I am looking for all new cookware. I had an extensive set of All-Clad before my divorce. I liked it, but sometimes it was a PITA to clean, and 2 of my pans warped. I also can't afford All-Clad anymore.

I was looking at this Cuisinart Hard Anodized Cookware Set but have no experience with this brand.

Any thoughts? I cook nearly every day, and most of my cooking is done on the cooktop, not in the oven. I pan-sear a lot of meats, and make simple sauces...

I love my copper bottom Revereware. I've been using it for about 30 years and it's held up well.

I actually have few vintage pieces of that! Problem with it is the handles are so old that they get really, really hot while you cook. And I just have 3 pots. No pans.

I don't know anything about that brand, but I have the Anolon Advanced Hard Anodized cookware and I love it. It is easy to clean and doesn't warp or stain. I have had mine for several years now and it looks like new.

We have Calphalon and bought it a piece at a time from the outlet mall.

I have Kitchen Aid - it's similar to all-clad at a fraction of the cost. I love it, I've had it for about a year. I use barkeepers friend to really shine it up and keep it looking like new.

Check out the Today's Special Value over at QVC.com - it looks like a good set actually.

I have a set of Paula Deen cookware, plus all the accessory pieces. I chose the Robins's Egg Blue, and it's available in Red and a strange shade of Green. Red is very popular. I think they've given up on the green.

Thank you for all your suggestions! I still haven't made up my mind.
