I’ve always been casual about my cookware… I think Harold McGee says you shouldn’t stress out over your tools…
Anyway the other day in Good Will I saw a 10" All Clad skillet for $4.99. A bit scratched on the bottom but otherwise in perfect condition, so I had an All Clad for $6 with tax & rounding up.
OMG. What have I been missing? I made for the first time in my life perfect creamy scrambled eggs. I just made a batch of crepes - the sides were a bit of a problem, but the surface was perfect…tonight I will try boneless chicken breasts.
Anyway, I have two cast iron items. One is an 8" with 2" sides, the other circular 10" flat. I will keep the first for cornbread, biscuits, etc. But what do I need the 10" flat pan for? The All Clad is superior in every way. I have a small kitchen and detest clutter. If I don’t need something, I get rid of it.
