The lovely people at CNS Stores, who sell just about everything under the sun (like barstools), sent me this Calphalon 3 quart ceramic pot to try myself, and give to you guys!
I tore that baby open and washed it out, eager to try it out. Ya see, I have a big pot that I used for soups, tomato sauces, and boiling pasta, but I didn’t have anything smaller. I was SO EXCITED to get this one. I just imagined all of the soups and stews I’d make with this bad boy.
I bought some oxtails and red wine ahead of time to make oxtail stew.
Isn’t it beautiful? Red’s also my favorite color, too!
Unfortunately, I’m also a moron who got over-excited. You know what you’re not supposed to do with ceramics?
Put it on direct heat.
And you know what I did with this kick-ass pot?
I put it on direct heat.
After I read all of the packaging.
I am an idiot.
*CRACK* I completely killed a new piece of cookware.
But I know you aren’t an idiot like me. You guys are smart. I know you guys are going to just put it directly in the oven or microwave, or NOT ON TOP OF THE STOVE. If you’d like to win one, type out a comment that says “I will not put ceramic cookware on direct heat”, and I’ll pick one of them.
This contest will be up until Friday, April 23rd at 10 A.M. So spread the word, win something cool, and don’t wreck it like me.
**Update** I have no idea what time blogger will say it is, but as of 4/23 it is now about 10 am. Comments are closed. Time to pick!
