My husband surprised me with the purchase of this set. We had been looking off and on for quite some time and never quite got around to buying it. I have only gotten to use it a few times but am delighted with it. When cooking the heat is much more evenly distributed, cleanup is a snap and they are beautiful just sitting on the shelves in my kitchen.
