Hi, I was wondering do any of you use the stainless steel pots? I currently have the non stick kind. If you do do you like them better than the nonstick pots and pans? What brand name do you use? Were they expensive?

We have Calphalon stainless steel pots. We have a non-stick skillet that we use, but our pots are stainless and we prefer those b/c you don't have to be as careful about which utensils you use, and there's not the concern about the coating like there is with nonstick (if you've been watching the news lately they are about to revamp how they do it b/c it was not healthy).

Yes, that is a big issue some of my non stick ones are all scratchy. And my big big nonstick skillet that I use for scrambled eggs is about on its last leg lol. So we are definitely gonna get some new pots soon. thanks for that info, I am gonna google calphalon right now.

I use normal non-stick pans. I have used the SS ones as well (my ex-wife refused to have non-stick, it was ridiculous), and I find that they are ok for say...boiling water, but other than that, the food sticks, they are a pain in the tukkus to clean and I just plain don't like 'em. I use plastic cookware (tough molded good kind) and I have no issue with scratching them.

There has been so much about the Dupont Company and teflon that I threw away all my non-stick cookware. Not only is Dupont being sued over Teflon but also for the coating that they have provided on all the wrap papers from the sandwiches at the fast food restaurants. If anyone is interested - I have the articles on that.
