Received this as a gift to make small cherry pies. (A generous row of cherry trees fills my freezer every year.) From the first try - fool proof. Really appreciated the cutter. This is a well thought out design. Even sticky bubble-ups clean up easily. Tried making chicken pot pie and was surprised that it worked quite nicely. While a bit small for an entree, served with a salad - a gourmet dinner on pennies.
This is one of the best new ideas in years! I'm ordering 2 more sets as a holiday gift to myself.

Old Fashioned Ice Cream in less than 30 minutes

This really makes incredible ice cream - EASY. No more cranking, no more salt, no more "strange" ice cream. I just put the bowl in the freezer the night before. The following day, I plunk in the ingredients and the machine does the rest. Less than 30 minutes later, you have incredible ice cream... every time. We even use it during the winter for "Vanilla Bean" ice cream to sit alongside hot, fresh baked, gingerbread or apple pie. A must for every household. Oh, and it saves money and is easy to clean.

Even a son can bake bread!

Remember the DAK bread maker? That's how far back I go with bread machines. DAK might have retired but I didn't. When my son (age 31) bought his first home in Denver, I got him the Breadman. Understand: this is a very, very fussy young man! I asked (nagged) him to try the plain white bread recipe, first, as a benchmark; worried about the high altitude. The bread came out perfectly! Now, he's playing with other flours and recipes like a mad scientist. He still hasn't used it to make dough (one of the greatest features) - but I'm working on it. Oh yes, it's a snap to clean! And he's saving money and eating healthier, fresh bread. Bravo!

Cheesecake is a SNAP

Cheesecake is my favorite food. I wear my credentials proudly (putting waistline). BUT, making cheesecake, even with my Kitchen Aid mixer was a bit of a chore. The sticky batter lined the bowl and I was constantly having to stop the machine and scrap down the sides. This blade takes away all that stopping and starting. Now, when asked to make another cheesecake batch (I never make just ONE) - I don't hesitate. NOTE: make sure to purchase the correct blade for your mixer, and ENJOY!

What a difference!

40 years of baking bread started to get boring. THEN, I tried this baking stone! I can't believe the difference in the crust and texture. I can make ARTISAN BREADS now! I can't believe I didn't purchase this earlier. I bought the smaller one, too; now making good use of my toaster oven for smaller batches or artisan rolls. Yeah, it does a great job reheating last night's pizza - BUT - how about MAKING your OWN pizza? Oh boy! Baking is exciting again. Thank you, Chefs.
