Well I am on a quest to get a nice fry pan and saute pan to be the main pans in my kitchen. I am looking to do some searing, pan sauces, pilafs, pop it in the oven with blackened fish, etc. I am debating on sitram/tramontina/paderno but ran into some peices of this stuff for pretty cheap. I cant find any reviews on it, but it has a massive 5mm copper base and stainless interior. Not sure if its a superior design than the clad ones or just more of a pain to deal with the copper.
Its the Marco Pierre White Heat Collection 1003 Stainless Steel from beka line. I found saute pan for $40 and fry pan for $30. (at marshalls)
