I'm going to make the plunge...and there goes my tax return. Now I have to figure out where the blazes to buy them. I'm figuring on a ten piece set, regardless of the fact that I do kind of agree that buying things pan by pan is a better idea, because of the money factor, but there are so many places and at least three different ten piece sets that I've found. One, from url=http://www.metrokitchen.com/item/AC-501341/]MetroKitchen.com[/url], has the two quart saucier. This would come in handy because of how much I make sauces. The problem is that I'd be sacrificing the larger sauce pan to have it...and I do have the Emerilware one quart saucier. Then there's the one from Williams-Sonoma that has the four quart sauce pan. In all honesty, I don't see myself needing the four quart sauce pan much. A three quart would be a good addition to a set, but four seems very large. I do frequently cook for at least 5 people, though. It would be easy to add at a later date, though so would anything else really. The set with the saucier is cheaper, but not by a whole lot. Any advice? This is one of two things I'm doing for myself before I go off to school and can no longer afford to buy anything. If you were buying to outfit your own kitchen, what would you do?
