I have been looking for a decent set of pots to replace my old cheapy ones that drove me insane. Time to invest in a nice set. I put them at the very top of my Christmas wish list and got them. They are amazing! Excellent weight, even heating. No more hot spots. The lids are fabulous! They fit nice and snug. First week I had them I burnt rice in the 3 qt pot. I was so upset! I figured I'd ruined my new pans like I have many in the past. Well, one swipe of a paper towel and the burned on gunk just slid off! If you're looking for a great set of pans at an affordable price this is the set for you!
