"From France they say mauviel France, the pots I've purchased recently say Mauviel 1830"   I've several Mauviel 2.5mm purchased in the last year and I have the same variation in stamps. Same series of 2.5mm. The Mauviel stamp can change font as well.
"I've been collecting the Mauviel 2.5MM copper pots on my trips to France over the last few years"   Mauviel has changed their stamps a number of times. However 2.5mm SS lined is still 2.5mm SS lined irrespective of the stamp. Since you mentioned that you have been buying in France you might want to double check the thickness. IIR many of the Mauviel Cuprinox sold there are 2mm, not 2.5mm. The only difference between Mauviel series of Copper with SS linings other than...

Welcome to CT Amber. It's hard to give advice about efficiency as every kitchen is different. The best advice I can offer is to always be thinking and planning ahead. Be organized, be clean and keep the menu in perspective. Beyond that I think you are right on track as you are clearly thinking about time and motion.     Dave
If you just started your first position as a working Chef or Chef de Cuisine then I'd understand the questions and say congrats. We all start some place. I guess every ones getting so used to fluffed up titles like Executive Chef that no one even stops to think about exactly what that title means any more.  If you are going to tell people you work in a five star hotel then you should know exactly who rated the property five stars. It's a simple question no matter...
