Keep the ideas comin’ if you’ve got 'em.
Also, if any of you know any particular places where they’d have good deals on shit like this, please give me some ideas. IE, kohls? Would it be worth looking around amazon for stuff? Think it’d still be worth it after shipping? I’d imagine shipping a heavy pot/pan set, or a crock pot might be kind of expensive, no?[/quote]
I think Amazon is awesome solely because of the system they have in place. You can easily research products and read hundreds of reviews. I’ve been using it to make a decision on my new mini-blender. I also used it to buy my new hand vacuum.
If you really need a new cookware set, you can’t beat the stainless steel set by Cuisinart. 1/10th of the cost of All Clad (I love this brand but it’s $1000 for a proper set) and it has rave reviews. Hopefully I’m not being condescending, but there’s a learning curve with using stainless steel since food sticking to the pans is usually a lack of cooking knowledge/skill rather than the actual pan.
