Help me pick a cookware set

My wife wants new pots. We currently have a set of the rock pots that are still decent and are not peeling or anything but she wants a stainless set and we will keep a few smaller non-stick frying pans for eggs ect. i want to buy at costco as I have some gift cards and because of their return policy. Can anyone suggest the best choice from the ones below?

I actually just saw the Lagostina one was on sale last week :( I called the stores and it is backordered and $189.99 now.

You can't go wrong with the Lagostina. We have the 5ply set for well over 25 years now. Still going strong.

WRT to the Kirkland ones, I would take a lot of those reviews with more skepticism. You can see and feel the set in the warehouse, it's solid construction, and 5 ply, means it's going to be heavier. In addition to the copper ply in the middle, there is another 2 ply in the bottom plate that the 3 ply's don't have. Warping is a matter of heat/cold cycling, anyone that put a hot pan in a sink of cold water or through a cold water tap will experience warping. However, you won't go wrong with the Lagostina.
