Stainless Steel Salvation

May 3rd, 2015 at 10:03 pm

Wow what a great choice it was going with stainless steel cookware! I am so in love with it I could quit my job and just cook all day long =) I have not used every single pot or pan yet, but that will come in time. The slow cooker is probably my current favorite since I tend to throw everything in before I go to bed and the food is done by morning. I know I can have it cook while I am at work, but somehow it freaks me out to not be here just in case. I also have not used any oil while cooking and nothing sticks!

I actually thought I ruined the rice cooker because after using it, I washed it and then noticed a strange rainbow colored stain all over the inside. Apparently this is common with stainless steel and more likely to happen when cooking starches. Harmless, but still annoying. A little web searching indicates I can clean it with vinegar or Barkeeper’s Friend.

As I continue to shift from constant dining out to meal planning and cooking at home I expect my food budget to shrink. So far the savings are minimal, but I am inspired to keep at it =)

    I'm afraid to make use of my slow cooker for the same reason (plus I have 3 animals and don't necessarily trust one of the dogs to not knock it off the counter. It had never occurred to me to use it at night, but I'm definitely going to start!!

    Well technically I bought an Instant Pot which is a pressure cooker/slow cooker/rice cooker/and a zillion other things I have not tried to use yet lol. It does have a stainless steel insert and I bought it because it can be used as a slow cooker. You can read more about it at the link above, but I purchased mine on amazon.
