I'd like to upgrade my pots, but don't really want any that would contain aluminum or teflon that might cause health problems over time. I find the subject confusing.

Would these be a good choice:

What do you recommend and use for your family?

It depends on your needs. I have gotten away from the "set" mind and have pots/pans for specific uses.

The light colored coating on the cast iron will stain.

The first link is a good option. I like my stainless All-Clad but it's expensive and if I hadn't gotten a deal on it I would have looked at other stainless 3 ply pots. If you are a Costco member check on their site, even if you aren't it's worth checking and possibly spending $55 on a membership. I bought a friend a good set from them a couple years ago for less than $200.

For the enameled cast iron pot I do like having a 3qt to make rice, quinoa and other grains, it doesn't stick but as noted above it will stain.

I also like having a high quality non-stick 8" & 10" fry pan like Swiss Diamond that doesn't have the same issues as teflon but lets me make an omelet without a bunch of added fat except for the cheese.

Here's the All-Clad:

You are hopping across the grid from stainless and enameled cast iron to aluminum. Personally the available colors are a no go. How do you scrub them after a mishap?

After a good bit of research I went with a set of Duxtop stainless steel which comes at a great price and is very well made. I highly recommend it! https://www.amazon.com/Duxtop-SSC-9P...Cp_89%3ADuxtop

We had to buy all new cookware, because we got an induction stove. We got a deal at William Sonoma on the All-Clad and love it. Its a bit pricey though, but at least its made in the USA.
