Anyone know size of Jamie mortar and pestle?

I was looking at 2 cup 7" and 3 cup 8" and could not decide on the size. It will be for at home and not at work and thought Jamiehad the perfect size.

So in the market for a granite mortar and pestle and wondering what size Jamie Oliver uses. I find his is a good size and would be great.

new all-clad copper core anyone?

It is the copper chef. Complete copper on outside and stainless inside. I know all clad is a good brand and the copper core is the only ones with that handle. It is just different enough from the new handles on the other lines.

We have the mc2 line I believe and copper with stainless linnings. The copper is quicker to react compared to the other line we use. We use French plaques for the most part but also have gass burners.

new all-clad copper core anyone?

I am a professional and I am asking for home. I currently use calphalon one at home and at work we use all clad. I can't stand the handles of what we have at work. I do like the handles on the copper core and wife likes copper so we both win. And we do use copper for sauce pots at work.
BTW. I work at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas.

Sorry. Only internet connection I currently have. I have to be carefully of typos as it seems it will not let me edit the posts.

Cleaning Calphalon

I would try breeders friend. It is what calphalon recommends now for their cookware.

Well I am wondering what everyone thinks of these. They re did the handles and feel much better than they did. I think I can accept these now. The handles are a bit different than the new handles of the other lines.

what do you think of calphalon one annodizes for 112.00

I don't look at them as nonstic so I don't think it will be an issue. I also don't wash pots in the dishwasher and use tongs, wooden spoons, and coated whisks.

BTW these are not the non stick version. I did pick up 2 of the calphalon one nonstick skills to go with the annodized set.

No this is their top line that came out about 6 years ago. It replaced the professional line and was replaced by the unison line. The big discount line is the calphalon contemporary and simply calphalon line. I will give them a try as It was about a 400 to 500 discount on them.

Well I am always on the look out for good.cookware. I picked up a 10 piece set of the infused anodized aluminum ( not non stick) for 112.00 after tax at my local bb&b the other day. I have yet to use them but love the handles. The handles are the only thing keeping me from the All-clad ltd2 set. What say you on these.

New Creuset Color at Williams-Sonoma

I don't care for that much, however, I do really like the ocean color.
