Costco cooking tools: Pass/Fail
« on: December 21, 2015, 09:14:08 AM »

I thought I'd start this thread because every time I go into Costco, they have new or inexpensive cooking stuff. I've found a few things that I like and dislike. I've seen the harbor freight pass/fail threads on other forums and found them useful. (1st on left)

I will start with:
Tramontina Santoku Knife: Pass
These are under $20 usually and come in a 2-pack. I sharpened mine up and they easily take an edge. The intermittent use they see has not dulled the edge.


Tramontina paring knives: fail
These come in a 4 pack and usually are also under $20. They are just too flimsy and awkward for my taste. They use the same steel as the Santoku, so I suppose edge retention is also good. I just don't like them and will pull out my nicer paring knives every time. (2nd and 3rd from left)

So what have you guys found?

The Costco brand teflon lined cookwear is nice. 

We had calphalon before.  They were getting old and we snagged the KS set.  Had them for 5 years now and still look pretty new.  Small skillet gets used at least once a day.

Costco has 30 oz tumblers 2 for $20. Comes with lids and 4 straws. Awesome price for some Yeti knock offs.

Calphalon has a lifetime warranty. You can send them in and they will send you new ones.
