But purely for safety reasons you understand.
I have been cooking for years with some Sambonet stainless steel saucepans given to me by my Mother. They are teriffic. She bought a huge set in the early 1970 s. Unfortunately the detachable handles have not past the test of time, unlike the saucepans themselves, which are in excellent condition.
I was cooking pasta in one the other day, which has a particularly dodgy handle, and as it wobbled its way full of hot water to the colander, I realised that I just couldn't use them around Mr S. Far too dangerous.
So, off to the DJ's sale (sorry "Half Yearly Clearance") to see what I could see. And behold I found something - at an extremely good price of course, with a 25 year guarantee and dishwasher safe!
I'm quite excited really. I love cooking and have never had my own pans - and never quite so many either!
I would still like to use the Sambonet pans and have emailed the company to see whether replacement handles can be obtained. I hope so, because besides being good pans, they have sentimental value.
