If you are a vegetarian or vegan, you should invest in a good-quality stainless steel cookware set. If you take care of these pots and pans you will have them for a lifetime. Unfortunately, lower-quality (i.e., lighter) stainless steel pans found at department stores or specialty home stores will not conduct the heat well, nor will they hold in the heat. The best vegetarian cooking is done on a low flame, and the heat needs to be held inside the pot tightly. Thick, heavier, better built stainless steel is what you need to find in a pot or pan.
