Most all of the loaf pans I have found are dark with non-stick finish. Not what I want. Finally I found what I have been looking for in my Chefs Catalog. I am trying to get away from non-stick finishes and I really dislike dark baking pans. Thank you for having these and at a good price.

I keep my flour, sugar and powdered sugar in the large ones and I also bought the brown sugar container. I think it keeps everything much fresher and my cabinets look neat.

I bought the 7 slot in-drawer knife block. I didn't want anything out on the counter and I think it is a great way to store knives and not harm the blade or risk cutting yourself when reaching into a drawer with knives.
