  • Stainless pans

    Can you tell me about them? Pros/Cons....Good brands to get? MIL has been bugging me about what I want for Christmas and I am thinking a nice 8 or 10 in omlette pan. TIA

      I use All-Clad. I'm the cook of the house so I wanted something that would last. I have a copper set and a stainless set. The copper set has to be washed by hand (no dishwasher) and I polish them after each use so they look good. The stainless set was a lot less money and you can put them in the dishwasher. Like LEM said, you have to cook at lower heat settings but they heat up and cool down faster than anything else I've ever used before. I really like the handles as they stay cool.

        I have several of the Tramontina stainless skillets and they work very well. You may want to have several of the 1 qt. and 2 qt. saucepans depending on how much stovetop cooking you do.
        Look on eBay to see what comparison prices are.

          I am totally in love with Calphalon Unison. I am changing out my old pans for them piece by piece. They have two types, Sear and Slide. and they cook beautifully and clean up like a dream. They are just fabulous.

              We have All Clad and love them.

              However, they take a little adjusting to get used to vs non-stick. I wouldnt start off with an omlette pan since I think they are the hardest to work with. It takes a while for you to get the hang of it and not get eggs to stick. I'd start off with a stock pot, sauce pan, or a saute pan first.

                The new All Clad D5 stainless is great.

                Things to remember about cooking with stainless:
                1. Don't buy cheap.

                2. Be sure to use Barkeepers Friend powder cleanser to polish the metal after each use. You'll have fewer problems with food sticking.

                3. Don't put your cookware in the dishwasher.

                4. Pre-heat your pans on medium to medium-hot and then, if you're using oil, put it in after the pan has gotten hot.

                5. Don't use extremely hot temperatures.

                      All Clad. And you can put them in the oven. DH sears our steaks and then they go straight to the oven for finishing in the same pan. And use Barkeepers friend for cleaning.

                        If that's the case then why don't professional chefs use them for their personal cookwear?

                            That's a good start. Just keep in mind that you normally can't use the coupons on All Clad (although one time we got away with it )
