A long time ago I bought a set of Wusthof classic knives and have added to my collection over the years, but the edges have grown dull. Though Wusthof offered professional sharpening at times, taking advantage of the offers would have meant sending my knives away, something impossible for anyone who actually uses them daily. I have read many reviews of the Chef's Choice electric sharpener, most of them very good, and now I add my accolades for this product. My knives are even sharper than when new--good knives that I can keep sharp with the Chef's Choice Pro sharpener.

The cutting edge makes this utensil go beyond the usual server, and it also works well on lasagna. With this, you don't need a knife in addition to a wedge-shaped server.

With this gadget you will no longer have to run jars under hot water or bang lids on the floor to open products. The large and small openers work well without having to call in a mythological hero.
Not only do I recommend this to others, but I am buying more for my daughter and an elderly retired couple.

These canisters, cherry red with gradations of shading, look quite cheerful on my gold-flecked black granite counter tops--a nice touch in a room where much work is done. Furthermore, the lined-rim lids close tightly to keep ingredients fresh and free from any little crawly things that might try to invade.

Really works

I had read somewhere that the Barkeepers Friend cooktop cleaner was effective, but I could not find it in my favorite local grocery store--just the powder cleaner, which is great on pots and pans but is too gritty when I try to remove the cleanser from my ceramic cooktop. So I ordered two bottles from Chef's Catalog. The cleaner got up residue I didn't even realize was there (left from inadequate other cleaners), and then the cleanser residue was easy to sponge away.
