Rated 1 out of 5Â by sullima Upon First use, Lid Shattered
I purchased this set for my family for Christmas. On the FIRST use, the 3qt Saute Pan Lid shattered!!!! It ruined the food, scratched the new pan, and caused severe frustration! Upon calling Cuisinart and talking to Ashleigh (A superviser @ cuisinart), I was basically told to pound sand (as in they would not provide a new pot and lid, unless I spent $30-40 to return the damaged product, which was sitting in the garbage with the chilli that was ruined) I was very disapointed in there policy. Seeing as I am still within the 30 days from purchase, I plan on returning the 11 piece set (chilli and all) to kohls and asking for a full refund. I will never purchase cuisinart again!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by stockbridger Don't order this online
I ordered online and had the pots delivered to the house--one of the lids came shattered with glass shards all over the box. In addition, two of the pots looked like they were used with slight irregular spots on the bottom. This makes me nervous--are these pots going to scratch so easily? The scratches were not from the shards as they were in plastic with cardboard linings. The set I got in exchange from the store were intact without scratches, but I am leery. I hope they are worth what I paid for them--needless to say I will be investing in plastic stirring spoons!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CuriousInVA Great pots - handles on lid can get hot
These pots are sturdy and heat evenly. The handles on the pots remain cool even if the contents are boiling. My only issue is that the handle on the lid can get hot and sometimes I need to use a pot holder to move the lid.
I enjoy cooking with these pots and would definitely consider purchasing these again although I would look to see if they sold a set with cool lid handles.
