Cuisinart: Best Investment of the Year!

A while back I posted a surprise find while checking out a relatively new store called "Home Goods". It was a high-sided 5.5 Qt. Saute Pan (with helper handle) and glass lid, for $10.00. Although I promised only look-don't-buy, I am happy I didn't take my own advice.

 This is the best large pan I have ever owned and cleans up like new, thanks to the old stand-by cleaner known as "Bar Keepers Friend" which I had not be able to find here, until this store opened. No matter what I cook in this pan, not only does the food turn out well, but cleanup is a breeze. The pan looks as new as the day it came home with me. (The picture shown is the same pan with a steel lid rather than the glass vented one that I have.)

Last night I prepared a recipe of curry pork chops with apricots and onions. The meal was delicious, chops tender, and the pan cleaned up as usual. Tumeric is usually a killer and stains everything easily. Not so this time. Just thought an update was in order. I can't rave enough about this pan...or maybe I just did. Sorry.

And so it goes.


  1. I take it you like this pan. ha!

  2. @Mark: pathetic, no? I have no life and little things like this thrill me no end. What can I say?

  3. I've been thinking about something similar to this by the same manufacturerin a 3.5 qt casserole (already have a big saute pan and Dutch oven). Good to know that it performs well and now I know to look for it at Home Goods.

    Thanks for the tips.

    PS @Mark - this is Batterie de Cuisine porn. On your blog you admit that you do not cook, so you apparently do not share this orientation. Do not feel ashamed. Apparently some of us were born this way. ;-)
