  • observant Nov 8, 2015

    jdouglas13 - the loaf pan was reduced to slightly over $13 when I ordered .
    PS My order shipped already it will be at my local store Tuesday !

    DO we need a "confessions" thread ?? LOL

    Target has butterball turkeys .89 lb (ad say .99) but I was just there and saw them. Also market pantry turkey .69 lb (ad says .79). Fair price for turkey considering you don't have to spend 25 or 35 dollars to get the sale price like you do at most grocery stores

    Jdouglas - if you backspace once you realize it kicked you out for going over 1000 characters, you may be able to bring it back up. I have done that successfully many times.

    That dang 1000 character limit.... just lost my whole post.

    Observant - I'm so excited about your loaf pan and think I might need to treat myself to one! :)
    Stephanie - my fave CI frying pan has an outer porcelain coating, but I would think if you are careful with how you place the pan on the stove, you should be ok??
    Ascherer - I didn't know your Daddy was a chef! How cool! Your Momma must have all kinds of awesome stuff in her kitchen. :) And I totally agree on cooking bacon in the oven. SO much easier.
    Granoftwenty - me? A hoarder of parchment and parm and all the other stuff I haven't yet disclosed? LOL ;)
    Pepper - great idea using the CI frying pan for pie! I've been craving a good chicken pot pie. It would be perfect for that.

    Senglish - I do not have a smooth cooktop so I can't advise you on that ...
    That said...if you don't want to chance scratching your cooktop... you can still use your skillet in the oven :) FYI - They bake the absolute best pies ever!!!

    jdouglas - My sheets of parchment paper are 16 x 24. They are a little a large but work great when I'm baking a pound of bacon or sausage. Daddy was a chef. I will have to try them for cookies.

    Now cast iron pans are DH favorite but I won't clean them. He has to. I know the basic principles to cleaning them but he is so picky about it that I let him do it. He has seasoned at least one on the grill.

    Senglish - we don't have a smooth cook top but my Momma does. She uses her cast iron pans all the time. Luvstoq is right. It all has to do with how you place/move the pan. Momma has a sweet cast iron pan that is perfect for a grilled cheese sandwich.

    jdouglas13 - I will get some measurements Sunday/today and check . THANKS !!

    Hum - you do not have a hoarding problem with parchment and cheese do you ?? LOL

  • observant Nov 8, 2015

    jdouglas13 - Yes I ordered the loaf pan with the pizza pan from Walmart .
    I clean my cast iron as soon a s I empty it with soap and warm water ( sometimes I need a crubbie or brush but most of the time the heat mixed with soap and water clean it very well if I can NOT clean it very soon after use I fill it with water and leave on the warm stove eye to especially when I have made gravy or eggs in it . I dry the pots and pan ( actually most of my dishes ) by hand with a dish towel that have not been dried in the dryer ( I "line dry" ALL my dishtowels and washcloths now - makes them more absorbent and I am not depositing dryer sheet residue on the dishes we eat out of ) .

    Now Pepper2 & you have me wondering about cookies too !
    I bet oatmeal cookies would taste amazing !

    SENGLISH27529, the instructions that come with smooth top stoves will tell you 'not' to use cast iron, or it can break or scratch, but-----, I 'do' use my cast iron skillet on mine and haven't scratched it yet (14 yrs.)!! Just make sure you 'never' slide it on the stove - I am very particular in setting it down gently, and taking it off the same way - works great!! My stove still looks new!
