Best Way to Buy All-Clad?

Madronatree | Oct 28, 2012 09:41 PM

My husband and I are disillusioned with our Calphalon One nonstick cookware and are planning to switch to All-Clad. I was wondering if there is a good way to buy a starter set, or if I should just jump in? I am taking a class at Sur La Table in a couple weeks, and they typically give a 20% off coupon to use during the week after the class. That puts the 10-piece (tri-ply) SS set and the 7-piece D5 set both at $560. Do you think that's as good as it's going to get, price-wise? I appreciate any insights.

Also, if anybody has any thoughts on SS versus D5, I'd love to hear them. We're using a gas range so invection-usable is not an issue for us... though who knows, maybe it will be in the next house, 20 years from now.
