What have you purchased recently off the internet. Food wise . Or pots , pans . Etc.

I’d wanted one of these for a while now, as I think they look great. However, even a discounted $240 is just too much:

So thank you ebay, for sourcing a bnib example for less than $70. Yay!

I haven’t used it yet but will report back. That sounds like a good idea though for the grill.
I find there is always something to be scraped off on my cast irons that won’t come off with a scrub brush and water alone, so hoping this will solve that.

Chain mail scrubber works great so far on cast iron. It gets all the solid bits without removing the oils you want.

Good to know. Thanks for the follow up.

I have recently purchased famous Indian food items like chicken biryani, red chicken and raita. It was really amazing. I had a great time.

We do not really consider a phone call to our favourite wineries in Italia, as ordering online, however, we had ordered one of our favourite Prosecco Brands via telephone. The distributors pass through Barcelona and deliver to us as we know the owners of the wineries very well.

And the same for our Pasta vendors (wholesalers).

We do not order online with unknowns and never Amazon.

Natural Catch canned tuna, which I first bought via a Facebook ad. It’s pricey but great, straight from the can. It’s slices of tuna steak, in a blend of olive oil and vegetable broth. They sent an email offering a discount, so I reordered.

And now that summer is ending, I’ll soon place my annual dried Blenheim apricot order from Apricotking.com.

I ordered this skillet from the maker’s website…of course I slipped out of my smoking jacket first. It arrived Sept 4th. Online orders are immensely convenient, but some users understandably find it confusing or complicated.

Agreed; phone orders certain aren’t an online order.

Oh lordy . Yippee. Must have been the wine . In the last hour .

This looks like it’s got a nonstick coating on it. I would love to hear from you in a while about how well it is lasting. I need nonstick coated pans in my kitchen. I just can’t with the stainless steel or cast iron only. But I keep buying duds that last for 5 or 6 months and then the coating wears off, even though I am careful to not use metal utensils on them. The most recent were a 3 pack (diff sizes) of coated Tramontina at Costco. I bought it twice, mostly to replace the largest pan which I most often use. And now I’ll be soon tossing the second of these and just left with 4 of the smaller less useful sizes.


Just bought this vegan chicken salt from Savory Spice. I cook a lot of chicken so I thought I’d give it a whirl. It would probably be good on tater tots and various roasted vegetables as well. Anyone tried this one or another brand?

I believe in using the right tool for the job and nonstick is an essential tool for me. That particular one is an All Clad12” D5. I also have their D5 nonstick in a 9 and 10.5 omelette. Excellent pans in my opinion.

If you’re looking for a good nonstick you might check into the Anolon brand. I found them to be an excellent choice.


I bought these (something close, they weren’t quite this much) 6 years ago and the coating is still perfect. I’m careful not to use the on fully high heat or with metal utensils.



Thanks to a post on another food site, I scored with 29-pounds of Ranch Gordo beans at 60% off (so about $2.40 per pound) due to a going-out-of-business sale:

I also sent a package of RG beans, plus assorted sauces and spices, to family (plus ordered a box for myself, but no photo of those items) as a result of that sale.


Update - I love this stuff! So far I’ve used it on roasted chicken and vegetables, baked potatoes, and popcorn. It’s now my go-to seasoning blend.

if you want a good non-stick pan, by far the best I’ve used that have truly lasted are Scanpan cookware (Danish brand). They are not inexpensive pans, but they are the one brand that I’ve had truly last more than even a 2-3 years. I have one sautee pan that’s been working well for me for almost 10 years, and it’s still good from a non-stick perspective. It also (surprisingly) sears and browns food better than other non-stick pans I’ve used.

I bought more crystal and some Misen steak knives online. All arrived intact and happy with the purchases.

I lost my discounted source for my favorite high quality flavored olive oil due to Covid so I’ve switched to Colavita brand garlic-infused via Amazon. I’m telling myself that garlic is such a strong flavor that the quality difference in the underlying oil isn’t that critical. So far it’s been working just fine. It doesn’t hurt that the price is around 30% of what the good stuff used to cost me. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Yes, I have quite a few scan pans that are 5-10 years old and agree with you. My only complaint is that a couple of them have developed wobbly handles.

Really? Bummer. I’ve been lucky – my pan is still holding strong! I also have two pots and those are doing great too – no jiggly-ness yet. fingers crossed
