The sales price is good! They sound great - I'd have to hold one to know if I personally liked it. I have seen the Viking cookware and have fallen in love with it. But even at cost it will they will be expensive - and I don't know the minimum order........yet 8)
i know what you mean--you can't tell for sure about them unless you see them in person. i can tell you that they were VERY heavy (i wondered if i'd even be able to pick one up full of water, food, etc!) and looked very well made. i have not actually seen the viking cookware in person but i can only imagine! i told my husband when we remodel the kitchen i want a viking range and he just laughed; i guess that's a no!
OK, I had to take a look to see if you posted where you live - when I met my husband he was living in the Tampa area - he wants to go back soooooooo bad. I guess when my son goes to college we'll think about it. I took him away from that beautiful weather and a 4-day work week - and he NEVER lets me forget it! :?
There are some ladies who just RAVE about how wonderful Scanpan is (on another forum). The threads I was following were more about their nonstick lines than the SS lines though, so I'm not sure what they'd say about that. I'd have to look into Scanpan's site a bit more myself. Does the SS set have the ceramic & titanium coating? Hmm, better go look.
Anyway, some of the others have had their Scanpan for over a decade & have added to them over time (but not replaced), if that helps.
