Gas hob - what pots pans etc would be best.

I am getting my new gas hob installed on Tuesday. I know I can use my normal pots and pans but wondered if there was any other pots/pans that people swear by when using them on a gas hob. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

I have had a gas for 11 years now and find all my pots etc are good, stainless, cast iron, enamel etc. I would recommend getting a simmer mat though, it comes in handy when food 'catches' on the bottom or you cannot get the heat low enough, there are usually some on. I would never go back to electric.

Thanks, I had forgotten about a simmer mat.

I purchased one from Alison and Simon Holsts web site. cheapest by far, and good service.
A must for long slow cooking without burning or sticking, or when you need minimal heat.
