Capresso CoffeeTEAM PRO Plus 
12 Cup Coffee Maker

Coffee, wine and chocolate…each has their place in our lives as a food group. Our morning coffee starts our day; and the quality, taste and temperature of our coffee starts our morning on the right track, or not. Some people have dubbed us “coffee snobs”. OY! 

The Capresso CoffeeTEAM PRO Plus coffee maker has a burr grinder built right in. We now can purchase coffee beans, without the need to grind them, fill the bean container, set the timer and wake up to coffee made with freshly ground beans. This is the ultimate treat for coffee lovers like us. We have found that varying the beans truly allows us to savor and discern the taste of different coffees from different regions. Just as we appreciate many types of wine, cheese and chocolate, the burr grinder has added to our appreciation of regional and small batch coffees (much of which we purchased at Costco)

Three fineness settings let us adjust the grinder to our bean types (oily or not) and favorite coffee strength. We found that if you prefer very strong coffee, as we do especially in the morning, we filled the pot with only 8 cups of water (35 to 40 oz.), but set the burr grinder to grind enough coffee for 10 cups. Alternately, if a very mild coffee is preferred, just set the grinder one or two levels below the amount of coffee needed.

The two-step grind and clean process ensures no beans and minimal ground coffee are left in the grinder after use. The new “Oily” bean setting is a huge plus, increasing the versatility of the brewer. We are delighted with this updated coffee maker… particularly with the glass carafe, and the burr grinder mechanism, which is now able to handle oily beans. We pour coffee just the way we want it – fresh, aromatic, strong (or not)! As the saying goes…”Have it your way”, and we do. It makes us smile to wake up to the “burr” of our  Capresso CoffeeTEAM PRO Plus coffee maker– especially when that cup is paired with a warm cinnamon bun or toasted bagel.

The Cuisinart® Power Advantage™ 5-Speed Hand Mixer, mixes even the heaviest and thickest ingredients. From thick cookie dough to whipped cream, to meringues, the powerful motor can perform just about any mixing task. And, that includes every mixing task we tried in our testing.... including our gooey, sticky peanut butter oatmeal cookies,(recipe below)* pie crust and pizza dough and our sour cream banana cake. Yes, we love our Cuisinart stand mixer- it is a workhorse (15 years old), yet sometimes we just need a quick, pull it out of the drawer substitute and this is it. Talk about a fashion forward kitchen accessory. We are tempted to leave it on the counter – just look at the 5 luscious colors! This hand mixer has an extra special feature for the kosher kitchen. Because of the color palette, it is convenient (and yes, tempting!) to buy 2 mixers in different colors, one for dairy and one for meat.

From Harold Import Co.



This is the first non-aerosol spray bottle designed to work specifically with cooking oils, ensuring more precise control over how much oil is used.

Designed by the renowned Michael Graves Design Group, the Evo Oil Sprayer's 18 oz. bottle and comfortable ergonomic trigger makes it easy to use. Its powerful spray head swiftly and evenly coats the surface of pans or foods prior to or after cooking. The bottle is recyclable and eco-friendly. The Evo sprayer was first developed for commercial food service establishments. After being embraced by chefs, it has been sized and packaged for the home cook. It also comes with reusable bottle labeling to easily identify contents, along with a refilling funnel.

The Evo sprayer works with vegetable oil, olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, grapeseed oil, even sesame oil and vinegars. Flavors can be added to the liquids to enhance the taste. We also used it to spray water on our ready to bake challahs.
The Evo Sprayer:

  • Versatility for cooking, baking, sautéing, grilling such as: Spraying chicken or meats with olive oil before cooking; Spritzing vegetables or potato wedges before roasting; dressing a salad; coating pots and pans
  • It uses no propellants or chemicals, so the flavors of your ingredients shine through
  • Precise sprayer makes monitoring calorie and nutritional goals easier
  • Easy to clean- Hand-wash sprayer in warm, soapy water and spray hot water through sprayer; bottle section is top rack dishwasher safe.
  • Measures 9" tall x 5.5" wide.

Evo Oil Sprayer is available from Harold Import Co.,  or order it here: Evo Oil Trigger Spray Bottle for Olive and Cooking Oils, 18-Ounce
