Riedel Veritas Cabernet Sauvignon 2 Glass Set

No Comments 25 Sep 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Riedel Wine Glasses

riedel-veritas-cabernet-sauvignon-glass-set-of-2-0The Veritas series of wine glasses are a break through in technology of machine blown leaded crystal. These glasses are taller, lighter and finer than Riedel’s other series and is still dishwasher safe.
When you see the term leaded crystal it is not as if you are getting lead into your system such as eating paint chips but rather lead oxide is added in quantities of 10 to 30% to the glass mixture which makes the glass more brilliant and gives it clarity plus it makes the mixture easier to melt for the glass blowing. There has been questions raised about health problems when liquids are stored in lead crystal but there have been no cases in modern times. So when drinking from these Riedel Wine Glasses and other wine glasses in general, you should not have to worry about it harming you other than you getting dead drunk from over indulging.

If you live alone like myself a smaller pan does come in handy such as making a hot sandwich, sauteing small portions or even frying a single piece of meat.
This pan has a copper exterior that conducts heat twice as efficent as aluminum and 10 times better than stainless steel, with a thin layer of nonreactive stainless steel for the interior cooking surface. The copper makes up 90% of the sandwiched material of the pan and is completed with stunning bronze handles which make a nice table presentation. Mauviel Cookware also has a number of larger round pans for serving more people and making dishes such as paella or even doing a DiGiono Pizzas

Mac Knife Japanese Series Fish Slicer 10 1/4″

No Comments 21 Sep 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Mac Knife

mac-knife-japanese-series-fish-slicer-10-14-inch-0-300x193This is a right handy knife for the left-handed Sushi Chef. This is a single beveled blade made primarily for slicing raw fish into fine thin pieces and works well with ham, poultry and beef.
The blade is made from an alloyed stainless steel that has been sub-zero tempered complete with a Pakkawood handle. I have this style of knife, the Japanese call it Yanagi and with its long blade it is ideal if you do your slicing by pulling the blade through the meat rather than pushing, doesn’t hurt anything either way but pulling will be a more accurate cut for something like lox. This is only a small sampling of Mac Knives which has a kitchen knife made for any cutting job in the kitchen sold by the piece set or collection.
