This is an amazing kitchen appliance. I bought this as a gift for my daughter and her large family. It browns perfectly and has a large enough capacity for her large family. I am sure that it will be used all year long especially throughout the summer when you don't want to turn on the oven and heat the house up. It is so much better than a standard slow cooker. It is worth every penny. Awesome!

This fit my ovens perfectly with no trimming needed. I have the electric ovens with the element that is raised above the bottom of the oven which are held in place by little "feet". The instructions are confusing - saying that the liner should be placed on the bottom shelf. I was about ready to return it but decided to do a little research. If you have an electric oven like mine with the raised - exposed element this oven liner will slide under the element and be fine. The problem comes if you have an oven with the elements that are hidden under the bottom of the oven floor. The instructions could be more clear.

I am so happy that I purchased this product. My knives are sharper now than they were brand new. The instructions are great and it is really easy to use. Having really sharp knives makes slicing, dicing and mincing a joy. An excellent investment.

I love, love, love this wok. It was great right out of the box and needed no additional seasoning. This wok is heavy duty and designed to last a life time. In fact I should mention it in my will as it will probably out last me. One of the best purchases I have ever made.
