Quality bakeware makes a difference!

I was looking for a quality piece of bakeware to replace my 20-year old angel food cake pan. This Chicago Metallic nonstick pan is far superior to other pans that I have used. It feels heavy and sturdy, and while the nonstick coating made for an easier release, my delicate batter could still cling to the pan for a beautiful rise. The cooling feet are well balanced and I no longer have to insert a bottle to cool the pan properly. My clean-up time has been dramatically reduced, as nothing sticks. The CM quality makes all the difference. My only suggestion is to possibly reduce your baking time given the dark coating. I like this pan so well, I bought a second one to make my baking even easier. Love it.

I have used the smaller scoops for years to make uniformed cookies, meat and fruit balls. When I saw Ina Garten using an ice cream scoop for portion uniformity on her fabulous blueberry muffins, I started my search. A traditional ice cream scoop uses your thumb to release the batter. I wanted a more ergonomic tool, like my small scoops. Stores and other on-line sites only had small scoops. Leave it to CHEFS to have the larger 2.5 and 3 ounce sizes. The stainless steel quality is outstanding. The release mechanism is smooth and doesn't stress my hand. I love the size and quality!

Finding a high quality cooling rack that can be multi-purposed as a roasting rack has been challenging to locate. Leave it to CHEFS to have the exact item! I've used it to cool cookies, ice sticky-buns, and nothing sticks. I have also used it inserted into a half-sheet cake pan to broil pork chops. The rack was so easy to clean. Again, nothing stuck! I love the quality, it did not warp under the broiler, like others I have used. I am very happy with my purchase.

This Nylon Fish Turner is quickly becoming my "go to" spatula. The width and angle are perfect for turning fish, chicken, and even omelets with ease. The edge is convenient for getting perfectly under the item especially fragile cuts of fish without breaking apart. Because it is nylon, I don't worry about scratching my non-stick pans. The stainless steel handle is easy to gripe and looks good. For the price, this nylon fish turner is a bargain.

More than an Asparagus Steamer

This is an excellent asparagus steamer. The stainless steel pot is thick and well made. With its larger circumference, it can hold several large bundles of asparagus. And because of the mesh cage, thin asparagus do not slide through. It is also very convenient to check the food without lifting the lid. Even with all this, it is much more than and asparagus steamer. I also use it for cooking pasta, and soaking/rinsing vegetables. I'm looking forward to finding even more uses for this truly "Essential" Asparagus Steamer!

The All Clad 12" MC2 fry pan is an excellent workhorse in the kitchen. I've used the smaller fry pans for over 18 years, but this larger size is much more versatile. It's the perfect size to saute vegetables, brown meat and poultry, and it makes a great Dutch Baby pancake in the oven. As with most All Clad products, it is easy to clean and the quality is exceptional. This fry pan is a must have!
