Where to Buy:
Le Creuset is having this cookware built in China which makes the price very attractive. The product is manufactured to their most strict specifications and the quality surpasses that of Calphalon stainless steel cookware. While the pots are somewhat heavy they are not at all hard to handle. The brushed stainless steel exterior is just beautiful .The easy pour rims, and the beautiful stainless steel lids make this cookware exceptional. The quality is excellent, quite similar to All Clad, with 3 ply layering which go from the bottom up to the sides of the pan: a must for even heating and cooking. The pots come with measure marks, and that is something we loved.
Compared to All Clad, this is a set of similar quality at a fraction of the price. You can expect to pay more than double for a similar All Clad set. So if you need quality but cannot afford All Clad, Le Creuset stainless steel is the way to go.
What you get with this All-Clad Stainless 8-Piece Cookware Set:
- 9.5″ Fry Pan
- 2-Quart Saucepan with Lid
- 3-Quart Saucepan with Lid
- 8″ nonstick omelette pan
- 7.25-Quart Stockpot with Lid
What we liked
This set is extremely well priced. In fact I am not sure why cooks are not grabbing these sets as fast as they make them. Maybe it is because they are not advertised and not endorsed by another celebrity chef (believe me, celebrity chef cookware is not necessarily good). In fact for the quality, I think it is a “steel” (…uh… steal)
We also liked the stainless steel lids. We definitely prefer those to the glass see-through ones that are so ever popular. The rims are designed in such a way that it make pouring easy without spilling. They also have those measure marks that we loved! Comfortable handles and nice enough weight. Not too heavy, not too light.
What we didn’t like
It is hard to find what is not to like about this cookware. It rivals All Clad although it is not made in the USA. It is really a fine piece of cookware, shall we say BETTER than Calphalon stainless steel and not necessarily better but almost equal to All Clad (and that is the best complement I could have for any piece of cookware) You need to check these prices too! This set, for its quality and beauty, is definitely affordable!
