I ordered this set due to a great deal that was offered a few weeks back, making the set more affordable than the older model. This model, POT412 is the new version (with improved handle shaping and placement-I contacted Cuisinox to ask about the difference). I've always had cheap model Revereware, or bought scratch and dent pans from stores. This is the first nice set of cookware I've ever purchased. And about about price; I checked several places and Overstock price has yet to be beat.
I can't say the quality is excellent because I have only used the pots a couple times. They look great and I love the color. I cooked oatmeal in the large pot and it didn't stick and cleaned up very easily. I used the small frying pan to cook some protein pancakes and did not use any oil. The pancakes didn't stick at first then they started to stick but when I lower the heat to medium they stopped sticking and worked great and cleaned up easily as well. A friend bought this brand because consumer reports recommended them for the value and I agree the price is great for the quality and quantity of pans that you get. So far I love my news pots.
I wanted a classic set of pots and pans and I have been happy with every thing except the skillets. I like nonstick and these are supposed to be dishwasher safe but after putting them through the dishwasher, they came out a faded color. Boo! I am in the process of having them replaced by Overstock. Don't put the skillets in the dishwasher!
