I have all my knives in this unit with room to spare. The quality seems very high, especially when you consider the price. I comined to smaller units into this one which takes up less space and holds more knives. I don't use the swivel portion much but it is a nice option and it does not interfere with my use of the product. This is a nice, good value product.

This is a great unit. Very compact for storage. It performs very well. This unit has 4 heat settings instead of the traditional 3. The extra unit is high which cooks hotter than most brands. Low is the equivelent to most brands hottest setting. The programming option and auto warm are great features, as is the retractable cord. I also have the Delonghi 5 qt that I use for larger meals. Both are great but if I had to pick one, it would be the Cuisinart.

Luminarc Cow Butter Dish : Ensure there is plenty of spreadable butter at the table with this French country covered butter dish embossed with the source! Thick-walled glass keeps 4, 1/4-lb. sticks or 1 lb. brick at the ideal serving temperature. This butter dish with lid is also the ideal size to store a brick of cream cheese. Dishwasher-safe. Made in France.

I really like this dish for butter. There is only one flaw that I can see which is the top is a little hard to get off because there is no handle or something to pull on. Otherwise I love it!

We have owned several large bread machines. As empty nesters the larger machine no longer works for us. This machine is a great performer. It is compact so it fits anywhere and stores easily. Its operation is quiet and smooth and it makes very good french and white bread as well as dough. The crust is perfect and the texture can be firm or soft depending on which recipe you use. The one lb loaves are a perfect one day supply of bread for two people. We usually bake every day because there are zero preservatives and the bread ages quickly. I really see no negatives for this machine. If there is an equal small bread maker to this little gem I have not seen it.
