I too get the online updates for sales from chefs catalog. The thing I like about the catalogs is they are easier to navigate than the websites, easier to hold than the laptop and I can take it with me everywhere. Also I tend to like unique stuff that you can't find most places . Oh well such is the curse. I like power tools too and I have most all of those that I want.

I understand - I'm a man, too. You grab that first cup of coffee in the morning, grab a cooking catalog, and you head for your "sanctuary" ...

My problem isn't the catalogs,, it's their online "sales". I let them send me e-mail notice of all their neat "too good to pass up" sales... and once my mouse sees something, he/she goes click crazy...

Mouse just committed me to a panini grill (I just wrote about it in "Cookware and Accessories" under the panini question so I won't repeat the story here).

I need to take my mouse to "KA" Kitchenaholics Anonymous or something.. I should probably attend myself too. Seems I just can't pass up a new toy.. hopefully I'll outgrow it :)

All I do is look at the junk I already bought and 99 times out of 100, I come to my senses.

If you think ignoring a cook's catalogue is hard....try walking into the 2 stores I own and not want to bring EVERY new toy I find home to "play with"....I would but the DW would not approve.......we have 2 very well stocked kitchen areas and as hardware stores actually are starting to get some "kitchen" stores refer people to us for hard to find things.
