calphalon - which type
Thu, 11-20-2003 - 12:35pm
My mom is a farm wife who still cooks a lot of mashed potatoes. I would like to get her new cookware. What are advantges of disadvantages of stainless, non stick, commercial, 10 year warranty, etc. What would be best for her? She likes to brown a roast, has a smooth top electric range, uses George Foreman for hamburgers, but fries pork chops, mashes potatoes in pan...

I'm another Corning Ware girl - cornflower, too!

I thoroughly enjoy working with cast iron, but I don't know if that can be used on the smooth top ranges.

That being said, a potentially USEFUL piece of information: stay away from copper bottom stuff - it's just too much of a pain to clean (even though I used ketchup to clean mine, it was still VERY time consuming.)

I'll tell you honestly - if I could afford it, I'd go All-Clad, all the way!

Keep on flappin'!
