you truly get what you pay for. the handles get hot while on burners and emit a burning plastic smell. it takes alot longer to bring liquids to a boil than my better cookware and heating is not evenly distributed.
My husband ordered this set for me for Christmas, then we decided to give it to our daughters as a gift, and they love them...they were easy to handle, cooks evenly, and are still as beautiful as they were when they were new...thanks Overstock, for such great products...!!!
I bought this set for myself since I had had no pans, this is a great set for a college student. I'm a student so I wanted somthing Gourmet lookig and this was definetly it. The old down side is that that handles are not as nice on ths pictures, the handles look more like plastic than wood, but for the price you really cant complain. These will do the job.
I love it and have been using it ever since i bought all set! I love everything about it and so far there is nothing to complain about this product. I love it and would like to buy another one for someone too!
These pots are very appealing to the eyes but require close attention on use... Upon first use, my kids and I smelled something strange and realized the handles were burning! The handles appear to be a melamine type material that burns and cracks when exposed to high temps (as from gas stove flames). If the fire is not controlled to stay underneath the pot, you risk damaging the handles.

I bought these as a gift for my sister - who does indeed cook a lot. She had bought a winter home that was fully furnished, but the pots and pans were in very poor repair. I had these sent to her as a house warming gift. She loved them. She was very pleased with the finish and the quality and stability of the handles. The price couldn't be beat.
