I am moving to the states with my fiancé this August, and we have to stock our kitchen upon arrival. I am an amateur cook, cooking almost every weeknight here at home. Since I will not have a lot of time to shop around when I arrive in Minneapolis, I have begun my research on pots and pans online. IAnd I am overwhelmed ( to say the least!). I would love some advice on buying our first pieces of cookware. What is the best value (we are students so we are on a budget)? What should I be looking for? Should I buy a set or piece by piece? Well, thanks!!
