I know there was discussion amongst some folks a while ago about good frying pans and I have a question. I am looking for a set of general duty household cooking pots and am not sure of the proper material, stainless with copper bottom, anodized, stainless with aluminum bottom, what have you. From my days as a bachelor I love iron frying pans but am not sure how iron cooking pots perform. I don't need a super high end set but don't want junk either. I am looking to spend about $250.00 for a small, medium and large pot. I don't really need anything for frying pans since for the very things we fry, good or bad, gets done in iron pans. Anyone weigh in on the best materials and/ or sets? I don't want to spend that much on pots if I get the wrong thing. Thanks for any guidance.
