KitchenAid Gourmet Distinctions SS set
I am in the market for a new set of cookware. I have made up my mind to go with SS. I am very close to grabbing this 10 piece set but am curious if anyone has any opinions.
The set comes with:
Three sauce pans and lids (1 1/4, 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 quart)
One 8 quart stock pot with lid
2 skillets, 8 & 10 inch
This set has a full cap base of two layers of aluminum sandwiched around a copper layer.
It also has the tappered side walls that provide a larger surface area at the top. I have read that this is a nice advantage to have that aids in reductions and makes stirring and wisking easier.
It is listed at Kohl's for $279. Right now on sale for $199, plus I can get my mother-in-law to buy it for me and receive an additional 15% off, bringing the price down to $169.
Does anyone have any opinions on this set specifically or this type of set generally?
I'd really appreciate any help.
Thanks a bunch.
