I only had one ceramic item prior to this set, a nice large pan / wok. The first time I cooked up some chicken and alfredo in it, I couldn't believe how easy it was to clean. It put every other non stick piece of cookware to shame. I started looking on Amazon for a set to get, and saw this, but the red was out of stock, so I found it in stock at Walmart and ordered it. They shipped it quickly, and it arrived in perfect shape.
The assortment is perfect for me. The sizes of the pieces is varied enough to give me pretty much something to use no matter what I'm making. Each piece is nice and solid, the handles are attached very firmly, and the silicone covering on the lid handles are tight, so when you lift the lids, they don't twist at all. The steam holes in the covers also are very helpful. The cookware I was replacing had a similar setup, but was just non stick, not ceramic. There really is a world of difference between the two. Just like I found the superiority of ceramic knives, now I've also delved fully into the ceramic cookware.
They look great, also. It's not some poor pinkish red, it's a really deep red color, dark, and matches other items in my kitchen. The only downside is for people with glass top stoves, the bottoms of these have bare metal, with patterns etched in them, and some of the edges are sharp. I would not want to use these on any glass stove, for fear of scratching it.
Other than that (since I use gas) I can't find anything to complain about. They're working great and I love how easy it is to cook and clean up with them.
