This set is fully clad and was ~$150 w/ coupons at some point. I do like the set and I think it's worth it at this price. However, I do have some issues with warping and pitting. The pitting is due to the 18/0 outer layer for induction compatibility purposes and water being left on it too long. The warping could be just user error, but my junk tri-ply base pans have all been fine. I'll be testing out Cuisinart's lifetime warranty.
I read on another site (was looking at reviews) that the warping could be from putting a hot pan into cold water. Just wanted to mention it..
