Good for potholders but great as a trivet

I use my silicone pot holders more as a trivet than potholder. They can be a bit awkward to use as a pot holder as they are a bit stiff.

I bought these shears last year and love them so much that I bought a set for both sisters and my mother-in-law. They are fantastic for butterflying a whole chicken. I've also used them to separate pork ribs and they are great!

This zester is fantastic. I've tried other zesters and they do not even compare to this one. It is fabulous for zest, hard cheeses, chocolate, ginger.... I find that the ginger works best if you grate it frozen. I teach cooking and after every class at least one of the students purchases this zester.
