Calphalon commercial hard anodized set. Mmmmmm Ive been cooking for about 10 years now. Since moving I've spent some good money on my basic kitchen tools I tend to stick with SS sets from tea/tbs spoons to measuring cups, I also have some kick butt SS spatulas =) My parents have this same pot set, they are IMO one of the better "cheaper" sets you can get. I was debating on buying one of the sets I've had my eyes on for a few years now but I cant find it in myself to spend $550+ on 7 pots. So I got this top of the cheap line set, for the time being. Anywho, I can't wait to cook with them =) woot woot!
