This is a good quality set. There is a nice variety in pot sizes, so you always have one that suits your purpose. It is easy to clean, and conducts heat well, and it is oven safe too, which is very convenient.

An Excellent Product
I got this set for Christmas, and I love it. It is durable and really cooks food quickly (takes some getting used to). This was one of my favorite gifts as it is something I will be using everyday. The spouts on the sauce pans are really handy for draining things, and the handles both on the pots and the lids never get hot! An incredible set.

We bought these on sale and just love them. The strainer feature on the pots is so handy. It's taking me a little getting used to not turning my burner on high to boil water anymore. They recommend using nothing higher than medium high. I did manage to get my skillet too hot while browning some meat & could not get it to come clean, even after soaking. It looked brown & discolored. I tried my Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaner and it worked great. It got rid of all the discoloration with a plastic pot scrubber and a little elbow grease.

I use only Cuisinart cookware simply because it is the best. It's the best quality & I have been using it for the past 15 years and have had absolutely no problem with it. I use it every day and my pots and pans still look new. I would definitely recommend this for everyone.

Love these pots
Very happy with this set. I did a lot of research before I bought, and read a lot of positive reviews, and I am very pleased that I took the advice and went with this one!
Love the strainer lids, as well as the pour lip built into the pots. Pots heat up and distribute heat well. Clean up very nicely (now that I've learned the white vinegar soak trick!). The stock pot is the perfect size for a big batch of soup/chili or even corn...but it doesn't take up too much space in the cupboard.
The only negative is that the lids don't fit tightly to the pots. I like to use my pots to steam (veggies, rice, etc) and I end up using old pots for this purpose. On the other hand, I don't have to worry about boil overs because the lids give good ventilation...guess you can't have it both ways!
This set is excellent value for money (I bought mine for half off). I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone!

Very good purchase
Very satisfied with the cookware, high durability. I am very pleased with the set, thought the handles would get hot when cooking, but never had a problem. I wouldn't trade them for anything.

Very satisfied with the quality and construction of this set, especially the aluminum encapsulated base that helps to distribute heat - reducing hot spots; the glass straining lids - no need to dirty a strainer; the choice of pieces in the set - makes it an economical choice over buying individual pieces.
I haven't mastered using the skillets without a lot of sticking yet. It's getting used to different heat levels and cooking style, but they sure are beautiful.
I do find it a little pricey at regular price. I bought this set when it was on sale - that was an extremely good buy.
