Wondeful to start a new set of knives for frequent usage. I really like Victorinox serrated paring knives also and think they are an excellent value--so does Cooks Illustrated!

Bought this for my son and his wife who are lacking in a good knife for everyday use. It'll fill the bill for them in every day use.

A super buy--as good as it gets. I like its depth as I can put a lid on it and cook a small amount of rice, vegetables, or mini stir fry for one-two people. I'd love to have the entire set. . . .. .

Chicago Metallic Commercial Cookie Sheet : Once available only to commercial kitchens, this traditional uncoated cookie sheet is made of professional-weight aluminized steel, so it won't buckle or warp and will consistently provide fast, even heat distribution. The sheet will gradually darken with use, which will speed up baking time and require slightly lower oven temperatures. All Chicago Metallic Commercial Bakeware is made to meet the exacting standards of commercial bakers and home cooks who prefer the tradition of baking on uncoated pans. Each piece is crafted from aluminized steel that combines the durability, strength and heat conduction of an aluminum alloy. The uncoated surface offers good reflectivity for even dispersion of heat and more consistent, even baking and gradual browning. After repeated use, darkening of the metal will actually enhance baking performance. Product Features Model: 77614 A professional-weight cookie sheet made of heavy-gauge, aluminized stainless- steel Traditional uncoated surface for consistent, even baking and browning Rust- and corrosion-proof Rim on 2 short ends for lifting; open sides for easy removal of baked goods Great for cookies, pastries, biscuits and more Oven-safe to 550 F 25-year limited warranty
