Best stainless steel pots & pans set for $200-$250?

I'm looking to upgrade to a really nice set of all stainless steel pots & pans that will last me many many years. My budget is $200-$250 (or cheaper if there is a great closeout deal)

I went around to my local stores, Kohls, who sell Cuisinart, Bobby Flay & a couple of others, Target has two different Giada De Laurentiis stainless steel set & they seem pretty nice. Price is $200 for regular set & $250 I think for the Tri-something or other kind.

Any help on what to get? Is the Giada set worth it or is there a better quality option? I've heard mixed reviews on Cuisinart & Chaphalon sets so I'm really confused.

I'm not opposed to ordering online to get a better deal/higher quality for my budget or less. In fact I would rather do something like that to get the best bang for my buck. I'm in no rush so I can wait for the shipping.

Is anyone have a closeout sale or a really good coupon right now?

I want an all stainless set with no coating on the handles so they can all easily go in the oven. I guess I want metal lids over glass? I don't know if I have a preference for that really.

Thank you!
