Cuisinart: A Cook or Baker's Best Friend...

We have loved Cuisinart products for dozens of years. They are our kitchen companions, always ready to be of service and lend a helping hand. We are all aware that they are known for their food processors…the best on the planet, in every size for every budget and every use. There is no second choice. However, they also manufacture many small kitchen appliances including toaster ovens, microwaves, blenders, juicers and their awesome specialty appliances include beverage makers, pressure cookers, coffee makers, bread makers, steamers and fondue sets. Their baking sheets or pans are fabulous, lasting for years. Cuisinart always has something fun, new and innovative to help us out in the kitchen. They save us time, allowing more quality time with our families, especially during the holidays when we are constantly in the kitchen. It’s hard to imagine a life of cooking and baking without Cuisinart. Here are some of our favorites…

Elite Collection 14-Cup Food Processor… Loaded with 100- watts of extreme power, this food processor, with its nested bowl design (14 cup, 11 cup and 4 ½ cup) screams productivity. The unit includes a reversible shredding disc, adjustable slicing disc, double blade, chopping/mixing blade and last, but not least, the SealTight lid that allows you to reach maximum potential without spills while providing protection. Extraordinary features include a simple on/off locking system, wide-mouth tube for easy loading of food into the bowl, blue LED indicator lights, retractable cord and dishwasher safe parts for easy cleanup. The possibilities are endless.

EM-600 Buono Tazza Coffee/Espresso/Cappuccino maker. This gorgeous, simple-to-use, stainless-steel machine is incredible. It's the Porsche of all coffeemakers. If you are a coffee enthusiast, you will certainly be celebrating with this exceptional coffeemaker that will brew perfect espresso and all traditional coffee beverages at the touch of a button, without moving the cup! A removable milk tank sends hot and creamy, frothed  milk right into the cup for hands-free, barista-quality Italian-style cappuccino and latte. The machine works alongside illy's iperEspresso capsule system (smooth and rich coffee). The innovative unit offers push-button temperature, flavor strength, and froth controls. Its dual heating system eliminates the wait between milk and espresso, so delicious drinks are ready lightning fast. Clean the frothing wand is simple with the 'burst of steam' feature that automatically cleans the wand after each use. Any cup or mug size is accommodated, even demitasse cups. What a great way to start, or end, your day.

Cuisinart Oven Central… Now you can easily bake, roast, steam, sauté, skewer, griddle, toast and brown directly all in the same unit. The Oven Central is equipped with an adjustable temperature control, a 30-minute countdown timer and a top heater control switch. The non-stick baking pan, cupcake/muffin pan, roasting/steaming rack and four individual skewers are included as well. Roast meat, toast bread, sauté veggies and make waffles or pancakes, in one place!

PowerEdge 1000 Watt Blender…This is one terrific blender. Since we’re in to protein drinks and smoothies, we’ll start off with that. Rather than making a few batches because of the small jar sizes you normally get with blenders, this 64-oz. (BPA free) blender jar held enough for five beautifully-blended smoothies at once. Milkshakes, margaritas and many other drinks will all have the same results. Constructed with a heavy die-cast metal base and lightweight blender jar from Eastman, the PowerEdge blender is ideal for today’s gourmet kitchen, combining high style and high tech. It’s perfectly simple, with only a few buttons (all you need) that make complete sense…high, low, smoothie, ice crush and pulse buttons, as well as a built-in digital counter for timing. Quiet as a mouse, this blender is flawless and a must have for every kitchen.

Rechargeable Salt & Pepper Mill…This is one product we would never have considered as a necessity, but once you give it a try you can never go back to salt and pepper shakers again. This elegant mill offers a magnificent way to serve freshly ground peppercorns and salt. Whether it’s a casual or formal meal, it will fit right in to the occasion. The transparent, (quick) rechargeable brushed stainless steel mill is always ready to go, waiting in its sleek power base with a full charge. Its LED light illuminates food as it’s being seasoned, ensuring just the right amount of spice. Even during your cooking process, it will offer much-needed help as you can use one hand to push the button and spice up your meals, wasting no time. We love their adjustable switch for generating fine to coarse grinds, and you’ll get the perfect results every time! It's perfect!

Espresso Maker EM-100…You love espresso, cappuccino and lattes but they can be a pain to prepare. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a cup any time of the day or night without the hassles? With Cuisinart’s Espresso Maker, the possibility has turned into a reality. Fresh, flavorful, and steaming delights are at your fingertips. The stainless steel Espresso Maker offers professional-tasting treats from your own kitchen. And don’t forget the icing, in the way of fresh steamed frothing! The Espresso Maker will guarantee perfect results every time. The only thing you need to do is grab your mug and enjoy a moment all to yourself. Or share it with a special friend, or two.

Cordless Rechargeable Multi Grater…Cheese lovers beware. You will eat more cheese than ever before with this awesome grater. Grate, shred or slice all your favorites with a simple touch of a button. The Cuisinart Multi-Grater has all your kitchen needs covered, from grating Parmesan to peppercorns, shredding chocolate or softer cheeses and slicing vegetables, proving it’s a lot more than your everyday cheese grater. Fresh, delicious grated cheese every time.

3-in-1 Cook Central…Slow cook, steam and saute with one product that simplifies combination cooking, letting home cooks bypass the stovetop. You can brown ingredients right in the unit before switching to Slow Cook. The preset function buttons and time and temperature controls offer easy-to-use Brown/Sauté, Slow Cook and Steam options. A 24-hour timer and automatic Keep Warm setting promise a fresh-cooked meal, warm and ready whenever you are sitting down to dinner.
