This Tramontina Tri-Ply clad line was reviewed as comparable in quality and functionality to All-Clad by Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen. So, I decided to give it a try. I am happy! I have cooked eggs, fish, shrimp scampi, and chicken thighs so far. As long as the pan is heated slowly and a little oil is added, food does not stick to the sleek stainless interior and heat seems to be evenly distributed. I never turn my gas burner up any higher than medium even to get a nice brown exterior. Add a little liquid to the pan to loosen the brown bits and clean-up is very easy. If a little film remains, some Bartender's Friend or Bon Ami takes it right off. I like the double small side handles instead of one small and one long and the lid fits perfectly. I gave a four rating in some categories because of several things: the cooking surface could be a little larger (the sides slope in) and the pan can scratch if you use metal utensils. Otherwise, this is an excellent buy. I just might buy the set. Maybe I'll try a piece of the Better Homes and Gardens version with the glass lids for comparison first. I believe this is the new clad set also made by Tramontina.
