Given the reviews here and elsewhere, I am going to ditch my plans for All-Clad and purchase the 7-piece Cuisinart Multiclad set for $189 on Everything Kitchens (lowest price I could find). I am buying the set since I would have bought these exact items anyway for more money.
Anyway, I am now in the market for a good pasta steamer. The Cuisinart Chef's Classic 4-Piece 12-Quart Pasta/Steamer Set looks OK, but I'd rather not have 4 pieces (takes up too much space, and I just need the 12 qt pot and steamer) and I would rather pay less than $79. I am also open to a smaller pot and steamer, say an 8qt.
