A waste of money and waste of herbs

I am so disappointed in this herb mill. I was tired of chopping up fresh basil and fresh oregano, so I thought I would give this a try. I ordered the stainless steel one for the better quality. Or so I thought. It makes mush out of the basil (which was patted completely dry), and the gooey mess just sticks to the bottom of the mill. The fresh oregano didn't fair much better. Maybe this mill was meant for dry herbs, but the description leads you to believe it is for fresh herbs. To clean the mill is a chore, and putting it back together is even more difficult. It is definitely not worth the money I paid, and if I could return it I would, but I discarded the box in which it came.

Not like Grandma's kettle!

This kettle is so state-of-the-art that it puts grandma's old kettle to shame. (Not that the old one didn't service it's purpose, mind you.) This kettle is well made and solid. It heats up water to boiling in no time on my induction stove which is exactly what I needed. It's hard to find induction ready cookware that works well, but this one is perfect!

I can finally pour pancake batter without having it spill everywhere except on the griddle. It's great for pouring gravy and other liquids as well. I only wish the numbering was in black because it is really difficult to see measurements.
