Perfect cookware set
December 23, 2016
This is an amazing set. Cooks evenly. No chipping in the coating after heavy use. Do yourself a favor, and used rubber coated or wooden utensils to prevent scratching and hand wash vs the dishwasher. Makes a good buy for yourself and a good gift for others.
Immaculate non-stick surface.
August 21, 2016
I've owned this product for a couple of months now, and so far the non-stick surface has been perfect. everything just slides right out of these pans, and cleanup is incredibly easy. I don't find the thermo-spot as useful as it claims to be, but its an interesting feature.All in all, i'm pleased with this product. Note: DO NOT use metal tools on these. As is the case with all non-stick pots and pans, metal tools will damage and remove the coating, and will ruin your products. So before giving this a bad review because of food sticking, make sure you haven't been using metal tools.
Great pans at a good price
September 29, 2015
Great pans at a good price. When they first arrived I thought they locked a little thin and light buy they head evenly wipe clean and if you stick to three rules you'll have them for years. 1. Don't cook with the heat turned up to high (you don't need to with these pans this is why food will stick) 2.let your pan cool down before you wash it (cold water in a hot pan will warp it out of shape. 3.Hand wash it (waste of power and water putting these pans in the dishwasher any way as most of the cooking grime can be wiped out with a pappers towel then a quick rinse and your done. Great set highly recommend.
I love my new T-fal cookware
May 6, 2015
I love my new T-fal cookware! This cookware was listed at a really good price, so I jumped on it right away during Christmas. I couldn't tell in the picture or in other videos I saw of this product if the bottom of the skillet surfaces were raised or not. I am glad to report that the bottom is completely smooth and NOTHING sticks to it no matter how hard I try! haha! These are fine quality items that I'm sure I will use for many years to come. My previous cookware was purchased 35 years ago or more. It was a high quality stainless steel item that I hated to give up. But it was time and the T-Fal has not been a disappointment in any way. The clear lids are snug and perfect for viewing while cooking. The lid handles are tall and make storage a little more difficult. But I must say that there was a purpose...they are never too hot to pick up. Another really fabulous feature of this set of cookware is the way it stores. I found that I could stack almost every pieces (without the lids) in one position! Who else can say that? In an apartment, storage is limited. So this is another plus I didn't expect to receive. Thank you T-Fal and Amazon!
Yes, yes and yes! Cookware worth geeking out about!
November 16, 2014
First off, anodized is the way to go! Anodized cookware is generally thicker, more durable, transfers heat more evenly, and is more resistant to corrosion than other cookware. Plus it is way easier to clean than stainless steel.
This set is extremely durable, from the handles and the tops to the cookware itself. The handles are not metal, which is very nice compared to some other cookware I've had (which honestly, should just be a standard. Why would you NOT have rubberized handles that won't burn you to the touch?). The glass the tops are made of is very durable and has stood the test of time, use and children (my children unload the dishwasher and things get dropped, a lot). The surfaces themselves are amazing. If you can help it, try to use non-metal utensils on it so it will stay pristine and nonstick for evverrrrrr. I mean really, if you need to, post a sign in your kitchen. :-)
The range in sizes of the pots and pans is very versatile. The smallest little pot is great for making a cup or so of vegetables in a pinch without having to boil 7 gallons of water in a bigger pot. Most of the pans have their own tops, and even the ones that don't you can cover with the tops from the other pots.
I highly recommend this set. It's beautiful, durable, and does its job amazingly well. If it seems to pricy at first, wait for a deal. I waited for a deal, but after receiving them I would have totally paid full-price. They're gorgeous!
Tip: Make sure you wash/scrub the outside surfaces properly once in a while, because the buildup is harder to get off if you allow it to form a thicker layer (from grease spills, etc.) I use a metal scrubber for the outside (not the inside!) and it works wonders.
What are you waiting for? Receiving the box with this set inside will give you those butterflies you've only ever gotten from when your KitchenAid mixer arrived. ;-)

I love these! I am so pleased with this purchase- especially for the price. They also come with a lifetime guarantee, which I found to be very reassuring as to their quality.

September 16, 2017
I love T-fal. I liked that the frypan has a lid which is very important while frying anything with oil. The pans look sturdy, nicely polished and the color is beautiful. I really like cooking with this product. I bought a different package with the same price which was Amazon's best seller but this one is better than that. I returned that and bought this one, I am happy.

Best Household Purchase in 2016 Yet
March 8, 2016
What can I saw that the picture does not already? The color is beautiful they are perfect for cooking anything and everything. My kids actually love for me to cook meals now. I had an earlier set in red, but I've updated my kitchen and I HAD to have this blue. The color pops and makes me want to cook plus I know clean up is an ease. I found this set cheaper than my local stores so that was a double score! Thanks T-Fal and Amazon!!
January 10, 2016
These are really nice! super easy to clean and the color really pops. I don't understand why anyone would put this in the dishwasher it takes less than a minute to clean them. even things like scrambled eggs or oatmeal or chowder seem to come right out when washed with hot water. I've had no problems with the colors shipping or fading or any kind of damage. I use them on a gas stove and I ensure that the flames do not lick up over the side of the pot just like it says in the directions and I hand wash in hot water and there's never been an issue with them at all they are phenomenal.

Very pleased with my T-fal C770SF Hard Anodized Scratch Resistant Nonstick Thermo-Spot Heat Cookware
August 26, 2016
Fantastic set of pots and pans. Love the glass lids with the steam vent. Excellent non stick surface and sturdy construction of pots/pans. Handles are long, fit comfortably in my hand and are attached to sides firmly and I believe will not "wiggle" in future. Excellent price at that time offered for a new unopened box at $125.99, that I believe was $20.00 off listed price. (I see at the time I write this that the set is no longer available as a new in box set but offered as used from another vendor at a much higher price. A full $99.01 higher! I should have bought 2. One for me and one for my sister because I just love her so much.I especially like the saute pan with the high sides that is about 3 inces high. I will be able to cook alot of rice dishes such as Mexican rice in it which I believe will allow the rice to steam a bit fasters instead of using a pot .Also the steam pot with basket is really large and I was actually able to steam whole ears of corn.Two of the pot lids as shown will perform double duty as they also fit the pans pictured without lids.The even heating base really does distribute the heat evenly around the surfaces and the thermo spot indicator in the middle of the pans is a good feature and helps gauge the readiness of the pan. I really like hard anodized pans that in my opinion cook better, last longer and are easier to clean. I use a mild "clay based" cleaner and sponge to clean the outsides and they have retained the finish.If the price becomes available again I would purchase again and give as a gift.*****************************************************************************************3/7/2017: I am adding this comment and removing one star because of the following. I have encountered 2 problems. First, the 11.5 inch pan has warped. The middle of the pan has domed so now food falls to the sides. I bought another 11.5 inch pan from Target and it eventually did the same thing. None of the other pans have warped. Secondly, the 1 quart covered sauce pan gave off an extremely foul oil or chemical smell when I boiled water on high for potatoes on my gas burner. I did not boil the pot dry either. The smell permeated the food in the pot as well. It was absolutely noxious and I had to open the doors and windows. It might have been expected to happen but it was a bad experience. I won't trust that sauce pan now and will make sure to use a medium setting from now on. I don't feel I can fault the pot so much as I probably should have used a lower flame. I boiled water in another pot and didn't have the same experience so who knows, I will just leave this here. I am removing the 1 star based solely on the warped pan. I add the issue of the pot giving off the odor when on high as a word of caution.
What I like about them is that they aren't too heavy
August 1, 2016
I haven't had them too long. My bro in law burnt one of the sauce pans...and left it for me to clean....it seemed to recover from what appeared to be an all out scorch..What I like about them is that they aren't too heavy. The calphalon are too heavy for my wrists...I had them for a long time and I'm happy that the T-fal are so much lighter to work with. Whether they hold up...we shall see...but that is a lot of cookware for 110 bucks...so I'm satisfied.
but the vessels are great..
July 21, 2016
The thermo stat doesn't really indicate the pre-heating ; but the vessels are great ... the set comes with vesels and lids and do not include any waste plastic spatulas ... good one for me .... bought it as a prime day deal so great for the money too
These pans are super. The finish is wonderful
October 10, 2015
These pans are super. The finish is wonderful, the heat dispurses evenly, they even look nice. The only complaint I have is that everything seems to gravitate and stick to the connectors where the handle is. Hate to scratch the finish cleaning this trouble area.
I like them. I like the vented lids
January 14, 2015
I've only had this set a couple of weeks. So far, I like them. I like the vented lids. I hope this set will last as long as my previous T-fal set. At this point my only concern is I have a Gas Stove top. The bottom are already scratched. Hopefully, this will not present a further issue with longevity.
Light weight easy to clean set.
September 7, 2014
This was bought to replace an old set we had. It is light weight making it easier to lift when you have a full pot. I can not say how long it will hold up do to the fact that we have only had the set for a week. I will say that this set comes with a few small pans that I am not sure what anyone would ever use them for.
I love the color
June 27, 2017
My big pot has a dent in the bottom, but I don't have the funds to send it back. However, I love the color. Also, the rings around the lids are not as tight as they should be.
May 18, 2017
April 10, 2017
The cookware itself is great and works well. Only 4 stars because the products were damaged when I received them. Not worth the trouble of sending them back for replacements.
Close, but no cigar!
June 5, 2016
Work great and love the color, although they are significantly darker than photographed, which was a bit disappointing. As for usability, they are great, and love the handles that don't heat up when cooking. The tiny tiny pan is basically useless to me, but makes a cute decoration.
NOT for induction cooktops.
May 2, 2016
I bought these because I needed new pots and pans and I LOVE pink. I read all the Q and As and two of them said these would work with induction. NO, they do NOT. I was hopeful, but disappointed that they were NOT induction. This is the only reason they got four stars from me instead of five. They are lightweight and seem like good quality for the price. The color is beautiful. I am not returning them because I will be moving in a year and will have a regular stovetop. So for now they will stay in the box and I will patiently wait to use them. They are nice pans for a regular cooktop.
They seem flimsy or easy to damage
August 15, 2015
I've had them for a few weeks and they work as described. They seem flimsy or easy to damage. I would recommend for someone going to college and wants a cute kitchen product. Isn't really geared for heavy cooking.

July 13, 2015
The exterior brush finishing comes off very easily and some came off from me putting them away in my cupboard straight out of the box. So, the pots look old even though it's less than a week old. It didn't even come in a retail box. Pots work as advertised and things come off easily.
They all match now. Fun to cook again.
May 25, 2015
I now have a complete set of pans. As soon as I received these I had to try the medium fry pan on not on him, this time. I had a larger pan years ago and it was a heavier pan. I thought this to be a bit lighter than I wanted. That doesn't mean that I don't like them. The burn on the stove are a bit funky. It seemed to always burn food at the center of all the pans. So far the few things cooked have been a little over done. Little learning curve I think. I prefer my cast skillet for frying still. The sauce pans have done wonderful. Easy cleaning for Him. Yeah I let him use them to clean. I shouldn't have any problems cooking from 1 size to another.
Almost, but not quite
September 26, 2014
Nice pots and pans with one glaring flaw... the rivets/bolts that hold the handles are on the inside of the pots and pans, and they tend to get food stuck to them and hard to clean.
September 1, 2017
T-Fal isn't the Best as far as non-stick is concerned however they are look nice but beware they are very easy to ruin.
These are nice. However
June 22, 2017
These are nice. However, after one use the beautiful blue color came off the skillet and one of the sauce pans.
Good and bad
February 3, 2017
I love T-fal pots. I purchase the set before in color red and I have gifted a set before. I was ready for some useful yet cute PINK pots. These are beautiful! However, the reason for the 3 rating is because two of the lids were defective. The lil whole where the steam comes out of is loose. I would ordinally take back to store but since I bought it online and I rarely like to ship things back I will sadly have to keep them as is.
Nice to look at...BUT
December 12, 2016
This set is really nice to look at, but the handles are already loose, making everyday use unsafe as it is a tricky task to remove them from the heat without harm to self. I wanted my pots to use as I love cooking but more often than not.. I find I have to avoid using because of the fear of the handles separating.
A little disappointed. received only 9 pieces
August 18, 2016
Hi the 14 pcs was missing the measurement spoon and never been mentioned. A little disappointed. received only 9 pieces.
October 18, 2015
T-fal is a very respectful company when it comes to pots and pans and their non-stick series is world famous. However although I use some of them every day I was not totally satisfied with the quality of the set. It feels very light compared to the Calphalon series and my pan got dented after three months of use, although I followed all the rules for a non-stick pan. Maybe try and look for something more sturdy.

Worked OK for a Year, Now Food Sticks
October 17, 2016
I bought this set 1 1/2 years ago. For the first year, they were fine, then all of a sudden every skillet lost its nonstick qualities. I haven't put them in the dishwasher, scraped them with anything, used anything abrasive, or done anything to make this happen. I can't even get the stuck-on stuff off so will have to throw them away.
Larger pans warps with use
August 5, 2016
I really liked this set, but after about a years worth of light to moderate use, they are starting to warp. 3 of the largest pans have raised middles. When I pour oil into the pan, the oil runs to the outer ring of the pan. This makes cooking less consistent.Also, the pans are becoming less and less "nonstick".

September 18, 2015
Spent good money on this set and all though I have used as directed only using med high heat, most of the pieces gave warped just like a set for a fraction of the cost.

Disappointed in quality for TFal and that they are not dishwasher safe.
September 28, 2017
I bought this set in march and started using it in may, at first i was so happy with its performance the heat indicator etc. but i have observed that in 4 mos time the non stick area started to wear off. I was very disappointed because i expected more from this brand.
July 24, 2017
These do not have a long life span. worth it to get the better brand. within about 4 months my no stick is peeling off into food, my purple on the putside has turned colors due to just cooking out of it.
March 23, 2017
Not the quality I expected. Will give away to someone who only has limited cooking pans.
October 28, 2016
This pot isn't a circle!
Kids love it. But I do not

The color blue comes as turquoise. Kids love it. But I do not. No difference to any other "overrated" product out there. Just sales tactics. Will not buy again. I can't stand the color that I got.

I just began using this pot and pans. While they cook nicely, despite even being hand washed, the exteriors are now discolored with blotchy and bleached look. I will be returning.
I don't think these are authentic...
July 16, 2016
1. The set does not include the double handled as pictured.2. It does not have any tfal documentation - factory sealed box or care guide.3. Doesn't look like other tfal hard anodized collections I've seen. It seems too light, almost filmsy, and does not match the photo on the tfal website. The base of pots is not the same.Therefore, I question the authenticity of this product and I'm trying to return.

Cheap, thin cookware. Totally not worth the price and definitely not the quality you would find if you bought T-fal in the department store. My set is nice and heavy. This stuff is almost weightless when you pick it up the metal is so thin. Thought I was buying my son and his wife a nice set of T-fal like I have. Happy that I can send it back on Amazon at no cost.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. AFTER 2 MONTHS MY POTS STARTED DISCOLORING. T-FAL MARKET THIS PRODUCT AS THEIR SIGNATURE PRODUCT BUT IT IS VERY CHEAP QUALITY
Consider that T-fal may not be the one we've trusted for so long
June 18, 2014
The product itself appears to be fine. However, after many attempts to reach T-fal itself, through chats, emails, and voice messages, and then patiently trying to work through one of their distributors, both I and the distributor have determined that there is no customer support available from T-Fal. I would recommend anyone considering buying from T-fal consider other companies. We buy these kinds of products with an expectation that a reputable company is still behind them and so we can expect our purchases to have been manufactured with the attention to quality a reputable company would provide. I now wonder about each of the T-fal products I've bought in the past several months.

April 10, 2017
The bottoms of these pans are so abrasive they have ruined my cook top. I've been very careful not to slide the pans on the top however even just picking up and setting down the pans have caused damage.These pans should have a disclaimer that they are not for ceramic cook tops.
