It consists of a 1.5 quart and a three quart saucepan. These are good for soups, sauces and vegetables.
It comes with an 8 quart stockpot, which is great for braising meats and making stews that need to be simmered for a long time on the stove top.
It also has a three quart sauté pan for quick sauteing of onions, garlic and other aromatics. The eight and one half inch and the ten inch skillet are perfect for omelets, pancakes, and risottos.
The KitchenAid Gourmet Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set is made of a hard-anodized aluminum, which means that the aluminum’s been treated with a coating of an aluminum oxide, which keeps the aluminum from coming into contact with what’s being cooked. Bare aluminum can corrode and become dirty, and the dirt can get into the food. This treatment also makes the surface of the cookware almost as hard as diamond and makes heating the food more even and efficient.
It has handles made of silicone with stainless steel. They have nonstick surfaces, and while not dishwasher safe, can be used on a stove top that uses gas, solid plate, radiant rings ceramic and halogen to heat. They can be used in ovens up to 400 degrees F, so the cook will have to use other cookware if they wish to bake at higher temperatures. The color is a sleek, dark gray.
The KitchenAid Gourmet Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set comes with a one year “hassle free” warranty, which means that if an item is shown to be defective, KitchenAid will replace or refund it with no hassles.
