Recommendations on cookware (brands and specific pieces)?
I've recently become a stay at home dad and cook daily, if not multiple times a day now. I've always enjoyed cooking and have acquired some halfway decent cookware throughout the years, but with more time to cook and an expanding repertoire of dishes and techniques, I've realized that my current set of pots and pans is lacking in both quality and quantity.

I need to fill in gaps in my lineup as well as start investing in some better cookware and I'm hoping y'all can help. I'm looking for specific recommendations for certain pieces as well as general brand recommendations I should look at moving forward as I upgrade my current pieces.

I want to add multi-clad versions of:
1.5qt or 2qt sauce pan/saucier
4qt or 5qt sauce pan/saucier
12qt or 16qt stockpot

As far as brands go, I'm aware that All-Clad is pretty much the brand to beat for stainless clad cookware, but I've also seen a couple of direct to consumer brands with good reviews (Misen, Made In, etc...) and also am curious about copper cookware. Any thoughts there?

When we need new cookware, we head over to the restaurant supply store. You can usually get great value there. It may not be the prettiest cookware, but it tends to be well made, durable, and reasonably priced.

Oh good, another cookware thread.

I personally have All Clad, but from what I've garnered from other posts on the subject, Tramontina is very similar to All Clad at a much cheaper price point. I'd look into that.

I’ve been looking at the brand Made In lately, specifically their carbon steel cookware. Anyone have any experience with their line of products?

I mentioned this in another thread, but I’ve been slowly buying Le Creuset pieces. You could not have convinced me they were worth the money until I used them. We have a place in Orange Beach and I usually try to find a sale at the outlet mall in Foley if possible. So far I have a Dutch oven, stockpot, and braiser. The braiser gets the most use.

Le Creuset

Yeah I've got a nice Staub oval roaster and love it. And plenty of nice cast iron that I cook with often. Don't think I'll go that route for sauce pans and stock pots.

I recently got a few Tramontina Gourmet Stainless TriPly pieces (5 qt sauté pan and 10 oz skillet) and I’ve had good experiences with them. They’re recommended by the Wirecutter.

This - you cant go wrong. The only downside is the weight but for even cooking and easy clean, nothing better.
