The deal is probably decent, but you're going to probably be better off getting less pieces of higher quality. These have a bonded aluminum disc on the bottom rather than running across the bottom and up the sides . Clad stainless steel will heat better and more evenly. Stainless should last a long time regardless of bonded disc or clad.

I bought it and then returned it. I'm pretty novice in cooking but these has to be one of the worst quality I've seen. The entire cookware feels like it's made with single thin sheet of metal. Handle is basically also single sheet of metal folded like triangular cylindrical shape. What I mean is it's open shape and when you grab the handle, handle will deform if you grab it too hard. It's so flimsy.

Which previous deal would be such?

Personally I would say all clad (they post factory 2nd deals here on occasion for single pieces), i have some cuisinart that I bought years and years ago that I still have that has held up well for quite a bit less than all-clad while still being fully clad. I hesitated to suggest those because the price is so much different, but having had the same stainless pots for the last 15 years, I think they are truly a lifetime purchase and therefore worth it.

It's $30. You can't really get more then 1 piece of multi ply stainless steel cookware. You also absolutely don't need the heating on the side for basic cooking and searing.

Perhaps I should look for a deal similar to this then?

If you mostly boil things like ramen or pasta, it'll be perfectly fine. I would not recommend using pans to sear things or stir fry as it can stick quite easily. If you do, season first!

I would look for a hard anodized non stick set and avoid stainless for a while as theres a bit of a learning curve. Tfal ultimate hard anodized or their professional line are great and relatively inexpensive. Oxo higher tier oxo fry pans are some of the best and not pricey

Get these....

https://slickdeals.net/f/13923908-all-clad-hard-anodized-8-10-fry-pan-set-45-free-shipping?src=catpagev2

They are great all purpose pans that can be used for stri-frying, eggs, ground whatever for tacos, stove top to oven cooking (they are good up to 500 degrees) and more. Other then the handles sucking big time, they are perfect for just about any type of cooking.

As far as pots and baking sheets, there are always deals here for those too, or look on amazon. I'll keep an eye out and repost if I see anything.

== UPDATE ==

If you're going to be cooking more, these would be a good idea to pick up too...

Peace out!

The worse! Very thin. Can easily be burnt. No good period. I open the box when I got home and returned it the next day.

Specifically if looking for something cheap but fairly durable, I would second another user's recommendation of hard-anodized aluminum. If you have aluminum pans with nonstick, they are probably going to scratch the easiest, and it will be downhill quick from there. At least for saucepans. For boiling water, non-anodized aluminum would probably do, just keep metal utensils away from it like it was kryptonite.

Somebody linked a cuisinart MCP-12n on amazon for 150 a few days ago, which is 5x the price of this deal, but this is about what I was thinking about. Nice set, will have good longevity, and will cook better. I caution that I have "old" cuisinart manufactured in Korea probably 15-20 years ago, so the new Chinese made stuff might be different, bet it is still clad cookware, so it may still be pretty decent.

No matter where it's made the quality is only gonna be what the company ordering the product asks for. Stuff made in US can be crap and stuff made in China can be AAA top notch like the smart phone a lot of people are using to view this right now. Love it when people make the generic made in china so its crap comment on an iPhone. Really up to Cusinart what level of quality they want to pay for and accept more so than what country they manufacture in.
