Our Rating:

What does it include?

  •  7.5″ fry pan

  • 1-qt. and 2-qt. saucepans with lids
  • 5-qt. Dutch oven with lid
  • 10″ square griddle

What to Love?

  1. Aluminum construction: this feature helps with heat distribution. The aluminum heats quickly and evenly, which avoids any hot spots. Thus, your food will be cooked evenly all around the pan.
  2. White ceramic nonstick interior: You will be able to try new recipes that you hadn’t tried before out of fear of food sticking to your pan. You can even melt cheese on this pan! It is also scratch and stain-resistant and super easy to clean.
  3. Dishwasher safe: Just leave it there and go about your day! No need for washing by hand. Think of all the time you will save and invest in more important things.

What’s not to like?

  1. Handles: They have the same problem as the previous one, with customers complaining about them loosening up with time. This is a huge deal-breaker since handles are a vital part of cookware.
  2. Durability: Customers have reported that the quality of the pans starts to decline after a few months.
  3. Weight: The pans are very lightweight and may feel cheap.

Final remarks: 

With similar problems to the 14-piece set, this one doesn’t look like a good investment. The price point may be very appealing but when looking at the long run, it may be a better idea to buy a more durable set.

Our score: 3.5/5

What to Love?

  1. Appearance: These pans have a beautiful gold color that looks very elegant. This beautiful cookware set will immediately improve the appearance of your kitchen.
  2. Nonstick interior and exterior: Cook all sorts of meals with little to no oil. Eat healthier thanks to the food not sticking to the pans. Also, cleanup is super easy.
  3. Ceramic cooking surface: This material resists heat up to 570 degrees Fahrenheit. You will be able to cook many different recipes that you couldn’t with other pans with lower heat resistance.
  4. Price point: This set is considerably more affordable than the hard-anodized aluminum one while having 2 more pieces.

 What not to like?

  1. Special Care: Ceramic cookware requires special care to avoid stains and warping. Customers who have bought this set recommend to season pans before using them as well as to avoid temperature fluctuations such as rinsing a hot pan with cold water.
  2. Handles: There have been multiple complaints of the handles loosening up.
  3. Metal utensils should be avoided.

Final remarks:

The set has a great price point. However, all the special care that has to be done to maintain it, as well as the problems reported with the handles are a deal-breaker. If you are a person with a busy life, maybe stay clear of this set since you will have to do a lot of things to keep them looking good and performing well.
