Rated 5 out of 5 by Katey the greaty No Fuss Pots & Pans
I really fell in love with my new cookware set. Upon opening the box I noticed everything was packaged really well. Removing the pans, I noticed a pretty blue color on the outside of the pots and pans, and the lid handles even matched, with a nice blue color. When it was time to use the pans I noticed that nothing was sticking, I didn't even need to use cooking spray. The food seemed to cook evenly and the pans have cool heat indicators on the bottom. To be honest I don't need something to tell me the pan is hot, but maybe some people do, who knows. How does the T-fal 12 pc cookware set compare to other products you've tried? I would have to say that this set is really nice for a nonstick cookware set because it works like advertised. Compared to others though, I think this set isn't the best overall. The key thing that it really lacks is thickness. The pan is not thick enough to retain heat for too long. I would say this is a perfect starter set, but don't count on having it for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jussmeali love T-fal
I received this 12 piece Signature T-fal Set as a review and its wonderful. Long ago when t-fal first came out I had a set ..and the same set still sits now in my grands dorm..This is the best set of pots and pans you can have...So easy to clean..non-stick and I do mean no sticking. Handles stay cool to the touch an its pretty. One thing from my own history with this... is please never use metals . If you're careful you wouldnt damage it..but I suggest always using rubber,wood or silicone.. if you do this they will last a lifetime. From my past I can tell you the color never fades and as I stated my original set has now been passed down to my grand in college..I would recommend this and any set of T-fal to anyone. Its wonderful and actually fun to use,due to the easy so easy clean up you get..wipe it out with a paper towel even..all I can add is its a great product!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Boblita Browne Not Bad for Non-Stick
I usually use cast iron, stainless, and enamel coated pots and pans, and I was looking for new pots and pans, so when the opportunity to receive these for free, well I couldn't pass them up. These pans are heavier than I expected, which I love, the handle could be just a tad bigger, but I am used to it. As for cooking, they heat up fast and cook more evenly than my past non-stick cookware (which is why I stopped using it), and I got great crispiness when sauteing. Clean up of course was a breeze, and I tried to be mean. No scratches even after hubby used a fork in it, several times, making scrambled eggs. Have these pans brought me back to non-stick? I'll update my review in a few months, but for now I am very pleased. As for the utensils that came with the set, they are kind of flimsy, I will be using them in my camping gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieLynn All the pans you need!
This is such a nice set. It has everything you need to cook a great meal. The pans are the perfect size. I love that they are truly non-stick. I have cooked many different foods in them and everything has came out easily. The food cooks evenly. I like that the handles don't get hot so I don't accidentally burn myself. No one likes washing pans but these washed so easily. I hand wash them and they are so easy to get clean. Pans still look like new after using them for a couple weeks. I would highly recommend these pans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dana Myers Would Definitely Recommend this Set!
Having not replaced my cookware in almost 15 years, it was definitely time for a new set. From the time I opened the box for this set, I have been pleased with the experience with the product. It is AMAZINGLY easy to clean (dishwasher safe?! Yes please!) and use and retains heat and cooks very well. My husband was the first to use a pan to fry an egg and was amazed with how well it cooked. It cleans easily and seems durable, although the material could be a little heavier. Our last set was anodized (Sp?) and it was heavier but did not clean as well. There was also a useful variety of sizes in pans and pots and lids in this set, including a griddle. Even the utensils were a plus as I prefer utensils with smaller handles instead of the fancy, Bed, Bath & Beyond-like ergonomic grips and sometimes those simpler handles can be hard to find. I have used the set now to fry eggs, cook apples, pasta and a variety of sauces and every thing I have used the set for has turned out well and it seems to work beautifully with my stove. Would highly recommend this set to anyone as a reasonable priced gift - especially for someone just starting out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lexan66 Lightweight but a great starter set
This is a very nice set for someone just starting out. It has the most used sizes, stack nicely to store and the nonstick surface is holding up nicely. I love that it comes with utensils, a great addition. I'm a chef so I've got better cookware in my collection, but I do find myself going back to these pieces over the week that I've had them. The 5.5 quart dutch oven is the perfect size for pasta, a pot of soup or chili, and I love the glass vented lid for keeping an eye on things. There are three sauce pans (3, 2 and 1 quart) and they all come with the same vented glass lids. Two fry pans, about 6" and 8" without lids, are great for eggs, burgers, pretty much anything you want to cook. The packaging says that they are oven proof up to 350*, but I don't put nonstick pans in my oven so I don't know if it works or not. There is a red spot in the center of the pans, called the Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator that shows when your pan is preheated. I thought it was a gimmick. It's actually pretty handy! The soft touch handles were a little odd at first, I'm used to metal, but I'm growing more and more fond of them. My only concern long term will be that they are lightweight and possibly may bend over time. I've had other light pans crush if they get dropped or knocked into the counter. So far they are holding up well but it's only been a week. In short, if you need a set of cookware that will handle the basics, this is a great place to start. Will it last forever? Probably not, but for the price it's a solid set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linds Awesome durable product!
The nonstick works fabulously! I was surprised at how fast it could boil water compared to my other pots. Scrambled eggs don't stick at all to the sides. After a solid week of use I can't see any scratches under close inspection. The seem like they will last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Latacia H Excellent Brand!!
First time trying this brand and I wasn't disappointed!! Food heats up quickly. The pots and pans do not scratch easily. And the best part, they are super easy to clean. I cooked chicken in a sticky sauce and I thought for sure that I would have a hard time getting it to come off but nope...came right off. Definitely buying this brand!!
