With these complete kitchen utensils, you can cook all gourmet meals at your home kitchen.

The product is price-tagged much cheaper than other products (see All-Clad SS Cookware Set prices ) while the quality is trust-worthy and evidenced by lots of people. If you are looking for a cookware set with the following features, Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic is your best choice:

Excellent Heat Distribution with speed and evenness
Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic has an encapsulated pure aluminum base enabling heat conducted quickly and evenly. No hot spot is generated during cooking. You will need less time and energy cost to cook a meal than other products.

Comfort and Stay-Cool Handles
Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic are attached by rivets with cast stainless steel cool grip stick handles. The pans have good balance and weight; however, you will feel not too heavy to operate them. The design has ergonomic considerations all through the product details. The stainless handles stay cool when you are cooking.

Safe and Durable Polished Cooking Surface

The cookware set has mirro finish staniless steel cooking surface. It does not discolor, react with food, or alter flavors. Compared with non-stick coating pans, Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic Stainless Steel Cookware Set is safe for daily meals. PTFE/Teflon coatings on non-stick pans are suspected to have carcinogenic effects on human bodies. They will flake off and deteriorate after 3-5 years of usage while stainless steel cookware can be used for lasting years with proper care. Another safe cookware material is cast iron. We also listed Lodge cast iron pans in our website.

Stable Stainless Steel Lid
Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic has equipped with stainless steel lids that fit tight to trap flavor, moisture and nutrients. They are attached with wide and easy grip handles. The lids stay stable on the pans when you cook. One thing you need to watch out is that the lids may be hot during cooking and you should take care in case someone is burnt.

Multiple Working Environment
Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic is a versatile cookware set. Oven safe to 500°F, it can be cooked on induction cooktops, gas and electric stoves, in oven, or under broiler. It also can be put in freezer for easy food storage. If you don’t wash them by hand, just put them into dishwasher and they will turn shinny again.

Drip-Free Pouring

The Rims of cookware are tapered to make pouring clean and easy.

 

Concerns:

Some people may worry that stainless steel pans will have terrible food sticking problems. However as mentioned above, Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic has fine polished interior surface, terrible sticking does not happen on the cookware set. For those who are used to non-stick pans and do not use oil or butter for cooking, stainless steel pans require some oil or butter to make meals. If there is some discoloaration or residual food sticking left on the pans, you can use Bar Keeper’s Friend (See Bar Keeper’s Friend) to removes thing that you don’t want. Normally, directly after cooking, you are encouraged to soak the cookware with water and soap. Then using sponge to clean those pans is all what you need to do to clean them. And you will get Cuisinart 77-10 Chef’s Classic as beautiful as they are totally new.

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!
