Need advise - what all clad pots and pans to buy?

SJF | Nov 30, 2011 03:31 PM

I've been lucky to receive cash as a birthday gift and want to purchase my first all-clad pots and pans. At first, I was considering a set, (10 piece set at Macys) but the 10" and 8" fry pans and 3 qt saute pan seem too small for the cooking I do (family of 4). Also the set comes with an 8qt stock pan that I really don't think I need since I love my le creuset pan and use it quite frequently What all-clad 3-ply pans would you recommend? I'm considering
4 qt saute pan
3 qt sauce pan with lid
12" fry pan
2.5 qt steamer and pan

What else should I consider? Would all-clad pans be best for searing and making sauces?

These new pans will replace a very old Calphalon anodized set.

Thanks!
