Being an accomplished cook, I really didn't think I would use this much, BUT, I was wrong! I have used this hand immersion blender for pureeing vegetables for soups, chopping nuts, making smoothies/drinks, and making creamy mashed potatoes. It's super easy to clean and the storage case is awesome for keeping everything organized. Even my boys are using it (and cleaning up afterward!) it's so easy to use! I may "lose it" to my son who is starting out on his own. That's ok...he loves to cook!

My breadmaker was OLD and needed replaced. After researching, I chose the Zojirushi BB-PAC20 and so far...I love it! It was super easy to learn to use, it is a quiet machine, and results were great! I had wanted to try a Prairie Bread that I had tasted from Whole Foods. I think I got close. I like how this machine handles whole grains/seeds/nuts and makes large loaves. Now on to trying more recipes. My family loves the results as well. Yum!
