I've owned more expensive cookware sets, but this moderately priced set from KitchenAid, 12pc, ranks with the best of them. All of my previous cookware were stainless steel or low-end aluminum, so I was not sure what to expect in terms of durability.
This set has exceeded my expectations. The pans are wonderful to cook with, items cook nice and even. The non-stick coating beats anything I've tried before. The lids fit tightly and it is nice to see how things are coming along as you cook. The insulated handles make oven mitts unnecessary. I have problems with my hands, the pans are balanced nicely and do not seem to put any unneccessary pressure on my wrists. I love how light the pans are, even full they are easy to lift and pour from.
One note of caution: The domed lids and upright lid handles mean these pans require a bit more storage space than other sets I've used.
Overall very good product for the price. Nice product that will last a long time.
