I am looking to purchase my first nice quality stainless steel skillet. Since this kind of thing really is an investment, I'm willing to spend a little more to get something that is really high quality and will last a long time. That being said, although my initial research seemed to show that the All-Clad stainless steel skillets were the way to go, I was just on the Sur La Table website and I noticed that they have their own line of stainless steel skillets that are much cheaper (the All-Clad 12" is about $140, and the Sur La Table one is about $60). They seem similar in specs -- tri ply with a center aluminum layer covered by stainless on either side. Does anyone have experience with these pans, and if so, do you think they are comparable to the All Clad? I'm new to this market so I'm not sure what other criteria I should be paying attention to.
