I was a little hesitant to purchase this oven initially. But let me tell you...I am absolutely thrilled with this oven. It is PERFECT for one or two people without heating up the oven or even a toaster oven in this summer heat! My 5 year old granddaughter helps me in the kitchen...we used this oven three times in two days. We broiled a couple of small steaks, made muffins, as well as a spagehetti casserole.Holds more than I thought it would. Very easy to clean as well.

More sanitary than a bar of soap. You can put liquid soap (without beads) or hand sanitizer in it. The chamber allows you to see when it needs refilling. The refillable kind (with an insert) in the stores has changed its design, so you need to buy another whole new pump. Not so with this, just refill the chamber.

This bread dome is great! It gives a nice crunchy crust with a wonderfully soft inside. I like the fact that this bread dome has handles to hold the bottom, and the top has a knob on it to grasp. The inside of the bread dome is glazed, preventing sticking to the bottom. Another version of this does not have either, and I chose Chef's to purchase. Thank you Chef's for providing superior products.

These blend nicely with my current everyday stainless steel set. The handles are nicely curved and not "thin" so they won't bend. I look forward to my "adult" root beer float in the evenings (made with ice cream, root beer, and a shot of root beer schnapps!

I have two small frypans with YEARS of carbon build up. Used Carbon Off as instructed. Very easy application and removal. It did take two or three tries to get rid of the built up carbon. My pans are back to decent looking and I'm not embarrassed to use them.

This is SO much better than just an ordinary oven thermometer that you place on your rack. You can easily see what is happening with the temperature. My oven runs 75 - 100 degrees hotter than I set it to, which has ruined cakes, casseroles, etc. But not with this thermometer! I should have purchased one years ago! Chef's has done it again!

I have been looking for an extra long funnel pitcher for awhile, and this fits the bill. Holds a generous 3 to 3 1/2 cups of batter. No spills, no drips. Just wish it was a little sturdier as it is only plastic, but it works nevertheless.

The ZestN'est is what I was looking for. As you zest, it is captured in the clear plastic egg and not all over the counter. The cover over the sharp blade protects fingers.
