Let me preface by saying that this set has everything you would need as a beginner or professional cook with one caveat which I will go into detail later. Great for a first apartment or a college student. Great for a pro or home cook. The pots are fantastic. Easy to clean, easy to wash and the lids fit perfect. The storage containers are also wonderful. The non stick baking tray and pan are nice too. The problem children are the non stick frying pans. Yes they are non stick and work perfectly with a smidge of butter or oil. The issue I experienced is that the exterior of the frying pans cannot be easily cleaned. It seems that dripped food literally burns permanently on the sides and bottom of the frying pan. If you don't mind this ugliness on the frying pans then you should be very happy with this set. It has so many positives that I almost have to overlook this issue. But so you know...I have used magic erasers, sos pads, bar keepers friend, vinegar all the way down to just good ole soap, soaking and elbow grease. For the life of me I cannot get them clean. It's truly amazing considering I always cook on med low to medium heat. What they need to do is make the exterior stainless steel just like the pots. Instead it is some sort of painted surface simulated stainless steel if you will call it that. Absolutely terrible! I rate the set a 4 but it could have easily been a 5 if there were different frying pans. I would recommend this set. I hope this helps.
The whole set is excellent. The only bit of a downer was the size of the baking sheets. A little on the small side. But that is a small price to pay such wonderful quality stainless steel. An excellent buy. I highly recommend it for the discerning buyer. And it arrived in record time - three days!!
It is a necessity in a household. If you are just starting out it will take you through all your family parties and celebrations. what is especially wonderful is that they can be cleaned and maintained so they look as good as the day you took them out of the box. I love my farberware and have added to them over the years. They will always last.

Wanted to supplement my 40 yr old set of Farberware and this was a great choice especially at Overstock's price and a 12% coupon. Have been using these for a few months and there is nothing to criticize. Definitely recommend this set of cookware.
