Al core thickness - any brand info?

Ok. I read the article at
http://forums.egullet.com/index.php?showtopic=25717 .
The conclusion fit my cooking well. It sounds like I need to know the aluminum or copper core thicknesses for a true comparsion of cookware.

Do you know the thickness, for any brand, that I can use for comparison?
Most product websites don't tell you.

Lor;
Unfortunately, I can only give you a couple. The Revere Chef's Request has a 5 mm thick aluminum core as does the Wolfgang Puck line. I seem to recall that the Cuisinart line uses a 5 mm as well.

Thank you so very much for the url. I never knew I knew so little about the ins and outs of cookware. Thanks again

No prob.
I know I found it very valuable!

BTW, when I asked All-Clad about their core thicknesses in their fully-clad lines, they told me that was not available to consumers. ... What a joke.
In the end, I went back to my favorite ...nonstick cookware. However for SS, in my humble opinion, you can't beat the Emerilware SS line. It has the best copper base core & All-Clad's lifetime warranty.

I had reviewed the following lines before making my choice: All-Clad, Emerilware, Calphalon (all lines), Kitchen Aid, Cuisinart, ScanPan, Sitram, ... & more I don't remember now.
