The last cooking related item I bought online was my 7 quart Le Creuset French Oven. I got an amazing price and it arrived about 2 days after I ordered it.

From this company. I waited until it went on sale. I think with tax and shipping it came to about $120ish.

I bought some fabulous Lagostina stainless-steel cookware a while back that I haven't seen anywhere since. It's trendy and chic. I love it!

I tend not to buy on the internet simply because I'm constantly forgetting my passwords. I'm a big catalog buyer, so I thought I'd be a natural for internet. I think I bought my last set of pots and pans from the Chef's catalog via internet. I live in a tourist town, and we have several small gourmet shops. All things being equal, I'll buy from them rather than go to Chicago or use a mail order place (or internet); they know this and give me a discount because so few local people (as opposed to tourists) shop here in town. Right now I need a pasta machine, and typically, the one I want (either a Mercato or Atlas, I threw our Imperia away in a pique of frustration, which I should have done as soon as I bought it -- returning it would have cost more in shipment that the darned thing was worth), but of course I can't remember my password with Amazon. Oh, dear, me. Am I the only moron?

I buy so much that the UPS man considers us family. This month so far: Penzeys spices and bottles, Ultrex skillet, Chef's Planet oven liner, Oxo measuring cups and spoons, Forschner bread knife, Calphalon 6 piece bakeware set and probably a few other things I've forgotten.

Like GB, I bought a Le Creuset French Oven. I love it. I have used it many times since I bought it. It barely makes it back into the cupboard before I take it out again.

a Nesco roaster oven for a friend from Amazon (she does not have a computer, hard to believe) for a ridiculous price, If I see it again I'm to order 2 more for her

Claire: You're not the only forgetful one! I've solved that problem by always using the same password. On our website, passwords are optional, which is also nice...

My latest purchase is a big round grillpan from Calphalon. But I love All Clad best. We used to carry them in the store, but they're discounted all over the place now and it's very hard to compete.

Claire - I keep all my passwords in a folder right there in Express Outlook. I just made a new folder and called it Passwords and User Names -

With most places you sign up they usually send you a confirmation e-mail with your user name and password. Just drag the e-mail (from your list of e-mails) over to the folder and "drop" it in.

To REALLY make things clear you can forward the e-mail to yourself - in the subject line put Amazon password - or Discuss Cooking Username and Password.

It's the only way I can remember stuff. I try to use the same password everywhere though - but then sometimes the username is gone - so now I just keep them ALL in my folder.

I don't buy anything online. I need to check things out in person.

Too bad mud. I remember that you need new knives and I thought this auction would be perfect for you.

Hiya, choc! You are so right (and such a good memory) about the knives. Ebay intimidates me, and right now I really don't have the time to stalk a bid. Appreciate your thoughtfulness, and BTW - do you know that song that goes "Rueben Jones, you been gone too long"? Do you know the girl group who recorded it? It's been driving me crazy.
