    I just received this cookware set for christmas. I am a mother of two and am still learning to cook. I discovered that I needed a good quality cookware set that does not have teflon. Teflon has had horrible reviews and most of my previous cookware was teflon which just chips and ends up looking terrible anyway. So.... This set is wonderful! I can cook anything and everything in it. i do have one thing about cooking with stainless steel though..... It stains, it sticks and it never looks the same once you've used it once... BUT!!!!!! I have discovered a perfect cleaner for stainless steel cookware that I thought I needed to share with everyone. "Bar Keepers Friend" It's a product like "comet" it's a powder. You wet your stainless steel cookware after you have cooked something and figure out it won't look like new again, but you sprinkle this powder on it, wet a sponge and just gently wipe it in a circle motion, and Wholla!!! Magnifico!! It looks brand new again!!! I'm so happy with this cookware and being able to keep it looking like brand new always!! P.S. This cleaning product "Bar Keepers Friend" costs about $2.90 US dollars. Cheap and wonderful!!!!! and it works!!!

    These pans burned everything i've fried on them. Not enough oil or butter can prevent this. Another down side is they become discolored the first time i used my smaller pans. I am disappointed seeing how much positive reviews on them. Maybe i just have a bad batch.

          I received the 12 pc stainless set as a wedding present. Looking at the pots I thought they would be a great set but NO! The very FIRST time I used the stock pot I found a crack in the lip that extended about 1/8 of an inch down into the inside. For some reason I can't find a name for the company that makes these and I don't know who to contact for a replacement. Anyone that might know contact info for replacement please Help

                Well, the appearance was great, Using it is the worst I ever encountered. Stained first time, and remained stainded, oiled it down after was and it looked better. Gave it a second try today, fried potatoes/onions and the bottom burned instantly. Trying to clean it will probably be impossible. What did I do wrong? I WAS known as being an excellent cook, have been cooking over 40 years! I am totally mortified of these Professional Stainless Steel pans, have the 9.5 and the 12 in. They were expensive also! Would like to know how they are so great for some and so bad for others.

                    We cook every night and use my large fry pan probably at least 5 times a week. The first time I cooked eggs in it, it was delightful, no stick and no scorching. My husband cooked in it and there were burn marks in it that he scrubbed and scrubbed. Unfortunately, the stains are still there. I'm using it tonight and will see if the stains affect the stickiness.

                        I purchased this set to add to my collection and I have to say that Grand Gourmet holds it own when compared to my 10-yr old stainless steel Calphalon pots and pans.

                        It does the job and the silicone handle has not fell apart even when I put items in the stove (up to 350 degrees).

                        For those who have had problems with sticking or cleaning. I wonder what type of heating source is being used. I am accustomed to gas ranges and I understand that electric is very hard to gauge heat (which is why you may have sticking).

                        Also, if you're new to stainless steel (some people love their nonstick, I'm simply not a fan). It could be that your trying to treat your SS as you would a nonstick pan. In my experience, and having grown up solely using stainless steel and cast-iron it's good to make sure your pans are heated well and if needed seasoned (slightly oiled with nonstick spray, butter, olive oil, etc) before you apply your food, this cuts down on sticking.

                        As for the comments about placing my pots and pans int he dishwasher. I have 'never' done that with my $400.00 Calphalon set, and I don't plan on doing that technique with this set. Hand washing my pots and pans is something I grew up with and I plan on continuing to do so. If I have stains I simply use a steel wool pad (I do this with my Calphalon SS and I will do the same to these), or a scratch free scouring pad (for those who are timid) and they look great.

                        So far,I am a fan of Grand Gourmet. For the price and for it's comparative performance to my much more expensive pieces, I would purchase their items again. IT simply needs an owner that is going to treat them as they should be treated and you will have these for a long time.

                          We purchased the Professional set last fall. Within a month or so, the top edge of the stockpot cracked in two places. We took back the set and exchanged it for the same thing. I went to use it the other day to make pasta and the top edge of this one is cracked. Neither of these pots had been dropped or fallen off of the counter. I cannot find the receipt. I am very disappointed in this cookware.

                              I bought this product less than a month ago. When I used butter on the pan to make grilled cheese or organic burgers, the pan would start to yellow wherever what I was cooking did not touch. I could not remove the butter because the pan had absorbed it, and over my uses it blackened.
                              They are absolutely impossible to clean. No matter how long I scrubbed there were still stains left behind. So, I put them in the dishwasher, since they're stainless steel they're dishwasher safe. However, apparently the dishwasher got too hot for one of the pots and it cracked on the side. My dishwasher doesn't get very hot at all and temperatures have to be high to get stainless steel to crack.

                                      I was so excited to get these, as I read the reviews and they sounded great. The first time I used the smallest pan to cook some sausage links, it stained with burn marks. It won't come off even though I have followed the instructions on the card. Do NOT purchase these pans!!!

                                      I cook and use this set almost every day. I was concerned that I wouldn't like them at first, so I boxed up my old pots and pans, but kept them. I haven't needed my old ones since buying this set 3 months ago, so I guess it's time to toss them. One concern I had was cooking fried eggs and having them stick, but once I conquered the change in cooking temperatures,there were no problems with that at all. I also love how easy these are to clean, but I do have some problems with the chicken fryer. Food burns on it sometimes, and I have trouble getting it to clean up. Other than that, the set is great.Oh, I also love the clear lids so I can see how the food is cooking.
