Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazminejo Excellent Cookware
For several months I have been reading up on the various cookware that is available, determined to buy a high quality replacement for my current cookware set. At first glance, I thought to buy All Clad, but found the price off-putting. Then I found Cuisinart's Pro-Clad set. After reading all the glowing reviews, I decided to purchase it for myself. As I unpacked the set from the box, I could tell right away that it was well made and solid, which is exactly what I wanted. I've been using the cookware for two weeks now, and I'm so pleased with its performance. It cooks evenly with no hot spots, and I haven't had an issue with food sticking, even scrambled eggs. If you take the time to preheat the pans properly before cooking, your food won't stick. I agree with the other reviews I've read, in that this Pro-Clad set is of comparable quality to the All Clad, but for half the price. I adore this cookware and plan to add more pieces of Cuisinart Pro Clad to my collection soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Keepitsimple A Disappointment-Returning it
I spent a lot of time looking at reviews to make a good choice on a nice set of stainless steel cookware as it was our desire to use a "healthier" cookware option.
We tried out best to make the Cuisinart MultiClad Pro set work.
We experienced all the of following:
Seasoned pans to try to create more of a non-stick surface Used non stick spray
Used barkeeper friend/interior/exterior
Used stainless steel polish/exterior
Soaked before cleaning
Dried immediately after washing to avoid water spots
Only cooked with low to med/high heat
Handles DO get very hot!
Heavy and unbalanced
"WAY TO TEDIOUS" to maintain
Food sticks even when following all recommendations to prevent it
Scratches very easily.
Unfortunately this set is not working for us and is a disappointment...just creates STRESS in the kitchen.
We have used stainless before, but nothing like this!
Unfortunately will have to return and make another choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jakques Great Cookware Set!
I have had this for over 2 years, it is my first cookware set. They are thick, can go into the oven up to 500 F, and adjust to heat nicely. The lids seal on very well, and the handles are comfortable to grip. Set has everything you would need for a home kitchen.
My only complaint is one of the pans warped. Might have been my fault putting it hot into cold water. I cannot tell as I originally had a coil top stove before getting a glass top. I think there is a lifetime warranty on this.
The other two 1 star reviews are questionable. Stuff will always stick to steel unless you use oil or butter, or cook in a liquid; they are not stick free teflon! If you use metal utensils or scratch pads (to clean with) in the pots, it will only make it harder to clean the next time as it makes the surface rougher allowing food to stick. This is true for all steel pots and pans. Try soaking in hot water and soap and use a soft cloth.
As for changing colors, steel will always change colours when you heat and cool it, especially when using acids (lemon or tomatoes), or if you slightly burn the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tootser The best cookware for the price
Wish I would have ordered this set years ago. If anything sticks I use a little baking soda and it comes right off. I fry meats and eggs with no sticking. Reading other reviews really helped. Don't use metal utensils, they scratch, never cook on high heat, and always make sure pan is heated to right temperature before adding food.

I've been using cheap, useless teflon coated pots and pans in the past years. When I received these in the mail, I was so excited, but at the same time, I didn't want anyone to touch them until I could, rightfully, break them in. The glory that was to be, with the first dinner I made, using each and every one of the pots and pans, to the enjoyment of my family. The biggest challenge was on how to clean them. After different trials, I finally googled the solution and watched a video on YouTube. The secret is....... BarKeepers Friend! That's right! Doesn't scratch up the pots and pans, and leaves them sparkling clean. Only to be used if you have stains on the pots and pans that won't come off.

My Husband bought me this set as a Valentine present. I read the booklet that came with it and have followed it closely. Every time I use the frying pans everything sticks to the bottom and such residue that I have to soak in warm water to get it halfway clean. I have used 2 of the pots and the same thing happens. I would not recommend them at all!!!!! Extremely disappointed.

This set of pots is amazing! I am no professional, however I do enjoy my time in the kitchen. With a little research on cooking with stainless steel, these pots and pans are everything I was hoping for! Great looking and practical!
