Has anyone heard of this brand? I recently got a Crate and Barrel catalog and they had a gorgeous set of 3 ply copper, aluminum, and stainless pots that I am lusting after. Even knowing that they are $1,000 cheaper than the All-Clad set I was planning for, and probably y terrible quality, I can't stop thinking about how pretty they are.

Someone talk some sense into me, please.

Lisa,

Do you want to spend the rest of your life polishing them?

Also, at that price, I doubt there's more than 1mm of copper.

They are pretty, but I'd be concerned also about the quality and durability.
I see a big dent in the future.

I know you are right on both counts. <sigh>

From their web site, https://www.fleischerandwolf.com/returns-policy/

This is a pretty lousy return policy, I'd stay away.

If you really want a laugh, read the "About" page.

It's like someone wrote a program to auto-generate hipster brand marketing. It's also patently clear that neither "Fleischer" nor "Wolf" actually exist as people.

They won't stay pretty.

They won't work well.
