I have had this set now for 2 years. I cook with them every day and there are virtually no scratches. I have a gas stove and they cook evenly and are very durable. I love the size of these pans. They are a bit heavy but I work around that. I have only used plastic or wooden utensils and I do wash them by hand. They are very easy clean up, if you wash right after use it makes it that much easier but if you don't wash right after use, a little hot water and some soap will clean them right out.

I was very iffy and did a lot of research before I spent this kind of money on a set of pots and pans. I wanted to be sure I would get a set that lasted. I have to say that after 2 years they are still like new. I love to cook in them each time it's like having a new set everyday. I hardly use any oil just a little bit of spray and we are ready to go. I have a family of 5 and do a lot of cooking and not having to worry about things sticking or burning is a huge deal. I am always trying to cook and do other things at the same time and I can't stand over the stove.

I strongly suggest this set. I can't say enough about it. 2 years with no scratches, amazing....

I did a lot of research before purchasing this cookware set from Amazon. Once I unpacked the set after receiving it in the mail, I noticed the 8 qt. stockpot had an unusual powdery coating inside it. I washed the stockpot according to directions, and I discovered that the Teflon coating was worn along part of the bottom of the stockpot. I decided to call the Anolon company directly because Amazon was currently out of the 8 qt. stockpot. The company acknowledged the stockpot was defective; however, they would not replace it. They told me I had to go through Amazon since they were whom I had purchased the set from (so much for their warranty). In addition, I learned that the limited warranty is VERY limited. If anything goes wrong with a pot or lid, you must send it to California at your expense and replacement is at their discretion (quite a long list of restrictions). I would like to add that this cookware set cannot be used past medium heat and the lids do not have holes to vent steam (warning in directions about a vacuum seal being created).

I am in love with this cookware line. The weight is great (that is, very heavy), I've never experienced any "hot-spotting" or other troubles with the cookware itself (and that's even at my new apartment, where the stove is simply awful). Food began turning out better after I purchased these, and I will probably purchase no other brand in the future. I have had the lids fall from my lid rack that is mounted on my wall a distance of 3-4 feet and none have broken, so fear not if glass lids make you nervous- these are well built. My only advice is to hand wash- it will keep the rubber grips from warping and the set looking new for years to come.

I purchased a set of these pans over 5 years ago. Originally I was hesitant about spending so much money on a set of pans, but with a family of 4 they would get used every day so I needed something that was supposed to last. Well, they have withstood the test of time. The one thing people need to realize is that most non stick pans don't like high heat or metal utensils. they also don't like the harsh cleaners that are in dishwasher detergents. So, following the instructions, I never cooked with high heat unless there were liquids in the pan, always used plastic utensils, and never placed them in the dishwasher. Almost every pan is still going strong. There were two pans that discolored over time and items started to stick, but I sent them off and they were replaced under warranty. (after 4 years of use)

I am now divorced and am planning to purchase another set for my own use. The weight of these and their even flat bottoms is a plus on newer glass top induction stoves and they also worked great on the old gas top stove. Clean up was always easy with one of those little cello sponges. I never had to scrape or scrub, though sometimes if you leave the pan sit for a bit you need to soak in some hot water. After the soak, the residue simple rinsed out.

I would recommend these to anyone who needs to cook daily and especially to those who use induction stoves. The thick bottoms are well suited to these types of stoves. -trust me, I had to use some cheap-o thin pans and everything burned easily.

This is a great set, but there were 2 surprises: (1) it isn't dishwasher safe and (2) you can't use high heat. The dishwasher issue isn't a problem because it cleans up very easily by hand. The high heat issue is a problem because I can't sear meat or caramelize. There are two frying pans with the set, but they are pretty much useless. I am going to buy a frying pan that can be used with high heat

We received a set similar to this for our wedding over 11 years ago. About 8 or 9 years later, we noticed that the bottom was flaking on the large saute pan. When I looked at the website, I noticed that in the care instructions it advised not to use non-stick cooking spray (which we had used for one specific recipe). This specific instruction was not included in our original care information. I contacted the company with this issue, as the cookware comes with a 10 year warranty, and they asked us to send back the pan for inspection. Not long afterward (a week or so?) they sent us a brand new saute from this set as a replacement (as I said, our set was purchased years before and had been discontinued). Their responses were always efficient. The cookware is wonderful as well - easy to clean, cooks well - anyone who has cooked at my house and used this cookware has complimented me on it. The pieces that are now over 11 years old have held up quite well. And in a day when many large companies seem to be skimping in the customer service area, it's good to know that Analon stands behind their product and is looking out for their customers. Well worth the investment.

I've had this set of cookware for just a few years now. I was pretty happy with them when I first got them. Now, however, I'm in the process of throwing them ALL away and replacing them with Stainless and Cast Iron cookware. It is completely pointless to buy a cookware set of non-stick. They don't last more than a few years. All the nonstick has worn away, and the coating is coming off and getting into the food we cook. The once non-stick 8" and 10" skillets are the worst. After putting a few TABLESPOONS of butter on these skillets to cook my eggs this morning, the eggs still stuck like crazy to the pans. So, like I said, don't buy a whole set of nonstick cookware. You'll end up buying a whole new set every few years for the rest of your life. Waste of money. Buy a set of stainless and cast iron cookware. I'd recommend All-Clad Stainless and Lodge Logic cast iron. All-Clad is more expensive than Anolon, but it's cheaper in the long run because it will last FOREVER. Same with the Lodge Logic cast iron, it lasts forever, not just a few years. Anolon is lifetime LIMITED warranty. No matter what nonstick cookware you get, the nonstick eventually always wears away, and you're left with a very sticky mess. My suggestion... buy one cheap $20 nonstick skillet that you can replace every few years, not a whole cookware set. You don't need a nonstick saucepan or saute pan or stockpot. Get stainless. I gave these pans 2 stars, only because I was happy with these pans the first year. If I would rate these pans based on how they work now, I would give them 1 or 0 stars.

There was some debate earlier in the reviews - I want to make it clear that these products do, in fact, have a Teflon coating. It is true that they're made of anodized aluminum, and the exterior is pure hard-anodized. The interior, however, is coated with Dupont "Autgraph" Signature Teflon coating. It's supposed to be good coating but it is undoubtedly Teflon.

We received this cookware set as a wedding present. I researched the set well and held several pans before adding the set to my registry. We celebrated our four year wedding anniversary three days ago and the entire set looks like it did the day that we opened the box. They have held up very well, especially considering that my spouse washed them in the dishwasher the first year. The pan bottom has extra material to promote even heating. Cooking in them is a joy and cleanup is easy. If Analon still makes today's set with the same material and tolerances as they did four years ago, I would buy this set again.

I previously had owned a set of Calpholon cookware for several years. However, it began to loose its nonstick surface on a couple of pieces, so I researched Consumer Reports Magazine for a suitable replacement set. Although I did like the Calpholon from the past, I decided to try the Anolon Advanced Nonstick set because it was rated so highly by Consumer Reports. I really do love this cookware and am so glad I decided on this set. Yes, you do need to wash by hand but I had been used to that before with the Calpholon. ( I am convinced that that had helped me to be able to use the Calpholon for as long as I had.) But, the self-stick surface of the Anolon is really something; you barely have to touch the surface to clean the remains of food. Almost everything just rinses away with soap and water.
The only con is that I wish that the 10 piece set would have included a 1 quart pan rather than a 1 1/2 quart pan. But that isn't much of a complaint. Everything else about the set is great!
