"2.3 mm 3 ply body consisting of 304 S/S, aluminum and 430 S/S"

304 is generally more expensive than 430 because of the chemical composition. Notably, 304 contains between 8 – 10.5% nickel whereas 430 contains 0%. The inclusion of nickel in 304 makes the metal more corrosion resistant than 430 however it is an expensive element which is one of the main reasons for the difference in cost between the 2.

looks like you have to get lucky and have it be at your local store.

KURAIDORI is quite possibly the worst homesware brand I've ever had the displeasure of buying. Purchased a garlic press where two of the blades shot out and cut open my thumb; and a salad spinner that got rusty as hell within two uses.
All of their crap is totally worthless junk with a quick pipeline to the dump.

Nickel has some biocompatibility issues. Lots of people have nickel allergies (around 10% of women are allergic to nickel). It is also a carcinogen. I don't know the risks of cooking with nickel, but I know there are risks with medical implants.

The 430 SS ply is likely added so it can be used with induction stovetops.

But the 2.3mm overall thickness is pretty darn thin...not sure I'd consider this a quality set.

That's only for leachable nickel. If they don't leach, it is fine.

Anything acidic or salty will leach ions from from substrate. It's low risk, but for people with known nickel allergies, I would avoid cheap cookware and sick with enamel coated cast iron.

There are consumer product testing just for that iirc (cookware for leachable metal, jewelry and watch for leachable lead, different test method). But certainly whether they actually test it or not and if the custom check it or not, that's another issue. I remember that in cbc marketplace, some jewelry for kids have some problem I can't remember. So...there is a law...

My KitchenAid Tri-Ply Copper is 2.5 and All-Clad is 2.6, so 2.3mm honestly doesn't sound too bad, especially since just a frying pan for either of those sets costs more than this entire kit.

Are these ones made in Canada? I have a small kuraidori sauce pan which is pretty nice. It's not triple ply at this price but is decently thick.

One of the reviewers mentioned being surprised that they weren't made in Canada, so I'm guessing China.

My KitchenAid copper set is made in China, and it's spectacular, so I wouldn't be too quick to say pots are crap based on that alone.
