    (As far as keeping stainless steel nice and shiny--ATK also tested and found that pans that were stained on the outside heated faster than nice clean ones. Of course on the show the pots and pans are immaculate--do they have people scrubbing for hours or do they use new stuff for every recipe--you know, like they use new balls every game in pro sports.)
    Thats what I figured ^^ and just got the 3 ply Zwilling which seems fine

    I use one of those metal ribbon scrubbers and they come clean real easy

    just give it a good wash with green scotchbrite and you are well on your way to having a brushed pan.

    I didn't think I would watch all of that, but here we are. She's great.

    I'm a big fan of induction. All of the negative aspects she mentioned are true, but in the real world aren't the biggest of deals and can easily be managed.

    The ability to precisely and repeatedly dial in a temperature is the biggest benefit in my opinion. Easy cleanup is the second.

    Grabbed the All-Clad set of anodized for Christmas for Mrs. MNIAW. She fancies herself as quite the cook and my expanding waistline is evidence that she is correct.

    We just got an induction stove and all our 18/10 pots donít work oops. I ordered a cuisinart multi lad pro 8 qt stockpot and will need some smaller ones as well (1.5/2, 3 and 6qt wide). I have all clad d3 skillets but not convinced the premium is worth it for saucepans and stockpots. Am I going to regret going cheaper on these? The pots being replaced are all basic disk clad ones (fiber ware level) that were fine other than they donít work on the new stove.

    Canít speak to Cuisinart, but you definitely wonít regret Tramontina. I replaced several Tramontina pans that werenít induction compatible with some Tramontina Gourmet. The old stuff was great and the new stuff is even better. Excellent finish, at least as thick as any of my All-clad pans and better handles, IMO.

    Looks like they donít call it ďGourmetĒ anymore, but this is one of them: https://a.co/d/hdllkvn

    Incidentally, Costco has a full set of Tramontina for dirt cheap. I actually wasnít a fan because some of the bigger pans warped really easily, but it sounds like theyíve addressed that. They were nice pans otherwise, and easy to return if they donít work out.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    We've been banging on the 3-ply Tramontina pans for about 2 years now from Costco for ~$200. We cook at least daily with them. Except for teaching my wife that no multi-ply pan should go from hot sear to immediate cold water (recipe for warping) -- they've been great. Even heating, good surfaces, nice handles. With a little Barkeepers friend every 5-10 uses they shine up like new.

    For 95% of home cooks I can't see spending more on a base set. Including those on induction as they are induction-ready. Add a cast iron, and a non-stick pan for things like eggs and bobs your uncle.

    Specifically for saucepans, it probably depends on how you cook. If a saucepan is just a smaller pot for boiling water or heating soup, no need for the good pans. However, if you or spouse likes more involved cooking, good saucepans are key - for example, I made a custard base over the weekend and with my allclad can do it straight over low heat so no double boiler, where a thinner pan would have scorched.

    Allclad is expensive but Iíll sing their praise any time Iím asked. We bought ours (with wedding money, so it did lessen the sting) 20 years ago and the stuff still looks new and I cook for 5 every day. I fully imagine a grandchild of mine inheriting it in some decades. Plus, they are awesome at customer service/warranty. I have a nonstick skillet of theirs that, after 10 years, the coating was flaking; one email with pictures and a brand new skillet was sent!
    Why canít I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart?

    I guess I should know better than to click on "life-changing" videos, but I did watch the whole thing. I have the frigidaire that was her low end model and it's quite adequate. Yea the magnets are small, but I can still brown things. It was like $800 all last year and I don't think anything else in that price range would have made me happier (no gas line to the house and no intention to add one). I'm sold on induction, I'll just buy a nicer one next time. All of my pots and pans work with it, mostly cheap cuisinart and tfal, and obviously cast iron is fine. I haven't warped any, but I don't dry-fire them on turbo mode either, so ymmv

    An alternative to this that is made anywhere but China? Otherwise, this is exactly what I want to give thing #2 for Christmas.

    I've got a couple nice sets of Lagostina cookware, but the stuff that gets used the most is the cast iron pans. I have no idea how old it is, but I have four of them and they all came from different grandparents when we cleaned out there houses.

    Le Creuset, Made In, and Staub have similar pans and are all made in France.

    I was horrified to find out that the pan I wanted was made in China. Lodge makes cast iron in the USA. Which is why I started there. Caught it just as I was about to click Buy.

    Wow. This is a nice looking pan.

    https://www.zwilling.com/us/staub-la...r-brands_staub

    He's definitely wants the more casserole oriented, low, covered type pot that you can also bake. He has a tall dutch oven. The Coccette I guess is how Staub spells casserole. This looks like it will last a lifetime.
