THIS IS MY NEW GREASE SEPARATOR

For years I've used the glass version of this with the teapot spout, but have happily replaced it with this. The glass version's spout often made pouring an almost-full separator very messy because of the angle of the spout itself. I don't worry about this at all now, because where the bottom center of the unit is is exactly where ALL my stock is going to go, and all the stock ends up OFF the counter. I just tried it out last night while making turkey stock in preparation for Thanksgiving gravy and stuffing (and after-T-Day soup). I could not be more thrilled with the practicality of the release system and my clean countertops.

I WILL NOT COOK WITHOUT MY GEL-MATS

After 40 years of back-breaking cooking marathons for holidays, gatherings and extended visits, I was at the point of saying “no more cooking for me” at these events because it was simply too painful and took upwards of three days to physically recover. My lower back screamed, my upper back felt as though someone had driven two railroad spikes through each shoulder blade, and my feet (arches and heels especially) refused to go another step and my knees would start to give out without warning.
THEN I DISCOVERED THE GEL-MATS in a local kitchen shop. I snatched one up after standing on it in the store for 10 minutes for our anniversary, which is just days away from Thanksgiving. With the Gel-Mat under my feet, I cooked up the usual food storm with pleasure and ease and comfort – for the first time in years there was no having to recover from extended cooking activity. The original 3-ft mat is now in my husband’s workshop (he had hip replacement surgery three years ago), and I just bought the 6-ft and 4-ft mats in the new design/color for our kitchen, for the stove and sink areas, respectively. I’ll be buying another mat for my sewing room soon to make standing to iron and cut fabric as comfortable as cooking is.
I WILL NOT COOK WITHOUT MY GEL-MATS UNDERFOOT. And I am not kidding when I say that I will bring them with me if I ever have to cook in someone else’s kitchen for a gathering.

I bought this paring knife at the same time as I purchased the utility knife, and I am way past thrilled. It fits my hand, and does what I want on everything I use it on (and for!) - perfect, perfect, perfect.

Wow - this cuts like a dream, from extra-ripe tomatoes to hard cheese to celery. Slice, cut, dice, mince - perfect. I use this more than any other knife in my drawer, and plan to give it to my daughters for Christmas. I was prepared to pay full price, but was even more delighted to find it on sale.
