I have the iSi whipped cream maker. I use it often for coffee drinks, ice cream and other desserts. Chef's has the best price on the cartridges, hands down. I found them in a gourmet store, but this is the place to get the best price. I've ordered these a few times and will keep extra on hand for summer.

I've been looking for one of these for a while and am very happy with this purchase. The silicone handle makes it easier to use than others I've had. It cleans very easily and is a nice size to put in the drawer. I'd highly recommend this item.

I have the 4 ounce ramekins for years , and have been looking for a larger size. These are perfect. They are well made, look very much like the ones from France(which I own)
and will be great for Yorkshire pudding, custard, or individual vegetable specialties, or a nice fresh fruit serving. I especially like that they can go from the freezer, to the oven, to the table or even go into the microwave. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for ramekins. AAA+++

This is a very good multi-purpose kitchen prep knife and bread slicer. It's a good knife for the money.
It's not a Carving knife, but I didn't expect it to be.
I'm very pleased with this purchase and may buy a couple more to give to friends who love to cook and Eat.

Bean Paste Is The Best !

This is the first time I bought the bean paste. It's an exceptional product. I used it with dark chocolate, in puddings and vanilla cake. Since it contains sugar, I imagine it could be put over pancakes. It's like a syrup.
I will buy this again.

I'm very pleased with these wooden spoons. They are durable and the perfect size/length. There is one for just about every cooking job from pasta sauce to flipping pancakes. I think the bamboo is better than the conventional wooden spoons which tend to splinter. AAA+++

Didn't Have Great Expectations, BUT...............

I've tried many cornbread mixes and have been disappointed with the majority. Since Chefs is selling this and I've been thinking of corn muffins recently, I decided to try Buckeye. I'm hooked. These are , without a doubt, the best corn muffins I've ever eaten. They are moist and loaded with flavor. I once had a not -so -bad cornbread in NYC with
Jalapeno peppers in it. I liked that idea. So, I made a batch of 12 muffins and put jalapenos in 6 since the children don't like peppers yet. They were a big hit with all, especially ME.
If you really enjoy a good/excellent cornbread, this will not disappoint you. I will always pay more for the best when it comes to food. I can be picky. Buckeye Cornbread Mix is going to be a regular buy for my family.

Gingerbread Pancakes And Waffles ?

Wow! Was I surprised when I made pancakes using the Gingerbread. I only bought 1 can to try because I was concerned that the gingerbread might be too strong. It's not at all. It has a definate taste of gingerbread , but not strong like the Christmas cookies. I've had the original and love it, but was not expecting to like the gingerbread so much and will be buying more the next time I order. I hope they don't run out of them before I do.
The taste, texture and aroma make for a delicious treat.
Between the Original and Gingerbread, I won't be buying any store brand pancake/waffle mixes anymore. The Best !

The Photo Is Deceiving.

I saw the pasta set and thought it looked nice. I read that the large bowl was 16.5 inches, but when it arrived, it is the size of a Large Mexican Hat. You can easily serve pasta for 6 with this bowl. It's Huge! It's not round and smooth inside the bowl either. It has unusual curves inside. (difficult to describe) It truly is whimsical, but more importantly, it's very functional and I can think of many uses. Besides the obvious, how about putting a layer of ice in it and placing slices of cantelope, honeydew, watermelon and fresh cherries over the ice when dining in the yard or patio in Summer? The smaller bowls are a great size also. I ordered the cups, but they have not yet arrived. When have you seen a 13 ounce coffee cup with a saucer? I can't wait to get them.
I sent a copy of this item to my sis and she bought the set plus the bread plate and told me that it's a must have. I'll order the bread plate and more of the smaller bowls. The names of Italian pastas on the bowls is fun. Bon Appetite!
