bought set for myself, 18-piece. has a little one egg skillet cooker, (cute!) I've been using T-fal for atleast the last 25-30 years and it seems to me that the quality of the product has decreased in the make-up of the utensils. This latest set seems to be the "thinest make of materials" that should they get dropped, it will get "bent" easily! I'm cooking some bean soup and the steam is spilling out under the lid, down the side of the pot and making quite a mess on my stove. I don't recall this happening with my other sets, (I've owned about 5 or 6 set), they probably would have lasted longer, but when others are using and not taking care of them as I do, had to replace them.
