I'm not sure what to buy. I am thinking triple layer SS, something like a 10 piece set I can buy at Sears or Target for $100-$150.

Give me some suggestions!

Look at the Hamilton Beach Professional SS set. They're nice and heavy with thick aluminum bottoms that spread out the heat.

If you can stretch it just a tad, check out the Calphalon stainless steel (not the non-stick or coated varieties). Bed-Bath-Beyond runs sales on that stuff regularly, and it is really high-quality; got a set for my spouse for Solstice a few years ago, and I think that in the 33 years we've been together, that's the gift that he has enjoyed and used the most. Worth every penny.

I have Wolfgang Puck SS cookware and a set of Cuisinart nonstick. I also have several pieces of cast iron which I like a lot. Different types for different tasks. I buy a lot at Amazon, great buys. Cuisinart also has a SS line.

Plus you get to benefit from the use of them. It's a win-win.

I agree about Calphalon. It is the best cookware that I have ever had.

You definitley need either stainless steel or something with a non-stick bottom. It's not worth getting anything else, because it will either scratch or rust. Try T-fal, Cephalon, etc. I got a 10-piece set of T-fal on eBay for just $60.

I love to get cookware from Marshall's & TJ Maxx. They carry Calphalon, Cuisnart, Wolf Puck etc. In fact I purchased a 10 inch lodge cast iron skillet and a Dutch oven from them just this past weekend. They have a nice selection and great prices.
