We’re registering soon (starting today) and I was hoping someone has recommendations on pots and pans. I know there have been tons of posts already.
I have up until now had stainless steel pots and stuff like frying pans and skillets have been nonstick. I know about the whole teflon issue (now). If you get pieces that are nonstick anodized that means they don’t use teflon?
I know All Clad and Calphalon are good sets to register for. What about Le Creuset? I have heard good things about them as well.
Also, BBB has this line called Ecolution that I’m totally unfamiliar with. It’s supposed to be PFOA free with is I guess 100% safe for the environment. I think Cuisinart also sells a line that is PFOA free at BBB and I didn’t know if that was worth looking into. I think there are a few other lines that carry PFOA free pieces.
Also, is it a big pain to not be able to put certain pieces in the dishwasher? We don’t have a dishwasher right now so it’s not really an issue for us but hopefully some day.

@Cem0930: Le Cresuset is heavy, but it is nice and worth it. It will last you a life time. You really should get 2 dutch ovens – one really big, one medium.
I would recoomend registering for tri-ply stainless cookware. Cuisinart has a good one called Tri-ply french classic, which is just the same as All-Clad, but much, much cheaper.
If you’re really into pots nad pans, register for Mauviel Cuprinox copper cookware (it is my dream). You’ll never need another pot.
But all in all, I’d register for a couple LC dutch ovens and a tri-ply stainless steel (or copper…) pots/pans set.

I want to hear people’s recommendations too! I registered for the nonstick Calphalon. I looked into the GreenPan option, but it’s gotten SO many bad reviews.

I love Le Creuset I also love staub http://www.staubusa.com/ they both last forever and they cook everything so well. All clad is good for everyday pots and pans as is paderno http://www.paderno.com/. Happy Cooking!
