I know I have been throwing "T-fal" around like crazy lately, but it is with good reason.
I was sent a beautiful 12 piece set with "Thermo-Spot". What that means is, in middle of the sauté pans, is a red dot with writing and circles. When your pan is at the optimum temperature and ready for your ingredients it turns completely solid red. I love this for sautéing, nobody wants their veggies sitting in oil so long they won't brown up or sauté nicely. Another thing I love about the sauté` pans are of course they are nonstick and the handles don't get hot. All of the pots in the set are oven safe to 450 degrees F. I tested it and they did beautifully. Just REMEMBER, the handles are HOT when you get them out of the oven. I know, it might be obvious to you, but if you are in a hurry and you just are thinking, "oh, they don't get hot" and BAM, you need a skin graft. Know what I mean?

There is another HUGE perk to these pots and pans, and that is, they are marked with measurements on the inside! WOOHOO! Seriously, no more measuring or guessing. It is right on the pot, and easy to fill your pots to the desired measurement. I also appreciate the glass lids. I have the attention span of worm and I love watching my food cook.
I also tested this in the dishwasher. I am leary of ever putting my cookware (and knives) in the dishwasher. I sucked it up and went for it, for the sake of testing every claim these pots have. It turned out just fine. I have to say, I won't do it on a regular basis, I just can't, I CAN'T but, in a hurried moment I will know they are going to be just fine. When you hand wash the nonstick pans, the food just slides out. It makes me all tingly. Even the nonstick clean easily.
I am completely satisfied, and even impressed with these pots. With the 12 piece set you get:
-5.5 Qt Covered Dutch Oven
-3.2 Qt Covered Sauce Pan
-2.2 Qt Covered Sauce Pan
-1.1 Qt Covered Sauce Pan
-8 in. Saute Pan

This set retails for an average of about 100.00 depending on where you buy it. I not only think it is a quality product for the price, I think if you don't get your hands on it, you are nuts! Oh and by the way, mine have black handles, some have red. I am not sure what you will get if you win the giveaway.
