I had previously used NSF-certified mineral oil on my Catskill Butcher Block Cutting Board, but was not happy with the results. The John Boos Mystery Oil is a much better product as it is easier to use, does not have a "greasy" feel when applying, and seems to soak into the natural wood better. After one treatment, the natural beauty of the cutting board are looking brand new again.

The Lynk Bamboo Organizer has made my life in the kitchen a little easier. My favorite seasonings, sea salt, balsamic vinegar and small containers of olive oils are organized and at my finger tips for easy use. No more rummaging around the pantry for items used daily. Beware that the lower shelf may not accommodate taller items. The shelf is easy to clean and looks great in the kitchen.

The Duralex Glass Storage Bowls are a welcome addition to the kitchen and refrigerator. The bowls are well made, stack within one another for storage and stack on top of one another in the refrigerator. I love the fact that the bowls can go from refrigerator to microwave to table top. The bowls are dishwasher safe and easy to clean.

I ordered the stainless steel ice cream spoons to use for serving ice cream and other desserts. The spoons do a great job with hard or soft ice cream and the unique design and shape of the spoons can get every last drop. However, the spoons are very light, thin and are made for smaller hands (kids). If you have large hands, it may be difficult to use these spoons. Overall though., these spoons do a good job with many types of desserts.

I purchased this items to use on the grill and liked the nonstick qualities of the sauce pan. The size is perfect for cooking a can of beans, warming a sauce or marinade. I like the fact that I can set the sauce pan on the grill grates (lid open), if needed or use the sauce pan over the side burner. The nonstick sauce pan is great for easy cleanup. The capacity of this item is rather small and not for cooking a large amount of beans for instance.

This is the second purchase of the stainless steel oil can to hold another type of oil. The oil can has an excellent capacity, keeps oil fresh, and most importantly does not drip when pouring or measuring. I have tried other oil cans that simply do not meet the high-quality standards of this oil can and constantly drip when pouring. The oil can is also nice looking and compliments the kitchen decor.

Does a Good Job Removing Baked on Grease

I was skeptical at first when purchasing this product after reading some of the reviews. However, this product has exceeded my expectations. My grill is used heavily 9 months out of the year for grilling and smoking (at least 5 times per week). The stainless steel product removed most of the baked on grease from the grill grates, flavorer bars and inside lid. the instructions for heavy buildup suggested to spray the product on, wait 30 minutes and use water to remove the grease. This method worked for me and removed most of the baked on grease and carbon. I have owned the grill for 1 year and this was the first time it was cleaned. The stainless steel cleaner did a very good job.
