Great item that cleans up well in dishwasher and if you clean it by hand washing. Its a great set, that I personally have really wanted for a very long time. It works well on gas stoves. It has multiple pots for cooking that allows for easy cooking and clean up.
These are the very best pots I have ever used. Perfectly even heating across the bottoms. And did I mention that they are gorgeous? Very easy to keep clean, just swish or wipe out the big pieces and pop into the DW. Stunning! I had no idea that this set would be so perfect for me. If this set is in your budget, you cannot go wrong. Enjoy, because I love mine!
Could not beet the price offered on "O" - I tried :-) and I do love these the entire pot/pan is oven ready also. love that. I use this so much. The only draw back is I wish these sets had come with 2 each of the sauce pans. almost have to spend the same amount for two more individual sauce pans :-) also very pretty set and so easy to keep clean and shiny.
Everything looked good, but on the smallest pot there are a few tiny black spots (like pepper). I scrubbed and scrubbed but they haven't come off. They don't seem to affect the cooking, just the look of the pot. They tend to be hotter than my old pans so it takes a little getting used to.
pan sticks and the handles become warmer and warmer after a time while cooking - just opposite to what is said in description ("Handles stay cool" feature). moreover - handles are inconvenient and slippery. when you pick a heavy pot with hot anything inside - it is extremely complicated holding it with a tiny ribbed handle...
We haven't had these long enough to really judge. Some of the pots have small brown circular spots on the inside bottoms. We use Bartenders Friend to clean them but the spots remain. It's not a big deal just a heads up. Food cooks wonderfully in them.
This item was actually purchased for the home we're selling as we have and induction range & few of our existing cookware was compatible. We ended up replacing most of it and this was one of the sets we purchased. As buyers are a bit wary of induction we purchased this set as an inclusion in the sale. Beautiful, well balanced and includes everything you need for cooking options.
LOVE! Excellent clean up too. Fantastic set for the price, no reason to try to find a better caliber or more expensive set. I think you get far more than you pay for in quality here. I will buy another set when I have some extra funds just to have more pans.
