I am thinking about new cookware and would like to know people options on cookware.
Nonstick Hard-anodized

Starlady, my husband saw a demo at Sam's Club around Mother's Day for a 12 piece set of non-stick Titanware, this is not Teflon. It is seasoned once a month with a tiny bit of oil for 1 1/2 mins. NOTHING sticks to it and there is virtually no cleaning. It is used both on the stove top and oven. Retail $758, Sam's 1 time price $298. It is without a doubt the best cookware that I have ever had, and I have cast iron, Piral, etc. I highly recommend this cookware, and it is guaranteed for 100 yrs.

I thought of you Kelsie when I saw this thread.

Starlady - Kelsie is a wonderful cook. I would absolutely trust her opinion.

There was a rather long and involved thread about cookware awhile back:

stainless steel vs non stick

I would say: Calphalon One if you can find USA made (Toledo, OH). For frying: one cast iron from Lodge is a must, then the rest stainless steel with stainless steel handle from Calphalon One.
One rule has to apply: never ever wash your non-stick coated cookware with any kind of detergent.

Thanks for all your help. I was looking around and heard someone else say the same thing about buying everything stainless steel then buy 1 frying pan or two in nonstick for eggs and frying.

I would love to spend 300.00 or more but that is out of my price range I'm afraid but it does sound wonderful.

Maybe this set then pick up one frying pan then later another?

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00008CM67 More in likely this set and buy one nonstick frying pan for eggs and such

This is the nonstick I was looking at but was totally unsure of it. It is getting really good reviews.

I just found this set what do you think?

I have to admit it is easier to replace a few frying pans vs a whole set.

I purchased the skillet and sear pan from Calphalon Unison Nonstick at Calphalon Store It can go in the dishwasher and is not Teflon. This stuff is awesome! I can really sear things without it sticking to the pan. I paid $100 for the two at William Sonoma.
