I bought this as a bridal shower present so that 20 years from now when she is rummaging through a kitchen drawer looking for one of these she can think of me and smile. These are the practical kinds of things we all use that it doesn't hurt to have multiples of. I was pleased with the quality and appearance, and believe that she really will still be using these far into the future.

This pie pan puts an end to the soggy bottom pie crust, and I found the crust stays crispier even after a day or two. Make sure to repair any cracks in the the crust before it bakes, and a crumb crust will work but tends to be a little messy when cutting the pie. Still superior to a crumb crust in my regular glass pie pans.
Another plus is that it is extremely easy to clean!

Progressive Pastry Blender with Cleaning Tab : This pastry blender is better by design, with an attached sliding tab to quickly release pastry dough back into mixture and retain precise measures for ideal dough consistency. Cleaning tab prevents buildup on tines and cleans at the same time, then secures firmly to either end of blade tines. Six, durable stainless-steel tines with flat sides cut butter into pastry dough, easily lifting and blending to produce flakier crusts. Extra height from tines to handle keeps hands clean. Also ideal to mash potatoes, avocados, boiled eggs or bananas. Ergonomic handle. Dishwasher-safe.

I had a pastry blender of this design that finally wore out after 30+ years. I have purchased several different ones that used wire instead of the flat blades and they just weren't nearly as effective.
I love this one! It works as well as my old one did and the handle is very comfortable to use.

This pan is fabulous for oven fries- I tossed my cut potatoes with 2 tsp of oil sprinkled with seasoning and baked- no turning in the middle and they were great. I like it so much I will likely purchase more as gifts.
I read reviews that mentioned dripping oil and hard to clean and had none of that- I sprayed the pan off wiped it dry and it was ready to go. My guess is they are using too much oil which is something to avoid at any rate.
The only con might be capacity. It won't hold enough for a large family-two potatoes works well.
