Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Have you tried a Brillo Pad recently? (giveaway post)


Have you tried a Brillo Pad recently? (giveaway post)

Yeah me either! Why is that? I don't really know, do you? Maybe it's the advent of non-stick cookware? Or my love for enameled cast iron? Or I just don't think of it. But I really should! Brillo recently sent me some steel wool pads and some new wedge edge sponges samples to try out. And to give away!

The steel wool worked brilliantly on, are you ready for this, my clear pyrex dishes! I probably wouldn't use it on my vintage pieces or on any heavily decorated pieces but for clear everyday pans with baked on cheese sauce or chocolate cake crumbs steel wool was a dream. The steel wool pads also whipped my stainless steel into brilliant shape, they have never looked so good, well OK except for when they were brand new. I swear making omelets in a smooth and shiny pan is a great way to start your day!

If you are you want to win your own to try out leave me a comment on this post! Extra entries can be earned by:

  • following along on my mad journey
  • leaving me a gratuitous compliment about how well I'll do speaking at BlogHer Food 10-I leave in 2 weeks!!
  • or suggest a name for the new wonder cat
And as promised wonder cat!

For now she is nameless, we have a few good ideas but nothing nailed down. Help us not name the cat garlic or cinnamon (NOT MY CHOICES) by leaving as your entry comment a great, heck purrfect(sorry) name for the cat!

Peace and Love--



  1. Brillo pads are miracle workers for removing rust stains :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  2. Publicly following hey what's for dinner mom? with Google Friend Connect [Cheryl F. {The Lucky Ladybug}]

  3. What's wrong with naming him/her Wonder Cat, which in our household would soon be reduced to Wunny, a perfectly respectable name for a cat (I read once they respond best to names that end in the "eeee" sound - to the extent cats "respond" well to anything.)

  4. wow.....15 yrs. of being the family pariah for having cats......and finally i either woke up in another dimension...or i have been abducted by aliens...you have a kitten??
    wow...i am sitting here in open slack jawed wordless silent amazement. i think it's name should be "Can't believe it!!" What would ever possess you to get a cat after you harangued me for the last 15 yrs. about how horrible and disgusting it was that i had cats ....cats are nasty...and icky...and now you have a cat?? that is sooooo crazy.
    i must be in another alternate universe momentarily......cause this is sooooo NOT real. wow. mb

  5. Awwww, what a cute kitty! Name her Brillo after the giveaway ;-)

  6. Aww, Martha beat me to it, I was going to say name her Brillo too!! That was the first thing I thought of. I think it's cute!

  7. After reading the comments the name Butter came to mind :)

    Love your blog and recipes!!

  8. I have tried Brillo recently and I love them! I just assumed that my sheet pans would be forever stained, but they're like brand new again. I need to clean my cupcake pan, cause the non-stick spray burns onto the metal and you can't get it off! Love this product.


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
