Experience with Lacor cookware

I've been recently looking for a large diameter (36 cm / 14 inch) sauté pan / rondeau / paella pan primarily for some bigger searing jobs. Sadly Fissler don't make one that size, so it's looking for alternatives for me. The Paderno 1100 low casserole or paella / french omelette (https://paderno.it/en/products/cookwa...) has been on the top of my short list for a while.

However, I recently came across two options by Lacor:
- Casserole (http://www.lacor.es/eng/catalogo/chef...)
- Paella pan (http://www.lacor.es/eng/catalogo/chef...)

I contacted Lacor, and they claim that these pans are made from 1.5mm thick 18/10 (AISI 304) steel with a 7mm thick aluminium capsule and 0.8mm of magnetic steel. For the casserole, they say that the disc is 34cm in diameter, which is really close to the edge. I'm not sure what the diameter of the paella's disc is.

So on paper, this seems like a really solid option, but I have heard little about Lacor cookware. I have quite a few small kitchen items from Lacor, which are all really good, but I'm not sure if they manufacture these themselves or not. So does anyone have any experience with Lacor cookware, in particular their "Chef Luxe" line?
