I bought this 10" (2-quart) Bourgeat flared copper saute pan a couple of years ago, along with two other Bourgeat copper pieces, from a website that had inadvertently underpriced many pieces of really fine copper cookware. But even as a bargain, it was fairly expensive, and the truth is, I rarely use it. It's one of those things where I like the idea of it more than the reality of it. Since it's "flared," the base of it is only about 7", making it fairly small for a saute pan, and it's just a little too cumbersome for me to use a saucepan (it's heavy, as you might imagine). No, I don't want to give it away or sell it. I like it even though I don't use it. Is that weird, or what? (By the way, I do love and use the two other pieces I bought at the same time -- an 11" casserole and an 11" brazier).
Have you got kitchen items you paid quite a bit for, that you imagined you'd use fairly often but which turned out to get used rarely, if at all? Are you attached to these purchases like I am to mine, for reasons you don't really understand?
