I got these pots and pans just about a month ago... for 84$-on sale and with a amazon discount coupon and I’m so glad I do. I love them. They are so pretty, the color is vibrant and has little sparkles. I love cooking in them. I’ve had to adjust a little bit in cook times and high/medium/low heat since my food seems to get a lil overcooked if I use the same heat and length of cooking as my previous pots/pans (Tfal) when cooking certain things. Water even boils faster :)
The few negative things I’ve noticed is they are really easy to scratch. I was told this and read it in reviews so initially I only used the spatula that came with it and the rubbery and wood spoons I already had (pictured) but slowly started using other plastic spoons and spatulas. The harder Plastic scratched them up a little bit :( I also have to scrub a little bit harder on the two little screw areas where the handle meets the pan/pot inside the pan. Food gets really stuck on that area, otherwise they clean very easily.
I’m not really sure how the little pans paint chipped. I think there was some food stuck on it and when I wiped it off, the paint came off too :( there is a little chipping of the paint already on the bottom of the pans also, just from using. I try not to scrub to hard when washing as to not scratch them.
****UPDATE**** Loved them...emphasize on the “ed” part. So disappointed. The lid to the medium put shattered!!! So suckish! Scared the crap out of me! Now I have no lid for that pot. And they are a lot more scratched up... I’ve literally only had them for two months. Expected better quality.
The pans are decent, they dont seem to heat up nearly as fast as my old stainless pans on my induction cook top. The nonstick coating works well, I like the fact that they came with lids for the frying pans. When i went to use the large frying pan it was warped, so i ordered a replacement set and the one in the new set is warped also, all the others are slightly domed. So after waiting like nine days, I have to box up two sets and return them and start over.
I have another set of her pans and they are great! They have the same color on the sides of the pan as the bottom, black inside. THESE pans are terrible- 1. They scratch the heck out of our glass top stove. The metal on the bottom scratches a lot. 2. The inside coating is junk. After first use they have scratches on the inside of the coating. I only ever use plastic or wood utensils. I do not recommend they pans at all. So sad.
Would give this a 5 except the rivets inside the pans are not nonstick so foods stick to them and are not easily cleaned. Also the lids all three of the big pans have same size lids that are interchangeable so get 3 large lids however the small skillet has no lid to use would have preferred 2 large and one for small skillet. Another thing is that the spatula included is not that strong couldn't lift hambuger without it bending and buger falling off.
What i did love is the color the light blue is very pretty and upon washing noticed it has a diamond type sparkle in the finish which didn't realize when purchased. Love the small pot and skillet included since I live by myself just the perfect size for me. And like the bigger ones when have to cook for company and family gatherings.
Not sure about durability as only had about a month. My last set of pans used about 7 years.
These are amazing. Since im a poor student and did not want to pay a fortune, I was blessed to have picked these. Nothing sticks to them. Cracking an egg in it and you can just swirl it around. Washing them is so easy as everything just falls off.
