Just Married, Purchasing New Cookware - Le Creuset & All-Clad

optik | Aug 20, 2008 03:18 PM

My wife and I recently married this past June and we are slowly moving into our new house. I love to cook and enjoy being in the kitchen. I currently own a small Le Creuset set that includes: (9 inch skillet, small 2Q oven, small sauce 1.5Q sauce pot, and a 6Q stock pot).

With this we have some old pieces of teflon coated stuff that just isn't fit to use. The Teflon is pealing off and it needs to find its way to the junkyard soon.

We were thinking about adding the following:

All-Clad (Stainless) - Non stock Skillet 8 or 10 inch (for eggs/omelets)
All-Clad (Stainless) - Saute Pan w/ Lid 6Q
All-Clad (Stainless) - Saucier 5.5Q w/ lid
All-Clad (Stainless) - Saucier 3Q w/ lid (or a second 5.5Q)

Le Creuset 11.75 Round or oval Skillet
Le Creuset 7.25Q Round Oven

Does this seem like a decent path? Would you make any changes? We want to buy stuff that will last and that we enjoy to use. I should note that where we live, we use a glasstop electric stove. We have no access to natural gas, at least right now.

Thank you.
