that's funny! My first boss at the factory would come to my machine, and take me to the break room for a 'talk'... (I was the Team Leader), but when we got there, all he'd say was 'buy me a coffee, make it black with 4 sugars'.. LOL that was our 'talk'... I really miss the old guy, not sure where he is these days! But when I made Supervisor, I continued the tradition with my Team Leaders... only I had 5, and we traded lots of coffee and sodas.. good times for sure!

My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

America's Test Kitchen just did a test of bread pans recently and the Williams-Sonoma Nonstick Goldtouch bread pan was the clear winner. It's quite expensive, but ATK said it made perfectly browned bread crusts every time. There was a runner up that was much less expensive ($6.00, I think), but I don't recall what the brand was. I'll see if the ATK website has the info and post it here.

Here is a link to the W-S website:
http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/bakeware/bread-pans-loaf...

**update** Checked the ATK website and found this info:
The $21.00 W-S pan was the winner, but the second place winner (and former winner) is the Baker's Secret, Basics, non-stick large loaf pan that sells for between $5.00 and $6.00 in most every grocery store in America. The Baker's Secret pan browned a little more than the test chef's would have wanted, but was certainly acceptable.

Thanks, Mike! I, too, love the WS, but BSecret is more my price range... The pans I'm currently using are from QVC, Cook's Essentials. They're ok, but I think I'll invest in a couple of Baker's anyway. Part of the issue is mine (operator errors or miscalculation), but ATK is usually right on it. I subscribe to Cook's Illustrated, which is part of the ATK group, and they have very good tests.

Phyl,
It's both; the website is cooksillustrated.com. There is exclusive content that cost $29.95 a year to access, but some of it is free. I paid for access last year, but will probably not this year.

Sorry I didn't get back right away, Phyl! Hubby's been on vacation for a week, we did some road trips, and now are trying to catch up on yard/flower bed work before he goes back tomorrow. I try to jump in here once in awhile, but if I don't keep at it, I'll get behind (again!)
Mike's correct, it is a subscription site, but not all of it. Sort of like Consumer Reports, you can read some of the reports and ratings, but to get the extensive recommendations and such, its a paid deal. But I love the Cooks/ATK site. I've subscribed to the mags for years, they come up with the neatest info on recipes, cooking, why this works better than that, etc. Most people don't get into the depth of cooking that they test on, but some of it is 'well, why didn't I think of that' kind of stuff. I'm one of those people that like to delve into the why/why nots....
They do make recommendations on cooking utensils, making high fat recipes into lower, etc. so if you like to collect lots of info, it's a good site!

I'm glad you had road trips. stay-cations are pretty grand too.
