But isn't that just the handle? You wrote, "The handle comes off for easy hand washing."

The pictures make it look like the rest is made of stainless steel. Is that not correct?

HI again, the handle that is removed is also attached to the cradle for the bottom (over the strainer) so you would still have one handle still on the Ventu. I always say wash by hand with the better cookware...maybe I am old fashion, I don't even put my pots and pans in the dishwasher (too big) and I prefer to hand wash myself. I guess every person does it that way they want, but a nice piece it may be worth saving the integrity of the whole bowl...(yes, stainless and wood).

I like the "Waffler". I am sure I would use that about twice.

Maybe, but most would use it many times a week IMO....I know I will! Can't wait to see it on shelves!

Well, it isn't dishwasher safe, I'm not interested.

Its ok, not all products for anyone...Watch for it on HSN one day or BB&B, sometimes to hold it or see it may prompt a gift idea...happy cooking!

Thumbs down Looks like it leaks and cannot be fixed

Besides, for the price? ..$50? ... I can buy a few things I really need rather than one that looks nice.
