Legalized Pots

It may have been overshadowed by other legalization news, but several states - including Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alaska - legalized the recreational use of pots and pans last week. Some say this was a long time coming, and that the so-called "war on cookware" has failed, but the federal response to the new laws is still unclear.

No, it does not. It fits inside the 3qt sauce pan which would have the lid. We're, uhm, not selling the sauce pan though.

I noticed that. Any idea if it would fit into the 6 Qt dutch oven instead? It looks like the 6 Qt dutch oven and the 3 Qt saucepan are the same diameter. If (and only if) that is true, then there's no problem because steam rises.

Taking a look at the 12" covered saute and the 1-quart covered sauce pan and wondering if the aluminum core is completely encapsulated (like All-Clad) or if the aluminum core is a visibly sandwiched disk?

Likewise the 6-quart Dutch Oven -- does anyone know if it is seamlessly encapsulated?

Look at Lodge's deep skillets, or their chicken fryer set. The chicken fryer set is a 10.25 inch deep skillet, with another shallow skillet as a lid. Yes, the lid CAN be used as a skillet, when not frying chicken.

No, I'm not "southern," unless you count Arizona as the "south."

Lodge cast iron will be the cheapest, most durable, and most "correct" for the style. (Tennessee IS in the "south.")

I second the Lodge deep skillet recommendation. You can also get it with a regular lid, but, surprisingly, the one with the skillet lid is cheaper at Amazon.com.

(Many of the reviews for Lodge cast iron on Amazon.com imply that they don't properly package cast iron, but this one will probably come in a box and should be OK. Because South Pittsburg, Tennessee, is between here and where my parents live, I have purchased all my Lodge stuff at their factory outlet store.)

I'm no expert on pots and pans but the other day on woot I was carefully evaluating a Regal 12" saute pan which was tri-ply for $40....now this one which would seem to be of lesser quality is listed for $50.

I noticed that as well. I recall the one the other day had a steel lid instead of glass. Other than that I don't know why this one would cost more.
