Having just joined it might take me a little to get used to this; however I am starting with a many time asked question? What type of cookware is best-I'm interested in copper and an all ply type of cookware-it's a gift for my parents for Christmas. I am on a limited budget, but was wondering about purchasing one or two appropriate pieces of copper (perhaps DeBuyer or the Italian make Paderno) and maybe a beginners set such as Berghoff, Tramontina, or WMF. Also Centurion.
I also looked into Le Cuivre but was told it was third class.
I've read about many other brands but am becoming overwhelmed. I am mostly looking at brands outside the US, but any little known brand you can think of that is good, I would appreciate. We all do a lot of cooking and its time my parents had a good set of cookware.
I can't wait to hear from you. i just need some advice, desperately!
