Anolon Titanium Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set
9 new from $289.50
It is manufactured using a thick aluminum base as the core metal and a Titanium composite exterior that provides an easy-to-clean and highly-durable surface. The exterior metal is a charcoal gray and scratch and dent resistant.
While this set is durable, it is not recommended that it be put through the dishwasher. The manufacturer’s instructions recommend cleaning with no more than 120f and 140f water temperatures and to use mild detergent that contains a phosphate content of less than 7 1/2 percent. Regardless of the manufacturer recommendations, many consumer reports claim to have put this set through the dishwasher numerous times without a problem. If you purchase this set, make your own decision on how you plan to clean each item.
The interior consists of a nonstick, two-layer coating of DuPont Autograph that provides a stick-resistant surface. The Cookware Set is designed for years of use with consistent performance.
Each pan and skillet in the Cookware Set contains stainless steel handles held on by rivets. At medium and high temperatures, these handles do get hot to the touch. At higher temperatures, it will be necessary to use an oven mitt with the handles. It also comes with four stainless steel covers that, much like the handles, require an oven mitt or pot holders to guard against burns when removing the top at higher temperatures.
The biggest advantage of the Anolon Titanium Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set is its economical value. While it’s not the highest quality set on the market, for the money, it’s an excellent value that performs well. Its thick aluminum base resists warping and limits hot and cold spots.
An American made product, Analon is a division of the Meyer Corporation, which is based in Vallejo, California. Analon is known for striking a balance between economic value and structural quality. The Cookware Set comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
The Anolon Titanium Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set is designed primarily for those who are seeking good quality at a reasonable price.
