Buying my water-less cookware from Belkraft International nearly 32 years ago was one of the smartest investments I have ever made. Growing up, I was always surrounded by the wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread, steaming robust stews and soups along with many other wonderful gastronomical memories that my mother so lovingly did day after day.
A friend of mine became a salesman for Belkraft International when I was 18 years old. I invited him over to let him practice his sales pitch so he could brush-up on his marketing skills. It was not my intention to make any such purchase for I was still just a teenager but the product sold it self to my mother and I without a blink.
The grand package I purchased cost me somewhere around $850.00 CAD and it included 5 saucepans and lids, electric frying pan, double-boiler pot, steamer and masher along with the 3 and 6 egg poacher and tongs. A four piece, 4 setting Pirouette china set was included as a free bonus. In a blink, 32 years of happily cooking with my water-less Vacumatic cookware has past creating some of those same memories for my two grown girls.
My own girls are now 20 and 23 years of age and I constantly remind them of the benefits of buying quality cookware. They also like to spend time in the kitchen creating scrumptious dishes to eat. My mother gave me sound advice 32 years ago and I have the same intentions for my girls.
