Mauviel pots and pans: likes and dislikes?
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 (happily burn water when distracted, but can pull off a mean soufflÃ¯Â¿Â½ as required).
The All-Clad looks and feels like it's good quality (I think that's a given, right!), but I don't much like the scooped-out handle - doesn't work with my hands, I suspect. We bought the 11" sautÃ¯Â¿Â½ pan, but I'm thinking I'll return it.
So - anyone use Mauviel pots and pans? Like them, or not?
