Product Description
This cookware set is an exceptional value, including all of the pans needed to equip your kitchen with the most used cooking-Pieces. As the set contains only basic-Pieces, you’ll really use each and every pan. It includes saucepans for whisking a Review
From KitchenAid’s Gourmet Essentials line comes this cookware set made of hard-anodized aluminum. Durable, handsomely finished in matte charcoal gray, and known for its exceptional heat distribution and retention properties, hard-anodized cookware is a very popular choice for the home chef. KitchenAid embellishes these pots with stainless-steel handles, riveted for strength and wrapped with cushy, stay-cool silicone grips. The lids, made of break-resistant glass for optimum viewing, also feature silicone-wrapped handles, highly arched to enable easy grasping with a potholder or oven mitt. Both the pans and lids are oven-safe up to 400 degrees F.

An excellent value, this 12-piece set consists of the most frequently used kitchen pots and pans and makes a great gift set. The two skillets, measuring 8 and 10 inches in diameter, handle everyday frying and sautéing needs, from eggs-over-easy to grilled cheese sandwiches to fish filets, then crepes for dessert. Three saucepans holding 1, 2, and 3 quarts let you boil a single egg, heat soup, and slow-cook a creamy risotto with wild mushrooms. The large 8-quart stockpot with two loop handles works admirably for family-sized batches of pasta, chili, soup, and corn-on-the-cob. Finally, the 12-inch covered sauté pan with its helper handle tackles generous quantities of fried chicken, braised meats, stir-fries, and poached salmon. The nonstick finish releases food quickly and makes clean up by hand a snap. It’s best to keep the nonstick cookware out of the dishwasher. KitchenAid covers the set with a one-year, hassle-free replacement warranty. –Ann Bieri

  • I have had the same cookware set for about 8 years and knew it was time

    for a change and upgrade. I read reviews on this and made the decision.

    Well, it was one of the best I’ve made yet! The cookware is extremely well made, heavy, durable and a joy to cook with. It actually cooks faster than my last set because of the material. I am currently looking for extra pieces that are available. This is a wonderful set and I don’t believe you will be disappointed.

  • This is a gift and will not be opened until December 25th so it is very hard to rate at this time.

  • I’ve watched the price of this item increase weekly. The price of the 10 piece set is $129.99, but, for the 12 piece set that includes only the chicken fryer and lid is $100+ more? How is that justifiable?!

  • I purchased this cookware in Oct 08 and by Jan 09, I had problems. the story is rather long but in a nutshell – lifetime warranty does not necessarily mean what the consumer thinks. Therefore, I am stuck. Use caution in buying.

  • I like the product but don’t like not being able to put into the dishwasher. Have to hand wash to prevent losing the nonstick properties..
