When I started the business I didn't think I would like the stones, but after using the Large Round Stone...I LOVE the Stones!! Gotta have the scrapers, too. And the garlic press, the reason I started my business!!! Oh, and I've got to mention the Ultimate Slice & Grate...LOVE IT!!
Ultimate Slice and Grate... I take it everywhere! My husband and I camp alot, and my tool turn-about and Ultimate Slice and Grate always go with me!
I use it most for cheese, and especially potatoes! I love making fried potatoes, and I mix it up using the adjustable blade and the julienne blade. The Julienne blade cooks them faster, and easier to cook a bunch of them for a crowd. I also like the julienne blade when camping for easy "dicing" of onions. Just cut off one tip, and julienne the onion, and although not perfect, does a pretty good job of cutting onions when the food chopper's not handy.
For those of you who camp, have you ever made omelets in a ziplock bag in boiling water over the fire? I went to a director's "Kitchen Show Live" in our area (a bunch of them rotate to have a kitchen show so we can see others' shows) and hers was a "breakfast for dinner" theme. She did this omelet thing which was so cool! She used the big covered stockpot and put the eggs with any extra ingredients (like veggies chopped with the chopper or sliced with the US&G) right in the bag. She clamped it closed with a Twixit Clip and boiled it for I think 12 minutes or something. You can fit up to four bags in the boiling water. It was so cool! She said she used it when she camps with her family all the time. Neat idea for a theme show!
The omlets in the bag is definitly easier to clean up, plus you can even do the prep work before you leave your home, i did it once when we went on a camping trip it turns out way yummy just make sure there is pplenty of water in the pot we had smaller pots and one of the bags melted oops
It's so hard to choose. I really love the classic round stone and use it all the time but the food chopper and utility knife are fantastic too! The prep bowls have just arrived in the UK new season's product box and I can see that they are going to be invaluable.
