[Home Outfitters] Lagostina Hotel-Clad 12pc 5 ply stainless steel cookware set - $199

Anyone looking for a decent stainless steel set should look at this lagostina set. down from $1099 to $199. I checked it out in person and it is quite hefty, but other wise good quality and probably has fast even heating.

it consist of 5 layers of metal (same combination as zwilling sensation/Demeyere):

the middle layer is an aluminum alloy, more rigid than pure aluminum but slower heat transfer. you could think of it as a tri-ply but with a really thick aluminum sandwich. I compared it to the zwilling Sol II sigma ply next to it and it is definitely thicker/heavier.
the only thing missing from it is flared lips and etched measurements inside the vessels. none the less, it still seems like a great cookware deal this boxing day.

How do these compare to the Henckels Passion set on sale at the bay for $300 on boxing day?

The zwilling henckels are encapsulated base construction. Will not have as much even heat distribution on the side walls. Go pick up the passion set and you will notice it's lighter than the zwilling ply sets and the walls are much thinner

Not bad but I would really recommend getting pans with rounded edges. totally worth it. Every year you can find a tryply set for 200$

Bianco will have the ceramic coating fall off pretty darn fast. If you do lagostina, dont do ceramic.

I have had these for 5 years now and love them. Very little sticks to the pots. I tend not to use the frypan though because i have a cast iron one. They have held up very nicely and I have used them daily. I even throw them in the dishwasher from time to time. I had cheaper lagostina previously which were thin and cheap - these are far better and I would highly recommend.

I don't believe the best buy set comes with the 2 open skillets?
Yeah this on my list till I saw the description. May go with the Tramotina set on Walmart (US) and go cross border to pick it up. Looking for a nice tri-ply all clad set without All-Clad prices lol

I'm long overdue to replace my cookware set (and under-researched) and am trying to decided if I should jump on this.

Would you mind helping catch me up a bit on the advantage rounded edges, advantage of tryply and any examples of what kind of $200 that we've seen in the past I should keep an eye out for?

rounded edges help to pour without spilling down the sides. tri-ply helps with fast and even heating even up to the side walls (important for making sauces, gravy, rice, not so much for boiling pasta). right now the zwilling sol II is onsale at best buy for $270 (was 250 yesterday), tri ply, rounded edges, and etched measurements inside. lowest I have ever seen for that one

I have Cuisinart set, although not this one - a more basic one. It is great and going strong for almost 10 years now. No skillet in the above set and kind of useless 1L pot, but good price overall.
