Now that we've included knives as cookware, what other kitchen utensil can we include in this discussion? Wink c.i.

Wusthof, hm, I think I'll be more apt to pass on my Henckels and buy that for myself! It's not readily available here, though.

Me too. For my style of cutting, Henckels needs considerably greater curvature of blade, though the 4 star and chef's grades don't lack for quality.

Thanks ;-) That's a great idea. When spring rolls around I was planning on checking out some of the auctions around here, so I'll be keeping my eye's open for sure :-)

You and me both. I can't wait until the spring :-) I don't make any plans in the winter because of the weather, but spring is right around the corner ;-)

Thanks again.

bakeware is essential
So don't forget the classic 9 x 11 pyrex pan
And everyone needs a 8 x8 pan for brownies,gingerbread and such

peas2k, WELCOME to A2K. Since you've just hatched here, I must go easy on ya. Bake ware requires some talent at baking. My wife doesn't bake, so we have no need for a baking pan, and we've been married for almost forty years. However, we do have some nice bakeries in our neighborhood. Wink c.i.

Started out with Revere in the 1960's added Farberware in the 80's and bought several "Innova" Castex heavy wok like frying pans in the 90's. Still have them all. Still love them all.

I looked around, and looked around and looked around again. I kept gravitating towards the high end - more what Mom would like than what's practical for her. We decided finally to give her our RevereWare when she moves out (she can't ruin it) and buy a high end set for ourselves when the time comes. She's happy, we're happy.

For the big birthday, we settled on a couple of Denby stoneware place settings with Dansk stainless cutlery. It worked out well!

Urgh all of you....Paderno, regular line, www.paderno.com, plain heavy bottemed stainless steel, been using mine over ten years now. Can go in and out of oven, don't warp or leach out dangerous toxins from crappy non-stick coatings Razz I believe they even have options for Americans, heh! Support Canada! Best cookware made here, and even have a Yuppie line!

Save. But mostly cast iron ware.

Paderno looks like just what I want - for myself, that is. I didn't recognize the name from my trips to the kitchenware shops in Winnipeg, so when I looked to see if they have an outlet here, I didn't expect to find one. Lo and behold, not only is there an outlet in Winnipeg, but Castleberry's, the gift shop that sells it, is right in my neighbourhood, no more than a 10-minute stroll away. I've been in there often, but I've never noticed cookware. Well, well, well! Very Happy
