The canisters are nice looking and their capacity is pretty good. The metal parts or the locking mechanism is of disappointing quality though. The locking mechanism on the smaller canisters were OK but on the large ones the low quality of workmanship shows. None of them was straight and they didn't hug the lids properly. I ended up having to straighten them up so they will close properly. I am expecting more from Chefs.

I didn't have previous experience with stoneware bowls so I wasn't sure what to expect. They sure look beautiful but are they useful? Yes they are. So far I used them few times and they worked very well. I am just afraid that they'll chip so I nest them using the cardboard separators they came in.

The Batter Bowls look very nice in the kitchen even when not in use. I hope they are durable and will not chip easily, but only time will tell. So far so good.

I purchased a set for myself and after I used it for a little while I decided this will make a great gift for my sister so I purchased a 2nd set and sent it to her directly from Chefs Catalog. She likes her set very much. Very nice product, the no-slip silicone at the bottom of the bowls is great and the inside volume markings are useful as well.

Great looking. Easy to assemble and clean.
The only negative I have is that when disassembled the screw sticks down from the glass plate which means you cannot remove the leg and store the cake in the fridge. Also a cover would be nice.
