August 25, 2017
It is hard to believe how much I love this utensil set. For most of my life I've used either plastic, silicone or wood utensils in order to preserve the nonstick coating of my pots and pans (not that that worked out very well). Not surprisingly, none of these worked all that well except for the very thin silicone turner.
Initially, I was a bit worried about the handle design, but that went away quickly. I like the balance and I already find myself reaching for these in preference to my other utensils. They feel good in the hand, the balance gives you great control, and they are pretty and shiny. Highly recommended!
Durable, as pictured, with no regrets
July 8, 2016
These proved a worthy upgrade to my kitchen, and over the past 9 months I haven't had a single issue with them. I love the style, they function perfectly, with great durability, and I can't think of a single complaint to be made against this product. None of them have been bent or otherwise damaged, and they all lived up to my expectations in terms of appearance.
If you like the look, go for it.
A tremendous value on a mid-grade utensil set
July 2, 2014
When I read some concerns about thickness, I was reluctant to order them. They're far thicker than I anticipated. No, they don't have "high school cafeteria" heft, but they're thicker than the metal on most non-commercial kitchen utensils. Characterizing them as mid-grade commercial would be about right.
They feel good. They're a tiny bit rough where they were cut from stamped metal and the "finish" on them is probably a 7 out of 10, but I paid about $10 for them. I went to a large box retailer and utensils like these, perhaps a little thinner, start off at $5 each. This is a spectacular bargain. And they look good in the utensil jar that sits on the counter next to the stove. Very pleased with this purchase. I'd say you get more than your money's worth with this purchase. Weary of nylon and plastic melting on my other utensils, I propped these up with a set of bamboo utensils for non-stick cookware. I have no complaints.
excellent set for the price
September 6, 2012
True, these utensils are probably not as heavy as a more expensive stainless steel set, but they are certainly durable enough and a welcome alternative to the plastic sets typically in the same price range. I took a gamble on ordering these after reading a couple of the negative reviews. Given some of the negative reviews, I half expected them to be hardly heavier than aluminum foil, but this is far from the case. This set will last you a long time. I am very pleased with these utensils and would recommend them to anyone who has been wanting to switch from the cheap and likely toxic plastic sets but can't afford the $10 per stainless steel utensil you typically see them for.
Well made tools
August 9, 2012
Good stainless steel! No rust no matter how many times it goes thru the dishwasher.
Tools are well sized for most pans.
May 21, 2017
We've been searching for a really good set of non stick cookware that would survive the dishwasher. What can I say, we work, we don't live close to our workplaces, and cooking is difficult enough as it is. Therefore, we need to be able to use the dishwasher to help us. What's more, we have well water. I'm not going to say this set washes up perfectly, because it doesn't. Again, I have well water, so the dishwasher does leave behind some water spots. They are easily wiped out with a cloth. These are things I can live with for the convenience. As far as cooking goes, this set has been flawless.
Passed my tests and are truly non-stick.
May 17, 2017
I used scrambled eggs as my test for how "nonstick" these truly are and I was not disappointed. With my previous ceramic set of pots and pans they required non stick spray and still there'd be eggs stuck to the pan. Well, this time, I barely had anything to clean. I haven't used every piece yet as I got the big set, but so far what I have used has been great. They are lightweight and as such require less heat to get warm, this means they heat up faster, so you can start your cooking quickly. I haven't tested out the dishwasher safe part, but I don't use a dishwasher on anything, so that's the only reason. I would definitely recommend these to others.
This is what these pans are like aftrr 5 years of everyday use
May 13, 2017
I bought these in 2012 (today it's 2017). I used to have a gas stove that scratched the bottom off. The pictures show the smallest and largest skillet, and the sauce pot. They have been rarely seasoned, dishwasher every other day, regularly used on high heat, and I use metal utensils.
The inside coating is like new, except for the largest skillet. I can still fry an egg and have it slide out, but high temp stuff like chicken will stick a bit.
My biggest complaint is that the handles on some of the pans are slightly loosened. They are rivited they get loose over time and there is no way to fix them.
One Year Review (Five Member Family)
July 21, 2015
Our usage conditions:
- Family of five (5)
- Heavy usage of large saucepan and large pot
- Hand-wash for all pans/lids (we don't have a washer anyway)
- Use pots and pans 2-3 times per week
- Types of food cooked (a few examples):
- Salmon, Trout, (fishes)
- Vegetables (frozen and fresh)
- Ground beef
- Frozen meals (such as Voila)
- Ground beef
T-fal claims vs. our experiences:
- "The unique T-fal thermo-spot heat indicator shows when T-fal pan is perfectly preheated to seal in the flavor of your food"
In our experience, the heat indicator only shows clearly with *very* high temperatures. At normal temperatures, the indicator is only barely visible.
-"TechnoResist Anti-Warp base provides outstanding warp resistance and even heat distribution for optimal cooking results"
We haven't seen ANY warping of the pans, although the large pot lid has warped slightly (possibly during cooling or cleaning) and still fits on pots.
-"Riveted silicone handles"
The handles are great! They are very comfortable to use, easy to clean, and have zero heat-transference (we don't worry about burning our hands, even without pot holders)
-"oven safe to 350-degree f"
Can't vouch for this, never tried. I wouldn't be surprised if this were true.
-"The revolutionary exterior coating allows daily dishwasher use while maintaining T-fal Ultimate’s hard anodized satin grey appearance"
After one+ year of use, we haven't seen ANY dulling of either the interior or exterior of the pots or pans. The non-stick interior is amazing for two reasons: a) You don't have to use non-stick spray (and SHOULDN'T because it will ruin the surface) and b) Cleaning is extremely easy, even for hardened food (like spaghetti sauce). The exterior is also non-stick which means that cleaning the outsides is just as easy.
TL;DR: This set lives up to T-fal's claims and works/looks just as well after a year of regular use as the day we received it. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cooking set for any reason (new family, replacement, additional cookware).
Four Star Reviews:
Pleased overall with these stainless steel kitchen implements
September 15, 2016
Reasonably priced for a wide selection of kitchen tools. They're much cheaper on Amazon than in brick and mortar stores in my area, and they've stood up to repeated, everyday use for over 6 months now. They're lighter weight than some of my other kitchen implements of similar size, probably due to being thinner overall, and with rough usage the stems of the handles bend where they narrow. So far, they've flexed rather than bending, and returned to their original shape after the pressure was off the handle. I'm pleased overall with this buy.
A really nice affordable set of stainless steel utensils.
May 2, 2016
These days, I try to purchase glass or stainless steel when it comes to items that touch our food or drink. Plastics leach toxic chemicals. It seems everyone has health issues anymore and I want to opt out of the system that produces so many sick people. Every once in awhile I will find a quality utensil that I love and I purchase it immediately if I can. In the meantime, I have a couple of sets of stainless steel utensils that get the job done. I purchased the Amco Stainless Steel 5 Piece Utensil Set because it contained cooking utensils I used every day and frankly, they were offered at a really good price for the set. I am glad I got them and I use them every day. They are a bit flimsy, but I have stronger utensils I use when I need them.
WHAT IS IN THE BOX: 1 dishwasher safe set of 5 utensils including a ladle, a solid spoon, a slotted spoon, a spatula (slotted turner) and a skimmer made from stainless steel.
WHAT I LIKE: Stainless steel is a safe metal for utensils. It doesn’t leach harmful chemicals like plastic and it cleans easily. These utensils are dishwasher safe.
This set contains the utensils I use most often. I already own most of these things, but now when my other utensils are waiting in the dishwasher, this set provides me with a back up.
These 5 utensils are offered at a very reasonable price. I got 5 utensils for the price I typically pay for 1.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE: These utensils are pretty light weight. They definitely won’t hold up to any heavy work in the kitchen. But I purchased them as a back up and I already own stronger tools for heavier jobs.
PICTURES: I am including pictures of the spoon from this set in my hand. One is top down and shows where the handle narrows. The other is from the side to show the narrowness of the spoon itself.
I purchased the Amco Stainless Steel 5 Piece Utensil Set at full price and have undertaken this review of my own accord. This is a decent starter set, perfect for light weight duty in the kitchen and great for the price.
Great pieces at an affordable price!
November 27, 2015
I have been using these for a couple of months now and they are pretty great utensils. They are easy to handwash and they're dishwasher safe too. I would have given them 5 stars if it weren't for the fact that 2 of the pieces have slightly rough edges on the handle portion of the utensils. It's not sharp or anything, just a little rough. If you're looking to replace old utensils without spending a ton of money, or if you're just starting out in a new place, I would definitely recommend these!
A must buy at the $10 price point.
January 29, 2015
I was skeptical as to what a $10 set of Stainless Steel utensils would get me. I anticipated the worst, but came away quite happy. Let's be honest; you do get what you pay for to a degree. The handles are flat and not ergonomic. The thin shape does mean that the heat will transfer to the handle a bit quicker than some might like; don't leave these in a boiling bot or heated skillet because you might burn yourself on the handle.
That aside, this is fantastic value. The tools themselves feel very sturdy. The variety of utensils is great; I find it hard to find a $10 set that includes a skimmer. I found the ring that attaches them all together to be fairly useless, but I like that the handles have an opening so they can be hung from hooks.
If you are worried that these will fall apart have no fear. These are well made stainless steel utensils. If you need more features like ergonomic handles this set will probably disappoint.
Overall this is a 4 star product, but at a 5 star value.
Nice Utensil Set
December 26, 2012
I wasn't sure what the quality of these utensils were going to be, because of the price. I bought these as a gift, and was happy when I opened the package and felt them for myself. They are somewhat thin, but much better than the big box store quality. I would purchase these again.
Great quality. Does not stick. The pots are a little too small
April 26, 2017
I bought this product about a month go. I really only use the large pot and the large frying pan, since I cook in larger portions. This is a great set for an individual or a couple, but I would not recommend it for a family of 3 or more, since the other pots are so small. The quality is great. It does not stick one bit. I guess we'll find out how durable they are in a couple of years, but they seem to be doing good so far. The handle on the lids are too large though, which make them hard to fit in the refrigerator or cabinets.
So far they have been great. Although they are not non stick
March 17, 2017
I had been wanting new pots and pans for a while. I do cook a lot,so they needed to be durable. So far they have been great. Although they are not non stick, they clean up easily. The heat seems evenly divided throughout the pan, they brown things nicely without burning. the only negative was that when they first came, there was a sticker on the bottom of each pan which was very difficult to peel off,even with a razor blade. I finally just put them all in the dishwasher and afterwards it was a lot easier to get the sticker off.
My review after 1 year of use.
March 14, 2017
Hello folks. I have been meaning to write a review about this product because when I saw some convincing reviews that this is a horrible product and showed pictures of how bad they were I almost did not buy them. It was the tone of the review though that had me think otherwise like maybe they were a competitor trying to steer me away. I also waited a year to write this review. so you can see what moderate use looks like. My interpretation of moderate is 6-10 times a week. the pots and/or pans get used. My wife and I both work so we normally cook enough on the weekends to so we have leftovers during the week. I have a gas range with the iron grates so these guys have no love on their bottoms.We REALLY like this set. They are very light which is good but it is also something to be mindful of since it can easily go sliding on the stove top. After a few uses your mind adjusts so it does not happen very often. Each item is well balanced and the handle never gets hot to the touch. Unless you put them in the oven then you should use a oven mitt etc… Just like anything else you would use in the oven. They are very easy to clean. We do not put them in the dishwasher though. Being non-stick makes clean up a breeze! We use all types of utensils plastic and metal and we had our first little nick in the finish which I will point out in the photo. We have used it about a dozen times after that and it has not flaked or any change so I am not concerned about it. No issues with the lids. They are all still in perfect working order.It is not perfect though. The biggest lid fits the biggest (10.25”) fry pan but the middle lid (8”) only fits the biggest pot and sauté pan but not the fry pan. it is annoying. 1st world problems, right? The rivets are not non-stick. those can take some work getting clean. Eggs in particular are a nuisance. Those are my gripes. that's it..I take that back. My last gripe is the site page itself. They are reusing some pictures that do not reflect the T-Fal Titanium line. The best way to tell if you are buying the Titanium is that the base of the pan/pot will say titanium and the rivets will also be coated. That’s right folks they fixed my gripe in the titanium. I have the hard-anodized non-titanium version. I also have a 5-quart titanium sauté pan and the rivets are coated. That pan is perfect in my humble opinion just too big for normal everyday use.The photos are as of 3-14-2017. I only took pictures of the most used items the two fry pans and a pot. All others are in even better shape! Hope my review helps with your decision. Why is my non-titanium review in a titanium product page? I do not know. When I went to past orders and clicked on it this is where it directed me to. Honestly though.. If I had the titanium line. it would be 5 stars.
I absolutely love this set of pans
August 10, 2015
I absolutely love this set of pans. By following recommendations, I have not had anything stick and my meals have cooked perfectly! I did have a lid break during delivery so the glass lids should be handled with care. UPDATE: I contacted T-Fal about my lid issue. Not only did T-Fal replace my lid, they sent a new set of pots and pans. Very few companies have great customer care. T-Fal is fabulous and goes above and beyond to ensure your happiness! I will always be a T-fal customer!!!
WOW Great set of pots and pans! Eggs get stuck somewhat I guess I will use a little oil!
August 2, 2013
This is actually a nice set! These can continue to be a great set of pots and pans if you maintain them. My last non stick pans stop being non stick within a month because I didnt know how to keep them from becoming non stick. After doing research on how to keep your pans to continue being non stick and looking brand new I can see the difference and it is working on these pots and pans. TIPS to keep your pots and pans continuing to be non stick and looking new:1.) DO NOT use non stick sprays2.) DO NOT use scratch pads to wash the pans3.) Dry pots and pans immediately after washing do not air dry.4.) Highly recommended NOT to use dishwasher even though it states you can use dishwasher.PROS:Easy to clean! Good non stick pans in which no foods stick to the pan except egg that gets stuck somewhat.CONS: No lids for the pan, I like to cover my food at the end of cooking to ensure the heat stays inside the food and to also make sure nothing falls in the pan when I am away from it. Also I use to own a non stick pan from a different brand in which I would crack an egg in it and it would easily move around in the pan without oiling the pan. In these pan it seems I would crack an egg in it and the egg would stick in one place without the use of grease in which I would have to use effort to try to get the egg from becoming stuck from the pan. Even though I would have some egg stuck to this pan at the end of cooking it is easily removed when I wash them. All other foods used in these pans are absolutely great such as meats , pancakes, and vegetables in which they never stick.
Great Value Set
August 9, 2012
I have been using this set for 2 months now and I'm coming from a Calphalon Teflon set. Of course, coming from teflon I was paranoid about the sticking and cleaning when using this set. I have not experienced any major sticking that warranted such a paranoia. The set does not stick that bad at all and clean up is actually EASIER than my old Teflon set. I just let water sit in the pan while we eat and afterwards it cleans right up! There were some reviews that stated the set was light, flimsy and just felt cheap. I must say, I had the same thoughts after I got over the initial excitement of how shiny and beautiful they are. The thinness of the pans do not affect the performance, these pans heat up fast! I have not experienced a handle that was too hot as other have stated in the reviews. If you get the pan too hot they will discolor, I question why anyone needs to turn their stove up past 7 with these. I have not experienced any lasting discoloration, I have read that barmaids friends takes care of it. The pans are also a little bit tipsy from the handle weighing more than an empty pot without a lid, this is not a problem for me, I don't leave pots laying around empty. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend for someone looking for a set in this price range.
Three Star Reviews:

Sort of thin and cheap feeling.
Average grade utensils
September 25, 2014
Decent products for the price. However, I don't anticipate a long life from these utensils. I have used them a few times and you have to hold them just above the spoon/spatula area on the handle or they bend when breaking up food. It is not a severe bend, but enough to be dangerous when dealing with hot foods. These are better suited for simple stirring, flipping, and ladling. If you cook a lot of semi-frozen foods or like to break food items into smaller pieces while cooking, this is not what you're looking for. However, they are quite suitable for other purposes.
It's cheap crap, poorly made in India
September 23, 2014
It's cheap crap, poorly made in India. But you expected that when you ordered this set didn't you? These aren't well made stainless steel utensils. These are stamped steel with the edges barely smoothed to take the razor edges off from the stamping process. They are uneven, the finish is nowhere near as bright, smooth or shiny as pictured. They are a good value for the cost and very serviceable. This is the kind of stuff you might expect to see in a low to mid range restaurant kitchen. These are not chef's utensils. Don't expect something very high quality and you'll be satisfied with your purchase.
Poor Utensil Set
September 17, 2014
The material of the stainless steel utensil set was not as I thought it would be. The quality is poor compared to the described picture, originally I purchased them for a show piece in my kitchen, but I was very disappointed when the set arrived to my home. The price of the utensil set was a great bargain as a set, but the set appeared to be in poor quality, fragile and breakable.
Good quality for the money
May 14, 2014
I bought this set for the strainer to lift small items from boiling water or hot oil, the others will be camping or other utility use.
Made in India, medium to light weight material not made for pressing burgers or bearing down on a grill/griddle to lift up stuck items, but not as cheap as some of the grocery store utensils I've seen either.
The spatulas flex some when in use (supports a pound and a half jar with ease), and i doubt I will use them for anything that heavy anyway. The spoons and ladle I think would hold up to most things being stirred/scooped, just not lifting out a roast or whole chicken or the like.
If you prefer top shelf, this isn't likely to satisfy you, however if you want an extra set for light to medium use or maybe a cheap dorm set you can afford to leave behind. This definitely fits the bill
The weight of the frying pans are good and they are the only two pans with the ...
October 19, 2016
I bought this set because I had purchased a smaller frying pan that worked well. The weight of the frying pans are good and they are the only two pans with the red dot, the sauce pans are lighter (they don't show the insides of the sauce pans to note that they don't have the red dot). The sauce pans are OK and serve their purpose, but I wish they had a little more heft to them.
Coating comes off
December 12, 2015
Pretty good pans but I worry about the health effects of ingesting the nonstick coating. I've had this set for about a year and the coating is rubbing off, even though I only ever use plastic or silicone spatulas. See picture.
Nice enough pot set but compatibility with other cookware is poor.
August 13, 2015
The prior version of this pot set was excellent.This version has an angled sidewall design. The top openings are larger. Seems like a small issue but:– My double boiler and steamer inserts don’t fit on these pots (they fall in.)– The tops don’t fit on my other cookware.Nice enough cookware but compatibility with other cookware is poor.Update:The decorative copper ring in the handle will take every opportunity to burn your hand.
Not bad, not amazing
December 29, 2014
I was very excited for these but have been a little disappointed with use.PROs:AttractiveHeats eventlyTight-fitting glass lidsNice variety for the priceIncludes high quality serving spoon and spatulaLiquid measurement marks inside potsCONs:No lids for either skillet (the lids for the pots sort of work, but not a good fit)Bottom discolors easily with higher tempsHandles can get hot (only with extended cooking, usually fine)Largest skillet isn't that largeThis set could really use a large skillet with straight sides a lid to make this a much better set. The skillet included is just a bit too small with no lid to fit and doesn't cut it.I have also been careful to not use too high of temperatures with these, as it instructs, and still the bottoms of my pans tend to discolor. I do have a gas stove, so that may be why. It's unsightly, but doesn't seem to ruin the integrity of the pan.Also with all steel pans, if you burn something to the pan, it won't want to come off with out a LOT of elbow grease. Soak, scrub, repeat.
After using them the pans always have a burn brownish color to them. I have to really scrub them to get them clean.
September 4, 2014
I like these. The first time I cooked scrambled eggs in the frying pan, the eggs ended up with a little brown in them, like they burned. I also noticed that they seem to get a cook burn mark on them every time I use them, making me have to work hard to clean them. Not as easy to clean as I would have hoped. Other people ranted and raved about this set. Hoping they get better, but so far it hasn't been my favorite set. Guess there are lemons in everything and I could have got the lemon of the pan set.
April 10, 2014
I wanted to get some very nice looking kitchen ware so I went with flat out stainless. They are very well made and have some good weight to them so they have a solid feel. When I use them to cook they seem to cook everything evenly so I have no complains there. My cons on this product is that food sticks very easily to them so I'm using olive oil or vegetable oil every time I'm using the pans to cook. I was just so used to non stick pans that I had to get used to these. Even the PAM spray wouldn't work. Anyway, I'm not a super cook but I do fine. Beware if you burn anything on these, They will be a bitch to remove whats left burnt on them and permanently damage the product slightly, so don't ever cook on the HI setting with these. After cooking with these a few times, I've also noticed the copper color on the bottom of the pans start to dull in color. So that's kind of a bummer. the clear covers for the pans fit and work well with this set. And the spoon and spatula thingy are well made and durable.
Two Star Reviews:
November 20, 2016
good quality metal. all handles are the size of cooking utensils but only the spoon has a normal size head. the slotted spoon has a small square head the spatula has small head with an upward curve like a server. the skimmer has a straight handle not curved for dipping. the ladle has a straight handle not curved for dipping and a small head. odd. seems like they were made by someone not familiar with USA cookware.
Rust forms on edges after 1st wash - beware.
May 25, 2016
They're cheap, as expected. punched sheet metal. I was expecting average - which I was willing to go with. However, when the sides and inside edges of the punched holes rusted after the first wash, I realized these are below average. I don't want rust in my food, and I'm not about to scrub the rust off the inside of slotted spoon holes with green scrubbies every time I use them. If you get these, good luck. Either you'll be adding oxidized iron to your meals, or you'll spend your "abundant" free time scrubbing it off.
Like I said
April 17, 2016
These seemed very generic and not very durable. They do the job, but they just appear to be poorly made. Like I said, they serve the purpose, but I would probably not buy again. But, I am kind of picky... I noticed small things like the rough edges... I did like the ladle.
On the cheap side.
April 2, 2016
They are definitely a little flimsy...not so flimsy that they will bend on you, but not stiff like you would expect at this price. I think you could probably pick up a set of this quality at Wal-Mart or something for ten bucks. In a hurry (like I was) and they will work out....if you are looking for pro quality, keep looking.
Thin, sharp handles hurt your hands to use them
January 4, 2016
I shouldn't have been so excited about the price. These are somewhat sturdy enough, but the edges of the handles hurt my hands to use them. They are very thin and sharp. What is the point of having a utensil that you can't actually stir the pot with? I wish I had spent a bit more to have better quality handles. They are shiny and a good size, but you need to wear your oven mit to use them.
Wow in a bad way.....
August 9, 2014
For 10 dollars, I guess I shouldn't complain but I feel the need. There were so many positive reviews of how sturdy and great these are that I couldn't pass it up. The few that said these are flimsy are definitely correct. They flex very easily and just feel like the price..... cheap. They are stainless steel and look great but that's about it- all show and no go. I would have paid twice as much or even more for a thicker gauge of metal that doesn't flex (and I will for the next purchase to replace these). The handles are skinny and not ergonomic whatsoever. Looked bigger in the picture. Also, the spatula has a slight curve at the tip. Not good for scraping a frying pan during or after cooking. Not even going to bother returning.
What we dont like most with these is how light they are
September 22, 2017
So far these are holding up well and heat consistent throughout. What we dont like most with these is how light they are. The handles are heavier than the actual pan/pot so the balance on these are horrible. They beg to tip over. Also, if you have steel grates on your stove top, these are insanely slippery. They slip and slide off very easily. Not good. Im in between 2/3 stars.
July 7, 2017
Update ** 9/12/17 **I really want to give these a 4-5 star rating but the handle on the larger fry pan is now loose and wobbles. Overall I really like the set but this shows poor construction after limited use in a very short period of time.Original review:Nice quality set. Non-stick works great.
Very dissappointed. Wish I could get my money back
May 30, 2017
Sigh...I was so excited about thus set and had such high hopes. I read some of the reviews and figured that it has such good ratings that I could not go wrong.Well, I was wrong. Everything sticks to these pans you have to put extra oil, butter etc, for food not to stick. The pans also hear up quickly so food burns easily. Sigh... very dissapointed.
For the Chef, not the Family.
January 20, 2014
I loved the set but if your inattentive while chasing toddlers around the house, you will burn the pan. Once food is burned in, forget about cleaning them up. If the wife and I could stand over them and actively cook, these would be great pans. I learned how to cook scramble eggs without sticking but once I left the pan unattended for too long, done, the pan burns and becomes worthless.Five stars for chefs, and the inattentive cook gets two stars.
low quality set
January 18, 2014
I needed to replace an old copper bottom set that I loved but it was time...I pulled the trigger on this one, it was on sale for under 80 bucks but even at that price I don't think is worth it.food tends to stick, you have to be on top of it constantly.copper layer is starting to peel off after only 3 monthsno cover for the pans.Sadly I threw the old set away, otherwise I would be using it instead of dealing with these :(tip: when cooking eggs heat the pan for little while first, when hot add the oil/butter and immediately lower the heat to minimum. I think that using that technique I can finally cook some omelettes without sticking
There is 2 different wrong review.
November 8, 2013
I bought these after I read most others review.I have used non-stick products only for 20 years.There are 2 different wrong review.1) Although I did not expect the convenient non-stick frying pan.After you fry an egg with enough olive oil, the result is terrible. Too much sticking stain.Do not expect the result from non-sticking frying pan.2) When you cook with this, the pot and lid handles are too hot to hold with bare hand.

These utensils are definitely NOT "stainless" steel. They rusted only after a couple weeks. I ended up throwing them out. Thoroughly dry them after cleaning because they WILL rust.
Poorly made and very uncomfortable handles
October 10, 2016
These utensils are poorly made, with marred finish. But the worst thing is that the edges of the handles are extremely uncomfortable because they are sharp. I can't even use them because they are so uncomfortable to hold.

I ordered this set based on the stellar Amazon reviews. I was disappointed in the product received. Specifically, the utensils did not appear to be high quality stainless (if they were actually stainless steel). Finish on the product was lacking, with the strainer holes containing stray casting materials that were rough, and what appeared to be thin plating on whatever base metal they were cast from. Edges on the handles were not rounded, and were uncomfortably sharp for a handle. Returned to Amazon for refund, as there are better products out there for the money.
Not what I had hoped for...

Compared to the reviews here I thought this would be a good deal. I was disappointed with the utensils. The quality seemed more in the "previously used" department and not new: lots of scratches, dents and bent corners, strange wear. The "brand names" stamped on the utensils were from three different companies and had differing styles. They work just fine but seem really cheap and of poor quality. Shipping took close to two months from the seller also.

Thin flimsy uncomfortable handles that bend easy. I sent it back right away. Nothing you want in even a modest kitchen,
Impossible to clean. Everything sticks to the bottom.

We were hoping to get 5+ years out of this set. We're only 2 months in and already regret the purchase. High heat severely damages the bottom of the pans (the most aesthetically pleasing aspect of the pans). Everything, particularly meat, sticks to the bottom of the pan and then falls apart, even when generously oiled. The handles act as strong heat conductors and get too hot to touch. That being said, these pans take a long time to heat up. Cleaning is next to impossible, and discoloration is immediate. I just did my first copper polish on the bottom of the pans, but it did no good. The luster of the copper on the bottom fades after the first use.
Awful product. Low quality.

Terrible! Didn't last more than a year.
Pass on T-fal

This product has been a complete disappointment for me and my family. The Non-stick Surface has not lived up to the hype.
If you care about your family's health then AVOID these pans!

Bought once, never again! The non-stick coating started flaking off within about one year of normal household use. We can literally see it pealing off, and yes, into our food! Who knows what's in the coating that my children have ingested. I expected much better! I expected them to last at least 3-5 years, but now we're stuck shopping for new pans. And, we have no plans of buying T-fal's low quality products ever again.In effort to be somewhat positive... the spatulas are actually decent quality!
Waste of Money

These pans are about the same quality as a $30 set you can get at any local store. We have followed the directions on how to care for them and they stick, every single pan sticks and it's been that way since we bought them. I would advise against this company as the products never live up to how good they say they are.
MUST READ BEFORE BUY THIS PAN!!! NO ...

MUST READ BEFORE BUY THIS PAN!!!NO WARRANTY! IF YOU COOK ON THE HIGH HEAT. Please see my pans photo. The warranty department email me that no warranty...***I do not know how can I cook food on the low and medium ONLY!*** So I will not buy T-fal again"Most instances when the non-stick coating has lost its' non-stick properties, it is due to overheating of the pan. Cookware with non-stick coatings should be used on low to medium heat settings. One indication that your pan has been overheated is that your non-stick has turned a brown or rusty color. Overheating of the non-stick coating will cause the non-stick properties to break down. As a result you will find that foods are sticking to the cookware. Overheating voids the warranty. You may try to clean the non-stick coating with a mixture of baking soda and mild dish detergent using a soft cloth. Depending on the degree of overheating, this may help return some of the non-stick performance."
