Is this drop a little more (~$130) than it was last time? I'm not sure I recall correctly.

Great pans, great brand - Love my Copper Cores, but you can pretty easily beat this price. I have this set bought 1 piece at a time on sales and with coupons and paid less in total

And you really want at least tri clad! Thanks for all the comments, I always wondered is there was any advantage to the 5 layer stuff over the 3, I guess so. But at least get the 3, even if mismatched brands from discount stores (hello Tuesday Morning!).

I own a copper core set, some tramontina and a cast iron. Got used with the weight, but cleaning is a b***. Can you get 90% of this pan for 30% of the price? Yes, you can! If you don't mind spending a few hundred to own the top notch who lasts forever, go for it, otherwise settle for a mid range set.

I use AC exclusively. It is wonderful to cook with, but i find that the clean up is extraordinary and it doesn't scratch like any ceramic or teflon coating. The handles are solid, no issues with rivets loosening like other brands and no pitting in the stainless steel, which plagues less expensive competitors. In this case, you DO get what you pay for.

For anybody considering this, I have the 14 piece set of AC Copper Core which I got for only slightly less than the price on MD (which was stacking multiple coupons, discounts, etc.), so this is a really solid price if you're looking to completely overhaul your cookware. I have cooked on a number of different AC models including D5, the classic tri-ply, their non-stick and this. I find the performance of this to be enough of an improvement over AC products to be worth the cost (and not a fan of D5 at all), but if you're not used to cooking on stainless, there's definitely a learning curve. If you're comfortable on stainless and do more advanced cooking (particularly french), this stuff is top notch and is about as non-stick as anything teflon or ceramic I've ever cooked on (seriously). My only real complaint with it is that the polished outsides don't stay polished for long, but I bought mine to use, not to look at, so I'm ok with that. IT's also quite a bit heavier than the 3-ply AC (which is still a lot heavier than anodized aluminum or anything else if you're not used to it). IF anyone is considering any of the Copper Core sets here, I'm happy to answer any questions to the best of my ability... One note I will make is that the benefits of the copper core (mainly additional heat control) are somewhat negated if you're not cooking on induction or gas, so if you're using an electric range you may as well save your money because the added heat properties of the copper layer won't make any difference for you. Plus th One last note, when I bought the 14 piece set, there were a couple pieces I didn't care about (it was still more economical to buy the 14 piece set than to buy Copper Core pieces a-la carte), but everything was separately packaged in its own retail-ish packaging, so I gave a couple pieces away as really nice gifts. Not sure how it will be packaged here, but that turned out to be a pretty nice situation because I could give things away without it looking like I was just giving them a random pan...

I felt (and some reviews i've read) have agreed, that the performance variation from 2 extra metal layers does not justify the price or added weight. I think there's plenty in the camp that would say the same thing about copper core (marginal added benefit of a copper layer and all the extra weight of 2 additional layers beyond the basic tri-ply), but i felt like the copper did actually make a difference on heating and cooling. That said, "not a fan of D5 at all" should be taken with a grain of salt. I'd take AC D5 over practically any competitor - I've used a lot of alternatives and believe AC's quality is superior to the competition - my comment was more, "in the context of all of All Clad's collection, D5 is not my preference." As with all cookware, YMMV, and if you're happy with it, that's all that matters. For me, the added cost of copper core was worthwhile, but the added cost of D5 over the classic tri-ply wasn't. I actually like the way the D5 looks a lot though! I like the copper detailing on copper core, but it's a PITA to keep clean/polished, and i would much prefer the brushed exterior ooption of D5 to copper core's polished outside. FWIW, I have plenty of other things in my kitchen beyond the AC, because although it's the cornerstone cookware, it's not perfect for everything, and I have a lot of enameled cast iron and some ceramic nonsticks for other things too.

Thanks for the through reply, it's appreciated. yeah, the brushed surface was one of the selling points for me as aI figured that polished is just a lot of work to keep up.

the sizes of the other pans are much larger, thus the price increase.

For 98% of the quality and functionality check out the tri-ply Tramontina cookware. I am not sure if they do a copper core though. I have all of their aluminum tri-ply and it is great.

Nice stuff, but not that nice. I can assure you--the difference between this and the standard tri-ply won't show up in your cooking--only your wallet.

AC is the gold standard of stainless cookware, and it carries a hefty premium. However, you can get tri ply stainless sets that provide 95-99% of the benefits for a more wallet-friendly cost. I recommend honing your technique on cheaper alternatives like Tramontina, Cook’s Standard, or Calphalon tri ply. I own Calphalon, and I picked up all my pieces at overstock stores like TJ Maxx and Ross for pennies on the dollar.
