A nice choice for those looking to set up a first-time kitchen or to add to a growing repertoire, this 10-piece cookware set provides all the essentials. It consists of an 8-inch saute pan, a 10-inch saute pan, a 1-quart covered saucepan, a 2-quart covered saucepan, a 5-quart covered Dutch oven, and two handy tools - a slotted spoon and a slotted spatula. The saute pans offer gently curved sides for flipping food or sliding an omelet or grilled cheese sandwich easily from the pan to a plate, and the saucepans come in handy for cooking breakfast oatmeal, heating up soup, or making marinara sauce. The included Dutch oven holds a heap of chili, chicken and rice, and other one-dish meals - start by browning meats or sauteing onions, then add liquid and other ingredients to finish on the stovetop or in the oven.
In addition to providing all the essentials, it also proves that a quality collection of cookware can be affordable. The cookware features durable aluminum construction for fast, even heating, while its nonstick interior ensures effortless food release without the need for excess butter or oil, which means lower fat cooking options and quick cleanup. The cookware comes equipped with silicone soft-grip handles that stay cool to the touch while offering a secure, comfortable grip when lifting or transporting. It also supplies tempered-glass covers with large cool-touch knobs that trap in heat, moisture, and nutrients, plus make it easy to view food at a glance, without the need to lift the lid. Oven-safe to 350 degrees F, the cookware cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher and carries a 10-year limited warranty.
