This cookwares gray nonstick coating turns brown when your cooking and emits a strange odor even when cooking over low heat. My daughter picked this out to have for her appartment when she left home. She has only been using it for less than 3 weeks and it is developing black spots on some places where it had been turning brown. I told her to quite using it. It the brown color and smell seem like a health risk alone not to mention we also realized it was made in CHINA. We are going to contact JC Penny to see if they will accept it as a return due to being defective.
