You're in luck, folks! The wildly popular Copper Chef pan is getting an upgrade, it's 60% larger! The pan is still square shaped but is so much deeper ... deep enough to fit nine steaks or even 200 meatballs! It pretty much takes the place of SIX pans. You can bake, fry, boil, saute, and more. We loved meeting Chef Eric Theiss, Copper Chef's very own chef who even wrote a cookbook with over 150 recipes you can make with the Copper Chef pan! The pan comes with a fry basket, steam plate, and portable cooktop at NO extra charge. What a deal! Visit CopperChefXL.com to learn more.

The Tiger induction heat rice cooker uses the most advanced heating technology available in any household appliance to make healthy meals lightning fast! Tiger's innovative cooking plate allows you to cook two foods at once without mixing flavors. So neat!

They made oatmeal with cranberries, almonds vanilla, and cinnamon in the rice cooker ... YUM! Click here to learn more about Tiger rice cookers!
