Mauviel 9-piece set from Costco

Why_not_meNovember 30, 2012

Costco is selling the Mauviel 9-piece set online (also the 8-piece) for what seems to be a great price.

I didn't know much about Mauviel, so we visited the neighbourhood high-end kitchen toy shop, and played with Mauviel and All-Clad.

The salesman said Mauviel is overpriced on this side of the pond, but is at least as good as All-Clad.

We'll be cooking by gas - Bluestar - and we are competent cooks (burn water when distracted, but can pull off a mean souffl� as required).

The All-Clad looks and feels "nice," but I don't much like the scooped-out handle - doesn't work with my hands, I suspect. We bought the 11" saut� pan, but I'm thinking I'll return it.

So - anyone use Mauviel pots and pans? Like them, or not?

Here is a link that might be useful: Mauviel set at Costco online

At that price, I would not buy a set of anything. You can customize the items that you really need and get all sorts of wonderful things without getting a set.

Check the Cooking Forum, and ask there.

OK, thanks.

But, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't the Cookware Forum for cookware?

I'll try posting on the cooking forum now.

Yes, it's for Cookware, but it's a pretty slow moving forum. The Cooking Forum, OTOH, is active and full of very very good cooks who are generous with their advice.
