1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    aluminum PERFEX salt and pepper mills from France. Other mills grind smoother and finer but if you are like me and like a course cut pepper or salt, then this is the one for you.

    I have these mills as well and second your points.

    Only thing I have that I would consider nice is flatware and severeal sets of plates. I kind of getinto moods where I just want to buy one thing and in this case it was plate sets.

    Rest of my kitchen is BedBathand Beyond crap. Have not reached baller status yet. Give me a few more years dammit!

    We have a couple different Peugeot s/p mills (that have a number of adjustments) - does this go more coarse?

    I think the ALL CLAD stainless pots and pans have been one of my best long-term purchases for the kitchen. I highly recommend them. Look for the special pricing on starter sets, then watch for sales and promotions on new or special pieces. If you keep an eye out for them you can get good deals over time.

    Keep in mind too promotions that are thrown in with $ amount purchases or registry purchases. From All-Clas we received 2 free au gratin pans and a dutch oven.

    yes, but I've found that warming in the oven produces superior results.

    Fair enough -- and I admire your patience! [​IMG]

    I rarely use a microwave. They are mostly a waste of space but occasionally nice to have. I could definitely live without one. I use them for things like defrosting a lb of ground beef on the rare occasion I use frozen ground beef (for things like making tacos) from the freezer. These days I tend not to store stuff like that. I just buy it when I need it, as I don't eat it that often, so I use a microwave even less than in the past. I'd say I use it less than once per month.

    I always wanted to have a small built in microwave in my bathroom. To warm towels. For shaving purposes.
