New NON TOXIC Cookware!

In an effort to be more “Paleo” i’ve given up my non-stick cookware.  They’re only 3 years old and in good condition.  Only 1 piece started to peel while the others look brand new.  Probably because they are.  We really only use the pots for sauce or pasta and just 1 or 2 of the pans.  I think it’s safe to say there are 3 pieces we’ve NEVER used.  They’ve just been taking up precious space in my cabinet.  I’m actually looking forward to having some extra space.  In a one bedroom apartment with a tiny walk-through kitchen, all my cabinet’s are completely stuffed!

Ignore the mess on my table and the really bad cell pic!  Well, they’re all pretty bad cell pics, but this one was taken when my battery was low and I really needed more light, but my flash wouldn’t fire.

I did a lot of research on stainless steel sets and found a few really nice ones on Amazon and Bed Bath and Beyond.  My mom offered to get me a set for my birthday as long as it was reasonably priced.  This is the set I decided on from Amazon.  I really wanted a set made in the US, but the cost was more than double!!!  INSANE!  The reviews were great, they are magnetic, 18/10 stainless… and I LOVE them!

Pans

As soon as the UPS guy delivered it I ripped the box open and started washing all the pieces!  Then I remembered we were having leftovers for dinner, so I was pretty disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to actually cook in them tonight, but at least I could re-heat!  I’m avoiding using my microwave, so i’m thrilled to have these!

There was more chicken in this pan, but we ate it.  Guess I should have taken a pic before we ate, huh?

With the very pretty lid on!

Do you use stainless steel?  Any tips for me?  So far, I really love them!  I’ve only used these 2 pieces, but I can’t wait to try some more.  Especially the steamer insert!
