I have been cooking for more years than I care to remember and I did that for a living at a five star resort.
This particular cookware set is quite simply " as good as it gets " and if you have the opportunity to buy this beautiful set at 70% off don't wait,,,run and get it now,,,
This is the best you will ever find,,,no exceptions at all !

It depends on whether the cookware set is on sale or not, what the sale price is, and what type of cooking your girlfriend likes to do.

If your girlfriend is serious about cooking and the set is at list price ($799), I would say no and recommend that you look at the 7-piece All Clad d5 stainless steel set at Williams Sonoma. It is $760 and although you get fewer pieces, the All Clad cookware is superior in terms of quality.

If it's on sale, then it could be worth it.

Question

you say that the cookset has non stick 'exterior' do you actually mean non stick 'interior' as that is where I would like them to be non stick?

This set is a two-ply design, with anodized aluminum on the outside and stainless steel on the inside (cooking surface). Anodized aluminum is not really "non-stick" but it doesn't matter either way because it's not the cooking surface.

the outside of the set is non stick. Very handy for the spills over the side. Wipes off easily!

No, the interior of the pots (aka where the food goes) is stainless steel. The exterior of the pots is stainless steel.

Hi trim,

I was able to find a screenshot of the box on another site, so here are the pot sizes :
There are 3 sauce pans with lids : 0,9L (1 quart), 1.9L (2 quart) and 2.8L (3 quart)
One stock pot (or Dutch Oven) : 5.7L (6 quart)
One frypan with lid : 24cm (9.5 inches)

Question

How does this compare to the 11-pc "Clad" Set?

I'm curious how this biclad set compares to the 3-ply "clad" 11-pc KitchenAid set also sold exclusively by CT (item # 142-2490-2)?

The 11pc set appears to be a better value (same price, but you get one more piece), but is this set "better"?

With the 3-ply clad, you also get the benefit of full stainless steel, which has the advantage of not potentially flaking off as the pots age.

The KitchenAid coating is a high-quality durable coating, but if you lay your pots freely in a full drawer where they may be contacting and rubbing against other pots, the stainless will not damage like the coated pots. The coating could flake or scratch off.

Both 142-2490 and 42-8589 have the same superior feature and benefits (Durable, Even Heating, Dishwasher safe, Suitable for all cooktops, etc. ) except the following:

1. 142-2490 is made of all stainless steel whereas 42-8589 is made of a combination of stainless steel and aluminum.

2. Both body and lid of 142-2490 are oven safe to 500°F/260°C but only the body of 42-8589 is oven safe to 500°F/260°C.

3. 142-2490 (11-pc) has more piece count than 42-8589 (10-pc) .

No they are not, normally when you invest in the high end cookware they do not have any type of coating.
