Rated 5 out of 5 by daf at qvc LOVE THESE PANS SO FAR
I purchased this pan set over a month ago, have used both fry pans many times, also 1 qt, 2 qt, 4 qt salute, and 8 qt a few times, have to say so far not a mistake.
I have destroyed many nonstick fry pans in the past, so I checked into a few areas to see where I was going wrong. I learned I cooked too hot and shortened the life of the past pans quickly, so when I was shopping for a new matched set I did a lot of research. I was down to 2 sets one costing $600 and this set. This set has some great features like glass lids and I just love the 3 qt stock pot, also the shape of the 1 qt and 2 qt make it easy to stir the contents and the 8 qt has low sides.
As for food sticking to the inside rivets,I soak the pan hot soapy water for 5 minutes or so and use a Scrub Daddy and it's gone. As for any other sticking issues there are none, but I alway brush a pan down with an oil that can tolerate high heat and never use spray type oils because they cause build up which will cause sticking issues. The handles do get slightly warm, but not so warm that I have had a problem yet.
This set has a lot of nice features for the buck, they look great, heat evenly on glass top ranges, contains many pieces in the set, and backed by a good company. Don't hesitate this set is a value for the price and I put it up against the biggest name in cookware, and now I have a good set of cookware and $300 to spend on other great kitchen things.

I've had this set for about 2 months now. Non stick seems good BUT the handles on the pans AND on the lids get so hot you must use potholders to touch them.
The other problem is also with the handles.....the attachment on the interior of the pans is not non stick and food adheres to them.....especially eggs. The food is so stuck that my dishwasher cannot remove it even on a heavy cycle. Have to soak or hand wash/scrub. :-(
