If you love to cook or bake, give yourself a treat and purchase a Cuisinart Food Processor. I have been using mine for more than 25 years and cannot imagine being without it. Slicing potatoes, onions, cucumbers, zucchini or any other vegetable or cheese, is quick and easy using the slicing disc, and the grating disc makes grating cheese or zucchini an effortless task. As a matter of fact, I cannot imagine making french onion soup or zucchini bread without using my Cuisinart! There is no better applicance for chopping onions, or any vegetable for that matter. It really makes all kitchen tasks a pleasure - from kneading dough, grating or chopping anything, cutting butter or shortening into flour to just plain mixing ingredients together. And it is invaluable for tasks that take 'muscle', A Cuisinart food processor is one item you will never regret purchasing.

Everyone needs at least one of these mats for baking. Especially good for those delicate cookies that need to cool on the tray before you can release them. Also great for baking cheese appetizers - all the yummy crispy edges come off the mat.

What a great knife! It has the quality you expect from a Henckels knife and beautiful design also. After using a Santoku, you'll find yourself going to it again and again. I gave one to my daughter for Christmas and she has asked for another. She wants to be able to have two in operation at the same time without washing it. I can't give this knife high enough praise.

Just makes life better

This is one of those 'little' things that just makes life better. The dispenser is a quality item, not chintzy like some you see in mail order catalogs. It even has a plastic grommet protecting the opening that the twine exits so the string doesn't fray. The twine is heavy duty but flexible. My very favorite thing is that the dispenser is short enough to sit upright in my drawer, right next to my scissors. Anytime I need twine, I just reach in and have it in an instant. And the dispenser is easily washable, so I don't need to worry about cross contamination from poultry, etc. Another item from Chefs that just makes life better.

Couldn't cook without it!

I've had several other brands of stand mixers, but the Kitchen Aid is in a class by itself. The way the paddle orbits the bowl seems to mix faster and with less scraping of the bowl sides. I've had my mixer for about 20 years and I'd get another in a heartbeat if anything happened to this one! From egg whites to bread dough, there seems to be nothing this mixer can't handle. Certainly one of the best kitchen products ever made!

Best gift I ever received!

I received this microplane as a gift and absolutely love it. The grating surface is exceptionally sharp making it the best tool I have ever used for removing zest from lemons, limes and oranges; and it makes grating fresh gingerroot a breeze! The handle is particularly comfortable to hold and the plastic safety cover is really useful, protecting the cutting blade and preventing an accidental cut when rummaging around in the gadget drawer. After grating, you can just tap the microplane on the edge of your bowl to release any of the grated product. And it rinses clean very easily too. If I ever lost this tool, I'd buy another one immediately. I highly recommend it.
