Finally did it - Fissler Profi 28cm 7.2 liter stewpot purchased

CHSeifert | Apr 30, 201903:09 AM     26

I’m closing in now.
Getting almost there.

Since moving on from using quality ingredients in less than ideal middle of the road cookware, I knew I wanted the best cookware & gear available for a feinsmecker/enthusiast amateur gastro guy like I am.

Just bought the Fissler Original Profi 28 cm 7.2 liter stewpot and i really hope it will live up to its good reputation as a stew pot. I will most likely never use it for anything else than slowly cooked simmering stews.

Amazon Italy charged me €139 including shipping for it.

I now just need a Blendtech Pro 800 blender and my cookware and kitchen gear will be complete.

A Molteni range will be the next thing I consider, if I move to a condo with a larger kitchen ;-) LOL

So the fun question is:

‘Do I make better quality food and dishes with my new cookware gear, than I did with my older middle of the road gear?’

The reply is not completely possible to make, until I spend some serious cooking time with my newer perfect cookware gear.

But all in all, I honestly feel my quality level has risen quite a bit since beginning to use better quality cookware. It’s hard to isolate things, but I feel - as you move on in your cooking journey - you of course get more and more experience and you get more and more secure about the techniques in cooking, but honestly I feel, that cooking in better quality pans and pots make it easier to constantly produce higher quality and better tasting dishes.

I’m still far from the level of a high end restaurant chef, but I have many decades in front of me to constantly reach new higher levels of cooking.

I love to know, that what I now cook with is pretty much the peak of cookware you can purchase.

I will continue to follow the forums and new innovations within the cooking industry, so I might change my setup a long the way according to what I think will improve my quality level as an enthusiast gastro amateur chef.

I still look for the best possible ingredients for my wallet.
I grew up with the upmost respect for high quality ingredients in cooking.
I have never stopped using high quality ingredients and will continue using them in my dishes.

Using high quality cookware just adds to the quality of the journey I’m on towards making dishes on a constantly high level, comparable to what an experienced knowledgeable highly skilled professional chef can.

Do you feel some of the cookware you have bought has helped you in becoming a better cook ?

Cheers, Claus
