I purchased this set as a housewarming gift for my boyfriend. the pots are very thick and seem durable. I like the vent in each lid as well as the handles, and they were for an excellent price. i didnt really like the quality of the utensil set that they threw in with the pots, they were cheap looking and not asthetically pleasing. I also wish it had come with some pans.We have only used them a few times but overall i would recommend this set to anyone.
