I have the pampered chef ones from a few years ago. got them the same way as adrians mom. I also have ss from Princess House. I was a dealer for years and collected them, little by little. Also bought them for dd when she married 5 years ago.

just purchased a set of Rachael Ray for fDIL from amazon. took the free shipping option, but it arrived within 3 days. it was $147. (it's $199 at target). I thought I got a good deal.

also got a Kitchen Aid mixer for her- $299 with a $30 rebate and free shipping.

I figure I saved at least $100 shopping online. More time for me to sew the table runners for shower prizes. :)

My sister gave me a set of stainless steel from JC Penney several years ago & they still look like new! I looked on their website, but didn't see the exact ones, but they do have many different styles & brands & the prices seemed reasonable to me.
Good luck! :D

I've stopped using my non-stick and anodized pans. They can be very unhealthy. I've also stopped using non-stick bakeware, and use stoneware (Pampered Chef) instead.

I have replaced my pots and pans with copper bottom stainless steel and the old reliable cast iron pans.

I use a Revere Ware copper bottom set and Club aluminum dutch oven (wedding gifts from May '70) plus 2 cast iron skillets. The only thing I've been wanting to add for years is another 1 quart saucepan.

I bought a set of Faberware pots/pans in 1978 and still use them today. They are excellent quality and are meant to last. I have bought a couple pieces of Faberware non-stick since then and love those as well. I also have several pieces of Pampered Chef stoneware, which are great because nothing burns on them. Ask me how I know! :D :lol:

When I was in high school in the 1960s, my DD sold stainless steel cookware, and did the in-home demos where he cooked a meal for the prospects. My Mother used his "sample" set for many years, and when she died in 1977 I wound up with it. Still cooks good, still looks good, after all these years. The only problem is the 12 in skillet: food sticks to it if you fry on a high heat. My cookware has traveled many a mile, but has lived in one spot for the last 24 years.

I really like stainless, although it can be kinda heavy. Just make sure you get a heavy gauge stainless so things don't burn, but clean up is easy.
