Question Mario Batali "Italian Kitchen" Cookware

Anyone with any experience with this stuff? I provide the link below not as advertisement, but as research. I've never used it, and just want to see if anyone has any experience with it.

on his show he used to use a mixture of faulk culinair (great cookware) le cruset (also fine stuff) and all clad (nothing wrong there)

I've seen his signature products adviertised and the prices are reasonable. Have not seen them in person. I would be surprised if they weren't good quality. (But I've been surprised before)

I've heard of his cookware, but I never tried any of it.

It has just come on the market apparently at Sur Le Table and another place. It was on a TV show this week-end and it is GREAT looking.

You can see it in person at Marshal Fields.

My 100 lb wife said that if I bought any of that cookware, I'd have to by her a brawny lad to carry it around for her. I personally don't like heavy cast iron enameled or otherwise.

That's where I saw it, and came up with the topic.

Marshall Fields, eh? I may have to check it out, at least to see it. Don't know if I'd buy it, but that's another issue.

I have the Mario Batali 6 qt pot in pesto green. I love it. Great quality. Beautiful 'fit and finish'. It is my most used and most loved pot.

I have Mario Batali's extra-wide silicone spatula/turner and his silicone pastry brush. Both in brown and orange colors. I've found them very useful.

I also got interested in his cast iron panini grill pan/press in the store but passed on it for now.

It is as ismple as 1, 2, 3... I fyou have money to spend on all this fancy Brand name stuff, get it. Just like any other stuff. If not get something simple. My grandma had 2 pots and one frying pan. she used to have people over at her house almost on a daily bases. Her food was amasing. Add to it that her oven did not have thermostat, only thermometr.

I have tons of pots and pans. But i doubt I'd ever be as good as she ever was.

It's only money.
