This is a great pan for one-pot meals. It's also good for casseroles that need to be finished in the oven.

My favorite is my cast iron skillet. I got it a couple years ago to be able to cook steak well indoors, for when I'm out of propane or its a bad blizzard outside. I've since learned to use it for a variety of other things, though lately I've really only used it for bacon. Still, it is my go-to pan (followed closely by my favorite pie pan).

If I had to pick only one pot or pan to take with me it would be a 10-inch saute pan. It feels the most useful and is often what I use to whip something up quickly for dinner. Everything from a simple grilled cheese, to fried rice, sweet potato hash, eggs, steak... even pasta if you had to, although it would be in smaller portions.

it has to be my 10 inch saute skillet, it is deep enough for everything, and judging by the wear, it is also my most used pot

My favorite pot at home is our 8 quart stock pot. Because of its size, I end up using it for nearly every meal, for sauteing, braising, boiling, etc.

Out of this Anolon set, I'd probably like the large french skillet the best as it would allow me to move from sauteing large quantities of food in my stock pot to a more appropriate pan!

... they are rounded, without a "flat spot", so they tip over when you place them on a counter bottom-up spilling the condensate that may be inside the lid.

My vintage Calphalon cookware has flat handles, easily lifted with a cook spoon, that remain parallel to a countertop when placed upside-down.

Granted, the rounded handles look nicer, but for me function trumps form.

Also, I bought an after-market glass lid for my big sauté pan after using, and liking, the glass lid on my big cooking pot. I'm a big fan of glass lids now.

Whenever I go home in the summer, my parents and I use a stockpot to make spaghetti sauce with their homegrown tomatoes. Yum yum! It turns out to be pretty incredible.

Is my deep dish cast iron skillet. It is a two-hander because it is so heavy but it makes perfect cornbread and is deep enough to properly fry chicken,

Without a doubt my ancient cast iron skillet. It is versatile, and performs with a consistency that makes me better.

My favorite pot is my Sitram 4.9-Quart Commercial Stainless Steel Saute Pan. It's essentially a frying pan that does double duty as a pot. It's perfect for creating one-pot meals like spaghetti or chili -- first I saute my meats and veggies, then add my sauce. I was married this year, and I did extensive research for my registry, and I found the Sitram to be a much more affordable alternative to the copper core All Clad -- and BOY am I ever glad I bought my Sitram. It heats up quickly due to the copper core, and it's just a nice sturdy pan. It's even dishwasher safe, although I still handwash it. I can't wait to add more to my collection.

I have a Kitchen Aid saute pan that I love because it is so versatile and can easily serve as the pot for a one pot meal. However, it is teflon, and I'm trying to get away from that.
