Save money purchasing thrift friendly, frugal,  used aluminum pots and pans at thrift stores and garage sales.  They may look bad, but you can make the inside look better with a little vinegar and water.  Put equal amounts of vinegar and water in the pan, and bring it to a boil.  Continue boiling until the pan looks good.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips to save money on pots and pans.

 

- Buy quality cookware and it will last for years.  Inexpensive pans will warp and not cook the food evenly.
 
- Always buy pots and pans that come with lids.  It may be cheaper to buy a pot hanging in a display rack, but it isn't as versatile and you will just have to purchase more cookware.
 
- Look for pots at garage and estate sales, as well as online.  Sets of quality pots can often be purchased at stores like Costco.  They also make great gifts.
