Rachael Ray Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set, Orange
The Rachael Ray Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set is built with a satin finished stainless steel with a pressure bonded aluminum base. The aluminum works to heat the pans up quicker and to distribute the heat evenly while eliminating hot spots, and the stainless steel adds to the durability of the cookware and helps the cookware to retain heat longer. The handles, which are high arching to keep your hands away from the heat, are riveted to the cookware for strength. They will not warp or bend under the weight of a full pot or from over heating and no more loose handles because the screws came loose because of repeated handling and heat. The orange silicone coating provides a cool, comfortable grip that is also non slip, even with wet hands. The handles on the glass lids are also riveted for a lifetime of use, and the orange silicone coating is always cool and comfortable to the touch. The lids, being made from glass, allow you to see what is happening without lifting the lid and getting scalded with steam.
Clean up is a snap. The Rachael Ray Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set is 100% dishwasher safe. For any stuck on foods there is no problem using a brillo pad or a scouring pad because you will not scratch the stainless steel finish. I know some people have complained about white spots forming on the base of the cookware that would not come off with regular washing, but a little bit of Barkeepers Friend quickly removed the spots. Stainless steel will not react to acidic foods and naturally resists corrosion and scratches so the cookware will easily cleanup with a sponge.
The performance of the cookware is exceptional. Since stainless steel is naturally a non stick surface, most people will not have a problem with food sticking to the cookware, but then again nothing is perfect. With care and a little spray cooking oil you should not have a problem. The use of metal utensils is also not a problem. Since everything is made of stainless steel and naturally non stick, you will not have to worry about scratches, unlike teflon coated cookware that will scratch very easily. You will not have to worry about the handles coming loose since they are riveted to the pots and will last you a lifetime. The pressure bonded base helps with heat retention and the non porus stainless steel will not react with your food. This set can be used with any heat source. They work well on older cooktops wit heating elements, glass top stoves and gas stoves as well.
