    I brought a pan stainless steel and by mistake I left the heat for a while.It blacked out and am unable to remove it..trued vinegar and dish soap nothing works..

    Is ceramic better?

    I feel my old Indian vessels are much better

    What brand of pans do you use..looking for a 12 or 14 inch skillet to cook vegetables..

    I bought a set from Costco 10+ years back. It is still going strong
    IMO the quality of stainless steel you get from US is better than one in India
    You need to pay attention while cooking It doesn't matter irrespective of vessels you use. Also stainless steel has no harsh chemicals like non-stick and gets work done quickly compared to iron vessels.
    Invest in good quality ones and take good care they usually will outlive you.

    You can use Bar keepers friend (powdery one you get in all stores). It works well for the burnt stains in stainless steel pots and pans. just sprinkle it on the pan and scrub it and leave it for few minutes and then scrub well and rinse it.

    Ironically I also have a Cuisinart set that I purchased from costco 12 years ago. I use 4 pieces from it. Its been so good. Not one piece decolored or fell apart on me. For currys and stews, I purchased a Vinod triply stainless steel kadhai in 2 sizes 2 years back. It gets a lot of use and abuse in dishwasher multiple times a day. But its going so strong. I like those for my curries.

    Calphalon is a good one.
    I have a cuisinart that works fine.. AFAIK, more than the brand it’s the thickness or weight of the utensil that matters..i use low flame as much as possible.
    To salvage the burnt pot, you can use a metal scrubber that you get in walmart/target, works like a charm..

    Also check homegoods store, they have some good ones there.. you just have to find a good one.. they have lots of cute ones to tempt, but go for the more expensive sturdy ones..
