Because I'm a bit paranoid about the materials leaching into my food, all my cookware is glass (Visions??). I a, happy with it, though it's easy to burn stuff in it. I've been wanting a cast iron something for years, but still prefer my food in glass, even though I admit it's a bit neurotic.


Stainless steel doesn't leech but aluminum does which is why I gave up my aluminum pressure cooker.

I use non-stick, but it's pretty expensive stuff and I'm fanatical about taking care of it. I use this pan more than anything else in my kitchen, usually once or twice per day, and I've had no trouble with it. My mum uses the same cookware and she's had hers for years, and they're still good as new. A+, would buy again, etc.

Cast iron. All the things. (OK except for my wok, cuz I can't afford one) Once it's well seasoned it's completely non stick. ^_^
AND Cast iron can be had for cheap at antique stores/thrift stores. :)

I can't recommend a brand, but I really like both stainless steel and cast iron. I think it depends a lot on what you use the most though. I have bought (or been given) one pot at a time when I felt the need and that has been great. So far, we have
- one small pot (1 ½ litres), stainless
- one stainless kettle (no room on the counter for an electric kettle)
- two slightly larger pots (3 litres), stainless. One of them has one long handle, the other is the kind with two handles. I like the one with one handle the best.
- a separate pot for popcorn, 3 litres, aluminium
- two medium pots (5 litres) stainless
- a large pot (10 litres), stainless
- a cast iron pot that used to have a glass lid but I broke it, so I use another lid now
- a cast iron skillet
- a cast iron crepe pan

I would also like a larger cast iron pot - I think the one I have is 4 litres - and a larger cast iron skillet. I will have to wait until we have more room I think... I don't miss non-stick pans at all, never liked them much. All my pots and pans can go in the oven, which is useful. And if it's not obvious from the above, I don't recommend glass lids, but then my middle name is butterfingers.
