Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

I love the stockpot size. Generous enough for boiling pasta without bubbling over. The saute pan (it looks like a frying pan with straight, high sides) is also a perfect size – the sides are deep enough that you could even do a stir-fry for 2 people in the saute pan without spilling ingredients.
Pans/lids are oven safe up to 400°F
The interior nonstick coating ensures that food doesn’t stick for easy and fast cleaning

What reviewers didn't like

The rubbery handles are only oven safe to 350F. I wish it was at least 400F! If I’m searing chicken and then finishing dish in oven, my usual temperature is 350F, but I’d like a little more wiggle room for temp.
Handles are riveted, making them trickier to clean
Not good to clean in the dishwasher as they will discolor quickly
