I am an avid home cook, and would have loved to have bought a set of pro cookware, but finances being tight, I set a budget of $80 for my cookware purchase. It took me about a week of reading reviews of many brands,and many different cookware sets on this site, other online sites,and the T FAL website before finally deciding to make this purchase.
The cookware needed to be a full set of pots and pans, including the basic 1 & 2 qt. covered sauce pans, a couple of frying pans, and a 5-6 qt covered stock pot. This set met that requirement plus came with a 10 in griddle and 3 plastic utensils (not a big deal unless most of your cooking utensils are broken, melted, like mine are so for me they did come in handy). The see thru. lids all have a steam release hole handy for preventing boilovers. The stock pot lid also fits on the 10 inch frying pan + the 2 qt saucepan lid fits on the 8 inch frypan. Handy if you ever need it. The interior and exterior arebothnnstick. The set is very easy to keep everything cleaned up. The frying pans and griddle have "THERMOSPOT" technology, which turns red when the pans are properly pre-heated, handy if you are a novice or impatient like I am! It keeps you from making soggy oily food. I think its actually helping my cooking to achieve its full potential. No joke!
The cookware looks nice and contemporary. The handles are double riveted for strength. The cookware so i seems pretty sturdy and durable for the price. If possible I'll follow up after longer use. The non stick interior is what T Fal calls "EXPERT" grade NONSTICK interior which I believe 2n upgrade from the basic nonstick material. It is supposed to be dishwasher safe, however, I will not be taking advantage of that. I feel this cookware, if treated right, (I.e. no dishwasher, no metal utensils) ( it also claims to be metal utensil safe) can and should last for many years.
As for ordering on Walmart.com, ordering, payment, and shipping, was super easy, I ordered this on my smartphone, used a Walmart Gift Card as payment, also super simple! The shipping was painless also, as this set had included "home free shipping" free shipping. I ordered my set on a Monday, it was processed and sent to me via Fed Ex and it arrived on Saturday, 6 days later. It was well packed by the factory, each piece wrapped in plastic, uu cushioned by cardboard for damage free shipping. It arrived packed inside a plain shipping box, and Fed Ex handled it well, it arrived completely undamaged.
I'm really happy with the set. It works out really well cooking for 2 people, and more Im sure. If you you need inexpensive yet durable cookware, then this is one to consider.
