My wife gave me this set for Christmas, 2009. After a year of daily use, I love this cookware. Heats quickly and evenly; retains heat so I can simmer on lowest settings. Great balance, easy to pour from with minimal drips and tough to boot. After a year of daily use and hand washing by two boys, there is not a single ding in the entire set.
