Best pan/pot for rissoto?

I guess another thing I might add, is that when watching videos of folks preparing risotto, they're using all variety of pans. Stainless steal, nonstick, or something that looks like enameled cast iron. Do these really make a difference in how the risotto will turn out? Is one superior or perhaps, inferior, to the other? Thanks again.

Best pan/pot for rissoto?

Thank you for the responses, friends. As far as price point. I'd say under $100 per pan/pot. I may throw that Falk saucier on my Christmas list lol. For now, only planning to feed myself and occasionally my girlfriend. I bought the Mauviel based on looks alone, just though it looked cool and it was on sale. I figure it would become my personal pan for my use only. When I looked at bigger sizes, I realized this may be the only copper pan I'll have for a while lol.

I'll definitely stop by TJ Max on the way home and see what's available, thanks for the tip.

So as far as this Mauviel pan and it not being something for risotto, what can I cook with it?

Hi all, I just moved into my first apartment and need to learn to cook ASAP or else I will have to suffer many nights of Taco Bell. Anyways, I love risotto and plan to try plenty of recipes I have found online.

However, I'm not exactly sure what pan or pot is best to make it. As of now, the only pan I have is a 8.6" Mauviel M'heritage 150c that I impulsively bought on looks alone.

Thanks for your suggestions!
