All-clad would be my dream set. I'll probably buy some piece at a time, but I've been looking for stuff I can buy a few at once that will instantly replace my current cheapo set. I did get a set off an overstock sales site and they are alright, but won't last long. I went with a ceramic coated SS. The pans are light and the ceramic coat isn't great, but they'll work to replace a couple of the teflon pieces.
I bought a Tramontina SS set because it had been touted many times as the cheap alternative to all-clad, and apparently it is almost as good at half the price. Check this review out comparing them: http://www.seriouseats.com/2010/08/e...a-skillet.html
