This product is often compared to All-Clad, and the ratings seem to indicate that it's almost as good, and the price is what really makes it great.  I don't know if this is a today-only special or what, but recently, we discussed this exact set here and it was $249.

This is the set with the 10" and 12" saute pans and IMHO is a better set than the one with the 8" and 10" saute pans.  Of course, it depends on the number of people you're cooking for. 

I have this set, and I am quite happy with it.

Stick a good kitchen magnet on the base of the pots and pans for me. Does it stick well?  If they're induction compatible, I'm all over this buy.

I found out the hard way that some Tramontina won't hold a magnet or work on induction even though it claims to do so.  Best to check to be sure.

Which "line"?  I haven't heard that about the tri-clad before, but they make several different lines.

I have/had no idea there were different lines.  I ordered 2 pieces of Tramontina tri-ply clad which was advertised as "induction-compatible" online.  Didn't bother to check with a magnet when I received them, but when I tried to use them, they didn't work and then I checked with a magnet.  Unfortunately, I couldn't return them, so they went to Goodwill.  Lesson learned.

If it was the tri-clad, then it "should have been" induction compatible.  However, obviously not the case for yours.  Not that it matters, but the danged set is now $279... I hate prices that change.
