I like this Cuisinart product, though it does seem a bit lightweight compared to my old Cuisinart Food Processor. I need a larger size work bowl and it definately gives me that, and I do like having the smaller work bowl incorporated into the total mechinism, which makes it very convenient. It seems to meet my needs just fine.

I very much like my new Oxo salad spinner, I have had an Oxo spinner for many years and have always appreciated it's utility and convience. Howerver, the new redesign definately has included some much needed improvements, expecially being able to remove parts of the lid for cleaning. The capacity is slightly smaller than my old one but a small concern when compared to being able to more thourghly clean the entire spinner.

This item is of very little help with chopping vegtables or anything else. It is mostly in the way and I find it difficult to hold anything with this device on my middle finger. Do not recommend. Will be returning this item.

CHEFS Never-Burn Sauce Pot : With all of today's scientific and technological advances in stainless-steel pots, there had to be a better way to prevent sauces and chowders from overcooking and burning on a stove top. After years of research, the never-burn pot was born, developed by Italian home chef Paul Scioscio, with a passion for cooking and serving perfect sauces. Constructed of a 1.2mm thick outer shell of commercial-grade, mirror-polished 18/8 stainless-steel, and alternating layers of high-quality aluminum and steel on the bottom, this patented 7-layer base eliminates stirring. The real secret to this incredible sauce pot is the hermetically-sealed silicone oil chamber, ensuring burn-free heat distribution. No hot spots, no burning or stirring. Will not scorch thick tomato-based marinara, creamy Alfredo or rich cioppino. With convenient etched interior measurements in quarts/cups, this multi-use CHEFS cookware lets you measure and cook all in one pot. High sides and slightly-domed lid control splatters. Masterfully engineered from concept to design, every convenience for the chef has been integrated into the pot. Tempered glass lid on the never-burn pot includes stainless-steel rim for tight-fitting seal. Vents let steam escape to prevent boilovers. Extra-wide, riveted stainless-steel handle allows a firm grip, even with oven mitts. The squared, heat-resistant solid cast stainless-steel handles on this sauce pot are intuitively engineered for safe grip and easier lifting, even with oven mitts. Handles are double-riveted for strength and durability. The never-burn pot is a first in proficiency in the cookware industry. Suitable for all cooktops, including induction. Dishwasher-safe. CHEFS signature collection of professional-quality cookware, kitchen tools, bakeware, dinnerware and more is meticulously crafted and tested to delight the most discerning cook. CHEFS commitment to innovative, functional design is the key to delivering products of exceptional quality, performance and durability for home and professional kitchens.

I like this pot for it's gentle cooking and well engineered construction. However, it is very heavy and that is a consideration if you are older. Also keep an eye on the liquid level while cooking with this pot, it is not a miracle worker. I failed to check on the liquid and lightly scorched some beans, it was not the fault of the pot. They stuck but came loose right away with a bit of scrapping with a bambo spoon.

I very much like this roaster, it did a terrific job on the pork roast I cooked for Thanksgiving, the roast was enjoyed by all. The rack is an excellent fit in the pan with minimal shifting, and being able to use this pan on the stovetop as well as in the oven is a real plus for making a sauce or gravy using pan drippings.

This is the first time I have used this brand of food wrap and I like the performance of the product, however, I find the cutting of the product problematic. I think a metal edge would improve it's useability considerably.
