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.

I know lol a lot of my stuff i have hiding in the big hutch in the dining room. The rest is upstairs. 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! It is quite a hassle but it could be a lot worse. I thank God for the provisions of this day including this website and all of you dear friends who sacrifice your own time to help us newbies. I wuv you guys! :wub: Seriously THX!

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
