Go Libbeys!! What a great idea to have a glass "bundt" pan. This dish is perfect for so many things....salad molds, fancy meatloaf, cake. I'm sure I will come up with even more new ways to make use of it. I love it. I haven't purchased a new kitchen dish is quite some time, and I am delighted with this:))

I love my new bamboo cutting board. It is attractive enough to leave on the counter so it is always in the ready position. With the rubber stoppers, it does not slide around when using it. The storage space for the cutting surfaces keeps everything you need readily available. I would have given it five stars if only the cutting surfaces were dish washer safe. But that's a little thing.

I LOVE my new peelers, and wonder how I got along without them! They are extremely sharp, which makes peeling veggies easy and the blade takes a very thin slice off the veggies. Having a wide base means they handle well and are easy on the hands. The julienne feature is great. I even like the colors...I can quickly pick them out in my tool drawer. I would definitely recommend these peelers.

The small spatula and turner definitely meet my expectations. They are quality tools and work with a wide range of foods. I have been purging my kitchen of plastic tools because I do not believe they are healthy to use, and these two items are a wonderful addition. The turner works great for turning food in my scanpan grill pan. I like how thin they are, as well as flexible. Love them, and would definitely recommend.

Ok, so I agree that this is a quality tool, made with stainless steel. The functionability is questionable. I thought I would be able to actually determine the size of the cheese slices. No, not so much. I plane, and the slices are raggity and never even. Perhaps I just need more practice, and I will continue to use it, but so far, it's not living up to my expectations. But Chefs, I still love you and continue to be impressed with the wide range of quality products that you offer.

I have considered the purchase of an electric kettle for some time, and after lots of research, this is the one I settled on. The water boils quickly, as promised, and it's fun to watch it happen so fast. I drink a lot of tea, so the "quickly" comes in very handy. It looks nice setting on the counter. Overall, I am very pleased. I was surprised by how heavy it is, thus the 4 stars instead of 5. I would still recommend it to a friend.

Convenient breading

Love these trays!! I fry fish a lot and was using wax paper for the dry breading, and a plate or bowl for the eggs, but never having just the right size. Problem solved! These trays work perfectly. And since they hook together, I can move my fish from one to the other without making a mess all over the counter. Now that I have them, i wonder why I waited so long to get them.

I have been thinking about purchasing a stacking bowl set for some time, and I'm so glad I finally did it. The bowls sit nicely in the cupboard with a simple elegance. With nine different sizes to choose from, I always have just what I need. Not only are they good for mixing and measuring but they also work well for refrigerator storage. I really like them.

Never lose a spoon

I've been married over 30 years, and decided it was time I had new measuring spoons, and when I saw these, I knew I just had to own them. And they did not disappoint me! They are high quality, and I just love how they have flat bottoms so things can be measured out and then sit on the counter without spilling until I am ready to add them. The magnetic feature is terrific. Even though the spoons rest in a drawer with lots of other stuff, they stick together, and stand out so I can grab on to them easily. I can recommend them without reservation.
