You gotta understand. We're poor (in the sense of ready disposable income), so most of what we have in our kitchen is a hodge podge of what we could find or what we were given.
Most of what we do is cooked out of a very few, non-name brand pots, pans and skillets.
We have a cast iron skillet, one copper bottom stock pot (we got it at an outlet on close out, it has been one of our best purchases EVAR), a cheap oval roaster, two 9 x 13 glass cassaroles I got from my grandmother, a deep skillet/pot we use on the stove because I broke the glass lid for it, some random sauce pans (two non-stick), a very beat-up non-stick skillet I like for eggs ... you get the idea.
Our knife block is sort of the same.
Believe me, if we ever come into some ready, disposable cash, the kitchen and cooking utensils are high priority for upgrades because we use them a lot.
