Invest in High Quality Cookware for Less


Martha started the practice, followed by Emeril, Rachel, Wolfgang and now Paula: designer cookware. Before these guys, All-Clad cookware was the cook’s ultimate choice, but then the celebrity chefs decided they could have their own name stamped on the bottom of the pans they flashed on screen.

If you’re less interested in the name than you are the attributes of the product itself, take a look at this surprisingly high-quality cookware sold at WalMart.

This cookware has the same features as brands that cost two times the price:

  • 18/10 Stainless Steel
  • Tri-ply with aluminum core on all sides (not just the bottom), a feature of the most expensive brands – this distributes heat throughout the pan
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • NSF Certified
  • Riveted handles designed to stay cool
  • Dishwasher Safe

The stainless steel set manufactured by Tramontina is $144.97 for 8 pieces at WalMart, but some pieces, like the deep pasta pot shown above, are sold individually.  Although there are other cookware sets by Tramontina, the stainless steel set is the finest.

If you are trying to cook at home more often to save money or just to have more family time around your table, this cookware is a great investment.  It will last for years and probably doesn’t cost much more than your weekly grocery bill.  Find this set at WalMart Supercenters on John Hawkins Parkway (Hoover) or off Montevallo Road (Irondale).  The set is also available online with the option to ship to a store.
