My Polder Oven Thermometer is an everyday necessity. Our oven is extremely fussy. It can take quite a while for the oven to heat up. This little baby tells me when my food is done and when the oven is warm enough. My casseroles have never been better!
My Calphalon non-stick pots and pans....aahh, life is good. :-) The lifetime warranty and the stay cool handles are fantastic. Graham also loves that they don't take much elbow grease to clean. I love these pots and pans. They heat evenly, my only complaint is that my cabinets aren't big enough to hold them. I need a hanging pot rack.
My saute pan...the love of my life. This is by far my favorite. It's large enough to hold everything, heats evenly and quickly, and is completely worth the price. It's so much easier than trying to cram everything into a frying pan all the time.I love my tea kettle, too. It's non-whistling, which I don't love, but I DO love it's design. It's so old school it's practically screaming, "1901! 1901!" I make tea or cocoa with it almost every night.
The whisk....yessssss. I have the smaller one on top. My Oxo whisk is fantastic! It's so easy to clean. I don't think there's a kitchen in the U.S. that doesn't have one. Why break out the huge KA Mixer for a simple job that your whisk can take care of? I love using my whisk....it makes me feel like a true chef when I whip it out and swirl together something delicious.
Need I say more? I love this thing....it's made baking a fantastic experience from start to finish. I'm not tired from my wimpy old hand mixer anymore!!! I'll be using it again soon, and I'm so excited...I keep eyeing it like I'm picking it up from a bar.
I love working in my kitchen, and this post is simply a tribute to those pieces that make my life a little easier.
