And, when you buy All-Clad or Calphalon, you are not only paying for your pan, you are also paying for every pot and pan they give to television chef's, free fer nuthin, to use on their programs, so you can't win unless you buy no-name brands, which is exactly what I did. I bought Le Gourmet Chef'
s tri-ply stainless line, first receiving a 7 piece set as a birthday gift, then filling in whith other pieces over the years, for about 1/3 of the price of All-Clad, and, quality-wise they are every bit as good, with the same no-nonsesnse guarantee.
