BUNN Ronco 3000 Series Rotisserie- : Love it

I have just ordered my second rotisserie. Everyone wants me to make the turkeys for thanksgiving. Just put an apple, onion, and celery stalk in the cavity of the turkey and salt & pepper and a little olive oil on the outside and you wont believe how wonderful the turkey turns out. Chickens are awesome, just sprinkle with rotisserie seasoning and everyone will think you are a chef. Also does really good pork loins, and rib roasts. Would reccomend this to everyone. My first one lasted almost 15 years.

My husband bought this a few months ago. It cooks chicken super great ,but not good for roast unless you like it little rare. If it had a temp control it would be soooo much better for cooking foods other than chicken. Didn’t send it back because he loves chicken, i don’t eat meat so it not a problem for me.

Yes, the quality of this product did not live up to my expectations. However, i will admit that it does the job. I have cooked a whole chicken, cornish hens, and chicken wings in this machine. All have come out wonderful, in particular the chicken wings. In fact, i would say that i created the best tasting wings ever using this machine. Clean up was relatively easy when cooking cornish hens and a whole chicken, but more difficult with wings (because they are the fattiest part of the chicken, they tend to splatter). Another drawback would be the elastic food ties, which effect the taste of the chicken. Washing the ties with cold water seems to help a bit. My last disappointment with this machine is that no flavor injector was included. This is a pretty bare bones model, but thankfully i got it at a low price.

This cooker has transformed my kitchen. We use it several times a week & it turns out perfect food every time. I am learning to cook but this cooker does all the work and the parts go into the dishwasher. A special note for anyone that requires soft food: you can use this to roast meat before putting it into a pressure cooker & it will come out so wonderfully tender.The basket is amazing & turns out restaurant quality fish. I will never be without one & you will not regret this purchase.

We just wore the first one out through lots of use. Hopefully they will still be available when this one is worn out. I say worn out but really it was still working we just wanted another one since the one we had was getting discolored.

Ronco 3000 Series Rotisserie-White : We cooked some chicken legs and a roast in the oven and both came out tasting like barbecue. Clean-up was a breeze and it’s nice to know you’re saving energy by not heating up the larger oven. You can just about it “set it and forget it”.

Cooks everything perfectly moist and delicious every time. We have purchased four as gifts, for family members and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase more in the future. Hint#1: i only use the bottom half of the two-piece drip tray and line it with foil. (i found the top part to be useless. )hint#2: wipe out the inside while it’s still warm. Put the door in the dishwasher. And soak the skewer parts while eating dinner. Very easy cleanup if you don’t let it cool off.

A friend was always telling me how great this rotisserie was for her. So, finally i purchased the larger one, which came with quite a few accessories. I am 100% pleased with the item. The food is always moist and very tender. The only suggestion i have is do not cook on counter, where you have your top kitchen cabinets right above it. This rotisserie gives off a lot of heat, so when we use it, we place it either on our porch or garage. This arrangement works fine for us. The cleaning of it could be a bit easier so i lay aluminum foil on the bottom to catch any grease. I cannot think of any other reason as to why you would not be pleased with it.

As far as the product, its great i’ve had one for years. I bought this one for my son for a christmas gift. I would not buy at amazon, walmart sells its for less with free shipping.

I bought this for $60 from aldis. It is very loud for a small machine. I have a cusinart upright rotisserie that is very quiet. I bought this to see how it compared to the upright. I am doing a chicken so i will see how it does. If it does a good job i guess i will put up with the noise or my daughter may end up with it. Price was right and machine doesn’t look bad. 3 stars for now but might change after tasting the chicken.

I purchased this rotisserie 20 years ago from an informercial. It still works fine except plastic on the left bottom cracked and broke which holds the glass door on. Used it today for the last time and going to walmart tomorrow to buy a new one. After 20 years it is still the same price. Thanks ronco: but next purchase hopefully the bottom legs are metal. I hate to throw it out because it still works fine.

Could wait for my ronco 3000 to arrive, when it did i put it to use that very same day and it slow cooked the most moist, succulent chicken to ever cross my palate exceeding all expectations both advertised and reviewed.

The rotissier i order was defective. It took over 3 weeks to receive a new one, and cost me $17. 00 to ship the defecive one back. I will never order another appliance from amazon.

I received my ronco in 5 days time that was promised. Am completely satisfied with it.

My father gave this product to my husband. Not because he didn’t like, but because he likes sharing. I thought, wow, something else to clutter our kitchen. I have never eaten a roasted chicken that tastes so good. I can stop it and let it brown in one spot. Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Can’t wait to try it on chicken wings.

I’ve always wanted one – since i got this one i’ve used it almost every night – cooks quietly and quickly, is easy to assemble, easy to take a apart and clean and the food taste heavenly. Just wish the rotisserie basket came with it.

Love it, love it, love it, it is hands down easy to use and makes the best rotisserie chicken. We actually got one brand new for 7 bucks at a yard sale. I highly recommend this even if you pay $100. 00 you’ll get your moneys’ worth with all the great stuff you can make.

This rotisserie is wonderful. You can cook just about anything in it and it’s always moist and flavorful. Just don’t touch the outside.

I love these rotisseries so much this is my third one. I use it very often and have nothing but praise for this easy to use and easy to clean up product. I have especially appreciated the versatility and the varying sizes available to match the changing size of my families needs. Nothing beats this product for cooking chicken, pork loin and roast beef.

I ordered this on line and it was shipped and received within 3- 4 days. I am very impressed and happy with the rotisserie. I had heard about how great the turkeys and chickens were done in this roaster by friends of mine, and this convinced me.

Thi is the second of this item i bought. I bought the original 10 years ago. It finally got used too much so i replaced it the new version has teflon coating ont he bars and tray which is so much better,and the price now is so much lower then originally i paid $1u89 and now i paid $60 how’s that for getting rooked first time over.

It’s kind of cool, a bit of a pain to clean, but at least it makes me a good meal and makes my apartment smell like nice cooked chicken. The only problem i have with it is that the cooking times seem to be a little bit off.

BUNN Sunbeam SGS90701B 0 – Small and Perfect

When a manager at my job got fired he took his microwave and fridge with him. He allowed his to use those items. I didn’t know how spoiled i was so i bought one for myself to use along with my coworkers. It heats food and water up just fine. I’m pleased and it fits just fine and doesn’t take up much space.

Takes up much less space than our old full-size micro, but still offers all the functions that we need. The turntable is a great feature, too.

The interior is large enough to accommodate a standard plate and then of course a bowl or cup.

The cheapest, highest rated one i could find at the time (when my other low end microwave died after 10+ years of service). Nothing really to beam about. It does what it is supposed to in the time expected for a low power device. But, i do have some complaints. Though nothing offensive enough to warrant returning it. Brand new, out of the box it wobbled on my countertop. No adjustable legs to fix the issue. So, i affixed some spongy rubber pads to the front two sheet metal indentations which function as the front feet.

A little underpowered compared to my last microwave, but it is only 700 watts. Works well without any issues, some things you have to cook for a bit longer than the instructions call for.

This is a great microwave, albiet small, but does all that it is supposed to do. It is wonderful in small places.

  • A capable little low power microwave, with some irritating quirks
  • Does all you’d expect
  • Decent for the price.

After using this microwave for about a year i can safely say that it is excellent for the price. It does a good job of heating up food.

Not a great microwave, but it seems like the best in it’s price range, which doesn’t say much. Amazon is not a great place to buy a microwave, which is surprising.

I bought this for my daughter and roommates. They warm stuff up, bake potatoes and heat frozen dinners.

Love this microwave office , use it in my office.

I gave this as a gift for the people who work at a memory facility to use in their break room.

This microwave is great for the price. Works perfectly and fits nicely in a college apartment. The only thing i don’t like about it is how loud it is and how much it beeps. There is no way to adjust the volume and can be very disruptive when others are sleeping or studying.

Great value for a college student and just the right size. Fits into small spaces a cooks everything evenly and at the recommended time.

I wanted a cheap, effective microwave and this one fits the bill perfectly. I’ve only used the basic settings but it’s about $50 cheaper than buying a similar model from best buy/target.

I live in a tiny studio and i don’t have a lot of space, so this microwave was perfect for me.

A little disappointed in the quality, and size of the interior. When you open the door, you begin to wear away the thin plastic covering on some of the numbers close to the handle. Also feel it is a thin metal cabinet instead of the heavier cabinets, i have had before. Since much of my use is heating and reheating, i am sure it will serve that purpose.

Much better than the last small microwave, which just died. This one has the quick buttons for things like popcorn, beverages, and defrosting. You can also use anywhere from 10 percent to full power. Update: i do not like when i set the timer, and it pops back to the clock, so i do not know how much time is left. Otherwise, it is working great.

700-watt of cooking power with 10 adjustable power levels

Perfect size and adequate function. However, after i purchased it i found better deals at local stores with more watts. I needed a certain size that wasn’t available locally, but when the holiday sales came out. . Leo and behold 900 watt microwaves for the same or less money and the size i needed.

My review, as a buyer and user of the item,so amazon do not get involve/interfere/etc as a middle men in selling. Simple item,for simple use in less time,work and with patience. This microwave is very simple, not for the professional chef,mainly for warming food in readiness,lack of time and in hurry. Small microwave,for single person in fast life.

Very happy with my new microwave ,it’s the perfect size for me.

Really ‘sharp’ looking microwave. Very easy to use, light, looks great in my kitchen, a really nice product.

This was perfect for my elderly in-laws. They didn’t want a bulky microwave and this worked out perfectly.

This item arrived in perfect condition. Neat sleek lines and compact size make it a great addition to a college apartment.

6 auto cooking/one touch menu options

The plate for this microwave does not stay on the track very often. I actually have seen this microwave in other cheap places since i bought it and the plates don’t stay on the track of these either. If i had the choice to do it over, i would spend a little more money to get a higher quality microwave.

Nice product, small, good price for the product. . Too new to question warranty, or service needs but seems to be fine.

I love it got it on time and it’s easy to work and easy to clean food heats up fast thanks .

I bought this even though there were many reviews that were poor. Microwave broke within 7 months. I did purchase a warranty, but it broke when something startled me and i accidentally broke a hook off the door (thus making it impossible to close)since it was not a defect, but caused by myself. The warranty didn’t cover it. I honestly don’t understand how the hook even broke off, but i’d recommend getting a higher quality microwave.

It’s only 700 watts and we use it as a backup for less than reliable sharp mw drawer. I would recommend getting a unit with at least 1000 watts.

It works great and i am vary happy with the product. It is a perfect sides for a single person or for college student.

It’s smaller than i thought it would be, but overall it works great for our office.

Express cooking and weight defrost

This is a replacement of the preview cheaper version sunbeam. Just a reminder: it’s in really really small size.

This little microwave is just what i was looking for and at a great price. It has most of the features of a larger oven, but just how many of those buttons do you actually need?i do have a larger microwave for my long platters and over-sized containers. However, in most cases, this smaller one does the job well and takes up less counter space. If you need a second microwave or just want a smaller one with all the features you will need, then give this on a try.

It’s loud but it gets the job done. I’m very happy with this microwave.

For the price this is an awesome microwave. It is high powered and gets things cooked quick. I would buy it again if i needed another one.

Like this microwave , solid and sturdy. Works well has a lot of features. It is a very large unit had to rearrange kitchen to find a good spot for placement.

I love this microwavepros: very powerful, tons of settings, easy to operate, looks great, & large. Cons: absalutly noneupdate 8 years in and just as powerful as the day i got it, although the light just burned out.

Comments from buyers

“Excellent product with equally good prospects
, Very happy with the microwave
, Noisy.

Purchased july of 2013, died march of 2016pros:- pretty cheap- worked well enoughcons:- died too quickly- really annoying beeps that don’t stop when you open door. Would not buy again, but it was fine for what it was.

I purchased the oster microwave after my ge numbers pad quit working after one year. I have had the oster for one month and so far have nothing but praise for this unit. I would recommend this to friends.

Found the perfect microwave.

So far it is working and seems to cook evenly. It got top ratings and i took a chance since i never had this brand in a microwave. The light in the microwave is low but in a normal kitchen it is not a problem, i just use it sometimes in the dark.

Use it on my counter top in the kitchen.

We bought a top-of-the-line panasonic a little over a year ago to replace the same model that had given us many years of faithful service. The new one was different in one important regard: they’d replaced the steel door latches with plastic. They lasted just beyond the warrantee, a fate several other web reviewers are now reporting as well. When i went through a couple of large appliance retailers, i discovered that everyone has switched to plastic. So why did we buy this oster?. Simple: it takes less than 10% the pressure to latch/unlatch the oster vs. The panasonic, and about 20% of the pressure of the next best brand. Oster’s door latches should easily last beyond the lifetime of the oven. They are also rated very highly in the consumer rating magazine that doesn’t like people reporting on their ratings.

This microwave is perfect size for our office. It is very efficient and has a nic appearance. We purchased a different brand from somewhere else and it quit working on day 2. I have been very pleased with this product.

After a few months,, the turntable made a grinding noise when the microwave oven was in operation. We tried making adjustments by turning the ring that supports the glass tray around to see if it was meant to be placed just one way, but it made no difference.

This is a nice microwave , my only complaint is and its not that big of a deal when the timer goes off even if you open the door it continues to beep for 4 beeps.

I thought i was buying a much smaller microwave, and was very surprised at how large this one was. I paid attention to all the reviews and price point, finally deciding that this was a good buy. It is a bit noisy (you know it’s working), but it cooks my food much more evenly and much more quickly thank my old microwave.

I’ve only had it for about a week, though. Since so many microwave oven reviews complain about the short life, i bought the amazon 4-year protection plan, especially since the whirlpool i bought 3 years ago just failed. The amana radar range i had before that lasted over 30 years.

I had been looking for a microwave, came across this one (excellent price on amazon, also had good reviews) with free s & h. Ordered it a week or so before christmas, i did not think it would arrive in time but it did (very pleased with the fast shipping). Microwave buttons are self explanatory, easy to operate. I essentially only use it to warm/heat food (it’s great for those steam/cook in the bag vegetables and microwave popcorn). Have had it a little over a month and absolutely love it.

I works fine; however, its larger than my old one and it uses more power. It shorted the circuit until i moved it to another (less convenient) part of the kitchen. It was too much hassle to return it. It’s working fine in the new location. I caution you to consider energy capacity if your current microwave is smaller than this one.

Moving tray inside extremely noisy and plastic ring of poor quality.

I got this microwave because my previous oster microwave was looking kind of shabby (there was nothing wrong with it). I like my new one, but it’s buttons are different than my previous one, so i had to refer to the instruction manual to figure out how to use the power button, potato button etc. So far it meets my expectations, and i use it every day.

Came on time, right product. Makes food magically delicious.

It cooks really fast and you can barely hear it. It’s very sleek looking as well.

Overall the microwave looks great and has worked perfectly so far. I think that some of the buttons are arranged a bit counter-intuitively, but maybe i was just really used to my old microwave.

I like that it is 1200 watts of power and a lot of features on it.

Delivered promptly in good shape. Good size for everything i want to do.

BUNN Ronco Inventions ST4000 Showtime Indoor Rotisserie and BBQ – Ronco Oven

I have really enjoyed this machine. I read many reviews on the product before i purchased it and as a result of some of the negative reviews i decided to purchase a remanufactured rotisserie (st4000) for only $79 and free shipping. I thought perhaps purchasing a remanufacture product would take care the glitches mentioned in the other reviews. The unit comes fully packaged and looks new. It is a title on the tall side, but not too wide & not much bigger than a convection oven. For those of you who have low cabinet space consider purchasing the smaller unit. I have and island in my kitchen so its perfect. The key is to clean the unit as soon as your meal is done.

I always clean it right after use and have no problems with it.

I was extemely skeptical, but being somewhat of an impulse shopper, my wife and i decided to order one with our wedding money after getting back from our honeymoon. We’ve never regretted it, as we use it more than our conventional oven. Particularly delicious is poultry and fowl. We’ve never tried ribs, but we tried roasts and other types of meat, however, turkey and chicken always come out the best. The shishkabobs come out pretty nice as well. So why four stars, instead of five?. Basically the one problem we ran into with this unit was not in the rotisserie, but the steam tray. It worked pretty good until the paint began chipping underneath the steam part which holds the vegetables. (although not on the main unit itself. ) also fish came out dry until we figured out how many, and what type of, vegetables to place in the basket with the fish. Here are the specifications for the BUNN Ronco Inventions ST4000 Showtime Indoor Rotisserie and BBQ:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Large enough to hold two chickens or a 15-pound turkey
  • Pause setting permits meats to be browned on spit
  • Tray fits atop rotisserie for steaming foods
  • Included: 6 kabob rods, flavor-injecting syringe, heavy gloves, 12 elastic ties
  • Special Packaging includes Knife and Shear set

I was flipping channels one night, and the showtime rotisserie infomercial caught my eye. While i am a lifelong vegetarian, my husband loves a good roast, so i bought the rotisserie (i would’ve preferred the compact model, but it wasn’t offered here in australia). This appliance appears to be of good quality. I can’t say how durable it is, as we’ve only used it once (that was enough, as some will find at clean-up time). Thankfully, the glass door is removable so that it can be washed in the sink, but i was a nervous wreck about knocking it and breaking it (i have no idea if it’s even possible to get a replacement door). It is difficult to clean inside, as there is a reflective shield behind the heating elements. Vaporized grease would surely migrate there. Imagine having to fully clean your normal oven every time you use it. That’s what this is like, except that it’s really greasy. The showtime was used for a christmas roast, and as christmas is in the summer down here, it made the kitchen really heat up.

Having read through the many reviews of this product, i thought i would weigh in with my two cents. I purchased the showtime the first time i saw it on an infomercial over five years ago. I have made a ten pound prime rib roast, a fifteen pound turkey, whole chickens and countless chicken parts. I have never had a meal turn out less than perfect. I have had to replace the bulb for the interior light so this should tell you how often i have used the rotisserie. To be sure, the unit looks used, with paint chips and burn marks around the exterior where the glass door meets the metal but this is a testament to its reliability throughout the years. I use this product more than any other appliance in the kitchen and when it ceases to function, i will replace it immediately. I have read complaints about smoke and fumes and i have to say that this has never occured when i have used my showtime. If i was to complain at all about the unit, it would concern the cleanup. The non-stick drip tray isn’t all that easy to clean and you really have to spray the interior of the unit (i use simple green) each time to avoid unpleasant odors.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Tacky advertising – but it works as advertised!
  • everything I put in that rotisserie comes off nice I wouldn’t trade it in for the world I
  • Great.

This is without a doubt one of the best birthday gifts i’ve every received. Chicken, pork, duck, pot roast. All prepared in the rotisserie with succulent results. I also tried to cook corned beef in the rotisserie but that didn’t turn out so well (it was a little tough and undercooked in the middle). The vegetable steamer works wonderfully as long as you time the veggies so that they don’t overcook. I live in a condo building and the neighbors always know when the rotisserie is going. This is a must have kitchen appliance. It uses very little space (i sit mine on top of the microwave). I figure i’ll experiment with just about every type of meat i can think of.

After over a year of use, we are still happy with our ‘ronco’. Without a doubt, the best use is for rotisserie style chicken. It cooks them quickly, evenly and juicy. Beef products have been a disappointment. It disassembles easily for cleaning. And you really can ‘set it – and forget it’.

After seing it in an info-commercial, i have decided to purchase it and give it a try. At first, i was rather pleased. The machine started making squeaky noises as the wheel would turn. After that, i noticed that the built-in timer wasn’t accurate. The metal vegetable compartment is a real joke. Vegetables turn out dry and the container is cheap. Cleaning is a lot of trouble. The metal reflector behind the element becomes very dirty & practically uncleanable. The good side to the rotisserie is that the poultry comes out delicious.

I watched the commercials and after seeing about 10 finally bought it off qvc for a lower price. I am very happy with it, i am a mess in the kitchen and this has saved dinner for my family. It cooks chicken that is very tender and full of flavor not dry at all. I have cooked meats that were right out of the freezer and that didn’t seem to make a difference. Also it cooks so many different meats, veggies. It is large enough to handle large turkies and roasts, but takes up only a resonable amount of space. It does get very hot when cooking so keep kids away. But it is so easy to use and clean and great food comes out with almost no effort. I definitly recommend this to anyone who needs or wants a helping hand in the kitchen.

The first weeks after i got the showtime rotisserie, i cooked everything in it that i could think of. Turkey, ham, chickens, fish, pork chops, vegetables, burgers, steaks, hot dogs, etc. I kept thinking that it couldn’t be as good as they say it is. But everytime, it exceeded my expectations. It makes the moistest, most flavorful meats, vegetables, fish and poulty that i have ever seen. I even took it to my office for our holiday potluck and cooked the ham right in the office. If you like great food that is super easy to cook, get this item. The only thing i had to adjust is on larger meats, i check it with a meat thermometer and have had to cook it a little longer but it still turns out great.

I love rotisserie chicken and turkey. So much so that i used to purchase several chickens and 1 or 2 turkey breast halves each week at the deli department of my local supermarket (my entire family shares my love of poultry cooked in a rotisserie). Three months ago, i bought this machine and have never looked back. I was paying $7 for a small chicken and $10 for half of a very small turkey breast. Now, i get them for half that amount and they are ready whenever i am in the mood. Plus it may be my imagination, but i think the ones i cook are better than the ones i used to buy. Just the other day, the deli department was asking why i never buy from them and i couldn’t help telling about my showtime rotisserie and how great everything cooked in it tastes. I discovered that if i am careful to center the chicken/turkey/or other meat on the spit not only from end to end but also so that parts of the item cooking are always equi-distance from the cooking surface as it rotates. Since i have begun being exacting about placement, it has always cooked within the time estimated.

I asked for this about 2 years ago for my birthday and my wife obliged. It looked like it was worth the gamble back then. The showtime makes the best (juicy) poultry i have ever had at home consistently. Chickens, ducks, and poussin are my favorite items to make along with a boneless rib roast and leg of lamb. The machine does let smoke escape, so you should place it near a venting unit or an open window when in operation. It is very easy to clean up thanks to the nonstick coatings on many of the pieces. The kebab rods are really good too as they rotate individually in addition to the wheel rotation. This is a great, compact unit that does a wonderful job on poultry and roasts. It is well worth the money and my kitchen will not be without one of these (will replace my unit if it ever needs to be).

Great product – i stand mine on top of my electric oven, on a rigid heat-resistant mat, under the fan hood. A timer that stops the cooking instead of just beeping is brilliant. As are the removable parts which all go into the dishwasher. As for counter space, i never use my oven anymore. That took 15 minutes to heat up – the rotisserie needs no warming time; it’s great. I do add five – eight minutes onto the cooking times for chicken from the fridge, it needs that. But all the instructions are focused on the great results with meat. I’ve gotten used to microwaving vegetables – and i wish someone had recommended steaming times?.Obviously you can’t add vegetables for as long as roasted meat – but it would help to know when you could add them on top – half an hour before the end, perhaps?.

This was a corny gift i received, but i like to cook so i put it on my xmas list. My kids got a kick out of buying it for me, i get a kick out of using it. Pretty well made, replacement parts are available from ronco. Com, and this thing makes the best darn chicken i have ever cooked at home. I even tried steaks and they came out pretty good too. Easy to clean, easy to cook, easy to buy accessories. . I was surprised and impressed, now i have to lobby with my wife to leave it on the counter all the time. . You really cannot make a mistake with this, and the price is really reasonable for what it does.

It arrived in great condition.

The rotisserie works very well so far. Positives — we like the way it cooks food, but it takes longer to cook to our taste than the instructions indicate. Cleanup is really easy (but follow the instructions to line the back with foil). We use it on the porch which gets the heat and cooking odors out of the house. It has done a turkey, chickens and a beef top round roast (which came out tough). Not so positives — it is supposed to hold a 15 pound turkey but we had to squeeze to get a 14 pounder in. Don’t put onions, carrots, etc. In the bird – instant ejection. Plan on 50% additional cooking time. We haven’t used the basket yet because the food in the center is a lot farther from the heat than the food on the sides of the basket.

I have had the same 4000 rotisserie for 18 years now. It is easy to use and easy to clean. Remove the spit unit and bottom trays and heat shield and put them in your dishwasher. Spray some krud kutter on the inside walls and wipe off, rinse your sponge and re-wipe the walls a couple of times. The door also fits nicely in the dishwasher and comes out very clean. If you haven’t cleaned it for a long time, use two detergent pods. Yes it gets hot, but i have it sitting on top of my clothes dryer and do not think it overheats the laundry area/kitchen in my home, even in the summer. It makes the best chicken, pork loin, prime rib and leg of lamb you have ever eaten. I do check the timer and periodically the temp of the meat, so i guess i don’t really ‘forget it’. If i have company i can turn off the heat for a while to delay the meat being finished too soon. It is just about fool proof. 00 for it, 18 years ago and it is still going strong.

Everything i put in that rotisserie comes off nice i wouldn’t trade it in for the world i love my rotisserie i really got my money’s worth out of that it’s really worth the money.

Overall this product was remarkable. It cooked the best prime rib i have ever eaten, but their is a downside to this oven just to let you all know. The oven is not as smoke free as it is shown in the infomercial. When we were cooking a prime rib roast, the whole first floor was engulfed with a thick smoke similar to cooking with a wok. You maybe saying that i did not read the instructions before using it, but i got other people to look at it and it is just the way it is when the oil falls onto the tray and evaporates due to the hot temperature which produces smoke. By smoke i do not mean like the kind you get when you burn wood. Other than that the oven performed very well from what i can see. Unfortunately, i used this only 6 times, the rotating motor failed. The heating elements will not work if the rotating motor fails. Because it costs so much to repair, we rest it to the landfills.

This machine is a great addition to any home. It does have its cons, but overall the meals produce from this modern marvel are awesome. I have never had dry chicken come out of this machine, ribs are moist and delicious, lamb comes out awesome. Heck, i have even done some venison roast with this insane carnivore contraption, and they came out mouth-watering good. Couple of weak points, this thing can be a pain to clean. I recommend soaking the basket in dishwater while you are eating your meal. This will loosen the crusted on skin and fat to a level that well allow it to be removed by hand scrubbing. I have tried using pam cooking spray on the basket but again, remnants of baked on food remains. The plastic gloves suck, they stick to everything that is hot, so invest in some heavy duty oven mitts. In addition, that ridiculous plastic chicken carver stand that comes with this unit is better used as watering dish for your pets.

I acutally have the smaller version of this machine, that cooks up to a 12 pound turkey. It was purchased for me as a gift, since i would have never bought something like this for myself. My family has adopted the ‘atkins’ eating plan and are always looking for new ways to easily cook meats. Well this machine does it all. My friends thought i was the greatest cook in the world when i easily cooked a chicken in the machine. It smells yummy when it cooks and i have found clean up to be very easy when you line the drip pan with aluminum foil. You can also use the drippings in the pan to make great gravy if you are so inclined. The final scoop-if you live a busy life(like me) and don’t have lots of time to spend in the kitchen but want quality, quick cooking options, this machine should be on your list.

BUNN Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro Stainless-Steel Electric Juicer – A juicer after my own heart!

This juicer was effective in pulling out pure juice. And, the juices were very concentrated. It is true to its promise to get juice from everything. The chrome finish was a definite plus for matching my appliances, which made me not have to always put it away. And, that’s great because this juicer is bulkyit was easy to take apart and clean, a definite step up from the white one i had that always had green stains. The components disassemble was super easymy only wish is that the top of the solid fruit feeder was steel as well. And doesn’t withstand wear well.

I have been using this juicer for 2 years and would not buy another type or model. Like all good equipment, it does what it is intended to do when used properly. I juice carrots, apples, beets and beet greens, kale, collard greens, ginger, celery, cucumbers, pumpkin cubes, and summer squash. I usually make a 1/2 gallon each morning for my wife and myself. Some procedures will make it easier to use. Be aware that juicy fruits, ie. Citrus, melons, mangoes do produce a mushy pulp that will tend to clog the fine filter screen. You have to be careful by checking the screen often to make sure that the pulp is not clogging the screen and the drain opening.

Love my juicer–it is a work horse never leaves the counter–easy to assemble/ dis-assemble/ clean, i’ve only had it bog down on carrots–my fault i’m sure. Lol cost effective, great machine–some parts are not stainless. Which surprised me, but parts are available through the manual. If you are looking for a non expensive solution to restoring your health, this juicer will get you well on your way–hey.Jack lelane one of my first tv memories, he stayed fit and buff into grandparenthood. Here are the specifications for the BUNN Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro Stainless-Steel Electric Juicer:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Stainless-steel electric juicer produces fresh juice quickly and easily
  • Extra-large round chute; stainless-steel blade and mesh filter
  • Whisper-quiet 3,600 RPM motor; patented extraction technology
  • Large-capacity pulp collector; non-drip spout; dishwasher-safe parts
  • Product Built to North American Electrical Standards

I wanted to give juicing a try and researched various models but decided that the jack lalanne model was perfect for my needs. I have to say, after several months of using the item i am very satisfied with its capabilities. Adding this to the kitchen has been fantastic and certainly adds to healthy living. The only drawback is that ocassionally the juicer will automatically shut down. When this happens, it takes several minutes for the juicer motor to start again. I’m not sure if this is a safety mechanism built in to the juicer (but i hope so). This has happend only a few times so i’m not toom concerned – and i didn’t overload the drop chute and apply any undue pressure on the grater to stress the motor. Outside of this, i am very satisfied.

Wow, my daughter loves her jack lalanne juicershe owned a deli at one time and all her appliances were stainless steel. She told me her juicer is the brightest, nicest thing in her house, and works like a dream.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • This is an excellent juicer!
  • Not as I was expecting
  • Excellent juicer

The product def does what it supposed to; however, the trash recepticle on the back side doesnt always catch the excess garabage like it should, it is very loud and you have to be super fast between throwing in the items and putting on the top as it will spit the food back out the top. Though the parts come apart easily it is a huge pain to clean as there are so many. And don’t loose or misplace that handle piece or you’ll be out of luck when you want to take it apart to clean it. Def an item that has to be cleaned after every use as well. With all that being said we’ve only used it a couple times, but it does make great juice.

I have owned this juicer for a little more than a month and have enjoyed using it. It is easy to operate, the sound is minimal and clean-up is quick. When cleaning, be sure to clean the hood thoroughly. That is, verify that all of the pulp is out of the crevices. I overlooked this once and it was not pretty. Also, sometimes the juice is leaks out from under the spout, causing a minor mess on the countertop.

Very sturdy and quite unit and is well made. Perfect for juicing carrots and celery, clean up is a breeze. I love this all stainless pro model.

It turns fruits into juice in no time and clean up is not bad once you are done. You will need plenty of fruit to make a good amount of juice.

Product seems to be of high quality, but the whole juicing/cleaning and throwing away so much bulk was not for me. Returned it w/in 30 days for a full refund. So, the ability to return it was a big plus.

After several years it retained its quality.

I am an avid juicer; have been for years. I have owned other brands of juicers, none of them produce juice this clean. The lalanne power juicer pro (stainless steel) is the best on the market hands down. Pulp is dry, juice is clean, and there is almost no foam at all. Anyone else saying different on here either doesn’t know how to properly use a juicer or is getting paid by another company to make false claims. This juicer is the real deal folks. It combines the best features from all centrifugal juicers as well as masticating. And for this price it is a steal. Do yourself a favor and trust me.

Juicing in any form is a messy endeavor and not the easiest thing in the world to do. I am disappointed that the pulp is so wet and that some of my veggies don’t fully grind up in this juicer. I have found only one thing to produce dry pulp and that is a ‘press’ which is a two step process and very laborious, time consuming and messy. Looking forward to better technology to get the job done.

I bought this juicer not really knowing what to expect and i love it. It has safety features, easy instructions, easier cleanup and the results are perfect. You can spend more money on bigger juicers, but you wont get better.

I have been using this for 2 years now and i love it. The stainless steel is easy to clean as long as it is cleaned right away after use (mainly because of the blade and basket) and it doesn’t leave stained in color like the white plastic jack lalanne model that my friend has. I always save my plastic produce bags to use in the pulp collector for easy clean up. The chute is large enough that i am easily able to put full apples, cucumbers, multiple carrots in without an issue. It also is fairly quiet and doesn’t shake violently like a target bought model that my other friend owns. The non drip spout is a great little feature as well. One small complaint is the height of the spout, but i use a pyrex quart measuring cup which sits under the spout perfectly and works out well. My usual recipe is half a lemon, half a cucumber, a small apple, 3 stalks of a heart of celery and a good size piece of ginger. I’ll add carrots, beets, or greens like parsley, collard greens or kale to this recipe at times as well. It has also been very beneficial for my acid reflux, better then any pill.

I love using my juicier every day. Its easy to use, but a pain to clean. Since i started substituting a juice for breakfast and lunch (along with healthy snacks in between) ive lost 10 pounds in one month. Either meal so i was starving by dinner time. Now i still get nutrients and vitamins and have lots of energy. With only that little change i feel better than ever. So happy with the results, and am exited.

I received the jack lalanne pjp about 3 weeks ago, and my family & i have been using it every day since thenit’s quiet, efficient, and the stainless steel styling makes it gorgeous. We’ve really enjoyed experimenting with it by combining different fruit and vegetables to make various healthy concoctions. One of our favorites is to combine 1 peeled orange with a full apple plus a carrot or two. It’s kind of fun to just toss a hunk of fruit down the chute, then watch all the delicious, fresh juice just shoot out of the front of the machine. Even the kids love itcleaning it up is actually pretty easy, too. Once you get a system going. I guess the only bad thing is all the money we’re spending on fruits & veggies nowbut if you’re considering ‘the juicing lifestyle,’ i personally think you’ll be extremely happy with this powerful, sexy machine.

Indeed it is super quite and easy to clean, although some components are to big and not easy to handle if you don’t own a dish washer. The juice is fine and clean, but be aware of what kind of vegetables/fruits are you trying to juice, for instance: it works very good with carrots, celery, apples and pears; but not that good with lettuce or spinach. So, be careful trying to get juice from any kind of ‘leaves’, ’cause you won’t wet almost any from them. In my case, the best way i have found to combine all the ingredientes i want in my morning smoothie is by getting the juice (from vegetables/fruits with similar texture of my example) on the power juicer and then using a blender to mix any kind of ‘leaf’. Now i am wondering if it worth my money if i still have to use one extra device to get my morning juice (??).

With any juicer there is a lot of pulp cleanup. This is nice and very sturdy. The pieces are easy to clean, but it does make a ton of pulp when juicing items.

I searched all over the internet for the best juicer for the best price. After studying all the reviews, i bought a jack lalanne pjp power juicer pro about a month ago. I use it twice a day–i make a green drink every morning and fruit juice smoothie every evening–and i love it. It is totally worth the money, is very easy to use, and easy to clean. For those people who are worried about how much clean up time is required (like i was), don’t be; it only takes a few minutes. I recommend washing it immediately after juicing so the pulp won’t dry in the juicer. Also, put a small plastic bag (trash bag, grocery store bag, etc. ) in the pulp catcher & that cuts clean up time in half. If i’m rushed, i just put it in the dishwasher.

I like this juicer a lot, however, it does tend to clog when there’s too much pulp. I think it could use a different spout. And, i have to break up celery and feed it in last or the fibers get stuck in the blades and it can’t finish with the other vegetation.

BUNN Jack LaLanne JLPJB Power Juicer Juicing Machine : of the line juice machine but it does a great job at making a very delicious cup of juice

This juicer (in my opinion) is one of the best out. Did a lot of research on various juicer and found this to one of the best. It is easy to use and easy to clean.

This product works well for the most part; it juices fruits and veggies with ease. The one thing i noticed however is that it the machine itself could be a bit higher so that you can place a regular size glass under the spout. It is a bit inconvenient & time consuming to have to use a smaller size glass/container and then have to transfer the juice to a larger container.

Have had this juicer before. The catch tray is useless, doing opposite of what it is for and causes a mess so i don’t use it but otherwise i like the juicer.

I use this product almost everyday. It’s easy to clean and i found that if i use a plastic grocery bag in the mulch container it’s easier to clean too. If you’re into composting then you can use the mulch as compost – or depending upon what you have used to juice, use the pulp in recipes like chile and meatloaf (for veggies), or breads and cakes (for fruits) it adds a lot of flavor and texture.

I borrowed a jlpjb from a friend, and used hers for a month before i purchased one. Found it was easy to clean, operate and did great. Inexpensive enough to be affordable, you can also get parts online like a blade, etc. Worked with all kinds of veggies and fruits. I would recommend this machine to anyone starting juicing, i love mine.

Jack LaLanne JLPJB Power Juicer Juicing Machine : This machine produces great juices but it get clogged a lot. I also find that the pulp i’m supposed to throw out has a lot of juice. Not bad fir the price, but they could do better.

The knife was not sharp enough, to cut the fruits. Which was very disappointing, but i replaced it with my older juicer’s.

I purchased this juicer because the one i had just like it for over 4 years needed to be replaced because the big plastic screw that holds the blade cracked away little by little, but the power was still going strong. When i saw this one used, i decided to by and was very pleased with my order. When the juicer arrived, ur looked as if it was brand new and it arrived very quickly. Overall, i am very pleased with my order and i love when my purchase exceeds my expectation.

Then after heavy use it started to produce more pulp/ leave more juice in the pulp. It also started leaving bits of pulp in the juice if the filter basket was not cleaned frequently. It still works great and i love it. I just love it a little more for the first few batches. We managed to can 10 gallons of apple cider this year with the help of this machine. Can’t wait to try it on other produce.

I have only owned three juicers but this is the best so far. The large opening takes apples and oranges easily. Unlike most centrifugal juicers, it is actually able to get some liquid out of leafy greens. Not as well as an auger juice extractor, but well enough that you can get value from the greens that you buy for juicing. Disassembly, cleaning and reassembly is fast and easy. Almost all of the pulp makes it into the ejection bin and what little sticks to the top cowl is easily scooped off with the fingers and dropped into the bin. The pulp is very dry which shows that most juice was successfully extracted. This juicer is also much quieter than my last one. I bought it used-as-new and it really was as-new. I would buy the same model again if i needed another one.

I like the size because you can make a lot of juice at one time.

I bought the juicer so i could make juice for my three year old son who will not eat veggies, and i want him to have good healthy juice that is not loaded with sugar. Juicer works quickly and quietly and i am very happy with it. My son loves the whole process nad is happily drinking vegies every day. 🙂 it can be a bummer to clean but the quality and flavor of fresh juice makes it a non issue.

This juicer works real good on lemons, oranges and even grapes but don’t recommend it for mangos, pineapples or even apples, just not heavy duty enough for those, but for the price its a good deal. Make sure to clean it well after each use and it works fine and hopefully will last longer.

Love this juicer as a first time juicer this was so nice. Easy to clean and very easy to prepare and use. I highly reccomend for the price it is awesome. I only switched because i wanted to upgrade to a cold press juicer.

Just wanted something more simple then the greenstar juicer for my morning celery juice from medical medium. Easier clean up, and i’ll do it more.

Product does as advertised and is useful. And the price cannot be beaten. Will buy this product again.

After reading many reviews i chose to buy jack la lane juicer. I find it easy to use and many receipes to follow in their book. Makes great juice without pulp. Fruit and vegtables are ground into a course pulp and dumpedinto the lage container in the back of the unit. The shredder is very sharp and does an amazing job. One must take every precaution when handling the shredder as to notinjure oneself by cutting a finger. A brush is recommended when cleaning it. Be sure to rinse and wash the entire removable parts of the unit as soon asyour preparation of fruits and vegtables are complete as the clean up at thatstage is a breeze. I would not recommend letting it stand and get dry, as it is harder toremove, i am told. I wash mine by hand though it maybe put into a dishwasher.

Love it, still running strong after many, many uses. Don’t put the parts in the dishwasher though.

The jack lalanne is not a top of the line juice machine but it does a great job at making a very delicious cup of juice.

I own a jack la lanne for about 2 years now. Since then, i`ve bought my boyfiend a very expensive breville elite juicer, which is very good, much easier to clean an assemble and dissemble, but it just doesn`t make as much juice out of the same amount of fruit as the jll. The left over pulp is moist and you can still squeeze a little juice out of it with your hands. Than i bought my dad a breville regular juicer, and it is basically the same as the elite, only cheaper. Now for my brother i have bouth the jll. In my opinion it is the best, the pulp is dry, it really takes all the juice out of the fruit. If you want more juice, buy this. If you want ease to use and clean, buy one made of stainless steel.

Easiest to use and clean and lasts forever.

BUNN Nostalgia Electrics SPF-200 Soft Pretzel Factory – pretzel machine

I bought this for my son because he loves soft pretzels. I have not been disappointed. I’ve experimented with different methods, and what he likes the best is crescent roll dough. I just open the package, cut it into 4 long strips and roll or squeeze them into pretzel size and fit them into the mold. I squeeze at the seams so they won’t fall apart when i take them out. After cooking i brush them with butter and dip them in sugar/cinnamon. I bought a crescent dough from trader joe’s that doesn’t have as many additives/preservatives and this works the best. It is a very quick process from start to finish which makes it worth it. Remember that one red light means it is heated up- so you need to let it reheat between batches.

It cooks hotter on the bottom than on the top so makes for uneven baking. The cutters do not cut completely and are hard to clean.

I am a manager of auntie annes pretzels and i was given this as a gift kinda as a joke but its awesome. Size of a pencil twist the dough in the air and then dip it in the bath wash. Bake and then brush with butter and salt and then yummy. Thats the way we do it here at auntie annes. Or brush with butter and then add cinnamon and sugar blend. Or you can add pepperoni on the top while baking and then dip in maranara sauce for pizza pretzels. A big seller here at the store. We also roll in jalapenos in the dough then sprinkle on cheese before baking. And you get the real kind like at the store.

It makes what you might consider pretzels, but not in my book. They have a rather odd texture and are a bit on the soggy side. I think i’ll go back to the guy on the corner of 5th and 42nd st.

I don’t think i ever got over my love affair with the easy bake oven i had as a kid. I had so much fun making cute little pretzels and my kids ate them as fast as i could make them. I used one of the recipes in the booklet it came with but i’m sure you could use your favorite recipe if you wanted. They are great for my grandchildren too, little treats for little hands.

I like this pretzel factory so much. I bake them with my baby girl and this way, she eats more easily.

  • Great for Gluten Free Pretzels
  • This product is Fun and Easy to use
  • A gift for my grandauther

I do everything ‘quick and dirty’. . The pretzel cutter took too long. Instead i used a heart shaped biscuit cutter(any kitchen dept. Carries them)i placed this on the appropriate shaped pretzel mold on the pretzel factory. The hot mold does a good job of stamping the heart shaped dough into the traditional pretzel knot. The cutting goes quick and the pretzel still looks great. I think the pretzel factory soft pretzels are perfectly browned and taste great. The best part you can customize your dough or just buy ready made dough at the store. A little practice and you’ll be a pro. As other posters have mentioned there is a bit of trial and error in rolling out the best thickness for the dough.

She likes it and uses it quit often. We all can have fresh presels at any time.

This was a gift for family and i doubt it was ever used.

Received my pretzel maker today. Very happy with my first try at making gluten free soft pretzels. I adapted the irish soda bread pretzel recipe in the book for my gluten free flour blend and they came out great. I think i need to roll the dough a bit thicker though. Might even try just making half inch diameter dough ropes, giving them a twist and laying them in the molds next time. Tried the recipe again this morning. I made the dough, divided it into 6 portions and rolled each one into a 20 inch rope. Took the ropes and dipped them in soda water.

It is really great i’m looking forward to using it. And i thought the price was quite resonable.

This pretzel machine is perfect for a home snack or meal, they taste delishous. I make them for my family and they love themthis was a great buy.

Don’t know if they made any pretzels yet but they were sure excited to open it. I got this for them because they love the soft pretzels.

As stated in pretzel kit, a lot to go thru to make pretzels @ home. Refurbished unit was a good price.

It cooks the pretzels pretty well, but we misplaced the instruction booklet for the first try, and they came out hard. We haven’t used it since we found the instructions. It was very easy to use, heats up fast, and the size plates are very easy to switch out. We are very pleased with the pretzel maker.

Glad we bought it and tried it.

I didn’t get a recipe book with the pretzel maker???. Can you send me recipe book?.

Makes 2 large or 6 small soft pretzels at one time

My son loves this little pretzel maker.

Dies exactly what is supposed to do. We used with aunt annie’s pretzel mix. It is time consuming but most homemade items are.

My husband loves it and so do i. We can now have pretzels whenever we want and don’t have to buy them on the street corners of new york.

Gave this to my sister for christmas, she loves it. So easy to use and the pretzels taste wonderful.

It came almost the next day, and it is so cute. I am so excited to give this as a gift for christmas.

Non-stick coating

My husband bought this for me as a gift. I scoffed – out of earshot – at the idea of making 2 pretzels at a time when i could bake an entire panful in the oven. Starting from scratch with homemade dough, it took me 2 hrs from start to final clean-up to make one batch of 14 ‘jumbo’ pretzels. Next time will be considerably faster, but this is not a snack to just ‘whip up. ‘the instructions are lacking in some key areas: thickness of dough (about 1/3’), clarity regarding the intent of the spring on the cutters (do not press the spring when trying to cut, but only if the pretzel sticks in the mold after lifting the cutter from the board), how to tell when the pretzels are done (when the green light goes off – no timer necessary). I figured out only at the very end of the first batch that a quick dip in the water-soda bath and then straight to the cooking plate makes for much less floppy dough than the recipe in which 45 seconds of soaking was called for. And no, the plates are not dishwasher safe as advertised in the box. The inside directions clearly indicate otherwise. But the unit cools to touch relatively quickly, the plates pop out and clean easily with soapy water.

This pretzel machine has been an amazing addition to our sunday football gatherings and has been a huge hit. The machine is very easy to use, the recipes are completely on par, and the pretzels are delicious. It is very easy to over bake the pretzels, so i only bake a batch for 3 minutes at a time. For delicious pretzels, use the original recipe in the supplied book, add chopped green onions and minced garlic to the dough, brush baked pretzels with garlic butter, and then dip in the beer cheese recipe provided in the book – perfection.Five stars for this product for ease of use, ease of cleanup, durability, and delicious pretzels.

It is a little different then you might expect. I made pretzels and they tasted good but the outside did not brown up that much and if you leave it in longer to brown you get hard pretzels instead of soft. Would be a fun family activity though as all enjoyed and took part on christmas.

I bought a premade mix (auntie anne’s) and this pretzel maker for a christmas gift for my husband. He used the plate to make 2 larger size pretzels and they turned out delicious. Making pretzel dough is a little time consuming with having to wait for the dough to rise, rolling it out and cutting the exact shapes, but it wasn’t so long that were aren’t willing to do it again. I hope we make them again soon as the pretzels turned out great.

They love making and kneading the dough. While it rises, they can do something else. My daughter loved making the mini pretzels and sprinkling stuff on top( cinnamon/sugar, poppy seeds, salt. The results are some nice tasting pretzels she was happy to share with her friend. They keep well in the freezer and can be reheated in the microwave. Time consuming but most fun things are.

I love soft pretzels and had my eye on this for awhile. I was a little surprised at the skill level required – if kneading and rolling aren’t your thing this can be quite challenging. I prepared the basic recipe straight from the manual but found key info missing – like how many per batch and just how much extra flour was needed to keep the dough from sticking to everything. I also struggled to figure out how long to cook each set without a timer or sound on the machine. It took me over two hours from start to clean-up, so this is not a spur of the moment project. The finished product tasted good but seemed limp, not crispy on the outside. I am not sure i would recommend this product, there are probably easier ways to get good soft pretzels.

Just made a full batch of pretzels. The included recipes are so easy and they turned out fantastic. They tasted just as good as the ones in the mall. My wife doubted that the machine would work but she is now a huge fan.

Convenient cord storage

We enjoyed the pretzel maker, once i find a good pretzel dough recipe i’m sure i’ll get some good use out of this.

BUNN & Decker HS1000 Handy Steamer : B&D Steamer

Okay, title may be a bit of an exageration, but. This steamed had to replace its b&d predecessor that, after about 18 years, finally steamed its last brussels sprout. Simple design, extremely effective workhorse. I steam all kinds of things, from beets to eggs to chicken (and rice, of course). I’ve even made split pea soup in this thing. It’s one of those things that you think you’ll seldom use, until you use it.

Had this for years, still works great.

I could eat broccoli for the rest of my life and never want for anything else. I used to steam it in the microwave but it’s not as good as steaming traditionally. This steamer is very nice, it holds a fair amount of veggies and cooks quickly. The manual comes times for lots of different stuff but that’ll get lost in no time. They were smart and included a sticker on the back with times for some of the more common foods. This is bulkier and messier than just steaming in the same bowl i’ll use to eat the food but it’s not too bad. The pieces do well in the dishwasher and don’t take up too much space if you separate the basket grill and angle the white plastic base plate inside of the basket. It’s a little more hassle but seems worth it. You can even hard “boil” eggs thanks to some clever little divots that prop the eggs up. I made some rice with it and it turned out well.

I had a previous black & decker rice steamer. I dropped the lid & broke it into 2 pieces, so i got another black & decker. Unlike the previous one, with which i was very happy, this one has a window so that you can check the water level in the reservoir and add more water without removing a thing. The water window has a “maximum” and “minimum” level, which is very helpful. It also has a place for adding seasonings of your choice. Some steamers do not have a timer, and i would not have a steamer without one. I know exactly how long it takes to cook rice and set the timer accordingly. It never will be be over or undercooked. I have been using distilled water, and i think it probably helps to extend the life of the steamer.

  • Great little steamer
  • Making veggies has never been so easy!
  • Fantastic!

Black & Decker HS1000 Handy Steamer with Flavor Scenter Screen

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Food steamer and rice cooker for healthy meals in minutes
  • 4-quart steam basket; 5-cup rice bowl; built-in egg holder; drip tray
  • 75-minute timer with auto shut-off and signal; external water-fill inlet
  • Built-in flavor-scenter screen for flavoring foods with herbs and spices
  • Measures approximately 12-1/5 by 9-1/5 by 10-2/5 inches

Since getting this i must say i eat more veggies than i ever have in my life (and i’ve been a vegetarian for over 20 years). It’s really very simple to use and very convenient: rinse veggies and place them in basket, fill the device with water, turn the dial and voila. In the designated time, you have perfectly steamed and delicious veggies. There is a screen in between the basket and the base where you can put spices to enhance your meal with flavor. I use it for rice too and there is a place for eggs in the basket. I love my handy steamer and can’t imagine living without it. One of the most valuable things in my kitchen, without a doubtwhy 4 stars instead of 5?.The basket is made of plastic and after having it for less than a year, the bottom of the basket started to crack.

This black and decker steamer works wonders, i was amazed at how it worked with steaming my veggies. I continue to use this steamer on a weekly basis.

Had a b&d steamer for years but the large bowl cracked. It was still operable but i wanted to replace it. The new steamer has a different (oval) configuration, and requires the use of the flavor assembly in order for the business end to work. The “flavor assembly” allows you to add herbs or other stuff to flavor what you are steaming. It’s alittle corroded after only 3 uses (i added nothing to the actual flavor screen,but the steam probably corroded it a little. For the price it is an excellent way to prepare rice with never, never a sticky mess.

I’ve had this steamer for about 3 months now – purchased mostly for rice but i wanted the added ability to steam veggies as well. Everything i have tried has come out perfectly from rice soft and hard boiled eggs to potatoes to cauliflour, etc. I will agree, as other reviewers have stated, the rice bowl feels a bit flimsy which i don’t like, and you do need to be careful when taking off the lid lest you burn self. These are the only reasons i gave 4 stars _ think with just a bit better material for the bowl and a bit better design on the lid, these issues could have been resolved. Filling it is not really an issue if you use a spouted cup (i use my pyrex measuring cup). The times within the enclosed booklet are dead on. Love this, it has earned its spot on my counter as i use it at least 3x per week – and i just purchased one for my daughter as well.

I’m eating way more veggies because they taste better coming out of this steamer. Because of this, much of my diet has increased veggie intake, and i’ve lost 18 pounds in 3 months. Highly recommend for folks who have trouble getting your vegetables down. I steam fresh string beans in here, as well as asparagus, squash and peppers. They are just so much more yummy. Add goya adobo seasoning to your veggies that you’re steaming (right in the steamer itself, i dont’ really use the flavor scenter screen – i like the seasoning right on the veggies) and you will absolutely love it.

I have never bought an electric steamer before so i don’t know how to compare. The veggies are tasty cooked in this and you can get perfect rice. Once you have it loaded and turned on– you don’t have to remember anything else. The timer will let you know when all done. It does seem a little flimsy and the clear plastic would not take a lot of abuse.

I would not recommend putting the basket in a dishwater as it will eventually get brittle and crack, hence my second one,.

We had a version of this that was about 13 years old. It lasted a long time and finally it began dying on us. I was glad to see that they’re still making this guy. We use it mostly for rice, but we like that it’s oval shaped so you can steam asparagus and other longish vegetables. If you need to make a lot of rice, this is not the steamer for you. You can’t really make more than 1 1/2 cups (before cooking) rice. With the old one, you could do 2 cups. I imagine there’s a better steamer out there, but the price is right on this one and if it’s even half as reliable as its predecessor, i will have gotten my money’s worth.

Not as good as original models but it does the job.

It works like a charm and the design is excellent. I had a black and decker steamer for many years and it finally gave up the ghost, which is why i bought this one. By the way, the new one is not as heavy to lift and easier to clean than my old one.

This steamer does its job well, but the components are quite flimsy. I worry it won’t last as long as black & decker’s earlier model that i had for many years. It does have a greater capacity than the previous version, which i enjoy.

I’ve been looking for a steamer like this for almost a year — and i’m glad i waited until i got the best. Great performance; great price.

Very nice , easy to clean and use.

When my old steamer died, i had a hard time finding another steamer. Our local stores don’t carry them, so i was pleased to see this online. This one really has everything i need. The size is just right, and veggies and rice are done exactly the way i like them. The bottom reservoir is easy to fill, and best of all, the timer is manual-no digital parts to break or replace. Would make a great christmas gift.

We purchased this steamer to replace one we’ve had for years. The old one finally gave up. It’s a great appliance to have; no worries about over cooked vegetables, simple to use and easy to clean. My only concern was that the basket is a little flimsy and not as sturdy feeling as my old basket. Other than that, we got a great product for the price we paid.

We had an earlier model of this steamer for over 17 years and it worked perfectly. Since we have hard water in our area, we finally got too much of a calcium buildup on the heating element so we sadly had to say bye-bye to it, then we purchased this similar product and have used it many times and love it just as much. We mostly use it for rice, but it works great for vegetables too. We are very happy with this steamer and have also purchased one for each of our daughters.

This item was purchased as a rice cooker, however, the 6 slotted boiled egg cooker is fantastic. The egg shells peel off easily. I am considering buying another just to have on hand.

I have been shopping and hopping from one rice cooker to another, in search of perfection + ease of cooking. Recently bought a conventional fuzzy logic rice cooker; the cooker is fantastic, but the non-stick coated inner pot is now a turn-off after my recent education about its evils. So, this food steamer was my next investment. There is no escaping the no brainer rice perfection. You fill the bottom compartment with water all the way to max, place your rice container (with rice plus suggested water measurement) and then turn the thing on. It takes 60 mins to cook 2 cups of dried rice to result in 4 to 6 cups of cooked rice (depending on the variety you use). The timer switch is an old-fashioned dial, but does its job and turns off faithfully at the end. After that is all rice heaven.

BUNN HG Phase Brew 8-Cup Home Coffee Brewer, Excellent Coffee Maker – Great Value

I think this unit makes a better tasting cup of coffee which is why i bought it. The only problem i have with it is the carafe. I cant believe the folks at bunn put this carafe in production. I’ve seen some other comments on this too. You have to pour so slow in order not to drizzle coffee all over your counter (more so when full). I thought at first, maybe i forgot how to pour coffee. Lol but everybody who pours from it, same thing. Other things to consider is that it is very tall.

My krups aroma control type 229 coffee maker has been running strong now for 12 years, but i thought it time to change up my brewing station. I ordered this bunn hg phase brew coffee brewer based off of reviews i read online. This machine made two incredible batches of coffee and then broke by the third time. Not much more i can say about this other than bunn customer support is fantastic.Within 2 minutes on the phone with their customer department, i had a new unit sent out to me and a pre-paid return for the broken item. I am giving this unit 2 stars due to faulty quality control and/or design. I hope the next one works better. For now, i’ll continue using my 12 year old krups. Update:i received my new bunn hg phase brew 8-cup from bunn. As mentioned earlier in my review, they replaced my broken unit, no questions asked.

I love this coffee maker for a lot of reasons and after much research i’m very happy with my choice. Like many i was tired of replacing cheaper units every couple of yrs. That only made mediocre coffee. As a school bus driver up at 5am i need my morning coffee hot and ready to go into a travel mug and this one delivers. I’m the only coffee drinker in the house and the 8-cup brew size is perfect for me. It does make a little noise getting the water temperature just right before starting the brew cycle but not a deal breaker. For a full brew cycle and doesnt have a pause feature. To be honest i’ve never understood the need for the sneek-a-cup option since the coffee is not completely done brewing anyway. When my old coffee maker broke i had to use my back-up french press which makes the best coffee of any brew system but is not very convenient.

Comments from buyers

“Big improvement over BUNN Velocity models.
, Mixed Review – I Own Two
, Love Bunn Products and Especially Their Customer Service and Warranties

I don’t beleive you can find a better coffeemaker for the price. Simple in design and easy to use, this bunn makes a great cup of coffee with no fuss or bother. Could one ask for more?only downside i found is that the carafe is designed so that it doesn’t empty fully of water after being washed so it requires a wipe down. I may try the optional thermal carafe sold on the bunn website as see it this resolves the issue. A very good overall product.

Even after five months of daily use, the coffee tastes like plastic if i leave water sitting in the reservoir or if the reservoir lid is closed between uses. I can’t detect any plastic taste if i pour water in immediately before brewing, so i do that. If you need to let your water off-gas overnight to reduce the chlorine, you’ll have to do that in the carafe. This also means that the clock and timer are worthless to me. The other electronics work oddly too. It frequently flashes its bright, annoying cleaning request just after i’ve cleaned it. Or two days later, just for a half-hour. Sometimes the reservoir heater kicks on an hour after brewing has finished. One time after a power outage the reservoir heater wouldn’t turn on at all.

This coffee maker promises to make delicious, hot, flavorful coffee. And on that promise, it deliversthe water is heated to the perfect temperature before brewing (if it’s too cold, it leaves flavor behind; too hot, it makes coffee taste bitter). Measure out a good amount of coffee grounds, pour in the water, wait about 10 minutes, and you have one of the best cups of coffee you’ve ever tasted. It rivals all the best coffee makers – biggby, starbucks, caribou, pancake house, whatever you love. You can match the quality or get even better with this machine. Here’s why i gave it only 4 stars:i love the shape, design, and size; i was actually looking for a pot that brewed about 8 cups so it worked out perfectly for me. I never thought i’d be questioning the quality of a product made by bunn, but there are a few issues with it. A bunn carafe actually begins to leak when pouring coffee. Maybe i’m pouring my coffee to fast – i don’t know – but it starts to drip down the glass and on the table or floor while i’m pouring it. Second:there’s no drip stopper under the filter. I know you should let the coffee fully brew before pouring a cup, but this coffee maker takes a full ten minutes or more to finish (it warms the water to the ideal temp – like 210 degrees – before it begins the drip cycle) and it seems to continue dripping for a few minutes after finishing. So when i get impatient and pull the pot out to pour myself a cup it drips all over the hot burner and sizzles a little.

Metal filter-basket, no crappy plastic drip-stop nozzle — the coffee drips directly down into the carafe. Cons: the carafe is a bit smaller than most kitchen coffee makers. 8 cups is the absolute top-line max. Also, the reservoir in which water is poured, and heated, appears to be plastic. Notes: doesn’t store preheated water, like most of the commercial-grade bunn machines. You pour water in, it heats up, then brews.

I was a little apprehensive about this brewer – the reviews aren’t quite as great as other bunn brewers – but it’s been great so far. It appears that they’ve corrected the carafe dripping issue and it brews nice hot coffee. I decided to go with this brewer because bunn has such a great reputation but i didn’t want the continuously heated water – i don’t mind waiting the additional 6 minutes the machine takes to heat the water. Based on the reviews it appears that bunn’s customer service is also really good so i figured i had nothing to lose. The unit looks cool but it’s a bit bigger than i expected. I can find bunn filters for much cheaper than amazon at both our local grocer and wal mart. My only complaint, similar to other reviews, is that it is hard to see the water level in the window at top.

I don’t think this model has even been on the market 3 years, and this model comes with a 3-year warranty. I went on the bunn website, emailed them about my concerns, and 2 days later got an email saying they’ve ordered a replacement unit to be shipped to me. The only thing wrong with mine was the paint peeling off of the warming tray; it functioned perfectly otherwise. Bunn uses items that fail during the warranty period as research items to determine how they can improve their product. I’ve had to use their warranty service more than once in my life and they’ve always been very gracious. No arguments, no hassle returns, just the way i like it. I’m so pleased with their customer service, i bought their single-serve machine directly from their website the same day they addressed my phase brew issue. I will continue to support them as they have supported me through the years. Some reviewers here are new to the product and don’t get the concept of how to properly use this machine. If you’re using the bare minimum amount of water, more than likely it won’t brew.

I have been using a bunn nhbb velocity brew 10-cup home coffee brewer for about 6 years. It makes good coffee, and it does it fast (approximately 3 minutes). The reason it is so fast is because it maintains a tank of heated water, so when you press brew it uses this already hot water to brew, and then takes the water you just added and heats it up in preparation for the next brew. Despite the fact that you got good coffee fast, there were a couple bothersome points with this strategy:1) it was an energy hog, constantly maintaining a tank of hot water even though you might only use the maker once a day. 2) the amount of coffee made is not based on how much water you poured into the maker, it is based on how much water was added on the previous brew. So if you poured in 10 cups yesterday, and you want to only make 4 cups today – sorry, you will get 10 cups now, but next time it will be 4. 3) if you don;t use the brewer for a few days, the heated reservoir tends to evaporate, delivering less that the expected amount on the next use. I recently replaced this older model with the bunn hg phase brew 8-cup home coffee brewer. They have managed to correct all of the problems i had with the older brewer. 1) the water you pour in is used to brew the coffee.

Makes a great cup of coffee, nice and strong, very hot. Requires less coffee to get a good cup of coffee than any other unit i have tried. Not as fast as i would like (10 minutes is a long time to wait for my coffee 🙂 )the bad. The carafe leaks when you pour like a sieve. No matter what i try i end up pouring coffee all over the counter. Come on bunn, can’t you design a better carafe?????.

I bought this coffee maker to replace an aged cuisinart maker. As usual with anything i buy from amazon, it was delivered a lot faster than expected. Setting up this unit was a breeze and within minutes, i had it set up to brew my first pot of coffee on auto timer which i am enjoying right now. It is the first hot, straight out of the pot, cup of coffee (bunn, if you use this ‘great line’ for your ads, i want royalties) i ever had from a home coffee brewer. Great job with this coffee maker bunn.

I had a bunn years ago but i switched teams and i’ve a owned few different coffee makers the past few years. The last one was a cuisinart that failed in less than three years. I love the brew that bunn produces but i could not give it five stars. Just as my old unit did, the carafe still drips and spills when you pour. I also have problem with the fill window. It has a ‘frosted’ finish which makes it difficult to see the water level and i have to shake the unit a little to see how much it’s filled. In addition, be sure to stock filters because the bunn brand fits best and is not readily available in local stores. One other thing is the four cup minimum brewing. Although it fills my largest mug with a half cup wasted, this adds up over time to money wasted. What i love about bunn is the water distribution so all of the grinds get wet.

It’s the perfect size and style for a medium sized, modern kitchen. I make coffee at home every day and the 4-cup amount is just the right amount for a large mug or my travel mug. But from day 1 of having this brewer it has said ‘cle’ on the display and despite following cleaning instructions i can’t get that to go away. It doesn’t seem to affect anything so i’ve just been trying to ignore it so i don’t have to go through the hassle of a return. But now i’m also noticing that the warming plate absolutely not does keep a pot of coffee warm for 2 hours; try 30 minutes max. I am disappointed but it still does what i need it to do so i’ll probably keep it rather than deal with a return or warranty situation.

I have bought two of these brewers in the last two months, one for my mother and one for me. I read the plethora of negative reviews after i bought the first one and was quite concerned as my 80 year old mother who lives alone would be disappointed if hers started malfunctioning, leaked, or quit working. We’ve had great success and everyone raves over the coffee we brew. I had a kuerig previously-no comparison, the bunn is a ‘coffeemaker’.As to the people who get the ‘clean’ display often-you must be living where the water is awful. We use reverse osmosis water and have yet to see the ‘clean’ prompt. As for the dribbling pots, i have yet to spill a drop. Well, it’s not silent – set it to come on 5 minutes after your alarm as a snooze alarm, if the sound doesn’t get you up the aroma a few minutes later will.

When it comes to the features of this brewer it’s possible to find some faults, but in the end, there’s no denying that it simply makes a good cup of coffee that isn’t bitter. I think this is because they got the brew temperature and brew time about right. I measured the stream flowing into the pot at 200 f with a thermopen, which is in the recommended range. We’ve only had it one week, but we haven’t seen any of the reliability problems or cleaning issues described in other reviews. Our carafe pours great without any leaks or dripping. It does make noise when the water is being heated. It’s comparable to the noise other drip makers during their brewing cycle, possibly a little more, but we don’t find it intolerable. However, it’s definitely there. Once the heating phase is done there is no noise during the brewing cycle. Put a smidgen less than 4 cups of water into the system, and the water will heat but nothing will come out.

Definitely makes hot coffee. It is also very easy to use, compared to a cuisinart i was using before which had a couple of extra parts that had to be messed with when making coffee. The coffee pot definitely drips when pouring. Always have to pour over the sink. Refuses to make 4 cups, when i put the water to the 4 cup line, it just heats the water without ever advancing to the brew stage. As soon as i up the water to the 6 cups line, it starts brewing. Timer button sticks sometimes, which is a problem because it thinks i am trying to set the time on the timer rather than turning it on. Overall, makes a good cup of coffee, but definitely has some minor defects.

Over the last 20 years, i’ve owned several home coffee makers and this one has brewed the best tasting coffee; however, my experience has been it requires about 10% more coffee than i was using in my delonghi brewer. Brew times are under 10 minutes, which is good. At first, i had a hard time pouring coffee without spilling a little, and this due largely to how the pour spout is designed on the carafe; this is no longer a problem now that i figured out to pour a lot slower than i’ve been used to. I also like the very modern looking design of this unit–it’s much better looking than most of the other bunn home brewers i’ve seen. Lastly, my hope now is this appliance will be reliable and last for several years. If so, i will stick with bunn.

I purchased this particular brand and unit because of the prior reputation of the company’s products and their supportive customer service and easy parts repairs; and also for the small size serving we preferred. It arrived quickly and worked the first two days as expected and then the heating element failed to work. I called the customer service center at bunn, explained the problem and they shipped a new replacement model the same day. A small chip was defective on the unit and they simply replaced it with a new one. No problems what so ever with their support. This unit is great for the size cups we wanted. It makes a louder sound initially than prior models when it heats the water but the resulting extra hot coffee is simply great. The clean see through design and engineering is what makes this better than most others i reviewed. I happen to be an engineer by education and wanted a well designed product with great customer support and parts availability when ever needed.

My husband and i love our fresh morning coffee, ground in a burr grinder and brewed at the perfect temperature to extract the maximum flavor from our beans. We just purchased our second phase brew coffee brewer. The first one still sits on the counter at our primary residence where we use it daily. The second one sits at our secondary residence. We use it daily when we are here. I have mixed feelings about this appliance. First of all, it does brew coffee at the perfect temperature. It makes the best tasting pot of joe i’ve ever had. But there are a couple of downsides.

I have used my bunn hg phase brewer for 8 months now and have really been pleased with this product. It is an unconventional looking coffee brewer and at 15 1/2 inches high it could present storage problems in some kitchens. I choose this model over the other bunn velocity models because i did not want to use more energy in keeping a 10 cup or more container constantly hot so that there could be ‘instant’ coffee brewing (in 4 minutes or less). With this model i grind and prepare my coffee the night before and use the convenient ‘auto start’ button to set the timer to start brewing in the morning at about the time that i wake up. It generally takes about 8 – 10 minutes to prepare hot, delicious coffee that is at just the right temperature. As other reviewers have mentioned it is somewhat noisy as it heats up the water prior to dispensing but i have come to actually enjoy the sounds which are then followed by the aroma of fresh coffee in the mornings.

I originally gave this coffee maker five stars, because it simply made what i can honestly call the best coffee i’ve ever had. Unfortunately, that was, to quote camelot lyricist alan jay lerner, ‘for one brief, shining moment. ‘ in less than a year, the heating element died, and bunn does not make any repairs on home coffee makers. The coffee maker was still under warranty, and i will give bunn credit for having an outstanding customer service team, but sadly they were no longer making this model. Apparently for americans on the go, 10 whole minutes to make a superlative pot of coffee was just too darn long, so bunn discontinued it. They did replace my phase brew with another of their models that makes a pot of coffee in 3 minutes, by keeping a tank of water at brewing temperature constantly, 24/7, a concept i’m not fond of. Worse, the replacement coffee maker does not make coffee as good as the phase brew, and i am nowhere near as enthusiastic with the final product as i had been. The customer service rep said she had heard that they might start making something comparable to the original phase brew in the near future, but that hasn’t happened yet. The one original phase brew maker amazon has lists at something like three times the price i originally paid, and since they conk out so quickly, it’s just not worth it. I hope all those fast-paced americans whose impatience spelled the death of this maker make good use of those 7 extra minutes they have gained.

After having this coffee maker for 2 month it failed. Nothing lights up on the display. When the ‘brew’ button is pressed, you can hear the click but the heating element never comes on. The phase brew makes good coffee when it works. Wish i had not recommended it to my friends now. Contacted bunn and they sent me a new phase brew before i sent them the broken one. They also paid for all shipping. Good companymay 2011 update: 2nd phase brew heating element failed may 10, 2011. Bunn sent me another new phase brew in two days. I still like this bunn coffee maker and the company.

I ordered this coffee brewer after reading other reviews online about it about how hot the coffee is and the good taste. My main goal for coffee is for it to be very hot which in my experience never happens with home coffee brewers. This phase brew is the hottest coffee i have made from a home coffee brewer but, in my opinion, i would like it even hotter, but, i know that is probably not possible. A lot of the reviews said that the coffee was strong but, i found it to be just regular and not strong which is fine. The carafe is as other reviewers stated two cups smaller than a regular size which fine unless you have company over or you drink more than four large mugs of coffee. A full carafe will make about 4 large mugs of coffee. The height is no problem as it fits under my kitchen cabinets. I did have a problem with it as the ‘clean’ message started coming on a week after i purchased it which meant i was supposed to clean the minerals, etc. So, even though it was one week old, i cleaned it and the light came back on.

Bunn Nostalgia Electrics RRF300DNCBLK 3 : Sparkly and Retro

Love the fridge but it had a few dings and dents when it arrived.

Beautiful overall appearance and function however we have been unable to get the cover to fit over the water dispenser on the front of the door. Had to drill a hole for the bottom screw to fit into but the side tabs don’t snap in to anything so it was not flush against door. This does not affect function but appearance. Will have to make more holes in door front for tabs (and hopefully not damage it) but my husband was too frustrated to complete and had to walk away.

Loved it for almost 3 years, then dead.

Great looking fridge, stays super cold. Ive used it about a year now. The dispenser on the front is perfect in the man cave for some some ice cold shots. The packaging it came in was poor as the back corner came severely dented and paint chipped. I was too lazy and impatient to return it so i just set it up where the corner faces away. Also, the metallic looking grip and dispenser cover are actually just cheap plastic so be careful putting them on as my dispenser cover broke while trying to snap it in place. Nothing a little crazy glue won’t fix, but hey i still felt it was a bargain as i love this thing.

Purchased this for my husbands office all of his coworkers think it’s the coolest thing.

Bought at nebraska furniture mart for $78. Now i see what a steal that was. Easy to assemble and works great. I’m not using the water dispenser since i don’t like water and worry it’d be hard to keep clean. It’s in my office and i’ve gotten a ton of compliments.

Super quiet and can get very cold, we never have to turn it above setting number “3” to keep our sodas nice and cold.

The shipping was terrible and it came with bumps and scratches. The fridge works fine and it’s beautiful.

However back corner was damaged in shipping .

With this fridge in your room no way your not in a frat.

I’ll start out with saying this product is probably more of a 3. 5 star than 3 star, but it slides that way when forced to pick. I looked at a lot of mini fridges to give as gifts and kept coming back to this one due to its dispenser function. It’s unique, cool and useful at the sametime. The unit looks great from the pictures and it seems to be everything you’d want in a mini fridge (although the freezer i tend to think is a waste of space). But in reality it’s a lot cheaper than it should be (in a bad way). There’s a cardboard backing where the components are (what?), the “chrome” pieces are simply chromed plastic (really disappointing) and the overall design doesn’t lend any confidence in the company or manufacturing behind it. To add to the annoyances, whether it is the distribution company or the manufacturing company for their shoddy packaging, these things seem to come dented by default. I thought perhaps i’d be the exception to the rule but to no avail, there’s a solid dent in the side of the door. Fortunately it’s black and not noticeable.

Got this product boxed very nicely. Gets cold and stays cold like a normal frige. Be sure to consistently wash or rinse out liquid (water/juice) despenser.

I love his dispenser water, the red color, and i received it without scratches or damage. It’s a little noisy, and his components looks cheaper.

I’ve never used the water dispenser bit. But i guess it’s still nice to have.
