OK, wise readers, I need your help.
A while back, I posted advice from guest blogger Anita Dukeman about what cookware you really need. Her advice: buy cookware made in the United States or Europe. I've been putting off this purchase until about a month ago, when one of my pot lids completely came apart in the dishwasher. It's time for me to upgrade.
I've been checking out places like T.J. Maxx and Tuesday Morning, as Anita suggested, but I'm having a heck of a time finding cookware that isn't manufactured in China. I've also been browsing a bit online: I drool at All-Clad that's made in the United States and a Cuisinart line made in France.
But, I'm sorry, I just can't fathom spending more than $100 on one pot or skillet.
So. I need your help. Is there a line of good-quality cookware not made in China that won't cost as much as my study abroad trip to Slovenia in college? Or am I totally delusional to think I can get a great price on something new? Do you have a surefire source for secondhand, good-quality pots and pans?
I welcome any advice.
