My cookware love affair is with an All-Clad pan that had been burned over and over again in the test kitchen and finally was discarded about 8 years ago. I took it home because I was single and had nothing All-Clad. So even burned up, it was a prize. I cleaned it 1000 times until it was semi-shiny. Since then, it has been my #1 go-to pan for almost everything. I love this pan because it is so well made that it went to the brink of destruction and came back semi-shiny and completely fantastic. The burned-up spatula, not so lucky. It’s finally been replaced with a mesh grill skillet. Now we really can cook the whole meal ON THE GRILL!
All this leads me to ask… what is YOUR cookware love affair?
