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.

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.

    a little story on how i found these pans.

    i own a varied collection of all clad old master chef, newish all clad D5 and MC2, old calphalon hard anodized professional from 1980-1990s (the good ones from Toledo Ohio, not the junk made now from china), revere-ware, and basic 20 qt stockpots. the divorce-- i lost half of the pans. i ignored this issue until i regained my interest in cooking, now, 5 years later.

    i noticed i missed a tall 4 qt "straight sides" revere saucepan i used to have. i started my search on eBay, but didn't want to pay 100 bucks for a good revere pan. went to sur la table, Williams Sonoma, Ace-mart restaurant supply, and Macys, Walmart, TJ maxx and Ross-- I haunt Ross and TJ Maxx for high end cookware. I noticed that all the lines available to low end cooks had glass lids. unacceptable. I don't "do" glass lids. and thin, and cheap, and nasty handles, etc. Also why is everything non-stick? how can you cook in non stick? non stick is only for eggs and potatoes.

    my search took months. i was patiently waiting for the Williams Sonoma Best Stainless Steel Cookware & Pots And Pan Sets | Williams-Sonoma line to go open stock so i could buy the pieces i wanted. then i stumbled on this line at Macys. i looked at it and thought about it for a couple of weeks and went back several times before i bought the 4 qt saucepan. Martha Stewart Collection Professional Series Tri-Ply Saucepan, 4 Qt. - Cookware - Kitchen - Macy's

    very impressed.

    i plan to buy more if this line goes open stock. i want the 6 qt stockpot but this is a want and not a need, so it will have to wait. i realize that my review is based on one piece so far, but i hope it helps. if my house were to burn down and i had to start over, this cookware SET would be my choice.

    wow, another truly superior product bites the dust. sep 2013 all this was on clearance at Macy. where Macy/Martha "blew it" was product location in the store. Poor, sloppy display. not advertised to foodies. not open stock. this was NOT a mainstream product, but was packaged and marketed to mainstream cooks.

    the biggest mourn for me anyway, is that for truly superior cookware for foodies and professional cooks, that it was not "open stock". not being "open stock" killed this line of superb cookware. among real cooks who buys a SET of pans at one time? I don't and don't know anybody who does.

    i know it's silly but I feel sad and slightly angry. poor business decisions, poor advertising. honestly i mildly want to slap someone upside the head - a dope slap.

    i felt this way when "steak and ale" went out of business.
