Here are 4 things that I think will allow you to cook about 90% of everything you see on the internet.

A decent 8" kitchen knife. The Victorinox is a heavy lifter without breaking the bank.

A solid dutch oven. Here I recommend a Lodge, but Le Cruset is fantastic as well. A dutch oven allows you to do tons of one pot meals, braising, frying, soups, sauces, baking bread etc..

A 12" fry pan. This is for proteins, sauteing, all kinds of breakfast applications (eggs, homefries, shakshuka, etc).

A 3 qrt saucier. This one is pretty pricey, but you can get other good, cheaper options if you do a little research. This can double as a pot to boil water, make sauces, curries, and candy. A sauciers smooth sides are much easier to clean and can serve as a good compromise between a saucepan and a saute pan.

I've listed them in order of importance. A knife and a dutch oven can do a ton by themselves. I'd also recommend a pair of kitchen tongs, a handheld fine mesh strainer, and am immersion blender. In fact, I'd try to get those before the fry pan and the saucier, they open a lot of doors for you.

I've been building my collection of All-Clad and Staub, and have the expectation that they will last forever and be handed down to my kids.

In case you're contemplating sets vs open stock, I'd strongly encourage open stock. First, you can often find individual pieces on sale at random intervals, second, you make sure that you only fill your kitchen with the pieces you're really going to use. Basically I make a list of the ones I wanted, and kept an eye on the prices, and bought one a month for a while, depending on what was on sale.

Here's my core collection:

Don't get a set. Get individual pieces you'll reach for daily.

I live all by myself, but I like to make 3 - 4 servings of whatever I'm cooking at once, and then portion it out for the week, so that I don't spend a fortune eating out.
This is my favourite pan. In this one, I make pasta (it holds enough water for 1 lb of pasta), I can make soup, I can make pilaf, I can do stir-fries, I can make crepes and pancakes, and it cheerfully handles it all with no problems. The nonstick is good, although you do need a bit of fat to get things moving. I never run it through the dishwasher. Only hand wash with a soft sponge, and some dawn, and everything is fine. I only use wood or silicon utensils. So far, it's been a year, and it's held up great.
This is a saucier. On the rare off occasion that I want a pot of ramen, or to make a tiny quantity of something, this is perfect. It's also great as a bean pot. When I make a pot of beans, I don't need a giant quantity. I just need enough for me to each lunch a few times. This is just the right size for me.

With those two pots alone, you can cook the vast majority of what you need on a day to day basis. I would suggest getting a rice cooker.
This one is the best one I've used, and I've used a LOT of rice cookers.

If you want a small frying pan for breakfast dishes and the like, this one's good:
Very cheap, lasts long enough, and easy to use.
I have had this knife for 2 years, and it's still going strong. It feels a lot more expensive than it really is. For $15, the thing is super sharp, and does a great job on my chopping needs.

For cutting boards, size matters.
It's solid, it's beautiful to look at, and a pleasure to use.

Honestly you have the 4 pots/pans that I use the most in my kitchen. I’d maybe get this guy to match your 2qt one. It’s always nice having multiple of that style pot/pan hybrid.

I don’t know what the two of you already have but the only things I’d add to this collection, I would not go with All Clad. Non stick skillet, cast iron skillet, and a big Dutch oven. All 3 of those are either not made by all clad or would not be worth the money to spend on them.

Thanks so much for the help. Is this an example of the All Clad to avoid?

Basically I should get Mauviel copper with tin lining or if not then All Clad with copper and stainless lining?

I wouldn't mind getting a few pieces a year until I have a complete set. I just am at the point where I can afford it but not to just drop $2K on a complete set at once. I want to get the heirloom pieces and don't mind saving for a piece at a time. I have decent hard anodized Calphalon stuff now.

allclad pieces, whatever you need, not non stick. And not stock pots, not worth it, just buy cheap ones for that. Start with 2 or 3 quart Saucier (round bottom) , and 3 quart Sautee pan,
Non stick pieces should be cheaper and not BIFL.
Good Knives, for budget conscious I recommend Mundial start with 8" Chef's, 8" carving and a pairing knife. Pick your color/handle style.
Cast Iron pan and/or dutch oven.
Some will disagree (about using electric sharpeners), but I'm very fond of my Chef's Choice 120 sharpener.
Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Make sure to get one with metal gears.
Cordless Drill not really buy it for life, but a good one will last a good long time, and really useful for your home. Bosch, Hitachi or Ridgid are usually the recommended brands.

Instead of a random saucepan, ensure you pick a saucier.
