Re: Pots & pans

We use cast iron on the glass top. I don't slam it down, and I lift thepan if I want to give it a shake but otherwise it's been fine.

I use vintage revere ware pots and pans and love them. My parents had a set so they were all I used growing up. I have found most of mine at thrift shops, but I have also found pieces on eBay as well. They are usually priced very reasonably. I won't use anything else!

I think I own a pot (slightly bigger then a sauce pot) of this brand (after I googled it to find out what you were talking about. Lol). I bought it at a thrift store I really like using it so I may have to see what ones I can find for cheap. Thank you!!

Re: Pots & pans

I LOVE LOVE to cook- There is no way I could have a minimalist 4 pan kitchen, BUT, I do believe that I've narrowed my kitchen down to the basics for us. I have

1 large cast iron pan (big enough for a family meal)
1 small cast iron skillet
1 large cast iron griddle/grill for the stove top
1 large Cuisinart SS Skillet with Lid (the lid fits the large cast iron, too).
2 small Emeril Legassi SS sauce pans
3 sizes of cheap-o SS pots (noodles, soups, rice, beans...)
2 basic cookie sheets
1 stonewear pizza peel
1 stone wear roaster (fits two chickens)
1 stone wear shallow roaster (hot dishes)


I'd like to replace the cheap-o pots for some nice enamel dutch ovens, maybe for Christmas, and I'd love to have a non-stick for making eggs in. For the life of me, I CANNOT cook eggs in my SS or cast iron skillets!

Re: Pots & pans

I buy all restaurant wear from thrift shops. It lasts FOREVER! And you can just clean it easily with a steel wool pad. It heats nice and evenly and you can make a little or alot.
