I've read many of your posts on choosing cookware and I am in the midst of purchasing some myself for my parents.
However, I was wondering what is thought of BergHoff, Cristel, Centurion, Le Cuivre, or any of the Italian brands such as Paderno?
I like what I've read about Tramotina, but am obsessed with thorough research.
Also, what have you heard of the Engele-Reviere brand or I think it is the Baumalau brand??
My plan is to buy maybe one or two good copper pieces and maybe a small set in an all ply brand.
I realize I've probably missed some of these answers, but I only recently caught up with December:)
