I expected these pots to not be the best because of how cheap they were, however I did not expect them to be this bad!! I used them once and the bottoms already burnt and chipped. After being on the stove for less then 5 minutes on low to medium heat I began to hear a crackling sound, it was the bottom if the pot burning and cracking! I truly did not expect a great pot but this was just ridiculous, and of course stupid me already threw away the pots I was replacing so now I'm stuck until I can get new pots again... Do not buy these you are better off buying pots from the dollar store !!!
