I love cooking. While I live in a city where there are amazing and endless incredible food options, I still enjoy making my meals myself. Everything from scraping together dinner from the random box of pasta with the random sauces, marsala wine, balsamic vinegar, etc to full blown meals where you actually food shopped for, its always fun.
And I will always really enjoy shopping at Williams Sonoma. Yeah, I know, totally domesticated.
I just saw that WS released their own line of cookware though. I'm a die-hard All Clad fan. We'll see how their Thermo-Clad line does with time though. If they are producing it, it probably stands up to the other name brands.

Yes, a lot goes into getting the cooking surface to heat consistently and to cook well as well as to be able to be cooled, cleaned are reused without falling apart for the rest of your life. Buy the right stuff once and it will last longer than our short time here.
