When using a Pressure canner, cloth pot holders tend to get wet and heat gets through to your hands when lifting pot. Most cloth pot holders are too large and have a tendency to hit the pressure regulator causing it to release stem towards the hands. Not too cool!

My 40 year old hot water bath porcelain pot I used for large quantities of sauce was chipped and rusted through. I replaced it with this $70 stainless 16 quart pot. Why purchase a $250 pot if you know how to cook and keep track of the heat under the ingredients? It fits well on the large electric burner element so it distributes the heat evenly. It was easy to clean after hours of simmering and stirring.

I gave up on other touted non stick pans. I found I was buying a new one every two years.
Recently I purchased a Swiss Diamond breakfast & crepe pan and a low sided square grill to fry my eggplant in.
WOW. It is a new experience - truly the best non stick pans I have used in 40 years!

Swiss Diamond Shallow Square Grill Pan

I was frying my eggplant in a 11" grill pan (name brand) which allowed spill over onto the stove. My wife also had problems with food prep in the same pan.
My first use with the Swiss Diamond Shallow Square Grill Pan was a joy. No spill over. The amazing discovery was that the pan allowed a lower temperature to accomplish my results. An energy saving was realized. Also an even, quick frying resulted.
Although the price seemed high - it is worth it in that it provides a secure, safe way to quickly fry coated foods.

I put off purchasing this pan for years and stuck with an old Revere ware pan for my omelette cooking. Yes, the word was stuck! My omelette would stick to the bowed center of the old pan. I am pleased with how easy it is to made my omelette now.
