Review after 6 months of every day heavy use
on August 14, 2015
I have ten years of serious restaurant experience. I've been using this set of cookware since January 2015. I bought it knowing I was going to let the copper discolor to the beautiful patina that it is today, and essentially the price you pay is for the copper coating. You could buy an equally durable set of cookware for much cheaper at any restaurant supply store. Bar Keepers friend is my absolute best friend, it gets every little piece out, even around the bolts. It polishes the outside back to the original color should I want it that way. My cookware came with shipping stains, which others have been upset about, but honestly Bar Keepers Friend makes it look exactly like the picture you see. Previous commenters have also suggested not pouring salt into them before the liquid is boiling. I have on occasion, first on accident and later out of spite (because what kind of cookware can't withstand salt) and I just wanted to report that I've never had a single salt-pitting incident. All the lids fit perfectly.
