If 'ifs and ans' were pots and pans

September 24th, 2011 at 10:07 pm

there'd be no trade for tinkers, as granny used to say. My little saucepan has sprung a leak after 35 years of almost daily use. It saw me thru boiling eggs in student days and heating milk for ds' cocoa, plus making gravy every Sunday. When granny was a young housewife in Dublin she really did take the pan to the tinker to be mended, but there's not much chance of finding one nowadays, so I am mentally preparing for sticker shock when I go to buy a new one. I doubt if I will find one that lasts another 35 years either.

    Most likely not!

    Make sure it has a thick bottom on it.

    It's amazing how much better pots and pans were made back in the day, and they would often lead to three and four decades of reliable use. Nowadays you hardly ever have any insurance of such things. Good luck!
