PostPosted: Sun Dec 16, 2012 8:13 pm    Post subject: Favorite pan - rondeau Reply with quote

Years ago when I first wanted to learn about cooking, I lived in New York City and so took the advice of New York Times columnists and visited Bridge Kitchenware to purchase some basic pans. There I was told that if I could buy only one piece, then it should be a rondeau. I'd never heard of a rondeau and it seemed big to be the one go-to piece of cookware, but I decided to listen to the expert and bought the pan.

He was right.

The rondeau is the one because it's so versatile--on the stove or in the oven, for sauteeing, frying, simmering, braising, stewing, boiling, or pretty much anything a Dutch oven, casserole, large frying pan, or stock pot can do. Plus, with its size, cooking in batches is rarely required.

But mostly it makes me happy to cook with it.

Gotta be either my 10" cast iron pan or my stock pot. The cast iron probably wins just because I use it more often.

Definitely my cast iron skillet. There's no better way to make hash browns or corn bread.

My favorite is the stock pot. I like to take the bones leftover from cooked chicken or beef and make a good rich broth. It's so good for stews and has lots of nutrition, too.

My favorite right now is my 12" cast iron skillet. The flavors that stay in the skillet and season the new food are amazing. I've been cooking a lot of steaks on the stove-top, so it is perfect.

My favorite is my old 11 inch Farberware Millenium skillet. It has been a workhorse in my kitchen for over 20 years. Using metal utensils has not been a problem, and the nonstick coating hasn't given any sign of starting to flake off.

I have fairly cheap pots and pans. I finally used my big stockpot to make stock from the remains of the thanksgiving turkey though, which turned out really well, so it can be the one.

My favorite pot is a Lodge enameled cast iron dutch oven. This time of year, I am making stews and soups, and I can simply put everything together an put it in the oven to cook away as I am doing other things during the weekend. I will have enough left over to freeze for dinners during the week.

My favorite pan by far is my old cast iron frying pan. I does pretty much anything.

My saute pan, I guess. It certainly gets the most work.

My current favorite pan is my 8-inch nonstick saute pan, in which I make the world's most perfect scrambled eggs every morning. My new favorite pan is any of the ones in this beautiful set that you are giving away : )

My 11" non-stick saute pan is certainly the one that gets the most use - there are a number of one-pan meals that I make in that pan. I think I'd starve without that pan! Smile

My favorite pan is my 8" nonstick skillet. I use it nearly every day to make omelets and scrambled eggs.
