What kind of cookware do you use? Do you have any hints, techniques, or suggestions for using it effectively?

Anything with Teflon- particularly saute and fry pans.

One of the most important things I have- other than the microwave and the toaster-broiler oven with broiler pan, rack, cookie sheet and pizza plate sized particularly for the T/B oven... is an electric knife sharpener- a stand alone unit. Marvelous, marvelous invention. I rarely use it but I am so pleased when I do. Whenever I go elsewhere.. a friend's home, - and the knives are dull- it frustrates me no end... I used to have dull kitchen knives, too..for years.

Usually, the one on the back of the can opener doesn't do the trick, a whetstone is usually too much trouble and effort. A couple of passes on each side of the blade with the standalone sharpener.. and I'm good for months at slicing ripe tomatoes, thin onions, and strips of raw meat.
