I love my new soft serve icecream machine. It is easy to use and performs as advertised. Clean up is also easy. I didn't care for the vanilla recipe. It was too creamy for my taste, so I am going to experiment with more milk and less cream next time.

As we age we lose some of our gripping power. This products gives just the amount of leverage needed to open jars without extreme effort.

This is a grear product that works as advertised.It looks good and is simple to use and clean. You can adjust to get the eggs exactly as you like. turn it on and wait till it tells you your eggs are ready. I wish the level water line was easier to see, but I can live with that small problem.

I am extremely pleased with the performance of my griddler. It looks good, is fast and efficient and is easy to use. Clean up is a snap as the grills go into the dish washer. So far I have used it for bacon and eggs and grilled sandwiches. A great addition to any kitchen.
