We just moved and I decided to sell everything we had and buy all new kitchen appliances. Everything I had was old so it was time to upgrade. I had read so many articles and asked many people their opinions and finally came to a conclusion. So far I have been really happy with the items I have purchased. Today I will talk about my new cookware that I love!!
When you are looking for cookware, there are so many types -Hard Anodized, ceramic, stainless steel, teflon and more. I wanted something that didn’t stick and didn’t need a lot of oil. I had stainless steel and I did not want that again. So I bought Circulon Genesis Hard-Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set
- Set includes: 1-Quart and 2-Quart Covered Saucepans, 3-Quart Covered Saute, 6-Quart Covered Stockpot, 8-1/2-Inch and 10-Inch Skillets
- The cookware set features heavy-duty, hard-anodized aluminum construction that provides fast, even heating and outstanding durability
- TOTAL Food Release System features PFOA-free metal utensil safe DuPont Autograph on raised circles for superior cooking release and effortless cleanup
- This cookware set’s stainless steel handles are solidly double riveted for strength; the shatter-resistant glass lids lock in heat and moisture
- Oven safe to 500 degrees Fahrenheit
I love these pots! This set is just $149.99 on Amazon! Nothing sticks and the food cooks so evenly. I even cooked a scrambled egg with no Pam and nothing stuck to the pan. They were truly easy to clean. The only thing I don’t like about these pots is that they are not dishwasher safe. But since nothing sticks to them – they are very easy to clean.
I also bought a large Rachael Ray Enamel on Steel 12-Quart Covered Stockpot. I needed a pot to make soups and large batches of tomato sauce. It is a ceramic pot and it looks really pretty. I also like that it is Induction suitable and oven safe to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. But I found it harder to clean. It is also not dishwasher safe. I turned on the burner and the oil and onion I added burnt on the bottom of the pan. I just feel like it is so delicate. You can’t use anything abrasive on it.
After a quick search on the internet I learned I could add some water and baking soda to the pot and bring it to a boil. I then used a wooden spoon to loosen the burnt stuff from the bottom. I am sure that I need to lower the heat when I cook with this pot. So I will not buy anymore ceramic pots.
In conclusion – I am hooked on the Hard-Anodized Nonstick cookware. They are truly nonstick and feel more durable than ceramic cookware. I also love the grooves in the Circulon Hard Anodized cookware. Remember not to put them in the dishwasher and never use metal utensils when cooking.
What is your favorite cookware?
