This is my first post here...I hope it's okay that I'm jumping right in! I've been reading here for months and so many of your names have become familiar to me as I've researched SS cookware, knives, the KitchenAid mixer, and so on. Feels strange to finally posting!
After reading countless threads and reviews, I've decided in invest in a few pieces of the Tramontina SS Triply that is sold at Wal-Mart. I know it's normally only sold online, so I was surprised to find what I think are the same pieces in my WM store last night. They did say 18/10 Stainless Steel Triply, and the only thing different from the ones I've been looking at online was the addition of the word "Gourmet" after Tramontina. The shape of this Gourmet line is exactly the same as the one I've looked at honline, even though the Tramontina Gourmet line on Amazon has more of a "potbelly" shape, if that makes sense.
It was a litle confusing, since the WM website didn't show any of the pieces in stock at my local WM, yet I found 2 of the 10-piece sets plus about 6 open stock items.
Any input would be much appreciated!
