Stainless steel set? too cheap? Help.

i am moving out + cash strapped and looking for a set of stainless steel

i already have a 12in cast iron pan, a cast iron dutch oven, a cast iron grill pan, a 10in and 12in non stick pans.

I like the cast irons but not using them all the time due to annoying cleanup. also dont like using the non stick on all foods.

I saw this stainless steel set in bed bath and beyond but i cant find it anywhere else and cant find any review. any ideas on how i can tell if it is actually a good set? can it actually be good for this price?

You already have several pieces that give you some versatility. Rather than buying a set, just add a couple of pieces to fill in what's missing from your collection.
