You asked which specific set is better, so I'd have to say the hard anodized aluminum set, just because the entire pot or pan is made of aluminum, which will disperse the heat evenly throughout the entire surface of the pan, while the Cuisinart stainless only has an aluminum disc in the bottom, which means that the heat distribution will not be the same on the sides as it is on the bottom.

I'm a guy who does dishes, by hand, simply because I can easily run out of flatware long before I can fill the dishwasher with dishes and glasses.

No, I hate Florida. Too humid and too many bugs. How do you feel about California?

I like both, would let me drive my summer car year around instead of just 3 seasons

Thanks for the opinion Caine. Does that REALLY matter if I have an electric stove though? I was under the impression that mattered mostly for gas because the flames could reach the side.
