The pots in my opinion are too thin, and the plastic handles are very light also!!

I like the cookware but the first time I used it I burned my hand on the handles because they got so hot from the gas stove. You have to use a pot holder to lift off the lid or pick up the pot if you are using a gas stove. I don't know if it is the same for using an electric stove. Also the bottom of the pans had scratch marks from the grates on the gas stove. I didn't expect that to happen. I don't think the quality is there. I bought the hard anodized cookware because that's what is recommended for a gas stove, but the handles should not get hot. They are like a heavy duty plastic. I was disappointed in this Rachel Ray product and I love Rachael Ray products. I wouldn't buy it again.

I absolutely love my new cookware set - everything cooks exactly right and they're so easy to clean. The only reason I didn't give it an "excellent" rating is because the teflon scratches fairly easily. Be sure to only use plastic utensils. Otherwise, it was a great value!

Please read before you order as the 15 piece cookware set is a joke. They actually counted a cheap plastic measuring spoon set as FIVE pieces!!! Much better off ordering a real 12 piece set of pans. Very deceiving advertising. The pans are attractive but not quality.

Fantastic set of cookware for a great price. Extremely pleased. Heavy - solid construction with the thick bottom. Cooking is improved by heating things more quickly than my old set of cookware. The non stick is great, although I would advise plastic or wood utensils even though the manufacturer claims you can use metal. When I used metal, a mark was left, but there was no damage. The handles do get hot so a potholder is needed when cooking. I'm glad I purchased them and would recommend this product to a friend. If I could I would rate this product between good and excellent.

The items on the website did really look like the actual items. The handles are poorly made, plastic and don't even match the cookware look. Not worth the money even for students!

you truly get what you pay for. the handles get hot while on burners and emit a burning plastic smell. it takes alot longer to bring liquids to a boil than my better cookware and heating is not evenly distributed.

It is a great deal for the price to get these beautiful cookware. Right out of the box I saw that the handles are durable and when I put it to the test, it did stay cool. The new set of pans have much thicker bottoms and I do think these will hod up for years. I have used the pans a few times and there are marks on the nonstick surfaces. I only use plastic utensils to cook with and wash by hand with a rag or sponge. They do clean up easy. I've had very expensive and inexpensive cookware and I do find these pans truly wonderful for the price I paid. Thanks to Overstock.com.

I've had other cookware that didn't hold up. This is a new piece, however, I can see the difference already. Food slides in the pan when cooking and slides right out onto the plate. Other non-stick cookware required the pan to be seasoned - this pan does not. Excellent pan, however, the handle doesn't feel solid (it's plastic). If the handle were stronger I'd give this 5 stars.

The first hint of quality came with the packaging. A box barely big enough to hold the cookware set inside; no plastic wrap or peanuts to protect the contents. When I opened the cookware set and started to remove the pieces, I was horrified. Heavy duty? These pans are so thin I am really afraid to even try using them. The so-called "stainless steel" looks like it was put on with a paintbrush. There are concentric circles in the finish of the interior. One of the pans has a scratch on the exterior which looks like it was covered with a coating that came right off. Several of the other pots have marks and smudges on them; it almost seems like this set was returned by a prior purchaser. And, as several other reviewers have pointed out, the bottoms are covered with a huge label that is next to impossible to get off. Two of the six lids have "Classy" engraved in the lid grasp; the other four do not. One of the lids is loose -- I am afraid the glass might fall out of it. The lid grasps themselves have what seems to be a piece soldered on top; it is not one solid piece but rather parts that were put together. I'm sure water is going to get inside when they are washed. I have not used these pots and, frankly, I am afraid to. I don't want to risk incurring any personal injury. I bought this set based on two very positive reviews here on Overstock. I don't know if the writers of those reviews were talking about the same set of cookware. Frankly, I'd return this if I could, but since the set has already been opened and washed, I don't think Overstock will take it back. This is basically an expensive, cheap set of cookware. Water under the bridge for me, I guess. Be forewared -- if you buy this set, you will regret it.

This pretty set of cookware does a good job of cooking food evenly and quickly. They're a snap to clean up after using. Food never sticks. And they look very good on my stove. Just as a precaution though, try and use only wooden, heavy gauge plastic, or rubber spoons and spatulas when stirring or serving. The stainless steel or metal kind may scratch the inside surface.

These pans have gotten scratched and I have no clue how when I only use the plastic utensils that came with them. The handles are CONSTANTLY coming loose - very irritating.

The paint on the outside burnt off when I tried using it. The whole kitchen smelled of plastic. I definitely not recommend this product to anyone.

Please do not waste your money on this. Horrible, used it only once and clear plastic started peeling off of it. Had to throw all the food away.

After the first use I noticed slight scratches in a pan. I use only plastic utensils. That is not acceptable.

great pan only drawback was the stainless steel knob on glass cover which got very hot during heating I already had some plastic knobs, so I replaced the steel knob with the plastic one and now I don't burn my fingers.or have to use a potholder.

This pan is very light and thin. The plastic on the handle started melting during its first use.

Love the design of these pots. Now I can toss the too big, awkward-sized, plastic colander I was using!

This is a great product but since it's glass be forewarned that you have to handle it carefully. Also, it cannot be left unattended since the lid is plastic and melts easily.

I would have to agree that the handles appear to be a plastic, and they are not heavy as the appear to look on the picture. I was not pleased.. So, I am looking for more .. I will use them occasionally anymore than that they may break...not worth the cost..
The key to choosing cookware lies not in price but in matching the material to your needs. Cookware can be made from a variety of products, and not all these products are built the same.

You want to get cookware that is not only durable but also efficient.

The following tips will help you care for your nonstick pans and keep them working like new. By properly caring for your nonstick cookware after each use, you can be assured it will last a long time and remain in good condition.

They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, but in many homes, it's also the biggest source of energy waste. Kitchen lighting, refrigeration and cooking consume about 41.5 percent of the total home energy use; add space heating, cooling, and water heating to that total, and you'll see your kitchen is quite the energy hog. Creating an eco-friendly kitchen includes your choice of appliances, but it also goes beyond that; the floors, paint, pots and pans, and other kitchen items you use can make your kitchen eco-friendly as well.
