I have enjoyed this set of cookware so far. I love the heft of these pans and the thicker handles. They have proven to be very easy to clean and that is why I bought them. I have bought other cookware that had the hard anodized coating but they didn't last as long as I would have liked. I do not use any utensils that are metal yet the other pans got scratched up very easily. My hope is that this set will last longer than those other pans. I have a griddle by a famous brand (starts with a C) that after two years of use still looks brand new. This set seems to be on par with that griddle. I also like that I got this set at a very good price. I love shopping at Overstock.com and love the low prices offered on items I use everyday. I know I can shop Overstock.com and feel safe in doing so.
I didn't want to rate this cookware on just looks alone, but it does look great. Even better, it works as presented. It has been over a month and I have used it every day and I still think it was a great choice. It cleans with a sponge, and so far, nothing has stuck to the pan. Given the choice, I would buy it again.
I'm surprised to see bad reviews on these pans. If you always use wooden utensils, there shouldn't be any problem with the coating. I bought my set from Overstock three years ago, and being vegan, I do a LOT of my own cooking. Best pans I've ever purchased. The handles on the lids will stay cool for a long time (unless you're simmering for a long time. I use them for everything. If they start flaking, I'll buy another set!
Purchase this set one year ago. The coating is completely gone off the bottoms of all the pots and pans. I never used a metal utensil when cooking with this cookware and never used anything more than a sponge to clean them. I often had to soak the pots because food stuck to bottom often. The handles on the lids get exceedingly hot when using even low heat. Tried to contact manufacturer regarding my issues, could not even find the manufacturer anywhere. Finally, Overstock researched for me and got me a contact. The manufacturer no longer exists and the company that has taken them over will do nothing to resolve issue. This product is JUNK!!!!!
Got more than what I expected. Hope to order another set very soon. Thumbs up!!!

I bought this set in January, thinking it would last me a couple of years and 4 months later I'm pretty close to throwing them away. They were a non-stick dream for the first few months, and I have taken ridiculously good care of them, but 3 months in the non-stick seemed to be non-existent anymore, no matter how I washed them everything clung on for dear life to these pans, they look burnt. I followed all the care instructions but to no avail. As it's been 4 months I am out of overstock's warranty period and I have discovered the manufacturer has no warranty in place either. Please learn from my experience and don't buy this set! It's a waste of your money!

I bought these based on Consumer Reports' recommendation of these as a Best Buy. I'm glad I did. Even happier that I bought them at Overstock because the price was outstanding.
