For February, Laurie brings you a selection of marvelous tools for the gourmet in all of us. As winter’s chill descends upon us, we can cook a delicious warm meal with these selections.
SCANPAN CS+ Skillet elevates nonstick cooking to new heights. By using Stratanium+, Scanpan’s commercial-grade nonstick surface, they have created a durable, almost indestructible nonstick pan with nice weight and a micro-textured surface which allows food to be seared and then easily removed. I tested this pan out on my breaded chicken with amazing results. I also slowly sautéed onions with great success.
NEW METRO MULTI PURPOSE COOKING AND STEAMING BASKET is a fabulous way to steam artichokes, corn, asparagus, and other veggies with ease. The basket fits most 8-quart and up size stock pots and has half-inch long feet to protect ingredients from burning. I like the adjustable divider which sections the food. This great item is perfect for the kitchen, on the barbecue, or even at the beach. The cooker comes with a 10-year guarantee and is dishwasher safe.
MOBI PAPER TOWEL HOLDER is a suction-cup-based paper towel holder which keeps the towels in place no matter how messy your hands might be. To engage the suction base, simply turn the knob clock-wise and to release, turn counter clockwise. The suction works so well that the Mobi Paper Towel Holder can even attach to a wall, freeing up valuable kitchen counter space. The base works on most surfaces including tile, stone, stainless steel and other smooth surfaces. It is easy to clean with the swipe of a cloth.
