    Hi,

    I'm moving in a month and I need to purchase all new cookware. Does anyone have any recommendations? Does anyone have the cookware they sell on QVC or HSN? Non-stick vs regular stainless steel?

    I plan on doing a lot of home cooking as I'm trying to clean up my diet with fresh ingredients.

    Thanks for any advice.

    ^_^ I think that Rachel Ray has a very nice cookware set on HSN or QVC!

    I’m not a real cooking person (ramen or tuna helper is gormet to me lol), but I love my DH’s T-fal set for the cleaning. No matter what is cooked in there, I can pretty much get it off with a sponge. Sometimes I have to do a light srubbing with the green pad, but I’ve never had to use a brillo pad on it (plus, it’s not recommended).

    DH is the chef, and he loves the set. He bought it when he was living on his own before we got married, and he says there’s some kind of guarantee where he can send a scratched pan back (although he hasn’t had to yet). They’re kinda expensive, but he got it on the hook up from one of his air force base buddies.

    I brought a Calphalon set, it's non-stick. The heat gets distributed evenly and they have a variety of pots and pants. But they are a bit on pricey side for a single pan or stock pot.

    CP,
    You are so right...which is the same for La Creuset cookware. One small pot can set you back quite a bit. I got turned on to these when my nail tech sold me her late mom's set. You want to talk about cookwear that can withstand oven temps, can go from stovetop to oven without a problem, and whether you saute, simmer, boil or fry delivers each time. For the first time, I could cook my collard greens in a pot and know that they would come out tender and delicious. You can't get that with an ordinary pot!

    You know, I've seen Calphalon and La Creuset at Marshalls on occasion....matter of fact I stopped by today, after work and saw small sauce pans and frying pans. Thing is, the tops and bottoms are sold seperately...grrrrr. OH!! also, I purchased another Calphalon santoku knife. Those knives are DA BOMB ($15.00 for a 7" knife) and a 14" silicone splatter screen for the La Creuset pan w/o a top.

    I have to agree with the Calphalon I have had my set for 8 years now and it stills looks and cooks as when I first bought it. I paid $200+ for mine and I got a six piece including tops and I am going to get another set soon.

    For all the Calphalon users, do you have the non-stick, the stainless steel, or the hard anodized. I think I'm leaning towards hard anodized.
