Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well. 

Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty. 

I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is difficult to remove the grease from glass lids, though, even with Dawn, which happens to be the only dishwashing liquid I'll use because it is very good at removing grease. So, I'll use vinegar, as I mentioned in a previous cleaning post, to finish cleaning the grease off after washing the lids with Dawn.

Meals cook much faster in these pots and pans. Oh my goodness! I burned my fried potatoes the first couple of times I used one of the skillets. So, stick around and turn frequently. My homemade vegetable beef soup started boiling within a couple of minutes last night, where it would have taken at least 10 minutes to start boiling in my old pot. So, be very careful not to scorch gravies, not to over heat boiled eggs, etc. Heat distributes faster on the flat, square skillet so that my pancakes brown more evenly on my round stove eye. So, one more warning, cooking is much faster in these skillets and requires more frequent turning and stirring to avoid burning and scorching.

With that said, the scorched or overcooked food will come off very easily. Because I did make these mistakes when I first used these. I use very little vegetable oil when I decide to use any at all. Because certain foods such as fries need some oil in order to brown evenly. 

Another thing I love about this cookware is that the coating hasn't flaked yet. I've always had issues with other nonstick (Teflon) coatings wanting to flake after the first use - and I always used proper utensils with them. I still use my older plastic utensils with this cookware. On occasion, I've used metal, but very carefully. No problems yet. The outside has scratched some, but I do nest and stack my cookware because I don't have much storage space. However, the scratches on the outside aren't very noticeable and don't hurt them cosmetically. Just wanted to bring that to your attention.

The price tag on my set is decent at $149 on Amazon (link is below the picture). I've paid way more for cookware that disappointed me the first time I cooked with them. These don't need to be seasoned like some of the other cookware I've recently used (copper cookware). These do come with a 30 day return option if you aren't satisfied. So, if you've been looking to buy new cookware, I think Granitestone is worth trying. As always, if you have questions, feel free to contact me on the right side of the page or leave a comment.

Worry is Waste

How many moments do we waste worrying about things we aren't able to control? I know I've had my fair share of moments like that. I won't say that I never worry anymore. Human nature is to worry. But I worry much less these days, because I trust God to take care of all my needs and problems. According to my NLT study Bible, worrying leads to immobilization, but concern leads us to action. I like that they have shown me the difference between worry and concern. Let's, now, read today's Scripture about the impacts of worry and the effects of trusting God from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 6:25-34 says, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your

Buying and Care Tips for Outdoor Plants

These first  2 tips came to mind when I was buying 4 new outdoor deck plants this past week at Lowe's. First of all, at least at the Lowe's I visited, all of their hanging basket flowers were badly wilted and turning brown. I'll have to say, that was a first. All of their plants usually look amazing. I'm not sure if it's because of all the local rainfall, and maybe they haven't been watering them regularly, and that was why they looked so shabby. Because typically, someone would be watering the flowers at about the time we arrived; always have been in the past, and no one was doing that on the day we visited earlier this week. Or maybe they've let Mother Nature overwater them. I don't know. Regardless of the reason, I passed on buying hanging basket flowers. I'm the type of person who really needs to start with healthy flowers. Therefore, I brought home 4 in regular pots, because they all looked healthy. So, my first tip is to pay attention to the

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u
