I ordered two of these and when they arrived, one was damaged. I contacted Customer Service about it and they promptly sent a replacement. This is a nice pan. Much better quality than you might expect for this price. Thick and sturdy. My old cookie sheets were pretty bad. Time to replace! .At this price, it wasn't too bad!

I purchased the small one and am back to purchase the large one. This set is very easy to use, and especially if you purchase pre-made dough, you can crank out raviolis and pierogis in minutes! Sturdy, well-made. It has little rubber feet so it doesn't slide also. Use of a rolling pin is imperative with this set, so if you don't have one you'd better buy one. Also the small is very small, meaning it only holds about a teaspoon or two of filling. If you want larger raviolis, purchase the bigger one. It cleans up very easily, and is similar to the size of an ice cube tray.

I just finished 3 lbs of strawberries in about 3 minutes! It's a great tool for this job. Gets out the hull and leaves the fruit behind. Cleans easily, just rinse! Genius! Also thank you to the reviewers who suggested using it on tomatoes. I never would've given that a thought, but now can't wait to try that application.

Now when I look in my broom closet, instead of tangled a mess of handles I see a clean floor and an organized wall rack. Sturdy. Holds a lot of tools. Terrific!

Possibly one of my favorite new gadgets. I just sliced a whole pint of strawberries in about 30 seconds. Plus they are all unifom slices and will be a great presentation in my salad. Can't wait to try it on other foods, bananas and mushrooms to start! Very easy to clean.

Mangles the olive

I've only tried it on olives, as I wanted to stuff my own. I used a whole jar of the large olives. I put them in every which way. I expected there'd be waste until I got the hang of it. Well there wasn't one that I'd stuff and present. The olives came out broken, all mangled up! Waste of time. In all fairness, I will give it one more shot using the smaller olives. Very disappointed.
