This Farberware Millenium 10-piece cookware set features a fully encapsulated thick aluminum core to provide exceptional heat distribution; Suitable for use on all stovetops including glass and induction. Glass lids let you monitor cooking progress without releasing moisture or nutrients.
This is a wonderful cookware set for the price. The pieces are a good weight with thick bottoms. The pans heat up incredibly fast. I'm used to cooking with cast iron skillets and wow, what a change this was! No more standing around for 5 minutes waiting on my pans to get hot enough to cook with. The handles on these do not get hot, even when I used the hottest setting on my stove. So far there's no discoloration and they clean incredibly easily. I can't imagine paying hundreds (or thousands!) of dollars for a stainless steel cookware set when I know how fantastic this set is.

I like this cookware set so much I gifted a set to my best girlfriend! First of all...it's pretty. But, of course, the real proof is in the performance and in that area I have found these pots and pans to be wonderful. I have an electric stove top and I did need to adjust the heat down a bit when doing a saute. This adjustment is now second nature. I love that these pots and pans go from stove top to oven, which is a major part of why I chose this type of cookware. Farberware is a famiiliar brand to me and I like that factor. I've looked at lots of cookware out there, trying to find cookware that fits my needs and my pocketbook. This set fits the bill perfectly. The glass lids are terrific, too. The only thing that would be nice is if Farberware made one additional piece...a 4 quart, five inch tall pot. But I'm doing very well with the pieces in the set and quite happy with this purchase. In addition, the weight of this cookware is very nice...just the right amount of heft without being too heavy.

This is a decent lower priced stainless cookware. It's definitely not as well made as the 'Emeril' cookware I've bought before, though. It does have a heavy disc on the bottom to distribute heat. However, the sides of the cookware are not thick, and the disc just stops abruptly. What I notice is that every utensil tends to stick and burn right where the disc quits.
However, the most disappointing aspect of this cookware is the inside finish. It ain't smooth. Unlike my 'Emeril' pots and pans, the process where the pots/pans are finished on the inside is very visible and isn't completely smooth. No, nothing like a Circulon, but not smooth, either. What happens with this is that food tends to stick with those swirls.
My mom's old Farberware lasted for all of my growing up and until she died. It's a shame that they've just turned their name over to the Chinese to make indifferent products. But, isn't it the way of most of our industries?

I like these pots! I bought an inductive cooktop and none of my existing pots would work with it. I found these, and thought that even if they weren't great, the set was less than $100. I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived! The finish is mirror-like, they are heavy-bottomed, have sturdy, riveted-on handles, and really dressed up my kitchen. My only complaint is that the lids don't seal very well, and overhang the edge of the pot. When cooking with a lid on, steam blows out of the area where the lid meets the pot, condenses in the cooler air, and water drips down onto my cooktop. My Martha Stewart pot lid has a steam vent in the top to relieve the pressure and keep steam from blowing out the lid/pot joint. These lids do not. Even with this flaw, I still think I did good for the money I spent on the set. I would buy them again.

I just got a new Induction top stove and none of my current pots or pans worked. I bought this set and was surprised at the quality for the money. I got a 10 piece set for what 1 or 2 pans would normally cost. I'm very happy with the set.
I purchased the Faberware Millennium 10 piece cookware set for my son's first apartment. I had been looking for over 6 months for a great quality at a good price. The quality of this set is exceptional, I wish my first set of cookware was this nice. This will last him for many years and be able to with stand his daily use. I would recommend this to anyone.
Does this "Core" extend up the sides or is it just in the base?fab322 on Mar 1, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This QuestionThere are no answers to this question yet, be the first to answer it.
