First, thank you to all those who left reviews and gave me the confidence to choose the T-Fal Signature Total Non-Stick cookware! I decided to wait a few weeks before reviewing and am now happy to say that this cookware lives up to its billing. Easy care, truly non-stick, beautiful (I bought it in blue-- love it). The surprise was how great the actual cooking experience is. Set your burner to medium or low and it really does heat to the perfect temp for whatever you are cooking. No worry about scorching or burning. Cleaning is a breeze. Not only am I happy with this purchase but I am also planning to buy more pieces.
