Which of these knives would you choose?

Several years, later, but that is too funny! Can understand her concern if it was a first or second date. I am a woman and would love to know all there is about sharpening my knives. Doesn't it seem like it's mostly men, though, that are obsessed with sharp knives and sharpening techniques?

One from left field: is there such a thing as a craft/boutique/premium Worcestershire sauce?

Malt Vinegar is made from Barley, which is a grain that contains Gluten, as does wheat and rye.

The problem with Malt Vinegar is that is contains GLUTEN, since it is made from Barley, so those wishing a gluten-free variety should stick with the American version.

Help! Commercial Calphalon Hard Anodized finish wearing off?

Hi, you may never get this, but I will give it a shot. I assume that it is still safe to use a pot after the pigment has come off. I have a 16 qt stockpot from the Commercial line that is amazing, though after many years of use, the color has come off up to about 2/3 of the way up the pot. However, you are saying that it is still hardened aluminum and that is safe to cook with? Someone had a post about whether or not Calphalon is safe to use because it is aluminum, but I can't find it. I love my Calphalon--the set is about 16 years old and I use it every day and it has held up incredibly well. I prefer it to my All-Clad; it is so thick and durable, I think you could probably run it over with a car, LOL and do more damage to the car than to the cookware, LOL!
Thanks, Joyce
