          These are good heavy quality baking pans and pretty much what you would expect from Wilton. I’ve never been disappointed with a Wilton product and these are no exception. I have a standard size oven and the large one just fits. It completely fills the oven. So it makes maximum use of the space. The sizes cover a good range as you can see from the pics. None of them are what I would call small. They hold shape well and I have had no issues with things sticking. I’ve mainly made cookies so far and they were all perfect. You just can’t go wrong with these especially since they are currently on special. You’re generally not sorry if you stick to good solid reliable brands like this for you Read More

          This is a very sharp knife out of the box. For the cost this is a nice set. I’d been looking to get another chefs knife and this one serves the role well. I have been using it pretty heavily about a month now. The edge has lost a little so it will not be something you never have to sharpen. At first it was my new favorite for tomatoes even though I have a couple knives made specifically for that job. It still has a pretty good edge but it is about time to give it edge a refresh. I’ve mostly cut vegetables although I did use it when carving a ham up for Thanksgiving. We usually do a big 20+ lb ham but did a smaller one this year and this did the job on that well.

At first it was my new favorite for tomatoes even though I have a couple knives made specifically for that job. It still has a pretty good edge but it is about time to give it edge a refresh. I’ve mostly cut vegetables although I did use it when carving a ham up for Thanksgiving. We usually do a big 20+ lb ham but did a smaller one this year and this did the job on that well. For a big ham it would be a bit too short but I have bigger knives for that job. The board is a nice size for chopping up veggies and carving a quick tomato when all you want is a smaller to medium board and do not wish to drag out a huge one. I find myself reaching for it a lot. It’s a size that fits in the sink easily. It’s also good to see something NOT made in China for a change. Hooray for that. I’m sure that has a lot to do with the build quality I could see in it right away. There’s a good heft to it and the handles are very solid and well made. I think it is a pretty good package for the cost. And it is razor sharp out of the box. Read Less
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, very sharp, well built

          This is a very warm very comfortable coat. I like that the coat itself is not super heavy. To me the weight is just about right. It is made of a fabric that is soft and not that noisy nylon that some use. The battery and charging system is nice with the battery having a charge remaining indicator that is handy. The hood is a good size for me and holds its shape when on instead of falling in my face. So I like that I don’t need to wear a baseball cap to keep the hood out of my face. I usually wear an XL but the large on this fits me pretty well (at 5’7 & about 215 lbs).

I usually wear an XL but the large on this fits me pretty well (at 5’7 & about 215 lbs). I have another heated coat that might be warmer but in terms of comfort and when you do not need a rain coat shell this one is I think a bit more comfortable. I rate it high in the comfort department – with or without the heater in use. It’s going to need to be very cold when you use that heater but when the frigid time comes around it’s sweet. It’s very nice for those late season football games and such. Or just a cold morning outside on the job. It’s not what I would call a real rugged fabric but that is the cost of being more comfortable. This one rates better than my other on comfort while perhaps a bit less on durability. It wears more like a jacket being light eccept it is a lot warmer than a jacket. So what is best depends on how you will use it. It comes with a nice carry case but to be honest I just can’t see needing that for much if anything. The battery and indicators used are easy to understand and read even for my old eyes. Nothing too complicated. If the battery holds up over the long haul it will be a real winner. Read Less
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, very warm, very comfortable

The quality of the finish is better than most of the blow molds I have and I like the fact it is weighted well so you do not have to weigh it down to keep it from blowing over when it gets windy. I might retrofit it at some point. I have a few supplies on hand in my spare wire and sockets (about 2 miles of wire and lots of vampire plugs and C9 sockets) so I'm equipped to rewire as needed. For now I am OK with it like it is even though I typically do not like anything battery operated. If the santa Read More

          These are some very warm gloves and it’s easy to see some thought went into the design. I found the joints on the back of the knuckles an interesting feature. That helps keep them flexible yet warm even though they are quite thick. (The outer layer is jointed at the knuckles.) I found the fit to be very snug but if you plan to do any work while wearing them you’ll want that. I can sometimes wear a medium glove and the large fit me very snug. I have to tug a bit to get them on. But once on they are comfortable. When I first put them on for a moment I thought they might not fit but I realized they were OK for me after a few moments.

But if you have bigger hands you should probably go with the XL. Today it is pretty cold and windy outside with chill factors in the teens. And it is toasty with these on. No problem handling cold metals. They seem very well built so I expect they will stand up to a lot of rigor. I tend to wear holes in gloves pretty fast. But these are pretty durable so I have high hopes for them. You do give up some dexterity due to the thickness but that is always a tradeoff to staying warm. Read Less
          Pros: High Quality, warm, fair flexibility while wearing

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.
