my replacement all-clads came, and they're not the same

Three of our All-Clads warped so badly, we really couldn't use them on our glass-top stove. Rather than grumble about our expensive mistakes, I contacted All-Clad and was told to send them back.

The new pans arrived this week and while they're flat, they're not the same. The inside finish on the two stainless models is more buffed and shows "rings" of metal. The pans feel lighter than the ones we sent back, and frankly, look cheaper.

The nonstick pan is a little better, but doesn't have that satisfying weight of our original All-Clads.

At this point, there's not much we can do. We're grateful for the replacements, of course, as one of the pans was 9 years old.

Has anyone noticed a difference in their All-Clad quality?
