This apple slicer is head and shoulders above the others in terms of quality. No plastic here - just a nice, heavy-duty one piece slicer. Creates perfect wedges for snacks in one motion. Can use for pies, etc; We use it for snacks. I bought one like this for one of my daughter's a few years ago, and my other daughter said that she wanted one for Christmas. I had trouble finding the same steel-only slicer for her, and was lucky to find it at Chef's Catalog. Another top retailer I visited only had a plastic/steel one - kind of "cheesy," I thought. This one is far superior, I believe, with NO plastic.

I purchased this teakettle for its appearance, and it looks great in our kitchen! Our former teakettle stopped whistling years ago, and it's wonderful to have a fully functioning teakettle again. It's easy to fill and clean. It is quite pricey compared to other kettles, but was worth it to me for its stylish appearance. It should last a long time, so if you think about spreading the cost over xx years, it doesn't seem so bad.

Looks great on the counter - has really nice lines that coordinate well with our kitchen appliances. Makes fabulous toast! (and lots of it, when making breakfast for a group - 6 slices at a time is a Godsend) Broiling works wonderfully as well; baking too. There's nothing negative that I can say about this "smart oven." It is expensive compared to other toaster ovens on the market, but it you have the budget for it, it's worth it. I have high hopes for this oven lasting for years...and if it does, it will turn out to be a good value in spite of the price.
