Rated 5 out of 5Â by SFCooper Lighter Material
I purchased the set as an excuse to give my existing set to my college bound child. When they arrived, I was immediately concerned because they were clearly much lighter (and thinner) than our existing set. In fairness, I had purchased the existing set some 12 years prior for a much higher price and the set contained fewer pieces. There was nothing wrong with my existing set. So, when the new set arrived and was clearly much thinner and lighter, my husband and I took a huge pause in deciding whether to give our college student the new set or old set of pots (keeping in mind that he had never cooked a day in his life).
We took a deep breath and kept the new pots. We were not disappointed. The pots cook well and evenly. However, they are delicate. Do not store them inside one another or you risk scratching the non-stick finish. Also, do not tap (bang) your cooking spoon, spatula, etc. on the side of the pot/pan as you can risk damaging the non-stick finish. Follow the care instructions and you'll truly enjoy cooking in these pots and pans. I like that the have glass tops. However, I've noticed the handles on the new set get hot quickly; so, be sure to use an oven mitt.
