Rachael Ray's Cookware

They have it on sale here where I live...would you buy the stainless steel or the porcelain?

I would think you could get better product for less. That said go for Steel.

I wouldn't buy either, frankly.

I've seen it and think it's grossly overpriced.

I saved a long time to buy this cookware..you get what you pay for and I am glad I got it. Not everyone can have the same views on things. I think Rachaels cookware is fantastic.

I am glad you like it.

In my opinion, however, you could have easily gotten much better quality cookware for your money.

You pay a lot of money for her name. Needlessly, IMO.

Maybe..maybe not...I searched alot of cookware and this is what I wanted. I saved up money to buy it and rewarded myself for saving the money..so I am happy for me. I looked at alot of cookware and this is what I decided to get. I really don't care if I paid for her name...I like the cookware and that is what I based my decision on..the cookware..how it looked and felt, etc..not her name.

Roxy, congrats on the new cookware. Doesn't it feel wonderful? I bought all new cookware the beginning of the year when I re-did my kitchen. I hadn't had good cookware because I didn't know how to cook. I never thought I'd get such a thrill out of new, great cookware!!! I got SS, too.

Just curious - what cookware do you consider better quality? Calphalon has a 10-piece set for $499, and All-Clad's is $299, while the Rachael Ray set can be had for $199. Gotta say, I'm not crazy about the orange handles on the RR set, though
