pots and pans that will last a life time

paulpaul | Sep 29, 2012 03:45 AM

Hey hey, I've been lurking for a little while but I decided I'd finally join since I'm genuinely getting interested in cooking and I have a ton of questions.

recently I've picked up a couple of cast iron skillets which are amazing. It's really nice to know that they could last my whole life if I take care of them.

Now I'm looking for something similar for a nice sized pot. Not cast iron, but Is there a type of pot out there that that I can easily boil water in at high heat, cook soup in, make stocks.... without worrying about chemicals and wear & tear?

I'm really looking for pots that'll that I'll be able to use for the next 50 years. Is stainless the way to go?
what are some good sizes that'll come in handy over the years for a small family?

are there any other types of pots or pans that i should think about getting?
