What is the final choice in cooking pans for you?

Had ultrex remember them? from HSN I hear they went out of business. They were selling non stick, then I had one pan, cast iron. Now I have decided to to stay with 18/10 stainless steel from Costco. Done How about you?

  • I have a set of nonstick Farberware, but I would really love a set of stainless steel.

  • I use a mix of stuff. Le Cruset enameled dutch oven (my favorite for stews, curries, pot roasts) Caphalon sauce pans, old well seasoned cast iron fry pans. The Cruset pot was a flea market find, as were the cast iron pans. The other stuff I hunted and got in sales at Macy's or Homegoods.

  • I only use stainless steel because I'm suspicious of non stick coatings. Well, I also have some older pieces of cast iron that have been in my family for a long time and I do use those sometimes

  • Pans as in frying pans. If you are talking about frying pans. I use exclusively cast iron.

    Pot. I do not know who they are from.  bought them either in Walmart or the PX.

  • I have stainless, but the brand is no longer made. They have whistles in the lids to tell if the contents are boiling- and this has saved me some messy clean ups a number of times. I do have a couple small Scan Pans- the ceramic blend, and they are non-stick because of the way they are made. I also have cast iron. But my pots with the whistles are what I use every day.

  • We swapped out most of our Revereware to ALL Clad. I am still not sure about it, but my SO did most of the looking into things before he decided to purchase. We have an Orgreenic pan that I like as well.

  • BTW we kept the Reverware it just isn't in rotation at the moment.
