I started out purchasing this set because my "nonstick" frypans were no longer nonstick. I had purchased another brand for my daughter, and the nonstick inside of the product was great, but when visiting her, I tried to clean the outside and whatever they used on the outside started to come off, and I couldn't clean the outside without scrubbing hard. I told my daughter I would research different brands and get her a different kind. I bought a 12" and 8" Zwiling Tru Clad set for both my daughter and myself. I love these pans. They are truly nonstick, and the outside (stainless steel) and inside clean so easy. They heat up super quick, brown great, ( in fact I can sear meat on a very low setting), and everything just slides right out, something my original set never did, even when new.. I love, love, love these pans. The only problem is they don't have lids, but Zwilling's manufacturer offers the 8" & 10" lids to fit them on their site. The 12" lid is shown, but when I put it in my cart, a pop-up said it wasn't available. I just had to order another 2 sets of 8" & 10" fry pans for my son and other daughter from Chef's,, and I received them the next day because I ordered them very early in the morning. Chef's prices were a little better than J. A. Henkles, the manufacturer.
