    Cookware

    Advertisements
    I'm trying to find a set I like that isn't too expensive (preferably 100 or less, but I'm willing to go up to about 150) that is non stick.

    I don't know ANYTHING about all the different brands and whatnot though... does anyone have any suggestions that would fit into the price range? I'm looking for a set that has three frying pans and three pots of different sizes.. but I'm flexible on that

    TIA

    I absolutely love Calphalon..I think someone had them on sale this weekend. I'm not sure if it ended, though.

    Calphalon is a much better quality cookware, but you have to be committed to it; you have to be sure to follow the care instructions and store it *ahem* 'properly.'

    My Tfal has taken a horrible licking, I've abused the hell out of it in both use and storage, and it still works great.

    I have Circulon and it is pretty nice. The things I don't like about it are that you're not supposed to put it in the dishwasher ( I hate washing dishes by hand but it's not too bad if you don't use all of the pans at once! ) and it is kind of hard to clean in the grooves sometimes as well. My husband bought it for me for Christmas almost 3 years ago and it still looks pretty good!

    This is the set I have. It is over $100 but it has been worth it to me to not have to replace pans all the time!

    I find it extremely easy to clean. They cook evenly. They look amazing. I don't do anything special to take care of it either and I've had my set for a long time. I only use nonmental utensils with them.. I also bought my mom some of the pans and she loves them.

    yeah, I would definitely prefer something dishwasher safe... but I AM drawn to all things eco friendly...

    Thanks for the replies guys.... so far I'm still leaning towards Tfal but I appreciate hearing a bit about other brands
