This cookware is terrible!!! I purchased 17 pc set (not cast iron)from JCPenneys. I got my $20 rebate from the company right away, but I consider the remainder of my purchase price a total waste. Everything sticks in the pan no matter how much butter or oil you use, very hard to clean and cheap looking and feeling. I don't know who came up with the "steam" handle but food and gook gets stuck in there and you can't clean unless you unscrew it. Utensils are oddly shaped and flimsy.
Yes, I bought these because the price was good. But I also bought them thinking that JCPenney's -- a major department store -- would sell higher quality than the Wal-Marts of the world.
