Also, if you go to Costco's Canada site (don't think I can post links yet) they have the set online. It is not on Costco's USA site. Canada sells it for $299, but here it is $199. Just go to costco-dot-ca instead of dot-com.

Hope this helps.

The Tramontina can do that assuming reasonable care as with any other cookware.

Tramotina makes pans that range from low quality to very good. Cooks Illustrated said their try ply is comparable to All-Clad. I have had two Tramotina pans that are a step under the try ply for over thirteen years and they are still going strong! I don't know of any reason why they shouldn't last another fifty years.

How is it that Tramontina can sell a set of pans the equal of AllClad for less than one AllClad pan?
1) not US Made
2) not high grade pure metals (is this dangerous? not necessarily but could be)
3) durability: do you need pans to last into the next millennia?

that said, they probably do cook well. Will they hold together for 20, 30 40 years? Cooks Illustrated doesn't know that and neither do I. But multi ply bonded metals can fail.

Handles and how are they attached? your pans should be able to go into a 500* oven or under a broiler if your recipe calls for it.

Do you have a factual basis for this claim?

It might be worth mentioning to the gift giver that an early gift could ensure an especially spectacular holiday dinner...
