My Rachael Ray Cookware!

Comments Off, Cooking, by Muir.


The Rachael Ray 10-piece cookware set offers an even heating and a non stick performance but when it comes to durability there are some issues. The set offers a great performance and with the tests done it has shown it evenly distributes heat and maintains a steady simmer and its surface are nonstick. When using it to cook it doesn’t burn food but if only use low medium heat. The cookware cannot be used cookpot of an induction as it doesn’t work.

The cookware set is light in weight and easy to use. Its handles and lids are good but the cookware cannot be washed on a dishwasher as it is not safe. The cookware set is easy to wash using hands this is because of the way its handles have been attached with rivets there may be a collection of food under them. The more you use the cookware it will stain but these stains can be removed using an abrasive cleanser.

The non stick cookware set reviews has shown that this set has a finish of dark gray color like most of the cookware made of aluminum their handles are orange in color and this add up to bring a beautiful color that customers like. The only problem with the cookware set is that they have a problem when it comes to durability and this affects how they look after a short time of using them.

Customers have described the pans to be very light in weight and flimsy feeling of the nonstick finish as it doesn’t last for long. They only last for about a year or two and when washing they start peeling off.

When buying a cookware you need to be very careful and keen before buying. Get information from friends whom you know they have such sets and do your comparison and get to decide the best one to buy. The most important thing to consider is durability and the price of the set you are buying. Seeing Rachael Ray on TV makes things better though!
