Review: Rachael Ray 6qt Porcelain Enamel Green Saute Pan Review

rachael-ray-porcelain-enamel-saute-panWe have a real liking for Rachael Ray products. It is really good quality cookware for the money so we rate it as good value for money cookware.

The Rachael Ray 6qt Porcelain Enamel Saute Pan is a real beauty. It’s a big pan at 6 quarts so really suited to a family. It’s probably just a bit too big for for two people.

The pan is made from heavy gauge aluminum and clad in a beautiful green porcelain enamel. It does also come in the more traditional Rachael Ray orange color or if you prefer a blue. I must admit I really do like the green though.

The heavy gauge aluminum means that foods cook evenly and without hot spots.  When buying cookware always ensure that it has a layer of aluminum or copper as this will ensure that you will have better cooking results.

The handles are stainless steel but come with the classic silicone grips that we see in the Rachael Ray range of cookware. This keeps the handles cool to touch and also provides a more solid grip.

The lid is made from tempered glass which makes it easy to see how your food is cooking without having to remove the lid. This helps to keep in essential juices and prevents foods from drying it.

The saute pan is oven proof up to 400F which is excellent as you can take the pan straight from your cook top to the oven without having to transfer the contents into another pot or pan.

The only major drawback to this Rachael Ray saute pan is that it isn’t dishwasher safe so you will have to hand wash this one. Still, it does have a nonstick coating so you will find clean up to be quick and easy.

This pan is also not suitable for glass or ceramic cook tops.

Rachael Ray Lazy Spoon and Lazy Ladle Set

rachael-ray-lazy-spoon-and-lazy-ladle-setWhen I spotted the Rachael Ray 2-pc. Lazy Spoon and Ladle Set I immediately thought what a great idea.  There is no doubt about this lady, she is always looking at ways to make or improve utensils so that they help the home cook.

And now she has come up with an improvement to Jonathon’s® Lazy Spoons®.

Not only are they available in the Rachael Ray colours of blue, green and orange, but they are constructed from silicone which makes them comfortable to hold and use and the lazy spoon and lazy ladle are heat safe to 500°F, and they are dishwasher safe.

Now what is so exciting about the Rachael Ray Lazy Spoon and Lazy Ladle is the notches on the handles. So now when you are stirring soup, stew, chilli etc on the stove, you don’t have to worry about putting the spoon on the counter top, it sits right on the edge of the pot and that’s where the drips go, back into the pot not on the kitchen counter.

I have one of those spoon holders which is great and does the job but it gets washed and put away in the drawer where I forget about it.  With these great kitchen accessories, I don’t have to worry, simply pop the lazy spoon on the side of the pot and there’s no mess.

The lazy spoon and the lazy ladle set measures 16.75 inches in length and 5.5 inches in length so they are a decent size.

Rachael Ray Chicken Stock – Set of 3

rachael-ray-chicken-stockOkay all you purists out there who believe that the only way to make a good chicken stock is by preparing it from scratch, by boiling chicken carcasses with herbs and onions and straining the stock before letting cool and skimming off the fat, you might like to skip this post.

Why? Because Rachael Ray has devised chicken ‘Stock in a Box’ which has the convenience of having prepared stock in the pantry and all the essential flavor of homemade stock.

I have never been a fan of prepared, shop brought stock but this stock is produced to Rachael Ray’s specific requirements and high standards which ensures that the right blend of seasonings and vegetable are used to create great tasting stock.

For those readers who are fans of the Rachael Ray ’30 Minute Meals’ this stock is just right for those recipes.

On each container  of Rachael Ray Chicken Stock you will find suggestions on how to use the stock and a recipe by Rachael. The containers are resealable so that if you have any stock left over you can safely store it in the fridge.

The Rachael Ray Set of 3 Chicken Stock is ideal to have on hand in your pantry for convenience and great flavor, and it has a shelf life of 12 months.
