I actually purchased this as a gift for friends who love pasta. They were delighted with the gift and told me it was perfect for preparing pasta just for themselves or when they have guests.Read More
I bought this set to replace an older pasta pot set that I had that was worn and starting to rust. This set is stainless steel and is nice looking, but it works very well and makes cooking and draining pasta easy with no rusty water or cleanup. Very happy with this purchase.Read More
Bottom started scratching earlier than I expected, but otherwise good.Read More
These pots save having to grab a colander every time you need to boil something and drain off the water. they work not only for pasta, but for blanching vegetables for freezing, straining stock, and many other uses. Just the right size, too, for a two person household.Read More
I love this cookware. Does exactly what it said it would do as well as what I wanted it to do. So far quality seems to be good and hopefully will last a good long time.Read More
Ordered this as gift for married daughter. Within 2 weeks, she called to say handle had fallen off and had to throw it out. This was a waste of money.Read More
These were 'loosely' intended as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law, as she absolutely loves my pasta pot with a built-in, locking strainer lid, but I will now keep these for myself instead. IMO, the quality here simply isn't gift-worthy. I'm not crazy about the sharp posts that protrude from the side of the pot to catch the lid for locking, plus the fit is not very tight...shaking the pot while draining can actually shake the lid lose enough to fall off into the sink. Plus the lid itself has cheesy cut-out slots to slid over the posts, not impressed with that either. I DO love the stainless steel finish (even with the ding it encountered from the manufacturer as their packaging is not great) =( as well as the aluminum encapsulated bottom and overall low profile. I also love the size of the small pot. They were in a big need of a good scrubbing too...there was a tremendous amount of factory grime left on them straight out of the box - unlike anything I've ever seen - made in China! My old aluminum pasta pot has a non-stick finish that eventually chipped and peeled off - not ideal - not sure what the yahoos designing these products are thinking! But what I LOVE about the old pot is the locking lid with a lip built into it that slides over the lip on the pot - no pegs - nothing to scrape your hands on, or slice-up your sponges with and difficult to clean. With cooking supplies - you get what you pay for - this rarely varies. If you're looking for an inexpensive set, I do recommend this product.Read More
I love my pasta pots. Well made, and locking lids make draining easy. I also use the smaller pot for potatos works great. I would recommend to anyone who likes pasta, but good for other stuff also. Great Price.Read More
Love the design of these pots. Now I can toss the too big, awkward-sized, plastic colander I was using!Read More

How to Season Stainless Steel Pans
While most cooks know that you need to season your food before it will taste good, new cooks might not know that you can also season your pots and pans. Seasoning is a process in which you prepare a pan or other cookware before you use it for the first time. When you season stainless steel pots and pans, you are filling the pores of the pan's surface with carbonized oil, which blocks the oxidation process and therefore keeps the cookware from rusting or pitting. In addition, seasoning helps to prevent food from sticking to the pan. The following steps will teach you how to season and protect your stainless steel pots and pans so they will last longer and work better.

How to Break in a Stainless Steel Frying Pan

High-quality stainless steel cookware may not be the best for cooking things like eggs, but for the most flavorful searing of fish, meat and vegetables, stainless steel fry pans are unrivaled.
