KitchenAid Stand Mixer Attachment Set

Stainless Slicer Shredder RVSA

KitchenAid Stand Mixer Attachment Set | Stainless Slicer Shredder RVSA

It slices. It dices. It... Oh, wait, that's something else. But it does slice (thick and thin slices). And it shreds, too (fine and coarse). And I believe in today's slang, when something "shreds" that means it's really cool. So, I'd have to ...

KitchenAid Professional Hand Mixer

KitchenAid Professional Hand Mixer | 9 Speed KHM9PWH White

There's a place for the KitchenAid stand mixer, and there's a place for KitchenAid's new 9-speed hand mixer. Some folks may think I'm old fashioned because I'm not head over heels in love with the stand mixer. It keeps me a little too distant from the food I'm preparing.

Cuisinart 12 Cup Brew Central Coffee Maker, Brushed Stainless Steel | Digital w/ Charcoal Water Filter DCC-1200

Oh, look. It's another black and brushed stainless steel kitchen appliance. How nice. I'm not sure what is retro about the Cuisinart DCC-1200's appearance. The boxiness, maybe? Certainly not the color. Brushed stainless steel is very modern. All the newest kitchens come with ...

Better Chef Juicer

Kitchen Stainless Steel Blade IM550V

Better Chef Juicer | Kitchen Stainless Steel Blade IM550V

It's too bad the Better Chef's designers didn't think to make the IM550V black and white. If they had, it would have looked like a penguin. How could would that be? A penguin on your kitchen counter? But, perhaps, unlike Lyle Lovett, the Best Chef designers don't "go ...





Breville Ikon Toaster

Digital Stainless 2 Slice CT70XL

Breville Ikon Toaster | Digital Stainless 2 Slice CT70XL

Toasters are so yesterday. I mean all they do is toast and take up counter space. Breville's CT70XL is 8 inches high, 5 inches long, and has a depth of 11 inches. That's a fair amount of counter space for an appliance that only does one thing.

To be fair, ...

Cuisinart Stand Mixer

Kitchen 5 1/2 Quart 12 Speed SM-55BK Black

Cuisinart Stand Mixer | Kitchen 5 1/2 Quart 12 Speed SM-55BK Black

If the KitchenAid Heavy Stand Mixer is the Hummer of stand mixers, then Cuisinart's SM-55BK is the Volvo. At least aesthetically speaking anyway. And if we're talking about looks alone, then I guess all KitchenAid Stand Mixers are what? Mercedes?

Gallon Cookie Jar

Kitchen Food Storage Glass Cover 85545RAH

Gallon Cookie Jar | Kitchen Food Storage Glass Cover 85545RAH

Here's what I love about glass. It's see-through. I'm all about recycling plastic containers -- they work especially well for leftovers. But unless you have some sort of special power, you cannot see through plastic. This means they're not so good for storing things like lentils, popcorn kernels, cotton ...

Kitchen Food Storage | Brushed Stainless Steel

Prime Pacific Bread Box | Kitchen Food Storage | Brushed Stainless Steel

I don't often see bread boxes in people's homes anymore. I don't know why. I doubt that people are eating any less bread. Some bread can be kept in the refrigerator, of course, but most breads will dry out that way.

Sunbeam Mixmaster Stand Mixer

Kitchen 12 Speed Chrome 2379

Sunbeam Mixmaster Stand Mixer | Kitchen 12 Speed Chrome 2379

It's natural to be suspicious of a product that costs less than half the cost of its competition. The price difference usually means one of two things- either the product isn't up to snuff, or the other brand's version is over-priced. It's sometimes hard to know which might be ...

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?

You just might be able to figure that out with this glass and stainless steel cookie jar. No, it's not bewitched. It's made of glass and it holds sweet goodies that could potentially be sticky or chocolatey, which sounds to me like a ...

Kitchen Cookie Storage Jar

Black Honey Slurping Bear Statue

Kitchen Cookie Storage Jar | Black Honey Slurping Bear Statue

I'm not sure what it is about having animals in the kitchen. Maybe, maybe farm animals make sense. A dish towel with a goose applique. Little piggy salt and pepper shakers. Cow-shaped cream pitchers. Not that any one kitchen has all of these animals adorning the walls. ...

Antique Cookie Jar | Kitchen Storage Container Embossed Copper

There's a reason why people register for gifts for their wedding. I just wish someone had told my aunt that before my wedding this summer. If you really know the couple well, you might venture away from the wedding registry. But don't assume you know the couple's taste. Everyone ...





Senseo Supreme Gourmet Coffee Maker

Stainless LCD Display HD7832

Senseo Supreme Gourmet Coffee Maker | Stainless LCD Display HD7832

I'm sorry but somebody has to say it: The Sanseo HD7832 Supreme is supremely ugly. What's with the futuristic, stream-lined, silver phallic symbol? Is this some kind of George-Jetson-meets-Mr.-Coffee wet dream? It's plain and simply ugly.

Why is it that the style for the future is always ...

Sharp Compact Microwave | Countertop Black R-230KK 800 Watt

First off, I don't believe in microwaves. I know that may offend some. Perhaps you may even think I'm a heretic of American culture and values. But the truth is microwaves scare me. All that stuff leeching out of the plastics and into your food. Yikes!

Bunn's new reservoir-style home brewer makes up to 10 cups (50 ounces) of coffee in just 3 minutes. That's faster than the Tassimo. Of course, the Tassimo can brew 10 different drinks in a little over 10 minutes. But the BUNN has a key feature which the ...





Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker

Gourmet Single Serve Brewer TAS4511UC

Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker | Gourmet Single Serve Brewer TAS4511UC

There's a reason this wonder brewer has such a long, convoluted, scientific name; if Dr. Frankenstein had made a barista it would have been Bosch's TAS4511UC.

This isn't to say that the beverages that Tassimo brews for you aren't faster than what your neighborhood cafe will serve up. Or that they ...





Breville Electric Gourmet Wok

Non Stick 14 Inch EW30XL

Breville Electric Gourmet Wok | Non Stick 14 Inch EW30XL

The chef in Nicole Mones' The Last Chinese Chef would not approve of Breville's Electric Gourmet Wok. Of course, she was going for authenticity and not convenience.

AeroPress Coffee Espresso Maker

Kitchen 4 Cup Press

AeroPress Coffee Espresso Maker | Kitchen 4 Cup Press

I love the smell of coffee. In fact, I'd rather smell the coffee beans at the perfume counter than any bottle of perfume on the market. It's a rich, mouth-watering smell that tricks me time and time again. I say 'tricks' because 9 times out of 10, when ...
