Well, I talked with the wife and came up with a few answers to the questions.
Non stick for the saute pans with glass lids, as for the sauce pan it doesnt matter and I dont care if it has a glass lid or not.
Dishwasher safe is not a concern but would be nice.
We dont need items that match (our plates and bowls are 5 different colors) and weight is not an issue.
We just want some quality stuff, I hate buying things every few years. This will be the first time either of us has bought these items for ourselves.
Hopefully this will help to get a few ideas. I liked what I have seen so far with the links, I have been trying to go to a few stores that specialize in this stuff but something keeps coming up. Hopefully I can get out by the end of Nov. to check some out in person.
