The Cuisinart slow cooker makes it easy to prepare your meals early and let them cook all day.

I've had my Cuisinart slow cooker for a little over a year now, and I have to say it's super convenient. Mostly, it's just a matter of throwing all the ingredients into the pot early in the day, turning it on on the low setting, and letting it simmer slowly all day. At dinnertime, just serve and eat.… Read more »

Rachael Ray Stoneware

I gave the Rachael Ray Lasagne Lover pan and Bubble and Brown casserole to my daughter as a gift. As it turns out, I really should have given them to her husband, who does more of the cooking.

Nevertheless, these two stoneware pieces are seeing a lot of use at their house and at other social gatherings.

The bright red color is fun and festive.

The handles on both pans are large enough to allow you to get a good strong hold on them, even while wearing oven mitts or using pot holders.… Read more »

2-Quart Saucier by Calphalon

My husband and I both love sauces and gravies of all types. From your average garden-variety beef or chicken gravy to cream gravies, hollandaise sauce and bearnaise sauce... Well, you just can't go wrong with a good sauce. And I wanted a good saucier. Sauciers are great for sauces and gravies because the entire inside is rounded, so there are no edges or corners that your whisk can't reach.

I had a 1-quart Emeril brand saucier, which is a perfectly good little saucier, but the keyword there is little.… Read more »

All Lasagna Pans Are Wrong…. Or Is It Just Me?

I've been making lasagna more often of late.... My friends and family love my lasagna — and a big pan of lasagna makes it so easy to feed a crowd. When I make lasagna, I generally make two pans; I cook one right away for eating, and I stick the other in the freezer for unexpected company or spontaneous parties.

I've never been thrilled, though, with my lasagna pans. I have a metal roaster that I use, and a slightly smaller glass casserole dish.… Read more »

All-Clad Stainless Steel 14-Piece Cookware Set

My new All-Clad stainless steel cookware set is by far the best cookware I've ever owned, bar none. It cooks evenly and cleans up easily, and the 14-piece set includes pretty near all the pots and pans I'll ever need. Two frying pans (one of them is gigantic!), two saute pans (one of them is gigantic!), two sauce pans, a stock pot, and a chef's pan. Plus lids.

I've always made do with inexpensive cookware from Wal-Mart or Target, but now that I've used my All-Clad stainless, I'll never go back to that cheap stuff.… Read more »

Emeril Stainless Steel 1-Quart Saucier

My Emerilware 1-quart saucier was inexpensive, but works as well as the high-end brands.

My Emerilware 1-quart saucier was inexpensive, but works as well as the high-end brands.

This little one-quart Emerilware saucier is a good product for the price. It's a budget saucier, yes, but it's a very good quality budget saucier. This little saucier works just fine for sauces, soups, and such.

It has slightly thinner sides than the more expensive All-Clad Stainless, but it has a thick bottom with an aluminum and copper bonded base for good heat distribution.… Read more »
