Features

  • Mirrored stainless steel exterior and an encapsulated base for even heating eliminates hotspots

Pros

  • The weight of each piece is solid allowing you to flip foods and move pots and pans fast during rush hour without slipping. The handles give you good grip preventing you from slipping. All the pans heat evenly and quickly; they are also best for slow cooking. All pieces are also easy to clean and require low maintenance.

Cons

  • Since stainless steel heats up fast, overheated oil may cause black spots on the pan but can easily be removed with a good pot cleaner. It the pot is not too hot, there’s a tendency for the food to stick, but if you will add a little oil, this sticking issue is not a problem at all. Another common complaint to this cookware set is the “non-stick” issue.

BUYER’S GUIDE:

 All the products we try to suggest you here are dependent on the way you feel about the product and what type of product fit for you.

Quality:

It is almost always proportionate to cost. However, you don’t have to break the bank to get decent, everyday cookware that will last a long time if you take proper care of it.

Stove type:

The type of heat source also has a bearing on the cooking utensil selection. If you do open flame cooking, most kinds of cookware are generally suitable, although there are some limitations for glass and ceramic cooktops in the way the bottoms of this cookware are shaped.

Lids:

Lids are often overlooked when it comes to buying cookware. You always want to look for tight-fitting ones. Also, consider the material of the lids. Are they glass or steel? Glass will allow you to see what’s going on in the pot during the cooking process.

Handles:

Some pots and pans come with handles made from different materials. If you want something that you can cook on the stove and in the oven, you will need to find one with oven-safe handles.

Reactivity:

Sometimes metals get reacted with certain foods. Like Aluminium tends to react with tomato and other acidic dishes. This means that your food can also absorb some of the metal.

Conclusion

Buying a cookware set is usually a lot cheaper than buying a single product. Before buying a cookware set always check its cost, quality, durability and read reviews of users who had already used it.
