need help with cookware set up on a budget

hi all
im not very knowledgeable with cookware surfaces. need some help.
first thing is budget..while i would like to spend hundreds for a super nice set of goods, i cannot afford to.. =(

so please help me decide on how to build my set on a budget.
for frying pans (eggs, fish): non stick? hard anodized?
sauce pans for soups, etc: stainless?

i was going to get just a 10pcs set of hard anodized non stick, but i keep reading everywhere that they dont last, etc.

but what worries me about stainless is how food sticks, clean up without dishwasher, etc.

should i just go with a nonstick set or get a stainless set? im thinking of a 10 pc set for less than $200.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
