When I started shopping for cookware, I was looking for a set that would provide me with both quantity and quality. I found it in the Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Nonstick Cookware Set that came in a 17 piece set of hard anodized pans. I couldn’t believe the great price I found online for the cookware in the well-known name of Cuisinart. It has a 1-1/2, 2, and 3 quart lidded saucepans, 8 and 10 inch skillet, 12 inch skillet with lid, 4-quart lidded saut, 9-quart stockpot with lid, a 7-3/4 inch steamer insert with lid and a 9-1/2 pasta insert.
I’m not Italian but I love Italian food. Fixing lots of different types of pasta and the delicious sauces takes a variety of cookware and this Cuisinart cookware sethas all the right pieces for every dish I fix. The hard-anodized aluminum construction and Quantanium nonstick finish in combination with an aluminum core and titanium reinforcement provide it with the strength, durability, and even cooking surface that helps foods come out right. It also means that I don’t have a hard time cleaning up and trying to get sticky sauces off the cookware when the meal is over. Although I have to wash them by hand, they come clean with almost no effort on my part.
This Cuisinart Cookware Set has stainless steel, riveted handles that remain cool to the touch, and the lids are made of break resistant glass for safety. This cookware set is sold at Amazon.com for a great price. You can cook with less oil in this cookware set because of the nonstick interior, making your food cooked healthier. By buying a 17 piece cookware set, you won’t have to purchase any extra pieces, as every piece that you will need is included.
The bottom line is that this Cuisinart cookware set is a beautiful set and a great value. Although you may find matching pieces to go with this set, it isn’t likely that you will need to purchase anything else other than some non-metal cooking utensils. Each pan has its own lid even though some of them use the same size so you aren’t having to “borrow” from one to use the lid on another piece. Each of the seventeen piece set is a piece of cookware, not accessories, and each is a size that you will find useful in any type of cooking no matter what type of food you like to prepar!
My wife and I had long wished to obtain a quality non stick cookware set.We had been using 35 year old basic stainless pots that had performed OK but not well. We had priced All-Clad and its competitors, but sticker shock always got in the way of a purchase. I then read the equipment review in Cook’s Illustrated and found this set on Amazon.com. The price was fabulous, so I bought it for our joint anniversary present. We could not be more pleased with the finish, fit and all-around cooking performance for the price. The pans heat evenly and clean up very easily. The Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Cookware Set is a very good set of pots and pans at an even better price!
