Cookware is one item that's very specific to the cook. You may like lightweight, nonstick pieces that make food prep fast and easy, or prefer the French stuff that's heavy-duty, beautifully made and built to last. Neither option is wrong. You may be lucky enough to have the room in your kitchen and a budget (or list of friends and family), that will support acquiring both.
Selecting the best bakeware is another matter. Your pieces should all be either light or dark to make evaluating baking times easier, and opting for new baking technologies, like silicon bakeware, can help get your cooking up to speed fast by ensuring that your recipes cook evenly every time. Cleanup will be easier, too.
