Question about Tri-Ply Set from Sam's Club

Sam's Club-Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Cookware Set - 7 pc.

This is a tri-ply set, it is made in China (not fond of that) but otherwise any opinions?

The site's review tab show 2 glowing reviews. I'm never sure if those reviews are real or just clever marketing.

It only costs $130 dollars so there doesn't seem to be much risk involved. A single piece of All-clad can go for more.

Buy it and try it out. If you don't like it, return it for a refund.

That is good advice!!
After reading lots of posts here, I am very leery of purchasing a set. But this is a very small set with pieces I know I will use all the time.
Thank you!

It's a small set and looks good. There is very little on the market today that isn't made in China. As .40 said, if there is a problem, return it.

The Saute pan is kind of small but that may be OK for your situation.

I'd check out your local Sam's Club and buy it there if possible. then you can take it home right away and return it more easily if necessary.

Good luck.
