I've been finding that when I spend a little more for appliances like CuisineArt Coffee maker, hand mixer, Corelle dinner ware, nice silverware, not only do I get compliments, but I also find they function better. For instance my hand mixer I had died a few weeks ago and I had to replace it, so I spent an extra 20 to get the cuisineart one. It starts on the lowest level, one, and as I increase it it takes the transaction smooth and I have clean countertops and hand mixer! ONLY the bowl and beaters need washed!
This weekend my friend seen I had a cuisine art coffee maker and asked if it was worth the money, I said unhesitantly, worth every cent! Why? I'm finding they last longer, perform better, and though I haven't needed to use it, better warranty behind it.
So, all you busy chicks in the kitchen that have ventured to spend a little more in the kitchen accessories, do you find the same is true?
