Using jQuery, how can I reset all <select> values but not all <input> values?

In this example, all <select> values should be set to "xyz" when the button is clicked:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<title>Demo</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {

 $('input').val('123');
 $('select').val('0');

 $('#restAllSelect').click(function() {
  $('select').each(function() {
   $(this).val($(this).find('option:eq(2)').val());
  });
 });

});

</script>
</head>
<body>
 <div>
  <input type="text" value="abc" />
  <select>
   <option value="0">0</option>
   <option value="XYZ" selected="selected">XYZ</option>
   <option value="A">A</option>
   <option value="B">B</option>
   <option value="D">D</option>
   <option value="E">E</option>
  </select>
  <select>
   <option value="0">0</option>
   <option value="abc">abc</option>
   <option value="bbb">bbb</option>
   <option value="XYZ" selected="selected">XYZ</option>
  </select>
  <select>
   <option value="0">0</option>
   <option value="1">1</option>
   <option value="2">2</option>
   <option value="3">3</option>
   <option value="4">4</option>
   <option value="XYZ" selected="selected">XYZ</option>
  </select>
  <button id="restAllSelect">Reset selects but not inputs</button>
 </div>
</body>
</html>

Hi,
to set all selects to the value "XYZ" just use this:
 $('#restAllSelect').click(function() {
  $('select').each(function() {
   $(this).val('XYZ');
  });
 });

Thank you both.  I should have specified that the point of this question is to RESET the value.  The actual values will not be XYZ.  They could be anything.  I want to reset the select elements to the value where the option has the attribute selected="selected".
