I have many other Wusthof knives. I find this one terrific for slicing fruits, vegetables, etc. I just finished making a gigantic pot of chicken soup with lots and lots of fresh vegetables - knife worked like cutting butter! Did a great job on trimming the chicken also. It will become a daily standard in my cutlery!

I was skeptical because other "non-stick" pans needed "priming" and after a while some of the coating started to scratch and peel off. I bought the Thermolon Fry Pan. I have made eggs, sauteed vegetables, seared meat, fried fish, etc. etc. Everything comes out beautiful. I was concerned that some things may not "brown" -- not so. Maybe just a drop or two of oil is all you need and food brown beautifully. My husband also LOVES this pan and actually wants to make breakfasts because of the ease of use and practically no clean up at atll. I will buy other sizes as well. Great for a gift.

Have tried others before this. We love blended smoothies, iced coffes, milk shakes, etc. Usually ended up with liquid spliiling out of the top or lots of ice or food chunks left in jar. NOT WITH THIS. The vortex blending pulls everything in, blends uniformly, smoothly, has an opening in top to add ingredients while blending. Plus a real SPOUT for pouring! We love it! We're back to enjoying our favorite beverages once again with EZ cleanup. It really does everthing it says it is supposed to do! A little more expensive than some others but well worth the price.
