1.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for....a dollar's worth of cheap plastic., March 24 2016

It took a very long time from order to delivery, by the time it arrived the person for whom it was ordered had left the country for home. They are very cheaply made, have asked to return them to the seller. Would not recommend.

At first, I really liked this slicer. However, it has become awkward to use because the blade handle sometimes sticks & we have to wrestle it all the way back in order to open the slicer. As well, saying it is a one-handed slicer is a bit over the top unless you have the muscles of a weight lifter....I have found it takes one hand to hold the base steady (even on a rubber mat) & the other to operate the blade. Do I regret purchasing this (only cost me $10 on clearance)...no but I would not replace it when it finally has its last day.

I really like this yogurt maker....would prefer a glass insert rather than plastic but once the yogurt is made I transfer it to a glass container. I also would have preferred for the count down to be in 1/2 hour increments ( I was spoiled by my Donvier yogurt maker) but it isn't a deal breaker . The great upside to this maker is only one container to clean & that it goes into cool mode once the yogurt has fermented to your desired consistency. The blurb on this maker says it makes up to 1.5 litres....I would caution that you don't go over so much as a smidge over this measure because it tops out exactly at 1.5 litres. I heat the milk to 82 C, cool it to the starter add temperature, then pour the milk into the Cuisinart. The consistency of my 2% yogurt after 11 hours was fine (I don't add anything to it as thickener) because I strain it to make Greek yogurt. I found the taste quite tart but that is how I prefer my Greek yogurt. Also, the maker is quite compact i.e. easy to store. ....FYI: After reading some of the reviews there seems to be a bit of confusion as to whether to heat the milk prior to adding to the
yogurt maker....I emailed Cuisinart with the question "If you choose not to heat the milk to 82C .... would you wait until the refrigerated milk gets to room temperature before adding the starter?" Answer: The milk must be heated and brought to required temperature before adding any culture to it. Hope this clears up any confusion. Just adding....Mar. 5....have loved this yogurt maker so much that not only have I purchased an extra insert & lid but yesterday I order another maker! Twice a much yogurt in one making....fantastic if you love yogurt cheese as much as I do.

This mascara does not do as it claims....fibres are gummy & really do not adhere very well to the wet mascara that is applied first.

It appears as it will do the job for which I ordered it. However, the neck band had to be taken apart because it had been sewn in twisted so that the sliding buckle was against my neck. It wasn't worth the trouble of returning it. So for the price, it was disappointing as I was expecting more quality control.

I agree with the other reviewers as to it being too small to hold many berries.

I tested it with both cherries & green grapes....it kept the fruit fresh & firm for 2 weeks. I also like the choice of capacity positions because in the collapsed position you can store smaller amounts.

This comes with no instructions in English & I don't want to apply anything that close to my eyes without knowing how to do it! This should be indicated by the seller on Amazon. This is something I would definitely not recommend....
