turned out magnifico. We wife claims this is fancier and easier to cook then her old crock pot. It is easier to clean and operate.

I bought it to replace an old crock pot (you know the vintage style one with the separate griddle tray) that i thought i loved until i got this. This is so convenient with the different settings. I never worry about leaving anything in there too long, nothing has burnt. I now make my stock and bone broth in this instead of the stove top because there isn’t as much reduction and i can trust leaving it alone all day or overnight. I also like that it switches it to ‘warm’ afterwards so you don’t have to worry about your food getting cold and becoming unsafe to eat. The only consideration is the lid gasket is very hard to get clean. There have been several times i thought i’d washed it throughly, only to still smell the previous meal on it later.

I use a crock pot a minimum of once per week. This slow cooker will be the fourth slow cooker in my cabinet. Tonight i cooked pulled pork with this slow cooker. It has a lid that locks into place. The timer and keep warm feature is great. You can enter the type of meat cooked and it gives you a suggested amount of cooking time. There are instructions to show you how to program your slow cooker. You can remove the aluminum pot from the slow cooker and use the pot to sear meats on the stove top.This cuts down on the number of dishes to be washed.

Love it, mine was very old and gave up, that one is so much better.

I was extremely happy with this crockpot at first. I love that the lid locks and is also removable. Being able to use the internal crock on the stove top is an incredible feature- beef stew has become exponentially more efficient. It’s also easy to clean and isn’t heavy like most crockpots i’ve had. Plus, the timer feature is really convenient. No more worrying about rushing home from work so my dish won’t be overcooked. One glaring negative for me is the fact that i’ve only owned this crockpot for four months and the coating on the internal crock is already chipping off. This is a deal breaker for me. I’m not going to chance having flecks of chemical coating breaking off into the food i serve my family. It’s too late to return this so i’m contacting bella myself to see how they plan to resolve this.

If you’ve still got an old crock pot from the 1990s, this bella slow cooker will be a real step up. It is programmable for a wide range of cooking times, stylish looking and easy to use. I’ve had good luck with stews, roasts and pulled pork. While there are some minor design issues as mentioned in other reviews (don’t sear on an open flame, like a gas stove), i’ve really enjoyed the ease and convenience that this cooker offers.

BELLA 13962 Rocket Blender Sport : Very handy tool and easy to clean

I like that you get the pulp of the fruit with this blender, and that, consequently, the cleanup is very easy. Be sure to add liquid before blending (water, juice, milk. Otherwise the blender won’t work, and the motor will get over-heated.

It blends my almased shakes perfectly. I toss on a few berries sweetener and cocoa. Just make sure you put liquid in before power so it doesn’t get stuck on the bottom if the cup. Shake it before blending and don’t use frozen items such as berries or ice. I add an ice cube to the shake after i’ve blended so that i can shake it up from time to time. Great price and good quality.

Gave one to both of my college aged daughters – they are both loving them.

It’s perfact for on person and so cute.

I did not purchase this on amazon, however, having owned this lovely little miracle for just about a month, i wanted to tell my fellow members and the world how much i love it. The first day i got it, i sped to the grocery and purchased a fruit tray of pre cut goodies and then sped home to try it. I could not believe for the first time in my life, i whipped up a fresh fruit smoothie with no added sweetener that tasted like heaven in literally seconds. I put cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew and pineapple chunks with a few slices of banana and as instructed(important people) added a little bit of water. Imagine my shock when i simultaneously realized in seconds that i not only saved myself from purchasing a $3-400 vitamix, versa, etc, etc. , but i actually made a healthy, tasty, low cal, made to order shake that reminded me of a fruit drink i had 20+ yrs ago on a family reunion in the fresh fruit in your yard caribbean- complete and pure nirvana – and the best part was, i knew exactly what was in there cause i made it myself. Still in disbelief and wanting now to push my luck even further, cause surely this must of been a fluke, i rinsed the jar out and threw in some walnut pieces to see if this thing could chop nuts too cause i use them frequently in baking snack breads, etc. Shazam, the walnut pieces became smaller walnut pieces and even stared to become minced in seconds. I was like thinking “how did i get so lucky” as i prepared to get dressed and get to where i had to be, instead of standing there blending things with my mouth hanging open from shock. The next day still high from what i witnessed in my kitchen the day before, i set out to try adding vegetables to the mix to see what happens when i add stuff that’s a little more fibrous than melons and bananas- well a green smoothie is what happened, thank you very much.

This works ok but it’s hard to get it all mixed and there’s nothing big enough to reach the stuff on the bottom so you get chunks 🙁 plus the seal keeps coming lose so it’s leaking.

Works well, but the lid leaks if the cup falls over. I will be ordering more parts such as an additional cup.

Weird smell, kind of hard to lock it, but overall not horrible.

This product cannot be used for any smoothie recipe that calls for ice cubes, this product does not grind ice cubes, this product is great for making milk shakes.

It’s an okay blender for the price, but i wouldn’t have wanted to pay a dollar more. If i was in the market for a new smoothie blender again, i’d probably hold out for something better. Pros:–it blends surprisingly well. I throw whatever i want in there: large ice cubes, huge chunks of fruit, etc—it all comes out evenly blended, even the very bottom of the tumbler (which is the “top” of the blender. )–it’s cute; the purple color is unusual. You can leave it out on the counter without it being an eyesore. Literally, there are no buttons, and no speeds to choose from. Cons:–the worst problem is that when you twist the tumbler firmly in the purple base to turn the blender on, and then reverse-twist to turn it off again, sometimes that just unscrews the tumbler from the base, instead of halting the blending.

This thing works great for the price. I wish they’d sell separate bottles.

It works great, going on a couple weeks strong with daily use blending both fresh and frozen fruit with yogurt. The price is wonderful, the container is plenty big for a single serving, and if you rinse the blades off right away after you use it, it’s pretty easy to clean as well. My only caution: be sure to screw the blades on tight to the bottle. I tried to unscrew it to remove it from the base today, and the jar started unscrewing from the blades, upside down, while it was still running, which would have left me with a huge liquid mess and uncovered whirling blades of doom. Fortunately screwing it back on tightly and trying again solved the problem with no mess.

Very handy tool and easy to clean. I use this when am not in the mood to juice or in a hurry or want the actual fruit n veg in my smoothie.

Man, i’m so disappointed – i’m smelling that oh-so-familiar burnt wire smell when i use this little guy to make my custom shakes. This in no way means this product is inferior or not for you. It simply means it has an issue with my raw oats, frozen berries, pb, egg, nuts and almond milk. That’s a tough haul for even the big blenders i guess.

I love this blender and it’s use for a single person. I am, however, wondering if there are extra bottles available for purchase.

Careful how you place your fruits and veggies. Sometimes it take a while for everything to blend.

Mixes my protein shakes just fine. Loud enough to wake my son on the other end of the house when i turn it on in the morning.

I bought 2 different blenders for myself and one for my husband. This one mixes and crushes the best. The only complaint is that you put the blades/top on it and then invert to blend. The top gets stuck sometimes and you have to turn the whole blender upside-down to get it off.

Purchased this blender at boscov’s for $10. It’s cheap, pretty, love the purple color and it does work. I’ve had it for about a year, but have not used it much, because i don’t know what happened to the rubber gasket, that came with the blending cover. You get two covers – one to seal the to-go cup and one for the cover with the blade. Each one should have its own rubber ‘o’ ring. But somehow i only had one, maybe i lost it when i was hand-washing it or when i was taking the blender out of the box and if i did, then there lies the problem; it gets lost easily. It’s clear color and super thin, so even if i did not lose it, it will probably break in no time. You have to go easy when you load the cup on the base for blending or else you will break this fragile rubber piece and without it, the blender will leak horribly. This is how i found out that something was wrong and when i compared it to the other cover, i noticed the rubber part. This blender does blend ice, but like any blender, it needs adequate liquids.

The mouth opening on the lid is terrible. It is really hard to drink out of. However, i love the blender and the cup is great. I use the lid for transport and remove it to drink.

BELLA 13701 Dots Collection 2-Slice Toaster : and I’ve spent a lot more on other toasters that don’t do 1/2 as good a job

I like the toaster as the color was perfect for my kitchen. I had a little trouble at first adjusting the temperature so as not to burn the item. It has a cancel button that is very handy if you think the toast is burning.

I have a small guesthouse and hate the way most toasters look after a few months of use. I had bought the coffee maker from bella and was very impressed by the choice of color and ease of cleaning – so ordered the toasters. Now i have matching appliances that are both easy to use and easy to clean.

BELLA 13701 Dots Collection 2-Slice Toaster, Red

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Includes easy to use bagel, defrost, reheat and cancel settings
  • Precise sliding browning controls with reheat function
  • Removable crumb tray for easy and quick cleaning
  • Anti-jam with automatic shutoff for your safety
  • 2 year limited warranty

Love the bagel option and the fact that it is made in hot pink so i can match my other appliances. Now if more companies would get on the hot pink bandwagon i would be a happy girl.

Came with scratches on the chrome, and whomever decided the electrical cord should be placed in front, was an idiot; seriously, who puts an electrical in the front?.

Dark, burnt ,or not dark enough.

BELLA 13701 Dots Collection 2-Slice Toaster, Red : I bought this red one for the office and i liked it so much that i got a purple one for my dorm. Very cute, very easy to use, fairly cheap, makes great toast, and stays cool on the outside. Also it is easy to clean the little crumb tray.

If you’re looking for a toaster with barebones, basic functionality, but also has a minimum of designer fanciness and would like to pay twice as much as for a toaster that does just as much but is not brightly colored, then look no further.

It matches my kitchen nicely. It has been working just fine. I like that the openings are big enough for bagels and that it has a bagel setting (button) that works really well.

It doesn’t toast very evenly. But it’s inexpensive so i wasn’t expecting much.

The color is a bit off compared to other bella teal appliances. Toasting can be inconsistent with even a slight movement of the setting. You kinda have to find one suitable setting and leave it there. If the setting lever is bumped a tad to the right stuff will burn.

This toaster is about as hot as a toaster can possibly be. . And it toasts perfectly even too. And i’ve spent a lot more on other toasters that don’t do 1/2 as good a job. Thanks ‘bella’ and amazon .

I like the toaster and purchased because i just redid my kitchen and need some accent colors. I wish there was more red on the front because its difficult to even notice it is red when looking at it head on.

Nothing bad to say about this toaster. It does what it’s supposed to do. No issues with it after about 6 months of use.

Toasts like a toaster should. Goes well with my bella coffee pot. A nice combo for my kitchen countertop. What you see is what you get. And would re-buy if need be.

I purchased this for my parents. Their toaster at home is toast. I needed something not too complicated with buttons, dials and numbers. It is nice looking and the orange covering with compliment the kitchen.

I love the color and i love how fast it works. I saw a lot of complaints about it burning people’s food because it cooks so fast. But that’s what i love about it. I can toast my bagel in minutes or even seconds sometimes. You simply have to watch it to make sure it doesn’t burn. I’m such a last minute person so when i decide to toast my bagel 3 minutes before i need to walk out the door and it cooks as fast as this one does to where i still have time to cream cheese it before walking out the door, hey that’s an awesome product to me. The only thing i don’t enjoy about it, is that the cord in positioned right at the front of the toaster instead of the back.

I needed a new toaster, so i appreciate now having this one. But it is no different than any other toaster. Maybe toasters are all the same?.

Took a week to get the setting right the way i wanted it, and beware it will smell very chemically for the first little while. That does go away however and works great- also very stylish and looks good too.

This toaster added some much needed color to my kitchen and it does its job quickly and efficiently. It feels a bit low quality in terms of materials but it performs well and looks nice.

My daughter loves this toaster, partially because it’s her favorite color. It is very pretty, and she has used it already and it works great.

Purple toaster that heats bread. It works as you would expect and has a crumb tray that slides out to remove any bread crumbs from the appliance. It apparently comes in many different colors, but you have to go to their website as they may not be available on amazon.

I went to wal-mart and they wanted more for this toaster and they didn’t have it in red. I ordered this one, it arrived in hawaii within 4 days and i paid less than i would had i purchased it down the street. Needless to say i am a happy customer. It is exactly as described and works perfectly.

BELLA (13506) 8-inch Quesadilla Maker, Red – Love it! Arrived on time and worth the price

Good device for a quick lunch making, no power button, just plug and go. Came with no manual inside as for cleaning or operation. Just make sure you don’t plug it in and walk away. Heats up pretty good for what i need it for.

This will make quesadillas so good it will make you wanna smack yo momma.

We were guests at our son and daughter-in-law’s house and they made quesadillas for us on their maker. There were so good we came home and ordered our own and have used it every week. Very easy to clean, especially if you wipe it off with a dry paper towel when it’s hot and the cheese is still liquid.

Inside chipped off when cleaning the first time.

This was a gift, so all i know is the recipient was pleased to receive it and it works as well as their previous one.

I love my quesadilla baker so much, it’s in constant use. Easy to use, easy to clean, and perfect to make a quick lunch.

  • Just “ok”
  • Great little machine that makes excellent quesadillas but the lid
  • Love it! Arrived on time and worth the price

Works great,non stick latch could improve not sure how robust it is.

Arrived on time and worth the price.

I am always a little sceptical of kitchen gadgets. Most things can be done with normal appliances for no extra cost. I received this as a christmas gift. I took it out along with a pan. I wanted to compare this gadget with cooking on the stove top. The description says 4-5 minutes for a quesadilla. I can do that on the stove top with the same results. It only takes about 30 seconds to 1 minute to cook a quesadilla that is perfect. It cooks to a nice crispy tortilla without burning it.

Bought for a wedding gift but looks awesome.

This is the perfect size for my quesadillas.

I bought one of these years ago and used it up until the day it finally gave out–and then promptly bought a new one. It’s not fancy, but it works great for the casual home cook.

We really like this quesadilla maker. I broke my fiancé’s and had to replace it and the reviews for this one were good. It melts the cheese perfectly and can take a good amount of ingredients and still close. It seems kind of flimsy, especially the latch, but it works really well.

I love the quesadilla maker. Another one i had didn’t have a rim around it to catch the drippings. I would have to clean the crevices with a straw. I highly recommend this one.

Bakes well, but plastic clip that secures the lid to bottom snapped off the first time it was used.

The kids really enjoy making quesadillas with all their favorite ingredients, and it is a super-easy and fast dinner idea for the days when i am working late and can’t be home in time to make something. We are going to have to keep more tortillas, black olives and sour cream on hand, so the young ones don’t run out.

It’s quick to warm up, easy to clean up. This machine is a great addition to the many cooking gadget/machines we have.

Non stick plates

This thing is great and so easy to use and clean. After very frequent use for almost a year the nonstick surface is still holding up. Just be sure that you do not use metal forks or spatulas and it should last a long time. Perfect for a meal in a hurry when you don’t want a boring sandwich.

Great addition to the kitchen.

Easy for my kids to use and easy to clean. I would recommend to anyone that loves quesadillas.

The latch on this product is not well designed imo. I’ve had it inadvertently pop open and it also disconnected from its hinge. I fixed that problem but i’m still not happy with that. The unit has no on/off switch so it must be unplugged when not in use or it remains hot. It is a deep pocketed cooker but there’s not a lot of room to stuff ingredients. Just an ‘ok’ unit and quite frankly i expected more from the brand name. Thatvsaid, it will cook and seal a skinny quesadea in a few minutes.

This is a great little electronic device. Makes great quesadillas and i also use it to make individual servings of fruit pies.

Built-in drip reservoir

This quesadilla maker is quick set up, quick cook, and quick clean. There’s no science to it for those of us who are challenged in the kitchen and there’s minimal time for those who don’t want to be in the kitchen. Comes ready to use, minimal learning curve.

This is literally my most used product in my kitchen (sad i know). But seriously, i used to make a lot of quesadillas for lunch in college on a pan on the stove and you know i used a butt load of butter, but after i bought this there was no dish washing, no long oil/butter heat up, just delicious cheese pockets. And last but not least, this thing has been working for me for over 6 years.

I never knew how to make a quesadilla before i bought this. I literally couldn’t make a quesadilla (i was 18 at the time it was given to me). However i think i broke it after running some water over it and i was too scared to see if it worked again. But overall it’s a great q-maker. It makes the most perrrrfect quesadillas. I haven’t been able to make a quesadilla as perfectly since. I plan on ordering another one since it was so easy to use.

You may not need a quesadilla maker to make quesadillas at home but it is so fun and easy that we use it all the time. My teenagers and their friends make quesadillas as snacks where they never would ‘break out a pan’ and make them. It toasts both sides and perforates for easy cutting. It heats up quickly and is easy to clean. If you think you might like this, then you will probably use and love it.

What a neat idea for drop in company for making snacks. Very useful for just us too. I love mexican type food and this perfect better than trying to put something together and serve fast tooenjoy this item a lot.

The unit heats up quickly and makes great quesadillas – it just does what you bought it for. I bought mine in a brick and mortar store (not here) but am completely happy with what i got.

Great little machine that makes excellent quesadillas but the lid latch is puny. When i do a thick, well filled quesadilla, i hold the lid down with a pot holder. Even with that inconvenience, this is still a useful product.

Power light on/off and ready light

At first we used this q-maker every day. Perhaps that’s why it fell apart. It still works but the handle is extremely temperamental when my young adult sons overfill the shells. The plastic around the hinge has cracked off but it still works. The drip drawer handle cracked off as well. It’s better with a plate under it now. We received this as a gift in april 2011. I’m in the market for a better one.

Includes El Paso Chile recipes

BELLA 10.5 Inch by 20 Inch Electric Non Stick Griddle, Black BPA-FREE 13602 – Good, but not as good as Delonghi

Arrived as noted in the shipping details. It looks like as i expected, the only problem with this product is , after a year of usage, teh grease doesnt come off from the sides. You cant scrub it like you would do any dish with liquid soap, i only use a wet towel. It doesnt take much off the hot plate, that aside i like this hot plate and i use it for many things like dosa, pancakes, stir fry.

We bought it 3 years ago, and it still works the same.

Too big for storage if u have small kitchen.

I have owned various griddles over the years. Most of them worked quite well. A few of them weren’t that great. This bella 13602 griddle falls somewhere in the middle of the pack. The first thing that i noticed when i received this package from amazon vine was that the griddle was very light and seemed a tad bit ‘cheap’ in its construction. However, it’s stable, the griddle drips well, and the heat is constant. I can’t complain about that at all. I can say that while the heat is constant, it is not evenly distributed across the griddle. Like many other people have already stated, anything cooked near the center of the heating element is cooked well, but once you get on the outskirts of said element, the outcome varies. I’ve made pancakes, fried eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, and grilled cheese sandwiches on this puppy, as well as a few warmed po’boys with toasted bread and turkey and ham.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Awesome griddle!
  • Great griddle
  • Otherwise it works fine.

This is a very good product. I think they are just a little behind delonghi in over all quality. There is nothing wrong with this griddle. It heats, it cooks, it works. However, given the choice, i would choose delonghi over bella. The overall ‘feel’ is different. If you unsure, go with delonghi. If you want the bella, you will not be disappointed.

Pros* heats quickly – you can feel the heat immediately, and flicking a few drops of water onto it will let you know when it’s heated throughout, which only takes 60-90 seconds* large cooking surface – you could only fit 6 pancakes on it if they were small, but 4 fit easily (staggered), and there was room in between themcons* heats unevenly (in a way you can live with, but it’s still uneven) – i made pancakes and each pancake had a stripe on it (from the heating element underneath), so each pancake surface ranged from medium-nut-brown to almost-white but there were no burned spots or raw spots. I did preheat sufficiently (tested by flicking drops of water so i’d know when the whole surface was hot, not just spots, then spraying with olive oil and waiting another 30 seconds until the water flicks again all evaporated quickly and evenly), but this is because pancakes take a couple of minutes to cook, and the heating element does turn on again in that timeframe* the plastic frame and drip tray are plastic and feel rather light/thin, so i plan to use caution when handling them, as they seem like they may break more easilyfour stars because i’ve used it twice and it worked quickly and got the job done. Note: i did receive this griddle for free from amazon vine, but i personally have no problem giving awful ratings to products that i don’t like, and i was genuinely ok with how this one worked. If i had to buy it myself i’d probably spend an extra $10 for something better based on the other reviews, but my personal experience with this product was that it was decent. Not great, but good enough for my uses.

This is my second one, husband keeps scratching them. Cleans up very easily (fully immersible), can put on 8 eggs or 8 pancakes at one time. Love how evenly the heat is distributed and the grease catching drawer is a nice size.

I’ve been pretty happy with bella products, so despite the reviews, welcomed the chance to try out this one. It’s a pretty basic electric griddle. Big enough to cook 6 hamburger patties or pancakes with room to flip them. It’s designed so if you are using something with a lot of fat, the fat will drip into a tray that’s easy to clean. I prefer hand washing dishes, and the non-stick surface of the griddle cleans easily, and so does the tray. Because of the design it’s a little tricky to clean the edges where the tray goes, but not actually difficult. Just not as easy as the rest. Taking spot temperatures with a infrared thermometer, the temperature is fairly consistent within 10 degrees. On mine, the cooler spots were on the left hand side. Since that’s the side i start putting food on first, the timing works out pretty good.

Great deal and a great addition to my kitchen.

Can probably make 8 smaller pancakes and 3 bigger pancakes at a time. I love the temperature dial.

Just wipe it clean when done.

This is a fantastic griddle — very large surface and quite durable. Easy to clean and scratch resistant. Can handle lots of breakfast items at once.

I wouldn’t say that this griddle is actually non-stick. Things do tend to stick to it, especially in the places that heat up more. As other reviewers have noted, the heating is somewhat uneven. Still, if you learn how to handle it, the griddle can have its uses. This is obviously a low-budget product and the quality matches the price. I wouldn’t expect anything but a middling kind of performance from it. On the positive side, it is quite light and easy to carry.

I had never used an electric griddle (though i do have an electric skillet) until i received this one manufactured by bella. I was a little dismayed at first use by the smoke and smell even though i was careful to clean all dust off the surface before using but the instructions do caution that this is to be expected. After the initial use that issue did diminish and this is a serviceable, functional appliance that does work to cook food much as you would with a skillet on a stovetop. I will probably use it mostly for making pancakes and the extra cooking surface is really nice if making a big meal as skillets on the stove can be used for eggs and breakfast meats at the same time especially if you have some help in the kitchen. The directions don’t say to but i have used cooking spray with it each time i have used it as it helps with making cleanup easy. Overall this griddle seems a bit flimsy and i am not confident this will be a product that will last for years but time will tell and the price is reasonable for a shorter duration product.

This is my first electric griddle and i found it good for some foods, so-so to terrible for others. The heat distribution is uneven – the most reliable area is the center and once you figure out what to put where, it’s okay, especially for the price, (and for the convenience of being able to prepare hot food without staying in my kitchen, which feels as hot and sweaty as a crock pot during the summer. )the griddle has a slight tilt so that grease can run into a removable plastic trap and this worked fine when i tried cooking greasy sausage links. However, if you try to make eggs (or pancakes, i assume), this same tilt will drive you buggy because the eggs run. I ended up putting think potholders under the legs to stop the problem. You do need cooking spray, butter, or oil to improve the non-stick surface if you make eggs or they will stick. I found it nearly impossible to make an egg over easy without it sticking, but then, i usually break one out of four in my good fry pan. , for anything else that has any tendency to stick. The only thing i didn’t need it with was to toast bread.

My first impression of this griddle when i removed it from the packaging was that it was a toy. The metal was so thin and light. The cooking ability of this griddle reminds me of a toy as well. Not to be taken quite seriously, but enough to play at cooking. This griddle is okay if you’re desperate for a large cooking surface and prepare to work with fluctuating temperatures and hot spots. I like that the plastic borders around the griddle plate stay cool. I can easily use the handles to carry the griddle to a different location after cooking on it. The only hot spot on the handles is near where the plug was attached, so avoid holding at that spot. I even like that the plastic border is not on all four sides.

Theres nothing wrong with the heating on this grill. This is like everything else you have to let it heat up to get even heat across the grill. You just can’t plug it in and start to cook with it. I’ve had many makes of grills and they all seem to work the same, this one for the money is a good buy.

I don’t use it over 250 degrees. The biggest problem is the grease tray has developed a hole that keeps getting larger. I have not had the griddle that long. Have to be very careful because it will stick really bad unless you cook at a very low temperature.

Absolutely amazing griddle for cooking but not for what i was using it for lol because the temperature goes up and down it doesn’t stay steady at 1 steady temperature.

 the video shows me doing a test-cook of some scrabbled eggs (and it not going well). Overall, the griddle feels cheap and not well made. I had trouble with the surface temperature of the unit, and i don’t care for the design of it.

BELLA 13993 Dots Collection Programmable Slow Cooker – Excellent Quality & Pretty to boot!

My daughter bought this for christmas and it works perfectly. After the timer goes off it keeps the food warm for three hours. Perfect for those who hate standing over a stove after a long day of work.

This is an awesome little crock pot super quality and the color is fabulous. Here are the specifications for the BELLA 13993 Dots Collection Programmable Slow Cooker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 30 Minutes to 20 Hours Countdown Timer
  • Off/low/high/warm temperature settings
  • Stoneware pot and tempered glass lid are dishwasher safe
  • Large 5QT capacity fits various sized meals
  • 1 year limited warranty

It kind of stains easily but otherwise cooks perfectly.

My daughter has used this cooker and loves it. She also loves the color, her favorite. She is setting up housekeeping and really loves all the purple items she has received. She will use this quite often as she used ours a lot when here.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Pretty and functional one minor flaw
  • Excellent Quality & Pretty to boot!
  • meat came out great tasting with a nice consistency

I was deciding between the blue and the pink. Glad i got the pink, it’s like a deep orchid. It’s a nice big crock pot, will easily hold a nice size roast or a bunch of meatballs for a party. Nice and heavy, not a cheap, flimsy crock pot. It is programmable, you just have to read the directions on how to set it, although you can’t go from high to low, etc you have to stay at one temp. As long as my dinner’s done when i come home, that’s all that matters to me. Nice product, very happy with purchase so far.

I love that the crock pot turns to warm after it’s done cooking. Doesn’t seem to get too hot, that was the problem with my last crock pot. The reason i didn’t give it a five was because the lid doesn’t fit perfectly. But overall functionality seems good –and it’s cute :).

Nice looking slow cooker that performs as expected. It loses one star for me because you can’t actually program it to switch to a different heating mode after the set time period. You can just set the cooking time on either low or high – so programming is limited compared to others. The fact that you can keep this one out on the counter without feeling like its another eye soar sets it apart for me. I can deal with the programing.

Timer is fantastic and the color is yummy.

This is very attractive and i love the digital mechanism, however, it cooks slower than most crockpots. I understand it is a slow cooker, but you have to plan accordingly. Also, it does not cut off it goes down to the war mode.

I love the programmable type, they really make life easier.

I have had it now since the fall and it has been a great cooker. I have made several delicious meals and the color is perfect to match all of my green accessories. Arrived quickly after placing my order.

All three handles (2 side, 1 lid) are plastic and are off-color, but that is the only thing that i can see is wrong with it.

Simple, easy to use and functional. Don’t get caught up with all the fancy features – this one works and works well.

I like how it has a timer and when it reaches 0 it goes to the warm setting. Have used it twice now and am very happy with it. I have the matchingtoaster and coffee maker by bella and love them all.

Best crockpot i have ever used.

The meat i make in this crockpot comes out so soft and tender. I love that i can just throw dinner in it and do what i have to do for the day. My first meal in this crockpot was apple butter pork chops with sliced apples and it was amazing. The pork chops were so tender.

When i ordered this, i was told it was on backorder; i was okay with that because i wanted it either way (cuz of the color. ) it came a week later and its beautiful 😉 i absolutely could not be happier with this product.

Works great but is not programmable. You can set the timer and it will go to off, not warm which is what i was looking for. I should’ve read the review first.:) overall, it will do the trick.

Love this crockpot; especially the color; however, i did think that you could program the timer to an exact time that you wanted it to come on and go off. I guess maybe i was expecting a little too much.

Had this for a little over a year now and it is wonderful. I use the heck out of it and it has held up great, it is programmable in that you can set it for a certain time and then it reverts to warm after that.

BELLA Triple Slow Cooker and Buffet Server – Five Stars

Wife loves this outstanding triple-crock. (if mama is happy, everybody is happy.

The bella triple slow-cooker is one of the most used appliances in my kitchen now. I use it for a variety of soups, for toppings in a baked potato bar, for taco fillings, for variety of casseroles, for banana split toppings, and for keeping meals warm.

Arrived on time, works as advertised. I used it for a family party, received many compliments on how nicely it worked. Here are the specifications for the BELLA Triple Slow Cooker and Buffet Server:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • This slow cooking champion allows you to cook up to 3 separate dishes at once, while keeping food warm for hours. A must have for holidays and parties
  • 4 separate controls with 3 settings; Low, High and Warm. Giving you the flexibility to cook what you want, when you want

  • Safer and uses less energy than a stove top. Toss in ingredients, set temperature and walk away! In hours you will have 3 delicious dishes
  • Features built-in lid rests to minimize counter top clutter and ensuring safe serving

Works very well, very happy with the product.

Wonderful for our family dinners.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Winner
  • Great for smaller families or parties
  • Great crock pots

Love this versatile slow cooker. Worked wonders at the office thanksgiving potluck dinner. Kept food at perfect temp for the entire dinner. Coworkers all want one ,used it to keep hot dogs, chili and quaestor warm for granddaughter’s 2nd birthday party. It’s light enough to transport full.

Gift for daughter and she loves it.

Work out pefect, great idea for a party, get lots of complements on it i have no complants at all great product just the dealivery was slow but we had a bad ice storm.

This was a gift for my son and family. They really use it a lot and think it is great.

My sister owns an ice cream parlor. She uses it for different hot flavors. So far they are perfect for the job. Well made and presents itself well.

I have owned the red bella triple crock pot cooker for a year now. It made the holidays last year so nice. Everything was hot and ready when the family showed up. They served themselves and had many compliments about the pretty red cooker. Since then i have enjoyed making dinners in it. For nacho night i serve up beans, meat, and cheese in the pots. If i ever do have to purchase another, this will be the one i will happily purchase again.

We’ve had this one for about 5 years and it is simply a great little cooker. We can cook carnitas, beans, and queso all at once. Or we can slow cook two versions of the same dish- one spicy for me, and one mild for the missus and kids. When this thing kicks the bucket, i hope i can find one just like it.

Very happy with this purchase.

Great idea, but this unit does not keep food warm – more tepid than warm – and those lid holders are cheap looking and do not fit in place.

My brother has one and he has borrowed mine for a large party. I used mine for a dessert bar for a pot luck and it was received unanimously. It is attractive and easy to clean too.

Perfect for holidays or serving 8+ people. I have also seen these used as buffet warmers at hotels to serve breakfast items: eggs, grits, gravy, biscuits, oatmeal, breakfast meats. I have used for serving hot dips as well as buffet items: green bean casserole, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes. I love that the crocs can be washed in the dishwasher and stored in the refrigerator. I also like the lid holding feature. Word of warning, put down a dish towel if serving on a nice wooden buffet to keep condensation drips and sloppy servers from damaging your buffet. Lastly, it stores well in the box.

Everyone ii gave them to loved them.

I can do 3 dishes for a party- dips, chili, etc. Or try out 3 new crockpot recipes without having a huge amount of an unpopular new recipe. I can do a main dish and two sides and keep them warm after cooking. Easy to clean and the lid holder is convenient. Only shortcoming is that the electrical cord is short, so you have to use it near an outlet which might not be so convenient for a party.

I have to agree with others who complain about the plastic smell this gives off. I followed directions and turned it on with water in the bowls before using. The instructions said a smell was normal in the beginning, but would stop after about half an hour. I kept it on for several hours, and the smell never diminished. I also tested it on the lowest setting. The smell wasn’t too bad, but the water did not maintain a food-safe temperature. I’m giving the product 3 stars because i didn’t buy it to cook food, but to keep food warm through a party. At the middle setting, it didn’t smell too bad (the smell of the food masked it), and the food held at a safe temperature for the duration of the gathering, so for my purposes, it was acceptable.

Great for our gatherings we have.

I love this gorgeous triple crockpot.

BELLA 13839 Dots Collection 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker, Great lil’ coffee makerand attractive too!

I’ve had all the expensive fancy coffee pots, and i hate those, so a couple years ago we went back to the typical normal coffeepot. I’ve been buying the cheap $20 ones, but i wanted something with color and an auto shut off. This teal color is so pretty and perfect against my all white cabinets and backsplash. It’s made very well for the price, too. It’s so much better than my old $20 coffee maker, and it looks pretty sitting on the counter.

The warmer keeps coffee plenty hot, and the heating timer is a great feature (that way you don’t accidentally boil a pot down to some kind of primordial ooze if forgotten). It has a timer to automatically start making coffee at a specific time (if it’s set and you remembered to put in the grounds and water). So far it hasn’t let me down.

I have had this coffeemaker for less than a month, and overall it’s ok. The best thing is that it brews a very mellow enjoyable cup of coffee. That’s enough to make me want to keep it. In addition, the design is fun and i am thrilled that it fits in my appliance corral (which means the measurements online are incorrect: actual are 13 11/16 inches high, 8 1/8 inches wide, 9 1/8 inch deep). Maybe i am a little dense, but i don’t think that programming a coffeemaker should require keeping the manual handy weeks after beginning use of the appliance. The controls are counter-intuitive to say the least. However, my main complaint concerns the carafe which is extremely fragile. My previous coffeemaker (which lasted at least 10 years), had a plastic rim around the lip of the pot which made it last the lifetime of the machine. A good thing since these carafes are not universal, must usually be ordered from the manufacturer, and by the time you pay shipping, you might as well buy a whole new appliance. A replacement carafe for the bella dots costs $30 plus change.

Key specs for BELLA 13839 Dots Collection 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker, Red:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Removable filter
  • Convenient pause and serve function
  • 2 hour keep warm function so your coffee doesn’t get cold
  • Automatic shutoff for your safety
  • 2 year limited warranty

Comments from buyers

“OK coffeemaker-water gauge is annoying
, Splash of Color for the kitchen.
, So many pluses for this model

Coffee 6 cup coffee maker for the past year and for the past year my friends have been making fun of my tiny coffee maker. I absolutely love my bella and people who come over love the color and the design of it. The first time i used it i had forgotten i had brewed coffee, i have 3 boys under the age of 5 and i babysit anywhere from 2 to 4 extra kids every day, it’s not uncommon for me to forget that i was doing something for myself once i get busy with the kids. With my old coffee pot i’d forget i had made some and when i would remember i’d forget how long ago it was. With the bella it tells you how long ago it was brewed and often times i’ll see the timer and remember i need coffee to keep me nice and able to keep up with all the kids. I haven’t used the preset timer to automatically start the coffee in the morning simply because sometimes i want a butterbeer from starbucks instead. The bella coffee maker isn’t anything super fancy but it does the job and looks super neat. I love the color and it goes great with my bright spring colored kitchen.

It was good while it lasted, about 1. It was used heavily by two coffee addicts, so it definitely wasn’t just sitting around. I cleaned it a few times per the manual’s instructions, but the most recent clog isn’t budging. I opened it up to manually clear out the tubes, but lost the motivation pretty quickly. Too busy and i have several other manual coffee makers for weekends anyway. It definitely looks awesome. I had the gunmetal and it was very nice. User interface is different, but easy and intuitive enough.

Beautiful bellaevery time i make a pot of. Coffee i have to say it out loud in an exaggerated itallian accent ‘ballisimo, bell- an’. My kids banter back too, they know how serious mom kea out her coffee, and this is the best machine i’ve ever owned hands down.The quality is superb- machine is sturdy, stylish, got a million bells and whistles functions, flows that pretty bluish led hue, and keeps the coffee hot-‘hot for at least 2 hours before auto shut off. Amazingly affordable and the glass carafes is 3x thicker than anything else out there on be market- this has been lneodmy favorite gifts to myself. Don’t hesitate- indulge yourself. Don’t know if there was a pricing mistake but i purchased mine brand new thru prime for less than 35$ -.

Buy it for looks and you will be happy with it. I have multiple colors in my kitchen so it is perfect to look at. Do not use the supplied filter, you will have coffee everywhere because it does not strain through the bottom. You must buy paper filters to use this coffee maker. The buttons are a joke, i am not sure that they even do anything to change the outcome. The 1-4 or the strength is the same no matter what buttons i push. Since i use really good coffee and really good water, the outcome is really good. Again, buy it for looks, you won’t be disappointed. The price point is perfect too.

This coffee maker looks great and is relatively easy to set up and operate. It allows you to set an automatic brew time which comes in handy. Overall materials are nice and it looks neat in our red color coded kitchen. My only complaint was the time was a bit screwy to set up. No regrets at the moment and look forward to using this coffee maker for years to come.

This makes a good cup of coffee. Makes 9 1/2 cups in 9 minutes. Easy to set up, looks very retro. I just wonder how long it will last. I have had many coffee makers in the past and none of them lasted a year. We have bought the cheapest $8. 00 coffee maker to the most expensive and the same result.

Our last coffee maker finally died after five years. Coffee that had served us well despite the relatively low average reviews. But, halfway through a brewing cycle, it just stopped. I wanted a higher quality model, a step up, but my wife and i debated what that would mean and if it were worth it. It clearly looked nicer, more stylish, but it was a bit of risk in feature set. That pretty much sums up my response still after having it for a few months. If you have red kitchen appliances this really is a good fit. Wonderfully combines a retro look with contemporary flair. I’m really happy with it every time i look at it. But, it’s there to make coffee. And i’m not quite as happy with it for that. There’s some different settings that change the boldness of the brew, which i guess is about how quickly the water goes through the grounds.

I am so in love with my bella. It brews in about 10 minutes and the coffee is omg hot. Easy to fill with water and clean as well. I like the automatic shutoff. It doesn’t take long to reheat the coffee when you turn it back on after it has cooled either. It has been by far the best coffee maker i’ve had. I’m an all day coffee drinker and have killed several machines but this one is really standing up to the challenge.

Matches my terra cotta stamd mixer. Less 1 point for following-water mark inside, condensation put out far less coffee that the water measured, wished the inside was either fiberglass heavy duty glass or stainless steel. Pluses- retro design, lid snaps shut, permanent filter, 3 strengths of coffee to make, toner, programable, count down 2 hour timer, beeps when ready, beeps when count down timer is up. Coffee makers generally don’t have a long life. If this one doesn’t last, it would probably be the only model i would replace with another one because of the features mentioned.

We really like this coffee maker, and will buy again when the current one goes. The appliance looks amazing, cleans easily, brews good coffee (on the two bean setting). It’s easy to use, especially after reading the manual. There are only two drawbacks that we’ve found; it takes 10+ minutes to brew a full pot and the coffee is very hot. Pros, great coffee, cleans easily, looks amazing, wears great.

Okay, it was the color that sold me. Perhaps it is a little difficult to fill with water. I had to be moved out from under the cabinets since the top needs room to open in order to pour the water into the inside. In order to use the pot to pour correct amount of water, it needs to be empty before i pour cold water into it. But i just love the turquoise color. Just ordered a teal can opener. I love all the pretty colors in my kitchen. I’m not one for the stainless steel or matching white appliances.

We have had and worn out two similar better known brand name coffee makers in the past 6 years. Bought this one because it had better reviews than those better known brands with similar machines. We have had this over a month now and ihave no complaint. Unlike the other two it does not leak or drip on the table when opening the top door. This is also by far the fastest of the three starting to brew almost immediately. As i expected my wife was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of our teal unit.

For all coffee lovers, i understand there are ‘better’ ways to make coffee, i. French press/pour over, but i love drip coffee nonetheless and its convenience. I also drinks lots of coffee so those other methods can deter me from wanting to make coffee. With that said, i really like this coffee maker. First, i am very pleased with the design. Something about having a unique coffee maker besides mr. Coffee standard black is just pleasant. However, more importantly, is that it actually makes good coffee.Three different types of brew settings is nice when you make different roasts (dark, blondes, mediums, etc.

This has been a great coffee maker. The programming works great, the reusable filter is easy to clean, and it looks really cool in person. I mostly just use it to make one cup at a time, so it hasn’t gotten a ton of use in the year or so i’ve had it, but i have minimal complaints with its functionality. Probably the only thing i’d say is that the buttons and programming can feel a little complicated outside of your normal setting, but that’s probably solved by paying better attention to the instructions.

I took a chance with this bella dots and am happy so far. The pot is easy to clean and the water reservoir is easy to fill. This is pretty much itfor a coffee maker as far as i am concerned. Coffee makers i have owned over the years this one heats the waterhotter then others i have owned making for a better cup of coffee. Overall a inexpensive decent coffee maker that produces a nice hot pot of coffee the way it should be.

I got this to replace my amazing coffee maker. I got a different filter basket for this one i don’t like them with a hard plastic bottom i like the screen to be on the bottom too. I must say i am a snot with my kitchen stuff and firmly believe you get what you pay for so for me to say this inexpensive coffee maker is awesome i truly mean it.

After our old coffee maker burned out, i thought it would be a simple thing to just go find a replacement. Well, we went through 3() different replacement purchases before deciding to try this one out. Mainly because my wife liked the pretty colors (i know, i know). I was skeptical but, it turns out, this is a great coffee maker.Brews hot, adjustable flavor settings really make a difference, and it brews a better tasting cup than our old $100+ cuisinart. Plus, it looks great on our counterthe controls for the timer are a bit confusing (and not explianed very well in the manual), but once you figure them out, it works fantastic. If it lasts even half as long as our old one, it will be money very well spent.

I love coffee and this makes a great cup. I can see they didn’t just make a colored coffee pot. They put some thoughtful additions into this product. Like the way the pot does not dribble when poured or the way the grind filter sit in its holder. Just so, and you can not close it if its seated wrong. This helps avoid messy mistakes. I should know, i have done it many time before.

I am the wife of the purchaser, received as a gift from him and i love it. I use disposable filters, but have on occasion busted out the re-usable filter as back-up, nice to not have to resort to paper towels. Also, this machine is so easy to use it actually stuped me at first, i kept trying to figure out the catch. Nothing beats a cup of brew. As a nurse, i drink alot of coffee.

I’m not used to such a slow coffee maker. My old coffee maker made a 12 cup pot in 5-10 minutes. This one seems to take 15-20 to drip a whole pot. I expected it to be faster with the good reviews. I guess everyone ordering these have never used a better quality coffee pot. If you’re coming from some cheap dollar store protecter brand or cheap walmart mr. Coffee junk than this is probably the best to you. If you’re used to bunn or genevia than this is going to be a huge drop in quality. Now, onto the good and why i gave it such a high score. And i like the buttons and the blue screen. I can be patient and wait an extra 10 minutes or more for it. If i’m in a hurry, i’ll just go to the coffee shop on my way out.

I had an old hand-me-down from my grandmother for the last 5 years. When it finally broke, i went searching for something similar; simple and not too fancy. However, when i spotted the bella dots collection, my mind changed. I was originally attracted by the color options, but once i started looking into the actual machine i was hooked. The coffee maker has a timer (which i have never had before), a clock, auto cleaning function, brew strength option, and a flow stop function when you pull the carafe out (which i am sure many machines have, but i have never had before). Perhaps i am so enamored by the functions because i have never had any of them before, but beyond that it is very stylish. The water reservoir is easily filled; it’s nice and big, essentially the entire width of the machine, so you aren’t trying to pour the water into a little space. The only thing that i wish were different is that the timer is for 1 time, you have to remember to set it every day.

BELLA Diamond Collection 12 Cup Programmable Coffeemaker Turquoise – my opinion

Had the first for only little over year and the burner ‘cracked’ when i was prompting a cleaning. I reordered as i do like the unit.

I bought this coffee maker because i thought it was of italian design. But then when reading the pamphlet i realized it seemed to be of canadian origin. I like everything about this appliance. The color, the cupcake gold filter; the programable features,and it makes good hot coffee in a reasonable time. I bought it about a month ago. Of course i can’t speak of it’s reliability. But like most in this price range(about$40. 00) there is a lot of plastic. If you follow the directions you will enjoy tour morning java.

The machine is ok but certainly not worth the premium price over the lower priced products that do the same thing for under $20.

First time ever that i have fallen in love with a coffee maker. It looks so stylish and brews perfect coffee every time. I do use a paper filter in the filter basket. It’s the ‘fanciest’ coffee maker i’ve ever had and i absolutely love it.

Looks brand-new and works perfect.

This coffee maker looks awesome and works great.

  • This one really fit the bill and it looks great. It’s easy to set up and use and
  • Love It!!!!!

This is beautiful & makes good coffee, but mine was obviously used-cracked and glued-which i wasnt made aware of at the time of purchase. I didnt pay refurbished price.

Good if you prefer form over function. Looks great on your countertop.

Purchased this product for my stepmother. This product has been working great for the past month and can brew on a couple of settings. The carafe pours without a spill.

Settings are easy n convenience.

Matches all my other small appliances.

The place to pour the water is a bit narrow but that’s not a dealbreaker.

We remodeled our kitchen last month and we needed a programmable, white coffee maker. We wanted something different. This one really fit the bill and it looks great. It’s easy to set up and use and has some extra features like the cleaning setting and the auto shutoff that we really like. And, it brews a nice pot of coffee. We might buy the purple one next time.

Excellent coffee maker, love the timer. Top of the instrument is chrome like so dust is easily visible. The instructions state to unplug after using which is weird but whatever.

I got this for my son and his fiancé for christmas an. They love everything about it. The color and style of it fit great into their place in northern california. Could not find this one style or color anywhere but amazon.

Love all the color options, even though i was looking for white. It looks like an expensive coffee machine.

Love this coffee maker that looks great in our kitchen.

12 cup

Love it and it tastes great. I like my coffee strong and there is a setting to get just what i want out of the beans.

The buttons are a little loose making it feel like a cheap product. I gave it 5 because it does work and the look is nice. I like the little coffee grind holder inside. Gives you the option of not having to use a filter.

This coffee maker takes a long time to make a pot of coffee and the metal bands on the front of the pot are coming loose already. We are not impressed and are looking for another pot.

Makes a great cup of coffee. Easy to use and looks good in our kitchen.

I am very pleased with this coffee maker. It took me a moment to figure out just how to operate it but it makes coffee quite well.

Looks very nice for the price. Have been using it for two months with no issues.


Works great just wish there was a window to see how much water is being put in.

This canadian made product delivers a top notch cup of coffee time after time. Attractive on kitchen counter and works great every time.

It’s not teal, it’s bright blue.

The clock portion stopped working after having it for a little over a year. The timer doesn’t work and i can’t select a different brewing cycle anymore.

BELLA 12 x 12 inch Electric Skillet : Love this little skillet

I absolutely love this electric frying pan. Very easy cleanup with a paper towel. Light weight and arrived before its scheduled time. Could not have been happier with the product or the shipping.

I’ve used this pan twice, and it’s marvelous. Non-stick pan heats up quickly and cooks perfectly. It doesn’t brown like my stove-top does, like browning hamburgers, but that’s okay. Bacon, onions, peppers cook like i expect. Easy to clean when i run the cooled pan under faucet water, and everything glides off. Or, i just put the pan into the dishwasher. I use metal instruments with it, and so far, no scratches.

This a futuristic break thru. I love ituse to make hamburgers, pancakes, grilled chicken breasts, steak, fried rice for a quick party or cook-out. Fits in the kitchen not taking a lot of spaceno-grease.

Just that the coating for nonstick is dented in the middle. But the job is getting done perfectly.

Great price for a great skittet.

BELLA 12 x 12 inch Electric Skillet with Non-Stick Coating BPA Free : I used it to cook my daily meals. Actually baked biscuits; it cleans without scrubbing. Boil spaghetti in it, drain and add a meat and sauce and its a one pan dinner. Well worth what i paid for it.

I cooked brown rice in this skillet and it turned out great. I had to add a little more water to it than cooking it in a sauce pan.

Have used it a few times now. Bought it to use on our boat with the generator. It’s nice having eggs and pancakes on the river. Cooks evenly and cleans up easily.

Just the right size for one or two people.

Looks great and priced right. Rapid delivery on this item.

Small skillet – just what i wanted.

I’m not one to review, but i can’t help myself with this product. My mom loved her electric skillet and used it all the time. I used mine occasionally, usually preferring a crock pot. I think browning meats and veggies adds a lot of flavor to dishes. And with this electric skillet, everything browns beautifully without sticking. And clean up is a breeze (it’s even fully submersible). Some reviews indicate that there is no lower temperature settings. There is a huge stay warm region on the thermostat dial, and you can dial it down to where is barely melts butter or turn it up to a screaming sear and everywhere in between.

I am most pleased with this frying pan. I would recommend it to anyone looking for one.

The product is all i would like it to be.

I fried some chicken strips yesterday. Didn’t spatter oil everywhere. Some spots cooked hotter than others, but no big deal. Poured remaining oil into a can and pan just rinsed clean.

I bought this skillet after weeks of very careful research on amazon and other sites. I have been totally pleased, in all ways, with this well-built, well-designed skillet. As with all electric skillets, the heating element goes around an under-pan tub. The element is evenly distributed–about equidistant from the outer edge to the pan’s center. The heat from the element is very evenly dispersed throughout the cooking time. The control is temperature-sensitive and goes on and off as foods cook, keeping the temperature just where it should be at all times. The lid is lightweight and fits the pan very well. If i need a little steam to escape (which it doesn’t when the lid is seated), i move the lid just a bit off-center, resting it lightly on one of the handles. The pan cooks perfectly for lid-on or lid-partly-off, or lid-off applications. The handles are not scratchy at the bottom–therefore protecting my counter.

Have just used a few times since i purchased this but does the job.

Bella is a well built unit and works like a champ.

What i like best about this is that it easy to clean. It becomes not as non stick after multiple uses but to keep that dark ring from forming over the element i take baking soda and it comes right off. I used mine many times and the surface still looks good.

This completes my set of electric skillets. (i have a 6′ and a 18′) this is just right for cooking for two people. Fits 2 pork chops easily with room to move them a bit. Cleans up so well since the cord detaches. Wish i had bought one sooner.

Lightweight, excellent teflon coating, convenient size.

After i finally received the product (no fault of the seller) i am totally happy.
