Falk cookware decisions... replacing old cookware set, I want opinions.

wabi | Aug 20, 2012 07:13 PM

I am thinking about making a quantum leap. I love to cook, and love great cookware, but am seeking advice on a sizable purchase of new cookware.

This is where I am... I have at my core of cookware, a 30+ year old set of Calphalon cookware. The old anodized aluminum heavy duty pots that I bought so many years ago and have served me well. The pots are well worn, and all of them have the anodized lining worn off, with bare aluminum exposed. While not proven...I am cautious and hesitant about all of that bare aluminum. Dont get me wrong, the pots have served me well. What I use of these pots mostly are the sauce pans, a sauté pan, and fry pan that I use largely to roast chickens in.

I have several carbon steel woks, some Costco generic non stick fry pans, and a whole slew of cast iron and DeBuyer fry pans. I have several Staub cocottes as well for my stew/chile/pasta sauce needs.

I want to replace the sauce pans with Falk pans, and perhaps the saute pans with Falk pans and want some advice on what to buy. This is obviously going to make my credit card groan, so I wanted some advice on what would be an essential set...what I should buy to make the perfect set of cookware.

I'm willing to cry once buying it, rather than live with regret.

Suggestions about a perfect set of cookware from Falk?

Thank you all in advance for your opinions.
