Yeah, I just realized this is my first SS piece. This should give me an idea of whether I should get a SS skillet or other SS pans. Cool!

I think I have my "stock" of stock pots. I have two Revere Ware ones I've had for nearly 30 years. One is a 12-quart. The other is a 20-quart one. I like them both equally, but my favorite pot for making soups, stews, etc. is either my 7-quart or 10-quart oval Le Creuset Dutch oven. I opted for the oval shape so I could put things like a large ham, beef roast or whole chicken to roast, etc.

I use the Le Creuset pieces all the time and they are perfect for split pea soup, which is one of our favorites.

As for purchasing cookware, I've never been in favor of buying sets. I think is makes more sense to buy the pans you will use most often. Instead of spending a lot of money on a set of pans that might include some pieces you will never use, you might want to spend the same amount of money on a couple of really, really good pans. Just my humble opinion. However, It's also my humble opinion that we can never have enough kitchen "toys."

I think that's good advice. Right next to the 8 qt set I got was a 3 piece set (8,10,& 12 qt) for $20. I figured for $20 it couldn't be very good, plus I wanted the pasta insert and steamer basket. Better to have one good pot than 3 crappy ones.

I also have a 12 and a 20-quart stock pot, but was wanting the 8 with the pasta insert... This one looks like a good enough deal to go ahead and get the 10 instead.

Well, guess I'll have to get cooking and post a review then, eh?

This is like mine. The tri-ply part is on the bottom.
