It's time. My pots and pans are no longer viable. The magnalite professionals have served well over the years, but the step kids ran then thru the dishwasher and now they are pitted and leaving residue.

I've scouted a few different options but most of the lesser stainless and copper sets scare me based on the reviews. Some are happy, but there's quite a few pics and testimonials that they easily warp. I'll not mention so as to not influence recommendations.

I'm not opposed to paying for quality, but I don't want to over pay for a shoddy product.

Looking at the Made-In and found Caraway which look really nice and have some bonus items like the rack and lid holder.

So what other brands do you recommend?

I have this exact one. I love it. The only down side is it's pretty heavy and doesn't exactly line up with my stove top. And it can be a pita to clean.

I need to figure out how to best use it in the oven. I think that might be easier than the stove top. The only thing is the lack of direct heat in the oven. Anyone have experience with that?
If you're going to use that cutting board in the oven, you need the heat resistant pad that goes with it.

One thing I didn't notice at first looking at the Tramontina cookware is that there are two varieties. The tri clad bottom, and the tri clad all over. For a few bucks more, I'd assume the tri clad all over are a bit better. The links I posted I think are just for the tri clad bottoms.

i'd totally go with the tri clad throughout. the best thing about multi-clad is the even heat distribution pan and pot.

I do need an enamel one, I've decided.

I've decided I'm going to get their 3 quart pot. However, I'm waiting until I get my points from my CC, to save on it. Also gives me time to make sure it's the best use of funds now..
