So, so. Save up and invest in top quality that will last you a lifetime. Do it one piece at a time if needs be. It's worth it and you'll thank yourself in the long run.

Allclad's a bit expensive. Farberware and Revere USED to be adequate, don't know how they are now. Try buying one of the more affordable Allclad SS pots or pans that you have a need for and another from Tamontina (Brazilian manufacture). That way you'll have a basis for comparison.

Red face Good cookware

That is what I do. I go tired of using second rate cookware and started looking for bargains in good cookware. Some of the larger department stores often have "try me" pieces of the really good stuff. They run from $20.00 to about $40.00.

And recently I started haunting the off price stores. You know the kind we see them adevertised all the time. I recently got a really good spring pan that I had seen at one of the MAJOR department stores on sale for $16.99 at one of the off price stores for $4.99!!!

No my pieces don't all match, but I can get the ones that best suit my needs at prices I can afford!!

Sorry to run on so long.

Meant to say Tramontina not Tamontina.

Of the 4 you mentioned, All Clad is in a class by itself. It is among the better cookware you will find. You will pay for that quality though. If you have the money to spend on it then it is worth the cost (even if you are partially paying for the name). I can not speak specifically to the others as I do not have personal experience with most of them recently, but they each will have their positives and negatives. If money is no object though then go with All Clad and you will be very happy.

One of the better places to shop for All-Clad is here Cookware & More : Selling All Clad Irregulars Since 1984

I have managed to get a full matching set of anolon cookware, bakeware and knives from Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Ross. It took awhile, but when I look at what the pieces cost in Department stores and specialty stores it was more than worth it
