January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

I'd buy the one on the far right! It's called paiolo in Italian.

@L'explorateur: I might have done that, but it's not good for my glass-top stove.

A simple yet creative and recycle shot!

I have a dutch oven exactly like the one in the picture (abeit in much better condition) Judy! A beautiful capture Judy! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: As has been stated in other comments, I now have an enameled cast iron Dutch oven that I can use on my glass-top stove or in the oven and I really love it.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Yes,yes...there are three photos, one after the other, in your WB album that I enjoyed greatly and this is one of them! I don't know why...but all these old things give me a thrill!

27 Jan 2011 2:08pm

@Japanalia: Thank you, Gabriela ... I'm glad you enjoyed these. I can't post them all on Am3 or it would be late fall with nothing but photos from the raid! I love the old things also. :D

Iron pots and skillets are mostly a thing of the past; yet they are some of the best cookware ever conceived. My mom and grandmother (both excellent N'awlins/creole cooks) would have been lost without theirs. Mrs. VF and I had an iron skillet, which we used happily for years - until we finally entered the glass-top electric range era. It felt weird to sell it at a yard sale, but we did.

27 Jan 2011 2:10pm

@Viewfinder: Yes, I would imagine your mother and grandmother used these ... and I have gone to an enameled cast iron dutch oven, which I love ... and can use on the glass top. ;D

Mhelene from Paris, France

Superb framing and very interesting !

The pots and pans are cool but the sign is the icing on the it!!!

@Candais: ;D

Franz from Baden, Austria

they don't make 'em like this any more ... alas! heavy, but reliable cooking utensils they were! very nicely captured!

27 Jan 2011 4:24pm

@Franz: Not like this, but they do sell enamel-coated ones that work beautifully on our newer stoves.

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, Wales., United Kingdom

Dont know if you can get them with you ,but "Le Creuset" have been making cast iron cookware since 1925 and they are still going strong today,in a multitude of colours and just as popular as ever.

27 Jan 2011 6:56pm

@Jeff: Yes, the "LeCreuset" are still available. I recently bought one from Lodge, that was about 1/3 the price. ;D

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

No Teflon to get scratched on those ! Perfect utensils.

27 Jan 2011 8:35pm

@Ronnie 2¢: You've got that right, Ron!

Monterey John from Carmel, CA, United States

This is a challenge, trying to comment using my iPhone :)

Nothing more evenly distributes heat than good old iron. Good capture.

27 Jan 2011 11:39pm

@Monterey John: Thanks, John, and you're right. I purchased an enameled cast iron kettle that I can safely use on my glass-top stove or in the oven.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

I would love to have one of those.

28 Jan 2011 1:22am

@Ralph Jones: I didn't' price them, because w/a glass-top stove, I can't use them, but some were really in good shape.

Wild Mustang Photography from Carlisle, Massachusetts, United States

Wonderful composition with the light! These were the best kind of pots and pans. Cool shot!

@Wild Mustang Photography: Thanks, Pam.
