For years I’ve used my grandmothers cookie sheets, pots, certain glassware and a many other items. When you think about it, these items are 50 plus years old. I believe they have stood the test of time. Some of my mothers utensils, while old, are still the best implements I use in my kitchen because I cannot find a comprable replacement.
William Sonoma has contracted out to USA Pans to create their gold tone bakeware. I really like it. It’s heavy and believe at some point I’ll have grand children who will bicker over my bakeware.
While making bread today, I couldn’t determine what an 8.5 x 4.5 bread pan would be. Do you measure it by the top or the bottom. The answer was by the bottom. That’s a 1 pound pan – FYI.
