I love to cook for a crowd and have needed this bowl for so long. Finally, this year I was able to mix up my Thanksgiving stuffing in one bowl. I'll use it for many things. A real necessity for a large family with an enthusiastic cook. Lightweight as well.

I love Beer Butt Chicken and I liked the idea of my turkey cooking from all around at once. The turkey came out moist and juicy and flavored with the apple cider I put in the cannon. What I didn't expect and was thrilled by, is the fact that the heat of the cannon sped the cooking process so much. I always cook turkey by temperature keeping in mind the 20 minute per pound rule. Well the cannon heated the turkey from the inside as well and cut almost one hour off the cooking time yet the turkey was done, moist, juicy and delicious. I showed it to everyone at the table and gave it all deserved kudos!!! Buy it - you'll love it.

As a busy working mom, I love a quick and delicious dinner ready when I arrive home. Crockpot cooker for many years, my family's size and appetite finally outgrew (by a lot) my old crockpot's capacity. I was looking for a large unit with a removable insert that could be used on the stovetop for browning meats. This met all my criteria and hasn't disappointed me in any way at all. I have used it any number of times and everything I've made in it has come out fabulous. Thanks Chefs for making such a great product available!

I have been a Cuisinart food processor user for many years but I needed a larger food processor and wanted something different. I have other Kitchen Aid appliances and am very happy with those, so I decided to try this model. It was a wonderful choice. Powerful motor, large capacity and the quality and reliability of the Kitchen Aid brand. I no longer have to break large meals into batches - hooray! I also love the red to match my other red kitchen items.

I love to cook and I like versatile appliances. I have no time or patience for "wimpy" machines. This mixer fills the bill. From whipped cream to mixing meatloaf (without the greasy, gooey hands) this machine does it all. I haven't kneaded bread dough in it yet - but I specifically bought this heavy duty model because my friends who bake a lot all told me that the "artisan" variety just isn't as strong, especially for whole wheat and other whole grain breads which I love so much. This isn't a small investment - but it is one I'm glad I made.

Finally - a Keeper!

I have gone through several grill pans looking for something cheaper than this one and ended up throwing my money away twice before, so I finally bit the bullet and bought this one. I've been using it for over a year now and it never disappoints and after cleaning it still looks brand new. This was my first piece of Calphalon One - but it wasn't my last. What I like about it is that it doesn't have a non-stick coating which always ends up chipping away. Unlike the cast iron grill pan sitting in my basement - it's not two tons to lift and its very easy to clean. After grilling, I usually set it to soak while eating the delicious grilled food, and by the time dinner's done - a quick wash with a soapy scrubby takes it all off and I'm done. I use it for steaks, chicken and fish and it cooks well at all temperature levels. I finally found a keeper.

This item was recommended to me by a friend and I consider it a great favor. Smoothly pureed soups from major chunks without transferring in batches alone would make this a worthwhile purchase, but then you add the chopper, the whisk and the sturdy blending beaker and the possibilities are limitless. A keeper!

Best blender I ever had! What makes this one superior? The workhorse motor and the glass carafe. Purees the heartiest soups to perfect smoothness - even when piping hot. Crushes ice in cocktails like a champ. Makes a mean fruit smoothie using frozen fruit and very little liquid. It doesn't make struggling motor sounds like some of the wimpier blenders I've had in the past. This one gets two giant "thumbs up".

The Waring Flip Waffler is a favorite applicance. I generally don't care for appliances that have a single purpose, but this one is fantastic. From adults to the youngest child - the ease of use makes this one first rate. Fill the little cup with batter, pour it on, close and flip and then wait seconds for the aroma to arouse your appetite. A minute later, your perfect waffle slips right off the non-stick surface and onto your plate - practically instant gratification. The kudos abound. Easy clean up (just wipe the plates with a damp cloth and if there are any drips, the drip tray goes right into the dishwasher). Fantastic!
