Product Features Flexible pods stay afloat and upright automatically to cook eggs in minutes Add a lightly-greased pod to a pan of boiling water, crack the egg into the pod and simmer Egg pops out with a press of your fingertip Silicone provides the quick and easy mess-free release Pods are heat-resistant up to 675 degrees F to bake flan, mini cakes or muffins in a traditional oven or microwave Mold individual gelatin desserts or freeze single servings of sorbet, gelato or sherbet
These little pods tend to tip and roll if one is not really careful when putting the egg into them. The water sometimes splashes over the top of the dip of the pod scallops when the egg is simmering. Taking them out of the pot of hot water can be a slippery challenge as well. But, the egg does come out nicely poached and clean. The pods are easy to clean and nicely nest for storing.. Overall these little pods do work and with some practice in filling them and getting the level of water in the pan right, they'll be fine.

The product itself is nice for standing in front of the stove or the sink or the counter area where most of the food chopping and preparation is done. It helps keep my back from getting as tired. But it is a bit too narrow. Another six inches of width would be nice to prevent one falling off when shifting a step back.

After reading other user comments, we thought this might be a more efficient way to keep our knives sharp. But it might take more practice. So far we've noticed scratch marks on the sides of the knives without noticeable sharpening of the cutting edge. The instructions indicate quite a bit of effort is needed to use the product, so we'll keep trying to match those instructions and get more proficient.

Looked forward to having a simpler, more uniform way of slicing a tomato. This slicer is not sharp, wont cut through the whole tomato without tearing, and refuses to cut the skin on the bottom of the cut. Used it on small tomatoes and it didn't reach the full width of the tomato. Can't imagine trying to cut a large tomato with it. Or maybe it takes slicer training to learn to operate it properly. A disappointment.

Spatula Spoon Rest
Spatula Spoon Rest : Rectangular spoon rest better by design to accommodate the large turners, spatulas and oversized spoons required to prepare appetizers, sauces, entrees and desserts. The perfect temporary rest for stir spoons, the chef's essential tools for achieving culinary perfection in the kitchen. This spoon holder with elevated rim collects spillovers to keep countertop clean. Stainless-steel. Dishwasher-safe.
This is really useful. I'm a messy cook, so having a large spoon rest is helpful in keeping the top of the stove and the countertop a bit cleaner. I bought two, so spatulas and other utensils have a place to rest. They look good with the stainless appliances and they are easy to pop into the dishwasher to clean.
