Blend With the In Crowd

It comes in seven different gorgeous colors. It comes with a free ice cream scoop accessory. It’s nearly forty dollars off the original price, and comes with a $20.00 rebate offer. It’s sturdy and handsome and efficient and will look terrific in your kitchen.

KitchenAid Ultra Power 5 Speed Blender w/Ice Cream Scoop

It’s the KitchenAid Ultra Power 5 Speed Blender. With this baby, you can mix smoothies, milkshakes, cream soups, crushed ice, and more to your heart’s content. The sturdy KitchenAid construction means it will last for years, and the classic design means it will look just as good twenty years from now as it does today.

Of course, all this power and elegance doesn’t (usually) come cheap. The retail price on this blender is $137.00, which certainly isn’t at all bad for what you’re getting. But why stop at not bad when you can get an actively good deal? If you head over to QVC right now, you can find this superfantastic kitchen appliance on sale for just $99.96. That’s much better. In fact, that’s more than $37.00 better.
Better yet, there’s a rebate offer from KitchenAid. Buy this blender now and you can get a $20.00 cash rebate, too!

So, to sum up: powerful, long-lasting, good-looking blender; nearly $40.00 off the retail price; further $20.00 cash rebate; free ice cream scoop.

This is the sort of deal I love.

Saucy Savings, Free Shipping

As many of you know, I love good cookware. So when I see an excellent piece of versatile cookware at a deep discount and then find the shipping is free…you know I’m going to share the good news.

Calphalon 5Qt Saucier With Steamer

This 5 quart, non-stick saucier pan from Calphalon comes with a handy steamer basket as well. It’s the perfect thing for making sticky treats like sushi rice and thick puddings, but it’s also great for doing a one-dish treatment of braised meat and steamed vegetables or a thick, comforting winter stew. The size and shape will make this a favorite for feeding a hungry family, and the non-stick surface makes clean up easy as pie.

Normally you’d expect to pay $235.00 for this sturdy yet handsome piece of cookware. Luckily, Cooking.com isn’t carrying it for the normal price. They’ve slashed the price tag down to just $99.99! That’s a savings of over $135.00!

But it gets better. Now through August 13, use code C97298 to get free shipping on selected orders of $99.00 or more. See site for details, but this pan does qualify.
If you want to get the savings, you’d better get cooking!

Handy Deal On KitchenAid

Serious cooks agree: KitchenAid stand mixers are exceptional. Not only are they handsome sitting on the countertop, they’re also sturdy and efficient at what they do. More than that, they’ve been known to last longer than even stunningly prolific home bakers. It’s a difficult combination to beat.

But what to do if you haven’t got the counterspace or the cash? What if you only use a mixer once in a very blue moon and were raised with a hand-held? Does that mean you’re forever barred from the wonders of KitchenAid?

No, it most emphatically does not mean any such thing! Why? Because KitchenAid now brings their understanding of mixing technology and strong sense of beautiful design to a hand-held model at a fraction of the price of their famous stand mixers.

KitchenAid Hand Mixer The cheerful pastel and retro look of these mixers will make them fun to look at, while the legendary KitchenAid construction guarantees that you’ll be able to mix whatever you need for years.

Lightweight for easy handling, this mixer features nine different speeds, including the ‘start slow’ feature, which is handy for making sure your flour stays in the bowl and not on your floor! Comes standard with both beater and whisk attachments. The beaters and whisks are dishwasher safe, while the hand unit is best wiped clean. Just choose whether you want orange, yellow, or green and get to work making cupcakes, cookies, and whipped cream to your heart’s content.

Oh, and did I mention it’s on sale? Head on over to Sur La Table and get this baby at a bargain. The regular price is $89.95, but right now you can get it for just $69.99 while limited supplies last!

Sweet, Life-Giving Caffiene

Somehow a late night shaking my generous booty at a concert followed by a distinct lack of sleep (Get your minds out of the gutter, people! My cat kept trying to push me off the bed) has left me with coffee on my mind. As I huddle over a large mug of the Nectar of Life, I think how good coffee makes existance moderately bearable, except when it makes it sweet and meaningful.

If you don’t have one, now might be a good time to toddle over to Amazon.com and take a look at this cheerful and generous French press.

Candy Apple Red French Press Simple to use, pretty to look at, and a great way to impress your coffee-loving friends, this French press will deliver up to eight cups of the good stuff in no time at all.

And it’s on sale. Regularly priced at a quite reasonable $49.95, the price has been slashed to just $38.58. As if that weren’t enough, it also qualifies for free shipping under the Super Saver Shipping deal. On top of all that, it qualifies for the 4 for 3 program, as well. Buy four qualifying items and get the lowest priced on free. See site for details. Spend the money you saved on a store of top-notch beans. Call me. I’ll bring pie…just as soon as I wake up.

Happy Fourth…and Happy Cooking

Greetings all, and a hearty cheer of Happy Fourth of July to all those who celebrate it…and even to those who don’t. After all, it’s still a day and should still be happy if at all possible.

One thing that’s making me happy today is this wonderful Emile Henry Fait Tout on sale at Williams-Sonoma.

Emile Henry Fait Tout In French (and hey, they were America’s allies during the Revolution, so it does tie in), fait tout means quite literally ‘does everything’ and that’s what this charming and practical dish can do for you. Whether you’re baking a casserole, vegetables, or meat, it will get the job done nicely. It can also go from oven to freezer to microwave to tabletop to dishwasher with aplomb. And with a capacity of 4.2 quarts, it will easily feed a family from one dish.
Not wild about the blue color? It also comes in red and yellow (sorry, no white even today). But it is on sale. Normally priced at $128.00, it’s available now from Williams-Sonoma for a mere $49.99! That’s $78.01 off! That makes this Yankee Doodle feel mighty dandy.

Loony for Mezzaluna

A mezzaluna is a terribly handy device. It’s a half-moon-shaped knife designed for easy mincing of herbs, onions, and garlic. Traditionally, it’s used on a slightly bowl-shaped board to accomodate the shape of the knife and keep the items being chopped in order. And here’s what it looks like, for those of you who’ve never seen one:

Neem Wood Mezzaluna This lovely neem wood mezzaluna set comes with not only the mezzaluna (what? it’s a fun word to type) and neem wood cutting board with bowl-shaped indentation, but with three stainless steel cheese knives as well. The three knives and the mezzaluna all store neatly in the drawer underneath the cutting board. And the case can be flipped for use as a flat cutting surface as well. As for the wood, neem is a tropical evergreen from Southeast Asia that’s more durable than teak. And just look at that gorgeous grain!

Normally the set you see here would cost $79.95 from Cooking.com, but it’s on sale now for just $59.99! Think of it: four blades and two cutting surfaces all in a compact yet decorative storage case, all for just about the price of a nice dinner out. Plus you get the fun of saying mezzaluna. It’s even more fun to say than it is to type.

Childs’ Play

I don’t usually do much for children here at the Basement. It’s not that I don’t think children deserve superfantastic things, but more a case of not going too far out of my way to find such goodies. After all, Teeny Manolo does an amazing job of finding great goodies for kids and moms. I usually feel my efforts in that regard would be somewhat superfluous.

But today I found something I just have to pass on because I know how much I would have adored it as a little girl and because it’s such an amazing deal.

Rosanna Children's Bake Set Rosanna’s 9-piece Let’s Play House children’s baking set nearly made me squeal with delight when I spotted it at Amazon.com.

The set includes an oven-safe pie plate and equally oven-safe cupcake pan, a mixing bowl, a cake stand, and four dessert plates in cheerful pastel colors all neatly housed in a dollhouse-shaped box. With a little help from mom, dad, the babysitter, or an older sibling, little bakers can produce their own delicious home-baked treats and serve them to friends and family with pride.

If there’s a small girl with an interest in baking in your life, this would make a fabulous gift for any reason you can imagine…and at the price Amazon.com is charging right now, you can afford to give it just because.

Usually priced at $90.00 (which is not at all bad considering what’s waiting in that box and how many hours of joy it will give), Amazon.com is currently selling it for a mere $27.00! That’s right, $27.00!

At that price, I want one for me.

After all, a girl is never too big to play tea party.

As for me, I want this sleekly classic kitchen clock with attached 60-minute timer. The removable timer incorporates a magnet, so that you can put it where it will be the most useful for you. Stick it on the fridge or stove while you’re cooking and keep a watchful eye on how much longer things have to go. Or just leave it attached to the clock so you never lose track of where to look for a reminder of when the casserole will be done.
