I bake bread, made baked beans, stew, chili. This is my favorite piece of cookware
This set was a lil pricy but it was worth it. Very high quality and unsurpassed my expectations
I liked the heat distribution.
Good thick bottom heavy weight pots and pans. Just soak em in hot water a bit and wipe clean. I was skeptical buying sight unseen, but not disappointed in the least.
I hated this set the first week I used them.
Serious problems with anything I cooked sticking to them and creating a film that was ridiculous to get clean. They are very pretty, heavy, sturdy no doubts in the quality of the product.
I would like to give this company a lot of credit. Their customer service is absolutely top-notch! Special thank you to Erica for reaching out. She was professional and motivated to rectify the situation. She is an asset to your company, and you should keep this employee as long as you can.
Update: I have since made several meals in these pans after getting a replacement (braised short ribs, homemade pho, ratatouille, Swedish meatballs and some flambé shrimp). I can't say anything negative about this set. Deglazing these pans will help a lot prior to cleaning.
Thanks again Erica!
I've been searching for a new set of pans for my husband for a while.
A couple of months ago, he got a new Camp Chef smoker/grill, so I wanted something heavy-duty that he could use on that, but I still wanted something I could use on the stove and in the oven.
When I started looking, I was floored by the prices. I wanted a good set that's made to last, but there was no way I would spend $1,000-$1,500. 😳 I wanted to keep it under $500, but I also didn't want to skimp on quality. I made an apples-to-apples comparison between 3 of the other 5-Ply stainless steel sets and the Legend set.
No significant differences in quality and functionality would necessitate spending 2-3 times as much as the Legend set. I've been using Legend cast iron pans for years, so I knew that any product I got from them would be made with the highest standards.
I surprised my husband with these right before Thanksgiving. He was thrilled that he had new toys to play with. We're super impressed with the quality and workmanship.
From the minute you take it out of the box, you can feel the quality in the weight of the pans. They're very solid and heavy duty. They look and feel like they're made for the long haul.
The new 5-ply version uses a 304 stainless steel layer on the interior to make it easier to clean. The next three layers are made of aluminum for faster and more even heat distribution and retention. The final 5th layer on the pan's exterior is made of 430 stainless steel, which makes these pans perform like a dream no matter what type of cooktop you use.
My husband used 3 of the pans on the smoker for Thanksgiving and I used one in the oven and one on the stovetop. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the pans performed beautifully. There was no warping or hot spots, just superior temperature control. The design of the pans is exactly like those that you'll find in a professional kitchen.
The cast stainless steel handles are all ergonomic to make carrying the pans easy. They're also expertly riveted into the pans for increased stability and longevity. I love the little details that make using these pans easier to use, like the easy pour rims, heavy custom-fitted lids and the measuring lines on the interior of the pan.
Those lines were a lifesaver on Thanksgiving when we made a million dishes and kept running out of measuring cups. At the end of the day when it was time to clean up, I was thrilled that these could go in the dishwasher. I was amazed that they all came out spotless and looked brand new.
Make sure that you read over the care guide that it comes with before using your pans. If you follow the care instructions, these pans will be ones you hand down to future generations. They even have a Forever warranty just in case there are any issues with the pans. This set is worth every penny and then some. This is a cookware set that'll come with no regrets.
