Would you? Could you?


Cook food in this? IMG_2197

Or how about this?IMG_2198

In a hole? with a mole?

me neither.

Perhaps I am just spoiled?

These do not reside in MY kitchen, but someone expected me to use them.

No thank you.

I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like a nasty pan,
I do not like them, Sam I am.



  1. Yuck, no way would I use these in my kitchen.

  2. all you need is a little cameo stainless steel cleaner and they will shine right up. unless that is, they are not stainless steel.

    i love my stainless steel cookware.

  3. Good Morning,
    Hey you didn't tell me you were a Family and Consumer Science teacher?! This is exactly how our pans look in our Foods lab. The kids cook at too high a heat...scourching things to the pan...then they clean up in a hurry not taking the time to scrub off the crud. So 1st block leaves...2nd block comes in and gets ready to prepare their product and they say, 'Mrs. G...look at our pan'

    I can't wait for school to start!!

    Tell me...when did you actually use these pans?

    Have a wonderful Wednesday. ~Natalie

  4. Yikes! My husband is famous for leaving half cooked eggs in the pan to sit for the day. NICE!

  5. Ha! Nope, I wouldn't want to use those either :)

  6. I will cook in just about anything, but even I have my limits.

  7. I do not like these in a boat
    I would not cook in them to feed my goat,
    I would not use them here or there
    I would not use them ANYWHERE!

  8. A little bit of baking soda will help get them sparkly clean again. I would never cook on that...disgusting!

  9. I think I would use them.

    ha ha ha!


    p.s. you're an awesome!

  10. LOL I just want to know who's house you snapped that picture in and do they read your blog??

  11. I would.
    I am not fussy.
    Like you.
    I am better than you.
    That is all there is to it.
    Stop denying it : )

  12. PS I don't cook at all!
    Clean pans.
    Dirty pans.
    Any pans.

  13. Hmmmmm.... In past, my skillets could get kinda scratched up (back before teflon-type stuff)... AND--I had an old heavy cast-iron skillet which I loved for many years.

    These days I use a big teflon-coated skillet --and I'll admit that it does have some scratches in the bottom. But--it's not bad --like the ones you pictured, especially that second one. I tend to use pans and skillets for years and years though...


  14. I would use this as an excuse to shop!!!!!

  15. I wouldn't use them, either. I'll take any excuse to stay out of the kitchen!

  16. I wouldn't use them either. delivery? : )

  17. Are you on vacay with a bad kitchen? I hate that!

  18. I don't like them either, Dr. Seuss... er, Suz.

  19. That's just gross. Even I wouldn't cook in those! :D

  20. Ew.

    Just... ew.

    Did you hit 'em on the head with those nasty things?

    You should have!

  21. i can just see and hear the sham wow guy sellin a pitch for some cloth that will clean that up! you are so cute and funny!!! i wouldnt use them as is but i might try to clean them up... BTW who is the culprit thats wanting you to use those...

  22. M neither, they're not teflon.

  23. suz.....oooh, where did these yuckies come from? ewww, they would need some major overhauling before i would put any food in them. i know they are probably repairable with some TLC....LOTS of it. and i have stainless revereware and waterless cookware that is my MIL's. she has had for years. then i have le creuset, i love it. and my old seasoned cast iron skillets....gotta have several sizes of those. but i wouldn't expect anyone to cook with/in that, with rust? ewwww, give me a break.....that is just gross! jo

  24. I wouldn't use them now unless of course they were all I had. There was a day that all I had were some old used pans, like this and so now I so appreciate cooking on much better! If I had to, I would but after I used some elbow grease...:)

  25. And no way could you cook green eggs and ham! Ha!

  26. ...hahaha! I don't either...

  27. I might have risked my life on #1, but #2 never!

  28. You just need to get some brillo pads, and they'll be good as new! (Can you tell I live on a tight budget??) :)

  29. i'm with you, no way jose!

  30. Would you, could you, with a fox? Would you , could you, with a box?

    Try it! Try it! You will see.
    Nasty pans are good for ye.

  31. Oh no they'd
    Never be my own.
    Maybe some guy
    Who lived alone.

    Those are nasty, but could probably be cleaned up with alot of elbow grease. I remember cringing when I saw the coffee pot that the guys used in the control room at the power plant. They got mad when I cleaned it...said it ruined the taste of the coffee. Ugh.

  32. that's enough to do your pan in really ( Northern saying)
