I think that everyone who is a cookware enthusiastic (addict?) ends up with a lot of good quality “stuff” they do not need … Some was bought in an excess of enthusiasm, some was an unnecessary part of a set, some were an uninspired present, some were a mistake… Among my never used cookware I have a 10in nonstick A/C pan, a 3 cup Zojirushi Micom, a mini KA food processor, some Nomex puppet baking mitts, etc. The barely used list is even longer.
For average quality “stuff” I simply donate it to Goodwill. But I very much doubt that Goodwill knows what to do with a new AC pan – they probably will sell it for the same $5 as any other pan they sell. Ideally, I would donate these things to some charity that can deal with good cookware, maybe one associated with a cooking school but never found anything appropriate. I guess I could sell l them on e-bay or Craiglist but I really do not have the time.
What do you do with the good stuff you do not need? Thanks, -- CF
