OK, I used one when making the pierogi. It did seem to work the wet ingredients into the dry well, but I did have to hand knead, too, per the recipe. I plan on using it again when I make my Mom's coffee cake. It's a thinner, almost batter-like consistency. I'll report back once I've used the whisk for that.

CG, I think you will find it is not really geared to thinner doughs. It will work but, in my mind, not as efficiently.

With the big loops it grabs thicker dough pulling it into your mass. That is where thinner whisks just get clogged up.

Also a good example for the nice thick strong handle.

I had to replace my microwave. I decided on this one. My last microwave lasted 15 years. Hopefully this one will last as long. It's really nice. More powerful than the old one. The only thing is it plays an annoying musical tone instead of the usual beep when the cycle is complete. I don't think there's a way to turn it off. If anyone has experience with this unit and knows how to turn off the music or change it to a beep please let me know.

Also, on a side note -- The cats are taking turns looking at their reflections in the door. It cooks AND entertains!

I didn’t post the link. Sorry. I got it at Best Buy. I think you can google the model number and get links. I’m not home at the moment or I would add the link.

This is really strange. On my Mac, there is no photo or link. Nothing but text. On my phone I see a photo and brief description.

Thanks GG.

Sorry, msmofet.

When it is warmer, I will be looking to replace my over the stove microwave. Nothing wrong with it but I want the ability to have a range hood that vents outside. Iíve heard of microwaves that can do this. Anyone have a microwave with this feature and can comment on how well it vents?

I've purchased one and am waiting for the installation. Will report once it is in place.

I'd really like to know what you think of this tool after you've had a chance to use it.

It's pretty good. Easier to use and clean than a traditional garlic press.

I received a late Christmas gift yesterday - lighted chopsticks - 6 sets. Who'd-a-thunk?
