If you're shopping for cookware that will last forever, this is it. Best for @ least two people. Nests & stores very nicely. Extremely durable & heats evenly. Cleans up very nicely with a little soap & water, "Scotch" pad, or sand. (Blue discolorations caused be overheating can be removed with copper cleaner). A bit heavy, but if weight is not an issue, this cookware set is for you.
