To ask about pots and pans?

Requesting some pans and pots for Christmas: we’ve hammered every non-stick one we’ve had, not through any obvious misuse (not scraping a fork around it or scouring them) but they’re all flaking and non-non-stick now.

Is it worth the hassle and care of getting cast iron ones? Once prepped, are they easy to wash up and look after? Should we get more pricey non-stick brands? Or do we just accept like everything else, mid-range stuff doesn’t last anymore?

Thanks for reading the world’s most domestically dull AIBU! Brew

I bought an expensive set of Circulon pans that didn't last long although pans are our Achilles heel, they never seem to last! The two exceptions are a plain cast-iron frying pan we bought in Bradford for 3/6, that's three shillings and 6 pence for you youngsters, about 18p, and a small Le Creuset pan we bought about 45 years ago. We managed to actually break the LC frying pan and larger pan bought at the same time, the cast iron seems to weaken over the years.

Hard adonised ones are fine, my last lot managed 15 years, new ones are from Asda (but premium range)

Another vote for the Tefal Ingenious set.
