Have been a fan of Cuisinart cookware for years- actually remember Julia Child complimenting the design similarly to all-clad- so I bought a couple of pans and have been hooked ever since. This new gen eco-friendly, non-stick set is fabulous. I am a chef so stove top to oven to table is really important and most of us in the field would never have done that with non-stick pans before. I trust the safety of ceramics under oven temps. Anyhow, perfect non stick surface, still has the encapsulated aluminum for best even heating, love the dark color and very happy with the price!
