Stainless Steel/Nickel Composite.... Did I Make a Mistake?
I'm new here and hoping someone can help me understand what I've just bought.
I was in need of some new pots and pans, and although I wanted good ones, I can't afford the really good ones. At JCPenney, I found a pretty 8 piece set of stainless with copper bottoms on sale for $119 (reg. $199), so I bought them, plus a matching large covered skillet for $40 (reg $99).
When I got them home and upacked, I discovered that they are actually a stainless steel/nickel composite. Is this common? Have I messed up, do they need to go back? I'm concerned about things like warping and pitting, especially as the care instructions warn that I should take care to avoid doing things to cause that.
