if i take the time to write a review it is because i am blown away by the quality of a product. i highly recommend these pots. i want to drag everybody away from the anolon, present day calphalon, circulon garbage on sale now to consumers and drag them over to the Martha Stewart display at Macys.
Martha Stewart collection professional tri-ply cookware Martha Stewart Collection Professional Series Tri Ply Cookware - Cookware - Kitchen - Macy's
if i could make a suggestion to the Martha Stewart people, these need to be advertised in cooking mags, cooking shows.
the display at Macy's was deplorable, sloppy and tucked away in a corner. (memorial city mall - Houston Texas). they also had a damaged pan on display, which no sales person caught (noticed?)(cared about?) and is probably scaring customers away. really? really?
another suggestion: these pots need to be open stock. among real cooks who buys a SET of pans at one time? I don't and don't know anybody who does.
another suggestion: this collection needs a 1,2,3, qt saucier line with curved sides similar to all clad saucier line. also a 1,2,3 qt windsor pan, no lid.
the quality of these pans is comparable to all clad tri-ply all or all clad D5. simply amazing response to heat change, no hot spots, very nice.
i don't know why the description says they are lightweight-- nope, they are quite hefty. watch the little video that Martha put on the Macy site on how to pick up a professional quality pan (under the forearm). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVVZ8lbUGCc
also, because of the visible aluminum core, i would NOT put these in the dishwasher, but that's me.
these are perfect for a gas stove, because the aluminum core goes all the way up the sides.
