I have 2 other Rachel Ray products and also love them. These pans are well made, and I love the teflon coating. But the best part for me is the silicon handle. I recently switched to a gas cooktop and the handles of my old pans kept getting hot, even though they were hollow. (They stayed cool on my ceramic cooktop.) With these pans, the handles stay cool and I don't need a potholder! My only wish is that the larger one was a little bigger. Guess I should have ordered RR's oval fry pan too.
