I really like my new Vitamix Series 300 Blender..it has a powerful motor....things blend in no time..and really like the recipe book. I can't wait to try more recipes, and watching the video was very helpful. I REALLY like the shorter, wider container versus the tall container and like this model as it fits perfectly under my cupboard, even with the lid on, so always stays in sight and I love the ruby color!

This zester/grater is as cool as the citrus juicer I bought from Chef's. I found a great lemon cake recipe on Dr. Weil's website and the zester/grater and citrus juicer helped me in baking this great lemon cake. I can't say enough about this zester/grater. It is so easy to use and grates very finely...great clean-up...can't wait to use for other purposes in the kitchen.

This is way cool! When I saw this in the Chef's Catalog, I just knew I had to purchase one. I'd been looking for a citrus juicer--this one works like a dream. It is so easy to use and it gets every drop of juice. A very good product!
