My Freecycle Items today.... (pic heavy)

I got gifted 3 skillets and 2 cookie sheets from Freecycle. I thought worse case, if they were crap, I'd sell them for scrap. Well I am a happy camper.

The non-stick is a Lagostina, and the weight of the 2 stainless ones shocked me. Look at the bottom of them!
A bit of cleaning with barkeeper's friend and they'll be as good as new.

I don't have any of the rimless cookie sheets, so these will be new for me. I can picture the cookies and biscuits sliding off and onto the bottom of the oven though.
The one I think is one of those air-cushioned ones. It feels and looks weird.

Very nice! Freecycle is a great way for people with too much stuff as well as people with too little. I was on it for a while but the volume of emails was overwhelming.

Have fun!

Good haul!
I am an avid Freecycler as I am trying to get rid of TMS. I am freecycling stuff this week and the postings have diminished to a trickle; nothing like in the past. Not to be a snob, but often the recipients of my items don't have an appreciation for or knowledge of the quality of some things like your nice pans.

Good find. I have never had any luck with FS but have had with Craigslist. Both giving and receiving.

Craigslist doesn't go over here, like it does in the U.S.
I've had very good luck with Freecycle; both giving and receiving.

Hubby just asked me, why she was getting rid of her pans. I just wonder whether she couldn't be bothered cleaning them, or she just had no idea of the good pans that she had.

Here they are cleaned up. I had no idea the Kirkland one had copper in it.

I have the Kirkland set. See the link below for details. I bought the set to use with our new induction cooktop. They are solid performers - a good weight, decent thermal conduction and they clean up nicely as you've already discovered.

Wow, what did you clean them with?

Everyone raves about Barkeepers Friend. I have never seen it in our area before, thinking it was a US thing. Lo and behold, Home Hardware had the powder on sale a while back. Rushed out to get it, and that's what I used.

Good deal, Jasdip! I like those kind of cookie sheets too.
They are the insulated ones, aren't they?

One of my pet peeves is people who let stuff build up on their cookware. A lot of my cookware I bought used, so I had to clean it up too.

Nice haul. I bet the owner had no idea how good they are. I wonder if they were cleaning out a house and just wanting to "get rid" of stuff.

I just gave away an exercise bike for free via Craigslist. No one will pay for those things. I was happy to see it go and the new owners were happy to have it.

Holy sparkles!

I don't understand how so much gunk gets on the bottom of pans. I guess it's gas burners?

The Lagostina I've got in the scrap-metal pile. Even though the interior isn't chipped, it's completely lost the non-stick, and everything I've tried, sticks like crazy. It's not worth the aggravation to keep it, when I've got good pans.

Here's an enamelled skillet I picked up a few months ago.
That could only come clean using oven cleaner.
