If your cookware set does not have a black outer finish, consider putting one on yourself. This can be done quite easily and cheaply. Go to any hardware or home improvement store and pick up a can of black oven paint. Why paint them black? Adding the black coating to the outside of your pots (never on the inside ) will help your cookware heat up faster.
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?
