I need to know which stainless steel pan to buy please.?

— Carol Armijo


Well, I'm gonna give you two things. We have a resource today. You'll often hear me speak about a pot and pan company owned by sisters. It's called great Jones. And that's very good. But you can also go to a thrift shop because a lot of people are getting rid of their 1960. Revere where stainless steel pots or their Farberware stainless steel pots which are in incredible condition and pennies to the dollar so you might want to do that. But I think looking at the pots and pans at Great Jones, they are stainless steel they work beautifully and work very, well. You have to find pots and pans that feel comfortable to you. But definitely go to with your shop, you know, we talk about recycling reuse, etc. Etc. Taking care of the landfills going to a thrift shop as often my first place to go because usually I'll find lots of stuff I go to thrift shops to buy my dishes and such when I take photos so that it doesn't look like oh she's got her Mikasa dishware again, which you get that Plato. It was from TWA Airlines so head to a thrift shop bring a little bit of money and challenge yourself to finding really fun things. But that is always a good question. Thank you very much.
