So I own like a 30+ set of copper cores (all clad) and d5s whatever point is, should I go pick a set and put it to test side by side ?

I hear a lot of warping complains, but all clad warps, any multi clad pan will warp if not heated properly as different metals clad together heat at different temperatures and expand and contract differently, I had in the past warped many of my all clads, live and learn lol, a costly lesson. Back to the point I seen this set on a pallet liquidation place near my home for $140 and I'm tempted to buy it and test it out. Should i? Then cook same thing same temperature same quantities... I think it would be a nice series of videos...

I already tested it back in post #42. Smilie

Permanently warped on induction on medium high in under 10 seconds. Didn't even get a chance to actually cook with it.

I was surprise how badly it is built as even the smaller diameter pieces warped.

Someone should just buy the pallet and smelt it down to back down to base metals as these pieces are useless as cookware.

I know the post is back in Jan. But just want to add some info in case anyone is looking.
So I got this set for $120 (such a good deal I cant resist). I have all clad and notice the all clad has thicker layer of copper - at least 2x or 3x the kirkland set. U can see it on the edge where copper layer is shown. However the overall thickness of all clad is thinner - all clad heats up faster vs kirkland. Kirkland does heat up more evenly and faster than my old cheap stainless. For the price and if you get it on sale it's worth it. Havent got any warping on gas range yet

As indicated before, I picked up a set to see how they do.

The test I performed on them is the same as I've done on Multiclad Pro, All-Clad D3, D5, Copper Core, and Demeyere. It involves putting the piece on medium high on my Samsung induction cooktop and then cranking it up to high until Leidenfrost effect is observed.

Both the 10" and 12" skillets that came with this set didn't survive the test; they didn't even survive medium high. Permanently warped in under 10 seconds and spinning like a top. So if you are planning to sear on an electric or induction cooktop, AVOID as both skillets are nothing more than paperweights. The critical reviews on Costco indicate the same.

Both the 2qt sauce and 4.5 qt saute have a permanent wobble but not spinning like a top. Didn't bother testing the other pieces.

The handles on the Kirkland set transfer more heat more than all the other brands tested. Based on visual inspection, overall thickness do appear to be a bit thinner than All-Clad; which would explain the warping and the lower oven temperature rating.

Overall you get what you pay for. it's a cheaply made set and priced as is; definitely not re-branded All-Clad. As such, this is not a slick deal. Needless to say, they are going back to Costco.


From prior tests, All-Clad skillets and saute pans passed, Multi-clad Pro 10" skillet passed. The Multi-clad Pro 5.5 qt saute failed in similar fashion. Didn't try the Multi-clad Pro 12" skillet.

Demeyere Atlantis 10" and 12" skillets handles my cooktop without breaking a sweat but they are built like a tank with a price to match.
