You can see the size of this platter compared to the spaghetti squash in the background. If I were to have a small dinner party and serve the squash in it's spaghettiness (two halves open to display nature's handiwork with this unique squash), the platter would easily hold the two halves along with a small custard cup for melted herbed butter. To the right of the platter is the utensil holder. It's holding our new silicone utensils John bought me for Channuka on sale from Williams Sonoma. He also bought me two absolutely perfect All-Clad stainless steel pans in 8 in and 12 in sizes. We'll get the 14 incher another time. We've used the smaller pan for eggs mainly, but I did make a great grilled cheese in it -- the traditional way (Dawn would be proud), with lots of butter. We're saving the first use of the larger pan for seared Tilapia. Neither one of us has tried Tilapia yet, so like the grilled salmon experiment, it should be interesting. By the way, the silicone tools are weighted well and work much better than nylon. They don't scratch the pans at all and are temperature rated for up to 450 degrees.
