My daughter requested this set for Christmas...as she opened it I was apologizing telling her if it was too cheap she can return it and put towards something better. To our surprise, the pots were very solid, nice lids, and all the extras were of good quality. She loves them and the entire set was less than some single pans by "name brand" companies.
I had this set in black for 3 years and they worked great for me. I cooked all the time and am a college student, so they've seen their fair share of battles. I recently moved and now have to buy some new ones as I gave the old ones to some underclassmen of mine. I love them and I'm excited they come in red now.
I just want to clear something up, and it's driving me cray!!
The silver thing is not a colander, but a STEAMER for vegetables and dumplings and the like. It took me a while to figure it out too, but bad reviews on the product because you're using it wrong is just unnecessary.
Other than that, me gusta!
Nice red color. Metal is not as thick as other brands....so this means, no need to cook something with heat up high. Be sure NOT to use metal utensils when cooking so as not to scratch the bottom of the pans. Use the ones that come with the set, plus you can always buy more at a dollar store. Also.....do NOT use a harsh cleaner, like SOS when cleaning the inside/outside of the pans, also to prevent scratches.
I also find that after cooking....like chicken or spaghetti...when you tilt the pan, food glides out
easily onto the plate.
Love this set!
I bought these pots and pans about 3 months ago. I washed them by hand and they are already rusting. At first I thought it was just the enamel rubbing off but I have constant flecks of rust in my water and on my food. I am completely disgusted I would not recommend these for anyone. Also, the utensils that come with it are a very cheap plastic that crack easily and don't do well with heat. I was trying to use a spatula while making breakfast and it melted onto my food.
Honestly, when I first took them out of the box and felt how light the pieces were I was concerned. Every set of cookware I've owned was always so much heavier and now that I've used these I love them! One good tip I can offer is to watch them the first few times you use them to monitor how hot your burners are set. Since they are so lightweight, it doesn't take as long to boil water or heat up the pans, which can save a little time and maybe even energy in the long run. Great set of cookware for the price!!
I don't know why people is giving so good rates to this set! Personally I didn't like it at all, first of all I thought that the pieces were a little bit bigger, but they are not, also when I started to unpack and check the pots, almost all of them were with damages, some of them with small scratches and other ones were like totally beaten on the edges. I know the price sounds great and on the picture looks amazing but definitely I will rather spend bit more and get something better. I went back to return them and I bough some ceramic set for 20 bucks more and those are great! But if you still feeling like buying them, I will recommend to order them to pick up at the store, so you could check the pieces and exchange them right away if there is any damage.
Really good. I love every piece
This set was a great price so I ordered it online. I have been trying to get a red set for my color scheme. The set is very handsome. Unfortunately, the set is very thin so I will have to cook on low heat very carefully.
I recently received the Mainstays 18 piece set, and couldn't believe I received all of that for the price I paid! It was so worth it! The red was beautiful, the non-stick was perfect, and I had many options of pots to use. The only small downside was that the pots are very thin.. Thin meaning one of my pots may have somehow been slightly bent in transport causing the sides to not be perfectly round, but being how thin the pots were, I was able to bend it back into, or as close as I can get to, a circular shape. Otherwise, for the price I can't ask for anything more. I'm so happy with this purchase.
These look really good, but they are def cheap. They are SUPER lightweight and the large pot and large skillet are not as big as i thought they would be. For the price i guess i wasn't expecting top of the line stuff, but just maybe normal sized pans would be nice ;)
I purchased these as a gift because I have a set and they are very attractive and durable.
These pots and pans are so incredibly light. They are very cheap and heat up way too much. I thought I'd be doing myself a favor by saving a hundred dollars, but I ended up ordering the expensive set anyway!
I wanted red and black for this set and it is just what I ordered. They are a great starter, every day set (of course, nonstick is not what restaurants use so they will not last a lifetime). They work well and you get a lot for your money. I would buy this again.
Great Cook set. My girl has made countless meals using these items. She's happy & so is My Stomach....)
Perfect replacment for my 30 year old relics. Very pleased with its looks and makes cooking so much easier.
made with thin metal should be used on low heat nice no stick surface easy clean up
I thought I was going to regret this. But I love them . They clean easily, I don't stress about them and they are cute. I don't think I have one bad comment. Let me know if you find something bad cause I haven't.
I was attracted to the sale price. They look beautiful and I'm please by the assortment of sizes and the utensils that were includes. I was particularly interested in the griddle (which I have not yet used). I was disappointed that they were so lightweight and I'm afraid they may be "cheap" vs. inexpensive.
What a great set! It has the right sizes for everyday cooking and can always be added to down the road. I purchased this set as a surprise house warming gift for my granddaughter and she has already thrown out her old set! She is completely satisfied with her cooking results and easy clean-up. I will be purchasing another set soon for my daughter!
I had purchased the same set a few years ago. The teflon will come off rather easily if you use metal. Decided to go for red this time, love the color.
