Cookware Review: Calphalon One NonStick Covered Chefs Casserole

calphalon-one-nonstick-chefs-casserole-reviewOur latest review is for the Calphalon One NonStick Covered Chefs Casserole. I think I have said on numerous occasions how much I like the Calphalon One Nonstick line of products so it’s no surprise then that we decided to review yet another piece of cookware from this range.

This casserole is a beautiful piece of cookware with an elegant look and sleek lines. This pot is perfect for soups or stews and since it is ovenproof it makes it easy to move from stovetop to oven.

But what I love most about the One Nonstick range is the effortless clean up.  I don’t have a dishwasher so I look for nonstick that cleans up easily and the pots and pans in this range are brilliant in this respect. All I do is place the pot or pan in a sink of warm soapy water and it takes a few wipes with the wash cloth and the pan is clean.

Grow Fresh Herbs Indoors

grow-herbs-indoorsThere is really nothing nicer than having fresh herbs on hand to add to your cooking. I have little pots of herbs standing on my window sill. I like to have fresh parsley, sage, thyme, dill on hand.

The system I have is similar to Emily’s hydroponic system in that the plants sit in a it’s own planter which is filled with a growing medium in a nutrient rich solution. A pump ensures that the nutrient solution circulates around the plant.Your plants absorb food and water as they need it. You simply have to pour in a little of the nutrient and water each week and that’s it.

The system is not restricted to growing herbs, you can also grow flowers and vegetables. I have used my system for a number of years with great success.

Emily’s hydroponic system includes everything you need to get you started.

So not only do you have an excellent source of fresh herbs on hand, the system is easy to use.

Cookware Review: Emile Henry Flame Top Covered Casserole

emile-henry-flame-top-casseroleThis weeks cookware review is for the Emile Henry Flame Top Covered Casserole.  This is our first ceramic review but we couldn’t resist this versatile little dish that is both attractive and practical.

This casserole has everything – it is dishwasher safe, microwave safe, oven safe and broiler safe. But not only that, you can also store foods in it in the fridge or freezer. It is also attractive enough to take it straight to the table as a serving dish.

It comes in three colors including green (as shown), red and black.

Cookware Review – Calphalon Tri Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Review

calphalon-everyday-panOur latest review is for the Calphalon 12-in. Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Everyday Pan .

We can see why this is called an ‘everyday’ pan because it has such a multitude of uses.

It also looks good with its satin finish interior and could easily be transferred from stovetop to table as an elegant serving dish.

But most importantly you should be assured of good cooking results with this pan. The aluminum core ensures even heating and quick responses to temperature changes.
