My husband and I were gifted with 19 pieces of Cook's Essentials Stainless Steel Cookware only a few weeks ago and we absolutely love it! It doesn't take a long time for it to heat up and when it does it is even heat. The cookware is so easy to clean up because it doesn't stick. The handle never gets hot and it is really a joy cooking with this cookware. The bottom of the pots and pans is just a little weighty, but it is stainless steel and it is worth it for the quality that it is. What an amazing gift! I have a small kitchen but this cookware would be good for small or large since there are quite a few pieces you can add. I would definitely recommend Cook's Essential Stainless Steel Cookware to anyone who enjoys cooking.
