Buying a new set of cookware

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, first post here, in the past i lurked on the knifes forums and it really helped me pick a nice set of knifes, now I want to buy a new set of Pots and Pans, money is not really an issue but I do have a small issue, I live in a place called Malta (its a small country just south of Italy) and All-Clad and other known Brands on this site do not have any distributors here, call me stupid but, before I buy a new Pot or a Pan I would like to look at it and feel it in my hand, these are the only Brand i could find that a readily available here, Tescoma, Bialetti, Moneta, Alessi, Scanpan, Silampos, Agnelli, Pademo. Anyone has any recommendations on any of these Brands? I am looking for a normal day to day frying pan, a non stick pan, and a couple of pots preferably that last for a long time. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sorry you have not had much response to your post we are mainly an US based community. I am not really familiar with the brands you mention however being so close to Italy can you take a quick trip there to purchase some quality cookware. Pretty sure you would not have much trouble finding something there. What about Amazon does it deliver to Malta?

 

@ChrisBelgium this post seems like more in your neck of the woods any brands you would recommend that are available in Europe? Only one I am familiar with and have used is Sitram (France). I was very happy with the quality of the cookware and it was reasonably priced.

Thanks,

@Frizzly It surprises me that you don't mention Lagostina, probably the best known quality cooking gear in Italy, also widely available all over Europe. I have a large Lagostina cooking pot that I'm quite happy about. Especially since it was one of the very few (expensive) pots that I hadn't to throw out since I switched to induction!

 

Also, I recently bought a few Le Creuset 3-ply pots from their "Magnetik" line. Conceived for induction, but they go as well on other heat sources. I absolutely love these pots. But when buying pans I prefer the Demeyere 7-ply pans made in my own country. Quite expensive but they come with a lifetime guarantee and 5 years on their non-stick versions.
