Comment: When Erik came to visit this week, he got tired of eating out after day 3 and brought some groceries back to my apartment only to find that I had nothing to cook with. So he went over to Walgreen's and picked up this "premium" set of pans for me. Thanks for the great housewarming gift Erik.

Update(10/10): After 3 uses, the non-stick coating disintegrated into my pot of spaghetti sauce. So I am once again pot-less until further notice. I guess you get what you pay for. But what bothers me now, is what happens to them? I can't donate them because the flaking non-stick is toxic, and I don't think they are recyclable. It sucks that something as substantial as cookware can be made so cheaply that it becomes a disposable item.
