    CI updated its meat pounder review, and now recommends a different one.

    • Hi Dana, you are right. CI has the following reservations regarding my meat pounder, “When pitted against heavier models, the flaws of this offset-handled pounder became apparent. Shorter testers, pounding at a less optimal angle, found that the heel of the disk often dug into and tore the meat.”

      They recommend the “Norpro Grip-Ez Meat Pounder” for $17.50. They say “The shape and heft of this vertical-style model provided the right combination of control and force to produce nearly flawless cutlets.”

    Buy your Chicago knives! I’ve had a set (cooking and steak) for 25 years, and love them. Yes, we do sharpen the kitchen ones, as we use them daily.

    I treated myself to a Thermapen thermometer, much touted by CI and ATK. They were offered for $76 or so through an ATK email. So much better than its regular $98 price tag. It was a splurge, but it will be Birthday/Christmas for a year or so! 😉 It is worth every penny. A very fine (and very accurate) piece of equipment. I also ordered the magnetic jacket. It glows in the dark and protects it should it be dropped, heaven forbid.

    Add this to your list and thank me later…..
