Review of Cuisinart MCP-12N MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of Cuisinart MCP-12N MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set
Dec 302013
 

When ibestinduction.com was going to list the best induction cookware, one of our editors Jim Steward firmly recommended Cuisinart MCP-12N with his own experiences. He bought the MultiClad Pro Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set 1 year ago and it brings gourmet food and joy to his family every day. With Cuisinart MCP-12N, culinary work is a fun instead of chore at all, so Jim thought it is his honor to share his cooking secret with all our website users.

Cuisinart MCP-12N includes a 1-1/2- and a 3-quart saucepans; an 8- and a 10-inch skillets; a 3-1/2-quart saute pan, an 8-quart stockpot and a steamer insert. The collection can meet all your demands for cooking any food that you can imagine: pancakes, homemade marinara sauce, pasta, beef stews or vegetables…

The cookware set are made of tri-ply 18/10 stainless steel (SS) construction with aluminum at their core with brushed exterior and mirror-finish interior. The construction helps the cookware to gain best strength with SS layers and the optimal heat conductivity with aluminum elements. Brushed exterior is beautiful and capable of strong scratch-resistance. The interior surface is top sleek so food can glide well and do not stick to the pans at all.

Jim use Cuisinart MCP-12N  on his gas stove in kitchen very well. When he has an outdoor party, he will bring out his BergHOFF Touch Screen Induction Cook Top in his garden to make barbecue.

The reason Jim did not buy a non-stick PTFE/Teflon pan is that the coating is possibly carcinogenic and he wants to ensure his daily meal is safe. Furthermore, the non-stick coating usually has a life time of 2-6 years and after that it will flake off and you must replace them with new one and spending money again.

Before paying for the induction cookware, Jim also read reviews on Cuisinart MCP-12N set. He noticed that the rating of the cookware is 4.6 stars out of 5, made by 177 real customers. Most of the customers are very happy with their purchase and Jim think the negative views are minor and not substantially important.

Jim uses sponge and hot water to clean the pans when he has time. But since he is very busy, he would use dish-washer, another reason he choose SS product while non-stick pans cannot be used in dish-washer. If there are some hues or residue sticking to the pan, he used Barkeeper’s Friend (See Barkeeper’s Friend). and they turn to perfectly shinny again.

Review of Cooks Standard NC-00210 Multi-Ply Clad Stainless-Stainless Steel 10 Piece Cookware Set

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of Cooks Standard NC-00210 Multi-Ply Clad Stainless-Stainless Steel 10 Piece Cookware Set
Dec 302013
 

Cooks Standard NC-00210 is a multi-Ply clad stainless steel 10 piece cookware set. It is one of the best offers for people who care about product quality and prices as well (See the quotations by clicking the left picture).

The cookware set has all the essential pans for cooking. Cooks Standard NC-00210 consists of a 3-quart covered saucepan, a 1-1/2-quart covered saucepan, an 8-quart covered stockpot, an 8-inch and 10-inch open skillet, and a universal covered steamer insert that matches the 1-1/2-quart and 3-quart pan alike. If you are going to set up your first-time kitchen, get them and you will have your gourmet style dishes easily.

Multi-Ply Clad Construction of Stainless Steel and Aluminum

 

Cooks Standard NC-00210 is constructed three layers of clad metal: two layers of 18/10 surgical stainless steel with a multi-element aluminum core. The interior surface is sleek and steady and the exterior one has a shinny mirror-polished finish. The layer combination is designed to ensure both the durability (thanks to the stainless steel layers) and the optimal effect of even heating (due to the aluminum layer) from the bottom up the pan sides for the whole pan body.

The cookware is compatible to induction cooktops in perfection. Many of our website users are very satisfied with the match. In order to know what kind of cookware can be used on induction cooktops you may refer to our post : The Ultimate Guide to Select the Best Induction Cooktop

Air-Flow Technology Making Handles Cool

There are complaints and warnings for people who are cooking to watch out the hot handle during cooking; but they are not applicable on Cooks Standard NC-00210 which has great air-flow technology to make the handle stay cool. The handle is attached to the pan body with rivets and has an open V-shaped design as you can see from the picture here. It is comfortable to hold and lift.

Safe for Health

Cooks Standard NC-00210 is safe to use, as the interior surface and the lid are all made with high quality stainless steel. No PTFE or Teflon are used for the non-stick coating that has potential risks to human bodies. The coating will deteriorate and shake off after using a period of time. The leakage may lead to carcinogenic consequences.

Another safe material to make cookware is cast iron where Lodge is a excellent brand, see our post  Review of Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet

Cleaning is Breeze

Cleaning and maintaining Cooks Standard NC-00210 is breeze. Food do not stick to the fine pans and if there are some discoloration or residual stubborn spots happening on them, use Barkeeper’s Friend (See Barkeeper’s Friend). to clean them and they will shine again as new. Compared with fragile coating of non-sticking woks, SS pans are much stronger and more durable. And Cooks Standard NC-00210 is among the best!

Review of Emeril PRO-CLAD E914SC64 Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Dishwasher Safe 12-Piece Cookware Set by All-Clad

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of Emeril PRO-CLAD E914SC64 Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Dishwasher Safe 12-Piece Cookware Set by All-Clad

Jessica and Tommy were married in June 2013. They have purchased a house at Burbank, Los Angeles, planning to have babies next year. They are really looking forward to the happy life and bought a lot of home appliances including a Vollrath 59500P Mirage Pro Countertop Induction Range from Amazon. But their old non-stick saucepan refuses to work on the stove. So they asked us for help and we gave them a list of induction cookware. After a few days of research, they chosen the Emeril PRO-CLAD 12-Piece Cookware Set.

Jessica, who is the main chef of the family, is very satisfied with the performance of the silver pan set during the last 2 months. She helped us write the following reviews on Emeril PRO-CLAD.

The fist reason the young couple chose the set is that it is not a non-stick cookware covered with unnatural chemical coating such as PTFE or Teflon. They are going to have babies and don’t want to have potential hazards through digesting leached carcinogenic elements.

They do have reluctance to buy SS (stainless steel) products, afraid of food sticking to the pan and following chore of cleanup. However, with pleasing experience of cooking, they found that the worry is not necessary at all. And cooking & cleaning is as easy as on a brand new non-stick pan (Tommy’s old Teflon pan cannot be used any more with deterioration).

It is better not use the pan through over-heating and cooking extremely salty food. It may leave some stains on the pan. However, even if discoloration or sticking residuals happens, you don’t need to panic. Barkeeper’s Friend is a cleansing powder with light abrasion side effect, work in perfection to remove them with a sponge. (See Barkeeper’s Friend). Jessica also found a cleaning up alternative. She heated the pan containing some white vinegar and water for a while and the stains just miraculously disappeared without a trace.

 The 2nd reason is that Emeril 12-piece cookware can meet all they needs for kitchen pans, including 10-Inch fry pan, 8-Inch fry pan, 1.5-quart saucepan with lid, 2.5-quart saucepan with lid, 3-quart saute pan with lid, steamer insert, 6-quart dutch oven with lid and universal splatter screen.

Jessica uses them every day, sometimes on her gas stove and sometimes on the Vollrath 59500P induction cook top. The professional tri-ply cookware set is bonded with high quality stainless steel and aluminum construction. The pans look beautiful with shinny stainless finish. The cocktail design helps gaining instant and evenly distributed heat transfer when cooking.

The pans have a heft but not too heavy for a housewife to hold. The ergonomical design makes cooking easy and comfortable. The handles are attached to the pan body with stainless steel rivets. Lids are made of tempered glass which enables you watch the food progress when cooking. It is Tommy’s favorite to observe the beef stew boiling within the saucepan. The lids are oven safe to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and the pans are oven safe to 550 degrees Fahrenheit.

The third reason is the cost-effectiveness. They don’t want to be too luxury on appliances. This quality cookware is manufactured as collaboration by All-Clad & Emeril. See All-Clad products at Amazon, you will agree that the Emeril PRO-CLAD is much economic with high cost-effectiveness ratio. They are versatile and work well on all stoves  such as gas, electricity, ceramic and induction cooktops.

Jessica and Tommy expressed their gratefulness to our help and want to share their happy experience with other people. They hope their kids incoming will love the Emeril PRO-CLAD as well.

Review of Ozeri Stone Earth Pan , with 100% PFOA-Free Stone-Derived Non-Stick STONEHENGE Coating

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of Ozeri Stone Earth Pan , with 100% PFOA-Free Stone-Derived Non-Stick STONEHENGE Coating
Dec 262013
 

Nichole Chase, a mom of 5 kids, lives in Kern County, California. She is a loyal reader of ibestinduction.com and recommended the Ozeri Stone Earth Pan to us. She said she has great cooking experience on the pan and wants to share it with all the people.

Before using the Ozeri Stone Earth Pan, she had tried a line of cookware but was disappointed with them. Her first try was a ceramic pan and she used it to fry meat, eggs, pancakes and vegetables. At the first 3 months, she was satisfied in general except for the dishes sticks to the bottom, though not much. However, the pan made a mess in the Thanksgiving Day when she prepared a big meal for her family. The mutton in the pan scorched and stuck hardly to the bottom. She tried to remove the scorch with towel and soft brush, but could not make it. Later she bought other non-stick cookware, but the coating of them did not last long either.

Finally, she found the Ozeri Stone Earth Pan by listening to the ideas of her friend. She has used the pan for over 12 months now and is 100% satisfied with the product. As a try, she bought the 10 inch pan and later decided to get the other 2 sizes to home, 8 and 12 inch Ozeri Stone Earth Pan.

The coating is called STONEHENGE made in Germany. It has amazing properties of hardened scratch-resistance. Nichole’s nightmare with other cookware does not take place with this one. More importantly, the pan’s stone-derived coating is 100% PFOA-Free and beneficiary to the environment and Nichole’s 5 little kids. Conventional kitchen utensils use PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid) to have non-stick properties; however, the chemical is harmful both to the environment and also on human bodies as testified by experiments on laboratory animals. The possible effects of PFOA, which may stay in people’s body for long time once ingested, on cancer hazards have not been completely understood by scientists yet.

The STONEHENGE coating made the pan superbly non-stick. She is shocked by the little amount of oil needed to fry chickens or other food. Meat and vegetables just glide very smoothly at the flat bottom. And Nichole has no worries if they will stick and scorch.

The Ozeri Stone Earth Pan is perfect to work on induction cooktop. Nichole has a Duxtop 1800-Watt Portable Sensor Touch Countertop Burner 8300ST and she would take it outdoor when she had parties. The Ozeri Stone Earth Pan is made of the highest quality of die-cast aluminum, with a magnetized bottom for fast heat transfer on induction cooktops. The cocktail design enables even cooking and energy saving. She actually adjusts the cooking temperature of Duxtop 8300ST 2 levels lower than using other pans. Besides, the pan has a silicone coated handle which stays comfortable to hold during cooking.

The rating of Ozeri Stone Earth Pan is 4.8 stars out of 5, made by 141 real customers. Actually, another product of Ozeri, 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan, gets amazingly 5 stars, the highest rating, made by 143 real customer reviews. It seems that Nichole’s satisfaction also occurs on many others.

Review of 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri, with a 100% PFOA-Free Non-Stick Coating

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri, with a 100% PFOA-Free Non-Stick Coating
Dec 252013
 

The Ozeri Earth Pan is a fantastic non-stick stainless steel cookware, with which you can cook a lot of food such as bacon, omelet, eggs, fajitas, stir-fry, meatballs, sautéed vegetables and grilled sandwiches. It is durable, energy-saving, versatile and the most importantly, safe to use.

The 10″ pan features ETERNA, the world’s longest lasting 100% PFOA-free non-stick coating which is developed in the United States. Conventional kitchen utensils use PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid) to have non-stick properties; however, the chemical is harmful both to the environment and also on human bodies as testified by experiments on laboratory animals. The possible effects of PFOA, which may stay in people’s body for long time once ingested, on cancer hazards have not been completely understood by scientists yet.

The Ozeri Earth Pan’s coating, developed in the U.S.A, has no PFOA at all and the performance of non-sticking are excellent. As little as half the amount of oil normally used is needed to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise. Actually some people do not drop any oil to fry eggs on the pan. Cleaning the cookware is also very easy, because things on the pan just slide off when you wash it.

Besides, the durable earth pan has great scratch-resistance capability. You will be amazed by the shinny surface after long term daily cooking. However, metal fork, knife or other sharp utensils should not be used on the pan.

The 10″ Earth Pan by Ozeri is made up of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel with TriPly construction. The magnetized bottom makes the pan capable of being used on induction cooktop in perfection. Heat distributed very even, quick and energy efficient. You are suggested to adjust the temperature setting of cooktop lower than other pans when cooking the same food. What is surprising is that the long handle, which is tightened to the pan through 3 solid rivets, can remain cool to hold during cooking while the pan itself can be heated quickly.

The rating of the 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri is amazing, 5 stars, the highest rating, made by 143 real customer reviews. They gave positive remarks on the handsome looking, handy design and great properties of non-sticking and heat retention.

Review of Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet
Dec 232013
 

Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet is a very excellent kitchen utensil for people to cook delicious food. One of my friends, Joy Emma, is a backbone fan of Lodge cast iron cookware. There are lots of Lodge pans of different specs in her kitchen. She uses them to bake pancakes and fruit crisps as well as fry fish, bacon and chicken. It has been extremely pleasing to enjoy the dishes she made.

The design of Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet has taken all situations into consideration. It works perfectly on induction cootops alongside with gas or electricity stoves. The pre-seasoned products, before they are distributed for sales, are coated with a thin layer of soy-based oil in order to make the cookware sleek and away from rusting. The skillet has totally 8 optional sizes for you to choose; namely 3.5, 6-1/2, 8, 9, 10.25, 12, 13-1/4 and 15 inches in diameter. They have two handles for heavy lifting, and two little side lips for pouring.

The skillet has a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, evaluated by an amazing number of 3,084 real customer reviews in Amazon. Usually a 3 digital number of customer reviews is a large base already and the 3 thousand plus proves that Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet has been purchased by so many people and very popular among them.

A reason that Joy loves Lodge logic product line is that they are made of cast iron. She has 2 sons and 1 daughter. She cares a lot about their health. They are good kids and help her cleaning the kitchen utensils after dinner. The sturdy cookware is safe to use. You don’t need to worry about the PTFE or Teflon coating on so-called non-stick pans. The chemical can be rubbed off when you wash and may leak into food during cooking, leading to potentially very serious illness. Cast iron is a ferro-alloy composed of iron, carbon and silicon. The material has been used on earth for thousand years and proved secure for making cookware.

Cooking with Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet makes Joy’s dishes all success. There are tips for you when cooking, provided by the griddle’s manufacture Lodge:

Lodge Cast Iron is right at home on induction, ceramic, electric and gas cooktops, in your oven, on the grill, or even over the campfire. Do not use in the microwave.

On glass or ceramic cooktops, lift cookware; never slide it.

Our cookware is safe at high temperatures; use metal, wood, or hi-temp silicone utensils.

Some foods may stick to new cookware (especially eggs). Use a little extra oil or butter until you’ve built up the seasoning.

Acidic foods like tomatoes, beans, and certain sauces can damage seasoning, and should be avoided until the seasoning is well-established.

Cast Iron rarely needs to go above a medium heat setting when properly pre-heated. For the times when you do cook at higher temperatures, add oil to cookware just before adding food to prevent sticking.

Our handles get hot; use mitts. Use trivets to protect countertops from hot cookware.

One thing you need to take care is that cast iron has great properties for heat transferring and the handles may get hot during cooking.  You will need a protection such as Mitts, Trivet  or Hot handle holder when you want to catch the pan. You can also buy the Value Pack with Silicon Handle.

Cleaning Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet is easy, even for the kids of Joy. The tips can be seen on our post How to clean a pre-seasoned cast iron cookware correctly? You can also watch the helpful video showing how to clean a Lodge pre-seasoned pan which is made up with cast iron. This process is applicable to cast iron cookware, such as griddles and skillets, of other brands and models.

What if the skillet has Iron rust?

Cleaning and keeping the skillet in a good shape will help it away from iron rust. Nevertheless, if rust happens, don’t panic. You can re-season it by referring to our article: How to Re-Season You Cast Iron Cookware?

Review of Lodge L9OG3 Pre-Seasoned Round Griddle, 10.5-inch

 Cookware  Comments Off on Review of Lodge L9OG3 Pre-Seasoned Round Griddle, 10.5-inch
Dec 212013
 

Lodge L9OG3 Pre-Seasoned Round Griddle measures at 10 1/2″ diameter and 1/2″ depth. The size is perfect for making 3-4 pancakes while keeps the grill not too heavy to handle. The lip is low so flipping the food inside is easy. The term “pre-seasoned” means pans, before they are sold to consumers, are placed with a coating on the surface in order to keep cookware smooth and away from rusting. The coating could be wax, oil or shellac. Lodge L9OG3 Pre-Seasoned Round Griddle is made with soy-based vegetable oil evenly baked into the pores of cast iron, insead of wax or shellac which can be labeled as food-safe, but not as natural as vegetable oil.

Safety is the first thigh what we should consider before buying a pan which directly contacts food. In the market, there are many non-stick products which have a coating of PTFE or Teflon which may leak into the food and possibly leads to serious problems on the basis of daily usage. On the contrary, cast iron and stainless steel are very safe materials for cookware since iron is one of the most commonly seen elements on the earth and has been used for cooking utensils for thousands of years by human beings.

There are tips for you, provided by the griddle’s manufacture Lodge: Lodge Cast Iron is right at home on induction, ceramic, electric and gas cooktops, in your oven, on the grill, or even over the campfire. Do not use in the microwave. On glass or ceramic cooktops, lift cookware; never slide it. Our cookware is safe at high temperatures; use metal, wood, or hi-temp silicone utensils. Some foods may stick to new cookware (especially eggs). Use a little extra oil or butter until you’ve built up the seasoning. Acidic foods like tomatoes, beans, and certain sauces can damage seasoning, and should be avoided until the seasoning is well-established. Cast Iron rarely needs to go above a medium heat setting when properly pre-heated. For the times when you do cook at higher temperatures, add oil to cookware just before adding food to prevent sticking. Our handles get hot; use mitts. Use trivets to protect countertops from hot cookware.
