So let's have one about the gear!
I've been getting by with some cheap pots and pans, as well as an inexpensive set of knives. I'm making do with an average (though decent) gas range, too.
I had been thinking about upgrading to better pots and pans and knives.
Then, today, I found that I might be buying a house ( and might put down earnest money today or Monday) that needs a kitchen refurb.
So, what's good? What works for you?
In storage, I have a nice set of Calphalon pro cookware. This is the anodized aluminum stuff without the non-stick coating. I'm not a fan of non-stick coatings.
I'm wondering about a lot of stuff.
Should I go with an induction cooktop? Stay with gas?
Maybe sell off the Calphalon and pick up copper/stainless pieces?
Advice would be welcome, but let's have a conversation about cooking methods and the gear. Cooking outside over an open flame is a possibility, too, as is building an oven for bread and pizza.
Let's have at it! What do you use and what do you recommend? Everything is on the table!
