I had an old electric skillet that still worked but I decided to treat myself to a new one. I chose the 16 inch to have enough room to cook larger quantities. Boy was I impressed (not easy to do to me). The non-stick surface works great (super slick), clean-up is just a wipe away, the glass lid allows you to monitor everything without losing steam, and the curved edges prevents food from getting in the edges. Very high quality and it is big! Glad I did it and would highly recommend it to others. So much improved over my old skillet. Looks great on the table for serving.

OK at first I said "who needs this when we have lids" Well now I wonder how I cooked without it. It is well made and works perfectly. I keep my (two) right on my vent hood where they are always handy. Best thing to keep things moist and hot. Placing it over eggs while cooking steams the fried eggs so medium comes out perfectly. Also put some cod in a little butter on a low flame and cover with the dome. Fish comes out flakey and perfect in less than 5 minutes. Keep them handy. Easy to clean. You too will wonder how you lived without them.

beautiful sauce Boat

The construction of this boat is beautiful. Everything they say about it is accurate. However, I am not sure if it can be used directly on the stove top even with a diffuser. It would be nice if they said this one way or the other. Nice size. Very heavy construction.

best corn stripper

I own a few corn strippers. Originally coming from the midwest, I love fresh corn but prefer not to eat it off the cob. This is the best stripper by far. It is easy to hold, strips about 4 rows at a time and is VERY sharp. Nice blade guard that is not shown in the picture.

super paring knife

I own probably 20 Wusthof classic knives including the bird beak, serrated, small boning, and standard paring knives. This knife is perfect. The serrations are very small and just exactly where you want them -- close to working grip. The whole knife is very sharp and construction and weight is what you expect from Wusthof --perfect. CHEFS delivers on time and the description is exactly correct.
