Cuisinart 59-10R Elements 10-Piece Cookware Set

I´ve mentioned this set before as one of the best ceramic cookware sets. These pans are beyond incredible. The price/value relationship is great. It has the price of a medium set and you get one of the most trustable ceramic sets on the market.

The look is contemporary and stylish, and the bright cherry red just improves these qualities.

Normally the big issue with ceramic is the lack of durability. Nonetheless, this set can last intact for at least three years. Also, the ceramic coating doesn’t peel even when you overheat.

One recommendation with these pans is to use medium heat to cook. The heat conduction is so powerful that most of the consumers have reported burned meals the first time they tested the pans.

Some interesting features:

  • PTFE/PFOA free and petroleum-free
  • Cuisinart Easy Grip Silicone Handle
  • Oven safe up to 350 degrees
  • Tempered Glass Cover
  • Dishwasher Safe – I highly suggest not putting it in the dishwasher. Remember that it’s really easy to clean them. Handwashing will always increase the lifespan of your pans.

What’s included in this set?

  • 5-quart sauce pan
  • 5-quart sauce pan
  • 3-quart sauté pan
  • 8-quart stockpot
  • 8-inch skillet
  • 10-inch skillet

Cuisinart 66-14 Chef’s Classic Nonstick Hard-Anodized

This is a sturdy cookware set. It is particularly good if you have gas stove. It can resist flames better than ceramic or stainless steel set without ruining the exterior.

Something really important about this set: it isn’t dishwasher safe. I don’t think that you would need it because the Quantium nonstick coating is superb.

If for some reason there are leftovers stuck to the pans you only need to soak the pans for 15 minutes and that’s it.

Some interesting features:

  • Hard-anodized exterior with aluminum core. Heats incredibly fast and you should cook in low heat.
  • Quantanium nonstick interior. Works well with little amount of oil. It’s tougher than a normal Teflon coating.
  • Riveted stainless-steel handles stay cool on the stovetop. These are definitely resistant handles but are a little uncomfortable to use.
  • Tight-fitting, break-resistant tempered glass covers for easy monitoring of cooking food.

What’s included in this set?

  • 1-1/2 saucepan
  • 3-qt saucepan
  • 8’ skillet
  • 10’ skillet
  • 4-qt sauté
  • 9-qt stockpot
  • 7-3/4-in steamer insert
  • 9-1/2-in pasta steamer insert

This is the 14 pieces set but you can find different combinations of pieces. The Cuisinart Classic Hard Anodized has sets from 7 pieces to 17 pieces. All the pots and pans come with a cover.

Cuisinart MCP-12N Multiclad Pro Stainless Steel

The Cuisinart Multiclad Pro has all the features of a top class stainless steel cookware set. Most other sets with this quality on the market are twice as expensive.

What I like most of this set is the look. It isn’t the classic shiny finish; instead, it has a brushed matte finish that makes it look contemporary and elegant.

Some interesting features:

  • The polished cooking surface that doesn’t lose color, reacts with food or alters flavors.
  • Cookware also features cool grip handles secured with stainless steel rivets and self-basting, tight-fitting lids.
  • The construction includes the unsurpassed heat conductivity of the aluminum core. It ensures maximum heat retention and even heat distribution, eliminating hot spots
  • Oven safe up to 550F.
  • Dishwasher safe. Even the covers are dishwasher safe.
  • Lifetime Warranty- This set will last many years and can even be passed to another generation.

What’s included in this set?

  • 1-1/2 covered saucepan
  • 3-quart covered saucepan
  • 8-inch open skillet
  • 10-inch open skillet
  • 3-1/2-quart covered sauté pan
  • 8-quart covered stockpot

So, what is the best Cuisinart cookware set?

In the end, this question will be answered according to your needs and preferences. All these sets are the best in their material category.

If you want a couple of quick tips before deciding, here they come:

If you hate to clean the leftovers and using the dishwasher -which consumes energy and water- you should pick the ceramic one.

If you have a gas stove or you want durability and a nonstick surface all in one, your best option is the hard-anodized.

But if you are a classic cooker and want a set that lasts for many decades, stainless steel is your right choice.

Cuisinart is a brand that never lets you down.
