Kitchen Utensil Party

Birthdays, anniversaries, achievements -- all reasons to celebrate, but not as good of a reason as us having kitchen utensils for sale. How often does something this wonderful occur? Grab your party hats and start throwing confetti, then start buying kitchen utensils. And please buy plenty of 'em. We've gotta make payments on our yacht.

Wow. How hard would those batter tools be to clean? Batter is hard enough to clean off a hook or paddle. Lets add another half dozen tiny crevices to clean out.

And I said this last time, but those Emile Henry pieces are worth their weight in gold. And then some. Clean amazingly, and durable, cook evenly too. Microwave and oven safe.

Not that hard? It's dishwasher-safe...

The Batter Tool has some good reviews on Amazon, it sells for $9 and change. So, unless you unlock free shipping not worth it to buy from here.

Also, not so good reviews on the mixing bowls by they are almost half price compared to Amazon.

I bought the Cuisinart casserole dish and the half-n-half cupcake pan on previous Woot's and I love them both. Definitely great to have around the kitchen for a change in the normal cooking routine.

RE: The two-toned cupcake pan - A regular spatula (The bowl-scraping kind) works just as well to separate batters while your fill cupcake cups if you absolutely must make dual-flavored cupcakes. Just sayin'...

Timing is everything.

You must have a really good dishwasher... Or not know what batter is.

I don't know what 'Batter' your talking about using a hook.. Maybe 'Dough?'. The batter I am thinking it would be use for is cake batter, or pancake batter, or even a good omelet. All those could just rinse off under hot water, and a dishwasher would indeed clean it.

The "Wootbot Says" for the half-n-half cupcake pans is classic. Fits perfect with the song melody. Someone must get paid well for writing this stuff. :-)

Does anybody have any experience with using the cast iron Cuisinart pot on an induction range? My parents just got a new stove and I want to make sure this will work! I've read anecdotal reports about some enameled cast iron not working with induction.

It would be nice if they said what model this is and what the size is in inches. Hard to tell how big it is by amount it holds. Will it hold an oven roaster chicken? A big roast? Anyone have an idea?

That's seems odd. Induction works by magnetic field and cast iron is very magnetic. If the enamel was super thick, I can see it being a problem.

The Cuisinart enameled cast iron pots are awesome.

I bought 3 of the round 7.5 qt Dutch oven pots on Woot about 3 years ago (at $40, as I recall, worthy of an epic WOOT!), and I've been waiting for them to come around again.

We love our 7.5 qt Cuisinart cast iron enamel Dutch oven pot, using it almost every day (on a gas range/oven, so no feedback re. induction stovetop). I especially like that the knob on the lid is metal, so that sucker can go into a 500F oven when I bake bread in it (many other cast iron dutch ovens - even the super expensive ones - have a plastic knob on the lid, which is usually only rated to 350-400F).

The only negative things I can say about these Cuisinart pots is that the enamel will chip if you bang it with something equally hard (like the lid smacking the side of the pot). And, we found out that (surprisingly?) the paint was permanently dulled by JetDry, the rinse agent used in dishwashers (my wife, for some reason that seemed like a good idea at the time, soaked the pot in a sink full of water with a high concentration of JetDry, and even auto polish can't restore the hazy paint back to its original glossy appearance). Oh, and the ivory/cream-colored inside of the pot will become stained (permanently) by the many things you'll cook in it, but I think that's inevitable and somewhat endearing as an indicator of its heavy use.

It's a bit hard to discern, but I'm pretty sure these 5.5 qt casserole pots are oval, not round.

The typical price on the Internet for this 5.5 qt casserole is $100, so this is a good deal, particularly with the $5 shipping (and, especially, if you maximize that shipping value by buying 2 or 3).

Sheesh - I sound like a shill for Cuisinart, but I just REALLY like their line of enameled cast iron pots!

From what the Amazon product description: 15.6 x 10.9 x 6.2 inches.

If anybody's wondering about those Kuhn Rikon knives I bought some last month. The paring knives are great. The spatula/chopping knife is no great shakes. It does what it says it will do, but I get much better and faster results for onions, garlic and herbs with a chef's knife. And you can't use it to smash garlic cloves unless you're looking for a little filet of hand in your soup.

Still, for the price, especially if you're already paying shipping today for something else, it's a good deal just for the paring knives.

I bought some of the Kuhn Rikon knives the last time they went around, and really like them (both the paring knives, at least).

Please note - the pattern is on ONE SIDE only. So, if you like things symmetrical, this may bug you.

Also, I have to keep them out way WAY out of reach of children. For some reason, the design attracts their attention. They will go to great lengths to try and get them, where they would leave an ordinary looking knife alone.

It's easy to sell stuff for less when you don't have any to sell. Those are out of stock.

Sometimes someone bakes them (often the buyer). Sometimes it's vendor supplied photos.

Cast iron is the ideal material for induction because it is completely magnetic. An enamel layer should have no effect unless it's REALLY thick, i.e. 3/4"? Those anecdotal reports may apply to enameled cast iron cookware which adds a bottom layer of some other metal, i.e. copper. That can block the electromagnetic field from reaching the iron.

Regardless, these pots should e fine since the description states, "Extreme versatility safe stovetops (including induction), ovens and broilers." Since Woot usually lifts the text directly from the manufacturer, I think you're safe.
