Ew, don't buy it at that price. Here's a tip: Get em from Macy's.
It's a 10 piece set for 600. But they include the grill pan, the book, an oven mitt, tongs and shish kebab skewers for "free". On top of that, if you have a Macy's card and buy it online as your first purchase online, they give you 20% off your entire order the first go round. When I went and bought my set, I threw in a saucier from All-Clad (love it), some knives, a nice accessories kit, a Griddler (from Cuisinart), and a bunch of other random things I had my eye on--grand total came out to about 1600 bucks. I got it all (including the shipping) for less than 1300. If I had just done the pots and pans set with the saucier, the grill pan, etc. it would have only run 540 bucks.
As to the handles? They just take getting used to. People aren't used to that concaved design. But what they fail to realize is that design is why the handles don't get nearly as hot as other stainless steel wear will. Whoever says they get hot hasn't tried a lot of the other types out there. Those are the coolest touch handles for SS I've ever owned (and I've gone through a number of brands)
