Consisting of a plastic container and a stainless-steel,fine-mesh strainer, this simple unit converts 3 cups of yogurt into 1cup of thick, creamy yogurt cheese in about 24 hours of refrigeration.(Thickening continues for 24 hours, though a thinner yogurt cheeseresults in as little as 2 hours.) The yogurt cheese then becomes ahealthful, calcium-rich, low-fat alternative to cream cheese,mayonnaise, sour cream, and even whipping cream. It can be used as aspread, in salad dressings, to top baked potatoes, mixed with fruit,and to make cheesecake. The unit works by allowing the whey (liquid) inyogurt to drain away, leaving the curds behind. The container isdishwasher-safe and seals to prevent odor transfer while it's in therefrigerator. Simple instructions and recipes for using yogurt cheeseare included. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you can use a spoon - you can make yogurt cheese...
So, I stole it from the Yo-cheese folks - I bought their cookbook!

This is the simplest and best device for making yogurt cheese. It makes yogurt "cream" in 2 hours, and yogurt cheese stiff enough to make a cheesecake overnight.

A few details. If you fill the device full of yogurt, you need to dump the whey after about 1/2 hour as it gets full. After you have drained the yogurt, empty it by up-ending it into a bowl with a larger mouth than the device, otherwise you waste some of the cheese scraping it out with a spoon.

I use the yogurt cheese to extend mayonaise and sour cream. I've made a lovely low-fat cheesecake with it, mixing it it 2/1 ratio with neufchatel cheese. I have used it in white sauces, and it makes them creamy and yummy!

We bought this to incorporate yogurt cheese into our diet to got lower fat and reduce saturated fat because of cholesterol concerns. It's a great device and it's never not in use at our house!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice item!
I have tried making yogurt cheese the "old way" with a colander, cheesecloth, etc., and found it to be messy and not worthwhile. I have to echo the sentiments of others here that this is a much better way. Takes up less space in the fridge, cleans up very easily, more sanitary, and the sealed container keeps out refrigerator odors. Plus I found that the draining screen's wave design bottom seems to help speed up the draining process when compared to the "old way." The result is a nice, compact product with fewer soggy spots. Definitely worth the price, you probably won't find it cheaper anywhere else, and it seems to be very durable, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great labane maker - But that's not enough for real labane
This is a fast easy way to make labane cheese. The traditional way involves seething the yogurt through a hanging bag of cheese cloth or any cloth to the same effect(the secret is to rub salt on the outside of the cheese cloth to prevent the cheese cloth from smelling). But this product allows simplifying the procedure and allow it to take place in the fridge.
Even though I am very satisfied with the product the labane didn't come out quite like I am used to and like, and I attribute it to the quality of the yogurts in the states. But I haven't yet tried it with yogurt I made myself or with a real yogurt from the middle east. The yogurts here are just not sour enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Delicious yogurt cheese
This makes a compact pyramid of tasty yogurt cheese or "laban." This is simply the yogurt curd with the watery portion removed. A lump of this cheese, sweetened with a touch of powdered sugar and served with strawberries is a low-fat dessert if you use non-fat yogurt. The cheese also works as a sour-cream substitute. You can even make "coeur a la creme" with it. This works better than cheesecloth and colander or sieve. If you like yogurt cheese or are on a low-fat diet, this is a handy thing to have.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Item Especially With Goldbeck's Guide
Yogurt cheese (or YoChee) is a great low-calorie, low-fat, calcium rich substitute for creamy foods like mayo, sour cream, butter etc. To get the most out of yogurt cheese get "Eat Well the YoChee Way" (Ceres Press) by Nikki & David Goldbeck. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Fresh pineapple has a tropical, delicious taste … but many folks can’t figure out how to get past this fruit’s thorny exterior to the sweet inside and resort to buying those perfect little rings in a can. This pineapple slicer peels, cores, and slices a fresh specimen in less than 30 seconds so there is no excuse for ever buying canned pineapple again. To use this ingenious little tool, you must first cut the top off of your fresh pineapple. Next, place the slicer in the middle of the pineapple and push down while turning the handle in a clockwise motion. Pull the slicer straight out of the pineapple and--voila!--your perfect little rings come out with the tool while the rough shell stays behind. Finally, simply slide the handle off the slicer and the pineapple rings slide off with it. The pineapple shell remains intact so you can use it as a dessert bowl or as a glass for piña coladas. The slicer comes with three blades to tackle pineapples of any size. This tool has garnered several prestigious design awards from all over the world, including Germany’s Award for Good Industrial Design, Holland’s ION’s Good Industrial Design award, and Japan’s MITI Award for Excellent Foreign Product. --Cristina Vaamonde ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Memories of Hawaii While in Michigan
Alright, I don't know how really fresh the pineapple is in Michigan, but they sell it at the grocery store. My family just loves fresh pineapple, (the canned stuff can stay in the can), but it is such a hassle to try to clean and core and slice the pineapple. NOT WITH THIS gadget!

In less than one minute, I can peel, core, slice and serve fresh pineapple rings, with very little mess to clean up afterwards. Even better, the shell remains intact for use as a fancy serving bowl along with the watermelon bowl! We are having fresh pineapple more often, and the memories of the Hawaii trip are discussed each and every time the perfect pineapple is served.

With three different blade singes, almost all pineapple sizes are covered. A great little gadget for the price!

5-0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC ITEM - IT'S SO EASY TO USE
I love eating pineapple but used to hate having to deal with it until I bought an Easy Slicer. It's takes about 30 seconds to do a whole pineapple and there's no mess. You can peel, core and slice just one slice or do the whole pineapple and you are left with the pineapple 'shell' intact to use as a serving bowl. It's brilliant and works so well. I highly recommend this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
This ranks as my top kitchen gadget purchase ever! The three different size slicers make it easy to slice any size pineapple, and it leaves the outside intact... making a great fruit dish for entertaining.

Plus, you don't lose all that yummy pineapple juice on your cutting board. When the pineapple is removed, the extra juice remains inside and you can enjoy a small cup of fresh pineapple juice in addition to the perfectly cut pineapple rings.

I would highly recommend this product. I use it frequently, and with the time I've saved, it's easily been worth the modest price.

5-0 out of 5 stars IT'S MAGIC (according to my 4 year old niece)
It's amazing...you will never buy canned pinapple again. Just twist it in, and watch it cut through. When you reach the bottom, just twist out while pulling up on the handle, and the rings come right out. The core remains inside. Just slide the rings off the blade, and you are done. I eat fresh pinapple with breakfast, and as a healty snack each evening.
The shells make great party decorations!
Highly recommended.

This is great!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Works like a charm!
I found this tool to do exactly as promised: perfectly cored and sliced pineapple in no time at all. Very, very easy to use, and much less messy than the usual way of cutting up pineapple. It also seems that you don't waste a lot of fruit in the cutting, especially with 3 sizes of the tool included. Excellent product! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Seems to work pretty good
As far as a vaccum canister it is far superior to round containers that are availible. The nice part being that it is a better shape for leaving in the fridge and stacking things on top of it.

The tray iself is made of some pretty thick plastic, its not a wimpy thing. Two parts, there is a lid with a silicone gasket around the edge and then the bowl of the tray. The bowl can be machine washed. There is a valve on the top with 3 settings. Open/Vaccum/Close. To use hook the accessory hose up to the valve in Vaccum mode and engage the pump. My 550 takes about 20+ seconds to evacuate the air out with about a pound of meat in the tray.

Its kind of weird but the top is held on by vaccum pressure so if the tray is emty and you grab the top only the lid comes off. But once the vaccum is pulled they are very well held together.
The tray can hold a good amount of food. I like the dimensions.

It is said that using vaccum makes things marinate faster. I'm not sure how true this is as I have never done a side by side comparison. But I have observed one thing. I was making some Jerky and I put one batch in the tray and vaccumed it and put the other batch in a non-vaccum container of similar dimensions. Left both overnight. In the morning when I went mix the meats up so it would marinate evenly all of the marinate in the vaccum tray was gone, it had been sucked up by the mean. The regular tray still had marinade in it. Same meat, same basic marinate (one had chili pepper for some extra heat). The strength of the marinade seem stronger in the finished product as well. So I guess there is something to it.

Either way when I marinate something for a short time I always use the vaccum (if for no other reason than to justify all the money I spent on it).

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must For Marinating!
I own a FoodSaver Vac 1050 and I also had an earlier FoodSaver model which died from years of constant use. I have had the square canister for a number of years, in fact I now have two of them. Suffice it to say, they are a great companion to the vacuum sealer. As the title of the review says, this product is great for marinating steaks, chops, poultry parts etc. Your marinade is able to penetrate deeper into the fiber of the meat and thus you get a much more tender cut.

But I also keep leftovers and cold cuts sealed in this unit. It stores quite well in the refrigerator due to its compact size. Food really does stay much fresher in a vaccuum packed container and the canister is more convenient than constantly sealing, cutting and re-sealing vaccuum bags.

Because you will be able to maintain the freshness of your food(s) longer, this unit will more than pay for itself in no time. If you own a FoodSaver, this is a perfect companion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just good for marinading
In addition to its excellent use for marinading meats, I find the square canister to be far more practical than the round containers for storage in the fridge because the shorter height can more easily fit on any shelf and can be stacked. It just makes a lot more sense than trying to fit round containers into a square hole.

It's perfect for square or flat foods like sliced cold cuts, whole sandwiches, square cut cheese, hor d'oeuvres, leftover slices of pie, garlic bread, and pizza slices!

According to Tilia, the square base is the only container that is microwave safe for heating food (not for cooking), so it can be directly used for reheating soups, casseroles, leftovers, etc. without having to transfer to another dish that will need to be cleaned later.

Tossed salads can be prepared in advance, vacuum sealed to maintain freshness, and then conveniently eaten directly out of the container, unlike the round containers that are too deep to use in this way. With a small insulated cooler and a refreezable gel pack, you can easily take a fresh and healthy salad to work without finding a soggy wilted mess by lunch time.

Over the long term, a reusable container is more cost effective than the resealable bags.

5-0 out of 5 stars Marinading Made Easy!
I love to marinade almost every meat I cook. I used to put my meat in a container far too large for a 2 person serving in a bowl or casserole dish and cover it in saran wrap to open my refrigerator the next day to the scent of marinade all over the place. Also that was pretty darn messy and a waste of good marinade!
Well what took me 10 hours before now takes 1 hour in this food saver. I was skeptical that the marinade wouldnt permiate the meat thoroughly enough. Boy was I wrong. My meat was never more tender in 10 hours than just 1 hour in this foodsaver container! And I dont lose any of the flavour of my marinade that happened sometimes with the cover and overnight method.
This container is mega durable, easy to open after sealing closed. I'm going to purchase more of these, they're so wonderful!

5-0 out of 5 stars must have for quick marinating!
I use this at least 4 times per week to marinate chicken, pork, steak, etc. The Foodsaver sucks all the air out of the container, drawing the marinade into the meat during the process. No need to marinate for an hour or two. A real time saver! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Probably the best funnel you can get
You think plastic... weak, melting... No
It is sturdy yet slightly flexible not to be easily breakable.
It handles warm to hot liquid real well as it is made with a some kind of high temperature plastic.
The best are these rubber lines that helps it sticking to the recipient into which you are pouring. No third hand needed nor worries about hot or messy spills.
A little mesh, provided with the set, can be inserted to strain the liquid which is really handy.
Storage of the Funnel set is nice as the funnels and the grid nest into each other.
What might have been nice? Maybe a slightly bigger handle for when we work with kids.
Still, a must have for every cook. ... Read more

This lightweight cutter divides a potato into its french-fry essence in a jiffy. One blade creates up to 49 3/8-inch fries with a single lever-push. The other creates up to 25 half-inch fries. You'll get those numbers, however, only if you precisely shape a large potato to fit the bed. The bed's size is the cutter's only drawback. Even if you cut a large potato to fit the head, the fry length is at most 3-1/2 inches. That length, however, is ideal for carrot, cucumber, and zucchini batons to assemble a vegetable tray around a bagna cauda, an Italian dipping sauce of olive oil, butter, garlic, and anchovies. And such batons get you halfway to a pretty dice for a vegetable soup. Hand wash. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Never knew we would use soo many potatoes
I used to buy a bag of potatoes and it would sit in the kitchen forever. Now, potatoes don't last at all, they have to be replenished often just like milk. Our kids love french fries. With this item and my handy dandy deep fryer even my teenager can make some yummy chili cheese fries in no time at all. There are many different ways to make fries. Most of the time they eat cheese fries with sour cream on top as a side, snack, or meal. You can melt meat on top with the cheese and it makes a great meal for a family on the go. We have used ours for two years now, if has held up so far. If by chance we experienced difficulty or defect with the product we would of course purchase another as quickly as possible. This item is used several times per week, ... so why not try it out.

5-0 out of 5 stars I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT
I just received this cutter today and I used it for dinner tonight .This cutter is great, it took no time at all to make the french fries and it couldn't have been any easier. Homemade french fries have alot more flavor and with this cutter my family will be eating alot more homemade fries.

1-0 out of 5 stars too hard tocut potatoes,
using either white or red potatoes the lever does not have enough leverage to push through and cut the fries....we bought it for use in small (49) fries... more leverage needed. We did not buy on line but at an outlet mall in San Marcos Texas..l

Note: on the ad for this it says $11.99 as soon as you say buy it comes up $12:99 which is what we paid for it in the mall.

4-0 out of 5 stars Jumbo is better
I bought this product a while ago, and it is fine, except you have to cut up the potato, etc.

I just received today, a Progressive JUMBO Potato Cutter that I saw in a catalog. Progressive now makes a cutter that is larger, and can cut the whole potato. Perfect.

Crème brûlée, a classic restaurant dessert, is simple enough to make at home with BonJour's powerful Professional Crème brûlée Torch. Other uses for the torch include browning meringue-topped desserts, melting or browning cheese on onion soup or casseroles, and blackening peppers and tomatoes for smoky salsas. This sturdy torch is made of brushed silver-tone metal with black and red accents; the stay-cool body serves as the grip while the flame is controlled with a simple thumb-activated button at the top. A removable rubberized stand allows the torch to be stored upright in a cupboard.

A safety lock prevents unintentional ignition and snaps back into place each time the ignition button is pressed. A simple slide button adjusts the length of the flame, while flame width can be altered with a sliding air-control lever; these two functions allow the user to focus the flame as tightly or as broadly as necessary. The BonJour Professional Crème brûlée Torch has a 40-milliliter fuel capacity, which allows more than 3-1/2 hours of burn time. Butane fuel is not included; it can be purchased at gourmet, hardware, or convenience stores. The torch comes with detailed instructions for fueling, igniting, and adjusting the flame. --Garland Withers ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Torch Song Trilogy
I purchased this set with some apprehension after reading one reviewer who claimed the product couldn't produce a steady flame. Honestly, I'm not sure if that reviewer was using the product improperly or just got a defective one; my experience has been quite the opposite. The unit is a cinch to fill with butane (not included with the set), reliably and easily produces a flame, and provides adjustable flame size (both length and width). I know there are more expensive kitchen torches on the market (some by this same manufacturer) but I think this one is suitable for every kitchen use. In fact, when my neighbor saw mine he wanted one for his home workshop! The included ceramic creme brulee ramekins are the right size, though they are manufactured in China, not France. Also included is a simple, basic recipe for Creme Brulee (though I have not tried it yet but instead used one of my own). Price, performance, and panache are the trilogy which make this set a winner.

Tested several torches in the store and found this one to be the best. Once I got it home it was fun learning how to use to on real deserts. Happy I picked this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Coffee/Desert Lovers delight
I got one of these as a x-mas gift a few years ago and love it! It is especially wonderful around the holidays. I like to make pies and it is great topping on all types of pies. We also drink a lot of flavored coffee and hot chocolate in the winter (its pretty cold here at night) and love to top it off with the cream. I'm not sure about the flavored syrups, but I just add some flavored coffee creamer (international delight or coffee mate) to the container and it makes it taste so good. It is such a hit at holiday parties that I have to borrow my mom's to keep up with the demand. It makes a great gift just be sure to get enough off the cartriage containers or you will run out!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for the creative cook!
I saw these a couple of years ago in a "What's Hot for Christmas" article. I have wanted one ever since and just recently bit the bullet. I wish now I would have bought my ISI Cream Whipper as soon as they became available. ISI's website has numerous recipes published using Torani flavored syrups. It's so easy to make coffees and deserts look like you had a professional prepare them that it's almost sinful! I tell people that they are the greatest little gadget you can afford to allow yourself to indulge in. Everyone that ever uses whipped cream should have one of these whippers. The taste is so much fresher and better than canned and it's so much easier and less messy than whipping in a bowl (and it won't separate like in a bowl). Now that ISI is offering the 1/2 pint size and it's acually very reasonable...my advice it get one today! You'll use it more than 3/4 of the gadgets in your kitchen that you thought you needed! And don't forget to get a variety of Torani syrups for experimenting and an extra box of chargers because you'll use it more than you think! Three of my best friends and family members are getting one for Christmas...I want to share this exciting find! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

If you're pickling and jam-making come late summer, Progressive's canning set offers five tools that will greatly simplify the process. Progressive's jar lifter has wide, contoured, vinyl-coated tongs, allowing you to get a tight grip around jars and lift them out of hot water without breaking them or burning yourself, and the plastic-coated handles keep hands cool. The magnetic lid lifter, a long plastic wand with a magnet on one end, safely extracts lids from boiling water. An extra set of vinyl-coated tongs is great for removing blanched fruits, such as tomatoes or peaches, from boiling water. The kit's plastic funnel has a small enough spout for any canning jar--and an extra-wide mouth to prevent splatter when you're pouring hot jam. The final accessory is a nonslip, vinyl-coated jar wrench. None of the items are dishwasher-safe; clean them by hand with soap and water. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

  • Hand washable only
  • Five-piece set: funnel, jar lifter, lid lifter, jar wrench, and tongs
  • Vinyl coating improves grip and prevents heat transfer

5-0 out of 5 stars Great set for the price...
I got these for my wife for Christmas 2003. She wanted to start canning. She canned a bunch of pinto beans and loved the set. It is a rather low end set but for the price and frequency of use it is worth 5 stars.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a necessity.
This was a nice set of canning tools I THOUGHT I needed. The wide-mouth jar funnel and the jar lifter are about the only items I regularly use, although the lifter is a bit akward. The magnetic lid lifter is nice but if you can use a pair of chopsticks they work just as well. Also I already had the pair of tongs in the set, and what is the jar wrench for? It's a good set to have around but with some imagination, and a working pair of hands, you can still manage to can and preserve to your hearts content without it.

5-0 out of 5 stars great value
If you need to replace your old set of tools for canning, these are great value for the price and an absolute necessity for working with hot jars and foods. I am considering giving them out as Christmas gifts to the "would-be canners" to try out next year.

5-0 out of 5 stars A canning *essential*
This is a sturdy set of canning equipment that I bought for my mother who has been canning for 40 years. She has never purchased new canning equipment in fear of displacing her loyalty to her original equipment from long ago. She LOVES this new set and calls it essential in making her goodies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better,faster & costs less also.
If you are just starting canning here is all you need to handle jars and lids. I wasted hours running around and on the phone.What I needed was not in any! stores.Here was every thing I needed at the click of a mouse.If I had ordered from the manufacturers of the canning jars it would have been weeks,cost more and didn't include the jar opener. ...

Hands don't need to touch raw meat when making hamburgers with this patty press. Scoop ground beef or low-fat ground turkey into the press, push down lightly on the handle and gently twist, then remove handled press and press ring. The patty can stay right in the "keeper" container, which then stacks and interlocks with Tupperware's large hamburger freezer set. Or, the patty can be turned out of the flexible container onto a plate, ready to grill. To make patties uniform in size, measure the meat for each scoop; a 1/4-inch gap should be left between the patty and side of keeper for expansion when frozen. All three parts--the press, ring, and keeper--can go in the dishwasher for easy cleanup. Assembled, the press measures 5-3/4 by 3-1/2 inches. It carries Tupperware's lifetime warranty against chipping, cracking, breaking, and peeling. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

  • Dishwasher-safe; keeps hands from touching raw meat

4-0 out of 5 stars I bought one for my husband
He is in charge of all the hamburger grilling around here because he makes them better than anyone else in the family. He really loves this wonderful tool. He says the meat doesn't stick at all, and he can make the burgers any thickness he wants. He hates having to get the hamburger under his fingernails, so this saves him all that trouble too.

We buy our meat in bulk, so this is a great way to freeze up individual patties too. We just stack them with a piece of waxed paper between each of the patties. I'm diabetic, so this regulates my portions very nicely too.

This is one of those little tools that you will never regret having in your kitchen because you will use it a lot. I use it on salmon patties, meat loaf patties, etc, and have even pressed some veggie/noodle combinations in it for freezing.

The greatest part is that you can put it in the dishwasher! I always prefer using the dishwasher with any item that comes in contact with raw meat.

It's a real pleaser for this Ma and Pa combination!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Size Hamburgers
I like this product. I'm able to make as thick or thin hamburgers that I want. Plus premake them and then freeze them for future use. Big plus in my household especially since I like to have a fresh (frozen) hamburger pattie to take with me to work and cook up in the toaster oven. Great little kitchen aid especially those with children, you can allow your child to assist in making the burgers without worrying if they will cut themselves or something else. Easy clean up too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I got one of these after seeing it an remembering my mother using one for years. This item works very well and I have had no problem with the design, use or cleanup. Dishwashing is fine and essential for dealing with raw meats. I usually cover a surface with something like plastic wrap, than wax paper and than make my patties. This keeps my counters from being contaminated.

I was buying premade patties for portion control and to allow me to freeze small amounts. (I can add one burger to make a meat sauce, or cook up one pattie as a pizza topping, etc) But the cost of pre-made patties is higher. This allows me to buy at bulk prices and just make my own patties. I can also make my own *meat loaf* mixes rather than buying them...which is more expensive. Or mix some turkey for low fat with some lean beef for flavor and color for a *kid-fooling* substitute.

I'm very happy with my purchase of this and if it lasts as long as my moms did, I will have it for a very long time.

5-0 out of 5 stars I am im-pressed
Nothing is better looking than a thick, juicy hamburger made from Angus beef. Nothing creates a thick hamburger patty better than this. I've tried lots of methods and this works better than anything for creating perfect, bun-sized burgers.

5-0 out of 5 stars A nice little

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product!!
I love this product! I use it all the time.

Best parts:
A- I know it's fresh, and hasn't been sitting on the shelf for who knows how long already.
B- I know what's in it (i.e. no sugar).
C- I can flavor it any way I like.
D- It's way cheaper than buying it pre-whipped.
E- I don't have to get the electric mixer dirty.

The only part that I'm not crazy about is cleaning it... but a good bottle brush and some hot soapy water take care of it nicely. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars a reliable standby
Americans, we read, are drinking and enjoying more wine. So, whether you're a newbie to the wine aisle in your favorite supermarket or a dyed in the wool oenophile who sniffs and swirls, chances are that bottle stoppers are a necessity for you.

Bottle stoppers are as varied as the wines themselves - from high end sterling to cowboy chic to kitchen gadget cute. These are user friendly and always reliable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Breakfast Helper
Who wants eggs....who wants pancakes...what a wonderful little tool to help please your family members with a choice of breakfasts. When I received this set of 4 egg/pancake rings, I couldn't wait to try it. What a handy helper. It helped create the perfect poached eggs without the mess of poaching in perfect shape and size for english muffins with sausage patties and cheese stacked. My 8 year old, didn't want eggs...so pancakes were cooked for him at the same time. What a lifesaver!! Makes Breakfast fun!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fat pancakes
I have used my rings for solo eggs and a quartet of pancakes. The eggs are great on a muffin, but they are difficult to flip over with the rings and since I like my eggs over easy, I end up pulling off the ring and having the egg run out anyway. It does start out as a perfect circle and is still greater than an abstract egg if you like order. As for the pancakes, I let my batter sit for awhile before making the pancakes and they looked like crumpets when prepared. Very tasty, light, fluffy and perfect circles. No problem removing the rings from the pancakes before flipping them.

5-0 out of 5 stars I loved it for pancakes!
Several reviews said these were not practical for pancakes, but I think they are perfect! I like mine with a little thickness, but could never get the consistency of the batter just right. If too thin, the pancakes spread out and are also thin, but with the rings I can make them as thick as I want. I also like the size, like dollar pancakes. For those who said it leaked out from underneath, it was probably because their pan was warped. I had no trouble. Just be sure they are cooked through before flipping. (I used a lower temperature so they didn't get too dark.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Forget pancakes, these are for crumpets
I love all kinds of yeast raised breads, and recently I discovered British crumpets. These are a kind of thick pancake batter raised with yeast, and cooked on one side until the top is dry. The top is covered with holes, which suck up the butter when you toast them. Crumpets can be made without rings, but they end up thin at the edges and thicker in the center - less than perfect for soaking up that butter. I readily found crumpet rings galore in UK and AU, but finally discovered that they are called 'pancake rings' here in the states. I've never needed rings for pancakes, and several other reviewers are equally mystified as to why anyone would want perfectly round pancakes.

So buy these and try one of the many crumpet recipes online.

4-0 out of 5 stars great egg rings, but don't bother using for pancakes!
These rings are the perfect size for making eggs to put on english muffins or small hamburger buns. (like the Breakfast Jack) I have not tried to make pancakes in them, because they would be really tiny and I do not have a need for perfectly round pancakes. This product consists of four separate rings that can connect to a handle. I have had my best results when I just use the rings by themselves and don't bother with the handle. The eggs still stick to the edge of the ring a little bit, so I have to tap the spatula against the ring as I am lifting it up (using a glove-style potholder. When the rings are all connected it is harder to get each egg out of the ring cleanly. Also, be aware that if your pan is a little warped, then a little bit of egg can leak from under the ring. If you just leave it, however, the little bit that leaks will cook fast and prevent more from leaking out.
Overall, I love these! I worked at Jack in the Box as a teenager and have always wanted egg rings. I gave it 4 stars just because the handle is kind of flimsy and it really is impractical to use for pancakes. ... Read more
