This is a well built tool that is very user friendly.I used it on steak and it did a great job while being very easy to use. I only marinated the meat briefly but the flavor was throughout the meat as I hoped.
I washed it in the dishwasher with good results but it is nice to know that it can be disassembled if needed.

These are not too big or small to be very useful and they do make adding ingredients to my Kitchen-aid mixer much easier. They are also great for pouring thinner batters into popover pans and muffin tins.
I know these will be very handy at canning time, too.I foresee fewer messy jar rims due to their shape.
I like them and and I am happy with my purchase.

This is a great machine!
While you may want to refer to the book in the beginning this machine is awesome.
The slicing blade sliced bananas, onions and potatoes with ease and precision. I made popovers and cranberry bread quickly and both turned out perfect. I chopped onions, carrots and celery for a hot dish and found it easy to get just the right size dice on each vegetable.
I had read the reviews and noticed that some people had some issues with the slicing blade being hard to adjust to just the desired thickness. The machine is so powerful and quick that I can see that may be tricky but I got it handled buy using pulse just briefly to preview my slices. Also the correct pressure on the food hopper is important. The book is helpful here. You will find that it is easy after you get acquainted with it.
When making batters, I found it helpful to put the liquid ingredients in the bowl before the flour mixture to minimize bowl scraping.
All in all this is a great addition to my kitchen and I hardheartedly recommend it. I know I will use it often. Given its excellent quality I look forward to a long life of pleasure with it.

This is a quality pan that works great. No sticking here and heats just right for great big popovers. I'm glad I ordered 2 and that they fit my 30" range perfectly on one rack. They each fit on one half-pan perfectly.

These scissors are nice and sharp and STAY TOGETHER in use better than any others I have used of this type.
I like the bright green color that makes them easy to find.
