Another fun kitchen tool!

Not only is this spinner sturdily made and interestingly designed, it actually WORKS! If you like your greens fresh and crisp, give them a ride in this spinner after rinsing in icy cold water. Tap the button on top and the greens spin with enough centrifuge action to extract all the water. Tap the button again to stop the action, leaving the greens crisp and ready for dressing. The superior water removal allows salad dressing to adhere to the greens without a watery taste and appearance. The greens are so good and very appetizing, the Salad Spinner may even help to make salad lovers out of those who are not salad fans. Now that's a healthy new way of "going green"!

Aside from being one of the sleekest looking appliances in the kitchen, this food processor is an absolute wizard. It is easy to use, cleans like a dream and does the work in no time flat. It is one of the most consistently dependable appliances I own. This is made for the serious cook who needs to accomplish a lot in a short time. It has a huge feed tube thus eliminating a lot of the usual cutting the food to fit the tube. The smaller processor is also very convenient for smaller jobs like chopping nut, onions and making a few breadcrumbs. How I got along without this product is a mystery to me. It keeps the fun in cooking and remeoves all the tedious tasks. Don't let the 14-cup capacity intimidate you. It is just the most efficient tool you will buy for your kitchen and the larger size just cuts down the time you spend doing things. Buy the best; you deserve it!

Bit by bit I have collected all of the entertainment items to host the perfect fondue party. I have several very nice fondue pots but when my sister gave me the All-Clad Fondue Pot with the Porcelaain Insert for Christmas last year, I was in heaven! It is THE best fondue pot and SO versatile! It can be used for a nice smooth cheese fondue, chocolate or as a great pot for cooking the meat or seafood entree. It cleans up like a dream and has a stunning appearance. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Go ahead, you're worth it!

You will NEVER go back to any other waffle iron!

This is the at-home-version of the professional flip Belgium waffle iron you've seen in the upscale hotels, but at a fraction of the cost. It is a no-brainer to work. There are "beep" cues when it is hot enough, when to turn it and when it is finished. A measuring cup is included so you do not put too much batter on the iron. You can use the recipies that are included or use your own. While it has a non-stick finish, I like to use a light cooking spray between waffles. This is the fastest waffle iron so, be prepared to keep them warm or have folks make their own. Clean-up is a breeze and you'll never regret this purchase.

If you entertain, you NEED this!

We purchased this Broilking Small Buffet Server for entertaining. I am a Public Health nurse and I am very aware of the need for proper termperature control when holding food for any period of time. Not only does it keep food at a safe temperature to prevent foodborne illness, but the food also remains moist, not wet, and does not dry out. Each serving pan holds 20 servings, plenty for most gatherings. It is super easy to clean and the ability to use the base as a warmer is a plus. If I kept a few of these in my storage room, I could actually sell them at my gatherings, as people are so impressed by both its appearance and its ability to perform.

This J.A.Henckles Twin Pro-S 10-piece Block Set purchase was well worth the money. It contains every piece of cutlery that any cook would need for any style cooking. The knives feel good in the hand and are SO sharp! I have been cooking for over 40 years and I bought these knives when we remodeled our kitchen. Why did I wait? They make every task easier and fun. When you have good tools, everything is better and these are definitely a step up!
