I will slowly be upgrading my kitchen. First I plan to replace an old oven/microwave combo with a double oven. Convection on top, conventional on bottom. After that I would like to replace my old electric range top. Gas would be difficult since it is not available in my neighborhood. I would have to put in a propane tank and convert the gas range to that. However, some posts on this forum have me intrigued with going to an induction range. Cost would be comparable but I would have to replace most of my pots and pans. They are stainless but not magnetic. The problem is the cost. I mean $200 for a 4 qt casserole, $100 for three metal mixing bowls, from AllClad, c'mon. Does anyone have any suggestions for induction compatible, reasonably good quality cookware that one of us peons can afford? Rich ps: The oven should be installed soon, I've got the cash set aside. I'm having some difficulty finding a local contractor that will take out the old unit, modify the cabinet and install the new unit. It seems unless you're doing a complete multi-thousand dollar remodel, no one is interested.
