How to revive a rusty iron skillet | Lifestyles | willistonherald.com

A well-seasoned cast iron skillet is a must have item in every home cook’s kitchen, and with proper care your cast iron skillet can last a lifetime. But what happens when you notice rust on your cast iron, or get stuck with baked on food that just won’t come off? Don’t give up on your favorite cast iron cookware. This simple chainmail scrubber is the solution.

Design

This chainmail style cast iron scrubber  is made from stainless steel, and is designed to scrub away rust and baked on food without scratching your cast iron pans, or stripping away seasoning. The scrubber can be used on any cast iron product, including skillets, Dutch ovens, teapots, griddles, and more. This scrubber is also easy to sanitize, unlike sponges which hold bacteria.

How It Works

Getting rid of rust is simple with this scrubber. Just cleanse your cast iron cookware with warm water, scrub the rust or residue away using the chainmail scrubber, then dry your pan with a towel. There’s no need for harsh detergents.

Preventing Rust

To keep your cast iron pan in perfect shape, season it with a small amount of olive oil after each scrub. If you notice rust starting to form, use the scrubber before the problem spreads.

The best hard anodized cookware sets you can buy

The Insider Pick:

If you’re fed up with cooking a scrambled egg, only for it to stick to your saucepan, then it’s time to invest in some hard-anodized nonstick cookware. Considered the go-to option for home cooks, and even professional chefs, hard anodized cookware is easy to use and clean.

So, what does “hard-anodized” actually mean? It’s essentially a way of hardening a soft aluminum surface electrochemically so it becomes twice as hard as stainless steel and has an oxidized layer that is nonstick, scratch resistant, and non-reactive to food. Hard-anodized aluminum cookware is easy to clean, non-toxic, and requires little or no oil.

Thanks to highly durable surfaces, it can withstand high temperatures, so it can go in the oven. Plus, its nonstick layer lasts up to three times as long as a regular nonstick pan. It does a great job of preventing scratches and can’t chip or peel away.

You’ll need a variety of pots and pans for your kitchen depending on how keen a cook you are. Buying individual pieces can be very expensive, so sets are a more economical alternative. To keep things simple, we have focused on 10 to 12-piece sets, which are suitable for a couple or small family. In boxed sets, lids are considered as pieces and some manufacturers even count extras such utensils, so that’s something to bear in mind.

There are plenty of sets to choose from on the market and options to suit all budgets, but it can be hard to know which sets are best for you. We’ve spent hours researching and putting a variety of hard-anodized cookware sets to the test, making scrambled eggs and sticky sauces, and flipping pancakes, to come up with our top five.

To be included, sets had to be PFOA-free. Some manufacturers state it is okay to use metal utensils with hard-anodized cookware, but in our experience, it is still better to use silicone ones to keep surfaces in good condition

13 Hacks to Organize Your Home in 2018

If you’ve made a resolution to get organized in 2018, you’re not alone. Decluttering for a tidy home has become a movement all its own, with hundreds of books, online tutorials and blogs dedicated to managing (or getting rid of) clutter. Marie Kondo, author of “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” has even become a household name for her proven methods of maintaining order and for the question “Does this spark joy?”

So, where do you begin? Get started with these 13 tips to tackle clutter and get organized one room at a time.

Entryway

Problem: A disarray of coats, shoes, mail and keys.

Solution: Turn this drop-zone into a command center. Hang a wall organizer for keys and incoming mail. A bench with built-in storage is perfect for containing shoes.

Kitchen

Problem: A cupboard of tangled pots and pans.

Solution: Keep only the cookware you love and hang it from an overhead pot rack. They’ll be easy to access and put away, and you’ll be more likely to take good care of objects in plain sight.

Dining Room

Problem: Special dinnerware that takes up space and remains unused year after year.

Solution: Store dinnerware where you use it. A sideboard in the dining room is stylish, and some models feature glass doors so you can enjoy the fine china even when it’s not in use.

Living Room

Problem: Dust-covered shelves full of books and knick-knacks.

Solution: Replace your bookshelves with basic storage for items you use every day. Consider leaning a decorative ladder for hanging your favorite throw blankets instead.

Bedroom

Problem: A cluttered nightstand.

Solution: Small trays or inserts are a simple way to corral small necessities, such as jewelry and lip balm, in your nightstand drawer. No drawer? A small tray can go a long way on your tabletop, too. Consider using a clip-on lamp to make extra room.

Bathroom

Problem: Cabinets stuffed to the brim.

Solution: Start by throwing away expired medications and products you don’t use. Then get creative with easy-to-access storage containers. Items you use every day should be easy to grab – and, more importantly, put away.

Office

Problem: An outdated filing system.

Solution: Purchase or borrow a scanner to digitize must-have records, and recycle or shred everything else. Digitizing also allows you to get rid of bulky filing cabinets.

Playroom

Problem: Toys. Everywhere.

Solution: Set up toy storage to accommodate the simple truth: Toys will reappear as soon as they’re put away. Try all-encompassing baskets and bins to toss toys into (no sorting needed).

Laundry Room

Problem: Clean laundry mingled with dirty laundry.

Solution: Make sorting impossible to ignore with clearly marked hampers for dirty and clean clothes. This will reduce the time you spend doing laundry and prolong the life of your clothes.

Closets

Problem: Tons of clothes you don’t wear.

Solution: If you hold an item of clothing in your hands, does it make you happy? If not, donate it and give the clothes you do love room to breathe.

Photo and Memory Drawers

Problem: Mostly chaos.

Solution: Commit to finding your favorite photos and putting them in an album (hardcover or digital). Blurry images, duplicates and others can be stored in acid-free archival boxes and labeled by year or event.

Garage

Problem: Tools and outdoor necessities nearly block the path to your car.

Solution: Tools that work together should live together, so designate space for each (off the floor, if possible). Pegboards are an excellent investment for organizing hand tools, and wall-mounted storage works for large items such as brooms and shovels.

Home Bar

Problem: You never know what you have on hand.

Solution: Make a list of everything you have in your home bar and reference it each time you host guests or craft a new cocktail. This will keep you from buying duplicates and act as a good reminder when it’s time to restock.

Remember, no one is perfect, but an effort to organize and declutter your home can lead to peace of mind and space to enjoy the things you love most.

Tiny Surrey gin distillery supplying Fortnum & Mason moves from a kitchen to a barn

The Gin Kitchen, based in Dorking, is set to ramp up its production and cash in on the ‘experiential trend’ by offering distilling experiences to customers in a new site based in a barn.

The current site in a pub outbuilding.

The distillery, owned by Kate Gregory and Helen Muncie, is set to move to a 80m2 barn, a site over four times larger that what they currently operate from.

With its two gins, Dancing Dragontail Summer Gin and Gutsy Monkey Winter Gin, stocked in Fortnum Mason at £53 a bottle, the pair are aiming to commission a new still this summer. They currently use two 40-litre stills but wish to buy an additional 350-litre still.

The barn, which will also provide room for future expansion, will enable the distillery to receive deliveries of pallets for the first time. Currently, pallets are delivered to a self-storage facility in Leatherhead before the bottles are loaded into a car to drive them to the distillery.

The move will create a further four full-time jobs, adding to the current 2.5 full-time equivalent members (three still guardians, a brand ambassador and a distribution manager) of staff that the distillery currently employs.

Speaking about the project, the pair told db: “We want to create a destination for spirits in Dorking, with a tasting bar and shop, selling not only bottles but accessories, such as hand-painted glasses, and complementary products from other local producers. The tasting bar will be fully equipped to showcase our spirits in cocktails and to unleash our experiments on the public.

“We are always happy to show people around the distillery ad hoc when we’re open, but we will also offer organised group visits including talks and tastings. We’re most excited however about the distilling experiences we’ll be offering, where a group comes along for an evening with some ideas for botanicals (which we source in advance) and they have hands-on experience of distilling their own gin and naming it.

“They get to take a bottle away at the end of the day and we store it in our records in case they want to order more bottles in the future. We’ll also be hosting events such as product launches and parties from time to time”.

And it’s not all gin. The duo launched a rose absinthe last year in the basement of a tattoo studio in Dorking. Made with green anise, wormwood, fennel, elecampane, immortelle and liquorice, it uses rose petals for the second maceration, meaning that it is “the colour of rosé wine” instead of the usual bright green.

They hope to move into the new premises in March 2018 and are currently working on a collaboration with Fortnum Mason for Chinese New Year to be unveiled next month.

Gregory and Muncie opened The Gin Kitchen Distillery and launched Gutsy Monkey Winter Gin in November 2016 after trialling their product on friends and family. After “stalking” the spirits buyer at Fortnum and Mason they gained listings and ‘spirit of the month’ accolades at the department store in 2017.

Muncie added: “The sense of growing something from nothing has been so satisfying and rewarding. We still go ‘Oh my god, we have got a distillery!’

“And it’s really good fun. We started off saying, if we get our gin on a shelf in a pub, and break even, that’s pretty cool. We didn’t expect to see this as a business. Now we have created jobs, and that’s really nice too.”

The new barn is over four times larger that the current distillery site.
