The 10 piece Rachel Ray (not a big fan of her colors and not swayed by celebrity named stuff), for $109.99 (after a $40 mail in rebate)

And the Kitchenaid 10 piece sets in S/S and Hard Annodized for $159.00 and both also come with a bonus 4qt covered sauce pan.

Talk about information overload.

Of I could just forgo the NEX and hit Bed Bath and Beyond (got a 20% off coupon for them but they have even more options to confuse me with.

i mostly cook with SS interior. i have 3 types.. copper+SS; tri-ply(Cuisinart Mulitclad); Aluminium-Disk+SS .. my experience is that the copper+SS & tri-ply outperform the Alum-disk+SS by enough of an amount to make the tri-ply a better choice. sides of the alum-disk+SS tend to heat differently from bottom and sometimes oil gets burnt which means more hard-cleaning. more importantly, food might come out a bit less evenly on saute items. note. for liquid dishes (sauces,soups) the alum-disk is fine. so i would wait till you get the Cuinsiart multiclad set on sale (alternatively, Tramontina has some good tri-ply at really good prices).
