Deal Details

Costco currently has the 12pc Cuisinart Multiclad Stainless Steel Cookware set for $149.99 after coupon found in the May 10th-June Costco Coupon book. This set is almost identical to the set sold on amazon seen here: http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-M...B0007KQZWU but features a 4qt saute pan instead of 3.5 qt and includes a 12in skillet and features glass lids rather than steel lids.

This is by far the best price I have seen on a triply cookware set after looking around for a few months. This comes with many more pieces than the popular tramontina set sold at Walmart that compares favorably to the highly rated All Clad cookware.

Edit: The lowest price of the amazon version of this set was $209 over the last year or so. So this is $60 less and includes an extra 12 inch skillet (retails for $60 on Amazon).

EDIT #2: I have attached photos of the box and one of the pans for your benefit.

Edit #3:

Specs of the Costco Set:
Model TPCC-12PC
Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Construction
All-Range Capable (Induction Ready)
Glass Lids
Dishwasher Safe
Oven Save to 500 degrees without lids and 350 degrees with the lids on.

The set consists of: 1-1/2- and 3-quart covered saucepans; 8,10, and 12-inch open skillets; 4-quart covered saute pan; 8-quart covered stockpot; pasta insert with lid. 12 pieces total.

I was looking for a best value tri-ply "clad" cookware few months ago, and I ended up with this one from Walmart.

Better Homes and Gardens 10-Piece Tri-Ply Clad 18/10 Stainless-Steel Cookware Set

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Better-...t/14915147

If this Cuisinart set is truely "Multiclad" line, I would jump on it. (If I didn't buy the BHG set earlier)
That looks like a really good set as well. After a quick glance, the Wal-Mart set has 18/10 whereas the Costco set is simply stainless steel. I wonder if the Wal-Mart set is rated at 350 for both the lids and the pots/pans or if that's just the pots/pans? When I read the instructions on the Costco set today, it said the pots/pans are rated to 400 degrees but the lids are only rated to 300 degrees. The Costco set is truly multiclad though.

Had I seen that set, I might have gotten that one instead of the Costco one. I dunno, that would have been a tough call - but since that one is stamped 18/10 it does seem to have higher quality materials (I don't know if that really makes it better, but the internets tells me it does, so I just go with it)....

what would you suggest to use for high heat? I tend to stir fry a lot.
If you are stir frying for fun then a wok at home is great. And you can create great food. But if you want to get the smoky notes that a good wok cook can get over a solid flame and you want ingredients to come out with the proper texture then go for a relatively wide and heavy pan. Be patient in waiting for it to really heat up before the oil and food goes in. Cook in small batches so that the heat level stays super high and steam can get away from the food very quickly. And get the food on the table quickly before it steams or poaches itself towards the soggy side of things.

I use a 10" or 12" cast iron pan at home for stir fry but a thin steel pan sometimes is better as the heat goes more directly to the food. I rarely get the results I really want if I am cooking for four or more (even if the flavor itself is still top notch.) I can get good stir fry results at home if I cam cooking a small side size dish . At work I typically cook in a mandarin wok over more heat than a most home ranges can put out with all of the burners and the oven on.

I think cheap pots are fine for boiling pasta or making broth. Cheap pans don't heat evenly and produce hot spots that cause burns. For sauteing and braising, you need an expensive heavy pan that heat evenly to produce the optimal amount of brown bits that make food so tasty.
These pans are super cheap but will do all these things. Contrary to popular belief, there is no direct relationship between price and cooking ability.

Yes these are Tri-ply on the sides, not just the base like most cheaper cookware sets. In regards to the lids, I think it is a tie as stainless steel is more durable but glass lids give you the advantage of seeing your food cook which is helpful when you are cooking grains such as rice or quinoa.

I hate when I burn my quinoa. FYIW, we've had the no stick set from Sam's for 2 years and found the product great.

Tri-ply means that there is an aluminum core bound between two pieces of stainless steel. The advantage is that the cookware heats up very quickly on all sides rather than just the bottom of a pan. This allows you to cook food to cook more evenly than other cookware sets.

And I bought this set yesterday. It looks fantastic in person and is a steal at this price and is a Tri-Ply set.
Maybe this set is a better deal for you "tri-ply" people? LINK [amazon.com]

So, I think I'd be in the market for new pans in the next 3-6 months.

I currently have Calphalon that the non-stick has started to flake off of.

Should I head to Costco tomorrow and buy this set? Is it that good of a deal and that durable that I should get there ASAP?

Yes - because the nonstick coating is terrible for your health, once it starts to flake off at all - time to replace the pan

I found that the one from Amazon is rated at 500 degree oven-safe. Does this mean the set from Costco is lower in quality?

Can anyone post a picture of the bottom of one of the pans (or type the text), specifically the 8 or 10" skillet? I'd like to compare it to the one I have from the MCP-12 MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set I have.

These seems like a really good deal.... but I'm a little skeptical not being able to find any information on the set. I've actually been in the market for a 12" skillet and wanted to get the Cuisnart MCP version, but don't like the fact that it is has the 'helper handle'. However, in this set there is no handle...hrrrmm...

Stainless steel is not hard to cook with, and these are really nice pans (although the set with the glass lids would be a deal breaker for me). The biggest problem that most people have is using too high of heat. These pans are pretty thick and hold heat well, so you just don't need the burners all the way up (i.e. when stir frying). If you are burning food with these pans, you probably have the heat up too high or don't have enough food in the pan.

edit: Just realized how much of a pain it would be to get a good pic of the bottom of the pans. Here is the text from the 10"

Cuisinart
Model # MCP22-24

Wow! Great deal. Especially with the 12" skillet. I'd get it if I needed cookware.

if you don't own stainless, i wouldn't start with an expensive set. they are very temperamental to work with. you're better off going with hard anodized nonstick. anolon and caphalon makes really nice sets.
Could not disagree more. Stainless is infinitely more forgiving than non-stick which can only be used with soft utensils and in dramatically limited temperature ranges by comparison. Stainless can last decades if taken care of, whereas even the best non-stick has a very limited lifespan with daily use as there is no such thing as a non-stick coating which doesn't wear out.

the background of the posted user suggested they preferred ease of use not longevity. anyone that says stainless is easy to use or that nonstick doesn't last a very long time, is non credible. only if you run them through the dishwasher.

eggs don't make my nonstick turn yellow, nor does salt create hundreds of divits in my cookware or discolor them. stainless is temperamental. i'm on year 6 of nonstick and an investment of $20 in new utensils, they look like new.

i own a stainless set i find i seldomly use the set for anything other than decoration. no wonder they last a lifetime.

Damn it! I want it, but don't have a Costco card. Does anyone live in Austin and willing to use their card?

Get a costco card. If you are not happy, then cancel and get a refund.
