I really like this set. It's handy that they come preseasoned, and both are good, all-purpose sizes. They're also not obnoxiously heavy. The skillet doubles as a lid for the dutch oven, which helps save space. They heat food evenly and have held up well under the not-so-tender dishwashing of my 15-year-old. This would make an excellent starter set for a new home, or a good choice for camping trips.
