Looking for a lifetime set of cookware

syvmn | Nov 11, 2013 02:36 PM

Hi everyone! This is my first post here so bear with me if I am naive.

My parents have a set of Revere Ware copper clad pots/pans that they bought 35 years ago. To this day I can go over to their house and see my Mom whipping up something fantastic in the same pots that fed me when I was 5. There isn't really anything "fancy" about them, they just are quality pots that have lasted and will last for a long long time.

This year for Christmas I would love to get my wife of 3 years something similar. A set of pots and pans that will last a long long time. To my eye, too many of the sets I am seeing are overpriced "art". Of course they are nice pots that will last a long time but my salary can't pay for a $500 set.

I also don't need a 57-piece set. I would like to get something like 3 pots (sm, med, lg), and a skillet or two.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a high quality budget set of pans?

PS. My wife LOVES the copper clad stuff
