Better Homes and Gardens 10-Piece Tri-Ply Clad 18/10 SS set

Hi I'm new this is my first post here. Looking for some input, good or bad.

I just bought this cookware set from Walmart because it was affordable and was 18/10 and tri-ply. Apparently Tramontina is making these Better Homes & Gardens sets. All the reviews look good. I've used the set a few times now and I do think they're quality pieces. Anyone have any experience with these, anything bad or good to say about them?

I picked up this set for 89 bucks, I know you "get what you pay for" but these actually seem pretty nice! Although I must admit, I've never cooked on anything else except cheap teflon and some old SS Revere set...

I would hand wash and not use high heat. Heat the pan before adding oil. A friend gave me one of the skillets when she bought the set and didn't need it. It will stick badly with high heat and might discolor. I think it is a good value for the price though.

It looks like a decent set. The pieces are ones you would acutally use a lot. I think you'll have no problems and lot of enjoyment using it.

I see no reason to hand wash only. It's SS, same as knives, spoons and forks.

My SS clad set goes through the dishwasher and has now for a few years, no harm done and they still look great.

Better Homes and Gardens is a Walmart private label brand. If they are made by Tramontina, they will be a good quality set. Walmart carried the Tramontina clad set for a while, so maybe they decided to put their name on a good thing.
