Hey, with this set, I wouldn't have to wash pots/pans for a whole week! One pot or pan a day!

Check out the reviews at Amazon (five 5-star reviews): http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-14-Piece-Non-Stick-Anodized-Cookware/dp/B009TCEYIY

Meanwhile, woot, what's up with that list price?

That is what I was looking for. I love my Stainless cuisinart for my induction stove, but I guess these have the ridges on the bottom as do most non stick.

This looks just like my Cusinart set which I bought 8 years ago. Use one or two pieces almost every day and its still in great shape. Great price. Would buy, except I still have several more years on my existing set.

See? That's why we need more crappy products. If you buy something once and it lasts forever, you never need to buy it again and the economy goes down the crapper.

These cannot be used on an induction cooktop because they are aluminum.

We own this exact set, and we LOVE them. Take care of them, use common sense when cleaning them (no harsh abrasives), and they'll take great, great care of you. I'm incredibly picky with the weight distribution of pots and pans (and knives) and for me, the weight distribution of this set is ideal. You can't go wrong with these.

The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.

It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.

The only negative that I can say about this set is the handles. They simply are not comfy handles. The dip in the middle places all the weight onto the two edges when lifting the pan and for my small hands, made it too uncomfortable to consider buying the set.

The Cuisinart brand of hard anodized aluminum is coated with a non-stick coating called Quantanium. Quantanium has been claimed to be a form of PTFE and, therefore, has the same toxic properties as Teflon.

If the anodized aluminum cookware does have a Teflon-like coating, there could be serious health concerns. The EPA has taken administration action against DuPont for not warning consumers of potential health risks.

According to The Optimum Health Report, "Teflon is so prevalent that PF0A has been found to contaminate 92% of U.S. children tested to date, and most of the adult population as well."

My only problem with this is the original price that Woot! has posted, is not right, $199 on Cuisinart's website. My family still has a set and they are great so nothing against the product :D they cook great on our traditional gas stove.

Does the aluminum mean they would warp faster than stainless steel or iron?

I always had cheap pans until I picked up my stainless steel set two years ago when I bought a house with an induction stove. Best pans that I have ever had. I used to go through wallyworld "quality" pans every 12-18 months before that.

This is a decent non-stick set but for those of you who want better overall durability, the ability to toss in the dishwasher, fully clad construction, and no questionable chemicals (non-stick), you should take a look at stainless steel instead: http://amzn.com/B009JXPS6U

They have almost the exact same stainless set in some Costco stores for $150, which is a much better deal than this one IMO. Only difference is that one has glass lids, a pasta insert over a steamer insert, and an extra skillet in place of a 5th lid.

If you do make the switch to stainless, I recommend keeping a 8" non-stick skillet around just for cooking eggs.

I bought the 1 1/2 quart saucepan from the Cuisinart Chef's Classic line (same as this set). The non-stick coating flaked in 3 small spots. In order for their lifetime warranty to cover it, I would have had to pay for shipping as well as include a check for $7 for return shipping, but I live in California, so they reimbursed my shipping cost. The replacement flaked within a month. The replacement for the replacement has also flaked. It's my understanding that they will insist on the entire set being returned for warranty coverage. It took me nearly a year, and many phone calls to get shipping reimbursed for the 2nd replacement. I am about to send in the 3rd saucepan for replacement. Thankfully I live in California so I haven't had to cover the shipping. The saucepan works well. The cover handle gets uncomfortably hot during normal use.

Exactly what I was coming here to say, thank you!

If you're going to rationalize buying nonstick cookware, at least go into it with your eyes open.

I have this set (purchased outside of woot) and love it. It's amazing how quickly these heat over my aging Calphalon set. They clean super-easy. Impressed how they can be non-stick AND produce a good, quality sear on anything I make. Highly recommend.

Addendum:
Regarding the safely concerns, I purchased this set BECAUSE anodized aluminum was reported to be the safest (at the time of purchase) of all the non-stick surfaces. The process creates a coating that is only beat, strength-wise, by diamonds. You'd have to work very hard (or very stupidly) to make this surface leech into the food you cook.

After reviewing the pricing, checking out a bunch of reviews and then reading what some owners in this discussion said, I pulled the trigger and am in for one. Wife has been saying we needed new cookware anyway so she we be pleased. Well, at least for a while. lol

Sadly the eHow article is poorly researched when it states, "Alzheimer's has been linked to aluminum overexposure." This has been debunked. Welcome to the interdumbnet.

I think the Costco set is more than $150 now. It's still worth it. I have had the Costco set for six months or so and have been very happy with it.

Hi, Wooters. Does anyone know if this set will accept the use of metal utensils? I hate the plastic ones that always seem to be recommended for non-stick cookware.

Thanks!

I own a set except mine have Stainless Steel lids. The pots/pans are heavyweight & have great handles on them. If cared for properly, they will last a long time, unfortunately my X-wife burned several of them which toasted the coatings(Damn Her!;). but if you use non-metallic utensils & don't abuse, they are a good product.

Be mindful of the glass lids for these. If you leave anything boiling with a lid on the lid will shatter into the little tempered glass balls all into the food and over the floor. Check the reviews for many types of pans by Cuisinart on Amazon and you will see the issue isnt to one particular set.

Cuisinart stuff is made in china now as well so they arent good at honoring any terms on the chinese made stuff.

Plus the already mentioned non-stick liner being toxic. Using metal spatulas and spoons with these will increase the chances of flaking and scratching it off into your food.

Lastly the List price is WRONG on these. The mods keep saying the 68-14SA is a different set than the Amazon 68-14SA set but it isnt. Unless this is the one with the steamer insert and different handles this is NOT the $500+ list price set. If it is the $500 list price set, Woot is using the wrong product number AND picture. 68-14SA is a $200.00 product.

Amazon has the list price at $299 and sells it for $175. Woot (I believe) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Amaazon, but lists the list price at $580.

It's still a good deal, but the information on the list price is a bit suspect.


[MOD: Probably a different set. I don't think this set is on Amazon. Our List is from the manufacturer.]

I'm pretty sure "Quantanium" has the dreaded PTFE in it to make it nonstick. I prefer ceramic.
