My Set, My Brussels Sprouts

At Thanksgiving dinner, our turkey was cooked to perfection, the mashed potatoes were creamy and the cornbread was tender.  But by far the most popular dish on our Thanksgiving table was the Brussels sprouts, pan-roasted and tossed with brown butter, pecans and Romano cheese.  The full recipe is on Relish.

I was lucky enough to be sent two pans from Calphalon’s Your Set cookware line, the AccuCore Stainless Steel 3-quart Sauté Pan and the Unison Non-stick 10″ Omelet Pan.  Your Set by Calphalon helps you completely customize your cookware set, so you aren’t stuck with a bunch of pans you’ll never use like you might be with other cookware sets.  I adore the AccuCore stainless steel because it has a wide, flat bottom, perfect for cooking large amounts of vegetables.  I can’t wait to use it for small-batch jams and preserves, too.  As for the Unison Nonstick, I’ve finally found a durable nonstick cookware that isn’t made with Teflon, making it safe for me to use around our pet bird (and giving me peace of mind about our health as well).  Visit the Your Set by Calphalon web page to learn more.

    Hi – I applaud the idea of creating a safer home, and because there’s so much misinformation out there about the Teflon® brand, I’m not surprised that you are concerned. I’m a representative of DuPont though, and hope you’ll let me share some information with you and your readers so that everyone can make truly informed decisions.

    Just to let you know, fumes from any type of unattended or overheated cookware, not just the Teflon® brand, can damage a bird’s lungs with alarming speed. Additional information can be found on our website Pet Bird Safety (

    I hope you find this information useful. Best, Sara.

      Hi Sara, Thank you for your comment. We are aware that birds are sensitive to fumes from any cookware, and are careful of that whenever we’re cooking. But based on our research and my husband’s materials engineering experience, we’ve decided that Teflon cookware isn’t the right choice for us.
