hirokei, from the link you've provided, it does say that it is non-stick, both inside and out in the product description. clink the secondary link for product description.
sorry i can't be of any help with the farberware. i've never owned any.

I think this is good brandname if you want something on the cheap side of things.

Faberware

I received this brand of pots and pans when I got married and have not had any other since. LONG TIME. What kind of brands do you prefer? I didn't know they were considered cheap. They have held up long time. I was thinking of getting new ones which ones would you recommend? I don't want ones with a non stick coating on them. Appreciate your opinions.

ITK:

My first set of pots and pans was Farberware, it's all I could afford. They are sturdy and held up well. My daughter is now using them.

I switched to different brands of tri-ply stainless steel. I have some All-Clad, some LeGourmet, tramontina and claphalon. They are all good brands and vary widely in price.

If you want stainless steel.

Emerilware is good. 10 piece set for 200 bucks. Buy set now and get a free piece of cookware buy mail.

Kitchenaid 10 piece set from Target for 150 bucks.

YOU DO not need to spend 400 bucks on a set of cookware to have a quality set of cookware.

You can skip the highend All-Clad, Anolon, Calphalon stuff.

Thanks

Pots and pans are always needed today but since it is Christmas have to put it on hold till after New Year. I will take all your suggestions and make a choice. Thanks for all your input. Talking to the salespeople only confuses the issue. What is your thoughts about being on sale, now or later? Guess like me you have to take a chance. thanks for sharing the brands you prefer.

Cookware is always on sale somewhere, so my advice is never buy it at full price.
And only buy a set if you are sure you'll get lots of use out of each and every piece.

Good cookware is worth the $$. IMO it's worth the extra $$ to buy a fully clad pan rather than something like Emerilware, which is not fully clad and for which you are paying a "celebrity" premium.

Discount sites often offer good deals on "cosmetic seconds." That's what I usually try to buy when I can find it.

Amazon often has huge discounts on very nice cookware by the piece.
