Hate the job of de-veining shrimp and always forget to ask your fishmonger to do it for you? Here’s a Yay or Nay for you to think about – The Shrimp Butler.
Supposedly with a quick motion it de-veins the shrimp for you, leaving you to decide what to do with the shell and tail. I saw this profiled on Fine Living this weekend and my curiosity was piqued.
So, what say you – Yay or Nay?
It was finally hung when my dad visited and I’ve got it outfitted with the pots and pans in my cabinet. He made sure it was super stable so I don’t have to worry about Shadow getting bopped in the head.
Just to be safe, I figured I’d behave and only put one Le Creuset skillet on there and the copper pot along with the much lighter skillets, various ladles and spatulas. Also, for a bit of decoration, I also put some copper ornaments that I bought from Williams Sonoma for the holidays.
It’s functional and gorgeous.
Well – let’s rephrase – Le Creuset – how you tempt us so.
Did y’all see that they added YET another color line to their offerings – DIJON. Now, last time I visited SLT, they were discontinuing Chestnut. I know Williams Sonoma added a darker blue shade and I do like the color of the Dijon however, I’m still a Caribbean gal. For those that want a burst of sunshine in your kitchen, check it out here.
I’ve been looking for a fondue set lately as I’ve been wanting to have a fondue soiree.
I’ve been fondling this Le Creuset Fondue Pot for a while now. I think the time has come to investigate the Le Creuset outlet as well to see if they have one that’s at a lower price. It’s sturdy, well made and I swear by Le Creuset’s products. The price makes it quite the investment for an occasional piece, but a piece that will be used for many years.
A more wallet friendly alternative is the Cuisinart Electric Fondue pot. Dishwasher friendly, generously sized and non-stick. It handles everything from cheese to chocolate to oil. Again, a pot made for multi-tasking with a temperature control.
Now, when it comes to dessert, what about this Chocolate Fondue set? Y’all know I really am a sucker for pretty copper. Yes, I think this will be on my “hmmm.. perhaps I need to investigate further” list.
Finally, a more reasonable priced Copper Fondue Pot that looks a bit more “multi-tasking”.
