Chicago Metallic Commercial Cookie Sheet : Once available only to commercial kitchens, this traditional uncoated cookie sheet is made of professional-weight aluminized steel, so it won't buckle or warp and will consistently provide fast, even heat distribution. The sheet will gradually darken with use, which will speed up baking time and require slightly lower oven temperatures. All Chicago Metallic Commercial Bakeware is made to meet the exacting standards of commercial bakers and home cooks who prefer the tradition of baking on uncoated pans. Each piece is crafted from aluminized steel that combines the durability, strength and heat conduction of an aluminum alloy. The uncoated surface offers good reflectivity for even dispersion of heat and more consistent, even baking and gradual browning. After repeated use, darkening of the metal will actually enhance baking performance. Product Features Model: 77614 A professional-weight cookie sheet made of heavy-gauge, aluminized stainless- steel Traditional uncoated surface for consistent, even baking and browning Rust- and corrosion-proof Rim on 2 short ends for lifting; open sides for easy removal of baked goods Great for cookies, pastries, biscuits and more Oven-safe to 550 F 25-year limited warranty

This is a generously sized piece and it is attractive as well. I purchased the cream color and it looks lovely on the countertop. My only concern is that it appears to be a thinner type of lightweight porcelain that may chip easily and being countertop it may have been better if it was stoneware for its heaviness. Only time will tell on that.

This unit appears seamless and encapsulated yet there is a leak from the side which is a constant mess. I just received it, washed and filled it and now will empty re-wash and return. I may try again and hope it was just a problem with this single unit.

We purchased the set for both sliders and regular sized burgers and it makes quick work of it. I used a spatula to press the tops down lightly and make it very even. I made small buns with seeded tops and the sliders were a big hit. I also used the larger mold with the same results.

This platter is huge, it certainly can hold enough for a crowd. I am not going to reserve it simply for roasts to separate carved meat as shown.
With summer nearly here this can certainly separate grilled foods, cold cuts from breads, or seafood platters.
It is much larger than I thought.

Almost a personal barista, love the different coffees. More for coffee than espresso, but that was the intent. Easy to use, this machine has settings for heat, automatic on/off, amount of ounces and it has the fill-your-own K-cup in a compartment on the side.
We really love the machine.

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of this pot, making it even more useful than I had originally thought. The encapsulated pot is perfect for soup, but is large enough to handle lobsters, corned beef with all the sides, making stock and much more.
The pail style handle and pour spout are functional design that also looks great.
