My wife and I bought this set in our local Walmart over three years ago. Since then, we have added to the set by purchasing a 12" covered deep fry pan, an additional 10" fry pan, 8 qt. Covered Stock Pot with stainless steel Pasta Insert, a 12 qt. stock pot, and a 5.5 Qt Covered Round Porcelain Enamel Dutch Oven (red), and to amuse my wife, a 12" non-stick 12" deep fry pan (Alum. w/red finish).
Regardless of what people say, until you use quality cookware, you have no idea what you are missing out on. These pots and pans heat evenly, don't scorch (unless you cook over too high a heat or too dry ingredients), and they clean up easily--and when I say easily, I've NEVER used Bar Keeper's Friend on our cookware, only dish liquid soap and a kitchen sponge; and I use wooden utensils to prevent scratching.
I found the original 8 piece set on clearance and quickly snatched up two more for gifts. If you have the opportunity and the means to purchase a tri-ply clad set of Tramontina or even if only an 8" fry pan for eggs and omelets (which by the way it is perfect for omelets-start on the stove top, finish in the oven), you should treat yourself to such a nice product of great quality at a very fair price.
