With multiple components, useful for a wide variety of stovetop applications, the Cuisinart MultiClad Pro stainless steel 12-piece cookware set features a professional-grade design and a brilliant finish. Stainless steel is ideal for stovetop cooking, for it is completely non-reactive, and thus won't spoil the flavor of foods. The tri-ply construction of the cookware features a layer of aluminum between an inner and an outer layer of 18/10 stainless steel, with the exterior being brushed for aesthetic effect. The aluminum improves the heat conductivity, resulting in even-cooked food and no hotspots.
The 12-piece MultiClad Pro cookware set from Cuisinart features dual saucepans with a 1.5- and 3-quart capacity and corresponding lids. Also included are a 3.5-quart saute pan with lid, an 8-quart stockpot with lid, 8- and 10-inch skillets as well as a 20-centimeter insertable steamer and lid which fits conveniently within the 3-quart saucepan.
The cookware features cool-grip handles that are riveted to the lids. Innovative flared rims prevent dribbling when pouring sauces. Plus, the stainless steel cookware is fully dishwasher safe and can be placed in ovens heated up to 550 degrees. Elegant, durable and affordable, this Cuisinart cookware set goes for around $300, a small price to pay for the level of quality and versatility the set offers.
