I purchased this set in the summer of '09 - absolutely love it & the free gifts are just perfect. MetroKitchen is the BEST website to work with. If you call you actually get a person to speak with. Fast delivery. If I need more All-Clad this is where I'll buy it!
Staining not a problem!

I have had these pots and pans going on 8 years now and I absolutly LOVE them. Initially I too didn't like the staining/ discoloration so I went in search of a solution... BARKEEPERS FRIEND works like a champ! My pots look as good as the day I bought them! Also, once cleaned properly food does not stick!

It was time!

I've had an All-Clad "everything" pan (I don't remember their name for it) for over a year now and have loved its even heating, perfect size, and ease of handling. After using that pan just a few times, I knew I would be getting a set someday. Finally ordered this nine-piece set a few weeks ago and am so happy. I like this set because it has just enough pieces. I didn't want two fry pans, and I like the casserole pan for its double handles. When it's full of boiling water, I feel safer being able to lift it with both hands. The flip side of that is, unlike the long handles on the other pans, the short ones on the casserole pan get hot. Personally, I'd rather yelp "ouch!" for a second and grab a potholder than spill boiling water all over me. I may get the 3 qt saucepan eventually, but for now I have exactly what I want. These pans do discolor a bit, as others have noted, but that's easily resolved with Barkeepers Friend if it bothers you. If you can spend the money for these pans, they're a superb choice.
All Clad Stainless Set .... awesome!

I started with just the 8" fryer just to see how I would like this cookware. Other than staining and discoloration (as noted by the prevoius reviewer), I loved the pan! Fast and even cooking! Food tastes better! You must not overheat the pan .... I usually let the pan heat up at med (or just a little over medium) heat, for about 2 minutes. Then, add cooking spray or oil, and let that sit for about another 30 seconds. Then, add food. Wash pans right after cooking, in hot water only. I would not suggest any type of normal dishwashing soap. I finally ordered the 9 piece set about a month ago, and I am NOT dissapointed. It's a beautiful set that works perfectly ever time. And the best part .... I read that I should polish with Barkeeper's Friend. I purchased the one for stainless cookware. It does a superb job! Even my original 8" fryer, that I have had for a year polished up just as good as new!! Now, there is nothing that I don't like about this All Clad Stainless set!
Great Cooking Set

The only negative I've found on the stainless set is the inside of the pots/pans are prone to stains and discoloration. Doesn't effect functionality. Purchased about a year ago. Would do same thing again.
