All Clad

I invested $70 on an 8″ pan and I’m not sorry.¬†All-Clad cookware is still handcrafted in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, with American-made steel the same way it was four decades ago. I figure if it has a lifetime warranty and I use it 3-5 times a week, the per use cost is nothing. Even if I get hit by a bus tomorrow, at least I spent my last day with quality cookware.

Sur La Table baking pans

This is the nicest baking pan I’ve ever owned, maybe even the nicest I’ve ever seen. There is a substantial heft and texture to it that makes me very happy to throw out my warped crusty old one. Made of 65% recycled steel to boot!

Ball Canning

I bought a 12-pack of these Ball Jars at Cliff’s Variety for around $10. They make fine drinking glasses. The company is out of Muncie, Indiana, and you can read about the history and see a PDF of old-timey jars¬†here.
