Best Food Warmer,
our most popular,
really inexpensive,

Our favorite knife - we use
it 85% of the time. Cheap
knifes should be illegal.

one in my pocket now.

Great occasional use,

with lid, priced right.

Caterer's use real Bases

Amazon has all the
different flavors.

This disposable chafer
is ugly, but it works
great, especially back
in the kitchen.

THE best caterer's cookbook
ever, for serious party food.
Written for devoted cooks
there's nothing better.

can stir 350^ oil with
this spatula. We use
ours everyday.
