I really liked the the handle the most because its safe to touch. And I also really liked that its effectively non-stick.

I'm disabled, on a budget but love to cook. My gifted Tramintina Non-stick set was sadly on it's last legs. Eventually, no matter how careful one is with Non-stick cookware, it does tend to chip, crack or scratch. Going by the rule that I learned from a few professional chef friends; purchase a cookware set at your max budget to get the most features of what you want and usually need. With thst advice ringing in the back of my mind, I started my search. I really put consideration into reviews, bloggers, report comparisons, etc. so I felt lucky to see this set was in my price range from all that I was reading via the various sources. Rachel's cookware has a very modern look and I love orange, it's my favorite color so of course the bright orange handles caught my attention. (Thet are rubberized sleevees so they offer a nice grip.) I wanted glass lids (Rachel's set are tempered with a metal rim), Non-stick for easy daily use and clean up and be durable to last for as long as possible. (My Tramintina set was at least 10 years old.) To my surprise upon unpacking, the handles are riveted to the pots!! I appreciate this feature because there is no doubt there secure while cooking and carrying. (I hate picking up a pot and it feels like the handle is about to fall off and you have to go find a screwdriver to tighten screws but your in the kitchen not the garage; so you try using a knife and that NEVER works!! LOL) Oh!! Another surprise are the easy pour rims. A feature I didn't think about BUT will now. They are tapered which makes it super easy to pour AND drip free. The set has a very tough, durable nonstick coating, it comes with a wonderful sellection of pot sizes and lids. Upon my first few uses I'm more than seriously satisfied, I'm in love with my purchase!! (*blush*) I have to agree with all the reviewers, bloggers and shoppers who unknowingly assisted in my newest cookware set. Rachel Ray's Hard Anodized set is perfection at a remarkable price point.
My mother gave me this set for Christmas last year. I love this set. It is easy to clean. Now 9 months later and all pieces are holding up quite well. My son put one of the boilers in the dishwasher not knowing that it should be handwashed. It came out ok. The lids are dishwasher safe. But, do not wash the pots in the dishwasher if you want them to last. My rating is 10 points. Doesn't Stick Have never had any burnt or sticking foods. Heat Distribution Cooks well. Ease of Handling Spoons sit in the hole of the handle. Ease of Cleaning Easy to clean. Design Not too hip on the color. Would rather have all black or silver. Durability Even after putting one of the boilers in the dishwasher, it came out ok. But will not do it again!
I absolutely love these pots and pans! My favorite and the one that I end up using everyday for all sorts of things is the saute pan with lid. I love how easy they are to clean! Zero effort no matter what is cooked in them. Heat distribution and holding in the heat after you turn the burner off is excellent. And, they look good. These are the best pans I've ever used!
I love watching Rachael Ray on Food Network, so of course I was excited to try out her cookware. This is why I chose to buy the Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Aluminum Nonstick Cookware set. I have been very pleased with my purchase over the last several years. The pots have really done a good job of standing up to the test of time, without getting a lot of scratches or loosing any of their coating. They also "go" with the rest of her cookware line so it is easy to add other dishes on, without it looking like you have a mish mash of different pots and pans. These pans also work great for a variety of uses from cooking soups and stews to making things like scrambled eggs in the morning. It is also easy to find this cookware set at most stores and I have even found discounts on these products making them relatively inexpensive to purchase (as far as cookware goes). I would highly recommend this product for those interested in purchasing a new cookware set or even to those who just want to add some new pots and pans to their previous sets of dishes.

These are the best pots that I have ever owned and they are worth every single penny of the price. These pots are very convenient and easy to handle; they have nice handles that are very comfortable to grasp. Whenever I cook something, it is very easy to get the food out, even if you leave the pot on the stove overnight. No matter what you cook, expect no trouble when scooping the food out. The pan has a very nice surface as well, with a shiny, stainless finish both inside and outside. No matter what I am cooking, the pots and pans distribute the heat excellently, so say goodbye to unevenly heated meals! his was a great and pleasant surprise when compared to my previous pots and pans, which would sometimes cause uneven heating. After you have cooked your foods, you can be rest assured that the cleaning will be just as good as the cooking phase. All of these pots can be scrubbed off easily, and without scratches as well. I would recommend this set to anyone looking for a quality set of kitchen cookware.
I had an old set of pots and pans that lasted be barely a year after moving into my home. I bought this set about five years ago and love them. They heat very evenly, and the food does not stick. These wash great and everything comes off easily. Mine look like they have been beat up and only have started to scratch this past year. I like the different sizes that are available. There is always a pot to make anything you need. Something small to something big you can find a pot for it. I add a pot to my collection every year. Doesn't Stick Never have a problem with anything sticking. Great to make over easy eggs these pans are great for that. Heat Distribution Heats and cooks evenly, no hot spots. Ease of Handling Not too heavy but they are not flimsy and will last you a long time. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean. Even burnt food comes off very easily. Design Nice pots to set out on your holiday tables. Durability Have had mine for a long time and they still have life left in them.
My husband gave me a set of Rachael Ray Cookware about 4 or 5 years ago for Christmas. It is by far (2nd only to my Macbook Pro) the best gift he's ever given me. I love that nothing sticks to the pan while I'm cooking and that the beautiful glass lids allow me to see the food even when it's covered during preparation. I use these pans to prepare food for my family just about every day and have made just about any dish in them - from fritatas to fried potatoes, chicken, fish, seafood, stir fry, mac & cheese, gravy, jams & jellies, pasta, sauces / gravies / stocks / marinades, rice, beans, you name it, I've probably cooked it in this cookware set. The rubber coated handles stay cool to the touch, another plus, in my opinion. And the glass lids are the most durable glass lids I've ever owned. Trust me, I am a klutz sometimes, and have dropped each of the lids more times than I can count. But, for all the abuse those poor lids receive at my hands, not one of them have ever broken, bent out of shape, cracked or chipped. If my Rachael Ray Cookware set ever gives out and needs to be replaced, I plan to replace it with another set of Rachael Ray Cookware. I highly recommend this set of cookware for anyone who loves to cook and takes their craft seriously. The cookware set is worth every penny you will pay for it.
This set works great for glass top stoves. Does not scratch the surface and heats up well. However, the are not perfectly flat. This makes it hard to cook evenly. When I fry sections of meat I always have to shift the pan around to make sure all pieces cook evenly. Other than that, they are a nice, sturdy, easy to clean set. Doesn't Stick Still have to add some butter or oil. Heat Distribution The large pan is the worse. The smaller pots and pan to okay on this area.
