I've owned these about 6 months now. Quality is phenominal. I've sauted in them, boiled them dry, ran them through the dishwasher, used metal utensils, you name it. No scratches, warping, discoloration, nada. I scrub them down every so often with Bar Keepers Friend to keep them spotless. Other than that, they just go through the dishwasher. These are heavy sturdy pans with quality equal to pans the times the price. The cook even and look great. I've had no problem with sticking as long as I preheat, which is the case with any nonstick pans. My only complaint is the company doesn't make a lid to fit the 10" skillet. What a disappointment! I survive though. I would still completely recommend them to anyone who cooks regularly and wants a quality product!

I'm buying my first house, and I wanted a real, adult set of cookware that will last more than few years. Obliviously, I donít have a lot of money left to spend on a $700 set. After researching hard anodized aluminum, non-stick and stainless steel, I settled on stainless because of high satisfaction with most SS sets (website reviews), they are dishwasher safe (a big thing for me) and can go from stovetop to oven with no ill effects.
The Cooks Standard is one of the few stainless steel sets where the alloy aluminum is encapsulated on the bottom and goes all the way up the sides. It is very rare to find a set that has that feature at this price. All websites that carry this set have very good reviews on it.
Everything fits correctly. The steel is polished and smooth on the outside and brushed on the inside. The pieces are nice and heavy, and the walls are thick. I had to do my own tests to ensure that it was a good deal. The first test I did was to boil water in the 1.5 quart pot. I was worried about how hot the handles would get Ė a common complaint of Stainless Steel cookware. Much to my surprise, the lid and pot handle were cool enough to hold bare-handed. It gets too hot just about a half inch from the bottom of the ĎVí in the handle. The bulk of the handle is cool and comfortable to hold. The pot retains heat very well too. On my other test, I cooked pancakes in the smaller pan. I read itís what Consumer Reports does to test cooking evenness. I greased the pan with butter and let it preheat for a minute. It gets hot really fast. Another common complain of SS, is that food tends to stick, and these pancakes didnít stick at all! The pancakes cooked quickly and evenly - no hot spots. Only time will tell how well this set will hold up to daily abuse, but it is off to a great start. If I can, Iíll try and give an update review in a year.

I bought this for my daughter & it's BEAUTIFUL. It's heavy & shiny, just appeared to be really nice. My daughter absolutely LOVES it. She said it heats evenly, washes up really nice, just a great set. I'm watching for the next few months & if it remains the same, I will be getting another set...for me! I was really impressed with it though so far.

I am so grateful to have been able to afford a set of pots and pans that are not lined or made with poisonous material. I've had no trouble adjusting to cooking with these, just respect the lower temp and no rapid temp changes and should be no problems. Soak for a little time after cooled off then wash; I've been using the same thing I use to clean my stainless sink, vinegar, water, and baking soda, if you are anal about scratches test on something else first, I am about function then aesthetics.
I love this set. I love the idea that I can shove them in the oven. Not that I'm complaining, but I couldn't make the skillet non-stick at all. I think I read where there is a technique that made food not stick. I haven't been able to make eggs NOT stick. Maybe it's me. It is true, however, that they don't need high heat. I put them on the lowest setting on my stove, and the food still enjoyed a rolling boil. I love also that they are so sturdy. I was worried they would be flimsy, but these guys are heavy duty. If you're looking for a good set, go for it.
We are not gourmet chefs so this review may not apply to serious cooks; however we were very pleased with the quality of the product. We noticed a significant difference in how well and evenly it cooked food. It cleans easily, no problems in dishwasher. Extremely pleased with product and the price. It's a shame we can't make this in the US.
All I can say is WOW!! I just received my 10-piece set and it is everything I'd hoped for and more. I did a lot of research before deciding on which set to buy....and after looking in stores....and going on-line....this set just seemed right. I read all the reviews on this set(all positive!)....so I figured....for the price....why not. This is an amazingly well-made set of pots and pans. I was just in ****** a few days ago and I was looking at a set of All Clad that was about 4 times the price of this set....and I actually like these better!! You simply can't get a quality set of tri-ply 18-10 stainless steel cookware at this price and quality....anywhere. I'm absolutely stunned! And even more to my surprise....a few of the reviewers said that there is no lid that fits one of the fry pans. Well....in this set....the stock pot lid fits the large skillet and the steamer lid fits the smaller skillet. Just perfect. I couldn't be happier with this purchase and I would definitely recommend this line of stainless steel cookware to anyone who is looking for super high quality at an amazing price. Unbelievably good!!....:~)
These pans were over and beyond my expectations. Very nice weight, and easy cleanup after researching that coconut oil makes the virtually non-stick! I love these are 18/10 and knowing they are much healthier way to cook. All the lids are interchangeable between the pots and skillets. They are beautifully made, I have not seen any hot spots either. Using Bar Keepers Helper to keep they shiny and new is an easy cleanup. I was so impressed with this set I bought one for my mom for Mother's Day. She loves them too! For the price I couldn't have made a better decision!
Don't know. It is just branded "Cooks." It is a great product!wandaaile on Jul 5, 2014
