I love using this to sharpen my knives. Before this I would just buy new knives and still had a drawer full of dull knives. Now my knives are sharp and can cut a tomato without squashing it. Looks great, wonderful quality, easy to store or you can leave it on your countertop.

The pizza peel is fantastic. I can now make my pizza on the peel and the pizza slides right off the peel and on to the stone. Easy way to get that crispy crust on the bottom of the pizza without having to handle the pie to much. The peel is the perfect size to work in a kitchen since it does not have a long handle but rather one designed for shorter work spaces.

This can opener is very quiet. It looks great on my countertop and I have always had consistent results with my Cuisinart can opener. No more hand cranked can openers for me.It is very easy to use, I know because I have problems hold things with my hands and it takes very little effort to open a can.

I love these canisters. It makes sense to me not to need to fill the canister all the time with flour or sugar or brown sugar. I need these products close at hand and with the canisters you have just that. Cansiters in a high gloss white and tight sealing lids. I recommend these canisters to anyone who does a lot of baking or for that matter cooking. Nothing better than to have everything right where you need it and right when you need it. Thanks CHEFScatalog.com for offering these quality and functional Canisters.

Not only is this the best mandoline that I have ever put my hands on, it is simply stunning to look at. Furnctional, well designed, quality and easy to use all in one mandoline. Now I can make potato chips and enjoy them without thinking about how much money I spent, or how many crumbs are left at the bottom of the bag. Two large potatoes equals a large bag of chips. Do I save money? YES I DO! Am I pleased with my purchase? YES I AM! Get one for yourself real soon and join the line of happy cooks.

 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

I always loved the idea of homemade pizzas. But, I could never get the crust to be crispy (always a little doughy, if you know what I mean). But now that I have purchased the Emile Henry Pizza Stone it is no longer a problem. This pizza stone will give you the crust that will make your family ask for homemade pizza instead of the take out kind. Not only is it functional, beautiful, but is designed to last a long time and give you many pizza evenings with your family. This product will not get lost in your cupboads, it is something you know exactly where it is at because you will use this one so often.

This product looks beautiful on my kitchen cart. But, it works exceptionally well and produces the juice you look for in stores but can never find. There is no better way to start your day then with fresh, healthy juice. This is a very powerful product with 1,000 watts of power. This is no sissy equipment, it is meant for foodies that care about quality and a consistent usability of their culinary equipment. Remember that cooking is love, love is cooking and to love to cook with this Cuisinart Juice Extractor, CJE-1000 is the peak of a cooking experience.

Quality and durability are uppermost in my expectations of cookware and this product delivers just that. I have bought the more inexpensive cooling racks and I have always been disappointed. Not so with the CIA Chrome Cooling Rack. This product will withstand considerable wieght and is easy to wash. The grids do not break like many of the other cooling racks that I have purchased. These cooling racks will become a valuable assest to your culinary equipment. Easy to clean, durable and high quality makes these racks a must have in your kitchen.

What professional or home cook can afford not to have these measuring spoons and cups? They are of heavy gauge and do not bend while you are scooping flour out of your flour canister. This is a product that you must own. I can assure you this is something you will go to each time you need a measuring cup or spoon. The quality is designed to last years with daily use.
