We ordered the Tuscan Red bowls and are very pleased with them. My wife wanted more color in the kitchen and these fit the bill nicely. So far, we've only used them for soup, but plan on making them more useful for salads, casserole dishes, etc.
Make sure you prep them before first use! I did the boiling water and vinegar treatment, followed by dishwasher cycle. If you skip the above, you might notice a foul odor the first time they are used.

Glad We Replaced our Old Oven With This One!

Our ten year old convection/toaster oven served us well, but needed to be replaced. I did a lot of research and saw the high ratings for this DeLonghi oven.
My wife and I both love it! The toaster function is great, getting the right darkness without any problems. We've baked things in it and also roasted veggies and are pleasantly surprised with the accuracy and quietness of the convection aspect.
The countdown timer is a nice feature that is easily adjusted mid-stream if you need to. It doesn't reset the oven at all, just the time.
The clock/oven display is one of the best I've seen, with a blue background and bright white numbers. The stainless steel finish fits our kitchen decor quite nicely.
The crumb tray is so easy to remove and clean, I'm doing it after each toasting or cooking cycle. The crumbs slide off the tray without effort.
Another feature that sets this apart from other ovens is the interior light. It's about time we can see how the cooking is doing!

We were in need of a frying pan replacement, so the search was on for a good, non-stick pan. I always search ratings and price before deciding, and this one was at the top.
I've been sauteing, frying, and roasting everything in it and just love the feel of it. The handle is very comfortable and smooth, and food never sticks to it. I can slide my omelet right off onto a plate without any trouble. The stainless steel bottom quickly heats and distributes it evenly.
It's a great value for the price.

We have a set of glass mixing bowls from years ago and they are very heavy when you have to get them out of the top cabinet. So when I saw these stainless bowls, they were a logical choice to replace the glass bowls.
I've used them for making pizza dough, whipping eggs, mixing ingredients for various breads, cakes, etc. And while easy to handle and lightweight, they are also sturdy with the flat bottoms. The rims are a nice bonus, especially for transporting across the kitchen with hot items.
I also found they are very easy to clean up without a lot of scrubbing.
