Chef’s Classic Stainless Steel Cookware Set has an aluminum encapsulated base that heats up quickly and distributes heat as described in the product description. This means your food cooks the same all around the pan. It can also withstand extremely hot temperatures and it is oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The aluminum core is bonded to the stainless steel interior and the assembly has a brushed stainless steel exterior. Stainless steel won’t discolor or react with food, so this cookware set should last you a while.
A few other good-to-know features: Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Stainless Steel Cookware Set features cool-grip handles, tight-fitting lids (dishwasher safe), and drip-free tapered edges.
Keep in mind that stainless steel cookware does not have a non-stick coating. However, many people prefer stainless steel because some non-stick pans use chemicals in their coating that could be toxic in extreme heat.
Robert L. Wolke, Ph.D., professor emeritus of chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh and author of What Einstein Told His Cook: The Science of Cooking Explainedspoke to Good Housekeeping about Teflon, the chemical compound often used to make the nonstick coating on cookware.
“There’s a whole chemical set of compounds that will break off when the Teflon is heated enough to break down,” Wolke said. “Many of them are fluorine-containing compounds, which as a class are generally toxic.”
Chemours, the current owner of Teflon (Dupont invented it in 1938), recommends heating nonstick pans no more than 500 degrees Fahrenheit, but says the nonstick coating will start to deteriorate at 660 degrees Fahrenheit. Although it seems extremely hot, a preheated pan can reach this temperature in about five minutes.
