I have been searching high and low for pots in size 6, 8 and 12 qts. I cook for 6 people so need big pots. This review is for Cusinart Chef Classic's 12 qts. The top lid is stainless steel and NOT glass. Stainless steel lid is better than glass so I am keeping this top even though there are some short comings. The shape and size of the pot is perfect. However, I find the stainless steel to be a bit thin compare to Tools of the Trade that I bought from a local department store over 10 years ago. Also, there is spots on the stainless steel after you use the pot. I have a feeling it is not 18/10 since the stainless steel discolored. The pot is super shiny so scratches are visible very easily. The steamer basket (the one with holes) turned black after using only once. This basket must be made from a lower grade of stainless steel. I used it to cook pasta, soup, curry and corn. It is a bit tall for me but it works fine aside from the metal turning black. I'm on a budget so I'm keeping this pot.

I love my cook ware from Cuisinart. Easy to clean and maintain however, the lids get very hot. They need to be reinforced with a different material.

This is a great cookware set. It was well packaged in the box, all of the pieces are VERY shiny, no scratches, marks etc. Handles are very sturdily attached with oversized rivets. Lids fit well, and are also very highly polished stainless steel. Comes with lifetime warranty from Cuisinart. I was anticipating getting this set, and I am most pleased with what arrived. I highly recommend.

I bought this set of cookware for my daughter. She is very pleased wit the quality. She says that the food cooks more quickly than her old pans due to more effective hit distribution. She also says that clean up is a breeze and overall, she is thrilled with the cookware.

I have this cookware set and have been using it practically every day for 6-7 years. I couldn't be happier with it. Granted, I didn't purchase a set from Overstock, but rather got mine from *** during a big sale...but it is the exact same set/or at least appears to be...so I thought I would post a review. I got so tired of having non-stick coatings eventually become ratty looking and/or start wiping off on my towels. If you can see dark stuff on your towel or flaking from your cookware you definitely NEED to get a new set of anything...but I decided that I didn't want anymore coated cookware and went with stainless. I have never regretted it. They cook evenly/beautifully...they're a nice weight...not SO HEAVY that you need muscle building to lift the pan (becomes alot more important to you the older you get) but heavy enough to be of good/solid quality. If you're debating on non-stick cookware vs. stainless; I can promise you my stainless is just as easy to clean up as any non-stick cookware...and it IS, IF you follow the manufacturer's instructions and preheat your cookware on medium before adding meat/eggs, etc. I'll use a tspn of butter or a few drops of water to test for proper temp (read the directions) and when it sizzles/evaporates/melts the temp is perfect...and you can add your meat, etc. If you DON'T preheat you may end up with a sticking problem...but its easily cleaned up with a stainless scrubbie (on the INSIDE of your pans ONLY). Buy it...I think you'll be glad you did.

This fry pan is as described and of good quality; however, I wish I had looked further and found the Cuisinart 12" fry pan, which I have had before. It has handles on two sides which make it much easier to use, especially with a large 12" pan.

I have been wanting this set of Stainless Steel cookware for a few years now and I FINALLY got it! This set is almost as good at All Clad with a Significantly better price. I am actually going to order another set because I need more pots...I cook a lot :) They are on the heavy side, but not as heavy as cast iron. They will last a lifetime and because they are multi-clad all the way around, you don't have to worry about scorching your food. Cleanup is a breeze, I put them in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling. I HIGHLY recommend this cookware.

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 did quit a bit of research with overstocks comments before purchasing this cookware set. We were changing from nonstick cookware that flaked off with use to a stainless for safe cooking. I have always respect cuisinart name, and thought price would get a great set. Unfortunately, with use the pans do not retain the stainless steal perfect look . Even with immediately drying. I do like cooking with them. I also had to have one pan replaced due to flaking off of stainless on inside bottom in 4 places after first use. Customer service was over the top awesome!

Purchased to replace my 10-ish year old set of Cafe Collection cookware which was starting to get pinholes in the pans. Much lighter than my old set - very easy to lift and maneuver even the large skillet one-handed if necessary. Haven't use the steamer insert yet but love the pasta one!! I do wish the lids were see through - didn't think it'd be such an issue when I bought the set but now I really wish they weren't solid. Overall a great set that cooks evenly and cleans easily - just remember to wipe them down so you don't have water spots! :)

This set is great for cooking pasta for a large group. It also has a large strainer insert that is perfect for steaming clams. It would also be great for steaming veggies. We love it!

It's a complete set of Cuisinart cookware that should sum it up.

Meets my need for a suitable replacement for an older stainless steel fry pan. In addition, my existing glass cover fits like a glove.

I cannot say enough great things about my new cookware! It is beautiful, cooks evenly and quickly, and is easy to clean up. I handwash them to keep them beautiful. Well made and the set is all we'll need for our family of two.

So tickled to get a new set of cookware. We have only been married 24 years and this is the first set we have actually bought. The first set we received at the reception and the second set we got many years later as a Christmas gift. I have been pleasantly happy with this set. I read all the other reviews and took into consideration what the other reviewers wrote (BTW, thank everyone of you for taking the time to post) I have Bar Keepers Friend on hand at all times to clean the cookware. They do stick if the heat is too high, but I can fix eggs perfectly by adding a small amount of water with the oil to the pan and not turning it up too high. I am thinking we are saving energy since the heat doesn't have to be all the way up. Also the added benefit of NOT having Teflon coating has tickled me pink!!! Can't think who makes that right now, but they can eat their own carcinogens. Also that the cookware isn't aluminum, but steel helps me to sleep because we all know that aluminum is hazardous to our health as well!
