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.

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.

My husband likes having a convenient place to stash his Fig Newtons and I like having a handy place for bread and occasional leftover biscuits. The only thing we don't love is the glass rolltop that gives hints of the box contents through the privacy glass. Operates smoothly and is a space saver. Pretty good product.

Works like a paint brush. My use is mostly for applying olive oil to flatbreads, pizza, etc. It works like it should. Find that the bristles splay after washing, so it doesn't stay neat looking. But it performs well.

Haven't used the tomato keeper much yet, because we mainly use Roma tomatoes and use the whole tomato each time. But the onion keeper is handy. Chopped onions keep well and it is convenient to store halved onions, too, for future use.
