I'm happy I bought these when Amazon had them on sale for 180-something dollars. I have a few complaints though; The handles are uncomfortable to hold, and they especially dig into the hand when holding the pans sideways to pour. Also, they are only a few months old and the bottoms already look quite old and discoloured. The bottom of the pans have those bumpy little ridges too, so that makes them harder to clean than pans with a smooth bottom. This set is also missing some very important items if you are cooking for more than 2 people- a larger frying pan, and larger pot for boiling pasta being the main ones.
