You're welcome - glad to help

So far, I haven't broken anything on it *knock on wood*. It's just so nice to cook in a beautiful kitchen with the new Calphalon cookware DH gave me for Christmas Not to mention the adorable berry-shaped Le Creuset casserole dishes he gave me, too. Another beautiful addition to the kitchen

Can't wait until I get my kitchen redone...it will still be tiny though.=o( lol I do all my prep work and stuff on a 2 1/2 square area between my stove and sink. I have decided I'm gonna go with Silestone instead of granite though.

I have to say my cooking equipment is more for use over beauty. The copper I once had simply was not worth the work it took to keep it looking nice.

Hi, again. I heard from the kitchen designer, and yes, it's St. Cecelia Dark, from Brazil. And the red spots are indeed garnet. Way cool

It's so hard to pick. My kitchen was a very dark, scary place til we re-did it last spring so everything in it is beautiful to me because it's so functional. My Calphalon cookware, my Katana knives, my stove and venthood, the red brick chimney I uncovered during the renovation. I do have a beautiful antique pressed glass punch bowl that one of my children found for me at a junk shop. It's huge and I keep it on the dining table filled with fruit so the boys can snack at will. I think that may be the thing I find most beautiful.

GotGarlic,
I have a Santa Cecilia slab on my living room (on a built in shelf/table) that looks very similar to the pic you posted. That's why I guessed it.

I would have to say my Staub and All-Clad stainless cookware. I love the shapes and design of the All-Clad cookware. I used to think the Le Creuset was gorgeous, until I saw a piece of Staub. I especially love the colors with the lighter highlights in the lettering and the bands like the Basil, Eggplant, Grenadine and Sunflower colors, and their fish, and rooster knobs. Just stunning! Almost too pretty to cook with...LOL!

I would have to throw in a vote for Staub as well; we have an oval cocotte in the pimento red, and that thing is just beautiful. I also own lots of LeCreuset, (some handed down from my grandmother, who is 92!) and now a couple of copper pieces (Mauviel, and Baumalu) that just beg to be cooked in. So I guess the cast iron and/or copper cookware are my favorites.

I would say my chrome KA mixer and my yellow and flame enameled cast iron cookware.

One of my All Clad fry pans with red and green bell pepper and red onion sauteing inside it or my saucier with some sort of sauce simmering away.

My Calphalon oval dutch oven in Cabernet red is great to look at, too.
