Product Description

Size: 10 Piece

A wonderful starter set for anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, this 10-piece collection of cookware by Cooks Standard 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.

From the Manufacturer

Cooks Standard Multi-Ply Clad Stainless-Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set

Beautifully crafted from durable stainless steel, this 10-piece cookware set from Cooks Standard not only offers stylish good looks, but it also provides exceptional cooking convenience. A thoughtful gift idea for anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, the collection supplies an array of everyday essentials.

10-Piece Cookware Set
10-piece cookware set provides everyday essentials. View larger.


  • 8-inch open skillet
  • 10-inch open skillet
  • 1-1/2-quart covered saucepan
  • 3-quart covered saucepan
  • 8-quart covered stockpot
  • Universal covered steamer insert (fits both the 1-1/2-quart and 3-quart saucepans)

Use the saucepans to make breakfast oatmeal or homemade marinara sauce, to cook pasta or rice, or to heat up a side of vegetables. With the steamer insert in place, the saucepans can be used to healthfully steam-cook anything from green beans, sugar-snap peas, and asparagus to broccoli, carrots, and baby red potatoes. The stockpot comes in handy when cooking a large batch of soup, stew, or chili. Due to its large size, the stock pot also works well for boiling corn on the cob or creating aromatic stocks with fresh herbs. Finally, the open 8-inch and 10-inch skillets provide wide flat bases and gently curved sides that allow for flipping omelets or sliding grilled cheese sandwiches gracefully from the pan to a plate.

High-Quality Design

What is Multi-Ply Clad Metal Construction?

Multi-ply clad metal construction is a combination of 18/10 surgical stainless steel with a multi-element aluminum core that creates a permanent bond of metal, so heat passes through the whole pan body from the bottom up the side walls, not just at the bottom, for maximum cooking performance.

Aluminum Core

Durable Stainless Steel with Even-Heating Aluminum Core

As part of Cooks Standard's Multi-Ply Clad Stainless Steel cookware, the collection features three layers of clad metal for high-quality performance and excellent cooking results. The interior surface of the cookware provides a smooth, hard layer of premium-grade 18/10 stainless steel, while the stainless-steel exterior offers an elegant mirror-polished finish for enhanced visual appeal.

Stay-Cool Handles
Stainless-steel handles stay cool to the touch. View larger.

Best of all, an inner core of multi-element alloy aluminum comes sandwiched between the interior and exterior layer of stainless steel for faster heating and excellent heat distribution. The aluminum core extends from the bottom all the way up the side walls for total coverage. It's the best of both--durable stainless steel for strength combined with the fast, thorough heating of aluminum.

Stay-Cool Handles with Air-Flow Technology

Thoughtfully designed, the cookware's solid stainless-steel handles come riveted for strength and provide an open V-shaped design with air-flow technology that keeps the handle cooler and more comfortable to hold when cooking on the stovetop. The long handles on the pans and the generous loop side handles on the pots make the vessels easy to move around on the stovetop or to safely lift and carry, even when full. Though the handles stay cooler to the touch, pot holders or oven mitts are still recommended.

Brushed Stainless-Steel Bases
Scratch-resistant brushed stainless-steel bases. (Induction compatible.)
Other Highlights

The cookware's matching stainless-steel lids fit securely, helping to trap in heat, moisture, and nutrients, plus they come with loop handles for safe, simple placement or removal. Another thoughtful detail includes the cookware's scratch-resistant stainless-steel bases, which come with a brushed finish and that can be safely used on any type of stovetop, including gas, electric, ceramic glass, even induction. Oven-safe up to 500 degrees F, the cookware offers outstanding versatility, transitioning effortlessly from cooking on the stovetop to browning or finishing in the oven (not broiler safe).

Whether cooking up a storm for the holidays or entertaining friends on the weekend, or simply making after-work meals for the family, the 10-piece cookware set provides just the right pieces to make all your culinary endeavors a pleasure. When finished, the pieces clean up easily by hand or in the dishwasher and hanging holes on the handles allow for showcasing the pieces from a pot rack when not in use. Sleek and stylish, Cooks Standard's Multi-Ply Clad Stainless Steel line of cookware carries a limited lifetime warranty.

I don't know if you are at the same stage I was: I wanted to avoid the potential perils of non-stick coatings and yet felt a little apprehensive about using Stainless Steel. There are some very negative reviews for similar products, along the lines that they don't cook anything "right" and a jackhammer is required as standard cleaning equipment. You'll be pleased to know that neither could be further from the truth in my experience using this set (the Cooks Standard Multi-Ply Clad Stainless-Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set). While I don't deny that a select few may have had a negative experience, I hope this review will put your concerns to rest.

I am a first-time Stainless Steel user. I am not a prize-winning chef. I have recently switched to cooking whole-foods from scratch; and I mean recently. So I am not only behind on my cooking skills, but I've never used such high-quality equipment before (dollar-store plastic utensils, anyone?). The turning point came when I found little black bits of non-stick coating in my fresh batch of home-made refried beans. Very frustrating. I can't fault the coating because it was over seven years old. At the first sign of a scratch, non-stick cookware is supposed to be replaced. That's one reason why I was looking for a long-life, heavy duty cookware set with NO COATINGS TO SCRATCH. I read one study that said the fumes from non-stick coatings at high temperatures have killed birds in a lab. Nice. So I threw my "toxic" refried beans in the trash and let my hubby know I couldn't cook with the pot anymore. A week later he bought this set for me (at my recommendation)! I guess he likes my refried beans!

If you want to use this set proficiently and aren't used to stainless steel, you'll have to adjust--not lower--your expectations.

I have searched and researched pots and pans forever. I knew what I wanted but could not afford the high price. This was the only set I found that was multi ply under 400. The core goes up the sides, which is usually only found in very expensive cookware. The weight is also nice. Although I did find the smaller frying pan to be a bit too heavy on the handle side. This ment putting the handle a bit over the burner to even out the weight. This cookware does live up to its claim of no hot handles. Even when I had to put it nearer to the burner for the small pan, the handle stayed pretty cool.

My first test for any egg. It cooked wonderfully! If you are not used to stainless it does take time to get used to. Medium heat! The outside does have a mirror finish, so be aware if.. you are tough on your cookware most likely it will scratch. Cleaned up great and dried to its new self.

I inspected each piece very carefully and found not one scratch anywhere. It came very well packaged and very fast. I'm a very pleased cook.

It's now been a year and I was so impressed that I came back to edit my review. After all the abuse my family has put this set through, they still look brand new! I have put them in the dishwasher, scrubbed them ect. The mirror finish still looks great.

Reviewing: Cooks Standard NC-00232 12-Piece Multi-Ply Clad Stainless-Steel​ Cookware Set. (I have all the items, except I bought them separately).

VALUE. I've been wanting a set of tri-ply stainless cookware and never understood the premium people were willing to pay for All-Clad. I was really glad to find this brand - I got the 10-piece set and the 11" deep pan - it was cheaper at the time to buy it separately, than to buy this set that includes it (I think now buying this set is the best value). The sets are a fantastic value, the separate items are a bit more pricey, though. I also ended up ordering the 13" "wok" (chef's pan with dome lid) - it might not be a true wok, but it's a great risotto vessel or for anything else that will require "tossing"!

CONSTRUCTION/QUALITY. Anyway, these are so well made. And attention to detail is excellent - these are designed by smart people. I also have a couple of tri-ply Le Creuset sauce pots and Cooks Standard is every bit as good and I prefer Cooks Standard shapes of handles, design.

DESIGN. Ergonomic handles. I never liked All-Clad skillet handles - skinny and painful. These pans have comfy handles. Every pan and pot in these sets has a FLARED RIM - very important for drip-free pouring. I won't even buy stainless pots/pans without the feature anymore, regardless of the value. The finish is brilliant - I thought they were photo shopped until I received them :) The interior is matte (brushed), which is also good. All the handles - pots, pans and lids (except the steamer basket lid) have the air-flow "stay cool" design - very helpful and they also look stylish. The rivets are all stainless, at least on the inside.

Like many other reviewers I decided to make the transition from teflon to stainless steel cookware for several reasons. I was tired of replacing cookware every 3 or 4 years, and I keep reading all these articles about the dangers of ingesting the teflon coating, so I knew I had to go back to my roots and go back to stainless. I researched so many things before I made a decision, and I knew I wanted all clad construction rather than just encapsulated bottoms, but most sets were way outside my budget. I came across three sets that caught my eye because of good reviews and being within my price range. I narrowed it down to this Cooks Standard set, Tramontina and Duxtop. Honestly, the reason I chose this one over the other two was because it came with the steamer insert which was a piece I really needed. The steamer is a piece I use almost daily so it was nice to find it included in a complete set rather than having to buy a separate piece. I have a small family and this set has all the pieces I really need,along with a few pieces of cast iron cookware I use to compliment this set. I have used every piece of this set so far except the larger frying pan, and I must say that I am over the moon. The pieces are really beautiful and sturdy. Cooking is even, constant, and quick. I was afraid I might burn a few things at first since I have been using non-stick cookware for over 20 years, but that never happened! Even when I cooked rice, it came out perfect and fluffy! Cleanup has been a breeze! A simple soak for 5 or 10 minutes and everything washes clean with ease. It's perfectly normal to see some rainbowing or water spots on stainless steel cookware, but as others have mentioned, a spot of barkeepers friend restores the original mirror shine with ease.Read more ›
