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 homemade sauce or cooking your morning oatmeal, a big stockpot for soups, stews or boiling pasta, and skillets (probably the most used pan in any kitchen) that will help you turn out perfect crepes or a simple grilled cheese sandwich. The set also includes a sauté pan, a wide, straight-sided pan that can perform many of the functions of a skillet but features deep sides for extra capacity, perfect for one dish meals. Start your dish in this pan by sautéing onions and browning meat, then add your liquid and other ingredients into the same pan to finish on the stovetop or in the oven.Amazon.com 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 10-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 larger 6-quart stockpot with two loop handles works admirably for family-sized batches of pasta, chili, soup, and corn-on-the-cob. 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 recently ordered this set as a Christmas gift for my wife, who loves to cook. This was on her wish list and it looked like something that not only she would use, but would last also. We just received it today, very fast shipping. I am very pleased with that.

    My problem is not with the set itself, since we haven’t taken it out of the box, but with the packaging. The set was shipped in a box displaying what was on the inside. First, it’s not a good idea to ship in anything but a plainly wrapped container. If the packaging displays what’s on the inside, anyone can decide they want it and take it before you get it, no matter what is on the inside. Second, and most important to me right now, is the fact that my wife saw the box, and because a picture of the set was on the package, she now knows what she’s getting for Christmas, 2 weeks early. I am VERY upset about this. I absolutely plan on filing a complaint about this.

    So, as a warning, if this is going to be a gift for someone, make sure that either they won’t get it from the delivery person, or make sure you have it wrapped so the person it’s intended for doesn’t see what’s inside too soon.

  • I received my Kitchen Aid 10pc set in good time and in good shape. I went to use my large pot with lid yesterday and the lid will not fit on my pot. I believe I was shipped a reject from the factory and was not told this at the time I ordered this item. I would like to know what I am able to do about this.

  • I am disappointed with these item that I purchased. The lid seems to leak on the sides of the pot and water flowing over the lid when boiling something and leaves a big mess on my stove top. It’s been more than 10 years that I used same brand named and thought about trying this brand, first time to use kitchen aid cookware. The only thing that I like about this product is the nonstick coating on it and the frying pans. Overall, I will NOT recommend this if you do a lot of cooking and will use the pots that leaks.

  • Like Ms. Gatewood, I bought this set of pots and pans and found a misfitting lid-this time to the 3 quart saucepan. The pots look great, and I hope to use them soon, but I also have to hope that Kitchen Aid will send me a new lid. Once they respond, I’ll write a follow-up review.
