Been researching cookware... thinking maybe I'll start learning how to cook and maybe be healhier that way...

Anybody have experience with either the copper (stainless covered) or anodized??

I currently have an old set of non stick anodized and they are stained on the outside and scratche on the inside and I don't like that. But you can put anodized in the oven as well as on top. Can you with stainless?

Also, does stainless scratch and dent?

Actually NOT getting non-stick either...

specifically looking at All Clad copper core (covered in stainless) or their anodized LTD line.

??

If you want stainless, Farberware is good stuff. I have Wearever now which is teflon coated. I just use wood or plastic utensils and it doesn't scratch. I like the non stick.

Learn to cook...........

I have copper core stainless covered for all of my pots and I love them. I have had them for about 8 years and they are still in like new condition. The thing is with stainless, make sure you get a really highly polished inside as well as outside. Nothing ever sticks, ever and you don't have to worry about teflon flaking of. Good quality copper core stainless should be great. I typically do not put my pots and pans in the oven, I have glass stuff for that, so I couldn't answer how that'd work. For saute'ing pans I have Calphalon anodized and they are also great as far as anything that I have used them for. I don't have problems with stuff sticking to them either.
' Hope that helps a bit.

Farberware is not the most expensive, but quality wise and reputation wise it is hands down the best you can buy.

My mother used it, my grandmother used it, etc. It lasts forever and always looks nice.

I love to cook and have the Cephalon annodized cookwear, and I don't like it, I am going to invest in copper cookwear. They are a must have, they distribute heat evenly, and they look awesome.

I was told to pass on the Cephalon non-stick becasue some people have had problems with the coating they put on pans, and they scratch easier..

Stainless clad copper....only way to go.
Ok in the oven as long as there is no plastic on the handle.
Don't exceed 400 degrees.

I am NINJA....Culinary Genius!!!

I have calphalon and I have some stainless. I like both, I don't like non-stick pans though at all.

A must have is one cast iron pan, they rock! Old is better!

We've got All Clad......never a problem. We just have the stainless, but the way I cook I think the non stick is the way to go except Larry always yells at me when I use metal utensils! <_< I forget what can I tell ya!

I've worked in a kitchen for farrrrrrrrr to long, (Going on 8 years). All the places I worked we obviously used commercial cookware... which if you ask me is the crappiest stuff out there... lol BUT for residential use I would have to say that All Clad is the top of the line. They are very durable, oven safe, and the coatings are long lasting. You are going to spend alot on them, but they will last. In my house we have Calphalon which is another real good brand. Not quite as expensive and still a good product.

Pauline opted for All Clad - nothing but the very best of the best.

What's the first thing you're gonna cook with your new stuff P?

yep...

I ordered some "rocco" cookware through qvc and didn't like the handles... plus they shipped me the wrong color. So I just sent those back today.

Took it as a 'sign' that I should get what I really wanted in the first place. Ordered them online last night.

If you get them online, no tax, free shipping, and depending on the website, and combinations of things you buy you get a ton of free stuff!!

I'm way jazzed!

Shan~dunno on the first recipe. Going to start researching that next! ;-)
