And only buy a set if you are sure you'll get lots of use out of each and every piece.

Good cookware is worth the $$. IMO it's worth the extra $$ to buy a fully clad pan rather than something like Emerilware, which is not fully clad and for which you are paying a "celebrity" premium.
Not really though. Goto your local library and look at the december 05 consumer reports magazine. A 10 piece set of Kitchen aid cookware for 150 bucks was the best performer for a stainless steel stick version set. Emerilware came in third place.

Kitchenaid is not fully clad, is it? If not, you are comparing apples and oranges.

America's Test Kitchen pretty consistently rates AC as one of the best.

I checked out the KA website and this is what I found.

Edited to add:

There are three different lines of cookware from 5-ply on down. I can expect the 5-ply line to perform like All-Clad as they come with All-Clad prices.

my post got deleted and posted back: 212 stainless steel set!
Hi everyone, I am so new to this web but I love this place. I found this place last night and I spent hours to read a lot of great thoughts and ideas about cookwares and knives.
Any way, I saw on tv has a cookwareset called twotwelve set, good price for stainless steel or non-stick, it looks like a good set but have anyone ever used it or any thoughts about it? Please help me out because I don't have to much $$$ to spend and I know all-clad or calphalon are good but they cost a lot too me, I have a calphalon 10" non-stick and I love it. Hope someone can tell me about twotweleve because I can't find any review online, I really wonder if twotweleve are any good???, thank you all !

t0 "urmaniac13:
can you see the differences? I can't. mine was deleted because they thought it was an AD. I don't know if you know what I had to do to get my post back to the thread but tell me the difference about these 2 posts urmaniac13, thanks

Even from the Consumer reports december 05 report All-Clad cookware did not get first place in the non-stick arena.

A 150 buck set from Costco from Kirkland was the best.


You do not need to spend the money for the real all-clad to have a great set of cookware.

i just looked at the bottom of my favorite stainless steel 8 qt. stock pot (that was handed down to me by my mom when i moved into my first apartment) and found out that it is farberware. it was one of her first pots when she married my dad, back in the late 40's.
it is still going strong, coming up on nearly 50 years of everything from cooking to soaking sore feet. (i know, that's gross, but it wasn't at the same time. mom had to improvise at times with so many kids, so little time, and a tight budget)

lol, i guess you could make kimchi and soak your feet at the same time, and no one could tell the difference...

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"
