Back in January, Kimiko wrote a post about cookware. She discussed different types of cookware and the pros and cons of each one. We then each talked about what we owned. I had a set of Farberware non-stick cookware that was long overdue to be replaced. See:
I mentioned that I was waiting until I had the money to buy a quality set that would last the rest of my life. Well, that day has arrived!! Thanks to our tax refund, I was able to purchase a new set. Thanks to a white sauce with black non-stick flecks in it, I had not regrets about throwing the old set away.
I decided on the Kirkland Signature 13-piece stainless steel set. It's basically the same set Kimiko discussed back in January. It does have some style variations from her set and slightly different sizes of pans. But it has the copper bottoms and all metal construction.
The skillets didn't come with lids, but the saute lid fits the large skillet.
I no longer have to worry about scratching the surface. I can use any utensil I want! And they hold heat much better than my old set.
Needless to say, I am very happy with my new toys!! We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have quality cookware. It doesn't have to be expensive; this set cost me less than $200.
Of course, now that I have different cookware, I have to go back and do a little re-organizing.
