Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Lots of pluses, like being made without the use of PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), a known carcinogen. Oven safe to 400F. Twice as hard as stainless steel. Comfortable silicone handles stay cool. Heats food evenly.
Total of 12 color nonstick pan, pots, and other essential pieces. Oven safe up to 400 F. Can be cooking with cheap oil without burning them. Cook food evenly. Comes with other color variations and all look beautiful. Comes with a lifetime warranty.
Food doesn’t stick, even after multiple uses. Dishwasher- and oven-safe. Fun color options. Even heating. Affordable.
Conduct and distribute heat evenly due to the inherent properties of aluminum. Thanks to the nonstick cooking surface, you get okay cooking performance and good food release, while the aluminum ensures no hotspots. The interior and easy wipe enamel porcelain surface ensure that cleaning the set is a breeze. The handles come with silicone sleeves, which reduce the risk of burn hazards in the kitchen.

What reviewers didn't like

While the pans got the job done, they heated up too rapidly, largely due to how lightweight and thin they are. While cooking, I had to closely watch the heat so the onions wouldn’t burn in the marinara, and the rice, too, required closer-than-average attention.

Not dishwasher safe. The large pans are on the heavy side.
Not suitable for using induction cooktop. Relatively expensive.
Scratches easily. Included spatula is flimsy.
The glass dome lids are ill-fitting and allow steam to escape, which is not suitable for steaming or braising recipes. And while the silicone sleeves may help mitigate burn risks, they also lower the oven heat tolerance of the cookware. The dual rivets are susceptible to rust and catch grime and food residue, making them difficult to clean. The pieces are not also induction compatible.
