Tramontina's 10 piece stainless steel cookware is an excellent choice for new pots and pans. I got mine at Wal-Mart, and although I was skeptical at first I found this product to be excellent.
Cooking is made easy with this set. The handles have rubber covers on them to protect your hands, and I have not had any problems with food sticking. The pans distribute heat very well, assuring a well-done excellent meal.
The pots are not very heavy, but this does not affect the quality of the product. Stainless steel is easy to work with, it's dishwasher safe and there are no worries about Teflon being scraped off by accident.
I am very happy with this product, both the quality and the price.
