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 dont 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 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 V 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 its 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 didnt 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, Ill 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 glad that I finally decided to invest in stainless steel pans! I have been using non-stick pans but they all eventually start to peel & are unsafe so we end up throwing them away & starting over again. These clean up so easily & I use the "bar keeper's friend" as recommended by the manufacturer to scrub away any unwanted spots or residue.
Although this is a product mfg'd in China, the cost was so much less than All Clad. My children have grown and moved and I wanted to treat myself to a good set. on Mar 27, 2015
I waited with great excitement for this set after doing much research for a multiply set with good pieces. It is a beautiful set to look out. But I am greatly disappointed with their difficult cleanup. I've always had stainless steel which even in cheap set requires very little elbow work or extensive soaking. These require soaking and scrubbing even for mild vegetable cooking that sticks to sides. Unless theres a trick I'm missing in cleaning these smoothly, they are going back unfortunately, love them but unwilling to expend extra effort in scrubbing. Sad.Must question whether really is multi-ply,Going Pots on Feb 25, 2015Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello Going Pots, this is a multi-ply clad.
Please use high heat to cook to avoid food sticking to the pan. Use lemon juice or white vinegar to soak it and clean. For best solution, use barkeeper's friend to clean it.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
