Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Just a couple of months ago...
...Beth decided that we needed new pans. The order of the day was a set of [link|http://www.calphalon.com/calphalon/consumer/products/subProductLine.jhtml;jsessionid=U42GREUFKDRWACQHUB2CHPQKA4QGIJCK?catId=CLCat100145|Calphalon One Infused Anodized] cookware. So we now have like 3 or 4 skillets, 3 saucepans, and what I would consider a semi-wok -- they call it the stir fry pan.

This required that we also purchase some new [link|http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/ctli/ctlutli/index.cfm?flash=on&cm_ref=http%3A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/index.cfm%3Fcm%255Ftype%3Dlnav%26flash%3Don%26cm_ref%3Dhttp%253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/%253Fflash%253Don|utensils], as metal utensils are not kind to nonstick surfaces. So we picked up some [link|http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/cw306/index.cfm?pkey=cctlutli&flash=on&cm_ref=http%3A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/ctli/ctlutli/index.cfm%3Fflash%3Don%26cm_ref%3Dhttp%253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/index.cfm%253Fcm%25255Ftype%253Dlnav%2526flash%253Don%2526cm_ref%253Dhttp%25253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/%25253Fflash%25253Don|silicone tongs] (ours are black) and [link|http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/cw166/index.cfm?pkey=cctlutli&flash=on&cm_ref=http%3A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/ctli/ctlutli/index.cfm%3Fflash%3Don%26cm_ref%3Dhttp%253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/index.cfm%253Fcm%25255Ftype%253Dlnav%2526flash%253Don%2526cm_ref%253Dhttp%25253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/%25253Fflash%25253Don|flexible spatulas] along with [link|http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/sku3414927/index.cfm?pkey=cctlutli&flash=on&cm_ref=http%3A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/ctli/ctlutli/index.cfm%3Fflash%3Don%26cm_ref%3Dhttp%253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/ctl/index.cfm%253Fcm%25255Ftype%253Dlnav%2526flash%253Don%2526cm_ref%253Dhttp%25253A//www.williams-sonoma.com/%25253Fflash%25253Don|other nonstick utensils].

Of course, if you prefer wood, they have those, too (see utensils link above, for example).

It's important that you don't store your nonstick cookware directly on top of each other. We use paper towels in between each pan to act as a buffer. If not, the bottom of one pan will scrape off the nonstick coating from the pan beneath it. And that's just bad.

We use thin sheets of packing foam between the ones we stack. Most of the pans have their own space in the cupboard.

Again, we supposedly do everything correctly with our nonstick: teflon or wood utensils, soft sponge to clean, and foam protectors. They still start to degrade.

Shhh! Don't let Beth hear you say that! She's already complaining about how we don't have enough cupboard space. But I don't have a spare $50k to completely remodel the kitchen at this time...

New We have a giant corner cupboard.
*without* a turntable. Only way to fly.

New Got a picture?
Just curious. We have two warped turntables mounted on 90 degree doors and it seems like about 50% of the space is wasted. Is yours something like [link|http://www.oldhouseweb.com/stories/Detailed/13260.shtml|this]?

[edit:] Better linky.

Cheers,
Scott.

Not yet... I'll try to scare one up.

Basically, the cabinet fills the whole corner, and the door is a double hinged door that folds out of the way. As a result, the corner is square, not angled. Inside are two shelves with a square cutout for the door.
