The best pots ever
There are few things in my kitchen I love more than my Lagostina pot set. My mom bought me this set when I had my first apartment and was in my first year of culinary school in 1999. It is the 'Vienna" collection, although it seems Lagostina doesn't make this particular style of pot anymore, I think the most similar is the "Academy Five-ply-copper" set. The main reason I love it is because it is SO easy to go from this:
with just a sprinkling of Ajax.
Another reason I love them is the copper & aluminum base that heats quickly and evenly. Another great feature is the handles: made entirely from stainless steel, the pots and go right into a super-hot oven with worry, and also they have this neat ergonomic "notch" cut out of the handle for your finger to sit comfortably in.
If you are in the market for a new set of pots, you'll never regret buying a quality set like this one.
