18/0 cookware - should I keep it?

arossphoto | Nov 18, 2007 07:11 PM

I bought a couple pieces of Lagostina cookware yesterday at Winners (a clearance store here in Canada) that had labels clearing indicating it was 18/10 stainless. However, when I got home I decided to do the magnet test and it stuck to every piece of this stuff. Apparently this means it is 18/0 with no nickel content.

They are nice looking pans with thick bottoms and riveted metal handles, but now I'm not sure if I want to keep any of it. Will it really make much difference if it isn't 18/10?
