Cuisinart Chef's Classic Stainless-Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set
This Cuisinart cookware set is part of the Cuisinart Chef Classic series. It contains 12 pieces of classically designed cookware that will look good in any kitchen.

This is a great set to start your kitchen with, as it gives you several saucepans, a couple of skillets, a sauté pan and a stockpot.

Stainless steel does not react with foods and it is easy to clean. Make soups, pasta, sauces, vegetables, hamburgers, fish and more in this versatile cookware set.

Positive Features

The classic look of the Cuisinart cookware set looks and wears great. The encapsulated aluminum provides fast and even heating. This cookware is safe in the oven, under the broiler, on the stovetop, in the freezer and the dishwasher.

The mirror finish doesn't mar even after repeated trips through the dishwasher. The lids are tight-fitting to seal in moisture and nutrients. The handles stay cool to the touch when cooking. The price is very reasonable for such a large set of stainless steel cookware.


To properly use stainless steel, you must cook on low to medium heat and use an oil. Sometimes even with these precautions, food will stick or leave a film in the pan. Some people also found that the dishwasher left blue spots on the pans, while others did not.

Using metal utensils may mar the interior of the pans. Unlike some stainless steel pans, the sides on these pans are not as heavy as the bottom, which may bother some consumers. Some have reported that their set stained very easily and the stains could not be removed.

Chef Classic Features

  • This set includes three covered saucepans in 1 ½ quart, 2 quart and 3 quart sizes; an 8 quart stockpot; 8 inch and 10 inch skillets; and a 3 ½ quart covered sauté pan with a helper handle.

Overall, this Cuisinart cookware set seems to be a good deal for the money. Most consumers have had good experiences with it, finding it easy to cook with and to clean up afterwards.
