Nice and thick stainless steel walls. Great bottom plate for even cooking. lid has a vent hole to stop that annoying steam lid splatting (my old set does this). Looks nice, will look great hanging from my Baker's Rack. I noticed the price went up since I bought them, I guess there are certain times they reduce the price. Even with the high price, I promise you its the best bang for your buck. Considering I'm this impressed with the current set, I kind of wish I would have just spent the extra $$ for the upgraded version of this with the 3 ply system (would just make these awesome pots perfect). The only con I can think of is that made in China stamp on the bottom (like the other review said). I guess that's why they are so cheap for the quality.
This is the worst set of cookware I have ever owned.The first time I used them and every time after they have ruined what I was trying to fix.I opened the box read the directions , washed them as directed and tried to fry an egg.I had oil so there was no reason for to stick but it did horribly. I thought well maybe it's just not good for eggs so I rewashed it and tried to fix pancakes, the same thing they tore all to pieces. So I thought well I'll try to fry meat.So I rewashed again and made sure there was no residue just in case I had missed something the first time.I used oil and proceeded to fry the meat and the stupid pan ruined the meat too.I am a very good cook so it's not my cooking skills that are to bkame.The cheap pans at Walmart worked better than these do.I have tried several times to use these but no luck with anything.Everything I have fried in them they have ruined.The pot stuck when I tried to boil pasta too Ugg.I am so over these .Don't waste your money like I did!!!!
We're not professional cooks but wanted heavy duty cookware. We bought this set for the price and it having pretty good reviews. Super heavy duty bottoms on the pans. You have to be careful on heat settings because it will burn quickly if you're not paying attention. Follow the instructions for cleaning and make sure you have 'Bar Keepers Friend '.
