When to use stainless steel, vs non-stick vs cast iron?

Hello food lovers!

I just splurged on my kitchen and got a stainless steel cookware set that has a copper and aluminum sandwich. I also got a nice non stick 10" fry pan and a Lodge regular cast iron grill skillet.

Now I'm trying to figure out which pan is best for what type of cooking... I already know that the non-stick is perfect for eggs, and that the cast iron grill pan is great for pan searing steaks. What else do you all think I should be using these pans for if anything? When is the appropriate time to use my stainless? Should it be for everything else, or are there times the cast iron or non-stick preform better?

Any advice would be much appreciated!
