The handles on the pots/pans are okay to grab when hot but DON'T grab the lid handles.

I am not sure why the other reviews are complaining about this set. I have had the set for over a year and am very happy with it. Why waste your money at williams sanoma for ridiculously over-priced all clad cookware? This set is basically the generic version of the all clads, and the stainless steel is fine. I have never heard of butter turning steel black or rusting it, and "everything sticks"? Use some oil! Many of the complaints in reviews I have read are a result of user error.

These are decently heavy and have a nice thick bottom. The lips on the sauce pans allow for easy pouring. The lids are glass, so you can see inside while cooking. My friend is a professional chef and uses the same wolfgang puck cafe set in his own home, except his is the older set with the cheaper handles. The handles on this set are a drastic improvement and stay cool on the range.

My only complaint would be the rivets that hold the handle to the pot. They are not stainless and have dents and scratches on them (like I care). I have read other reviews that say they corrode when left overnight with acidic food in them. It seems pretty obvious that this is a bad idea no matter what kind of rivets the pan has. I have soaked these in the sink overnight with dish detergent and water and never had a problem.

Overall this is a great value for how much you get. These are not the top of the line pots and pans but they work perfectly fine for home cooking. The utensils that come with it are a little thin and bendable, but they are all stainless and I guess a nice little bonus. This set comes with a lot for the money. Just because a celebrity chef slaps their name on a product, or it comes from china, doesn't always mean its going to be poorly made.

My wife and I bought Wolfgang Puck's Bistro series a few years ago and were very impressed. So impressed that we bought a smaller Bistro Elite set to round out our cookware inventory.

The Bistro series were made out of true 18/10 stainless steel and one piece, tri-ply bottom, blanks. They were also fairly heavy gauge steel.

Recently she bought this set for a house we are renting in FL. After reading the box I wasn't sure but for $100.00 I figured we could try them.

These are what he calls the Cafe series. They are not 18/10 stainless and will probably corrode without diligent care. They are a much thinner guage of metal. My biggest concern was the bottoms. They are not an integral part of the piece but tack welded on to the finished pot. Also the aluminum disk inside has been reduced to a scant 4mm.

After using them for a month I will say they perform better than expected. They do heat up quickly and evenly so cooking with them is a pleasant experience. They are NOT non-stick but no stainless is. On the down side because they are so thin the handles do get hot very quickly. It's not a big deal as long as you remember to test the handle before grabbing it or use a pot holder. I have had no trouble cleaning them and haven't experienced the staining others have mentioned.

When you consider a similar set from All-Clad would be around $1500.00 I guess they're not a bad deal. Just realize you are not going to get All-Clad quality and durability and you should be happy. I would recommend them for someone who absolutely cannot spend more than $100.00 for a decent assortment of cookware. It you're looking for top quality performance and lifetime durability then look elsewhere.

I don't understand the reviewers who wrote bad reviews. I bought a set of Wolfgang Pucks cookware, I think it was called the Bistro set. It was the 18/10 stainless steel. It is fantastic cookware. I have had my set for ten years or more and it looks like it did the day I bought it. And believe me, I use and abuse it. To the idiot that said the handles get hot. . . D-UH!! Of COURSE THEY GET HOT, IT'S STAINLESS STEEL. USE A POTHOLDER YOU MORON!! And the one that said they used SOS to clean it. That sure was STUPID!! Did you read the instructions? It tells you not to use abrasives like SOS or steel wool. So you did and now it's ruined. Whose fault is that? I have cooked many many meals with this set. I have sauted steaks and roasts in the skillet then popped it in the oven to finish cooking. The cookware gets burnt on sometimes so that it was black. But I would soak it in mild dish soap for 20 minutes or so and it came clean as it was new. People don't read the directions or use common sense and then blame the product. If I'm browning something in the skillet and then put it in the oven, then go to take it out OF COURSE I use a pot holder because I expect the handle to be hot. For gods sake, use common sense or your brain if you have one. I rate this cookware a five because I found it to perform like professional cookware and I am now buying a set for a gift for a friend. Give it a chance, buy one or two single pieces before you plunge into buying the set to try it. If you use them correctly, take care of them and cook like a pro, you will love these pans. Like I said, I've had my set for over ten years and they still shine like new even though they are well used. I do not use abrasives. Remember, they are NOT no stick pans so they won't act like that kind, but if you use butter or oil (or even not if you're browning a piece of meat with fat on it), and take care of them I have no doubt they will last a lifetime.
