I had one of these and somehow lost it -I think it was borrowed and never returned- so luckily I received another one for Christmas. I didnt know how much I missed this until it was gone. I use this hand blender at least every other day. It is easy, small, and convenient PLUS it gets the job done in seconds. There is no need to bring out any other mixer for small jobs when you have this available. LOVE IT!

Lodge Logic Dutch Oven with Loop Handles : Lodge, the world's leader in cast-iron cookware, crafts this revolutionary Dutch oven that is preseasoned so it's ready to cook right out of the box. Designed to replicate the all-encompassing heat of an oven on the stovetop, Dutch ovens are ideal for meat-and-vegetable dishes such as savory pulled pork or chicken cacciatore. The 5- and 7-quart capacity is perfect for family-sized servings and a champ for baking cornbread, producing a perfectly crispy exterior and light, moist interior. The loop handles make the simple-to-clean pan easy to maneuver on the stovetop, in the oven or over the campfire. Made in the USA. Lodge Logic's preseasoning process penetrates the metal's pores thoroughly and uniformly, so it looks and performs better than traditional home seasoning. You still get the even heating, superior heat retention, and inherently stick-resistant finish that has made cast-iron cookware a favorite of professional chefs. Backed by legendary performance and durability, Lodge has crafted cast-iron products since 1896. Product Features Precision molded cast iron features exacting wall thickness Preseasoned to a treasured black patina with 100% natural soy-based vegetable oil Heirloom preseasoned finish lets you cook with the pan right out of the box Preseasoned coating is impermeable to odors and stains Superior distribution and retention of heat promotes faster cooking times Foods will not react with the cast-iron metal Easy-clean surfaces are scratch-resistant Side pouring lips for easy transfer of foods Side and lid loop handles make the pan easy to maneuver Versatile for gas, electric, ceramic and induction stovetops Oven- and broiler-safe at all temperatures Safe for refrigerator and freezer Hand wash Made in the USA

Buy Lodge!

First let me say if you are going to buy cast iron I would buy nothing but the Lodge brand. They hold up to time and just about anything you can throw at them. We are campers and my favorite thing about my dutch oven is I can use it outside to make biscuits, stews, anything that I would normally cook inside my home. This is also great in case of bad weather in case you need something that is diverse to use indoors or out. If you buy this and plan on using it outdoors I would suggest buying the 'lid lifter' also since he can become very hot.

I had wanted one of these for years and my husband bought me one for Christmas. I think I have cooked more since Christmas than I did all last year because I LOVE this stand mixer. It has performed perfectly and I have had no problem. The only problem my husband had in picking it out was the color. Yes, red is my favorite color but what if I decide to change my kitchen color one day. Personally I think I would go with the stainless color or black.

I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. They remind me so much of my grandmother's cannister she had in her kitchen. A friend of mine ordered these and I am also about to order them. They look a lot better in real life than the photo.
The price is great now with them on sale!!
Like the other poster said I wish they had about 2 more for other items.

I have used several of these that were far more expensive so when my daughter wanted one I got this one since it was less expensive and she was newly married and I really didnt know how much she would use it.
Well...it turns out this is equal or better than the more expensive ones that I have had in the past. Cuisinart makes fantastic products at an affordable price...Now this is on MY LIST of buying next instead of another brand.

Great Knife and Great Price

Actually I didnt know how far electric knives had come until I purchased this little guy. After years of using a cheapo Walmart electric knife and hearing the bogged down hum it had when put under too much pressure, I was delighted to see a great knife such as this that had power! No more bogged down humming sound.
I have noticed with all of Cuisinart cutlery that it is always an exceptional buy. They can slice through anything with such ease but are less than half the price of other knives that can do the same job.
A+++ Cuisinart!
