Grandma's Pots : Keep or Throw Out
Ok here is my dilemma. I am moving at the end of this month and I found a box of pots that my Grandmother had given me. Worth keeping or throw out? Here is the list of brands:
San Ignacio - Made in Spain - Cobalt blue on outside with white enamel on inside. There are two of these a small (1/2 quart) pot and a 1-2 qt pot with lids. Handles still seem sturdy.
JMP Sweet Flowers - Made in Spain - Creamy white outside with w/ yellow and orange flowers on it with a white enamel inside. There are 3 sizes - sm/med/lg all with lids. Handles are a bit loose. Reminds me of the 70's - 80's style.
Hawthorne Waterless Cookware - 2qt. - Stainless steel looking with black lid knob and handle. Seems sturdy but looking really worn.
Are these give away or donate pots?
The enamels you might try selling on E-bay, I'll bet there is someone out there lookng for those to complete their set. Donate the Hawthorne, get a receipt.
Keep San Ign and JMP; donate the Hawthorne. You can easily screw the handles back in the JMP.
And, I bet you'll love cooking with your Grandmother's pots, as the years go by. I do.
They'll boil water a little faster than heavier stuff, so keep one around for when you want to make a cup of tea. Also, the smaller ones are a good way to carry water to your plants. Otherwise, give them to the Salvation Army.
