Paula Deen's cookware is really nice. I like the white non-stick but this set has all three pot sizes that I need to cook with. I got the oatmeal color which is very pretty and so far has been very durable.
I was so thrilled to receive this in the mail! I had searched forever for a waffle iron with removable plates (I want to be able to wash those suckers). I read the reviews by people who love this thing, so I figured it must be nice. I opened the box and pulled out the cheapest looking appliance I've ever owned (and that includes my $10 toaster!) I was wanting waffles so bad this weekend........guess I'll be visiting Waffle House! I'm returning this thing tomorrow!
I purchased this to save time pre-heating my oven. Some convenience food items say to cook in the oven for 7-11 minutes and using the oven for these items seems like a waste (we have a gas stove). Plus, in the summer, I hate when it's hot outside and then have to use the oven. I have used the Pizzazz for frozen pizza's, cheese sticks, and pizza rolls so far. I have no complaints. It's easy and convenient to use. I have yet to try a homemade pizza or things like cookies. I've only came across a minor problem: when I run my microwave and the Pizzazz at the same time it tripped the breaker switch. No big deal....just use one those appliances at a time.
It is a very sturdy pit that stays very hot once you get it fired up. Be sure to test it first, to get used to the heat for smoking or BBQing.\nThe grates are of high quality and heavy.\nInstructions and parts are labeled, and even include extra nuts, bolts and flanges, just in case.\nWe LOVE our pit!\nThe only thing we were not pleased with is that the paint has begun to peel off of the fire box.\nWe just got it last week, and have already used it twice.
I used this smoker for the 1st time this week. I followed a lot of the recommendations read here - I used a .99\u00A2 bread pan since the smoker box was too small. Fit perfectly in it's place. I bought hickory chunks and using a flat head screw driver and a hammer I broke them down into chips. Get much more for your money that way. I added a rope gasket around the door to seal it (Lowe's). When I fired up the smoker (on low) I put a layer of dry chips on the bottom while I soaked a bunch more in water. It's important not to put the burner on high or you will get fire instead of smoke. Once the smoke rolled for about 30 mins and i had a base of coals I added wet chips and dialed in the temp.\n\nLike the others, I lined the water pan with foil and extended the foil out to catch any drippings. I was able to hold 227 for most of the time. Here's a trick to get <200-230. Adjust the valve on you propane until it's almost completely off and watch the burner. You won't get there with the dampers alone. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy. I also used an oven temp probe to measure the temp. The one on my smoker wasn't too far off actually, but I like the precision of digital.\n\nI had to add chips every 90 mins, but the results were amazing. I did a rack of ribs and a 5lb pork loin. Dry rubbed ribs on the smoke for 2 hours, then wrapped in foil with 1\/4 cup of apple juice for 2 hours, then the last hour on the smoker. They were amazing. Pork loin was on for 3 1\/2 hours. All at about 227 degrees. Enjoy!
Could not be happier with my Smokey Mountain Smoker. Excellent value for the dollar. Easy enough to assemble. Did have one part break when I was putting it together, but Landmann was quick to send me another. Cannot believe how good things taste right out of the smoker and you must try a smoked meat loaf. You will never cook one in a regular oven again. In one week I have cooked chicken breast, pork loin, Boston Butt, and meat loaf in the smoker and ALL were EXCELLENT.
Great grill. Family had exact one years ago and we used it till no end. Great American made grill with quality parts. Easy to use and no hassle charcoal grilling. Only thing to be less desireable is the Walmart site to store. Took way longer to get in my local store and they didn't even call when it arrived. I just happened to be in the store and see It on the retail shelf.
Finally found a grill that I love. I don't like charcoal grills and Can't have a gas grill on my deck so I searched on-line and came across this. Read alot of the reviews like I always do. My 17 year old son put this together for me in record time and when the weather cleared and warmed up we cooked Burgers on it. I had read that someone said that the grill didn't get hot enough for grill marks we didn't have any problems getting them. We cooked on a high setting and they tasted just like they were cooked on a gas grill. Juicy and yummy! So if you want a great Electric grill this one is for you!
Except for the unfathomable wait at the will call counter in the back of the Walmart on Zero Street I consider the product and the price great. Had to go to the customer service counter in the front where a woman named Joy brought me joy by taking matters into her own hands, walking all the way to the back and procuring my purchase. An employee any one would be lucky to have working for them. She does the right thing on her own and takes care of business in an exemplary manner.
After a dozen or so uses the prong on the heating element apparently melted and bent so that it won't fit the plug. I am looking for a way to buy a replacement heating element since it is out of warranty after eight months. Couldn't recommend for this reason, but otherwise OK.
The product itself was what I expected. We have not used it as it was a gift for my husband for Christmas. Got lost at site to store shipping so it was really late. When they finally found it (after Christmas), the prices dropped dramatically. It was half of the sale price.
The bbq utensils were great and slightly better than expected. On the other hand, the case had whitish wore look to it. It looked like it had been sitting outside or something. It didn't matter to me, because it was just
Since this item said it shipped on 3\/26\/13 and supposedly ya'll haven't received\nthis item I don't know what to think. I'll wait a few days and call customer service\nlike they recommend.\n\nJudy Brown
