I was excited about this set the colors were pretty and, well that about covers my reasoning behind wanting it. My husband picked it up as a gift for me, so I fell bad about not liking it, but the quality is just not there. There are two screws that hold the handle to the actual pans and the screws don't elm to be coated with the non-stick stuff so all kinds of food gets stuck to them. It sounds like a little problem but since I don't have a dishwasher, getting the food off is a real pain. Even if I soak the pan for a long time, the stuck on food just doesn't want to come off. I ended up tossing out some of the pieces because I just didn't feel like I could get them clean enough. Heat Distribution The pieces seemed to cook well at first, but that went downhill the longer I used them. Ease of Handling The pieces are light weight, which I really liked, but I've found that the more heavily weighted cookware tends to just be higher quality. Ease of Cleaning Those two screws really ruin this cookware. Design The colors are pretty, but that's about all.
