Kitchen Essentials: Romance Through Cooking

Nothing interrupts a cook's mojo like not having the necessary kitchen instruments when cooking a meal, so we stay stock up, buy one of everything, and be fully prepared. After all, what's worse than not being ready when the time is ripe to froth some milk?

I think Lodge should have painted our ! logo green. Would have looked great with all the other colors in this event. Except those coffee makers. Who let them in here?

I can't believe the L&L are already sold out! I missed it within 15 min. Ugh

The Lodge dutch oven is cheaper at amazon: http://home.woot.com/offers/lodge-8qt-camp-oven-1

Also, I can't imagine taking that camping considering it weighs 22 lbs, but my version of camping tends to involve hiking...

Don't worry the L & L are not sold out...wait till the day after the next Woot Off and buy them for another 25% off over the Woot Off price...even though they said it was sold out!

Makes no sense to me...

So far that's $7 extra dollars (in only 24 hours) you tricked me out of during Woot Off..Woot...Good Job! You have learned well from your Corporate Amazon masters!


Next time I know better!

Fool me once....Woot Off's are no indication that it is a sale price...Just a gimmick to get more out of your wallet.

What happened to honesty in advertising?

From now on I wait till the "After Woot Off" sale!

Anyone have experience with:

Krups GVX1 14 Burr Grinder?

My neighbor needs one desperately!!! I got him into freshly ground beans & I have generously given my time (and grinder time) for his beans but he really wants his own but is on a family budget!

I have owned Krups in the distant past but wonder about their build these days.

Thanks

Check out the reviews on Amazon. Out of 429, 150 of them are only one star, 82 are two.

Read some of those... most dont know anything about coffee grinding - giving one or two stars for it being too noisy (if your grinder is silent ya got a REAL problem) or that the grind coming out has some static on the container (even with anti-static claim) - these all have some static *especially during winter... all you do is give it a few taps against the sides before taking the container out and no mess!

Was hoping to hear from recent purchasers. Most 5 star users say they have had theirs for many years and have had no issues... problem is Krups may have changed some things so - anyone just buy this thing?

Sorry for the problems with the Pyrex. Shipping issues happen periodically with glass items. I've emailed customer service from this end so they can assist you. Also, be sure to check your spam folder for a response. We end up there quite a bit.

Has not been my experience. I got broken glass and Woot! really went the extra step to get me happy.

Got this set last time, and NO rattling!

Sams Club is selling practically the identical one except instead of two, 7 cups there are a couple more 4 & 3 cups I think. Plus it's 20 pieces instead of 18, all for 5 dollars less at 14.91 even with shipping it comes out as 5 bucks cheaper. I feel stupid cause I found it after I bought one from woot...

you just blew my mind

I was at sams club yesterday and saw the set you are talking about but for WHATEVER reason didn't look twice at them and bought the pyrex set on here today (it was the shipping, I had already bought something else and though heck why not these!) however I'm going to get rid of all my plastic stuff and go glass... so I'll be buying the sams club set as well

THANK YOU!

Nevermind!

I lent him my ancient grandmothers handgrinder (kinda looks like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Aztec-A22-Rosewood-Manual-Grinder/dp/B00110GJ8K/ref=pd_sim_sbs_k_4 ) ... It is crazy adjustable and makes a perfect/very consistent grind. If he likes this hand grinder then will suggest he gets his own wooden box type or Japanese glass bottle type.

They do take some work but lasts decades and what else ya gonna do while watching tv?

Get a 7 quart Lodge Dutch Oven, not the camping version, but the home version. It will come with the exact same lid. If you get the 5 quart one, that lid fits the 10.25 inch skillet.

Don't ask how I know. After all, I have 2, "!" 12 inch skillets, and 2 more, without the Woot! logo. (I think one of my Woot! skillets has an "i" on it.) :D

Got one for Christmas - seems good so far, but my first experience with fresh ground coffee. Grind seems consistent, adjuster doesn't unwind itself, no complaints so far

Had some issues with beans not feeding well to start with, until I realised I'd left the brush in the hopper when I packed it to bring it home! It's been fine since, although the feed could definitely be steeper.

Plastic receiver does get a bit staticy, but it's not terrible - would consider anyone complaining about it to be a whiner at this price!

wait - I did a quality post? When?!?

Thanks for that paulw, neighbor decided to go with the hand crank already... but will look out for this in the future!

Just tap the container with a spoon or something and the staticy grinds should drop down.

Glad you are happy with the grinder ***and thanks for the review. Maybe the other wooter will see this and grab one before it leaves Woot tomorrow.
