PMS GOT ME LTD

Many moons ago, Calphalon took some basic commercial cookware, anodized it to keep food off the bare aluminum, they began to anodize them, too. Rather than run in-stock tops back through the manufacturing process, they set them aside for commercial sale. (Don’t nobody peek into the restaurant kitchen to vet the pot lids, no how.)

I ordered a set from a commercial supplier, specifying that I wanted the newfangled top. He called the company, expecting to be told, “Sure. We are the manufacturer. We make the stuff. Of course I can send you anodized lids.” What was he thinking? He was informed, none too politely, that commercial order comes with bare aluminum tops. Period*. If his customer insists on not poisoning his food, he should be sent to a retail outlet. This explains why I heard him shout, “Because this is how I feed my family!” before slamming down the phone.

I was then shown the top of line (LTD), which cost a bit more but required no spacing-out, no stain-removing polish, no belts, pins, or pads.

*Did this bloated bitch cost her employer a commercial account? You bet she did. “Equal pay for equal work”, indeed.
