Products, tips and the latest buzz in the world of all things home and lifestyle.



Mad for All-Clad
Calling all foodies: Canonsburg-based All-Clad has added an extension to its All-Clad TK collection that you’ll want for your kitchen. Inspired by Chef Thomas Keller, the new 17-inch Oval Roaster ($299.95) has flared exterior edges for drip-free pouring and an easy-to-clean stainless-steel interior. This also is one heavy-duty pan. The roaster, which is sold at Williams-Sonoma stores, can hold a roast or turkey weighing up to 15 pounds and is oven- and broiler-safe up to 600 degrees. —JS

Living History
A new, 151-unit apartment building along the banks of the Allegheny River combines the history of H.J. Heinz with modern design. Heinz at 950 North Shore was slated to open in February, just steps from the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. The Romanesque Revival building, constructed in 1930, served as the service building for H.J. Heinz Co.’s employees and once included a 3,000-seat auditorium as well as dining areas. The design incorporates many of the building’s original architectural features, says Frank Berceli, president and CEO of Amore Management Co. Amore, along with The Ferchill Group,  developed the $37 million project. Some units will feature two stories, 21-foot ceilings and windows that look out onto the Allegheny River. Rent for one-bedroom apartments will range from $1,180 to $1,905 per month. Two-bedroom units will rent from $1,755 to $2,495 per month. —KP

Get With Knit
Get out your needles — the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet and Creative Arts Festival is back. Now in its 13th year, the festival will be held March 24-26 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Included at the event will be classes, a marketplace, a quilt challenge, a movie room featuring knitting-related “how-to” videos and more. StevenBe, known as a rock star in the knitting world, is hosting the kickoff luncheon, where he’ll help participants to understand how color choices affect their designs. The festival also is hosting the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. All pillowcases sewn at the festival will be donated to UPMC cancer centers for patients, according to Barb Grossman, a festival administrator. —JS

Flower Power
Welcome spring early with the Orchid Society of Western Pennsylvania’s annual show scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 18 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 19 at the Phipps Garden Center in Shadyside. Themed “Orchid Extravaganza,” the free event showcases a dazzling variety of blooming orchids. Society volunteers and expert orchid growers will be on hand to answer visitor questions. There also will be a sales area featuring orchids brought in from across the eastern United States, as well as the “repotting table,” an area in which guests are able to watch and learn as their orchids are repotted. If you want to capture the plants in full beauty — and without the crowds — a photographers opportunity is planned for 9 to 10 a.m. Sunday before the show opens to the public, giving clear access to the exhibits.  —JS
