Default addendum

We went to one of the periodic food sampling events at Kowalski's today - this one featuring Valentine's Day foods. The story also carries a line of cookware from Cook's of Crocus Hill. A woman from that store was demonstrating a French product - Mauviel. I know this product mostly from their copper cookware (elegant but too pricey for us). The frying pan she was demonstrating was made of 'carbon steel' - according to her, the same composition as cast iron (note: iron not the same as steel but I didn't pursue it.) The pan she was using looked well-used but clean enough for more cooking. She was frying something like a hot cake and offered us a sample. It was just fine.

I walked over to her demo booth rather skeptical but almost bought one. Mrs Ho Ho suggested that we give our Swiss Diamond a bit more time first.

I copy in this blurb from the Mauviel website:

"The collection M'steel is made of black steel (carbon steel) that has excellent heat conduction. The M'steel fry pan collection has the same concept as a cast iron fry pan - It's what the French Mama's use instead of cast iron."
