New Costco Cookware Finds

Found this morning on Costco's website:

A pair of All-Clad frypans for $190. Totally yawn-worthy, but then they added lids. The 10" has a domed lid, the 12" has a flat lid. That's much better.

I also spotted a brand I've not seen before, Saber. They've got an 11-piece 5-ply set for $350. They look like Mauviel knock-offs. Anyone heard of these before?

  1. I'm thinking it is a Costco rebrand. Their website is pretty sparse when it comes to actual info and the Purchase button leads directly to

    Not that speaks to their quality, of course.

      Could be. A lot of stuff is. I'm used to seeing Costco put their Kirkland label on a lot of things. Some of it is high quality, some not. I wonder why they didn't, if this is a Costco rebrand. Their brand is generally well-regarded.

      I'm so on the fence about these 5-ply pans with steel as the middle layer, like AC's D5. I haven't had a chance to use any of it yet, so have to reserve judgement. I'm so wedded to increasing conductivity that it's hard to see it as an advantage. But it might be the best thing since sliced bread.

      I'll be at Costco next week, perhaps they'll be in stock. I'd like to see how thick the layers are.

        You have six months to return. What is the risk?
