Before receiving these racks, I used trivets or plates with paper towels to cool or dry and absorb grease. I find it can be used as a trivet for multiple food dishes at once.

I was impressed by the sturdy feel of the components. I like it's rectangular, so there's no wasted storage space in cabinets, as found with round containers.

I purchased this item after being disappointed by a different brand. I have noticed on cooking shows, that the dutch-ovens they used, were "Le Creusets". I should have taken note then. Anyway, I am happy with the results of this product.

I was hesitant at first because of the price differance from more prominant brands. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for"! I have used pots from a very well known brand and eperianced rust spots showing up inside the pots. Even one from the set that wasn't used right away, came out of the box with little rust spots and dull finish inside. I have not seen this happening with my All Clad pot. I am also pleased to be able to buy a truly made in America product, that is worth the higher price.

I have never owned quality constructed kitchen knives. Always cheap stamped sets that eventualy came appart and didn't keep a sharp edge. These knives feel solid and I am slicing and dicing veggies effortlessly, carving and handeling meat much easier than before. Very happy with my purchase.
