for 2 bills, you're not gonna get "great" in a 10 piece set, but you can still get a nice collection.
do you want a matching set for any reason? do you want all stainless steel, copper, stainless with non-stick, aluminum with non-stick, cast iron, etc.?
i'd recommend that you get a mix; some non-stick, some stainless.
as far as sets go, i've heard good things about the stainless steel sets sold in costco. i just bought and love a cheapie ($30) tramontina 5 qt. stainless sautee from there.
hey, where's caine and the le gourmet chef's cookware recommendation?
so, the more info you give, the more we can help.
