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.

Is the set at Costco also tri-ply up the sides or just the base of the pots/pans?

Would buy, but I prefer stainless lids. Lighter, more durable in oven, won't break when they invariably fall off the counters. Also, the stainless band that goes around the glass just means that there are more places for bacteria to get stuck in vs a stainless one piece.

Yes these are Tri-ply on the sides, not just the base like most cheaper cookware sets. In regards to the lids, I think it is a tie as stainless steel is more durable but glass lids give you the advantage of seeing your food cook which is helpful when you are cooking grains such as rice or quinoa.

The 8 piece Tramontina set on Walmart that has been quite popular on this site has the same price despite coming with 4 fewer pieces. Not to mention Costco's fantastic return policy if one of the pieces has problems.

Have you actually purchased the set and does it explicitly state on the packaging that it is Tri-Ply clad?

I'm a bit concerned by the fact that nowhere on the Cuisinart site or any place else online can I find a 4 Qt Saute pan in their Multiclad line, while there is a 4 Qt Saute pan in the cheaper Chef's Classic line.

The item on Amazon has stainless steel lids, but I can't tell from the picture of the coupon as to whether it has glass or stainless steel lids.

Yes, I am wondering the same. When I went to the Cusinart site (http://www.cuisinart.com/products...rison.html) the set in the OP matches the the non-tri-ply set (http://www.cuisinart.com/products...44-13.html).

I'm actually waiting for a tramontina set to go on sale, but it seems as if that might never happen again.

It looks like it's regular raised glass lids from the Costco pic. Stainless lids are flat.

I am pretty sure this is not tri-ply. The coupon doesn't even say it. If it was/is it would be an awesome deal. If this deal does not "pan out", anyone who is interested in the cuisinart tri-ply should watch the open stock pieces from amazon warehouse. You can build a set for super cheap, you just have to buy the pieces individually when they hit the right price range. Usually amazon slowly lowers the prices daily until they sell. In my experience the "used like new" are really brand spankin' new.

This set is tri-ply all around including the sides, with a glass lid. I saw it in Costco last week. It's a great deal if you're in the market for stainless steel cookware, too bad I already have the cuisinart classic and can't really justify splurging on an upgrade. The tri-ply really only makes a difference for the skillets; pots don't need it.

The sides on the sauté pan that I saw at Costco are too vertical which makes it bad for tossing and flipping food.

Tri-ply means that there is an aluminum core bound between two pieces of stainless steel. The advantage is that the cookware heats up very quickly on all sides rather than just the bottom of a pan. This allows you to cook food to cook more evenly than other cookware sets.

And I bought this set yesterday. It looks fantastic in person and is a steal at this price and is a Tri-Ply set.

Good deal for a solid set. Would probably pick up if I didn't grab the Kirkland Signature set a year or so ago.

This is a great deal for a tri-ply set. I'd buy it for sure if I didn't already own a set of tri-ply cookware. I got mine for a similar price a few years back, but i had to REALLY hunt for it and stalk it. TU and reps to the OP.
