Wonderful pans if you know how to take care of them!
on November 19, 2012
This is a versatile set of cookware that works perfect for cooking for 2 people. If you're cooking for more, you might want to get a bigger set.
I cook with these pans on a daily basis, sometimes twice per day. As with any cookware, you have to follow the directions and use common sense.
Update: Have had the set for over 2 years now and still looking new!
-Always preheat your pans before adding food. I put the pan on, add no more than a teaspoon of oil or margarine, turn the electric burner to 4, walk away and do something else for 4 minutes or so, and then the pan's ready to go. DON'T use more oil than this-- this is why some people in previous reviews are getting built up "gunk" on the pans.
-DON'T use high heat, especially if you're cooking with oily food. This will cause build up of grease. The highest I cook with the pan is 6, and that's for frozen items...turn down to 4 when they've thawed.
-DON'T put in dishwasher
-Use silicone spatulas and spoons. They work awesome.
-Cooking eggs: Be patient! If you're making fried eggs, WAIT until the egg has fully cooked before turning it. If you try to do it too early, that's when you get the sticky mess. The same would probably go for meats (I don't cook meat)-- wait for a sear before turning.
The handles do not get hot! If yours do, you probably have the heat on way too high.
