My Cooking Level:Expert
I got a set of 4 and I am glad I did. I already have some measuring scoops that I had purchased long time ago but wanted to get other sizes and extra for those days I bake all day long and don't feel like doing dishes constantly. I found out that the mechanism of these products (springs, levers) work so well and smoothly that it's easier to use these than the other sets I have. I also noticed that these are thinner so they are lighter and easier to hold on to for a long time. Very good products.

This food mill is very easy to use and works really well. And it's priced very well. I use it to mill food but also to make spaetzle, works like a charm! I also like the fact that the "legs" fold in so it's easier to store and takes up less space in my cabinet.

First of all, I cook everyday and I use my cookware a lot (meaning that they go through a lot of abuse from me using them very often.) I love these sauciers so much that I have them in all 3 sizes. The heat distribution on these cookwares are excellent, they clean up very easily, though they are dishwasher safe, I just hand wash them since that's just easier and simpler (and believe me, I love my dishwasher for convenience!) I have gone through so many 2nd quality cookwares in my life and wasted hundreds of dollars that I decided to only buy top-quality cookwares at one point. All-Clad lives up to my expectations and more. I know these will outlive me (these will easily last over 100 years) but that's fine by me, my kids will have fine cookwares to use for themselves.

I have had this rolling pin since Christmas time when I decided to make it easier to roll out cookie dough for my 3-year-old and 5-year-old whom I was making Christmas cut-out cookies with. Being so inexpensive, I was worried about the quality but it's very well made, not too heavy or too light and best of all, it makes it so easy to roll out perfect cookie doughs (or whatever) you are rolling in perfect even thickness. It even worked for my little kids. The clean up is very easy, too. I just hand wash them quickly and dry them. I like the fact that extra discs all store on the pin so I don't have to dig through my drawer trying to find the discs I need. Highly recommended.

Excellent cutting boards

I have 4 of these cutting boards, 2 in large, 1 medium and 1 small for different cutting jobs I do for myself and someone else who is helping me in the kitchen. They are very heavy and sturdy, don't warp and stay in good shape for a long time. I do condition my boards (I did it everyday for the first week and once a week after that) to make sure that the boards stay in good shape. I recommend them to everyone out there. The only con to these cutting boards is that they are heavy so they can be hard to clean but I think it's worth the effort for what you get. They also don't slide around the kitchen counter.

I have been looking for a right induction cook top when Chefs catalog introduced one. I immediately jumped on it because the price was right and it had everything I wanted. This product warms up very quickly, easy to adjust temperature and best of all, I now have a 5th burner that is not gas that I can take anywhere with me when I want to cook. I use it outside when it's warm so I don't warm up the house more and I simmer food on my island while I cook other dishes. It's a great product with a great price tag. I highly recommend it for its features and versatility.

I love this glove. I use it all the time when I have to grate my food. I no longer get chipped finger nails and accidental cuts and scrapes like I used to. It washes very easily and dries fast as well. Highly recommend it.

This lasagna pan shouldn't be called a lasagna pan because it does so much more than just being a lasagna pan. First of all, it's made extremely durable and well. It's even pretty to look at. It also does a good job distributing heat evenly so I use it for roasting meat, vegetables, making casserole dishes and dessert. The possibility is endless. Also, these are nice to hold individual ramekins in water bath. The handles make it easy to transfer from and out of the oven and because it's stainless steel, I don't have to worry about the pan breaking or shattering like ceramic or glass pans. If I can keep only one pan I have, this is it.

Makes my kitchenaid mixer more enjoyable to use

I love my kitcheAid mixer but there are 2 things I didn't like about them and Chefs Catalog's products helped me solve both of these problems. And this is one of them. I always had to constantly stop my KitchenAid mixer and scrape the bottom and side of the bowl where the paddle attachment that came with the mixer couldn't /wouldn't reach. But no more!!! This takes care of that problem. Now everything mixers well and I don't have to stop the mixer to do so. The only thing, be careful if you are using this attachment to mix something very liquidy because it does such a good job scraping, you will get splashed on yourself (or your face.)

I first got these bowls thinking they will solve my flour mess on my counter top from my kitchen aid when I pour dry ingredients but they do more than that. They are great for pouring batter into muffin pans, waffle makers, making pancakes on a griddle etc. The list goes on and on. They clean nicely in a dishwasher and they are light weight so they don't make me tired from holding them for a long time.
