  • Best Cookware Ever

    I purchased and received this cookware about a month ago. I couldn't be more pleased with the product. I read all the reviews and noticed there were several complaints of food sticking. I consider myself to be a good cook and having had many years of experience, I realized the complaints had to have come from those who did not "season" the cookware before using it. I took the time to do that and have not had one thing stick in the cookware. It heats evenly as stated and everything I cook in it cooks as if I'm using non-stick cookware. I have to say, I do not put it in the dishwasher or use soap on the skillets as I feel the detergents are too harsh for any cookware and ruin the finish. I have had several different sets of cookware that claim to be some of the best but this definitely wins hands down. The product was received very quickly and I couldn't be happier. Thank you for excellent service and an excellent product at an excellent price.

  • These pots and pans are ok.

    The pots and pans are beautiful. First time I have dealt with Stainless steel. Instructions do not include seasoning the pots and pans before use. Without it they do not cook very well. Food sticks even if you add oil to the pan. I found this information on the internet after a lady told me she had seasoned hers. There is a lot of extra care that has to be used on the cookware but I am sure that once I get use to it, it will not be a problem. At least they sit flat on my ceremic top stove.

  • Great Investment

    I bought these pots and pans as a set, and have since added a few extra pieces. They are wonderful to cook with. It is not hard to cook, food does not stick, you have to know how to cook with stainless steel. As far as clean up is considered, it is not a problem, you have put a little bit of elbow grease into it, but it is not a issue. I am so happy with this purchase. i can make the most perfect omelet without it sticking. You just add a little bit of butter. In regards to cooking, you should heat the pan a little then add the food. I usually cook on low or medium with these pans. They are well worth the price and think they should last a very long time. What are you waiting for , put your order in.

  • great cookware set

    i bought this set for my daughter in puallup, wa...she loves it..just needs a large potrack now lol keep these good buys coming overstock..the free s&h wasn't bad either

  • Happy as a claim

    This Cuisinart cookware set is awesome. I could hardly wait for my new shiny pots and and pans to arrive. I have a family of five and the 12 inch skillet and large size of the saute pan are most appropriate for fixing large amounts of food. I shopped around and had the best price for the quantity received (17 pieces). I wish Cuisinart would have included a Dutch over in the set. That would have made my set totally complete. I would have given the product an excellent rating except for the fact that the handles to the lids get hot and I have to use a potholder to remove when cooking for long periods of time. Nevertheless, I still love my new cookware.

  • Very Impressive cookware

    This set was bought for my wife as a combination anniversary & birthday gift for our 2nd home in AZ. She was very surprised , but the cookware is absolutely gleaming in stainless shine. The frying pans clean up very, very easily and completely. So far that is all we've used, but very, very satisfied with our purchase.

  • The BEST cookware EVER!

    I received my set for Christmas and have been cooking with them since i got them. It's now February. I have fried, sauteed, boiled, baked, left food in overnight (actually a few days) and my pans STILL gleam. 1. READ the directions which provides tips for cooking with and caring for these pans. 2. They are designed to heat up faster and hold heat longer. So, you MUST cook on LOW heat AND let the pan heat up FIRST! For some stoves, medium may me low enough. If not, go down to medium low. 3. Cleaning is easy with a little planning. Soak the hardest stuck on mess in soapy, hot water. Leave overnight. Then clean as usual. Any cloudy areas or spots will come clean using all natural white cleaning vinegar. Heinz makes it and it can be found in the same aisle as vinegar you cook with. The vinegar restores shine to my pans after normal cleaning with soap and water. I use just enough vinegar to cover stubborn areas and scrub with a finger tip. YES! a finger, no nail just the skin from the finger. All particles dislodge easily. Pour out the vinegar and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. Do NOT listen to the negative posts. And you absolutely DO NOT need to season these pans! If i could post the last baked on mess and the after pic of the same pan once cleaned you would be a total believer. Give these pans a go! I've already given away and thrown out ALL of my old cookware. Happy cooking :)

I just received my order and love the pots. The smallest fry pan seems to have a defect on the bottom. There are scratches in a circular pattern that seem to be very deep. What can I do about that? I don't want to send back the whole set. Suzycakes on Mar 1, 2015

I just received this cookware to use on my induction cooktop, but they did not work. I tested the cookware with a magnet, which I found to be the test if cookware will work or not on an induction cooktop, and the magnet did not attract. I do not have any need for cookware that does not work on my induction cooktop. Because the Q&A stated this cookware would work on induction cooktops I do not feel I should have top pay to return the cookware. Please lukeymom on Jun 13, 2013
