From what I read when I was registering, there is no difference between the composition of the tri ply and the Contemporary.  The only difference is Contemporary is newer, has a different design, and the pieces in the set are a little different.  The difference between the 8 and 13 piece set was only $100 right? Based on the price of those individual pieces, I’d just go for the 13 piece set and have everything you might need.   I got the 13 piece tri ply, and the pieces in that set that didnt come with the 8 piece actually turned out to be the ones I use the most.  (I’m not a big cook either).

I don’t know as far as differences go but I am registering for seperate cookware no the sets.  I don’t thikn any of my guests will purchase such an expensive gift if i register for the set.  It may be a better deal but only if someone can afford to buy it for you.

i bought all my pieces separately because the sizes in the sets were usually the smaller versions that i would infrequently use. i don ‘t know much about calphalon.  i think i have one unison slide pan for eggs.  everything else is all-clad stainless steel, le creuset (i have four french ovens), and plain cast iron.  if you don’t cook much, then stainless will be a pain.  i like big pans so i love my 12″ all-clad stainless.  i can cook up a ton of latkes in them.  i rarely use my 10″ and the only 8″ i have is nonstick so that the bf can cook up a few eggs.

if you don’t cook much, i say do not register for the set because it’s more expensive.  pick other big ticket items that you really want so that if someone decides to buy you something $400, it’s something you really want or need (kitchenaid mixer, dyson vacuum, or something else.).
