Customer Review: look great, but performance problems
When i spend significant amounts of money for something that is supposed to be the top of the line, it is not unreasonable to expect a lot. Yes, they look and feel great, but two main complaints: 1) the lack of attention to certain significant details is something that seems to plague American manufacturing over German or Japanese, for example. The lids do not fit, they both move laterally across the top of the pots, and also rock and rattle back and forth on the verticle axis. The attention to quality and tolerances is not there and is just sloppy. This is not just whining: when cooking rice, I have to wedge aluminum foil between the pot and the lid to keep the steam in. 2) the heating is not all that even, for what you pay for. I get the feeling they skimped on materials and did not put a thick enough bottom on it. Seriously, I had an $80 Turkish made set of cookware with thick aluminum bottoms and glass lids with a long flange that looked like hell, but outperformed these.
Customer Review: Awesome set!
It really has everything you need to get started in the kitchen. I have been using this set for about two months (switched from Magnalite) and I absolutely love it. Buy the 6 qt. saute pan and maybe the 4-1/2 qt. pot along with it and you have a very complete set.
