I have been cooking for many years, I prefer stainless steel.

Let me say, the reason non stick is "easier" to clean over stainless steel, is simply because it is non stick, it was designed so nothing sticks to it, including food residue. Stainless steel is NOT more difficult to clean, any pan, of any material that has scorcthed/burnt food residue is going to be a pain to clean. With non stick it's usually a matter of using really hot wash water and a good non abrasive sponge. With stainless steel, you can deglaze the pan before washing it. Deglazing uses high tempature and liquid to lift the food residue off of the surface of the pan, it's actaully a method of cooking that produces excellent tasting sauces too. If deglazing doesn't get the job completely done, or you choose not to use this method, there is a product called Bar Keepers Friend. This stuff is the shit! Some 18 years ago or so I scortched the hell out of a sauce pan, I forgot it was on the heat. I used BKF and am still using that pan to this day.

Ultimaltely though, if you enjoy cooking and are planning on being THAT friend, get stainless steel. If however you are more of the I cook because I need to eat and don't feel like going out, still get the stainless steel, just treat it right and even a cheap set will last for quite awhile.

Take care,

I'm looking into buying some cookware, it's my understanding that stainless steel will need more oil and will be harder to clean as it will stick more. The non-stick however, if heated past 350 degrees(fairly easy if you burn bacon or something) will give off poisonous/ carcinogenic gases. Something to consider if you have young or newborn or concerned about health over convenience. Also that non stick layer will eventually scratch and wear off. That's my 2 cents, someone correct me if I'm wrong. Hope that helps.

Edit: Apologies, another user pointed out my mistake. It's 350 Celsius (662 Fahrenheit). From this source:

As someone who knows basically nothing about cookware- is one set preferable to the other for any functional reason (as opposed to aesthetics)? My roommates are moving out and taking much of the cookware with them.

One is "non stick", other is stainless steel.

That's an understatement. I'm not a chef/cook by any meals but I've made some pretty solid meals using standard non-stick pans, cast iron, the oven, air fryers, electric grills... but have not been able to get anything right using stainless steel outside of boiling water. I've read tons of guides/how tos and just cannot figure it out.

How does this compare to high-end lines such as Calphalon?

You're only saving $10 on the nonstick. I was trying to see if this was really a deal or not. If you check google shopping everythingkitchens.com has it for 69.42 with free shipping.
