they decreased the quality of this productJan 18, 2009
The original version of this cookware was of very reasonable quality for the price. They were thicker, they transmit the heat better and were better shaped. These new ones have the same finish or look but they are not as well constructed. Compared to the older ones they are tin like. Pots now have a narrower taller and bell like design which looks to be borrowed from Kitchen Aid. Unfortunately this design is not very efficient on larger burners and as a result they take longer to boil and heat up in general. The older ones are made in Italy and these new ones are made in Thailand. I guess Costco saw the increasing value of the Euro eating into profits so they moved to a supplier in Thailand and while they were at it reduced the quality of the product. Typical and expected for a giant American retailer. Too bad though, the older ones were a very good deal. Stay away from these Thai made ones they are inferior and retail for about the same as the older Italian made version. More profit for Costco less quality for you! The very positive reviews that you read on this cookware are reviews for the older Italian made version. I am not sure when they switched, i would say between 2006 and early 2008.

Problems with large frying panDec 13, 2008
By P. Smith
My husband bought me a set of these pans five years ago to replace everything non stick we had due to my parakeet being killed by the nonstick toxins.. I have really enjoyed the pans, although they are heavy.. But.. I realized fairly recently the bottom has separated on my biggest frying pan, and soon I won't be able to use it. I am going to check and see what the warranty is/was. I hope it was lifetime. In any event.. I would be cautious about buying them again. BTW.. I have only used these pans on gas ranges. the rest of them are fine, but they haven't had the use the big frying pan has. I use this pan once or twice a week..but since it is classed as professional, I would have thought it would stand up to constant daily use, which I haven't done.
