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.

My half cut lemons or limes were always being thrown out because of shriveling, but these airtight containers help to preserve them. Thank you Chef's for having these kitchen extras beside "big-ticket items" to make our kitchens complete.

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.

Normally when you heat/melt butter in the microwave, it will sputter and spit if it doesn't have a cover on it. Well, this little pitcher which is the right size for butter or leftover gravy, DOES have a cover.
It is the right size for two.

Whoever invented this gizmo was a genius! The hours I spent peeling - when I could have purchased this sooner. Be sure to follow the directions and you won't have any problems. I recommend this to any home baker. My only regret is that I didn't get one before now.
