I love the product. This one was a replacement for one that I wore out. So I'm a fan of it. I also want to add that I love doing business with Zappos.

Don't buy it unless you're cutting Jello. It's junk. Cuisinart should be embarrassed. I bought the Cuisinart CEK-40 Electric Knife for cutting our annual turkey. The gears became more and more stripped towards the end of the first turkey. I exchanged it for a new one and it cut out on the second use occasionally working and was completely unusable on our third year for the same reason. A stripped gear! The motor keeps running at a louder pitch but the knife stops moving. There is a plastic gear part on the inside that easily becomes stripped on this unit! Any good reviews were either written when the unit may have had better parts or after the customer's first use! I've blacklisted the Cuisinart brand from our kitchen because of this product. Test your products Cuisinart! My respect for your products has been greatly lowered. As for the rating...anything above a 1 star on overall, comfort, style for a product that stops working so soon is too high.

Have had one for several years, and it's great. I can cut precise and thin slices of meat and do so several times during the holiday season. It's also perfect for a crusty loaf of bread or when prepping a bunch of bread for party snacks. The blades install easily, stay sharp, and are a snap to clean. The shape and weight of the motor unit is comfortable and well balanced. The only negative is that the switch has gotten very stubborn and often it won't turn on. I expected it to last a little longer than it did, so that's why it only rates 4 stars. Due to this problem, I'll need to replace it and will buy another Cuisinart without hesitation.
