For once I was well prepared in the kitchen. Or so I thought. The potluck was Friday night and it was only Wednesday morning. Plenty of time to start the preparation today, cook it tomorrow, and have it ready for Friday. All the cookware was clean and ready; the knives were sharp. As I started chopping up the vegetables, I realized there was a problem: I did not have even one food storage container with a lid that matched!
Has this ever happened to you? Okay, you don't have to confess to me. But I am going to offer a solution just in case you ever run into a similar problem: One-stop Internet shopping for all kitchen essentials.
Determined that I would never get caught short again, I researched kitchen equipment and found websites that deliver a full range of affordable cookware. Whether you need a basic set of storage containers or a full set of cast iron cookware, you can find it at online merchants that cater to home cooks.
Food storage containers
With all the recent concern about chemicals in plastics, it's nice to know there are alternatives. Glasslock is a tempered glass that is made into durable, safe, airtight, and watertight containers. You can take these non-toxic food containers right from the freezer to the microwave. Like plastic containers, glasslock containers come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
Cast iron cookware
Cooking in cast iron is a tradition. There's nothing quite like the heft of a cast iron frying pan. Some of the new ones even come with non-stick surfaces. Properly seasoned, cast iron cookware will last for generations.
Stainless steel cookware
Stainless steel is a healthy alternative to aluminum cookware. Online merchants offer stainless steel pots and pans with or without nonstick coatings. You also have the choice of glass or metal lids.
The use of clay cookery goes back centuries. Health-conscious cooks have revived interest in this traditional art. Clay cookware makes it easy to create gourmet meals without constant attention. You can even bake bread in clay loaf pans. Because cooking in clay is unique, it's a good idea to get a clay pot cookbook along with your cookware.
Clay isn't only for cookware. Pottery batter bowls, canisters, mixing bowls, cookie jars, pitchers, and serving pieces come in a variety of attractive colors and shapes.
If you're wondering where to put your new pots and pans, head for the pot rack department. Wrought iron pot racks come in different colors (black, blue, red, green) and styles. You can find ones that hang and others that mount on the wall.
Healthy food the easy way
So many people have stopped cooking because it takes too much time. You hear about the consequences: families that don't eat meals together, poor nutrition, and obesity. Online kitchen supply retailers make it easy to cook healthy and delicious food. You can find all your supplies online at reasonable prices. Plus, quality cookware designed for the modern household provides many options for easy cooking.
