New to 'really cooking' need pot/pan advice
I posted this a long while back and have lost my info. I am beginning to cook a lot more (and starting to enjoy it as a hobbie) and am in need of new pots and pans. Seriously, my nasty JC Penny ones aren't cutting it. What are the pans you can not live without? What kind do I need? Sizes? Brands? I have started looking at All-Clad from Williams and Sonoma, but am not sure if I really need to spend that much. I have heard to go to a restaurant supply store and that would be just as good. True? You guys seem like you are experts so I thought I would ask!
Thanks in advance.
