Cuisinart Multiclad 12 Piece Set - $150 AC from Costco B&M *Like AllClad*

Posted 05-10-2012 by Xenocide23 at 10:38 PM
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.

i'm new to the cooking world, I currently have some cheep-o pots and pans, most of which are non-stick. What are the benefits of these stainless steel (non non-stick) pots and pans? What is the best way to use them, take care of them/ clean them, and how do i make them last?

Thanks.

Triply stainless steel cookware is really nice because it has the benefits of stainless steel cookware (durable, long lasting, dishwasher friendly) while still having excellent heat retention and distribution.

The key to cooking with stainless cookware is to use medium-low heat and to always preheat oil or butter before you begin cooking to prevent food from sticking to the pans. Pans tend to clean fairly easily with soap and water but Barkeepers Friend is recommended if you get discoloration on the pans to polish them out. Alternatively, if you are lazy these pans are dishwasher safe.

Using Barkeepers friend once in a while, not overheating the pans, and not placing hot pans in cool water (can cause warping in all pans) will make these last for decades. Non-stick pans, on the other hand, typically wear out after only a few years.

what would you suggest to use for high heat? I tend to stir fry a lot.

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.
1. Which set do you feel is better? Cuisinart or the Kirkland? and why?

2. Stainless vs glass lids. Stainless, can't see what your cooking but you can put in oven. Glass you can't put in oven but can see what your cooking?

I'd like to hear as many opinions as possible.

I personally prefer the glass lids as I don't usually use my cookware in the oven.

Also I purchased a few pieces of the Tramontina cookware a week or two ago but ended up returning them for this set due to the price difference. Both sets seemed quite comparable with the only advantage of the Tramontina set was having more comfortable handles.

The kirkland set at Costco is not tri-ply and thus inferior to the Cuisinart set currently on sale. I looked at both sets side by side last week.

So, I think I'd be in the market for new pans in the next 3-6 months.

I currently have Calphalon that the non-stick has started to flake off of.

Should I head to Costco tomorrow and buy this set? Is it that good of a deal and that durable that I should get there ASAP?

I just bought this yesterday, but I don't see anywhere in the box that says it's multi-clad or all clad. Can anyone help me out with this?

Look at the bottom of the pans/pots. If there is a large disk on the bottom, that means only the bottom is encapsulated and it is not tri-play.

I saw this at Costco yesterday. I looked on the bottom of the box and it is made in China - maybe that is why it is cheaper. I noticed the similar Cuisinart set on Amazon or William Sonoma is made in France. Any difference to where it is made?

The ones on Amazon say "inspired in France" not "Made in France." Also, it could be because the ones on Amazon supposedly are stamped "18/10" as opposed to the ones at Costco simply saying "Stainless Steel." Also, as has been pointed out, the ones on Amazon have stainless lids whereas the ones at Costco are glass with stainless trim.

I ran over there today and picked up a set. They're definitely hefty, and they say they are tri-ply so we'll see how they work out.
