    Default Surprise at the Grocery

    I was at a local Pick N Save grocery store last night to pick up a few
    things. I noticed on an endcap they had a minor entourage of Revere
    Ware pots, pans and misc items on sale. Immediately I was drawn to the
    8qt stock pot. I've wanted one for awhile, and since it would match my
    set of Revere Ware copper-bottom pans at home, it'd be perfect (yeah,
    i'm metro like that).

    Anyways, it was on some blowout sale for $29.99. I thought "sheesh, $30
    is kinda steep for a single pot". And didn't get it. But I still
    wanted it, so I looked online to see if I could find it cheaper.

    Nope. The MSRP is just shy of $80. $60 is the lowest I could find it.
    So I went back and bought one. I thought about buying two and putting
    one up on eBay for $50.

    Oh well. We still have almost 3 more months of winter in Wisconsin.
    Perhaps I'll make a proper soup just yet.

    I am sooooooooooooooo jealous. I got a 16 quart Revereware stock pot
    as a "group" gift for my 40th birthday. Sweet soul that I am, I
    loaned it to an immigrant family just arrived from Russia so the
    Bubbie could make soup. (Boy, could she make soup!) Unfortunately,
    she tought it was a gift. What else could I do?

    Sigh,

    I grew up with the copper-bottom Revere pots and pans at my Mom's
    house. but when it came to making stocks and other long-cooked
    things, I found a heavier bottomed pot worked better. Now I have a 16
    quart aluminum professional pot from the restaurant supply store for
    stocks. Love 'em.

    I love my old Revereware. Too bad the new stuff isn't as good.
    Also, I can't use it on my induction burners. And the ones that
    are not totally flat anymore aren't great on flat-top ranges.
