Non Cc-Able Cookware

19 posts in this topic

I bought a pasta maker looking at making my own pasta. My family is not gluten free so i was looking for a safe nonporous cutting board. I went to the biggest cookware store around here and everything was plastic or wood which can get knicked and hide gluten. Anybody have any advice as to where i could get one? Thx guys

Oh gosh, I was just reading a thread I think yesterday where IrishHeart provided a link for some cutting "mats". I could never find the thread again. I'll see if I can get IH to pop in with the info.

Wood is porous by nature, and can not be shared. Plastic is not porous, although it can become damaged through scratches--as can metal bakeware and porcelain. If it is in good condition, I would continue to use it. If it is damaged, toss it. This applies no matter what it is made of.

Metal wire colanders are a special concern. Even if they are not damaged, the points where the wires cross pinch and can trap food particles.

Here's the cutting mats. I have gotten them at the Dollar store, Walmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond, etc. if you cut meat on them, they go in the dishwasher. You can curl them a bit to pour your cut veggies Ito the pot. They don't last forever. But they are cheap and fit in a suitcase.

At my house, we have a black cutting board for gluten bread and sandwiches. And red ones and some of these thin ones, for fruit, veggies, meat, cheese....all the gluten-free stuff.

I have issues with a shared kitchen and no one respecting my stuff. I bought a glass cutting board at Wal-Mart and hate it, but it's the only one I won't have to replace every time someone does something stupid.

I was going to suggest glass. It's heavy and cumbersome, but safe. You can put little rubber feet on the back or use that rollup waffle-looking silicone/rubber mat stuff to hold it in place. Oy, I need to get a cutting board too....

I waswondering whether a granite or marble would be good because i could also use it as a baking stone. I got a bunch of cookware at the store and its expensive so if i could kill two birds with one stone it would be nice. What do you think?

Yeah they had glass cutting boards at Bed Bath and Beyond and Wal-Mart but they all had ridges and i wasnt comfortable with that. My mother and father pretty much dont touch my things but my brother recently moved back in and he is....well....he is a sloppy inconsiderate young male what can i say

You're still cracking me up.

But on a serious note, the granite & the marble are both porous even though they are stone but if no one else used it then no problem.

The glass cutting board I have is only smooth on one side, the other side is lightly textured. It's still super easy to clean, I've never had to scrub it and I've occasionally let it sit a day or so before washing it. (I still hate it.)

Yeah i didnt think to check the other side oh my poor gluten-fried brain. I will go back and buy one tomorrow or im gonna starve. Im having those gluten hangovers where i feel like i could eat anything in the house. Im surprised i havent swallowed it whole like it were a gingerbread house. I think if i told somebody i was preggers they would believe me!

Well, it seems "I am late, I'm late for this very important date...." (anyone get that reference...?) :)

but I see my friend, KAREN has answered the question and since SHE is the one who told ME about them, it is only fitting she has replied here.

I love those flexible cutting boards!!! Great for travel and cheap enough to replace when necessary.

It's a hassle but you could keep all your stuff in your room & take what you need into the kitchen, use it, wash it & put it back in your room.

As far as my own food im just gonna hog the fridge im the only one who doesnt eat nothing but prepackaged stuff anyway. I gotta admit i cannot wait until i move out!

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi!  I know I'll never forget the day I was told after an endo- and colonoscopy that I indeed had celiac disease.  I immediately went to a Trader Joe's grocery store and bought some gluten-free things to eat. about a month later I had a Total meltdown in my car outside a grocery store---feeling So Sorry for myself!   I cried and said I'll Never to able to eat what I want to again! that was 10 years ago and gluten-free foods have come a long way.... I love having a gluten-free everything bagel and delicious gluten-free 'Oreo cookies'----neither of which there were 10years ago. Everyone who has responded so far have Great Tips!  The best news is that your Diet will cure you!  I do not know of any other condition where this is true!! BTW---some of your friends and family Will understand and will make sure you aren't hung out to dry foodwise........and others just won't/can't understand and will think that just avoiding bread is enough..... Be kind, but don't risk your health to be nice to someone who forgot or doesn't understand. keep reading!  Keep trying different gluten-free foods to find what you like!   Best wishes!!  
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      It has never even been turned on. As I recall, it is capable of milling oats as well as popcorn. I don't know about coconut or other nuts but I can find out.
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      The very first question is.... Was that Retsel grain mill used for gluten before your diagnosis? If the answer is yes then the 2nd question is can it be COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED and cleaned in every single nook & cranny? If the answer to that is no, then you can't use that grain mill because you will be continually cross contaminating yourself.  3rd question: Will that mill do things like coconut? The grains that are oily. Some mills won't. Better check that out. I got a NutriMill & it can not do oily grains or things like coconut. No oats as they're oily, same for nuts. Rice flour it does a great job on & gets it as fine as I can buy it.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Boy, you've sure had a rough time of it! My heart goes out to you! I love your positive attitude about coping until your villi heal more. THAT is your greatest ally in this journey. Okay, now to your problems...... Your gut is still damaged. You aren't healed yet - you know that as you've stated it. It can be really wonky for the first 6 months to a year. It's like being on a roller coaster ride & you can have good days & sucko days & good weeks & weeks that are the absolute pits. My advice would be to ditch all the processed gluten free foods. You'll heal faster & have less problems eating "whole foods" --- fresh or frozen fruits & veggies, meats & dairy as long as you can tolerate it. Forget the corn flakes & rice krispies. They may be gluten free but it's still processed food & therefore full of all kinds of chemicals & preservatives & stuff you don't need. We always tell people to spend at least the 1st 6 months avoiding the processed foods. Time enough to get into those after you heal right? How about for breakfast you have a couple eggs, either fried or pan scrambled. Some fruit -- bananas, pears, whatever floats your boat, a glass of milk, some yogurt. You may need to have well cooked foods for a while & that means mushy veggies as well as fruit. From the sound of the extent of damage you had I would say that's where you ought to be at this point. You don't want to make things any harder on your gut than necessary for the time being. You do have one great big thing in your favor & that's your age. You're young & will by all rights heal up much faster than us old geezers who weren't diagnosed until our 50's, 60's & 70's after a lifetime of damage. Please read our Newbie 101 & follow the links contained within the threads. This will give you a ton of valuable information. Just click on it:  
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Okay, this makes more sense now. Was the celiac test in 2014 part of the checking to find out what was wrong with you which resulted in the Barrets dx?  NO, a colonoscopy will not diagnose celiac disease at all. The biopsies for celiac disease are taken in the small intestine not the colon. You need to get your records, both past & present. If you could post them here then we'd have a much better idea of what's going on and be more able to tell you what you might be looking at. When we say you might not have been given the right celiac blood panel, we mean the FULL, CURRENT panel and not just a primary screening. The screening is good but it does miss celiacs. We have members who tested negative on all but the DgP portions so when one has a situation like yours, you need to cover all the bases & have the complete panel done. Here it is: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG   If you post your results on the blood work make sure to post the reference ranges listed because different labs have different ranges. It would be imperative to know if the doc took biopsies for celiac when he was doing the endoscopy. How many & where exactly from? Some docs just rely on visual & that's not good enough to dx celiac disease. Biopsies are the only way.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
