Rachael Ray Kitchen Products

I’ve been collecting different Rachael Ray cookware and tools for a couple years. I think she puts a lot of thought into the pieces she produces. My favorite is the oval non-stick pasta pot. I swear my calphalon pot with insert takes 15 minutes for the water to bubble and when I’m hungry there is nothing I hate more than a pot that won’t boil. This RR pot is thin which allows the water to be bubbly in 5 minutes. I also like that the pot top has a little pour spout so you can easily drain the water without having to use a colander. Smart design.

When it comes to the tools I like them all. They feel like they are manufactured with quality materials. Mike wanted to get the tong set because he likes to use them when browning meat in a pan. With silicone covered tongs you don’t have to worry about scratching your cookware. I like the nylon spoons because they sit right on the pot/pan. I am notorious for dropping utensils on the floor while cooking. These allow our wood floors and counter tops to stay a little cleaner.

Thanks to CSN’s cookware.com for sending me the 2-Piece Tong Set & 2-Piece Nylon Turner Set.


Gilroy Outlets

Mike hates going to the Gilroy outlets. About once a year I can convince him to go with me. Last Sunday (9/7/08) was that lucky day. Usually I have about 5 clothing stores that I like to check out and then we leave. This time we got sidetracked at the Le Creuset and Calphalon kitchen stores. I don’t know when they opened but I’m so glad they did. Mike instantly fell in love with these two stores. The prices were amazing! They had discounts on top of discounts. We must have caught the tail end of the Labor day sales. For example Mike purchased a cast iron grill skillet at Le Creuset for $49.99 (Outlet price $92.93). Then we picked up a pasta insert for our Calphalon stock pot for $37.50 (original MSRP $74/Outlet price $62.50). If you’re in need of some pots and pans you have to head over to the outlets, you may want to call ahead to make sure they are having a sale.

Note: Since these are outlets some items could have minor imperfections so inspect your goods before purchase.
