Le Creuset stainless? Anyone have/use it?

I have been saving quite a while to buy nice cookware, and am definitely set on Le Creuset for a select few cast-iron pieces. However, I also need some "everyday" stainless pieces as well, and see LC has a tri-ply stainless line. Since they are comparable in price to other higher-end stainless brands, I am considering just ordering those from LC too. I am wondering if they are suitable for "heavy" use as everyday cookware? As in- will they hold up to a good deal of use & abuse and last as long as the cast iron? I currently have the most basic, cheap plastic-handled Farberware pots and pans for everyday and after 7 years of hard use, the handles are shot. I need an 8 and 9" frying pan, and a 2qt & 4qt sauce pot in stainless to beat up on a daily basis, so I can baby the cast iron and my much loved vintage enamelware collection

Your experiences and opinions are appreciated!
