Thank you, I get free shipping on everything, since it is with points and not cash, so that is not a concern.
I have only had 3 Cuisinart appliances ever. I had a stick blender, and that lasted a bit more than a year, I had a chopper, that lasted less than that. And I had the soft serve ice cream maker and it lasted 2 years. So, maybe it it just me...that was my experience, hence I wasn't looking at Cuisinart. I could give them another shot, I suppose.
I specially am looking for a waffle iron and a griddle that can make large quantities at time time and are also quality.
So, quality and quantity.
Thank you for helping.
I love this forum!!
