Kirkland vs. Belgique vs. Calaphon $199.00 Each..
Macy's is advertising a Belgique 14 piece copper bottom cookware set for $199.00. Saucepans, casserole, stockpot, inserts, steamer, frying/saute pans. If purchased separtely $400, regular price is $300.00 That is the blurb under the ad in today's paper.
Costco has CirculonÂ® heavy gauge hard anodized aluminum cookware offers excellent heat control with extraordinary performance and durability, and is twice as hard as stainless steel. The nonstick exterior provides the added ease of quick and painless cleanups. The interior has the TOTALÂ® nonstick system which combines a state of the art nonstick formula with our Hi-Low wave technology surface that will outlast all other nonstick guaranteed. Tempered glass lids are self clearing so you can view the cooking process without lifting the lid, and riveted cast stainless steel handles have silicone rubber grips for improved comfort. Cookware is oven safe to 400Â° F.

And then, there is the Costco Kirkland set that I can get only at a Costco store, and I don't have a description, but it is to my opinion, what I was going to get. It seems comparable to All Clad to me.
So.. what is the best way for me to blow 200 dollars?
