X-Post on Kitchens - Need new not high-end cookware for induction
We have a new induction cooktop (Bosch 500 series - I am a convert!). I have purchased a large stockpot (Denmark from BB&B) and two smallish non-stick pans (Kitchen Essentials from Target) which all work fine. None of our other pots and pans work, so we need to get something new. I cook regularly, but nothing at all fancy - not gourmet or anything - more like some pork chops, salmon filets, fresh vegetables. I don't want to spend a lot of money, because my cooking isn't worth it and I have no interest in more complicated cooking!
Is there a real difference between IKEA 365+, Walmart's Tramontina, Macy's Circulon Symmetry (or other like models and price points)? We need a 1 qt, 3 qt and 4 qt saucepan, a dutch oven (chili pot), and a large frying pan -- the latter of which is probably the only one where quality makes a difference in the actual cooking.
Thanks for your advice.
