I am getting new cookware this weekend, my family is buying it for Christmas due to a sale, but I don't know what to get. At first look, stainless EmerilWare is what I wanted, and may still be. Thought about Calphalon One too. Apparently All Clad makes Emerilware and the stainless version may be the same as their copper core stainless lineup with a different stamp on it, I'm not sure. It sounds like I shouldn't get a full lineup of no-stick, but I really don't like using a ton of oil for health reasons so at least a stick-resistant setup would be nice. I have a stainless fry pan right now and it just sticks like crazy, but it was a cheap pan and All Clad may make better stuff. Anyway, I've never cooked on high quality stuff so advice would be nice. I have read some of the articles but am still lost. Basically I just want something that lasts, something that doesn't stick too bad, and something that will look awesome when hanging from this 48" commercial pot rack in the middle of my kitchen.
