Kitchen Equipment for Full Contact Cooking

Now, now, you should know we’re just going to ask for a link.

At the risk of feeling foolish, I need an explanation of the “Condition” choices for the placemats. What is the difference between “New” and “new”, other than the height of the first letter? Will I get a different product if I select one instead of the other?

It’s just a letter.

The color ‘Azure Shimmer’ can be found under ‘new’ - all the other colors are listed under ‘New.’

Someone just make a mistake when entering that one so the system created two different drop-down options. So, if you’re looking for Azure Shimmer, it’s not sold out, just misplaced.

The spice racks are not as advertised. Sure you can get 20 bottles in 4" of space, but what they don’t tell you is that the racks require 4" on either side to allow the racks to turn. You’re better off with a lazy susan or the step shelves.

I’ve had my eye on these Lock and Lock Containers for awhile now, but the Only thing that is holding me back from getting them, is that they’re not air or water tight. Two important features that I like in storing perishable items.

Here is a link to a previous discussion about these Lock & Lock containers. It sounds like the airtight/water tight issue is more of a matter of preference based on what you want to use it for.

I was ready to get the Marcus Samuelsson Cookware MR202-SP 2Qt Sauce Pan, until I noticed the Features/Specs didn’t state if they were 18/10 stainless steel. They didn’t state what quality the stainless steel was at all. Can we get that info please? Thanks.

It’s probably been said, but the spice rack thing is crap and not worth the plastic it’s made of. Just saying.

Good explanation. I’ll send that in to get it fixed in the morning. Sorry for the confusion.

How large is the handle on the Messermeister San Moritz 12" Salmon Slicer?

Does anyone know about the Cat Cora knives? I’m not looking for anything spectacular, but I’d like something nicer than average to get me through until I can afford the $200 Shun knife I really want.

I got the two Cat Cora knives last time on Woot. I’ve had a number of high quality knives, and these are very acceptable ones in this price range. the 8" Chefs knife is now my go-to knife. The santuko knife is one I’ll save for Xmas for someone since I already have a 6"

Not sure what one has to do with the other, but thanks for letting us know… :slight_smile:

Those Cat Cora knives are perfect for me…mostly because I’ll never win on Iron Chef America, either…

I finally found the answer to my question. This is 18/10 tri-ply. The Marcus Samuelsson line was discontinued by Regal Ware and morphed into the American Kitchen line. The AK sauce pan doesn’t have the helper handle. I bought the AK sauté pans and 3 qt Everyday Pan and love them. I am looking forward to cooking with this pan. In for one.

From what I can tell there is no way to match the placemat color names to the pictures, anyone find this information anywhere? I don’t want to put an order in for what I think is the red placemat, and have a tan one arrive!

Sorry for the late reply, but if you hover over the images with your cursor (in the sale) the color description will be highlighted and tell you which color is which.

Hope this is helpful :slight_smile:

That comment had me laughing out loud. It is true that she doesn’t win too often…

Spice rack:
The metal brackets are not for mounting, they go inside the sliding trays. They give some weight to the tray and help to prevent racking.
Your shelves need to be flat or have no more than a quarter inch lip at the front or the racks cannot be extracted. If you have 2 racks, you need to have a 4 inch spacer between them to allow the racks to swing. So with 2 racks, you need 20 inches of cabinet shelf space, that is 8 inches for the racks, 12 in for swing area.
Having the rack mounted to a 1/4 in T shaped plywood form would allow items to be stored behind the swing area and add weight to the racks to prevent tipping when a rack is slid to the front to be swung. A clip in the back of the cabinet to further prevent tipping would allow the rack to be moved to the counter top if racks were mounted on the plywood base. A lazy susie is a one hand operation to get items, this device needs two, especially if items have weight.
