I have a few comments and suggestions for Sur La Table and Mauviel to improve the product. This comes from my observations over the past 5 months of heavy usage.
1) They seem to scratch on the bottom very easily. I have a stove with cast iron grates, they're doing a good job scratching up the bottoms. I would have wanted the bottoms to be a bit more hardy given the price.
2) They are lighter, the overall mass is less than All Clad. Heft means great cooking, heat retention, less sticking. Heft also feels like better quality.
3) The handles curve upwards, love the feel and working with them but if you put them in the oven, you need to really move or remove one of the racks to make it work.
4) The stainless steel discolors on the bottom from the gas heat. Related to #1 above, the bottom could be thicker and tougher to avoid the scratches and discoloration. If you examine All Clad, the bottom is hardier.
5) The stainless steel on the inside of the pots and pans seems like it could be thicker and smoother. To get it looking new after using and drying, I wipe them with a bit of oil to bring the luster to what it was when new.
Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. I added a few matching pieces and my overall spend into this new set is around $1200. I have had second thoughts, should have went with All Clad brushed, and am working through reconciling that in my mind. I will stick with these for now and when our daughter graduates college, I might give these to her and purchase a new set to move into the next 20 years of cooking.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my experience with these.
Questions & Answers
"There are several suppliers, and the factory buys the raw material from a supplier that meets the material requirements and that offers the best prices.
As there are different shapes at different times in production, and as there are items in inventory in France, the USA and at SLT, the origin of the material in any given product at any one time could differ from an item that is next to it on a shelf or in the warehouse."
M'collection de cuisine, by description and per photos, seems very similar to the M'cook line and an excellent value. Aside from appearance (I actually like the brushed exterior of the M'collection better) are there any differences, e.g. weight or composition
