Le Creuset for pots?

clark21482 | Jan 27, 2009 05:17 PM

I have a set of Analon cookware that has served me well this last 10 years or so. Half the set has been replaced due to the teflon coming off. And all of the pieces are due for replacement as we speak.

In a previous thread I was working through replacing my omelette pan with something other than teflon coated stuff. I purchased 2 enameled cast iron Le Creuset pans. And through some trials and tribulations I have managed to figure out how to cook non stick eggs with them and could not be happier with them.

I would like to start investigating a replacement for my 2 and 3 qt sauce pans (I think that is what size they are). We have 2 small kids, and I must say the things that get made most in these pots is pasta and macaroni and cheese. There are many other things, just that these are the most common.

What do you think? Should I go Le Creuset? Would a good stainless set be OK, or better?

I must say, I have been truly happy and how well the Le Creuset stuff cleans up. Just not sure if I would be doing it justice for something as simple as these needs.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Especially from anyone who owns Le Creuset sauce pans.
