The downside to Le Crueset cookware is that it is considered to be a bit on the expensive side, but most considered the cookware to be worth the price. A 5 ½" Round French Oven is about $249 and a 7 ¼" Round Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Over is approx. $328.
They say that if created under the right conditions anodized aluminum can be as tough as a diamond. Does that make hard anodized aluminum cookware a real gem? In this cooks experience, definitely yes. Anyone who cooks everyday can be driven crazy worrying if they are using the right cooking tools, stirring their sauce often enough so it doesn't stick and burn, and whether they are moving the cuts of meat adequately in the saute pan so no one piece is in the hot spot for too long. If you cook you have been there. And what cook hasn't had the embarrassment of having guests spot little pieces of burnt sauce or even worse bits of the nonstick coating from their pan, staring at them from the top of your entree. It doesn't have to be this way. Many types of quality cookware can solve these problems but for the average home chef, hard anodized aluminum cookware is the cookware of choice.
If you are looking to purchase stainless steel cookware set, I would recommend that you choose a set that will meet your needs, yet does not break the bank. Do not compromise your needs and expectations because a cookware set is a little higher price than a lesser priced set that is not what you really want. At the same time remember a higher price does not always equal higher quality. Prices can vary for the same cookware sets through different suppliers.
