mudbug, the links were no good.

I did a simple search at google.com on these words: cookware reviews
I got only one good link. That is not enough for me, but at least it is better than nothing. I don't even like the small tiny amount of user reviews at some websites as well.

I also did a simple search at google.com on these words: digital camera reviews
I got seven major sites back.

I see so many different brand names of cookware out on the marketplace and I know some of the brandnames to avoid at all cost, but not all of them.

If you have a certain product in mind do a search with the name of the product + review, or rating. Many online shopping sites have user review/rating on specific items.

Broadway Panhandler discusses the pros and cons of types and brands of cookware. Fantes also discusses the types and virtues without brand naming. Both are major suppliers in the food industry, and both sell fine quality products. Both have .com sites www.broadwaypanhandler.com and www.fantes.com

Tried that a bit with some of the brand names of the cookware I was thinking of buying and saw some, but not a lot of user reviews. Not good at all.

Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) rates a lot of cooking related items - everything from pots and pans to utensils and more. The site also has taste tests of various grocery items plus all their recipes. Cost per year to access the web site is about 20 bucks. I've been happy with every recommendation of theirs that I have bought.

I just visited cooksillustrated.com to check something and noticed that they are offering a 14 day free trial of their web site, so you might want to try it and see if you like it.
