Comments:

Our youngest son burned up my wifes best skillet so I thought I would surprise her with this set of pans. She loves them and so do I. They are very very well constructed, well ballenced, light yet made for heavy duty cooking. I don't think we could have made a better investment with our money! Thanks Cuisinart!

Upon opening the box, the overall look of the set was stunning. Having given this as a Christmas gift, I was very relieved to see the wonderful reaction it got from the whole family. I quickly found out it is as functional as it is beautiful. The rivited handles allow the grips to stay cool to the touch and the aluminum bottoms make heat distribution even and easy to control. Everyone who cooks in the family raves about them. This has got to be the best mid priced set on the market by far...

BEST USES

Comments:

It is a nice set for someone who enjoys cooking and wants the right tools to do so. I especially love that the steamer pot fits all three of the smaller pots. Would be nice to have glass lids but we already had some from a previous cuisinart set that fit these so I have no complaints. The note about small blemishes is relatively minor. There are a few spots that have begun to show up after using the items only a few times but we have had one skillet from this set for two years, using it frequently, and it looks no worse than the ones we have used only a few times so I know they are durable.

  • Distributes Heat Evenly

CONS

  • Handle Gets Hot

BEST USES

Comments:

I am a pretty heavy-duty cook of all things vegetarian. This set has it all, though I am still holding on to my cast iron skillets, maybe for nostalgic reasons. I find this Cuisinart cookware heats very evenly and is easy to control the rate of browning of onions and such. My only complaint is that the lid handles get hot and I have to use a potholder to lift them.

Comments:

After reviewing other cookware sets and deciding on this set; I am satisfied. I was concerned about the cool grip handles being made of metal and for the most part they do stay cool. There are however a couple instances where they don't stay cool. When boiling water for pasta or using high heat to get things heated quickly (using the boost burner on your stove). Other than that I have been satisfied with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone else looking for a great starter kit.
