Rated 3 out of 5 by Speedyjac1973 Nice......but
Nice set but the 8 quart oval pan warped and now the lid doesn't set on it properly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Acidpoptart Great Set
I purchased this set because of two main reasons. First was because the pots and pans I owned were purchased 1 at at time from when I moved out. I felt it was time to finally purchase a nice set. Second was because I really wanted the pasta pot and large skillet. I have a large family so a large pan is sometimes necessary. Now I love the pasta pot, but I actually found the oval skillet has become my favorite pan. I use it for everything from popping popcorn to making chili. (I don't own a microwave so it is also a great size for heating leftovers.)
Now for the durability, I have been using these now for about 6 months. I cannot speak to being dish washer safe because I have always had washed. That is mainly because while the pan is still hot I can wipe it with a damp cloth and everything cleans right up. So just a quick soapy rinse is all I have ever needed. I have used metal utensils, sometimes just from laziness when heating leftovers...I just stir the food with the same fork I'll be eating with. The inside of the pans are still fine the hold up well from scratching. However, I have a regular metal coil stovetop and the bottom of my pans are scratched. This has not affected the heating at all, but I would never want to store them from a hanging rack because of this.
Heating: These are non-stick so I never put the heat above a medium-high, but I find that the pans still come to a boil quickly and retain their heat. Even the oval pans evenly heat, even though the coils are only in the center of the pan.
These are non-stick pans so they are not going to be something I would expect would last a lifetime, but they are holding up great so far. I would definitely recommend them, and I would even purchase this same set again once my lives out it's lifespan.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzyTCO Best Pots Ever!!
Bravo! These are hands down the best pots I have ever owned or used! The only think I would add is a lid for the larger frying pay and maybe a larger round pot -- the large oval pot can feel a bit unwieldy on my round electric burners and probobly sits better on square gas burners... but for ease of use (my use of oils and butter in the frying pans has lessened quite a bit now!) and ease of cleaning! These pots are very forgiving and they seem seriously almost impossible to scratch!! They are WELL worth the price and honestly you will LOVE especially the small oval pan... I even cook my spaghetti in it!

This set looks great, but it does not do all it states in the description. If you Only Hand Wash you'll probably be okay. The moment I washed in my dishwasher the coating on the skillets started to come off. Very disappointed, I really like the grey put with just a color accent and I do love the pasta pot and the oval fry pan. I wish these were sold "Open Stock" so I could replace the skillet or skillets I wanted.
Rated 5 out of 5 by shay1959 Nice quality
I ordered this cookware set in green and was very pleased when I opened it up and saw the great quality of this set. I used the frying pans immediately, very sturdy and the pot was pretty on the table. I am very glad I purchased this set.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bill8383 problem with the coating
We bought this set about a year ago and were extremely happy until recently. The 3 qt. saucepan now has the coating coming off after normal use.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonimr Good Quality!
Nice product with a good value! I love these pots and pans! They are durable. look good and cooks well. The added colors on the handles just adds an additional touch to the product. The price is a good bargain for such a needed cooking necessity. They are not heavy, cooks evenly, and washes easily. I bought this for my daughter as a housewarming gift and she loves them!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nancy02 Inside Finish on Pans
After two uses of the small skillet, and the covered large pot,, and only using Rachel Ray utensils, some of the finish has come off. Also, even washed by hand. Soooo disappointed as I waited a long time before I spent the money.

I love these pans, they are light weight, but good quality.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopgirl7 Love it!
I love my new Rachael Ray cookware set. Although I wish there was a bigger pan because I have 5 kids and would love to fit more food at once but this set certainly gets the job done I love cooking with them.
Rated 1 out of 5 by oneserious no go
I thought because of who Rachael is and her reputation in the kitchen, I was getting top quality. However nothing is full proof and I would not recommend these pots to anyone not even for free. When I call to the manufacture they told me to send the pieces back. I told them that I am on a fixed income. So I never sent them back nor did anyone contacted me for further assistance.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Partsbucket Very good products.
We have a lot of Rachael's products now & are very pleased with the quality and durability - very good...- Alice Moon.>
