What’s your Favorite Pot & Pan Set?

cookwear collageI bought a long-coveted Cuisinart anodized aluminum set 5 months ago – and the finish is wiping off the outside – So my wonderful Amazon (mine, because they love me as much as I love them) is taking them back, no questions asked, for a full refund.

This means every pot and pan I have (that isn’t enameled cast iron) is in a box – and I have to buy a new set.  My question? What’s your favorite?

I’m okay with anodized aluminum again – really my only requirements are:

  • Good Quality
  • Nonstick insides
  • Oven Safe

My budget is between $150 – $200 and I need a stock pot and a couple of skillets for sure.  What are your favorite pans?  Are you a diehard fan of one thing in particular?
