Winner, winner - chicken dinner!

This huge 14-piece stainless steel cookware set from Cuisinart is absolutely a "best for your money" purchase!


In fact, it's such a great deal that this set is highly recommended as a wedding gift, bridal shower gift, or a house-warming gift.  (and yes, it makes a great gift for YOURSELF as well!)

These pots and pans are a bit lighter than traditional stainless steel cookware.  For me, since I have tendonitis and carpal tunnel, is a BIG plus.  I feel no strain picking these pots and pans up or when washing them (elderly and seniors will LOVE this set!)


In-Depth Review

What an AMAZING stainless steel cookware set! If you can find this cookware set for under $200, like we found here on Amazon today, you should GRAB it.

This is usually a $400+ set of stainless steel pots and pans!

This set is one of those rare opportunities in life when you get WAY more than you paid for.

As far as our thoughts on this cookware set:

Easy to clean (but not AS easy as this stainless steel cookware set) and it’s dishwasher safe.

It’s also oven-safe, AND – get this – these pots and pans are FREEZER-safe, too!

What’s In The Box?

This stainless steel cookware set includes:

  • 1.5-quart and 3-quart saucepans
  • 8-inch and 10-inch skillets
  • 4-quart saute
  • 9-quart stockpot
  • 7.75-inch steamer insert
  • 9.5-inch pasta steamer insert
