I don't know why I have waited so long. I haven't used it yet but it has so many great customer reviews that I am confident I will like it. It is of good quality and I am pleased that it has a lid with it. Looking forward to cooking with it and I gave it 4 starts only because I haven't used it yet myself.

I have only had it and used it for a week but so far, I am very impressed with it. I still use butter to cook my eggs but there is no sticking to the pan and cleans up really well.

I bought this as a refill. I purchased this item and the holder for it awhile back on their own site and it has been such a blessing. No more struggling with trying to trying to tear off a piece of plastic wrap and keeping it from crinkling up and sticking to itself. I have probably redeemed more time that I can say just from using this product and its holder.

I cook my fries in the oven because I don't like fooling with a pot of hot grease. And though fries from the oven are not quite as good as those fried in oil, this product has helped. In fact, you need to watch that you don't let them cook too long because they do get crisp.

I purchased this as a gift so I haven't tried it out for myself. But I can tell it is of good quality and the style would be far better than those that hang around the neck.

I was running out of space for my spices and this was a big help. Thinking of getting another one, because I still need more storage space. I like the look of it on my counter and the quality of the product is good.

I wish I had bought a bigger size now that I see it, but other than that I really like the glass pitchers. I like that they fit in the door of my fridge as well. And I like the lid that can be secured with a twist. I will probably buy a larger one soon.
