I currently have a set very similar to this one, except instead of a saute pan mine has a 2 qt covered saucepan (and my large skillet is long gone): http://shop.farberwarecookware.com/Co...
It is coming up on 5 years old and the nonstick surface is all but gone in all but the medium (2 qt) saucepan.
I have this Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned Combo Cooker (purchased January 2013): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000...
I love the Lodge pieces, but I still haven't gotten them seasoned well, but that's another post in itself. Let's say for now that I am definitely keeping them. They brown meat better than anything else I've ever used or seen used (I grew up in a family where no one really *liked* to cook, whereas I *love* to cook!).
So I'm in the market for replacements for, well, all of my nonstick pieces. I really only need a large-ish stock pot (mt 5 qt is just a little bit too small sometimes), one or two saucepans, a saute, and a skillet/fry pan or something similar -- I think.
I'd definitely like to avoid Non-stick, but other than that I don't have strong feelings. I don't have the money for All-Clad, but I think that type (SS) may be what I'm leaning towards.
Suggestions for individual pieces, please?
