If you are in need of a great kitchen set that includes all the basics then this is the right set for you. This is a 17 piece, stainless steel set. The set is affordable which makes it suitable for all households and it is a good set for small to large families.
The set is hugely popular on USA markets. With over 700 customer reviews on amazon alone that is mostly positive, you can bet that this is indeed a cookware set that is high in demand. The huge popularity of this set mans that you will probably find it available on the market for a very long time to come. Just in case you might want to extend your set after the initial purchase.
The pots and pans in this set are manufactured from 18/10 commercial grade stainless steel. The metal is also bound with a heavy gauge impact bonded aluminum encapsulated bottom. All handles included in the piece are also made of stainless steel and is firmly fitted to lids and the sides of the pots and pans. The lids of the cookware set have a stainless edging with tempered glass center which allows you to see foods as they cook. It also has a small pressure vent to reduce pressure while cooking.
Aesthetically this is a very beautiful yet simple set. There are no artworks displayed on the set aside from the Duxtop logo pressed in on the bottom of the vessels and no flashy design features. This set is firstly designed with functionality in mind and then with aesthetics. The stainless set features a chrome and matt finish and is very shiny and modern.
All of the pots and pans in the set are designed with a magnetic field within the encapsulated bottom which makes it functional for cooking on induction stoves. The pot will heat due to friction created by the bond of the base of the vessel and the induction cooktop. Impact gonding of 800 - 15000 tons are used to press in the cookware bottom to ensure durability of the base of the pot.
The stainless steel used in these sets makes them perfectly functional for a variety of cooking sources such as the following;
Stainless steel is highly durable which mean you probably don’t need to do much to keep your pots in good condition. They are perfectly resilient against rust and the metal is unlikely to stain with exception to open flame sources such as gas stoves. The pots are dishwasher safe and you can use any type of detergent or cleaning product when washing your pots. The sturdy materials also make it perfectly fine to scrub your pots with any cleaning tool.
The products included in this 17-piece set are what make this a versatile cookware set. This is a perfect cookware set for small to large families because all of the most used cookware items are included such as the following;
An 8.6 quart stock pot with an anti-slip finish and a tempered glass lid is included in the set. This large pot is perfect for cooking large quantities of foods, cooking lots of pasta or for making fine tasting chunky soups.
The stainless steel boiler basket and steam basket fits inside the stock pot. This combo is perfect for healthy cooking since you can steam cook all food sources.
A stainless steel pasta basket can be fitted on top of the steam basket but is mainly functional for draining water from foods and pasta.
The set includes a 8 and 10 inch frying pan without lids. These frying pans have a beautiful design, firmly fitted handles and are very handy indeed.
1.6 and 2.5 quart sauce pans with lids are included in the set. The fact that the set includes two sauce pans is a very big plus.
The 8.6 quart stock pot is very handy for cooking foods such as rice and veggies although we would have loved to see another stock pot included in the set.
The 5.5 sauté pan with lid looks a lot like the sauce pans but has a smaller diameter and a deeper base for cooking.
Materials - Stainless steel, bonded aluminum and tempered glass
Extras - boiler basket and steam basket, pasta basket, 3 piece kitchen tools
This is a good set if you are a medium to large sized family. But if you need something smaller for a single or couple then the pots included in the set could be a little bit too big. If you are someone that loves a basic set that looks stylish, practical and that is easy to keep clean and maintain then this could be a very good set to buy.
