In My Kitchen: Bialetti Cookware

Someone emailed me wondering what sort of pots and pans I use. I have a fair amount of Le Creuset (teapot, lobster pot, grill pan, stockpot) and Calphalon (various saucepans, everyday pan) but I honestly use the pieces from this Bialetti set (in blue and not pink, sadly) that my mom bought me years ago rather frequently and the whole lot of them is only a little more than that Le Crueset teapot. They are nonstick (I know some people are anti-nonstick, but I am not too concerned), oven safe to 350 degrees and have held up to several years of heavy use and abuse with out peeling or having to be replaced.
