I bought the Tramontina 10-piece set a year ago, and just added the 8qt pot (set comes w/a 5 & 12 qt, but nothing in-between). Love the pasta-insert included with this! I rated these pots very highly last year and now after a full year of use, can confidently rate them as highly! I can't say enough about them! It was my 1st use of stainless cookware & I was nervous about sticking/hard to clean...not an issue! I use olive oil spray, but even without, a quick soak & clean-up is easy. Like other reviewers said, buy the barkeepers friend immediately (next to the comet/ajax in the cleaning supplies aisle of Target). Pots can look discolored, even when clean, but the barkeepers friend works like magic!! They still look brand new. Friends comment on how pretty the pots are, and they're heavy! Purchased the set after seeing the review on America's Test Kitchen/Cooks Illustrated...rated a close 2nd to All-clad. Makes me wonder if they're private-labeled by All-clad? Just saw 7qt all-clad w/ pasta insert on sur la table website for $399! Unless you're into brand names & have $ to burn, why pay hundreds more? What a great value...so glad I purchased!
