3 stainless steel sauce pans for $499 is not a deal. At that price it better be at least 3 ply.

Only a deal if I won the 70 mil lotto max jackpot.

It's tri-ply:
Our stainless steel has a full aluminum core bonded between two outer layers of professional-grade stainless steel. The induction-compatible exterior is infused with titanium to prevent scorching and discoloration over time.
Still too expensive when you can get an entire 10 piece 3-ply Cuisinart Set for $165 at Costco: https://www.costco.ca/cuisinart-multicl ... 26364.html

Please don't fall for the Le Creuset prestige/heirloom thing.

My brain read 4.99$ at first. Was a deal. Then it saw 499$. What a scam.
Thanks OP, bought 25!

Weird, they didn't advertise that in the description for the set, but you're right. This is still a rip off.

For what it's worth, they are very pretty, and the rim makes pouring things a breeze. Got one on clearance for cheap, but I would not pay over 100$ a piece.

I got the thing for those few things I don't want to make using a cast iron pan. Don't pay le creuset premium price for stainless. Worth it for the cast iron if you like nice things.

le creuset is known for cast iron, not so much for their stainless steel..

They are good pans. I have the 3.3 L saucier which I use almost every day - it was the one ranked highest by America's Test Kitchen. Cost me $200 for that pan alone (saw it on sale for $149 last summer). If you can afford it and you want to replace cheaper disc bottom pans, this is not a bad deal, especially if you don't have a large household.

$499 is not even a bargain for three of their cast iron pans, let alone stainless steel ones! From someone who has quite a few Le Creuset cast iron pieces, long before it became trendy.

Le Creuset prices have really gone up and they have been expanding their line. I even used to find the cast iron stuff fairly cheap at Winners. All the ceramic stuff is (and was only ever(?)) made in Thailand. Not sure where the S/S stuff come from. Over a decade ago, I went shopping for a crêpe pan in rural France (Soissons or Compiegne). Found it at a quincaillerie the owner of the chambre d'hôte pointed me to, and it was even 30% off, so €21 instead of €30. Must have been NOS (new old stock) as when I was back in France a few years later, the new design was nearly 3x more. It's listed at C$195.

I have multiclad pro (not this set exactly) and highly recommend it as a good price/performance when it comes to stainless steel.

I don't think anyone doubts that they're good pans. They're just not $500 good, or anywhere close to that price range.

The stainless steel pan I have is made in Portugal. Assume the rest of the line is too.

No matter how much money you have this is not a deal.

Interesting. First time I've seen something not All-Clad win something, even though at the end they still had to mention their favorite is some other All-Clad saucier... Sometimes I wonder if All-Clad pays them.
