Cuisinart Easypop Popcorn Maker

cuisinart-easypop-popcorn-makerAccording to the manufacturers blurb the Cuisinart EasyPop Popcorn Maker puts the crunch into homemade popcorn!

So that you have nice crips popcorn every time the popcorn maker has vents in the popping bowl so that the moisture escapses.

You can pop enough popcorn to fill up the family as it pops up to 10 cups of popcorn in under 5 minutes, and you choose how much oil and salt to add.

Easy to use and a breeze to clean up, plus it is also dishwasher safe.

However, the majority of the reviews were not quite as enthusiastic about the construction of the product or its performance. Many found the popcorn to be chewy, this may have been the result of not removing the plastic cover that allows the steam to escape.

Others reported defective machines where bits melted or didn’t function properly, so all in all there is a lot of disappointment with this product. Most buyers purchased the easypop popcorn maker because of Cuisinart’s great reputation for producing cookware that is durable, functional and good looks, unfortunately the easypop popcorn maker does not appear to not be up to their usual high standard.

Having said that, those people who did get the popcorn maker to work properly are absolutely delighted with it and give it a big thumbs up. This is one of those items that you will need to read the reviews on and then decide whether or not to take the chance or look for another brand of popcorn maker such as the Wabash Valley Farms Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper

Cuisinart Griddler Review

cuisinart-griddleThis very versatile griddle will have you making delicious steaks, grilled cheese sandwiches and yummy bacon and eggs quickly and easily. Just plug it in and away you go.

The best feature of the Cuisinart griddle is the reversible plates. On one side is a flat plate and on the other the grill. So you can have a full grill if you like or full griddle or half and half. It also has separate temperature controls so you can keep the two plates at different temperatures or keep one completely off if you don’t need to use both plates.

I noticed that most review sites on the net indicate that the griddle parts should be hand washed. However, when reading the instruction booklet that comes with this griddler, it indicates that the plates, drip tray and scraping tool are dishwasher safe. If purchasing you might want to take this into consideration and read the instruction book to ensure that it is in fact dishwasher safe before you pop it in to wash. My preference for anything non-stick is to hand wash as it definitely prolongs the life of the product.

What We Like

  • The plates are reversible so you can grill on one side and griddle on the other
  • The plates are removable and dishwasher safe so clean up is a breeze.
  • The drip tray collects grease and can also be removed. It is dishwasher safe.
  • It comes with a scraping tool which is also dishwasher safe.
  • The griddler won’t work unless everything is locked properly into place – this is a nice safety feature.
  • You can really cook anything on this – at least anything that you would use on a regular stove top.

What We Don’t Like

  • This can take up a bit of room so you will need a bit of counter space.
