The set has: 10 pieces a 8 inch sauté pan, 10 inch sauté pan, 2-qt covered sauce pan, 3-qt covered sauce pan and a 5-qt covered Dutch oven. These utensils are compact in size and are very easy to handle and use.
The stainless steel pots and lids make it very efficient and durable.

For the convenience of users the handles of the pots and pans in this line are riveted, allowing easy handling. However, the handles of Tramontina Gourmet 8-Piece 18/10 Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Clad Cookware and Tableware Set are made of steel so they tend to heat up. I recommend to always use a mitten for your safety. This can be seriously dangerous and unconsciously you can grip the handle and get severe burns. The set is not non-stick so it tough to cook eggs as they always stick to the bottom. In case food sticks to the bottom of the pan cleaning it can be a big hassle. The sizes of pot are an issue if you have a big family. The size of the pots is limited for a small family only. If you have more than a few members in your house, this cookware and tableware set is not the answer and I would suggest you look for one that caters to a large number of people.
All and all, despite its shortcomings, Tramontina Gourmet 8-Piece 18/10 Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Clad Cookware and Tableware Set is a good buy. It is free of the chemicals that nonstick pans and pots have and is hence healthy as a choice. The stainless steel make of the Gourmet Set makes it very durable and ensures the buyer that it will last much longer than just a couple of years. It has a modest price tag and gives worth in return for your money. I would definitely recommend it as it is a cookware and tableware set with class, elegance, and functionality.
