Cuisinart Stainless Steel Cookware

Review of Cuisinart Chefs Classic 17-Piece Cookware Set

Cuisinart stainless steel cookware will handle most daily cooking tasks with ease. The stainless steel won't react with foods like tomatoes that are well-known for interacting with the metal used in cookware.

Pouring is drip free due to the tapered rims, and you can pop them right in the dishwasher after dinner. It is oven safe, so you can brown your meat on the stove, and finish it off in the oven.

These pans look as wonderful hanging in the kitchen as they do on the stove or on the table. You can get these stainless steel pots separately or as a Cuisinart cookware set, as needed. Handles are riveted on so they stay in place with minimal problems. The pots heat nicely due to the encapsulated aluminum disks in the base of each piece. A limited lifetime warranty from Cuisinart guarantees your happiness with the product.

Cuisinart Positive Features

cuisinart stainless steel cookware The price is very reasonable for 18/10 stainless steel cookware. The Cuisinart stainless steel cookware is made to cook almost anything well, it just takes a little practice. Foods cook well, and meats brown very nicely in these pans. The pans heat evenly and quickly. The drip free rims are a great help when pouring liquids like gravy, sauces and soups.

The lids fit very well, keeping the moisture in where it belongs. They work well on a glass/ceramic top cooking surface. By using a product like Bar Keepers Friend or Cameo Stainless Steel cleaner, the pans stay nice and shiny. Cuisinart stainless steel cookware is a great value for your dollar.


Some people consider the Cuisinart stainless steel cookware to be difficult to clean, and they may get spotty after using the dishwasher. Food should not be cooked over high heat using these pans. The pans will discolor, and the food will tend to stick and burn.

Some customers had spotting issues just from boiling water. The company suggested remedies, but they did not remove the spots. The lids may get a bit hot to handle. Cuisinart does not pay for postage if you need to send a piece back for repair or replacement.
