Remain Calm and Try Not To "Pan"ic...There's More Vintage Kitchenware. Status: Clean Lines and Super Stylish.
That's right, look close and you'll see a $10 price tag on the big skillet. Estate sale snag. The smaller one came from a thrift store.
The smaller one didn't have a handle when I found it. I didn't even know that the
handle on the skillet came off. Then I noticed these "Panless Handles" (Like
Phoneless Cord?) at some of the thrift stores and eventually the connection was
So I snatched up a couple of handles to at the thrift store but only realized when I
took these pictures that the set I found doesn't match the handle that came with
my Skillet! Bummer. Now that I see the difference I want the cleaner more Mod
I'd love to find some more of these. I looked around on Ebay a long time ago and
couldn't find much. I guess it's not so sought after. ::shrugg:: What's not to love? I
did find that the Vision cookware is somewhat in demand. I have a quite a few
pieces of Vision that my Mom handed down to me back in the early Nineties. I see
it all the time at the thrift stores too, real cheap!
Doesn't this remind you of a more mod set of Le Creuset cookware? It does me. I
love that it doesn't have the Teflon coating too. That stuff gets bad after a long
time or if it gets overheated. Give me a nicely seasoned Iron Skillet for real.
I wish I actually cooked more than every once in a while so I'd be able to give you
more of an opinion on how well these work. They are in such nice condition, I don't
know that I'd use them if I DID cook more often! If I was tripping over them at the
thrift stores I probably would be more apt to use them. Maybe I'll find a few "extras"
or spares that I'll be able to use someday.
