    Default Tell me about.... Your saucepans!!!

    Most exciting topic. Ever. (Actually, I do find cookware fairly awesome). I'm in the market for a new set but not sure which way to go. What have you got? Are you happy with them? What don't you like?

    My current cooktop is ceramic but I might look at induction when we put in a new kitchen in a the next 6 months.

    I have a set of Raco saucepans with glass lids. Bought at Harris scarfe during sale and paid next to nothing. About 7 years old. They're fine.
    Add to that a couple of chasseur pots with lids I use for long slow cooking or to go from stove to oven. I love them and am devastated they won't work on my new induction stovetop.

    That is devastating. I have a couple of that style of pot. I would hate to not be able to use them.

    I've got a few Le creuset cast iron pans and Essteele stainless steel ones , the chasseur pans should work on induction cooktops if they are cast iron? Myer has a great saucepan sale on now

    All scan pan - pots, pans, roasting tray etc. We have ceramic. I can't wait to move and have gas and buy some decent cast iron pans.

    I'm surprised to hear the Chasseur won't work on induction. I have tested our Le Creuset and the base is magnetic, which means it should work on induction (which we are thinking of getting).

    We have fairly inexpensive Breville saucepans, which have been good to us.

    Look for a heavy base (which is magnetic, if u might get induction later).

    We have analon pans that I got a couple of years ago from Myer when they had a sale. It was an 8 piece set reduced from like $700-800 to about $300. They are great. We have gas and love that too.
