I needed new pots and pans. The ones that I had were hand me downs from family members when we moved to Portland. As much as I appreciate the jesture, we have been here for two years and lets face it... I needed knew ones.
For my birthday, my husband asked me what I wanted. I told him that all I really wanted was new kitchenware... we were short on money so this is all I really wanted...
My husband took me to the store and let me pick out the set that I wanted and I chose the Mainstay 7-Pice Non-Stick 3-Ply Steel Core Cookware. This came with four pans and three lids. One was a small size saucepan, one medium sauce pan, 1 large pot, and a regular frying pan along with three lids to fit all four pans.
The box says "non-stick" however I find this not to be true with the frying pan. The first meal that we cooked in the pan turned out great but that was the only one. The pan caused our food to stick which made it very hard for us to clean. By the third meal, the bottom of the pan became scratched and black pieces from the pan ended up in our food. Yuck!
I will not reccomend these pans to anyone. In fact, stay as far away from them as possible. Don not spend the $20 for these pans as it is a waste of money.
