Bought this for my daughter for her Birthday which is in her early 20's as she needed pot & pans . This was the first good set that she has ever had. She doesn't do dishes very well but they do clean up good and still look good. The shipping was fast and they looked good when they arrived . Was really hoping to get me some but a bigger set as I like cast iron for skillets am still looking for me a bigger set of these. I would recommend these to any young adult start out for a good starter set . I even bought additional pot so she would have enough pots . She fries lots in these and makes lots of spaghetti sauce in the pots..
I read the reviews before purchasing. Loved it mainly for the convenient lids for draining liquid. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a starter set for daily cooking. Great quality for the price!

I had bought one of these for myself first because it has pour spouts and drain lids. Then I bought one set for my brother in law for his birthday. I thought he wouldn't be crazy about them because they are pots and pans, but he was. When I called him he was at his neighbors house showing them the gift. He loves them and it is a gift that will last for years. He uses them and loves them as much as I do. The price on overstock can't be beat and either can the shipping cost. Thanks Overstock.
As always with Overstock, received this order well within the time promised. We purchased these for a second home and did not want to spend a lot on cookware. These are exactly as described and are great looking. I especially like the "self-draining" feature. (The lids come with holes on the lip and, when turned, allow you to drain off the cooking fluid.) They are not heavy gauge which may be either a benefit or a fault, depending on your needs. For me, like the Baby Bear in Goldilocks, they're "just right."
I had this set of cookware several years ago, then got robbed, and missed it more than anything else I lost! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Excellent quality, heats up very evenly, a breeze to clean, and does not get scratched. The spouts on the side are more useful than you think: drain water, grease, anything without having to get additional dishes to wash. Holes can be used for steaming, or, if you don't want them, just turn the lid a few inches and voila! At this price, it's an amazing investment. I adore my cookware!!!
These pots were selected as an Engagement gift for my daughter. We were very pleased to receive these lovely pots. The clear glass lids make it easy to keep an eye on whats cooking. The utensils have a ledge to keep from falling into the pot. The weight of the pots provides even cooking temperature. This was a great value and it was a pleasure not to carry them home.
I have owned this cookware for several months. It is by far the best I have ever had. The pour spouts and straining lids are wonderful. I don't have to worry about getting out my colander when I want to drain spaghetti. I just pop on the lid, turn it up, and start draining. Because of the thick/heavy base, you can use a lower heat setting. It retains heat so well that once you get your food cooking you can turn down the burner saving gas or electricity in the process. Also, the heavy base on it keeps your food warm for quite a while after you take it off the burner.There's only one improvement I think could be made in this cookware and that is heat resistant handles. I have arthritis in my hands and sometimes I have to use a thick potholder because the handles get so hot. With a bulky potholder, my grip is not quite as strong and I risk dropping the pot. Other than the handles, I think this cookware is perfect.
Love these! Best part is the holes in the side of the pan so that you can pour off water instead of getting out a colander to drain noodles, etc Wish the fry pan had teflon. I don't use it- too much work to clean but the pots are GREAT!
Great set, fast shipping. Would definitely recommend to a friend and I would buy additional pieces or replacement pieces of this set. Great on the wallet, too.

Really liked this set of cookware. Sturdy, heavy duty and handles are hallow so they conduct the heat.

These were purchased as a gift for my bf (who loooves to cook). He's used them for about two months now and hasn't had any complaints. My only issue is they've already started to discolor a little bit, and we take very good care of our cookware. Even heat, good cooking surface, easy to clean, etc etc. Just wish they were still as shiny and pretty as they were two months ago. ;)
I was looking for a good complete SS set for not too much $$$ for a better half of two months. Read previous buyer reviews and can vouch for accuracy, very nice cookset, hefty, cleans well, finish is durable and I believe it's made locally(although I may be wrong on that count, set arrived in simple box, no factory packaging). No biggie, very happy with my purchase, highly recommend for anyone looking for affordable quality stainless steel cookset.
The cookware is very stylish. I like the pour spouts, and so far, so good. The only reason I haven't given it a 5-star review is that I haven't used it long enough to tell how durable it is, but it looks fairly durable, and it feels hefty (but not too hefty).
