Mauviel M'pure Aluminum Cookwares
Anyone has any experience or opinion on this line of cookware from Mauviel? Spent and hour scouring the web but seems there's not much information available on their M'pure products. This is Mauviel's aluminum pieces with the white(?) nonstick interior.
I'm curious because I see a few pieces being offered by one of those daily deals website (not sure if it's permissible to post/name site so I'll refrain) for very reasonable prices and I'm tempted. I've own one nonstick pan previously, the surface delaminated early on so I never considered another piece since. The pan I'm looking at is priced at about half the price of a comparable All-Clad fry pan. Jump on it? Or mosey along?
No experience, but my opinion is that if the entire line is like the M'Pure roasters, it is serviceably thick, at 4-6mm. Ever since Napoleon made aluminum desirable, French makers have played with it. Even Gaillard made a very thick aluminum line (and other esoterics).
Not sure about non-stick, and even less so if it's white...
FWIW, our learned fellow CH, timirvine, has a Mauviel copper skillet in non-stick that he praises all around.
Post the link if you want an opinion on value.
Thanks for the quick replies, and the link - spent the last hour drooling all over that site.
The web merchant hawking the non-stick Mauviel is "Glit", the piece I'm considering is the 28cm/11in pan for $50:
I suppose the desire is to have a no-brainer pan to whip up a quick breakfast(eggs/french toast/hash browns) with one foot still in bed, and more importantly quick cleanup. I've been using a stainless, and for the most part it works but it requires a certain amount of sunrise-consciousness that's becoming hard to find with each passing year.
While price point is important I suppose the issue that's on the forefront of my mind is to purchase something that lasts and is not designed as being disposable. Is that even realistic with non-stick?
*Glit is one of those website that requires a login to browse their sales, so I'm not certain if the link will work for everyone; below is a link to a secondary site for the same product:

You are allowed if you want to.

These pure aluminum cookware from Mauviel are indeed made out of aluminum. So they are certainly belong to a different kind of beast than the triply All Clad. Half the rice of a comparable All Clad is actually too expensive for aluminum pan. If you are into pure aluminum cookware (with or without nonstick coating), then you are better off buying from restaurant supply stores.
