I am new to Chow hound but have been following your cookware discussions for several days. I have so many brand names in my head I feel like I'm drowning.
Anyway, I want to purchase some new cookware for my parents-preferably European. I like the copper cookware but is pricey for me, but know there are other brands that are less expensive, but am not sure of the quality.
My thought is to purchase some copper pieces and then some good multi ply cookware.
I was wondering what the thought is about the Berghoff line and De Buyer.
I have more examples in my head that I have come away with in my research but cannot think of them.
My parents and I all cook-healthy, cultural, etc. and our cookware is used very hard. However, we buy cookware that does not hold up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if there is a brand that is good but little known. Sorry for the length-I'm desperate.
