The one feature that most everyone loves is that it is dishwasher safe. Most hard anodized cookware, although very easy to clean, is not dishwasher safe. The other feature not easily found is the TechnoResist anti warp base.
The set includes a Dutch over with a glass lid, three different sized sauce pans with glass lids and two different sized fry pans. Also included are two cooking utensils.
This cookware set has the features that T-fal owners like the most. It has the unique t-fal thermo spot indicator. This shows when the pan is at the perfect temperature to add your meat to get that perfect sear. This helps to seal in the flavor and to keep the meat from drying out. It also has the prometal pro nonstick interior. This makes it exceptionally durable and scratch resistant.
Metal utensils can be used during the cooking process without causing damage to the pans. The anti-warp base provides even distribution of heat and protects the pan from warping when exposed to wide temperature changes.
The comfortable silicone handles are oven safe up to 350 degrees. Of course, it has all the other outstanding t-fal features that make the non-stick pans safe to use. It is free of cadmium, lead, and PFOA. It also looks very classy in the kitchen with the gray color blending in with the rest of your kitchen appliances.
There is a limited lifetime warranty on the set of pans.
All but one review gave this set of hard anodized pans the highest rating possible. It was highly recommended for its non-scratch surface for being the best you could find on the market. Everyone said they would definitely recommend this set. The one surprising thing was that almost everyone said that they knew they were dishwasher safe, but they preferred to wash them by hand the majority of the time.
Some people occasionally put them in the dishwasher, but since they were so easy to clean they usually just washed them by hand. It sounds as though some dishwashers leave spots on them. The pans are so beautiful that most people don’t like the spotted look.
Most commented on how they loved them because you can actually use metal objects and it doesn’t affect the surface at all. One owner that does a lot of cooking and has several sets of cookware said she preferred it to the higher priced non-stick set she owns.
There was one owner who had a problem with the pan sliding on an electric stove when it was jarred. She didn’t say if it was a stove with coils or a glass top stove. I am not sure what she meant by jarred, or if her other pans wouldn’t slide if “jarred”. This set does have a return policy, so I would recommend if you have any problems with it or any other set you buy to return it.
