what size Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven?

Hi, I want to buy a Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven but because they are so expensive I can only buy one. I've waited a long time and finally I'm going to take the plunge and do it. I know I want the yellow color, and heaviness does not matter because I'm going to leave it on my stove top for display when I'm not using it, so I don't have to lug it in and out of my cupboard.

Elegant hanging spoon snapped. How do I find a new one?

A spoon was broken and there was much sadness. An old stainless steel serving spoon that hangs very elegantly on a pot rim finally snapped. It had been hanging on literally and figuratively for some time but now it is no more. I cannot manage to find a similar one to replace it. [more inside]

Looking for this kind of Salt and pepper holder

I bought this Salt & Pepper set at Bed Bath & Beyond a while back. I love the metal holder they come in. I run a hot sauce company and all my bottles are 5oz woozies, and they fit perfectly into these holders. Very snug and just look great. I have looked all over the place to find them where i can buy them wholesale and in bulk. The company that makes this product has a website that hasn't been updated in ages and emails do not get returned. Plus they are based out of Italy, so that is an issue as well. I have seen similar type products with square openings, or opening that are a little too big, but none that are as perfect as this one......Any suggestions on where to look? Primary need are circular opening that will hold a 5oz. woozie bottle. Much thanks!?

Looking for these dining utensils made from large nails

Last month I had dinner at a restaurant in Rome that used these utensils. They seem to each be made from a single, large nail. I've tried to find them online, but have come up empty. Maybe the hivemind has some ideas?

Mystery Implement, kitchen edition

Going through our kitchen gadget drawer, we can across what looks like nothing so much as a wand. It has a label on it that says it's from Scotland. What is this thing?

I want to set fire to my kitchen utensils

Kitchen Organization 101: Is there any obvious and efficient way to organize the drawer in my kitchen that holds all my big/weirdly shaped utensils (ie. mixing spoons, measuring cups, spatulas, pastry cutter, salad server, tongs, etc) that DOESN'T involve having them in a holder on the countertop? We don't have the counterspace to spare. [more inside]

Why do restaurants expect people to reuse their dirty utensils?

At many restaurants, after the starter course is finished, the waiter will remove my dirty knife and fork from the plate, and leave them for me to use with my main course. I dislike this, and usually will ask for a clean knife and fork for the next course. My question is: what is the thinking behind this? The added cost I would think is trivial, and it just seems really weird to expect people to eat a new course with food from the last course on the utensils. Is there some financial aspect to putting more utensils through the dishwasher that I'm missing?

Looking for el Bulli utensils in the U.S.

Anybody know where I can buy the Faces - Ferran Adria Collection in America? I'm looking for three specific items, and would like to avoid paying the exorbitant overseas shipping charges associated with ordering from a foreign source. Online sources preferred, but even a bricks and mortar store that I might be able to call and order from would be fine. Thanks in advance

Great Chef's Knife

I'm looking for a great chef's knife. I'm getting married soon so we're registering for gifts. My fiancee and I already have a decent set of knives, but I want a really fantastic chef's knife. While poking around on Alton Brown's site, I noticed his glowing shill endorsement for Kershaw Shun knives. Does anyone have any other opinions or recommendations?
