Why did you choose this product?
We have been using this cookware set for almost a full month now. They heat up quickly and evenly and although not a non-stick surface, they are very manageable. One negative, the metal handles absorb the heat from the pots and pans, causing them to heat up. My wife has been scalded on more than one occasion since she is not used to the handles heating up. All of our other pans (non stainless) have rubber insulated handles and don't heat up. Overall, we have been very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend it to others....

Healthier to cook with, but wow. I CAN NOT clean these properly.Read More
Although very solid and shiny these pans do not cook well. Even when properly greased to prevent sticking I have never been successful making an omelette. They turn into scrambled eggs. Would not purchase again regardless of price.Read More

I did quit a bit of research with overstocks comments before purchasing this cookware set. We were changing from nonstick cookware that flaked off with use to a stainless for safe cooking. I have always respect cuisinart name, and thought price would get a great set. Unfortunately, with use the pans do not retain the stainless steal perfect look . Even with immediately drying. I do like cooking with them. I also had to have one pan replaced due to flaking off of stainless on inside bottom in 4 places after first use. Customer service was over the top awesome!Read More

This cookware set is beautiful!! I was very impressed with the style of this set. They are a good weight, not too heavy. I haven't had them long but so far they're great. Make sure to wipe them dry after washing to keep the beautiful stainless look. They seem to take a little longer than my other cookware sets to heat up but once it gets going they're great. I am very particular about what goes in my kitchen and I'm very happy with my purchase.Read More
