I was given a torch of lesser quality as a gift, was hard to use and hurt my fingers. This is sooooo easy to use it is a joy. My family and friends love creme broule and this works perfectly, also melts cheese on french onion soup quickly. Can't wait to find more uses to play with fire!

I was looking for a pan for a 30 pound turkey. Although the pan looked great, sturdy....just wasn't big enough and I had to send it back. Therefore I am unable to give a full user rating.

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

Finally, a great pizza stone

I had a pampered chef pizza stone that I used for bread. The first time I used it for pizza it cracked in half....not fun. I purchased another stone on line, forget the name, world something? Anyway, it was too large for my convection oven. After reading the reviews for that pizza stone I put it in the bottom of the oven, which was out of the way of the convection element, as advised. Made pizza twice and it burned both times, the pizza and the stone. I was gonna give up and saw the stone in chefs catalog. I measured my available oven space this time and ordered the stone. Perfect the first time! Soooooo easy to clean and pretty too.

I am a big fan of glass and pottery bowls. I purchased this bowl as an extra to use wth my mixer. I now use it instead of the stainless one that came with the mixer. Love that you can see if the ingredients are completely mixed and that it is easy to scrape and wash. You can store the bowl in the frig with the lid on which is also a plus.
