Nonstick inside and out for easy cleaning, this 10-piece cookware set outfits a kitchen with the basics while permitting healthful, low-fat cooking. The set consists of a 8 inch saute pan, a 9.5 inch saute pan, a 11 inch saute pan, a 1-quart saucepan with lid, a 2-quart saucepan with lid, a steamer, and a covered 5 quart Dutch oven that doubles as a pot for cooking pasta, simmering stock, or making soup. Lids are vented, made of tempered glass, and have knobs that adjust to vent steam for controlled cooking. Ergonomic handles made of tough plastic stay cool on the stovetop and are oven-safe to 350 degrees F. They're welded, with no inside rivets to trap food, and have hanging holes. Though inexpensive, the cookware is handsome and stylish, with charcoal gray exteriors and charcoal black interiors. Bottoms resist warping for uniform heating without hot spots.
