Denmark has blessed the world with a line of non-stick cookware that will stand the test of time! While I have owned very expensive non-stick cookware in the past, none has compared to ScanPan. What makes this brand of non-stick cookware truly remarkable?
Of all the many brands on MetroKitchen, I am certain that Tim Allen of “Home Improvement” fame would be all over Vitamix blenders and food processors. His comic quest for more horse power would lead him on a crash course for an appliance like Vita-Mix. These machines have 2 plus peak horsepower and the blades spin at 240 miles per hour at the highest setting. These products are built in the USA, in Cleveland, Ohio and are built to last! There are two models to chose from, the Turbo Blend 4500 and the CIA Pro Series which is comparable to the Vita-Mix 5200 series.

Lamborghini, Maserati, Miyabi. While most will agree that they roll off the tongue easily, most would then sing the Sesame Street tune, “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things does not belong”. Well, two are Italian sports cars and recently introduced Henckels Miyabi is a line of Japanese knives. I will agree that they have some striking differences but they all are items that stand for extreme performance! Miyabi is a line of cutlery that is second to none when it comes to performance. These are the sharpest knives I’ve ever encountered and I’d venture to say you’ll feel the same way. The Miyabi 7000 series comes in 3 distinct categories: The 7000D, the 7000 Pro and the 7000MC. These knives are made in Japan under the supervision of German knife maker, Zwilling J.A. Henckels.

The Clef du Vin wine aging tool really does age wine! I was a bit skeptical (well, actually, VERY skeptical) when I saw it demonstrated at a show. It’s supposed to “age” a glass of wine by one year for every second you leave the key in the wine. I thought, “Yeah, right, like that’s going to happen”. But, stunningly, in 5 seconds the young red wine tasted like it had 5 more years of age on it!
Emile Henry Flame Top cookware is my favorite new line of cookware. I’ve always been a fan of cast iron cookware, but my new ceramic dutch oven has opened up a whole new world for me in my kitchen. My beautiful, yet highly functional blue Flame Top dutch oven is the most versatile, green-friendly cooking vessel in my pantry.
All-Clad, the most popular brand of cookware around the globe, has introduced a new line of cookware called All-Clad LTD2. This new cookware collection is based on the original LTD line, but with new additional features including new d5 technology and dishwasher safe.
This month’s Sharp Pick is the recently introduced Wusthof Panini Knife. The knife features a sharp, serrated edge that is perfect for slicing through toasted breads while protecting the delicious meat inside.

The slightly off-set handle is designed to protect knuckles and provides optimal leverage during use. Available in Classic and Classic Ikon (shown) styles, you save $10 on the retail price of in the month of October.
Recently I got news about a neighbor, young mother, who found out she has breast cancer. We have boys the same age, so it really hit home. We live in a great community, and all of us got together and decided to act fast and help. We formulated a schedule for the next two weeks to cook homemade meals for our friend after she comes home from surgery. I signed up to make her (well actually for my husband to make) penne ala vodka. Food brings comfort and at the same time we can help someone who cant take care of her family at the moment. Food and cooking brings people together in communities around the world.
It just so happens that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. My dear neighbor did not feel sick or any lumps—they found a one centimeter lump in a routine mammogram. At MetroKitchen, we sell a great product from a great brand that helps to support Breast Cancer Research. [Read more…] about Kyocera Ceramic Knife Honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Stacks and stacks of amazingly sharp knives…. Sounds like the scene for a horror flick. No, it’s just Wusthof’s amazing new U.S. headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut. MetroKitchen had a chance to share in the opening festivities. Wusthof family members from Germany, Wolfgang and Harald, were both on hand to celebrate this significant move. Connecticut Culinary Institute even made a special cake, which of course was perfectly sliced by a Wusthof Classic Chefs knife. Yummy!
