It features a thick, anodized-aluminum core that provides an excellent cooking base designed to hold and distribute heat evenly across the cooking surface. Its hardened structure resists warping and handles excessive heat very well. The interior is coated with a thick layer of Dupont’s Autograph 2 nonstick Teflon.
Dupont’s Autograph 2 Teflon coating consists of three layers. The first layer is a top coat that forms the cooking surface. Under this layer is a center reinforcement layer that provides enhanced scratch resistance. The final layer is the primer, which enhances the strength of the Teflon coating and further resists scratches. The Autograph 2 Teflon coating is an important selling point because other manufacturers can’t offer this sturdy of a nonstick coating. The Cookware Set provides this coating, which means it offers twice the cooking performance and four times the scratch resistance than its competition.
Unlike some of Anolon’s other cookware sets, the Anolon Advanced Bronze Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set features easy-grip handles that can be comfortably grasped when on high heat. Some sets have metal handles that are impossible to grasp without getting burned. Analon’s brass cookware set does not require oven mitts to remove a pan from the heat.
Another positive feature of the Cookware Set is its clear covers, which allow monitoring of food without taking the top off. They are also nicely sloped, so water naturally drops down the cover and back into the pan. It would have been nice if Analon provided a steam hole for each cover, but these covers don’t offer that. Their glass tops don’t offer any form of ventilation.
Thanks to the nonstick coating, cleanup is easy. Anolon does not recommend placing the Cookware Set in the dishwasher. Hand wash each piece and, if necessary, soak a stubborn pan before washing. As with all Teflon-based cookware, never use a harsh cleanser or scrub brush on the interior or exterior.
The Anolon Advanced Bronze Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set has three things going for it. First, it’s looks; it looks absolutely beautiful. Second, its performance; while not considered top-of-the-line, it’s not trying to be, yet it does its job very well. Third, its value; for the money, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better cookware set.
