I bought this item together with a set of saucepans, and the milkpan is just as good as the main set... These are absolutely excellent. Having used various Analon types for ten years or more, I thought I knew what a nice set of pans are like but the Circulon ones are so much better that the Analon are quite awful in comparison. The weight, balance and style is well judged. The lids fit perfectly - where the Analon pans leaked, these do not - and don't get too hot to hold. I don't miss the see-through glass lids at all, why would you if they fit properly and don't boil over? Pouring is simple, left or right handed, with a neat lip all the way round each pan. The quality of the not-stick surface is superb too, again far better than anything else I've tried. The pans also stack more neatly (to a lower height) than the Analon set they're replacing. Because they hold the heat so well and evenly, you really can cook at a slightly lower temperature than with other cheaper alternatives - my cooking results have improved and there's fewer splashes and mess to clean up afterwards. These are genuinely worth every penny and I only wish I'd bought them years ago.
Update after 4 months of regular use: still found absolutely no flaws with these at all, very happy with the purchase.
