The pot to beat
September 10, 2011
I started replacing my pots and pans about a year ago when I started to cook seriously. My mismatched pots with poorly fitting (or non-existing) tops which were made of plastic could not go into the oven as many recipies direct. They cooked unevenly, did not lay flat on the burner, etc., etc. Every frying pan (3) and pot (4) that I have purchased from Lions looks like quality, have tight fitting tops, all stainless, handles welded rather than screwed on, don't show scratches, don't need to be scrubbed with brillo, etc. In fact I actually enjoy washing them by hand, they look as beautiful when I am done as when they were brand new. I love them. This one I used for mashed potatoes and parsnips last night, mashed them right in the pot - no sticking.
Pros:Everything. The weight, the top, the evenness of heat, the lying flat on the burner, the ease of cleaning and the beauty of it. Also, the PRICE is much less than the "name" brands with all the quality.
