Martha Stewart Brand Cookware
I recently purchased a five piece cookware set from Macy's that is Martha Stewart brand. I like the fact that it was a large set for a reasonable price. It came with five pans and four lids. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is not copper bottom cookware, but that is to be expected considering the budget I had to work with.
The cookware is easy to use, non-stick and very easy to clean. It looks far more expensive than it is. My favorite things to cook with it are omelets and pasta. The stock pot is extremely large and I am able to make chili for eight in the pot. I also like that the small frying pan is the perfect size for omelets and that the clean up is easy.
The cookware has lids that fit nicely on their respective pots and they store nicely in my storage unit on the back of the pantry door. The pots and pans also fit nicely on the storage rack on the wall. The cookware is very sturdy and has been used and washed a number of times. The cookware claims to be oven safe up to 500 degrees, and it has seems so with at least one piece of the set, at least to 425 degrees.
The bottom of the cookware has burned a bit on one pan, but most of the pots and pans have not been burned by their use on a gas stove.
Each lid of the cookware set has a steam hole which comes in handy when making dishes such as rice and pasta dishes. The lids and handles are wrapped in a silicone rubber material which makes them resistant to heat and very easy to manipulate while cooking over high heat.
Considering the price, this was a great cookware set to purchase and I would have no problem buying it again or giving it as a gift.
