This is an amazing set - it is not non-stick..........matter of fact it is made for browning and searing and that is why I LOVE it. One can use metal utensils with it, and cleansers, etc. It is NOT dishwasher safe - it is similar to cast iron in that it will get an odd white hue to it and then it will need to be seasoned but just an hour or so of soaking and food just wipes right out! They are truly amazing.
These pans heat evenly, are heavy (but not too heavy) and just feel right. You won't go wrong with these and I am very pleased with my purchase.
It cooks as well as advertised and other commentors say, but the clean up was appreciably more work. I know I made the decision to go away from no stick but I was still disappointed that I had to pay the price. Then I discovered that by soaking before washing, the clean up was as easy as no stick. One soak with a time proportional to the mess that I had made and the washing was easy.
I think that I have my lifetime set.
One of the things I've always enjoyed about this equipment is that you generally don't have the problem of sauces burned to the bottom of the pan while not fully cooked at the top. Less stirring is required due to the even heat transfer up the sides of the pots.
I also enjoy the new handles on the lids and pots. They stay cool while cooking. They do warm up, but you can remove the lids without using a pot-holder, unless you are cooking at very high temps for a long time. The pot handles just stay cool. Great design.
So far the hard-anodized finish is nice and easy enough to clean. It isn't really a non-stick finish, but I've found that non-stick finishes tend to wear out faster. I wanted to try hard-anodized hoping for a longer lasting finish. The last set I purchased from them was in 1996 or 1997 and the usefulness of them far out lasted the non-stick finish. Seems like the non-stick finish began to wear out somewhere around 2004 or 2006. I finally decided to retire them to get something new this year, but we were still using them daily.
Seems like less than oh say $35 per year for great equipment is a bargain.
