jcpenney cooks ss cookware - anyone used?

grace58January 7, 2007

I'm in the market for some stainless steel cookware and cannot find any reviews or comments on these. Has anyone used them or handled them?

I've noticed that these department store brands of cookware are very good looking, but the aluminum disk at the bottom of the pan is inferior to a triply construction. In other words, these sorts of cookware are not lifelong pots and pans. If you are looking for an inexpensive tri-ply set, check the Sam's and Costco brands. Make certain that any glass lidded cookware you buy has tempered glass. I have the Calphalon tri-ply, and when you buy it in a 13 piece $399 set at Linens 'n Things using a 20% off coupon ($319), you get a free $50 Linens n' Things gift card as well.

I have several pieces of the Cooks tri-ply cookware. It is excellent cookware. Does not have the aluminum disc on the bottom of the pan. It is tri-ply. I also have the Sam's club tri-ply cookware. I like both equally. As far as I am concerned, both cook and look similar. I also gave a set of the Cooks to my daughter's boyfriend for Christmas. He is a chef and he loves them. I would not hestiate to buy the Cooks.
