When I first moved away from home I got a set of Farberware non-stick pots and pans. I only have one piece left – the 4 quart pot. I use it for everything from popping popcorn to cooking pasta. Well, the non-stick coating is flaking off and probably giving me cancer so I think it is time to replace that pot. I liked this one because we have another hard-anodized pot that we love and I like the glass lid.
