I received the cherry/olive pitter last week and was excited to get it because I had some great (very large) olives that had the pits in them. I used the pitter and had quite a bit of difficulty. It may have been because the olives were too large, so I am withholding judgement until I can try it on smaller fruit (cherries or smaller olives). I'm optimistic that this will be a handy tool - I just need to try it on smaller fruit to be sure.

I have not used these yet but was pleasantly surprised when I opened them. They are large and appear to be well constructed. I have been using the cute little yellow corn cob holders that break every time you look at them. I don't believe I will be having that issue with these and they are large enough you can comfortably hold an ear of corn without getting the corn all over your hands. I believe tyhis will be a really good and appreciated purchase (now that corn-on-the cob season has almost reached Wisconsin!

This is fantastic! I can't believe how quiet it is or how quickly it handles big jobs. It is so easy to use, clean, and store. It is well worth the purchase price and has been a great addition to my kitchen.

I had been wanting a self-contained ice cream freezer for some time but had hesitated buying one because of the comments I had read from other users about noise and durability. The reviews on this unit were good so I purchased it. I am so glad I did. It is not noisy and appears to be very well made. Clean-up is easy. I love the convenience of being able to make gelato (which is WONDERFUL) any time I want, with no worries about having a frozen tub available. The gelato is different from ice cream - less air and the flavor is incredibly intense. The recipes that come with the unit are great. I would not hesitate to recommend this unit. Just make sure you have adequate convenient storage space for it.

I bought two of these knife blocks to help me organize my extensive knife collection. They are great. My only disappointment was I could not fit the two (one large and the other small) side by side into one drawer. They do protect my good knives and keep them orderly.

I was impressed with how convenient this dispenser is and how little hand soap it requires to be effective. The suction device on the bottom to keep it from slipping is great. This will definitely pay for itself very quickly. I will be ordering more for the rest of my house and for gifts.
