 All-Clad Stainless-Steel Fry Pan
All-Clad Stainless-Steel Fry Pan
All-Clad Stainless-Steel Fry Pan : From a wide, flat base, the sides of this pan curve up and out, making it easy to flip or turn foods as they cook. Designed for quick cooking in a small amount of oil or butter, the fry pan is also great for browning and sauteing. The 8" size is ideal for one or two servings, or for small tasks such as sauteing chopped onion or mushrooms for another dish. The 10" size is perfect for three to four servings, to pan-fry up to three burgers, or to make a generous omelet for two. The 12" pan is well-suited for family-size portions of meats or side dishes such as stir-fried broccoli rabe or pan-fried potatoes. The 14" extra-large pan is ideal for pan-frying or searing good cuts of beef and has a helper handle; we especially like it for making steak au poivre. Also great for making a big batch of potato latkes.

This pan is a great addition to any cook's collection. It's size is wonderful for sauteing whole fish fillets, cooking lots of pancakes for the family or making a large omelet. It heats and cooks beautifully and cleans up easily - what could be better.

This blender is the best. It is really powerful and gets the job done quickly and efficiently. I especially love it for pureeing soups. The texture is perfect, it is fast and easy to use. Be careful to put your hand on the top - especially when blending hot liquids - to be sure it does not splash. Having two containers is a plus and I appreciate both the glass and stainless steel - both are sanitary, easy to clean and hold up beautifully.

I have been using and loving my Kitchen Aid mixer for over 35 years. This beater blade is the best addition. It really does scrape the bowl and make mixing easier and quicker. The only caution is to be careful when adding flour to batters to avoid splashing. I have enjoyedthe beater so much that I bought one for each of my children.

I purchased this waffle maker becasue it is easy to use, takes up little space and was reasonably priced. We do not make waffles more than a few times a year - when our granddaughter is visiting so it seemed ideal. It worked well and was easy to clean. However, after a year and a half it stopped working - at all. The warranty is only for a year so that was that - not worth it.

These gloves are the best addition to my kitchen. For people with small hands the gloves are especially helpful. You have so much more control and they really protect your hands and wrists. They are especially useful in grasping small containers like ceramic ramekins that slip through your hands with mits. They hold up and wash easily. I have given them as gifts to friends who rave about them.

For years I used an inexpensive, old fashioned roasting pan believing that it did not make a difference. This year, I bought a new All Clad roasting pan and what a difference it made. It was easy to use - to lift and take out of the oven. Getting the turkey out of the pan was a breeze. My turkey was perfect and I was able to make perfect gravy right in the roasting pan and unlike my old pan, it cleaned up easily and beautifully.

I thought it was ok to use metal utensils with these pans. I understand not using a knife, what about a fork for eggs?
