I like the idea of glass a bit more for flour and sugar because I worry about plastics since they will degrade over time.

The Rubbermade ones I have are not glass clear but you can definitely see what's in them...and they are cheap enough that replacing them isn't a big deal.

That, and with my still spastic arms and hands, glass is not a good plan for me.

Yeah after a few glasses of wine or a couple cocktails, I'm dangerous too.

I use these big ones for flour. Smaller ones for sugar and so on. Note the very wide mouths. You can easily get in there with measuring cups. But you don't want them in a cabinet, you want to slide them into proper reach, not lift them.

Ooooh I like it!

If I can carve out some decent counter space I'd totally buy them.

I've seen on some cooking shows...Ina Garten I think has a HUGE one on her countertop that I secretly covet.

What am I talking about....I WANT her whole kitchen!

Or just to cook for me. Sadcryface

I like Alton, I have one of his books. I wouldn't actually call it a cookbook, it's more about cooking method. Like if you understand how to braise (the process) you can cook lots of things...

The problem I have with the book, it's full of sciencey foody related things like the science behind braising...

On his show I'd often mentally tune out during those parts...

What's that song that plays through Homer Simpson's mind? Turkey in the straw?

Fun fact: beer is the greatest base for braising. Night black stout plus prime venison cuts equals one of the greatest things I ever made.

Somehow I don't think it would surprise anyone to know that I own this book.

... this is my signature!

Beer is better than wine in cooking, it's far more complex than wine in flavor and adds a depth not easily achieved. Smile it also has the added bonus of being more affordable than a good bottle of Zin, Cabernet, or even Chardonnay. A nice belgian blond lends its self nicely to the most delicate fish.

I think I'll buy that book for my husband. Smile
