to change her mind!.
OK, so a few weeks ago? (I have a lousy sense of time lately) I told you that I had this beautiful set of Calphalon Stainless Steel Cookware that has been hanging in my kitchen for more than three years going unused because it's a pain in the you know what to use them because you have to be so careful not to burn or scratch them, they "should" be hand washed. No Im not into washing dishes, I did it almost all my life. When we moved into our home and got a dishwasher I kind of went on strike from that although I will still wash from time to time.
Yeah, like every morning I hand wash the dog bowls.. but I digress.
My idea was that I would wash these all up, put them away and hang the pots and pans up here that I use everyday. They are easy to use, can go in the dishwasher and much more handier to get at hanging up here than constantly reaching down into the cabinet searching for what I want. So then it looked like this..
After reading an article about the dangers of using non stick coated pots and pans I decided well, I DO have a really nice set of stainless steel and I SHOULD learn how to use them so as not to destroy them. After all, we paid good money for them and it would'nt be SUCH a hardship to have to actually 'hand wash' them, after all again, we paid good money and the health benefits are worth it sooooo, out they came and today we are back to....
And yes, I've been slowly learning how to be patient when cooking as not to burn them. I am learning to use plastic utensils instead of metal with them and yes I've also learned that if I soak the pot or pan I've used right after cooking, cleaning them up? Really isn't all that hard after all. Success!
What kind of cookware do you use?
