I Finally Got My Oatmeal

As for the saucepan, I went with the Cusinart Multi-Clad Pro. Apparently, only the BB&B stores in the north carry this line so I had to order it (but still used the coupon). I'll let you know when it's in and what I think.

Saucey Saucey

Overwhelmed is where I’m at. I need a saucepan so that I can make yummy things such as oatmeal and pasta. Try searching ‘stainless steel saucepan’ on and you will get more than 80 product results. More than 80!! Makes my brain hurt.

I know a few things: I’m slowly building up my cookware collection so I want a large saucepan (better to start big and follow up small if you ask me), stainless steel and would love, love, love an All Clad.

So, after doing some browsing online and at Bed, Bath and Beyond and doing some product reviews, I turned to the Cook’s Illustrated’s equipment review for some guidance. Their top choice is (of course):


All-Clad Stainless Steel 4-Quart Covered Saucepan which comes in at a whopping $194.99. But, everyone knows that if you buy All-Clad, you’ll never have to buy again.

Their best buy is:

Cuisinart® MultiClad Unlimited™ 4-Quart Saucepan which according to Cook’s Illustrated’s equipment review performs just as well as the All Clad with the only set backs being that the Cuisinart cooks faster and shows wear more quickly.

I was leaning towards the Cuisinart and after further searching, I’ve come across what is apparently Cuisinart’s answer to the prestigious All Clad: the Cuisinart® MultiClad Pro Triple-Ply Stainless 4-Quart Saucepan with Lid.

After further online review searching, pretty much everyone is pleased with the Pro Triple-Ply Stainless series and those who also have All Clad mention that it is comparable and one comment that a lot of people make is that they prefer the handles on the Cuisinart to the All Clad. Hmmm….I do have tiny hands.

Well, I’m off to BB&B for what I hope is a purchase. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Welcome Home!

Hi ya'll!

It's been a busy couple of weeks, but I'm finally moved into my new abode. I have some stories to share and some advice to seek. But first, I need to catch up on some neglected tasks at work.

In the meantime, please delight in my new welcome mat that my good friend Shelly gave me!
