I love the colors of these mixing bowls, and the sizes are perfect for my needs. The only issue is that large olive green bowl arrived cracked so Chefs sent me another one. If you're patient about getting all bowls unbroken, they are worth the wait.

 Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone
Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone
Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone : The Emile Henry Flame Pizza Stone superbly cooks brick oven style pizzas in home ovens and on outdoor grills. Innovative proprietary Flame technology allows the stone to work directly on gas, charcoal, natural wood or electric grill cooking surfaces up to 750 F. The 14" ceramic round stone goes in conventional and convection ovens and under the broiler and fits a standard 25 1/2" round grill. The Emile Henry pizza stone absorbs moisture from the pizza dough while distributing heat evenly throughout the pizza so the pie doesn't burn on the bottom before the toppings have cooked. A special micro-crazed glazing ensures crispy well-baked crusts, and unlike other pizza stones, this one leaves no food, stains or odors. You can cut pizzas right on the stone without damaging the surface. The Emile Henry pizza stone heats up in about 15 minutes compared to nearly an hour on some stones. Lightweight with large handles for easy carrying, the stone is naturally nonstick and dishwasher-safe. Founded in 1850 by the Henry family in France's mineral-rich burgundy clay region, today Emile Henry is the largest manufacturer of ceramic ovenware in France. The Flame process is a proprietary manufacturing process that is more resistant to thermal shock, mechanical shock or chipping and crazing than other ceramic products, including porcelain, stoneware and earthenware. Product Features Innovative Flame ceramic technology allows for high-heat cooking up to 750 F 14" round pizza stone works in all oven types including conventional, convection and microwave Ceramic stone turns all barbeque grills into an outdoor pizza oven The stone absorbs moistures from pizzas to ensure crispy well-baked crusts Evenly distributing heat, the stone heats up faster and keeps hot longer than ordinary stones Footed base provides more even heat diffusion Lightweight stone is 30% lighter than similar cast-iron pans Cutting directly on the stone does not damage the surface Large handles make for easy lifting and carrying Naturally nonstick stone does not absorb stains and odors Easy-clean stone is also freezer- and dishwasher-safe Manufactured in France from Burgundy clay and other natural products 2-year limited warranty Imported from France

This is the best pizza stone I have ever purchased. I made a pillsbury crust pizza and it came out perfect. And I love that I can cut the pizza right on the stone without scratching it. Also, look forward to using it on the grill in the Summer. I wish it also came in a larger size, but definitely a keeper!

Since I don't have a stand mixer I needed a hand mixer to make cookies and cakes. Cuisinart's quality and reputation were the key reasons for my purchase. The mixer blended softened cream cheese so easily, and I mixed in crumbled Oreo cookies without a mess. Love this mixer!

I bought this fluted cake pan to make pull-apart cheesy bread and it came out wonderful. The bread fell right out of the pan, no sticking! And cleaning the pan was a breeze. Love this pan!

I purchased this salad spinner primarily for washing lettuce and find that I have to spin the bowl and empty the water at least 3 times and the lettuce is still pretty wet. Other than the sleek design and sturdy serving bowl I am not satisfied with this product.

Great no-stick saucepan

I was in need of a saucepan small enough for single servings (ex. soup, oatmeal, etc.) and found the Cuisinart non-stick 1.5qt saucepan. I absolutely love this little saucepan! I made oatmeal for the first time and it didn't stick at all. So simple to wash. And it's a perfect size when cooking for one. Love it!
