I saved up my money and waited for Macy’s to have another sale, used the extra 15% off coupon and am excited to replace my original pots and pans, with Belgique Cookware. My old set is still in very good shape. A few handles could be replaced because the black color is a bit cloudy, but what a dependable set of cookware they have been. I will pass them along as they can give another ten years of family meals to someone who might want them.
In the interim, you must know I want to look at the new set for a few more days. I have learned by reading the instructions, to not place them into the dishwasher, only use a nylon scouring pad, use only medium heat and to wash by hand, then dry them with a clean dish towel. This will protect their shine. I take the pledge to handle them with care and to cook with love. Plastic and wooden utensils only.
While I am thinking about it. Do you ever use wooden cutting boards or spoons or salad bowls? Here’s Food For Thought: After cleansing wooden items, they take three whole days to dry completely. We learned this fact in Food Safety Class. This also acts as a reminder that my Food Safety Certificate will require me to attend a two day refresher course, and to take the test so I may have my certificate up-to-date. These are usually good for a five year period. If you have any food safety questions, please leave me a shout at: Theresa@HalfHourMeals.com
