Great Cookware Set
Finamoon from Rainier, OR – Verified Buyer
I was looking for a stainless steel set because I like stainless steel so much better than just aluminum ones. I love that they are made of heavy 18/10 polished stainless steel because they are beautiful in my kitchen and seem very durable. I don't, however; know how long the polished look of the stainless is going to last. These pots and skillets have a thick aluminum disk base that is great for quick, even heat distribution. This thick aluminum disk base is completely encapsulated by stainless steel which helps them resist corrosion and discoloring making clean up easier. The pans' rims are rolled for strength and make it possible to pour without dripping.I have to confess though that I love my cast iron skillets better than these nonstick skillets. I don't like nonstick coatings because they usually end up scratching easily (unless used with proper utensils) and sometimes flake off into the food I cook. I love cast iron and if seasoned properly it is very easy to clean. Also, I am sometimes anemic (have low iron) especially while pregnant and cooking with cast iron helps my anemia. My mother, however; is post menopausal and too much iron could cause her problems she doesn't need or want so I like having a few nonstick pieces of cookware around for when she visits.This set has 4 pots that all have glass lids. These lids fit tightly and help keep moisture and nutrients inside. I can also see into the pot at everything cooking inside it which makes it easier to know when the contents start boiling or simmering without lifting the lid and letting the nutrients and moisture escape. The handles have a retro look to them because they are made of phenolic (Bakelite) and are oven-safe up to 350 degrees F.

I purchased this set as a Christmas gift for my parents. It was used excitedly to prepare our family's Christmas dinner. The finish is nice, and the stainless steel works well in any kitchen. The set also allows for a wide range of foods to be prepared at once, which is convenient when making large meals.

I purchased these for my daughter for Christmas. She absolutely loves them and they are great for someone just learning to cook.
Beware induction cooks!
Jill from Christiansburg, VA – Verified Buyer
After discovering that my current cookware wasn't magnetic and, therefore, didn't work on my new induction cooktop, I scoured the internet to find cookware that would work. The description on this set read, "This cookware set is suitable for induction stovetops." Turns out this is only half true! The pots are magnetic but not the pans! THE PANS DO NOT WORK ON INDUCTION COOKTOPS! Also, it is really hard to clean off any burned food on the bottom of the pots! So last night was a real learning curve! I learned induction cooktops cook quickly, making food burn easily, and trying to cook stir fry in a pot isn't such a good idea!
Good 5-10 year set
Kate's sister from North Central Kansas – Verified Buyer
I got this set as a present for my sister who only has "odds and ends" pots and pans. I inspected the set when it arrived, and the non-stick skillets look like they would probably last about 5 years with heavy use; longer if treated gently with only silicone or bamboo utensils. The extra aluminum on the bottom of the pots is great for even cooking, but I have some myself, and they don't do well with repeated cycles through the dishwasher. Since they're NOT non-stick, they'd probably have to be soaked and wiped out by hand anyway. The handles on the pots, pans, and lids looked like it might crack if dropped on a hard surface, but felt good in the hand and looked thick enough to maybe get hot over a long period of time, but they would prevent burns. The lids were glass, but that doesn't bother me. Overall, the set would probably last 5 years with rough use and longer if a small amount of care was used. The price was GREAT for this set, and I'd buy it again.
good quality product
Laurie from Brooklyn, NY – Verified Buyer
Good quality pots. The two best features are the see-through lids and the sturdy handles that don't get hot to the touch. Owned a set of Farberware pots for 40 years and had a good experience with them during that time and hope these will also be good.
Jessica from glen allen, VA
Haven't used them yet but looking forward to using. packaged well and quality is nice.
