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.

My mom had a similar set from a few years back and its showing signs of rust. Was made in China, is why i put it back.

I agree some stuff isnt bad from China, but i wont take a chance on something i cant return since i dont have membership with this place.

Because only stuff made in China develops rust? I'm confused.

im sure the costco "lifetime" return policy would still hold even if you werent a member. may want to look it up but i doubt they'd deny a return just because you arent a current member.

They do NOT have a lifetime return policy. The general length that coporate and individual stores hold to is 2 years, and if your pots rust after 2 years then you're SOL. Those stories you've heard about people returning TVs after 5-7years do not happen anymore.

This is correct.

Because generally speaking, merchandise made in china is of poorer quality than when they're made in other countries, even when they're the same brand.

This is from the website and i think its up to store discretion. TVs and electronics don't get the same policy.

Merchandise: We guarantee your satisfaction on every product we sell with a full refund. The following must be returned within 90 days of purchase for a refund: televisions, projectors, computers, cameras, camcorders, touch screen tablets, MP3 players and cellular phones.

Also i think this has a "limited lifetime warranty" rust should fall under the warranty. But if you're worried why not just get the tratamonia set at walmart or shell out the big bucks for the all clad.

The Tramontina sets are also made in china as well as most other cookware. The few multi-clad producers in america that I am aware of are America's Kitchen and All-Clad. Both of which cost hundreds of dollars more for a comparable product.

HOWEVER, I highly doubt this set will be rust prone unless you take poor care of your cookware. Rust is typically a result of misuse or abuse of cookware due to the user.

Quote from NuMystic View Post :
Eggs are quite literally the only excuse to use nonstick imo which only requires having one single pan on hand, and I still prefer a well seasoned cast iron or carbon blue steel pan for that.

Year 6? I have stainless that still has a mirror chrome finish after 17 years with no pits or discoloration. Super high-end non-stick has gotten better over the years but there still isn't a nonstick set on the planet that can hold up to daily use for that long no matter how you baby it.

Just like nonstick, you need to know how to use your cookware and that takes all of 20 minutes of due diligence. You can keep repeating the word "temperamental", but thousands of articles on every major cooking website and forum back up the fact that stainless is infinitely more forgiving in it's care and use than nonstick.

In professional kitchens the world over 98% of what you'll find is stainless, and that's for a reason. Durability, consistency, and the ability to handle thousands of hours of heavy use across a much broader heat spectrum. Nonstick absolutely has it's place in very specific applications, but those applications are far far more limited in range that stainless can handle.
He means that for the average person stainless is harder to use and less forgiving than non-stick. I don't think anyone here is arguing that non-stick is better than stainless. If you have no experience with stainless I can pretty much guarantee you're gonna get something burnt/stuck to the pan. It's much harder to fark something up in a non-stick. That's what he means by temperamental.

You both have valid points. But ... take it easy, OK? You each have different needs, just let it go at that.

I just noticed one difference between this and the Amazon set that I haven't seen mentioned up to this point. The Amazon set has the "V" handles that stay cool, but the Costco set does not. Maybe there are other less obvious differences.

The Costco set still lists "Stay Cool Handles" on the box, though, so maybe the difference is only cosmetic.

I actually noticed that when I edited my post. So far the handles have still managed to stay cool so it appears the merely cosmetic as the handles are still riveted to the pans.

I replaced all my odd pieces of cookware with the exception of some allclad pieces with the Multiclad line a while back. They are great items especially at these prices. Bummer about the glass lids though.

Purchased and used the pan today. Did research on amazon multiclad pro previously, as was very interesting in it. Most recent reviews on amazon for multiclad pro are negative due to staining as well as possible "rusting" due to cuisinart's decision to not use 18 10 stainless steel. Although amazon says 18 10 stainless, no where on the box is that stated, and it is not stated on cuisinart's website either. Amazon simply "chooses (prob due to the added value 18 10 stainless brings)" to avoid updating the change that cuisinart made in the last few years.

Anyways after using it, it does stain worst then the prior 18 10 stainless I've used. Over the next few weeks will see if its worth keeping. Gonna go buy Bars Keepers Friend which a lot of recent reviews on amazon recommend.

I'm not blaming cuisinart for an inferior product, after some research discovered that induction stove tops do not work with 18 10 steel so that could be their reason, although they could have made the inside from 18 10 while the outside from low grade stainless like all-clad does. I guess I can blame them for the decision to go low grade both inside and out instead of just out.

We'll see, costco has excellent return policy.

Hope that helps in ppls decision.
