OK, I have a 20 yr old set of US made Farberware. Great set. It's now in the cabin b/c I needed a set of cookware there. The downside to Farberware (Faberware??? It's down there so I can't speeeel it.) is that the lids don't stack in the pots. I hate that. Growing up, my mother had a set of Duncan Hines cookware made by Regal. Basically the same thing as Saladmaster, et al. Same company. They just rebrand it by different names. It didn't have removable handles, but it stacked very very well. Currently, my wiff bot a NEW set of wicket-awesome Revereware for the home last year. What crap. The handles don't stay on. Same silly non-stackable lids. It does "odd" things while cooking often - like having stuff stick like the dickens or rapid-heating all of a sudden under steady temps. Stuff it shouldn't do. And fit-and-finish stink. So I'm looking at my mom's old DH stuff this weekend and thought, "I gotta get a set of this." Tell me why I shouldn't get a set of Saladmaster (used, of course) on Ebay. Here are my criteria. And I know people here don't read this and put what THEY love, but here it is: - Stainless steel, uncoated. Gimme plain old steel. -Stackable lid design so that lids invert inside the pans and it all stacks together. - Plastic/melamine/bakelite/whatever handles. I don't do metal handles - THEY GET HOT! Heck, my cheesy Revereware handles get too hot for me. - Various sizes, 1Q, 2Q, 3Q, 5-6Q, possible larger. - Made of QUALITY and preferrably IN THE USA. With all of that, is there an alternative to Regal/Saladmaster that I missed? I know that SM is overpriced with a rep. Grossly so. But the hard part is finding anyone else that makes a line with the above-mentioned features. Muchos gracias GT'ers!
