I really didn't cook much before we got married, so the non-stick pots proved to be perfect for me. I burned A LOT of food, my friends...a lot of food. I loved my Calphalon. It kept me from ruining a many of meals and in turn, I treated it with the utmost care. I used the special rubber utensils. I didn't put it in the dishwasher. I never used an abrasive sponge on its sensitive surfaces. I treated it the way a pot would want to be treated.
But then, four years later, my Calphalon turned on me.
The Teflon started coming off my pots...
And into my food...
I was eating Teflon flakes.
And feeding my husband Teflon flakes.
And now, we've both started having these weird eye spasms.
Do you think that's related?
So for Christmas, I asked for new cookware and look what my parents gave me!
This is my new gorgeous shiny stainless steel cookware. It's Cuisinart's Contour Stainless Steel line.
I love it!
"Contour" because it's all curvy.
All the pots have bulbous bottoms... just like me.
We're kindred spirits.
I'm so excited about cooking with stainless steel.
I feel like a foodie.
(I'm sure that will pass when I use them to cook Hamburger Helper.)
And as if this cookware set wasn't enough, David gave me the crowning jewel to my stainless collection...
Behold...my 5 quart saute [read: frying] pan. It's as heavy as lead and is DOUBLE the size of my former Teflon-tainted pan.
My man gave me a frying pan.
I couldn't be happier.
