Nice idea but comes up short.

This could be a great product that solves the problem of burnt crusts on pies. I often make pies and one of the biggest hassles is putting aluminum foil around the edge of the crust so it won't burn. This would seem to be the quick and easy answer but it has one big short coming (pun intended). It is too short. It barely fits about half of my pie plates and is too short on the rest, forcing me to now fit a short piece of foil in to cover the gap. Two inches longer and this would have been a hit rather than a dud.

I have had a set of this for many years and have enjoyed them a great deal but through the years some pieces got lost. I tried several times to get replacements but was unable to until Chef's started to carry them. Now I have a complete set to again enjoy and a few spares too boot. They are very nice looking on the table for informal and semi-formal dining. I may buy another set just to have.

Really Nice Kettle

Out of the box and at first look the Kettle has a clean and classic styling. It appears to be made well and it is easy to clean. The cord is generous length but the base of the unit has a cord storage system so that you only expose as much cord as you need, avoiding dangling cords. The unit heats a full pot of water to boiling in about eight minutes and then shuts itself off to avoid over boiling and running dry. It also has a strainer in the pouring spout to catch sediment if this is a problem in your area. The strainer is easily removable if it is not needed.
I highly recommend this Kettle.
