People frequently say, “variety is the spice of life” but there is more than spice to consider when cooking. Choosing the right stainless steel cookware for you is critical. Even when you have decided to go for the name brand and gold standard, All-Clad cookware, there are still others things to consider. All-Clad has been making fully-clad stainless steel cookware for more than 20 years. As the manufacturer continues to expand it’s cookware lines a frequently asked question is what’s the difference between All-Clad d3 vs. d5?
When it comes to kitchen knives, a few are absolutely essential for meal preparation. This guide will help you find the right knives and cutlery for your kitchen.
While there are plenty of different types of kitchen knives for different uses, the most important ones are a chef’s or cook’s knife, a paring knife, a carving or slicing knife, and a bread knife. Also, these aren’t technically knives, but a pair of quality kitchen shears and sharpening steel are both equally essential kitchen tools that are worth considering.
As the holidays draw near all the cooking that’s about to happen in your kitchen is top of mind. Lots of loved ones will be gathered to feast upon the tasty delights you prepare for them. While it may be a labor of love for you, it never hurts to double check to be sure you have everything you need to ensure all goes as planned.
For me, a list is essential. Let’s see:
It’s the time of year…when SO many thoughts turn to FOOD! Amazingly, Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away. Are you ready? You may also be prepared to upgrade your kitchen with a high-quality and reusable roasting pan. Here are a few questions that can help you find the right roaster for the right size of turkey:
A Vitamix blender is more than just an average mixer. Vitamix machines are renowned as the world’s most versatile and durable blenders. What sets them apart from the competition?
First, Vitamix blenders are capable of preparing anything from frozen dessert to hot soup. When it comes to processing ingredients, they can chop, blend, cream, puree, pulverize and more! The blade used in each Vitamix machine is made from hardened stainless steel, so they’re long-lasting and durable. Thanks to these super sharp blades and their powerful motors, they can make whole foods into liquids and blend every ingredient while retaining all of the nutrients.
It is that time of year again. The time of year where Thanksgiving and Christmas are upon us. We here at MetroKitchen have had a shipment of a new line of cookware just in time for the holidays. Lagostina Martellata cookware is beautiful. I was lucky enough to try the Langostina 6 qt. Pasta Pentola and the Langostina 8 inch fry pan.
The Lagostina Martellata 8in. Skillet is the perfect size for one person or for a small side dish for the family. I used this pan to saute some vegetables, and they came out very well. This pan would also make a lovely gift for anyone. I also know that my boyfriend has used this to even make grilled cheese and it wasn’t too hard to clean. This line is to be hand washed only. I would never wash either of these in the dishwasher except for the pasta pentola insert.
The pasta pentola pot is the perfect size for someone like me. This is my favorite out of the two. I have boiled pasta and potatoes in this pot. It is so comfortable and convenient to just lift the insert out to strain the pasta and vegetables. No need to dirty another strainer after boiling veggies or pasta. Just lift, and you are done.
While it is recommended to hand wash the copper pot but the insert is 100% safe to put in the dishwasher.
Lagostina Martella is compatible with gas, electric, halogen, and ceramic cooking surfaces. Not induction compatible. It also comes with a lifetime warranty from Lagostina with regular use and proper care. Perfect for Thanksgiving and great for Christmas gifts! Also, perfect to have on the stove during Thanksgiving giving the kitchen a gorgeous look.
