I LOVE my silicone basting brushes. They seem to apply basting liquids and marinades much easier than my bristle ones. And, as Andy says, they're far easier to clean.

Any of you brownie bakers ever see this special brownie pan? It’s designed so that ever piece has an “edge” or crusty part (unlike square pans where the middle pieces have to crusty part). Pretty cook.

Edge Brownie Pan.

Thanks for the advice on silicone basting brushes. I bought a couple of them (actually 3 because they are so cool my little guy needed one for himself). They are excellent! I've used them to brush breadsticks with butter, baste ribs, apply an egg wash and other stuff. They work perfectly and clean up in the dishwasher. Too cool!

I love kitchen gadgets too! And I don't really like to cook that much...but when I do it's nice to have the right tool. I use and sell Pampered Chef (normally catalog shows as my real job provides my living). The vegetable peeler is actually the best one I've ever used (and I've peeled lots of potatoes!). I have also used it on raw sweet potatoes and it doesn't cut too deep into the flesh. The scissors are incredible. We've used them on cutting rain gutters and then washed them up and cut veggies! Love the bamboo spoons..no shredding or staining. The stones (as per another thread) are terrific. I do make a microwave cake (and do spray the stone with Baker's Delight, etc..) in the bundt (fluted) stone in 12 minutes. My nephew who doesn't like sweets...eats the majority of those cakes. The small bar pan is absolutely fantastic for heating up left over nachos, hamburger/hotdog buns, etc... in the microwave. I have put this stuff to the test and the claims hold up for the majority of the products. I'm open to offering suggestions of how to use products you haven't used yet. I believe you shouldn't buy something and then never use it. Will be happy to answer questions or give ideas.

ya, Maria, P.C. has some very cool gadgets. If you want something let me know. I do individual orders too. There is another tool called "the corer" that cores cucumbers. You peel the cuke, cut it in half, core it with the Corer, slip in a carrot...then slice the cucumber and carrot together and you get a very neat snack. The carrot is inside the cucumber. Plus, removing the seeds of the cucumber reduces the tummy gasses. Very cool things.

Like you, I love kitchen gadgets. My DH says I buy them so that I can have a really good garage sale. I do use a lot of them, but have some that I am not even sure what they are for. I have lots of fun looking in catalogs, as some others do, and keep me away from Williiams Sonoma.
