Lifespan of impact-bonded cookware?

If they're not overheated, is there any kind of typical life expectancy of impact-bonded pots and pans? I.e. - cookware with a thermal diffusor plate bonded to the bottom. I have some older Invitations pieces - over 20 years old, on a few the handle is cracking, I could fix them but wonder if I'd be wasting my time on cookware that could be degrading. I just hate to discard something that's otherwise perfectly usable if repairing it would extend its useful lifespan.

Related to this, is there a line of cookware you favor? Any opinions on Breville Thermal Pro cookware which I stumbled across. For the foreseeable future it's going to be used on an electric element range.

I don't know of a life limit. It's pretty much how they are treated. If you are capable and like the cookware I'd repair the handles and keep using them.
