Macy's is clearing out their Proline series
cookware. 60% off open-stock.
8-pc set $100, 10-pc set $120.
They look good,
hard-anodized aluminum, Whitford nonstick coating.

Can anyone comment on the quality?

Thanks.

if it is in the store they will get it on the website eventually. Sometimes it does take them a while though.

portah, I got mine in the store. I like them. The only thing I don't like is the handle is a little thinner than I'm used to and it does not have rounded edges and is a little harder to handle and hold than the one I'm used to. But all in all I like them, and for $20-some dollars they were well worth the money.

kitchenelf,

Are you referring to the Macy's Proline
or the Tramontina set?

Recoat your fry pans

Good cookware can be expensive. If you have a set that is about ready to be tossed, think again. You can have your favorite fry pans recoated. Better quality, better price than buying new, environmentally friendly. Check it out www.frypanman.com

Sorry PortAh, I just noticed your post today - I apologize for the delay.

I am talking about the Tramontina set of 3. It's great for what we need them for and so far they seem to be holdiing up pretty well for as inexpensive as they were.

Thanks for the info KelliT - that's good to know when you have one of those pans that just "feels" right in your hand.

calphalon

Are you talking about the commercial hard-anodized? I just bought a few pieces and got them via UPS this week. How well do they stand up to things like stacking and the occasional knocking around? I try to be careful with everything but I have a ton of clutter in my cabinets. I've read all about how to clean and how not to clean them though.

I got my stuff cheap, The 9" skillet with lid (Amazon Gold Box -- $17.99 !!!!!) and the extra large set (12qt stock with lid, 5qt saute pan with lid, and 12" omlette pan) for $99.

I've still got my mother's old revereware until I can finish out the collection.

I use just the plain Calphalon, not the non-stick. However, I do like a couple skillets to be non-stick for eggs and such. Cookware is such a personal thing and I'm sure you'll find everyone likes something a little different.

I don't like a shiney finish because they start showing scratches very soon, I don't like everything to be non-stick because I like to use my whisk a lot, I would love to have a few copper pieces but haven't gotten around to it (they are great conductors of heat). I really like that matte gray finish of the calphalon because it holds up well, though you do have to clean it properly AFTER EACH USE. I've had a set for 15 years and they still look new.
