When I was 26 yrs old, my mom brought me these pots for my 1st place. I still have them at the age of 48. I just brought this set for my youngest daughter who is 20 yrs old. I'm sure she'll have hers till she's 50.
We have had this set for about 9 months. Within the first couple of months some of the handles became loose. Now all of them come loose after every use, which means that we have to re-tighten them every time we use them. It's really frustrating. The only reason I gave a rating of 2 stars is because the non-stick feature of this set is very nice. I'm wishing we would have bought the Paula Dean set over these.
I ordered this pan set in red. I received it in black and the first pan I looked at is bent. Now this web site is telling me to go somewhere else to log in again to return it!
