Now, I have a thing for stainless steel pans. I quite like non-stick frying and grill pans but not sauce pans. These 3 Russell Hobbs pans came as a set and were made of stainless steel, just like I wanted. The price was very attractive plus they looked good in their online picture. When they came, I unpacked them only to find that the glass lid of one of the pans, the biggest to be precise, was slightly cracked. It was not that obvious but still, a brand new lid cracked before the first use got the set to lose one star! However, I got to really like my set of pans as I got into the habit of using them for everything from boiling rice to cooking soups and vegetables. To me they are pretty indispensable now. They do the job fine and are quite easy to clean too. I would recommend that you do not use metal utensils with your pans as they scratch easily. I use nylon utensils personally. The glass lids have a vent to let steam escape and the fact that the lids are made of glass also gives them that stylish appearance that we all like for our kitchen. Altogether, this set of three pans from Russell Hobbs is a winner for me.
