What cookware should I buy? I've always had cheap non-stick cookware. I'm looking to buy my cookware for life, and I think I'll lose the teflon. Help me choose.

I'm looking at calphalon anodized, but some sites seem to indicate this is aluminum and I'd rather not get alzheimers. Is it aluminum? Am I right to worry? If I'm wrong to worry, what exactly is the difference between the "One" and "Commercial" Anodized?
I'll lose the teflon for health reasons, but if we can keep it relatively idiot proof and easy to wash that would be great (cake, eat it too, etc.)
I love gas stoves and will have a gas stove as long as it is my choice. But cookware should be good on gas or electric. Further, I'd love something I can use on high heat. I know lots of people say about pans "they're so great, you don't even have to use high heat" but when I hear that I"m thinking "Uhh...that's good, but wouldn't it be faster if you *did* you use high heat?".
Tell me, mefites, what kind of cookware can I get that's healthy, hassle-free, and long-lasting?
p.s. Yes, I searched. I found a post asking for non-stick cookware
