If you want some stainless steel for less than 200 bucks with shipping buy this set.

Go to Le Gourmet Chef and check out their tri-ply stainless. These pots and pans are equivalent to All-Clad in quality, weight, performance, and guarantee.

Right now they're having a sale, and you can buy individual pieces or different size sets. I have had these for several years, starting with a 7 piece set I got as a birthday gift, and building on them from there. I currently have everything you see in the 12 piece set, plus a 3 quart "dutch oven" style sauce pan and a teflon coated 10-inch fry pan.

Order on the net, or click the STORE LOCATOR tab to find out if there is a retail store near you. They are usually located in Outlet Malls.

gourmet chef and kitchen konnection both have house brands of tri ply, which I like better than thin stainless with a disc bottom. But if you want that the Jamie Oliver set is quite good. You want at least one silver stone pan for eggs.

You can also go shopping at Marshalls/Home Goods and someties get quite a bargain. If you want the grey anodized aluminum, Emeril Ware or Ikea can help you.

aluminum does not have a direct link to alzheimers. but untreated aluminum (unpolished or not anodyzed, reacts with acidic foods, discoloring and imparting a metalic taste.) Aluminum is a goo dheat conductor. have a look at www.fantes.com and go to their cookware tutorial.
