Best Can Opener

I found this product along a rack with other Rosle products. I knew at first glance this was something that I HAD to have! But it seemed so expensive for such a gadget.
After two months with this gadget still on my mind I finally purchased it.
Worth every penny!
The whole house loves using this.
No sharp edges on the instrument or the things it cuts. The lid can be placed back on the can for storage.
I can't believe the ease of it's use. My grandmother even noted how it glided.
My only complaint is that it forces me to use the instrument with opposite hands, holding with left and turning with right. I usually use the opposite hands.
All in all though this is hands down one of our favorite instruments in the kitchen. Everyone should own one!

Cheap Alternative For Chilling Wine!

I received a set of these as a gift and they are a really great alternative to the bulky and expensive alternatives. I must admit they don't work quite as well but for the price they simply can't be beat.
I'd say they do a better job at keeping things cool then quickly cooling to the optimum temperature. However they do chill the bottles much more quickly than putting it in the freezer when compared to simply 5 - 10 min.
All in all I totally recommend these to anyone who needs a wine sized bottle beverage cooled quickly or kept cool for a long period.

My boyfriend and I received this as a gift from his mother and I swear everywhere we go we bring it when traveling. We go camping, out to the river for a day, he goes fishing, we stay in a hotel, and we bring it of course when we go wine tasting.
It's not bulky and containts a thermal interior to keep things snuggly warm or cool.
It made a great gift ot us as a couple and I highly recommend it for anyone who leaves their home!

All Purpose Casserole Must Have

I bought this thinking how wonderful it would be to have a general all purpose casserole bake ware pan. Our house did not have a high end pan yet so I bought it thinking sure, I'll use it.
And use it I do! The most amazing thing is that this pan can go directly from freezer to oven. It may also go straight into a microwave, but the freezer to oven functionality has put it on the top of my list of most used pans for make ahead in the kitchen.
It's so great for dinner parties and looks elegant.

Excellent Set for All

My boyfriend bought me this set two years ago and we still use these knives every day!
I highly recommend this set for anyone who needs a basic knife set. This set will work well for anyone from the novice, expert, or even the beginner.
I have much smaller hands than my boyfriend however we find the hilt and weight of these knives to work perfectly for both of our hands.
One really can't go wrong with this set if just a couple basic knives are needed.

Use Every Day!!

We absolutely love this food processor. I can't wait to get more attachments! We use it every day and I can't even begin to express how valuble this is for canning, but also amazing for everything we've made with it. I wouldn't give this up for any other item in my kitchen. This is the one thing if you are a total foodie or serious cook you simply must have. I have always dreading cleaning up in the kitchen, but no matter how many attachments I use with this thing cleanup really is a snap!

Best Knife

This knife has pretty much replaced all my knives. Of course I use the appropriate knife for the job but this knife has quickly become one of my favorites so I'll use it if I can. I am very short and small at 5' 3" and my boyfriend is quite tall at 6' 4" and the knife fits us both well. The knife makes quick work of anything that I've even found I use my mandoline so much less. I've never gotten tired of chopping even when canning hordes of tomatoes from our large garden. I would buy one of these for everyone I know if I had the money!
