My wife is a fantastic cook/baker but she's lacking just a bit in the cookware department.
This summer for her birthday I got her a Le Creuset Dutch Oven & a baking stone from a local boutique-y cookware place. She loves and uses both constantly.
I think she could use some new cutlery and pans - her only real request being "No Teflon, please".
My idea was to add to her LC collection over the years, but that can get rather pricey and I'd prefer to
get her what she "needs" first. Are there some really great non-teflon pans/pots and price-friendly-yet-efficient cutlery for me to investigate ? Some of her girlfriends have told me to check out T.J Maxx, HomeGoods, and Marshall's. She's not a brand snob but I want to get her quality stuff she can use for years to come.
I'm talking about a woman who once dreamt of a Kitchen-Aid mixer and longs for butcher block counters.
Any solid advice will be most appreciated !
