I will need to purchase new cookware soon and really want something that is going to last. We have a few old Revereware peices that we like, and thought perhaps we should find something similar. I also love my cast iron and cast/ceramic pieces, but not sure I will be able to handle them in later years (sigh). What about Calphalon tri-ply stainless? Does anyone have suggestions? I love the look of copper hanging from the pot rack but how practical are copper bottom pots? Thanks for any helpful input!
