So much for saving ...

Paderno has taken over a local arena and filled it with kitchen goods.
Yes, I know I should have stayed away but ... $194 later, I have some beautiful things I needed and wanted for quite some time. I got a combination stock pot with two different sized steamers, which means it can make anything from steamed vegetables to spaghetti. While the steamers are a lovely extra, I didn't have a stock pot and needed one so I am glad to get everything for $54, from $159. Everything's stainless steel. I got a set of three stainless steel mixing bowls for $19.99 from $45, a stainless steel travel mug for $2., really nice tea towels for $3.99 from $12.99, steak knives 2/$1.00 and yes, a Keurig mini brewer for $69. Considering I've never seen this for less than $100, I thought this is a great deal. I got a box of English Breakfast tea k-cups for $10 and a box of Green Mountain cocoa for $10. I've had a cup of tea and a cup of coffee (10 complimentary ones are included with the coffeemaker) and both are great. It's so quick too.
Definitely no regrets on my purchases. Which is good, because I won't be spending for a loooooooong time!


  1. Can't go wrong with shiny Paderno pots.
    We purchased a whole set and I'm loving them every day.
    Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
    Actually I did a whole post on them if you are interested.
    Happy cooking and bon appetite.

  2. I am interested in your post on the pots - can you send me the url or the date? I'll give it a read!

  3. Hi, Elizabeth,

    The title of the post was "Shiny New Pots!". I hope you enjoy it.

  5. You got your Keurig machine at the Paderno sale? wow. I should check it out next time it comes to Moncton!!

    I love Paderno stuff too...

  6. Yep. I knew I was in trouble when I realized they had filled an entire hockey arena with kitchen stuff, including tons of KitchenAid, Paderno and others of that ilk. And I thought I would just get a new stock pot. Sheesh ...
