I purchased this set based on the previous reviews and I have not been disappointed! The set is a nice weight, not too heavy or too light. I love the see through tops and the fact that every pot or pan has its own top. The vent for steam is great on the tops. No heat handles are a plus. There is even heating and the set washes up nicely in the sink. I have put some pieces in the dishwasher and that does not seem to be a problem either. Every dish I have cooked has turned out restaurant quality with little effort. I honestly don't know how I managed before getting this set. The set is very attractive and looks nice on the stove. I am so glad I purchased it.
