What customers say about "Key Specs"
T-fal E918SH Ultimate Hard Anodized Non-stick
  • Very durable (but never use metal utensils!!)
  • This whole set is AMAZING! I got it when I moved into my new house and the nonstick surface on it is great!
  • Fry pans are of good quality, food does not stick much, even after 1 year of usage.
  • Only time will tell how long this nonstick will last but it is great so far. When it first arrived, I washed all the pans then heated then and wiped oil all over. It's like seasoning a cast iron.
  • Very durable and non-stick, I can truly cook like a pro chef with this set.
Farberware 84513 14-Piece Hard-Anodized Aluminum
  • Love this set! Very clean & sleek looking. Great to cook with. Make sure you hand wash as with anything with Teflon. I use mine on a gas top stove/oven.
  • The pans are nice - non stick and good sizes.
  • I really like this set. It is my first pot/pan set and it's durable and good quality. I like the variety of pans, too.
  • I like the non-stick anodized surface. It performs really well and cleans easily.
  • This isn't necessarily the most extravagant set, but they are great for a young couple or a single one starting off.

What customers say about "Features"
T-fal E918SH Ultimate Hard Anodized Non-stick
  • Easy to clean. Dishwasher safe. DOES NOT WARP IN DISHWASHER. Even heating. Large 12" fry pan has its own cover!
  • Easy to clean! Good non stick pans in which no foods stick to the pan except egg that gets stuck somewhat.
  • Super-easy to clean (No scrubbing required, even when you burn things... Which happens)
  • Weighted well, so they don't tip over
  • When you are boiling something the handles can get quite warm, remember where your oven mitt is.
  • Plastic spoon and spatula are cheap. Should not even include them. I used them once and tossed them.
Farberware 84513 14-Piece Hard-Anodized Aluminum
  • Nice and affordable set of pans. The only complaint is that the handles heat up so you can burn yourself when going back to stir or remove from stove.
  • The glass lids are also nice. Again better than I expected. Very clear, very durable feeling, and they seal nicely to the pot or pan.
  • However, the handles get REALLY hot so either be conscious about turning the handles out from the stove or always have a hot pad at hand.
  • Wish I would have spent more for better quality. Handles thin and get very hot
  • Second, I'm not loving the handles on the pots and the lids. They get hot FAST, and since I've had years of using my old cookware, with the insulated handles, there's a learning curve.
