Paderno is a Canadian brand that is actually manufactured in Prince Edward Island.
I think like any other brand they have their low level stuff, their mid level stuff, and their high level stuff. I have never used Paderno pots so I cannot comment on them but I do not believe they are manufactured for professional use. Might be fine for a home kitchen though.
I have used many Paderno kitchen utensils including steak knives and to be honest I thought they sucked. I wouldn't waste my money on them again. But I can't speak to the pots--they might be fine.
Our local restaurant supplier is having a Paderno factory outlet sale. I have to go and pick up some pastry items I ordered so I'll take a look at the pots for you while I am there. I can tell you this--their stuff is REALLY expensive so if you found one going for a good price on ebay it might be a good idea to snap it up just to give it a try.
