Worst cookware

The worst cookware I ever used was that glass cookware that my poor daughter was given as a gift. Everything stuck to it and I absolutely hated it. Now, I use Analon which I truly love although I wish I still had a cast iron frying pan for my fried potatoes, which I still can't make worth a hoot!

Run and get a cast iron frying pan!!!!! A person can't live without one and I'm pretty sure it's against the law in the US NOT to have one!!!! LOL. Yep, I may just have a little one but nothing cooks like cast iron. I borrowed a glass pot from my MIL only to do mustards in. I used it one other time to cook some broccoli in. They just don't "look" like anything wonderful could come out of them!! LOL - And when is the last time you walked into a professional kitchen and saw glass pots! - NEVER!!

worst kitchen utensils, etc.

You get your sweet bippie I'll get a cast iron frying pan...you talked me into it!!! I'll probably have to go 45 miles to the City to a place with kitchenware as I live in a tiny hick town with no stores and all I have are the Analon pieces I bought which are wonderful for some things but certainly don't give the same results as the old cast iron.

My daughter got rid of those glass horrors thank God. She had them foisted on her by her MIL as a gift or would never have gotten them:p

This forum is so nice I'm really hooked on it (and, where else would I get to see those great cheesy smilies)?:D :D :D :D

Cookie,
As a resident of a totally Podunk town too...you might try the HARDWARE store for the cast iron skillet. I'm sure they have that! I found the best cast iron skillet I've ever had with the campstoves and other camping/fishing gear!

Norma, you beat me to it!!! Our hardware store here has great cast iron things and at a great price. This is also where I have to buy my pressure cooker rubber gaskets! :D

:p !
Well, when ya live in PODUNK you come to know WalMart and the Hardware store TOO well! I grocery shop "across the border" in Texas. My first week here in Podunk, I spent 45 minutes in the "spices/baking aisle" of one of the tiny grocery stores, thinking I was just NOT seeing the thyme or basil! Then I realized, nope, spices here are salt, pepper, and BarBQ seasonings. I'm a Texan, I NEED my cumin, chili powder and cilantro!!!

I only have ONE thing to say about the glass (?) stove top cookware....................no, I'm not gonna say it, because this is POLITE company!!!
Suffice to say, I bought a set when it first came out, and got RID of it after the first use!

worst cookware

I don't drive and the only time I can get up to a city that has any sort of cookware is when my daughter has a neurologist's appointment (she had those three brain surgeries last year and still feels pretty sick when she drives such distances); our hardware store is about the size of my tiny apartment so they don't even have anything like that there. I'll have to do the catalog bit, just as I do most of my spices. What culture shock after Buffalo!

This town is sooooo Podunk it makes Mayberry, USA, look like a booming metropolis and about as entertaining as partying in a wet grave!:D

Cookie - now THAT'S a small town you live in. LOL. I sure hope your daughter starts feeling better. How scary that must have been. Good vibes and prayers going her way.

worst cookware

Thanks for your good wishes. Yes...this place is a real one horse town (without the horse). It was terrifying when my daughter had those awful surgeries and this forum helps me take my mind off the continual worries about her.:)
