Bed, Bath & Beyond is offering a 13 piece Calphalon tri-ply stainless/aluminum core cookware set (NOT non-stick) for $399. They regularly send out %20 off coupons, and $5 off coupons. This mail-flyer ad states purchasing of $300 of Calphalon earns you a $50 BB&B gift card. I called and was assured all three discounts could be applied to the purchase of this set. So as long as you plan on being able to use that $50 gift card at some point in the future, the final cost is $317.
The set consists of:
8" fry pan
10" fry pan
1 1/2 quart, 2 1/2 quart, 4 1/2 quart sauce pans
(with tempered glass lids)
6 qt. stock pot w/ lid
6 qt. pasta insert
3 qt. saute pan/chicken fryer w/ lid
The reason this set seems so exciting at this price is that if it urns out upon inspection that this is a thick All-Clad clone, it's a fabulous price. I haven't gone to check it out yet, but I have been buying single pieces of the Henckels 3 ply All-Clad clone, and I love it. But this Calphalon
would be even less expensive still. Also, the angle of the handle of the Henckels is a bit strange (check it out at TARGET.COM) but the picture of the Calphalon handle looks perfect.
