have been out of sewing arena for 25 yrs,Great product. versetile. easy to get started. threading was a breeze with the new auto threader. Wish there was a bit more in manual for beginning sewers.
Right out of the box, this machine was easy to use. Threading the machine and bobbin is so super easy. The drop in bobbin is a HUGE plus. The fact that is comes with a "case" -its just a cover you slide over the top, but it works! was also a nice feature. For someone that "knows what they're doing" yet at the same time still has no clue, I am VERY happy with this machine.
I've heard complaints about the light not being bright enough, but I don't find this an issue at all. I tend to keep the overhead lights on when I sew, so... yeah, not a big deal. I've hemmed jeans and made some purses, and hemmed a couple skirts and dress slacks, etc.. and its worked perfect.
Ad far as how loud it is, I think its actually pretty quiet. It does chug when you sew through multiple layers of demin, but what machine wouldn't? I love this machine and am VERY happy this is the one I went with.
Let me tell you....I am brand new to sewing, but after finding the right machine,THIS ONE, I have the confidence of a well-seasoned professional. [...] I then decided to do some research and found this Brother 6000i to have such excellent reviews that I had to give it a try. WOW-I LOVE IT! Target is my favorite place to shop, so I happily ordered it online and received it even before the estimated arrival time. It is so easy to use and is a great value. Mine came with the extended sewing table and hard cover which was a bonus, plus I got 5 percent off and free shipping with my Target card! Overall, this was an excellent purchase and I would recommend this machine to anyone, beginner or advanced sewer.
I am enjoying my pans. I have had to do some research on how to care for them though. Yes, heat them and then add oil is a good idea.
That way it does not get too hot before you put in the food and splatter all over. Make sure to add the oil slowly. Cooking spray does not work the best. It tends to leave brown spots. They come off with a product
recommended by Kitchenaid. I accidently got the pan too hot and the bottom turned coppery colored. I tried vinegar, baking soda, and dish soap. It would not come off. I went and got this product and it saved my pan. Vinegar works well to polish. Absolutely no dishwasher for
these pans. I repeat no dishwasher!! Also Medium heat is high enough
to boil water in these pans. I did wash them once in the dishwasher and they turned bluish. Vinegar polished them back up, but I will be hand washing from now on. I have been cooking for twenty years and otherwise am happy with my pans.
I grew up on stainless, but for the past decades I've been using non-stick pans. Now with the evidence about non-stick, I asked for new pans for Christmas. I did a lot of research on stainless steel pans and how to treat them.
I learned new things in my research.
1- No dishwasher
2- Hot Pan - Cold Oil
Just say no to the dishwasher.
I used to put the oil into the pan and then heat them up. According to my research that is exactly wrong. Stainless will act non-stick if you heat the pan THEN put in the oil/butter.
Foods do have a tendency to stain cookware. [...] is a dry cleaning powder that helps clean the pans to the just-like-new state.
I find these pans wonderful and a good buy. Make sure you understand the difference between stainless and non-stick, and how to take care of them, and they will last longer than any non-stick pans you get.

Love this cookware !!! Fabulous!!! Best Cookware!!!
Love, Love, Love this cookware!!! This is a great stainless steel cookware set. I was so tired of the peeling teflon, non-stick pans, so upgraded to stainless. This set is great! I cook everyday, usually three times a day, my cookware must be durable and easy to use. I love every piece. From eggs, soups, stir fry, rice, beans, chicken and rice, gravy steak, fudge, peanut brittle, you name it and I cook it - I cook everything you can imagine and everything turns out perfectly. These pans cook everything like an expensive pro set. I especially love the easy clean up. These pans look beautiful, even after every day use. We have an old gas propane stove which is hard to cook anything on low, but that is no problem with these pots and pans. Thank you KitchenAid and thank you Target for such a great price on this set of wonderful cookware!!!
I absolutely recommend this product. Its so nice to not have to buy soda at the store, it last weeks in the frigde, and no bottles to return. I just mix with a little juice or lime and make my own soda. Easy exchange of cartridge at many stores.
I purchased this set of cookware recently and have used it for various meals. I think it does really well on gas or electric stove tops and evenly distributes the heat. My older skillet is a bit thicker iron but these seem to do pretty well. I have been very happy with them and their cleanability. Nothing sticks to them and the color is nice.
In my house of four, we are all coffee drinkers. Some more, some less, either way our machine is busy. We have had it at least two and a half years and it is still running like new. We have never hit any technical problems or drink mishaps in our ownership of it without any maintenance to it other than making sure everything is clean.
To any coffee drinker, this machine is perfect. However, I prefer to use my water cooler's hot water for tea and do not like it for hot cocoa. Other than that, I have absolutely NO complaints over this product.
It has lasted us well through the years, great results consistently, and so convenient. I am even gifting this to my boyfriend who is a constant user of our machine and he is so excited to have one of his own.
For its price, I believe it is fair enough. Even with my high school, part-time job, I can afford to gift this. So I suggest to anyone who is looking for a great coffee maker to buy one, even if it is a single cup machine. Though if you are spending this money, why not get this better model?
I bought this coffee maker about 4 or 5 years ago and have used it about twice a day since then. It has never stopped working or leaked or anything. It is very fast and very easy to clean. all you have to do is fill it with water and put a coffee pod in. It's that simple. I tell everyone I know to get one of these, I swear off of it!
I LOVE THIS MACHINE. I WONT JUST SAY COFFEE MAKER BECAUSE IT MAKES MORE THAN COFFEE
AND IM NOT A HUGE COFFEE DRINKER SO REALLY I WANTED IT FOR THE OTHER BEVERAGES IT MADE. THE COFFEE IS A BONUS BECAUSE I'VE COME TO ENJOY A SMALL CUP OF COFFEE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE A LARGE CUP. AND IT IS QUIET AND QUICKLY BREWS ALL BEVERAGES. I LOVE IT AND LOOK FORWARD TO WAKING UP TO A CUP FROM THE KEURIG, OR BEFORE BED HAVE A WARM UP OF TEA.
I love this machine! I had the basic Keurig and this is soo much better. The water stays heated so you get your cup quicker. I just wish you could use the Kcups as well. Right now there is more variety with the Kcups. But I wouldn't trade it in!!
I had the Cuisinart Keurig machine that is almost the equivalent of this, but this has some subtle differences that make it even better. You can make bigger, better and stronger coffee with this machine where many of the others limit you to between 6-8 oz. Yes, some machines allow you to add more water, but the coffee will come out diluted and not so great. With the Vue, it will come out perfect! Also, my kids liked this one better. They loved the touch controls and the fact that it froths specialty drinks like Cappuccino. It is an awesome machine. Highly recommended.
This set of cookware is nothing short of remarkable. The weight of each piece is substantial, yet not too heavy. The brilliant stackable design really does free up my much needed cabinet space- although the lids do not stack together. I've used mine for everything from stir fried tofu and veggies, to boiling kamut pasta. They heat evenly, and are gorgeous to the eye, as well. Now, for anyone who gripes about hard water buildup, salt, or minerals that remain in the cleaned cookware, have you ever heard of a stainless steel cleaning scrub, like cameo? A little cameo will remove anything that remains in the pots and pans, leaving them looking like new. Just follow the directions, and don't use it on the mirrored exteriors, or glass lids. Only a total novice would complain about hard water stains on stainless cookware.
I've purchased 2 sets of this (Eazistore) cookware for gifts. Both couples LOVE them! They are well made, very nice quality cookware. They are designed to nest very compactly, which means they require less storage space. Very pleased with this cookware set!
I washed these about 20 times, but no matter how many times i washed them, there was always a grey residue left. i dried them with white paper towels and it happened on every single one of them! it would just not go away.[...]
This Raclette is a great way for my family to spend time together at the table. Everyone enjoys choosing and cooking their own food in their own little pan. The possibilities are endless! Grew up with this in Europe and so happy to see them here in the States.
