After a month of researching the best deal and quality on cookware, I went for the T-fal. Other reviewers had said it was a great 'beginners' set, but I have to believe its a great set for anyone. Every feature this product boosts is spot on. Food doesn't stick, they heat evenly, the fact you can put them in the oven has been a life saver in many dinner party preparation rushes, and for the price, 12 pieces is wonderful. I would recommend these to anyone. Clean up is quick and the products are sturdy. LOVE THEM!
