How much should you spend on good cookware? and a copper gloat.

There are a lot of threads asking for inexpensive alternatives to pricey-brand cookware. A lot of posters argue that certain CH's recommendations are too expensive. I have always countered that the retail price of what the best costs has nothing to do with the price you pay for it.

Last week I started a thread about a Mauviel copper saute pan. For me, $130 for a 2mm copper stainless lined pan was too much (let alone the original MFSP of $300). However, today, I went back to the store. The pan has a few surface scratches but hey. It's marked $9.99. NOW it is worth it. :)
