Ordered this set as a surprise birthday present for my wife. (It was a surprise in the sense that she found them and instructed me to order them...which kinda surprised me)
They arrived quickly and well protected. My wife opened them as soon as they arrived, inspected them, and finding them in perfect condition, attempted to repackage them so I would not know she had already opened her surprise birthday present. Most people not belonging to MENSA are unable to repack a 15 piece cookware set, close the box properly, and re-tape the box making it appear to be a brand new unopened surprise birthday present. My wife, having not yet been invited to join MENSA, totally succeeded. (At failing to close the box at all). In a not so subtle attempt to quell my line of questioning as to why they would send a 15 piece cookware set in an obviously 13 piece sized box, she promptly opened her surprise birthday present and tried them out.
The shrimp scampi was excellent, cleanup was easy (I can attest to that first hand...Hey, it was her birthday after all) and then she admitted that she had snooped through her surprise birthday present before I got home from work and had actually attempted to re-close it. And that was the biggest surprise of all...not that she actually snooped through the surprise birthday present...that she actually admitted it.
Oh yeah, the review...If you buy this cookware set, you will not be disappointed. We (My wife) has been using them for several weeks now and have never had any food come even close to sticking to the pans and, many times, all the cleaning that has been required was to wipe the pan out with a paper towel. (Tip: Let the pans cool down first). We truly love this set and believe anyone who purchases them will be as pleasantly surprised as we were.

I love this cookware. Researched several sets and this set is a great value for the money. The only concern I had was once it arrived I read that it is not recommended for flat cooktops, due to porcelain paint. After further investigation, I discovered it is fine to use as long as you are not careless.

The package came and it was obviously repacked.. A big red flag. The measuring spoons were missing. Not a big deal to me since I really don't cook much. The pans were bent so the lids did not fit. I was able to bend the pans to get them to fit. One of the handles was slightly damaged. These were no doubt the reasons it was sent back. Overstock didn't care they just sent it out again. It wasn't worth it to me to return it, but I will be cautious about buying from them again. As for the cookware itself, It is difficult to pour out of because of the design, the pans are rounded inward so to pour out, liquid tends to run down the side of the pans. I would recommend spending more for good stainless set.
Teflon has gotten better. But there was nothing in the description about ceramic cook tops and the care instructions said the cookware is not advised for ceramic stoves. And the large cook pan lid did not fit and always has a white ring on the inside of the pan
