A while back I said this set was overpriced (don't recall what it was selling for then) but if it was still $116,
I RETRACT MY STATEMENT!
Not long after, I purchased a smaller 6qt, All-Clad set for $99, but there were several key differences: aside from capacity, the All-Clad set didn't include the Steamer Basket included with this set, but most importantly, the All-Clad set was only single-ply steel. While single-ply is fine for boiling pasta water, it does not provide the performance and versatility of this Viking 3-Ply set. Even All-Clad's 8qt, 4 piece set ($129 Amazon) is still only single-ply construction.
I do own an eight qt Viking stockpot, so I can attest to Vikings' quality--it's good stuff! So, if I had it to do over again, I'd definitely chose this package over the All-Clad set! Here's why: in this bundle you get you get the pasta and steamer basket (meaning this actually qualifies as a "multi-cooker") but because the pot is actually a 3-ply stockpot (vs a single-ply pasta pot) you can use it as you would a Dutch Oven, meaning you can sauté meet and vegetables on the cooktop and then pop the pot in the oven to braise or slow cook, or otherwise finish, in your oven! Don't try that with a pasta pot!
No doubt about it, if I didn't already own a Viking stockpot and my inferior All-Clad pasta set, I'd be all over this drop! Live and learn...
