I've noticed a few post about All Clad cookware.
If you're of the opinion that it's high quality cookware but just too expensive, you should try "Cookware & More". They are an outlet store which sells All Clad's seconds ... meaning they are slightly damaged (scratched for the most part) on the outside ONLY. They are still under full warranty (except for the scratches off course). I've ordered various items from their MC, LTD & Stainless collection & I'm still straining to see the scratches on most of them ... in any case, i've put more scratches on them since.
If you order 4 pieces, you get an additional "set discount" which brings the price roughly to 50% of retail. I've been very happy with their service ... once I had to return a piece and they reimbursed my shipping costs. Just remember to tell them you're in no hurry so that they choose the best pieces with the fewest scratches.
Now, I just visit department stores to view various sizes of pans before deciding which ones to get.
