Colorful, practical, and comprehensive, this 10-piece cookware set from Rachael Ray covers all the bases for stovetop cooking, from boiling pasta to sautéing chicken to simmering a marinara sauce to frying bacon. The set includes both 1-1/2-quart and 3-quart saucepans, a 6-quart stockpot, and a 2-3/4-quart, 10-inch sauté pan, all with lids. In addition, the set provides an 8-inch skillet and a 10-inch skillet.
Constructed in durable aluminum, the pots and pans resist dents and corrosion while conducting heat with efficiency. Porcelain enamel coats the exterior of each piece in the set for broad heat distribution, free of hot spots. A nonstick interior ensures hassle-free cooking and cleaning with all cookware pieces. One long aluminum handle rivets securely to the side of each skillet, the saucepans, and the sauté for transferring food to and from the burner. The long handles each have a hole installed for hanging purposes. For moving the saucepot, two loop-style aluminum handles affix to the pot's sides. Silicone rubber covers all cookware handles for a soft and ergonomically friendly grip. The cookware lids, manufactured in clear tempered glass, allow the chef to visually monitor cooking without releasing heat or flavor. The shatter-proof lids remove with top-mounted handles like those on the stockpot. The cookware sustains oven temperatures up to 400 degrees F. Made in Thailand, Rachael Ray offers a limited lifetime warranty for the set. Upon shipping, the set measures 23 by 13-1/2 by 12-1/3 inches and weighs 19-1/5 pounds. --Jessica Reuling

This cookware set is an exceptional value, including all of the pans needed to equip your kitchen with the most used cooking pieces. As the set contains only basic pieces, you'll really use each and every pan. It includes saucepans for whisking a homemade sauce or cooking your morning oatmeal, a big stockpot for soups, stews or boiling pasta, and skillets (probably the most used pan in any kitchen) that will help you turn out perfect crepes or a simple grilled cheese sandwich. The set also includes a sauté pan, a wide, straight-sided pan that can perform many of the functions of a skillet but features deep sides for extra capacity, perfect for one dish meals. Start your dish in this pan by sautéing onions and browning meat, then add your liquid and other ingredients into the same pan to finish on the stovetop or in the oven.
