Stainless steel and 'green' non stick cookware?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello! i am new to this forum, I am not a chef but after years I finally decided to buy new cookware (yeeeehh).
Anyway, I know all-clad is the best stainless steel set but I really wouldn't want o spend that amount of money ... Is there anything good but for a more reasonable price?
About non stick, I have some hard idonized pieces but prefer to go green maybe with ceramic or marble?? I have been reading reviews and cant find a brand everybody is happy with .... Suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I haven't been happy with ceramic nonstick. There is a newer sand based nonstick out now I saw at Whole Foods. The surface appears and feels like it would release better than the ceramic, but I haven't cooked with one yet. You can always go cast iron for nonstick in a larger pan. Might want something lighter for eggs though.

As for stainless, if it wasn't for my wife, I would go to a restaurant supply store and buy aluminum instead. Stainless skillets are only good for hamburger helper. Aluminum or other steel pans give a better sear in my opinion. As far as stainless goes, the brand doesn't matter as much as the gauge. A heavy bottom trumps all.

If you have any near you, try a Wednesday morning store for a set. Home Goods or TJ Maxx might have some nice sets at a reduced price too.
