I've been wanting to purchase some good cookware - something that will last for years, and is good for healthy cooking. I used to have some waterless cookware that I loved, I have one pan left-due to burning things (my specialty) the pans eventually warped, except for one. I don't like using teflon coated, I want stainless. Do any of you cooks out there have a brand that you would recommend?..

I use Calphon Stainless Steel Cookware (bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond). Yes, it's spendy but I think the price is well worth it and everything comes with a great warranty too. )..

I have All Clad stainless and absolutely love it...

I've had Scanpan for years now, lifetime guarantee. Consumer Reports used to rate it #1 but I don't know what they say about it now...

I have a very expensive caphlon set ( a gift from MIL) but I have to tell you....I really really don't like it because it is soooo husband calls me a wimp, but I mean it. They make a lot of different sets, so this isn't all of them, but just be sure to do a test lift...and imagine th pots with the water in them.....

You may want to do one of the try-me pieces in whatever brand you decide to go with. You can usually get a pan for 30-40 dollars in most brands. I know Kohls and Macy's do this all of the time. if you are going to invest...make sure you love it..

I bought a set of waterless in 1969 and still have all of it. I love it. mine is tri-clad on the bottom and I never put it on high or things cook too fast. I really love my set, but they don't make it anymore. I agree with previous, get one pan and test cook with it. note that catalogs, on-line and warehouse clubs sell it for less.

Some of them will have great sales with a set being almost half priced. gail..

I also have been thinking of purchasing new cookware, but never heard of waterless cookware by healthsmart. Is this the brand you have and is this a good price on the waterless cookware set? I did a shopzilla price comparison on that product and this was the cheapest website with that product and they have a good rating with too. Let me know what you guy's who use waterless cookware think..

I currently own a 10yr old ultrex 18/10 stainless steel set from HSN but they are no longer selling it now and one lid handle broke and the grill pan I had also started to chip away the nonstick coating. I have always had to use oil when cooking with this cookware and now I would like to try a healthier way to cook. I also have the george forman XL grill and george forman mini roaster and use them more often but I lightly spray them with PAM just so clean up is a little easier too..

New Cookware could be my goal weight gift to myself!..

I love my Pampered Chef lifetime warranty cookware. Cleanup is super simple. I use my grill pan several times a week and get those beautiful grill marks in my chicken/steak/pork chops. They have a whole line of pans either as a set or sold individually. There are two varieties both the Professional and Executive. Both sets will also go in the oven for those occasions when all 4 burners are being used.

In the summertime I use the 12" skillet and lid to make a cake on TOP of the oven so I don't have to heat the entire house. Most of my customers have a cooking class in order to get a 12 piece set as a benefit for only $285 which are guaranteed forever like I said. You can look at them at or email me at and I'll make sure you get a discount on them...

I love my new Caphalon One Infused Anodized cookware. It was my Christmas present to myself this year. It cost a fortune but it will last forever. It's not non-stick, it's stick resistant. So it browns beautifully and is easy to clean. It's nifty..

And this doesn't matter to most cooks but it looks really cool.When I was researching cookware on Consumer Reports there were also a lot of really good cookware at really good prices. Like the Kirkland ones from Costco and the Emerilware by All-Clad. There were others but I don't remember...

All-clad for stainless and non-stick. My allclad nonstick was purchased in 1996 and I am still cooking on it. The non-stick has not peeled, and I use the small omlete pan almost everyday..

I like the caphalon Anodized, but it is heavy..

I like Le Cruset for stews and soups, but I haven't used it much on Medifast..

BTW, I don't put any of my good cookware in the dishwasher...
