My boyfriend wants to buy his mother cookware for christmas. She is in dire need of new pans and such. I was wondering if any of you had recommendations as to good brands and such for cookware? I've been scouring the web and I've come across a sea of different brands and quite frankly I don't know what is good and what is crap! Just because something is expensive doesn't make it good, I think, and just because it is inexpensive doesn't make it crap, it could just be a good deal. So throw your recommendations for brands at me, or any websites you think may help. I appreciate it!
