These are very cheap and not a good choice for a kitchen that does any sort of actual cooking. They heat very unevenly, handles are very flimbsy...I mean yeah, you get what you pay for, but for the amount of cooking I do, these just do not stand a chance. Might be a good product for a kid going to college or something of that sort, but not for a household with kids or one that cooks a lot.
I bought these for the my first set of pots. They serve the purpose, I would've liked the handles to be a little more sturdy but its not bad. They take well to high heat, cooks the food evenly. Shipping was wonderful, they were all secure in bubble wrap, it was delivered within the estimated time it was given. I would recommend these pots as a first set of pots or as an additional set. Great product for the price :)
I love this set of cookware! They heat evenly, are easy to clean, and still look great after many uses! Also, many people complained about food sticking burning. I haven't had this problem yet, even when I made some homemade alfredo sauce on low heat. I definitely recommend this set, especially if you are looking for good cookware at a great price.
Good value for the money but not made sturdy, If I had to do over again I would purchase a better constructed Pot & Pan set, The lid center section gets water in side and you have to take apart to clean it. All the pieces arrived in good shape from Overstock nothing bent or broken. I have not cooked with this set yet so I can not comment on that feature. Again I am not expecting much from these Pots and Pans but I may be surprised .
this set is actually better than i thought it would be, when i purchased it i thought to myself that i would have to replace it after a few months because of the price. I mean you cant get anything of quality these days without paying over 100 ...but boy was i wrong. I love the set, i don't cook very ofter but the few times that i've used it, i can say that i'm pleased.
I used my Blackstar stainless steel cookware set on the first day of its arrival. Doesn't require high heat to cook foods...Actually, I use low heat, and the foods don't have to cook longer than usual. Cookware is easy to clean. For the cost, this cookware is very good quality.
My brother says the pans are nice; I haven't seen them. I ordered them for him on Dec. 16, 2009 as a Christmas gift, and Overstock guaranteed Christmas delivery, so imagine my chagrin when the pans were actually delivered Dec. 29. Overstock did refund 20% of my purchase price, but if I had to choose between ten bucks and my brother's gift arriving on time, I would choose timely arrival. VERY annoying, and I probably won't order from Overstock again because of it.
The pots were just what I thought I wanted, as far as looks and size were concern, but once you use it, it left a smell from the pots that's not cool. I thought it was because the pots were new, but it's rentless. I'm afraid to use them again. Buy at your own risk, maybe I got a bad box!
