Anyone familiar with Spring Switzerland or Dr. Weil by Spring cookware?

I own the rice cooker and it works well. I just bought the slow cooker yesterday from Bloomingdales. It was 50% off. I was told by the clerk that either the company was not making the products anymore or Bloomingdales was not going to be carrying it anymore (unclear to me exactly what he was saying). I was told that it was because they were not selling well but supposedly that's because they could not get any brand traction, not necessarily because they were bad products. The slow cooker has mixed reviews on Amazon but so does every other slow cooker. I am taking my chances since the price was so good and I am satisfied with the rice cooker. Anyway, see if you can get a good deal or else find another brand. I also read on Amazon that there is zero customer service from Spring/Dr. Weil but Bloomingdales told me I would have a 2 year warranty through them.

Where to buy Thai ingredients in Westchester

I am looking for a market that sells Thai basil, Kaffir Lime leaves, Lemongrass, Thai chili, Thai eggplant, and other Thai food products in Westchester. I have tried the market in the basement of the DMV building in White Plains. It has a few things. Anyone know of another place? I have decided that I need to learn to make Thai food since I am not thrilled with the Thai restaurants close to my home. Thanks.
