A Chef’s Paradise

Want to pick up cooking and avoid going out to eat for every meal? A great place to find the right supplies for the job is at estate sales. There is no telling how much skillets, pots, pans, and cooking utensils could cost if you tried to buy everything all at once. Cast iron cooking supplies, if taken care of, could last for years and years. Therefore, brands like Calphalon, All-Clad, Le Creuset, and Farberware, that are built to last, will be able to be found for lower prices at estate sales. However, when purchasing these items that have Teflon lining, make sure that there is none scraped off and they are not charred on the bottom. Cooking utensils like electric mixers can also be purchased, but be sure to make sure that it works properly and that all the pieces are still intact. Brands like Kitchen-Aid and Cuisinart are both reputable and often have a warranty if something goes haywire. A good knife is often hard to find for a good price, spending money on cheap brands of knives can be a waste. Look for brands like Wusthof and J.A. Henckels for a good sturdy knife that will probably outlive any of your other kitchen accessories. Lastly, cookbooks may be slowly going out of style as the internet because like an infinite land of recipes. Nevertheless, classic cookbooks and family recipes are not often able to be found on the internet. Also, it is always great to have a cookbook because it is often riddled with notes on certain pages and or has printed wine suggestions listed with each meal, and that can be of great assistance!
Cooking is fun, as are estate sales; mix the two and you have saved money on a relaxing and filling hobby!
