What reviewers didn't like

The surface seems to scratch easily which is probably why plastic and wooden utensils are recommended by the manufacturer. Scrubbing it during cleaning will also damage the surface.
Some people have reported that they can make food stick, but this is partly due to the speed that they heat up and took some off guard!
Since this cookware isn’t non-stick; you will require a little effort to remove stubborn stains.
The pan takes high-maintenance so keeping them on the dishwasher is not a good idea.
The handles can be damaged easily.
One main complaint people have with induction cooktops is the buzzing noise from the cookware rattling onto the cooktop.
The one negative review we read complained about a loud noise coming from the pan when used on an induction stove.
Due to the lack of steam holes and tight-fitting lids, it may be good for slow cooking but sometimes make over-boiling too.
It can potentially come out of the dishwasher damaged.
The only drawback is that, though you can wash this product in a dishwasher, but hand wash is recommended. Because there is a chance of getting those damaged while washing via dish-washer.
The set lacks a steaming basket for the large pot. Another issue is the fact that hot moisture can drip when you remove the lids of the pans because they do not have a lip to catch moisture.
