Cuisinart Stainless Steel Cookware SetReview of Chef's Classic 10-Piece Stainless Cookware Set
This Cuisinart stainless steel cookware set has all the basics for setting up your kitchen, including saucepans, skillets, and a stockpot. All the rims are drip free, and the pans are made of professional quality 18/10 stainless steel.
This material does not react with food, creating a fresh flavor. An aluminum disk is sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel to make the base of each pan, creating quick, even heating.
Make soup, stew, gravy and vegetables with ease. Fry meats in the skillets, or sauté mushrooms to perfection. This is a terrific set of cookware to start out with, and makes a great housewarming or wedding gift.
Most customers have felt the heat distribution is very even and efficient. Meat browns well in the frying pans, and by deglazing, you can make an incredible gravy in them. Food cooks quickly, even on lower heats. The lids are made heavy enough to stay on when boiling items in the pot.
The Cuisinart stainless steel cookware set is a great way to get away from nonstick coatings.
ConsiderationsThe Cuisinart stainless steel cookware set can be challenging for some people to use. You must learn to cook at lower temperatures, and watch your food while it cooks. You must heat the pan first, then add your oil and let it heat before adding food. Cold food tends to stick more than room temperature food.
The rivets holding the handles in place can become loose occasionally, allowing food to lodge between the rivet and the pan. They can discolor from cooking over high heat. Some customers complain about the heat conductivity. The lid handles can get too hot to touch without a hot pad.
This set seems to be of lesser quality than the Cuisinart Multiclad set. Many of the bonus items were not sent to customers when they purchased the set as advertised.
