Thank you for that totally useless post. Be happy knowing your stupidity will live in cyberspace forever.

Really? You're going to take umbrage at mean and inflammatory comments? I knew neither that you were so sensitive nor that you had a monopoly in that regard.

I am having a similar problem with my turkey fryer. The peanut oil just wont come off the sides, just like a sap stuck inside the pot. Going to toss it and get a replacement.

My 8 quart stainless tall sauce pan has died.

I gave up last night.
I threw it away.
Now I need a new sauce pot.:(

So I was washing a huge (12qt) SS pot that I use for cooking pasta and after rinsing it out, I flipped it over to rinse the outside and I jammed my forearm right into a knife I had used to slice tomatoes that was in the strainer... I mean I jammed it hard too (damn pot is heavy). And I immediately thought of the conversation we had here awhile back about letting knives dry business end up or down. I have now changed my position and believe those sharp pointy devices should ALWAYS be business end DOWN! I dont care if they rust, I will go out and buy another GD set if they do!
Oh no! Is it bad enough to require stitches?

I would strongly recommend getting a Le Creuset enamel-coated cast iron. They work awesome and last forever and clean up very easily. I find them sometimes for around half-price at TJ Maxx/Marshall's. I also see the Cuisinart version which doesn't look to be too bad of a substitute, and it's about 30-40% cheaper.
Yeah I've gotten le creuset pan cheap at Marshall's before, but I liked the lightweightness of this one.
my grieving is nearly done.

Can you get it back?

Get some dishwasher detergent. Pour it n teh bottom, fill with a little water, no more than 2 inches. Simmer. Scrape teh bottom occasionally. You want to get at least a line of stainless showing through. Keep scarping and keep simmering.

My husband does this all the time with spaghetti sauce and my Revere ware still comes clean eventually

You are a complete Asw.
Go apologize and act like a normal person for once in your life.

Don'tforge to mention what those things weigh, empty, much less filled with food. They are enamel covered cast iron

Probably, but it was a very slim blade, not like a butcher knife. Packed it with neosporin (sp) and a butterfly bandage. Besides the knife was just cleaned.

Hey sam! If you want, wish gangrene or tetanus on me, I dont mind.

The pot I was cleaning was just about as heavy as my dutch oven It has like a 3/8 base of solid stainless.

ok, I was wrong. My dutch oven is MUCH heavier. Not twice as much, but easily 1/3 more.

They are heavy, Guess the gym helps with that. But even so are really great for short ribs, chili, etc. especially in the oven. I found the Chantel brand at TJ or Marshalls for only about $30. They are rated as good as La Creuset by America's Test Kitchen.

FWIW, the security systems on my office computer and on my new computer at home frequently close down the internet when I am on Topix and not on other sites. I assume it is something malicious from one of the ads or scripts that run in the ads. At first I thought it was just the office security, but since it happens at home now, I am guessing it is Topix.

Matilda might have some insight whether it is a Java issue
