I have been posting a lot of cooking recipes lately, especially soups and chilies so I was thinking about how lucky I am to have found so many great pieces of cookware at garage sales and thrift stores. Don’t be afraid to buy cookware at thrift sales or garage sales, a good scrub or a trip through the dishwasher and they are good as new. And a heck of a lot cheaper.
This beautiful blue enamelled cast iron pot with it’s lid and matching serving bowl was a fantastic find at a garage sale last summer. For only $10 it was a steal. It is my new favourite pot, nothing sticks to it too. And that is saying a lot because I have a collection of Le Creuset enamel ware that we bought when we were living in Germany (dirt cheap) that I love very much. But this is now my go-to.
This long bread pan and the Denby stoneware baking dishes, one even has a lid were only $10 all together. The bread pan is amazing for meatloaf too and I made what I have been told; is the best meatloaf ever in this pan. Maybe I should post that recipe too. It’s awesome.
These white baking pans were all thrifted. I realized after taking the picture that the lonely one on the lower left has a twin but it was in the dish washer. These all cost me about $2.99 – $3.99 a piece, sometimes I got them on 50% off days, so they were even cheaper.
Hopefully, if you love or even like to cook, you have some great pieces of cookware that make cooking a pleasure. I know I get excited to cook when I have good pieces that never fail me. Hope you are lucky at garage sales and thrift stores finding great pieces too. Cheers, Michele
