Which kind of pots and pans do you need? - For a few people a skillet and a saucepan would be adequate for them, but for others like me, I need a lot of pots and pans. My advice has always been to start small. Cookware is one thing that really shouldn't be skimped on: cheap pots and pans are simply not worth it. That doesn't really mean you need to invest a lot of your funds, though; you could find great deals on good cookware at retailers like Amazon, Cooking.com or even at a garage sale.
Stainless cookware is the most common but also the most friendly when it comes to price and qualities. It is popular for its good tensile strength, outstanding resistance to corrosion and non-reaction with alkaline and acidic materials like tomatoes and wine. Stainless steel pans make excellent sauces after sautéing the food. The only disadvantage is that stainless steel does not conduct heat well. It requires a solid aluminum or copper center to make it more responsive to heat. If you want your food to cook correctly, you need to get a high-quality heavy gauge stainless steel with aluminum sandwiched in-between. Stainless steel cookware is easy and simple to clean. You can wash it in a dishwasher and scrape with nylon pads.
The simply Calphalon Stainless product line is designed for home cooks on a budget. This line is made of 18/10 stainless steel and is easy to use and maintain. There is also the Calphalon Everyday cookware that is still very durable, with a non-stick surface. With both of these product lines, it is recommended that you do not use metal utensils with them, or use them under a broiler.
