these are easy to clean and store. before using for the first time, wash with warm soapy water and dry immediately. use a clean paper towel and rub some oil on the inside cooking surface (i used coconut oil). Allow cookware to cool completly before washing. i dry the inside with a paper towel and they reapply oil.
you can put these in the dishwasher, but i prefer hand washing. dishwashing may dull the shine of the pans, and since i hang my pots and pans, i prefer to keep the shine.
i bought this set because it is made in the USA and I have not been disappointed. Get yourself a set, you won't regret it.
-The cookware is heavy and sturdy with good handles that don't get hot while cooking.
-Though I have not done any scientific testing to check this, heat application appears to be pretty uniform across the bottom of the pots.
-The upper edge is flat with no funky rounding off that would inhibit cleaning.
-The lids fit securely without being too tight.
-The pots/pans come in sizes you actually want. For me, this meant no 1qt sauce pan (which would be too small) but instead a 2qt & 3 qt (I use the 3qt a lot), an 8qt pot instead of a 5/6 qt dutch oven (since you need an 8qt one anyway, and pretty much anything you can put in a 5/6 qt also can go in the 8qt), and a 12in pan instead of the usual 10in found in most sets.
-Finally, though not really part of the function of the product, the fact that you can still get quality cookware at a decent price (compared to, for instance, All-Clad that costs almost double this ammount) that is made in the United States is a big plus for me.
Also, the pans clean up easily (although you will need Bar Keeper's friend to remove some discoloration if that bothers you). Very sticky stuff comes off with a wipe after a 10-15 minute soak in water, and baked-on oil residue comes off with a Scotch pad and a good dish detergent.
One thing to note on the saute pan is that it is a bit larger than its All-Clad peer - sides are higher and it is a bit wider in diameter - but it still weighs about the same. I like the larger size since it allows me to fit more in it. But you know what that means: There is a trade-off in terms of thickness as the All-Clad is thicker than the American Kitchen pan (I think All-Clad is ~2.3 mm thick and this one is ~1.8 mm - I don't have exact numbers). This matters if you are concerned about even heat distribution. I am sure that the All-Clad pan is better at this, and some reviews of their pans have spoken of this as a key benefit of using tri-ply pans in general and All-Clad in particular. Nonetheless, I did not think it was worth spending an extra $300 - $400 to have smaller yet thicker pans. I like the higher sides as it prevents splattering and I have not had problems with food burning or cooking unevenly.Read more ›
