New Dishes

Did I blog about my dishes? *glances down the blog* Nope, cool, I can babble away then. *grins*

Kevin and I ordered a new, professional quality, set of cookware. Before you choke on pricing, its part of this deal with our food delivery service and well, our food bill actually went down. I don't understand this version of finances, but since it ended up being money I was already spending, and less of it, AND I got the cool pots & pans, then I'm happy!

Two big boxes arrived on Thursday. We basically had time to drag them inside and we had to run out for family haircut night. After we got the kids in bed that night, we unpacked them and looked at all of them.

They have GREAT heft. They are copper core pans, with two layers of stainless steel and a copper core sandwiched in between. They are amazingly heavy, and feel almost like cast iron with the weight. So they also have fantastic heat distribution. And there are so many types, which is what I was excited about. Two steamers, a pasta insert, a HUGE skillet with high sides. Three non-stick saute pans, plus a deep fry pan. Many stock pots and sauce pans, and a baking pan which is perfect for lasagna.

So far I've only managed to use one of the sauce pans. And its the same one Kev used last night, so we haven't exactly gotten to give it all a good try. *pouts* I have to make homemade sauce in the huge skillet and pasta with the insert and then toss it all together for that last minute of cooking... mm... I'm gonna have so much fun!

I just washed the sauce pan I used for dinner. NOTHING stuck to it. *happy little sighs* It was a breeze to clean, which just thrills me. I'm really happy to have this stuff. I love cooking so much, and its always better with good equipment.

I'm jealous. Are they any particular brand?

Unfortunately, since they come from our food distributor, they rebrand them with their own name. *sighs* All I know is that this particular set is Italian made. I'd recognize them if I saw them.

And I used one of the non-stick skillets today and the burnt cheese (fat free, which just gets really nasty when it gets all burnt and stuck on) just came off without hardly trying. Woohoo!
