After a lot of confusion over what this product is, what features it has, and how it compares with the other products, I decided to settle the debate and called Cuisinart several times to ask about the product. In the end, I did get the answer, but I also got one incorrect response. One of the representatives told me that it was a rebranding of the French Classic set; this is FALSE! All of the other representatives I contacted told me the correct answer:
The set is a club set, which means that it is "custom" made for clubs, such as Sam's Club and Costco. Therefore, no direct analog exists for this set among the retail products (nonclub) offered by Cuisinart. That said, the technology used is the same as for the Multiclad Pro (MCP) set, but with one difference: glass lids instead of stainless steel. There you have it! In terms of technology, the Tri-Ply Professional set is the same as the Multiclad Professional set, but with glass lids instead of stainless steel. The other differences are customizations: different sizes of a couple of the saucepans and a pasta pot instead of a steamer pot.
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.
Weird, I just returned a 3.5 year old patio set and a 5 year old scale yesterday.
