This is a lovely set of pans: solidly made, they look good, and they cook well. They actually stack ok-ish in the cupboard (some reviews suggested they don't). The bases are very solid and spread the heat well so they cook well on a low light. The lids are terrific: they fit well, and it's very helpful to be able to see the contents during cooking. The lids are also easy to use for draining after cooking. The handles are comfortable and we have no problem gripping them. Slightly disappointed that one pan got rainbow discolouration on the inside the first time we used it (boiling water for peas) but we can live with that: it doesn't affect the performance at all, and hey, we don't hang the pans on the wall to show off to guests. All in all, a great set of pans at a value-for-money price: recommended.
