Top Ten Tips on Caring for Copper Cookware

All Clad Cop R Chef Copper Cookware SetCopper cookware can be a bit of a chore to look after but if you follow these top 10 tips it will ensure that your copper cookware stays in the best condition possible.

1. Use a mild detergent, hot water and a soft sponge or dishcloth to clean it.
2. Soak cooked-on food – don’t try and scrub it off.
3. Use a circular rotating motion when cleaning the inside of a copper pot.
4. Don’t put a hot pan into water. This can cause irreversible warping.
5. Always use a low flame for cooking as Copper and tin are very good conductors of heat.
6. Never heat an empty pan.
7. Use only wood, rubber or plastic utensils.
8. Never use metal or abrasive utensils.
9. An all over patina is fine but don’t allow your cookware to develop darkened areas which can cause hot spots.
10. Don’t use aerosol cooking sprays as they can leave a gummy residue which is very hard to remove.

Cupcake Couriers – Handy Cupcake Carriers

Cupcake CourierLike most people I can’t help but love cupcakes. They are so scrumptious. But carrying them around can be a bit of a hazard. Not that they generally last long enough to be taken anywhere (at least in my household),  but if you do need to make a batch of cupcakes for a kids party or a school function for instance then it would be nice to know that your cupcakes will arrive in one piece.

This is where the Cupcake Courier comes into play. This handy container carries up to 36 cup cakes at any one time.

It comes with 3 stackable trays, each with 12 cups and each tray can be removed. This makes clean up nice and easy but also allows room for a full size cake if required. It measures 12½” x 16″ x 11″.

The Cupcake Courier comes with a built-in handle that makes it easy to carry around. And everything is held securely in place by the four latches around the base.

The Cupcake Courier is available in a in soft blue sky and petal pink.

 

Dr Who Tardis Cookie Jar

Tardis Cookie JarIf you are a fan of Dr Who then you will love this Tardis Cookie Jar. I actually can’t quite believe that anyone would think of making a cookie jar in the shape of the Tardis but I guess you can get just about anything these days.

Dr Who is the longest running sci-fi series in the world. I know I have been watching it since I was a kid and I just love the new and updated Dr Who series with the current doctor David Tennant and also the doctor before him Christopher Eccleston.

The daleks were always my favorite villainous race. If only the doctor knew back then that he simply had to run up a set of stairs to get away from one. These days the daleks are a little more sophisticated and have the ability to get up a set of stairs and even fly around the room…but I digress.

The Tardis is in the traditional blue color and stands approximately 10″ tall with a 5½” square base.

To get to the cookies you simply remove the top of the Tardis.

This would make a great gift for any Doctor Who fan or anyone who collects Doctor Who memorabilia.

Pure Komachi by Kai 8-Inch Stainless Steel Bread Knife

Komachi Stainless Steel Bread KnifeA good bread knife can really make a difference when slicing bread. I know that I have used poor quality knives in the past and it really makes it difficult to slice up bread evenly and without squashing it. This is especially so with soft bread.

Komachi make some exceptional knives that are excellent value for money and their stainless steel bread knife is yet another that has received outstanding reviews on Amazon.

The Pure Komachi by Kai 8-Inch Stainless-Steel Bread Knife is made in Japan using high carbon stainless steel with a flourinated resin coating. It has a full tang which means the blade runs the full length of the knife – this is a sign of a quality knife.

The handle is made of a high tech ionomer resin and has been ergonomically designed so that it is comfortable to hold.

The knife comes with a lifetime warranty and is dishwasher safe.
