After trying a cheaper set and hating it (wasting the money) we knew we wouldn't do that again. It may cost a little extra to get the **T-Fal **it is definately worth it! The set lasts longer! Not to mention heats the food more evenly! But even more to the point our clean up isn't as frustrating... We don't leave our food on the stove and serve from the stove like some families do! So our pans go directly to the sink! Which I am sure helps alot too! But there isn't he sticking messes!Actually if you want to be technical about it, with the **T-Fal **set lasting longer it really doesn't 'cost' more! It is a cost savings for us!So yes, **T-Fal **for us!

the t-fal cookware set seemed very ideal at first because it was not sticking and cleaned easily with even cooking  however with time the nonstick surface has worn away with just general cleaning and the pans stick terribly even with cooking spray or oil  there are terrible hot spots and there are a lot of items that I would never try to cook in the pans at this point - about 3 yrs after purchase - such as omletes and rice  for the money i do not feel that they have performed as well as the revere wear that i got 15yrs ago as a wedding present.

    Comments about T-Fal Non-Stick Cookware Set:

    bought set for myself, 18-piece. has a little one egg skillet cooker, (cute!) I've been using T-fal for atleast the last 25-30 years and it seems to me that the quality of the product has decreased in the make-up of the utensils. This latest set seems to be the "thinest make of materials" that should they get dropped, it will get "bent" easily! I'm cooking some bean soup and the steam is spilling out under the lid, down the side of the pot and making quite a mess on my stove. I don't recall this happening with my other sets, (I've owned about 5 or 6 set), they probably would have lasted longer, but when others are using and not taking care of them as I do, had to replace them.

          T-Fal cookware works great on my smooth surface rangs.

          By 

          from USA

          Comments about T-Fal Non-Stick Cookware Set:

          I purchased a set of T-Fal cookware solely to have smooth-bottomed pans to use on my new smooth cooktop range. I couldn't be happier with my choice!

          Doesn't Stick
          I seasoned the pans as recommended by T-fal, and they work wonderfully.

          Heat Distribution
          I have no complaints about heat distribution.

          Ease of Handling
          These pans are lightweight yet have adequate "heft" to make them quite easy to handle.

          Ease of Cleaning
          With well-seasoned pans, clean-up is a breeze!

          Design
          No complaints so far on the design of this T-Fall cookware.

          Durability
          My cookware is still new, but it appears to be good quality which should lead to a reasonable life span.

          Comments about T-Fal Non-Stick Cookware Set:

          This set was given to me and my husband as a gift when a family friend upgraded to a stove top that was easily scratched, and I will say, their upgrade was one of the best things that could have happened for our kitchenware collection. Prior to using this T-fal set, we would use off brand "non-stick" pots and pans of various sizes and shapes that would wear down within months of purchase. We received this set used 3 years ago and it is still going strong. We love how even if we get sidetracked from our cooking duties a little too long, we can come back to the pan and know that the food won't be stuck to the bottom.

          Doesn't Stick
          No sticking problems here!

          Heat Distribution
          When we use the large skillet for things like pancakes, some areas will cook faster than others and result in the occasional burnt pancake. But for the most part, I am happy with the heat distribution.

          Ease of Handling
          The variety of sizes that come with the set enable me to have just the right size pot for the dish I want to prepare.

          Ease of Cleaning
          Non-stick is easy to clean because things don't really stick to it, but one downside is you have to be careful how you wash it and what you wash it with so you don't scratch the non-stick surface.

          I use it every day.

          Comments about T-Fal Non-Stick Cookware Set:

          I bought this in April 2012, and still use it every day. It's made in France. It isn't the USA but at least it isn't China. That factored in to my decision to buy it. It's good quality but not excellent. The pans are still intact and still non-stick but I can see that they aren't going to be durable beyond a couple years use. They are already in a well-used state. On two of the pans, the non-stick coating is starting to get worn off, and I should probably throw them away very soon. For the price, they were worth their lifespan but next time I would buy longer lasting (and more expensive) pans.

          Ease of Cleaning
          Very easy to clean greasy or stuck-on food. Just soak less than a minute, and sponge it off.

          Design
          One major flaw with the design in the smallest pan (at least in my set), is that without the lid, the pan will tip over.

          Durability
          Lasts 2 years maximum.

          Love it. My favorite by far.

          Comments about T-Fal Non-Stick Cookware Set:

          They really are non stick. Easy to clean and easy to stack up and put away. I've had my t-fal cooking set for over a year and still looks like new which is unusual for me. I bought a cookie sheet as well. The cookie sheet doesn't flip lopsided from the heat in the oven. I usually throw away my cookie sheets after a year because of rust. My T-fal cookie sheet still looks new. I rated this product a 9 total because I have to tighten the screw handles occasionally. Overall, this product is worth the price you pay for.

          Doesn't Stick
          Nothing sticks, not even cheese when I'm am making my scrambled eggs. Oil and butter is optional when cooking with this T-fal set.

          Heat Distribution
          I have not used the product on a gas stove or grill so I didn't recommend it. This cooking set cooks everything evenly. It heats quite quickly but I believe that is depending on the stove quality.

          Ease of Handling
          The product is very easy to stack and put away. Easy to grip when cooking. It has heat resistant handles.

          Ease of Cleaning
          Everything comes right off with warm water and a sponge. Even if its been sitting dirty for hours. There is no need to shine these.

          Design
          The design is great. I wasn't fan of the glass lids but since the product was on sale I took a risk. I'm completely satisfied. The glass doesn't collect grease and grime like other previous non-T-fal glass lid cooking sets I owned. I've own the set and not once had water stuck in between the lid's handle and glass.

          Durability
          It's been over a year and still looks new. If I would repackage everything you won't be able to tell that it's been used for over a year.

          Nice Set of Cookware

          Comments about T-Fal Non-Stick Cookware Set:

          I purchased a T-Fal Non Stick Cookware set at Thanksgiving time last year and we use it to cook for every meal. It has held up very well and hasn't started flaking nor is it scratched anywhere. You do have to be careful not to use metal spoons to stir your food. I use a plastic spatula.

          I've used many different types of cookware such as stainless steel, Martha Stewart, and Paula Dean cookware and wasn't impressed with the quality. I've had problems with past brands not holding up very long, food sticking and burning, and having to deal with screws coming out of the handles. In the past, I've had to get a new set of cookware yearly but not this year. I'm so impressed with the quality of the cookware that I've already bought another set and put it up for my daughter who will be going to college next year. It heats food evenly and there's no mess to clean up afterwards which means I have more time to spend with my family. I just rinse off the pans and put them in the dishwasher.

          Doesn't Stick
          The food rinses off and wipes off easily.

          Heat Distribution
          Very even heat distribution.

          Ease of Cleaning
          I just rinse it off and put it in the dishwasher.

          Durability
          This is very tough and durable cookware.
