I have an Equal Parts pot and pan set in the cream color, their chef's knife, and their oak cutting board. Overall, I'm pleased with the product. I'm a really big fan of Pattern and love the look and feel of everything they've made. I had their first generation big pan (black on black color) and ended up killing it within six months. I take partial responsibility for this, since I pretty frequently cooked at high heat and made some messy dishes withe the pan. Eventually there was a lot of carbonization and it wouldn't clean off no matter what I tried. We ended up getting their second gen set (cream on cream color) and haven't had any issues like that. I recently walked in on my wife sizzling peppers and onions with oil and red wine vinegar at high heat and I was sure the pan was a goner. As advertised though, the product cleaned off just fine. I think their second generation of products saw major improvements in durability. If you're considering buying these, its worth doing some research on different materials for cookware and thinking about how you cook. Equal Parts recommend cooking at low to medium heat primarily. While I find these beautiful, I think stainless steel might have been more appropriate for the dishes we cook. Finally, I'll speak to the knife. We have a few different chef knives and my Equal Parts knife has actually grown to be my favorite. It's pretty lightweight and I like the ergonomics, so I find I get a lot less hand or wrist pain when doing more strenuous chopping, like working through a few sweet potatoes.
I'd love to see a stainless option for a pan. Additionally, I don't feel like my cream colored pans will age very well. Over time, it's gotten some brownish stains from use and I suspect they'll look pretty rough before long. Colors and materials that look good after heavy use are always a plus to me.
