I am a self-taught homecook and by no means a professional. I have been cooking with whatever cookware I can afford which isn't usually the best by any stretch of the imagination. I really want to get a set of really good cookware, bakeware, and knives. I want this to be items which cared for correctly will last for years. I already have cast iron and while I love it, that's not what I am wanting/needing now. I just want a great set of skillets, various sized pots and pans, along with high quality cookie sheets, cake pans, etc. I don't know much about knives but know that I want good knives. I've read various threads on here about cookware but still am a bit confused on all the different kinds available and the merits of each. While I'd like one really good non-stick skillet, I am not big on Teflon coated cookware. Maybe because I've never had the better brands but I do not want something I can't use a metal spatula or spoon with. Please if you can provide links to help me better understand what's available or personal advice on what works well, I'd appreciate it very much!
