These pans are the most wonderful kitchen upgrade you can imagine. You won't want to use anything else once you've tried these. The quality is evident in the heft and feel of each pot and pan. The copper responds immediately to any temperature input. I know they're expensive, but you won't burn your food anymore. They look like if these pans will last you forever! Cleaning is not that tough, but polishing is important if you want to retain the look. Highly recommend.
