For the Bigger Jobs

Boiling a small amount of pasta in my 3 quart was not working. This provides correct water:pasta ratio and in less than 10 minutes for spaghetti. Well built and heavy but no too heavy and just what I need for those occasional bigger jobs when 3 quart is too small and 6 quart is too big. Wish I'd bought this years ago. Bought it on sale too and price was great in comparing to others. I fill out all these reviews in such a positive way but I've yet to not like anything I've purchased.

Love it Tender

Just a piece of art to even look at but also works well on tenderizing tough cuts of round steak for frying up for steak and biscuits. Takes a little bit of elbow grease starting off but really easy to use overall. Cleans up well. Maybe pricey to some but does the best job of any tenderizer I've had so far in 55 years. Built well enough to leave in a will, probably!

We now have these in green, red and black. Green are for veggies, red for meat and black for paper and we use them all daily. They come apart for easy dishwashing and snip well. I give these for presents and all have enjoyed the use they give.

Dualit Lite Toaster : Commercial-quality Dualit toaster operates efficiently and exactly every time, durably constructed to toast hundreds of slices an hour with precise browning accuracy. Extra-wide 1 1/2" slots feature inner wire racks that tighten to secure slices of bread and release to automatically accommodate bagels, Texas toast, even bakery buns. Convenient high-lift mechanism elevates toasted breads and makes smaller slices easy to grasp and remove. Bread stays fresh and warm in the toaster until you're ready to serve; pops up using the lever control, which also allows you to check the level of doneness at any time. The "on" light has dual function: glows during the toasting process or will flash when toasting buns to monitor level of doneness. Bagels toast exactly the way they should be done, without any burnt edges. A separate bagel button controls the browning of only the inside, not the outer crust of the bagel, while gently warming the edges. With the precision dial on this Dualit toaster, the level of browning adjusts from 1-8, to satisfy everyone's tastes at the breakfast table or brunch. Prepares frozen breakfast waffles and pastries to perfection, allowing complete thawing before browning by using the defrost function. The smooth, classic design of the Dualit toaster complements any kitchen decor. Sleek retro-style features soft-touch black exterior with insulated, commercially-rated, polished stainless-steel. Innovative engineering, stylish profiling and outstanding durability have made Dualit a recognized name for superior quality since 1945.

Great for Long Slices

Got the larger 4-slice model. Love the look of this toaster and the outcome of whatever bread we've toasted. The long slots are great for this oversize cottage loaf bread, and the defrost and bagel features are terrific because they work great and were just what we wanted, being bagel lovers. Easy to wipe off with damp cloth and looks new and shiny. Easy to remove crumb tray as well. Nothing bad to say about this toaster. It looks great on my counter just being there.

Looks like leather, feels like a cushion

Heard this style mat was comfortable and sure enough this is a great product for standing in the kitchen. But the appearance is terrific too. The Flora design Live Oak color, with no gloss, really looks like fine etched leather and gives my kitchen floor such class. Surprised how great it looked so I'm happy with the comfort and the look. Seems pricey but is a very nice product. No idea how long it will last but it seems pretty tough so far.

Used daily and so well-built--with stainless steel bowl press--appears it will outlast me! Kudos to the designer of this one. Really does get the juice out and easily. Chef's had several to choose from and I'm glad I picked this one. It's a dandy. My mom had me order one for her she was so impressed.
