Thomas Rosenthal Professional Cookware Review
(Williamsburg, VA, USA)
I got these Thomas cooking pots and pans from the Bloom Happy Points program. I earned the stir-fry pan, the Dutch oven, and the large frying pan through the program. I have been using them as my main cookware ever since I brought them home and I love them.
They are non-stick, but I do need to use some spray to prevent sticking at times. I do this especially when I am using the frying pan to cook meat without any sort of gravy or oil. However I always found I had to do this with my other pans so it does not bother me.
It is not too heavy, which was a complaint of mine from my other pans. In some of my other pots and pans I could not pick up the pans one-handed, which made cooking dangerous at times. Sometimes it is important to quickly move a pan off of a burner, and when it takes both of your hands to do it it’s no wonder food boiled over with me sometimes.
The handles on the pans have holes for if you choose to hang your pans, which I plan on doing in my new place. I have not yet thought about how should hang the lids, but I suppose I’ll tackle that problem when I need to.
I am not quite sure why the handles are hollow, but that does not bother me. The handles do not heat up very fast, despite not being solid. This is important because a lot of the pans I used to own would heat up while I was slow cooking and I would forget and accidentally burn myself on the handles when I came back. So far I have not had this problem with these new pans.
The pans heat up well enough. I do not see any problem with them when they heat up, it does not seem to take any longer than the other pans I owned. They seem to heat evenly when I am cooking, and compare very well even with much more expensive cookware. I would highly recommend these pans!
