On two diiffereent AmericanTV shows I've heard a word that I dont know and have never heard of, because Ive never heard of it I have no idea how to spell it.

I can only tell you how it sounds.

It sounds like" Ekweezinart"

Can you make anything of this?

Could it be a blender or food processor? There is a company named "Cuisinart" that makes those appliances.

Yeah, I'd say it's a food processor.

Saying Cuisanart is like saying "kleenex" for tissues. I think they were the originals around here.

I don't think that's a daft question at all kev.

Niles Crane: "While you were over there mixing metaphors like a Cuisinart, I had a breakthrough."

---

[Frasier tries to comfort Daphne who's unhappy with her love life.]
Frasier: "I know how bleak these times can be, but believe me, they will come to an end sometime or later. I remember a time back in Boston, I was going through exactly what you're going through now. Just a week later I met a lovely barmaid, sophisticated if a bit loquacious. We fell madly in love and we got engaged... 'course, she left me standing at the altar. The point is, I didn't give up. I took my poor battered heart and handed it to Lilith. ...Then in her little Cuisinart, she hit the purée button. I rebounded, and look how far I've got! I'm divorced, lonely, living with my father."

Macy's advertised last week(end) a couple of cuisinart's products nationwide
