Q: I recently moved into my first post-college apartment and am trying to set up my kitchen. My aunt bought me a set of Cuisinart stainless steel pots and pans. Are these useful and worth keeping, or would I be better off replacing them with a few non-stick pans? Or something else? Thanks!

Editor: I'd recommend keeping the Cuisinart pans (they're great!) and maybe buying just one nonstick sauté pan for things like eggs and fish. A good cast iron skillet would also serve you well!

Readers, what do you recommend?
