Scholarship From Stone Frying Pans

2019 Scholarship Update! - July 9, 2019

After reviewing all the submissions, we would like to thank everyone who applied. There were many great applications and thank you for all your hard work.

We are happy to announce our winner of a $500 Scholarship. The winner is Emily Patterson of the University of Central Florida. You can find her submission here:

Critical Cookware for House and Home

As a longtime single mom and student, I feel confident in saying, without a doubt, that the top three most important pieces of cookware serving households of every type are: nonstick grills, crockpots, and nonstick stove-and-oven skillets. These kinds of cookware save money and time and help produce healthier meals and lives. Ultimately, the more nonstick the cookware, the better—as good home cooking today is more about efficient enjoyment than endless cleanup.

Having owned a nonstick George Foreman grill (in firetruck red) for years now, I must say that I have used it a lot; for burgers and grilled vegetables, shrimp and other fish, as well as steak, quesadillas, and kabobs. The greatest thing about this grill is: it allows me to barbeque in my kitchen, and more importantly when the weather will not permit me to do so outside. In fact, I now prefer barbequing indoors and feel proud that my grill, unlike regular barbeque grills, does not harm the environment and infamously drains off excess fat to be discarded or reincorporated.

The crockpot is another amazing and oh-so important article of cookware to have in the kitchen. Not only can it be left unsupervised as it cooks foods nice and slow and therefore better, it can bring down the electric bill. Buying a low-wattage crockpot is a wonderful way to go, with electric bills seeming to go up and up every month; and many are offered online for a great deal. For busy people and especially single parents, this single ceramic pot is a win-win—cooking big pots of soup, beans and chili, as well as pot roasts all year long, incensing the home all day long.

Nonstick stove-and-oven skillets are equally indispensable, if not more. They are for one, nonstick and more than that, versatile enough to cook on top of the oven as well as in the oven. If the nonstick feature is not enough to make this a critical cooking piece—by its ability to heat up faster and cook with very little grease, and be cleaned with very little elbow grease; thus being a time-saver, money-saver, and life-saver—because it is a piece used in fine restaurants, it gives off a culinary arts feel in any kitchen and an ambiance of creativity for the chef of the house.

With these three critical selections of cookware, any kitchen will be “good to go”—not only for time-money-and-health’s sake but also for identity’s sake; there being a variety of colors and styles to meet the personality and needs of every person and all kitchens. Furthermore, with minimalism being a big thing, keeping a cookware set down to these three creates space, while at the same time leaving room for supplemental pieces desired either for impractical reasons—such as wanting to try out a copper pot or pan or other new and improved ware hot off the market—or for incredibly practical reasons such as needing to feed a growing and/or expanding family.

Congratulations Emily!
