Orka Silicone Oven Mitt - 17 inch long :
17" long, waterproof and heat-resistant to 500 F,
this injection-molded silicone mitt lets you pluck food
by hand from frying oil or boiling water, and protects
from barbecue and gas burner flames. Fits either hand,
with ribbed surface for a sure grip. Nonporous,
nonabsorbent, resists stains. Dishwasher safe. Imported.
This mitt is great! It really protects -- plus it is easy to clean. I also have silicone flat square potholders which are fine for handling smaller pots or pans, but this mitt is easier to use and gives full protection when handling large roasters or pans. There no hot spots like in a cloth mitt that over time and multiple launderings becomes ineffective. I also like the bright color. It may look a bit like a cartoon hand, but it works.

I've been using my corn stick pans for years now. The corn bread sticks are a perfect touch in a bowl of chili and are much easier to eat than crumbly corn bread squarea. I also like the crispy on the outside finish on the sticks. After buying one pan years ago and loving it, I bought a second, since I usually want more than 7 sticks when I making them. Remember to season it, and the sticks come out easily.

Trifle Bowl : This tall glass serving bowl gives a tantalizing view of the delicious food waiting inside! Perfect for pasta and garden salads, or layered desserts! Dishwasher safe. 12-cup capacity. 8"Dia. x 8.5"H.
This is a great dish to show of f your trifle or 7 layer salad -- or anything else. Never fails to elicit 'ahs' when I bring it to the table and beauty of the dish is visible to all. (Of course my salads and dessert are all delicious, but looking good also helps). It's even inspired me to layer other things like potato salad and ripe olives, or layers of ice cream that look pretty when you them scoop out. It can also be used as a centerpiece filled with balls at Christmas, eggs at Easter, etc.
Only downside is the space it takes up in the cupboard - I store other bowls inside it.

Voice Alert Thermometer
Voice Alert Thermometer : This digital thermometer precisely monitors cooking temperatures and lets you know with a voice alert or beep how much cooking time remains, from 30 minutes to 1 minute from fully cooked. Preset done-ness levels based on USDA- recommended temperatures or can be programmed for personal preferences. 4 5/16" H x 2 3/4" W x 3/4" D. 6 1/2" stainless-steel probe: 44" cord; Uses 3 AAA batteries.
Love it! Since I can't have my mother in the kitchen watching the oven every time I entertain and get stressed out and forget to check the roast... now I have a little voice to tell me the meat is done to perfection, and not another beep that I immediately forget or ignore.
Takes a little while to figure out the programming but then it saves the day.

I got hooked on waffles staying in hotels that had a waffle bar set up with this type of waffle maker and a pre-measured cups of batter. Now I can make them at home just as easily and they always turn out perfect with no sticking. Plus, there is next to no clean up - just put the drip pan in the dishwasher.
I use the easy to remember first thing in the morning recipe of - 1 egg, 1 c flour, 1 cup buttermilk, 1 tbsp melted butter. Separate one egg and beat white until stiff. Mix 1 cup of buttermilk (or reg milk) with the egg yolk. Mix liquid into 1 cup of flour, add 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Fold in beaten egg whites and cook to perfection in the Waring waffle iron.

Finally a set of pots and pans that are easy clean, easy cook and durable. it was love at first saute for me with my scan pans, but just to make sure this was not a short term fling, I've waited 3 years before writing this review. So many easy clean pans that I've tried either didn't cook well or lost their easy clean coating after a few uses. Three years later this is still one of the best investments I've made in kitchen equipment. Now they've become my favorite wedding present.
