Slices, dices and chops very nicely. Using the gadget to clean the top of the dicer makes for more thorough cleaning. Much easier than slicing or dicing by hand. It all stores nicely without pieces being in several drawers and not able to find them. Thank you Chef''s.

I was a little surprised that the smaller two are indeed just that - small. However, for a single person I am sure I will find something to put in them. It is nice to have glass containers, esp. for spaghetti sauces and such that would stain plastic containers. Nice that they nest together for storage.

I have been deciding for at least two months whether or not to purchase. I needed a new electric skillet, so I took the plunge. I was hesitant because I was not sure how deep the insert was and found I was pleasantly surprised. This skillet is the right size for at least two people. It it nonstick and cleans up easily. Temperature is adjustable from Warm to 430. Very pleased with this purchase.

These are smaller than usual funnels, but do serve a range of purposes. Will not rust as they are 18/8 stainless-steel. Handles are an appropriate size for holding the funnel while filling your containers.

As a home baker and cook, this is just perfect for mixing, whipping, and kneading. Its cycles go from gentle mixing to strong kneading of breads. I like that it shows what speed you are using without guessing which "line" you are at like other hand mixers. Easy clean-up - wipe the mixer down with gentle soap and water and put the beaters in the dishwasher. Cord is nice, too, in that it swivels 360 degrees - perfect for left or right handed users.

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.
