This will be my first post on the cooking forum. Why I haven't been here before is beyond me as I love to cook and unfortunately love eating even more. Anyway, I am getting ready to have a Pampered Chef party. My original plan was to have the party so I can get the cookware half off. I will still be paying $145 to $160 on the cookware with the discount. This would include three pieces plus 2 lids. My Pampered Chef rep is very new so I am not entirely comfortable in asking her questions. I will be her 4th party. For the people that have the cookware, what are your opinions? I currently have some of the pieces and have been satisfied but not "this is the best stuff ever!" either. My wok has started to chip although it is now 10 years old. I have other pieces that are chipping. These are a little older and used frequently so I am not too bothered by it. Of course, these are the items that I am hoping to replace. I cook all the time so I am considering getting the "Professional" cookware which is stainless steal. I have never used that before. What are some opinions of the stainless cookware? Is it easy to clean? Is there something out there that is comparable to Pampered Chef for less money? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
