This cookware set was purchased by me from an online shopping portal website. I received the product for a discount of $20 which was a great deal for me. I love the stainless steel vessels and the entire set is made up of pure steel but it does not have a non stick coating. The best thing about using stainless steel sauce pans is that it is very easy to wash after use and the remains of the food do not stick to the material and hence the stains can be washed away without much effort. The food served in the sauce pans had an excellent taste and it remained hot till it was served. Whether I needed to heat soup or any vegetable, the sauce pans did not bear the smell of the food after being washed. The handle doesn't feel hot while serving food and hence I do not need to hold it with a cloth. I have ordered another cookware set as a gift for my cousin as it will be the best gift I could think of.
