These stainless steel pans are very nice and they last for a long time. My parents have had their set for at least 10 years. I have had my own for about 6 months and I think they're great. Doesn't Stick I barely ever have anything that sticks to these pans. Ease of Cleaning If anything ever sticks to your pan all you have to do is let the pan soak with a little water in it for a little while and it becomes easy to clean.
