It's not copper cookware, but I've taken a shine to my Farberware Advantage pots and pans. Brushed stainless may be utilitarian, but I have no desire to see my ugly mug in my cookware anyhow!

Hey Doc, I think your cookware is beautiful! Is it a new set?

Fairly new, thank you! I got them a few months back. The aluminum skillet and nonstick skillet notwithstanding (nor the All-Clad butter warmer!), the set of pans was on clearance at my local ACO for $30. The other pans were all acquired in the last month or so.

My most beautiful piece would be a hand painted tureen from Mackenzie Childs, that we received as a wedding gift.

I too have broken some wine glasses on granite as well as a bottle of wine.....I was opening it & accidentily hit the counter when I pulled out the cork. The bottom broke right off & very good wine went everywhere. It was very sad.

Thanks, I love it I don't know what kind it is - I'll email the kitchen designer and ask. A lot of people have asked me what it is and where it came from.
