Believe it or not, but I have never owned a cohesive set of pots and pans. My kitchen stock is made mostly of things my mom didn't want anymore. Also, many of the items were practically ruined by a former roommate and her squatter boyfriend. I don't care what they say, you DO NOT put non stick pans or knives in the dishwasher! But everything has changed now, the set is gorgeous! Everything is shiny stainless steel with simple, clean lines. The nonstick is silky smooth and perfect free of the garish gouges in my current ones. The bottoms are nice and heavy to ensure even heating and heat-retention. And everything that needs to have a lib has one; no more covering my little sauce pan with aluminum foil to cook rice! It is everything I need when combined with the only pieces of equipments I want to keep from my current supply. (Full review once I actually get to use them!) I am now SO happy I didn't get any of the cookware from my wedding registry because this stuff is so much better (and wasn't available a year ago.)

I am sorry that I didn't snap any pictures of dessert because it was really pretty. Sarah made white chocolate bread pudding and we topped it with cherries jubilee. Ultra decadent!
