Sorry, didn't find it particularly amusing. Characterisation unfortunate. Deadpan humor is good provided it is funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, excellent service., November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased eleven months ago we have used this product regularly without a problem until recently.

First the product: lightweight, easy to assemble/disassemble. Will accomodate two regular sizes loaf tins,plenty of room for rolls but take note of the dimensions if you wish to proof longer loaves. Warms up quickly, efficient maintaining of temperature with no need to cover dough due to small tray (supplied) containing water placed under the rack. We don't use for yogurt but regularly dry out silicone gel packs with great success.
Second the problem: recently tuned proofer on and nothing happened. Changed power cord and outlet, even swore at it, but to no avail. Called suppliers and received the kind of service you usually only hope for. No excuses, just apologies "this shouldn't have happened". Replacement base unit and pre-paid shipping label dispatched immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well what's the problem?, December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have five of these and four of the small ones, and have ordered more. Yep we are sold. Having used them for some weeks now we have only had one sealing problem, and that was operator error. We sealed espresso ground coffee (finely ground) and the lid came off after 24 hrs. Our fault we failed to check the seal which we discovered had been contaminated with a small amount of ground coffee, a simple wipe put this right. We were fed up with buying top quality soft fruit and vegetables and having to throw out spoiled goods after a few days (yes we do have a very good refrigerator set at the recommended temperature). These babies solved that problem, strawberries and raspberries lasted more than seven days, bell peppers ten days and counting etc. Haven't tried for marination so no comment. Oh by the way have converted one into a cheese box, just remove a portion when required bring to room temperature and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kitchen cart, April 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First the good news, excellent appearance. Second, build quality is variable, constructed of both veneer covered wood and solid wood where it matters. Finish could be better, more sanding, and one veneer area cracking slightly due to lack of lubrication. Linking shelves to main carcass unnecessarily fiddly. If you sand down, lubricate heavily with mineral oil and then coat with a beeswax/orange oil then problem solved. We attached a towel rail holder to the back of the cart. But the look!("never mind the quality feel the width"). We've had it a few months now and recommend it,.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knifeblock, April 4, 2012
Well, despite previous reviews on quality we needed a substantial knife block and took a chance. Maybe we were lucky but the block we received was of a very good standard. Solid wood, well finished with good rounded edges. Our concerns were depth of blade and capacity for an oval sharpening steel, the ones with diamond and honing sides, not a problem to either, we also managed a set of poultry shears and santoku knives and cleaver. To be fair the cleaver slot would not suit a full size cleaver. All in all well pleased and highly recommended.
