Friday Favorite- Caphalon Pots and Pans
This Friday Favorite is a bit late (yes, it's Sunday) but since I worked on Friday, I was unable to post anything.
When I got engaged to my wonderful husband, I knew that I would register for many kitchen items for the wedding, hopefully amassing a cavalry of kitchen tools to aid me in the battle of what's-for-dinner throughout the years. After realizing that it was nearly impossible to plan a wedding in Michigan from Japan, I reluctantly let go of the dream of a wedding. This meant that instead of getting all the kitchen items on one day, I would have to ask for them each holiday until I had everything I needed for my kitchen. In this list of must-have items, I included Caphalon pots and pans, a brand that I had seen at my sister's house and heard her rave about. I knew that if I had these pots and pans, they would be the only ones I would ever need, which would save me not only money in the long run, but food too, since having them for so long means knowing what they're capable of which, in turn, means no burning, and [hopefully] no under cooking.
After about two years of marriage and using some pots and pans we bought at a thrift store in Japan, my sister told me that she and her husband would like to buy us the Caphalon pots and pans as a wedding gift. I guess they realized that Thomas and I weren't going to have a wedding after all, but wanted to give us something to symbolize our union.
These pots and pans are the best pots and pans that I could ask for. They cook food evenly, and I have a few stories of how the non-stick has been a wonderful feature. I left the burner on low for several hours one time, not realizing that it was still on. This crusted the sauce of whatever I was cooking to the pan. I was worried that I had ruined the pan, but when I ran the water over it, it started peeling away. All I had to do was run the sponge over it and everything came right off. Now never worry about how long the pot sits on the range, waiting to be washed. Even caramel comes off super easy after sitting in the pot for hours or a day or two. The one thing that you have to remember with the non-stick Caphalon is that you can't use any metal utensils. This really isn't a problem for me unless someone else is cooking in my kitchen besides my husband and I (which rarely happens).
Looking for a set of pots and pans that will making cooking easy and clean up even easier? Caphalon is your best bet.
As stated in previous Friday Favorites, I don't get anything from the companies of products I feature in Friday Favorites. It's just something that I love and would like to share with you.
I hope you all had a great weekend, and hopefully I can blog more this week!
