Ok, I really need you help. This subject started in the kale and collard thread and after doing a search I didn't seem to find the information on cookware that I was looking for. Anyway, I would like a set of waterless and greaseless stainless steel cookware  for Christmas. From what I can tell most of these sets are sold by in home parties or independent sales. I did look online and found some sets but very very pricey. Also found some on ebay more reasonable but a tiny bit leary of investing that much money from an unknown source.

I want surgical stainless steel and no nonstick surface material, and would like the complete set. Any input from you have would be helpful in purchasing the right set the first time. I feel that if you eat healthy you much cook healthy and these seem to be top of the line in cookware.

Look at the quality of the handles.  Often handles are secured poorly and will fail over time.  I prefer metal handles that I can put into the oven as well as use on the stove.

I am not sure about the majority of the new "Waterless Cookware" sets. Although my sister swears by her set. Some name like Masterchef.
A casual Googling reveals that of the many 'brands' sold virtually all are made by 2 companies...

There were several years back that were pretty thick that really held the heat well.
And they didn't have knobs on the lids - they were stackable.

You'll probably be better off with the modern pressure cookers that don't vent. like a Fagor and come in a variety of sizes.

Alternatively, the Korean Stone Cookware {for Bi Bim Bap}  works like Waterless.
Japan has 'Stackable Stone Cookpots' that vent the steam to the various layers...
All of these the lids are stout enough that it also has the advantages of a pressure cooker. Also, once you temper the stone they will work on electric hobs.

Recently I bought a whole new collection of cookware.
I searched and searched for ages for the exact ones I wanted.
As Vicki said the handles are important so I didn't want any screw in types because they hold water when washed.
Also I wanted glass lids.
Finally I found a set made by 'Silampos', made in Portugal. Stainless steel, heavy solid bottoms and with the glass lids. Apart from two small 6" saucepans (with long handles) the other ones are casserole type pans with two small handles either side. The best news was that the store was selling the range at 50% discount and I could choose which pieces I wanted, sometimes sets give you things which you may not use.
I have a separate steamer for vegetables and have used that for several years now.

Busybee, you are right to do your homework first because these items are always an expensive outlay, so mistakes can be very costly.

Yes, Yes, Yes..... That's why I am trusting everyone advice here. My feelings are if you want to eat healthy preparing the food the proper way is just as important. Being that everyone here is very health oriented there must be good tips that will help me in narrowing this thing down.

Thanks for the Link!  I must confess that buying cookware seems like a pretty daunting task to me;  I'm still cooking in my mother's (She died in 1991) old Club Aluminum because I'm not quite sure how to cook in SS.  

Love,

Myra.

It really is worth investing in good cookware. You can get some stainless steel that is not that expensive. SS , glass,  cast iron, or stoneware are the safest products. Never use the nonstick pots & pans. It chips off into your food and you eat it unknownly. The alumimun is not a good product either.

When one of my friend had cancer she was teaching me about healthy eating and preparation.

I always thought that enameled cookware is the safest good cookware. SS can react with the food.

What is enameled cookware?  What about the porcelain (sp) clad cast iron?  

Thanks to this thread I'm really thinking about taking the plunge and investing in some new pots and pans.

Love,

Myra.
