The Anolon Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel range is the highlight of Anolon’s long-standing experience in crafting quality cookware. A premium line of top-quality stainless steel cookware with heavy, 5-layered bottoms with a copper midlayer for optimal heat conductivity, these pieces are a must for a seasoned cook’s perfect experience in the kitchen. 


The Anolon Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel cookware range features heavy-duty stainless steel construction that makes them durable and dependable. Their heavy bottoms have 5 layers with a copper midlayer that gives the line its name. This copper layer enhances heat control and conductivity, while the heavy bottom makes these pieces suitable for all stovetops, including induction. 

The pieces come with deep-seated stainless steel lids that are designed to lock in heat and moisture during the cooking process, while their handles are sturdy and dual-riveted for extra strength. For optimal convenience, the pieces are dishwasher-safe as well as oven safe up to  500°F.

Quality and Durability 

This line of cookware is built to perform and customers have noticed. They mention the line’s heavy bottoms and elegant design, noting that they are of really good quality and perform consistently well even after heavy use. Some customers have noted that the heavy bottoms mean that the pieces take some time to heat up, but once they do they retain and conduct heat perfectly, resulting in a really nice cooking experience. Due to their stainless steel construction and heavy, 5-layered bottoms, these pots and pans are especially durable and made to last. 

Some customers have faced problems with food sticking or discoloration of the stainless steel polish, but these comments are few and far between. While the pieces are premium and rather high in price, most customers claim that their quality and performance is worth the price.
