1. I usually go for the best hardware (within limits..), and I understand that Paderno Grand Gourmet cookware is very good, and that the Italian made are better than the Paderno made elsewhere is not equally good..? 2. According to http://paderno.it/cookware.html there are no such thing as a "1200-series so I wonder if this guy "Italiano" are selling "the real deal"..? It looks very similar to the 1100-series, but the handles are different. I am looking for a 36 cm/36 liter (ca 14"/37 qts). His price for this is NOK 1712,- inkl. 25%VAT (ca 260 USD) I'm going to cook ca 60 kg bacalao, using the burner for my crab coocker (max 15 kW).
