I had to share some pics from December of the new dishes and pots and pans we bought from a very very good sale in Delaware. Apparently the American distributer of Mauviel pots and pans and Emile Henry bakeware and dishes is located about 30 minutes from our house and has a warehouse sale up to 80% off every December. This was our first year we knew about it and we've had our eyes on the Mauviel copper pots with bronze handles for several years now, but the cost in stores is way out of our range. BTW, Leo and I both love to cook, so we've been researching what new pots we wanted for awhile now. The ones we had were from when we were first dating in college! So they are more than 15 years old, Eeek!
Anyway, between how desparately we needed new pots and how our everyday dishes were chipping from our granite countertops (that is a drawback), we were very happy with the very reasonable prices at this sale. We showed up at 8:30 AM and there was already a line to get in! Glad we came early and on the first day. Here's the pics of our loot!
