I received the 5 piece supper club set which includes a 4 quart chef's pan, 5 quart sauteuse with lid, and a 8 quart stockpot with lid. The set does save space, but it needs a lot of vertical space, especially with the 8 quart stockpot. I store my cookware on my kitchen cart, and it's a good fit.

These pans are heavy, and I like the way they cook. The 4 quart chef's pan is my favorite. It's deep enough to fry things in or do a quick stir fry, and it's tops for scrambling eggs. I also like it because it fits nicely on the burner without a lot of overhang which results in hot spots around the center of a pan when it's larger than the burner. That's what happens with the 5 quart sauteuse. The center is always hotter so I don't use it much for frying anything. I use it quite a bit for one pot spaghetti, family size frittata, 40 clove garlic chicken and other one pot or from stovetop to oven type dishes. It performs well when searing a few pieces of meat at a time, and it is good to use when making a sauce that needs to be reduced. The 8 quart has become my go to sous vide pot. I use it a lot when I'm going to sous vide two or three quart size bags of food.

The lids are nice with short handles on the side. They can be tricky to grasp so it's best to turn them so they are away from the handles on the pan when cooking. I guess they are supposed to be stay cool handles on the stovetop as well, but I use my pot holder when taking them off.

I don't use metal utensils very often, but the pots are supposed to safe for metal utensils. The pans are also dishwasher safe. They are oven safe up to 450 degrees. I have only used the 5 quart sauteuse in the oven to finish off a dish. It finished up nicely.

Overall, this is a really nice line of cookware, whether purchased as a set or open stock. They can be used on a variety of cooktops, but not induction. I have been using the set for a few months. It still performs very well, and my eggs don't stick like some nonstick cookware does after a few uses. Another nice thing about this set is it has a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. I still have pieces from the old Calphalon Professional Hard Anodized line that's about 15 years old so if this set is anything like that one, I doubt if I will ever need to use the warranty.

I like the set a lot and it is the best nonstick cookware that I have ever used.
