If you do Indian or Chinese cooking, this cleaver makes the prep work a breeze. Perfectly balanced, strong, and sharp. This is my go-to knife for any tough to cut food or any food with a bone.

Le Creuset Square Skillet Grill : Deliciously grills up everything from asparagus to salmon right on your stovetop, including panini sandwiches. Two pouring spouts and helper handle makes lifting and food transfer easy. Glossy porcelain enamel cast iron with a non-reactive finish doesn't require seasoning and builds up a patina to allow nearly 100% fat-free cooking. Enameled cast iron. Made in France. Dishwasher-safe. Product Features Molded of cast iron with an expertly enameled glossy porcelain coating Versatile for stovetop, oven and broiler Highest quality porcelain enamel coating is impermeable to odors and stains Foods will not react with the enameled finish Enjoy healthier cooking as deep ribs separate the fat from food Superior conduction of heat promotes faster cooking times Even distribution and retention of heat ensures cookware stays hot longer Suited for stovetops including electric, gas, ceramic, induction and halogen Safe for oven or broiler up to 400 F Use Instructions The distinctive ribbed base of Le Creuset's grill pans allows the cook to enjoy the flavor of chargrilled meats, poultry, fish and vegetables. After a light greasing with oil, no further fat or oil is added, so one can also enjoy the benefits of low-fat cooking. Any fat that escapes from the food is held between the ribs of the base. The deep-sided design prevents splattering onto the stovetop and the handy pouring lip directs cooking juices and excess fat away, if necessary. The pan can be "deglazed" after cooking with water, stock or wine so the flavors and juices of cooking can be served "au jus" with the dish. To check that the grill is hot, scatter a few drops of cold water over the surface. If they evaporate almost immediately, the surface is hot enough. Brush the ribs lightly with oil. The surface should not be smoking before the food is added. If it is, remove the pan from the heat and cool slightly before proceeding. All meats, poultry, fish and vegetables should be dry" before cooking begins, otherwise they may stick to the ribs. Pat dry on kitchen towels. Marinated foods should also have the excess moisture patted dry. Once placed on the ribbed surface, foods should not be moved immediately, otherwise the distinctive "char" lines will not be produced. Leave for 1-2 minutes to seal and sear the outside before turning over.

Perfect Grilling

This pan consistantly gives me pleasure. I preheat it first, lightly rub my steak with a little olive oil ( though you can skip this step if you are watching calories) and any blend of spices you like, and cook like on an outdoor grill. I have found that five minutes at medium heat gives me perfect grill marks. I flip the steak, grill another three minutes and I have my steak at perfect medium rare. It is also great for grilling chicken. In fact, I use it for fish, shrimp, and even eggplant or other veggies I want to have grilled flavor and grill marks. Clean up is a breeze too.

No more messy spatters or strainers! You can make smooth soups, whip cream, and dozens of other blendings right in the bowl or container.. KitchenAid is simply the best there is and a breeze to clean. Great for making pestos and salsas too. I use mine daily and after 8 years, it still looks great and works great.

Please don't buy this for the new cook..it is overly complicated and fussy. The steps are tedious and most are unneccessary to make a good product. I have it but almost never use it...However, if you are looking for an esoteric recipe like hogs head cheese, it is good for that.

First had the real stuff in the south of France. A wonderful finishing salt with a smell like the breezes off the salt marshes there. Adds a clean taste missing from mined salts.

The best of the best. I have a full set of Le Creuset and they are the best investment I have made. They cook evenly, hold the heat, and can go straight from the freezer to the oven..you can even cook on the stovetop in them..They may be pricey, but they outlast any others out there..The French know durability.

For ease of mind when grating, this glove can't be beat. No more worries about grating your skin along with citrus skin! No matter how careful the cook, it is only a matter of time till a slip occurs. This glove takes the pain out of the equation.

This is a truly amazing device for tenderizing meats without losing juices. It can make a tough chuck steak or top round tender enough to throw on the grill. It allows any marinade to sink deep withen the meat instead of just sitting on the surface. I have given these to all my friends who cook. Once you buy one, you will wonder how you ever lived without one. Very easy to clean too.
