The 15 Best Cast-Iron Pans Under $50 | HuffPost

They have been the tool of choice for chefs for decades, due to their durability and excellent heat retention­ — not to mention that nice sear you get when grilling a rib-eye. Cast iron, also known as “casting metal” has been found to date all the way back to China in the fourth century B.C, although before it was used as a cooking material its primary use was to make weapons. We saw the introduction of the cast-iron pan as we know it today, in the late nineteenth century, but prior to that the “spider pot” was its predecessor — “the spider” being that ancient cast-iron, cauldron-like pot, designed with three legs and a handle for use in a hearth or fireplace, often used for slow-cooking stews. Interestingly enough, besides adding a handle and eliminating the legs, not much about the original idea behind the pot has changed.

AnZa Concrete Espresso Machine Kickstarter Campaign Officially Launched

BERKELEY, CA – 11 Aug, 2017 – AnZa, an espresso machine that cuts a striking profile in concrete or Corian, is now available for purchase via  Kickstarter. In just five hours the team reached 50% of their funding goal. Not only that, but the Kickstarter team also featured AnZa among their “products we love section”. By backing the project, members of the public can take home the AnZa, which uses materials seldom found in kitchen appliances. The result is an espresso machine that brings life to any kitchen, and an unparalleled conversation piece.

The coffee world has undergone rapid change over the past few decades. In spite of industry innovations, little change has occurred around the aesthetics of espresso machines. The Montaag Products team, composed of designers who have worked on a variety of products for both Fortune 500 clients and early-stage startups, sought out another option. The result is the AnZa espresso machine, produced in two variations: one, brutalist concrete, and the other, an elegant white Corian.

“When we began this project, it was a creative endeavor to explore what an espresso machine could feel like through the use of completely honest materials” says Andrew Smith, Designer at Montaag Products LLC. “But after the positive feedback, we have been working towards scaled production. We are thrilled that, through the Kickstarter campaign, coffee and design aficionados can bring the AnZa to their own kitchen countertop.”

The team releases the new production machines after four years of testing and refinement, ensuring that the machine is both beautiful and functional, delivering high-quality performance with every shot of espresso. The new AnZa machines offers more than a strong cup of coffee and distinctive profile. The concrete and Corian models will be equipped with connectivity, giving users remote access, IoT integration, and the ability to program machines to fuel espresso habits.

To support the AnZa campaign (prices start at $599 for early bird), or any of the associated coffee accessories and rewards, visit the espresso machine’s  Kickstarter campaign which runs through September 7th.

The 15 best cast-iron pans under $50 – LA Times

A cast-iron pan is one of the only cooking instruments that actually adds nutritional benefit to a dish. When you cook, these pans release small amounts of iron into the food which can be really helpful in combating iron deficiencies, especially if you cook with a lot of high acidity.

Interestingly enough, besides adding a handle and eliminating the legs, not much about the original idea behind the pot has changed.

The process for making cast-iron cookware is essentially melting blocks of iron and steel together in a factory. Then, in order to raise the carbon levels, chemicals are added to the mix and the molten metal is poured into a clay mold. When the pan is cool, the mold is broken and the cookware is released. The pan is then smoothed and sometimes seasoned before it’s ready to be sold.

Urbana man gets prison sentence in theft plea – Champaign/Urbana News

573530_0812_loca_clavin_davis-2.jpg


URBANA — A Champaign County judge Thursday recommended an Urbana man, whose crimes have been linked to his drug addiction, for treatment while in prison.

Clavin Davis, 47, whose last known address was in the 1200 block of South Vine Street, pleaded guilty to retail theft over $300 and was sentenced to eight years in prison with credit for 195 days already served in jail.

Davis admitted to Judge Heidi Ladd that on Dec. 26, 2016, he went in the Champaign Walmart and stole a sound-surround system, a laptop computer and a KitchenAid mixer, worth a total of $900.

As part of a negotiated plea worked out by Assistant State’s Attorney Tim Sullivan and Davis’ attorney, Ed Piraino of Champaign, three other criminal cases in which Davis was charged with retail theft, burglary and possession of a controlled substance were dismissed. Sullivan also agreed not to file new charges in another case in which Davis was the suspect.

Sullivan told the judge that Davis had multiple prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance, burglary, theft, aggravated battery, resisting police, obstructing justice and driving under the influence.

Piraino asked Ladd to recommend Davis for drug treatment, which she agreed to do, but explained to Davis that the decision is up to officials at the Department of Corrections.
