I am very pleased with this product overall. I've had the set for nearly six months now and have no complaints! The other reviews were correct in saying that food does sometimes stick, but the pots clean up easily if soaked for a half hour or so (or overnight). Also correct - you never need to go beyond the medium range; they heat up fast and evenly. I've used them on the range and in the oven and they did a fine job both ways. They also shine up well even after daily use.
