Why buy tri-ply? Conventional encapsulated base sets only heat up quickly on the bottom of the base. They don't distribute heat to the sides as quickly as tri-ply. This seven-piece stainless steel set features tri-ply technology, which heats up fast and uses less energy, distributing heat evenly to all sides. This heavy-gauge stainless steel set is strong and durable with a mirror polish that provides an attractive display in any kitchen. Its handles and knobs are also stainless steel riveted for secure moving. Pieces are dishwasher safe with smooth surfaces for easy cleaning. This set makes a great gift for yourself or someone else on your list! Set includes: 1.5 quart sauce pan with lid, 2 quart sauce pan with lid, 2.5 quart sauté pan and 6 quart stock pot and lid.
