Help with buying Cookware Set

I really need some help in buying a new cookware set. I bought one of Rachel Ray's off QVC and I'm having second thoughts about it. I'm thinking about trying stainless steel instead of a non-stick finish but I have never cooked with it. I'm worried about it sticking when you cook something like soup that you are not constantly watching.

Here's one by a good brand that I was considering.Whatever I get, I want to pay around $200.

I would really appreciate any help. I've never had any really decent pans and I want to make the right choice.

Thanks, Toni

toni, check out the cookware forums on DC. There is a lot of discussion on what's good and not so good. The Cuisinart is a decent set.

before you buy a set of a type you haven't cooked with or are familiar with, borrow a friends or cook with a friend who has something like it to see how you like it.

Enamel over iron pots are great. Mostly Belgian and Switzerland made, what I have. I have a combination of pots and pans. I like USA cast iron pans and I like the European enamel iron pots to go with.
