I replaced my old worn out non-stick cookware with this set and I am glad I did. It took a couple of times to remember that I no longer needed to add oil or butter to my non-stick to cook food. But when I did, it was a joy to cook with again. I also found that I could reduce the temperatures needed to cook with as these pans produced much better heat distribution. My pans preheated quicker, heated more evenly and made cooking so much easier.
They clean up great - no more soaking of pans because food stuck to my non-stick pans. And the self pouring and straining was great - no digging out a strainer to drain foods to put back in the pan/pot to finish preparation. That means less cleanup afterwards.
I really enjoy cooking again. Glad I made these pans my replacements and I would recommend them to anyone - from expert chef to the beginning cook. Great tools always make a job easier.
