Try to find a smaller set of SS and then look for a set of HA sautee pans to make up the difference in price that you would pay for the full set of SS. I did notice that the handles on the SS set were higher on the covers. Easier cover removal and less burnt fingers. More room for the pot holder.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
