Can You Recommend a Good Everyday Roasting Pan?
Q: I received Diana Henry’s Pure Simple Cooking for Christmas. Last night, I attempted Smothered Pork Chops with Mustard and Thyme and while the chops were moist and flavor great, the potatoes didn’t brown.I used a 9×13-inch Pyrex, but I am thinking a roasting or cast iron pan would have been better. What would you recommend for an everyday roasting pan?Sent by WhitneyEditor: Whitney, you definitely can’t go wrong with a big cast iron skillet.

Store Review: Macy’s Cellar
We’ll admit, a trip to Macy’s in Herald Square in New York during the holiday season is not something we’d wish on our worst enemy. It’s madness down there. However… Macy’s Cellar is a one-stop shop for housewares if you need to kill a lot of birds with one errand. And, as a salesperson once told us, “Stuff here is always on sale.

Le Creuset: Great Customer Service Experience
One thing I love about Le Creuset, apart from the good craftsmanship, beautiful colors, and durability of their products is their lifetime guarantee. I’ve never had to put that to the test until recently, when I clumsily dropped my beloved 3 1/2 quart round French oven with metal knob onto a concrete floor and one of the handles snapped off, taking a chunk of pot wall with it. Oh no!

Teapots & Le Creuset: 17 New Things from Housewares
Last week I went to the International Home & Housewares show in Chicago, where manufacturers and retailers get together in a giant extravaganza of all things made for the home. Toasters, placemats, pots, pans, knives, and vacuum cleaners were on display in miles of booths and aisles. I already showed you some new products from the show that stood out to me, but I’m revisiting it one more time with a few more finds that were interesting, instructive, or promising.

Five Favorite Mixing Bowl Sets
Mixing bowls are a necessity in every kitchen. Whether you have a set or mix-and-match pieces, you’ve got at least a few. We often see color-coordinated sets of mixing bowls, and we can’t help but stop and appreciate how beautiful they are.Pretty mixing bowls like these are also multi-use: When they are this cute, they can go from kitchen to table as serving bowls, too.

Look! Cute Measuring Cups at Anthropologie
We were wandering through the homewares department at Anthropologie when we spotted the set of measuring cups above. Then we spotted another set…and another…and another! Everywhere we turned, we saw more sets, each more adorable than the last. Take a look!In all honesty, we can’t see using these measuring cups for everyday, practical reasons. But it would make us smile to see them lined up on the windowsill above our kitchen sink.

Microwave Silicone Steamer from OrkaInternational Home and Housewares Show 2008
Microwaves and silicone – these two things and certainly the combination of both were hardly likely to win our attention at the Housewares show. We’ve predicted that home cooks are past the honeymoon phase with silicone and until recently we really only used our microwave for defrosting chicken and melting butter. But things have changed. Yesterday two illustrious kitchen figures – Mark Bittman and Harold McGee – sang the microwave’s praises.

Online Store Review: Lodge Cast Iron Cookware
Our cast iron skillet is the workhorse of our kitchen. In fact, we use it so often that it almost never makes it back into the cupboard. Lodge is definitely the number one retailer when it comes to quality cast iron cookware – with very good reason!Lodge has been making cast iron cookware for over 100 years, so it follows that they know a thing or two about making it right. Their products are solid, sturdy, and made to last.

Elizabeth’s Pepper Mill: Peugeot Paris
This is the first pepper mill I’ve ever owned. For years I avoided buying one because the nice ones—well-made, comfortable to hold, easy to crank—can be relatively pricey. Finally I gave in and purchased this while shopping at Whisk in Brooklyn. Granted, I have no comparison, but this classic model from Peugeot has been excellent.I love the traditional look of this pepper mill.

iPad: First Impressions and the Epicurious App
After months of imagining all the kitchen possibilities for the iPad, one of the first things we did when our household received its new tablet was head straight for the Epicurious app. Cue the heavenly choirs! To be sure, the iPad is not a necessity, but we must admit we’re pretty smitten.We already use laptops and smartphones in the kitchen, and the iPad combines the best of both worlds. Like the iPhone, it already has cooking-related apps with the potential for many more to come.

Dutch Oven Roundup
Dutch ovens are perhaps some of the oldest cooking tools in the world. A Dutch oven is simply a heavy metal pot with thick walls and a lid, usually cast iron. Metal pots like these have been used for over a thousand years, and for good reason. They are durable, versatile, and incredibly long-lasting. You can braise, bake and stew in a Dutch oven. For more history on Dutch ovens and cooking, check out the Dutch oven article at Wikipedia, and visit the International Dutch Oven Society.

The Coolest, Simplest Can Opener We’ve Seen
Does anyone own this kitchen gadget? It’s a can opener from Rösle, and it’s not new, but we recently used it at a friend’s house and loved it (as much as one can love a can opener). In fact, it’s so streamlined and nifty that we stared for 15 minutes, sure it was a can opener but with no idea how to use it.
