    Peelers

    Such an inexpensive yet imortant tool. Yesterday I bought an OXO on the recommendation of Cooks Illustrated to replace my little Henkels which I somehow lost. This thing is junk, I tried to peel an English cucumber, potatos and asparagus stems and it either wouln't cut or would clog/jam. So 9...

    Berndes SignoCast handles

    I've got an 8" and 11" skillets in the Berndes SignoCast and both of them have come loose and I've had to tighten them up. I thought no big deal at first but the little one wouldn't tighten enough until I brought out m 14.4v driver from work and really torqued it on. Then the big pan started...

    Mauviel/LeCruset Dutch Oven

    Okay I'm trying to figure this one out too, whether to get a LeCruset Dutch oven, around 5-6 quarts or the Mauviel 2.0mm dutch oven/stock pot with the iron handles. This is the medium weight copper and I've found them excellent for soups etc. I prefer the heaviest 2.5mm for skillets and have one...

    Pondering Saute Pan

    I've been driving myself crazy, trying to decide if I want to get a Mauviel copper 3.2qt saute pan. I've a bunch of their sauce pans already but unsure if I'd use the saute pan enough to justify the cost and storage space. I've had several stainless saute pans and just didn't use them that...

    Saucier?/Chef's Pan?

    Just wondering, when I look at them, the so called chef's pans look just like large saucier pans – what's the difference. And chef's pans, the ones with deep rounded sides, look like a cross between a saute and a saucepan with sloped sides; I've always been intrigued by them but had one once and...

    Only 3 pots and pans

    I read an article somewhere about how few cooking items we can get by with and it got me thinking – about what is most used in my kitchen and what can I do without, if I have to. Then I read an article about a similar thing where they had asked some chef's if they were on a deserted island and...

    Emeril's pasta pots?

    On Emeril's cooking show I've seen him using pasta pots with the strainer inside and they're much narrower than most I've seen available. They're tall so they'll accomadate spaghetti but the width are just a little larger than probably my large electric element on my stove. This would also make...
