Any thoughts on the Puck line sold on HSN? I'm growing a bit weary of using my non-stick stuff. Recently picked up a Mario Batali Dutch Oven vs Le Creuset and an Emile Henry Tagine; soI'm finding that you can find some nice pieces without breaking the budget. I'm being lured by a 32 piece set that's available which includes an electric plate warmer for 319.00. Am I kidding myself that this could be decent stuff? Thanks in advance!

    It is fantastic; worth every penny.

      It's pretty good, well worth the price, but I wouldn't buy a 32-piece set of anything unless I was sure I'd use every piece. You can usually find open stock of the Puck Bistro collection at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, etc., it would be much cheaper to just hit a few of those places and pick up the pieces you actually use than to be stuck with half a dozen pans you never use.

      One minor detail is that the Puck stuff doesn't work on induction cooktops.

        I am with you in not buying sets, only open stock and I shop around there are some deals to be had if you keep your eyes open

          Thanks so much for the feedback...while I was waiting for responses...I was going back thru some threads that talked about the Member's Mark cookware at Sam's Club. I kept reading and reading all the while getting a bit more impressed with each new piece of information I found. When I learned that it was FULLY CLAD; I almost fell out my chair. I dug a little further and I kept reading all the positive comparisons to All-Clad. I couldn't take it anymore...I left my hubby and son watching the New England/Colts game and I took off for Sam's. I almost wept when I saw how beautiful the pots looked and felt in my hands! LOL! Needless to say I grabbed a set..OMG, they are fantastic! 21 piece set (includes spoons and measuring cups)for 179.00 yippee! Did I mention gorgeous??? I made a white sauce in the 1 1/2 quart just to test it and it came out wonderfully!!! Cleaning was a breeze! I boxed up all of my non-stick except the 14in skillet and now I'm good to go. My husband made oatmeal in one of the pots this morning and I almost fainted..lol! my pots are waaayyy too pretty for oatmeal. Thanks to all the previous posters that turned me on to this...can't believe I've walked past it for years thinking it couldn't be any good.
