We purchased the Cuisinart 10 Piece Green Gourmet Cookware and it is more than we thought it would be. It has a lifetime warranty and we are very pleased with our purchase. We look forward to using it for many many meals. The finish on the cookware is a brushed nickel and it cooks the food without having anything stick to the surface of the pan.
