I bought the slate color as it was on sale (closeout color perhaps?) on a whim with a gift card and I couldn't be happier! I love pre-measuring all the ingrediants in a recipe so that I don't have to stop mixing as often or for as long. This have just enough give in them to make adding things into my mixer a breeze, yet are sturdy enough for hand mixing on their own. These are now THE mixing bowls in my house.

I bought the slate color as it was on sale (closeout color perhaps?) on a whim with a gift card and I couldn't be happier! Everything that has been said already is true. In a short time I've used these as prep bowls, leftover storage and to add items to my mixer. I think within a month, I won't know what I did without these.

Why didn't someone think of this sooner?

I LOVE IT! Works as promised and cuts the mixing time because I don't have to stop to scrape the bowl.
This is another item that I will be picking up for brides that register for a KA mixer. Something they don't know they need.

I can't believe I waited 2 years to get this!

I should have bought one when I got the mixer! The pockets are GREAT for holding the flat attachments, my mixer is dust-free and ready to go with no notice, and it helps my counter-top seem less cluttered. I'm now purchasing these as wedding presents whenever the bride has registered for a KA Mixer.

I'm mixed on this product. It can be used many ways, but the handles like to slip out of my hands. This could possibly be a hand-strength issue of my own, but it's spooked me a couple of times. My hubby likes it, and uses it.

 Joseph Joseph Cut and Carve Chopping Board
Joseph Joseph Cut and Carve Chopping Board
Joseph Joseph Cut and Carve Chopping Board : The angled cutting surface of this cleverly designed chopping board reserves liquids; once contained in the corner, they can be easily poured into a bowl. The double-sided board has a meat grip on one side for ease of carving and manufactured from high-density polyethylene. Polyethylene has abrasion resistance and self-lubricating properties which means that bacteria find it difficult to breed and knives stay sharp longer. Black or white.

Great for meats

As the other reviewer states, this is great for roasts. Other meats as well. I had thought I may be able to use the reverse side for veggies or even to cut bread, but the angled surface makes that akward at best. But for any type of meat carving, this will be hard to beat!

Great Knife for the Money!

This was a gift for my hubby, a caterer by day who gets roped into carving the turket/roast/chicken/what-have-you at every family function.
He loves this knife and reaches for it at least twice a month at home. I've had to stop him from bringing it to work as I don't want it to get mis-handled by another employee. It works quickly and gets the job done much better than any manual knife he's tried.
