Does anyone like this cookware as much as me? They actually sell it at Wal-Mart. Several years ago I bought a stock pot with a locking strainer lid for $20 at Sam's Club. It is my favorite piece of cookware, well one of them. Anyway, it was one of those one time deals so I was really glad I got one. 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!!

I have a couple of Tramontina pieces as well. I have an 8" clad skillet and a 12-quart stock pot with a disk on the bottom and a glass lid. They both are very good and do what they designed to do without a problem.

I have a couple pieces of the tri-ply clad, looks and feels like All-Clad. I love it, but it is very hard to find in single pieces. Tuesday Morning is where I found mine. I have checked Wal-Mart around here but they don't carry the tri-ply clad. I didn't find it cheap, the 1.5 qt pan was around $40 and the 2 qt. over $50!

I got a double boiler and was surprized at the quality actually.

I also got a thin cheap non-stick set when I could not make up my mind which cookware to get so I got that to hold me over. The double boiler was obviously from a much higher line.

many of their pieces are made in the USA once again! I have a few of their "restaurant" pans.

i have two, green 6.5 qt dutch ovens by tramontina from wal-mart. i bought them when they were $39.99. now, those same items are $51.97 at wal-mart.

however, you can get the same exact dutch oven by tramontina (different color) at sam's club for $38.99!!!

i also have the 3.5 qt tramontina dutch oven that i use to cook rice and grits.

now, if wal-mart is carrying the clad line, i'll have to stop-by soon... i have NO PROBLEMS with this cookware.

I use the tramontina in the professional kitchen... there straight stainless steel is one of the few I have found that can take the commercial kitchen environment.

Love the stuff
