@Felton10 What are you doing to your pans that they only last 3 years? Maybe you should spring for those pans I see on late night TV that have a lifetime warranty: Granitestone. They’re on sale @ walmart for $10 a pan.
@Felton10@Kyser_Soze The cast iron skillet we use daily is from the 1880’s,and once seasoned is nonstick and rinses clean. There are few things you can still buy that will last a lifetime, but iron cookware is one of them.
@Kyser_Soze My frying pans get almost daily use as I have to cook a fried egg for my parrot every morning. I get the ones that have a cooper finish inside and they are great at the beginning and degrade over time. Maybe I don’t prepare them properly prior to their first use.
@Felton10 Maybe I’m using different math, but if each pan lasts 3 years wouldn’t that last until you’re 109? If you mean each “set” red & black then wouldn’t it only last until your 79? Seems like it’s either going to be a lot longer or a lot shorter than you think.
@unksol Well maybe-just like I choose to grill him a chicken leg (not nightly-do a bunch at one time). Except tonight he is eating lamp chops-he throws the chicken leg out of the bowl when I give him a lamp chop-I didn’t raise a stupid bird. BTW-he is almost 23 years old. Got him when he was 10 weeks old and I don’t keep him in the cage-free to come in and out of it as he chooses.
@unksol Yeh-lots of pics-if I knew how to post them here would share some or if you feeling sending me your e-mail address via whisper can send you some. He is an African Grey Parrot-the smartest one you can buy regardless of cost, but I think ours is lazy, stubborn or has a learning disability.
There have been several pet sharing photo threads. I think I’ve only seen one parrot back on woot. Up to you if you want to show off your friend to the world. Somewhere on the internet my cat probably lives forever in a woot monkey cap and cape but I’ve never been able to Google him
Wait, did your write up suggest that people paint non-stick skillets? Are you just setting people up for failure? Having a viable career as a skillet painter is hard enough, but non-stick? Come on man, that’s just harsh.
@00 OK, just now, same thing. I read "“Cuisinart Set of 12 Non-Stick Skillets.” My wife responded the same way, leaving out the profanity. & I responded “that’s why I laughed”. However, if somehow we were still up at Midnight when this sale started in the easter time zone, she might have said “why would anyone need 12 fucking skillets?”
@Fej Dominoes. Extreme Frisbee. Beach shovel. Snow shoes. Dog food bowls. Putting out really big candles. clanging them together to wake up the family. Pan band. Canoe paddle. Killing zombies. Paint pallet. Russian nesting pans. Spanking.
@ponagathos I’d be in for that. One set of skillets would be ideal, but I’m a bachelor and don’t need a dozen to remind myself that I have no one to cook for but me. Sadz, not sadz. I need a dozen skillets as bad as I need a 5-gallon barrel of mustard when I shop at the wholesale clubs.
Q: Why can’t I buy more than x?
A: Because jerks will come in and buy up everything before you even get here and try to sell it to you for more on eBay. We want to sell to actual people, not to other stores.
Well, that seems to have gone right out the window, huh?
@zacks@RiotDemon It’s also the best way to make cornbread. Cook some bacon in a skillet (usually cast iron). Consume the bacon. Use the grease as part of the cornbread batter. Pour batter into the bacon-greased skillet. Put the skillet in the oven.
@adwaller I once worked on a boat (tall ship) where we were docked next to a huge, expensive, fancy yacht. The crew on that boat threw their dishes overboard after they’d eat. When they left we went diving and pulled up several net fulls of nice dishes, silverware, etc.
@adwaller I’ve heard such things as well.
I once bought a pack of underwear and went ahead and started wearing them without washing them first. As it turns out, that was a bad choice, and one I have not since repeated.
I’m tempted to individually gift wrap all of these and then give them to random people on leap day and pretend as though it’s a common thing to give people cheap cookware on leap day. Not quite a funny enough joke for a hundred bucks though.
I actually need a couple non-stick pans and would consider getting this and sharing/donating the excess (and there is a LOT of excess here). Except I need pans that work on an induction cooktop and “aluminum core” won’t cut it. . .
I love omelettes and do cook often for family (Filipinos love to cook and cook for our big extended family). I would love to buy this and distribute among the family. When we DO get together, everyone brings their skillets/induction burners for some serious brunch
I almost bit. Almost. However, it isn’t induction capable and the fact when you google the model number this is seemingly the only place on the internet these have made an appearance makes me too skeptical to jump.
Of course I was planning on splitting/gifting. Who needs 12 skillets?
