How much cookware you need depends largely upon how often you cook, how many people you cook for and how elaborate your meals tend to be. It's very frustrating when you find yourself in the middle of preparing a big dinner and in need of one more saucepan, but you just don't have it. On the other hand, it can be very easy to accumulate far more cookware than you actually need.
Most people will who do even a small amount of cooking will find a lot of uses for a couple of different size saucepans and a couple of different size skillets. Tight-fitting lids for the saucepans are also important when preparing dishes such as rice.

About the Guest
The son of a Norwegian fisherman, Captain Sig Hansen began fishing at age 14. After finishing high school, Sig took up fishing full time and at 22, he was already enough of a veteran to serve as a relief captain on the Northwestern, his family's boat. Four years later, he became the boat's full-time captain and one of the youngest ever to take command.
For nearly two decades, Sig has seen to it that the Northwestern is one of the Alaskan crab industry's top producers. He considers this performance essential, but he'll tell you that a greater accomplishment by far is the lack of any major accidents onboard the Northwestern.
A hard-driving captain, Sig pushes himself and his crew to work grueling hours under extreme conditions. He's a fatherly and compassionate man who puts a premium on family responsibility. This year, Sig will be training his brother Edgar to take over as captain of the Northwestern.
