When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Cooking Enthusiast
My pizza crust was the best ever. I have used a pizza stone for a million years -- and I just bought a new one from Chef's as well. However, I love the way the pizza pan cooks the crust. I had the best pizza ever at a restaurant in St. Petersberg, Florida,and the chef told me the secret was using a pizza pan with holes. He was right! I'm looking forward to making thinner crusts on this pan that will be just perfect.

It is easy to operate, it has the most flexibility in terms of grill / griddle plates, it is amazingly non-stick!, and it is very handsome. Having the ability to operate 2 surfaces at the same time is very handy. Panini has turned out perfectly. I am very, very pleased with this product.

Professional quality mandoline. I read and re-read the instruction booklet, just to ensure that I knew how to approach it.... I love the fact that all of the blades are built in. Although it makes it a little bit (just a little bit) more difficult to clean up, I like the fact that I do not have to change blades, worry about the fit, possibly get cut by a blade, etc. The mandoline is stable on its feet, and is evenly balanced when you are using it. Fabulous purchase. Fabulous price. Fabulous potato chips!
