So I noticed that the set of Teflon frying pans my sister gave me, oh lets say, less than six months ago is showing much wear. You’ve seen it before. Little trails of missing Teflon in the pan. I am very good with my cookware, never use metal utensils, so there is no excuse for a pan to disintegrate so quick. Wear does the Teflon go? I hate to think about it.
My sister loves sales. I on the other hand do not get excited about sales if it is a cheap product to start with. When you buy on price, be prepared to buy twice. It’s not a deal if you have to buy it again. Sorry sis. The frying pans are 86’d from my kitchen. It’s time to place this cheap cookware in my recycling can rather than serving my meals with a sprinkling of Teflon. My mother kept, correction, keeps her cookware for years and years because it is quality. Lord, she still has her Le Creuset frying pan that has been around before I was born. Quality is priceless.
Blue Star, the makers of high performance ranges available in 190 lovely shades, has announced a brand new professional-quality cookware line that is sure to delight any chef or would be chef.
I do believe a cook was behind this line because of some of these important features.
They thought of everything!
Here is what I like about the line:
- Magnetic stainless steel exterior ideal for any cooking surface.
- Easy-grip, ergonomic, stainless steel handles stay cool during stove top cooking.
- Extra-large handles provide increased finger clearance.
- The stock pot and sauce pans feature helper handles, making it easier to transport when full.
- Limited lifetime warranty.
- Made in the USA.
- Dishwasher safe.
- Professional grade 304 stainless steel for optimal durability.
- Oven safe up to 500 Fahrenheit.
