Additional pieces to Cuisinart French Classic set, feedback needed

So I returned some items to BB&B I wasn't happy with and had a credit. I ended up getting the 11 piece Cuisinart French Classic set there. I'd have preferred metal lids, but BB&B only carries the glass ones.

I'm going to add a 12" pan for sure from the line (8" and 10" just are too small for most things when I need a big skillet) and was considering adding the 5.5 quart saute as well. I'd love to add another 2 qt or a 3 qt saucepan, but unfortunately they don't seem to sell any separately.

So, opinions on adding a 5.5 qt saute? How useful do you think it would be?

For info, I also have a Lodge combo cooker, an 8 qt Staub dutch oven, the De Buyer carbon steel crepe pan and 9.5" fry pan they carried at World Market a little over a year ago, apparently receiving the French Classic crepe pan by mail-in-rebate, a Tramontina SS stockpot with strainer (8 qt???) I won from Sam's, and a 12" older than the hills non-stick pan with the coating still in decent shape. I'd like to add a 12" Lodge fry pan at some point as well and a Staub Braiser (still trying to decide size / find a sale).
