I was amazed at the new nonstick performance of this pan. I made a tomato sauce that actually beaded up and slid down the sides. Amazing new nonstick! -- Cortney, CHEFS Senior Buyer

Perfect Serving Platter!

This beautiful large white oval divided serving platter is the perfect complement to my entertaining table. I have now had the opportunity to show it off to my friends and family multiple times. This versatile serving dish adds a touch of elegance to my table and definitely takes center stage. My favorite thing about this platter is that I can give my guests a choice without having to overcrowd the table with additional serving pieces.
At my most recent party, I served turkey on one side and ham on the other side, and my guests were delighted! Those who hadn't seen this platter, couldn't quit commenting on what a lovely dish it is: being white it will always go with any of my place settings and serving pieces. This platter is the obvious choice for serving meats, but I can't wait to use it again for special occasions and holiday entertaining with piles of fruits and vegetables, or maybe cheeses and sweets.
Easily my new favorite serving dish. I think anyone who gets this serving platter will be as pleased as I am by its beautiful construction and amazing versatility.

My favorite nonstick pan

Being in this business I’ve had the opportunity to cook with a lot of different nonstick fry pans over the years, but I can clearly say this one has been my favorite by far. I started testing the skillet over 6 months ago and between my wife and I, we have cooked with it more than 100 times. Since the surface is nonstick it has been used mostly for breakfast, including every type of egg preparation imaginable. However, it has also proven to be very effective for browning meats and sautéing vegetables.
The pan feels sturdy in the hands. The professional handle is easy to grip and keeps it cool, the tri-ply material cooks evenly; but the most impressive part for me is the nonstick surface. Almost any non-stick performs well out of the box, but this surface looks and performs just like new after using more than 100 times. I have the feeling it’s going to stay that way for years to come. I’m extremely proud of this piece of cookware designed by our company, and pleased to offer it to our customers under the CHEFS brand!

WHERE CAN I FIND A HOLDER FOR CRAB BOIL/BOUQUET GARNI? SIMILAR TO A TEA EGG?

in a pinch I've used a coffee filter and twine. Not the best solution, but it can work.

Is there a benefit to ceramic?

The main benefit is that you can cook on a higher temperature with ceramic than other non-stick pans. You can even put it under the broiler.
