Let me begin with the Pros: The size of the dishes is perfect. I was a bit concerned that the largest pot and pan were perhaps too large when i had ordered this set, but the size is perfect for me. The texture and material on the inside of the pots and pans is great, cooking and washing are a breeze if done properly. The ladles are of exceptional sturdiness which was an unexpected surprise. The cons: The outside texture of the pots and pans is my biggest disappointment. You want your new pots and pans to appear new for a while, but it started scratching from the word go. I have the old style stovetop and even though I am very gentle in placing and removing the pots and pans there is inevitably a new scratch everytime! I hate this fact. Also the color of the padding as seen in the picture is not the same bright as it appears here. Its a duller version.
I love this product. I have so far put it from stove to oven and it worked just fine. They worked perfect in the dish washer. I bought them to replace my old cooking set so now this is my primary cooking set which I have used almost everyday for the last 4 months. So far so good, no scratches or dents. However, the spatula and the other spoon are not good quality, they started melting on the first use. Its a great pot set but the utensils wont last too long.
Over all this set is too small. One of the sauce pans is unusable in my home. I have a family of 5 and nothing fits in the smallest pot, not even gravy or corn. The small pot could not hold enough of anything to feed my family. The fry pans have the same problem I can't make a big enough breakfast using them to feed my family. I had to purchase a separate set of larger pans. I am unable to cook my spaghetti sauce using the largest pot, it would only hold 1/2 the size of the batch I make. Which would be pointless to make since my family is so large that wouldn't last more then two meals. Again I had to purchase a separate much larger pot for soups and sauces. The Fry pans to not have any lids that fit. Making it difficult to contain splatter when using them. The coating on this set will come off if you do not use silicon utensils. I would only recommend this set to a home with 1 or 2 people no more than that.
I do not think I would purchase these again. It was very difficult to decide which pots set to purchase as there were so many to choose from. That's why I like shopping at CostCo,...I leave the choice up to the buyers. I was not happy to notice some of the coating coming off one of the pots...not a lot, but I did notice it. Too many choices, not the best one. I would buy Rachael Ray pots again, just not this one. Sorry Amazon!
Firstly first use and the bottom started scratching. Secondly most important it is not stable at all on the stove. I recommend not to buy. It is slippery on the stove and I nearly got burnt, especially when you stirring and the pot is moving. The size is small as well not for a family of 4. But I highly recommend it is very unsafe and unstable on the stove. Please think twice. So expensive not worth it. Won’t recommend this product for sure.
Super disappointing. The pots scratched very easily and the 2 Quart pot was warped so much that the lid didn't fit. Poorly manufactured. Surprising for Rachael Ray quality. Exchanged it for a replacement and the exact same thing happened (actually warping was even worse) with the next set - so returned both for a full refund. Do not recommend.
the 1.9 litre saucepan is out of shape with the result that the lid does not fit. It has been this way since I unpacked the set. The rest of the items are fine. I attempted to find out how to replace the saucepan but all the advice was how to return the whole set. After trying to get the redelivery docket without success after several attempts, I decided it was all too hard and I have kept the set. Obviously, I am not satisfied.
I have always been looking for a good hard anodized aluminium cook ware that are similar and also are easily manageable in terms of both cooking and cleaning/maintenance. This set ticks all the boxes - cost, quality, appearance and maintenance. Great product and affordable.
