Upgrade my cookware and cooking experience
I've had been thinking about buying a set of all-clad for years. Found out about misen, read and bought the complete bundle set. After using I trashed all my inferior cookware (tefal - farberware - cuisinart). I now understand the importance of equal heat distribution. Made a lemon butter sauce using the fond of halibut much easier. Cooking has become a new pleasant experience. I like this cookware so much I purchased three essential bundle set, one each for my three daughters. Also 10" carbon steel pans.
I hurt myself some years ago using an inferior knife, thought I was going to lose my thumb. Used the misen chef's knife and immediately understood that the use of the inferior dull knife was the reason for my mishap. These knives make quick easy work of whatever I'm cutting. Not afraid to tackle butternut squash, chefs knife cuts without getting stuck or hesitation. Sharp and easy to maintain.
Have my desires for santoku and roasting (c'mon misen add a roasting grate) pan for myself.
I use bar keepers friend when the pans look dull to return them to like new appearance.
