LOL. How many people would actually use that often enough to justify the price?

It would be great for making coffin-shaped sheet cakes. LOL.

Hey, if I could afford to spend almost $1000 bucks on a pan, I could probably go out to a top notch bakery and have them make a cake any way I wanted it!  I'm a gadget freak, and probably would have been tempted at 95% off, but not at full price.

They have more goodies in the store. I picked up the large All-Clad stainless 4 qt. braiser the other day for $99.99 in perfect condition. Was $100 off because there was no box. The box is NOT worth $100...LOL! I'm selling my new 14" AC frypan. Way too large as this is almost the same size and easier to fit in a small sink.

I think this braiser can also replace the AC 3 qt. saute pan, and the 12" AC frypan. What do you think? Can really use your advice. I also have a 12" frypan and 5 qt. saute in the Calphalon Commercial nonstick, so I think I'm good without them.

Trying vainly to pare down my cookware collection ;-).

I spent some time studying the zucchini corer on sale for only $4.99.  Does everyone else core zucchini?  It made no sense to me.

Of course (Ha!), after I peel my grapes. Do they have a grape peeler? :)

What on earth is there to core? That's silly.

But hey, they're made in Italy, not China. I wonder if they're produced exclusively for import? (snort)

It occurred to me that maybe someone at WS found them on the shelves and didn't know what they were, so made up a likely story!

I don't believe in unitaskers. No room for them! Except, of course, the Whirly-Pop.

I have TWO sizes of meatball makers, but I really do use them because I make albondigas and other types of meatballs a lot and I cannot get them to come out the same size unless I use it. I also use it for drop cookies, it works better for me than a portion scoop, but of course, I have 3 of those lol.


But I have to admit that my melon baller collects dust. It wastes too much melon :) 


It's about time to put about half of my kitchen junk up on Ebay. Especially that stupid chocolate shaver that doesn't work at all. That one was 'highly recommended' to me by a Whole Paycheck employee. It just makes teensy chips, it's useless.


I had 12 good sized drawers in my last kitchen. Now I'm down to 6 small ones and I have 4 crocks on the counters and still can't get it all in there.

We've talked about this before...

Store some things in other rooms. I've got stuff in the basement, the dining room, etc. Only the stuf you use all the time needs to be in the prime drawer space.

If you mean "dishers" when you say you have two meatball makers-I've got 4 sizes. I use them often, but almost never for ice cream.

Shoes...I'll bet Tracy has shoes under her bed.


You are shameless and relentless in your quest to see that everyone has as many cookware and food related items as is possible. I find that admirable! Soldier on, Marie Louise. ( I'm serious, too.)

:-) Good cooks deserve the only the best tools, and beautiful dishes that enhance their food. And we are ALL good cooks.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

"But I have to admit that my melon baller collects dust. It wastes too much melon :)"


You're probably using it open side up, it's meant to be used with the round side facing and you push down, not scoop up.  It really doesn't waste that much.

I don't recall the last time I used it to make actual melon balls. But it's great for scooping out cores and whatnot.

I can't remember the last time I used a melon baller for its intended purpose, but agree that it's great for using to core pears, apples, etc.

Such a strange name for a core cutter, eh?

I did a melon the other day, and the scrapings from the bottom make a nice snack or a smoothie. Still looks nicer than cubes.

Tee hee.  Reminds me of a phone call I received from a very frustrated  friend years ago.  She was preparing a brunch, her first foray at entertaining, and was practically in tears over the shape of the melon balls for the fruit salad.  "How do you get the d**n things to come out round?"  She had been scooping instead of pushing, and the melon balls were coming out with flat tops.

You know what-I've had one for probably 15 or 20 years and I never knew that is how they were supposed to be used. It is not like they come w/ instructions!

Of course, I can think of the last time I wanted a melon ball... Like others, I use them to core apples, pears, etc.
