A wonderful starter set for anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, this 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set - Lifetime Warranty provides an array of everyday essentials. The set consists of a 1-1/2-quart covered saucepan, a 3-quart covered saucepan, an 8-inch and 10-inch open skillet, an 8-quart covered stockpot, and a universal covered steamer insert that fits both the 1-1/2-quart and 3-quart pan. Use the saucepans for making homemade marinara sauce, the stock pot for boiling pasta or cooking soups and stews, and the skillets for making pancakes or sauteing vegetables. The steamer insert allows for healthfully steaming broccoli, pea pods, and other fresh vegetables. Beautifully designed, the three-layer metal cookware features an interior and exterior layer of premium-grade 18/10 stainless steel with a multi-element alloy aluminum core (along the bottom and up the sides) for fast, even heating and thorough heat distribution. Even more, the brushed stainless-steel exterior resists scratches for long-lasting good looks, whether on the stovetop or hanging from a pot rack. The cookware's solid stainless-steel handles come riveted for strength, offer an ergonomic shape for a comfortable grip, and feature air-flow technology to help them stay cooler to the touch than typical handles. Secure-fitting stainless-steel lids for the pots and steamer insert offer added convenience, working to trap in heat and moisture for efficient cooking and delicious results. The cookware can be used on all stovetop surfaces, including induction, and it withstands an oven's heat up to 500 degrees F. When finished, the multi-ply clad stainless-steel cookware cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher, and it carries a limited lifetime warranty.
