So, Sam's did not have the set I went there for. I think it was Tramotina anyway. So I had to go next door to Walmart for some school supplies. And they had a 8 pc set of tri-clad Tramotina for $150. It was a return and the box was a mess. I asked for a discount, and got it for $75!
I think I will use all the pieces.
I just wish they were not made in China. But it is what I can afford right now, and from what I have read here and the online reviews, seems like I did okay.
Thank you for all your help!!
