Paderno Sets - Copper or not?

Aaron3 | Apr 18, 2011 06:31 PM

Hey just a quick question for anyone who may know.

I am a new homeowner looking to purchase a set of pots and pans. I have found 2 different Paderno sets that I am considering. Please, any comments or advice would be much aapreciated. The two sets I am considering at:

Paderno 12 pc. Hearthstead (MSRP: $749.99)

Pro's of this set are:

1.Glass lids (I dont really care but my girlfriend likes the look and utility of them)
2.Larger Pot (The largest pot in this set is an 8L stock pot)

Con's of this set are:

1.Small Pot (Smallest pot is a 1L which seems to small to do anything with)
2.Two Frying Pans (Already bought a set of Logostina pans so these are just extra's)

The other set I am considering is:

Paderno 12 pc. Copperline (MSRP: $799.99)

Pro's of this set are:

1.Copper Lined (Is this really that big of advantage? Will I notice it for obviously not being a professional, scratch that, not really a cook at all)
2.Small Pot (Smallest pot is a 1.5L which is a bit better than the other one)
3.Steamer (Is this like a strainer? Is it useful?)

Con's of this set are:

1.Large Pot (Largest pot is only a 5L which may be a bit small for doing larger meals)
2.Stainless Steel Lids (As mentioned my girlfriend likes the clear lids)

I can get both of these sets for the same price so the cost is really not an issue. I just really want to know if the copper is really better to go with or being that we are not huge cooks would we even notice a difference?

As mentioned any information you may have would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
