There wasn't anything wrong with my old set of pots and pans YET but we tend to replace them every few years because the nonstick coating starts to flake off. I remember I made a batch of Almond Crack candy once and I saw little bits of black nonstick whatever were floating in the candy mixture. I threw that mixture away, of course. The pan too. It seems very un-green to buy pots and pans every few years, soooooooooo when I saw this stainless steel set in the Sunday Macy's ad, I decided to just get them.

They are purty. 14 pieces. I will still keep a nonstick skillet for eggs and things, but I'm hoping this set will last awhile.

This saucepan is cool because it has spouts on the side and a built-in strainer in the lid! Fancy!

The bottom part is the 3 quart casserole but it has two inserts- one is a steamer and the other is a double boiler. Melting chocolate the right way instead of the microwave, not that there is anything wrong with the microwave, but I can't wait to melt chocolate :)

I also can't wait to follow a recipe and truly follow the instructions of "scraping the brown bits" from the bottom. My nonstick pans never created brown bits. This probably doesn't make sense to you? Oh well :)
