    Default Pots and Pans

    I have really awful pots and pans...can anyone recommend any good pots and pans that won't rust and clean nicely...I'm a novice cooker but I love it...I can't afford anything wicked expensive right now, but something that is in the mid-price range would be good for me...or sets where I can buy them one piece at a time or something to that effect.

    I recommend to buy a whole set of pots and pans because it is more cheaper than buying individuals. Also, check for the quality and the price. For me, I use non-stick pan because it is more convenient to use than ordinary pans.

    Try the Teflon ones, they won't rust (not unless you scratch the tefloan coating) and they won't make the food stick. Check for price, if it's more expensive, it's of a better quality.

    I got the Emerilware 10-pc Stainless Steel Cookware Set.

    It's great! I've also added matching open-stock pcs to it to make it a monster 30-pc set!!

    I would disagree with buying a 'set' of pans. Too often you wind up spending money on a few pans that you never use / need. Additionally, there are some that are included in the set that you can spend less money on with just as good results. For example, spending a lot of money on a very large pot when you can get the same results from a less expensive aluminum version at your local restaurant supply house (just google for the closest). With the same thought in mind, you can get great non-stick pans from restaurant supply for a song that last forever. With the money you save there you can spend more on some individual specialty pans such as a dutch oven or saute pan(s) that you would use more regularly.

    Be careful using non-stick for everything as the coating tends to break down over high heat (450+). They also don't retain heat as much as a heavier metal pan as they are typically bonded to Aluminum which can cool off very quickly when food is added to the pan.

    Good luck!

    I use cast iron as well, which is excellent for slow cooking and tenderizing cheaper cuts of meat,
    like pot roasts by breaking down, softening and weakening those tough connective tissues and fibers.

    But stainless steel is good as well. Hard anodised cookware is good also.

    The cheaper painted aluminum cookware sets with Teflon-coated interiors, I would frown up on. These sets, even though the look very attractive, will over time, start to loose their luster and shine after repeated machine washings. No good.
