Pick up a cast iron dutch oven. Either bare iron or enamel coated. They come in real handy, especially if you're cooking for a group.

Best cookware i have ever purchased was from Sears triple ply stainless with copper center. Lasted 30 years. If the handles had not come off i would still have all of them. Still have the "high sided skillet" otherwise known as chicken fryer. Highly recommend getting one. Also a wok. I have tried all the brands mentioned above except the highly rated all clad. Right now i have wolfgang puck and am pretty happy with them. Shop online sales with extra discount coupons. Understand all clad only goes on sale about once per year. Good luck bargain hunting!

I am an All-clad lover. Yes, it is expensive, and yes, it should be hand washed...well, the non stick version at least. I have had mine for many years and it looks like new. The warranty is voided if it has gone into the dishwasher. That said, hand washing it is a breeze.

THeir all stainless steel items are superb. They are heavy weight for even cooking. the handles are ergonomically designed for ease of use. Their materials are excellent.

To me, it was worth the money to invest in the best.

I've loved my Cuisinart MultiClad Pro:

My husband mistakenly purchased some other Cuisinart stainless for me (Chef's Classic maybe?), not realizing the difference and it's ok but not anywhere as nice as the multiclad pro - which I use all the time. The negative is it's made in China. If budget is an issue (understanding that All-Clad is very pricey), they are an excellent option.

I also have a couple of T-fal non-stick saute pans which I also like quite a bit. The ones I have are from the Professional series:

I know I could use my stainless for eggs etc but I prefer the nonstick - don't have to think about it and they work great.

LOL. People spend all that effort trying to help out and all for nothing. Hope OP at the very least, read it.
