Need new pots and pans...what to do? I need help!
I am new to the world of actually enjoying cooking. I have been married for almost ten years and received very cheap Faberware coated pots and pans as a wedding gift. These babies are shot. They did the trick for the last nine years, but since moving into a new-to-us home with a fantastic kitchen for cooking six months ago, I have really started to do a lot more in terms of cooking. I am now ready to buy some new pots and pans, but have no idea what do do? Opinions would be helpful. Do I go with Calphalon? Stainless steel? Copper? Kirkland brand at Costco? What are the benefits of teflon? I have heard some bad things about it. Any comments would be helpful.
I currently cook on electric, but when we update appliances in a year or two I will switch to gas. Thanks in advance.
