-- Please discuss your kitchen hardware/tools/cooking utensils etc...

Hi Guys.

So in this thread I'd be interested in the following:

- newer tools that you use that are not as common

- common utensils that you have in the kitchen that are staples for your cooking.

- Old family treasure passed down to you - such as a special knife or something useful like that.

- A few more items you may consider discussing - Cutting-boards, knives (again), presses, spatula's, maybe pancake turners/spatula's.

- I'm okay with even going as far as spices in your spice-rack.



Lately I don't have a bunch to brag about - I did recently drop about $350 at Burlington Coat Factory (of all places) on cookware (I had nothing decent since the divorce) - they had a lot of unique things, one of my sautee skillets is ceramics and has the best handle for flipping pasta's (or whatever) - another thing I had discovered there was a really nice bacon press. I will get the brand-name a little later on this weekend.

I will add photo's over the weekend, hopefully.


I wanted the thread to drop tonight though, so please share anything that's cool, special or especially 'useful' for your throwing down in the kitchen.


Thanks guys.

Look forward to hearing about and/or seeing your gear.

So Bob Dole should hold off on the "What's your favorite paper towel in the kitchen?" thread?

Oh and my very cheap food processor might be my most useful all around implement. From making pizza dough to hummus to to falafel to shredding Brussels, I use it constantly.

Plus their Fried Catfish platter looked nice. Nice big fillet, good looking slaw.

I still need some things - that's one - I'd like to get a crock pot for Great Northerns and Chuck Roast (in the winter months)

I still need several items - I will revisit cooking again - once time free's up - I truly think I could enjoy it again - versus it feeling like a chore.

& as a side-note - I've been having a craving for a nice platter of farm raised catfish w/ slaw and hush puppies. I like the ones that are grain fed and smaller cuts.

The best I ever had was at some place in Tupelo Mississippi (of all places, ha)

I use Anolon for my non stick pans (14 inch skillet, 12 inch covered saute pan, 8 inch skillet and covered saute pan, various sauce pans).

All Clad is what I use for stainless skillets and my roasting pan.

I've got a couple of different copper bottom saucepans and several cast irons pots and pans.

They all get frequent use, with the exception of a cast iron dutch oven that sees only occasional use.

Huh, my cast iron dutch oven never even leaves my stove top.

But then, I make a lot of popcorn in it besides the usual searing beef and making chili.

I need to go ahead and bite the bullet on a cast iron skillet and maybe a couple of sizes of those Calphalon skillets.

My ceramic is cool - but it only works well w/ certain textures - it's not real versatile, surprisingly.

Bob Dole's band was the first one to play there. Bob Dole hosts Challenge Entertainment live trivia there on Monday nights now.

Band thing is meh... The guitar player joined another band and refuses to practice right. Bob Dole still gets to sit in with other bands a couple of times a month. Not too many guys beating a wooden box, so it's a novelty.

I use cast a non-cast iron dutch, and I also have a pair of seasoned Imusa calderos, so that really limits the need for my cast iron dutch oven.

I am thinking of adding one of these

http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-Pro-Logi...ds=Aebleskiver

to my cast iron collection.
