I already had a twine holder, however, it did not have a cutter on it making it difficult and awkward at times to always have to reach for the sizzers to cut it when i was tying a roast, turkey or chicken together.
This is not only functional, the wood is beautiful to look at, and the size is perfect. It would make a great gift for a new cook or a seasoned one like myself. This belongs in every kitchen.

i had been looking for glass containers to store and re-heat left-over food items in. Most everything offered was in plastic which i did not want as they are not recommended to heat food in. Then i saw these and immediately purchased them. What was best ? Their convenient size and tight fitting lids. They have been a wonderful addition in my kitchen for my leftovers at meal time plus they can be used for candy, nuts, dips, homemade salad dressings and so much more.
So happy to have found them at CHEFS

I was in need of pasta bowls. In looking for them all i saw were either too small, too light weight, easy breakable, scratchable, i think you get the picture.
Then to my surprise i found these on CHEFS catalogue website. When i received them i immediately appreciated the perfect size, simplicity, elegance and weight. They were exactly what i had been searching for. When i'm not serving pasta in them, I have used them for salad (it makes such a lovely presentation) Soooo happy with my new pasta bowls. I can't thank CHEFS enough for carrying these magnificant pasta bowls.

I had been wanting to replace a very old fish turner and after viewing a few decided to get this one. I have several other Oxo items and have been impressed on how well they are made, how well they have held up over the years and especially how comfortable they are in your hand. This one is no exception. I have used it for small items as well as large and because of the bend on the front it makes everything that much easier to get under, This is an excellent fish turner.

When i get up in the morning the first thing i do is have a cup of coffee. Through the years i have purchased one of a kind always looking for the perfect size, color, weight and one that would keep my delicious start of the day hot. So after careful deliberation i decided to purchase a set of 8. When they arrived i was thrilled with the size and the fact that they were stackable. Since receiving them i have thrown out all my other mugs. I am also happy that they are white because they go with anything i put on my table. Very impressed and very happy i took the plunge and ordered them.

How can one improve upon perfection. This 10 inch fry pan is just wonderful. This frying pan is everything and more. The weight is just right and the handle does not get hot. It is my go to pan and one i have used almost everyday since receiving it. It definately lives up to the description in the catalogue. Everything just slides and it's a gem when it comes time to clean it, one minute is all it takes. Ladies, do yourself a favor if you have been wanting a no stick fry pan. This is the best of the best.

Making Peanut Brittle has always been a family favorite especially around the holidays as gifts for family members and friends. To make sure it comes out perfectly you need a reliable ' THERMOMETER". I have used many and found none that were exact thus i was always searching for the perfect one. This thermometer from CHEFS is simply the best and has taken all the worry away when making a perfect candy. This is my last and final thermometer purchase thanks to CHEFS. I can continue with my tradition of making "Peanut Brittle" the right way.

Every kitchen needs one fabulous pot for when your making small or large batches of soups, stews, or in my case large batches of spaghetti sauce with meatballs and sausage, and this pot is it. . I bought this to replace a very old hand me down from my mother. The size is perfect, the weight is perfect, and nothing stuck to the bottom of the pot when i cooked my sauce in it . It is so well made, beautiful to look at, and the lid indeed works to keep the contents from spitting out all over your stove top. This wonderful pot is a keeper and if your thinking about purchasing it you won't be sorry.

I have a large processor, and a 1 1/2 cup. However i needed something that could chop and grind larger portions without using my bigger processor.. I came to Chefs Catalogue because of the variety of wonderful kitchen accessories they carry. I saw this item and immediately purchased it. It is a necessity at holiday time for chopping and grinding chocolate, nuts and more for all types of baking. If your looking to purchase this item don't hestitate. It will be a welcome addition to your kitchen and you will be glad you have it.
