Let's start with this ... what do you have, what do you need, do you have any preferences (Stainless Steel, Anodized Aluminum, Cast Iron, Enameled CI/Steel, Non-stick, etc.) and what is your budget?

You can find some good quality stuff at WalMart, Target, Sam's Club, Costco, Tuesday Morning, HSN, QVC, etc.

Sometimes a set can be a good thing to get you started and can save you money - sometimes not. It depends on what you have, what you need, and what the set includes.

yup, and also check your area for a restaurant supply store. Professional gear at reasonable prices.

Oh yeah, I forgot about restaurant supply houses, Robo. (I don't know how I forgot since I hit mine practically every weekend - it's next to the grocery store!)

If you get on Amazon and fine something you can usually click on the link that lists the used ones as well as new ones for a LOT less money. I have done that several times. Just look at the ratings of the sellers and pick one that doesn't have ANY complaints but has a long history.

I buy from Amazon.com all the time. They usually have at least one or 2 pieces of Calphalon for $20 every week with free budget shipping. (Be sure and search using many combinations of key words to find the best deals.) Of course, you need to know what you want and what you like - non-stick, stainless steel, anodized aluminum. Also, what kinds of things do you make most often and for how many people? That will help you determine what size pots and pans you need and which things you'll use most.
