New President's Choice Cookware
Is it any good? It sure is remarkably cheep. But, it still looks well made. I am particularly interested to know if anyways has taken a serious look at (or used already) the rice cooker or any of the knives. The toaster and toaster ovens both for $40 look great and how bad could they mess-up a toaster?
Anyways, I was thinking of getting a rice cooker and I had a ZojiRushi with a timer on the top of my list. I know they're great -- but, I'm a student and I think nearly $150-200 is a bit steep and I do want more than the one button version. The specs for the PC one look good 3 default settings plus an override function to allow any time to be set. Also a steaming function and a steaming tray. A heavy and non-stick bowl, nice chrome finish. All for $39.99.
I say one at a Loblaws near a friend's house the other day and it looked not bad, but I didn't have time to really check it out. The loblaws I sometimes go to, to get staples, after I'm done at the Market (on South Jarvis at Queen's Quay in Toronto) doesn't have a cookware section anymore and didn't have it on display elsewhere so I thought I'd ask if anyone on here had taken a closer look?
Not yet. I bought the PC panini grill ($40 for a huge grill), but haven't tried it yet.
The Loblaws on St. Clair just east of Bathurst (St. Clair subway stop) has a small cookware section.
The best selection of PC cookware, and some other great brands, is at the newer Superstores. There's one at Don Mills and Eglinton, and one at Dufferin and Steeles. There are others, as well.
A word to all Canadians out there - WalMart is coming in fast and furious with their new superstores. Yes, competition is good for keeping prices in check, but we also want to keep our Canadian merchants in business. Remember this when you're deciding whether to go to Loblaw's, Dominion, IGA or WalMart.
