I almost purchased these though a national store but thought I would check Overstock first. Great idea...this set was $150 more at a national retailer who has sales ALL the time. I sent these to my son and he is extremely happy with the quality.
My husband is the cook and he was in need of new cookware. We trust the Cuisinart name and have been very happy with the quality of these. Very solid, not cheap pots and pans at all. We hand wash them all the time so we don't damage in the dishwasher and think we'll have these for a long time!
This cookware is a pleasure to cook with and easy to clean. Originally, I became aware of this cookware when I saw it in a department store. I purchased one pot, about a year ago - and seeing as it held up under my husbands misuse (he ruins pots and pans by overheating or using the wrong utensils on non-stick surfaces). The hard anodized surface has been a lifesaver,.Truly. I couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of this set.
I bought this set for my husband for Christmas who loves to cook. It is a great quality cookware set. Because of the way it is made it takes less time to cook while cooking at lower temperatures. Keep that in mind while using this set, as you might end up over cooking your food. I would highly recommend this set to anyone. Please note: it is not dishwasher safe!
