I wanted to get my boyfriend a little 'just because' gift and I figured this would be perfect (he's a chef and his favorite color is blue). Based on the price I knew these weren't top of the line pans but they were perfect for what I wanted them for. We already have good pots and pans so these weren't purchased with the intention of becoming our everyday set. We both love the color, however one of them was scratched (which surprised me considering they were nicely packaged). Since there was only 1 set available when I made my purchase, I knew that I couldn't exchange them. We haven't used them yet so I'm not sure how good they are. Overall we are both happy with them and the next time we have dinner at home we plan on trying them out!
