"Grazing" at Goodwill again today!

Was looking something for my brother today when I spied a really, really nice-looking 12-inch skillet. Said "Green Life" on it and it was in pristine shape, save for some cooked-on splatter on the underside. Nothing a dose of Easy-Off oven cleaner couldn't solve. Three bucks and it was mine.

Looked it up and discovered what I'd brought home was a $36 piece of cookware. Gonna try it with a hefty slice of ham tonight for supper.

Great pan. Nice substantial handle with a heat-resistant pad on the underside. I'm thinking it's going to like this pan.

I'll give it another test tomorrow morning when I task it to fry some eggs.

BTW, the Easy-Off took care of the underneath side. Looks like new!

Good on ya Katie!
Green Life, is that those ceramic type pans?
Did it come with a lid?
I gotta start checking out or Goodwill!
I've been going to a local thrift shop that helps
local women and children groups.

Yes, it is a ceramic one. No lid but I have a 12-inch glass lid that fits perfectly. Win. Win.

Come on any time! I'm headed to two Goodwill stores today. Not looking for anything in particular but there's always a chance I'll happen upon some treasure.

This summer I stumbled on a Vera Wang handbag for $3. It's wonderful and I used it until a few weeks ago when I went to my fall bag.

You are a good sleuth for bargains Katie.

My most recent find was a popover pan at a thrift store. Maybe a dollar minus 40% on Tuesday senior citizen day, the only day I shop there. Practically brand new except for some stuck on dough in the bottom of the cups. Easily removed with a hot water soak, a sponge and regular dish soap!

I previously bought 2 popover pans retail. They both wound up at Dx's house because I got tired of trucking them back and forth and it seemed we mostly made popovers at her house. Found another one at a garage sale. Somehow that deposited itself in her cupboard as well. This one is Mine. I made popovers when she was here for dinner and she never blinked or asked nor probably gave it a thought about the pan itself.
