I keep reading about this cookware set online, people seem to be referencing it as "BIFL" (buy it for life) and for $140 it seems like a pretty damn good deal.
I need my own set anyways instead of the band of misfits I'm currently using.
Only problem it seems to go out of stock fairly frequently.
Well, its back in stock at Walmart.com with free shipping (or free in-store pickup, or free ship-to-store).

3 saucepans, 2 frying pans, and 3 lids.
18/10 stainless
tri-ply clad

Here is a 12pc [walmart.com] set for $119, don't know what is the difference, they are all 18/10, never heard of Tramontina but good quality SS cookware should last 10+ years, I have some knives that lasted 15+ years and still going without any rust spots.

However, SS is hard to cook with, they need to be seasoned good or it will stick.

^ that one is a newer set with glass lids. Though I don't know what is different quality-wise, I haven't seen them side by side. However, if you look at the reviews of both I think you'll see a difference.

Here are the 3 negative reviews:

1) Handles get hot
2) I didn't like that it stuck so much
3) Can barely cook in the pans without the food stickin

Not much of an negative if they know how to use SS cookware.

The difference between OP's $140 set and the 12 pc set for $119 is that OP's set is higher quality - it's fully clad tri-ply 18/10 stainless steel versus only tri-ply in the base for the cheaper set. OP's set is functionally comparable to All-Clad, whereas the $119 set is not. Also, I find glass lids harder to keep clean. I'd personally buy a fully clad set over a base only set. HTH

Edit: Meant comparable, not equivalent to All-Clad.

Comments 2 and 3 are probably users that are accustomed cooking with nonstick Teflon.
These are tri-ply, they don't need hi heat to cook the food. They should have read the manual.
I have a set from the Sams Club sell off and they are great.

For $20, full clad set for sure.

I got this set about 2 years ago. Here are a few of my thoughts:

1. Food definitely does stick more than teflon/non-stick BUT you aren't eating the random chemical they put into that non-stick. I've had two sets of Calphalon before this and both sets the non-stick slowly came off. I wonder where it went? In my food.

2. The stuck-on/burnt-on bits come off easily if you know a few tricks. For cooking eggs, try heating coconut oil in it to a really high heat, let it cool and wipe out the oil. There are a few sites showing howto on this. If your food sticks, after you remove it put water in the pot/pan with a bit of dishsoap, put on the lid, and put it back on the still-warm burner. When you go to clean, it should just wipe out. Another trick - when I brown onions/garlic, when I'm done browning, I put a splash of Vermouth in ... almost instantly gets all of the good stuff off of the bottom.

3. The handles are functional but aren't very comfortable, especially for the bigger pan. Good luck pouring out anything, it is always awkward.

4. Everything has held up tremendously well. Overall, a good set, especially for the money.

5. This set would be better with more lids. Luckily the lids from my Calphalon set fit perfectly.

Hope this helps someone!

Keep in mind that this set is oven safe for only 350. There are other sets that are up to 500.

Please don't put this Chinese made, decent (at best) cookware inline with the American made All-Clad. It's a completely different class of cooking and cookware.

Putting water in the hot pan is a good way to warp your pan (you'll know you've done this to a pan when you put oil in and it all goes to the outside edge). The Vermouth - your deglazing your fond which is great for sauce and the like.


Get a few cans of Bar Keeper's Friend. That will keep your pans pretty much like new.

Good Quality SS should last a few lifetimes if properly cared for and you don't "season" SS - you season CI. SS is a blank canvas every time you start.

I have this set, and it's amazing.... Not just amazing for the price; just plain amazing.

People say that food sticks versus a nonstick pan. Of course it does. That is how you build crust on a steak or chicken. It's how you get flavor on the food. Then, you remove the meat, deglaze the pan, and make a sauce.

The pans are designed for real cooking, and I can't recommend them enough!
