Black & Decker CO100 Spacemaker Traditional Multi-Purpose Can Opener – My 2nd time.

The features of the can opener are very good, but the mounting leaves a bit to be desired. My older kitchen cabinets have over an inch of ‘lip’ extending below the bottom shelf. The spacers provided with the can opener are insufficient to meet that depth of mounting. I wound up having to use a small block of wood. That’s no problem for me, but it could be for someone else. For me, it was annoying but not a show-stopper.

I used a 2×4 piece of wood, cut to the diam. Of the top of the can opener. Took a piece of paper put on top of the can opener & poked holes in the paper were the screws go into the can opener. Pre-drill the holes in the 2×4, put screws in the holes & screwed the block of wood to the top of the can opener. Put under counter & screwed down with (4)drywall screws. They will hold can opener firmly, but will not go all the way through the 2×4. Hope this will help someone.

My earlier model finally gave up the ghost after almost 20 years. This model has some differences that i like and some that i don’t like. For example, the handle on the can opener portion lifts upward – requiring that i mount it closer to the front of my cabinet that my previu=ous model and i don’t like this as well. However, it does allow for easier cleaning of the sharpener parts that contact items in the can than my earlier model did. I definitely like the under cabinet mount that leaves counter space available for other uses. I’m counting on the same dependability that my earlier model gave me.

Bought this to replace my gizmo, which really did not work that well. Did have some trouble mounting under counter, but after some engineering, mounted well, and it works great.

Purchased this in black about a year ago. I have relocated and ordered it in white. I absolutely love the features on this. It works really well and it’s fast. I especially like the knife sharpener feature. I have some specialty sharpeners. I thought this little ‘add on’ feature would be pretty poor. Worth the purchase on its own.

It replaced a can opener that had served us many years, as i expect this one will. The only thing i don’t like is the cover. Anyone purchasing this item should be aware that there must be room below it for the cover to swing open. Also, the bottle uncapper is not convenient to use. The bottle must be placed directly below the opener and pushed backwards, where as most openers, the bottle is placed at an angle and pushed down. It is not convenient to use the opener on the new model as our toaster sits on the counter below it. It does, however, open cans quite well – the reason for the purchase.

  • Works GREAT
  • starting trouble
  • It’s been woroking great so far

Our old b&d can opener finally gave out so i was looking for a new one that i could mount under the cabinet. My wife loves the door that covers the cutting head as it just looks better in the kitchen. The unit is powerful and is relatively quite. The cutting head is easy to remove and clean when necessary. I read quite a few reviews that mentioned that this unit was difficult to mount. Whenever you are dealing with an appliance that is going to be mounted under a cabinet it will always take some modification to make it fit properly. Many of the new cabinets are recessed as much as 2′ from the bottom of the cabinet face. This requires mounting wooden blocks under the cabinet to make an under cabinet appliance fit flush with the bottom of the cabinet base. The small plactic spacers that come with the unit will never make up for that much of a gap.

This product was harrdto find none of the stores near me carried any space saver can openers so i went here the product works great power is fine opens ans wiith no problems easy to operate my problem was with installation tthe screws sent were not long enough by an inch and when i called black & decker for help they said they did not have screws that long go and by some seriously then i asked about a credit or partial refund something for the hassle and was laughed at so when i went to lowes and home depot i was told the screws were an odd size they did not have what i needed and had to go to a specialty store to get the screws i needed and 12 dollars for 4 screws and i got what i needed so be warned if you have thicker older cabinets beware.

I like the space saver feature. I do not care for the fold down door, it gets in the way of large (160z. I have had black & decker spacemaker openers in the past and have been happy with them. This one is fine except for the fold down feature.

I ordered the black/decker under the counter can opener. When the old can opener went out unable to find one at our local stores, did a search on amazon and found the black/decker. It arrived in short time, ordered it about a year ago has worked as expected have had no problems. The problem was in installing had to be modified due to the fitting under the cabinet i could not do this myself therefore a friend who is handy and likes wood working had no problem doing this, otherwise i would have had to return the product. Works good and like the drop down lid which hides the cutting blade.

Nice opener , would recommend.

Com process, super deal, and availability for this unit were enough to sell me, but there were also other factors. Initially i was becoming desperate as there were very few choices and none locally on this island out in the middle of the pacific ocean. First i needed a replacement for my 15 year old underconter machine. Second nothing that sets on the counter is welcome in my kitchen unless there is no other way. Third i read all of the reviews of all existing in the market place machines. Nobody really liked any of them for a variety of reasons not related to opening cans. Fourth the reviews of this machine by all concerned were better than for other machines. The bag ripper and sharpener are wasted on me i am far too tall to use them and the sharpening steel and fillet knife are too handy anyway. Yes sharpening steels work really well as they leave the perfect edge for paper and meat when used on carbon steel blades.

I have had three automatic can openers in the past by black and decker. I am not as pleased with this one. The negatives are:1) the door in the front that covers the actual cutter is clumsy and gets in the way of the can being opened, and2) the cutter is placed too high on the opener and it is hard to get the can under it to begin cutting. Sometimes new designs do not compare with the old ones.

Our old b&d spacemaker finally gave it up so had to purchase another one. Of course the holes didn’t match up to the new one but that was not all that important. The first of two drawbacks i had during installation was i had to add several spacers (including a couple from the old opener) in order for the door to open and close. The cabinet has a rather wide and long lip. It works as you can’t notice the length of the spacers and the unit is tight and solid. The second drawback is in order to clean the blade mechinism i have to unloosen the screws to drop the unit down far enough to be able to turn it up and pull it out. I gave it a five because i don’t expect b&d to be able to cover all the different types of cabinet set ups out there. I haven’t had it very long but so far it’s been working great.

This can opener has taken me out of the dog house again.

It is not evident at first but when you fold down the hinged door it can be folded back under the unit. The first month or two i just opened the door to hand down. A small amount junk from opening the cans would fall on the door and after awhile i had to clean it. Then, i found that i could push if back another click, presto, no junk.

Alright, i read all of the reviews and actually was concerned about the installation concerns others shared. My husband and i found it to be an easy and basic installation. We were prepared for all cabinets and cabinet depths not being equal or standard in thickness and grade etc which explains mixed reviews on installation. That preparation made this a very easy installation. Other complaints above the cover being in the way or poor quality are completely false from our usage. The cover is actually a great feature, goes all the way back so its out of the way when your opening all can sizes – big and small. And when your done you close it and it looks very savvy. Absolutely ecstatic about the quality and how well it works.

Handy bottle opener

I have been handling flimsy manual can openers for years now. Cheaper ones are junk and i would hate to spend any real money on an expensive ‘kitchen store’ kind. I had a manual one that cut from that side and left no sharp edges. This was cool and all but after a year the product failed. I finally decided to try an electric opener and this under cabinet design is great. The 4 bolts that hold it to the cabinet give it rigidity and sturdiness. It is like night and day from going from a manual opener to this elecric one. I don’t know why i was using a manual opener all this time. Sort of the same feeling as to why people have land lines instead of cell phones.

I had an old one of these another brand. It was not cutting it or working well. I dont have to hold it and items do not fall off the opener. It also has the cover so you dont have to see where it is cutting the can open.

This can opener is ok but i didn’t realize the cover drops down so it you have a very large can, may have a problem with the cover getting in the way. Also, opener was missing the knife sharpening thingey on the side so not able to utilize this feature. Was already installed before we realized it was missing so just going to live with it. Would not purchase this particular can opener again.

Ok i’m no dummy, but the guy that designed this product is. Since the unit must sit forward of the cabinet face the only way to install it is to drill through the cabinet stile. (the wood face frame) now if you have cabinets the are flush on the bottom it would not be a big deal, but most cabinets have a reveal (the cabinet face frame extends below the cabinet bottom) and therefore the layout template is useless as are the instructions irelevant. My suggestion to black and decker is to move the front screw attachment hole on the unit back 3/4’s of a inch and eliminate this problem completely. Other than that it works well.

I have had a black and decker under-the-counter can opener for 20 years. I ordered this new one and it also works well. I do not like the drop down door. I know it is to make it look sleaker but it is a hassle to put the door down to open a can. The can opener works great and i love that i’m not searching in a drawer for a hand operated can opener; this style is helpful for my arthritis.

Seems to work fine as a can opener but very loud/grindy sounding motor. I really do not like the fold down front cover and would not have bought this item had the listing made it clear to me that there was a fold down front cover. The last spacesaver can opener from b & d that we had the entire opener rotated out of view for a closed, smooth surface when not in use. Also, i’ve had numerous spacesaver items – coffee makers, can openers, etc. , over the years and not a single one of them used the same hole pattern for mounting. Had to drill 4 new holes in the counter even though i was replacing a b & d spacesaver can opener with a b & d spacesaver can opener. Why the heck can’t b & d get smart about this simple stuff and use a common template for their mounting for a given product line???.Sorry, not at all impressed with this product and i’m being generous giving it 3 stars.

Built-in knife sharpener

I had a black and decker spacemaker can opener for at least 15 years – maybe longer – that just had become old and weary from a family’s use. Have had two more since that time (three if you count the one that arrived shattered and had to be returned) and both are just a shadow of the old original one. The cover never snaps into place on the first try. It won’t ‘independently’ open a can – you have to keep your finger on the button and often it takes several starts before it will proceed. I still like the concept of saving my counter space but i have to say that this isn’t what a b&d used to be.

We usually open small and medium soup cansthis can handle the big tin cans. I hold the big cans and help it around so i don’t put too much stress on the cutter mechanism.

The product works just fine. I just wish the door which covers the mechanism was easier to open and close. It is sometimes hard to get the can in the exact correct positon for the opener to operate.

Bought this to replace an old can opener that wore out. The installation was straightforward although others have mentioned difficulty with the mounting hardware. This can opener is designed to be mounted at the front edge of the cabinet for proper operation, we mounted it towards the rear and the lever doesn’t lift up all of the way. This makes getting a can started a bit finicky and we will probably move it to the front edge eventually. Take time to read the instructions and use the template to mark where the holes need to be drilled. Our cabinets are 1/2 inch thick and the hardware worked fine, even when using all of the spacers.

Black & Decker GC200 Gizmo Can Opener – Super little can opener

We have not changed the batteries yet & it does get quite a bit of usage. It’s easy to use & not an eye-sore in my kitchen.

I bought my first gizmo about 20 years ago never had a problem had to search and search for a new one a little expensive outlay but if it last another 20 what a deal.

This opener is easier for older individuals to use who have common age-related hand conditions. However, the charger set up is somewhat difficult to use. The charges do not last for a busy week’s work of use as we recycle all cans.

I agree that this product takes some getting used to. Initially, it can be difficult to mount it on a can. It takes some practice to snap it into its charger. And it takes some patience to learn how not to have the handle/blade separate from the rest of it. But it took me no time at all to figure out how best to use it. No charging issues, no problems with various can sizes. How many other functional novelties can you find in a kitchen?.I recommend this product without reservation.

Works well but recommendation to run it dead before charging makes the last opening of tuna fish cans very slow.

Mine recently died after about 12 years of use. My toddler knocked it of the counter; in fairness it wasn’t the first time it had taken a tumble of a counter, but it was apparently the last. It opened every can with minimal problems (one handed catching the edge is difficult). Even with a broken arm i could still open cans. It was easy clean and held a charge for a few days.

  • Better than expected!!!!
  • Worth 10 the money!!!!
  • It’s Black and Decker, long lasting products

But haven’t used it in over a year because it was misplaced. Don’t think i can recommend it highly.

I had one for over 10 + yrs, till my step daughter through it away because it turned kinda yellow. Wanted to through her out next. So i am hoping this one will be as good. Needless to say i love this product to anyone out there. It is worth 10 times the price. I am a 66 yr old vet and my hands don’t work as well as they did, so this is a gods send for me to have in my can opening tools.

This is the best can opener that i have even owned. I have had one for many years now, the original recently was dropped. Otherwise it would probably still work fine. I hope they continue producing this product for decades to come.

I couldn’t be happier with my gizmo. It works perfectly, every time. I tried another similar model which was extremely difficult to work. It was a frustrating experience. However, i’m very pleased with the gizmo.

So i got this can opener as gift, i was very excited after seeing it on tv. I like the gizmo because it was so small and wouldn’t be a problem storing it, or having it sitting around on the counter. However getting to open a can is another story. I have expierence many ocassion where i cannot get it grip onto the can, after several tries it finally does.Also the battery life of the gizmo seems very short – even after the first charge. So there are a few things that make this great:1. The magnet the keeps the lid from going in your food3. It has rubber grip for better holding5.

Works great, my granddaughter can use it it’s so easy.

This is the best can opener i have ever used. Had to order another tonight, mine finally died on me- a little disappointed white was not available so i had to get black. I had my original for 16 or more years. Stays charged in the under cabinet wall mount and take it off and go anywhere with it. Love these – lets hope this one lasts as long as the last one.

I have had this product for 2 years now. My sister had hers for 4 years. When my last can opener went, she recommended this to me. I would now recommend it to anyone. I even went out and got one for my aunt. I have read reviews about this product that say it is very hard to get onto the can. Once you use it a few times and realize how you should put the opener on the can, you no longer feel like there was ever a problem. I love it and recommend it to anyone.

Purchased two black & decker em200 can openers-understood price would be $39. 76 total,due to free super saver shipping-please correct my account–order 103-7592092-1573444.

Tried a few of these battery operated can openers. None of them worked out for me. First try and it opened the can with ease. Have had it a month now, and have opened every size can you can think of. Even with a small tomato paste can. After a month, it is still operating on its first charge. Very happy with this purchase.

Absolutely wonderful , works better than other cordless openers easy to use.

Cordless, hands-free electric can opener with auto shut-off

I have an older model that has the under-cabinet mount/charger and it holds cans well when they hang. The egg travels around cans very well. It’s not the strongest motor, so it runs on the slow side, but it gets the job done. I wish the raised writing was not on the face of the egg- ugly, but it’s still nice looking overall. I wish it ran on ac current directly when mounted in the under-cabinet mount. I’ve had mine for at least 6 years, perhaps more. I always keep it in the under-cabinet mount, therefore the battery has never been run down and is always on the charger. The battery lasted all these years anyway and just recently lost its mojo.

The name says it all ‘gizmo’. Can be mounted at a permanent location and yet be portable and mobil in an instant.

We have the em200, looks the same as this one. It came with an under the cabinet mount. This opener has been faithful for many years. If yours has quit or sounds like it is dying it is worth a peek inside to see what is wrong before tossing it in the trash. Perhaps a year ago or so ours has slowed down to where i have been thinking to replace the batteries. I took it apart months ago to see what it looked like inside and spotted the aa ni-cad batteries which i thought i would eventually replace, they had tabs on them but no big deal to over come. Two #1 phillips head screws to remove gets it apart. After the opener barely opened more then one can anymore i was determined to fix the can opener today. Armed with new batteries i took it apart. Take pictures of the disassembly.

I bought my first gizmo in 1987. This one just replaced that one.And that one was still working, albeit very slow. Just can’t hold the charge any more. They better not stop making these because i’ll need another in about 30 years.

Its too bad they discontinued these.

Very easy to use and maintain. I charged it up when i first got it and have been running on the same charge for about 6 months with no problems at all no matter what size can i open.

At full charge, opens up to a month’s worth of cans

The gizmo can opener is a great buy, as soon as i received it i put it to use and i’m able to open any type of can easily. I will definately recommend this product to friends and family.

It was bought for an elderly lady who has problems with holding items. It opens the cans for her and it is so light weight, she is able to hold it for that short amount of time needed to get it on the can. A breeze to put back on it’s base, it is non obtrusive also in the kitchen.

Relaced one that i previously own.

Had for a long time and it did well for years. Though after a while the blade loses its sharpness. Need to look for a new one now.

I’ve had one for almost 10 years and still works. I didn’t pay near the price they are selling for now. The main problem is the battery. After opening several cans it needs recharging. So don’t expect to open many cans at once.

It was just what i wanted and in great shape for being used.

Had it about a month now and it works just as it says. Like i said so far it’s great little opener.

Lid release provides easy, safe disposal into a waste basket

I only have one fully functional hand and am always looking for products to help me out. This one didn’t let me down at all.

Worked great when we first got it. I was especially impressed by the fact that the unit could be completely sterilized by removing the handle and allowing it to rest face down in a pot of hot shallow water. Maybe it was my obsession with having a clean can opener that killed it; however, over the course of a few years, it became increasingly tricky to get it to open a can. Finally, only angling it a certain way and holding the handle down tightly would do it, and even then, i had to restart the process several times. At last, after spending several minutes trying to open a can and not succeeding, we threw it out.

Black & Decker CJ525 CitrusMate Plus Citrus Juicer : Using it for over a year, and still great

At first glance the juicer seems very light and flimsy (which is what i would expect from b&d). Although it’s small size is a plus for kitchen counters which are filled with so many appliances these days. It got every bit of the juice and pulp (i like a lot of pulp so i haven’t tested it with little or no pulp) and strained it automatically and effortlessly. I used to use a one of those chintzy plastic hand strainers that would clog half way through an orange, requiring further straining by hand. But this one kept pushing everything through to the pitcher. If you squeeze one or two glasses of juice a day at the price i highly recommend this. If you need to juice large amounts daily as others have mentioned this would probably give you hand fatigue and you would need a professional model costing much more. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because of it’s light construction and so not being sure how long it will last. But for under $20 it does the job well.

For the price, the citrus juicer can’t be beat. I’ve had it for about a month and fresh oj every day. It’s simple to use & easy to clean. March 2012 update: i bought this in 2008 and it still works great.

I am on the master cleanser and it requires alot of fresh lemon and lime juice. I was doing this by hand but that became a pain in more ways than one. I ordered this inexpensive little juicer and it is so wonderful. I love the way it completely hollows out the fruit. You can adjust the amount of pulp as well. Its easy to use right out of the box and very easy to clean. It only takes me 10 mins to cut the fruit, juice it and wash the juicer.

Black & decker cj525 citrusmate plus citrus juicer: i was given my original one as a gift, used it very happily for a year and a half, and then it unfortunately fell out of the cupboard and cracked the bowl. Replacement parts do not seem to be available. But that is no matter as replacing the whole unit is probably cheapest, especially with amazon prime shipping in place. “everyone knows” that fresh squeezed is so good, and this inexpensive juicer does the job. Just don’t push it too hard—it is all plastic.

  • So far, so good AFTER SEVER YEARS! 🙂
  • Juiced
  • I love this juicer and will never go back to drinking pasteurized juice

  • Large 1 liter (34 ounce) pitcher
  • Adjustable pulp control
  • Automatic self-reversing reamer with stirrer
  • Easy-pour spout
  • Small and large cones for lemons / limes and oranges / grapefruits

This is a wonderful juicer–i thought it might be too slight since it is very inexpensive, but i bought it because the brand is good so we thought we would try it. It is plenty powerful enough but the wonderful part is that it is so quiet. That is very hard to find in a juicer. We are so pleased we are buying a second one to have in reserve in case this one goes out of production by the time we wear it out–we live in florida and use it daily for about 6 months of the year when oranges are in season.

I used one of these on vacation, found out how easy they are to use and clean, and bought one. Now i have fresh-squeezed orange juice almost every day. Takes just a few seconds to rinse the parts off, and the oranges cost about the same as an equivalent amount of bottled (and inferior) juice.

Your product is the best juicer i ever owned. Price was right and it puts the expensive juicers to shame. My cuisinart never worked right from the beginning, and i paid about 3x’s the money. Your product is highly recommended by me. ********************************.

Found that the juicer works quite well. Has strong enougn motor, and both the reversable action, and the modifiable pulp control were great. Flimsier than my older work horse, it remains to be seen how it holds up. 95, it doesn’t have to last forever.

Bought this over a year ago, and been using it regularly – definitely daily in summer. It has been performing very well, and thanks to this, we stopped buying orange juice from stores – we buy oranges and make our own juice. It is so easy that even my kids make juice themselves. The bi-directional rotation causes the juice to extracted without leaving much behind. I would recommend this to anyone that likes fresh squeezed juice. I bought one for us, and one for parents, and no problems on either one.

It’s a little clunky to use, but sure saves your wrist, especially if you have an entire bag of oranges or limes to squeeze. Pulp strainer is kind of useless,and tends to get clogged with seeds and pulp. I just removed it entirely, then i use a wire strainer when i’m done. I’ve had mine for 4 years and it still gets a pretty good workout.

After much juicer research, i purchased the cj525 with cook’s illustrated’s high marks being the deciding factor. Unlike some reviews seen here, i’ve found this juicer to have all the torque i need; whether it be grapefruit, various oranges, typical meyer lemons or persian limes- i’ve not had any issues. My main concern was the ability to juice tiny key limes; would the reamers be too large to facilitate?.Yes, they are too large but using two hands to hold the key limes steady proved to work just fine. Not as comfortable as one-handed orange work but much faster than a hand reamer which had become tiresome long ago. I wonder why i didn’t buy this sooner, especially with all the time i’ve saved (zesting the key limes notwithstanding). Regarding the pulp filter– i typically do not rely on it and simply keep the filter wide open, which still filters the seeds. Afterward, depending on the context like key lime pies or champagne mimosas, i just pour the juice through a fine strainer and i’m good-to-go. To sum up: this has provided much more torque than i expected, and i’ve pushed fairly hard.

To whoever said this was a “toy”. Sure, the motor on this sounds weak, but it does exactly what it’s supposed to do, and easily. I made 32 ounces of orange juice in 15 minutes. Anyone who’s made orange juice before knows that it takes a lot of oranges to make 32 ounces of orange juice. It took me 4 pounds of oranges- so exactly twice the weight of oranges, to make 32 ounces. The orange juice tasted great. It also juices lemons, limes, and grapefruits.

I have 2 black and decker citrusmate plus juicers; one for each of my homes. One house is in florida, so the juicer gets lots of use since we have orange trees. It is not an expensive item, but works great. I have given 2 as gifts and recommended them to florida neighbors. Everyone loves this juicer, and they are easy to use and clean. I also use them for making lemon and lime pies.

We have a lemon tree, so use it so often to make lemonade. Would buy it again and highly recommend it, especially because of the ability to set the pulp indicator for the desired amount of pulp.

I got this because i wanted to make freshly squeezed oj at home. This works wonderfully and i am now able to enjoy fresh oj anytime i want and not having to pay premium price at breakfast joints. I got this product awhile ago and it is still working beautifully.

I have a lemon tree so have more lemons than i know what to do with. I did not have a juicer so purchased this from amazon so as to juice the lemons. I did make a couple of lemon pies. I like this juicer very much. It is easy to set up, easy to clean plus you have a choice of lots of pulp to no pulp. The pitcher has measurments on the side so it is very easy to just squeeze the amount of juice needed. I highly recommend this juicer.

This is actually the first product review i have written, but i was so pleased with this product that i just couldn’t resist writing about it; best $25 i have spent in a while. If you are someone who enjoys a cocktail now and then, this is a must-have for your bar. I make mojitos with some frequency in the summer, and i swear i was getting carpal tunnel syndrome from squeezing so many limes with a manual juicer. This juicer makes quick, easy work of juicing citrus fruits, and i have also been really impressed with the quantity of juice that is extracted. I love that it has two different sized reamers for different sized fruits. It also has plenty of power – something that took me by surprise (despite the great reviews, i was expecting the motor to be pretty anemic; not so). The other great feature is that it senses the pressure when you put a fruit on the reamer and starts and stops automatically. Not difficult to clean either. Can’t recommend highly enough.

I’ve had this for a few weeks now. I juice 2 lemons every morning with it. On occasion, i’ve also juiced some oranges. It works very well, but is sometimes a little tempermental on the reverse action. But, it sure is saving my arthritic wrists.

Juices citrus goods very well. Far superior for doing that versus most every other device and i’ve tried a vitamix and a jack lalane style version. Lemons, limes oranges = this is the way to go.

This little citrus juicer works like a charm. It isn’t incredibly fast, but when you consider the price, it is a purchase i don’t think you’ll regret. I made lemonade with a dozen lemons in 15 minutes. If it takes you longer than that to make lemonade, then you’re most likely missing digits from your hand or limbs from your torso.

I purchased this juicer 5 years ago thinking it was so cheap that even if it only lasted a few months it would be a better value than my previous two juicers. It still works as well as new. My only complaint is that the container warped when i washed it on the bottom shelf of my dishwasher with the sanitize cycle. I just bought another one and never did that again. I’m sad to see this model is no longer available and hope that the newer b&d models are as good as this one.

Black & Decker GM200 Gizmo Mixer : Great quality

I’ve always had trouble with the cords on hand mixers, and this solves that problem. It has the same amount of power as a hand mixer when on high, but could use a middle speed (instead of just high and low). A big plus is the swivel head so i was able to switch the hand hold without changing attachments or switching to a different appliance.

Our gizmo was purchased from amazon in 2006 for $25. It was plugged in 24 hours a day, no problem. The problem was a child who took it off the wall and began fooling with the charger and female plug. He managed to break the plastic piece that holds male plug in the unit. I spent hours to no avail to buy a replacement part. Sears carries 31 part for the gizmo but the male plug is not available. True the persons who have old machines can ask what they wish but you would be a fool to pay $200. 00 when there are many similar items for sale by hamilton beach and other manufacturers as low as $16. To pay 200 dollars for a 25 dollar item is simply stupid. B&d has a terrible web site and their service people are useless.

Black & Decker GM200 Gizmo Mixer

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.

I wish this was still around. I received it as a wedding gift but cannot find it now.

Works great easy to use and plenty of power.

Item was shipped parcel post and i never got the package. Our post office is known for putting things in the wrong box and they say their records show it was picked up at the counter on december 11th and i was in spokane, washington on the 11th. I live in a 90% native american community and if they got the slip they would have still taken the package. I am going to file a complaint with the post office but the main thing is i did not get my product for whatever reason.

Black & Decker GM200 Gizmo Mixer : This is a great mixer for small jobs. Blending eggs, blending seasonings into soups, jello and puddings.

I had picked this item up 3 years ago and placed it right next to my stove for quick mixes and other little things to help with me in the kitchen. Makes or i mean mixes the best drinks you have ever had and cleaning is easy also. So amazon your my choice for whatever i need thank you.

I don’t think deproved is a word, too bad. The gizmo is a replacement for b&d’s handy mixer. Our handy mixer died about two weeks ago, not bad after 10 years so i ordered a gizmo. Old mixer had charging contacts in holder, new one was downgraded so you have to plug in the charger. New charging contact really cheapens the product. I found a wall wart that would charge the old one so it’s going back on the wall. If i didn’t have to destroy the plastic packaging to remove the unit, the gizmo would be on the way back to amazon right now. We were always happy with the way the handy mixer handles what we used it for and i wouldn’t expect the gizmo to be less useful, just not as convenient.

My fav part is after i mix something i can sit it on it’s flat part. And the attachment can drip over the bowl or measuring cup while i get something, like more ingredients. I do think the whisk is almost too unwieldy for the power & size of the mixer. I don’t like it that i’ve had it about a year and all of the attachment are rusted & i can’t get it off. It has 2 speeds, i never use the slow. I use it mostly for making salad dressing & little things.

It has 2 speeds, i never use the slow. I use it mostly for making salad dressing & little things. ****update update, a couple mos later and all the attachments are rusted.

Second time i have owned this product.

I had the original of this product and it was great. Yes, i did have to break the egg yolk with the one beater first, before mixing or beating them so as not to chase the egg yolks around the bowl, but honestly, i do this with a regular mixer. The original had four attachments but the three with this will do most jobs i use if for. I never used my first one for heavy jobs, just quick mixing of eggs, light batters, etc. The real draw back to this newer product is that the case to the original was wired and that is what you plugged in, the mixer just popped into the case and was charged. Having to plug the cord into the bottom of the new mixer is a pain.

Had an old b&d rechargeable mixer similar and was more user friendly but it finally gave up after about 10 years of use. So for the last several months i looked for a small rechargeable mixer and finally decided on another b&d mixer. Black & decker gm200 gizmo mixer. My wife says it is comparable to use as the older style but that she wished it was more like the old unit when putting it back into the charging unit to charge. This is now done by plugging in the cord for the recharge, (old units were contact tabs with no cord to plug in. ) all and all other then the charging of the mixer she likes the new b&d mixer and hopes it lasts as long as the mixer we replaced.

I bought this as a gift for a family member. I also have and use one often. It is a very handy unit, but it would be better if the battery charge lasted longer. Handy for quick stirs unstead of using a larger hand mixer.

The black and decker gizmo cordless mixer is my favorite gadget /appliance. It keeps it’s charge and is handy to retrieve and use. I have had one for many years.

I am very pleased by this product. This is the second one that i have bought. It is easy to use and charge. I would highly recommend this mixer. The price is great and the mixer performs better than expected.

Good product does not replace a regular double whip, but is very handy for scrambling eggs, mixing drinks, etc. My only negative is that the whips are not held securely on the stand; i mounted it on the back of a kitchen cabinet door, and if i shut the door a little too fast, the whips fall of all in all, i certainly would buy it again.

Works well, hard to find,price was really good ,totally pleased.

I use this almost everyday for the past 4 years. Expensive but worth the money.

We are now on our second one of these mixers, and they last several years. This is perfect for beating and egg or mixing a whey drink. No cords in the way – great battery operated mixer. We hope black-n-decker never discontinues this product.

Works fine, once you can get it pulled out of its holding case and remember to plug it back in when you put it back. Basic operation is a wall mounted holding unit, which the hand-held mixer fits into until you pull it out to use it, with slots below that to hold the attachments that you push into the mixer to do whatever it is you want to stir or mix or whisk. This is essentially a replacement from b&d of a unit they built 15-20 years ago, which had 4 inserts (this only has three, lacking the doodad that was shaped like a large rectangle on the shaft, which was excellent for mixing stuff). The earler unit (not this one) pulled right off the wall mount when you grabbed it, this one you can’t easily pull it out until you learn to slip it out be pulling on the recharging cord. And, the earlier unit automatically recharged when you snapped it back in because it had copper connections in the wall-mounted base unit that made contact with copper connections in the mixer unit when you placed it back in the wall mount. In a step backwards, the new unit that i’m reviewing has a plug-in cord that you have to pull out of the mixer unit (it won’t run with it in) when you pull it out of the wall mount to use it, and you have to plug the recharger back in, if you remember, when you place the mixer back in the wall mount. It works well when you get it out and get it running, but the design slipped from user-friendly to user-challenging.

Convenient, easy to use, takes up no storage space. I’m sure we’ll wear this one out as we did the previous b&d mixer.

Black & Decker BLACK – I’m pretty sure a jet engine is quieter than this food

Chops and purées vegetables and nuts really well. It just takes a little longer and is noisier than i woul like.

We’re happy overall with this food processor. It’s not fancy, but it works fine and is very inexpensive. The only complaint is that it’s so darn loud. It’s so loud that we can’t use it at night for fear of waking up neighbors in the next apartment, and whenever my wife is about to turn it on she has to warn me first so i don’t mistakenly think an f-15 jet fighter just landed in our kitchen.

A bit loud, but works great. Here are the specifications for the Black & Decker BLACK:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Stainless Steel Chopping Blade, Slicer, Shredder
  • 8-Cup Work Bowl – Plent of room to work with
  • Food Chute with Pusher – Helps guide food towards the slicing/shredding disk while the processor is going, for consistent results
  • Dishwasher-Safe Removable Parts
  • Safety Interlocking System – Blades operate only when the lid is securely attached to the bowl

I like it cause it gets the job done , only thing its very noisy and pieces of veggies or cheese etc get stuck under the lid while processing but it works for me worth the money.

Noisy, but does the job well. Removing bottom center post assembly for complete cleaning can be difficult, if you don’t lube the snap-in locking clips (3) on bottom assembly with drop of olive oil, but if done, this assembly is easy to remove for periodic cleaning, since some food gets down the vertical post tube inside the blade unit. Over time, the locking clips tend to dry and become sort of frozen, preventing assembly removal. Remove this center post assembly by turning the large extended three tabs under bottom of bowl counter-clockwise. Easier to clean and use than the old and pricey cuisinart processors. Great device for making frozen banana creams with any flavors desired. First liquify one ripe banana and then add natural flavor, such as raw carob powder, then add chopped frozen bananas (into small 1/3 inch thick) slices. In no time you’ll have a tasty desert or much like ice cream snack.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Just what I needed!
  • Inexpensive and very noisy
  • Food Processor

) it doesn’t turn onthis model has two safety features. The lid has to be securely fastened and the 8 cup container has to be secured in the base. I made the same mistake and called the 1-800 number. She told me to secure everything and i proceeded to explain nicely that i had done that. She humored me and asked me to try one more time. There are tiny little buttons that have to be triggered as a safety precaution. ) you can see food stuck in the bottom external piece that you can’t get out because that piece doesn’t removeevery piece of food container is removable, including the handle. That’s what make it so easy to clean. I always warn everyone in the house that i am about to turn it on. Otherwise, i will scare the s^*t out of everyone. You are literally using it next to the wall.

Just the right size for a small kitchen. Just the right power for everyday cooking.

My old one broke and i thought i was ordering the same thing but it has new features that make it better.

Can’t say enough good things about this. Easy controls (i give it 5 *’s just for that) this processor is a work horse. I’ve given it a workout and it has not let me down. Can’t beat the price for a brand name appliance.

The item is just as described. I love it i can chop vegetables and use it for many other mixtures and blends.

As i believe other reviewers have noted, this is not a water-tight food processor. However, it works great for heavier sauces and solid foods. If you hold the lid down tightly, you can do thinner sauces with minimal leakage (remember to put the tamper in too. I make chopped salads, flours, and sliced veggies without any trouble. There are only two people in my house, so the size is perfect. If i were cooking for three or more, it might be a bit small. Note that this is not a high-powered processor. Sauces will not be the creamy smooth they are on your favorite food blogs or in cookbooks. They will be edible, but not great.

I read several reviews before i decided on this product and noticed many remarked on how loud this was. I did not find that to be true. Very easy to operate, clean and store. There is a space under the motor to store the cord so that it is out of the way. This is the first food processor i have owned that did not come with a plastic blade in addition to the steel blade. I wish it had one but hopefully the steel blade will work for making pie crusts and some cookie recipes i have. Only had this product about a month so if any problems arise i will be back to list them.

I got this from a local outlet store because it was only $16. Thought i would come on amazon and review it as i usually come to amazon for reviews for purchases even if i end up buying it somewhere else. It works reallly well and i would have given it five stars except for how loud it is. I’m pretty sure a jet engine is quieter than this food processor.

I use this more than my blender. It came quickly, it works properly, it’s easy to clean. I use it to chop veggies, i’ve tried to use it to make pie dough. You have to have super cold hard butter for that to work, which i didn’t know. But it works wonderfully for making banana ice cream.

This is such a great food processor. I upgraded to a larger one and couldn’t be happier. It is a quality product that works wonderfully. I feel like i cook so much more since i got it.

I had a b&d mini processor for over twenty years that i loved. A small piece of it broke, and i was unable to find a replacement part. I read reviews of ‘better’ (i. , more expensive) brands, and chose to purchase another b&d, as it had a grating blade. It is almost identical to my old one, but with a larger capacity bowl. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

This is the perfect size kitchen food processor. It works exactly as described and i am very happy with this item.

The first thing i used this model for was to make sauerkraut. There really ought to be separate slicer/grater blades, because this combination ‘shredder’ blade leaves large pieces and much, much, smaller grated pieces, and all sized in between. Iow, the pieces are not of consistent size. I also discovered that the food chute is not level with the top, so pieces get stuck between the bottom of the chute and the side of the cover. That means that every time i use it, i have to get a kitchen knife and clean out that small area. The other thing i think is odd is that the chute is at the back of the processor, so you have to reach across to put food down the chute. The clincher, the one real annoyance for me, is the 2 foot cord. I have to move the processor to the receptacle every time i use it, while every other appliance i have has a 4 foot or better cord and i can just pull them to the front of the counter, plug in the cord, and use them.

It chops and grinds quickly and quietly.

I bought this a few weeks ago and so far it has been worth it. It rices cauliflower and shreds zucchini and carrots in a matter of seconds. I’m planning on making nut butters and milk in the future as well. It’s incredibly easy to clean, plus taking it apart and putting it back together doesn’t take long at well. The only downside is that it’s so loud. I’m a little embarrassed to use it when people are around. But it works so quickly that it really doesn’t matter because the loudness is over in a matter of seconds. Okay, follow-up review: i love it just as much, if not more. I will never shred a sweet potato again.

I cut up my vegetables for homemade soups. I also cut up fruits and vegetables for twin grandsons. I rinse off parts and wipe dry.

Black & Decker EHC650B Ergo 3-Cup Food Chopper : I love this, had my doubts but didn’t regret it at all!

I bought this for my wife about a year ago. We have a high quality food processor that it great but it takes up counter space and it is a hassel to take it out. Therefore, we only really use it when we have a big batch of something. My wife tried a couple of those ‘slap shot’ devices, but they always would break after a short time. I had tried another motorized mini-chop that cost about $14 at a local store but it just didn’t work very well. For $20 i thought i would give the b&d a try and now we both use it and love it. It is really small and light weight and it is very easy to grab it and use it. Clean up is super easy too, i just add some water to the bowl and a drop of soap and let it run for a couple of seconds. I rinse out the bowl, wipe down the motor housing and i’m good to go. It does a great job at chopping and it offers a lower speed which is great for chopping succulent vegetables like green peppers.

Love it, bought one for me and one for my parents. I first purchased a hand food chopper thinking that an electric one would be annoying because i don’t have conveniently placed electrical outlets in my old weirdly designed kitchen, and i was worried it would be difficult to clean. The bottom parts are dishwasher safe. The top part you can take a paper towel with some soap or a sponge to and clean it very easily and i am one of those people often lovingly referred to as a ‘germaphobe’. The outlet thing – i actually fill it up and stand near an outlet next to my fridge because it is so much more convenient. I find myself cooking more because i bought it. I dropped it last time i used it so next paycheck i will be buying another one. It’s plastic so don’t drop it. I cracked the plastic bottom when i dropped it.

I got this hoping i could dice and chop things like onions, celery, water chestnuts, carrots, bell peppers. I kind of assumed that this would end up pureeing the vegetables instead of chopping and dicing but i’m lazy so i took a chance on this bad boy. Jeez was i sure wrong about the puree part. I noticed the blades are not so close together so i thought that maybe diced chunks may come out better and it sure turned out right. All you have to do is pulse the food chopper until the desired size is attained. The 3 cup bowl comes in handy too. Be careful when washing the blades. I learned when i first washed the blades and sliced my finger deeply.

Black & Decker TMB3 Under Cabinet Heat Guard : a moment of silence please

It’s great to have toaster oven off the counter.

Wev’e had this installed for years with no issues what so ever. Easy to install with no problems.

I already had a black & decker toaster oven but not the equipment to hang it under my cabinet. I have little counter space so this heat guard was just what i needed. It arrived promptly and fit perfectly.

This product works exactly the way we wanted. We’ve had no problems at all with heat on our wood cabinets and the toaster oven has stayed secure in it’s holder. The only thing that i’m not crazy about is the appearance ove the product. It’s kind of clunky looking. The model that works the with new b&d toaster ovens is much more attractive.

  • It’s great to have toaster oven off the counter
  • Great Fit
  • Cabnit heat guard

Black & Decker TMB3 Under Cabinet Heat Guard, for use with Toast-R-Oven

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Mounts under the cabinet; provides full hood to protect cabinets
  • Adjustable mounting bracket fits many different cabinet styles
  • Installs quickly and easily, all hardware and instructions included
  • Medium gray color coordinates with Black & Decker models TRO200-TRO600
  • Measures 4-1/4 by 16 by 10-3/4 inches

This is a must have to keep your toaster oven off the counters. I just ordered a new black & decker toaster oven, and it is white. This mount is black, so i bought high temperature spray paint and painted it white. It now matches all my kitchen appliances and the new toaster oven. One draw back of this item is that if you have a heavy coat of laquer on your cabinets, the heat that is given off from this hood can soften the coat of laquer,.

Wish a bought another one before they stopped making this one. Used one for years and years and finally the upper element burned out. I hoped it would go on forever.

I didn’t really have any choice if i wanted to free up very valuable counter space – this is the only toaster over with the hood, there are no other models, and it does the job fine. The toaster oven itself isn’t that great, but, like i said, unless i want it to sit on the counter, i don’t have a choice. Holds the toaster oven just fine, and doesn’t heat up the cabinet it’s attached to.

Four screws into the bottom of your cabinets, and then slide the toaster in. The included template blows like they usually do though. Throw the instructions away. Just drill 4 holes in the right spot after a trial fit by hand.

The rack supports the toaster oven under the cabinet, freeing up counterspace for other uses. It is easy to slide the toaster out for cleaning, if necessary. Serves exactly the purpose intended.

Bought this 4 years ago to get the toaster oven off the counter. Still working great and adds space to counter use.

After literally 11 years of everyday use my b&d under counter toaster r oven has died this morning. This toaster oven is the hardest working appliance in our home, and it’s lived a good but hard life. This toaster took years of abuse, slammed oven door, toast on/off switch subjected to excessive force, and the poor light/medium/dark dial (can you say too much torque)?. Just minutes after this great toasters demise, i am looking to purchase a similar model.

I’ve had my toaster oven mounted under my cabinet for about 10 yrs now. I take it with me each time i move because i like it so much. To have it up off of the countertop makes a huge difference in space. But you’re really limited to the selection of toaster ovens.

Black & Decker TRO490B 1200-Watt 4-Slice Countertop Oven and Broiler : Didn’t last a full two years, but company has good customer service

I’ve had black & decker toaster ovens for many years. Since i loved the last one i had, and used it to death, it made sense to me to buy another. The family has gotten smaller over the years so i got this model, definitely smaller than the last one. It’s a perfect size for 1 or 2 people. It heats up extremely fast and does an excellent job, even on toast, which was the only shortcoming of my old b&d toaster oven.

This is a nice, more reasonable sized toaster oven, that does a very good job of grilling and broiling. I wish you didn’t have to reset the toaster settings every single time you make toast, though. That kept it from being 5 stars, as i like every thing else about it. The crumb tray is nice and big, and the styling is attractive. It doesn’t get blazing hot on the exterior, and has a nice big glass door. But if you are a toast person 90% of the time, i might keep looking.

Black & Decker TRO490B 1200-Watt 4-Slice Countertop Oven and Broiler with Removable Crumb Tray, Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 1200 watts of power with variable temperature control, toast shade control and cooking functions to bake, broil, toast and keep warm
  • Extra-deep curved interior fits 4 slices of toast or a medium pizza or casserole
  • 30-minute countdown timer features ready signal bell and stay on function
  • Removable crumb tray and dishwasher-safe accessories offer quick and easy cleanup
  • Measures 10-3/4 high by 18-1/10 long by 13-1/3 inch wide; 9-4/5 pounds; 2-year limited warranty

The toaster oven is really nice in appearance it works well has a good variety of settings and we are very pleased with the product.

My only criticism is that the door just flings itself down in a clumsy way and hits the counter top hard. The heating is somewhat even but for a cheaper oven this works quite well. It looks decent but it was much bigger than i anticipated.

I was looking for a black toaster oven and this one was perfect for my needs. However, one complaint i have is the door. It just flops open, there is no restraint on it. I prefer my old one that didn’t allow the door to fall to the cabinet but had a little spring to prevent that. Otherwise, it works just as well.

Black & Decker TRO490B 1200-Watt 4-Slice Countertop Oven and Broiler with Removable Crumb Tray, Black : We love toaster ovens in our house, and this one serves the purpose better than the last one. It doesn’t take up much counter space–we toast in it, and also bake in it. It’s just large enough to bake fish, corn muffins, etc.

I got this a few months back for my first apartment to save space and time (rather than a plain toaster and having to use the oven to heat things) and was a little skeptical because of the low price. However, this has worked out fantastically and i’ve been using it to heat up lots of things easily and quickly. I’m not a huge toast person but my roommate used it for that a lot and it was quick.

I’m not thrilled with this toaster oven for a few reasons, most of which were not discernible online. The text on the dials is small and hard to read. In the dark kitchen making toast in the morning they are impossible to read. The bottom knob, the timer, requires being turned past 10 minutes to get the whole toaster going, then you can wind it back the the correct spot. Annoying and inefficient, plus the act of winding the dial back will lead to breakage at some point. And it toasts very unevenly. I’ll use it until it breaks, but after this i’ll spend a little more.

I’ve been using black & decker toaster ovens for the past 15 years, and there’s a reason why i’ve stuck with the brand. Reasonably priced, the countertop oven does everything you could want it to–toast, bake, broil, etc. It seems pretty kid-friendly too, as it won’t work unless you set the temperature and the time (older models, you could just set the timer and function). It’s been a few weeks and i’m happy with this toaster oven so faredit: i have been using this particular model for 3 years (at least 10x a week) and it is still working fine.

I got this black & decker tro49b 1200 watt toaster after reading some of the good reviews, but i am not at all satisfied with the product. Within 3 months, the timer dial of the toaster was behaving erratically. Soon enough, the dial was completely fixed to one position. Since there was a 1 year warranty on the product, i called up black & decker. After calling multiple times, i was asked to send a check of $7. 5 to canada along with the power cord of the toaster. Note that i had to cut the power cord of the toaster rendering it completely useless. And, basically i have to spend almost $25 for a product that i got for $30. And that is for an untracked mail, i won’t even know if the power cut reached canada. For tracked package, i would need to spend more.

I liked this so much i got the same model for my daughter. It is small enough to fit in the corner. It’s easy to use and attractive with my black and stainless appliances.

I just recently purchased this toater oven to avoid using the conventional oven. It works well for a small toaster oven. Sits perferctly on top of the microwave. So far made french bread pizza, frozen beef patties with cheese & pepperoni, french fries, onion rings, fish sticks, haven’t toasted any bread yet. The settings are easy to manage, at this point the dials other than the timer have been at the same setting. Comes with a baking pan, but i like to also use aluminum foil for easier clean up with or without the pan. I’m looking forward to cooking other foods like burgers and fish. The instructions are simple. I say good product for the price. I didn’t give it five stars because i only had for a short time.

I have a full size oven, but do not need one as i only cook for me, and to heat a full oven is a waste of electricity. I love grilled brats, and i don’t think a outdoor grill is worth the money because i cannot use it in the winter. With this countertop oven i can use the broiler to get the same thing all year round.

I have had this toaster/oven for several months and it does everything well. The toasting is adjustable and it browns both sides nicely. It heats up very quick, which i like. I did not give it 5 stars because the numbering and letters at the control knobs are (and, i am not kidding) impossible to read at a normal distance sometimes. They blend in with background and are so tiny. I literally have to use a flashlight sometimes to read thembut, still, i would buy it again and recommend it because, mechanically, it is very good.

This toaster oven is perfect for its size. Not huge, but plenty big enough, fitting small personal pizza, small plate to hear items, a tortilla w/melting cheese or 4 pieces of med/size bread to toast.

This is a good little space saving oven, i do not use it for ‘toast’, i use it to make biscuits and other stuff and it has been very good. Not to mention that it has the right price.

When this arrived, there was a very small screw missing from the door handle which was in a very tight space, luckily, i had a pair of tiny needlenosed pliers and a ton of patience. It took some doing, but i finally got it fixed. I will say the picture is very misleading as this is very small. It is a fair toaster though.

First off let me point out that the 3 star rating does not mean anything is ‘wrong’ with the oven. I bought it hoping for better toast. My toaster was not producing even toasting so i thought that maybe a toaster oven was the way to go. There are no bells and whistles on this entry level oven. I wish i had gotten the next size bigger occasionally but not enough to purchase another one. The toasting of bread was fairly even and bagels were also acceptable. The outside of this oven get very hot and can cause a burn if one is careless. I am using it in place of my microwave for frozen dinners and the taste of those, though not gourmet related, is improved with the slower oven cooking. Also as i only have electricity, not gas, i am looking forward to being able to bake in the summer without overly affecting the ac.

We purchased this in april of 2012. For some time now half of the top element barely works. We’ve been limited to toasting on one side of the oven. The toaster oven we had before this lasted much, much longer–over ten years. It seems that everything is made to be very temporary and disposable these days. It’s still under warranty, and black and decker informs me that for $7. 50 i can have a new one shipped to me. But to do that i have to cut off two inches of the cord with the plug, send it in, and be without any toaster for 4-6 weeks because the item is on backorder. The two year warranty sounds great, but the process isn’t very convenient. If i had to buy again, i would look for something else.

This toaster oven was smaller than expected. I won’t be able to bake a frozen pizza in this, but i can put in two french bread pizzas. When i first toasted bread with it, only one side got taosted. I had the metal wire rack on the top level. So then i placed the rack on the bottom level and it toasted evenly. The timer has an annoying old fashioned clicking sound as it ticks away time. This can be solved by turning the timer to always on and using a different timer to time the cooking. That’s about it, it does what it does and it is small which is disappointing but that’s why it is so inexpensive. I’m hoping that using this to bake fries, or french bread pizzas or other small dishes will save on energy costs and be more efficient than my larger electric oven.

I bought this small ‘toaster oven’ to bake my polymer clay beads or any other object i needed it for. I have found it to true to the temp and easy to use. Wish i had put it in my kitchen.

This b&d countertop oven is a great addition to your kitchen. Normally mostother brands just have temperatures at low, medium and high. This unit actuallyhas 150 to 450 and broil. Its settings are at keep warm, broil, bake or toast. The timer is from light toast, dark toast, and up to 30 minutes, with an actualkeep on setting for baking or broiling. It will hold up to 2 good sized steaksor easily 4 muffins, toasts or bagels. It cooks evenly and unlike most other units,it has some great cleaning features, the back and lower tray are completely removable. So, no more holding your kitchen top oven upside down and shaking your crumbsout. This is a great oven for the money.

Black & Decker and Decker HS800 Handy Steamer Plus Food Steamer and Rice Cooker – Love this!

Loved the one i had and broke it.

The product was in great shape and works as expected.

I use this frequently, for so many things: hard-boiled eggs (never messes up), veggies, fish, rice, oatmeal, and even to steam bread (like using the microwave to warm something). I do not have a microwave so this product comes in very handy. My mom has one and feels the same way. Here are the specifications for the Black & Decker and Decker HS800 Handy Steamer Plus Food Steamer and Rice Cooker:

This is a great cooker for rice. It does not do lots, but enough for a couple of people. So much betterthan my huge rice cooker, which was so much more expensive. The rice always comes out perfectand this one was a gift for a friend because she loved mine so much.

  • Most useful kitchen appliance I own

I got it for my wedding three years ago and use it all the time. It makes perfect rice everytime. It wonderfully steams veggies. We love adding different spices to add flavor. This also helps to cut back on using salt. I can’t say enough good things about this steamer. Buy it and enjoy eating healthy.

This little appliance should be part of every cook’s kitchen, especially for anybody who loves fresh vegetables. I purchased this one as a gift, but i have been using this same steamer for years in my own kitchen, and it gets almost daily use.

We got one of these for our wedding 15 years ago. And only in the last week (immediately after our anniversary, lol) it started to have issues. Moisture started to get into the bottom, probably within the last month, and the connections have rusted out. Heat and water will do that pretty quick. We’ve used it on average once a week+ for our veggies. The rice steamer bowl doesn’t hold enough for our family, so that hasn’t been used. We’ve been extremely pleased with this item. Like i said a real workhorse, lasted 15 years.

I treasure my earlier model black and decker steamer/rice cooker. Found this model hs900 in excellent almost never used condition at goodwill today for $6. Have run a 25 minute test and it works perfectly. Did not have the scenter option in the earlier model but this brand is to me the easiest to use and care for. Produces great rice or steamed vegetables. I found a true bargain today. Grabbed it because i know my older model won’t last forever and i am hooked on using it (hs80 type 4). But i have had it between 10 and 15 years.

Rarely do i need to steam veggies which take the same amount of time as the rice to cook however.

Just like the one i had for years and when it stopped working i was lost. These are the best steamers ever.

I like it a lot better if it had directions.

This steamer was given tovcme as a christmas gift 18 yes ago and it has never let me down. I can saute’, fry, broil, stuff, bake, but have never i repeat never been able to properly boil an eggcin 45 yes of cooking. The eggs come out perfect, veggies are done healthy with steam. Easy to clean, and not a huge piece of equipment to ‘hide.

I have enjoyed having our handy steamer for some time now, using it intermittently for making steamed vegetables and similar dishes. It has proven to be sturdy, reliable, easy to use, and even easier to clean. It comes with a handy cookbook with recipe ideas and guidelines for how long to cook various types of foods. This machine is limited in its functionality, however, because it only has two positions — on and off. The only variables are how long you turn it on, and how much water you place in the steam chamber (which directly depends on cooking time to prevent the machine from boiling dry). Even so, it’s definitely worth the modest investment to have one of these readily available in your kitchen.

It works great just a little bit smaller than our last one.

I bought this steamer to steam just vegetables. But then i’ve realized that you can do so much. You can steam chicken & fish. I did a quick search on the reviews of this steamer and i say people are very satisfied with it. I love it because i can cook low-fat or not fat meals with it.

00 some years ago when i purchased my last one. I could not believe it is now $170 – $189. 00 i love black and decker, but i think they are a little over priced. I saw the ad for this one, original, never used, still in the shrink wrap and took at chance. Except for the fact that someone mailed it in the original box and it had gotten wet somewhere along the line, the inside was as it said. There wasn’t much of an instruction or timer guide with it, but i had the other so long i just used it the same way. I have used it about 5 times now and find it to be working well. Its too bad, black and decker can’t or won’t lower the price so more people could use this steamer.

Great product , we will like to buy more of this model if they exist.

This steamer and it’s larger brother, the hs900, were the best units made. Unfortunately they’ve been discontinued in favor of less useful, gimmicky models. The hs800 is a great size for 1-2 people depending what you’re cooking. It’s much easier to use and clean than the new models and units made by other manufacturers. I had a steamer made by another manufacturer that had a large oval bowl, a separate fill chamber, and an electronic timer. I found the oval bowl more cumbersome, the separate fill chamber would require bleach cleaning to kill mold that tended to grow in it, and the electronic timer less convenient. Get an hs800/900 before remaining stock runs out.

Best rice cooker/steamer ever.

This replaced my old one which probably still works though it was developing a problem shutting down prematurely after setting the timer. The new one works well and i’m satisfied.

Black & Decker CO85 Spacemaker Can Opener, Best product, best price

Can opener works great once you get it installed. They should have it mounted on a wooden or hard plastic platform to avoid drilling holes in your cabinet. I had the tools and the wood that i could cut to size and mount the opener on it than screw the wood onto the underside of the cabinet. Without the proper know how and equipment it would be a real pain in the ass to get it mounted. Someone should show them how to prepare it properly for mounting. Otherwise you have a major headache. Opener works great and the wife is pleased with it. If you buy it be prepared to need more parts and screws as well as the wood or plastic. You then drill a hole in each corner and use 11/4 drywall screws to attach unit to the cabinet.

Hey i don’t know why everyone is so hating this product. Had mine for a year and a half. But sorry to say the wheel that turns the cans finally broke in half. Called customer service and they told me that this model is no longer being made so no parts replacements. But other then that i used this thing everyday. I have five kids so can openers are very much a part of my life. And i never ever ever had a problem opening big or small cans. Strong motor and the lid catcher worked great. Easy to clean and never ever dropped a can. So all in all 20 dollars well spent.

I took a long time to decide on this one. The reviews that i had read went from extremely negative to extremely positive. I felt challenged to make an informed, intelligent decision. Though i had an earlier version of this can opener in a previous home – that operated flawlwssly – a lot of reviewers did not like this unit. Still, i had no other reasonable choices for an under-the-counter can opener, and the department manager at a bed, bath, and beyond store spoke highly of the black and decker units, though that store did not carry this item. I finally just decided to try it and see. I ordered one and installed it; it was less that $25. The provided spacers were required to attach it under the lip of the overhead cupboard. I wanted to do a flush-mount, but could not, due to my cupboard design.

, Best product, best price
, Good replacement!

Bought this for my 84 year old mom, who still cares for my 88 year old dad. Her 40 plus year old can opener quit. This is what she wanted for her birthday so i started to look around in stores. Absolutely no under counter space saver can openers available period. Got on line and found a few that were so pricey they should come with a title and be financed by the bank. I bought it for my mother and installed it. She is a happy camper once again. My dad immediately used the knife sharpener feather and sharpened all her kitchen knives. They are total satisfied with this product.

There were no product installation instruction for mounting the can opener.

I had a black and decker can opener before i got this one and i loved it. My can opener started to go bad. I know what your thinking how does a can opener go bad. This is how mine was going bad. When it would start to open cans it would stop like half way and get stuck. This happen sometimes not all the time. So i was thinking what could be wrong. Is the motor going bad or something else i can’t see or is the cutting blade bad. So i figure i would sharpen the cutting blade and see what happens. I did such a good job sharpening the cutting blade it wouldn’t even cut a 1/8 of an inch.

This is my 3rd can opener exactly like this one. I keep ordering them because its the only space saver can opener i can find. 2 things i don’t like about it are the blade comes off easily. So easily that when you take the can of from opening, the blade comes off also. The blade only lasts about 1 1/2-2 years. I tried to online and only buy a new blade but they don’t sell them so you have \to buy a whole new opener. It would be a great product if they fixed those things.

I never knew two people could be so excited about a can opener, but apparently my grandparents have been searching for one in stores and a little bit online for a long time. They used to have a black and decker that lasted them over 10 years, but when it finally died they couldn’t find one, and had purchased several cheaper versions that were not that great. So when i found this on amazon i was really happy because i knew it was something they needed and wanted and it would be better than something random. My dad is going to set it up for them, and it seems like it will be great.

I owned a b&d spacemaker can opener for several years and i had no desire to have another type. I could not find one in a store so i called b&d and they said ‘oh, we don’t make that one anymore’. . So, i went to amazon and ‘prunedanish’. I received it so quickly and well packaged. Brand new and boy, did that make me happyi would definately order from them again and be first to recommend this seller to anyone.

I was trying tho replace an old under the counter can opener, but this model had to be flush with the front of the cabinet which made it way too noticable. My old one hung at the back of the cabinet. Anyway, i returned this model and went back to using the old one which is more in the background.

The can opener works great but i liked my 20 year old model better. You have to drill four hole through your cabinet to mount it and the old one attached to a bracket that screwed in under the cabinet. I don’t like drilling holes in my oak cabinets so this one better last twenty years. And actually the old one still works but the wife wanted a new one (go figure).

I installed this unit years ago in our kitchen. The magnet on the arm came off and there really wasn’t a good way to re-attach it and unfortunately the part is not available. That would be my only gripe. I wish black and decker would make the basic part (like the arm) available instead of me having to buy another unit. My old unit worked great when the magnet broke off–the motor still ran good and everything. On the up side my old one lasted for years and i’m hoping this one will do the same.

I looked everywhere for a suitable replacement to my last can opener. I don’t know why there are so few cabinet mounted openers available now, but i could only find two models. Saw bad review on each, but opted for this because it had a similar design to one i had previously. I had to add an additional spacer to lower it to where the arm wouldn’t bump into the bottom of my cabinet, but it now works great, and i am very happy with the purchase. The mounting frees up my valuable and limited counter space.

This can opener works very well. We have always had under-cabinet units because i like to keep the countertops uncluttered for easy cleaning. Speaking of easy cleaning, just pop out the cutter thing once in a while and throw it in the dishwasher and wipe off the front while it’s washing. The knife sharpener works remarkably well, too and the bottle opener is nice because you can open a beer one-handed. Much easier than fishing through the drawer for the church key and then having to put down the bag of chips because you have to use two hands. Ok, so if it’s a screw off you don’t have to have an opener, but you still have to use two hands, so it’s better for a screw off, also. If you want an under-cab unit, this one is fine.

I would give it 5 stars if it were not so unreasonably expensive. But since i could not find something similar made by any other manufacturer, i ordered it. Works very well after a year at this point and i am pleased at that level.

I couldn’t find an under-cabinet replacement for my last b&d can opener in any local stores. I’ve had my last one in at least my last two houses (so long ago, i don’t recall when i got it). I was happy to find it on amazon. It was easy to install and is working great. I like having it off my limited counter space. I also like the sturdiness that having it mounted adds to large cans as well as having both hands free for the can and lid while opening.

I use my can opener at least several times a day. It fits well under the counter which takes up less room than sitting on the counter. It came in several colors although i chose black.

I used to have one of these but it finally quit after i don’t know how many years of service. The old one had a light on the back that was very handy. It is a little hard to load the cans at first and required quite a bit of maneuvering to find out how to get it in the jaws, but it opens the cans fine once you get it started.

I purchased this can opener to replace an earlier model that died after 15 years. Since this replaced an earlier b&d i figured i could use the existing holes and just unscrew the old one and install the new one. The holes need to be farther apart. So i did have to drill new holes, no problem. Then i couldn’t get the final screw to grab, figured that i had the holes drilled unevenly. After checking further i found that one screw supplied with the opener was not threaded properly. Had to wait until the next am and go to the hardware store and buy screws. Screws that came with the opener are 10-32, 2. , hardware store had only 10-32, 3 in. Screws, didn’t have to cut the screw since the 3 in. Opener works perfectly and installed easily once i realized the problem.

My old can opener quit working after 20 years of use. I was surprised that the black and decker under counter can openers are so hard to find. After searching local stores and not finding the under the counter can opener i checked online and was very happy to find a replacement on amazon. The model is slightly different, but basically it was the same can opener. Easy to install, works great.

I bought this and it works okay and is out of the way. However every 18 months to 2 years the rivet that holds the magnet breaks. If you like it, keep the parts because sometimes the blade wears out before the rivetfor the magnet breaks and you can use the parts to fix your next one. The removable cutter/magnet assembly is not available any longer and was too expensive anyway. So i have replaced the first unit with the second unit and then the second unit with the third unit. Now the third is broken do i replace it a fourth time?i just don’t know. Why doesn’t anyone else make these things.

I had one of these many years ago – like 20 – and then someone got me a new one with no cut edges. I have missed this unit ever since and recently bought one again. I was worried about construction and quality after all these years. My upper cabinet is too deep to mount it so i had to in glue wood strips so that the handle properly clears – just so you know. A flat cabinet underneath is perfect, and there are some washers included in case the inset is just minor. Mine was like an inch, so more drastic measures were needed. Also has a bag opener – which you will get used to using very quickly and not have to open a draw and grab a knife or scissors.

We’ve had this for several months now and we mounted it under the cabinets. It works well and is out of the way. It’s not loud (or any louder than other can openers). Tip: make sure when you mount it that the chord can reach an outlet and doesn’t get stretched too tightly. I wish this was the kind of can open that makes the cuts on the underside of the outside rim, rather than the inside of the can, but it works fine.

This can opener is the easiest and most convenient unit i have ever owned. The first one i bought is over 15 years old and works everytime. I remodled my kitchen and got a new one for the kitchen the old one will be in the new bar.
