5A Great Set of Cookware
By kimz
Let me preface this review with the fact that I am Italian and raised 5 children on daily home-cooked meals. The kitchen is the center of my home. So when my daughter got her own apartment out west and asked for a set of pots for Christmas, I wanted to make sure I got her a quality set that would last her for years and years. I knew what I wanted for her, but didn’t recognise which brand to purchase. Non-stick was out (I have never liked it). The pots also had to be both dishwasher/oven safe, and I wanted the pot handles to be riveted into the pot. Off I went to the mall with my “specifications” in hand to look at the dissimilar brands and sets available. Boy was I amazed at how some there were! I took my time and examined each set. Not only did I look at the sets, but I also handled the sets. This is VERY important. Many of the quality sets were so heavy that I necessitated two hands to lift the more spectacular pieces, and though I could lift the littler saucepans, I had difficultness tilting them to the side to pour. Others had handles that were very uncomfortable to use. Then I came upon the Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Stainless 10-piece cookware set. I was very impressed by the quality. They were heavy grade yet easy to handle. They likewise met my other specifications listed above AND they looked in truth nice as well. The price of $149 was rather unbelievable. I drove home and ran straight to my computer and ordered the set through Amazon. I got free shipping and had the set delivered directly to my daughter. I also employed the holiday bonus coupon for $25 off my order. I was so impressed with the set and the deal Amazon was offering, a few days later I purchased a second set through Amazon for myself. I LOVE them. They cook beautifully on my gas range and clean up well in the dishwasher. The handles DO NOT get hot while cooking, which altogether astonished me. Do be careful with the lid handles though. They will get hot if cooking on higher heat. I haven’t had a problem with delicate foods burning due to the high thermoconductivity of the pans; however, my stove is a professional grade 6-burner unit. I don’t recognise if that makes any divergence or not. All I may say is this set looks great, cooks great, handles great, and sells at a outstanding price. What more may you ask for?

5Fantastic Cookware Set at a Terrific Price
By Barbara
After comparing major cookware lines, All Clad, Emeril, Wolfgang Puck, Jamie Oliver online, as well as in major stores, Williams Sonoma, Macy’s, Linen n Things, etc., I purchased Cuisinart’s Chefs Classic set. Quality, features, and value could not be matched! The price (with free shipping), likewise included a kitchen tools set, a nice bonus.

Thanksgiving was my huge “road test”. The quality is outstanding! The mirror finish stainless kettles have a nice weight, well-fitting lids, classy sturdy riveted handles, flat bottoms that fit nicely on the burners, and stay-cool handles. They heat evenly. I do not like nonstick cookware, and by adding a little water to the pan after cooking, cleanup was a breeze. I put them all in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling.

I purchased a chrome potrack and display them proudly. They in truth look and carry out like very high-priced cookware. This was without doubt a outstanding purchase!

Any minor spotting or discloration from use, disappears like magic with the use of a little amount of Barkeeper’s Friend powder.

I am so pleased with my set that I have already added to it; I purchased a 2qt. and 3qt. saucepan, and the 5 1/2 qt. saute pan. The saute pan is a work of art; peculiarly good for those big pieces of meat on Holidays, and at $39.99, an unbelievable value. I plan on purchasing assorted as gifts.

It is likewise ovenproof to 550 degrees; something not found in the plastic-lid products.

You will not be disappointed.

5My “Black Friday” Purchase
By Gerhard Bohn
The day after Thanksgiving, “Black Friday” is the official kick off of the Holiday buying goods season. I have never participated in this event, nevertheless those 20% coupons to shop among 6AM and 11AM enticed me. I necessitated a new cookware set, since my old pots and pans dated back to before I was born.

I am known as the “Research King” & “The Negotiator”, so yes I did my homework. I was going to buy a non stick set for $300.00, nevertheless you have to “feel” the set before buying. Is the weight even, do the covers fit right – you know what I mean. NOTE: I cook each night and have for years. I am not a Chef, but may cook a outstanding meal.

Right next to Anolon at Macy’s Dept. store, was the Cuisinart 10 Piece Classic Stainless cookware. It looked good, the weight was even, the lids fit great, but why so inexpensive? I researched Cuisinart and knew it was a good brand, so after playing around with the pots and pans for 20 minutes I purchased the set! So this is what I got:

- 8″ & 10″ Skillet

- 1.5 QT & 3 QT Saucepan with covers

- 3.5 QT Saute with helper handle and cover

- 8 QT Stockpot with cover

FREE Gift with purchase: 2 QT Saucier

Extra Purchase: 5 1/2 QT All intent pan with cover.

So, all in all, I got a 13 piece set for the grand total of: $130.75

Yes, I took vantage of a 20% coupon and then an further and added 10% coupon. All 13 pieces are portion of Cusinarts’s Cheft’s Classic line.

My Experience: (Rate by school grade A through F)

* Appearance: All the pieces looked great. The set looks as if it must be worth $500.00 (Grade A )

* Weight: The weight of each piece is solid and even. An primary point because I flip my feed and move the pans a lot while cooking. Note: These pieces do not feel cheap. Very good solid feel. (A-)

* Covers: The lids are a little light in weight, nevertheless they create a vacum seal when the heat is turned down. They do a better occupation then I expected. Normally with lighter lids you think they would wiggle and pop off, but these hold tight! (B )

* Handles: Solid Stainless steel, riveted handle. Solid feel and yes they stay cool. Also long sufficient to get a good grip. (A)

* Heat Distribution – Cuisinart recommends cooking on lower heat. Yes, this is true. The aluminum bottoms heat quickly and there are no hot spots. Trust me, use low heat. (A )

* Sticking – Well, these are not non stick. I used most of these pots and pans already to reheat our Thanksgiving dinner. Some things actually stuck to the pots even when using PAM. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, stuck like glue. Next morning: Bacon stuck, but eggs did not. Go figure…. (B-)

* Clean Up: Water and soap in pan right after cooking. Yes this works well, but I have always done this. (B)

* Dishwasher: Yes, they are dishwasher safe, notwithstanding after one cycle, the inside bottoms of a couple of pans had a purple tint to it. So, I have decisive just to hand wash these for now. (Until I get lazy). (C-)

Final grade: B

4Glad there were two in the package.
By Big Bird
The knobs are handy replacements for broken knobs not available from the manufacturer. I ordered the item to repair a broken knob on a slow cooker.

Glad there were two in the pack. First problem was the supplied screws were too short to use on the cover. I purchased longer stainless steel screws at a local hardware store. I overtightened the original one and cracked the heat shield. Fortunately there was another in the package to use.

I applied the cover only once so far and the knob worked o/k but got loose. I think I’ll add a lock washer to eliminate that problem.

All in all glad this product is available to replace basi knobs other than as supposed or expected the appliance would be unusable.

5great starter
By aunt B
I found this set to be the best buy for getting the basics. The non-stick pans are great for sautéing and eggs come out unbelievable. There is a good assortment in this set. The handles have a sturdy construction and are always cool to the touch. Having glass lids is also helpful to watch feed without loosing heat while cooking. I cook a lot and buy some dissimilar types of cookware depending on what I’m making, so this set is a good base to get started with and build on.

5Great Cookware Set
By S. Slack
This is a terrific set of cookware and holds all the pieces necessitated for somebody starting a new kitchen. The cookware is very sturdy and the nonstick surface is so easy to clean. I like this set better than my $600+ set of Calphalon. I highly commend this set.
