after the plastic handle on one of my pots caught fire, i've decided that this dollar-store-quality set i bought when i was a teenager (and still shamefully use) are getting tossed today!
i'm looking for a place in philly (center city or close by - thinking of taking out a phillycarshare for this venture) to buy some quality cookware... i don't want the non-stick stuff... i need something i can really beat up and that will last me a lifetime. i already have a really nice cast iron (and THAT i'm keeping!), but i could use a smaller sautee pan, a small pot and a medium-sized pot. any suggestions on where to go, and what (brand, material) to get? fante's and fosters - how are prices?
