My husband and I are looking to buy a nonstick set of pots and pans. We would like to spend no more than $150.
Thanks in advance

I bought Green Life ceramic pans for my son for Christmas, and he loves them, so I bought some for myself. I love them!
GreenLife 8" and 10" Non Stick Frying Pan Set - Walmart.com
The pros- you can cook anything without having to coat the pan. Food slides out easy!
The only con- they are not dishwasher safe, but they are super easy to clean!
I got the small one to try - and it's held up surprisingly well, excellent in fact for non-stick. I wasn't going to try any more and go back to stainless steel if this one started to flake. I was going to give it to the end of the year though before investing, unfortunately I need one of the larger sizes now.
It's good. I think we got ours at Boscov's, with stand up lid.
I also have non-stick ceramic frying pans from Wal-Mart (brand paderno). I really like them and they are under $30. I didn't research the safety but maybe I should have. It seems that everything has safety issues these days. Maybe the raw food dieters are on to something.
Great timing with this thread. I have been researching healthy cookware options and would love to hear from those who use the cast iron.
I was leaning towards cast iron for multiple reasons including the fact it adds iron to your diet, which I could use; however, recently I read an article stating the type of iron leached from the cast iron pans is not absorbable and therefore places a burden on the liver and kidneys as they attempt to process and rid the iron from the body.
I have read quite a bit about Ceramcor; however, it is soooo incredibly expensive.
Has anyone else heard/read this about the iron issue? I swear, sometimes I feel the more I try to be informed the more confused I become as there is always someone else's view that contradicts another view
I don't know..I just discovered that any food that grows out of the ground contains various metals. I learned this from a discussion about the recent report on shakeology containing lead. Honestly, I had no idea.
