I just bought some new Fiestaware about a month ago and it took me just a few hours before I used it for the first time. I love this stuff--you can put anything on a Fiestaware plate and stick it straight into the oven--it won't explode or break. My other favorite cooking pieces are my pressure cooker (don't see too many anymore) and my Black and Decker steamer. I have some Pampered Chef cookstones that live in my oven. What's your favorite piece of cookware?
