I am looking for good pots to cook family dinner in, maybe in the 50-80 dollar price range. In need of something that will not rust and is durable.
Vremi 15 Piece Nonstick Color Pop Cookware Set; 2 Saucepans and 2 Dutch Ovens with Glass Lids, 2 Fry Pans and 5 Nonstick Cooking Utensils; Oven Safe, PTFE and PFOA Free
Honestly, I am in the market too. We have a couple of older teflon pans that are past their prime.
@GK, my friend swears by Scanpan:
About 90% of my frying happens in 3 sizes, so I might buy fewer, and try to reach a bit on quality.
I looked up a review on good housekeeping, and these next ones, were the pans recommended closest to your range. Note-for a smaller set, you can probably get right into your range:
Here's the review, so you can go deeper if you want:
I know you said you wanted something that won't rust, but I am still going to suggest cast iron cookware. We have had our cast iron frying pan for nearly a decade, and though it is showing some ware, it has still outlasted the cheep stuff we bought at walmart while in college.
With a little bit of love, cast iron can last a lifetime, so totally worth the value. Just wash with a clean cloth and some water (lightly scrub with a chain mail before to get off the tuff stuff). Heat up the pan and then grease it ever so slightly.
If you want to learn more about cast iron maintenance check out this video.
go to amazon.com or bed bath and beyond.
i like T-FAL that is my best set i have if your looking for non-stick. Never use metal utensils in them I use plastic utensils and the pans will last you forever
