My cookware was so old, some of it had began to warp. The only good items I had were my cast iron, and they are so very heavy. I love this T-fal. Not only is it dishwasher safe, but it heats evenly and cooks like a charm. And it is so light weight you would never believe it could go in the dishwasher.
The cookware set is nice but dangerous because while I'm trying to cook the pots slides around while the fire is on which can cause me or someone else to get burned.
Perfect for my son going off to college and in an apartment.
