it came free with a juicer. I only wanted the bread-maker and it works fine. easy clean up and the smell of fresh bread is comforting. I do not know if the juicer works, still in box after 3yrs, but it does have a good consumer reputation. the deal for both was about the same if I just bought a bread-maker retail. now that I thought about it maybe I will dig out the juicer.
there is a class action lawsuit regarding the ionic-breeze from sharper image. inflated claims. we tried it and sent it back, did not work as far as we could see.
replaced with the oreck and have been satisfied. at least air moves and the amount of pet fur on the filter is disturbing but there is less in the air. seems to do a good job on dust, cooking odors are not reduced much. got a free plug-in battery cordless 'broom' with the oreck and that is good tool, but you have to work fast, runs about an hour after charging, then we let it recharge overnight.
the one I have thought was interesting is the automatic lights for drawers, under cabinets, etc. one might work nicely to illuminate my keyboard on the pull-out computer desk shelf. I was schooled on manual typewriters, so my touch system is rusty on keyboards. still have my '61 royal portable that was given as a grammar school graduation gift. it still works fine, and I use it occasionally for the nostalgic font smudge, keystroke noise, carriage return and the bell. then I put a dime in the rotary pay phone.........
so my info-com score: 2 for 3. some are fun to watch for their comedic value.
