I don’t know what it is about shinny stainless steel cookware, but it makes me feel like a professional chef in my kitchen!

Investing in high-quality cookware and appropriately sized pans makes all the difference in a good dish versus a great dish!  I never believed this until I had the chance to use Le Creuset’s Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware.

True story….ask my husband how many nights we’ve sat down to dinner and I’ve had a big smile on my face telling him how much I enjoyed cooking dinner!  I’ve never been one that enjoys cooking…….baking yes, but cooking is more out of necessity for me.

Well, I’ve recently discovered having all the right tools in the kitchen, like a nice range and quality cookware can make such a HUGE difference in the whole cooking experience.  Not to mention, my food is actually coming out better……and here I just thought I wasn’t that good of a cook for all these year {wink}

It was like I had been driving a Toyota Corolla my whole life and someone suddenly handed me the keys to a Ferrari!

My new Whirlpool range has an induction cooktop, which I LOVE.  With the correct pans, my chicken crisps perfectly over the high even heat, and my rissoto is more consistent than when it was cooked with my old range. The induction burners throw off so little heat that my kitchen stays relatively cool, yet I can boil water in half the time!

Le Creuset Tri-Ply Stainless Steel cookware features a commercial grade triple-layer construction – a full aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of premium-quality stainless steel. The heat-responsive aluminum core extends up the sides of the pan to provide even heat distribution and to eliminate scorching and hot spots. A magnetized stainless steel exterior ensures compatibility with all cooktops, including induction.

All Tri-Ply Stainless Steel products are dishwasher safe and feature a precision pouring rim, which prevents spills and drips when pouring liquids directly from the pan.

Making my grandma’s fudge was like a dream this year!
