A very fun tool for the grill. I've made quesadillas out of everything but the kitchen sink so far. Doesn't take but a few minutes on the grill. I used it for folded-over quesadillas and also for flat ones; works equally as well. I foresee also grilling thick slices of onion too, which usually fall apart in my grill basket. Zucchini, or fish filets, anything that is flat or you can slice flat, you can grill. Held a 10" tortilla flat with room to spare, or 2 of them folded over at a time. You will love it.

It's the best tool crock I've seen. Big and beefy without looking clunky. The removable divider is also made out of ceramic, and helps the tools stand up straighter, but it's not visible once there are tools in the crock. 7" diameter and 7" height, so you can really store a lot of tools in there. I purchased the red. It's more of a barn red than a maroon red, just what I wanted. Liked it so much, I purchased a second one for my cottage. A very good buy!

I love the separation, so serving two vegetables in one bowl is easy. Or you could use it for chicken wings and sauce, 2 different dips, etc. The bowl is not huge- I estimate each little compartment in the bowl holds about 2 cups or so. (A total of 4 cups capacity for each bowl.) And you get two bowls in a set. Nice look!

White wine displays the same improvements with aeration as red wine, yet the length of time can vary from minutes for young or aged wines, up to hours for bold complex reds. Each specific aerator draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the exact amount of time necessary for each type of wine, allowing wine to breathe instantly, while opening up the aroma and rich bouquet flavor. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass. Drip stand and sediment filter. Acrylic and silicone. Dishwasher-safe. Made in the USA.

I hear all the time about red wine aerators. I was happy to finally see one for white wine, as that is my preference. It is easy to use, and while I don't understand HOW, it changes the taste of the wine slightly. It's softer, more pleasant. hard to describe. Cleans easy, and it comes with a small 'stand' and a carrying case too.

It is sturdy, made of lacquered metal. The lime attachment is hinged in the middle so it's a one-piece unit. No pieces or attachments to keep track of. So when juicing a lemon, the fruit goes in the yellow cup, and when juicing a lime the fruit goes in the green cup. Then squeeze! Very very easy to use. Rinses well. It's a very strong juicer, so you get every last tangy drop of juice. Catches the seeds too. I am very pleased with this purchase.

You can slice up a whole pint of strawberries in a matter of seconds. The nice part is they are all uniform in size, which makes a great presentation in a salad or pie. I used it as well on mushrooms and on kiwis. Works well, though the large mushrooms were a bit difficult, even after I cut them to size.
Just a great product!

They arrived promptly and in fine condition. The design looks fine and permanent. Good size, will hold more than a few of each item. I was concerned that the potato crock wouldn't hold a 5-lb bag but that's not a problem! 12", 9", and 6" tall with lids in place. Love them!
