I bought a ten inch Swiss Diamond pan a couple months ago and like it so well I just bought the same pan in the smaller size. What better endorsement can you get?

I like poached eggs but rarely made them because it was kind of messy and hard to keep the egg whites together. I had tried using small ramekins but that didn't work well, either. The poach pods work great and I'm enjoying poached eggs regularly, now. The silicone grips make it really easy to pluck them out of the hot water quickly using just my fingers. The non-stick coating makes it a breeze to get the eggs out and easy to clean. I accidentally cracked an egg into one without using any Pam then cooked it alongside others that were sprayed with Pam. I could barely tell the difference when it came time to serve them.

 Curtis Stone Pop-Out Steel and Silicone Muffin Pan, 6 cup
Curtis Stone Pop-Out Steel and Silicone Muffin Pan, 6 cup
Curtis Stone Pop-Out Steel and Silicone Muffin Pan, 6 cup : Finally, a nonstick pan with a flexible bottom that flawlessly pops out your freshly baked muffins, cupcakes and Yorkshire puddings without the foods sticking or falling apart. The innovative Curtis Stone Pop-Out Steel and Silicone Muffin Pan eliminates the frustration of your prized recipes clinging to the pan or turning out partially half-baked. Simply invert the Curtis Stone Pop-Out nonstick cupcake pan, press on the silicone flexible bottom and moist, golden browned favorites effortlessly release -- all in perfect shape. The 6-cup Pop-Out muffin pan's cold-rolled carbon steel and FDA-grade silicone design is exceptionally durable and the nonstick interior ensures even browning and quick release. Sizable, curved handles are easy to grip even with thick oven mitts. In a stylish brushed finish, the Curtis Stone Pop-Out nonstick cupcake pan complements any kitchen decor and is oven-safe to 500 F/260 C. Celebrated chef of the popular cooking shows "Top Chef Masters" and "Take Home Chef," Curtis Stone designed his Kitchen Solutions culinary products to help home chefs create fresh, flavorful meals in less time. Classically trained by London's legendary chef Marco Pierre White, Australian Curtis is the author and presenter of the internationally successful cooking program, "Surfing the Menu." Reflecting Curtis' passion to keep cooking simple and fun, the 6-cup Pop-Out muffin pan makes it easier for you to prepare pleasurable foods in your own kitchen. "The Pop-Out Bakeware is going to make your life a whole lot easier. There's nothing worse than going to all the effort of baking a cake, or cookies, or brownies or a loaf of bread and then what happens is the food gets stuck in the pan. This used to happen to me where I'd bake and then turn the pan over and I'd shake it and the food wouldn't come out. So what I did is design a new style of bakeware, which is a fusion of silicone on the bottom and nonstick bakeware on the top. Once you finish baking, you can literally pop out whatever you bake because the bottom of the pan flexes. It's the first of its kind and one-of-a-kind. I really hope you enjoy the Pop-Out Bakeware as much as I do. Happy baking." --Curtis Stone, chef, author, lifestyle/food presenter Product Features Innovative pop-up base quickly releases foods from the pan Long-lasting design of cold rolled carbon steel and flexible silicone Nonstick interior ensures even browning and simple cleanup FDA-grade silicone on the pop-up bottom prevents foods from sticking 6-cup Pop-Out muffin pan's thick rolled edges prevent warping, even at high temperatures Large, slightly curved handles are easy to grip with oven mitts Sleek, brushed finish complements any kitchen decor Oven-safe to 500 F/260 C Dishwasher-safe; hand washing recommended Limited lifetime warranty

Muffins pop right out easily. Smooth top makes it really to clean. Only downside is that the nonstick surface makes it slippery to hold onto with a cloth hot pad, especially while popping out the hot muffins. Using a silicone hot pad would probably give better results but I don't have one yet.

It's much more convenient and neater than chopping with a knife. I can chop several handfuls of walnuts and leave them in the bottom container so they're handy for sprinkling over my oatmeal. The only drawback is that it chops too fine. There's not a lot of difference between the coarse and fine settings. Both chop walnuts into very small pieces.
