What's your most used cookware? And why?
And what's the second third and so on most used cookware?
I'd have to say my cookware in order of most use are:
The stainless Lagostina pots for pasta and sauces
Then the cast iron fry pans,
Next the steamers.
The casserole dishes are next for lasagne and casseroles
After that, very infrequently, the wok and the baking pans and sheets.
Why, you ask. I do stove top cooking more than oven as most meals are the ubiquitous quick breakfast eggs, or oatmeal, and lunches of soups, sandwiches, and leftovers, requiring little oven usages. Also I cook several servings of meat, and make extra cassseroles etc, at once, and freeze them when I use the oven. I'm obviously not a gourmet cook, just mostly do average meals and more plain fare. I would like to change my cooking methods to include a steaming oven instead of a microwave for reheating? and a pressure cooker instead of the oven for pork and beef roasts and steamed vegetables. Every toaster oven I've gotten has given up the ghost before I've gotten any value out of it, otherwise I'd try that for some reheating.
