What pans to get???

Been looking at the pans and casserole dishes that delia highly reccomends. I would really like to purchase them but not sure what sizes and types to get?? Just me and my partner in the house but we often have people round for dinner, usually four of us eat. So anyone suggestions of what type and size of SKK pans etc to get??? I enjoy cooking lots of different styles of food.

thanks

Pans


Hi, we are all different but I have 2 sets of pans, small medium and large, in constant use. I might want 2 medium pans if I'm cooking tatties and another large vegetable, or 2 small or large pans. What do you wish you had to hand when you are cooking? I also often use 2 very large stock pot type things. I'm lucky as I have 6 rings on my current hob.

Something to bare in mind is how many pans of what size can your hob actually hold at any one time. If I had not moved I would have had to change my old hob as I could only get 4 small saucepans on the hob at one time and just about juggle with 3 medium if I had to. Don't even mention trying to cook with 2 Wok's ! There are only 2 of us as well on a daily basis but we do like to eat so we make our cooking life as easy as we can.

Could be a good excuse to buy a new hob :0)

Try the link above. The Cooks Essenials from QVC range get good reviews. Never used them myself but it looks a good multi-purpose pan for the price. Like knives, I have built up my pans gradually and have never bought a set. Depending what you are cooking I think you need different pans. I have a stock pot for my soup from Nisbets. I have picked up a few from TKMaxx (Berndes, Chasseur)at fab prices. My stainless steel pans are the tri-ply ones which also go into the oven if required which is good. I also considered buying some SKK ones but I thought they were too expensive and a bit on the heavy side. I also have one of those Marco Pierre Green Pans large frying pan, also picked up from TKMaxx at a fraction of the price. It is truly non stick.

I hope this helps.

Stugie, one of those griddle things to put stripes on your steaks are nice, I feel. They come in heavy cast iron.
