"My 12-inch cast iron skillet is always in use. Once a cast iron skillet is well seasoned, it is almost as good as a non-stick skillet: browns things perfectly, easy to clean, and can go from the stove top to the oven safely."
"I not only use this to rinse and crisp salads, but also store the cleaned salad in the spinner with a little water on the bottom. It keeps salad fresh for a long time. This spinner works very smoothly and easily even after years of use."
"I only have one pair of these tongs but am seriously considering buy another pair. I use them to serve pasta, turn meat while cooking, remove blanched vegetables from hot water, and much more. The locking mechanism on these is easy to use so that they store flat but easily stay open during use."
"This bowl has been a lifesaver for me! I love freshly popped popcorn, but didn't have room to store a cumbersome popcorn popper. This bowl takes up little space in the cabinet and turns out perfectly popped corn from the microwave without having to resort to pre-flavored, over-salted bagged popcorn."
"I think it is necessary to have at least 3 different sizes of whisks in a well-stocked kitchen. Sometimes you just need to whip up one egg, but at other times you may want a longer handle to whisk a custard or other hot liquid on the stove."
"Most of us have a large strainer in our kitchen, for draining pasta or rinsing fruit, but I've found it's also useful to have this 3-inch one for smaller tasks. Also, the tight mesh sometimes really comes in handy."
"I have a set of very nice Henkel knives that I use for most things, but I found this inexpensive paring knife was very sharp and a convenient size for lots of small slicing jobs. Also, the included blade cover makes storage easy."
"I guarantee you will use a large colander almost every time you cook a meal. I use mine to rinse fruit and vegetables as well as draining potatoes or pasta. This colander collapses for easy storage so it won't take away precious cabinet space."
"I use these large, rimmed baking sheets almost every day for baking cookies, roasting vegetables, broiling, etc. They are super durable and the generous size means you can bake more cookies at the same time."
