Thanks, but those aren't quite like the ones I have. Here are a couple of not really good pictures.

That is there Triply Clad stainless series. Walmart and Sears are the best pricing I have seen on that series.

125west.com has it Tramontina Triply Clad

None of the Walmart's in this area carry the tri-ply clad series. I got mine at Tuesday Morning, just by luck.

I have a nice, big, heavy bottomed stock pot I got from Sam's by them about 8 years ago that I love!
My favorite for making my large batches of spaghetti sauce.

I purchased a Tramontina Pressure cooker, the 6 quart from QVC and I used it for months. It didn't come in with a full instruction manual. I did not know that the valve unscrewed, and I never took it out. It was made of bakelite. One day I was making potatoes, and it melted and sprayed potato all over the kitchen.

I called Tramontina and they explained how to clean the valve. Also I was releasing the pressure when the pot was hot. They suggest that you let it cool first. So, it is a bit finnicky.

I returned it to QVC and bought the 8 quart instead.

I have been taking better care of it. If I cook on LOW to LOW MEDIUM, and never release the pressure when it is hot, and remove it from the heat if I need to lower the pressure, and wash the valve every time, and wash the rubber band seal and oil the seal each time before you use it, ALL SHOULD BE WELL.

It looks beautiful. The stainless steal is well made. The bakelite and bands are the finnicky parts. I think all pressure cookers have their specific issues.

i can't find a wal-mart or sam's in texas or louisiana that carries the tri-ply line by tramontina.

i guess i'll have to order online.

Dec. 7th update: i found a wal-mart that carried this line and i scored a 3 qt sauce pan and a 12" fry pan... both tri-ply and total costs was $83 with tax.

Just today I was looking at Amazon and the exact same model sells there for $89. I couldn't believe it!! At WM now they have Tramontina Clad cookware and I am thinking of getting another skillet. If anyone here is in the market for good quality stainless for cheap, check it out!!
