My husband bought me a Calphalon set about 10 years ago. They've lasted this long but now the wear and tear is starting to annoy me, not as nonstick anymore, so I'm going to replacing my cookware soon too. I will be staying with the Calphalon brand.
We switched to cast iron cookware about 10 years ago. Totally worth investing in some beautiful pieces, they last forever. My favorite purchase has been a Staub Cast Iron 3.5-qt Braiser with Glass Lid, I use it daily.
For most of our day to day, we use Lodge Cast Iron (we have a 5" & 12" skillets). Reasonably priced, and you'll have it FOREVER! You can use them stovetop, throw them in the oven, or even use directly on a campfire grill. We supplement with non-stick pans, but haven't found a brand we adore yet. I'm eyeballing the Our Place Always Pan, which looks really versatile (and cute & lightweight & no harmful coatings).
I love lodge cast iron. I used it for a number of years but then it just got too heavy for me to lift because I have terrible wrists. I then switched to copper cookware and had no problems. It’s not as non stick as it shows on the commercials you see but does a great job! I only stopped using the Cooper because I inherited my grandmas guardian service and I really enjoy these!
