  1. Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

    Pass? That price would have had me sprinting away in terror.
  2. Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

    Don't know if this is of any interest but the kindle version of Alex Guarnaschelli's The Home Cook has been marked down to $2.99 for however long. The Home Cook: Recipes to Know by Heart And add me to those whose ebook cook book collection is so large it would run me out of my apartment if I had the physical books. I still love a real cookbook, but I can't resist the chance to read and sample a wide variety of cook books from classics to the latest hot thing with little money and no need for shelf space.

  4. Tovala Smart Oven

    Cooking Light has jumped on the marketing plan for this oven now that they have an investment deal with Tyson foods. Personally, I don't think reading labels on prepared products is that difficult that I need something with internet access setting the controls for me, not to mention that the more electronics there are in an appliance the less likely it is to survive for what I consider an acceptable length of time. http://www.cookinglight.com/syndication/tavola-oven-tyson-foods
  5. Panasonic Steam Oven

    The February issue of Delicious UK has a mini review of the Panasonic Steam Oven. Under drawbacks they say: "It's a bit pricey but you could argue it's not so expensive if it replaces a full size oven. I did find the baking results uneven and the oven is for countertop use only, which is tricky if workspace is limited. It's also hard to see what's going on inside because the oven door is tinted and the lighting inside is poor." Their verdict: "Generally well thought-out bit of kit - ideal for the single householder who is into cooking but lacks space."
  6. I'm not sure if discontinued is accurate. That listing is for the CSO-300N, Cuisinart.com has the CSO-300 discontinued, but has the CSO-300N1 on the regular part of the site with no listing of just the N. If the N1 is a newer version, it unfortunately does not appear to have an increased capacity (I admit to sometimes longing for the french door Oster largely because of its size). I do find it interesting that the click through merchants do not include Amazon, although that might not mean anything as they don't hi light a link to Amazon for another oven I know is carried there either. https://www.cuisinart.com/products/toaster_ovens/cso-300n1.html
