We did a lot of research before deciding to purchase this set of cookware. I will say that the other reviewers are right - you have to learn to cook with these. Once you do, they are wonderful!!! The key is to heat the pan first, then add your appropriate oil and then TRUST the pan. This was the hardest part for us but when you do, the results are fantastic.
I've read other review of people who had issues with thus set so I wanted to use it a little before I commented. so far I'm very happy. They are pretty, have a lively weight and heat evenly and consistently so fat. ?i haven't used every piece but all I've used have performed and cleaned up well.
