Does anyone know about this set (or pieces)
I called them to find out how thick the individual layers are and it took a couple of tries before one of the helpful ladies called up the manufacturing facility and got me the following details
Outer layer is 0.5 mm of copper
Inner core is 2.5 mm of aluminum
Cooking surface layer is 0.5 mm stainless steel
Bottom disk is 6 mm of aluminum
To top it off, this is induction compatible. Obviously, this is not a Prima Matera by DeBuyer which is 1.8mm copper and .2 mm steel and is also induction compatible, however, it has glass lids (which I like) and rolled edges (do not know yet how they will pour).
The list price is 699 but available at BBB for 499.
I had already placed an order for this and once I found out that outer copper is only 0.5 mm, I cancelled the order, however, it has already shipped, arrived and sitting in my garage.
I can return it to BBB for a full refund and go Prima Matera ($$$) but that burns a king-size hole in my wallet or if someone has some experience here, I would want to know about it.
