Looking for quality heavy bottomed stainless pots and pans.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

I am going to order some pots and pans for my kitchen.  I am tired of cooking on warped aluminum.  I am looking for good stainless steel pots which have the heavy bottomed aluminum/copper sandwiched in stainless steel, but not all clad.  20" rondeau, 12" fait-tout, and some others.  Does anyone have a brand name for a good pot that will last, but not bust the budget?

 

Thanks,

 

CDF

Tramontina is the brand I usually recommend. And even their clad ware is quite reasonable. I have a fair amount of it and have no complaints about any of it. Walmart carries a pretty good selection on line and some in their stores too.

If I'm not using all clad I'm using paderno.

Volrath Centurian.  Had some of mine over twenty years, still doing daily duty at the restaurant.  Here's one place.

Second choice (for me) if I don't want to spend a lot, would be Optio.  Nice heavy bottoms and look good.  I use some of them at home, and a couple at the restaurant.

 

Centurian...I love these things.
