Preferred for the long-lasting durability, bamboo is a naturally-sustainable resource that outperforms wood. Bamboo utensils are heat-safe to use with every style of cookware, bakeware and serveware. Harder than maple, eco-friendly, lightweight wooden cooking tools will not scratch nonstick, ceramic, stoneware or porcelain surfaces. Will not retain odors or absorb moisture. Stain-, scratch- and heat-resistant. End hanging loop. Hand wash. Solid spoon: mix ingredients in a Dutch oven, saucepan or fry pan. Ideal for stir fry, sauce, grains or pudding. Saute and stir vegetables or meat in a skillet. Serve rice or risotto. Perforated spatula: flip hamburgers, pork cutlets or chicken breasts in a skillet. Perforations drain grease or liquid, transferring meat from pan to platter. Squared edge lets you scrape bits from bottom of pan for deglazing. Single-perforated spatula: mix batter, sauce, marinade or salad dressing.

I have always been very happy with all of the items I have purchased from Chefs. This product is probably the highest quality I have found. The colors are very pleasing, and the performance is phenomenal! Would definitely buy other items by this manufacturer again.

 Tumbleweed Pottery Beer Bread Baker
Tumbleweed Pottery Beer Bread Baker
Tumbleweed Pottery Beer Bread Baker : Gourmet and home chefs prefer stoneware for its heat-retentive qualities and this beer bread bowl is the perfect solution for foolproof, high-rising bread. The deep circular shape lets the yeast in the beer create a lofty masterpiece. With the thick stoneware composition, heat rises uniformly, baking all ingredients at the identical temperature. It's fun to experiment and let your imagination decide the main ingredient: dark ales produce a deep robust-flavored bread, while lighter wheat ales create a sweeter taste. Side handles allow balanced control lifting from the oven and inverting onto a cooling rack. Performs best in conventional and convection ovens. Also ideal for baking seasoned dressing or use as a serving dish on the table. Dishwasher-safe. Recipes included. Product Features Deep circular shape and high sides to accommodate rising Natural heat-retentive qualities of stoneware for even baking Dark ales will produce a deep robust flavor Lighter ales such as wheat beers create a sweeter-tasting bread Ideal shape for baking seasoned dressing Attractive as a vegetable or salad serving dish on the table Recipe included
