I love this hand held blender. It has a long handle for deep pots and can handle large quantity liquids. The nice surprise was that it came with its' own carrying case for all the tools.

I've been struggling to sharpen my knives with a wetstone for years. I finally broke down to buy this Wusthof Electric Sharpener. WOW! my knives are razor sharp! I have to be careful on washing the knives because I could get cut very easily if I'm not careful. I would highly recommend this sharpener! If I could do things over again, I would have gotten this sooner.

The best non-stick cookware I have ever purchased!

This cookware is well worth the money. Not only is it PTFE- and PFOA- free, but it is the best non-stick cookware ever! You don't have to use a lot of grease or oil for your cooking and your food just slides out of the pan. Cooking with this cookware is great because the heat is evenly distributed and there are no extra hot or cold spots when cooking. This cookware is also sturdy and has a nice heavy weight to the feel. Cleaning the pans are a breeze! Just let the pan cool, then take a paper towel and wipe the food residue out into the trash before washing with soap and hot water. The instructions say not to stack your pans because it might scratch. I would suggest to put a dish towel between the pans and then stack them.

Highest quality product and easy to clean. After the pan has cooled, I wipe it clean with paper towels. I then use "wipe ups" to sanitize the pan. Next I use a wet cloth to rinse the pan clean, then wipe it dry. I usually do this twice to make sure I get any "wipe up" chemicals out before the final drying and storing away of the pan.

One of the best purchases I've made. Cooking is great because the heat is easily regulated. Cleaning is fantastic! I just wipe the pan clean with paper towels, then sanitize with wipe ups, then rinse with wet paper towels and wipe dry with a dry towel.

Food cooked on a charcoal grill somehow tastes better than that cooked on a gas grill. Also, if you are going to a picnic or tailgate, you need a portable grill. This Lodge Logic Sportsman Grill is the best charcoal grill I have ever used. It's made of sturdy cast-iron material with a large grilling surface area. This grill is well worth your money because, with normal use, this will be the last charcoal grill you will ever buy.
