All I can think of is that "real cooks" do a lot of cooking therefore open shelving means everything covered with dust and grease (sautéing, etc). No thank you. I have way more to do with my time than continually cleaning.

That's why I've never understood pots and pans hung above the stove.

Yes, both the above make things convenient, but how hard is it to open a door or drawer.

Was laughing part way in. Had forgotten it was 4/1. Very funny. Good to know about the Google comparison.

LOVE pesto and it freezes so well. One can make pesto from so many things: Arugula, Parsley, Asparagus, Broccoli, Carrot tops, Cilantro, Dill, Kale, Scallions, Broccoli Rabe, radish leaves and on and on.

I've had single basin sinks and much prefer my Kohler Executive double basin. One half is deeper and larger and the other half shallower and smaller for the dishwater: http://www.faucetdirect.com/kohler-k-5931-4u-double-basin-cast-iron-kitchen-sink-from-the-executive-chef-series/p227835

All I can see is grease and dust covering everything - if she cooks everyday.

I have CeasarStone's Chocolate Truffle which is very shiny. Love it. The only problem is with this color, I have a hard time telling when I've spilled things.

Completely agree with Norainapeartree above. While I may eat most of my meals alone, they are always at the dining room table. Cannot abide food in the living areas - maybe that's because I don't watch TV.

I had just called Mikasa about this problem on my French Countryside, which they told me was caused by the nickle in our flatware. They recommended Bar Keepers Friend, too.

Re: cleaning glass top stoves. You have to wait until the next day when it is COLD. Soap and water and a paper towel to clean it and it gleams. I love my flat top stove! (And I do a lot of cooking.) I use a flat razor blade to scrape any major spills if I have to - with care.
