LOVE. Love the color, love how sturdy they are and how easy they are to clean! Matched my kitchen perfectly.
I am curious to see how well they hold up since I haven’t ever had her brand before. I will post another review as time goes by.
But for now I am thrilled with them and how well they cook and most importantly how well they match my beach décor!

2.2 The best review

Got this set for my wife for her birthday. She had wanted a set of stainless steel cookware for years but was afraid to not have ‘non-stick’. We read a bunch of reviews of different sets and decided on this set for the specific pieces that were included and the features it has. We also read how to properly use and care for stainless steel cookware. We have been using them for a few weeks now and LOVE them!

The first thing I tried was an omelette – let the pan heat up first, did the water droplet test, added a little butter, then the eggs… when everything was done the omelette slid right out. We have done lots of other things and everything has cooked nicely.

Cleans up very easily as well. I will say that the ‘Bar Keepers Friend’ cleaner is a necessity though. I clean the pots and pans with normal dish detergent and a sponge which works well, but sometimes there will be slight discoloration or stains as some have mentioned in other reviews. But I just add a little of the Bar Keepers Friend cleaner and it removes the discoloration/stains very easily and also polishes the stainless steel nicely.

3.2 The best review

This was the best deal on the Rachel Ray sets I found comparing to department stores, Walmart, and Kmart. The pots are all good sizes with well fitting lids. Not heavy if you are looking for heavy pots and pans.
I was looking for a lighter set in my favorite colour. The utensils are silicone which is great and the cookie sheet is smaller but a nice addition.

4.2 The best review

CAUTION: Try using about half the heat setting (or less) you would use with other pots. These pots heat up in a hurry and retain their heat way longer after you cut off the burner. In fact, when my dishes are done, I’ve learned to immediately remove the pot from the turned off burner on my glass top stove. Between the residual heat in the stove burner and the stored heat in the stainless steel clad aluminum core in these pots, you can overcook your food if you do not remove it.

I’ve experience no cleaning problems and no staining or discoloring.

This set, plus a few more open purchase items in the line, look really great hanging on my stainless steel. ceiling -mounted pot racks (also purchased through Amazon.

I highly recommend this set. Great wedding gift!

5_T-fal E469SC Tri-ply Stainless Steel Multi-clad Dishwasher Safe Oven Safe Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Silver

5.1 Description

The T-fal Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set provides the pieces essential for day-to-day cooking.

For browning and searing a range of foods, use the 8, 10, and 12-inch fry pans. The small surface area and high, straight sides of the sauce pans are ideal for making sauces, boiling, or reheating.

For stocks or large meals, the dutch oven has a wide bottom surface and generous size. The three-ply construction is both durable and stick resistant, and the aluminum core ensures rapid and even heating.

This 12-piece set includes a 8, 10, and 12-inch Fry Pan, 1.5, 2.5, and 3-quart saucepans with lids, a 6-quart Dutch Oven with lid, and an 3-quart Steamer Insert.

5.2 The best review

I received this a few days ago and it was well packaged in the box. Everything was individually wrapped and the lids were cushioned on the pots with a plastic piece. My favorite part of this set is that it came with the square skillet.
Originally, I didn’t think I would care for/need the spatula and spoons, but after using them, they are actually better than the ones I have because they are less flexible, which I really like.
I have used almost all the various pieces of the set in just the few days that I have had them and they cook very nicely and heat evenly. Not to mention, clean up is very easy since they are non-stick. I think this set will definitely last me a long time.

Ordered this set after looking at several different kinds online. I am extremely happy with the ease of clean up with these pans and so far nothing has stuck to them.
My husband and I both have arthritis and the handles are very comfortable and the pots and pans are a very nice weight!!!
I also LOVE the color of these, we keep our pots and pans out on shelving and these just look beautiful!!

7.2 The best review

These are literally the best pans I have ever used in my life. No matter what I cook, I can clean them in a matter of seconds with just a wash cloth and dish soap.
I have had pans sit in the sink for hours, not soaking in water and I can still wash them immediately.
I have finally learned not to put my pots and pans in the dishwasher. I know this will definitely extend the life. They say that you should lower the heat . If I want to boil water, I set the burner 2-3 notches below high.
I was worried about the circular ridges on the bottom, but they don’t get in the way of cooking or cleaning. I also like to be able to use metal utensils without worrying about scratching.
Best purchase ever!!!!

8.2 The best review

Beautiful and awesome set. The colors are as displayed in the picture. The pots and pans come wrapped and secured to the max, which is kinda annoying for unwrapping but therefor you can be assured it comes in without any scratches or damages. The pots are regular weight (not too light or too heavy) and you can tell they are good quality.

Warmth gets through very quickly so water boils up very quickly. The handles are made out of rubber/ silicone type material which is very comfortable to hold on to and keeps you from burning your fingers.

And in addition they put the same material on top of the lids to pick them up. I love it. Another awesome feature is the cleaning. No scratching and scrubbing (and cursing) necessary because everything comes right off and out. I really love this set and recommend it 100%.

My future kitchen equipment purchases will all be Rachael Ray.

9.2 The best review

I bought this set when we decided to install an induction cooktop. I confess I’m still learning to cook on it, but so far the Duxtop cookware is working very well.

The handle feels good in the hand. The pans are substantial as well as good looking and I’ve been happy with the results using them.

When reading up on induction I was advised to choose European pans as induction has been used in Europe for a long time. I haven’t had a chance to compare the performance to my cast iron yet, but right now I can recommend them without reservation.

To me they’re the perfect compromise between performance and price. They’re reasonably priced and they perform well.

10.2 The best review

I bought these in 2012 (today it’s 2017). I used to have a gas stove that scratched the bottom off. The pictures show the smallest and largest skillet, and the sauce pot. They have been rarely seasoned, dishwasher every other day, regularly used on high heat, and I use metal utensils.

The inside coating is like new, except for the largest skillet. I can still fry an egg and have it slide out, but high temp stuff like chicken will stick a bit.

My biggest complaint is that the handles on some of the pans are slightly loosened. They are rivited they get loose over time and there is no way to fix them.
