I have an 8" Bialetti skillet. It's aluminum and non-stick coated. I use it for eggs and grilled cheese. It does an excellent job and cost me $5 in a discount store.

What materials are your skillet and DO made of?

Is the DO SS tri-ply or does it have a disk on the bottom?

I have read good things about the Tramontina cast iron knock-off dutch ovens, but don't know much about their stainless. Until you posted your last reply, I was thinking it was like Le Creuset (only cheaper, obviously).

No matter the cost, if you love to cook it's at least a thoughtful gift from their perspective, right? :)

Don't know about the pan (will have to google that) but I love my Dutch oven for roasting (my lid is solid metal so it's easy to roast meats in), making a big pot of beans, and stews.

By the way, I want to adopt your sweet relative......I usually get things I don't need, Haha!
