For carbon steel pans I would go for vollrath. It is around $26 for a 11" French fry pan.
Carbon is, like cast iron, reactive and must be seasoned to prevent reactivity and rust. But also conducts heat well like CI while saving a few lbs.
Paderno and town home have cheaper carbon cookware but vollrath is the industry standard.
Stain and de buyer are of great quality. But grossly overpriced

i prefer staubs also over le creuset.
anything "clad" is pretty good in my book.
and i do like tramontina for their bang for the buck prices.

Hmm, I just checked out these Staubs. They seem decent. I never have been in the market for new quality cookware, so I wasn't even aware of this brand. I didn't do a price comparison, and I don't like the appearance as much as the Le Creuset, but I'm sure they are awesome regardless. Honestly I do 95 percent of my cooking in whatever our restaurant gets its hand on, and believe that technique is what is most important. I have also been using cast iron more and more, which is what you are getting away from. As long as it is quality, and lasts, you will end up happy I'm sure.
