Becauser the poster might want stuff to come in the mail, might want family-sized pots and pans, and rest. isn't always cheaper. The WSJ did a survery of these sorts of sets and I think this set did okay--the handles weren't the strong suit.
T-Fal is swell in my opinion. My husband is a working chef, and we use some rest. stuff--but most of it is too big for a home stove, home diswasher and home storage.
I recently got the 3.5 quart deep saute pan. I got it because a magazine review said that at $60 it held its own against the pricier big names, and I found it for $50 on amazon.com and got free shipping. I'm not a hard core cook, but it's great for what I've been making in it(sauces, veggies and meat for 2-4 people). The magazine review said one drawback is that it doesn't have a second handle like the more expensive brands, but I didn't have any problem taking my frittata out of the oven the other day. I just used a potholder to brace the bottom for extra support when I lifted it out. It works for everything I need it for and when I get home from work too late to cook dinner, I don't have to feel guilty about the $200 saute pan languishing away in the cabinet. Hope this helps.
