I've been using these for about 6 weeks, and they really are a great value. Conduct heat well, don't feel flimsy or cheap, and they look great. I just use some Bar Keeper's Friend on them when I wash, and they've stayed shiny and new-looking so far.
After one use, the cookware had heat stains on the inside. These are definately not non-stick pans and they require a lot of special care. Bar Keeper's Friend will take off the stains...so far. Read up on stainless steel cookware before making the commitment to taking care of them.
I am an old lady but this is my first matched set of pans. The pans don't clean up as easily as some of the coated ones do but give a better sear on meats. They cook evenly and I would buy them again as I love the weight of them. Excellent buy in my estimation.
I like the look of this cookware, however, food really seems to stick to it when cooking. I have tried using more ollive oil, and it helps a little, but there is alot more food stuck to the pan than with my previous cookware. I am still getting used to it, tho.

As a person who is becoming more and more health conscious, it was very important to change my cookware from nonstick products to stainless steel. The stainless steal cookware was not only pleasing on the eyes but very worthy of the meals I prepare for my family. In addition, the cleanup wasn't bad. I'm still patting myself on the back for making such a wise decision.

I'm moving, downsizing, so I decided to throw out the old pots & pans & go full stainless. Cuisinart is a great name and the price was reasonable. I also like the pictures that showed the handles to be streamlined & lighter weight-- perfect for stove to oven. The package arrived timely and neatly packed. Tried pot & skillet out for a pasta dish and they are all I expected. Love them for my ceramic stove tops. I don't cook much, so when I do I want something that's functional, attractive & fun to work with. This completes it all for me.
This is the best cookware set I have ever owned. It took a divorce to get it, but a fair trade-off. Even heat distribution, highly dependable, works better than expected, and clean up is a breeze. Always ready to work and serve. (Can't say the same for the ex on any of those points). Save yourself the expense of a divorce. Get the Cuisinart Chefs Cookware Set. You'll never be left hanging nor disappointed with the outcome. Always a happy beginning and ending to any meal.
