I've had a set of Pyrex cups for over 30 years. They had become scratched and chipped. Plus my sister used my 4 cup to melt candle wax and never gave it back! This Anchor Hocking set seems to be of the same great quality. Besides measuring, I mix and pour with these cups. They are something I can't live without!

These are great strainers for rinsing quinoa. The mesh is small enough to not let the grains through, but still works great for rinsing fruits and vegetables. I also like the little feet the strainers stand on, so the strainer doesn't tip over so easily.

I purchased the 5 qt bowl. I love the size for mixing up a large batch of waffle batter. The rubber bottom keeps the bowl in place and the handle is great for gripping while you are stirring.

I love these spoons! They are very sturdy and I love the blue color. The big one gets down into a large pot for easy stirring. And they are easy to just throw into the dishwasher.

I'm allergic to wheat and grind all my flour from spelt in this mill. I like how fine it can grind and that I can grind a lot of grain at one time.

This is a great mixing blade. It really does scrape the sides of the bowl as you mix. It is light weight, can be put in the dishwasher and is kind of pretty.

After breaking numerous wire slicers, I decided to try this one. I love it! We use it to slice strawberries, olives, mushrooms, and boiled eggs. I've never had a handheld slicer that has worked so well!

I bought the 8" pan to try it out. I love this pan and will be buying the 12" next. The surface cooks so much better than any non-stick frying pan I have previously owned, and it doesn't have the toxic chemicals the others had. The pan comes with a cute hot pad cover for the handle, but I haven't used it yet, because the handle stays cool with normal use.

Once you have used a Kitchen Aid mixer you will never want another brand. I have had this mixer for 16 years and still love it. I have thought of upgrading to a 6 qt model, but haven't because this one does everything I need it to!
