Rated 5 out of 5 by TexanCook Can't say enough good things I purchased this set upon reading the Cooks Illustrated reviews, where they scored it nearly as high as the All Clad set. I didn't want to dish out many hundreds of dollars for All Clad, but desperately needed a strong cookware set. I ordered the Tramontina 8 piece set and I am IN LOVE. First, those who claim food sticks are not cooking properly. You must must must allow the pan to come up to temperature first. Occasionally, I will have a chicken breast stick a teeny little bit, but it's definitely not a big enough issue to condemn the cookware. You can cook everything perfectly around medium heat. I've never had to increase the heat to high and have not scorched a single thing. The heavy bottom helps retain and evenly distribute heat. Using an electric stovetop, I have found that a thick bottomed pan is a requirement. They also develop a beautiful fond and brown foods gorgeously. I've not encountered any unevenness whatsoever. Simply LOVE this set.My only gripe is that this particular set is a tad on the small side. I almost never use the small skillet, and had to promptly purchase the 12" skillet because the 10" just isn't large enough for 4 chicken breasts. Looking back, I probably should have ordered the slightly larger and more expensive 10-piece set. But really, with this quality, I'm not complaining. The quality for value is absolutely, hands down, the best. I will probably never get an All Clad set, knowing I can get the same quality (or close to it) for a fourth of the cost.So that you understand my level of use: I cook every day, and always from scratch. I am a "foodie." 08/13/2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erilyn Great Cookware for a GREAT price! LOVE LOVE LOVE Tramontina cookware!I decided to make the switch to stainless steel because I was tired of spending $100's on non stick that eventually go bad no matter how well kept they are. This time I wanted to invest my money into something that was going to stay around a lot longer than 3 years!I wanted to get some All Clad pieces however, I just could not justify the expenditure. So, after weeks of extensive research and reading MANY MANY reviews, I decided to try Tramontina. Great choice! I purchased this set as well as the 12" saute and 4qt pot. They are not as heavy as I thought they would be. In fact, my Calphalon non stick with heavier than these are. They heat beautifully, no hot spots at all and clean up is so easy.100% thrilled with this purchase. 02/27/2012
