For the ladies in your life pretty (and sometimes practical) gifts can help you #win on Mother’s Day.
Treat your in home chef (aka Mom) to a Circulon Symmetry 5.5-Qt. Covered Straining Casserole in Merlot ($99.99; Circulon.com). Or maybe you just want to gift her with something that will take her entertaining up a notch. The Merlot finish offers an instant style update to any stovetop.
This beautiful pot will save her time and stress so she can focus all her efforts on cooking for you (see there is even something in this for you!). With this pot, Mom will transform stocks, soups, and pastas into something delicious.
Made with heavy duty, hard-anodized aluminum that’s twice as strong as stainless steel, the casserole lets you carry it from the stove or oven, directly to the table thanks to its rubberized stainless steel handles.
Added bonus: features a lid with built-in strainer that can be locked into place to drain off cooking liquids or strain soups and sauces.
Serve straight from the pot, and when dinner is done if the pot isn’t empty, put the lid on and put it in the fridge for later.
With the TOTAL® Nonstick System, even heat distribution, and long lasting durability, Circulon is the perfect solution for everyday cooking and cleaning.
Even if Mom isn’t so much of a cook, buy it anyway and break it in yourself with this easy and delicious pasta salad recipe. Make a picnic style lunch, this macaroni salad, sandwiches and some fresh fruit. Throw a blanket down in the backyard or living room and celebrate Mom! When she tells you how yummy your dish was, you can pass on the recipe and pot (wash it first!) to her.
