Although I've not used the pans, I've done some limited research into their construction and have examined a couple of items. Plus, I know a couple of cooks who have used one or two pans. They seem to be a good, solid product, and one that I'd consider. Sorry I can't be of any more help.
Great to know that! If I didn't already have a 3qt sauté, the Viking would get very serious consideration. What has surprised me is that there are so few reviews and comments on these pans, although all that I came across were very favorable. I'd love to see it go head-to-head with a comparable All-Clad. Something tells me the Viking may be a better pan in some regards.
I have the 9.5" fry pan as well as the 2qt. reduction sauce pan and I honestly love them and have informed my wife that no how many times she threatens me with bodily harm I WILL be adding to my collection .... which will include a couple of non-stick pans as well.
The major pain about all of it though is the nearest vicking outlet is about 2.5 - 3.0 hours away .... not to mention the price.
The reason I went with Viking instead of AllClad is the fact that Viking has more layers and it's one seriously stout piece of equipment.
