Stains on your stainless steel? It may seem like an oxymoron, but sometimes it does happen that your stainless steel kitchen utensil develops a bit of discoloration. If you have rainbow like stains on your stainless steel, unfortunately, they are permanent so you might as well make peace with them! If you have brownish stains, soak a cloth in full strength ammonia and place of stain for at least 30 minutes. Wash normally (always use ammonia in a well ventilated area only.).
I like the concept on non-stick but I keep having to buy a new pan every year or two because the coating wears off. Are there any non-stick pans out there that actually work well, are eas and are durable?
It's not always easy or convenient for me to cook outdoors, but sometimes I really crave a grilled steak. I'm thinking of buying a grill pan for indoors. Is there any one in particular you'd recommend?
I want one of those shiny black cast-iron pans without having to wait for years to achieve the finish, or for my grandmother to hand-down hers. Are there any cast-iron pans out there that have that finish already?
I'd like to cook more, but I am often just too tired and time-constrained when I return home. Do you have any suggestions for streamlining dinner preparation so I can put together a healthy, good tasting meal fast?
