I have been checking out Demeyere online and sur la table, especially Industry 5 as it is slightly cheaper than Atlantis. The problem is I do not know whether I buy the entire set or just different pieces as and when I find it on sale. Another problem is mostly I cook Indian food and right now I have cheap aluminum cookware from India that MIL brought. I really want to upgrade and convince them that Demeyere is worth it and better than Indian cookware. It needs to be scrubbed by hand to make it shine, dishwashers make them gray. They are against stainless steel, thinking that food gets stuck and burnt easily on it. I want cookware that is beautiful as well as bliss to cook with and clean, something that I am very proud to show when guests arrive, not hide it from them. Every day I make rice and two vegetables or some gravy. Please suggest what size and type (saute pan/saucepans etc)? I had to give up my birthday gift (Macbook pro) in order to bargain for Demeyere! I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
