Celebratory Pan Throwing [Jul. 17th, 2006|03:35 pm]
susan smitten

We had these crummy fake-nonstick pans.

Don especially found them distasteful.

So we ceremoniously threw them down the chute!

Meanwhile, Don has mounted our good pans this way! He wants me to mention that he ran out of copper polish, so that's why they don't look as pretty as they usually do.

This is new, too. Lids go here!

I assumed brushed finish wouldn't show fingerprints as fast, and thus wouldn't need quite as much cleaning/polishing as shiny-finish.

Lodge brand cast iron is pretty cheap: they're like $5-20 on Amazon.

If I had a kitchen here, I'd probably mail order, but even parcel post rates are expensive for a 9 pound skillet. Heh. (but probably not that expensive really). $17 for military parcel post. $5.15 if it were a book and sent mediamail rate :) $40 for airmail to uae, $30 for surface.



Someone should do the DXB-JFK-DXB run... I wonder if a cast iron skillet would be allowed airside.

I asked them if they have any middle east retailers.

Susan does that run often, but I think it's a bit hard to find a cast iron skillet in manhattan without losing your mind.

I think the new Ace Hardware in Festival City may have one. :)

Order it from Amazon, delivered to your hotel.

Mmm, festival city. I must explore, and also get in with the W people. I guess that's another reason to go via Doha, since they're putting one there too.

Gah, I guess this means I need to wear a suit, or at least shirt/tie, and bring some non-combat boots. Sigh.
