I stopped by Aldi's to do some grocery shopping today and ended up picking up one of the Crofton 10-piece cookware sets. I just compensated by planning meals made with beans, rice, and ground turkey!

The set seems to be a bargain for $59. They're made in China and distributed by Kirby & Allen. I know they're not top-of-the line or anything, but they are nice and heavy 18/10 stainless steel with copper bottoms and sleek, solid handles riveted onto the pans. I like how the handles all have holes for hooks - eventually, I want to store our cookware and lids on a hanging rack.

The lids are clear tempered glass, each with a little vent hole. They're non-stick with Quantum2 lining (supposed to even allow for metal utensils, but we're not going to chance that). It included all this:

(1) 8" saute pan
(1) 9.5" saute pan
(1) 1-Qt covered saucepan
(1) 2-Qt covered saucepan
(1) 3-Qt covered saucepan
(1) 5-Qt covered dutch oven

Here's a picture (excuse the icky kitchen -- don't know WHOSE that could be).
