New kitchen will include a switch to induction. Since I will also have a steam oven my cooking style might change a bit. Also I expect we'll be entertaining even more, plus kids starting to eat real portions. Trying to figure out what I need and thought it would be nice to bounce thoughts off other cooks.
What doesn't need to be replaced: three Le Creuset dutch ovens: medium, large and very large.
Demeyere 32cm Multiglide skillet bought recently, as I was sick of scraping fish skin off regular skillets. I've never seen a non-stick pan that browns like this. And so evenly. AND it's supposed to work even better on induction. I love this pan. Now I am thinking of doing mostly Demeyere for the rest but don't have the stomach for big mistakes at this price level.
Will probably buy things as I go along but to start with maybe:
- 3 qt saucier
- saute pan (largest they make is 28cm. Does this make sense?)
- Don't know what to do re wok replacement. I really love my wok but no go on induction. They make a flat-bottomed one that works with induction, but I haven't been able to find any reviews.
- frying pans, same nonstick from same series, in sizes 20 and 28cm.
- I need some big thing to boil water. Maybe this should be from a cheaper line. Not sure about smaller pots for rice or veg as I could do those in the saucier or in the combi oven.
