Revolutionary Stainless Steel Cookware
“Revolutionary” is a play on words, as I wanted to cover a little ground today on Revere copper bottom cookware. Adding style to a modern kitchen does not have to break the bank and you don’t need to hire an interior decorator every time. It can come easily in the form of a new set of Stainless Steel Cookware from your local mall or any online store of your choice.
HISTORY OF REVERE COPPER BOTTOM COOKWARE
If it reminds you of Paul Revere, it should…he started the Revere Copper Company in 1801. While he didn’t make the cookware back then, or even in his lifetime, as the company grew they created their copper bottom stainless steel cookware in 1939. Back then, this cookware was highly advanced and became popular because it was lighter than the standard cookware of the time.
I’ve had one particular Revere copper bottom sauce pan for a while, but I can’t seem to track down its stainless steel grade. You may have noticed or even purchased utensils or flatware that say something like “flatware 18 10” or “flatware 18 0.” Those numbers stand for the grade of the stainless steel…the higher the second number, the better. The simple way to explain it is that the “18″ stands for the percentage of chromium in the stainless steel, and the second number (usually “0,” “8,” or “10″) stands for the percentage of nickel in the overall stainless steel formula
STAINLESS STEEL QUALITY
I know that the Revere cookware brand was purchased by World Kitchen, and that there have been some complaints from people who’ve used pre-World Kitchen Revere cookware that the World Kitchen version is thinner and cheaper than what they’re used too.
My sauce pan seems thin, but it is still great for any of the cooking I do. The nice thing about copper bottom cookware is that the copper spreads heat fast, thus keeping an even heat during cooking. No hot spots!
It is true that the copper can’t be cleaned with just soap and water like stainless steel, but since it is on the bottom, and not covering the entire piece of cookware, I don’t have as much surface area to worry about polishing.
Add to that the durability and easy cleaning of stainless steel and I’ve got a nice piece of cookware. Good enough to carry on the FOOD REVOLUTION!
One option that is constantly overlooked when it comes to upgrading window treatments is that of electric curtain rails. With the use of a motorised track, these inventions mean that curtains can be opened by a homeowner with a remote control without them having to even leave their seat. An innovative creation, these window treatments can be customised to suit any room and give the user total convenience no matter where they are.
Why you should consider electric curtain rails?
Like everything else in the world today, electric curtain rails are developing with the times and are becoming more and more innovative. They can be set to timers which allows them to open and shut at predetermined times. This means that you can wake up to the morning sunrise without leaving your bed on those particularly lazy weekends.
Perhaps more importantly, they can be set to open and close when you aren’t there either. This can used as a deterrent to potential burglars when you are away on holiday, as they will see regular movement and changes in the home and assume the house is still occupied. Combined with an alarm system and other security measures, electric curtain rails can help secure your home as well as provide convenience.
Curtain rails can also be activated and prompted by light sensors, meaning that you are able to open and shut the curtains when the light outside starts to lighten up or dim down. Additionally, the rails can also be operated with heat sensors and wall switches.
Installing your curtain rails is also a very simple process which requires very little in the way of hardware. They should already come pre-wired, meaning that you don’t have to read the “A-Z of electronics” to fit them on your windows. The first step is to mount the motorised rail above the desired window, then loop the curtains on to it before plugging it into an electricity outlet. The belt-drive system on which a good motorised curtain rail should be run is likely to require very little maintenance (if any at all) and should work without any problems whatsoever at least 15,000 times.
The input required with these is minimal, and curtain rails can save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. Add to this the fact that they can also wind up being a potential security measure, and you have a whole list of reasons to explore the possibility of installing them in your home.
