I bough my wife a different set of the same brand several weeks ago, very well made. We liked it so much that we bought this set.
The lids are glass so you can see through them without lifting, unless its steamed up. They are also manufactured to a closer tolerence than some brand we had used, a tight but easy to lift fit, a great seal.
Cook evenly and a good and comfortable grip.
Slightly on the heavy side, to be expected from multi layer stainless steel cook ware.

I received a set of thes pots a few years ago and have always been concerned about them. These pans have a heavy clad bottom with very thin side walls. The result is a pot that retains heat for extended periods of time, even when removed from the heat source. The thin walls of the pot combined with the heavy bottom result in very uneven heating throughout the pot and food often sticks or burns to the bottom even at medium to low heats. More importantly, the smallest pot of this set, is very poorly balanced. Even slight touching can cause it to overbalance and tip over. This recently happened to me while cooking a pot of barley containing broth. The result was a huge very hot mess pouring all over my cooktop which was difficult to clean up. If the pot had been full (it was about 1/2 full), the liquid spilling could have resulted in serious burns. This set is not worth the money and definitely not worth the risk...you can get better quality for comparable prices. My real suggestion is to buy quality cookware with a well-built construction.
I bought these as a gift for my daughter and I couldn't be more satisfied with the quality and the beauty of these pans. I also bought the matching utensils. Shopping with overstock has been a true pleasure.
This set is so beautiful I took a few days just to have have sitting out to enjoy the view. The lid handles and pot handles don't heat up which is wonderful and the pots are sturdy without being too heavy. You can't go wrong with this purchase.

The description says the surface is non stick. Is it non-stick or stainless steel?cherishops on Feb 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, thank you for your question. I'm sorry that is wrong. These are not non-stick. I am having that removed. Thank you for bringing that to our attention.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 22, 2013
The surface is stainless steel, but I have found that nothing sticks to the skillets if just a light spray of cooking oil is used before hand. Frying eggs is a breeze!deanospumoni on Mar 27, 2013
Under product details it says the materials are aluminum, not stainless steel. Please let me know which is correct.
Thank you.judymankus7 on Nov 24, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
