Help: Sam's Club 's 'Member's Mark' Tri Ply stainless cookware?
I am considering buying tri-ply stainless cookware but cannot afford All Clad. I was at Sam's Club recently and saw the Member's Mark tri-ply stainless set for $129. (It had 11 pieces). Does anyone have any comments on this set? I'm trying to decide if I should get this set or Calph Tri Ply Stainless.
Also, if I were to get only one item, which is more versatile: the saute pan or the frying pan? And, should it be 3 quart (which is usually 10 inches wide) or the 12 inch frypan? (We are a family of 4 with itty bitty kids who don't eat much). And do I really need to replace my stainless saucepans and stockpot (they have some kind of core on the bottom though not completely covering the base) with tri ply counterparts?
Thanks for your advice!
