Is a warranty on stainless steel pots/pans important?

I was wondering what everyone thought. When I buy non-stick things, I look for things that usually have a lifetime warranty (at least a limited lifetime warranty) although I'm not really sure if the warranty would cover much in the end. What about stainless steel? I see some pots/pans that I might want to get and they're much cheaper second hand (through ebay or craigslist). I'm fine with them being used or just being display models but this probably gives me no warranty since I don't have the original receipt. This stuff isn't super expensive but it's much nicer getting a good deal even if it's second hand for me. Would it be worth the extra cost to just buy it in store but to have that warranty?
